Honduras suspends civil liberties as ousted President calls for resistance

StatismWatch can’t cover a lot of South American issues in-depth (sorry), but it’s worth noting here that Manuel Zelaya, the democratically elected Honduran leader, was arrested in his bed by the new military junta and deported some months ago. (Exhaustive detail may be found at Democracy Now! ) As Greg Grandin, professor of Latin American history at NYU puts it, “The Honduran military is effectively a subsidiary of the United States government.

AEI Interns’ Transcripts in Date Order: Their Own First Draft of History

First of all, I want to reemphasize everything Laurie just said. This is not a new threat, and this is not a threat we did not know about. Saddam Hussein has, in many ways, openly dreamed of mass death in the United States. He has shared his dreams with his nation and the world many times. We also know he has actively planned to do so many times, and Laurie’s book is a rather convincing argument that he is active and successfully implemented plans to do so as well. [more...]

Numerous provisions of that Act signed into law by the SOB (Son Of a Bush) were and remain egregious.
