SIX of the Bush gang are under special consideration for indictment by Baltasar Garzón, the Spanish investigative judge who ordered the arrest of Augusto Pinochet. It is said that it is “highly probable” that the case will go forward and arrest warrants will be issued. The charges will be for torture and mistreatmant of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay under the Geneva Conventions. ALBERTO GONZALES, JOHN YOO, DOUGLAS FEITH are the names we see in the paper. Of course the US is expected to ignore calls for extradition. And it may be difficult for evidence to be compiled. But isn’t it possible that the evidence is in mountains and there for the asking? And, tried in absentia, these party animals could find themselves prisoners forever in the US. And maybe have enough leftover hubris to travel and wind up cooling their heels in some foreign hoosegow? One never knows, does one.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
