Lt. Col. Barry Wingard: It's Not Just About Waterboarding

Lt. Col. Barry Wingard, Truthout: "In a speech earlier this year, former Vice President Dick Cheney said waterboarding and other brutal torture techniques were only used on detainees of the highest intelligence value - the so-called worst of the worst. But Cheney's claims are untrue."

OECD: Dramatische Prophezeiungen

32 Prozent arbeiten in “atypischen Beschäftigungsformen”

„Rund 10,5 Millionen Menschen in Deutschland arbeiteten im Jahr 2008 in sogenannten atypischen Beschäftigungsformen; das entspricht einer Quote von 32,4 Prozent der Erwerbstätigen. Das geht aus der Antwort der Bundesregierung (16/13991) auf eine Kleine Anfrage (16/13907) der Fraktion Die Linke hervor, in der sich diese nach dem Stand der Jugendarbeitslosigkeit in der Bundesrepublik erkundigt hatte. Unter Bezugnahme von Daten des Statistischen Bundesamtes teilt die Regierung ferner mit, dass 1,2 Millionen Beschäftigte dieser Gruppe unter 25 Jahre alt waren. Davon wiederum waren 436.000 im Alter von 15 bis 19 Jahren und fast 800.000 im Alter von 20 bis 25 Jahren. Zu ”atypischen Beschäftigungsverhältnissen“ zählt das Statistische Bundesamt Zeitarbeit, Teilzeitbeschäftigungen, geringfügige sowie befristete Beschäftigungen…“ Bundestagsmeldung vom 22.09.2009 //www.bundestag.de/presse/hib/2009_09/2009_254/03.html


Datenbank Atypische Beschäftigung. Landkarte der Leiharbeit: Neue WSI-Datenbank zeigt Daten für jeden Land- und Stadtkreis

„Leiharbeit ist in den kreisfreien Städten und Landkreisen Deutschlands sehr unterschiedlich verbreitet. In einigen ländlichen Regionen gibt es sie kaum. In mehr als 30 Städten waren hingegen im Juni 2008 zwischen fünf und zwölf Prozent der sozialversicherungspflichtig Beschäftigten davon betroffen. Damit spielte die Leiharbeit auf verschiedenen regionalen Arbeitsmärkten kurz vor der Wirtschaftskrise eine weitaus größere Rolle, als bundesweite Durchschnittszahlen vermuten lassen. Das macht eine neue Datenbank des Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaftlichen Instituts (WSI) in der Hans-Böckler-Stiftung deutlich, die am heutigen Donnerstag frei geschaltet wird…“ Pressemitteilung vom 17.09.2009 //www.boeckler.de/320_96968.html

Racist police state raids in America

Freedom's Phoenix
by Stephen Lendman

09/26/09

A recent New York City Cardozo School of Law Immigration Justice Clinic (IJC) study titled ‘Constitution on Ice: A Report on Immigration Home Raid Operations’ examined the problem in New York, New Jersey, and Long Island from 2006-2008 and included other examples in California, Texas, Massachusetts, Georgia and elsewhere. Researchers documented a nationwide assault on poor immigrant workers, the great majority being Latinos. Many times ICE broke into homes, seizing all occupants ‘without legal basis.’ IJC discovered a systematic pattern of misconduct ’suggest(ing it) may be a widespread national phenomenon reaching beyond’ the areas studied. It involves: — illegal ICE agent entries with no legal authority; — illegally arresting people randomly, including innocent ones in their bedrooms; — conducting lawless searches and seizures in violation of the Fourth Amendment; and — making arrests based on ethnicity, race, appearance, and English proficiency. These police state tactics have no place in a democracy, yet ICE (on its web site) lists dozens of monthly swat-type raids, often against innocent people and their families in their homes...

Job losses causing huge deficits for Social Security

Arizona Republic

09/28/09

Big job losses and a spike in early-retirement claims from laid-off seniors will force Social Security to pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes the next two years — the first time that has happened since the 1980s. The deficits — $10 billion in 2010 and $9 billion in 2011 — will not affect payments to retirees because Social Security has accumulated surpluses from previous years totaling $2.5 trillion. But they will add to the federal deficit. Applications for retirement benefits are 23 percent higher than last year, while disability claims have risen by about 20 percent. Social Security officials had expected applications to increase from the growing number of Baby Boomers reaching retirement, but they did not expect the increase to be so large. What happened? The recession hit, and many older workers suddenly found themselves laid off, with no place to turn but Social Security...

A disaster in the making

Liberty For All
by Peter Orvetti

09/28/09

US-Iranian relations are in meltdown. Fears of a U.S. strike against Iran in the last unaccountable days of the Bush presidency — after John McCain’s defeat but before Barack Obama’s inauguration — gave way to a reassuring calm after Obama took office. The new US president made diplomatic overtures to Iran, and kept a cool, careful distance during Iran’s summer post-election upheaval. Now, Obama faces new pressure to use force against the Islamic Republic...

Insanity Trumps Common Sense in Afghan Policy Fight

Alexander Cockburn, Truthout: "The ripest moment of absurdity last week was the spectacle of Pentagon officials berating The Washington Post for publishing the supposedly confidential assessment of the situation in Afghanistan, prepared by Gen. Stanley McChrystal, America's Man in Charge of that doomed adventure. The Pentagon asked the Post to cut certain passages on the ground that they would compromise national security. Since the document is commonly supposed to have been leaked to Bob Woodward by either McChrystal himself or one of his retinue, it seems silly to start whining about the irresponsibility of the press."

Afghan strategy: Mission improbable

Orange County Register
by Alan Bock

09/27/09

I have finished reading the assessment of the Afghan war by Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the general tabbed by President Barack Obama to handle that conflict. I confess I was somewhat blown away by how thoroughly nation-building it is. I probably shouldn’t be surprised. Gen. McChrystal was chosen because he’s supposed to be an expert on counterinsurgency, and this assessment basically consists of plugging what can be garnered from the facts on the ground into classic counterinsurgency doctrine. The trouble is that while the doctrine is well-established among military intellectuals (if that isn’t an oxymoron) it has seldom worked in the real world...

Afghanistan: It is decision time

QandO
by Bruce McQuain

09/28/09

We can flood Afghanistan with troops, have them at a one-to-one ratio with the population and provide the security COIN requires. But if that population has no confidence in the viability of its own government, doesn’t support it and doesn’t consider those trying to topple it ‘the enemy,’ the entire effort is doomed. So essentially the choice facing the administration now is to nation build or withdraw. Withdrawal doesn’t necessarily mean we quit the fight against al Qaeda. But for the most part, it would mean quitting the fight against the Taliban. And I think we all know how that would end...
