Elizabet Varen, Senator (D) Massachusetts, 16.12.2014.

"It’s not just social conditions like globalization and technological change that threaten the middle class. It’s an active conspiracy by the rich and powerful. The game is rigged. The proper response is not just policy-making; it’s indignation and combat."

Elizabet Varen, Senator (D) Massachusetts

"We believe that NATO membership is a matter of policy values. For us, the democratic acquis and achievements of individual and collective freedoms, the institutional order of NATO member states and the quality of life within them, is what determines the Center towards such an idea"

David Rothkop, from the Foreign Policy report "Coming Clean, With Bloodstained Hands", 9.12.2014.

"The United States committed torture. It did so repeatedly. It did so with callous indifference to the most basic of human rights and in violation of the U.S. Constitution and international law. Those responsible for the torture programs ignored repeated concerns expressed by trusted colleagues within their own ranks that they had gone too far and that their efforts were often ineffective in producing the intelligence that had been deemed so valuable that it had justified our departure from our national senses. Leaders within the intelligence community misrepresented the results of the program, the scope of the program, and the nature of the program."

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General, 1.12.2014.

"Ukraine, Georgia and other democracies can become NATO members in the future. There will be no formal or informal guarantees to Russia in that respect. (...) Ukraine decided some years ago to be a non-bloc nation. Then, I respected that. Now, I have seen that the new government is announcing that they will change that. If they do, I will of course respect that too."

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General
