Another great piece.

" Surely the biannual report merits at least as much coverage as Hunter Biden’s conviction, which seems to have consumed the entire news cycle today. "

If news organizations like the Washington Post want to understand why they have lost half their audience, maybe they should compare their reporting now to what was when Bill Arkin was working on the Top Secret America series there.

They really do a good job of creating conditions for the political apathy/ignorance. The more you learn it becomes more shocking. Makes change extremely hard. And that’s the point.

Good job Ken!

Why is the media covering for this administration?

Why do we still have American hostages?

Why are we so focused on other countries but not home?

Great piece!! Mentioning the background of the legislation is fantastic, I would be disheartened, disillusioned, and terribly disappointed if Congress were to vote on this issue today. We seem to be focused on the grandstanding of current and future trials, pronouns, and how we can Baconize (6 steps to Kevin Bacon) Putin to every action of denial by this Administration instead of finding a way to make us whole.

Israel and the Kennedy Assassinations – note the BIPARTISAN War party 60+ year silence

Jack Ruby, who killed Lee Harvey Oswald, was Jewish. His birth name was Jacob Leon Rubenstein, and he was born to Polish Jewish immigrants.

JFK pushed to halt Israel's acquisition of nuclear weapons.

RFK tried to designate a precursor to AIPAC as a foreign agent. He was “killed” by drugged/hypnotized Palestinian.

Why has Israel been avoided when discussing the Kennedy assassinations?

Same deal with 9/11. I find it hard to believe that the "dancing Israelis" (which in popular lore became "dancing Arabs" or "dancing Muslims") were there to video and celebrate the action by mere coincidence. https://www.mintpressnews.com/tag/dancing-israelis/

There must be an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. Pope Francis has said what is needed, now he must do what is needed by going to Gaza and standing for peace, justice and freedom.
