In the revealing PBS video documentary The Secret Government, host Bill Moyers exposes the inner workings of a secret government much more vast that most people would ever imagine. Though originally broadcast in 1987, it is even more relevant today. Interviews with respected top military, intelligence, and government insiders reveal both the history and secret objectives of powerful groups in the hidden shadows of our government.

"The National Security Act of '47 gave us the National Security Council. Never have we had a National Security Council so concerned about the nation's security that we're always looking for threats and looking how to orchestrate our society to oppose those threats. National Security was invented, almost, in 1947, and now it has become the prime mover of everything we do as measured against something we invented in 1947."

Beyond even the medical debate over the benefits of fluoride, or an examination of the history and sponsorship of this process, there is a deeper debate taking place. This debate is not over whether or not fluoride is safe or effective, but whether the government should be adding it to the water supply in the first place.

As many argue, this practice amounts to forced medication of the population without their consent, and without regard to the case history or medical circumstances of any of the "patients" (i.e. the general public) who are exposed to this "medication."

Aug. 1 (Bloomberg Law) -- The world's biggest banks are likely to defend lawsuits alleging they manipulated the Libor interest rate by saying the federal government knew it and did nothing, according to Neil Barofsky, former Inspector General for TARP. Rather than put maximum pressure on the banks by suing them individually, the government is likely to try to sidestep arguments it was complicit in the Libor mess by seeking a global settlement, he tells Bloomberg Law's Lee Pacchia. Barofsky is the author of the new book "Bailout: An Inside Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street."
