On October 18, 2021
Colin Powell has died of COVID-19. One of the most unjustly lauded individuals in early twenty-first century America, an honest portrayal of Powell’s legacy turns out starkly negative. From his significant role in the cover up of the My Lai Massacre to his lies about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction, Powell holds a great […]

Last week, we had a very unfortunate comment thread when I mentioned that one of the bombers portrayed in The Battle of Algiers still lives. Too many commenters basically preferred colonialism to the

John McSame has died. Any decent obituary of John McCain has to be as much about the media fawning over him as about the man himself. This was a not a good man and yet no one was more lionized by the
