Robert Fisk: For 10 years, we've lied to ourselves to avoid asking the one real question - Robert Fisk, Commentators - The Independent

Robert Fisk: For 10 years, we've lied to ourselves to avoid asking the one real question - Robert Fisk, Commentators - The Independent: So what happened? The commissioners, Summers and Swan state, "settled on vague language that circumvented the issue of motive". There's a hint in the official report – but only in a footnote which, of course, few read. In other words, we still haven't told the truth about the crime which – we are supposed to believe – "changed the world for ever". Mind you, after watching Obama on his knees before Netanyahu last May, I'm really not surprised.

OpEdNews - Article: In America The Rule Of Law Is Vacated

OpEdNews - Article: In America The Rule Of Law Is Vacated: With bank fraudsters, torturers, and war criminals running free, the US Department of Justice (sic) has nothing better to do than to harass the famous Tennessee Gibson guitar manufacturer, arrest organic food producers in California and send 12 abusive FBI agents armed with assault rifles to bust down yet another wrong door of yet another innocent family, leaving parents, children, and grandmother traumatized.

Venezuelan Report Discredits US Government, Advises Regime Change | venezuelanalysis.com

Venezuelan Report Discredits US Government, Advises Regime Change | venezuelanalysis.com: It’s hard to imagine a group of red t-shirted Venezuelans catching a plane to New York or Washington and conducting an investigation into the state of the US health care system, its education system, or its police brutality. And the reason it’s hard to imagine, isn’t because the U.S government isn’t in fact a regime, or that it doesn’t have a gamut of long-term disgusting, anti-people policies, but because Venezuela would never meddle in another country’s internal affairs.

Dick Cheney, the Ultimate American Terrorist | Truthout

Dick Cheney, the Ultimate American Terrorist | Truthout: Speaking of damaging the republic, Dick Cheney has a book out. I'm sure you've heard about it by now; he laid the groundwork for its release by claiming the contents would cause heads to explode in Washington, causing a lot of people who should know better by now to say, "Ooooh, this should be good." It isn't, at all, but I must confess that my head did come very close to launching itself off my shoulders...not because of what's in the book, but because I have to deal with the rancid reality of a free and un-convicted Dick Cheney appearing in the public eye once again.

In an abrupt change of subject, Bob asked Darin if the US government would assassinate Julian Assange.

OpEdNews - Article: The Election March of the Trolls- Chris Hedges

OpEdNews - Article: The Election March of the Trolls: They have crawled out of the sewers of public relations firms, polling organizations, the commercial media, the two corporate political parties and elected office to fill the airwaves with inanities and absurdities until the final inanity -- the 2012 presidential election. Journalists, whose role has been reduced to purveyors of court gossip, whether on Fox or MSNBC, descend in swarms to report pseudo-events such as the Ames straw poll, where it costs $30 to cast a ballot. And then, almost immediately, they blithely inform us that the Iowa poll is meaningless now that Rick Perry has entered the race.

What And Why In Libya by Jim Kirwan

What And Why In Libya: For months now the visceral and bloody slaughter of the nation of Libya has been seesawing its way across the news wires of the world. Lies have been flying like bullets-in-the-night about who is doing what to whom and in the chaos the real story behind this event has become nearly impossible to unravel.

OpEdNews - Article: Cautioning Progressives on Ron Paul? How About Comparing Paul to Obama?

OpEdNews - Article: Cautioning Progressives on Ron Paul? How About Comparing Paul to Obama?: Who knows which progressive constituency Obama will sell out next? He's sold out immigrants, Unions... I think he would have sold out women to get his health care bill passed (his chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, played a key role in recruiting pro-life blue dogs,) has done little for Blacks... He supports torture, spying on Americans, killing Americans outside of the US, broke his promise on Guantanamo, kept many Rove appointed DOJ attorneys on the job, has continued the dangerous expansion of executive powers that Cheney started.
