  • Bush’s Torture Bill: Worse Than You Think

    The interrogation bill headed for Bush’s desk would allow him to detain anyone indefinitely and decide (privately) what constitutes torture; it eliminates habeas corpus and judicial review, and it permits coerced evidence. The N.Y. Times calls it “our generation’s version of the Alien and Sedition Acts.”

    Woodward: Bush Covering Up Iraq Violence

    In his new book, “State of Denial,” Bob Woodward reports that Iraqi insurgents attack our troops over 100 times per day—far more than what Bush has disclosed publicly.

    Torture Bill Nears Bush’s Desk

    A provision that would grant President Bush the discretion of deciding what is and isn’t torture is likely to land on his desk by the weekend unless there’s a legislative miracle.
    We can only hope that the Supreme Court will toss out this travesty.

    Special-K, the Blues-Battler

    Researchers have found that the club drug ketamine, an animal anesthetic, works wonders in treating depression in humans—and works in a completely different way than Prozac or Zoloft, opening up an entirely new approach in the treatment of the disease. (via Andrew Sullivan)

    Iraq War Cost: $2b a Week

    That’s the word from a new congressional report, which tallies the spending at $379 billion in total, or 20% more than last year, as we spend more and more on establishing long-term bases in the area.

    Poll: Most Iraqis Back Attacks on U.S. Troops

    Six in 10 Iraqis approve of attacks on U.S.-led troops, and four in five say we provoke more violence than we prevent; but at least most have a negative view of Osama bin Laden.

    Tokyo Rose Dies at 90

    The woman known as “Tokyo Rose” has died at the age of 90, almost 60 years after she was imprisoned for broadcasting propaganda messages to U.S. soldiers in WWII.  Pardoned in 1977, the Japanese-American Iva Toguri never agreed to renounce her citizenship, and was convicted of treason in a sham trial in 1949.
