Obama After Whistleblowers Worldwide

State Dept. Proposes Firing Whistleblower Peter Van Buren for Exercising 1st Amendment Rights


The Law Is Dead


Obama targets journalists

by Jesselyn Raddack


While the Bush administration treated whistleblowers unmercifully, the Obama administration has been far worse. It is actually prosecuting them, and doing so under the Espionage Act, one of the most serious charges that can be leveled against an American. The Espionage Act is an archaic World War I-era law meant to go after spies, not whistleblowers. Strangely, using it to target the media and sources is the brainchild of neo-conservative Gabriel Schoenfeld, who would have sources who disclose information to reporters, journalists who then write about it for newspapers, the newspapers that publish the information and the publisher itself all be held criminally liable...

Massacre fatigue in Afghanistan

by Alexander Cockburn


Americans have been expressing bafflement that there has not been more outrage in Afghanistan about the latest lethal rampage. Afghans could be forgiven for suffering 'massacre fatigue,' precisely because 'authorized military activity' by US troops and special forces in Afghanistan has long since degenerated into a lethal culture of assassination, 'revenge' sorties, desecration of bodies, harvesting of trophies such as severed fingers, ears and the like. In the recent past Afghans have also been able to study photographs of laughing American soldiers pissing on the bodies of dead Afghans...

The Brotherhood Of The Free

by Pastor Chuck Baldwin

It doesn?t matter that Mitt Romney is a Mormon, or that Newt Gingrich is a Catholic, or that Rick Santorum is a Catholic. What matters is that not one of them is part of The Brotherhood of the Free. Not one of them has a clue as to what the real principles of liberty and constitutional government are all about. Not one of them recognizes the New World Order, the emerging police state, or the foolhardiness of perpetual war, whatever church they attend notwithstanding!

John Pilger, Truthout: ''You are all potential terrorists. It matters not that you live in Britain, the United States, Australia or the Middle East. Citizenship is effectively abolished.

Nine Strategies to End Corporate Rule

Robert Weissman, YES! Magazine: ''The last few years have seen a series of corporate catastrophes, for which the perpetrator companies have escaped any meaningful accountability. Big banks and giant Wall Street firms tricked and ripped off homeowners and investors, and crashed the national and global economy. BP s reckless operations poisoned the Gulf of Mexico in one of the worst oil disasters in history. Massey Energy s cost-cutting led to the Upper Big Branch coal mine collapse that killed 29 workers.''

Bill Ayers on the Coming Revolution

Karen Rybold Chin, Truthout: ''I d interviewed Bill Ayers many times over several years, mostly about public education policy and school and classroom reform.

We met in the album archive room of WORT Community Radio, and I asked Bill to reflect a bit about 'revolution'.''
