Obama the ChickenHawk

Obama — our “man of peace” and “Constitutional scholar” [aka our new decider-daddy] — has got his balls set on “winning in Afghanistan.” Then it’s on to Pakistan! And Iran! And North Korea! And Syria! And, what’s up with his Colin Powell Act? rb [from Ted Rall] “I’ve asked my national security team to…collect the [...]

The Only Brave Troop Is An AWOL Troop

It takes guts to do the right thing, especially after having taken great pride in doing the wrong thing…rb from Dahr Jamail: On May 1st at Fort Hood in central Texas, Specialist Victor Agosto wrote on a counseling statement, which is actually a punitive U.S. Army memo: “There is no way I will deploy to [...]

His bicep had attached to his forearm due to the fact his arm was in the sling for so long. I escorted this detainee to medical [...]

Physician, Torture Thyself…

The Neely account shows that health professionals are right in the thick of the torture and abuse of prisoners — suggesting a systematic collapse of professional ethics driven by the Pentagon. He describes body searches undertaken for no legitimate security purpose, simply to sexually invade and humiliate the prisoners. This was a standardized Bush tactic [...]
