White House Opposes Move to Declassify Report on Iraq's WMDs

The White House is resisting a move by both Republicans and Democrats to fully declassify a Senate report on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. The White House believes the declassification would trigger another round of negative news media coverage and Democratic-led Congressional hearings, said a Senate Republican, who asked to remain anonymous because of ongoing private discussions.

Ruler of a Media Empire Reaches Out for More

The American newspaper industry has never seen a publisher quite like Rupert Murdoch. Mr. Murdoch has long been a pivotal figure in England and Australia, and in the dozen years since he has moved his base of operations to this country, he has insinuated himself into the political and financial fabric of the United States. His businesses have thrived in a highly regulated environment in part because of his remarkable ability to mold the rules to fit his needs.

Ohio "Vote Caging" Allegations in US Attorney Firings

Four days before the 2004 election, the Justice Department's civil rights chief sent an unusual letter to a federal judge in Ohio who was weighing whether to let Republicans challenge the credentials of 23,000 mostly African-American voters.

Pushing the Envelope on Presidential Power

Cheney and his allies, according to more than two dozen current and former officials, pioneered a novel distinction between forbidden "torture" and permitted use of "cruel, inhuman or degrading" methods of questioning. They did not originate every idea to rewrite or reinterpret the law, but fresh accounts from participants show that they translated muscular theories, from legal counsel to the attorney general John Yoo and others, into the operational language of government.

SPD warnt Union vor innenpolitischem Missbrauch der Terrorwarnungen

Die SPD warnt die Union davor, die jüngsten Terrorwarnungen zu missbrauchen, um innenpolitische Vorstellungen "durchzupauken". SPD-Generalsekretär Hubertus Heil sagte am 25. Juni in Berlin, die SPD mache mit, was rechtsstaatlich zur Abwehr von Terrorgefahren vertretbar sei. Sie werde aber nicht zulassen, dass die offene Gesellschaft ihre Offenheit verliere. Es "nicht in Ordnung", mit Ängsten zu spielen und "ideologische Forderungen" wie den Einsatz der Bundeswehr im Inneren oder Ähnliches damit begründen zu wollen. Heil verwies zudem auf Bayerns Innenminister Günther Beckstein (CSU), der vor Panikmache gewarnt und die Terrorwarnung des Staatssekretärs im Bundesinnenministerium, August Hanning, als "überzogen" bezeichnet hatte.

Repeat Deployments Lead to Long-Term Mental Disorders

With troops facing extended combat tours without relief that are unprecedented in US history, experts say even the expanded health care proposed by the Army will not prevent significant numbers of soldiers from suffering life-changing mental disorders.

Senators Chide Cheney on Exemption Claim

Senators chided Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday for declaring his office exempt from sections of a presidential order involving matters of national security. At issue is a requirement that executive branch offices provide data on how much material they classify and declassify. That information is to be provided to the Information Security Oversight Office at The National Archives.

My Interview With Former US Attorney Bud Cummins

Jason Leopold interviews former US Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas Bud Cummins, who was forced out of his position last year to make room for a protege of Karl Rove. Cummins is a staunch Republican who is vocal about his loyalty to GOP causes and President Bush, but believes that the fallout from the US attorney scandal will continue to affect the integrity and credibility of the Justice Department unless the White House replaces embattled Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

The wheels are coming off the machine

Free Market News Network
by Dave Lindorff

The wheels are coming off the Democratic machine, with angry voters starting to lose patience with the Party’s chronic inability to act decisively on any of the key issues of public concern. In a Reuters dispatch on June 18, Democratic leaders in Congress concede that voters are angry with them for not doing enough to end the Iraq War. They might have added that voters are also angry at them for not impeaching the president or even for moving on Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s bill to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney (H Res. 333). ‘I understand their disappointment. We raised the bar too high,’ bleats Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid (D-NV). No Harry. You didn’t raise the bar too high. You ducked under the bar, when it came time to act to defund the war. Last month, instead of cutting off funding for Bush’s war in Iraq, Congress passed a measure providing him with over $100 billion to fund it, attaching no strings to the measure — not even any deadlines for starting to withdraw troops. This after running a 2006 campaign on ending the war. No wonder Democrats and the independents and, yes, even Republicans who voted Democrats into control of Congress last November are furious...

Spend and spin

Liberty For All
by R. Lee Wrights

Politics in America today is a pyramid built from promises. Individuals get elected to powerful positions by making promises. Every kind of benefit the politician has to offer goes on sale during an election. All kinds of promises are made targeting certain groups of people in an attempt to buy their favor at the ballot box. The bigger the promises, the more votes are generated and success depends on getting the votes. Everyone that wishes to join the ranks of the rich and powerful is promising either to do something or not to do something. Who can you believe? (written 02/04; posted 06/24/07)

Cheney reshaped limits on interrogation



Shortly after the first accused terrorists reached the U.S. naval prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on Jan. 11, 2002, a delegation from CIA headquarters arrived in the Situation Room. The agency presented a delicate problem to White House counsel Alberto R. Gonzales, a man with next to no experience on the subject. Vice President Cheney’s lawyer, who had a great deal of experience, sat nearby...

Lawmaker challenges Cheney on executive order

USA Today


If Vice President Cheney believes his office is not an ‘entity within the executive branch,’ then a House Democratic leader says taxpayers shouldn’t have to finance his executive expenses. Cheney’s office has claimed his constitutional role as president of the Senate also makes him part of the legislative branch and therefore is not covered by a presidential order requiring executive branch workers to report their numbers of classified and declassified government documents...

Dems plan to cut Cheney out of executive funding bill

Raw Story


Following Vice President Dick Cheney’s assertion that his office is not a part of the executive branch of the US government, Democratic Caucus Chairman Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) plans to introduce an amendment to the the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations bill to cut funding for Cheney’s office. The amendment to the bill that sets the funding for the executive branch will be considered next week in the House of Representatives...
