Segment 1: The Obama Apology for U.S. Bombing of Doctors Without Borders Hospital – a ‘Noble Lie’?


President Obama has personally apologized to Doctors Without Borders

for the U.S. airstrike that struck its hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan,

killing 12 staff members and 10 patients, including three children, on

Saturday.

independent investigation into what it has called a possible war crime.

corporate personhood is bad news, the TPP seeks to strengthen the legal
