Woodward’s 60 Minutes bloodbath
By Mike Whitney
Veteran journalist Bob Woodward can always be counted on to tell the truth… after all the other options have been exhausted. His new book doesn’t veer too far from the pattern he’s followed his entire career; one minute he’s the “kingmaker” dishing up hearty-helpings of literary tripe like “Bush at War” and “Plan of Attack” and the next minute he’s ramming a scimitar into the lower lumbar region of his prey.
9/11 Panel Members Weren’t Told of Meeting
By PHILIP SHENON
Members of the Sept. 11 commission said today that they were alarmed that they were told nothing about a White House meeting in July 2001 at which George J.

War is Peace
By Irene Rheinwald
Israel and the United States, as self-styled purveyors of democracy and freedom, have ironically fallen into their own propaganda trap.

The Axis of Powers; Nazi Tactics by Israel and America in the Phony War On Terror
By Joel Fischer

But these tactics will never produce either the peace or victory the Axis of Powers claim they want. Remember WWII. The Nazis lost!
