Plame: The Scandal Bush Can't Outrun

Bush Asserts Exec Privilege; Blocks DOJ From Releasing CIA Leak Documents
by Jason Leopold
In the latest twist in the “Plame-gate” scandal, President George W. Bush has asserted executive privilege to block release of Vice President Dick Cheney’s interview with a special prosecutor about possible criminal violations in the leaking of a CIA officer’s covert identity.

Rep. Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, promptly denounced the White House legal reasoning as “ludicrous,” noting that executive privilege covers advice that an aide gives the President, not responses to legal questions posed by a prosecutor about a possible crime.

Torture American Style: Omar Khadr's Tale of the Tape

Torture American Style: Omar Khadr's Tale of the Tape 
by C. L. Cook
Last week, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper refused to entertain petitioning the United States for the return of "child soldier" Omar Khadr, the last "coalition of the willing" country citizen held at Guantanamo Bay's infamous Camp X-Ray.
 
Today, Khadr's legal team released video tape of his "interrogation" by members of Canada's secret service, CSIS. The video is below, and not for the squeamish.  By refusing to intercede, Harper is complicit in the violation of a number of international treaties Canada, unlike the United States, is a signatory to.
 
 
 
 
 
Below the break is an article I wrote on the Khadr case in May of this year.

Iran: More War or Talk?

War, war, war or Jaw, jaw, jaw?
by William Bowles  
It’s amazing isn’t it how the media, given the appropriate cues from the state, so readily slips into a warring state of mind. I’m talking of course about Iran.

All the major media outlets have shifted into top gear over the past couple of weeks and, for the first time, talked about Israel’s role as the frontline ‘dog of war’ on behalf of its paymaster, the US.


You have to ask, what’s changed?

Whose Border Law?

Katenies' Kidnapping by Canadian Border Guards: What is the Law?
by Ieriwa'on:ni
Kidnapping is the forcible abduction and carrying of a person from their own country to another, according to English common law. It is the source of the laws of both Canada and the United States.

Kidnapping happened to Katenies on June 14th, 2008.  When she presented herself at the border controls that Canada has placed in the middle of the Akwesasne community, she was moving from one part of her ancestral homeland to another.  She did nothing to provoke the assault she suffered.

Hirelings Rush to Resolution

AIPAC’s Hirelings Rush to Resolution
by William A. Cook
Perception is often the stepchild of ignorance, especially when controlled by those with the most to gain. It is especially difficult for our Congress to perceive clearly when it grovels at the feet of its master, AIPAC.
 
America’s Knesset, servile hirelings of Israel’s lobby, rush to pass yet another resolution conceived by AIPAC and authored and co-signed by its most slavish puppets, Ackerman and Ros-Lehtinen in the House and Lieberman and Bayh in the Senate, Resolutions H. Con. 362 and S. 580, the “Iran War Resolution.”

Death from Above: The Wedding Crashers

The Wedding Crashers: A Short Till-Death-Do-Us-Part History of Bush's Wars
by Tom Engelhardt
It was a tribal affair. Against a picture-perfect sunset, before a beige-colored cross and an altar made of the very Texas limestone that was also used to build her family's "ranch," veil-less in an Oscar de la Renta gown, the 26 year-old bride said her vows.
 
More than 200 members of her extended family and friends were on hand, as well as the 14 women in her "house party," who were dressed "in seven different styles of knee-length dresses in seven different colors that match[ed] the palette of… wildflowers -- blues, greens, lavenders and pinky reds." Afterwards, in a white tent set in a grove of trees and illuminated by strings of lights, the father of the bride, George W. Bush, danced with his daughter to the strains of "You Are So Beautiful." The media was kept at arm's length and the vows were private, but undoubtedly they included the phrase "till death do us part."

That was early May of this year. Less than two months later, halfway across the world, another tribal affair was underway. The age of the bride involved is unknown to us, as is her name. No reporters were clamoring to get to her section of the mountainous backcountry of Afghanistan near the Pakistani border. We know almost nothing about her circumstances, except that she was on her way to a nearby village, evidently early in the morning, among a party 70-90 strong, mostly women, "escorting the bride to meet her groom as local tradition dictates."

Pastors Want Answers for Seized Computers

Pastors for Peace Caravan Returning from Cuba Monday July 14 to Request Release of Seized Computers Destined for Cuba
by Pastors for Peace
The Pastors for Peace US/Cuba Friendshipment Caravan will return to the US on Monday June 14 after delivering nearly 100 tons of humanitarian aid to Cuba, and will request the return of the 32 donated computers for Cuba that were seized from their caravan by US officials on July 3.
 
 
"We will continue to challenge this dumb, foolish, petty, counterproductive, mean-spirited, and immoral blockade until it is ended," said Rev. Lucius Walker, Jr., executive director of IFCO/Pastors for Peace.
 
The caravan is returning to the US on the same day as the Venceremos Brigade and several other organizations engaging in challenging US restrictions on travel to Cuba.
