Dr. Robert Greer reviews Pay Any Price: Greed, Power and Endless War by James Risen

“If you want to read a book that will make you cringe, or even, perhaps, to make your hair stand on end, then Pay Any Price: Greed, Power and Endless War by James Risen is a must read.

“Risen’s book has a simple premise: ever since 9/11 America has fought a politically driven, endless war on terrorism – a war that seems to seek out enemies everywhere and never leads to a lasting peace.  In Pay Any Price, Risen explores the unbelievable cost of such a war, and defines how our government has squandered tax dollars in the name of fighting terrorism, when in fact all the government has really done since 9/11 (and that includes both Republican and Democrat administrations)  is siphon trillions of dollars out of our pockets in order to prop up a homeland security-industrial complex at home, pay off Middle Eastern thugs and extremists who in fact hate us, feather their own nest, and  risk the security, health, safety and welfare of U.S. citizens.”

In the radio book review above, Dr. Greer outlines from the book misdeeds on the part of the last two presidents, the ongoing campaign to discredit the author, and the suppression of troubling facts about U.S. policy.  

Dr. Greer concludes: “If you are interested in the dark places our republic might be headed, you must read Pay Any Price.”
