Swimming Against the Current

For 10 years we’ve been holding the fort against the War Party – exposing their scams, debunking their lies, and telling the truth about our foreign policy of unbridled aggression.

When politicians in both parties and all the "mainstream" media were echoing the U.S. government line that, of course Saddam Hussein had "weapons of mass destruction," we said: no way.

When "news" anchors were wearing American flag lapel buttons and echoing U.S. government press releases in the run-up to war – too frightened to raise a peep of protest or contravene the official line – Antiwar.com told the truth about this war: that it was bound to be a disaster.

When the neocons lied about Iraq’s alleged "links" to al-Qaeda and insisted that 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta met an Iraqi intelligence agent at a Prague airport, we said: it didn’t happen.

While the War Party fabricated the Niger uranium forgeries and the "respectable" media ignored the deception, we followed up on the story – and broke new ground in reporting it.

We’ve been in the trenches for a decade now, fighting the good fight. But we can’t continue to do it without your financial assistance. Antiwar.com is needed now more than ever, and you are needed to help with our quarterly Fall Pledge Week.

Make your contribution today.

In the first two days of our drive, 348 of you gave a total of $17,095. We need to pick up the pace to reach the $60,000 to keep Antiwar.com running for the next quarter. Please help.
