  1. How the American Psychological Association Lost Its WayRead the original story w/Photo

    1 hr ago | OpEdNews

    Here is an op-ed written with my colleague Jean Maria Arrigo that appeared last week in the Los Angeles Times : It began last December, when a Senate Intelligence Committee report laid bare the extensive involvement of individual psychologists in the CIA's black-site torture program. Then in early July a devastating independent report by a former federal prosecutor determined that more than a decade ago top APA leaders -- including the director of ethics -- began working secretly with military representatives.

  2. Obama preys on his base's fears to win the Iran debateRead the original story w/Photo

    56 min ago | Bangor Daily News

    If you are a progressive activist, President Obama can tell you everything you need to know about the Iran deal in one word: NEOCONS! I overstate, but only slightly. Since the U.S. and five other world powers agreed to terms last month intended to lift sanctions and check Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons, a key pillar of the White House argument for the deal is to point out who is against it.

    2 hrs ago | BBC News

    The CIA tortured terror suspects in its programme of "enhanced interrogation", the agency's former executive director, Buzzy Krongard, has admitted to the BBC's Panorama programme. The agency's position has always been that the "enhanced interrogation" techniques it used under George W Bush, did not amount to torture, because they were legally approved by the White House at the time.

  4. Trial of Russian Taliban could shed light on law of warRead the original story w/Photo

    4 hrs ago | World Magazine

    A terrorism case being tried in federal court could set a precedent regarding whether certain terrorism suspects are lawful military combatants under the Geneva Conventions and therefore protected from criminal prosecution. Unlike most of the terror suspects who have been tried in civilian courts since the 9/11 attacks, Irek Hamidullin-a former Russian officer who allegedly became a follower of Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar-did not support terrorists through financing, recruiting, or other activities outside the theater of war.

    United States President Barack Obama is the most admired foreign leader in Africa because he has ancestral roots in our continent. This is partly the reason his ill-informed and stereotypical admonitions of our leaders attracted cheers from a large section of our elite class.

  8. Other views: Why is Gitmo still open?Read the original story

    11 hrs ago | The Aiken Standard

    One of President Barack Obama's first acts in office was to promise that he would close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay in order to “restore the standards of due process and the core constitutional values that have made this country great even in the midst of war, even in dealing with terrorism.” Six years later, the facility is still open, although the population has dwindled to 116, 52 of whom have been cleared for transfer if security conditions can be satisfied. Part of the problem has been congressional obstructionism, but Obama also is to blame.

    12 hrs ago | Berkeley Daily Planet

    On July 20, 2015, the U.S. and Cuba reopened embassies in each other's countries that had been closed since 1961. As the freeze between the two countries thaws, I would expect the the commercial, economic, and financial embargo imposed by the U .S. on Cuba since 1960 will be ended in due time.

    13 hrs ago | American Reporter

    In May 2004, the New York Times , while claiming it was aggressive in pursuing stories about the Bush-Cheney Administration, slipped in an apology for acting more as the mouthpiece for politicians than as a watchdog for society. Part of the problem, the Times acknowledged, was that "Editors at several levels who should have been challenging reporters and pressing for more skepticism were perhaps too intent on rushing scoops into the paper."

    As the rancor and noise about torture and the present furor over President Barack Obama's concept of "preventive detention" have grown, I've been forced by simple honesty to look at these two things in a larger context. What I see troubles me.

    Havana may have its classic American automobiles but, step into a back room of this base radio station, and the U.S. sailors who broadcast here behind a Cuban minefield have a vintage collection trapped in a time warp of its own. There's a trove of about 20,000 vinyl records saved from a headquarters recall in the '90s and sometimes broadcast to base residents when the mostly strict military format allows.

    Dec 11, 2014 | American Reporter

    A cursory glance at the executive summary of a heavily-censored, 6,700-page report of a U.S. Senate investigation into the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program leads one to an inescapable conclusion: The use of torture in the years since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks is as bad as we imagined.

    As a result of some sort of corrupt media consensus, CNN's Anderson Cooper flagrantly orchestrated an attack on Herman Cain at tonight's GOP presidential debate. Cain did well in responding, but CNN's role as a political orchestrator will be suspect from now through the next several debates.

    Tax relief for the middle class came at the price of extended tax cuts for the wealthy and a cut in Social Security payroll taxes that may ultimately threaten the long-term survival of the program. Repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and allowing gays to openly serve in the military came at the price of a ban on trials in civilian courts for Guantanamo detainees and indefinite detention for many of them.
