Overview

Echoing Malcolm X commenting on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Churchill (American Indian studies, U. of Colorado at Boulder) sees September 11th as "the chickens coming home to roost." Anticipating the shock such a sentiment is likely to elicit from Americans largely ignorant of the role of their government in the world, he seeks to preempt America's "collective, narcissistic self exaltation" (in the words of Daniel Goldhagen) by presenting two comprehensive chronologies of U.S. military actions at home and abroad from 1776 to 2003 and of U.S. "obstructions, subversions, violations and refusals of international legality" since World War II. A brief introductory essay considers issues raised by America's collective ignorance and the failure of the left to adequately confront U.S. violence and illegality.
