Palast--one of the few uncompromised and uncompromising investigative journalists who has to 'work in exile' to get to the truth.
For all the efforts of decent Washpo and NYTimes reporters. they are still constrained by corporate needs. Thanks for reminding me to keep paying attention.

The article is so revealing of the nature of the new american century.
Communities to be created on the basis of colour, politics or wealth?
Palast chips away another layer of lies.
