Restore Justice to the Lawless World of Kissinger and Bush  

by Warren J. Hamerman

There’s a red thread through the Bush Administration’s Panama invasion and its refusal to release documents incriminating the Iran-Contra honchos and exonerating Lyndon LaRouche: total disdain for the U.S. Constitution and the principles on which it is based. Warren Hamerman reviews the case of the secret government’s “Get LaRouche” operations.

Corrections

There were two errors of identification in our Jan. 19 issue. On p. 26, Edgar Paul Boyko is the former Attorney General of the state of Alaska, and the program on which he made his remarks about the Dukakis campaign’s refusal to hear reports of an alleged Bush-narcotics connection, was aired over station KEAG in Alaska. He also has a law office in San Diego. On p. 41, Roman Rojas Cabot, a distinguished Venezuelan journalist, was mistakenly identified as a retired general. In our Jan. 12 issue, we omitted the byline of the article, “The hypocrisy of UNICEF.” The author is Linda C. Everett.
