Irish Allies of US Stoptorturenow Show: CIA CAN'T KEEP A SECRET

Firefox | Pity the poor CIA. What use is a secret service that can't keep a secret? Agents of other secret services should be aware the the loose lips and poor tradecraft of the Americans put the foreigners at risk of arrest and worse.

Caught in Lies

Rainer Rupp | With the NIE, President George W Bush was actually exposed as a liar. By fomenting war hysteria, he consciously made use of misinformation - as in the preparation of the Iraq war. When Bush threatened a `third world war,' he tried to blackmail the world. more...  0 Comments

Editor Gushes over Bush, Columnist Panders to Anti-Immigration Crowd

Walter C. Uhler | Liberal critics of the Philadelphia Inquirer have watched in amazement while the newspaper's management outsourced much its international and national news gathering responsibilities and promoted the famously incompetent conservative ideologue, Kevin Ferris, to the post of Editor of the Commentary Page. And when we thought things couldn't get much worse, the paper added Rick Santorum - yes, THAT Rick Santorum - to a bullpen of columnists already overstaffed with right-wing warmongers, who had gotten it so wrong on Iraq.

Despite Protest, Dershowitz Funds Occupation.

Adalah-NY | New York, NY, Dec. 8 - Wealthy Madison Avenue holiday shoppers were greeted Saturday afternoon by boisterous music and dancing, as 60 New Yorkers protested in a growing campaign to boycott Israeli diamond magnate Lev Leviev over his settlement construction in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Adalah-NY Responds to Leviev, Plans Additional Protest

Adalah-NY | “Leviev claims that we are ignorant of his activities. We know that he is destroying West Bank Palestinian communities like Bil’in and Jayyous with the Israeli settlements his companies are building,” said Ethan Heitner of Adalah-NY. “The five settlements where he has built homes threaten to derail the negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians that started in Annapolis last week. They carve the West Bank into disconnected enclaves, seize valuable resources, and isolate Jerusalem, rendering the creation of a viable Palestinian state impossible. Leviev’s philanthropy in other parts of the world is small compensation for his contribution to inflaming arguably the world’s most important political conflict.”

CIA memo details plans for Venezuela destabilization

Willie Mays |

James Petras reports in Counterpunch on a leaked CIA memo detailing plans to destabilize Venezuela before the Dec. 2 constitutional referendum. Analysts predict the referendum will pass.

The memo outlines a coordinated campaign of street protests, negative press coverage (take a look at the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Washington Post over the past few days, especially the editorials and columnists), and fiscal pressure to force Chavez from power.

It's 1974 in Chile all over again, folks. more...  23 Comments

Ex-professor speaks truth to power about Middle East.
