The Growing Toll Of Iraqi Civilian Deaths

By Dr. César Chelala

Despite all evidence, some political leaders continue to insist that the situation is improving, as though the brutal TV images of the war did not exist, as if it were a fantasy invented by evil spirits.

Military Forces Journalists to Delete Images of Civilian Killings

In the past day there has been wide media coverage of an official report on the slaying of Afghan civilians by US forces early last month. Gaining much less coverage are the report's comments on a nearly-forgotten aftermath of the apparent crimes: the US military's forced "deletion" of images taken by Associated Press cameramen and others.

Saarland: Landeselternvertretung Grundschulen fordert Messungen an Schulen, in denen funkvernetzte Datenverarbeitung (WLAN) zum Einsatz kommt

Da in Sachen WLAN an Schulen noch vieles unausgegoren sei, fordert der Vorsitzende der Gesamtlandeselternvertretung und der LEV-Grundschulen, Jörg Dammann, Messungen in denjenigen saarländischen Schulen, in denen WLAN benutzt wird. Schließlich, so Dammann, müssten auch die Eltern über das Schulforum zu dieser Problematik einbezogen werden. Zugleich erneuert die LEV-Grundschulen ihre Forderung, Mobilfunkantennen in der näheren Umgebung von Grundschulen und Kindergärten zu entfernen.

Court rulings on environment go against Bush administration

Informant: binstock

Global Warming Challenges the Unitary Executive

Kelpie Wilson writes: "On April 2, 2007 the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of the State of Massachusetts in the landmark global warming case, Massachusetts v. EPA. Environmentalists were pleased that the high court ruled on the merits of the case, agreeing that carbon dioxide meets the definition of a pollutant and that the EPA has run out of excuses for not regulating it. But some legal scholars were even more gratified by another aspect of the case, the court's ruling on the right of the plaintiffs to sue, known as their 'standing.'"

Panic before deadly mobile phone-virus



It doesn't matter what rock at the White House we turn over. There's nasty stuff under them all. And now just as the subpoenas of accountability are finally starting to fly, they tell us that millions of White House emails, required to be preserved and archived by federal law, have up and disappeared. Or so they now claim. And isn't this yet ANOTHER admission of administration law breaking.

Was it not enough that they lied us into a war that has killed more of our citizens than 9/11 and as many as a million in foreign countries? Was it not enough to conduct illegal wiretapping of our personal communications, while simultaneously swearing they were doing no such thing? Was jeopardizing our national security by outing a key figure in tracking down the REAL weapons of mass destruction, was that not enough? Was an official government policy of torture, to our shame around the world, not enough?

It's just one high crime after another, and either the president is totally not in charge of anything, in which case he should be impeached for that dereliction alone, or all this pipes right through Karl Rove into the Oval office. And whether Cheney is in charge of everything or just half the treason, he's got to go to.

Rosie O'Donnell was speaking for a lot of people when she exclaimed recently, "What do you have to do to get impeached in this country?" But what will make it really happen is when each one of us speaks for ourselves, and we contact our members of Congress to finally demand Constitutional responsibility, and keep doing it again and again.


We don't believe for one second that the Bush administration hasn't now on top of everything else totally corrupted our federal justice system by requiring selective and wrongful prosecutions of members of the other party as a CONDITION for continued employment as an attorney general. The corruption goes completely to the core of everything our country is supposed to stand for. The last time we checked the Pledge of Allegiance ended with the words "justice for all". You got that, George? ALL! And that means you don't just prosecute non-Bushies and let yourself and your cronies off the hook.

But of course he doesn't get it. He's never going to get it. Instead Bush is going even deeper into tantrum and denial mode, demanding even more and more power to grossly abuse, without any accountability whatsoever, as if the results of the last election had not even taken place. They think they're just going to plow ahead with new proposed laws to expand domestic surveillance even further, as if all those rubber stamping Senators voted out in November were still around.

He's not going to stop on his own folks. He's incorrigible. And the only force that can stop him is the pressure of public opinion, coming from our individual voices to our members of Congress, to call on them to honor the Constitution and do what should have been done years ago already. We can't wait until 2008 to be rid of them. Impeach the president and vice president now.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.
