"This entire war with ISIS has been marked by a very slippery slope. ... Every time there is an incremental or a meaningful leap in the scope (of a war), it's usually completely glossed over by the media, and before we know it, we're engaged in a much broader campaign than what was originally sold to us."

– Journalist Adam Johnson on the corporate media's failure to report on America's deepening intervention in Syria's civil war

The raid, which killed the man identified as Abu Sayyaf, purportedly an ISIS military planner and director of the group's "illicit oil, gas and financial operations," also captured his wife and an 18-year-old female Yazidi "slave."  Story continues

MP3 Interview with Rebecca Craven, program director with Pipeline Safety Trust, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

Pipeline company Enbridge was responsible for the 2010 spill of diluted tar sands bitumen into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River that has thus far cost more than one billion dollars to clean up, although the job isn’t yet finished. Now the company wants to double the amount of tar sands bitumen it sends through its existing pipeline #61 across Wisconsin so that it would carry 1.2 million barrels of the highly polluting fossil fuel a day – more than the proposed capacity of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.  Story continues

Years of scientific research has found that a widely used type of insecticide poses a threat on par with that of DDT, endangering the world’s ecosystems. An analysis based on 800 peer-reviewed reports released last year, titled the “Worldwide Integrated Assessment of the Impact of Systemic Pesticides on Biodiversity and Ecosystems,” focuses on the harmful effects of neonicotinoids to bees and other pollinators — as well as terrestrial invertebrates like earthworms.  Story continues
