COHEN: Well, we think about 70,000, which is an extraordinary number. But then, an untold number of other people were just taken away, as Carrie Buck and her mother had been, and kept in colonies so that they couldn’t reproduce.

The Associated Press last week revealed new secret documents leaked from the NYPD that included the Arab American Association of New York on a TEI (Terrorism Enterprise Investigation) list.

Karl Popper, The Open Society and Its EnemiesI grew up in a small farming town in upstate New York where my life, and the life of my family, centered on the Presbyterian Church. I prayed and sang hymns every Sunday, went to Bible school, listened to my father preach the weekly sermon and attended seminary at Harvard Divinity School to be a preacher myself.

The utter disaster that occurred in Mogadishu just before the outbreak of genocide in Rwanda had left a sour taste in the mouths of Western governments. They were unwilling to invest their resources in a conflict zone in which they could not guarantee success and thus so too were the major media outlets.
