Fascinating insight into the United States's failed counter-Islamist-terrorism strategy

Alain Chouet Interview With Le Monde

An April 16 Le Monde article about what the French secret services knew before 9/11 (the translation of which was published on Truthout) included quotations from former French Security Intelligence Director Alain Chouet. Today, we publish the full text of the interview he gave to Le Monde as posted on his web site: It simultaneously contradicts one major conclusion suggested by Le Monde and provides fascinating insight into the United States's failed counter-Islamist-terrorism strategy.

Senate Readies No-Confidence Vote in Bid to Oust Gonzales

The US Senate was set to take the almost unprecedented move of a no-confidence vote on US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, ramping up pressure on President George W. Bush to sack his unpopular longtime aide.

Al Gore Has Big Plans

Six years after the Supreme Court declared him the loser of a presidential race that seemed his for the taking, Al Gore has attained what you can only call prophetic status; And he has done so by acting as he could not, or would not, as a candidate - saying precisely what he believes, and saying it with clarity, passion, intellectual mastery and even, sometimes, wit. Everywhere he goes, people urge him, almost beg him, to run for the presidency.

Missing Rove Emails Point to Violation of Records Act

Jason Leopold and Matt Renner report: "The story has deja vu written all over it as Rove finds himself smack in the middle of the latest high-profile scandal plaguing the White House - the apparent politically motivated firings of nine US attorneys last year. Once again, lawmakers are doing their darnedest to obtain copies of Rove's emails linking him directly to the US attorney scandal, and once again serious questions are being raised about the lengths to which Gonzales, as head of the Justice Department, and the Bush administration are willing to go to insulate Rove."

Genmais ist illegal

Es ist unglaublich: Auf zweieinhalbtausend Hektar wächt in diesem Jahr Monsantos Genmais Mon810 der Blüte entgegen. Ein Genmais, dessen Folgewirkungen inzwischen selbst Minister Seehofer als gefährlich einstuft. Derselbe Minister verbot Ende April das Inverkehrbringen des Gentech-Saatgutes. Damit kam er zu spät und wusste es: Der Bt-Mais war bereits überall in der Erde. Dort wächst er nun. Wir machen in den nächsten Wochen verstärkt Kampagnenarbeit dagegen. Es lohnt sich, öfter auf unserer Homepage vorbei zu schauen: //www.gendreck-weg.de . Schon bald gibt es schöne Materialien wie Postkarten, Aufkleber und vor allem das Aktionspaket für alle, die bei ihrer örtlichen Polizeidienststelle eine Anzeige gegen Monsanto und den Genmaisanbau abgeben möchten. Freche "Baustellenschilder" mit der Aufschrift "Anbau von illegalem Genmais - Kinder haften für ihre Eltern!" können bei uns bestellt und an Genmaisfeldern (am besten nach der Beweismittelentnahme) aufgestellt werden. Am Freitag, den 13. Juli wird in der taz unsere Beilage zu finden sein: "Sense! - Illegalen Genmais stoppen!" Darin informieren wir über Feldbefreiungen, Horst Seehofers halbherziges Verbot und kreative Gegenmaßnahmen.

Last Stand for American Sovereignty

by Cliff Kincaid

Those concerned about our national sovereignty had better figure out a way to get some media attention on this subject rather quickly because we are losing our sovereignty on many fronts. From the North American Union to the Law of the Sea Treaty to the illegal alien amnesty bill, America as we know it is fading fast. The sad irony is that all of this is happening under the auspices of a supposed conservative Republican President......

The Ron Paul Rebellion

by Professor Steven Yates

This is not simply a clash between “left” and “right,” or between “liberal” and “conservative.” We may be approaching a major dust-up between those who want freedom and those who want power, between those who believe society must be aggressively centralized and those who wish to see power dispersed. We may see a struggle between those who want policies that allow the common man to live as he sees fit if he isn’t bothering anyone else, and a cadre of oligarchs who view the world as theirs, and who see themselves as unaccountable.

Ron Paul & the GOP: I Told You So

I told you so. The two Republican debates (MSNBC and FOX [Faux] News) and the fallout proves my point exactly. It is truly remarkable to see the vicious attacks against Congressman Ron Paul by his own party. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, an apparent relative of Elmer Fudd, stated the day after the FOX {Faux} debate that Ron Paul not only shouldn't be allowed to participate in future debates, but he shouldn't be allowed in the GOP!......

Oxfam Calls for End to US Control Over Appointment of World Bank President

Oxfam has called for an end to America's control over the appointment of the president of the World Bank, following Paul Wolfowitz's long-awaited resignation. "The US and other rich countries must now show that they are serious about good governance by reforming the recruitment process to allow the next head of the bank to be appointed on merit and commitment to alleviate poverty, rather than being the choice of the American president," said Barbara Stocking, director of Oxfam.

Why This Scandal Matters

"As Monica Goodling, a key player in the United States attorney scandal, prepares to testify before Congress on Wednesday, the administration's strategy is clear. It has offered up implausible excuses, hidden the most damaging evidence and feigned memory lapses, while hoping that the public's attention moves on. But this scandal is too important for the public or Congress to move on. This story should not end until Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is gone, and the serious damage that has been done to the Justice Department is repaired," writes The New York Times.

New energy for America

Tom Paine

05/18/07

Confronted with the Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina, rising gas prices and the ‘inconvenient truth’ of global warming, Americans are looking for leadership on energy independence and the threat posed by catastrophic climate change. Even George Bush, Big Oil’s pocketed president, now pays lip service to the need to end our ‘addiction to oil.’ But with his policies making us more, not less, dependent on foreign oil, energy will be at the center of the 2008 campaign. The question is whether the presidential candidates have caught up with the voters. … A staggering 79 percent believe shifting to alternative energy sources will help the economy and create, not cost, jobs. Voters think the United States is falling behind other countries, and they want government to lead...

Fred On Everything

05/20/07

Something is wrong with the United States. I think most of us have noticed it. There is a mortal rot in the country, made manifest by many little rots that are hard to integrate mentally yet are, I think, somehow related. The change is grave, accelerating, probably irreversible, and fascinating. Things are not as they were. … The Constitution really is going away, or has gone. It never did work as well as it should have, but few things human ever do. Habeas corpus is dead, right to an attorney, congressional right to declare war — it’s not even worth listing the list. Joe iPod in the burbs doesn’t care because it doesn’t affect him, yet. Git them Hay-rabs, ain’t no draft, plenty sushi. Urg. … The increasing, detailed, intrusive regulation of life, the national desire for control, control, control. Everything is the business of some form of government. … What isn’t controlled by government is controlled by the crypto-vindictive mob rule of political correctness. This wasn’t always in the American character. Add the continuing presence of police in the schools, the arrest in handcuffs of children of seven, the expulsions for drawing a picture of a soldier with a gun. Something very twisted is going on...

Have we raised a generation of narcissists?

Reason
by Steve Chapman

05/21/07

It’s a hoot to hear modern kids described as self-indulgent by the generation that created its own culture out of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. Talk about a sense of entitlement: When the baby boomers came along, they (we) got the voting age lowered for their benefit. They also demanded that the drinking age be lowered, and it was — only to be raised once they were safely into adulthood. Narcissism? Not for nothing were boomers dubbed the ‘Me Generation.’ Most of the grousing is just what every new crop of kids hears from its elders, who forget that when they were young, they were equally infuriating. People who came of age during the Great Depression and World War II are known as the ‘Greatest Generation,’ but their parents didn’t call them that when they were going through puberty. ‘Bye Bye Birdie,’ the musical that asked the question, ‘What’s the matter with kids these days?’ debuted during the Eisenhower administration...

The war in Iraq remains the issue of greatest importance to voters. In Paul and Giuliani we have two candidates for a major party’s nomination whose views on the matter couldn’t be farther apart and whose disagreement has become perhaps the most talked-about event to date of the 2008 Presidential race. It’s thus a natural time for a real debate, a structured intellectual dispute over an issue as opposed to a soundbite-generating Q and A session. The resolution: The United States should adopt a noninterventionist foreign policy. Paul takes affirmative, Giuliani takes negative...

The Ron Paul Effect

Up until now, the GOP has been living in a bubble, along with the president, denying that we were losing, and that we got ourselves into an awful mess: the ‘good news,’ they claimed, wasn’t being reported, on account of the media’s alleged ‘antiwar bias.’ That, at least, is what Kincaid seemed to sincerely believe when we debated on MSNBC two years ago. Today, however, he seems ready to acknowledge that there is a problem and that the fault isn’t to be found with the media, or with someone like Ron Paul who dares to say that the emperor has no clothes, but with his fellow conservatives. This is progress, and Paul’s candidacy is the catalyst...

The foreign policy of Ron Paul

LewRockwell.Com
by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

05/21/07

Ron Paul has always believed that foreign and domestic policy should be conducted according to the same principles. Government should be restrained from intervening at home or abroad because its actions fail to achieve their stated aims, create more harm than good, shrink the liberty of the people, and violate rights. Does that proposition seem radical? Outlandish or far-flung? Once you hear it stated, it makes perfect sense that there is no sharp distinction between the principles of domestic and foreign policy. They are part of the same analytical fabric. What would be inconsistent would be to favor activist government at home but restraint abroad, or the reverse: restraint at home and activism abroad. Government unleashed behaves in its own interests, and will not restrict itself in any area of life. It must be curbed in all areas of life lest freedom suffer...

Dollar buying ever less of world’s goods

It’s like a summer movie: the incredible shrinking dollar. Since the beginning of the year, the buck has shrunk 5 percent –- the equivalent of a 20 percent annual decline -– compared with the pound and the euro. But the shriveling value of the dollar may eventually help solve one of the most intractable US economic problems: the enormous trade deficit, which hit $63.9 billion in March, the highest level since September of last year. Already, giant European companies are taking advantage of their strong currency by announcing huge investments in the United States. And US exporters such as Boeing and Caterpillar are getting an order boost as the lower-valued dollar allows them to undercut their competition...

Demonstrationsverbot gegen den G8-Gipfel ist eine eklatante Verletzung des Grundrechts auf Protest

Pressemitteilung des Republikanischen Anwältinnen- und Anwältevereins vom 18.5.07 //www.rav.de/news.php


Die Polizeidirektion Rostock - nicht die Demonstrierenden - fügen dem Ansehen der Bundesrepublik Deutschland schweren Schaden zu

„Am 16. Mai 2007 hat die Polizeidirektion Rostock eine Allgemeinverfügung erlassen, mit der das Versammlungsrecht "aus Anlass des G-8-Gipfeltreffens in Heiligendamm" räumlich und zeitlich "beschränkt" wird. (…) Einer solchen vorauseilenden Verbotsverfügung müssten gegenwärtige, konkrete Erkenntnisse über eine unmittelbare Gefährdung anderer hochrangiger Rechtsgüter zu Grunde liegen. Alle Vermutungen sprechen dagegen, dass solche Erkenntnisse vorliegen. Auch nach den bisherigen Aussagen der Polizei geht man von einem friedlichen Protest aus. Ihre nun die Allgemeinverfügung begründenden Erkenntnisse macht die Polizei jedoch der Öffentlichkeit nicht zugänglich. Die Begründung kann nach dem Willen der Polizei nur in der Polizeidirektion Rostock eingesehen werden. Ein Pressesprecher versuchte dies telefonisch damit zu erklären, dass die meisten BürgerInnen rund um Rostock keinen Internet-Zugang haben…“ Presseerklärung des Grundrechtekomitees vom 17.05.2007 //www.grundrechtekomitee.de/ub_showarticle.php?articleID=234


Vorsicht bei der Internetrecherche? Die Hausdurchsuchungen bei Kritikern des G8-Gipfels wurden unter anderem mit Suchbegriffen bei der Internetrecherche begründet.

„Heute schon nach "Dussmann" gegoogelt? Nach "Heiligendamm"? Nach "Irak"? Oder nach "Hitler" ohne "Guido Knopp?" Wie jetzt ans Licht kam, reicht so etwas potentiell für eine Hausdurchsuchung. Bisher muss noch eine "Internetüberwachung" angeordnet werden, damit Behörden wissen, wer was googelt. Aber nach der Umsetzung der Vorratsdatenspeicherung droht die Begründung für eine Hausdurchsuchung bei jedem Bürger mit Internetanschluss zur reinen Formalie zu werden.

„Fast tausend Polizeibeamte durchsuchen in einer konzertierten Aktion etwa vierzig politische Projekte und Wohnungen in mehreren Teilen des Landes, auch ganz private Bereiche. Sie beschlagnahmen Computer, Datenträger und Unterlagen. Obwohl es zu keinen Verhaftungen kommt, weiß ein Nachrichtenmagazin wenige Tage später – ohne Nennung amtlicher Gewährsleute – zu berichten, es seien Wecker, andere Uhren, Drähte und China-Kracher gefunden worden. Dies könnten fast Szenen aus Spielfilmen wie "V For Vendetta" oder "Children Of Men" sein.

Ein Kurzsatz, den Hamburgs Polizeipräsident Werner Jantosch und Innensenator Udo Nagel (Parteilos) bei keiner Gelegenheit auslassen, wenn es um Proteste gegen den bevorstehenden G8-Gipfel im nahen Ostseebad Heiligendamm und den so genannten "Asia-Europe-Meeting" (Asem) in Hamburg geht. "Mit Krawallmachern werden wir nicht debattieren", sagt der Polizei-Boss. Was Jantosch damit meint, ist jetzt konkret: Neben dem Demonstrationsverbot in Heiligendamm soll auch der G8-Gipfel-Protest am Pfingstmontag aus der Hamburger City verbannt werden…“ Artikel von Kai von Appen in der taz vom 19.05.2007 //www.taz.de/dx/2007/05/19/a0298.1/text


Ich glotz G-8-TV

„Ein anderes Fernsehen ist möglich: Ab Ende Mai bietet die Videoplattform G-8-TV alternative Nachrichten rund ums Gipfeltreffen in Heiligendamm. Sie gehören zu den G-8-Gipfeltreffen schon fast genauso dazu wie die Aufnahmen von den acht wehenden Fahnen über dem Tagungsort: die Bilder von den massiven Protesten gegen das Politikerstelldichein. Doch die Inhalte der GipfelgegnerInnen kommen in den Medien meist nur am Rande vor. Das will ein Netzwerk unabhängiger Video- und FilmemacherInnen nun ändern. Im Rahmen der Gipfelproteste sollen über die Internetplattform g8-tv.org täglich mehrere unabhängig erstellte Berichte in verschiedenen Sprachen um die Welt geschickt werden. "Uns geht es nicht um die sensationelle Darstellung von Ausschreitungen, sondern wir die wollen die Möglichkeit nutzen, inhaltlicher Kritik an der Politik der G-8-Staaten eine größere Öffentlichkeit zu verschaffen", heißt es in dem Selbstverständnis des Netzwerkes…“ Artikel von Peter Nowack in der taz vom 19.05.2007 //www.taz.de/dx/2007/05/19/a0237.1/text

Juni, zu einer internationalen Großdemonstration in Rostock aufruft. "Die Demo wird ein buntes und friedliches Bild bieten und gemeinsamer Ausdruck aller an den G8-Protesten beteiligten Strömungen und Organisationen sein", sagte Werner Rätz vom globalisierungskritischen Netzwerk Attac am Dienstag in Berlin. Obwohl der Weg nach Rostock weit und die Fahrt beschwerlich sei, rechnen die Veranstalter dennoch mit vielen Teilnehmern. Die Demonstration richtet sich gegen die - nach Auffassung der Veranstalter - "agressive" Wirtschaftspolitik der G8.

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

23. Mai 2007

Wer Wind sät, wird Sturm ernten!

Zu der jetzt bekannt gewordenen Praxis, Geruchsproben von G8-Kritikern zu nehmen, erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katina Schubert:

Deutschland präsentiert sich vor dem G8-Gipfel als Überwachungsstaat Wer Geruchsproben von G 8-Kritikerinnen und Kritikern nimmt, um ihnen im Bedarfsfall Polizeihunde auf den Hals zu hetzen, praktiziert Methoden des Polizeistaates. Wir fordern, dies umgehend einzustellen und bereits erhobene Geruchsproben sofort zu vernichten. Damit führt die Polizei aus, was Bundesinnenminister Schäuble seit Monaten als Sicherheitsdoktrin favorisiert. Wir fordern die Bundesregierung auf, dem Grundgesetz und den darin verankerten Grund- und Freiheitsrechten wieder Geltung zu verschaffen. Die Demonstrationsfreiheit ist ein hohes demokratisches Gut. Bundeskanzlerin Merkel hat dieses in der vergangenen Woche in Russland zu Recht eingeklagt.

Demonstrationsfreiheit hat auch in Deutschland ohne Einschränkung zu gelten, auch am Ort des G 8-Gipfel-Geschehens und ohne Versuche, potentielle Demonstrantinnen und Demonstranten einzuschüchtern oder unter den Generalverdacht des Terrorismus zu stellen. Die Hysterie der Sicherheitsbehörden und der Bundesregierung im Vorfeld des Gipfels versucht genau dies, sie überziehen G8-KritikerInnen mit Repressionen. Das wird vor allem dazu führen, dass die Mobilisierung steigt. Denn: Wer Wind sät, wird Sturm ernten! Die Demonstration am 2. Juni in Rostock und die Aktionen an den folgenden Tagen werden nicht nur Ausdruck der Kritik an der Politik der G8 sein, sie werden auch Demonstrationen für die Grund- und Freiheitsrechte und gegen die Polizeistaatsmethoden der Bundesregierung sein.

Schnüffel-Attacke auf G8-Gegner

Wie jetzt bekannt wurde, hatte die Bundesanwaltschaft die Polizei vor zwei Wochen bei den bundesweiten Razzien gegen Globalisierungsgegner im Vorfeld des G8-Gipfels im Juni in Heiligendamm in mehreren Fällen mit der Entnahme von Körpergeruchsproben beauftragt. Dies hat breite Empörung ausgelöst. "Eine solche Praxis erinnert mich an Stasi-Methoden", sagte Bundestags-Vizepräsident Wolfgang Thierse (SPD). Bundesinnenminister Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU) und die Generalbundesanwaltschaft verteidigten das Vorgehen der Polizei. Amnesty international beklagte eine "Politik der Angst" und forderte die Bundesregierung zur Wahrung der Demonstrationsfreiheit auf. //www.ngo-online.de/ganze_nachricht.php?H=N&Nr=15986

Der Gipfel des Militarismus und unsere Grundrechte werden immer mehr beschnitten

„Ohne Abstimmung im Bundestag wird die angebliche „Parlamentsarmee“ in ein weiteres Land zu einem Kampfeinsatz entsandt: Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Der verfassungswidrige Einsatz im Innern anlässlich des G8-Gipfels kostet die Steuerzahler lt. Pressemeldungen zehn Millionen Euro - zusätzlich zu einem gewaltigen Rüstungsetat. Und er kostet Freiheitsrechte der Bürger. Die Gewerkschaften, einst führend im Kampf gegen die Notstandsgesetze und die Bundeswehreinsätze im Innern, sie schweigen – oder beteiligen sich wie die Polizeigewerkschaft führend an der Hysterie gegen Demonstranten…“ Artikel von Ulrich Sander vom 15.05.07 bei der Vereinung der Verfolgten des Naziregimes - Bund der Antifschistinnen und Antifaschisten (VVN - BdA) - Nordrhein-Westfalen //www.nrw.vvn-bda.de/texte/0328_gipfel.htm

Stasivorwürfe nach Briefkontrollen des Staatsschutzes

Die Hamburger Polizei gerät nach der systematischen Kontrolle von Briefsendungen von G8-Gegnern ins Kreuzfeuer der Kritik. Hamburgs Polizeipräsident Werner Jantosch bestätigte am 25. Mai, dass der Staatsschutz des Landeskriminalamtes in den vergangenen Tagen im Zusammenhang mit der Fahndung nach Gegnern des Gipfels in Heiligendamm auf Grundlage eines richterlichen Beschlusses Postsendungen beschlagnahmt hatte. Die für den Postdienst zuständigen Dienstleistungsgewerkschaft Ver.di verglich das Vorgehen mit den Methoden der früheren DDR-Staatssicherheit. Jantosch bezeichnete dies als "starken Tobak". Ein Sprecher der Deutschen Post AG sagte, Staatschutzbeamte hätten in dieser Woche drei Tage lang im Briefzentrum Mitte im Stadtteil Altona Postsendungen durchsucht.

The large corporations that so generously fund the Think Tank will pleased with this latest fiction, the strategist muses as he inserts her virulent words into his email and clicks "send". He is confident that corporate contributions will flow as long as the propaganda flows.

HELP RESCUE CAGED MOON BEARS

Please sign this petition to be sent to the Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean Governments.

Thousands of Moon Bears across China and Vietnam are imprisoned in cages no bigger than their own bodies enduring the agony of different bile extraction methods. Their suffering may continue for 20 years. Bear bile used in traditional Chinese medicine can easily be replaced by herbal or synthetic alternatives, which are cheaper and equally effective. Due to excessive bear bile production bear farmers are constantly trying to find new products to add bear bile to, such as shampoos, beers and various tonics.

In South Korea it has been illegal to extract bile from living bears since 1992. However, there are still bear farms. Bears over the age of 10 can be legally slaughtered (usually in front of the customers) for their bile.

Please sign the petition and ask your friends and family members to sign it too.

This petition is submitted by the Finnish Support Group for Bear Rescue in Asia. The group supports Animals Asia Foundation that rescues bears from bear bile farms.

Now, that the Chair of the HPA has openly challenged the WHO and the government, we need to act quickly to harness this momentum.
Can we all write to our MPs and ask them to push for immediate action?

BBC Panorama vote

So far 40,000 people have voted if they think wifi is safe its slightly more don't than do Add your votes!!

The nay sayers

Do you want to know who the 'scientists' are who are doing the criticising?

Prof Malcolm Sperrin Director of medical physics and clinical engineering, Royal Berkshire NHS Trust. Could not find anything other than this link with the notorious Science Media Centre //www.sciencemediacentre.org/press_releases/07-05-10_bmjctscans.htm
So, that's where the Guardian and the BBC get their scientists from.

Prof Will J Stewart UCL and University of Southampton //www.theiet.org/publicaffairs/sectorpanels/communications/stewart.cfm
Member of The Institution of Engineering and Technology, Communication Sector Panel he is also a member of the IEEE Previously chief scientist at Marconi - a large Telecoms firm. Here is a link to some of the staff he was working on at Marconi //www.iop.org/activity/policy/Events/Seminars/file_3502.doc

Dr Paddy Regan University of Surrey, Guildford Lecturer in nuclear and radiation physics. His expertise is clearly in the ionising part of the spectrum. Why they wheel him out to comment on Wi-Fi is a mystery to me. //www.ph.surrey.ac.uk/cnrp/profiles/academics?s_id=21

Yes, he is the same Prof David Coggan indeed. He is a member of the Medical Research Council Epidemiology He seems to always be wheeled out when it comes to minimising the potential health effects of any pollutant. Last year it was antimony in plastic water bottles (see here //www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/health/dietfitness.html?in_article_id=379624&in_page_id=1798 A few years back, it was pesticides. He was the Chairman of the Independent Advisory Committee on Pesticides //news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/1893611.stm current members of this body are listed here //www.pesticides.gov.uk/acp.asp?id=2060
He was also involved in at least one study financed by the MTHR in a supervisory role //www.mthr.org.uk/research_projects/mthr_funded_projects/cartwright.htm

Points of View, Panorama

I did fire out numerous comments yesterday on various sites but from memory I think it was the following:

The Panorama programme was an excellent, truthful expose of the dangers of this harmful technology.

"WiFi emissions are similar to Mobile Phone Mast emissions. They have very similar carrier frequencies and pulsed digital amplitude modulation. The signal strength in a classroom with 15 WiFi enabled laptops will be very similar to the signal strength you would receive from a mobile phone mast 80 to 150 metres away. There is now considerable research associating serious health effects with living near a phone mast. Indeed the ill health and cancer clusters in the vicinity of phone masts are increasing at an ever alarming rate. If living near to mobile phone masts poses a health risk, then why are we actively putting wireless devices in schools that fill the classrooms with similar levels of pulsing microwave radiation"?

An Opinion

As we all know there has been a considerable amount of gerrymandering in respect of the Panorama programme on WiFi in schools transmitted on Monday.

First we had various self-important people being wheeled out of their caves to denigrate the programme before it was aired - Professor Malcolm Sperrin (Director of Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering, Royal Berkshire NHS Trust), Professor Will J Stewart (Royal Academy of Engineering, University of Southampton and previously chief scientist with Marconi), Dr Paddy Regan (Centre for Nuclear Radiation and Physics), Professor David Coggan (Medical Research Council) and Mr Bill Thompson, to name but a few - all less than celebrated individuals but well-known when it comes to denigrating fears about emfs and the effects thereof. Afterwards, the Guardian went into overdrive to present the programme in the worst possible light, the voting system on the BBC's Panorama web page appeared to be mendaciously in favour of those who consider there to be no problem and the corporation's website 'Have Your Say' clearly decided not to accept reasoned comment from honest, and scientifically qualified, people who wrote in questioning WiFi safety. But none of this really matters.

Whatever you might think of him, Professor Sir William Stewart is Chairman of the Health Protection Agency (which, of course, incorporates the Radiological Protection Division). As Chairman of the NRPB, he was responsible for the report by the Independent Expert Group on Mobile Phones (IEGMP) issued in 2000, since known as the 'Stewart Report', and it was on his watch that the Advisory Group on Non-Ionising Radiation (AGNIR) produced a follow-up appraisal issued in January 2005. His comments when interviewed on the programme:

Stewart (on the results of research). "We found firstly that there may be changes in cognitive functions; secondly that there may be cancer induction and, thirdly, some molecular biological changes."

Stewart (when confronted with Sylvia Wilson who is electro-magnetically hypersensitive). "I sympathise with Sylvia because I suspect a problem. We do not know. It might not be worth worrying about. Or (people like her) might by the human canaries of the future".

Interviewer "The World Health Organisation says categorically that there are no adverse health effect from low-level long term exposure. Is that an accurate reflection?"

Stewart "I think they are wrong."

Interviewer "Why do you think it?"

Stewart "It is not an accurate assessment."

The interviewer went to great pains to express incredulity that HM Government should be taking the word of WHO and others against that of its own principle adviser.

It is the part played by Sir William that is the centrepoint of the debate, not the second-class 'scientists' who stand ready to criticise him at the slightest opportunity nor the number of votes registered on the Panorama website nor the nerds who use 'Have Your Say' as little more than a talking shop to expound their illiterate views. All attempts to cloud the issue by introducing peripheral aspects should be fiercely resisted. It is what the Chairman of the HPA has to say, and the decision by HM Government to ignore him, that matters - and this is what we should be shouting from the rooftops.

UK Your excellent programme really speaks for itself. Credit must go to your researchers. How anyone viewing could doubt the intergrity of the presentation and the risk to health, is beyond my comprehension. I spoke with an employee of a leading Telecommunication Company this morning and he admitted that his company had, in fact,encouraged employees to vote that the Wi Fi computer system offered no danger to health, as part of the BBC survey. This is typical of the tactics these companies will use to defend their business interests and win public support. Lack of transparency and honesty and a high dependancy on the profit motive is the name of their game.

Support Panorama!!!

I urge everyone to go to //www.bbc.co.uk/complaints/make_complaint_step1.shtml and select the "send praise" option in support of Panorama.

I have supported the Panorama with the following comment (thanks to others who supplied some of the text!!):-

This excellent programme really speaks for itself. Credit must go to Panorama's researchers, and to Paul Kenyon, the presenter. How anyone viewing could doubt the integrity of the presentation and the risk to health, is beyond my comprehension. The most important fact to come out of this programme is the stance being taken by Professor Sir William Stewart, Chairman of the Health Protection Agency. It is he who states quite categorically that there may well be a problem with WiFi technology and that an immediate review is called for. Whatever the so-called experts (many of whom are sponsored by the Mobile Phone Operators and whom are giving their opinions out of their fields of expertise) might think, Sir William is a past Chairman of the NRPB (National Radiological Protection Board) and his credentials give him the greatest credibility in this debate. Thus, this is a very worthy subject which was covered correctly, and bravely on the part of the Researchers and the Presenter. I wish that more programmes covered this topic since Panorama has just scratched the surface.

Don't waste time - Do it NOW!

Feedback:

The programme on WiFi was outstanding. It was also very brave of the producers and editor to stick their necks out in the face of such opposition from people who don't 'believe' there is a problem. The fact that children are being exposed to significat levels of microwave radiation all day long in their school without parents consent is nothing short of a scandal. THere are many eminent scientists besides the ones interviewed in the programme who are speaking out againt this technology. The government gain £15 billion pa in tax revenue and are firmly in bed with the industry. We need programmes like this to expose what is going on and bring the scientific evidence to the fore. To quote Dr Neil Cherry, one of the foremost long-term researchers ŒŠ.the ICNIRP guideline exposure level is set many orders of magnitude too high to accomplish this (protection of public health). Š..This (view) has been intransigently maintained in the face of compelling laboratory and epidemiological evidence of adverse health effects that would have had a chemical declared carcinogenic, neuropathogenic, cardiogenic and teratogenic for humans many years ago.

Thank you! Really capable and professional made.

The scene, when Sir Stuart says, "I think, they are wrong", I'll never forget.

Our pain near base stations and mobile phones is too much...

Now Repacholi says: "I will only say, what science says."

In Geneve (2005 WHO-workshop Base Stations) he said:
( //www.nirmed.org/Dokumente/WHO_base_stations_report.pdf )

"Evidence is, that fields from Base Stations cannot do anything to the molecules (of biological tissue). The fear that something might happen in the future causes the effect. WHO EMF is exactly telling what science says and will not help to propagate myths." Where is the evidence? There is not one study to substantiate!

See here: "The Lancet: WHO Ignored Evidence in Guidelines"
( //www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2007/5/8/155851.shtml )

But they search and he gave the direction they should take.

So may be, he would mean: "What the science will say, only I say."

Re: BBC Panorama program on WI-Fi irks industry

Thanks for the Panorama program regarding WiFi. A most excellent documentation about the hazards of equipment sending pulsed wireless radiation.

People can not see, feel or smell the danger, so most think there isn't any. Decades of science show there are serious dangers not only for human but also for animals and plants.

Today we live in a global microwave oven, with expositions no human being had to tolerate before. Official limits are not made to protect people, they just protect one from being cooked in 6 minutes. Even WHO acknowledges those limits aren't made to protect anyone from long term risks like cancer.

Yet, just to save a few bucks in terms of installation officials place WiFi inside schools, near children. Resulting in radiation 3 times higher then in the main beam of a mobile base stations within 100 Meter distance, as measured in your documentation.

Precaution is the first thing to apply as Sir William Stewart pointed out. Next step should be to rethink limits which are plain wrong according to many serious scientists and Sir William Stewart.

Peace

Tom

UK press coverage about BBC1 Panorama (WiFi dangers)

Some Articles what the UK press thought about the most interesting BBC1 panorama WiFi documentation. BBC1 Panorama is the flagship BBC documentation, broadcast at prime time.

The most impressive comment from visitors I saw (The Times):

"Microwave transmitters are being used on the streets of Baghdad to disorientate and disperse crowds - this is known as the Active Denial System [ //www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Active+Denial+System&btnG=Google+Search ]. Similar tactics are also in operation in Brighton, England, to break up groups of vagrants on the streets. What other evidence do we require that microwave radiation is harmful? It is already being used as a weapon! Frankie Fox, Neston, UK"

Did anyone got an answer from BBC on his comment about the program? I was surprised to receive what looked like a non automated reply, perhaps they didn't got much positive comments?

It said they had put my reply on their board for program makers and senior management!

Praise for the Panorama Wi-Fi program and a warning for the future

Praise for the Panorama Wi-Fi program and a warning for the future

With Sir William Stewart, head of the HPA calling for a review of the Wi-Fi network out of concern for our children, the BBC was right to air this program.

Any sensible and caring parent would want to know that there might be risks and that there is no conclusive scientific research into all this newer technology to date.

I personally thank the BBC for the warning. I need no convincing because I researched pulsed microwave radiation when I became electro hypersensitive without realising what it was in 2003.

It took me 14 months of trial & error and research before I was convinced and I have to say that the trial and error was the most effective. I became so sensitive that I knew when I was in the path of emissions and trial and error was the one thing that was absolutely conclusive every time.

However I have grandchildren with parents who don't want to believe these wonderful gadgets might cause harm to their more vulnerable children. For them and all the children in the world, I cannot praise the BBC and Panorama enough. Our children are the future.

Some of my grandchildren's parents are thinking hard right now.

On another note, as a lover of wildlife, I have to say this newer technology is causing problems, too.

More Panorama effects

----- Original Message -----

Sent: Tuesday, May 29, 2007 11:23 PM
Subject: Support for Professor Johansson

I have enclosed an open letter of support for Professor Olle Johansson following the shameful ridicule he has faced following the Panorama programme on Wifi.

BBC News 24 has apparently highlighted news from a Swedish blogger DennisJ who sent news to badscience.net saying that Johansson was the 2004 recipient of the Misleader of the Year award. I would like to know who voted for this award and who funds them.

Read the following quote from Dr Ian Gibson MP taken from Panorama:

‘Panorama -How seriously do you think the government is taking the precautionary approach right now, with respect to wi-fi?’

‘Dr IAN GIBSON MP Norwich North Oh, I don't think there's any doubt about it, they're not at all. wi-fi are just being rolled out as great big white heat of technology. Industry rules in this area and the precautionary principle and the safety of people who might benefit to some extent from the technology are completely dismissed. It's just it's Wild West country for the companies. They just put them where they want and say there's no evidence. Now, you know, five, ten years from now, as the evidence grows, there's enough now to be worried about it, but as the evidence grows, who knows what it might show? It might show that it's completely unsafe for certain groups of people.’

Professor Johansson’s important research is obviously causing problems for the government and industry with regards to wireless communication, mobile phones, phone masts, wifi etc. As you can see in the quote from Dr Ian Gibson MP there is a lack of political will as wireless communication is a huge money making machine for government, you know what the say ‘the best form of defence is attack’; we are up against the powerful forces of industry and government and we should defend the very people who are trying to protect public health as Johansson continues to expose the truth through his research.

Professor Olle Johansson continues to work against all odds to expose what I and many people including many doctors and scientists throughout the world now believe is one of the greatest threats to mankind in the 21st century. His work into the effects of low level, EMF/EMR (electromagnetic field/electromagnetic radiation) has lead the way and added strength to the campaign as we have been able to use over 450 pieces of published research produced by Olle Johansson.

The following quote is taken from an article written by UK journalist Kate Figes; she has written about her own sensitivity to wireless technology, this was reported in many UK national news papers. She has also faced ridicule from people who refuse to accept this problem is real.

“The government and the telecoms industry sit happily in each other's pockets and we have no say, no way to stem the tide or voice objection. It is left to a handful of scientists, such as Dr Johansson from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden who has found skin changes under the effects of low-level microwave exposure to fight for finance for his important research. Without any sense that we have a political party or government prepared to take this issue seriously, ordinary people have no choice but to become activists - campaigning against mobile phone masts that have been erected without planning permission in the heart of their communities and lobbying schools not to install Wi-Fi near where their children are supposed to be able to learn.”

Please read the enclosed interview with Professor Olle Johansson on "Mystery in Skin" //www.feb.se/ARTICLES/OlleJ.html

It details many of Professor Johansson’s research papers and he also talks about the difficulties he faces. The BBC and news items that have published the ridicule from Swedish blogger DennisJ on badscience.net should be ashamed for reporting such rubbish against one of the greatest scientists on the planet; Olle Johansson will be remembered in history for alerting us through his research about electromagnetic fields and the dangers to public health. This man should be awarded the highest honours the world can give including major funding to continue this important research. He should not be ridiculed and starved of funds; for the sake of us all, especially our children the world needs his important work to continue.

The following quote was taken from the Mystery in the Skin interview:

“Mr. Helge Tiainen, former head of the Nokia Consumer Electronics in Sweden, in February 23, 1994, said that "The results of Olle Johansson's research could very well deeply shake the world's electronics industry, but mankind still has to know!"

Trustee – EM Radiation Research Trust

Earlier today, I was appalled to read a blog site launching vicious personal attacks on Professor Olle Johansson of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm deriving from a well-done news report by the BBC's Panorama program. It is especially distasteful because the work of Professor Johansson and the Panorama group that garnered the unwarranted criticisms was aimed at protecting children from the dangers of WiFi in schools. We have come to a very sad state of affairs where pressures from the mobile phone industry can be used to turn saving the lives of children into a perceived vice.

Professon Olle Johansson is truly a uniquely courageous scientist who for years has put the protection of public health above his own personal and professional reputation. His scientific work is honest and impeccable, published in the open, peer-reviewed literature and cited by myself and others in the field of EMR protection as definitive reference. Indeed, many of us in the field have had discussions where Professor Johansson's name has been raised in the context of nomination for a Nobel Prize. In reality, the people leveling these fraudulent and slanderous attacks on the reputation of Professor Johansson do not even warrant mention on the same page with him. Were it not for the fact that unsubstantiated criticism makes it instantaneously around the world via the Internet, even responding to such silliness would be unnecessary. It is the irony of ironies.

The measure of the man is reflected in how he is viewed by those professional colleagues who know him best. Professor Johansson is one of my personal heroes and I am proud to call him a friend. To be sure, the world owes a debt of gratitude to him.

The power of his work and message underscores why he is a major threat to those who stand to profit from the dangerous practices that he opposes. It is therefore important to make this context public. His message is far too important to be muted by the influence of vested interests.

Dr. Carlo Offers Support Against Vicious Web Attacks on Professor Olle Johansson

These are typical tactics of the Cell Phone Industry's Bull Dogs to attack and attempt to discredit anyone who tries to warn us of the extreme dangers posed by this technology. I have seen the same kind of websites attacking and trying to discredit other researchers who try to tell us the truth about these dangers. Why? Because their words threaten a multi-billion dollar industry that cares more about profits and keeping people unconscious than it does about the fact that this technology is indeed making people sick and destroying people's lives.

Very typical and very unconscious. Unfortunately, the unconscious at the bottom of the food chain support - and even in many cases admire - the unconscious at the top of the food chain.

It is surprising that there are so many people choosing to ignore the potential risks. I was a senior manager, in charge of the radio network, for a large wireless operator (some where in Europe) and was presented with such overwhelming evidence of biological effects, such as 100% correlation between base stations being powered (during commissioning) and epileptic fits from people near the masts. The company set up a committee, of which I was a member, to discredit the evidence and make sure it never reached the public domain. I'm worried about wifi, we all should be !

Important Facts About "Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act"

//electionarchive.org/ucvInfo/US/FactsAboutHR811.pdf

Two more incorrect claims about HR811, the "Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act" were widely spread in the last few days on the Internet. I.e.

1. DRES could all be replaced by 2008, so we should oppose HR811 for not doing mandating immediate replacement of all digital recording electronic (DRE) voting machines, and that

2. DRE voter verifiable paper trails (VVPT) rolls can not be efficiently and accurately manually counted.

I have revised "Important Facts About Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act"to rebut these incorrect claims, remove mention of non-election events in Utah, be more clear and precise to avoid any misinterpretations, and to add data and info to show why it is not possible to replace all DREs by 2008, etc.

Please keep in mind one thing:

DRE VVPT rolls would only need to be manually counted in ONE election
(2008); and all paperless DRES and all paper roll DREs (which violate voter privacy and are not durable) would be gone by 2010 federal elections; and the largest hand count of paper ballots since the 1980s would occur in 2008; and the first ever independent check (not conducted by election officials themselves) would be conducted in 2008 IF HR811 passes.

Please recall that prior manual audits (in Ohio) have shown that DRE voting systems often do not accurately record or count votes and that experts agree (like the Cato expert cited below) that DRE voting systems are open to undetectable tampering, electronic failure, and denial of service attacks.

There are only 6 months until 2008, there is no better legislation than HR811 and S559 in the offing.

Mobilfunk vor dem Balkon macht Ärger

10.05.2007 07:02

Kaindorferin fühlt sich von Handymasten gesundheitlich beeinträchtigt. Sie will ihr Haus verkaufen, doch niemand wolle neben Funkanlagen leben.

Seit 20 Jahren wohnt Elfriede Haas in der Gemeinde Kaindorf, zehn Jahre davon machen ihr schon drei Handymasten gegenüber ihres Hauses zu schaffen. Sie ist überzeugt, dass ihr die Strahlung physisch und psychisch schadet. "Ich kann in der Nacht nicht schlafen und fühle mich tagsüber unruhig und nervös", erzählt sie. Als ihr Sohn noch im Haus gewohnt habe, sei dieser ständig von Migräne geplagt worden.

Ärger

Besonders ärgert Haas, dass nun offenbar ein weiterer Mobilfunkbetreiber eine Station auf einem bestehenden Masten einrichten wolle. "Die Monteure waren schon da und haben mir das bestätigt." Für die Kaindorferin ist es unverständlich, dass weder Anrainer noch die Gemeinde ein Mitspracherecht beim Aufstellen von Funkmasten haben.

Keine Genehmigung

Das bestätigt Kaindorfs Bürgermeister Fritz Loidl. Neben drei Handystationen zu wohnen sei sicher nicht angenehm, doch derartige Bauwerke müssten baurechtlich nicht genehmigt werden. "Wir haben als Gemeinde keine Handhabe."

Verkauf

Haas hat indes versucht, ihr Haus zu verkaufen. Sie möchte zurück in ihre Heimat ins Burgenland. Doch auch dies habe ihr der Mobilfunk vergällt, behauptet sie. "Als Interessenten die Masten gesehen haben, waren sie sofort weg." Sie habe nicht einmal einen Mieter finden können. Laut ihrem Makler habe das Haus durch die Funkanlagen einen Drittel seines Wertes verloren.

Inputs are required to counter the usual scornful comments being posted by the ignorant.

Momentum running high

These articles based on tonight's Panorama - Sir William Stewart calling for a review of WiFi in schools.

I heard it on my LOCAL radio station this morning, I have had phone calls to say it is on breakfast TV and two nation papers are carrying stories.

The wording on my local radio station was "Sir William Stewart, Head of the Health Protection Agency, is calling for an urgent investigation into Wi-Fi"

A phone caller to me said that TV is reporing that Wi-Fi is 3 times more powerful than phone masts. Another said it was the second most important news story.

On Saturday I managed to get a message out about electro hypersensitivity on the local radio phone - in, during a debate about smoking, to raise awareness. It would help if we got the message out at every opportunity and turned whatever subject mentioned to the message of the harm these new technologies cause. Letters or phone -ins on a regular basis would work. I know it isn't easy to do this but we have few other choices.

The Radio presenter on Saturday had never heard of electro hypersensitivity. As I spoke of what I can no longer do and how it affects me she was quite concerned and said she would watch Panorama.

On days like this I really wish I could watch TV!

Can we have a proper study of Wi-Fi, please?
