JBS CEO Art Thompson's weekly news video update for January 28 - February 3, 2013.
Summary executions and mass human rights abuses targeting innocent civilians in Mali are being perpetrated by soldiers loyal to the dubious Malian regime in a campaign supported by the United Nations, the new socialist French government, and the Obama administration. According to human rights groups and witnesses on the ground, the atrocities are increasing as the number of murdered victims continues to rise — eerily reminiscent of similar tragic interventions in Libya, Syria, and the Ivory Coast.
In testimony before Senate and House committees, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton enthusiastically endorsed increased U.S. intervention in Africa. When government officials seem incapable of learning obvious lessons from the recent past, maybe their incentive is not to learn but to keep doing the same destructive things.

Iranian-American pastor Saeed Abedini, who grew up in Iran and was training to be a suicide bomber before becoming a Christian and moving to the United States, has been imprisoned in Iran for the past several months and is set to face a religious judge there who has a record of sending people to the gallows.
