Project Amad

The Story of Detainee ISN 940

The lawyers for Adel Hamad, a Guantanamo detainee, put together this video after traveling the globe to verify his story. After five years, the notion that potentially innocent men continue to be held without charge or trial undermines the very decency of our society.

Ted Kennedy

The Johnson-Nixon-Bush Continuum

Sen. Ted Kennedy draws the striking parallels between troop “surges” during the Vietnam era and today. (Hint: Back then, the American people were always promised that the next surge would be the last. Fifty thousand U.S. dead bodies later, however .... )

Young Saddam Hussein

The Life and Death of a 40-Year CIA Asset

This quick, brutally ironic movie reminds us that America was for Saddam long before we were against him. What’s more, we were apparently for his invasion of Kuwait before we were against it.

Colbert

Stephen Colbert’s ‘Factiness’

Adjusting to an altered political landscape, the “Report” host has been forced to craft a new word for his growing arsenal: “Now, since the beginning of my show, I’ve led a crusade against facts. Too often, they upset the truth that’s in your gut. But that was when the Republicans were in power. Their version of reality was worth ignoring facts for. Now the Democrats are running the show, and their version of reality is, unfortunately, based on reality.”

Bush and Troops

Bush Flip-Flops on ‘Surge’

President Bush was against a troop surge before he was for it. In this clip from 2005, the president says that sending more troops to Iraq would “undermine our strategy of encouraging Iraqis to take the lead” and “suggest that we intend to stay forever.” Watch it.

Bill O'Reilly and Sunsara Taylor

O’Reilly Calls Peace Activist ‘Lunatic’

Wanna see Bill on the ropes? In this clip, the Fox News host goes head-to-head with WorldCantWait organizer (and sometimes Truthdig contributor) Sunsara Taylor. Unable (or unwilling) to counter her damning facts about the Iraq war, O’Reilly degenerates into name-calling.

Nancy Pelosi

Pelosi: No Money for Escalation Without Justification

Nancy Pelosi, appearing on “Face the Nation,” said the Congress will not fund a troop escalation without justification. Pelosi maintained that the Dems have no intention of cutting off funds for the war in general, although she insisted a “new direction” is necessary.

Cavuto and Frank

Barney Frank Does Battle With Fox’s Cavuto

One thing we love about Rep. Barney Frank is his total unwillingness to allow an interviewer to step on his answer, misrepresent his argument and then slither away. Neil Cavuto practices the dark arts for Fox News in this particular interview, as Frank steadfastly defends his position on exorbitant CEO pay against an avalanche of nasal smugness.
