Nothing More Dangerous Than a Recovering "Realist?"

By Stephen M. Walt

Back in 2002, the Council on Foreign Relations sponsored a book by Kenneth Pollack (subsequently director of research at the Saban Center for Middle East Studies at Brookings), entitled The Threatening Storm: The Case for Invading Iraq. The book argued that Saddam Hussein was irrational and undeterrable and that the United States had no choice but to remove him from power.

Report Faults State Department, DynCorp for Missing $1 Billion

By Josh Rogin

The State Department cannot account for more than $1 billion it paid out to contractor DynCorp to train police during the first years of the Iraq war, in just one example of management shortcomings that have put at risk $2.5 billion worth of money spent on training policemen around the world, according to a damning new report.

The Sanctity of Military Spending

By Glenn Greenwald

Even as the U.S. sunk under increasingly crippling levels of debt over the last decade, defense spending rose steadily, sometimes precipitously. That explosion occurred even as overall military spending in the rest of the world decreased, thus expanding the already-vast gap between our expenditures and the world's.

Rule By The Rich

By Paul Craig Roberts

Obama has reneged on every promise he made, from ending wars, to closing Gitmo, to providing health care for Americans, to curtailing the domestic police state, to putting the interests of dispossessed Americans ahead of the interests of the rich banksters who robbed Americans of their homes and pensions.

Obama: Counterfeit Change and No-Excuse Lies

By Dr. Goldstein

Cheers and applause broke out as Obama assured us "I will never lie to you" while Oprah cried her puddle of tears. Little did we know that Obama was just another smooth-talking politician, telling "the folks" exactly what they wanted to hear. I'll admit it: I was one of the people he suckered. Obama's lies were awesome and they got me really pumped up.

"I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank. " - Candidate Barack Obama, October 27, 2007.

Bush Pentagon Hired Conspiracy Theorist As Al Qaeda Specialist

By Justin Elliott

When the Pentagon's internal think tank decided in 2004 it needed a better understanding of Al Qaeda, it turned to an unlikely source: the terrorism analyst Laurie Mylroie, who was known as the chief purveyor of the discredited idea that Saddam Hussein was behind Sept. 11 and many other attacks carried out by Al Qaeda.

British Invasion of Iraq Was Illegal: Ex-govt Lawyer

By Alice Ritchie

"I considered that the use of force against Iraq in March 2003 was contrary to international law," Michael Wood, chief legal advisor to the Foreign Office between 1999 and 2006, told the Chilcot inquiry in London. "In my opinion, that use of force had not been authorised by the Security Council, and had no other legal basis in international law."
