Exxon Allegedly Paid for Climate Misinformation Drive

Following in the footsteps of big tobacco, ExxonMobil paid 43 ideological groups $16 million to attack the science behind global warming, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.

Record Injuries Leave Veterans Stranded

Former Truthdigger of the Week Linda Bilmes offers this scathing analysis of America’s treatment of its wounded. The Harvard public finance expert writes that for every fatality in Iraq, there are 16 injuries, and doctors and bureaucrats at home are struggling to keep up with the unprecedented—and underestimated—surge of wounded soldiers.

Stealing Iraq’s Oil

The Iraqi parliament is expected to vote on a U.S.-crafted law that would open the nation’s oil industry to exploitive foreign control. If the bill passes, it would give foreign investors up to 75 percent of Iraq’s oil profits until costs are recouped, and then twice the industry standard after that. This law is a naked admission that the U.S. invaded Iraq, at least in part, for its oil.

Allies Condemn Saddam Hanging

Adding to a growing chorus of disapproval emanating from Europe, Tony Blair’s official spokesman has said Saddam Hussein’s execution “shouldn’t have happened in that way.” Earlier, Gordon Brown, the man widely expected to be Britain’s next prime minister, said the hanging was “completely unacceptable,” calling it a “deplorable set of events.”

Bush Thinks He’s the Emperor

Adding to a long list of subversive signing statements, George W. Bush has taken the knees out from under recently passed postal legislation that requires a warrant to open mail. You’d think with his army of advisers and aides someone might explain to the president that when Congress passes a law, and he signs it, that’s the law, not a prompt for interpretive rule.

Chirac Blasts U.S.-Led Invasion of Iraq

The French president told a group of ambassadors that the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq had destabilized the Middle East and allowed terrorism to spread—just as he had predicted on the eve of the war in 2003.

Good News for Election Integrity

California’s incoming secretary of state, Debra Bowen, says her office will conduct “a top to bottom review of every voting system in use anywhere in California.” What’s more, Bowen has indicated she is willing to decertify machines approved by her predecessor, Bruce McPherson. We can only hope Bowen’s investigation will spark a national trend.

It Only Took 218 Years

Nancy Pelosi’s new job as the first woman speaker of the House has been something of a footnote to the Democrats’ success in the midterm elections, but her truly historic ascension has inspired women and men alike—even Republicans. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, took his four daughters to the swearing-in: “It’s a good role model for all women, and my daughters can see that they can get to the highest levels of government.”
