  • Al-Qaeda: ‘America Is On Our Side’

    In an interview with a prominent German newspaper, the commander of al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front in Aleppo, Syria claims that the US government and its allies are providing it with weapons and training. It may seem preposterous, but the US did the same thing with the mujahideen in Afghanistan after the 1979 Soviet invasion. And we … Continue reading "Al-Qaeda: ‘America Is On Our Side’"

  • CIA Whistleblower Kiriakou Honored for Integrity

    Former CIA official John Kiriakou, who spent two years in prison for revealing the truth about White House-sanctioned torture, became the 15th recipient of the Sam Adams Award for Integrity at a ceremony at America University.

  • The MYOB Foreign Policy

    My parents taught me a lot of common sense sayings. You’ve probably heard this one: mind your own business, or MYOB. Most people have enough problems of their own; it’s not a good idea to compound one’s problems by messing around with other people’s lives. What’s common sense for individuals is also common sense for … Continue reading "The MYOB Foreign Policy"

  • War as a Business Opportunity

    A good friend passed along an article at Forbes from a month ago with the pregnant title, “U.S. Army Fears Major War Likely Within Five Years — But Lacks The Money To Prepare.” Basically, the article argues that war is possible — even likely — within five years with Russia or North Korea or Iran, … Continue reading "War as a Business Opportunity"

A Nation on the Brink of Ruin… And How to Bring … Continue reading "Ron Paul interviews David Stockman on What Tru...

  • American Outrage – The Truest Form of American Exceptionalism

    So the Americans have accidentally bombed another target of interest. This time it was in Syria and after the aforementioned error ISIS happened to mount a strategic attack taking advantage of an otherwise wholly unforeseen situation which came in the middle of a supposed ceasefire. Naturally the Syrians are outraged. (Incidentally, for some of us … Continue reading "American Outrage – The Truest ...

  • Mission Accomplished? Ron Paul on More US Troops To Iraq

    After untold billions of dollars in US training and equipment, the Iraqi army is not capable of taking the city of Mosul back from ISIS control. Part of the problem is that the multi-sectarian Iraqi army is not so keen on fighting an ISIS that includes Sunni elements of the old Iraqi army among other … Continue reading "Mission Accomplished? Ron Paul on More US Troops To Iraq"

  • We’re Winning the War Against ISIS! Maybe? On Social Media?

    Now if we can just stop them from blowing stuff up all the time, this thing is in the bag.

The elderly and feeble … Continue reading "We’re Winning the War Against ISIS! Maybe? On Social Media?"

  • Syria Ceasefire In Tatters – Why and What’s Next?

    The apparent attack on a humanitarian convoy in the rebel-held part of Aleppo seems to be the final nail in the coffin of the latest ceasefire in Syria. The US blames the Russians for what it calls an “airstrike” on the aid convoy, but the Russians deny that they or the Syrians bombed the convoy. … Continue reading "Syria Ceasefire In Tatters – Why and What’s Next?"

  • Peter Van Buren on What Lesson To Take From Snowden Movie?

    The NSA is collecting every aspect of our lives and storing them in a massive database. Most Americans are not paying attention to the encroaching total surveillance state. Thanks to Oliver Stone’s new film, “Snowden,” however, there is some hope for grassroots opposition to encroaching tyranny. Former State Department official and whistleblower Peter Van Buren … Continue reading "Peter Van Buren ...

  • Breaking: US Military Strikes Syrian Forces, Allowing ISIS To Advance

    The Associated Press is reporting that the US military has struck Syrian government positions in the eastern province of Deir el-Zour today, as the Syrian military was involved in a battle with ISIS forces. According to the report, the US attack on Syrian troops “enabled an [ISIS] advance on the hill overlooking the air base.” … Continue reading "Breaking: US Military Strikes Syrian Forces, Allowi...

  • US Military Strategy: DDT, Bug Zappers, Lawyers, Guns, and Money

    Today, the essence of U.S. military “strategy” is targeting. The enemy is treated as vermin to be exterminated with the right bug bomb. As if those bombs had no negative consequences; as if we learned nothing from the overuse of DDT, for example. You might recall DDT, the miracle insecticide of the 1950s and 1960s. … Continue reading "US Military Strategy: DDT, Bug Zappers, Lawyers, Guns, and Mone...

  • Philip Giraldi on Israel Getting the Biggest US Aid Package In History

Our security is … Continue reading "Philip Giraldi on Israel Getting the Biggest US Aid...

  • Ron Paul asks: Can New Syria Ceasefire Hold?

    The “new” ceasefire in Syria seems a lot like the one from earlier this year. This time, according to John Kerry, the Syrian government has to ask permission from the US before it bombs rebels in the country. In exchange the US has agreed (or not, depending on which official you listen to) to finally … Continue reading "Ron Paul asks: Can New Syria Ceasefire Hold?"

  • Oliver Stone’s New Movie Snowden Tackles the Myth

    Snowden is a helluva movie, kicking an audience’s ass on a number of levels. I had a chance to see the film last night at a preview event; it opens everywhere on September 16. Go see it. On one level the film presents Snowden’s story as a political thriller. A brave but frightened man, certain … Continue reading "Oliver Stone’s New Movie Snowden Tackles the Myth"

  • Forever War: A Peculiar Form of American Zen

    As a teenager, I read Joe Haldeman’s book, The Forever War. The title intrigued, as did the interstellar setting. Haldeman’s soldiers are caught up in a conflict whose rules keep changing, in part due to time dilation as predicted by Einstein’s theory of relativity. But there’s one thing the soldiers know for certain: no matter … Continue reading "Forever War: A Peculiar Form of American Zen"

  • Why This FBI Whistleblower Seconds Jill Stein’s Call For A New 9/11 Investigation

    After the events of September 11, 2001, as a longtime FBI agent and division legal counsel, I blew the whistle on the FBI’s failure to act on information provided by the Minneapolis field office that could have prevented the attacks. On this sad 15th anniversary of 9/11, I am encouraged to see that Green Party … Continue reading "Why This FBI Whistleblower Seconds Jill Stein’s Call For A New 9/11 ...

  • Peter Van Buren Says Happy 9/11 Day!

    Happy 9/11 Day, our fifteenth anniversary together. If it was a child, she’d be almost ready to drive. They do grow up so fast, don’t they? We’re instituted full background checks, body scanners and cavity searches at my home for all guests and pets (can’t be too careful!), which keeps me pretty busy, so this … Continue reading "Peter Van Buren Says Happy 9/11 Day!"

  • William Astore asks: What Did 9/11 Inaugurate?

    On this 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in 2001, we should ask ourselves what those attacks inaugurated. In a word, calamity. The wildly successful actions of Al Qaeda, combined with the wild overreactions of the Bush/Cheney administration, marked the 21st century as one that will likely become known to future historians as calamitous. In … Continue reading "William Astore asks: What Did 9/11...

  • Ten Years Later, Let’s Move Together Forward to Restraint

    Ten years ago, Iraqi and Coalition Forces were boots-deep in Operation Together Forward, a two-phase mission to reduce violence and increase security in a war-torn Iraq. Soon after, the Iraq Study Group concluded that the operation’s results were "disheartening," to tread lightly. In July, the Chilcot Report yielded another sobering analysis of meddling in the … Continue reading "Ten Years Later, ...

  • Your Tax Dollars, Creating Jobs (in Afghanistan)

    The United States government spent over $42,000 per Afghan to create 500 jobs over there. And that’s the good news. The ever-cheerful Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction (SIGAR; we have been paying to rebuild Afghanistan for the past 15 years with no end in sight) just released their inspection report on the State Department/USAID-funded … Continue reading "Your Tax Dollars, Creati...

  • Jon Basil Utley: Phyllis Schlafly Opposed the Wars

    Phyllis Schlafly was a giant of the conservative movement. And she opposed America’s recent wars. An early fighter, who started up with opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment to the constitution, died at 92 years old. I knew her for 30 years and she had known my mother, Freda Utley, before that. Much is written … Continue reading "Jon Basil Utley: Phyllis Schlafly Opposed the Wars"
