Back from Paradise

I’m back from the Cascades and Seattle and have spent most of the five days since my return to Washington getting caught up with my reading and office work. I hope to blog over the coming week on some of the events I missed, including the budding case for cross-border raids into Iran and the creation and funding of “Freedom Watch,” which appears to be primarily an initiative of the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC). More on that later.

  1. Welcome back Jim. I have been following your journalism for the past many years, and I have found it consistently superlative.

    Should you ever visit Scotland I’d be happy to take you on a trip to the breathtaking glens and lochs in the highlands.

  2. I wish you had stayed there and did not continue your blog. You are no expert on Iran, believe me. To think that you support a religious apartheid, a medieval clerical rule of very reactionary clerics, and then pose yourself as “progressive” and a humanist disgusts me.

    Let me repeat, you know NOTHING about Iran and you write absolute crap.
    As for what you call “important article” in Motherjones by Laura Rozen about Fakhravar, perhaps you should remove your one way focused glasses and read other things too, like the reply to Rozen:
