Part of a series I just uploaded to Profiles In Courage; this episode contains the personal account of Shelby Westbrook, a Tuskegee Airman. There are eleven others whose stories are followed throughout WW II. Shelby’s story starts at 8:51 in the video.
After the end credits in a movie, it’s a given you will see “The persons and events portrayed in this production are fictitious. No similarity to actual persons, living or dead, is intended or should be inferred.”
OK. Fine. I seriously doubt most of us back in ’84 would even have dreamed that the issues, and events we are now confronted with would exist. So many lies which were spoon-fed to us, going further back than the Gulf of Tonkin, have finally been exposed; I invite you to listen closely to the conversation at 48:11. The scene is while on a stake out for a drug bust.
Watch Flashpoint with a different perspective on Government, corruption, and what is “fictitious” or not. There was more truth than rumor about the system contained in that segment. It was nauseating then; “supply and demand”… God help us.
Today, Islamic terrorism far overshadows (as well as having become a part of) the immigration issue. The so-called “War on Drugs” is inferred, and only a part of that discussion.
