Military Detention Versus We the People

Shahid Buttar, Truthout: 'Congress has a deserved reputation for cluelessness. Our leaders have a habit of ignoring real crises like housing, education, mass incarceration, and climate change, while contriving distractions like the budget debate that essentially froze Washington, DC for the past year.... On Monday, the Senate will grapple with Congress? latest bipartisan foolishness, the National Defense Authorization Act. Ironically opposed by both the White House and the Pentagon, it would expand preventive and arbitrary detention beyond Guantánamo Bay and the CIA s shuttered black sites, importing it into the domestic United States.'

When the World Outlawed War: An Interview With David Swanson

Bruce E. Levine, AlterNet: 'David Swanson s recently released book, When the World Outlawed War, tells the story of how the highly energized peace movement in the 1920s, supported by an overwhelming majority of U.S. citizens from every level of society, was able to push politicians into something quite remarkable - the Kellogg-Briand Pact and the renunciation of war as an instrument of national policy. The 1920s 'War Outlawry' movement in the United States was so popular that most politicians could not afford to oppose it.'

Senators Have Ideas for Cutting the Military Budget

Robert Naiman, Truthout: 'You might not know it from national press reports, but there are plenty of members of Congress of both political parties who think that cutting the military budget is a perfectly reasonable thing to do and have concrete ideas for doing so.'
