Admit It: The US Has Been Defeated in Iraq

Dave Lindorff | Congressman Murtha is right to call for a withdrawal from Iraq, as no amount of further combat will change the truth. This war is lost. Now it’s time to assign blame for the disaster and to punish the culprits. more...  1 Comments

War, budget cuts ignite voter rebellion

Tim Wheeler/People's Weekly World | WASHINGTON — President George W. Bush’s smear tactics failed to silence his growing opposition as the peace movement and defenders of the poor stepped up their fight against the Iraq war and a Republican proposal to cut $50 billion from federal programs for low-income Americans. more...  0 Comments

CHART & TABLE -- Explains CIA Flights in the News

Clayton Hallmark | QUESTION: WILL CIA AGENTS BE TREATED AS "FOREIGN COMBATANTS" BY FOREIGN COUNTRIES WHEN THEY OPERATE OUTSIDE THE LAW? There is plenty of evidence in the news of illegal (under international and non-US laws) CIA operations. The European Commission JUST ANNOUNCED (Nov. 15) it will NOT investigate published reports that the CIA set up secret jails in Eastern Europe to detain high-profile terrorism suspects. However, it strongly warned against such jails. Germany, Hungary, Italy, Morocco, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain and Sweden have all been linked to the CIA's use of planes for the transit of prisoners allegedly subjected to extra-judicial detention and torture. News media reported also that the group Human Rights Watch "claims records and other evidence point to POLAND and ROMANIA as countries that allowed their territory to be used by the CIA to jail top suspected al-Qaeda captives." We report that HRW knows that from tracing the movements of CIA planes and WE PROVIDE A LIST OF THE 28 PLANES, 8 SHELL COMPANIES, AND SEVERAL CIA-RELATED COMPANIES. Of course the CIA and the US government deny that secret airlines (illegal under US law), renditions, and torture are part of the CIA's repertoire more...  0 Comments

Recap of November 16th Counter Recuitment in Brooklyn

in our hearts | During the day, we gave out over 500 flyers-- some presenting our position on fighting the government's bullshit wars, while others presented concrete reasons to not join the military (a flyer written by a black anarchist Vietnam war veteran, as well a newspaper directed toward people who have already enlisted with resources on what they can do now that they have signed up.) The response from passersby was very positive-- many people stopped to talk and thanked us for being there, and some recounted stories of people in their lives who are currently in the military" [See More Pictures] more...  8 Comments

US Didn't Use Phosphorus Bombs on Civilians Because It Called All Civilians Insurgents

Dave Lindorff | Caught in a lie when it initially denied using phosphorus bombs in the assault on Fallujah, the Pentagon had to concede it used the weapons. It fell back on the claim that it only used the incendiary defices on militants, not civilians--but then, in that assault, the Pentagon trapped all males in the city, considering them all insurgents. more...  0 Comments

The Language War: DoD Funding and Critical Language Study

Adam Federman | The funding of language study in the United States is largely dependent upon the needs of the foreign policy establishment. Thus, on the rare occasion that Americans are encouraged to study a language other than their own, which is itself rather infrequent, it is for the expressed purpose of, oh, defending the nation, deciphering intelligence, or if one truly makes it to the big leagues, carrying out covert operations as an undercover agent. more...  0 Comments

Germ Warfare: The Second Front of Scooter Libby, Judy Miller and Dick Cheney

By Jeremy Scahill | With all the leaking and smearing they were doing in selling the Iraq war, Scooter Libby and his "former" boss Dick Cheney still found the time to conduct a parallel propaganda war in which they attempted to use the US public as guinea pigs. And once again, Judy Miller served as a crucial PR agent for the cause. more...  0 Comments
