Lawmakers Squabble Over Anti-Terrorism Bill

Senators left town Friday with little to show for a week of debate on a massive anti-terrorism bill and squabbling over whether to let federal airport screeners join unions and risk a veto of a Homeland Security bill by President Bush.

Military Faces Growing Ranks of Bereaved

Over the past fifteen years, America's armed forces have taken huge strides to retain married service members - improving schools, health programs and child care. But now, as never before in this family-embracing era, the military is struggling with the toughest home-front problem of all: Doing right by the often outspoken and ever-growing ranks of the bereaved.

Bring Back the Politics of Personal Destruction

"If you had to put a date on when the Iraq war did in the Bush administration," says Frank Rich,"it would be late summer 2005. That's when the bungled federal response to Hurricane Katrina re-enacted the White House bungling of the war, this time with Americans as the principal victims. Now this pattern is repeating itself: a searing re-enactment of the Iraq war's lethal mismanagement is playing out on the home front, again with potentially grave political consequences."

The Must-Do List

The New York Times writes: "The Bush administration's assault on some of the founding principles of American democracy marches onward despite the Democratic victory in the 2006 elections. The new Democratic majorities in Congress can block the sort of noxious measures that the Republican majority rubber-stamped. But preventing new assaults on civil liberties is not nearly enough."

Khaled El-Masri: I Am Not a State Secret

Khaled El-Masri was mistaken for a terrorist and wrongfully imprisoned by the CIA in Afghanistan four years ago, enduring severe beatings. In a first-person account of his ordeal, he writes, "What I want ... is a public acknowledgment from the US government that I was innocent, a mistaken victim of its rendition program, and an apology for what I was forced to endure. Without this vindication, it has been impossible for me to return to a normal life."

Die Wahrheit über Mobilfunk

Seit Einführung der Mobilfunk-Technologie wird die Bevölkerung durch willkürliche Grenzwertfestlegungen der WHO (Weltgesundheitsorganisation) zum Narren gehalten. Das gleiche passiert mit den viel gelobten Salzburger Vorsorgewerten die ohnehin durch die UMTS Technologie nie eingehalten werden können (technisch nicht machbar).

U.S. claims on North Korea come under scrutiny

The Bush administration, which used some false and exaggerated intelligence to make its case for invading Iraq, also may have inflated some of its allegations against North Korea to justify a hard-line policy toward the Stalinist regime.

By Scott Ritter

Run, Hillary, run. But your race towards the White House will never outpace the hypocrisy and duplicity inherent in your decision to vote for war in Iraq.

America on its Knees Before Tyranny

By Richard Mynick

Today's America is no democracy -- it's a degenerating tyranny, disfigured by its military-industrial-governmental cancer. Our people are increasingly ashamed and terrified of their government, and rightly so, because we have no control over it, and it's become a deceitful monstrous danger to us and to the health of the planet.

Too much blood: on being the subjects of a military economy

By Matt Taibbi

A country that feeds itself through the manufacture of war technology is bound to view peace, nonviolence and mercy as seditious concepts. It will create policies first and then people to fit its machines, finding wars to fight and creating killers to fight them.

How Far is Iran from the Bomb?

Former CIA analyst

That was one of the key questions asked of newly confirmed Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell at a Senate Armed Forces Committee hearing on Tuesday.

Despite the billions that American taxpayers have sunk into improving U.S. intelligence, we can only guess."
