Bad or worse than Bush

Well, Obama has certainly extended and hardened the cement on a lot of Bush’s post-9/11 Terror Inc. policies, so he’s very similar to Bush in every way that way. His domestic policy is a bit different, but when you talk about drones, the American Empire, the NSA, civil liberties, attacks on journalism and whistleblowers, he’s as bad or worse than Bush. He hasn’t started as many wars, but he’s extended the ones we had, and I don’t even think Dick Cheney or Richard Nixon would say the president has the right to unilaterally decide whom he can kill around the world. On Tuesdays, the president can just decide whom he wants to kill, and you know, since 9/11 there are magic words like 'terror', and if you use magic words, you can justify any power grab you want.

"I Would Do It All Again"

[Todays released whistleblower John] Kiriakou is the only official to be jailed for any reason relating to CIA torture [...]

Kiriakou says, "I would do it all over again," after seeing the outlawing of torture after he came forward. Kiriakou also responds to the details of the partially released Senate Committee Report on the CIA’s use of torture; argues NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden did a "great national service," but will not get a fair trial if he returns to the United States; and describes the conditions inside FCI Loretto, the federal prison where he served his sentence and saw prisoners die with "terrifying frequency" from lack of proper medical care.

The War on terror drugs

1) 'Escalate and Exit'
2) 'It is now up to the Afghans to decide what their future will look like.'

["Die US-Basis Ramstein auf deutschem Boden gilt aber seit Längerem als Schaltzentrale im Drohnenkrieg gegen den Terror." (telepolis, Obamas Todesliste]

Everyone’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s really an easy way: Stop participating in it.
