Danny Casolaro's medal

"Assange Trial Week 1: The Flaw at the Heart of the Prosecution Case" (Rees).

Tweet (Max Blumenthal):
"There it is. The US regime is neutralizing adversarial journalism by making an example of Assange."
"Your Man in the Public Gallery: Assange Hearing Day 9" (Murray). I hope the CIA isn't paying very much for James Lewis QC (corrected), as his skill level for his job is comically low, though, of course, as the fix is in, it doesn't matter.  Simply expressing fury and hectoring witnesses does not make for good cross examination.

Gosztola day six.

"The truth behind Netanyahu's admission that police killing was a cover-up" (Cook):
"The only reason the prime minister decided to break with Israel’s decades-old policy of dissembling to ensure its security services enjoy impunity over the deaths of Palestinians was to help himself out of a jam. It certainly was not because he cared about a glaring injustice, or about Abu al-Qiyan’s vilification and the family’s suffering - both of which he very much contributed to.

Netanyahu’s goal was not to clear Abu al-Qiyan’s name, but to tarnish the reputation of Israel’s police and prosecution service - and for all the wrong reasons. The police force and prosecutors involved in the killing of Abu al-Qiyan, and the cover-up of that crime, are the same police force and prosecution service that will be acting against Netanyahu in December, when his corruption trial begins in earnest.

Netanyahu faces a string of charges that he committed bribery, fraud and breach of trust. His political survival now depends on his ability to breathe life into a narrative that the Israeli police and legal system are themselves corrupt and waging an anti-democratic war to bring him down.  
This is the story he is trying to craft: if police and prosecutors could deceive even Israel’s prime minister for three years over the killing of an Israeli citizen, are they not also capable of deceiving the public by accusing Netanyahu himself of being corrupt?"
Well, as they say, duh!: "America’s War on Terror is the True Cause of Europe’s Refugee Crisis" (Cockburn).

"Democrats Go All-Out for Israel" (Giraldi).  Harris opened the wallets of a large number of ((('donors'))) who were sitting on the fence watching the 'good for the Jews' sweepstakes known as an Assholian Presidential election.
