Just Three Articles Worth Your Time Today?
by The ever watchful people at Truthout.org, (and your faithful Old Hippie.)


by Amitabh Pal | “Bush Visits His Odious Saudi Friend”
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/011108P.shtml

Amitabh Pal writes for The Progressive: “How do you punish the principal global purveyor of fundamentalist Islam, someone who backed the Taliban and continues to harshly suppress political freedoms, women and religious minorities?  If you're President Bush, you reward him with a state visit, of course!”

A Video: “Official Version of Naval Incident Starts to Unravel”
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/011108J.shtml

Gareth Porter reports for Inter Press Service, “Despite the official and media portrayal of the incident in the Strait of Hormuz early Monday morning as a serious threat to US ships from Iranian speedboats that nearly resulted in a ‘battle at sea,’ new information over the past three days suggests that the incident did not involve such a threat and that no US commander was on the verge of firing at the Iranian boats.”

Oh - and did you notice that the Pentagon has “finished” its 4 year “investigation” of our Abu Ghraib torture mess?  They decided that the only officer charged... (wait for it...) should have all charges dropped.  Well... Isn't that special?

I guess that the world can get back to not hating us now - Right?

Wikipedia's posting of “Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse” link.
