(Canscene) –An excerpt from Leonardo Di Caprio’s forthcoming environmental documentary The 11th Hour. R. James Woolsey, former director of the CIA, in an interview, says:

This country (USA) can move awfully fast if it wants to keep in mind that after December 7, 1941, Roosevelt went to Jimmy Byrnes and said you’re my deputy president for mobilizing the economy. Anybody crosses you, they cross me. Within six months, Detroit was completely retooled, not making cars anymore, making military trucks, tanks, fighter aircraft, and in three years and, eight months from the beginning of the war, we had mobilized, we had defeated Imperial Japan, Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany together with the British and our other allies, and had begun demobilization. Three years and eight months.
