Profile: Washington Post


Positions that Washington Post has held:




Quote, January 17, 2003

   “It is highly unusual for the UN team to announce the results of an inspection. Since it began visiting sites in Iraq on Nov. 27, officials generally have released only bare-bones information about places they have searched, refraining from mentioning whether any substantive evidence was uncovered. Ueki said he was told to disclose the discovery by his superiors.” [Washington Post, 1/16/03]

Quote, February 6, 2003

   “After Secretary of State Colin L. Powell's presentation to the United Nations Security Council yesterday, it is hard to imagine how anyone could doubt that Iraq possesses weapons of mass destruction. Mr. Powell left no room to argue seriously that Iraq has accepted the Security Council's offer of a ‘final opportunity’ to disarm. And he offered a powerful new case that Saddam Hussein's regime is cooperating with a branch of the al Qaeda organization that is trying to acquire chemical weapons and stage attacks in Europe.” [Washington Post, 2/6/03]

Associated Events

Quote, July 13, 2003

   “It is unclear why Tenet failed to intervene in January to prevent the questionable intelligence from appearing in the president's address to Congress when Tenet had intervened three months earlier in a much less symbolic speech.” [Washington Post, 7/13/2003]

Washington Post actively participated in the following events:


1964      US-Brazil (1961-2003)

       Readers Digest reports on the coup: “Seldom has a major nation come closer to the brink of disaster and yet recovered than did Brazil in its recent triumph over Red subversion. The communist drive for domination-marked by propaganda, infiltration, terror-was moving in high gear. Total surrender seemed imminent—and then the people said ‘No!’ ” [Blum, 2000] The Washington Post reports a rather different story: “In 1964, with US Ambassador Lincoln Gordon's promises of immediate recognition and petroleum support, and with a US Navy task force—an aircraft carrier, destroyers, guided missiles—in Brazilian coastal waters, US-armed elements in the military advance upon Rio with troops and tanks. Not wanting to be responsible for bloodshed among Brazilians, Goulart refuses to call on loyalist forces and flees to Uruguay.” [The Washington Post, 4/3/64 cited in Lormand, n.d.]

2003      US-Brazil (1961-2003)

       US President George W. Bush's brother Jeb Bush makes a large contribution to the Cancun World Trade talks,defending the US's tariff on orange juice which protects Florida's citrus industry. In 1985, the US had imported half a billion gallons of orange juice from Brazil, and 20 million gallons from the rest of the world. These figures now stand at 150 million gallons and 100 million gallons respectively as a result of the tariffs. Another Bush family member, brother Marvin Bush, may be able to explain Jeb's interest in these subsidies—he holds 30,000 shares in a business which is directly dependent on continued Brazilian tariffs to keep its business. [Guerrilla News Network, 10/15/2003]
People and organizations involved: Washington Post, John Ellis ("Jeb") Bush

June 9, 2004      Torture in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere

       A Washington Post editorial argues that “the administration's reasoning will provide a ready excuse for dictators, especially those allied with the Bush administration, to go on torturing and killing detainees.” [Washington Post (Editorial), 6/9/2004]
People and organizations involved: Washington Post

December 5, 2004      Torture in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere

       The Washington Post says in an editorial that “Congress has shirked its responsibility.” It points out that no hearings on prisoner abuse have been held since August, no policymaker has been held accountable, and “no legislation has corrected the administration's twisted interpretation of torture or the Geneva Conventions.” The Post says that “the worst aspect of the Abu Ghraib scandal” has been that the system of abuses has “survived its public exposure.” [Washington Post (Editorial), 12/5/2004]
