11 Mar 2006
One of the most important lessons of the Joann Little case that is applicable now is that extending working class solidarity to the most oppressed is not an act of charity but holds the key to building an effective fightback movement to liberate our entire class from all forms of bigotry and exploitation by the bosses.

USA: Capitalism Threatens Us All
11 Mar 2006
The stakes are higher than ever. It's becoming increasingly clear to millions of workers that even in the "best of times", capitalism simply doesn't work anymore. The corruption, greed, and mismanagement of the system has reached unheard of proportions.

US drumbeat against Iran threatens new war of aggression
11 Mar 2006
With the US war and occupation in Iraq fast approaching its third anniversary, those in the Bush administration responsible for launching this unprovoked aggression based on lies about weapons of mass destruction and through intimidating the American people with fabricated threats of terror are once again beating the same war drums, this time against Iran.
Washington has succeeded in having charges over Iran’s nuclear program referred to the United Nations Security Council, where a response is to be debated beginning next week.

Libby WILL WALK in CIA Leak: Boston's Brewster-Jennings Employees Went Public
11 Mar 2006

A federal judge today ordered that Libby's lawyers be provided with summaries of Presidential Daily Briefings, but that will never happen. The CIA will object and Bush will cite "executive privilege."

(2) Libby never should have been indicted for leaking former CIA officer Valerie Plame's name, because her so-called cover company, Brewster-Jennings Associates (BJA) in Boston, was not undercover. Former employees like Jean C. Edwards and Robert Lawrence Ellmann even advertise their associations with the company on the Internet! They were doing so before Brewster-Jennings and Valerie Plame came to light and they still are.
