Edmonds vs. Ashcroft: Our Last Chance For Justice?

Fintan Dunne, 27.06.2004 08:36

Edmonds is currently under a gag order on foot of legal applications by U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, over her claims of alleged corruption and 9/11-related cover-ups in the FBI translation unit which she joined just after the September 11th attacks.

Orwell goes to Iraq and more as 852 U.S.GI's now dead

jamie, 27.06.2004 06:17

Dear friends,

Recent news of the “turning tides” in U.S. public opinion, the release and potent success of Mike Moore’s new movie, the resurgent and fierce efforts of people from just about everywhere to take their world back, have me really thinking about that other world that is possible. Man I’m inspired! But we’ve got a lot of work to do and we can’t afford to relax in our efforts. “Everyone’s children” depend on a change of course in our nation that only we can bring about. “Things” have been getting worse for about as long as I can remember. I’m hopeful and think it possible that we are turning some kind of corner and that our “rulers” may soon have to face the fact that the “old” game is up and that the institution of real fairness and justice is the only path forward? Am I dreaming? I know that before this “dream” is realized, we will be in the streets, many on the asphalt.

After the movie last night a dear friend of mine turned to me and said “it was the best one he’s done. It was great. But I don’t think it will change the way things are.” At first I was a little drawn in to this pessimism. I could, as well, see clearly that the power structure was not going to collapse for one powerful expose by a wonderful film artist and human being, Michael Moore. But it never is “one” artist, one revolutionary, one worker, one leader, one activist, one act of rebellion, one woman saying no, etc. It is all of us coming together to demand and make change. “Fahrenheit 9/11” may not destroy the system of oppression under which we all live, but the façade of invincibility is cracking. We can all have a hand in seeing it disintegrate and disappear from this earth forever. Let‘s!

The news articles and notes below represent various perspectives (not at all in full agreement) on events and their meanings. I have more affinity for some than others. But it seems to me that these are the kinds of issues that America needs to be thinking and talking about now. Peace. Jamie


Cobb wins Green Party nomination, but not without fight

Andrew Broman, 27.06.2004 05:46

In nominating David Cobb, a lawyer from Texas, the party rejected Nader’s bid for an endorsement. At the annual convention, Cobb succeeded in portraying an endorsement as a sign of party weakness and called a vote for nomination as a matter of “institutional self-respect.”

US-Israeli Mercenaries Pose As al-Qaeda And Carry Out Staged Beheadings

John Kaminski/ here forwarded, 26.06.2004 23:28

"The Al-Qaeda terror organization has caused immense damage to Islam, to Moslems worldwide and to the interests of the peoples of all Arab and Muslim countries. The actions of Al-Qaeda have only served to promote the interests of the U.S. and Israel, which are clearly interested in "reshaping" the Middle East in such a way that they can more easily rape and plunder the region at will..."

A case of innocence - Alabama

Sherry Swiney, 26.06.2004 20:53

The wrong man!!! 318 days, 15 hours, 20 minutes, and 5 seconds have passed since the petition was filed in Alabama courts to prove the innocence of a man who has been wasting away in prison for 15 years for a crime he did not commit. Alabama is like that. It is loath to admit it made a very bad mistake and convicted the wrong man.

Fascist Mercenaries Come to Iraq

Posted by Gary Sudborough, 26.06.2004 16:46

Previously, I posted an article about fascist mass murderers and torturers from Latin America's "dirty wars" being employed by Blackwater. Now, it seems that members of South Africa's secret police, who murdered black activists during apartheid, are also mercenaries in Iraq.

The Roots of the Saudi-American Conspiracy (and stolen Muslim lands) Journal, 25.06.2004 18:27

Roosevelt wanted Ibn Saud to use his position with other Arab Leaders to win
support for a plan to transfer a portion of Palestine west of the Jordan River
to the Jews as a new homeland for $50 million.
In 1950 Ibn Saud asked Truman for a formal military treaty.
Truman's Assistant Secretary of State George McGhee told Saudi King Ibn Saud,
"The United States... will take most immediate action at any time that the
integrity and independence of Saudi Arabia is threatened." The King, evidently
pleased, closed the meeting by saying he wished, "It to be understood that he
considered the United States and Saudi Arabia as One State."

Reliving my torture: An American supervised it By Sister Dianna Ortiz, OSU

alwaysshariff, 25.06.2004 15:58

On November 2, 1989, I was abducted by Guatemalan security forces and taken to a clandestine prison, where I was burned with cigarettes more than 111 times, raped repeatedly, and subjected to other forms of torture. While there, I met the man my torturers referred to as their boss.

He was an American.

Baghdad Burning

raven, 25.06.2004 15:18

What American troops cannot do today, NATO troops won't be able to do later on. Everyone must know: Western troops will be regarded by Iraqis as occupiers. This is something that George W Bush and his faithful ally Tony Blair will do well to think about. If they have won a battle, they have not won the war yet. The great battle is still to begin. The liberation of Baghdad is not far away.”

The Clash of Our Civilisation

Brainaddict, 25.06.2004 15:07

The War on Terror, while maintaining a moderate level of violence that sporadically leaps to catastrophic highs, is essentially a war of words. George W. Bush understands this as well as anybody, at least on some level. He understands that it is about getting the world to operate to his definitions of good and evil – his and no one else’s.
