Benghazi Shows What Debauched Leaders We Have

Benghazi Deaths

Benghazi is not just a scandal and a crime but a warning of more to come if we keep voting sociopaths into office. In late September of 2012, my investigation into the attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi led

When a kill is really important we do it without collateral damage because we use a person, not a machine, and we use precision. The story reported by the Stars & Stripe: “US commandos kill senior Islamic State figure in

CIA Veteran: Be Scared of Monsters We Made to Deal with Monsters We Promised to Protect You From, which We Made

A CIA veteran is pushing for Americans to be scared of terrorists so that we’ll endorse the same war on terror that financed and recruited those terrorists. First, we go into Aghanistan and restore its opium production (totally unintentionally I’m

Dr. Ron Paul’s Diagnosis: Americans Are Driven by Fear

I remember the line from the movie Blade Runner: “Quite an experience to live in fear isn’t it? That’s what it is to be a slave.” But we can also point out that rather than just a description of slavery,

Barack Obama Accepts Responsibility for Drone Killings: Meaningless

When President Obama accepts responsibility he is actually affirming that no one in the government will ever be held accountable. Philip Giraldi has an interesting piece at the American Conservative: “Obama’s Unaccountable Drone War.” Ironically, for a president who once

When Barack Obama kills civilians “by accident” he knowingly commits acts that we condemn as terrorism when others do them. Interesting headline: “Pakistanis see double standard in drone strikes, ask Obama apology for civilian deaths.” And here’s a choice quote: “the

Michael Gerson attacks Rand Paul and shows what kind of delusions he thinks his readers want to embrace. Ironically, Gerson’s headline in the Washington Post is “Rand Paul’s grand deception.” I don’t want to say much about Rand Paul in

The Obama Administration insists that Yemen still counts as a counter-terrorism success. How do we measure success or failure in our counterterrorism operations? We don’t know that U.S. drone strikes and other activities made Yemen more politically unstable or merely

The women soldiers battling ISIS in Syria are reportedly part of a movement of anarchists against Jihadists. I’m not a left-wing anarchist who opposes the market as if it were some kind of force for exploitation. And I’m certainly no
