India Toes Bush Line on Iran

The Singh government's far-right predecessors had tried to forge an "anti-terrorist" alliance with the US and even become the camp-followers of Bush in Iraq, but failed. Popular opposition prevented it. It remains to be seen whether India's ruling class can take advantage of the new Iran opening to make "strategic partnership" with the US more real - and whether the people of the country will permit it, writes J. Sri Raman.

Handful of Races May Tip Control of Congress

Not since 1994 has the party in power - in this case the Republicans - faced such a discouraging landscape in a midterm election. The result is a midterm already headed toward what appears to be an inevitable conclusion: Democrats are poised to gain seats in the House and in the Senate for the first time since 2000.

Conservatives Break with Bush on Spying

The skeptics include leaders of conservative activist groups, well-known law professors, veterans of Republican administrations, former GOP members of Congress, and think tank analysts.

Drohender Iran-Krieg: Friedensbewegung will "das nächste Völkerverbrechen verhindern"

06.02.06

Auf einer Aktionskonferenz der Friedensbewegung in Kassel am Sonntag diskutierten über 40 Vertreter deutscher Friedensinitiativen und -organisationen über Möglichkeiten, "den drohenden Krieg gegen Iran zu verhindern". Nach Auffassung der deutschen Friedensbewegung stellt für die politische Klasse der USA "ein neuerlicher völkerrechtswidriger Krieg kein politisches oder rechtliches Problem dar". Die Aussagen des US-Präsidenten in seiner jüngsten Rede zur Lage der Nation ließen keine andere Interpretation zu als die: "Wenn der Iran nicht die energiepolitische Strategie der USA akzeptiert (kein geschlossener Brennstoffkreislauf für sog. "Schurkenstaaten"), seien militärische Maßnahmen nicht mehr auszuschließen." Im Unterschied zur Situation vor dem Irakkrieg vor drei Jahren hätten sich diesmal auch die Bundesregierung und die EU vollständig hinter den Kurs der USA gestellt und somit als "ultima ratio" einen Krieg fest einkalkuliert.

Bath council chiefs are accused of breaking their own rules in a bizarre saga dating back almost 70 years. Furious residents say Bath and North East Somerset Council bosses have flouted a legal ruling their predecessors passed to stop development on Stirtingale Farm, now known as the Stirtingale playing fields.

Back then farmers did not want the council to make a killing on the land so made sure it was handed over with a covenant that no development could take place there.

But now it is covered with buildings and mobile phone masts which the residents say must come down.

Odd Down resident Paul Trim said the councillors could not ignore the rules.

Council chiefs are understood to be studying the original documents and preparing a report for councillors.

Specter Wants Answers on Spying

By The Associated Press The Associated Press
Sunday, February 5, 2006; 3:49 PM

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS: Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., says Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has not adequately answered questions about the National Security Agency's domestic wiretapping program. The Senate Judiciary Committee begins hearings on the program Monday.

LEGALITY: Specter believes President Bush broke a 1978 law designed to oversee wiretapping by going around a special court designed to hear such requests.

OTHER SIDE: The Bush administration contends the president had the authority to order the wiretapping under his constitutional powers as well as those delegated to him by Congress after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Specter Criticizes Rationale for Spying
By HOPE YEN
Associated Press Writer
© 2006 The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has not adequately justified why the Bush administration failed to seek court approval for domestic surveillance, said the senator in charge of a hearing Monday on the program.

Sen. Arlen Specter said Sunday he believes that President Bush violated a 1978 law specifically calling for a secret court to consider and approve such monitoring. The Pennsylvania Republican branded Gonzales' explanations to date as "strained and unrealistic."

The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, predicted that the committee would have to subpoena the administration to obtain internal documents that lay out the legal basis for the program. Justice Department officials have declined, citing in part the confidential nature of legal communications.

Specter said he would have his committee consider such a step if the attorney general does not go beyond his prior statements and prepared testimony that the spying is legal, necessary and narrowly defined to fight terrorists.

"This issue of the foreign intelligence surveillance court is really big, big, big because the president, the administration, could take this entire program and lay it on the line to that court," Specter told NBC's "Meet the Press."

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 established legal procedures for conducting intelligence-related searches and surveillance inside the United States.

Specter said the FISA court "has really an outstanding record of not leaking, and of being experts. And they would be pre-eminently well-qualified to evaluate this program and either say it's OK or it's not OK."

Leahy charged that Bush misled the public when he said during the presidential campaign in April 2004 that his administration was following the law by getting warrants for wiretapping.

"I think ultimately we're going to have to subpoena them," Leahy said on CBS' "Face the Nation," expressing doubt that lawmakers would get the material otherwise.

Under the National Security Agency program put in place after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the government has eavesdropped, without seeking warrants, on international phone calls and e-mails of people within the United States who are deemed to be a terrorism risk.

In testimony prepared for Monday's hearing, Gonzales argues that Bush had authority under a 2001 congressional resolution authorizing force in the fight against terrorism and that heeding the 1978 law would be too cumbersome.

"The terrorist surveillance program operated by the NSA requires the maximum in speed and agility, since even a very short delay may make the difference between success and failure in preventing the next attack," Gonzales said in statements obtained by The Associated Press.

Specter was not so sure.

"I believe that contention is very strained and unrealistic," Specter said. If the FISA law was inadequate, he said, Bush should have asked Congress to change it rather than ignore it. "The authorization for the use of force doesn't say anything about electronic surveillance."

Sen. Russell Feingold, D-Wis., was expected to press Gonzales on why, during Gonzales' confirmation hearings last year to be attorney general, he dismissed as "hypothetical" a situation in which the government conducted warrantless eavesdropping. The NSA program was long in place by then, and Gonzales was White House counsel.

Assistant Attorney General William Moschella, in a letter Friday to Feingold, said Gonzales was referring to as "hypothetical" the idea that Bush would allow warrantless monitoring that was illegal.

That statement is accurate, Moschella wrote in a letter obtained by the AP, because the administration's position is that Bush had legal authority under the 2001 congressional resolution.

Gonzales has acknowledged disagreement with former Justice Department officials, including Attorney General John Ashcroft and Deputy Attorney General James Comey, about the legality of the program.

In responses to written questions from Specter, Gonzales challenged media portrayals about the scope of the spy program, saying it is not "a dragnet that sucks in all conversations and uses computer searches to pick out calls of interest."

The Washington Post, citing unnamed sources, reported Sunday that the program involves computers sifting through hundreds of thousands of communications to select for human review. The program has resulted in thousands of conversations in which someone in the U.S. has been at least briefly monitored, the Post said.

The Post report said that nearly all of them were quickly dismissed as insignificant and that perhaps no more than 10 solid leads a year have been pursued with further domestic surveillance, usually with a court warrant.

But Gen. Michael Hayden, the No. 2 intelligence official in the government, said it was "not true" that "we somehow grab the content of communications and then use the content of the communications to determine which of the communications we really want to listen to."

"When NSA goes after the content of a communication under this authorization from the president, the NSA has already established its reasons for being interested in that specific communication," Hayden said on "Fox News Sunday."

In addition to possibly pursuing documents about the program's legal basis, Specter said he might seek testimony from Ashcroft and Comey.

"If we come to it and we need it, I'll be open about it," Specter said, referring to subpoenas. "If the necessity arises, I won't be timid."

Specter also said the administration should tread carefully when it came to using subpoenas against journalists to investigate leaks of classified information. The New York Times in December disclosed the existence of the NSA program, which is classified.

"I think if you move into the area of really serious national security issues, that there may be a justification for it," he said.

Subsequent shifting of the nation’s wealth to the “oligarchy of racketeers” who run the system

Bush’s Tyranny for a Bankrupt Nation

By Mike Whitney

The Bush master-plan is no different than the economic shock-therapy the United States has directed at the third world for decades. The strategy is simple and straightforward, but virtually foolproof in achieving its objectives; the crushing of the middle class and the subsequent shifting of the nation’s wealth to the “oligarchy of racketeers” who run the system.

Politicians are stifling dissent, critics say

Knight Ridder
by Steven Thomma

02/04/06

The ejection of two women from the U.S. Capitol for wearing message T-shirts during President Bush's State of the Union speech this week was the latest incident in a growing trend of stifling dissent in politics. Capitol Police later apologized for ejecting the women from the House of Representatives gallery -- after one of them, the wife of a congressman, complained bitterly, as did her husband. The police acknowledged that they'd acted overzealously. But their actions weren't atypical in today's overheated political climate. Protesters outside political conventions are herded behind razor wire far from the action, citizens wearing a rival candidate's stickers are forcefully ejected from presidential campaign rallies on public property, and those who heckle the president or broadcast issue ads within 60 days of an election can be prosecuted. The tension between the Capitol Police and the women is symbolic of the eternal conflict between those who seek to silence dissent and those who advocate free speech. 'This is the latest manifestation of the desire by those in power to minimize criticism and marginalize critics,' said Nadine Strossen, the president of the American Civil Liberties Union. This is dissent via T-shirts...

Reap the whirlwind

The Nation
by Bruce Shapiro

02/03/06

If the Supreme Court's 1954 ruling in Brown v. Board of Education can be said to have opened the epic of the modern civil rights era, it is now also possible to mark that era's final, exhausted page: January 31, 2006. It was not just the confirmation that day of Samuel Alito, whose constricted notion of law is likely to turn the Supreme Court definitively against Brown's expansive promise and the other liberation movements it inspired, or the death of Coretta Scott King, so soon after the passing of Rosa Parks. Rather, the rise of Alito and the death of Coretta King illuminate the abandonment by both political parties of the civil rights legacy. President Bush, in his State of the Union message, managed to eulogize Coretta King without a single mention of the words 'civil rights' or 'discrimination.' And among Democratic senators, barely half mustered the fortitude to support the attempted filibuster against Alito, which would at least have served as a national call to conscience on the importance of the Court as a guarantor of rights...

Why would a president use his State of the Union to lash out at a school of foreign policy thought that has had zero influence in his administration? The answer is a simple one, but it is not an easy one for Bush to face: His foreign policy is visibly failing, and his critics have been proven right. But rather than defend the fruits of his policy, Bush has chosen to caricature critics who warned him against interventionism. Like all politicians in trouble, Bush knows that the best defense is a good offense. Having plunged us into an unnecessary war, Bush now confronts the real possibility of strategic defeat and a failed presidency...

While Cindy Sheehan was being dragged from the House gallery moments before President Bush delivered his State of the Union Address for wearing a T-shirt honoring her son and the other 2,244 U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq, Turki al-Faisal was settling into his seat inside the gallery. Al-Faisal, a Saudi, is a man who has met Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants on at least five occasions, describing the al Qaida leader as 'quite a pleasant man.' He met multiple times with Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar. Yet, unlike Sheehan, al-Faisal was a welcomed guest of President Bush on Tuesday night. He is also a man that the families of more than 600 victims of the 9/11 attacks believe was connected to their loved ones' deaths...

Advances in mobile phone tracking technology are turning British firms into cyber sleuths as they keep a virtual eye on their staff, vehicles and stock. In the past few years, companies that offer tracking services have seen an explosion in interest from businesses keen to take advantage of technological developments in the name of operational efficiency. The gains, say the converted, are many, ranging from knowing whether workers have been 'held up' in the pub rather than in a traffic jam, to being able to quickly locate staff and reroute them if necessary. Not everybody is happy about being monitored, however, and civil rights group Liberty says the growth of tracking raises data privacy concerns...

Atomkraftwerke abschalten: Keine Atomwaffen für die Bundesrepublik

Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

02. Februar 2006

Gemeinsame Erklärung des stellvertretenden Parteivorsitzenden

Wolfgang Methling, der Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft

Umwelt-Energie-Verkehr und der Ökologischen Plattform bei der Linkspartei.PDS:

Es passt alles zusammen und ist nicht zufällig: Ruppert Scholz fordert für die Bundesrepublik die Verfügungsgewalt über Kernwaffen. CDU/CSU und leider auch Teile der SPD streben die Verlängerung der Laufzeiten von Atomkraftwerken an, befürworten sogar den Neubau. Die Linkspartei.PDS lehnt das strikt ab. Selbst nach dem vereinbarten Atomkonsens der Vorgängerregierung würde das letzte deutsche Atomkraftwerk erst 2021 abgeschaltet werden. Die Verlängerung der Laufzeiten wäre ein Weg zurück in die Vergangenheit. Die Furcht vor der Abhängigkeit Deutschlands von russischen Gas- und Öllieferungen ist nur ein Vorwand für die Durchsetzung der seit langem verfolgten Ziele. Wir sagen: Die Risiken bei der Gewinnung von Atomenergie sind zu groß, als dass man sie übergehen darf. Hinzu kommt das ungelöste Problem der Abfalllagerung und -beseitigung. Die Behauptung, Atomstrom sei frei vom Ausstoß von Klimagasen, entspricht ebenfalls nicht der Wahrheit. Die Brennelemente durchlaufen unzählige Produktionsschritte, bei denen jeweils erhebliche Mengen an Klimagasen anfallen. Ebenso wenig kann von stabilen günstigen Verbraucherpreisen ausgegangen werden. Seit 2000 vervierfachte sich der Uranpreis auf 36 Dollar pro Pfund. Und nicht zuletzt sind auch die Uranvorräte begrenzt. Was wir brauchen sind eine konsequente Politik und entsprechende Maßnahmen zur Energieeinsparung, zur Effizienzsteigerung und die strikte Ausrichtung auf erneuerbare Energien. Nur eine vollständige solare Energiewende in dezentralen Strukturen, wie sie die Linkspartei. PDS fordert, wird unsere Energieprobleme lösen. Deutschland hat in den vergangenen Jahren auf diesem Gebiet eine internationale Spitzenposition erlangt. Das dürfen wir nicht aufgeben.
