Just a quick note to tell you how much I've enjoyed reading
newsletters. I just discovered your website today, but I've
your TV program for quite sometime now. Your editorials sum
nicely the feelings of utter disgust with which I observe events
in the Middle East...
I was an Arabic Linguist in the US Air Force for almost
was involved in all sorts of intelligence collection activities
Middle East, and spent a good amount of time writing intelligence

So your newsletter really hits the spot for me.
Keep it up!

You have the basis of a half dozen major Teach Ins when I look
that list of signers. Can you do it? War Resisters League has a
tiny staff which is overwhelmed with work and can't - but your
statement is what is needed. Thank God for it.

I have accidentally come across one of your comments on a

Your effort is great. It will save me hours of research,

Thanks to an e.mail from Michael Novick, I have been introduced
much needed articles on the middle east. Bravo!

Your messages are a valuable expression of the realities of the
east as I have observed them from Algeria and Saudi
Arabia. Keep up the good work.
