The United States of Terrorism
Last Thursday, one day before leaving the sin city, in our temporary suitcase-filled rental apartment, I gave an interview to Lew Rockwell on Classified Woman and much more. I say much more because despite all the chaos I was unusually relaxed and open during this interview.
US Acquits CIA of Killing and Torturing of Prisoners
US Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Thursday that no charges will be filed in the cases of two terror suspects who died in CIA custody – one in Iraq in 2003 and another in Afghanistan in 2002.

Anonymous Leaks Secret New York Times Correspondences That Reveal Reporters’ Shocking Competence

Unlike most actions by the crippled hacktivist collective these days, their attack on the Times doesn't just consist of writing boring, unreadable manifestos (though there is a lot of that).

The federal minimum wage is just $7.25 an hour and hasn't been raised in three years. But a raise is much more overdue than that. If we look at the minimum wage 44 years ago, and simply adjust it for inflation, it would be more than $10 today.
It's Inequality, Stupid
he most troubling economic trend facing America this Labor Day weekend is the increasing concentration of income, wealth, and political power at the very top - among a handful of extraordinarily wealthy people - and the steady decline of the great American middle class.
Romney Repeats Big Lie on Israel During Convention Speech
Mitt Romney’s big speech last night, as AlterNet’s Joshua Holland notes, “lacked focus,” and policy wise, “was pretty thin soup.” But let’s hone in on his extremely short foreign policy section.
