FOIA Review

Another promise of "change" miserably fails

Steve Watson
Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

An Associated Press review of Freedom of Information Act reports filed by 17 major government agencies has revealed that, despite Barack Obama's promise to make government more transparent, more information is now being withheld from the public.



Obama’s (and Bush’s) enemy combatant policy

Washington Examiner
by Gene Healy


Ever since the failed Christmas bombing, Republicans have smelled blood in the political waters, and they’ve assailed President Obama for his allegedly soft-on-terror policies. This campaign is based on phony charges, and it’s a dangerous distraction from the fight for limited government...


Obama threatens to veto greater intelligence oversight

by Glenn Greenwald


[T]he Obama White House — just as was true for the Bush White House, and using the same rationale — does not want any meaningful oversight (i.e., briefings beyond the absurd Gang of Eight sham) on whether it’s breaking the law in the conduct of its intelligence activities. One of the Intelligence Community’s most loyal Congressional servants — Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein — told The Post that she thinks a deal can be worked out with the White House, meaning that the bill needs to be diluted even further, to the point of virtual nothingness, in order for the White House to accept it. It’s critical to note that this is far from an abstract concern, because the Obama administration has almost certainly been hiding intelligence activities from the Intelligence Committees, thus ensuring it operates without oversight...

From Wall Street to Skank Street

By Joe Bageant

The "real" economy as most of us experience it, is stretched out dead as a day old codfish down there on Main Street. And all Obama or any other politician stewed in the super-capitalist ethos can do is pump money into the banks, and then beg the bankers to come out of their gilded lairs and trickle on the corpse. That's the problem with capitalism -- capitalists.


The Next Big Bailout is on the Way

Prepare To Get Reamed!

By Mike Whitney

In Praise of Shared Outrage

Roy J. Eidelson, Truthout: "'We have to tolerate the inequality as a way to achieve greater prosperity and opportunity for all.' These were the words of Lord Brian Griffiths, Goldman Sachs international adviser, when he spoke at London's St. Paul's Cathedral last fall. With inequality at historic levels here in the United States and around the world, it's a reassuring message we all might wish to be true."

The deadly current toward nuclear arms

Boston Globe
by James Carroll


Think of Niagara Falls. Think of the onrushing current as the river pours itself toward the massive cascade. Imagine a lone swimmer a hundred yards or so upstream, desperately stroking against the current to keep from being swept over the precipice. That swimmer is President Obama, the river is the world, and the falls is the threat of unchecked nuclear weapons. Henry James used the image of Niagara to describe the rush into World War I: ‘the tide that bore us along.’ Hannah Arendt defined the wars of the 20th century as events ‘cascading like a Niagara Falls of history. …’ But now the image has entered the lexicon of strategic experts who warn of a coming ‘cascade of proliferation,’ one nation following another into the deadly chasm of nuclear weapons unless present nuclear powers find a way to reverse the current...

Bundespräsident kritisiert Hartz IV Debatte

Der Bundespräsident Horst Köhler kritisiert die vom Außenminister Guido Westerwelle (FDP) angefachte Hartz IV Debatte. Im Magazin "Focus Online" sagte Köhler: "Eine Sozialstaatsdiskussion, in der die einen immer nur an Umverteilung denken und die anderen die Arbeitslosen vor allem in der Hängematte sehen, hilft keinem weiter."
