Iran Intelligence Report: Another Psychological Warfare?

By Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

Under the current administration, it is increasingly difficult to know who the enemy is, but what is certain is that the latest National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) is a brilliantly executed psychological warfare by way of misinformation. This dastardly plan is so devious that even the anti-war groups are jubilant at its release, and they are naively sharing its contents. Perhaps non are as enthusiastic about the report as the most powerful lobby group in America hostile to Iran.

Villagers ask: 'mast you put it here 3G?'

By Jonny Muir

Deeping Gate residents will renew their battle against a 25-metre phone mast at a High Court hearing next week.

Mobile phone company 3G wants to erect the mast 800 metres from the front door of Deeping Gate resident Pam Harris, even though she is allergic to the electro-magnetic emissions given off by masts.

Pam Harris' condition is so severe she has to be hooked up to a machine for 17 hours every other day so essential nutrients can be pumped into her body.

Although six-year-old Evie was happy at the highly rated Orston Primary School, Mr and Mrs Macklam were not prepared to run any risks.

Tribunal Rejected Intelligence on Detainee

Carol D. Leonnig, of The Washington Post, writes: "Just months after US Army troops whisked a German man from Pakistan to the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2002, his American captors concluded that he was not a terrorist. 'USA considers Murat Kurnaz's innocence to be proven,' a German intelligence officer wrote that year in a memo to his colleagues. 'He is to be released in approximately six to eight weeks.' But the 19-year-old student was not freed."

Senate Judiciary Democrats Push Contempt Motion

Susan Crabtree, of The Hill, reports: "Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats are pushing forward with a resolution holding the White House in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with their subpoenas for information and testimony related to the firings of several US attorneys. Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) on Tuesday put the contempt resolutions on the committee's agenda for Thursday's meeting. The move comes after Leahy issued a ruling last week calling the White House's claims of executive privilege and immunity 'overbroad, unsubstantiated and not legally valid.'"

Democrats Seeking Answers About Report on Iran

Roxana Tiron, of The Hill, reports: "Congressional Democrats are capitalizing on the latest intelligence estimate on Iran's nuclear weapons development to question President Bush's credibility amid an angry stalemate with the White House over funding government operations and the war in Iraq. While many Democrats said they remain cautious about the National Intelligence Estimate's (NIE) conclusion that Iran halted its nuclear weapons development program in 2003, several said that Congress should investigate the discrepancy between the Bush administration's recent doomsday rhetoric on Iran and the NIE's judgments."

Enduring an Occupation for Oil

Ann Wright, for Truthout, writes: "Last week Iraq's Maliki government 'asked' President Bush for an 'enduring' strategic security relationship with the United States that will have 50,000 US military and probably 50,000-75,000 US contractors/mercenaries in Iraq for decades. Reportedly these 100,000-plus Americans will be primarily confined to the fourteen permanent bases built by the US. Their role, according to Bush's point person on Iraq, retired US Army Gen. Douglas Lute, will be to backstop, perhaps for the next 50 years, newly trained Iraqi military and police forces. Iraq's new strategic security relationship also contains an agreement for preferential treatment from the Iraqi government to American corporations."

In a report from April, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) detailed a massive hole in the White House email records. The report, titled 'Without a Trace: The Missing White House Emails and the Violations of the Presidential Records Act,' accused the Bush administration of destroying 'more than 5 million' emails and failing to attempt to recover them."

Why Bush’s troop surge won’t save Iraq

Salon
by Juan Cole

12/04/07

The current ‘good news’ campaign from the Bush administration regarding the troop surge is only the latest in a long history of whitewashing the war since the 2003 invasion. First, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld denied that there was massive looting following the fall of Baghdad. Then he denied that there was a rising guerrilla war. Then … the victory of Shiite fundamentalists close to Iran was obscured by the ‘purple thumb’ good news campaign. That is, the administration focused on the democratic process and relative success of the voting, diverting attention from the bad news that the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq had taken over. Later, it was good news when the Iraqi parliament produced a theocratic constitution …. The Bush administration has heralded any number of such ‘milestones’ reached, but not whether they led to worthwhile results. Obscured by these ‘milestones’ is that the orgy of violence in Iraq has displaced 2 million persons abroad and another 2 million internally, and left tens of thousands dead. But now the ‘good news’ is that the guerrillas appear not to have been able to keep up the pace of violence characteristic of 2006 and early 2007, even if the pace they maintain today is horrific...

No Iran attack? Don’t be so sure …

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

12/05/07

The NIE seems to have unhinged the lesser neocons, who are reduced to the sort of noises a small mammal makes when cornered. Norman Podhoretz, however, is quite a different story: his contribution to the ‘debate’ is a perfect gem of the purest nihilism, a textbook example of Bizarro World logic. According to Podhoretz, since the last NIE was wrong, this one cannot be right. They were wrong then, he wails, so how can we trust them now? This principle, applied to, say, the realm of science, would ensure that no progress, no advance on the road to truth, no technological or theoretical innovation would ever be possible, because, after all, scientists have been wrong before. But truth is not Podhoretz’s concern: he’s already determined, a priori, that the truth is whatever he says it is...

It takes a Taser to raise a child

The Price of Liberty
by Doug Newman

12/03/07

Tasering is harsh and extremely painful. In each of the above cases, tasering constituted ‘cruel and unusual punishment.’ Tasering is a form of ‘pain compliance,’ which is just a euphemism for torture. Tasering has killed people. In each case, police claimed they tasered these kids for their own good. This is all too reminiscent of the army officer during Vietnam who claimed that it was necessary to destroy a village in order to save it...

Torture and the nation

TCS Daily
by Raphael C. Rosen

12/04/07

The US government naturally wants to do everything in its power to save its citizens’ lives. Whether, day-to-day, torture helps achieve this goal is beyond my expertise. What is certain, however, is that the willingness to employ any method transforms the nature of America’s struggle against Islamist terrorism from a solemn commitment into an obsession. And victory will not come from obsessively thwarting attacks (excellent though that is in the short-term) but from the successful discrediting of a poisonous, fascistic ideology that al-Qaeda and others seek to inject into the minds of Muslim youth across the globe. The relevant question is whether torture, despite its noxious nature, helps the long-term campaign against this ideology. It does not. A nation like America, whose lifeblood is its citizens’ enjoyment of broad Lockean ideals, dilutes its character when it commits inhuman acts for the sake of humanitarian ends. And America’s character, backed up by its armed forces, is the fountain of its strength...

Agenturschluss 3 in Hamburg: Dem ARGE-Terror das Handwerk legen! (3. Januar 2008)

Einladung zur Interessensversammlung von Teilnehmern an Arbeitsgelegenheiten am 2. Januar 2008

„Im Januar 2008 ist die Anwendung des "Vierten Gesetz zu modernen Dienstleistungen am Arbeitsmarkt", besser bekannt als Hartz 4 - Gesetz drei Jahre alt. Ab den Januar 2008 werden die Ein Euro Jobs in einer neuen Mogelpackung verpackt. Diese Schachtel heißt dann zynisch 3. Arbeitsmarkt. Damit werden neue Handlungsfreiräume für Arbeitgeber mit Ausbeuterischen Interessen von Erwerbslosen geschaffen. Viele Beschäftigungsträger von Ein Euro Jobs halten sich nicht an das Kriterium der Zusätzlichkeit. Diese Machenschaften werden ab 2008 ganz legal.. Erwerbslose machen dann einen öffentlich bezahlten Job, der nicht viel mehr als Hartz 4 Bezug und der Mehraufwandsentschädigung für Ein Euro JobberInnen einbringt und diese ArbeiterInnen sind weiter ohne Einschränkungen und Rechte auf dem ersten Arbeitsmarkt einsetzbar. SCHLUSS mit LUSTIG !! Folglich ist es richtig, sich mit dem Gedanken betraut zu machen, das nicht jedes Gesetz auch folglich richtig ist. Am 2. Januar findet eine Kundgebung mit Informationsveranstaltung der anderen Art statt. Themeninhalte sind Wege aus diesem Dilemma und der Abwehr von Maßnahmen, die in einem Hungerlohn und totaler Fremdbestimmung münden. Dazu laden wir am 02.01.2008 zur Kundgebung vor der HAB - Zentrale (hamburger arbeit) am Strohause 2, Nähe Berliner Tor von 10:00 bis 16:00 Uhr ein.“ Der Flyer zur Aktion (pdf) http://www.labournet.de/diskussion/arbeit/aktionen/as3_hamburg3.pdf

„Die Studie des Wirtschaftsforschungsinstituts Prognos hat es in sich: Deregulierungen am Arbeitsmarkt zeigen im internationalen Vergleich von 20 OECD-Ländern keinen Effekt hinsichtlich der Beschäftigung. Ein hoher gewerkschaftlicher Organisationsgrad dagegen schon. Und eine antizyklische Fiskalpolitik haben Großbritannien und den USA geholfen, ihre Wirtschaftsprobleme zu meistern. Kurz: Diese Ergebnisse der Studie widersprechen massiv der Wirtschaftspolitik der deutschen Bundesregierungen in den vergangenen zehn Jahren. Vielleicht mit ein Grund, warum das Bundeswirtschaftsministerium als Auftraggeber der Studie diese bislang nicht an die Öffentlichkeit gebracht hat. Dort heißt es, eine Veröffentlichung durch das Ministerium hänge von der politischen Aktualität der Studie ab. Was aber könnte aktueller sein, als Hinweise, dass Hartz IV und die Agenda 2010 beschäftigungspolitisch nur Humbug sind?..“ Artikel von Rudolf Stumberger in telepolis vom 04.12.2007 http://www.heise.de/tp/r4/artikel/26/26746/1.html

The Lies at the End of the American Dream

The Shortage Myth

By Paul Craig Roberts

Integrity is so lacking in America that the shortage myth serves the interests of universities, funding agencies, employers, and immigration attorneys at the expense of American students who naively pursue professions in which their prospects are dim. Initially it was blue-collar factory workers who were abandoned by US corporations and politicians. Now it is white-collar employees and Americans trained in science and technology.
