Calls Grow for Probe of CIA Plan for al-Qaeda Hits

Pamela Hess, The Associated Press: "Congressional demands for an investigation grew on Monday over new disclosures that a secret CIA program to capture or kill al-Qaida leaders was concealed from Congress for eight years, perhaps at the behest of former Vice President Dick Cheney."

To Many Iraqis, US Troops Have Not Faded Away

Quil Lawrence, NPR News: "Nearly two weeks after U.S. combat troops officially pulled out of Iraq's cities, the government in Baghdad is hailing the withdrawal as a sign that it is holding the U.S. to an agreement stipulating that all American troops leave Iraq by 2012."

Equality and Freedom

Maurice Ulrich, L'Humanite: "Two hundred and twenty years after the taking of the Bastille, new Bastilles offer a challenge to reason. Hundreds of millions of men, women and children live on less than a Euro a day, but that's not all. Access to water, massive air pollution, access to health care, to education, the situation of women, children and minorities are so many abysmal and often criminal inequalities in a world that people say has become a village."

Councillors 'to approve' phone mast

3:40pm Tuesday 14th July 2009

Councillors are expected to rubber-stamp a plan to build a 12-metre tall mobile phone mast in a sedate corner of Mill End.

Telecommunications giant Orange plans to build the mast, disguised as a lamp post, in Berry Lane, adjacent to a railway bridge.

Three Rivers District Council’s development control committee, which will meet on Thursday to discuss the application, is expected to raise “no objection” – despite the concerns of residents living nearby.

Only Forceful Action Can Turn Foreclosure Crisis Tide

Mary Kane, The Washington Independent: "The time may be ripe for a shift in strategy as the foreclosure machine grinds on, and new foreclosure notices reach the troubling milestone of 10,000 per day. A weak economy has added job losses and falling home values to the mix of toxic loans that prompted the crisis two years ago, making an already difficult situation even more severe. Government measures from foreclosure freezes to loan modifications have only served, so far, to stall the inevitable - and to create an ominous backlog of millions of pending foreclosures."

The Africa Obama didn’t visit

AntiWar.Com
by Kelley B. Vlahos

07/14/09

President Barack Obama’s trip to Africa did not include Somalia, but the president needn’t go there to see that U.S. policy in Somalia has been an utter disaster. In fact, it would have been impossible for him to get anywhere near Mogadishu, because there is no real government to speak of, not to mention clean water, safe shelter, or even enough hopeful locals to greet him on the tarmac. The capital city is worse than a ghost town, it is chaos, a space defined by relentless violence and a symbol of every failed attempt to fix it. From the safe distance of Ghana, Obama was able to reiterate the next in a string of ill-conceived attempts to help Somalia...

Should Americans be humble?

Tibor's Space
by Tibor R. Machan

07/13/09

After president Obama traveled abroad recently it became clear that he wanted to present himself and, indirectly, America as a nation, differently from how he believed President George W. Bush did this. In particular, Mr. Bush was generally seen by his critics as more of an ‘ugly American,’ following the character of the novel by that name, written half a century ago by Eugene Burdick and William J. Lederer (who exemplified the sort of American who tended to be insensitive to the rest of the world’s population, their customs and languages, etc.). Mr. Obama seems to want to change this by appearing to be less arrogant, swagger less than Mr. Bush. Instead Mr. Obama wants to be friends with virtually everyone, even those who have no interest it being friends with America and Americans, including him...

A new stimulus? Washington never learns

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Sheldon Richman

07/10/09

In Washington, the rule is: If a little poison doesn’t cure the patient, give him more. This rule is being applied not only to health care, where massive doses of government intervention are being prescribed to treat the toxicity of past government intervention. It’s also being used in the attempt to end the recession. When Barack Obama took power he told the American people that an ‘economic stimulus’ bill was indispensable to fixing the economy...

To mitigate economic Armageddon

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland

07/13/09

The U.S. government is deeper in debt than it has been since just after World War II. When Bill Clinton, who actually reduced the federal deficit as a portion of GDP, left office, the Congressional Budget Office projected an $800 billion dollar yearly budget surplus for the years 2009 to 2012. Now CBO projects an annual budget deficit of a whopping $1.2 trillion. Although Republicans are blaming Barack Obama for this gargantuan budget gap, George W. Bush is responsible for 53 percent of the total, according to the New York Times. Another 37 percent is due to the recession of the early part of the decade and the global meltdown that began in late 2007. Obama is responsible for only 10 percent of the total. Yet the reason that Obama’s portion is so small is because George W. Bush, a big-government Republican, was in office for eight years, and Obama has been in office less than six months. Obama has been spending at a phenomenal rate — on a pork-filled stimulus bill and an expansive domestic agenda...

A Second Stimulus Package? Yikes!

Cato Institute
by Alan Reynolds

07/10/09

Investors understand that increased government spending diverts valuable resources away from the private sector and ends up imposing even more demoralizing taxes on labor and capital. A major study of 18 large economies by Alberto Alesina of Harvard and three colleagues appeared in the 2002 American Economic Review. This paper, ‘Fiscal Policy, Profits and Investment’ found that the surest way to make economies boom can be through deep cuts in government spending — the exact opposite of the ‘fiscal stimulus’ snake oil...

Training and responsibility

Unqualified Offerings
by Thoreau

07/13/09

John Yoo wrote memos justifying anything and everything that the President wanted to do. He knew, or should have known, that most of what he was attempting to justify was a crime. Most of the things that he was writing about were very, very obviously illegal. In writing memos on these things he was not engaging in mere academic exercises. He was providing the misinformation needed to persuade people in the field to commit crimes. And if one wants to argue (rightly or wrongly) that some of the things Yoo addressed were genuinely gray, that is all the more reason to expect more of him, given his responsibility to provide accurate information for people who are not lawyers. The harder the question, the more important it is to get it right. If anybody gets off on the grounds of ‘just following memos’ then that is all the more reason to prosecute the memo writer...

The end is near

Boston Globe
by James Carroll

07/20/09

It used to be that apocalyptic warnings about the approaching end of time came from sign-holding religious nutcases. Now they come from hard [sic] scientists. Most discussion of the threat of global warming is conducted in measured tones, with even dire projections offered with the necessary proviso that the future is uncertain. But as governments fail to act strenuously enough against the villainous carbon emissions, and as the broad public continues in a state of environmental quietude, if not indifference, scientific voices are sharpening the alarm. E.O. Wilson, in his book The Creation, used the word Armageddon to describe the rapid shrinking of Earth’s biodiversity. James Lovelock has foreseen a small remnant of the human population in retreat to the Arctic by the end of this century...

I've Seen 1,200 Torture Photos

By David Swanson

Prisoner with an ID (153399) is shown missing a good portion of his head. This is one of a number of dead bodies shown in the photographs. SBS (the Australian news outlet) found an Army report on his death and concluded that these dead prisoners had likely been shot by guards during a riot or murdered by guards in other circumstances. Others have claimed mortar attacks from outside the prison are to blame.

Extension agreed to T-Mobile mast in Great Budworth

...The issue came before the board at the request of Marbury Cllr Malcolm Byram (Con). Parish councillors, who were backed by Cllr Byram, conservationists and neighbours opposed the plans.

Great Budworth Parish Council said it had ‘grave concerns’ about the visual impact of raising the tower above the tree canopy.

The village Amenity Society also felt it would be intrusive.

Neighbours at Garden Cottage, 75m from the installation, said they were ‘seriously concerned’ about increased health risks and pointed out that Cransley School is within 400m.
