The False Comfort of War

We have focused almost exclusively on George Bush’s “appeasement” remarks as an indirect assault on Barack Obama and his other critics. That is immaterial, for Bush’s text perpetuates the wrongheadedness and false assumptions of our posture in the world today.

When It Costs Too Much to Support the Troops

The comment was outrageous, but it was not the least bit surprising. A psychologist responsible for assessing returning war veterans for post-traumatic stress disorder—a psychological ailment that could entitle them to monthly disability payments—told staff members not to diagnose the illness because to do so would increase the government’s costs.

Pacifying Dr. King

A Better Iraq? That’s What Saddam Said

The war is over for now in Sahar al-Jawari’s Baghdad neighborhood, but life is still a struggle. An American soldier encourages her not to be pessimistic, but it’s hard to look on the bright side while supporting a family by selling off your jewelry.

Nixonland, Then and Now: Q&A With Rick Perlstein

“Nixonland”—that’s Rick Perlstein’s term for the political world where candidates win power by mobilizing people’s resentments, anxieties and anger, where politics destroys its victims. Do we still live in Nixonland, and if so, when will we leave?

Truthdig tips its hat this week to former Army Sgt. Adrienne Kinne, who has defied her one-time higher-ups by speaking out about how military officials knew that a target list in April 2003 contained the name of Baghdad’s Palestine Hotel, which was shelled by a U.S. tank on April 8 even though embedded reporters were staying there.
