U.S. Withdrawal Will Let Iraq Revive Its Own Constitution  

by Muriel Mirak-Weissbach

Lyndon LaRouche called for the restoration of Iraq’s own Constitution, “forged in struggle against oppression, and in the search for unity of common interest among the communities of which that fighting nation was composed.” It is the Constitution of 1958, establishing the republic, which corresponds to LaRouche’s characterization. This document was the result of what LaRouche described as Iraq’s “popular struggle against repeated British imperial occupation,” and contained “an affirmation of universal principles of natural law.”

The Purloined Life of Edgar Allan Poe  

by Jeffrey Steinberg

A lecture by Jeffrey Steinberg to members of the LaRouche Youth Movement. “My hypothesis is that Poe was one of the leading American republican counterintelligence officers, and that he was working for the Cincinnatus Society military intelligence circles. He was sent to Europe in the early 1830s as part of a trans-Atlantic campaign by the Society to make republican revolutions in France and Poland, and elsewhere, if possible. And his ‘literary career’ here in the United States was dominated by the kind of intelligence warfare, cultural warfare, that was an absolutely crucial part of the fight for the survival of the United States, and the spread of the American System around the world.”
