Even John Boehner Thinks Donald Trumps Presidency Has Been Abysmal So Far http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2017/05/26/john-boehner-donald-trump_n_16820810.html?utm_hp_ref=politics …
THAT IS SOMETHING.
UNTIL YOU TAKE A MOMENT . . .
AND ASK YOURSELF . . .
WHY SHOULD I GIVE A DAMN WHAT JOHN BOEHNER THINKS?
WAS HE SOME LEGEND IN CONGRESS?
KNOWN FOR BEING SMART AND WISE AND CARING?
NO AND NO AND NO.
HE WAS KNOWN FOR HAVING A NAME SOME PEOPLE PRONOUNCED AS "BONE-ER" AND FOR BEING A CORPORATE STOOGE.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
BBC NEWS reports:
Iraq has opened an inquiry into claims that its forces abused and killed civilians in the battle for Mosul against so-called Islamic State (IS).An interior ministry statement said it would take legal measures against anyone proven to have been "negligent".
It comes after Der Spiegel published an article by a photojournalist who was embedded with the ministry's troops.
Ali Arkady says he took pictures of detainees suspended from ceilings and that others were tortured and raped.
Wait, wait! Abuses? And it wasn't reported by Rukmini Callimachi?
Of course, it wasn't reported by her. She's THE NEW YORK TIMES' new Judith Miller -- as we pointed out February 10th.
Rukmini is very popular with Glenn Greenwald but then so was the Iraq War once upon a time.
Rukmini poured propaganda out her blow hole and the usual saps lapped it up like it was 2002 all over again.
Rukmini Callimachi fans should be suspect.
Especially if, like Glenn Greenwald, they got it wrong in real time (he supported the Iraq War).
There's a barrier between those people and critical thought.
Iraq's interior minister on Wednesday ordered an investigation into allegations that members of the security forces had tortured, killed and abused civilians in the campaign to oust Islamic State militants from Mosul.
The inquiry was in response to a report by the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel last week that included images of apparent torture taken by a freelance photographer embedded with the Interior Ministry's elite Emergency Response Division (ERD).
Photographs showed detainees accused of affiliation with Islamic State hanging from the ceiling with their arms bent behind them, and the journalist wrote of prisoners being tortured to death, raped and stabbed with knives.
Rukmini was too busy socializing to get the job done. But, hey, she got a lot of free meals, didn't she?
