T&A Club I'm thinking of starting a torture and assassination (T&A) discussion group. Along with the central issue--the propriety or impropriety of T&A--we'll talk about the tactics themselves: the purposes, processes and proper application of torture and assassination.

Adjoining Plots Suppose that the president of the United States received intelligence that a very dangerous man was hiding in a house in a foreign country. Would it be OK for the president to get in touch with the authorities in that country and ask them to drop a bomb on that house?

All In for Rotten AIG The proposed "bailout," is actually a vast transfer of wealth from the have-nots to the haves. Ask your congressman who's pocketing all this money (somebody is), and you'll discover it's people with too much money--including no small number of Arabs, Asians and Europeans--who risked some of it to make more. They suffered a modest loss, and they're turning it into a panic so they can loot our treasury.

Wright Wronged. Wrong Righted? Jeremiah Wright is the hapless victim of neobigots, paid promoters of a popular racism that proceeds not from the presumed superiority of the white race but from its presumed inferiority.

Bill of Rights Toilet Paper in Army Lawyers' Latrine? It's very likely that some federal judges will have occasion to review the Sixth Amendment rights of criminal defendants when the cases now pending before the so-called military commissions at Guantanamo prison reach them. The accused--six Arabs said to have been involved in the events of September 11, 2001--have been denied each and every right enumerated by the Sixth, and they're on trial for their lives.

Endtimes for Half-Measures: Radical Policy for the Near Term It's possible, maybe even likely that we will see a radical shift in public opinion and political activity over the next few years. Our youth and their kids, who will fall victim to a catastrophe of our making if we don't act, take precedence over all else. Damn the consequences of revolution if it improves their chances!

What Else is on Those Tapes? Obstruction of justice may well have been an important motive for those who erased the videotaped interrogations (and torture) of two arab prisoners, but that doesn't rule out other motives. Why is there no discussion of the possibility that the tapes were destroyed to suppress the contents of the interviews, to keep the public from knowing what the prisoners actually said?

Alarms Censored, Polluters Sanctioned, Ignorance Recompensed The prospect of catastrophic climate change wasn't news to informed citizens, who have been following the story for the better part of 25 years, but it seems to have come as a shock to the embedded mass media. Now, the bill comes due for a generation of journalistic malpractice.

Rules of Engagement: Cowardice Codified The bravest soldier becomes a coward when he follows an order to shoot unarmed people. The slaughter reported in this week's news of people on a Baghdad bus that didn't stop for soldiers at a roadblock is a case in point.

Censored: Media Consolidation Debate Major broadcasters have turned their backs on the debate over media consolidation, as has the ink-on-paper press, and no wonder: their branch of the entertainment industry is the sole beneficiary of the FCC's unpopular deregulation move, and they'll be forever beholden to the reluctant regulators if any part of it gets through.
