FBI Raids Homes of Anti-War Protesters

The FBI has executed several search warrants (aka breaking down people’s doors) in Minneapolis and Chicago as part of an investigation into a handful of anti-war protest organizers on allegations of, we kid you not, “activities connected to the material support of terrorism.”

Obama Throws 17,000 Troops at Afghanistan Mess

President Obama’s desire to escalate the war in Afghanistan, a sore spot for the progressives and anti-war folk who helped elect him, took a major step forward Tuesday when the White House announced plans to raise troop levels in Afghanistan by 50 percent over the next few months.

Sheehan Qualifies for Pelosi Challenge

As the most powerful woman in government, Nancy Pelosi is used to confronting political rivals, but the House speaker has trouble on her flank. Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan (above), displeased with the Democrats’ lack of progress against the war, has gathered enough signatures to challenge Pelosi as an independent.

Vet Groups Battle for American Hearts and Minds

There are two major veterans groups trying to make a splash in this year’s election, one conservative and the other broadly liberal. Both, says NPR’s Peter Overby, will attempt to have an impact on the order of the 2004 efforts of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. It sounds like the anti-war group will have the edge this year.

Ron Paul Won’t Go Away

John McCain may have the Republican nomination wrapped up, but that isn’t stopping Ron Paul from campaigning in Pennsylvania, where he is attacking McCain as insufficiently conservative. It’s an odd posture for a candidate who won much support for his anti-war position, a topic that Paul omits here.

Robot Insects Spying on Protesters?

It sounds far-fetched, but a number of protesters swear they’ve spotted robotic insects hovering around anti-war rallies. The government denies deploying robot spies, but it’s known that the U.S. military has had robotic flies, such as the one above, since World War II.

Iraq Will Have to Wait

Sally Field

Your Handy Guide to Emmy Censorship

Sally Field worked her Emmy acceptance speech into an (unfortunately) incoherent anti-war crescendo during Sunday night’s telecast, which, like the other two muted moments showcased in this video montage by the always-hilarious Defamer team, was awkwardly squelched by hypervigilant editors at Fox.

A Call to Service

The “Waging Peace” author argues that the antiwar movement’s strategies are failing to reach everyday Americans and doing little to end the war or repair our troubled democracy. He proposes a different model to win the hearts and minds of mainstream America: national service.

Cindy Sheehan: ‘It’s Up to You Now’

Antiwar protest icon Cindy Sheehan says she is retiring from the spotlight and “going home for awhile to try and be normal.” In her Daily Kos diary, she writes: “Goodbye America ... you are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I can’t make you be that country unless you want it.”
