Seltsame Enthüllungen über die CIA-Lizenz zum Töten

Das kurz nach dem 11.9. genehmigte Programm sei vor dem Kongress geheim gehalten und auch gar nicht umgesetzt worden - es war aber bekannt und seit 2002 wurden von der CIA gezielte Tötungen ausgeführt.

Seymour Hersh: The Man Who Knew Cheney's Secret

Benjamin Sarlin, The Daily Beast: "The New Yorker's Seymour Hersh was mocked in March when he referred to Dick Cheney's secret squad of CIA assassins. Now, he talks to The Daily Beast about the next shoe to drop."

Fed independence or Fed secrecy?

Campaign For Liberty
by US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)


Last week I was very pleased that hearings were held on the independence of the Federal Reserve system. My bill HR 1207, known as the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, was discussed at length, as well as the general question of whether or not the Federal Reserve should continue to operate independently. The public is demanding transparency in government like never before. A majority of the House has cosponsored HR 1207. Yet, Senator Jim DeMint’s heroic efforts to attach it to another piece of legislation elicited intense opposition by the Senate leadership...

Will Iraq be a global gas pump?

The Nation
by Michael T. Klare


Has it all come to this? The wars and invasions, the death and destruction, the exile and torture, the resistance and collapse? In a world of shrinking energy reserves, is Iraq finally fated to become what it was going to be anyway, even before the chaos and catastrophe set in: a giant gas pump for an energy-starved planet? Will it all end not with a bang but with a gusher? The latest oil news out of that country offers at least a hint of Iraq’s fate. For modern Iraq, oil has always been at the heart of everything. Its very existence as a unified state is largely the product of oil...

Guantanamo and the courts

Part 1

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Andy Worthington


In recent months, those who have been studying Guantanamo closely have come to the disturbing conclusion that the biggest obstacle to President Obama’s pledge to close Guantanamo by January 2010 comes not from the fear-mongering and opportunistic politicians who recently voted to prohibit the use of any funds to release or to transfer prisoners to the United States, and who also authorized legislation that ‘requires the President to report periodically to Congress on the status of Guantanamo Bay detainees and plans for their transfer,’ but from the administration’s own Justice Department...

Obama's Top Five Health Care Lies

Hawaii Reporter
by Shikha Dalmia


President Barack Obama walked into the Oval Office with a veritable halo over his head. In the eyes of his backers, he could say or do no wrong because he had evidently descended directly from heaven to return celestial order to our fallen world. Oprah declared his tongue to be ‘dipped in the unvarnished truth.’ Newsweek editor Evan Thomas averred that Obama ’stands above the country and above the world as a sort of a God.’ But when it comes to health care reform, with every passing day, Obama seems less God and more demagogue, uttering not transcendental truths, but bald-faced lies...

The CIA's Secret Program

Obama's Stimulus Plan: Failing by Its Own Measure

UK: House prices will stay in the doldrums for years, report predicts

Britain's housing market will stay in the doldrums until the middle of the next decade, and there is a 30% chance that prices will take until 2020 to return to their peak before the crash, a consultancy firm predicts.

Obama's Stimulus Plan: Failing by Its Own Measure

When Barack Obama was still President-elect, two of his chief economic advisers - leading proponents of a stimulus bill - predicted that the passage of a large economic-aid package would boost the economy and keep the unemployment rate below 8%. It hasn't quite worked out that way. Last month, the jobless rate in the U.S. hit 9.5%, the highest level it has reached since 1983.,8599,1910208,00.html?xid=rss-topstories

Banks winning at expense of taxpayers

TCS Daily
by Larry Kudlow


Banks surged and stocks followed yesterday, mostly on the heels of high expectations for trading firm Goldman Sachs, which really is more of a hedge fund than a real bank. Last Thursday, I said banks are my favorite stock market sector. So I got it right one time in a row. With a steep upward Treasury curve, even a banker can make money borrowing at near-zero and lending at much higher rates...

Murdoch Papers Paid £1m to Gag Phone-hacking Victims

By Nick Davies

The payments secured secrecy over out-of-court settlements in three cases that threatened to expose evidence of Murdoch journalists using private investigators who illegally hacked into the mobile phone messages of numerous public ­figures as well as gaining unlawful access to confidential personal data, including tax records, social security files, bank statements and itemised phone bills. Cabinet ministers, MPs, actors and sports stars were all targets of the private investigators.

Police to probe phone hack claims

Alleged victims of the phone-hacking operation - including former deputy prime minister John Prescott and broadcaster Andrew Neil - have complained that because they were kept in the dark about the allegations they have not been able to seek redress from the News of the World.

Karl Rove: It's Dangerous to Give Congress Information

By Ben Armbruster

Last night on Fox News, top Bush adviser Karl Rove refused to comment when asked by host Bill O'Reilly if he knew anything about the program. "I want to limit my comments to what I've read in the newspapers and observations," he said. Rove then appeared to make the argument that executive branch should not inform Congress of what it is doing.

The CIA apparently did not put the plan in to operation but the US military did, carrying out several assassinations including one in Kenya that proved to be a severe embarrassment and helped lead to the quashing of the programme.

Is Obama Continuing the Bush/Cheney Assassination Program?

By Jeremy Scahill

Congress is outraged that Cheney concealed a CIA program to assassinate al Qaeda leaders, but they should also be investigating why Obama is continuing-and expanding-U.S. assassinations.
