Judge Orders OSHA to Release Toxin Information

"A federal judge has ordered the Labor Department to share with the public the results of years of toxic substance sampling in American workplaces. Federal officials said Monday they were reviewing the decision. The decision, by US District Judge Mary L. Cooper, came in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by former Labor Department official Adam Finkel, who now is a whistleblower," reports The Associated Press.

FDA Officials Operated Under Veil of Secrecy

"For years, the public calendars of two top federal drug safety officials were largely blank - devoid of the required detail about their contacts with the industry they regulated. Open government experts and lawmakers said it is only the latest example of the lack of transparency at the Food and Drug Administration and a violation of the spirit of open government," reports The Associated Press.

DOJ Documents Show Sampson Deleted Email

Matt Renner reports for Truthout: "An internal Department of Justice email dealing with a series of the most controversial aspects of the US attorney firing scandal was deleted by a DOJ official the day after Congress began to address the firings. Three months later, the official told Congressional investigators that he had not destroyed any documents or deleted any records relating to the US attorney firings. This is the first publicly released evidence that individuals directly involved in the plan to fire eight US attorneys have destroyed documents that are of interest to Congressional investigators."

Do Not Execute Elijah Page!

The state of South Dakota is set to execute Elijah Page on July 9-13 for the March 2000 murder of Allan Poage in Spearfish, SD. Page was 18 at the time of this crime.

His trial judge even stated, "Most parents treated their pets better than your parents treated you." Of his two codefendents, one received the death penalty and another received a life sentence.

Page has given up his appeals. This will be South Dakota's first execution in 60 years.

ACT NOW by contacting Gov. Mike Rounds requesting that Elijah Page's execution be halted!

CIA’s darkest secret

Boston Globe
by James Carroll

07/02/07

Every so often, the front page trumpets ethical and legal lapses committed by US intelligence agencies. In Iraq, they have run the gamut from pre war falsification of weapons data to surveillance of American citizens to kidnapping to torture of prisoners. During the Cold War, it was ‘black operations’ that included staging coups, assassinating foreign leaders, infiltrating American organizations, conspiring with Mafia groups, spying on journalists — perhaps even murder. Last week, the latest paroxysm of revelation announced, as a New York Times headline put it, ‘CIA Skeleton … [A] Catalogue of Wiretaps, Assassination Plots, and Mind Control.’ But the so called ‘family jewels’ of the CIA’s hidden abuses may not enshrine the deepest and darkest secret...

US role in Islamist terrorism

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland

07/02/07

When U.S. government officials and foreign policy pundits discuss terrorism, they usually focus on the characteristics, personnel, history, tactics, targets, objectives and effects of terrorist organizations. They rarely talk about motives. To fully understand Islamic terrorism, one needs to understand what triggers this extraordinary rage. And throughout history one factor stands out above all else: the occupation of Muslim land by non-Muslim forces...

Our militarized police departments

Reason
by Radley Balko

07/02/07

Militarization is a broad term that refers to using military-style weapons, tactics, training, uniforms, and even heavy equipment by civilian police departments. It’s a troubling trend because the military has a very different and distinct role than our domestic peace officers. The military’s job is to annihilate a foreign enemy. The police are supposed to protect us while upholding our constitutional rights. It’s dangerous to conflate the two. But that’s exactly what we’re doing...

Thrown to the lions

The American Spectator
by Doug Bandow

07/02/07

Someone in the U.S. government finally has noticed the plight of Iraqi Christians. A congressional appropriations subcommittee has voted to spend $10 million to aid displaced religious minorities within Iraq. That mostly means Christians. Although Islam long has been in the ascendancy in Iraq, the so-called Assyrians, who speak a neo-Aramaic language, represent a distinct religious minority, generally grouped in the Chaldean, Apostolic Catholic, and Syriac Orthodox churches. The Assyrians predate the rise of Islam, representing a 7,000 year-old civilization. They have survived numerous episodes of war and catastrophe. Today, however, the Iraqi Christian community faces possible extermination...

Mobile phones failed to trigger car bombs

Raw Story

07/02/07

The attempted London car bombings were meant to be detonated by calls to mobile phones in the two vehicles, but failed for technical reasons, the Evening Standard reported Monday. The calls made on the phones allowed police to trace those behind the failed attacks last Friday, the London daily evening newspaper said, without giving sources. The phones were meant to set off blasts when they were called, but the devices failed to detonate the mixture of gas canisters and nails in the two Mercedes cars parked in London’s entertainment district...

FOIA requests plagued by delays

Using the Freedom of Information Act to get information from the government is like waiting for ketchup to flow from a new bottle. Both often take longer than they are supposed to. The act that gave citizens the power to request information from federal government files celebrates its 40th anniversary on July 4. But those seeking data continue to encounter long delays despite a 2005 order by President Bush to clear the unanswered backlog...

Judge Army Col. Peter Brownback dropped the charges against Canadian detainee Omar Khadr last month on the grounds Brownback’s court lacked the jurisdiction to try him.

This illegal war made Scotland a target for terrorists

Saturday was indeed a very sad day for us all in Scotland. For the first time in centuries Scotland has become a target for acts of terrorism. During the IRA terrorist campaign Scotland was not considered a target. However, Tony Blair and the Labour party, including the former first minister Jack McConnell, who supported the illegal Iraqi war, have now made Scotland an inevitable prime target by sending our troops to Iraq.

Slaying Our Dreams: Created Our Nightmares

The joys of multinational Corporate power should have limits placed upon them: just as the people who work for Corporations need to have their own separate and inviolate "Bill of Rights" for anyone that has to deal with corporate-anything. We have the power to demand that the government we pay for must work for all of us and not for those who seek to steal our lives and dreams.
