Yeah that's Chomsky. I'm not sure if doom9's is the place to discuss it though, you're better off with Kuro5hin, where this presentation has been discussed already.

Chomsky is an intellectual giant, though he uniformly omits evidence contrary to his claims, thus skewing premises to suit his reasoning - recite his conclusions to others at your own risk. The evidence he does produce, however, is extremely dependable.

Check out his book "Deterring Democracy," but with the aforementioned caution...

I know it's off topic but check out 'Rogue State' by William Blum that talks about the exact same issues. Chomsky is not alone in his position.
