      Published by Tom Hayden, The Peace Exchange Bulletin is a reader-supported journal, critically following the Pentagon's Long War in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq, as well as the failed U.S. wars on drugs and gangs, and U.S. military responses to nationalism and poverty around the world.

      Correa Against CIA, Death Squads and Oligarchy

      It is no exaggeration to say that the CIA, in league with death squads, has been involved in Ecuador since the infamous torture and assassination program known as “Condor” in the 1970s.

      Assange Seeks Asylum in Ecuador

      In what might escalate into a major setback for the US government, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has taken refuge in the Ecuadoran embassy in London and is seeking political asylum in that Latin American country. Relations between the US and most Latin American countries – and many others around the world – are sure to be aggravated if the White House reacts negatively or tries to block an Ecuadoran asylum decision. It seems inconceivable that Ecuador will simply turn Assange over to the US or UK authorities, setting the stage for a showdown with global repercussions.

      Obama Embraces the Dreamers

      Like the student sit-ins and Freedom Rides of 1960-61, wave after wave of immigrant students succeeded Friday in persuading an African American president, born during the high tide of those earlier student movements, to recognize their quest for dreams instead of deportations.

      The Official Responsibility for Soldier Suicides

      In 2009 it was first reported that more American soldiers were committing suicide than civilians for the first time in decades. In February 2010, the Peace and Justice Resource Center reported that suicides among American troops had reached 1,000 at a rate greater than fatalities in either the Iraq or Afghanistan Wars. Once again this week, the Pentagon acknowledged an Associated Press report that suicides were at record levels, 18 per day, and an 18 percent increase in active-duty suicides over last year. Those should have been warnings enough.

      The LA-based City Project, led by civil rights attorney Robert Garcia, is making national inroads in its efforts to confront racial disparities in public access to parks, services, healthy food and quality schools.

      Mexican Presidential Candidates Woo Student Movement, U.S. Official Says Drug War Will Continue Regardless of Outcome

      Mexican public opinion has turned sharply against the US–supported drug war, which has left over 50,000 dead, forcing Mexico’s presidential candidates to disavow the militarized approach in favor of less violent alternatives. US officials are deeply concerned at the prospect of ending or even slowing the drug war, and say privately that the leading candidate, Enrique Pena Nieto of PRI, does not mean his own sound bites.
