Reading Time: < 1 minute Russ talks Libya with KGO-San Francisco radio host Peter B. Collins
Reading Time: 18 minutes Forget the “humanitarian crisis” that justified the NATO bombing that helped destroy Qaddafi’s regime. It was always about oil and other strategic issues. And the rebels were a wholly owned subsidiary of West, Inc. Here’s the evidence.

Reading Time: 6 minutes While the eyes of the US and the world were on Anthony’s wiener, a second salacious story, with far greater potential consequences, began making the rounds. It’s a doozy: Libyan madman Qaddafi ordering his troops to commit mass rape, and dispensing Viagra to ramp up the damage. Even the BBC is rushing into this one. But is it true?

Reading Time: 4 minutes Why would one of Israel’s most powerful firms be helping out Iran? Why don’t we hear more about the grip on Israel’s economy and political system of a handful of firms? And why don’t we hear more, in general, about private companies’ behind-the-scenes influence in the world’s democracies?
