The PNAC Legacy of Belligerent “Diplomacy”

http://dissidentvoice.org/2014/08/the-pnac-legacy-of-belligerent-diplomacy/

In early January 1998, aware of the soon-to-break story about the Clinton/Lewinsky trysts, the Project for a New American Century saw its “window of opportunism.” On January 16—the day before the story appeared in the press—PNAC publicized their “open letter” to President Clinton urging him to consider military action against the Iraq regime of Saddam Hussein, who was again alleged to be evading UN inspections and stockpiling tons of lethal WMDs. By early February, Clinton, desperate to divert attention from his pathetic scandal, gave a speech to the nation enumerating in considerable detail the danger posed by these alleged stockpiles (sarin, anthrax, etc.).

The neoconservative PNAC (1997-2006) had been co-founded by Robert Kagan of the Brookings Institution (yes, regrettably, such maniacal types do indeed belong in an “institution”). Bruce Jackson, highly politically-connected VP of Lockheed, was a PNAC project director. (He would later write the 2000 “foreign policy” platform of the Republican Party). Those who signed on to its founding included the now-infamous MIC promoters Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz...

Australia: Fossil fuels think tank urges privatisation of ABC

http://asiancorrespondent.com/125735/australia-fossil-fuels-think-tank-urges-privatisation-of-abc/?#038;#038;

The proposed privatisation of the Australian Broadcasting Corp (ABC) could be an ultimate blow to Australia’s clean energy policies if it pushes through. The county’s fossil fuels think tank highly recommends the public broadcaster to be silenced by transferring its management to the private sector.

The Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) released a report this week saying that the ABC is bias against the fossil fuels industry and is leaning towards the left with favourable reporting on renewable energy. IPA commissioned iSentia in March to do an analysis based on ABC’s coverage of energy policy issues, including the coal-mining, coal-seam gas, and the renewable energy industries...

Inequality Is a Drag

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/08/opinion/paul-krugman-inequality-is-a-drag.html?_r=0

For more than three decades, almost everyone who matters in American politics has agreed that higher taxes on the rich and increased aid to the poor have hurt economic growth.

Liberals have generally viewed this as a trade-off worth making, arguing that it’s worth accepting some price in the form of lower G.D.P. to help fellow citizens in need. Conservatives, on the other hand, have advocated trickle-down economics, insisting that the best policy is to cut taxes on the rich, slash aid to the poor and count on a rising tide to raise all boats...

Flipping Schools: The Hidden Forces Behind New Jersey Education Reform

http://truth-out.org/news/item/25425-flipping-schools-the-hidden-forces-behind-new-jersey-education-reform

Half a year after Newark Public Schools launched an "agenda to ensure all students are in excellent schools," the plan has come under a federal civil rights investigation to determine whether it "discriminates against black students."

The investigation centers on a cluster of school closings in Newark's predominantly black South Ward. Absent a consistent reason why the district targeted these schools - such as poor academics or declining enrollment - activists alleged discrimination. The "One Newark" reform plan, they wrote, would "continue a pattern of shuttering public schools in communities of color."...

White House plan to help Syrian rebels stalls, and losses mount

http://thehill.com/policy/defense/214537-white-house-plan-to-help-syrian-rebels-stalls-and-losses-mount

The White House proposed a plan two months ago for the Pentagon to train and equip vetted Syrian rebel forces in that nation’s civil war. But since then, there’s been lots of talk and not much action.

Administration officials have agreed on the broad outline of a proposal, which would see several hundred U.S. troops train 2,300 to 2,500 vetted rebels outside of Syria over 18 months. The Syrians could then train more forces at home...
