Bitterness Apparent as US Releases Iraqi Prisoners

Leila Fadel reports for McClatchy Newspapers: "When Leila Nasser was six months pregnant, US soldiers burst into her house and wrestled away her husband, Mohammed Amin, who was asleep on the roof, trying to escape the summer heat....Now Amin was one of 15 detainees who'd be released as part of a reconciliation program that the US military's 1st Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment put together in hopes of easing tensions in this divided neighborhood. But the release showed how far reconciliation has to go."

Voting Rights Activists Win Big Cases in Florida and Arizona

Steven Rosenfeld reports for AlterNet: "A series of court decisions this week supporting voting rights advocates in Florida and Arizona may bode well for more open and accountable elections in 2008. That is because the cases involve major trend-setting aspects of elections: whether you can block new laws that disenfranchise thousands of new voters because of errors in state databases, and whether you can catch partisans who alter electronic vote counts. In both instances, courts sided with voting rights advocates against state and local officials."

"Grundlegende Verfassungsrechte missachtet": Hirsch legt Verfassungsbeschwerde gegen Vorratsdatengesetz ein

Das Bundesverfassungsgericht wird sich mit dem Gesetz über die Vorratsdatenspeicherung befassen. Der FDP-Politiker Burkhard Hirsch kündigte am 20. Dezember an, im Namen weiterer prominenter Liberaler Verfassungsbeschwerde einzulegen. "Wir sind der Überzeugung, dass das angefochtene Gesetz grundlegende Verfassungsrechte in grober Weise missachtet, und sind nicht bereit, dem immer weitergehenden Abbau unserer Grundrechte tatenlos zuzusehen", so der frühere Bundestagsvizepräsident. Telekommunikationsunternehmen sind ab Januar verpflichtet, für sechs Monate alle Teilnehmer, Zeitpunkt und Dauer von Telefonaten auf Vorrat zu speichern. Bei Handytelefonaten muss der Anbieter zusätzlich die Funkzelle speichern, in der das Gerät zu Beginn der Verbindung angemeldet ist. Zugriff auf die Daten haben Polizei und Staatsanwaltschaft nach richterlichem Beschluss. Das ist oftmals reine Routinesache.

Americans need to be wary when religion, politics intertwine

Tennessean
by Lewright B. Sikes

12/20/07

The Religious Political Right, which represents less than 30 percent of Americans according to any number of recent polls, continues to push its agenda in the public and political sphere. It does so by promoting creationism/intelligent design as a “science” and demanding special consideration and influence for ‘Christian’ prayer groups and organizations in public schools, insisting that political candidates, especially Republican presidential contenders, vie for who can be the most ‘Christian,’ etc. Tennesseans and Americans need to think carefully about where this ‘yellow brick road’ will actually take us. Perhaps there is no better time to do this than during the holiday season, when the religious concepts of new birth, rebirth and human redemption are especially present in our consciousness...

The thought police

Pioneer Press
by Peter Ehrlinder

12/20/07

Under media radar, the Democrat-sponsored “Prevention of Violent Radicalism and Homegrown Terrorism” bill (H.R. 1955) passed the House at the end of October by a vote of 404 (including the entire Minnesota delegation) to 6. The bill was tagged as noncontroversial by the House leadership and is pending before the Senate. For those senators and citizens who remember history, the bill should be controversial, indeed.Promoted as a relatively innocuous public safety measure, the bill directs money to the Department of Homeland Security for research on homegrown terrorist-Americans in our midst. While this may seem to make sense, the way the bill describes the “hidden enemy,” and the powers inherent in the 10-member investigative commission it establishes, should raise concerns among Americans who remember history, no matter what their political leanings...

The truth behind the Surge

The so-called 'Surge', and its alleged success, are based on two fundamental tactics: the first one is the so-called 'Redirection' which consists of buying off the Sunni resistance, including all those groups who only yesterday were called 'terrorists'; the second new tactic is massive increasing in the use of airpower.

Juliette Anthony writes for Truthout about the growth of the corn ethanol industry: "The Federal Energy Bill, with its fivefold mandate to increase ethanol production, is headed for the president's desk without threat of veto, now that all requirements to support tax credits for solar and wind systems have been removed.
