Do I have that right?
- In which an 83-year-old nun and two others are convicted of crime of violence under terrorism statute [search terrorism]
- their weapons are white roses, Bibles and crime scene tape [search white rose]
- and the jury is not allowed to hear a former Attorney General testify in their defense about Nuremberg and Antiproliferation Treaty legal obligations [search Ramsey Clark]
And they were only trying to save us all. Read below the fold...

Why is this question even being honored in America?
Apparently it will be posed seductively soon in a theater near you.
Torture is wrong. It is evil.
“Two wrongs don’t make a right.”
The Golden Rule.
The Geneva Conventions.
Basic human decency.
A while back when I read Jacob Weisberg’s book, The Bush Tragedy, I learned that the main ego-armature for George W. Bush during his Yale University years was his participation in the fraternity culture. Read below the fold...

It is tempting to focus on the bizarre and titillating details of what Pepe Escobar calls a “bedroom farce” or Arthur Silber calls a “cheap slut scenario” given as the explanation for CIA Director General Petraeus’ resignation last week.
I am sure I am not the only citizen who feels “played” once again by a craven administration and corporate media. The sirens of cognitive dissonance are blaring, not only with the timing of the resignation, so close after the election and a week before Petraeus was to give testimony in Congress over the details of the Benghazi attack in Libya.

I would hope that readers would read my work about George Bush. There are some revealing videos of Bush. There is, as well, an uncovering of just how evil the neocon religion, ie a secular desire for world domination, has infected the United States government. I think even liberals are concerned about how Robert Gates and the neocons have infected the Obama administration.
Face it, the Afghan war is a dirty little pipeline war. It is a war of greed, and a war of oil dominance. It has turned the US government, often noble in deed, into a dirty rotten pile of scum. Read below the fold...

The occupied government of Afghanistan and the United Nations have both concluded that U.S.-led troops recently dragged eight sleeping children out of their beds, handcuffed some of them, and shot them all dead. While this apparently constitutes an everyday act of kindness, far less intriguing than the vicious singeing of his pubic hairs by Captain Underpants, it is at least a variation on the ordinary American technique of murdering men, women, and children by the dozens with unmanned drones.

I'm not sure it tells anything we don't already know (read, e.g., The Dark Side). But the Levin-run Senate Armed Services Committee report on detainee abuse is now out (pdf exec summary). And it deserves some press attention. Read below the fold...

These guys are despicable human beings. They deserve to be removed from society and imprisoned for life. And they have been. They won’t be hacking off any more arms and legs. They won’t be raping and sodomizing helpless women. And they won’t be recruiting children to fight their battles for them. But they will not be executed. For their crimes they will sit in steel cages for the rest of their lives, contemplating and (hopefully) regretting their savage brutality toward their fellow human beings. Read below the fold...
