Norman Finkelstein: Palestinians Have the Right to Break Free of the "Unlivable" Cage That Is Gaza There's a consensus that the proximate cause of the horror in Gaza, the proximate cause, is the Israeli blockade. It's not Hamas. There might be some Hamas responsibility, but it's so marginal, so minimal, as compared to that blockade. Gaza is the only place on Earth where the place is unlivable and the people can't move. They can't leave. They're trapped.

Medea Benjamin: The Peace Movement Must Mobilize to Support Diplomacy in Iran & North Korea President Trump says, "When I make promises, I keep them." When the U.S. makes promises, he breaks them.

CIA Nominee Gina Haspel May Testify for First Time in Public About Her Role in Torture at Black Site There is no publicly available document that even tells you what were Gina Haspel's duty stations during her 30-year career at the CIA.
