Why can't we see ourselves in the faces of those kids firing RPGs at convoys of Halliburton trucks stealing Iraqi oil? - By Ted Rall
Cheering for the underdog is as American as fatty food. In the movies we love heroes who simply want to be left alone--but are willing, like Charles Bronson in "Death Wish," to dish out double-sized portions of blazing revenge when the baddies cross the line. Why, then, don't we pull for the Iraqi insurgents?

03.Aug.2005 Marc Cooper.
In this week's L.A. Weekly , Cooper denounces the After Downing Street movement as "masturbatory." I know Cooper and his brand of leftism of old. When he cries out against a grassroots movement, that means the movement has done something worthwhile. Keep it up, Downing Streeters! URL:

03.Aug.2005 UPDATE: A reader has asked me to reprint the full piece from 2001. If fate is with me, I'll do so tomorrow. As you'll see, the distinction is striking: The Novak of 2001 was very different from the wildly self-contradictory
Novak of today:
In the August 1 column, Novak stated that the "unanimous Senate Intelligence Committee report ... said that Wilson's wife 'suggested him for the trip.'" But in a July 15, 2004, column, Novak clearly recognized that the committee did not reach an official conclusion about how the CIA made the decision to hire Wilson...
URL: https://cannonfire.blogspot.com/
a column dated October 15, 2001, little more than a month after the tragedy.
The author: Robert Novak.
I can't quote it verbatim (I'm not writing from home) but the gist is this: On that date, Novak claimed that he heard whispers that the Bush White House planned to use the WTC attacks as a reason to begin a new war with Iraq. Even then, the writing on the wall was unmistakable.
Novak made clear to his readers that his "intelligence sources" had made clear to him that such an attack would be unjustified.
Saddam had no Weapons of Mass Destruction, said Novak. Saddam also had no ties to Al Qaida.
ALl in all, not a bad column. Sounds like Novak's "intelligence sources" were sensible folk of the Valerie Wilson sort.
One thinks fondly of those precious few months back in 2001 when the newspapers printed real news, not neocon propaganda. URL:

Bob Fitrakis is, as always, on top of the story...
But Noe was more than a mere fundraiser. The New York Times dubbed him Toledo's "Mr. Republican," the GOP "man to see" in northwest Ohio. While Tom chaired the regional Bush-Cheney campaign, his wife Bernadette chaired the scandal-torn Lucas County Board of Elections that played a key role in caging votes to put Bush back in the White House.
Noe's fortune came in part from charging the Bureau of Worker's Compensation (BWC) $12.6 million in coin-fund related expenses for managing the $50 million investment between 1998 and 2004. Federal and state officials are now investigating these expenses.
A "Ponzi scheme" is what Ohio's Republican Attorney General Jim Petro calls the method by which Noe may have stolen millions of dollars from the state of Ohio's Bureau of Worker's Compensation (BWC).

Durch die globale Klimaerwärmung sei diese Lebenswelt jedoch in Gefahr, befürchten die Forscher.

Tiere aus südlicheren Gewässern könnten bei steigenden Temperaturen in die arktische Tiefsee eindringen und das Ökosystem zerstören.
"Unsere Forschung ist ein Bezugspunkt. Wir hoffen, dass sie in den nächsten Jahrzehnten wiederholt wird, um herauszufinden, welche Änderungen sich in dem Ökosystem ergeben haben", sagte Gradinger. Das Team erhofft sich durch die Daten auch Aufschluss über die Auswirkungen des Klimawandels auf die Meere. Nach einer Studie der Vereinten Nationen könnte die Arktis im Jahr 2100 größtenteils eisfrei sein.
Das internationale Forscherteam amerikanischer, kanadischer, russischer und chinesischer Wissenschaftler plant nun weitere Forschungsreisen in den Südlichen Ozean, der die Antarktis umgibt. Die Lebensbedingungen dort seien viel weniger beständig als im kanadischen Becken, erklären die Meeresbiologen.
In dieser Meeresregion würden sich antarktische Nährstoffe mit Lebensformen des pazifischen, indischen und des atlantischen Ozeans vermischen. "Der Südliche Ozean verteilt diese dann wie eine Zentrifuge", beschreiben die Wissenschaftler den Effekt in einer Erklärung. Im Dezember 2007 soll das geplante Projekt starten, 200 Forscher aus 30 Ländern werden an der Expedition beteiligt sein.
Das Spektrometer des Spitzer-Teleskops spaltete das Infrarotlicht auf und enthüllte die Existenz organischer Verbindungen. Zum ersten Mal konnten die Wissenschaftler mit Hilfe dieser spektralen Fingerabdrücke auch die Distanz zu einer Galaxie messen, die in diesem Fall über zehn Milliarden Lichtjahre beträgt.
Als die Wissenschaftler die Infrarotbilder des Spitzer-Weltraumteleskops untersuchten, erlebten sie eine Überraschung: In Galaxien, die etwa zehn Milliarden Lichtjahre von der Erde entfernt sind, befinden sich Moleküle, die auch auf der Erde die Voraussetzung für die Entwicklung von Leben sind.
"Nach dieser Entdeckung ist es nicht mehr verrückt, über Leben in anderen Sonnensystemen nachzudenken", sagte Lin Yan vom Spitzer Science Center am California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Die Infrarotaufnahmen zeigen die Galaxien nur 3,5 Milliarden Jahre nach dem Urknall. Nach astronomischen Maßstäben stammen die Fotos damit aus der Kinderstube des Universums.
"Das liegt zehn Milliarden Jahre weiter in der Vergangenheit als alle bisherigen Funde dieser Moleküle", schreibt Yan im Fachmagazin "Astrophysical Journal". Bisher seien die Teilchen nur in Galaxien entdeckt worden, die viel näher an unserer Milchstraße lagen.

02.Aug.2005 Der Historiker Lothar Kettenacker erinnert in dem deutsch-britischen Streit um Churchills Bombenoffensive daran, dass der Bombenkrieg vor allem ein Ersatz war für die von Stalin geforderte "Zweite Front" im Westen. "Viele Briten mögen heute die Tatsache verdrängt haben, dass die Wehrmacht in erster Linie von der Roten Armee niedergerungen wurde,

Churchill war es nur allzu sehr bewusst, dass den Russen noch nach Stalingrad stets mehr als 150 deutsche Divisionen gegenüberstanden, während die angloamerikanischen Verbände in Nordafrika nicht einmal mit einem knappen Dutzend deutscher Divisionen fertig wurden.

Churchill kam sich im Umgang mit Stalin wie ein militärischer Hochstapler vor."

02.Aug.2005 Deep Background
The same people in and around the administration who brought you Iraq are preparing to do the same for Iran. -By Philip Giraldi
The Pentagon, acting under instructions from Vice President Dick Cheney’s office, has tasked the USA Strategic Command (STRATCOM) with drawing up a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 11.Sep.2001-type terrorist attack on the USA. The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons.

Der demokratische Senator und gescheiterte Präsidentschaftskandidat John Kerry kritisierte Boltons Ernennung als "falsche Entscheidung". Die Ernennung per Dekret "mindert John Boltons Legitimität und seinen Einfluss bei der Sicherung amerikanischer Ziele bei der Uno", sagte Kerry.
Der demokratische Senator Edward Kennedy bezichtigte Bush nach der Ernennung Boltons des Amtsmissbrauchs. "Es ist ein abwegiges Manöver, das die von der Verfassung geforderte Zustimmung des Senats umgeht und durch das sich die Wolke über Boltons Glaubwürdigkeit bei den Uno weiter verdunkelt", sagte Kennedy.
Bolton ist für seinen harschen Ton und für seinen harten politischen Kurs bekannt. Neben fehlendem diplomatischen Gespür wird ihm vorgeworfen, Geheimdienstmitarbeiter drangsaliert zu haben, die seinen Einschätzungen widersprachen. Zudem soll er nachrichtendienstliche Informationen über den Iran, Kuba, Nordkorea und Syrien aufgebauscht haben. Die Vereinten Nationen hatte er in der Vergangenheit scharf kritisiert.

Heute machte Bush dem Ringen ein Ende und setzte um, was er bereits vor ein paar Tagen angekündigt hatte: Er machte von einer Regelung Gebrauch, die dem Präsidenten während der Parlamentsferien die Besetzung von Ämtern per Dekret erlaubt. Angesichts des Krieges (gegen den internationalen Terrorismus) und der Diskussion über Uno-Reformen sei der Posten in New York zu wichtig, um ihn noch länger unbesetzt zu lassen. Die USA seien nun seit mehr als sechs Monaten ohne ständigen Botschafter bei der Uno.
Bolton ist der erste Uno-Botschafter der USA, der unter Umgehung des Senats eingesetzt wurde. Ein Gesetz gibt dem Präsidenten unter bestimmten Voraussetzungen die Befugnis, Ämter, die sonst ein Bestätigungsverfahren im Senat erfordern, eigenhändig zu besetzen. Das gilt dann, wenn eine rasche Ernennung seiner Ansicht nach im nationalen Interesse liegt, aber der Kongress eine Sitzungspause hat. Senat und Abgeordnetenhaus hatten am Freitag ihre Sommerpause begonnen. Nach den geltenden Regelungen kann Bolton nur bis Januar 2007 auf dem Posten bleiben, dem Zeitpunkt, an dem der im November 2006 neu zu wählende Kongress seine Arbeit aufnimmt.

Laut "Sun" sprach sich Verteidigungsminister Geoff Hoon dafür aus, die routinemäßigen Passkontrollen wieder einzuführen: "Es ist wichtig, dass wir die identifizieren können, die in unser Land kommen + die, die es wieder verlassen." Laut "Sun" könne es jedoch bis zu 80 Tage dauern, bis das Parlament die gängige Regelung ändere: Die Abgeordneten befinden sich gerade in den Sommerferien + auch aus dem Kabinett von Premierminister Blair haben sich mehrere Minister in den Urlaub verabschiedet.
Wie der "Independent" spekuliert, könnte es sich aber bei der Ausreise Osmans um gar kein Versehen handeln. Möglicherweise, so die Zeitung, hätten Fahnder den Verdächtigen absichtlich fahren lassen, um ihn zu verfolgen und auch seine Kontaktpersonen ausfindig zu machen.

Sep.2004 10:17 PM In all probability, CBS was duped, which is unfortunate since the official record had not been disputed—i.e. Bush failed to report and complete his annual physical + he was subsequently grounded.

Since there is no apparent record of his superiors conducting the required review board, it is pretty evident that his superiors were looking out for him, so that he would not be an embarrassment to his father.

If his superiors had done their job, Bush would have most likely been called to active duty and sent to Vietnam. One could even argue that his honorable discharge was issued under fraudulent conditions.

Bush has demonstrated that he is nothing more than a pathological liar, and he should be sent packing back to Crawford.

01.Aug.2005 Morality, Terrorism and the Laws of Motion
"Each man's death diminishes me, for I am involved in mankind."-By Liaquat Ali Khan
Civilian fatalities in Muslim cities must be tolerated, we are told, because no war is clean in killing.

But terrorists are different.

They have no other intention but to terrorize our civilians and cities.

Hence we are good and they are evil, the logic goes, because they have no moral claim to violence as we do. Continue.

"Righteous murderers may claim they're spreading democracy and defending human rights, but clearer heads and common sense can distinguish faith based motivation of fanatics, who have killed 128,000 people so far

because God

01.Aug.2005 Terror attacks are response to military actions
Terrorism is actually a response to military interventions perpetrated by western governments.-By Linda McQuaig

31.Jul.2005 Summary of a great article. Previously, we mentioned Mark Crispen Miller's fine new piece, "None Dare Call It Stolen," in this month's Harpers -- and not available online.

If you have a spare six bucks, the issue is worth your investment. But if the budget is tight (as it may well be, if you are working class and living in George Bush's America), Mary Anne Saucier has pieced together this precis.

I don't think anyone will mind if I reprint much of it...
The Conyers report details the disenfranchisement of Democrats through “intentional misconduct and illegal behavior, much of it involving Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell, the co-chair of the Bush-Cheney campaign in Ohio.”
There was unequal placement of voting machines.
County boards of elections were ordered to reject all Ohio voter-registration forms not printed on white, uncoated paper of not less than 80 lb. text weight.
Access was limited to provisional ballots.
“Caging” was used to challenge 35,000 individuals who did not sign for registered letters sent to new voters.
There was restriction of media from covering the election and conducting exit polls.
There was a prearranged FBI terrorist attack warning in Warren County which kept reporters from observing a post-election ballot-counting.
There was restriction of foreign monitors from “watching the opening of the polling places, the counting of the ballots, and, in some cases, the election itself.
Numerous statistical anomalies all deducted votes from Kerry.
In Cuyahoga and Franklin Counties, “the arrows on the absentee ballots were not properly aligned with their respective punch holes, so that countless votes were miscast.”
In Mercer County, 4000 votes were mysteriously not in the final count.
In Lucas County a polling place never opened because no one had the key.
In Hamilton County, many absentee voters could not vote for Kerry because his name was not on the ballot.
In Mahoning County 25 electronic machines changed Kerry votes to Bush.
Dirty tricks told voters to go to false polling places; that Democrats were to vote on November 3; volunteers offered to take absentee ballots to the election office; voters were challenged to prove eligibility to vote. The “Texas Strike Force” (25 people registered at a Franklin County Holiday Inn, paid by the Republican Party) threatened targeted people from a pay phone, if they voted.
Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell created rules for the Ohio recount (requested by the Green and Libertarian Parties) which would prevent “countywide hand recounts by any means necessary.” The end result was “the Ohio vote was never properly recounted, as required by Ohio law.”
13.Dec.2004 - it was reported by Deputy Director of Hocking County Elections Sherole Eaton, that a Triad GSI employee had changed the computer that operated the tabulating machine + had “advised election officials how to manipulate voting machinery to ensure that [the] preliminary hand recount matched the machine count.” This same Triad employee said he worked on machines in Lorain, Muskingum, Clark, Harrison + Guernsey counties.
“Based on the above, including actual admissions and statements by Triad employees, it strongly appears that Triad and its employees engaged in a course of behavior to provide “cheat sheets” to those counting the ballots. The cheat sheets told them how many votes they should find for each candidate + how many over and under votes they should calculate to match the machine count. In that way, they could avoid doing a full county-wide hand recount mandated by state law. If true, this would frustrate the entire purpose of the recount law—to randomly ascertain if the vote counting apparatus is operating fairly and effectively + if not to conduct a full hand recount.”
In Union County, Triad replaced the hard drive on one tabulator.
In Monroe County, “after the 3 % hand count had twice failed to match the machine count, a Triad employee brought in a new machine and took away the old one. (That machine’s count matched the hand count.)”
Green and Libertarian volunteers reported that in Allen, Clermont, Cuyahoga, Morrow, Hocking, Vinton, Summit + Medina counties, “the precincts for the 3 % hand recount were preselected, not picked at random, as the law requires.”
Even though the 3 % hand recount in Fairfield County was different than the machine count, there was no hand count as required.
“In Washington and Lucas counties, ballots were marked or altered, apparently to ensure that the hand recount would equal the machine count.”
„In Ashland, Portage, and Coshocton counties, ballots were improperly unsealed or stored.”
At great cost, Belmont County had an independent programmer change the counting machines so they would only count votes for President.
“..Democratic and/or Green observers were denied access to absentee, and/or provisional ballots, or were not allowed to monitor the recount process, in Summit, Huron, Putnam, Allen, Holmes, Mahoning, Licking, Stark, Medina, Warren + Morgan counties.
Miller writes about the January 6, 2005 Electoral challenge from Ohio Representative Stephonie Tubbs-Jones and California Senator Barbara Boxer. He decries its rejection by the Congress and the press, with the Republicans calling the Democrats “troublemakers and cynical manipulators”, etc., etc.
According to Miller, “all this commentary was simply wrong” and “went unnoticed and/or unreported;” and with Bush’s re-inauguration “all inquiries were apparently concluded, and the story was officially kaput.” Miller emphasizes that, even after the National Election Data Archive Project, on March 31, 2005, “released its study demonstrating that the exit polls had probably been right, it made news only in the Akron Beacon-Journal,” while “the thesis that the exit polls were flawed had been reported by the Associated Press, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, USA Today, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Columbus Dispatch, CNN.com, MSNBC + ABC..”
So what is McPhereson's trick? Perhaps this: By rejecting Diebold machines in the voting booth, he looks clean. But he has not rejected Diebold tabulators -- the "mother mchines," as they were once memorably called. In a close election, the tabulators do the real mischief. URL: 
01.Aug.2005 California saved? (Vote fraud update) California's Governator-appointed Secretary of State, Bruce McPhereson, was supposed to be Diebold-friendly. Very friendly. As in: Count the nation's largest state as beet red, from here to doomsday.
So what's
After possibly the most extensive testing ever on a voting system, California has rejected Diebold's flagship electronic voting machine because of printer jams and screen freezes, sending local elections officials scrambling for other means of voting.
"There was a failure rate of about 10 % + that's not good enough for the voters of California and not good enough for me," said Secretary of State Bruce McPherson. More:
McPherson denied approval of the TSx after a series of failedtests, culminating in a massive, mock election conducted on 96 of the machines in a San Joaquin County warehouse. San Joaquin is one of three California counties that purchased a total of 13,000 TSx machines in 2003 for more than $40 million and have paid to warehouse them ever since.
For eight hours on July 20, four dozen local elections officials and contractors stood at tables and tapped votes into the machines to replicate a California primary, one of the most complex elections in the nation. State officials watched as paper jams cropped up 10 times + several machines froze, requiring a full reboot for voting to continue. You can find McPhereson's letter to Diebold

01.Aug.2005 More recently, Cannistraro's name cropped up in pieces exposing the Iranian connections of that former BushCo darling,
Ahmed Chalabi.
In a not-unrelated move, he also offered
important testimony in the continuing Wilson/Plame investigation. A sample:
The leaking was, in my judgment, a manifestation of the continuing battle by some policy-makers to pressure the intelligence community into providing the intelligence data that would support previously adopted objectives. Some senior officials have contempt for the professional intelligence community, including CIA and DIA. This contempt has been manifested by attempted intimidation of analysts to produce supporting data for the policy-makers' own ideological beliefs. This disdain for the intelligence community led to dependenceby policyy makers on dubious channels of information such as the defector sourcesproduced byyaimedd Chalabi and the INCC....
...The Vice President and his chief of staff Lewis Libby visited CIA headquarters to engagethe CIA analysts directly on this issue of uranium acquisition in Africa and thealleged renewall of a nuclear program. I have heard that this unprecedented act, in which a Vice President engages desk level analysts, resulted in a contentious give and take. That "contentious give and take" remark remains one of our few clues as to what really went on when Dick invaded Langley.
Even more revealing is
this recent discussion between spook-watcher/broadcaster Ian Masters and Cannistraro on the still unresolved mystery of just who forged those Niger documents. (Yes, I know Rush Limbaugh still tells his listeners that these docs were real. He's lying. As usual.)
Here are a few excerpts. This, friends, is must-read material , because it hints at a great scandal to come -- the scandal behind the Plame scandal:
URL: https://cannonfire.blogspot.com/
Giraldi co-publishes a newsletter called Intelligence Brief , which is circulated within the business community. (It doesn't seem to have an online existence.) His partner in that enterprise is an equally intriguing fellow -- another former CIA guy named Vincent Cannistraro, formerly chief of operations for the CIA's counter-terrorism efforts. URL: 
01.Aug.2005 Cheney/Pentagon plan to nuke Iran after the next big terrorist incident -- even if Iran is innocent. As long-time readers know, I've predicted just such a scenario for quite some time -- and those predictions appeared well even before the revelations in (of all places) American Conservative brought made my worst fear-fantasy seem all too real.
The original piece can now be found online
here. You may also want to see (See this response, as well as the Al Jazeera take on this matter. Giraldi's brief squib has riveted the attention of observers across the political spectrum.
This really is the most important story of our time. More important than Judge Roberts, Senator Roberts, or Mister Roberts . More important than the appalling rape of young boys at Abu Ghraib. More important than Rove or Wilson.
Why? Because Cheney's scheme could not so much change history as end it.
And I've discovered an interesting new angle to the tale... URL: 
Eine Folterzentrale mitten in London würde weitere Anschläge eher befördern als verhindern.
Durchaus erlaubt sind allerdings perfide Taktiken beim Umgang mit den Verdächtigen. Schlafentzug durch häufige Zellenkontrollen in der Nacht gehört zum Potential der Terror-Fahnder, ebenfalls die Kontrolle von Essen je nach Kooperation. Da stets dieselben Beamten für die Vernehmungen zuständig sind, entsteht über die Zeit ein vertrautes Verhältnis. Genau über dies soll später Druck ausgeübt werden, um die Rucksackbomber zu Aussagen zu bewegen. Bei den Verhören können zudem andere Beamte in einem Kontrollraum jederzeit Anweisungen geben, was die beiden Vernehmungsbeamten tun sollen. Dazu sind in der Zentrale Psychologen, Geheimdienstler und Verhörspezialisten versammelt.
Die Polizei betont, alle muslimischen Gefangenen bekämen in ihrer Zelle auf Wunsch einen Koran und einen Gebetsteppich. Ehemalige Gefangene berichteten nach ihrer Freilassung, dass grelle Neonlicht in den Zellen bleibe 24 Tag am Tag eingeschaltet. Andere vermuteten, dass die Polizei an der Belüftung der Zellen manipuliere und die Temperaturen absichtlich extrem heiß oder kalt einstelle. Diese Taktik ist aus den Verhörzentren der CIA bekannt. Die britische Polizei weist alle Vorwürfe der indirekten Folter zurück. Allerdings verweigerten die Behörden auch kritischen Politikern stets den Zugang zu dem geheimen Zentrum.
Tag und Nacht müssen die Verdächtigen mit Vernehmungen rechnen, die meist nur durch 15-minütige Pausen unterbrochen werden.

Eine ganze Keller-Etage haben die Planer der Station für besonders gefährliche Terroristen eingerichtet. Diese ist durch mehrere Sicherheitsschleusen und Kontrollen von der normalen Polizeistation komplett abgetrennt. Für alle Eventualitäten wurde vorgesorgt: Bei Stromausfällen steht jederzeit ein Notstromgenerator zur Verfügung. Auch die Sauerstoffversorgung kann zur Not aus künstlichen Reserven geregelt werden. Im Terror-Keller soll für jeden der Verdächtigen der Eindruck einer komplett künstlichen Welt entstehen, aus der es für die Inhaftierten keinen Ausweg gibt. So wollen die Fahnder die mutmaßlichen Terroristen unter Druck setzen und möglichst schnell Aussagen aus ihnen herausbekommen.
Daneben mahnten seriöse Zeitungen wie der "Economist" schon vor Tagen, die britischen Behörden dürften trotz der terroristischen Bedrohung die Menschen- und Bürgerrechte nicht aus den Augen verlieren.
Gerade wegen der strengen Geheimhaltung ranken sich um die Zustände im Terror-Zentrum von Paddington Green Gerüchte. Bisher haben nur wenige Zivilisten den Komplex tief im Keller des Polizeikomplexes gesehen. Nur die Anwälte von einigen Terror-Verdächtigen hatten hier die seltene Gelegenheit in das Gefängnis zu schauen, das in den Zeitungen in Bezug auf das US-Terror-Lager auf Kuba gern als das "britische Guantanamo" beschrieben wird. Sie beschreiben ein Verhörzentrum, das in solcher Form bisher nur aus den Zentralen der Bösewichte in James Bond-Filmen zu sehen war. Glaubt man den Berichten, existiert tief im Londoner Untergrund zumindest eine Light-Version von Guantanamo.
Mit den Rucksackbombern haben britische Fahnder erstmals Terroristen lebend gefasst, die nun in einem Hochsicherheitsgefängnis verhört werden. Agiert wird unter extremen Zeitdruck, die Behörden fürchten weitere Anschläge. Schon wird diskutiert, wie weit man bei Terror-Verdächtigen gehen darf.

Der spanische Geheimdienst geht ebenfalls davon aus, dass hinter den jüngsten Londoner Anschlägen eine umfassende Organisation steckt. Geheimdienstchef Alberto Saiz sagte heute in einem Interview mit "El Pais", es gebe kaum Parallelen zu den Terroranschlägen in Madrid im vergangenen Jahr. Beide ähnelten sich lediglich darin, dass sie dem Nahverkehr gegolten hätten. Die Londoner Attentäter hätten offenbar mit anderen Gruppen in Verbindung gestanden oder "Anweisungen von oben" bekommen. Es handele sich nicht um eine isolierte Gruppe, sondern "die Entscheidung kommt von oben", wurde Saiz zitiert.
Eine Sprecherin von Scotland Yard sagte, es gebe wahrscheinlich noch mehrere Hintermänner. Spekulationen über eine dritte Terrorzelle wies sie zurück. Die "Sunday Times" hatte unter Berufung auf Sicherheitskräfte berichtet, eine dritte Gruppe gewaltbereiter Extremisten sei noch auf freiem Fuß und plane weitere Attentate in London.

In Verhören hat Hamdi Adus Issac jede Verbindung zwischen der zweiten Anschlagserie in London und dem Terrornetzwerk al-Qaida bestritten. "Wir wollten nicht töten, wir wollten nur Terror verbreiten", zitierte die Zeitung "La Repubblica" den Briten äthiopischer Herkunft am Sonntag. Wie aus Kreisen der Ermittler verlautete, gab der 27-Jährige an, er habe nicht genügend Sprengstoff bei sich gehabt, um irgendjemanden zu verletzen. Die britische Polizei widersprach allerdings dieser Darstellung. Der Londoner Polizeichef Ian Blair betonte laut der britischen Nachrichtenagentur PA, die Attentäter vom 21. Juli hätten sehr wohl Menschen töten wollen. Die Attentate schlugen vermutlich deshalb fehl, weil die Zünder der Sprengsätze nicht richtig funktionierten.

Earl Doherty: Das Jesus-Puzzle. Basiert das Christentum auf einer Legende? Neustadt: Angelika Lenz Verlag 2003. 481 Seiten, broschiert, Euro 25,90, ISBN: 3-933037-26-3.

Die Literatur über Jesus von Nazareth, den vorgeblichen Heiland, der nach einer weit verbreiteten Legende vor rund zweitausend Jahren nicht nur beachtliche Wunder gewirkt, sondern die gesamte Menschheit erlöst haben soll, ist so groß und vielfältig, dass man eigentlich nichts Neues mehr erwarten sollte.

Die meisten Forscher, die sich mit Jesu Leben beschäftigen, haben sich damit abgefunden, dass man nichts Definitives über Jesus sagen könne, allenfalls, dass eine solche Gestalt, sofern es sie überhaupt gegeben hat, wohl im jüdischen Kontext dachte und handelte. Infolge dessen hat sich in der historisch-kritischen Literatur das Bild vom jüdischen Wanderprediger Jesus eingebürgert, der erst in Folge der späteren Mythologisierung (beginnend mit Paulus) seiner jüdischen Wurzeln entkleidet und zum Christus, dem „Erlöser aller Menschen“, stilisiert wurde.

Völlig falsch!, meint Earl Doherty, der mit seinem Buch „Das Jesus-Puzzle“ eine erfrischend neue Interpretation der Jesus-Figur vorgelegt hat.

Das Evangelium der Christenheit beruht, so Doherty, auf der Verschmelzung zweier Traditionen, die ursprünglich gar nichts miteinander zu tun hatten:

1. einer „Galiläa-Tradition“, die eine neue Ethik sowie das Nahen des Reichs Gottes + des sog. „Menschensohns“ verkündigte + 2. einer „Jerusalem-Tradition“, in deren Zentrum ein himmlischer Sohn Gottes stand (Jesus oder Yeshua, Christus oder Messias genannt), der in einer übernatürlichen Welt durch einen metaphysischen Opfertod und anschließender Auferstehung bereits zwischen Gott + der Welt vermittelt hatte (Erlösung) + dessen irdische Ankunft für die nahe Zukunft erwartet wurde.

Die Überlieferung der Unterdrückten lehrt uns, daß der „Ausnahmezustand „, in dem wir uns befinden, nicht die Ausnahme, sondern die Regel ist.

30.Jul.2005 Zum Thema im Internet:    ·   "Safe Harbor"-Programm des US-Handelsministeriums
·   US-Regierung: Überblick zu "Safe Harbor"
·   Bundesbeauftragter für den Datenschutz
·   US Gesetz zum Schutz des Heimatlandes (Patriot Act)
·   "Pivacy Policy" von eBay.com
·   "Privacy Notice" von Amazon.com
Das starke Gefälle in der Qualität des Datenschutzes zwischen der EU und den USA hält das Thema Datentransfer weiter auf der Tagesordnung. Durch die anhaltenden terroristischen Aktivitäten wird die Begründung für den staatlichen Zugriff weiter frei Haus geliefert. Die gängige Praxis und die schwach ausgeprägten Kontrollmöglichkeiten sollten jedermann zu denken geben, wem er persönliche Daten überlässt.
Im letzten Jahr sollte die Europäische Kommission dem Parlament in einem ersten Bericht über die Ergebnisse von Safe Harbor berichten. Dazu ist es bisher nicht gekommen + auch beim Besuch einer Delegation des amerikanischen Handelsministeriums vor wenigen Wochen spielte das Abkommen keine Rolle. "Wir gehen dieser Frage auch im Zusammenhang mit dem Flugdatenabkommen nach", sagt Dr. Ulrich Dammann. "Wir haben dazu keine Kenntnisse + darauf warten wir eigentlich. Ein Bericht zum Abkommen ist in Vorbereitung. Es wird im Herbst dazu eine Veranstaltung geben mit der EU, den Datenschützern und dem amerikanischen Handelsministerium, der Federal Trade Commission".
In den USA dürfen staatliche Stellen im Namen der Terrorabwehr von allen Unternehmen und Institutionen Auskunft darüber verlangen, was ihre Kunden tun und ihre Daten abfragen. Dazu ist kein offizieller Durchsuchungsbefehl notwendig und man benötigt auch keinen belegbaren Tatverdacht. Für die Erlaubnis ist ein von der Öffentlichkeit abgeschottetes Bundesgericht zuständig und die Beschlüsse können nicht von anderen Gerichten überprüft werden. "Amazon.com verlangt grundsätzlich eine gültige gerichtliche Vorladung, ehe der Anfrage nach Kundendaten von Seiten einer Strafverfolgungsbehörde nachgegangen wird", beharrt Christine Höger.
Bisher gibt es kaum Erkenntnisse, wie oft Amazon oder Ebay mit Anfragen staatlicher Stellen bedacht werden. "Als übliche Verfahrensweise kann das nicht lange verborgen bleiben. Es kann natürlich sein, dass es interne Fahndungshinweise sind und das man Schwerpunkte macht", sagt Dr. Ulrich Dammann. "Ich habe einen Betroffenen gebeten, mir die Erlaubnis zu geben, diesen Fall zu verfolgen, aber habe sie nicht bekommen."
Bisher ist nur der Fall einer Bundesbürgerin pakistanischer Herkunft bekannt geworden, die im Oktober 2003 nicht in die USA einreisen durfte. Die Grenzbeamten wussten dabei auffallend viele Einzelheiten über ihr Kaufverhalten bei Amazon.
Erst vor zwei Jahren haben Äußerungen von Joseph Sullivan, Leiter der Ebay-Abteilung "law enforcement and compliance", für großes Aufsehen gesorgt. Danach mussten die staatlichen Stellen nur ein Fax oder eine Mail schicken, um an die gewünschten Kundendaten zu kommen. Etwa ein Jahr nach dem Abkommen zu "Safe Harbor" wurden die Grundsätze des Datenschutzes in den USA durch die Anschläge vom 11. September grundlegend geändert. Fortan bestimmte die innere Sicherheit den Umgang mit personenbezogenen Daten und der "Patriot Act" regelte die Einschränkung der Bürgerrechte.
Bei Amazon sieht man da keinen grundsätzlichen Gegensatz zur deutschen Praxis. "Amazon.com und Amazon.de haben sehr strikte Standards, wenn es um den Schutz von Kundendaten geht", erklärt Christine Höger. "Die Möglichkeit der US-Regierung, Amazon.com zur Preisgabe von Kundendaten zu zwingen, unterscheidet sich nicht von dem Recht, welches die deutsche Regierung innehat, um ähnliche Information von Firmen in Deutschland zu erhalten."
So sollte den deutschen Nutzern des Auktionshauses Ebay immer klar sein, dass sie mit der Bestätigung der Allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen auch in die "privacy policy" einwilligen. In dieser Erklärung heißt es zunächst einmal unter Punkt 1, Absatz 1, dass alle Daten in die US-Zentrale übermittelt werden dürfen. Damit ist noch lang nicht garantiert, dass sie wirklich nur dort gespeichert werden.
Datenweitergabe auf Verlangen
30.Jul.2005 Safe Harbor"
"Den Schutz persönlicher Daten bei Amazon garantiert ein Abkommen zwischen der Europäischen Union und den USA", sagt Manfred Illgenfritz von der für Amazon zuständigen bayerischen Datenschutzaufsichtsbehörde. "
'Safe Harbor' soll sicherstellen, dass keine Daten zum Beispiel an staatliche Stellen weitergegeben werden."
Eigentlich gestattet die europäische Datenschutzrichtlinie keine Übertragung in andere Länder, die über kein vergleichbares Datenschutzniveau verfügen. Das gilt insbesondere für die USA, da dort keine umfassenden gesetzlichen Regelungen existieren. Das Abkommen jedoch ermöglicht es europäischen Unternehmen, personenbezogene Daten legal in die USA zu übertragen.
"Das 'gift giving patent' wurde von Amazon im April 2000 eingereicht und im April 2005 genehmigt", bestätigt Christine Höger, Pressesprecherin bei Amazon Deutschland. Das aber bedeute keineswegs, dass es auch zur Anwendung komme: "Amazon hat keinerlei Pläne, die in dem Patent beschriebene Technologie einzusetzen. Als die Patentanwendung im Jahr 2000 geschrieben wurde, versuchten wir, soweit wie möglich in die Zukunft zu blicken und haben sehr viele unterschiedliche Anwendungen entwickelt, mit denen wir unseren Kunden hilfreich bei der Produktauswahl zur Seite stehen können."
Ein Patent auf entsprechende Analysemethoden wurde Amazon.com kürzlich erteilt. Es spielt dabei keine Rolle, ob jemand schon bei Amazon registriert ist oder nicht. Der Buchversender könnte damit das Verhalten seiner Kunden auch beim Verschenken besser verstehen und ihnen Vorschläge für entsprechende Präsente machen. Wenn der Anlass ermittelt ist, kann der Kunde bei jedem Geburtstag erinnert und zum Einkauf aufgefordert werden. Neukunden wiederum könnte man so mit passenden Angeboten empfangen - als "alte Bekannte" so zu sagen.
30.Jul.2005 Die Meldung sorgte vor einigen Monaten für einiges Aufsehen: Amazon, hieß es da, plane, auch die Daten von Menschen zu sammeln, die durch Amazon-Kunden beschenkt werden. Auch Informationen, die Kunden in Besprechungen über Bücher oder CD's von sich preisgeben, möchte das Unternehmen künftig genauer unter die Lupe nehmen und den schon gespeicherten Profildaten seiner Kunden hinzufügen. "Nach amerikanischem Datenschutzverständnis ist das nicht grundsätzlich ein Rechtsverstoß", sagt Dr. Ulrich Dammann vom
Bundesbeauftragten für den Datenschutz in Bonn.
Amazon verkauft nicht nur viele Bücher, sondern ist auch sehr an den Daten der Käufer interessiert. Doch nicht nur der Datenhunger der Unternehmen wächst, auch der des Staates: Gerät hier der Datenschutz unter die Räder?

Washington - 16 Bestimmungen des Anti-Terror-Gesetzes, die der US-Bundespolizei FBI und anderen Ermittlungsbehörden erhebliche Befugnisse bei der Überprüfung von Bürgern einräumen, sollen nach dem Willen der Abgeordneten vorerst nur bis zum Ende des Jahres gelten. Zwei Bestimmungen über das Einsehen von Daten aus öffentlichen Bibliotheken wurden nur für die Dauer von vier Jahren verlängert.
Eine von der US-Regierung angestrebte Regelung, die es dem FBI erlauben würde, ohne richterliche Erlaubnis Informationen über Verdächtige aus Banken, Krankenhäusern oder Hotelregistern einzusehen, wurde vom US-Senat abgeschmettert.
Der Patriot Act war nach den Anschlägen vom 11. September 2001 in den USA verabschiedet worden.

30.Jul.2005 White House Redefines The Meaning Of "Torture"- By Chris Floyd
Congress may rubber-stamp the gulag ("a buy-in to Guantanamo"); that's allowed. And Congress may approve funding for the gulag. But the people's representatives must have no say whatsoever in the gulag's operations. To give way on this point would reintroduce the rule of law and genuine democracy to U.S. government. And the Bush militarists have gone too far, waded through too much blood, to return to such "quaint" notions now.

“I believe that the resistance will grow stronger and stronger + the occupiers will pay dearly”, he said referring to foreign forces in Iraq. He added that the situation in Iraq is extremely dangerous. “No one can predict if the occupiers will leave on their own accord, or if the resistance has come closer to achieving its goal (of driving the occupying forces out).”

"Es wird in den nächsten Tagen immer wieder Polizeiaktionen geben", sagte er. Ob er damit weitere Festnahmen meinte, ließ er offen. Deutlich aber machte er seine Einschätzung zur Gefährdungslage Londons und aller anderen britischen Städte. "Die Gefahr ist nicht gebannt, sie ist immer noch in jedem Moment da und wird es auch bleiben."

Verhalten sich die anderen mutmaßlichen Komplizen ähnlich, dürfte die Suche nach den Hintermännern schwierig werden. Gleichwohl war heute ein wichtiger Schritt zurück zu einer Normalität, die sich wohl alle Briten herbei wünschen.
Mehrere Polizeiexperten erklärten in Interviews, nach den schnellen Folgeattacken nach dem 7. Juli sei es mehr als wahrscheinlich, dass es noch mehr Täter gebe. Diese könnten jederzeit an jedem Ort in Großbritannien zuschlagen. Wüsste man mehr über die Bomben, könnte man vielleicht den Bombenbauer finden.
Trotz der erfreulichen Festnahme fragen sich schon jetzt viele, wie Hussein trotz der groß angelegten Fahndung das Land in Richtung Frankreich verlassen konnte.

Am Vormittag schlugen die Polizisten zu. Da die Medien von der Aktion Wind bekommen hatten, erlebte ein Millionenpublikum den Polizeieinsatz am Fernseher mit. Live waren die Stimmen von Polizisten zu hören, die in die umstellte Wohnung schrieen: "Muhammad, komm' raus. Warum kommst du nicht aus der Wohnung?" Kurz darauf ein lauter Knall, offenbar hatten Spezialeinheiten die Eingangstür im vierten Stock eines Wohnblocks auf einem balkonartigen Vorbau gesprengt. Die Beamten setzten sofort Gas ein, als sie in die Wohnung des Backsteingebäudes stürmten.
Auf Bitte der Polizei stellten die Medien ihre Live-Berichterstattung zwischenzeitlich ein. Nichts sollte die heikle Festnahme verhindern oder stören - auch weil die Verdächtigen vielleicht noch weiteren Sprengstoff hatten.
Erst nach dem Ende des Zugriffs wurden die teilweise grotesken Szenen übertragen: Parallel zur Stürmung der Wohnung am Dalgarno Garden, in der zwei der Bombenleger vermutet wurden, lief zwei Stockwerke tiefer eine weitere Razzia. Ein Polizist, der eine Wohnungstür zu öffnen versuchte, musste zunächst zwei Kinder aus einer Nachbarwohnung abwimmeln, die mit ihm sprechen wollten. Als es dem Beamten nicht gelang, die Kinder zum Rückzug zu überreden, unterbrach er seine Aktion.
Währenddessen sah man vor der Wohnung im vierten Stock zwei Männer mit nacktem Oberkörper. Sie hielten ihre Hände hoch. Betäubt von Tränengas, versuchten sie ihre Nase zu putzen, indem sie sich mit den Fingern schnäuzten. Später berichtete eine Zeugin: "Wir hörten dann auch einige Schüsse, wie von Maschinengewehren."
Bei den beiden Männern soll es sich um zwei der vier verhinderten Rucksackbomber handeln. Englands oberster Terror-Fahnder Peter Clarke gab ihre Namen mit Ramsi Mohammed und Ibrahim Muktar Said an. Den Namen Saids hatten die britischen Medien schon seit Tagen genannt. Laut den Berichten kam der 27-Jährige als junger Mann aus Eritrea nach Großbritannien. Er soll am 21. Juli eine Bombe im Bus 26 abgelegt haben.
Ramsi Mohammed wurde bisher nicht als Verdächtiger genannt. Am Freitagabend wurde jedoch immer deutlicher, dass er am 21. Juli versucht haben soll, eine Bombe in der U-Bahn der Northern Line zu platzieren.
Kriegsähnliche Zustände mitten in London
Heute hatten die Beamten genaue Ziele: An zwei Orten, nur knapp eine Meile voneinander entfernt, marschierten ganze Regime von schwarz gekleideten, schwer bewaffneten und mit ihren Gasmasken kaum zu erkennenden Elitepolizisten der Einheit SAS auf. Seit dem frühen Morgen hatten sie zwei Häuser observiert - eins nahe den Dalgarno Gardens in North Kensington, ein anderes am Tavistock Crescent in Notting Hill. Genau dort vermuteten sie zwei der verdächtigten Rucksackbomber vom 21. Juli.

wie sehr sich London nach dem 7. Juli 2005 verändert hat. Aus der sonst gerade in ihren Wohngebieten so beschaulichen Metropole London mit seinen engen Straßen und zweigeschossigen Backsteinhäusern ist eine Stadt unter Belagerung geworden. Immer und überall ist Polizei präsent. Doch anstatt der unbewaffneten Bobbys sind nun Beamte mit schweren Maschinenpistolen und schusssicheren Westen. Nicht noch einmal wollen sie zulassen, dass weitere Bomber ihre tödlichen Werkzeuge ablegen können. Der Terror ist allgegenwärtig geworden - egal ob in der U-Bahn oder bei jedem Londoner zu Hause.

Diesmal waren es keine Terror-Bomben gewesen, durch die Henning vor etwas mehr als drei Wochen in dem U-Bahnzug an der Station Aldgate verletzt worden war. Heute waren es gezielte Polizei-Sprengsätze, eingesetzt von Elitefahndern bei der Suche nach Terroristen.

Nach der Festnahme des mutmaßlichen Rucksackbombers haben Unsicherheit und Angst im Viertel Einzug gehalten. Am Mittwoch um fünf Uhr morgens war Singh gerade dabei, seinen Laden zu öffnen, als die Polizei ihm mitteilte, dass seine Straße evakuiert würde. Er musste, genau wie die Bewohner von etwa hundert Wohnungen, seine Sachen packen und gehen. Zu Verwandten oder dem Saltley Community Leisure Centre nahe Bordesley Green. Das Zentrum war von lokalen Behörden geöffnet worden, als die Polizei eine Sperrzone um die Nachbarschaft herum errichtet hatte. Ein Bombenräumkommando und ein forensisches Team untersuchten das Haus, in dem Omar lebte.

Die Folge: Dutzende Nachrichtenseiten, etwa
die der "Washington Post", von "USA Today", "CNN" und "ABC-News", ja sogar von der indischen "Hindustan Times", berichteten darüber.
Das überraschte selbst den Verursacher der Meldung. Er ist ebenfalls Teilnehmer der Konferenz und wollte eigentlich nur sehen, ob social hacking tatsächlich funktioniert.

die nun veröffentlichten Aufnahmen sind trotz allem spektakulär: Denn die Eisfläche, die wie eine Pupille im Auge des Kraters liegt, scheint aus Wassereis in reiner Form zu bestehen. Gefrorenes Kohlendioxid, das sonst die Nordpolkappe und das Wassereis bedeckt, ist zu dieser Jahreszeit schon verdampft und in der Atmosphäre aufgelöst. Im Mars-Sommer erreichen die Temperaturen auf dem roten Planeten bis zu 20 Grad Celsius.
Die Eisfläche liegt etwa 200 Meter über dem Kraterboden, wahrscheinlich auf einem Plateau. Das Eis selbst ist nur wenige Dezimeter dick: Unter dem Eis erhebt sich vermutlich ein großes Dünenfeld, von dem man die Randgebiete noch unter dem Eis erkennen kann. Der Krater hat einen Durchmesser von 35 Kilometern und liegt in der nördlichen Tiefebene "Vastitas Borealis".
Moskau - "Wir haben den stellvertretenden Chef der US-Botschaft eingeladen, um unserer Sicht über die Übertragung eines Interviews mit seinem Terroristen Ausdruck zu verleihen ... Wir haben unsere Empörung ausgedrückt", sagte ein Sprecher des russischen Außenministeriums. Dies sei ein "extrem negativer" Vorgang, erklärte das Außenministerium in Moskau. Mit der Ausstrahlung der Interviews sei "einem blutrünstigen Terroristen eine Bühne gegeben worden".
Die US-Botschaft lehnte einen Kommentar zu der Angelegenheit ab. Nach dem Abschied des früheren US-Botschafters Alexander Vershbow gibt es derzeit noch keinen Nachfolger für dessen Posten in Moskau.

Ein Ersuchen der USA an Südafrika, Aswat festnehmen zu dürfen, sei an Großbritannien weitergeleitet worden. Die dortigen Behörden hätten aber den Antrag mit Blick auf die britische Herkunft des Mannes abgelehnt.
Mittlerweile gebe es Hinweise auf eine mögliche Verbindung des Mannes zu den Terroranschlägen auf U-Bahnzüge und einen Bus, bei denen 56 Menschen ums Leben gekommen waren. Britische Medien hatten Aswat vergangene Woche als "britischen Qaida-Führer" bezeichnet.

Der gemeine Getreidepilz Gibberella zeae verschießt seine Sporen mit der 870.000fachen Erdbeschleunigung aus seinem Fruchtkörper - zehnmal kräftiger als eine Gewehrkugel. Und das Pilzgeschoss übertrifft mit einer Geschwindigkeit von bis zu 130 Stundenkilometern auch den bisherigen Redkordhalter in Sachen Bioballistik: Der sogenannte Hutschleuderer, auch als Pilobolus bekannt, bringt seine Sporen nur auf 100 Stundenkilometer, schreiben die Biologen im Fachblatt "Fungal Genetics and Biology".
Demnächst wollen die Wissenschaftler klären, wie die atomdünnen Materialien industriell hergestellt und wo sie zuerst eingesetzt werden können. Geim warnt jedoch vor allzu viel Euphorie: "Einige Anwendungen sind sicher noch Jahrzehnte entfernt."
Die Materialien wurden mit einer speziellen Technik, der mikromechanischen Spaltung erzeugt, schreibt das Team um Andre Geim von der University of Manchester im Fachblatt "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences". Dabei schälten die Forscher einzelne atomdünne Schichten von Kristallen ab. Abhängig vom Kristall können die Schichten als Metalle, Halbleiter, Dämmstoffe oder Magneten funktionieren. Bisher wurde angenommen, dass solche dünnen Materialien grundsätzlich nicht existieren können. Geim und seine Kollegen haben nun bewiesen, dass die Herstellung nicht nur möglich, sondern auch verhältnismäßig einfach ist.

27.Jul.2005 A U.S. creation or not, don't call Posada a soldier : No matter what you may think about the war in Iraq, it is outrageous and insulting to compare American soldiers to a man who boasted of paying people to secretly plant bombs in hotels and restaurants that cater to innocent civilians.

27.Jul.2005 Cause and consequence : Two million people, including a vast number of British Muslims, took to the streets against the invasion of Iraq. Blair preferred the warmth of the White House's embrace. Ignore the marchers and you risk igniting the murderers. If the alternative to terrorism is democracy, then it is time the people of Britain and Iraq alike were listened to + the occupation ended.

27.Jul.2005 John Pilger: Blair Is Unfit To Be Prime Minister: The bombs of 07.Jul.2005 were Blair's bombs.

Even the most casual observer could note the tension and even animosity between "Wild Bill" Luti (as we came to refer to our boss) and Bruce Hardcastle, our defense intelligence officer (DIO). Certainly, there were stylistic and personality differences. Hardcastle, like most senior intelligence officers I knew, was serious, reserved, deliberate + went to great lengths to achieve precision and accuracy in his speech and writing. Luti was the kind of guy who, in staff meetings and in conversations, would jump from grand theory to administrative minutiae with nary a blink or a fleeting shadow of self-awareness.

Neoconservatives march as one phalanx in parallel opposition to those they hate. In the early winter of 2002, a co-worker U.S. Navy captain and I were discussing the service being rendered by Colin Powell at the time, and we were told by the neoconservative political appointee David Schenker that "the best service Powell could offer would be to quit right now." I was present at a staff meeting when Bill Luti called Marine Gen. and former Chief of Central Command Anthony Zinni a "traitor," because Zinni had publicly expressed reservations about the rush to war.

That was our immediate concern. But we also thought we had to learn about the terrorist networks, how they connected to he states.” They arrive at Andrews Air Force base a few minutes after five in the afternoon.

27.Jul.2005 But why should I say anything, when Larry Johnson can defend himself so eloquently? Check out his response here.
The rightwing is resurrecting an op-ed I wrote in July 2001. I stand by the full article. It is still relevant today. I am accused, incorrectly, of ignoring the threat of terrorism. In fact, I correctly noted that the real threat emanated from Bin Laden and Islamic extremism.
President Bush, for his part, ignored the CIA warning in August of 2001 that Al Qaeda was posed to strike inside the USA.
Reprinted below is the article I wrote in January 2003. My key warning is contained in the second paragraph. I wrote, "In fact there is a serious risk that a U.S. led war against Iraq may crystallize the diffused anger in the Arab and Muslim world--a heretofore unattained goal of bin Laden and his followers--and persuade more Muslim youths to take up the terrorist banner against American and her citizens." Thanks go to
Brad Friedman for bringing this matter to our attention.

A smeared Johnson Ever notice that right-wing "newsmen" often start spouting the very same line all at once?
It's almost as though Karl Rove or Ken Mehlman sends these guys a script. It's almost as though conservative "reporters" are so thoroughly lacking in self-respect that they prefer to recite the prescribed text, as opposed to applying any independent research or thought to their task. It's almost as though they can hear a starting gun which remains silent to everyone else. URL:

26.Jul.2005 Senator Pat Roberts is the new enemy. Here's how to fight him. Senator Pat Roberts, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, refused to investigate the Niger forgeries, citing "an ongoing investigation" by the FBI. (Sound fmailiar?) Yet, as we mentioned earlier, he now has time to investigate the very concept of CIA cover.
An increasing number of progressives understand that these hearings will function as a tool to undermine the Plame investigation. We need to get the word out: This forthcoming "investigation" is important precisely because it will be rigged.
Now we learn that Roberts intends to
investigate an investigator. He has set his sights on Patrick Fitzgerald. (Scroll down to the final paragraph of the linked story.)
Nope, he's not going to investigate Rove or Libby or anyone else who may have functioned treasonously in this scandal. Instead, Roberts intends to "probe" (read: undermine) Fitzgerald's attempt to determine the truth.
The ever-controversial Wayne Madsen has something to say about all this -- and he also offers further details about the coordinated attacks on CIA man Larry Johnson (the subject of an item posted earlier today; scroll down a bit). Whatever your opinion of Madsen's previous work, this information strikes me as quite persuasive (I've added paragraph breaks for clarity): URL: 
Demnach besaßen die Vorfahren des modernen Menschen die Mutation schon vor 80.000 bis 800.000 Jahren. Bevor nach der gängigen Theorie die ersten Auswanderer von Afrika aus die Welt besiedelten, konnte der Mensch also wohl bereits zuverlässig Bitterstoffe erkennen - auf jeden Fall aber lange bevor er mit Ackerbau und Viehzucht begann, erklärten die Forscher.
Bereits seit mindestens 80.000 Jahren können Menschen Bitterstoffe schmecken. Die Fähigkeit half, giftige Pflanzen von essbaren zu unterscheiden, fanden Wissenschaftler bei Genanalysen heraus.

Mit dem Geschmackssinn erobern Babys die Welt. Und auch wenn sie größer werden, liefert die Zunge wichtige, unter Umständen sogar lebenswichtige Informationen. Ob eine unbekannte Pflanze gegessen wird oder nicht, ist vor allem eine Frage ihres Geschmacks. Vor allem Bitteres meidet der Mensch - und zwar schon seit Tausenden Jahren, wie ein internationales Forscherteam jetzt herausgefunden hat.

26.Jul.2005 The "Trinity" test was the first
test of a nuclear weapon. It occurred on July 16, 1945. A plutonium bomb was tested, the type of weapon later dropped on Nagasaki, Japan (the weapon used against Hiroshima was a uranium bomb, a type not tested prior to its use in World War II because it had a more simple design).

Manhattan Project

The creation of nuclear weapons arose directly out of scientific and political developments of the late 1930s, as new conceptions of atoms and the rise of fascist governments in Europe converged in the plans of the USA and the United Kingdom to develop powerful weapons utilizing nuclear fission as their primary source of energy. The Manhattan Project, as the Allied effort was called, culminated in the test of a nuclear weapon at what is now called Trinity site in July 1945 + the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki a few weeks later.

26.Jul.2005 Quote: I want to be different, like everybody else I want to be like. I want to be just like all the different people. I have no further interest in being the same, because I have seen difference all around + now I know that that's what I want. I don't want to blend in and be indistinguishable, I want to be a part of the different crowd + assert my individuality along with the others who are different like me. —

Fast acht von zehn Muslimen in Großbritannien sehen einer Umfrage zufolge einen direkten Zusammenhang zwischen der britischen Beteiligung am Irak-Krieg und den tödlichen Anschlägen von London. Auf die Frage, ob die britische Entscheidung zum Einmarsch im Irak hinter den Attentaten vom 7. Juli stehe, antworteten 58 Prozent der befragten Muslime mit "sehr", wie es in einer heute veröffentlichten Umfrage der britischen Tageszeitung "The Guardian" hieß. Weitere 21 Prozent der Befragten sahen "ein wenig" Zusammenhang, während nur zehn Prozent "gar keine" Verbindung zwischen den beiden Ereignissen herstellen konnten.
Die Hälfte der Befragten gab an, dass ihre muslimische Gemeinde nicht genug dagegen tue, um sich vor Extremisten zu schützen. Jeder fünfte Muslime sagte, er oder ein Familienmitglied seien nach den Anschlägen mit 56 Toten feindselig behandelt oder beleidigt worden.
Nach Informationen der "Times" schickte die Polizei noch mehr Scharfschützen in Zivil auf die Straße.
Muslime beklagen Anfeindungen
Gesundheitsministerin Patricia Hewitt sagte, die Briten lebten nun in einem "permanenten Terrorzustand".

Der Scotland- Yard-Chef Sir Ian Blair sprach von einem "Wettlauf gegen die Zeit".
Die Knochenhaut am Schienbein bildete innerhalb weniger Wochen große Mengen an neuem Knochengewebe. Der neu gebildete Knochen unterschied sich weder in der Druckfestigkeit noch strukturell von herkömmlichem Knochengewebe, berichten Stevens und seine Kollegen im Fachblatt "Proceedings of the National Acadamy of Sciences". Zudem lasse es sich leicht entnehmen, denn es gebe zwischen dem Schienbein und dem gezüchteten Gewebe eine Art Sollbruchstelle.
Als die Forscher das neue Knochengewebe in ein beschädigtes Schienbein transplantierten, integrierte sich dieses vollständig in den defekten Schienbeinknochen
