Other Investigative Stories



In Case You Missed These Stories

February 11, 2008

Editor’s Note: One shortcoming in our effort to publish more and more articles is that some special stories fly by without getting the attention they deserve. So, periodically, we’ll publish this “in case you missed it” feature with links to stories that we feel fall into this category.

Reagan’s Bargain/Charlie Wilson’s War” by former CIA analyst Peter W. Dickson, describing how the Reagan administration turned a blind eye toward Pakistan’s development of a nuclear bomb in exchange for helping Islamic fundamentalists wage a jihad against Soviet forces in Afghanistan.

Obama’s Dubious Praise for Reagan” by Robert Parry, who covered the Reagan administration for the Associated Press and Newsweek. This article contrasts Obama’s favorable comments about Ronald Reagan as an agent for accountability against the Republican icon’s real record.

(Also, see Parry’s “The Clinton Audacity,” which looks at similar behavior from Hillary and Bill Clinton, and “Where Would Obama Take the Nation?”)

Pakistan’s Bomb, U.S. Cover-up” by Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, who criticizes the U.S. news media for ignoring allegations from former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds.

Tet Plus 40: US-Vietnam Turning Point” by former ABC war correspondent Don North, who covered the Tet assault on the U.S. Embassy in Saigon in 1968 and has continued piecing together the full story over the past four decades, including accounts from the Vietcong side.

Iniquities of War, Inequities of Life” by former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, who describes how his bout with cancer has influenced his view of the grotesque injustice of war and the more mundane injustice of American medical care.

To produce these high-quality stories – and many more – costs money. And except for book sales, we depend solely on the support of our readers.

So, please consider a tax-deductible donation either by credit card online or by mailing a check. (For readers wanting to use PayPal, you can address contributions to our account, which is named "[email protected].").

For a donation of $100, we will send you a gift, autographed copy of Neck Deep in paperback (or another book by Robert Parry, either Lost History or Secrecy & Privilege – just ask for the substitution).

For a donation of $150 or more, we will send the hard cover of Neck Deep.

Thanks for your support.
