Pepe is right (again) when he concludes that the Partitioning of Syria has been the Neo/Ziocon’s main objective all along. Divide et Impera…!

The material in WikiLeaks most recent release of US diplomatic records from 1973 to 1976 called the “Kissinger Cables” is not information from a “leak.” Much of the information had already been declassified and published by the National Security Archive at George Washington University. It put the material in a cutting edge searchable database. This has prompted suggestions from critics that WikiLeaks is getting away from its mission.

Right wing writer Josh Treviño landed a contributor job at The Guardian, but when dozens of readers complained about his hackery, the management responded that they needed someone who understood the right wing mind. Really.

If you’ve been following the Julian Assange extradition story, and reading about it at the US Guardian, you may be wondering how it is that Mark Weisbrot seems at times to be the only person on the Guardian staff who is committed to telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth — in context — about Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. For every fact-filled, straightforward Weisbrot piece like this one, there seem to be half a dozen little hit pieces — some subtle, some blatant — like this one, this one and this one.

It’s fitting, really, that Mitt Romney’s first significant experience in the Old World involved riding a bicycle, since his latest seems to require a helmet, with or without the bike. One thing we do know is that a gangly, draft-dodging 20-year old yammering about Golden Tablets and whatnot is considerably less newsworthy (and funny) than a presidential candidate (!) making an even bigger ass of himself, once the charm of youthful earnestness has long since been so utterly trampled under the stomping hooves of arrogant, plutocratic cluelessness. If he had any sense, Romney would try one of two things: A) Get his act together, or B) Make the trip onto a comedy tour, before it’s too late.

Today, The Guardian reports on the United Kingdom’s increased reliance on drones to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan. More than 280 laser-guided Hellfire missiles and bombs have been fired at “suspected insurgents.” Additionally, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) claims that only four Afghan civilians have been killed. But neither the US nor the UK has any consistently applied, credible means to verify who the targets are, let alone determine who the victims are that are killed around them.

The Administration and Afghanistan revealed Sunday that the United States and Afghanistan had reached a preliminary agreement for the continued presence of US forces in Afghanistan for another 10 years after the supposed withdrawal of “combat forces” in 2014 . The agreement was widely expected after the Administration and Karzai regime appeared to resolve earlier disagreements about who controls armed night-time raids on Afghan homes and who controls the imprisonment of detainees.
