I am sorry to have to inform you that the United States of America is not the most powerful nation on the face of the Earth. While you were being amused to death, your government was infiltrated and taken over by people who had a Global Agenda, long before the catch phrase of "Globalization" became common.
Your president (doesn't matter which one)belongs to, and is controlled by powerful, unelected, unseen men sitting behind shiny black doors,looking at the best views of Geneva that money can buy.
They control the USA, lock, stock, and barrel.

I think Micheal Hastings had much more to tell....that's why he didn't escape.
