Pentagon Worried About Obama's Commitment to Afghanistan

Nancy A. Youssef, Mcclatchy Newspapers: "The prospect that U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal may ask for as many as 45,000 additional American troops in Afghanistan is fueling growing tension within President Barack Obama's administration over the U.S. commitment to the war there."

CIA's Black Sites, Illuminated

Greg Miller, The Los Angeles Times: "Their transformations took place in a sensory cocoon: aboard a CIA aircraft, shackled in place, deprived of sight and sound by blindfolds, headsets and hoods. They emerged into an existence that was hidden for most of the last eight years, but now is possible to glimpse through dozens of declassified files released by the Obama administration last week."

A Little Girl in Kabul

Norman Solomon, Truthout: "Yesterday, I met a little girl named Guljumma. She's seven years old, and she lives in Kabul at a place called Helmand Refugee Camp District 5. Guljumma talked about what happened one morning last year when she was sleeping at home in southern Afghanistan's Helmand Valley. At about 5 AM, bombs exploded. Some people in her family died. She lost an arm."

America’s tortured past

Freedom's Phoenix
by Stephen Lendman

09/01/09

In response to two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits, ‘The government today handed over to the American Civil Liberties Union (one of dozens of documents comprising an unprecedented 130,000 previously secret pages, including) a detailed official description of the CIA’s interrogation program.’ Referring to a heavily redacted December 2004 report (originally commissioned by CIA director George Tenet) detailing torture of prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan, it ‘describes the use of abusive interrogation techniques including forced nudity, sleep deprivation, dietary manipulation and stress positions.’ Far worse ones were understated or redacted entirely...

The angry Americans

Charlotte Observer
by Steven Thomma

08/28/09

Less than a year into Barack Obama’s presidency, the promise of hope has faded. America’s public square is an angry and bitter place. Untold numbers of Americans seethe with anger at Obama and his fellow Democrats, resentment coupled with fear even more intense than the rage other Americans expressed just a year ago at George W. Bush and the Republicans. One telling sign: The comparisons of the president to Hitler remain the same — only the face has changed from Bush to Obama...

Who Won The Ideology Wars?

By David Michael Green

Who could have imagined, six months ago, that the ideology of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney would be poised for a comeback, perhaps in an even more toxic form than what we suffered through these last eight years? But that is, indeed, precisely where we find ourselves.

Telecom Towers in Rural Nova Scotia

This is an update on the issue of the rejection of a tower site proposed for Victoria Harbour, Kings Co, Nova Scotia, Canada. This is part of a government funded project to provide high speed internet to all rural Nova Scotians. The Federal government will pay for half of the cost. this project extends across rural Canada.

After consulting with the local residents, the municipal councillors voted 8-1 to reject granting a development license to Eastlink Cable Co (owned by John Bragg) one councillor refused to vote because he felt that he had been misled and that not all the information was presented, hence the 8-1 vote.

The proposed tower site is next to an organic garlic farm and home of 37 years. The organic garlic farm is the only remaining local food producer of seed garlic. Radiation is a recognized contaminate of local food produce by Agriculture Canada.

The tower has been stalled by the governments own bureaucracy with Eastlink requesting that Federal Government, Industry Canada ignore the municipal vote (the Land Use Authority)to reject the site and to permit the tower site without the required Developement License required( as set out in Industry Canada's regulations).

By appealing to our local Federal Member of Parliament, our local provincial government Agricultural Representitive,and the Municipal representitives, we have managed to put the project on hold since June pending a decision at the End of July. This has been extended to the end of August.

Industry Canada will notify Eastlink and the Municipality of the decision soon. The Municipality has sent letters to Industry Canada and their federal Member of Parliament stating the unamious vote to reject the site and thereby refuse to issue the required Development License.

Another proposed tower site in Margaretsville has also been rejected by the municipality. Margaretsville is a community near Victoria Harbour.

We expect that a decision may be made in early Sept.

Irresponsibly Following the Congressional Budget Office

Dean Baker, Truthout: "Members of Congress are responsible for getting the policy right, not doing what the CBO tells them. This means that if they have reason to believe that a CBO projection in a specific area is wrong, they should act based on their judgment, not on the CBO projection. Constituents have every right to hold their representatives in contempt if they try to blame their mistaken judgments on the CBO projections. Members of Congress get paid for getting the policy right, not listening to the CBO."
