Are “Stooge” Reporters Complicit in Gaddafi Human Right Violations?

Gaddafi, as with Saddam and the other police state monsters, is known for rounding up citizens, threat of beatings and arrests, threats of firings or worse, forcing them to take part in public demonstrations. This is a violation of human rights, a crime. It is a crime when Gaddafi does it and it is also a crime when others, the "guests" of Gaddafi, betray the people of Libya and take part in supporting these human rights abuses.

Blowing Smoke: Obama Is Morally High

On his second day in office Obama promised to close the Guantanamo Bay “detention” center (if it was called a prison camp it would connote that the inmates are prisoners, and prisoners are entitled to rights, detainees aren’t.)

Davis Case Has Thrown Overboard America’s Rules On Terrorism

As per Paul Craig Robert, hypocrisy in America is now so commonplace it is no longer noticed. While it enjoys torturing other peoples for American sins, it objects to human rights abuses of countries it despises such as Burma, Pakistan, Iran, Syria. In USA if a person tortures a dog he is sent to jail, but a government functionary indulging in torture against fellow beings is ignored.

What we know, or have the means to know, is already in excess of any security threat that can be reasonably estimated from random groups of militant Islamicists. Not only that, the concentration of such huge information and spy networks in relatively few hands and the lack of oversight pose a domestic and global danger far greater than the sporadic actions of disenfranchised groups in the Middle East

GORDON DUFF: SELLING WIKILEAKS, SELLING HATE FOR AMERICA

Wikileaks has divided the world into two camps, those who love Wikileaks as a slap in the face for the United States and those who recognize the stench of Wikileaks for what it is, simple Israeli propaganda. Millions around the world look at Wikleaks as poor, harried Julian Assange and his personal struggle against the evil empire of Bush/Obama America. Hate, envy, oh, there is lots of envy here, America stimulates that with its highways filled with gas guzzling cars, eating half the world's meat, all the best music, television and a military that scares the begeezus out of everyone. What's not to hate?

When then-President George W. Bush was asked to approve a tough interrogation technique known as waterboarding on September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, he wasted little time in deciding.

Ernest Canning on Robert Gibbs and the Obama Administration

Perhaps most disturbing is that the President's zeal to please his true constituency --- corporate America, Wall Street and the military-industrial complex --- comes from the same Presidential candidate whose soaring and lofty, yet deceptive campaign rhetoric gave rise to hope in so many that Election Day 2008 would mark a return economic fairness, transparency, a restoration of the rule of law, an end to the fear-driven perpetual "war on terror," and a restoration of nature's ecological balance.
