Kelley B. Vlahos, featured Antiwar.com columnist and contributing editor for The American Conservative magazine, discusses the police accountability and prison reform website criminaljustice.change.org; why the protests in Iraq – so far met with arrests, beatings and torture – make Washington squirm; and the fate of Antiwar Radio guest Shane Bauer, who has been in Iranian custody since being arrested for suspected espionage in July 2009.

  1. Everything the U.S. Government touches turns to shit, it seems. It invaded Iraq, and brought death and destruction to that country. Now our puppet, Prime Minister Maliki, is torturing and repressing his own people. The U.S. Government's reaction? Silence.

    My compliments to Kelley Vlahos on her excellent reporting on this issue.

    1. "Now our puppet, Prime Minister Maliki, is torturing and repressing his own people. The U.S. Government's reaction? Silence."

      As long as the Iraqi government is compliant to US wishes and open to corporate and governmental bribes, it's "mission accomplished" as far as the US geopolitical goals are concerned. They aren't even remotely concerned about Iraqi citizens except with respect to any affect serious unrest may have on that. The US doesn't come close to matching the self-image that Americans have of themselves and the motives of their government. Once you realize that, it becomes easier to understand the real story hidden behind the BS propaganda facade.
