Now MoJo throws Apple critic Mike Daisey under the bus in their expos of Walmart Chinese shadow factories

Mother Jones is next to discredit Playwright Mike Daisey for his dramatization of Apple's supply line abuses in China, right in the byline of Andy Kroll's piece on Walmart's shadow factory system in China, which they call their, haha, "fiction-free investigation". THEN THEY FALL FOR A GREEN INDUSTRY-STRENGTH CLEANER! MoJo asks: Are Walmart's Chinese Factories as Bad as Apple's? and never really answers. Instead it's a behind the greenwash expos, and what else is new. AND Kroll falls for a Walmart PR contractor who adversaries of sustainability hacks recognize as the archetypal intelligence fiend, the federal witness protection program hair club for men, biker, treehugger alias. This time in the persona of "Terry Foecke (pronounced FAKE-ee), a consultant spearheading Walmart's factory energy efficiency program in China. In a lobby full of Westerners, Foecke cut an unmistakable figurethickly bearded, 6-foot-3, with a broad belly and hip square-framed glasses. He was an unlikely Walmart ally: a soft-spoken, almost professorial progressive who quoted George Bernard Shaw and told me he spoke out against runaway consumerism at his Unitarian church back home in Minnesota." Um, yeah Andy. Fake-ee.

Germany, the US, and the Pakistani government team up to slaughter Uzbek refugees in Pakistan

'US strike' kills 27 in Pakistan There is absolutely no reason for this report to put US Strike in parentheses since it was a US Pentagon slaughter of the usual type, and it did occur under Barack Obama's direction. In this, the Pentagon has the total complicity of the Pakistani government, which allows US slaughter of refugees living inside its borders. The Uzbek victims are the latest scapegoats and human sacrifices for D.C.'s 'Global War on Terrorism', and are just 27 dead numbers as far as Barack Obama is concerned. Sacrifices to the God GWOT. 6487
