Obama and the CIA: What Must Be Done

Melvin A.

The infatuation with the military and intelligence communities, however, can create serious problems for both the administration and the nation."

I’m not exactly sure how this approach exemplifies fiscal responsibility; a priority that Obama emphasized the importance of achieving during last week’s State of the Union Address...

War, Budgets and Blind Ambition

By Chris Floyd

The ending of the imperial wars and the dismantling of America's global military empire -- and its global gulag -- would save trillions of dollars in the coming years.
