I have heard of Robert McNamara’s death only on LRC and Amy Goodman’s “Democracy Now.” The mainstream media remains worked up over Michael Jackson’s funeral arrangements and other diversions.

If the prosecution of war criminals by the United States was ever taken seriously, McNamara would have been one of the leading candidates for the gallows. Instead, as we have been informed, the man died peacefully in his sleep, further evidence that, indeed, there is no justice in our world.
