Bush Secret Memos And Guantanamo List Revealed |The Real News Network Featured (PLUS) More News And Revelations.



 "The action I am taking is no more than a radical measure to hasten the explosion of truth and justice. I have but one passion: to enlighten those who have been kept in the dark, in the name of humanity which has suffered so much and is entitled to happiness. My fiery protest is simply the cry of my very soul. Let them dare, then,
to bring me before a court of law and let the enquiry take place in
broad daylight!"

- Emile Zola, J'accuse! (1898) –

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude
than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask
not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed
you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and 
may posterity forget
that ye were our countrymen!”

-Sam Adams-

Dave Lindorff: Obama and Holder Must Prosecute War Crimes or Be ...

Setting aside the many other crimes of the Bush Administration for a moment -- the ... the day will come when not only will George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, ..


Gareth Porter says Obama's speech at Camp Lejeaune, which was supposed to explain the Presidents' plan to end the war in Iraq is "not doing what it said it's doing." Porter says the speech creates the, "rationale for a longer term U.S. engagement in Iraq." Responding to Obama pledging a residual force of 35,000-50,000 non-combat troops, Porter says that, "they are combat troops to a great extent... What we're really talking about is what has been referred to as a "rapid reaction force," says Porter, explaining it will consist of, "one, maybe two or more combat brigade teams."

Part two of this interview will be published on Wednesday, March 4th.


Campaign to close down School of The Americas


Campaign to close the School of the Americas Pt.2

I'm sure you've heard about President Obama's plan to finally bring an end to the disastrous war in Iraq. It will bring most of our troops home by August of next year—and by the end of 2011 there won't be any more troops left in Iraq. This is a major turning point in the fight to end the war. 


We wanted to take a moment to reflect on the work that you've done over the last six, dark years—-trying first to prevent the war before it happened and then working tirelessly to end it—-to thank you, sincerely, for all you have done.


This moment is possible because of you, and millions of people like you across our movement. So we put together a slide show of all the work that so many people did to help bring this war to a close—it's worth watching and remembering.

Click here to watch the slideshow


Six years ago, when it was scary to put yourself and your opposition to this war out there in front of your neighbors and co-workers, you did it. And you persisted—outside your Congress members' offices in the freezing cold, holding candles in the pouring rain and delivering millions of petition signatures in the heat of summer. And when the whole country wanted the war to end, but our politicians were too timid to act, you kept pushing.


Of course, our troops aren't home yet. Hundreds of thousands of them are still in harm's way and will continue to be for longer than any of us would like. But now there's a date certain for them to come home.


Until they do, we all need to keep watching Washington and making sure our lawmakers know we're going to hold them to it. Speaker Pelosi and others in Congress have expressed serious concerns about how many troops will be left behind after August of next year—and they're right to raise these questions. We all need to keep looking for ways to ensure all of our troops come home as soon as possible, and to keep pushing for a foreign policy based on diplomacy and engagement. 


And when our troops do come home, they will need our support and help to get back on their feet.

Bush Considered Throwing Out First Amendment

Bush Was a Dictator for 7 Years |
