Hawkish Senators Want War on Iran

Hawkish Senators Want War on Iran by Stephen Lendman Permanent war is official US policy. Bipartisan complicity supports it.

It does it at home... Continue Reading →

Thaw in Israeli Immunity?

Thaw in Israeli Immunity? by Stephen Lendman Hope springs eternal. Palestinians waited so long. Don't expect too much too soon. Anything is better than nothing.

Supreme Court Authorizes Lawless Wiretapping

Supreme Court Authorizes Lawless Wiretapping by Stephen Lendman America's Supremes are notoriously hard right. Equal justice under law is just a figure of speech.

They include Chief Justice... Continue Reading →

America’s Draconian Computer Fraud and Abuse Act

America's Draconian Computer Fraud and Abuse Act by Stephen Lendman It's an anti-hacking law. It criminalizes accessing computer systems "without authorization."  "(E)xceeds authorized access" terminology was left undefined. Misinterpretations and abuse followed. Overzealous prosecutors take full advantage. In 1984, CFAA was enacted. It was amended numerous times. It's primarily a criminal law. At issue are... Continue Reading →
