Who should be responsible for US foreign policy?

I just saw the documentary "War Made Easy" which was excellent and I strongly recommend. I was struck by the words of former Oregon Senator Wayne Morse, who believed that the people of the United States should decide US foreign policy. Incidentally he was one of only two Senators to vote against the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution (Alaska's Ernest Gruening was the other), which authorized an expansion of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. See his words below:


War Made Easy reaches into the Orwellian memory hole to expose a 50-year pattern of government deception and media spin that has dragged the United States into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq. You can watch it here:

It wasn't a shot...

I just suddenly realized that the moniker made a perfect play on words...

And, I could just see none pointing that out...

The Council on Foreign Relations. Just look at the CFR representation in every administration. Look at the CFR representation in Congress. Look at the CFR membership in mainstream media. In banking. In major corporations.

How could a private organization of slightly over 4000 members have that much power? Did someone say conspiracy?
