Eisenhower warned us

[Op-Ed]

Since the overthrow of the Kennedy administration in 1963 the military-industrial complex that President Dwight Eisenhower warned of as he departed office has been running the United States.

Anyone who thinks otherwise is deluded.

Evidence of this can be clearly seen in the case of the prison at the Guantanamo naval base. Although the president of the United States is formally designated as the commander in chief the fact is that no president in the last 50 years has been able to rein or control the Pentagon.

The Guantanamo prison is a military jail set up by the U.S. Department of Defense and isn´t under the authority of the attorney general of the United States or any other civilian including the titular commander in chief. This is why we have witnessed President Obama go back and forth about closing the facility in an attempt to hide the fact that it is totally run by the military. Neither Obama or in-coming president Donald Trump has the power to do anything about it.

Of course they can't admit that to the public because it would expose the real nature of the government of the United States -- which is ruled by the armed forces for military contractors, previously known a merchants of death.

This is why wars like Viet Nam and Afghanistan can continue from one president to another year-after-year without let up. Who will dare cancel all those billions of dollars in contracts. Guantanamo will only be closed when the military says so and not before.
