Victory For Wen Ho Lee

The five media heavies who shamelessly promoted the government’s lies about the Los Alamos scientist chose to settle today rather than reveal their government sources.
Lee was savaged by a media fueled by government rumors that he was spying for China, an accusation he was never officially charged with. Lee was imprisoned in solitary confinement for nine months in 1999-2000 and ultimately received an apology from the judge who heard his case. Truthdig says: The media was not defending freedom of the press but their own right to operate as a megaphone for government agents with an agenda to slander an American citizen. The media went to bat for government agents who broke the law.  When will those agents be held accountable?

(And we’re not alone in this sentiment.)

    The U.S. military has said that four people died during a military operation in the town of Ishaq in March, but this tape may prove that U.S. forces in fact deliberately killed 11 innocent Iraqis.
