The Rise of History’s Biggest Empire

This first episode of teleSUR’s new documentary-style investigative series, presented by Abby Martin, explores the US empire, its rise to world hegemony and its impact on people and the planet. Meanwhile, it examines the interlocking uses of war and capitalism as tools for the benefit of the few, at the grave expense of the many.

Future episodes of the “Empire Files” will cover local and global issues linked to the empire, its endless war on terror, and its disastrous impact on human and civil rights at home and abroad.
