Silence is Consent

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.

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
- Thomas Jefferson

Your President's brain is mush
Bush Hands Kerry the Keys on WoT
When asked "Can we win?" the war on terror, Bush said, "I don't think you can win it. But I think you can create conditions so that the -- those who use terror as a tool are -- less acceptable in parts of the world."

U.S. Warns Citizens in Afghanistan
American investigators combed the rubble of the Reston-based DynCorp office in a fashionable Kabul district, while police blocked off the surrounding street to all traffic. In other parts of the city, concrete barricades were erected across streets where other U.S. security and contract employees live or work.

More Abu Ghraib analysis
Abu Ghraib and the Pentagon
The two reports issued this week on the Abu Ghraib prison are an indictment of the way the Bush administration set the stage for Iraqi prisoners to be brutalized by American prison guards, military intelligence officers and private contractors.

Ever heard of Team B?
It's Time to Bench 'Team B'
The reports of the 9/11 Commission and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence miss the real problem facing the intelligence community. The real problem is not organization or culture, but the Team B concept which began in 1976, and the real villains are those hardliners who refuse to accept the unbiased and balanced judgments of intelligence professionals about the threats facing the country.
