In a major but at this dispirited point less than shocking reversal, the Obama White House is set to announce that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, self-declared mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, will be tried at Guantanamo Bay, not in U.S. civilian court as they long claimed he would be. This, on the same day Obama launches his re-election campaign with a vague and gauzy ad showing regular people saying how we really have to work to elect him, because...uhh....just because. Sigh. Is this really the best we can do?

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
