Jenka Soderberg interviews a newly-arrived immigrant from Gaza on his life in the Gaza Strip, and the difficulty of getting out of the besieged Occupied Territory.  The Gaza Strip is one of the most crowded places on earth, where 1.5 million Palestinians - most of whom are 2nd and 3rd generation refugees from what is now Israel - live crowded together in extremely harsh and difficult conditions.  The borders have been sealed by Israeli and Egyptian authorities since June 2007, leading many Gazans to call the Strip "the largest open-air prison on earth."

Dubya, Hammer of God

May 18, 2009

Remember, back in those nightmare years surrounding the initial invasion and occupation of Iraq? Remember when we would speculate, half in jest, that Dubya was an unhinged, end-times, Book-of-Revelation, whackjob war leader? That he was, ha-ha, doing God's work in smiting the infidels? That he was, snort, paving the way for the Apocalypse?

All of it was true.

It seems that Donald Rumsfeld, in those early days during and after the invasion, would submit to the President a daily intelligence briefing called the Worldwide Intelligence Update. On each cover was emblazoned a full-color hymn to American martial virtue, complete with appropriately smite-tacular Biblical verse.

I kid you not. Bush was EVERY INCH the nutjob avenging Warrior of God we imagined him to be in our dark satiric daydreams.

These people need to go to jail.
