filmmaker and former BBC producer Jamie Doran, the

surrendered to the US military's Afghan allies after
the siege of Kunduz. According to the film, some three

containers and loaded onto trucks for transport to
Sheberghan prison. When the prisoners began
shouting for air, U.S.-allied Afghan soldiers fired
directly into the truck, killing many of them. Continue

$600 billion annual government budget deficit and
its $800 billion annual trade deficit. The US government

trade surplus dollars to buy US Treasury bonds
and mortgage debt. Continue

Comrades Bush, Paulson and Bernanke Welcome You to the USSRA

(United Socialist State Republic of America)

By Nouriel Roubini

Socialism is indeed alive and well in America; but this is
socialism for the rich, the well connected and Wall Street.
A socialism where profits are privatized and losses are
socialized with the US tax-payer being charged the bill
of $300 billion. Continue

Storm Troopers at the RNC

By Ray McGovern

Ten days ago, as the nation focused attention on the
hurricane nearing the Mississippi delta, another storm
was brewing far upstream in St. Paul, Minnesota — a

The Right Dictates MSNBC's Programming Decisions

By Glenn Greenwald

MSNBC's announcement that it is replacing Keith Olbermann
and Chris Matthews with David Gregory as anchors for its
main political events (the upcoming presidential debates
and election) vividly illustrates several long-obvious facts.

Don't Think of a Maverick!

by: George Lakoff

Could the Obama campaign be improved? Throughout
the nomination campaign, I was struck by how well the
Obama campaign was being run, especially how sophisticated
the framing was. I was heartened that my five books
on the subject might have had a real effect. But recently
I have begun to wonder. It looks like, in certain respects,
the Obama campaign is making some of the same mistakes
of the Hillary campaign and the Kerry and Gore campaigns.
