Not Explaining the Why of Terrorism

By Ray McGovern

John Brennan, President Obama s chief adviser on counterterrorism, has again put on public display two unfortunate facts: (1) that the White House has no clue as to how to counter terrorism; and (2) (in Brennan s words) ''the unfortunate fact that to save many innocent lives we are sometimes obliged to take lives.''

Honoring a 'Terror War' Architect

By Ray McGovern

Waking up to the drones

Antiwar.com
by Kelley B. Vlahos

05/01/12

Look at these photographs. See the eager faces among the children at the school, they could be anyone s kids at any moment in America. And the baby, so precious and new, reflecting the light of his proud parents, the hope of everyone around him. Now imagine that the school is attacked by Predator drones launching Hellfire missiles directly into the classrooms. ... According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, there have been upwards of 350 U.S. military and CIA drone strikes on Yemen and Pakistan since 2004, with the majority in Yemen (20 to 36) occurring in the last two months.

The Nation
by Robert Dreyfuss

Let s unravel this a bit: Why did the White House yesterday tell John Brennan, the president s counterterrorism adviser, to speak publicly about drone strikes? ... There s a lot of reason to question the accuracy of nearly everything [stated] ... But let s leave those questions aside.

The limbo of death row

CounterPunch
by Ron Jacobs

06/02/12

The death penalty is a fact of life in the United States. Despite the actions of many well-intentioned people, these premeditated murders continue to take place at a shameful pace. The fact that the death penalty does exist has brought many young people to question the morality of a system that supports and even champions execution. Unlike the other form of murder carried out by the state, war, the death penalty is harder to rationalize for many people.

Anatomy of an American Execution

Josh Rushing, Al Jazeera: ''In 2010, while making an episode of Fault Lines on the death penalty in the US, Josh Rushing interviewed death row inmate Michael Selsor. It was the only interview Selsor ever granted. Two years later, Rushing returned to watch Selsor die. In this special report, he takes an unflinching look at an American execution.''
