Scott HortonScott Horton    Scott Horton’s No Comment blog on consistently blows me away. An attorney and human right’s advocate, Scott writes about an amazing array of subjects. Right now, if you navigate to the site, there are posts up about Bertold Brecht, how a federal court has declared inmates at Guantanamo not to be “persons”, on ending the culture of immunity for contractors and an insightful overview of what has happened and what will happen in the unfolding scandal over the destruction of the CIA torture tapes. Just read him is all I’m saying.

U.S. Airstrikes Up In Iraq

This report on NPR’s Day to Day made me see red today. The reporter, Josh White, unquestioningly spouted the Air Force talking points he’s been given. According to him, the military “clears away the cilvilians” before they bomb the targeted area to shit. No mention of where the civilians go, what they do. I guess they just go away to happyland while we surgically strike the evil ones. In this article by the same reporter in the Washington Post, there’s a little more about how they get the civilians to vacate. “After doing a show of force to get civilians out of the area, they engaged the house and the fighters with a 500-pound bomb,” he said of the attack by two British Tornado GR4 jets. “They took the fighters out.”
