Does Hillary's Silence on Iran Deal Show Neocon Pull on Her Presidential Run? Hillary's silence suggests that "her harder-line supporters" want to re-fight the battle over U.S. foreign policy that they lost when Barack Obama, not Hillary Clinton, won the Democratic nomination in 2008, and see her potential victory in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary as the restoration of their dominion over Democratic Middle East policy, the second coming of Joe Lieberman.

WikiLeaks and the Drone Strike Transparency Bill We need to force the Administration onto the public record to document its claims. If the Administration wants to claim that civilian casualties from drone strikes have been extremely rare, and that those killed were mainly people trying to attack the U.S., make them show us their numbers, and how they arrived at them. Pass the drone strike transparency bill.

President Obama, Commute Bradley Manning's Sentence to Time Served A cynic might say: What's the point of asking President Obama for clemency, when he's in charge of the system that put Manning in prison? President Obama is indeed in charge of the system that put Manning in prison. That's why he's the correct address for the appeal for clemency.

Amend or Repeal the Espionage Act to Protect Journalists and Whistle-blowers Isn't it high time to amend or repeal the Espionage Act of 1917 so that it can't be used to charge whistle-blowers or journalists with "aiding the enemy"?

Cut Social Security & Veterans' Benefits? Cut the Pentagon Instead The key takeaway from all these numbers is that compared to the bloated Pentagon budget, the proposed savings from whacking seniors, veterans, and the disabled are chump change, not worth bothering with. The crucial thing to remember in all this is that none of us needs to come up with a specific plan to replace cuts to Social Security and veterans benefits with Pentagon cuts.

President Correa, Please Protect Julian Assange From My Government If the U.S. government succeeds in prosecuting Assange under the Espionage Act for helping to disclose the WikiLeaks cables, it will make it harder to reform U.S. foreign policy in the future. That's why I'm urging Ecuador's President Rafael Correa to grant Julian Assange's request for political asylum.

Does AIPAC want war? If the experts and Western officials who believe that Iran already has "the knowledge and technology necessary to build a nuclear weapon" are right, then what that says is that Iran has already crossed the "red line" of the Lieberman bill. And therefore, the supporters of the Lieberman bill are saying that they are ready for war today.

The New York Times misleading public on Iran It's deja vu all over again. AIPAC is trying to trick the United States into another catastrophic war with a Middle Eastern country on behalf of the Likud Party's colonial ambitions, and the New York Times is misleading the public with allegations that say that the country is developing "weapons of mass destruction."

Dancing on the Super Committee's Grave, Singing Hallelujah The "revealed preference" of Congress so far is this: there is no majority coalition in Congress which prefers cutting Social Security benefits, raising the Medicare retirement age and increasing taxes on rich people to cutting the projected Pentagon budget by 15% over 10 years.

To live within our means, let's leave Iraq Representative Barbara Lee has introduced legislation that would prevent the Pentagon from keeping thousands of US troops in Iraq by cutting off funds for the war after December 31, 2011. In other words, the bill would cut off funds for violating the agreement with Iraq to pull out troops by December. It would cut off funds for violating Obama's campaign promise to end the war.

He Gets It, But He Still Doesn't Get It: Reading Ethan Bronner in Athens Bronner's "news analysis" of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla begins with great promise. But ultimately he can't seem to keep his mind wrapped around the fact that the flotilla is about freedom, not aid.

"Orderly Transition," or "Nothing Burger" Reforms? Benchmarks for US Policy in Egypt So far the "reforms" and "concessions" that have been reported have been a "nothing burger" as far as the transition to democracy is concerned. If the US is serious about democracy, there must be benchmarks for US policy, including ending the detention and harassment of journalists and human rights activists, lifting the state of emergency, free electoral competition, and restoration of judicial supervision of elections.

"Hand in Hand, the Army and the People Are One" Eyes are on the Egyptian military now. What will they do? A week ago, it was said: Egypt is not Tunisia, and the Egyptian military is not the Tunisian military. A week ago, that was surely true. Today, it is not quite so obvious. What will be true tomorrow?
