If you don't speak up you accept what is happening. This site was born out of the mainstream media's inability to cover the news. I am just an American cititzen trying to spread the word in the era of FCC consolidation, post 9/11 Patriot Act hysteria, hackable voting machines and war without end. I rant and post news items I perceive to be relevant to our current situation.

Even so, Waxman's office said it found "large omissions" in the new report.
In a statement, the staff said the report did not include hundreds of infrastructure attacks in Iraq last year. The government's rationale, according to Waxman's office, was that uncertainty persists over who carried them out and there is a legal question about whether the Coalition Provisional Authority possessed a "property" interest in the facilities that were struck.
Such attacks were included in the statistics only if U.S. citizens or other foreign nationals were injured or killed, Waxman's office said.
