Deceptive Reversal on Spying

Good Morning. Several new items today...

  • Condi Rice--and most Americans--aren't paying a personal price for the Iraq war. See Pierre's Tuesday Column, "Barbara Boxer was right."
  • So it turns out the US government has been torturing prisoners without a clue about the effectiveness of the technique. See "Torture for Dummies."
Plenty more in the Daily Journal. Thanks for reading. pt

Reviled Prophets

Good Morning. Several new items on the theme of reviled prophets today.

  • Today marks the fifteenth anniversary of the break-out of the first Gulf War, brought to you by CNN's Peter Arnett, Jim Holliman and Bernard Shaw live in Baghdad. But let's not forget what Peter Arnett prophesied about the second war, just eight days into the invasion, on April 1, 2003, only to be summarily fired for it. See "Peter Arnett's Prophesies"
  • Whatever happened to the $1 billion American embassy in Baghdad? See "Fortress of Folly"
Plenty more, including Glenn Gould and Burqah-bikinis, in the Daily Journal...

Thanks for
