Spooks Plead the Fifth as Grunts are Scapegoated

In Iraq prison torture scandal:

Relatives of three of the six soldiers who were charged, and a lawyer for one of them, said in telephone interviews that the soldiers were being made scapegoats for following orders from officers who actively supported, and even commended, the way they treated the prisoners.

The soldiers “were provided no […]

Saddam’s general to replace US Marines in Fallujah deal

As I happened to predict in the very earliest days of this blog, the Rumsfeld attack against Fallujah (in revenge for an ambush of mercenaries) has produced nothing except roughly 1,000 dead, mostly noncombatant civilians. Rummy’s “offensive” is over. Read it and weep.

Sacrifice? Casualties? No – it’s Happy news®

“See all that dark stuff? That’s dead brain,” he said. “That ain’t gonna regenerate. And that’s not uncommon. That’s really not uncommon. We do craniotomies on average, lately, of one a day.”

‘Iron Curtain Speech’ school jabs Cheney, invites Kerry

This is the school where Winston Churchill made his ‘Iron Curtain’ speech; more relevant perhaps though is that this is where, in August 1990, Thatcher convinced Bush I to declare “this will not stand” and respond to Hussein’s Kuwait-grabbing with a war.

Kerry and the ‘phony controversy’ on military medals

From a blog:

How Kerry has handled the military smear attempt so far:

* Don’t release records, let rightwingers stir up the issue. * Release records, nothing but good. Make wingers look stupid. * Let Bushies drop issue, which they fail to do. * After more manufactured controversy, call them on it and question Bush’s […]
