No, not spin, he really means it. A sad illustration of the gaping intellectual chasm in American politics.

This is well worth reading: a clear rebuttal of Cheney's advocacy of torture, deserves a wide audience especially on the right wing of US politics where the credibility of otherwise valuable voices is being tarnished by their embrace of Cheney. He is Machiavellian in the truest sense, including believing what he says and remaining consistent to it - dangerous, toxic and bad for us all.

I've always suspected that a prime motivation for Bush and Blair in Iraq was connected to the evangelical theology of Revelation. The source in this case (an fundamentalist secularist web site) needs treating with suspicion, but the line of investigation deserves exploring as I fear it was the background dialectic biasing (undoubtedly hard) strategic decisions.

I agree with the NYT here. The benchmark has to be transparency with privacy, not secrecy with controlled disclosure. I think Obama was probably right to protect the CIA agents from prosecution, but as the depravity is exposed it's hard to see why that protection should be maintained for the ringleaders.

Seems that the company that owns Chrysler really doesn't need any money from the US government and is instead opportunistically glomming on the GM's woes simply to cushion its own investments. And guess what - the CEO is a Bush guy. The more of these I see, the more I learn to look for the disaster capitalists in every situation.

The fact the "Wall Street Crisis" is being used as a shock opportunity to fiscally rape those not inside the right-wing elite is not the surprise. The question I'm still waiting to hear answered on the economic crisis is: why now? Why not last year or next year? Why now, just at the end of the Bush & Brown regimes?
