  1. ikeep hearing that a lot of our personal in IRAQ was killed by IRAQUI men which is so much a lie because BLACKWATER was supplying most of the fire power.When the military got to IRAQ and they knew nothing about IED,S plus they had all their AMMO blown up before the troop,s started getting blownup. also when the company name blackwater was questioning the people while they were in the green zone the so call protectors were planting bombs in the car,s and sending them out into the market place to be blownup. where do you people think got their heads? And i woul like to know what movie did G.W. play in and who wrote this scrip for him this must have been a movie beccause no one could rally be that dumb.And hope that the extras which is the AMERICAN people over look his incomptance.

  2. Horton's introduction of Gareth Porter is correct. Porter doesn't regurgitate Establishment bullshit–he debunks it.

    Always good to hear from him.

Too many of my friends blindly repeat "The Surge Worked", substituting their own critical thinking for sound bites, which is the whole point of the old media these days.

    Life does suck without Anti-War Radio.
