  • I’ll bet the reason we “have” to keep these people in Gitmo until they die is that they know al Qaeda wasn’t capable of doing 9/11.

  • Middle America doesn’t even know who Julian Assange is. The US witch hunt against Assange is mainly about making an “example” of him, as is being done with Manning. This meant to strike fear into other people who might consider whistleblowing. In Manning case, they want to frighten anyone else who has a conscience and access to the US military intranet.

    In Assange’s case, they want to prove that no matter what your citizenship, and no matter where you live in the world, you are subject to the power of the US. If Assange cannot be renditioned to the US for torture, I am sure he will be killed “extra-judicially”. But there is more terror potential in publicly renditioning him to the US, so that will be the goal until it becomes infeasible.

    The only thing that could make a difference now would be a clear understanding that, should large numbers of us go hungry, the hungry will eat the 2%. If the 2% believed that would be their fate, they would behave differently now. But so long as they believe they can get away with a dieback [...]

    The meme that Obama is a “compromiser” is WH propaganda aimed at independents. Obama only “compromises” rightward, never leftward. He has only sneers for “the professional left”.

    He is not a “middleman”. He is a Reagan Republican in Democratic disguise.
