How Maliki and Iran Outsmarted the US on Troop Withdrawal

Gareth Porter, Inter Press Service: 'Defense Secretary Leon Panetta s suggestion that the end of the U.S. troop presence in Iraq is part of a success story ignores the fact that ... the U.S. military had planned to maintain a semi-permanent military presence in Iraq. The real story behind the U.S. withdrawal is how a clever strategy of deception and diplomacy adopted by Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in cooperation with Iran ... got the United States to sign the U.S.-Iraq withdrawal agreement.'

The Trial of Bradley Manning: Rule of Law or Rule of Intimidation, Retaliation and Retribution

Ann Wright, War Is A Crime: 'Bradley Manning has been imprisoned for 19 months, since May, 2010, without a trial ... Manning was charged with transferring classified information onto his personal computer and communicating national defense information to an unauthorized source and 'aiding the enemy,' a capital offense ... Manning's lawyer challenged the impartiality of the investigating officer ... citing [his] civilian employment as a lawyer in the Department of Justice which has conducted investigations on Manning, Julian Assange, and Wikileaks.'


When the bubble bursts
by Justin Raimondo


Secrecy is the prerequisite for tyranny, and knowledge is the tyrant s worst foe: that s why whistleblowers - from Dan Ellsberg to Bradley Manning - are relentlessly pursued and prosecuted. That s why anyone who tries to give context to their revelations - such as this web site - is attacked and spied on by the government and its shills. That s also why the sickening smear campaign launched against both Manning and Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has taken on the dual aspects of both a witch hunt and a crusade...

Immigrants Occupy! Broadening a Movement Culture


The Champions of the Ninety-Nine Percent

I have always believed lasting progressive transformation will come from people s movements, the kind now taking root in towns and cities across the nation.

A Man in Tunisia, a Movement on Wall Street, and the Soldier Who Ignited the Fuse

Michael Moore, 'One year ago on December 17th, Mohamed Bouazizi, a man who had a simple produce stand in Tunisia, set himself on fire to protest his government s repression.... Three months ago on December 17th, Occupy Wall Street began with a takeover of New York s Zuccotti Park.... Twenty-four years ago on December 17th, U.S. Army Spc. Bradley Manning was born.... People across the world devoured the information Bradley Manning revealed, and it was used by movements in Egypt, Spain, and eventually Occupy Wall Street to bolster what we already thought was true.'

Occupation 2.0: Occupy Wall Street Challenges Neighboring Church, and Capitalism

J.A. Myerson: 'There are adherents to the theories of Bakunin and Marx and Fourier and Luxembourg at Occupy Wall Street, but these modern political ideologies are not required for anti-capitalism. After all, it was an ancient Nazarene carpenter who enjoined the masses that 'It is easier to fit a camel through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.'

Gulf Reopens for Drilling as Obama Administration Accused of Low-Balling Effects of Spill

Yana Kunichoff, Truthout: ''As the Obama administration announces the launch of its Blueprint for a Secure Energy Future ... a scientific integrity complaint alleges that officials 'manipulated' scientific data about the effects of the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil leak. Nearly two years after the March 2010 spill, the administrations' new policy plans to open 38 million acres offshore of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama to possible development in June 2012. The area will be available to deepwater drilling.''

Brentin Mock, Bridge the Gulf: ''U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier decided that in the civil trial against BP for their oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the oil company s history of accidents and poor safety records won t be admissible as evidence.... Poor folks in New Orleans and across the Gulf who are the victims and the accused of crimes don t have the luxuries of BP to have their histories buried. That is evidence alone that there is inequity in the justice system.''
