Syria: Jubiliation is Unwarranted Some in the anti-war movement have been celebrating "our" victory in "preventing a war." They are mistaking U.S. maneuvering prior to more escalation with peace moves. The war in Syria continues.

Eugene Robinson on Syria, Obama and American Exceptionalism WaPo's Eugene Robinson claims that Obama has the right to bomb Syria because America's "exceptional" and that Obama's proved his mettle by killing people with drones. What's that again?!

The Trial of George Zimmerman and the Tribulations of Black People They're letting him walk! The verdict: if you're young and black, you can be killed with impunity. While this verdict is not surprising, since this was the way it was looking from the way the trial was proceeding, this is an outrage. This system had to be forced to even charge Zimmerman by people's protests and this obscene decision must not go down without mass protest.

The NSA Spying Scandal and Improbable Cause The NSA and Obama justify their ubiquitous, warrantless surveillance as necessary to fighting their "War on Terror."

Why the US government is Spying on Everyone Not only is Obama spying on all Americans, he's spying on foreigners abroad - in other words, on the world. Why is this going on and why has it increased since Bush?

Obama Needs Congress to Close GTMO, but Not to Use Drones? When the Senate finally held a hearing on drones, Obama refused to send a rep. He says he can't close GTMO because of Congress, yet he's killed thousands with drones without Congressional approval.

Droning Out Any Opposition Rand Paul ends the filibuster of Brennan when Holder says POTUS wouldn't assassinate an American in America unless they're "engaged in combat." What does Holder mean by "engaged in combat"? An examination of gov't policy on this question reveals deeply distressing news.

Holder Flip Flops on Drones But the NYT and NPR Don't Take Notice Eric Holder muddies the waters on drones: Obama still obviously believes he can drone assassinate anyone anywhere, but major media don't deem this worthy of comment.

Zero Dark Thirty: Bigelow's "Civilized Lunch" Zero Dark Thirty's director Bigelow defends against the charge that her film is an apologia for torture and specifically says bin Laden's courier's name was given up during a "civilized lunch." But, in fact, torture produced no useful intel at all.

Two Confounding Items in the News Regarding the Murdering of Children A U.S. military official recently announced that the U.S. military sometimes deliberately targets children for killing. This is, of course, entirely different from a lone, crazed, gunman such as Adam Lanza deliberately executing twenty children in their elementary school.
