Trump Secretary of State Pick Compares Muslim Brotherhood to Al-Qaeda 12.1.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Rex Tillerson, chief executive of Exxon Mobil and President-elect Trump's choice for secretary of state, testifies at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Capitol Hill, in Washington, on January 11, 2017. (Photo: Doug Mills / The New York Times) Donald Trump's pick for Secretary of State hit out at the Muslim Brotherhood in the opening statement that he delivered on Wednesday to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. At the onset of his confirmation hearing, Rex Tillerson called the group "an agent for radical Islam like al-Qaeda…and certain elements within Iran." The assessment raises the possibility that the Trump administration will not eschew the sort of Islamophobia and authoritarianism that Trump himself promoted during the presidential campaign. Republican advisers and lawmakers have, in recent years, pushed bizarre theories about the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, calling, at times, for crackdowns on the organization, modeled after dictatorial governments ...

Give John Walker Lindh, the "American Taliban," a Chance to Tell His Story 5.1.2017 Truthout.com
John Walker Lindh's ordeal is instructive for what it says about the US government's conduct of the war on terror. It tells us a lot about how a US citizen can be treated by the US military forces and US legal system after being captured in a war zone. (Photo: Erika Wittlieb ; Edited: LW / TO) In November 2001, 20-year-old John Walker Lindh was captured by Northern Alliance forces in Afghanistan and imprisoned at the Qala-i-Jangi fortress. Once identified as an American, Lindh was transferred to US military forces and subjected to harsh interrogation (in his initial statements, he claimed he was tortured). He was then successfully prosecuted by his own government on two criminal counts, resulting in a 20-year federal prison sentence. The road to that prison cell was fraught with misadventure. The young man grew up in Northern California, converted to Islam in his teens, made a brief trip to Yemen and then joined the Taliban forces. In Afghanistan, he hoped to end the atrocities Northern Alliance soldiers ...
