Oh sure, we all remember this. I think that’s why I got wiretapped by the Bushies — I was interviewed in the Philadelphia Inquirer right before the war started, and I called Bush et al “war criminals”. I know that doesn’t sound so unusual now, but most people were cowed into silence and saying things […]

Not unexpected — the Israelis have been even more blatant in land grabs lately, several Palestinians have been seriously injured and one bus driver was found hanged in his bus. (Officials said it was a suicide.) Now we have this horrendous attack on people praying at a synagogue, and of course it will be used […]
I sure hope so. And I hope they don’t kill him first: WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Mark Udall has seven weeks left in office, but the Colorado Democrat isn’t prepared to go quietly — especially when it comes to the twin issues of CIA torture and government snooping. In his first interview since Election Day, […]
If it’s true. I’d love to see Obama drop the hammer on Israel over these illegal settlements: US President Barack Obama has threatened to lift the ban on the veto given to Israel, a decision that many view as a threat to Israel’s existence, Israeli news sites reported today. The Israeli newspaper Maariv reported that […]
They must hate witnesses: JERUSALEM (AP) — Two photographers, including one working for The Associated Press, were struck by rubber-coated bullets fired at close range by an Israeli border policeman. Neither photographer was seriously hurt in Sunday’s incident, which came during protests that followed the funeral of a 14-year-old Palestinian boy killed in a clash […]
Why, I know exactly what we’ll do — we’ll pretend it never happened! Because it muddies the narrative, don’t you know: DONETSK, Ukraine — The Ukrainian Army appears to have fired cluster munitions on several occasions into the heart of Donetsk, unleashing a weapon banned in much of the world into a rebel-held city with […]
No, this does not mean Bush was right. They were old chemical weapons, improperly disposed of during the first Gulf invasion. But it is a harrowing story, not the least of which is the concept that we “support the troops.” Now let’s see if they ever write about the depleted uranium.
Link: If only those damned Palestinians hadn’t resisted when Israelis tried to take their land, we wouldn’t have to keep killing them! Alex Pareene on Richard Cohen, 2013: “I am a deeply ignorant and cloistered old man,” should be the next sentence, “and no one should pay me for my views and opinions, because they […]
Coleen Rowley: Why do Americans hate beheadings but love drone killings? What accounts for our irrational response to these two very different forms of illegal execution, one very profitable and high-tech, usually resulting in many collateral deaths and injuries, and the other very low-tech, but provoking fear and righteous condemnation from the citizens whose country […]
Ah yes, I remember when the Obamabots kept explaining to me how much we needed the constitutional law professor in the White House, so fake wars would never happen again! Funny, how few of them admit they were wrong. Glenn Greenwald: Even more remarkable, it turns out the very existence of an actual “Khorasan Group” […]
