No Rights for Detainees in Afghanistan

Nedra Pickler and Matt Apuzzo, The Associated Press: "The Obama administration, siding with the Bush White House, contended Friday that detainees in Afghanistan have no constitutional rights. In a two-sentence court filing, the Justice Department said it agreed that detainees at Bagram Airfield cannot use US courts to challenge their detention. The filing shocked human rights attorneys."

Britain's omertà on torture is a crime

David Miliband claims the UK is bound by a pledge of confidentiality to the US not to discuss shared intelligence on terrorism. On the contrary, says Binyam Mohamed's lawyer. If it relates to the violent abuse of suspects, to suppress it is illegal.

The Federal Reserve cut its economic outlook for 2009 on Wednesday and warned that the United States economy would face an "unusually gradual and prolonged" period of recovery as the country struggles to climb out of a deep global downturn.

Der Spiegel Exposes the Brazilian Ethanol Madness

Why the Promise of Biofuels is a Lie

By Robert Bryce

For years, the US has been inundated with claims that it should follow Brazil's lead on biofuels. These arguments have largely been made by a small, but influential group of neoconservatives who claim that the US should quit using oil altogether. They claim that using more ethanol - produced from sugar cane, or corn, or some other substance - will impoverish OPEC and America will once again be returned to prosperity.

Inside The Meltdown

Video By PBS

On Thursday, Sept. 18, 2008, the astonished leadership of the U.S. Congress was told in a private session by the chairman of the Federal Reserve that the American economy was in grave danger of a complete meltdown within a matter of days. "There was literally a pause in that room where the oxygen left," says Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.)

Investigating Bush's Crimes

By Scott Horton

Obama's problem is that a growing number of Americans are concerned about what the Bush administration did and are eager to press the issue. The extent of public concern has been reflected in several recent public opinion polls, including one in February by USA Today showing that nearly two-thirds of Americans support investigations of the Bush administration's use of torture and warrantless wiretapping; roughly 40 percent support criminal investigations.

Who Will Be There For Obusha, When The Floor Drops Out?

By David Michael Green

I didn't have high expectations that Obama would turn out to be Eugene Debs, come back from socialist heaven (Stockholm?), and so I can't say that I'm surprised he's not. But I am pretty shocked and disgusted at some of the decisions we've seen so far, including many that Dick Cheney would have little problem praising (in some cases, because Cheney made them originally).

Canada Hosting War Crimes Suspect George W. Bush

The Hidden Link Between Factory Farms and Human Illness

Laura Sayre, Mother Earth News: "You may be familiar with many of the problems associated with concentrated animal feeding operations, or CAFOs. These 'factory farm' operations are often criticized for the smell and water pollution caused by all that concentrated manure; the unnatural, grain-heavy diets the animals consume; and the stressful, unhealthy conditions in which the animals live. You may not be aware, however, of the threat such facilities hold for you and your family's health - even if you never buy any of the meat produced in this manner."

The New Deal and the New New Deal

Robert Reich, Robert Reich's Blog: "The stock market reached a six-year low today. Why? Some blame loose talk (including that of former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan) about nationalizing the nation's banks. Others blame Obama's new plan for helping homeowners who may not be able to pay their mortgages. But the real culprit is the accelerating decline in aggregate demand - consumers, businesses, and exports. Companies are losing money because their customers are disappearing. That's precisely why the stimulus is so important - indeed, why many of us fear it's too small."
