What to Do When Law and Politics Get Tangled?

Former Attorney General John Ashcroft had a standard spiel for new US attorneys: "You have to leave politics at the door to do this job properly." Maintaining that independence, without fear of repercussions, is the bedrock principle at stake in the controversy over the firings of eight US attorneys.

Congress: End the War

"Democrats should recognize that the time has come to use the full power accorded Congress in time of war: the power of the purse. As Senator Russ Feingold says, 'Some will claim that cutting off funding for the war would endanger our brave troops on the ground. Not true. The safety of our servicemen and women in Iraq is paramount, and we can and should end funding for the war without putting our troops in further danger,'" write the editors of The Nation.

The Ides of March 2003

Frank Rich writes, "Tomorrow night is the fourth anniversary of President Bush's prime-time address declaring the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In the broad sweep of history, four years is a nanosecond, but in America, where memories are congenitally short, it's an eternity. That's why a revisionist history of the White House's rush to war, much of it written by its initial cheerleaders, has already taken hold."

Pressure Builds Over Gonzales, Rove

At highly charged moments, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales can seem placid, passive - at times, just plain out of it. In the summer of 2002, high-level Bush administration officials met to debate secretly a delicate issue: how aggressively could the CIA interrogate terror suspects? While the lawyers from Justice, Defense and the vice president's office hotly debated definitions of torture (at times discussing specific interrogation techniques), Gonzales, who was then the White House counsel, sat by and said virtually nothing. The attorney general's behavior was typical, say administration officials who have worked with him.

From Shock and Awe to the "Surge" Without End

Four years ago this Tuesday, George Bush began his ill-fated Iraq campaign. Today's news that the US is sending an extra battalion to Baghdad will push troop levels to 160,000 - 10,000 more than at the time of the invasion.

Indentured Servants in America

By BOB HERBERT
NY Times Op-Ed

A must-read for anyone who favors an expansion of guest worker programs in the U.S. is a stunning new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center that details the widespread abuse of highly vulnerable, poverty-stricken workers in programs that already exist.

US-Marine fördert Projekt zur Entwicklung von Hochfrequenz-Waffen

...wird vorgeschlagen, den Gebrauch von ausgesendeter Hochfrequenz-Energie zu untersuchen, mit der der normale Prozess menschlichen Hörens und das Gleichgewicht gereizt und gestört werden kann. Der Fokus wird auf zwei Bereichen liegen: 1) Unterbrechung des Transduktionsprozesses, mit dem Geräusche und Position (abhängig von der Schwerkraft) in Botschaften übertragen werden, die vom Gehirn verarbeitet werden und 2) Unterbrechung des chemischen Prozesses, der die Arbeitsweise der Nervenzellen, die auf die Transduktionsmechanismen antworten, auf die unter 1) Bezug genommen wurde, aufrecht erhält. Die Unterbrechung eines oder beider Prozesse führt klinisch nachgewiesen zu völliger Desorientierung und Verwirrtheit. Ein weiterer Effekt würde ein extremer Bewegungsschwindel sein.“

Giving Aid and Comfort to the Enemy: the Plame Affair

Valerie Plame Wilson, whose career Karl Rove and Vice President Dick Cheney wanted destroyed in a fit of pique, was finally allowed to testify before Congress on Friday. Some in the blogosphere are arguing that the outing of Plame Wilson was an impeachable offense.

The Bush administration manoeuvres to unseat Iraqi government

Despite denials from Washington, there are growing signs that the Bush administration has issued threats to its puppet government in Baghdad to meet US-dictated “benchmarks” or face the consequences.

Permission to Speak Freely?

By Jason Miller

On behalf of fellow Information Clearing House contributing writers, ICH readers, and the multitude of people who still believe that human rights represent a cornerstone of civilization, I call upon you to cease and desist with your arbitrary violation of Tom Feeley's rights to "demonstrate one's opinions on all matters", free speech, and free press.

The stock market is about to crash

Velkomin to the United States of Foreclosure

By Mike Whitney

The stock market is about to crash. The only question is whether it will quickly drop down the elevator shaft or follow the jerky flight-path of a man pushed down a stairwell. Either way, the outcome will be the same; stocks will nose-dive, the dollar will plummet, and the bruised US economy will be splattered on the canvas like George Foreman in Rumble in the Jungle.

800 Milliarden Euro Schäden: worauf warten wir noch?

Der Klimawandel kostet die deutsche Volkswirtschaft bis 2015 etwa 800 Milliarden Dollar, hat das Deutsche Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung ausgerechnet.

Es ist fünf nach zwölf

20 % weniger Treibhausgase bis 2020 und 20 % Erneuerbare Energie in der EU - das ist doch ein gewaltiger Fortschritt! So werden jetzt viele Kollegen kommentieren. Und einige Wirtschaftsbosse werden gar stöhnen. Das geht gar nicht in so kurzer Zeit. Alles falsch! Es wird und muß noch viel mehr gehen. Die zunehmenden Katastrophen werden uns zwingen.

Alle können etwas tun

"Jeder und Jede ist verantwortlich für eine bessere Umwelt ... Durch das Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz kann in Deutschland auch jeder Geld sparen. Wer kein eigenes Haus für Solaranlagen hat, beteilige sich an Gemeinschaftsanlagen, die es immer mehr gibt." Interview von Eberhard Krauch mit Franz Alt.
