KSM - Khalid Shaikh Mohammed

David Swanson: What is the corporate owned media telling us to talk about with the KSM trial in NY, and what are they NOT telling us to talk about?

David Swanson: KSM and MSM: The questions still NOT being asked by the media...

Ray McGovern: What the Fawning Corporate Media (or FCM) have so far neglected is the likelihood that the testimony will be so public that they will have to break their studied silence about why Sheikh Mohammed and his associates say they orchestrated the attacks of 9/11.

Ray McGovern: Media commentary on the upcoming 9/11 trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has raised concern that state secrets may be divulged, including details about how the Bush administration used torture to extract evidence about al-Qaeda.

Empty Wheel: The Wall Street Journal solicited an op-ed attacking the decision to try KSM in civilian court from one of the people–John Yoo–with the biggest conflict on such a decision.

Empty Wheel: Trial Showing Torture Was Unnecessary

Glenn Greenwald: This is literally true: the Right's reaction to yesterday's announcement -- we're too afraid to allow trials and due process in our country -- is the textbook definition of "surrendering to terrorists."

Glenn Greenwald: The Right's textbook "surrender to terrorists"

If America knew what Israel is doing:

Rudy Giuliani opens up a can of WHOOP-ASS on Rudy Giuliani, as he debates himself on having the KSM trial in New York. He really kicked his ass!!! Geraldo Rivera is now the "voice of reason" on FOX "news":

Health Care Crisis

Drug firms raise prices in face of health reform

CNN: 1 in 6 Americans goes hungry. Government report shows 15% of Americans had trouble putting food on the table -- a record high.

Mortgage delinquencies hit another record in 3Q

Surprise!!! The Republicans want you to have higher credit card rates!!! I know, this has come as a huge shock to you. Did they use the "We're really helping you..." tactic or "We're saving jobs" (in India) tactic??? Keep on voting Republican!!! Did anyone ask Sarah Palin if she's for this? Let me guess: "NO"!

Republican senators on Wednesday blocked an effort to debate a bill that would prevent credit card companies from raising interest rates ahead of new regulations coming into force next year.

SURPRISE!!! GOP blocks effort to freeze credit card interest rates

Push to curb credit-card rates fades. Democrats resist consumer outcry

If Obama really wants to know what's behind entrenched joblessness, he should start by looking at the man in the mirror.

McCain camp: Palin book is "fiction":

McCain adviser: Palin’s book is fiction. Depictions ‘took place entirely in her imagination,’ says Wallace

AGAIN!!!!! FOX "news" doctors video of "crowds" at Palin book signing, DAYS after Sean Hannity apologized for doctoring footage of Michele Bachmann's Tea Pary crowd! The other day, I joked that FOX "news" will "pre-emptively apologize" for doctoring videos. Sadly, that seems to be a great idea. FOX "news" is a 24x7 GOP political operation, it's not news. 100% of their "mistakes" (wink wink) favor Republicans. The Tea Partys are an astroturf GOP operation, if you went in the middle of a Tea Party and yelled, "Health care for all Americans", they'd probably lynch you. America is turning into a fascist nation...only when there's a Democratic president.

Video 1 - FOX "news" LATEST doctored Palin crowd, DAYS after the Hannity/Tea Party doctored video.
Video 2 - Hannity apologizing a few days ago for a DIFFERENT crowd doctoring video. So how sincere was his apology, if a few days later they do it again! That's what I said a few days ago! I said that Hannity is really saying: "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PLEASE STOP POINTING OUT OUR DOCTORED VIDEOS!!!" How stupid can you be, to do the same exact thing a few days later, and think no one will notice??? Jesus Christ!!!
