Like his friend Glenn Greenwald, the man has guts:

I’ve developed a visceral and splenetic aversion to the major news networks. More or less, they consist of rogues and buffoons.

School is a great place to learn.

These so-called journalists just got an education in Liberty and common sense. These people are totally out-of-touch or totally in-the-fold of the neocons. Scahill is an A+ journalist; these others are not even on the same playing field. Thanks for posting this great story.

Still waiting for someone to publicly mention that MSNBC

is owned by weapons manufacturer, General Electric. Clearly, the business agenda for MSNBC is to sell war so that its parent company keeps making and increasing profits.

In addition, the MS in MSNBC stands for Microsoft.

Believe it!

GTFO! Hahaha ;)

The new Xbox One, with its always-listening, always-watching, always-on camera (aka Kinect) must be cause for celebration at the NSA.

And what old formula of deception MS used to push it through, although many are still not "buying it":

1. You want "A" and need the public's approval knowing they will not approve.

2. You also provide "B" which isn't what you really want yet know that it's something people will not approve of either or more so.

3. You wait for the outrage over "A & B"

4. You then take away "B" and say you listened to customer outrage

5. Attention taken away from "A" as people busy celebrate the removal of "B" which you didn't care for in the first place.

In this case "A" is the in-home surveillance, 3D body scanning, heart-rate-monitoring, emotion-calculating Kinect camera. "B" is game DRM locks that prevent gamers from selling their games or even lending them out for more than 24hrs or else your friend has to pay a "new game" fee.

After Sony, with its PS4 saw the outrage over MS, they presented the opposite strategy. No DRM, No used game restrictions, No camera. MS then removes "B" from its plans while the NSA-CAM remains and will be in homes THIS HOLIDAY SEASON watching your kids. Now imagine what the already-evident-access-to-Microsoft-servers will do to these in-home cameras. There will be people watching your children or you in your home and getting a 3D model of your body and its movement characteristics and other vital data. Game Console my a$$.

Beautiful analysis

The idea that the child molesters in power would be able to pick and choose - this sickens me.

Happy liberty day!

Thank you kindly, friend.

Happy Liberty Day to you as well, even though I'm Canadian but it's also my wife's birthday so I'm in celebration mode all the same :)

Pretty good...

But with all talk about al-Awlaki being droned without due process, he should've mentioned the 16 year old son killed in a separate strike.

Don't you love it?

People that make their living reading teleprompters and looking trendy don't fare well against people that make their living thinking and reporting the truth.

No wonder their numbers are dropping. I won't give the corporate media even a click anymore, I wait for youtube so as not to encourage them.

After all, the MSM is only good for entertainment, it certainly isn't NEWS.


my analysis is

there's a internal war going on between the cia and nsa.

the nsa is military
the cia is zionist.

these people play with many layers of velvet gloves.

what a takedown by Scahill

his last few words to Toure were great !!

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions

Yep - Wow!

That was a total takedown of Toure by Scahill! Start at the 8:06 mark of the video for those who just want to catch that part.

Hah yeah, what a burn!

Nice work Scahill!

Strange, this naive opinion of Obama

This guy obviously did a lot of good work, but I find it weird that he believes that Obama is some kind of good guy who is forced by his environment to do evil. Simply doesn't make sense to me.

If it looks, walks, smells and sounds like a dog, it probably is a dog. If a president does what the previous president does, why assume he is somehow so different deep inside? Is it even relevant?

i don't think

he quite said that. he has to be careful what he says about the prez or he wouldn't be given the time of day, and be written off as a crackpot. i thought he handled the nuances quite well.

ron paul never puts down the individual, but the system itself.

I like that guy alot:)

I hope he don't drive a Mercedes Benz!

He is brave.

He's not anti-establishment enough for the Hastings treatment

Scahill comes across as pro-war. When an investigative journalist of his calibur remains pro-war, he actually does the Neocons a favor. They'll accept a little nitpicking of their policies in return for his promulgating, with what is perceived as great objectivity, about the "need" to take on Al Qaeda.

Thanks OP, and those who

Thanks OP, and those who posted the recent greenwald live discussion with this guy introducing him, you've given me yet another person to look up :)


MSNBC is a death cult. Thank

MSNBC is a death cult. Thank God virtually no one watches them.

Scahill actually has me reading Rolling Stone

again after like....seriously picking up old copies from heaps when I was like....8? For some of you in rough, ballpark historical terms that's pretty much right after Edison's electric light bulbs.

That and other scraps of radical subversive literature that obviously poisoned my mind from a very early age and made me the bent, illiterate, desperate criminal I am today. LOLs as if.

Hey I'm grown up now and no longer need my mom. I had selling her for drugs in mind. She's a great mom and I'm sure you will be very happy with her if you need one. Will send pics, serious inquiries only.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most people who think sew actually rip.

I liked it.

Except when Scahill referred to Obama as "sincere."

Well, we are all about the

Well, we are all about the possibilities, however unlikely they may be when looking at the, hes actions betray a sincerity, but ill listen to, rock and hard place situation, if given undeniable proof.........which we'll never likely get, with the US's policy on transperancy.....essentially shooting themselves in the foot, the good ones aswell as the bad ones

Toure shut his mouth, finally...

I think I've seen this program all of 3 times and it's always toure yapping his beak, so that was nice to see. Thank you OP.
