The sufferings of the communities hit by Typhoon Haiyan are also true in countless other places around the world.

Who is a Chickenshit? Senior White House Officials say Netanyahu, That`s Who!

Is this the straw that broke the camel’s back?

(LONDON) - Netanyahu By Carlos Latuff It seems, at last, that the intransigence, arrogance, disrespect and disdain that Mr. Netanyahu and most of his cabinet colleagues have shown towards their benefactors in the USA have proved to be too much to bear for the Obama Administration, including Mr. Obama himself.

Senior officials have called Mr. Netanyahu ‘a chickenshit prime minister’, ‘a coward’ and ‘a man more interested in his own political survival than peace.’

The chameleon came dressed in the colours of the United States of America. After all, he was speaking in New York and he employed local American idioms and colloquialisms to deliver what was without doubt a brilliant exhibition of showmanship in full Technicolor. All that was missing were the violins.

John Yoo and The Senate Torture Report

John Choon Yoo, aka John Yoo, authored the Torture Memos used to justify torture of human beings by the Bush Administration.

(SAN FRANCISCO) - John Yoo caricature Professor John Yoo stepped away from his lectern at the UC Berkeley School of Law to send an e-mail to the San Francisco Chronicle criticizing the forthcoming Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) torture report saying that if "torture was used and it didn't work, she [Senator Dianne Feinstein] is flat wrong." Yoo claimed the report failed to maintain "bipartisanship" that "will undermine its conclusions."

I suspect that this is a preemptive attack by Yoo as the release of the Senate torture report will probably place Yoo on the hotseat again. The SSCI Torture report has been approved for public release. However, the SSCI and the CIA are fighting over the CIA's substantial redactions to the torture report summary.
