Old Soldier Mark Milley Should "Fade Away" Milley saw fit to warn his Chinese counterpart that he would give him a heads-up if an armed attack on China was coming, there is the equally astonishing revelation that Milley instructed senior Pentagon officials that he had to be involved in any discussions about launching nuclear weapons.

Plenty of Intelligence To Prevent 9/11 Lying by senior officials is bad enough, and there is now plenty of evidence that former CIA Director George Tenet and his closest agency associates are serial offenders. They could have prevented 9/11.

Ray McGovern: What Have Our Generals Been Up To? When top US generals were ordered to withdraw completely from Afghanistan they decided deliberately to make the withdrawal as messy as could be. How better to demonstrate that "civilian authority" does not know what it is doing and might even have to send some of the withdrawn military units, or new ones, back into Afghanistan.

Hold the Generals Accountable This Time If, after the horrors of this week in Afghanistan, the four-Starry-eyed generals responsible for this 20-year March of Folly are not held accountable, there will be still worse to come. None were held accountable for the disasters of Vietnam or Iraq, and now the allegedly smart four-Star Generals and Admirals are -- get this -- preparing for war with China and Russia.

US Abroad: Color It Racist U.S. policy-makers are tinged with white supremacy and the benighted notion of U.S. "indispensability."Afghanistan neighbors would be well advised to expect U.S. resistance rather than cooperation, if/when they undertake a serious effort to seize this liminal opportunity for peace and reconstruction in Afghanistan.

Love Triangle Exposed: Democrats-Mueller-NY Times A former Marine, Mueller followed orders from a corrupt Justice Department and an FBI with lots of shenanigans to hide. Not to mention the incessant "guidance" Mueller and his team got from an equally corrupt mainstream media, drumming Trump-Russia perfidy into the consciousness of all Americans.

A Cyber-Culprit Other Than Russia? Will Biden let himself be shamed into taking "some kind of visible action" against Russia; something much stronger than just another "verbal warning"? What could possibly go wrong?

Is the Biden-Putin Summit Doomed? A shifting correlation of forces will form an influential backdrop to the U.S.- Russia summit planned for June 16 in Geneva. While China will not be taking part in the discussions, it will be very much there.
