Seattle PI Shields Murray's Foreign Policy Stance

As "Senator" Mark Greene criticized Patty Murray for voting for the India nuclear energy deal, which authorizes our nation to provide nuclear energy materials to a nuclear armed nation that has always defied and continually defies the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (see "Seattle PI Censors the Party of Commons" essay), it appears the Seattle Post-Intelligencer is going out of their way to support a political candidate by censoring Mark's comments. The Party of Commons hopes that the rest of the media in Washington will not go along with this kind of censorship, which would only lower journalistic standards.

Despite India's (and others nation's) intransigence regarding the NPT, not even joining the treaty in which the overwhelming majority of nations have signed, our nation also has not lived up to its obligations under the NPT. The Bush rule, with the likes of former official John Bolton and his crowd being influential, has especially either undermined or tried to undermine the NPT and other treaties, most startling by starting a program to build the "bunker buster" nuclear armaments. The NPT calls for nuclear armed countries to begin the process of dismantling their arsenals, not building them up.

Don't let the Seattle PI succeed with their censorship; please, tell others about Mark's campaign for senator and refer them to the Party of Commons website: (which can also be reached by clicking on the title link, above).
