by Akram Nadir (Union Organizer in Iraq/Kurdistan) FWCUI International Rep.

The Contemptible Mr. Rove

Urge Congress to Vote Contempt for Rove
by Don Siegelman
Thousands of friends have already signed a petition, written, or called Congress, urging them to hold Karl Rove in contempt.  Thank you so much for speaking out! Now that a U.S. District Judge has ruled that White House aides like Rove can't claim immunity in order to refuse to testify before Congress, there's no room for Karl Rove to hide any longer -- but our time is running out.  If Congress adjourns at the end of September without holding Karl Rove in contempt, our chances at restoring democracy may very well be kaput.
So now we must pull out all the stops and turn up the heat.

That's why I'm asking you to call and write your Member of Congress and urge the full House to vote to hold Karl Rove in contempt.

My Brother-in-Law's Keeper: Palin's Real Scandal Problem

Palin Claims Right to See All State Files
by Jason Leopold
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is maneuvering to stop an investigation into an alleged abuse of power, in part, by claiming that she has an unlimited right to pry into the personnel records of all state employees, including the state trooper who divorced her sister.

Palin’s new position was summed up in a Sept. 9 letter from Alaska Attorney General Talis Colberg to the state legislature, which has authorized an independent counsel probe into whether Palin and her staff illegally accessed confidential personnel records of her ex-brother-in-law, state trooper Mike Wooten.

Escaping the Economic Black Hole

Escaping the Black Hole
by dd jango
Recently, many very smart people became very scared about the start-up of the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. They're afraid that the collider's activities will cause the creation of a black hole and, well, bye-bye Earth. The machine has been on-line for a short while now; no black hole yet. Maybe later.

I am certainly not either a quantum physicist or an astronomer. But I think it goes like this: as a star dies, it collapses in on itself, creating a mass with such enormous gravity as to suck in everything near it, including light. Scary, I agree. Instead of worrying about the LHC's potential for such an event, however, we would do well to turn our concern to an existing vortex - American presidential and other national-level politics.

Winter Soldiers Speak

BOOKS-IRAQ: "We Blew Her to Pieces"
Inter Press Service
by Dahr Jamail
Aside from the Iraqi people, nobody knows what the U.S. military is doing in Iraq better than the soldiers themselves. A new book gives readers vivid and detailed accounts of the devastation the U.S. occupation has brought to Iraq, in the soldiers' own words.

'Winter Soldier Iraq and Afghanistan: Eyewitness Accounts of the Occupation,' published by Haymarket Books Tuesday, is a gut-wrenching, historic chronicle of what the U.S. military has done to Iraq, as well as its own soldiers.

Six Questions for Bart Gellman

Six Questions for Bart Gellman, Author of Angler
by Scott Horton
Last June, Bart Gellman’s four-part series in the Washington Post gave us an extraordinary portrait of Dick Cheney, the most powerful vice president in America’s history. The series, called “Angler”–after the Secret Service’s codename for Cheney–was co-authored with Jo Becker and received this year’s National Reporting Pulitzer Prize (Gellman’s second Pulitzer).
Now Gellman has furnished the definitive portrait of the Cheney vice presidency in a book released today, also called Angler. It’s full of new disclosures about Cheney’s extraordinary skills as a power broker and his peculiar but highly influential views about a government in which a balance of powers is replaced with a clearly ascendant executive branch.
I put six questions to Bart Gellman about his new book.
