@CIA #Torture? For the #Arab World, That's No Surprise - CommonDreams.org

The headlines scream of shock and revulsion. Described in UK newspapers as a "stain on America" and "the shaming of the West", and in the US as a "grim portrait" and "litany of brutality", the damning Senate report on CIA torture has, not surprisingly, evoked horror across the world's media. Few cannot be shocked by the nightmarishly grotesque details of how the CIA tortured, and how often it lied about it. And who knows how much more is contained in the bulk of the just-released, 6,000-page doc

#Genève:Ex-ambassadeur condamné pr avoir exploité employée (300 $/mois, 18h/jour,1 jour congé)#esclavagemoderne

Nourrie, logée, A. était payée 300 dollars par mois. Ses horaires, selon le Ministère public? De 6 h à minuit la semaine et de 11 h à 15 h le samedi. A cause de ce tarif illégal, un ex-ambassadeur asiatique, détenteur d’une fortune d’un million de dollars, a été condamné mercredi par la justice pénale pour usure. «C’est une victoire historique», confirme Me Pierre Bayenet, avocat de l’employée exploitée. De guerre lasse, cette femme de ménage a quitté la Suisse il y a plusieurs années. Elle obtient gain de cause sur le plan pénal, dix ans après le dépôt de sa plainte. Et pour cause, le prévenu, qui a quitté ses fonctions il y a quelques années, a bénéficié jusqu’alors de l’immunité diplomatique. «Je n’ai pas imposé le salaire, a déclaré l’accusé devant le Tribunal de police. C’était un accord avec A. J’ai commis une erreur.»La plaignante est arrivée en Suisse en 2004. Son travail débute en se...

The Crazy #US ‘Group Think’ on #Russia - #ThinkTank - CommonDreams.org

Has anyone in Official Washington thought through the latest foreign policy “group think,” the plan to destabilize nuclear-armed Russia? All the “smart” people, including the New York Times editors, are rubbing their hands with glee over the financial crisis being imposed on Russia because of the Ukraine crisis, but no one, it seems, is looking down the road.
