  •  Glenn Greenwald confess his major political error (8+ / 0-)

    was to assume that given what the Democrats said about civil liberties during Bush years, they would be unable to support Bush policies when Obama got elected. Their minds would be unable to bridge the contradiction between what they professed in the past to now support when Obama continued the policies.

    Glenn confessed his error.

    Glenn has chronicled Obama's enhanced policy actions along with enhanced warrior actions.

    Chris Hedges uses the term "corporate coup d'etat" to describe what has happened and the need for civil disobedience to stand up to the power structure.

    We must get beyond the he said, she said political dialogue, i.e., beyond the political parties and their media enablers, to get our country back.

    •  Some of Greenwald's latest (6+ / 0-)
      After years of being mocked by the Right as Terrorist-coddling weaklings, Obama — strutting around touting his own strength — lets them feel strong and powerful in exactly the way that Bush and Cheney’s swaggering let conservatives prance around as tough-guy, play-acting warriors. Rather than ignore this aggression, Democratic think tanks point with beaming pride to the corpses piled up by the Democratic Commander-in-Chief to argue that he’s been such a resounding foreign policy “success,” while Democratic pundits celebrate and defend the political value of his majestic kills.

      My book, TRAITOR: THE WHISTLEBLOWER & THE "AMERICAN TALIBAN," is Amazon's #1 Best Seller in Human Rights Books for February 2012.
