Here are three independent links that are worth a read, which I’ll collectively call “American Reality”. Some of these are a bit old, but are still interesting.
Iraq On The Record – this is “a searchable collection of 237 specific misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq made by the five Administration officials most responsible for providing public information and shaping public opinion on Iraq: President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, Secretary of State Powell, and National Security Advisor Rice.”. There is also a PDF file with examination of the statements.
“The Bubble of American Supremacy” – interesting article by George Soros.
“The whole surreal story” – blog entry of Chris Toshok (Evolution any much more developer) describing the search of his apartment by FBI and Secret Service. There are also scans of the search warrant and seizure receipt.
