Can we be proud of who we are and still be good people?

"Satoshi Nakamoto is (probably) Nick Szabo".  "The Latest Theory Is That The Creator Of Bitcoin Is A Blogger"  If Satoshi Nakamoto is behind Silk Road, and Silk Road is still around, and the United States is seriously fighting the 'war on drugs', should we expect the American government to be harassing Nick Szabo, and if not, why not?

"Sunday, December 01, 2013"  "Glenn Greenwald Responds to Critics as Attacks Continue"  I would have thought that Greenwald would have been wise to ignore Ames, as all he is doing is giving publicity to Ames' valid points.  Given the Paypal attack on Wikileaks, of all the six or seven billion people on the planet Pierre Omidyar is the worst person for Greenwald to be partnering up with.  There will be no serious reform of the spying, and that it all the proof I need that Greenwald's 'brilliant' leaking strategy is just intended to maximize the profits to investors.  Of course, Greenwald could end all controversy by doing a mass dump of the Snowden material.

"Gilad Atzmon on Ken O’Keefe’s Middle East Show"  In case you've forgotten what real progressive politics looks like.  Can we be proud of who we are and still be good people?

"Eric Alterman’s ‘I Hate Max Blumenthal’ Handbook"  This lite-Zionist jello wrestling match is as sad and sloppy as you might imagine.  Alterman is getting quite close to a public nervous breakdown.  Note that Blumenthal's big point - that there are some astonishingly racist Jews in Israel - is very uninteresting and does no harm to Zionism.

"CIA Official Tied to JFK Assassination" by Jim Lesar.  Important stuff is still coming out about the JFK assassination (and all we get on September 11 is more nonsense).  "JFK Files: Some Documents From Probe Of Kennedy's Death Still Sealed Five Decades Later"

"Thomas Friedman has a big mouth"

"CIA Officer George L Purvis"  Correction.

"Warning Signs of Covert Eavesdropping or Bugging"
