US revelations, just tip of the iceberg: Todd
Interview with Gwenyth Todd
Fri Nov 1, 2013
Press TV: For the viewers to get a better picture of what is going on, would you care to elaborate a bit more on your story particularly?
Todd: Sure. Under the Bush administration, George Bush had the neoconservatives who were looking for a war with Iran and ironically led in part by former US ambassador to Indonesia Paul Wolfowitz, and they were trying to come up with a way to use the US Navy to start a war with Iran by getting the Iranians to shoot at our ships.
And I stepped in and did what I had to, to stop it.
And as a result, I upset my government very much and the Bahraini government and I will not be returning to either place any time soon.
I am an Australian citizen also.
Yes, they can use this information against you at any point and that is why they are storing it.
And then what they do is they collect huge amounts of information, most of which is never used.
But when it is convenient, they can go back and do a search and pull out all sorts of information, bits and pieces to drive a policy in the direction they want to.

“There is only one art, whose sole criterion is the power, the authenticity, the revelatory insight, the courage and suggestiveness with which it seeks its truth. Thus, from the standpoint of the work and its worth it is irrelevant to which political ideas the artist as a citizen claims allegiance, which ideas he would like to serve with his work or whether he holds any such ideas at all.”
