from last night, that's Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Deaths of Children" and yesterday also saw Kat's "Kat's Korner: Stones release a tooth grinder" which explains why the stones give you no satisfaction with their latest release.
okay, frida berrigan remembers how sure she was that barack was going to bring hope and change but he didn't. so she writes at world can't wait:
Four years later, President Obama will again take the oath of office on a frigid January day. But this time, he will lack much of the heady “hope and change” folderol. Very little has changed in terms of Guantánamo since Obama was elected the first time. When he took office, there were 242 men at Guantánamo. There are now 76 fewer, thanks to Palau, Albania, El Salvador, Ireland, Bermuda and the nearly 50 other countries that have accepted men from Guantánamo as refugees, giving them some sense of freedom and a new life. But still 166 men remain at Guantánamo, 87 of whom have been cleared for release.
Adnan Latif was one of them. In fact he had been cleared for release three times, twice under reviews conducted by the Bush administration and once in 2009 through an Obama administration process. But the Yemeni man was not released from Guantánamo and on September 8, Latif was found dead in his cell.The Obama administration had decided that no Yemeni citizens would be returned to their home country regardless of circumstances because of security concerns in that country. And the U.S. Congress has succeeded in keeping any Guantánamo prisoner from coming to the United States. Meanwhile, innocent men continue to languish. And they will continue to die.
she can call out bush by using the term 'lies' but she can't do the same with barack.
does she not get that she is part of the reason 'innocent men continue to languish'?
slice off a piece of the blame pie, frida, because you've earned it.
until you're willing to provide the same framework to calling out barack that you did bush, you are allowing these criminal policies to continue.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
