Why Won't The CIA Release Its Joannides Files? Whatever strained meaning one puts on the term "national security," how in the world would the disclosure of the Joannides files to the public put America into jeopardy? After all, the Kennedy assassination took place 50 years ago, supposedly by a lone nut communist Marine.

At the time he was killed, the 39-year-old Taylor was training an Afghan security force. One of his trainees turned his gun on Taylor and shot him dead.

Two More U.S. Deaths for Nothing in Afghanistan The U.S. government should tell the families of those two dead soldiers the truth: they died for nothing, just as 58,000 American soldiers died for nothing in the Vietnam War. The realization that one's loved ones died for nothing would be painful but at least it would be the truth.

Even if it had been 20 children or 100 children who would be killed in the operation, the deaths, while difficult, would still have been considered worth it.

Don't Northwoods Iran Iran, like Iraq, has never attacked the United States. If Obama gives his military and CIA orders to attack Iran, the US will once again be the aggressor nation, as it was in its war on Iraq. That's one reason aggressors like to maneuver targeted nations into firing the first shot. The aggressor nation can tell its citizens, "We've been attacked! We're innocent! We have been forced to go to war to defend ourselves."

Do We Need the First Amendment? The First Amendment does not give people rights. It prohibits the government from infringing on rights that preexist the government. The only reason for enacting such a prohibition is the concern that in the absence of such a prohibition, Congress would enact laws that abridge freedom of speech and other fundamental rights.

Donald Trump -- Cold War Anachronism Trump's actions are not only a classic throwback to the old Cold War, when the Pentagon and the CIA filled everyone with a deep fear of communism and the Soviet Union, they also demonstrate the rank hypocrisy that has infected U.S. interventionist foreign policy since the advent of the U.S. national-security state after World War II.

Torture, Assassination, and the American Way of Life For decades, Americans lived under the quaint notion that the national-security state would exercise such powers only against foreigners. With the arrest, torture, and assassination of Americans in the post-9/11 era, it's finally starting to dawn on many Americans that they stand in no different position, in principle, from the citizenry in those U.S.-supported dictatorships in Latin America and the Middle East.

Fallacies of Conservative Immigration Arguments Conservatives often use the national-home argument to justify their support of a system of immigration controls. They say that America is a "national home," one owned and controlled by the U.S. government. As the owner of the "home," the argument goes, the U.S. government has the "right" to lock the door and determine who to let into its home.

Jeb Bush's Confused Mindset Over Iraq Poor Jeb Bush. He just can't get his mind straight on Iraq. Perhaps that's because he's reluctant to criticize his brother George W. Perhaps it's because he wants desperately to be president and is willing to take any position on Iraq that will garner him votes.

Appoint a Special Prosecutor in the Shahram Amiri Case The American press has taken at face value the story supplied by unnamed government sources in the case of Iranian scientist Shahram Amiri. Meanwhile, Miri claims he was kidnapped, drugged, and tortured by the CIA. The CIA's past behavior has given us little reason to think this could not be true, or that the CIA would not lie to cover it up.

The military and the CIA also wield the power to assassinate American citizens that is, simply kill them without due process and a trial.
