RAINER SHEA—Fly and the other power players within the empire are attempting to influence world events by controlling the flow of information. It’s crucial to them that the Western public view the current geopolitical developments through the American-centric, pro-imperialist lens through which the government presents current events.

PATRICK LAWRENCE—Preposterous, readers. Join me, please, in having absolutely none of it. There is no “Russian actor” at the bottom of this swamp, to put my position bluntly. You will never, ever be offered persuasive evidence otherwise. Reluctantly, I credit the Clinton campaign and the DNC with reading American paranoia well enough such that they may make this junk stick. In a clear sign the entire crowd-control machine is up and running, The New York Times had a long, unprofessional piece about Russian culprits in its Monday editions. It followed Mook’s lead faithfully: not one properly supported fact, not one identified “expert,” and more conditional verbs than you’ve had hot dinners — everything cast as “could,” “might,” “appears,” “would,” “seems,” “may.” Nothing, once again, as to the very serious implications of this affair for the American political process.

PATRICE GREANVILLE—Readers may be forgiven for chuckling at our headline. Yes, it has become news, in the tradition of that old standard, “Man bites dog,” when a major newspaper in the US discharges its journalistic function with probity and professionalism. Especially in regard to the nasty developments in the Middle East, where any day now we may be faced with the stuff of nightmares.

PHILIP A. FARRUGGIO—Fast forward 40 years and one still has to sit through the nonsense when viewing mainstream news shows OR the Congress on -Span. Stooge time is once again the choice of the masses. First and foremost you have the millionaire and mega millionaire ( so called ) journalists who push across the news only fit for an empire. Most of what they shovel your way is Republican VS. Democrat food fights, never on the most important issues we working stiffs should be concerned with. No mention of this obscene militarism and military spending ( over 50% of our federal taxes ) that bankrupts our economy. No mention of the need for real National Health Care for ALL without the predatory private insurers being involved.

PATRICK COCKBURN—Jeremy Corbyn is correct to say that the affair is all about “the extradition of Julian Assange to the US for exposing evidence of atrocities in Iraq and Afghanistan.” But, within hours of Assange’s detention, it was clear that nobody much cared about innocent people dying in the streets of Baghdad or in the villages of Afghanistan and Assange has already become a political weapon in the poisonous political confrontation over Brexit with Corbyn’s support for Assange enabling Conservatives to claim that he is a security risk.Lost in this dog-fight is what Assange and WikiLeaks really achieved and why it was of great importance in establishing the truth about wars being fought on our behalf in which hundreds of thousands of people have been killed.
