"When there's a torture on your land, the country, the state has an obligation to investigate and if there's evidence, prosecute that person for torture. ... If your country isn't going to do it, the others have the right to do it themselves because torture is considered an international crime. "

– Michael Ratner, president emeritus, Center for Constitutional Rights and co-counsel in European legal cases attempting to hold former president George W. Bush and other former U.S. officials accountable for violations of international law

U.S. Defies UN Treaty Obligation to Prosecute Officials Who Authorized and Carried Out CIA Torture

torture

The Dec. 9 release of an executive summary of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s Torture Report set off a debate across the country on both the legality and morality of President Bush’s authorization to use abusive interrogation methods on post-9/11 U.S.-held detainees. The report provides a detailed account of the CIA’s detention and interrogation program using the agency’s own documents.  Story continues

Wall Street "Owns" Congress as Both Parties Vote to Reinstate Taxpayer-Funded Bank Bailouts

MP3 Interview with Isaiah Poole, editor of the Campaign for America's Future blog, OurFuture.org, conducted by Scott Harris

wallstreet

As the Christmas holiday congressional recess drew near, members of both major political parties worked to pass a federal 2015 budget, nicknamed the “Cromnibus,” for Continuing Resolution and OMNIBUS budget bill, in order to avoid a government shutdown. But unknown to many legislators and the public, an obscure but important provision was inserted into the bill just before the first round of voting began. The measure supported by President Obama, Republicans and Wall Street-friendly Democrats, weakens a key part of the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill that was passed by Congress in the wake of the 2008 economic meltdown.  Story continues

Activists are participating in rallies, visits to the offices of elected officials to urge them to oppose the project and non-violent civil disobedience actions where they’ll risk arrest.  Story continues
