Welcome to Grandpa’s World, Baby Cheney

The picture released by the White House last week of Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, cradling their newborn grandson Samuel David Cheney represents an opportunity for future progress in human rights—if they choose to embrace it with as much care as they do baby Samuel.

Worse Than Watergate, Part II

If Attorney General Alberto Gonzales wasn’t in enough trouble already, he now has to deal with the fallout from his disgraceful behavior in John Ashcroft’s hospital room in March of 2004, when Gonzales attempted to strong-arm Ashcroft into reauthorizing the domestic surveillance program implemented by the White House after 9/11—as Ashcroft lay ailing on his sickbed.

Iran Calls Bush’s Bluff

Relations between the U.S. and Iran are shifting as U.N. inspectors discover that Iran’s uranium enrichment program appears to be further along than previously believed.  These new developments only underscore the increasing volatility in the very region the American invasion of Iraq was supposed to secure, and they put the Bush administration in a codependent relationship with Iran’s ruling regime.

Bush Alums Reap Their Rewards

It’s no wonder that an administration that celebrated and rewarded liars and opportunists would produce the likes of Paul Wolfowitz, who followed up the Iraq disaster with a scandal at the World Bank, and George Tenet, who held his tongue until the price was right. But how do they sleep at night?

After Thousands Have Died, Tenet Comes Clean

The three short sentences at the beginning of Chapter 17 of former CIA Director George Tenet’s memoir, “At the Center of the Storm,” tell it all: “The United States did not go to war in Iraq solely because of WMD. I doubt it was even the principal cause. Yet it was the public face that was put on it.”

Bush Blames the Troops

Ignoring the fact that we have a system of civilian control over the military, which is why he, the elected president, is designated the commander in chief, Bush hides behind the fiction that the officers in the field are calling the shots when in fact he has put them in an unwinnable situation and refuses to even consider a timetable for getting them out.

Heck of a Job, Wolfie

Paul Wolfowitz, the former deputy secretary of defense who helped sell a stupid war, now finds himself in a bit of trouble. As head of the World Bank, he secured a cushy pay raise for his girlfriend, lied about it and alienated his staff in the process. Not to worry—President Bush still thinks he’s doing a bang-up job.

Iraqis Finally Unite—Against the U.S.

Iraqis want Americans out of their country more than ever, as indicated by the recent mass protest in Najaf. But if you ask Joe Lieberman, the sight of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis chanting anti-American slogans and tearing apart our flag was just proof that the “surge” is working.

Leave Your Morals at the Border

The Supreme Court may not be interested in applying American values to Guantanamo Bay, but at least one soldier has taken a principled stand against the prison’s tortured justice system.

Pentagon Cowers Behind Wordplay

The military covered its ass on Monday, with a report on the investigation into the exploitation of Pat Tillman that stank of non-denial denials. After three years of lies and obfuscation, the Tillman family deserves better.
