A History of Brief Hope and Hype

Chronicle of a Craze Foretold: A History of Hope and Hype        
by Chris Floyd
A young, fresh-faced candidate, with a feisty, savvy wife, takes the political world by storm. He is highly intelligent, remarkably articulate, in sharp and ready command of the issues, with a winning charm and the common touch -- in stark contrast to the aging, bumbling, cantankerous dullard he faces in the election.
 
He offers hope and change, a whole new paradigm, a reinvention of politics as usual. He will take on the vested interests, the lobbyists, the tired ideas and rampant corruption of the Establishment. He will build a new international consensus, restoring America's tarnished reputation and its moral leadership after years of covert ops, secret wars, military adventurism, collusion with tryants, deceit and scandal.

Canada Comes Clean on Crimes Past (sort of)

Canada Confesses to Part of Its Crimes Against Humanity: There has Finally Been an Official Apology for "Murder," Rape...
by Kahentinetha Horn
Our people were kidnapped and held hostage for three to four generations. Genocide is taking children away and killing them. It was only a small part of a bigger story of “gangsterism” and greed. Don’t be fooled! That evil program is still in full swing.
 
Canada has no intention to stop. They continue to drive us off our land, to criminalize us, incarcerate us and to refuse to return control of our land and resources to us.

Supremes Rule Habeas Corpus for Gitmo "Detainees"

Supreme Court Condemns Guantanamo 
by The Real News
In a severe blow to the Bush administration the US Supreme Court ruled that suspects being held at Guantanamo Bay have rights under the US Constitution to challenge their detention in civilian courts. Ruling 5 to 4 the court concluded that the US government was violating the rights of prisoners being held indefinitely at the US naval base in Cuba.
 
The ruling could resurrect detainee lawsuits that federal judges in Washington postponed, pending the outcome of the high court case. It remains unclear if this ruling, unlike the first two, would lead to prompt hearings for the detainees, some of whom have been held for more than 6 years.

Rumsfeld Personally Approved of Brutal Interrogations

DOJ Official: Rumsfeld Personally Approved of Brutal Interrogations
by Jason Leopold
Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld personally authorized the use of brutal interrogation techniques against suspected terrorists imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay despite warnings from the FBI that the methods amounted to inhumane treatment, was possibly illegal, and would not produce reliable intelligence, a Department of Justice inspector general testified Tuesday.

"The FBI believed that these techniques were not getting actionable information, that they were unsophisticated and unproductive," said Glenn Fine, the DOJ’s inspector general, in testimony Tuesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. "They raised their concerns with the Department of Defense, but the Department of Defense, from what we were told, dismissed those concerns and that no changes were made in the Department of Defense's strategy."

Local war resisters and their supporters will be holding a petition-drive and rally in Foreign Affairs Minister David Emerson's riding.
 
Speakers will include War Resisters living in Vancouver and Bill Siksay, Member of Parliament for Burnaby—Douglas. Mr. Siksay points out that;
 
"The House of Commons has finally acted to support war resisters in Canada. Now it's up to the Conservatives to respect the advice of the House and put in place a program to land them. The government must also stop all deportation and removal action against war resisters immediately. Canadians support walking the talk on our opposition to Bush's war in Iraq. Justice demands we support a safe haven for war resisters."

Where: On the street at Main St. and 27th Ave in Vancouver
When: 1:00 PM, Saturday June 14th

Walter Natynczyk: Canada's New Number One at Defence

CDS Walter Natynczyk: A New Hand on the Helm
by Joe Hueglin
"If you're not prepared to argue your corner eloquently, articulately, occasionally aggressively but always clearly, you can't be a CDS or you can't be a commander," (1) these words from Canada's current Chief of Defence Staff, who possessed the qualities he articulated, are necessary for the position from which he is retiring next month.

Col. Dan Baggio, who served with Chief of Defence Staff designate Lt. General Walter Natynczyk in Baghdad, and until a few weeks ago, was responsible for army media relations at the Pentagon, describes the personal qualities of Canada's new CDS in these words:  "I say this from my heart, I honestly have never heard a harsh word about Walt Natynczyk….  He is not a butt chewer, but a true team player. He had a way of interjecting thoughts so well you thought that they were your own ideas. He was open- minded to guidance from his staff and when he disagreed, he disagreed politely. For me, he is the consummate general officer."

Civil liberties group files complaint against RCMP after police pursuit
by BCCLA
The British Columbia Civil Liberties Association filed a complaint with the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP today regarding the pursuit of Mr. Randall Dennis Gerard.
 
Mr. Gerard reportedly stole a 10-ton truck, instigating a protracted police pursuit that ended after road spikes immobilized the vehicle.  Mere seconds after Mr. Gerard exited the truck in an attempt to flee he was hit by an unmarked police vehicle.
 
Much of the pursuit was captured on video by a local television news helicopter.

"Special Weapons" Have Special Effects on Iraqi Babes

'Special Weapons' Have a Fallout on Babies
by Ali al-Fadhily and Dahr Jamail
Babies born in Fallujah are showing illnesses and deformities on a scale never seen before, doctors and residents say. The new cases, and the number of deaths among children, have risen after "special weaponry" was used in the two massive bombing campaigns in Fallujah in 2004.

After denying it at first, the Pentagon admitted in November 2005 that white phosphorous, a restricted incendiary weapon, was used a year earlier in Fallujah. In addition, depleted uranium (DU) munitions, which contain low-level radioactive waste, were used heavily in Fallujah. The Pentagon admits to having used 1,200 tonnes of DU in Iraq thus far.
