What WikiLeaks Reveal about Corporatism Dominating American Foreign Policy - OpEdNews


"Obviously corporate dominance over Washington is nothing new.  But, these cables give us an inside look at the inner-workings of the decisions that get made around the world.  And time after time, we see that US diplomats consult with the executives of some of the largest corporations to determine how to deal with conflicts in other countries.  These cables also demonstrate the disturbing trend of how our government views any threat to corporate America as a threat to the United States, which is absurd. Just because we know that corporations and US officials have merged, doesn't mean we understand the full extent to which it affects decisions that are made or the implications of those decisions. 
"Also, the mainstream media has been ignoring the most significant revelations exposed by these cables, which is why I feel it's essential to write about them.  People need to know the level of corruption their government is involved in."
