Truthdiggers of the Week: Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese

What emerges from the duo’s reckoning of promises broken by Obama’s “health care” law is the sense that nothing pledged to an ailing, exhausted and impoverished public is sure to be delivered.

‘Too Scared to Go Outside’

One year ago, a 67-year-old Pakistani woman was killed allegedly in a U.S. drone attack while picking vegetables with her grandchildren. President Obama has never acknowledged her death or that of any other alleged drone victim in Pakistan. This week, her son and two of her grandchildren traveled to Washington, D.C., to testify before members of Congress.

The Fantasy of a Clean War

The day Obama was sworn in for the second time, a U.S. drone strike hit Yemen. It was the third such attack in that country in as many days. Despite the rhetoric from the president on the Capitol steps, there was abundant evidence that he would continue to preside over a country that is in a state of perpetual war.

Forbes has ranked a list of political, religious and business leaders in order of their, uh, power, and guess what? Barack Obama, commander in chief of the largest military force in the history of the world, is only in second place.

Spain and Many Others Are in Cahoots With the NSA

Spanish newspaper El Mundo reports that Spain’s intelligence agency collaborated with the NSA to track the phone calls of millions of Spaniards. And Spain’s not the only country that’s been caught red-handed. It appears the U.S. isn’t alone in its obsession with spying on its own inhabitants.
