Republicans are furious. Sen. John McCain says the White House intentionally leaked the story to make Obama look good.

"Regardless of how politically useful these leaks have been to the administration, they have to stop." John McCain, CBS News, June 6

Multi-Billion-Dollar Terrorists and the Disappearing Middle Class

July 11th, 2011

James Petras

The US government (White House and Congress) spends $10 billion dollars a month, or $120 billion a year, to fight an estimated “50 -75 ‘Al Qaeda types’ in Afghanistan”, according to the CIA and quoted in the Financial Times of London (6/25 -26/11, p. 5). During the past 30 months of the Obama presidency, Washington has spent $300 billion dollars in Afghanistan, which adds up to $4 billion dollars for each alleged ‘Al Queda type’. If we multiply this by the two dozen or so sites and countries where the White House claims ‘Al Qaeda’ terrorists have been spotted, we begin to understand why the US budget deficit has grown astronomically to over $1.6 trillion for the current fiscal year.

PASOK: Pan Hellenic Socialist Kleptocrats

July 6th, 2011

James Petras

“George Papandreou is not bought, he is rented. He sells public enterprises to the multinationals. He reduces wages, pensions and employment at the behest of the IMF. He turns over the public treasury to the European banks. He supports NATO’s war against Libya. He directs the Greek Coast Guard to enforce Netanyahu’s blockade of Gaza.” - According to a demonstrator in Syndigma Square, Athens, July 3, 2011

Introduction

A self-proclaimed “Socialist” Government in Greece is imposing by ballots and clubs the most far reaching reversals of wages, pensions, jobs, educational, health and tax programs in the history of Western Europe.

Pakistani Intelligence on the Defensive after bin Laden Raid

May 13th, 2011

By Brian Dowing

That Osama bin Laden has been living comfortably in Abbottabad and evidently directing al Qaeda from there – all within earshot of a Pakistani military facility – has been a tremendous embarrassment to Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), but it comes as no surprise to Indian or many other intelligence services, though realization in Washington has been too long in coming. Paradoxically, US intelligence's recent success in Abbottabad has underscored a long-running failure.

ISI has long been complicit in aiding al Qaeda, the Afghan Taliban, Lashkar-i-Taiba, Jaish-i-Mohammed, and a slew of other militant groups operating along the Af-Pak line and in Kashmir. It organized Sipah-i-Sahaba to intimidate and kill Shia and Christians inside its country.

"Toxic Waste Bubble Gum" recalled for lead contamination

March 28th, 2011

By Rady Ananda

Believe it or not, there is actually a product on the market called "Toxic Waste Short Circuits Bubble Gum." How's that for subliminally mind-warping your children into thinking toxic waste is fun and tastes good, too! Ironically, the Pakistani product has been recalled for "elevated levels of lead," per the FDA. Only Lot #15070SC12, shipped between January 4 and March 18, 2011, is involved.

The candies look like spent uranium fuel pellets from a nuclear power plant. Isn't that cute? Forget that this nuclear waste is more dangerous than the nuclear reactor itself. Those fuel pellets are stored in rod assemblies that are submersed in cooling pools on top of nuclear reactors, as I detailed in a recent post.

Quoting physician and nuclear activist Dr Helen Caldicott:
