Glenn Greenwald is a Brave Soul (We must listen to him)

While of course the other nations he seeks to save from war are themselves FAR from perfect...yet the point is Glenn does rais undeniable questions about are priorities and over and over again we MUST ask as he does: How is going to war with yet another nation going to help the people of that nation -- Just WHAT is our track record of THAT?

Look for this one on February 13, 2012 in the archives:
US v Pakistan on Transparency and Accountability (this is a respected constitutional

You may want to keep checking Glenn's work day by day:

Greenwald has been boldly questioning much of the US mainstream media's blind furthering of war-mongering.

He's a force to reckon with even when he takes lots of time to read. Seems his commentators don't mind the length. I'm surprised The New York Times has published his books in the past and I wonder if they will in the future?

I'm not sure I agree with his take on Ron Paul although he does give lots of facts, food for thought and his own qualifiers here.

Among his comments -- which are getting bolder and bolder -- a kind of "righteous anger" -- he said most recently about media revving up anti-Iran rhetoric -- rather mindlessly:

"It’s the sort of thing you would produce if you set out to create a mean-spirited parody of mindless, war-hungry, fear-mongering media stars, but you wouldn’t dare go this far because you’d want the parody to have a feel of realism to it, and this would be way too extreme to be believable."

One example of his recent questioning of the media here
