Victory in Iraq or "Surrender"

Truthout's Camillo "Mac" Bica writes, "Even should we disregard the accusations of Scott McClellan and give the Bush administration the sizable benefit of the doubt that their preemption was an honest mistake, that does not somehow alter the moral and legal value of the invasion and occupation. Nor does it excuse the destruction of the Iraqi state and the deaths or displacement of millions of innocents. Nor does it diminish their culpability for war crimes."

Pentagon Debates Development of Offensive Cyberspace Capabilities

Julian E. Barnes, The Los Angeles Times: "Igniting a provocative new debate, senior military officials are pushing the Pentagon to go on the offensive in cyberspace by developing the ability to attack other nations' computer systems, rather than concentrating on defending America's electronic security. Under the most sweeping proposals, military experts would acquire the know-how to commandeer the unmanned aerial drones of adversaries, disable enemy warplanes in mid-flight and cut off electricity at precise moments to strategic locations, such as military installations, while sparing humanitarian facilities, such as hospitals."

Norfolk hospital asked to remove paging system

Board told roof-top device emitting microwave radiation unsafe for patients

Posted By BY KATE SCHWASS, SUN MEDIA

The Norfolk General Hospital board of directors has been asked to consider removing a paging service from its roof because of the microwave radiation it emits.

"I'm sure other locations could be found in the community that could be safer," Anca Gaston said during a presentation to the board this week. "My recommendation would be to have it moved."

'Fight phone mast'- plea by councillor

Published Date: 06 June 2008
By Staff Copy

THE chairman of Barwick and Scholes Parish Council has urged residents in Barwick to keep fighting the battle against the recent planning decision to increase the size of an O2 phone mast in the village.

At Monday’s parish council meeting, Coun Ben Hogan told residents to fight the Government Planning Inspectorate’s decision to give the mast the go-ahead by protesting to MPs, Leeds City councillors and the phone company itself.

O2 recently appealed against Leeds City Council’s refusal to give it planning permission for the new mast.

Will the real John McCain please stand up?

The Nation
by Robert Scheer

06/04/08

Actually, I don’t expect him to, now that he is the Republican presidential candidate, pandering to the irrationalities that drive his party. Nor is it likely that the fawning mass media will pressure him to the point of clarity. But I remain genuinely confused as to what makes him tick. McCain is the most confounding of candidates, veering as he does from the stance of provincial reaction to sophisticated enlightenment within an almost instantaneous time frame. He did it last week, when he blasted Barack Obama for being soft in appraising America’s adversaries while in the same moment, calling for sensible rapprochement with Vladimir Putin’s Russia on nuclear arms control. While such unpredictability can be appealing in a senator, it is unnerving in a possible President...

On this week's Bill Moyers Journal, "There's nothing new in Scott McClellan's book about the propaganda campaign or the role of the press in selling the war, so why is it such big news? Journalists Jonathan Landay and John Walcott of McClatchy newspapers and Greg Mitchell of Editor & Publisher analyze the reaction of the administration and the media to McClellan's book."

McCain: I'd Spy on Americans Secretly, Too

If elected president, Senator John McCain would reserve the right to run his own warrantless wiretapping program against Americans, based on the theory that the president's wartime powers trump federal criminal statutes and court oversight, according to a statement released by his campaign Monday.

Adviser Says McCain Backs Bush Wiretaps

Charlie Savae, of The New York Times: "A top adviser to Senator John McCain says Mr. McCain believes that President Bush's program of wiretapping without warrants was lawful, a position that appears to bring him into closer alignment with the sweeping theories of executive authority pushed by the Bush administration legal team. In a letter posted online by National Review this week, the adviser, Douglas Holtz-Eakin, said Mr. McCain believed that the Constitution gave Mr. Bush the power to authorize the National Security Agency to monitor Americans' international phone calls and e-mail without warrants, despite a 1978 federal statute that required court oversight of surveillance."

Easy-money policies created this problem

Bernanke's Speech: "It's all China's Fault, Really"

By Mike Whitney

Thanks to the Fed's ham-fisted monetary policies, a Force-5 economic hurricane is presently looming right offshore and there's nothing Bernanke or Paulson can do to stop it from touching down. If Bernanke cuts rates; commodities (and oil) will skyrocket and foreign investors will ditch the dollar. If he raises rates, banks will fail and the housing crash will accelerate. There are no good options.

Easy-money policies created this problem

Tennessean
by Edward Burgess

07/21/08

The announcements by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac really say nothing new. The ultimate backing of the federal government has always been implicit in the AAA credit rating of these agencies’ obligations. What’s new is that these gentlemen felt that it needed to be said at all. … Dangers abound when, as The Economist magazine puts it, ‘profits are privatized and risks are socialized.’ Let us not forget it was the Fed’s easy-money policies and longstanding bipartisan efforts of politicians to subsidize home buying that helped create this bubble in the first place...
