Obama administration: No grounds to probe Afghan war crimes

Memphis Commercial Appeal


Obama administration officials said today they had no grounds to investigate the 2001 deaths of Taliban prisoners of war who human rights groups allege were killed by U.S.-backed forces. The mass deaths were brought up anew today in a report by The New York Times on its Web site. It quoted government and human rights officials accusing the Bush administration of failing to investigate the executions of hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of prisoners...

Profile of a deserter

Amy made a decision to go AWOL. It was a decision made not out of fear, but out of courage. She simply refused to participate in something she considered to be immoral. A young, beautiful woman with an intellect to match, Amy now chooses to hide in anonymity rather than to turn herself in and be readmitted into a system full of implicit and explicit violence. She cannot drive, rent housing, keep a bank account or phone, or visit her family. But what Amy lacks in lifestyle choices, she more than makes up for in integrity. ‘Not hurting people is worth it’ she claims...

A better way out of debt

Christian Science Monitor
by Paul Lamb


Can social capital redeem our financial souls? At a time when financial markets have clearly let us down, we can’t afford to breathe new life into a carcass. Social capital offers the solution we have been looking for. What is social capital? It refers to the worth of our social networks, individual skills, and even things like the time we invest in volunteering. For example, the time I put into helping a neighbor paint a fence (free of charge) is a form of social capital. Its value equates to the time I spent and the ‘worth’ of an enhanced relationship. In traditional economics, the nonfinancial contributions we make are basically worthless. Financial transactions and our monetary net worth are all that really matter. Sadly, we have sunk to measuring our individual and national value through debt, surpluses and productivity gains. But what if we looked beyond investments and financial capital and began taking social capital seriously?

Obama’s war signals

by Justin Raimondo


Only Richard Nixon, whose political career was launched and sustained by an ostensibly militant anti-communism, could have traveled to China, and — with conservative support — effected a de facto strategic alliance with a country long considered an implacable enemy. This Nixon-to-China meme is regularly invoked as aphoristic evidence that we must expect the unexpected, and it comes to mind when considering the prospects of an impending military conflict with Iran: it occurs to me that only Barack Obama, who won the White House in large part due to his opposition to the Iraq war, could take us to war with Iran, and rally liberals and much of the left behind it. Oh, I can hear the outraged howls of protest from the Obama cult, but consider: The president has already set a September deadline for Iran to respond to our as-yet-informal proposal to negotiate over the completely phony nuclear issue — an oddly confrontational approach to opening the first on-the-record high level talks with the Islamic Republic since the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979...

U.S. helped Chinese interrogate Uighurs at Guantánamo

Miami Herald


U.S. military personnel at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, actively helped Chinese interrogators question members of China’s Uighur minority, including physically restraining them so they could be photographed against their will, according to testimony presented Thursday to a congressional subcommittee. The testimony is certain to add to the controversy over how the U.S. government has handled the Uighurs, who were turned over to U.S. troops in Afghanistan by bounty hunters who were paid $5,000 per captive...

Phone causes jet to change course

Published Date: 17 July 2009


A JUMBO jet changed direction because of interference from a passenger's mobile phone, air safety officials have told The Scotsman.

The revelation came as the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) attempted to avert a surge of air rage incidents involving mobiles by warning holidaymakers that most airlines do not yet permit their use in flight.
