Fighting national oppression: Road to anti-war unity

Fred Goldstein | To be sure, a few slogans were added on. A New Orleans speaker was included in the program. But what was needed was to embrace the struggle of New Orleans for dear life. The Black leaders fighting for the cause of New Orleans should have been offered the opportunity to convene and discuss with the organizers, reshaping the program without sacrificing the struggle against the war. more...  0 Comments

Are you class conscious?

James Cooke |
Economic class is one of the few subjects in American society that is forever taboo; the idea is in fact so forbidden that one never learns the basis for its censorship. Why is class such a dangerous idea? And why do most Americans have only a limited understanding of what is an established phenomena in every nation in the world? In spite of the intentional suppression of the class discussion, the issue found itself thrust upon the world public with the destructive outcome of hurricane Katrina. For the first time, many people witnessed a condition of poverty and suffering unbeknownst to them; the shock these visions created prompted people to ask questions about their reality that had never been raised, resulting in conclusions that heightened their awareness about issues that existed beforehand behind a veil of hidden forces. These new ideas consisted in recognizing relationships between race and poverty, class and survival, the protection of property over the life of the deprived— the grossest aspects of how we live, normally hidden from public view.

Former DCI Stansfield Turner: Burn This Book

David Roknich | Tomorrow evening, Admiral Stansfield Turner, former CIA chief under Jimmy Carter will be appearing at
Olsson's Bookstore in Arlington, VA to discuss his new book on the history of the intelligence
community, and how it can be fixed. His views on reform are much more similar to those of

Richard Nixon, than those of our current president. Nixon, a traditional republican, took a

dim view of the CIA:
"What the hell do those clowns do out there in Langley," he is quoted as complaining at one

point. "What use are they? They've got forty thousand people over there reading newspapers."
Perhaps they like to admire their

own work. more...  0 Comments

The Information Expertise of Ahmed Chalabi

David Roknich | In the conjuring of information that preceded the Iraq War,one the early players was Ahmed Chalabi.
He brought with him to Washington a burning desire to rid Iraq of Saddam Hussein, and
intellectual properties beyond measure.
His credentials include a Phd in Mathematics from the University of Chicago (1969), years of
banking experience,and cryptographic abilities allegedly adequate to crack the most sophisticated codes used by the US State Department. His specific mathematical interest was in knot theory, an area of mathematics that has powerful applications in the real world today.
