US War Crime Exposed : Abu Ghraib – Sodomy And Humiliation
Seymour Hersh Reveals Rumsfeld Misled Congress over Abu Ghraib. How Gen. Taguba says the military has unpublished photographs and videos that show the abuse and torture was even worse than previously disclosed. That includes video of a male American soldier in uniform sodomizing a female detainee, and information of the sexual humiliation of a father and his son.
US War Crime : Bush and Rumsfeld ‘knew about Abu Ghraib’
The two-star Army General who led the first military investigation into human rights abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq has bluntly questioned the integrity of former US Secretary of Defence, Donald Rumsfeld, suggesting he misled the US Congress by downplaying his own prior knowledge of what had happened.
The War Criminal Don In Denial: What Did Rumsfeld Know and When Did He Know It?
It was only the threat of exposure, by Hersh’s New Yorker story and a CBS broadcast at the end of April 2004, that forced their hands. Even then, Rumsfeld and his partners in crime — especially, General Richard Myers and Undersecretary of Defense, Stephen Cambone — shucked off responsibility, insisting that they’d been informed only in the vaguest terms.
Taguba’s revelation calls their bluff. It puts the gold seal of credibility on what’s easily proved from the record: Rumsfeld, Myers and Cambone engaged in a cover-up.
Look at the conflicting testimony at the two hearings held on May 7 and May 11, 2004. Look at the previous reports to the Department of Defense about abuse — not just the report submitted by Taguba, and not just at Abu Ghraib but reports going back to 2002 that describe abuse all over Iraq and in Afghanistan. Reports from the International Red Cross, from Human Rights Watch, from other human rights groups, from journalists, from American officials, from Iraqis: all clear, well documented, consistent. All immensely credible.
Seymour Hersh Reveals Rumsfeld Misled Congress over Abu Ghraib; How Gen. Taguba was Forced to Retire over his Critical Abu Ghraib Report; and the Site of Another Secret U.S. Prison (Mauritania)
Over three years ago, Seymour Hersh exposed the torture and abuse at Abu Ghraib in an article largely based on a leaked report by Major General Antonio Taguba. Now Taguba has spoken to Hersh in his first interview since being forced to retire. Taguba reveals that he was blocked from investigating who ordered the abuse at Abu Ghraib and how more pictures and video exist showing the torture.

George W. Bush: A President Above The Law : Dictatorship
Much has been written about the Bush Administration’s use of so-called Presidential “signing statements”, which are typically comments appended by the White House to Bills submitted by Congress which purport to constitute the Executive Branch’s understand of how it will comply with the law that Congress has just passed. From a Constitutional perspective, these “signing statements” would appear to be nothing more than mere meaningless political blather but a new Congressional study has shown that the situation is just a little more serious.
US Dictatorship – Hypocrisy ; ‘This Is Not Right’
During the stay she made sandwiches for the kids and was careful to pack the knives she used to prepare those sandwiches in her checked luggage. She says she even alerted security screeners that the knives were in her checked bags and they told her that was OK.
But Beaman says she couldn’t find a third knife. It was a 5 1/2 inch bread knife with a rounded tip and a serrated edge. She thought she might have lost or misplaced it during the trip.
On the trip home, screeners with the Transportation Security Administration at Los Angeles International Airport found it deep in the outside pocket of a carry-on cooler. Beaman apologized and told them it was a mistake.
“You’ve committed a felony,” Beaman says a security screener announced. “And you’re considered a terrorist.”

The 8 Fallacies of Bush’s Abbastan Plan
Fallacy #1: Mahmoud Abbas is legitimate; Hamas is not
Fallacy #2: Hamas Launched a Coup Against the Legitimate Government in Gaza
Fallacy #3: Fatah Offers a Viable Alternative to Hamas
Fallacy #4: Abbas Can Impose His Will on the Palestinians
Fallacy #5: The West Bank is in Fatah’s Hands
Fallacy #6: Israel’s Shlemiel Regime is Capable of ‘Bolstering Abbas’
Fallacy # 7: If Starved, the Palestinians Will Blame Hamas for Their Fate
Fallacy #8: Hamas is an Extreme Jihadist Group With Whom Negotiation is Impossible
The CIA – Fatah: Spies, Quislings and the Palestinian Authority
When Hamas gunmen stormed the Fatah security compounds in Gaza last week they found huge supplies of American-made weaponry including 7,400 M-16 assault rifles, dozens of mounted machine guns, rocket launchers, 7 armored military jeeps, 800,000 rounds of bullets and 18 US-made armored personnel carriers. They also discovered something far more valuable— CIA files which purportedly contain “information about the collaboration between Fatah and the Israeli and American security organizations.
Who is Mohammad Dahlan?
Some have called Mohammad Dahlan the Palestinian Ahmad Chalabi, because he reportedly negotiated with the US and Israel about taking control of Gaza after the August 2005 disengagement plan. In April 2002 testifying before the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Defense Minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer said he had offered control of the Gaza Strip to Dahlan. In exchange, Dahlan, who had control of the most significant military force on the Gaza Strip, would be obligated to ensure complete quiet along the border. He is believed to have drawn up an early agreement at a January 1994 meeting in Rome with senior Israeli military and Shin Bet officials to contain Hamas, and was actively involved in subsequent negotiations with the Israelis.
West chooses Fatah, but Palestinians don’t
They prefer Hamas, which represents an alternative to Fatah’s acceptance of the Israeli occupation.
IN THE WEST, there’s a huge sense of relief. The Hamas-led government that has been causing everyone so much trouble has been isolated in Gaza, and a new government has been appointed in the West Bank by the “moderate,” peace-loving Palestinian Authority president, Mahmoud Abbas.
Those Who Denied Poll Result Were the Real Coup Plotters : Fatah the Traitor
Here is how democracy works in the Alice in Wonderland world of Palestinian politics under the tutelage of the US and international community. After years of being hectored to hold elections and adopt democratic norms, a year and a half ago Palestinians duly elected Hamas with 44 per cent of the vote, ahead of Fatah on 41 per cent.

Obstacles to peace
Hamas wants to create a climate of peace and end all internal strife. But the international community must fully engage with us.
A REQUIEM FOR DEMOCRACY IN PALESTINE
It is becoming more and more apparent as the days go by that this whole mess started, not as a result of disagreements between Fatah and Hamas, but because of the fact that both Israel and Washington refused to recognise the results of the election held in the Palestinian Territories last year. Now with Olmert and Bush ‘mapping out’ the future of the Palestinian people, it is even more apparent that the Occupation will continue and Abbas will head the new ‘Puppet Regime’ in the West Bank, while the population of Gaza will continue to be cut off from the world until their leaders ‘give in’ to Israeli blackmail. We are seeing the establishment of a new government based on money and power…. nothing at all to do with what the people want.
Carter calls western rejection of Hamas’s election victory criminal act

In a speech before Ireland’s eighth annual Forum on human rights Tuesday, the 83-year-old former President said the US and Israel, with European Union acquiescence, sought to subvert the outcome of the Palestinian elections by shunning Hamas and helping Abbas to keep the reins of political and military power.

They Must be Lying – I saw it on TV : US Lying to own peoples
“Most people prefer to believe that their leaders are just and fair, even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which he lives is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all.” – Michael Rivero
The Record of the Newspaper of Record
Dictionaries define “yellow journalism” variously as irresponsible and sensationalist reporting that distorts, exaggerates or misstates the truth. It’s misinformation or agitprop disinformation masquerading as fact to boost circulation and readership or serve a larger purpose like lying for state and corporate interests. The dominant US media excel in it, producing a daily diet of fiction portrayed as real news and information in their role as our national thought-control police gatekeepers. In the lead among the print and electronic corporate-controlled media is the New York Times publishing “All The News That’s Fit To Print” by its standards. Others wanting real journalism won’t find it on their pages allowing only the fake kind. It’s because this paper’s primary mission is to be the lead instrument of state propaganda making it the closest thing we have in the country to an official ministry of information and propaganda.
