Captain May | An important story was buried by the mainstream media last week: the 6/26 Senate Democrats hearing on Pre-Iraq War Intelligence. I offer this analysis of the media non-coverage of that damning (ergo, ignored) event. I hope you find it both enjoyable and informative -- and lament that no one else has done this bit of writing yet! Your servant, CPTMAY more... 0 Comments

Weekly News Update on the Americas | When US voters consider electoral fraud, George Bush's theft of Florida in 2000 is the paragon of stolen elections. But here the reference point is the presidential election of 1988, when on election night government officials lied that the "system has fallen," presumably alluding to the crash of vote-tabulating computers. more... 0 Comments

Al Giordano | In a few days we will begin to see who is bullshiting and stonewalling, and what is the real story. The preliminary PREP results are not the official results. The official results can only come in an "acta" or act signed by the elections officials in each polling place, who are chosen by lottery from the citizenry, much like, say, a jury pool. It is a crime to tamper with an "acta." No legal punishment exists for sending in a false PREP report. more... 6 Comments
Aminata Traore | The following was written in response to the much-heralded museum of "non-European art" built by the French Government and recently opened on the Quai Branly in Paris.

Rafael Azul | On Sunday, July 2, Mexican voters will elect a new president and a new Congress. The election takes place under conditions of mounting class tensions, as hundreds of thousands of teachers, miners and other workers have taken to the streets. None of the major candidates in the presidential election genuinely addresses the needs of the masses for decent-paying jobs, improved living standards and social programs.
By Bill Van Auken | Bernard Kerik, New York City’s former police commissioner and George W. Bush’s first choice to succeed Tom Ridge as secretary of the Homeland Security Department, appeared in a Bronx courtroom Friday to plead guilty to minor corruption charges. His guilty plea was part of a deal with prosecutors to avoid felony indictments and possible jail time.

Weekly News Update on the Americas | Despite outgoing president Vicente Fox Quesada's avowal that Mexico is "at peace," it doesn't really look that way.

Dave Lindorff | The media has missed this point, and the Justices kind of glided over the significance of what they were saying. So now the question is: What are we the people going to do about it?
Walter C. Uhler | Appropriately, much has been made of the recent survey conducted by Foreign Policy and the Center for American Progress, which found that 84 percent (of the more than 100) of America's top foreign policy experts believed that the United States is not winning the war on terror. Not only do they dispute President Bush's insular and politically self-serving assertion that America is winning that war, they also "see a national security apparatus in disrepair and a government that is failing to protect the public from the next attack." [See "The Terrorism Index," July/August 2006]
