Will Grigg, founder and editor of The Right Source and author of Liberty in Eclipse: The Rise of the Homeland Security State, discusses the legal underpinnings of the modern American torture regime, the Yoo-Bybee memo which allowed for the torture of terrorist suspects – including to death, the predictable consequences of institutionalizing torture, the sickness of the Congress demanding the Iraqis pay for the reconstruction of their country that this one destroyed and the shame in the refusal of the American people to hold our public servants accountable.

  1. I, your big neighbor on the block, come over to your home seeking things to steal, demolish part of it, kill a few members of your family, and tell you to pay for it!

  2. I like the expression “oil windfall”.

    According to Merriam-Webster, a “windfall” is “an unexpected, unearned, or sudden gain or advantage”.

    Makes only sense if the “windfall” is meant to actually NOT be of benefit to the Iraqis.

    And

    “Kissinger … a Johnny Appleseed of war,insurrection,revolution and misery for decades” ?

  3. According to Dr Bob Bowman, former chief of US Air Force Missile Defense, missile defense is the missing link to a First Strike. Dr Bob Bowman thinks missiles in Poland will be very useful to shoot down any surviving Russian missiles after a First Strike. Therefore the Russians will implement Launch On Warning. The terrible consequences of a mistake will be caused by the stupid Pentagon. Dr Bob Bowman agrees that the Pentagon (McCain?) will get disarming first-strike capability by 2011/12. Acc. to former Trident missile engineer Bob Aldridge-www.plrc.org-the US Navy can track and destroy all enemy subs simultaneously. The main danger is Russian Launch On Warning because of US First-Strike Capability. Please read Keir Lieber and Daryl Press, “The Rise of US Nuclear Primacy”, 2006 March/April issue of Foreign Affairs. By 2011/12 the Pentagon will have achieved that the Russians have no choice but Launch On Warning. “Bloody fools in the Pentagon”, as Brigadier Harbottle stated.
