This afternoon on 'Here and Now', the always amenable Robin Young had, of all people, Richard Perle, to explain the escalation to us non-believers. Gee, he's never lied to anyone has he? I'm so sick of NPR's always going to the AEI well to gloss over a government misdeed. She never asked him if he personally profited from the Iraq war, or any other mischief; all of which made him a very wealthy man. She tried a wee bit of confrontation-lite, but it was a joke. No wonder the Philly station didn't meet its last fundraising drive, people are tired of this shit.
And for a different slant on the Somalia situation, in addition to the 'Democracy Now!' link posted below, Wayne Madsen has a more full expose of the religious conflicts involved. I don't recall hearing 'Jumpin' for Jesus Jerry Boykin being mentioned on NPR, but apparently he's still meddling in Somalia.

I think H&N is affiliated with another group, Amercian Public Media, or some such (not worth cranking up the google), not NPR. Perhaps we need a subset of the other public radio outlets.

I loved the Nero Phiddles Radio!
