U.S. forces in Iraq recently uncovered an Iraqi-run torture center in Baghdad. But as David Enders reports, the torture chambers were common knowledge in Iraq long before being reported in the American press. (LINK)

Mark Levine writes on the Christian Peacemakers in Iraq and the failure of “cheap activism” among the antiwar movement here at home. (LINK)

Tom Engelhardt reflects on how 9/11 saved George W. Bush’s faltering presidency, and notes that even before the attacks, “a few aspects of our post-9/11 political world were quite recognizable even then.” (LINK)

Also, see Mark Fiore’s cartoon on the impending Stanley “Tookie” Williams execution. “A really good way to show that killing is wrong… is to kill people. Got it kids?” (LINK)
