The Great Forgetting

The Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, located on the Mall in Washington, D.C., is a monument to historical amnesia.  The blond limestone building, surrounded by indigenous crops of corn, tobacco and squash, invites visitors on a guilt-free, theme park tour of Native American history, where acknowledgment of the American genocide is in extremely bad taste.

Biden One-Ups Bush

It’s not just Bushie loyalists and Republicans who are gunning for more money to be poured (out of taxpayers’ pockets) into the Iraq war chest.  Take Sen.

A Legacy of Legitimizing Torture

President Bush lamented Alberto Gonzales’ resignation and insisted that the “good name” of the attorney general had been besmirched for partisan purposes. Good name? Robert Scheer reviews the highlights (or, rather, the low points) of Gonzales’ tenure and looks at the troubling legacy he leaves behind.

The Real Iraq Progress Report

The recent parade of political tourists to Iraq, during which easily impressed pundits and members of Congress came to be dazzled by the wonders of the troop surge, probably ensures that this murderous adventure will continue well into the next presidency—even if the Democrats win.

Starving Gaza

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Israel and the U.S. are making a ghetto out of Gaza, hoping that cutting the territory off from the rest of the world will weaken democratically elected Hamas. They are wrong, and the innocent people of the Gaza Strip are paying the price.
