Bush’s Torturers Follow Where The Nazis Led

By Andrew Sullivan

I remember that my first response to the reports of abuse
and torture at Guantanamo Bay was to accuse the accusers
of exaggeration or deliberate deception. I didn’t believe
America would ever do those things. I’d also supported
George W Bush in 2000, believed it necessary to give the
president the benefit of the doubt in wartime, and knew
Donald Rumsfeld as a friend. Continue

Inside France's Secret War

By Johann Hari in Birao, Central African Republic

For 40 years, the French government has been fighting
a secret war in Africa, hidden not only from its people,
but from the world. It has led the French to slaughter
democrats, install dictator after dictator – and to fund
and fuel the most vicious genocide since the Nazis. Today,
this war is so violent that thousands are fleeing across
the border from the Central African Republic into Darfur –
seeking sanctuary in the world's most notorious killing
fields. Continue

UK 2017: Under Surveillance

By Neil Mackay

IT is a chilling, dystopian account of what Britain will look
like 10 years from now: a world in which Fortress Britain
uses fleets of tiny spy-planes to watch its citizens, of
Minority Report-style pre-emptive justice, of an underclass
trapped in sink-estate ghettos under constant state surveillance,
of worker drones forced to take on the lifestyle and values
of the mega-corporation they work for, and of the super-rich
hiding out in gated communities constantly monitored by
cameras and private security guards. Continue

So Who’s Afraid of the Israel Lobby?

By Ray McGovern

Virtually everyone: Republican, Democrat—Conservative,
Liberal. The fear factor is non-partisan, you might say,
and palpable. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) brags that it is the most influential foreign
policy lobbying organization on Capitol Hill, and has
demonstrated that time and again—and not only on
Capitol Hill. Continue

Murdering Butter with Guns

By David Michael Green

When even a sycophant like Colin Powell can say that
your Army is “broken”, surely it is and worse. When
your own intelligence agencies affirm that your actions
in Mesopotamia are actually creating terrorists with
a vengeance (and with a vengeance), you screwed up
bad, pal. When nobody believes you anymore including
your own public, and you have to pay exorbitant sums
to get people otherwise headed to jail to join your
‘volunteer’ military, it’s no longer clear which is
scarier - your army or theirs. Continue

Chevron's Pipeline

The Burmese Regime's Lifeline

By Amy Goodman

The barbarous military regime depends on revenue
from the nation’s gas reserves and partners such as
Chevron, a detail ignored by the Bush administration.

Imagine Peace

By Cindy Sheehan

First of all, imagine a world with no religion. A world
where sick and evil people could not manipulate
the masses into believing that the set of myths and
beliefs that they profess are more important or
powerful than the other's set of myths or beliefs.

Who's the Voice of this Generation?

By Lev Grossman

Hemingway's rose like the sun. Kerouac found his on
the road. So why can't today's young novelists express
the essence of their era?
