He's right that the US has used it's power to inflict unimaginable suffering, promote injustice and has acted with selfish evil intent on far more people than it helped.

But where he is wrong is that the US isn't responsible for solving all the problems for the world. Because there are tyrants in the Middle East, what is the US supposed to do? What exactly were the better options? None were good and all have bad consequences.

I believe his argument is that those "tyrants in the Middle East" exist precisely because the US and the West put thrm in power, arm them, provide international legitimacy for them and provide political cover for their regimes.

Personally, I see nothing unsupported by reality in his position.

"And what they found, and if someone went a little bit further with minimal effort, they would discover that this question — you know: “Why do they hate us when we’re so good?” — George Bush’s poignant question — it’s a very old question, for it was asked by President Eisenhower in 1958 — actually, in secret at that time."

Not even the ones we created, which are many and legion.
