From War in Context:

When lives are at stake and governments choose to guard our ignorance

Posted: 01 Dec 2010 11:15 AM PST

Gary Anderson, a retired US Marine colonel, says that Julian Assange is an enemy combatant and is “as much an enemy to the United States as any Al Qaeda operative.” Not long ago an Esquire headline writer posed the question: “Should we execute Julian Assange?” “We” being the national American vigilante? “Lives are at risk” is one […]

Is Yossi Melman linking WikiLeaks to Mossad?

Posted: 01 Dec 2010 11:00 AM PST

In The Independent yesterday, Yossi Melman made an intriguing statement. Melman is the intelligence and military affairs correspondent for Haaretz and generally regarded as well informed on the operations of Mossad.

“Terrorism” is now a fabrication of a national security state

Posted: 01 Dec 2010 10:21 AM PST

This is not a conspiracy theory. To say that terrorism is a fabrication of a national security state is to say that when the label “terrorist” starts being indiscriminately applied to anyone who threatens the government we have taken another step towards totalitarianism.

WikiLeaks exposes Obama’s willingness to engage Iran as disingenuous
