Dave Lindorff | The best way to commemorate those who died on 9-11 would be to honor them by standing up to defend the Republic against those who have sullied their memories by subverting the Constitution and Bill of Rights and started a criminal war in their names. more... 0 Comments
A.K. Gupta | There was little doubt at the time that the eagle was soaring. Few opposed the power grab at home, the Taliban were scattered in a few weeks, and nations rushed to enlist in the “war on terror.” It was no longer just cranky Marxists who talked of imperialism; liberals and conservatives alike hailed a reinvigorated Pax Americana. more... 0 Comments

Howie Hawkins | Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for US Senate, has begun airing radio ads calling for a new investigation into the 9/11 attacks. Hawkins said the unlike the previous investigations, this one needed to head with those without a conflict of interest such as family members of the victims. "The fifth anniversary of the murders of several thousand individuals at the World Trade Center, DC and Pennsylvania is an opportune time to reflect on whether our country took the right response after 9/11. This tragedy has been cynically manipulated by the Bush administration - with the active support of both parties in Congress. The so-called "war on terrorism" has isolated the US politically; fueled a huge increase in an already bloated military budget, leading to massive war profiteering, soaring federal budget deficits and cutbacks in many domestic programs; led to the invasion of Iraq, which had nothing to do with 9/11; and, curtailed civil liberties and public dissent at home. Meanwhile, terrorism has increased throughout the world," more... 0 Comments
