CIA droning on

John Brennan drone killingThe CIA has continued its mantra of defending military drones and torture.

Nominee CIA director John Brennan has come under attack for continuing the long line of government supporters for both drone strikes and torture, citing them both as necessary.

He claimed that the US was careful to minimise civilians casualties, he said:
“We only take such actions as a last resort to save lives when there’s no other alternative to taking an action that’s going to mitigate that threat.”

His rhetoric will be popular among the governments of warmongering nations but will bring wide-spread condemnation among the civilised people of the world.

US; Standard & Poor

US S&P flagStandard & Poor’s (the credit rating agency not the US) are to be sued by the US government over their 2007 assessment of mortgage bonds.
