Pentagon Research May Be Dangerous to Your Health
The Pentagon not only gets Americans killed in aggressive wars around the world but, in chewing up their tax dollars for war, starves the government of the money needed to push research that would expand the human lifespan.
Obama's "No Apology" Stance For Nukes Mirrors No Prosecution of CIA
President Obama's dodge to excuse CIA torturers from prosecution for their Bush era war crimes when he took office was that he wanted to "look forward." Result: the CIA has killed thousands of additional people during his term. Now, he won't apologize for USA's WWII nuclear attacks when he visits Hiroshima this month on the same grounds. In fact, what he terms looking forward actually is turning a blind eye to war crimes.

Does CIA Project America's Highest Values?
On Thursday the Deputy Director of the CIA told an audience at NYU law school that The Agency's operations reflect America's "highest values." The very next day, April 22, 2016, a Washington State district judge, in a victory for the ACLU, upheld a law suit aimed at bringing to justice CIA torturers alleged to have frozen one man to death and inflicted terrible suffering on others.
USA Today's Love Letter To The Pentagon
The publishers of USA Today and the Pentagon appear to have worked very closely on an 88-page tabloid special edition titled "Vigilant" that makes America aggression appear to be nothing more than self-defense.
Nation Magazine Backing For Sanders Timely
Although The Nation doesn't ordinarily make endorsements in a primary election, it has done so in this presidential campaign, asking readers to vote for Bernie Sanders. Considering the stakes in this election, it's a good thing, too.
Boyle Charges U.S. Germ Warfare Program "Criminal Enterprise"
The international legal authority who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989--adopted by both houses of Congress without a single negative vote--now says the U.S. is in flagrant violation of the law as it is engaged in criminal germ warfare activity.
The Water Crisis is Here
Future historians may well regard America's leaders today as mad when considering the sums they spend on war in a time when rivers and taps are running dry, deserts are growing, and city water supplies are in peril of pollution or outright decay.

Failure To Prosecute Bush For War Crimes Threatens World Peace
If killers are free to kill and can walk away from their crimes, it is likely others will follow their example. Former President George W. Bush is one prominent example.

Making Corporate Offshore Tax Dodging A Campaign Issue
Probably the vast majority of honest tax-payers oppose the current practice by corporations of setting up post office box headquarters in Bermuda and like places to dodge paying taxes. If this practice isn't stopped, Jane and Joe Taxpayers are going to pay what the corporation evades.

Obama's Wars Hurting America's Middle Class
Obama has failed to use his office for the betterment of humanity, instead, turning the nation instead into an ever-improved killing machine. Lost are precious opportunities to cure the world of disease and provide pure water for its abject millions. What's more Obama is taking the American middle class with him down the road to war, poverty and suffering.

America Going, (Going, Gone!) To The Dogs (Of War)
When will Americans connect the fact that the humane activities of America---doing right by its citizens--are being starved so that the military-industrial complex(MIC) can live off the fat of the land? What's worse, the money MIC spends is actually for aggression that is killing millions of innocent people overseas. If Americans are going to take their country back, impeaching Obama is a good place to start.
Obama Versus Hersh: Who's Telling The Truth?
Over and again, the Obama administration threatened its own employees not to talk about the bin Laden slaying. This was done likely to suppress the truth, that his murder was an execution, not a battle, and that he was probably unarmed.

As we remember the martyrdom of Joan of Arc on this day in 1431, we need to consider how President Obama has turned the clock back to the 15th Century and his culpability for the murder of thousands of civilians, including 200 children by drone attacks.
