The more things change... The latest WikiLeaks dump exposes the gulag at Guantanamo Bay.

The prison at Guantanamo Bay is a lingering blight of Bush's -- and now Obama's -- War on Terror. The latest WikiLeaks dump exposes the flimsy evidence on which some people are still being held, and the apparent indifference with which others were released. And once again, the documents confirm that torture is an accepted instrument of U.S. foreign policy. Abe and Joe sift through the leaks and ponder whether the Bill of Rights will ever again be in vogue.

Physicist and activist Vandana Shiva discusses "War on Earth"

Vandana Shiva  - War on the Earth  (interview)

Citizens are told by their political masters and the corporados who pay them that there is no alternative. That’s true if one’s only concern is profits. That approach is fast turning our planet into a toxic waste dump. The landscape of environmental devastation extends from radiation leaks in Japan to drilling in the Alberta tar sands to hydofracking in Pennsylvania and New York to leveling mountains in West Virginia to more drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. However in India, the site of some of the worst corporate abuses, there is tremendous popular resistance.
