Gareth Porter, investigative historian and journalist specializing in U.S. national security policy, discusses his article “Was Afghan Massacre Linked to IED Attack;” the confusing events and timeline during Sgt. Robert Bales’s alleged massacre; the Special Forces assassination raid that took place in the same village, on the same night, as the massacre; and how the US military uses collective punishment (a war crime) on civilians suspected of aiding the insurgency.

  2. Empire USA — Illusions of good unending

    Financial Times
    “Eight years ago, the US and UK rushed into a war against Iraq, without evidence that Saddam possessed weapons of mass destruction. This time, it is different.”

  3. 'All the information trickles out a little bit at a time…' Not on the MSM it doesn't. There is no trickle there, nothing but silence and organized ignorance.

  4. Afghan Revolution — Afghan rich have NATO doing the dying

    This Revolution would have been over in a week if First Russia and then USA had not agreed to do all the killing and dying for Afghan High Society.

    So, the civilian death count must be kept at a very high level, whatever is needed to keep the people terrorized and in fearful submission to authority.

    And so, during World War Two, when the resistance movements such as those in France were in full swing against the German occupation, was Hitler’s response ever so brutal and deadly as what Obama has been dictating?

  5. Good to have people like Gareth Porter out there actually trying to find the truth…

  6. This bridge is truly a hymn to stone and steel. I remember that was a real crowd on the walkway, awesome you guys made it.

  7. We need much more anti-western media in the world to create a balance.
