Jul 03, 2002 Freedom of Information Under Attack

Nov 26, 2001 Kangaroo Courts

QUOTE: The U.C.M.J. demands a public trial, proof beyond reasonable doubt, an accused's voice in the selection of juries and right to choose counsel, unanimity in death sentencing and above all appellate review by civilians confirmed by the Senate.

Nov 07, 2001 Politics and Curriculum: How History is Taught

QUOTE: The interplay of politics and curriculum is the subject of "Censoring History" (M. E. Sharpe, 2000), edited by Laura Hein and Mark Selden.

New York Times
Sep 12, 2001 The War with Jihadistan

QUOTE: ...a force that despises all notions save its own, and is prepared to kill and destroy for the sake of killing and destroying. In this sense, Jihadistan has far less to do with Islam than with nihilism.

Washington Times
