I can't, for the life of me, understand why more Democrats can't see through the Baker Report and notice that it calls for tens of thousands of U.S. personnel to remain there for the indefinite future. We, as peace activists, must demand withdrawal now.
I'd like to also draw your attention to a piercing piece of media criticism that my colleague Amitabh Pal has written. It's about the way The New York Times covers Venezuela, and it's called "The Times's Anti-Chávez Bias."
I hope you enjoy these three items.
