After US Strikes, Afghans Describe
"Tractor Trailers Full of Pieces of Human Bodies"
By Jeremy Scahill
As rage spreads in Afghanistan after US bombing that killed up to 130
people, unnamed Pentagon officials are spinning another cover-up. Defiant
Obama moves ahead with troop increase.

Obama Aide Puts Israel's Nukes in the Diplomatic Mix
Analysis by Helena Cobban
That would end a 40-year period in which Washington colluded with Israel in
maintaining the fiction that Israel's nuclear weapons capabilities were
unknown, and anyway should never be openly discussed.

Past Masters at Torture
By Iftekhar A. Khan
American propensity for using innocuous acronyms to cover heinous crimes is
unsurpassed. Bagram (Afghanistan) torture centre renamed Bagram Theatre
Internment Facility (BTIF) reportedly is to extend by investing $60 million.
So torture as US state policy will continue and BTIF will be the ultimate
hellhole.

Complicity -- and Accountability -- on Torture
By Dan Froomkin
There is anger from the left - and not just the left - about an inexcusable
Bush policy. There are demons in the closet, and shutting the door on them
won't make them go away. Better to deal with it now, when a new president's
idealism is still fresh. It will take idealism to face the torture issue.

Depressionus Interruptus
Did Bernanke pull the economy back from the brink?
By Mike Whitney
The stock market surge doesn't help working people who get paid by the hour
and don't have the extra money to bet on equities. They can't move numbers
from one ledger to another and magically show a profit. They have to balance
their check books, show up on time, and play by the rules. For these
people--the bulk of working Americans--the future has never been grimmer and
less certain.

Populism is Not a Style
It's a People's Rebellion Against Corporate Power
By Jim Hightower
A majority of folks today hold within them the live spark of populism--which
is an innate distrust of corporate tycoons and Wall Street titans and an
instinct to rebel against them. The moment can come again. As Goodwyn tells
us, "the triumph of Populism...was the belief in possibility it injected
into American political consciousness."
