LINKS OF THE WEEK for 25 JAN 2009

a) Evidence mounts on the Israeli military’s use of white phosphorous in its war on Gaza, with devastating effects on civilians, and the government finally admits it. Action is taken by the state to protect Israeli soldiers from future war crimes prosecutions

b) Brilliant imagery: French fake news show Les Guignols de l’Info contrasts American foreign policy under George W. Bush with the future foreign policy of Barack Obama.

 

c) Despite Obama’s order to close Gitmo, Bagram’s prison is expanding and others will remain open, angering human rights groups; Obama’s first civilian kills on the Afghanistan/Pakistan border.

d) Military-industrial-media complex update; Obama and the media a mix of old and new, open and closed; Facebook as news media.
