Iraqis, at minimum, deserve to see officials in the United States and United Kingdom who engineered the war and then waged empire for over eight years brought to justice. They deserve their own moment of truth. And, it may seem like such justice could never occur, but the people of the United States owe it to the people of Iraq.

I guess Shell Oil can’t be expected to be more honest than any other oil company. Although one hopes they might be more honest in Alaska than in Nigeria, for instance, that is probably hoping for way too much.

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks editor-in-chief who was granted asylum by Ecuador, delivered a speech from a balcony on the embassy building on August 19. It was a speech where he expressed immense gratitude to Ecuador, Latin American countries, the Ecuador embassy staff, supporters who had demonstrated outside the embassy, his supporters all over the world, WikiLeaks staff and his family. The speech also called out the US government for waging a war on whistleblowers, which Assange urged the government to end now.
I appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live last night to discuss the speech and why Ecuador granted Assange asylum. The host was Dotun Adebayo, a Nigerian-born British radio host who hosts the show, “Up All Night.”

Even with some faces obscured and two-thirds of the audio missing, the tapes clearly show a nuclear infrastructure wholly unprepared for the disaster, and an industry and government wholly determined to downplay that disaster’s severity.

While the over trillion dollars the United States has already spent on our four decade long war on drugs has totally failed to achieve anything, I’m sure throwing another $40 million of good money after bad will be the tipping point that wins the war.
