David Walsh | Since August 10, when British authorities arrested two dozen individuals in connection with an alleged plot to blow up a number of airplanes over the Atlantic Ocean, the American mass media has worked ceaselessly to create a climate of fear.
Kate Randall | The Bush administration is seeking changes to war crimes law in an effort to protect government officials, CIA officers and former military personnel from prosecution for mistreatment of war prisoners.
Barry Grey | Five days after UK authorities arrested 24 British-born Muslims and announced that they and their American counterparts had thwarted a plot to blow up trans-Atlantic flights from London to the US, neither the British nor the American government has produced any facts to substantiate their dire claims.
Fred Bergen | Only the working class, mobilizing the power that is uniquely its own to stop war production and paralyze the war industries, and based on its material interest in the defeat of imperialism, can stop the war!

Roy Rollin | As "Tom," "burningman" and myself have all found out first hand, Carl Davidson is very skillful in misrepresenting the views of his opponents on the left. For he is an apt graduate of the Stalin schools of falsification and class collaborationism. Indeed, the two go hand in hand, for the former makes the latter all the easier to sell as the only possible path for radical activists today. At the same time he poses as a voice of moderation willing to learn from his own ultra-left mistakes of yesteryear and assist others in avoiding them by burying themselves in the politics of the possible, ie, in the Democratic Party. Thus he endlessly insinuates that those who do not share his infatuation with the Democrats instead advocate armed insurrection or some other such out of this world adventurism, as if those were the only choices available for the left today. By posing the later as what the far left advocates, he hopes to make the former seem reasonable and palatable even though expecting to take over the bosses' party or pressure it into cleaning up its act is as far fetched a pipe dream as is a handful of radicals taking over state power in the US today. more... 2 Comments

Steve Peacock | A recently obtained Naval Operations Security Plan (OPSEC) expressly reveals the U.S. Navy’s contempt for journalists, whom it views in the same light as – and arguably a less favorable light than – foreign spies. The document was discovered while researching a federal contract to support psychological operations (PSYOPS) that the U.S. military conducts worldwide, a $100 million award secured by Virginia-based CACI International. more... 0 Comments
