Did a 'Thank You' Miss The Mark?

Well, I never really expected my article saying that thanks was good enough to have such a backlash. Seems like some of you that read it got it. Some missed the point entirely. Judging from a good portion of the feedback the article received; some of you think that I ... continue reading

Amid Haitian Crisis, Opportunity

When people ask me, as they do all the time, “Is there any cause for hope in Haiti?” I answer yes.It’s more tempting to think that the situation is so hopeless that it can’t any worse, especially right now. Last week, Hurricane Tomas brought three days of heavy storms, causing ... continue reading

This Veterans Day, Honor Those Who Say "No" to Immoral War

November 11 is Veterans Day, the 10th Veterans Day since the Afghanistan War began. The burden of this brutal, futile war falls heaviest on a very small slice of the population: military members and their families. Many of them consider this war immoral, but their rights to object to fighting ... continue reading

Bush Pens True Crime Book, No Justice for CIA Destruction of 92 Torture Tapes: Why George W. Should Still Worry

In his memoir (which some wise people have already moved in bookstores to the CRIME section) George W.

The Wall Street TARP Gang Wants to Take Away Your Social Security

Just over two years ago, the Wall Streeters were running around Congress and the media saying that if they don't immediately get $700 billion the world will end. Since they own large chunks of both, they quickly got their money. Even more important than the hundreds of billions of loans ... continue reading

See George Write

So George Bush wrote a book—if you believe that, you probably also believe he actually won the elections in 2000 and 2004.Yes, I am sure, George, who couldn’t string two coherent words together without the help of a team of speech-writers and policy makers, wrote a 512 page book all ... continue reading

Haitian Women and Elections: Presidents, Politics, and Power

Reconstructing Haiti is not about buildings, projects, or money. It’s about power, about who gets to control what the future Haiti looks like. Redistributing power, and creating a new society based on different theories and practices of it, are perhaps more important in the aftermath of the January 11 earthquake ... continue reading

Earlier this month, the Washington Post published an op-ed by Jack Devine, former CIA deputy director of operations and chief of the CIA Afghan Task Force. When I read it, I thought it was perhaps the most insane op-ed I'd ever come across. But leave it to David Broder, "Dean ... continue reading
