Gitmo Detainess Are Still Stuck Down There

The Bush administration this February won a court victory denying habeas corpus to alien detainees. Now, it is trying to deny the detainees the effective assistance of counsel. None of this should come as a surprise. Ever since President George W. Bush declared his "war on terror" in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, he has claimed unlimited and unlimitable power under the commander-in-chief provisions of Article II of the Constitution. Since then, government lawyers have persisted in trying to prevent any judicial scrutiny of the president's actions in conducting this "war."

Handystrahlung: Infos für Kinder gefordert

"Eine Studie hat gezeigt, dass die Bevölkerung ungenügend über die Gefahren von Handystrahlen informiert ist.

Das ist bedenklich", sagt die Berner SP-Großrätin Danielle Lemann. Mit einem politischen Vorstoß wollte sie deshalb den Kanton dazu verpflichten, Kinder und Jugendliche über die gefährliche Strahlung aufzuklären. Der Regierungsrat hat ihre Forderung jetzt aber abgelehnt. Begründung: Das Informieren der Bevölkerung sei Aufgabe des Bundesamts für Gesundheit (BAG).

Für Lemann ist dies unverständlich: "Der Bund macht nichts." Er stelle zwar Infos auf der Website des BAG zur Verfügung, doch würden diese kaum genutzt. Auch mit dem Vorhaben der Regierung, das Anliegen allenfalls im neuen Lehrplan zu berücksichtigen, lässt sie sich nicht abspeisen. "Die Information ist Aufgabe des Kantons." (sab)

The Ongoing Iraq Intel Fraud

"Bush has never stopped making statements about the Iraq War that are untrue, illogical or irrelevant. Yet, the Washington press corps remains almost as lax today about holding Bush accountable as it was in 2002 and 2003. So, when Bush mocks Democratic "politicians in Washington" who supposedly seek to substitute their judgments for those of experienced commanders on the ground, the national news media stays silent on Bush's hypocrisy. It's almost never mentioned that he was the Washington politician in December who overruled the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the two top generals in Iraq on the escalation of the war," says Robert Parry.

Stress on Troops Adds to US Hurdles in Iraq

The detailed mental health survey of troops in Iraq released by the Pentagon on Friday highlights a growing worry for the United States as it struggles to bring order to Baghdad: the high level of combat stress suffered during lengthy and repeated tours. The report suggested that extended tours and multiple deployments, among other policy decisions, could escalate anger and increase the likelihood that soldiers or marines lash out at civilians, or defy military ethics.

With New Clout, Antiwar Groups Push Democrats

Over the last four months, the Iraq deliberations in Congress have lurched from a purely symbolic resolution rebuking the president's strategy to timetables for the withdrawal of American troops. Behind the scenes, an elaborate political operation, organized by a coalition of antiwar groups and fine-tuned to wrestle members of Congress into place one by one, has helped nudge the debate forward.

Town rejects mast to save bees after IoS report

Here are the letters from the IoS:-

Letters

Wi-Fi sets the sparks flying

Instead of comparing time on a mobile phone with Wi-Fi use, it is more relevant to compare a full day in a class-room with Wi-Fi access points (transmitters) with sitting in the main beam from a phone mast. People are unaware that the transmissions are continuous whether or not the laptops are being used. We are talking of day long whole-body exposure not short-term exposure directed to the head, as with a mobile phone. Surely there must be some ethical guidelines that are being broken here, since parents have not given their consent for their children to be irradiated?

Sue Wright
LONDON N2



Dr Campbell is tight (Letters, 29 April). There are not "thousands of scientific articles [showing] the adverse effects of Wi-Fi radios". I never said that I said that to the best of my knowledge there are no published scientific papers regarding possible adverse health effects of Wi-Fi systems or their safety. But there are thousands of reports going back to the 1940s, demonstrating biological and medical effects of the kind of microwaves and power-frequent magnetic fields used for Wi-Fi I have never mentioned nuclear radiation, and internal lighting and TV fields do have biological side-effects.

Re: Town rejects mast to save bees after IoS report

This was supported yesterday by Ferdinand Ruzicka, emeritus professor at the University of Vienna. He revealed that two-thirds of the beekeepers he surveyed who had a mobile phone mast within 300m had suffered "unexplained colony collapse". Professor Ruzicka believes the radiation may increase the insects' vulnerability to disease.

It is a wonder that none of these so-called experts have ever suspected that the radiation "May Increase A Human Being's Vulnerability to Disease" - in spite of the fact that there are about 80 immune-system disorders today that we didn't have 20 years ago. Well, at least the pharmaceutical companies are raking it in. "If it is good for the economy, then it must be good." NOT!

But Councillor Barry Taylor, the chairman, said the threat to bees was "an important issue" and permission for masts should be refused unless they could be "proved" to be safe for the insects.

And previously the threat to human beings was not apparently "An Important Enough Issue and Permission for Masts Were NOT Refused Until They Could Have Been 'Proven' Safe (which they can't by the way) for Humans." Tell this to all the mothers and fathers out there with children suffering with leukemia, brain tumors, and autism. And tell this to all the m... b... out there paying the cell phone companies to harm us all - and just because they are unconscious and it is "convenient."
