Military Officer Exposes Afghanistan “Success” As A Lie

Military Officer Exposes Afghanistan “Success” As A Lie

“Rosy official statements” from top US military brass are misleading the American people into believing our occupation of Afghanistan is yielding solid results toward building a sustainable democracy. Instead, says Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis – who traveled more than 9,000 miles and “talked, traveled and patrolled with troops in Kandahar, Kunar, Ghazni, Khost, Paktika, […]

Journalist Jason Leopold Talks About His FOIA Lawsuit Against FBI, DOJ, CIA

It can sometimes take years for a FOIA request to be processed and for a response to come. That’s why in 2007, a provision was put in by Congress mandating that each government agency give an estimated date to those who file a request of when they’ll take action. But it looks like not all […]

Investigative Journalist Jason Leopold Sues FBI, CIA, DOJ Claiming FOIA Violations

This report was written by Jason Leopold and originally published on Truthout. Over the past year, I’ve filed dozens of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with the FBI, CIA, Department of Defense, and other government agencies in hopes of prying loose documents I need to support my investigative reporting efforts on a wide-range of […]

Judith Miller Defends “The Hunted Men Who Brought Growth And Reform” To Egypt

Judith Miller, you may recall, is the Pulitzer Prize-winning ex-New York Times journalist who left the paper after it was discovered that she was Bush-era Vice President Dick Cheney’s “stenographer.” A Times investigation found serious errors in many of her stories about weapons of mass destruction in the run-up to the Iraq War.

Egypt: The Army’s Chess Match?

Egypt: The Army’s Chess Match?

Tensions between long-standing allies Egypt and the US climbed to a new high this week as Egypt’s ruling generals arrested 43 employees of the country’s non-profit non-governmental human rights organizations – including several from the US. But many are suggesting that the US organizations are simply being used as pawns in a larger game — […]

Iran’s Bomb: Haven’t We Been Here Before?

Iran’s Bomb: Haven’t We Been Here Before?

I am far from any kind of expert in nuclear weapons development, so I could be 180 degrees wrong. But I have a growing sense that the increasingly ominous reports about Iran’s A-bomb aspirations mimic a story I’ve heard before. It was in 2002 and 2003, when the drumbeats of impending war were being pounded […]

The Pentagon won’t release any details of an investigation initiated by the commander of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility revolving around the discovery of “contraband” at the prison, which included a magazine produced by an offshoot of al-Qaeda based in Yemen. Late last year, Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. […]

Occupy The Justice System: Jury Nullification

Occupy The Justice System: Jury Nullification

The Occupy movement has been instrumental in not only changing our national conversation on issues such as poverty and massive income inequality, but on shedding an unwavering light on the corporate criminal class too. The movement has these moneyed thugs shaking, and one need look no further for evidence of this than in the violent, […]

Rights Group Slams Governments For “Double Standard” on Arab Spring

Predicting that the current Middle East unrest would continue through 2012, Amnesty International is slamming Western governments for their tepid responses to peaceful protests, for their “double standard,” and for being more concerned with preserving their political and economic interests than with the historic changes sweeping the region. The charges are being made in a […]

Obama Immigration Agency Exaggerating Deportations

Analysts at Syracuse University have concluded that the Obama Administration’s figures for the number of people deported from the US are being grossly overestimated. Analysis of government immigration data provided to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University in late December — almost two years after TRAC had requested it — show that […]
