Bush to Veto Bill Banning Waterboarding

Dan Eggen, writing for The Washington Post, reports: "President Bush today will veto legislation meant to ban the CIA from using waterboarding and other harsh interrogation tactics and will argue that the agency needs to use tougher methods than the US military to wrest information from terrorism suspects, administration officials said."

The Water Cure

For The New Yorker, Paul Kramer explores the history of "the water cure," or waterboarding, in US foreign affairs and the American psyche during the early 20th century. He writes: "Many Americans were puzzled by the news, in 1902, that United States soldiers were torturing Filipinos with water. The United States, throughout its emergence as a world power, had spoken the language of liberation, rescue, and freedom."

Verlängerung der Lebensarbeitzeit ist unmenschlich

8. März 2008

Morgen jährt sich zum ersten Mal der Beschluss des Bundestages zur Rente mit 67. Dazu erklärt Michael Schlecht, Mitglied des Parteivorstandes und gewerkschaftspolitischer Sprecher:

Vor einem Jahr, am 9. März 2007, beging die SPD mit ihrem Arbeitsminister Müntefering Wahlbetrug. Ohne Not verlängerte die große Koalition das Renteneintrittsalter um zwei Jahre. Der Beitragssatz soll im Jahre 2029 um 0,5 Prozent niedriger liegen. Das sind beim Durchschnittsverdiener gerade einmal 12 Euro im Monat. Ein Großteil der Beschäftigten schafft kaum die 65. Deshalb ist die Verlängerung der Lebensarbeitzeit unmenschlich! Und wenn man nicht bis
67 durchhält, führt das zu einer Rentenkürzung um 7,2 Prozent. Die Gewerkschaften und DIE LINKE haben im Vorfeld erheblichen Widerstand geleistet. Über 300.000 Kolleginnen und Kollegen haben während der Arbeitszeit protestiert, faktisch ein politischer Streik. Der Druck reichte nicht aus. Die Gewerkschaften wollen jetzt die Bundestagswahl 2009 zur Volksabstimmung über die Rente mit 67 machen. DIE LINKE wird sich dieser Volksabstimmung stellen. Denn wir wollen die Rente mit 65! Und wir wollen bei vorzeitigen gesundheitlichen Problemen den abschlagsfreien Rentenbeginn mit 60. DIE LINKE will die Altersarmut bekämpfen - durch die Reparatur der Rentenformel, die von Riester, Schmidt und Schröder massiv beschnitten wurde. Voraussetzung für eine gute Rente ist eine gute Arbeit. Deshalb tritt DIE LINKE ein für anständige Einkommen und Arbeitsbedingungen, die einen sorgenfreien Lebensabend möglich machen.

Protecting All Waters

The New York Times editorial team writes, "Half of the waters in the United States are at risk of pollution or destructive development because of a wrongheaded Supreme Court decision in 2006. The decision narrowed the scope of the Clean Water Act, weakened the law's safeguards and thoroughly confused the federal agencies responsible for enforcing it. Before things get any worse, Congress should approve the Clean Water Restoration Act."
