He writes: “Those American soldiers torturing and sexually abusing Iraqi prisoners have made criminals of us all. And there are only two possible responses to this horrible outrage: get out of Iraq. Now! And imprison the man responsible, George W. Bush. Any fantasy that the United States could ‘bring democracy’ or inject stability or somehow do something praiseworthy for the Iraqi people irrevocably died with the publication of those photographs” … and: “As always, Bush takes no personal responsibility. His radio rodents like Rush Limbaugh say the photos were fake. That Bush couldn’t have known about any of this. That those reports circulating for weeks about widespread torture and abuse in the Iraqi prisons -not to mention an unknown number of apparent murders – could not have been seen by Bush, and therefore he was not responsible” … (full text).

In a victory for green power, a massive grassroots/internet campaign forced removal from the national Energy Bill of blank check loan guarantees to build atomic reactors.

And he writes: “Fox News and macho fools like Haley Barbour, the corrupt and inept Republican governor of Mississippi, will rant endlessly about a few looters and the shot that may or may not have been fired at rescue helicopters. We will see endless footage of the African- American family arrested for “stealing” a car so they could escape and live. But to hear of dead bodies being stacked outside a professional football stadium to avoid further stench where ten thousand Americans can’t get water, food or sanitary facilities.To see dazed elders who’ve just lost their homes or hospital rooms being laid on sidewalks to die. To watch crying children stretched out on the ground, separated from their parents, dehydrated, overheated, starving….this is too much to bear. How utterly can our nation have failed? How totally bankrupt can we be? As we mourn our most colorful city, the home of our truest American music, and of so much gorgeous history and culture.we are heartsick and disgraced. These global-warmed hurricanes will be coming again and again. And with this ghastly Bush crew, soul-killing scenes like these will define our nation.” (full text ‘Flood of Fools, Bush to New Orleans’, September 2, 2005).
