THE POWER OF NIGHTMARES is the BBC documentary that has never been released in the US. It argues that much of the threat of terror is a fantasy. J. Hoberman in the Village Voice called it the most widely discussed docu agitprop since Fahrenheit 9/11, and said The Power of Nightmares takes a similarly confrontational stance toward Bush-world disorder. But the counter-narrative offered by this three-part, three-hour BBC account of the so-called war on terror is more complex and seductive.
