30.May.2006 SriLanka: EU stuft Tamilen als Terroristen ein
00.000.1970 -Seit- macht sich bei mehr als der Hälfte von 121 Zugvogel-Arten eine starke Abnahme bemerkbar.
Immer weniger Tiere dieser Spezies zählten Vogelkundler des Programms BirdLife International in Europa.
Einige seien nahezu verschwunden, schreiben Ornithologen der Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) in einer Online- Vorabveröffentlichung der Fachzeitschrift "Biological Conservation".
Zugvögel Flug ins Winterquartier führt ins Verderben
Wendehals, Neuntöter, Turteltaube und Co. sind bedroht - und zwar erheblich stärker als ihre gefiederten Kollegen, die den Winter in Europa verbringen.
Manche Zugvogel-Art zeigt 80 % weniger Exemplare als 1970. Das ist das Ergebnis der ersten europaweiten Zugvögelzählung.
Jahrtausendelang war der rund 1600 Kilometer weite Flug in den Süden für europäische Zugvögel eine zuträgliche Überlebensstrategie.
In Afrika überwinterten sie trefflich und kehrten im Frühling wohlgenährt in ihre europäischen Brutgebiete zurück - gut gerüstet für Balz und Fortpflanzung.
Doch in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten führte der Weg ins warme Winterdomizil für immer mehr Zugvögel ins Verderben.
Im Kampf um Pressefreiheit im Internet hat ein kalifornisches Berufungsgericht gegen Apple und für die Blogger entschieden. Der Fall begann
00.Dez.2004 -als auf drei Apple-zentrischen Websites Informationen zu einem geplanten aber noch unveröffentlichten Apple-Produkt mit dem Codenamen "Asteroid" auftauchten.
Apple sah durch die Berichte Firmengeheimnisse bedroht und wollte die Betreiber der Websites per Gerichtsverfahren zur Herausgabe der Identitäten ihrer Informanten zwingen.
Wie "Red Herring" schreibt, drängte der Computerhersteller sogar die Internet-Provider der drei Angeklagten auf Herausgabe von Daten.
In erster Instanz hatte die Firma mit ihrem Anliegen Erfolg. Ein Gericht in Santa Clara County entschied, dass die Wahrung von Firmengeheimnissen Priorität vor dem Quellenschutz der Blogger genieße.
Diese Entscheidung wurde mit dem Urteil im Revisionsverfahren vom Freitag widerrufen.
"Wir können uns keinen praktikablen Test oder ein Prinzip vorstellen, nach dem man legitime von illegitimen Nachrichten unterschieden könnte," heißt es in der 69- seitigen Urteilsbegründung.
Für die Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), welche die Prozesskosten aufbrachte + einen Anwalt stellte,
ist "die heutige Entscheidung ein Sieg für die Rechte der Journalisten, egal ob online oder offline, sowie für die breite Öffentlichkeit."
Nach ihrer Meinung stellt das Urteil Weblogger rechtlich auf eine Stufe mit professionellen Journalisten.
Darüber hinaus sei es ein großer Sieg für den Schutz persönlicher Daten im Internet.
Einzig die britische Newssite "The Register" ist mit dem Gerichtsspruch nicht ganz zufrieden + fürchtet,
die Begründung liefere Apple genug Munition, um das Verfahren in die nächste Instanz zu ziehen - so Apple das denn will + einen Sinn darin sieht.

29.May.2006 Ozone Layer Improving Faster Than Expected Zonk 195+SpaceAdmiral writes
"Since the implementation of the Montreal Protocol, which limited ozone-destroying gasses like CFCs, the Earth's ozone layer has been recovering.
However, new studies show that the ozone in the lower stratosphere is actually recovering faster than the Montreal Protocol alone can explain." From the article:
"It's a complicated question. CFCs are not the only things that can influence the ozone layer; sunspots, volcanoes and weather also play a role.
Ultraviolet rays from sunspots boost the ozone layer, while sulfurous gases emitted by some volcanoes can weaken it.
Cold air in the stratosphere can either weaken or boost the ozone layer, depending on altitude and latitude.
These processes and others are laid out in a review just published in the May 4th issue of Nature: 'The search for signs of recovery of the ozone layer' by Elizabeth Westhead and Signe Andersen."

But Bush is still the titular leader, which means he is open to impeachment if an opposition party gets into power. What we need are as many clear examples as we can gather of disobeyed legislation. The signing statements simply announce a willingness to disobey. Permalink
29.May.2006 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/Everyone's talking about it -- the blockbuster Boston Globe story by Charlie Savage on the real power behind the "signing statements."
It's Cheney, of course. All the presidential signing statements are vetted by Cheney's counsel and chief of staff, David Addington.
Cheney formulated his theory of the omnipotent executive during the Iran/contra scandal, when he was in Congress.
Back then, he was one of those people who argued that the Boland amendment (preventing the expenditure of funds on a war in Nicaragua) appplied only to Boland.
We already knew about the signing statements, but Savage's piece proves another point that we had long suspected: Dick Cheney really is the president:
Knowing that Addington was likely to review the bills, other White House + Justice Department lawyers began vetting legislation with Addington’s + Cheney’s views in mind,
according to another former lawyer in the Bush White House.
All these lawyers, he said, were extremely careful to flag any provision that placed limits on presidential power.

From ABC News: The government concluded its "Cyber Storm" wargame Friday,
its biggest-ever exercise to test how it would respond to devastating attacks over the Internet from anti-globalization activists, underground hackers and bloggers.
Bloggers? Yeah. Bloggers?
(For that matter: Antiglobalization activists? When did they ever do anything , beyond mounting an argument the Bush administration does not want people to heed?)
News of this exercise should be read in conjunction with the Justice Department's internet spying schemes, as chronicled in the post directly below this one - as well as the NSA's spying + the ongoing efforts to curb net neutrality. A zeal to catch pedophiles is not what motivates Gonzales to snatch up every damn email and instant message you send out.
What bothers this administration is... this .
They want to end the ongoing discussion between thousands of bloggers and millions of readers.
They hate us for our freedoms.
(P.S. McAfee participated in Cyber Storm. If you use their anti-virus product, consider switching. You are protected just as well if you combine freeware solutions.) Permalink
Die Gewaltorgien der Steinzeit scheinen Fantasieprodukte der Gegenwart zu sein. Vielmehr entpuppt sich der neolithische Kulturschock mehr und mehr als Friedensstifter:
Nur wenige Kilometer von Talheim entfernt gelang es Bauern und Jägern, in einer Gemeinschaft zusammenzuleben.
Das fand 2003 der Anthropologe Douglas Price von der University of Wisconsin heraus.
Er untersuchte die Knochen eines jungsteinzeitlichen Friedhofs am Viesenhäuser Hof und analysierte die Strontium-Isotope in den Zähnen der Bestatteten.
Die chemischen Elemente verrieten, wo sich die Menschen seit ihrer Kindheit aufgehalten und welche Nahrung sie bevorzugt hatten.
Ergebnis: Am Viesenhäuser Hof lebten zum einen Menschen, die ihr gesamtes Leben dort verbracht und die örtlichen Nahrungsquellen genutzt hatten. Ein anderer Teil aber war zugewandert.
Price erkannte, dass sich eine Gruppe von Jägern und Sammlern den hier sesshaften Bauern angeschlossen hatte.
Die neuen Nachbarn müssen sich perfekt assimiliert haben. In der Steinzeitkommune herrschte Harmonie.
Dirk Husemann ist Archäologe sowie freier Journalist und Autor in Ostbevern bei Münster.
Eigentum macht angreifbar.
Damals ereignete sich in der Nähe des heutigen Heilbronn ein Gewaltakt, der belegt, dass auch in Europa die ersten Tage der Zivilisation mit Blut getränkt waren.
Das Massengrab von Talheim gilt als Paradebeispiel für Gewalttätigkeiten auf Grund der Sesshaftigkeit.
Hier entdeckte ein Hobbygärtner im Jahr 1983 die Überreste einer erschlagenen Steinzeitsippe.
Die Toten lagen über- und untereinander auf dem engen Raum von 1,5 mal 2,5 Metern - das entspricht einem modernen Dreifachgrab.
In dieser Grube aber befanden sich 34 Leichen. Sie waren nicht sorgsam bestattet, sondern achtlos verscharrt worden. Ihr Alter: 7700 Jahre.
Das Mesolithikum hatte sich im südlichen Mittelmeerraum und in Teilen Afrikas früher herausgebildet und zeigte bereits erste Spuren der Jungsteinzeit:
Im Niltal bauten die Menschen der Qudankultur während der Ereignisse von Jebel Sahaba bereits Getreide an, sie kannten die Feldbewässerung und verschiedene Erntetechniken.
Damit entsprechen die gesellschaftlichen Zustände zur Zeit der Begräbnisse im Sudan in etwa denen, wie sie in Mitteleuropa um 7000 v. Chr. herrschten.
Bis heute ist nicht bekannt, ob die Toten von Jebel Sahaba alle zur selben Zeit bestattet wurden oder ob der Friedhof über Jahre hinweg benutzt worden ist.
Wendorf entdeckte in der Nähe eine weitere Begräbnisstätte aus derselben Zeit und machte eine erstaunliche Entdeckung. In diesen Gräbern lag kein einziger Toter mit Verletzungen.
Dieser Unterschied macht wahrscheinlich, dass Jebel Sahaba eine Grabstelle war, in dem nur jene zur letzten Ruhe gelegt wurden, die eines gewaltsamen Todes gestorben waren.
Ein Massaker ist demnach vermutlich auszuschließen.
Die Ereignisse von Jebel Sahaba liegen 12.000 Jahre zurück. Zu dieser Zeit lebte der Mensch in Nordafrika schon in einer weiter entwickelten Kultur als in Europa.
Doch in der Geschichtsforschung setzt sich mehr und mehr die Meinung durch, dass jeder Krieg nur aus seinem eigenen historischen Zusammenhang betrachtet werden kann.
Einen universellen Grund für Gewalt zwischen Gruppen gibt es demnach nicht.
Nick Thorpe vom King's Alfred College in Winchester hält elementare Emotionen für den Auslöser steinzeitlicher Gewalt:
"Ich glaube, dass Krieg ausgelöst wurde durch Fragen der Ehre - die sich aus Beleidigungen, fehlgeschlagenen Ehen oder Diebstahl ergeben.
In einer kleinen Jäger-Sammler-Gruppe ist jeder mit jedem versippt. Ein Angriff auf ein Gruppenmitglied entspricht einem Angriff auf die gesamte Gruppe.
Eine persönliche Fehde bezieht die gesamte Gemeinschaft mit ein. Von dort ist es nur ein kleiner Schritt zum Krieg."
Solche Praktiken zeigen keines falls Menschen als Leichen fressende Bestien. Sie sind Beispiele für einen sorgsamen Umgang mit dem Tod.
In einigen Fällen dient die Aufnahme des Verstorbenen in den Körper der Lebenden dem Erhalt seiner Seele. Dabei findet der Geist des Toten im Fleisch seiner Verwandten neue Heimat.
Von anderen Fällen ist bekannt, dass die Kraft des Verblichenen durch Verzehr seiner Überreste auf die Lebenden übergehen soll.
In beiden Varianten soll die Lebensenergie des Verstorbenen auf eine spirituelle Weise erhalten werden.
Das Bild vom Eingeborenen, der seine Feinde verschlingt, zeigt vor allem eins, nämlich Unverständnis gegenüber fremden Kulturen.

There were more ties to Iran-Contra on the GENI payroll: The director of GENI was Michael Roy Fugler. Fugler was a business front organizer for CIA "informant" Barry Seal.
Seal, of course, allegedly ran cocaine into the U.S. until 1986, when he turned witness against his Colombian suppliers.
He's dead, of course.
All of which goes to say that once you map this underworld out, nothing surprises you anymore.
Elgindy ... didn't that name surface during the Iran-contra investigation?
Gary Dobray, in his "Body Politic" Internet column, found another Iran-contra link, this one to Anthony's brother, Khaled:
"Recently the White House made this Iran-Contra co-conspirator [Elliot Abrams] a new National Security Council official....
[Abrams] chaired the US Commission on International Religious Freedom +, as fate would have it, [sat] on the DC Human Rights Committee chaired by Abrams was ... Anthony Elgindy's brother, Khaled Elgindy.
Khaled is a DC Arab activist who served as a policy analyst on Elliot Abrams' Human Rights Committee.
Anthony and Khaled's father, Ibrahim Elgindy, was reported by the press to have founded an umbrella group of Muslim organizations in Chicago + led a 1998 protest on behalf of Muhammad Salah, a man the US government calls a designated global terrorist.
Salah confessed to Israeli authorities that he was raising money for Hamas' suicide bombings + training cells in the US to make bombs + explosives."5
22.May 2002 FBI agents Jeffrey A. Royer + Lynn Wingate were indicted for engaging in securities fraud, racketeering + obstruction of justice. An extortion charge was also filed against Royer.
The next morning, the Washington Post printed the remarks of prosecuting U.S. attorney Alan Vinegard:
"The allegations reveal a shocking partnership between an experienced stock manipulator + law enforcement agents, undertaken for their illicit personal financial gain."
Seems Royer and Wingate dipped into the FBI's case-file database to keep tabs on the investigation and pass confidential information on to perpetrators in the stock scheme.
Kenneth Breen, an assistant federal attorney assigned to the case, added that one Amr Ibrahim "Anthony" Elgindy, a financial consultant + co-conspirator named in the indictment, notified his Salomon Smith Barney broker to to sell off $300,000 worth of stocks from his children's trust funds.
While chatting with his broker by phone, Anthony Elgindy predicted that a stock market crash was imminent + the index would fall to 3000 (it did).4
The broker contacted the FBI, but Elgindy explained away his apparent foreknowledge of the 911 terrorist assaults with the alibi that he'd been trying to unload the stock shares for several weeks
(this explanation didn't rule out the possiblility that Elgindy's foreknowkedge preceded 911 by the same margin, however).
Elgindy had co-conspired lustily for shares in a communications company, GenesisIntermedia (GENI).
It was a stock pumping orgy.
The proprietors of GENI were Adnan Khashoggi + Ramy El-Batrawi (both career criminals lurking behind their GENI blind would be instrumental in a wide-ranging disinfomation campaign waged to confuse the public after 11.Sep.2001 ).
In the sealed indictment, opened 00.Nov.---- -of the same year- a bit of transcribed dialogue was included in the evidence file that referred to an "Anthony" receiving "$1.8 million" to inflate the price of GENI stock.
Adnan Khashoggi's mercenary army of global corporate criminals lives in Mafia mansions, basks in the political limelight, enjoys privileges of royalty in tyrannical desert dystopias, sips vodka in the shadow of gleaming Moscow spires.
They are kings, Pentagon officials, priests, S&L thieves, assassins, prostitutes, nazis, Big Oil executives, metals merchants, New Age cultists, drug barons, spooks, boiler-room con artists, mobsters, dictators by the horde. And terrorists, of course.
Adnan Khashoggi is a Turkoman, the son of a doctor who tended to Abdul al-Aziz Ibn Saud.
His career as an international "connector" began in the 1950 s, while still an undergraduate at Chico State College.
His purchase of fifty Kenworth trucks for resale to Saudi Arabia's bin Laden Group demonstrated his business savvy + provided him the capital to launch his career as world-class death merchant.
In the early 1960 s, he could be found languishing or plotting world domination at Edwin Pauley's Coconut Island estate in Hawaii.
Pauley, then Democratic Party chairman, operated an oil company called Zapata with the son of Prescott Bush, the Nazi collaborator.1
Houston attorney Linda Minor sidelines as an investigator into banking + political malfeasance. She discovered that Pauley was a slimy operator years before his alliance with Bush.
"He was a spy within the White House," Minor says, "acting as a funnel for campaign funds to FDR, while at the same time gathering + transmitting information about oil policy + captured Nazi + Japanese assets back to his California business associates."
Pauley's political significance stems from his participation in Gulf of Mexico oil exploration in the 1950's when, with a concession from Mexico, he threw in with Howard Hughes and G.H.W. Bush.
"Pauley taught Bush how to launder money through corporate subsidiaries to be used for political payoffs + the financing of political campaigns," Minor notes.
"Both Pauley + Bush used this system to finance Richard Nixon's presidential campaigns."
DEA agents, Hopsicker wrote, "discovered 43 pounds of heroin aboard Hilliard's Lear.
The Orlando Sentinel hailed the bust as 'the largest seizure in Central Florida's history.'
After we'd learned the whole story, we discovered the bust had been an accident, carried out by low-level DEA operatives not clued-in to the protected nature of the trade.
Nor was this the only time Hilliard's name came up in connection with narcotics trafficking."10
00.000.1999 Wallace Hilliard, Khashoggi's lackey, bought Huffman Aviation + hired Rudi Dekkers, a Dutchman, to run it.
00.000.2000 Hilliard's LearJet was stopped on the runway at Orlando Executive Airport by armed DEA agents.
Of the 220 flight schools in Florida, Atta had to pick Huffman.
Die Finanzierung der "Hijacker" (d.h. die Hintermänner und Planer des Massenmords) sei nach wie vor "unklar", heißt es im 9/11-Abschlußbericht lapidar.
Hier hätte jede Untersuchung anzusetzen: bei der Identität der Täter, ihrem Verhalten in den Wochen und Tagen vor der Tat,
bei ihren Finanziers + Helfern + der erstaunlichen Kapazität von 19 Flugschülern, allein mit Teppichmessern vier Boeings zu entführen + die Luftabwehr der Weltmacht USA für zwei Stunden auszuschalten.
Dass schon hier, bei der ersten Frage jedes Ermittlers, Staatsanwalts, Richters - nach der Identität der Verdächtigen + ihrem Umfeld - die regierungsgesteuerte Vertuschung des 11.Sep.2001 beginnt,
wurde nirgends so deutlich wie bei den Prozessen gegen die sogenannten "20. Hijacker".
Von ihrer Basis in Tampa, Florida, kontrollierten Khashoggi und El Batrawo ein Netzwerk von Firmen, die alle das Wort Genesis im Namen führen.
Die Zahl der Genesis-Firmen in Khashoggi-Besitz, die wir gefunden haben, wächst weiter.
Es gibt (oder gab) Genesis Aviation, Inc., Genesis Aviation II, Genesis Diversified Investments, Genesis Studio and Production Corp., Genesis Media Group, Genesis Properties, , Genesis Intermedia.
Es gibt GenesisIntermedia.com, Genesis Delaware; Genesis Florida usw. usw...(...)
Die "Saudi Genesis" Unternehmen sind auf Massenmarketing mit "Infomercials" + über das Internet spezialisiert:
von "Plastic Surgeons Crème" über "Energizer" bis zu betrügerischen "Werde schnell reich!"-Schemen.
Und offenbar auch auf das Marketing von roten Heringen - Desinformation - in Sachen 9/11.
"95% der Tätigkeit der Geheimdienste rund um die Welt ist Täuschung und Desinformation", sagt einer der es wissen müsste, der ehemalige Minister + Geheimdienstkontrolleur Andreas von Bülow.
Geht man dann noch von der Regel ( 25 Rules of Disinformation: How to Fight Back ) aus, dass Desinformation natürlich nicht nur aus Fiktionen (Lügen) besteht, sondern, um erfolgreich zu sein,
möglichst viele Fakten (Wahrheit) enthalten muss - ist der Spiegelsaal komplett. Wie soll da jemand noch durchblicken?
Sander Hicks schreibt in einer Reportage über das "9/11 Truth Movement":
Die am 11.Sep.2001 stattfindenden Manöver ( Die Wargames des 11.Sep.2001 ), so Hiltons These, seien dazu benutzt worden, die Tat durchzuführen.
Bisher hat er allerdings nur in verschiedenen Interviews darüber geredet - + ist der Aufforderung u.a. des 9/11-Enzyklopädisten Nico Haupt , seine Beweise offenzulegen , nicht nachgekommen.
Mike Ruppert beeilte sich nach Erscheinen des Interviews festzustellen, dass er es gewesen sei, der die Sache mit den Wargames entdeckt hätte +
schickte eine Email mit einer strengen Warnung vor Stanley Hilton herum: Dieser würde das Gerichtsverfahren "von innen zerstören".
Vielleicht sollte Hilton um Gnade vor Ruppert zu finden, auch noch "Peak Oil" anklagen?
Hier wird deutlich, dass außer dem ohnehin komplexen Fall, der Nicht-Aufklärung durch die Regierung + dem Streuen von Desinformation, auch noch eine weitere Komponente zur Unübersichtlichkeit beiträgt:
das Platzhirschgehabe ehrgeiziger Egos.
Und doch könnte Ruppert mit seiner Warnung recht haben, denn wenn Stanley Hilton die Beweise, von denen er spricht, tatsächlich hat - warum präsentiert er sie nicht der New York Times + CNN?
Warum lässt er seine wahrhaft spektakulären Behauptungen bei Alex Jones - einem "linken" Internet-Radiohost - vom Stapel?
Hopsicker glaubt, die Antwort gefunden zu haben: die Alex-Jones-Show ist Teil des GENESIS Communications Network , das auch The Power Hour hosted, dessen Moderator Dave von Kleist das derzeit populärste Video mit der Pod-/Flash-Theorie erstellt hat: "9/11 in plane sight". Das "GENESIS Communications Network" aber wird laut Hopsicker von niemand anderem als Khashoggi kontrolliert.

Makram Majid Chams has never been wanted by George W Bush + company to my knowledge except to possibly silence for what he knows about Mohamed Atta,Jeb Bush + his pal Wally Hilliard +
their Huffman Aviation connections in Venice,Florida where Mohamed Atta trained + perhaps worked before 11.Sep.2001 .
He might wish to turn himself in to U.N. or perhaps Interpol even this may not guarantee his safety.
Makram Majid Chams may have been one of those Saudis protected by the Bush-Cheney Regime
11.Sep.2001 -immediately after- + given a free pass to Saudi Arabia along with Saudi royalty flown out just after the bloody tragedy to Saudi Arabia
where he apparently has resided + rewarded by Titan + thus W Bush ever since !
Makram Majid Chams although Lebanese is more
connected to the U.S. military - industrial complex,to Titan Corp whose employees raped and tortured innocent Iraqis than anything.
In other words he is a George W Bush kind of guy first and a Lebanese last,he just happened to be born in Lebanon

This Story is at www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0407/S00199.htm
Fey author John Gray's business is actually owned by Adnan Khashoggi.
Gray is being sued with Khashoggi in a financial scam they allegedly participated in involving Genesis Intermedia, a company incorporated by Michael Roy Fugler.
Before he became one of Adnan Khashoggi's henchmen, Fugler was the lawyer for the biggest drug smuggler in American history, Barry Seal.
Seal of course was the chief pilot˜until his assassination 00.000.1986, reportedly at Vice President Bush's behest˜in the weapons-and-drug scandal that came to be known as Iran Contra. Khashoggi played a key role brokering illegal weapons traffic from the United States to Iran. And Michael Roy Fugler, as already stated, is suing us for emotional distress over alleged inaccuracies in his portrayal in our book, 'Barry & the boys.'
Is anybody discerning a pattern here?

Overseas financing of the hard-to-trace kind
"Raising overseas financing” would seem to be just another way to say “Khashoggi,” a source explained, “+ others who are trying to hide their identities behind a veil of anonymous-sounding investment companies.”
This is one of the allegations which led regulators to halt trading in the shares of Genesis.
Although he would have to be considered a person of interest,
there hasn’t been any speculation about Adnan Khashoggi + 11.sep.2001 for the simple reason that nobody in the U.S. Government ever issued an order to round up all the “Usual Suspects.”
In fact, President Bush’s White House let so many Saudi notables slip out of the country after the attack that occupancy rates of Presidential Suites in Orlando must have taken a nosedive.
Today we may be beginning to learn why. It’s a scary lesson about “the way things are” in America today.
When it was discovered that the Florida flight school that the terror pilots flying both of the planes which crashed into the World Trade Center Towers had attended was being run as a Continuing Criminal Enterprise--at the same time they were there-- questions might have been raised, in some countries...

28.May.2006 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/One reaction to the Americablog story demands to be repeated here: I worked in the field of child sexual abuse for many years.
I took early retirement due to the effects of doing that work - and doing it well. I was devoid of any energy.
It is NONSENSE to believe that this intrusive, illegal + unamerican program, will do ANYTHING to fight child porn or child sexual abuse.
When I saw the little shrimp Gonzales stand there and lie to us, telling us about his new initiative to combat "child porn" on the net, which is a cover to allow the government to view EVERYTHING WE DO ON THE NET + to maintain files on each and every one of us, I knew this man was lying + he is not a good liar. Victims of child sexual abuse and perpetrators of child sexual abuse have not risen in real numbers with the advent of the home computer. They have been around from the beginning of time. People like Gonzales spread fear + they use the fear they create to subvert the laws and the consitution and the bill of rights of the american people Alberto Gonzales bears at least partial responsibility for the atrocities of Abu Ghraib -- and for helping to cover up the worst that happened there. And just what was the worst of it?

Bigger and brighter
The clouds were first observed above polar regions in 1885 – suggesting they may have been caused by the eruption of Krakatoa two years before.
But they have spread to latitudes as low as 40° in recent years. "They're also getting brighter + each year there are more of them than in the previous year," Russell told New Scientist .
Many researchers believe this proliferation is down to human activities. "You need three things for clouds to form: particles that water can condense onto; water; and cold temperatures," says Russell.
He says pollution and global warming are thought to be responsible for two of those factors.
Atmospheric water may be boosted by livestock farming + the burning of fossil fuels, which spew methane into the atmosphere: sunlight breaks down the methane, releasing hydrogen that can bond with oxygen to form water.
And greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide actually help to cool the upper atmosphere, where the clouds form.
That is because the atmospheric density is so low at that altitude that the gases cannot trap heat as they do closer to the Earth's surface + the heat is simply radiated into space. Alien ice

"Daddy's little nurse", schrieb die Zeitung "Daily News" .
Zadroga stirbt nur wenige Tage, nachdem Bürgermeister Bloomberg bei seiner zweiten Amtsvereidigung vor der City Hall ein neues, sorgenfreies Zeitalter ausrief und das Ende der 9/11-Depression beschwor. Der NYPD-Veteran hinterlässt seiner Familie unbezahlte Medikamenten- und Krankenhausrechungen in Höhe von mindestens 50.000 Dollar.
Eine Autopsie wird angeordnet. Bis zu deren Ergebnis, erklärt das NYPD, werde man sich weder zur Todesursache äußern noch finanzielle Verantwortung dafür übernehmen.
Am 11. September 2001 blieb Zadroga auch nach dem Einsturz von 7 WTC noch lange am Ort des Grauens. Er räumte Tonnen von Schutt beiseite. Er grub mit bloßen Händen Kollegen, Freunde und Fremde aus. Allein im ersten Monat nach den
Anschlägen verbrachte er fast 500 Stunden in der Trümmerwüste von Ground Zero, manchmal bis zu 16 Stunden am Tag und nur von kurzen Schlafpausen unterbrochen. "Er stellte seine Gesundheit und sein Leben hintan, um andere zu retten", sagt Palladino.
Dann kehrte Zadroga unauffällig in seinen normalen Dienst zurück, als wäre nichts gewesen.
Doch nach wenigen Monaten begann er über kurzen Atem zu klagen. Er bekam nur noch schwer Luft. Er musste dauernd husten und hatte starke Halsschmerzen.
Ärztliche Ultraschalluntersuchungen ergaben eine drastische Diagnose: Staublunge.
In Zadrogas Lungen hatten sich unter anderem Fiberglas + Knochensplitter festgesetzt - ganz offenbar Reste des Leichen-, Gift- + Trümmerregens von Ground Zero, den er wochenlang eingeatmet hatte.
Medikamente halfen nicht. Der Stadt ringsum begann es langsam besser zu gehen, Zadroga ging es immer schlechter.
Dann fand der Doktor auch noch Spuren des hochgiftigen Schwermetalls Quecksilber in seinem Gehirn, ebenfalls eine Spätfolge von 11.Sep.2001 .
James Zadroga - zuletzt ein Kriminalbeamter in der Manhattan South Homicide Task Force , einer ruhmreichen Eliteeinheit zur Mordaufklärung - war am
11.Sep.2001 gerade auf dem Heimweg von der Nachtschicht, als das erste Flugzeug ins World Trade Center jagte.
Zadroga, den alle nur Jim nannten, machte sofort kehrt zum schlug sich zurück bis nach Ground Zero durch.
Dort half Zadroga, Überlebende aus dem Chaos zu retten und auch den brennenden Wolkenkratzer 7 World Trade Center zu evakuieren, den zerstörten Zwillingstürmen gegenüber.
Aber auch 7 WTC war verloren, am späten Nachmittag stürzte es als letztes Gebäude an Ground Zero ein.
Zadroga konnte sich mit einem Sprint gerade noch in Sicherheit bringen.
"Er sprang dem Tod von der Schippe", erinnert sich sein Kollege Mike Palladino, der Präsident der Polizeigewerkschaft Detectives' Endowment Association, deren aktives Mitglied Zadroga war.
Zadroga, der ein Drittel seines kurzen Lebens bei der NYPD verbrachte, ist das bisher letzte Opfer der Terroranschläge vom 11.Sep.2001
Er trug winzige Reste von Ground Zero in sich bis hierher herüber, auf die andere Seite des Hudson Rivers + starb einen langen, qualvollen Tod - 1575 Tage später.

Washington - Den Alarm hatte ein Anrufer ausgelöst, der über Schüsse in der Parkgarage in einem Nebengebäude des Parlaments berichtet hatte.
Nachdem bewaffnete Einsatzteams das gesamte Gebäude durchforstet hatten, sagte ein Polizeisprecher, es seien keine Hinweise gefunden worden.
Der Fernsehsender CNN meldete unter Berufung auf Sicherheitskreise, die lauten Geräusche stammten vermutlich von einem Mechaniker, der mit einem Presslufthammer gearbeitet habe.

19.May.2006 Capitol Hill Memo: Senators Left Out of Loop Make Their Pique Known There were two types of senators at the confirmation hearing for Gen. Michael V. Hayden: the briefed + the briefed-nots.
Dem Bericht des IPCC zufolge drohen in den nächsten hundert Jahren weitere gravierende Klimaveränderungen in vielen Teilen der Erde: Die Arktis könnte schon in der zweiten Jahrhunderthälfte komplett eisfrei sein, wenn sich an den Treibhausgas-Emissionen nicht viel ändert; bis zu 90 % der Permafrostböden könnten bis zum Jahr 2100 oberflächlich auftauen und dann zusätzlich klimawirksames Methan freisetzen; Niederschläge werden in den Trockengürteln der Erde tendenziell weiter abnehmen und in feuchten Weltregionen weiter zunehmen; in mittleren Breiten werden Stürme seltener auftreten, dafür aber an Stärke gewinnen - extreme Wellenhöhen an der Küste und größere Schäden inklusive; der Meeresspiegel wird bis zum Ende dieses Jahrhunderts allein durch die thermische Ausdehnung des Wassers um bis zu 43 Zentimeter ansteigen, eine beginnende Packeisschmelze in Grönland könnte diesen Betrag noch deutlich erhöhen; in Europa werden die Außentemperaturen trotz einer vorhersehbaren Abschwächung des Golfstroms steigen, weil der Treibhauseffekt durch Kohlendioxid und andere Klimagase überwiegt.
Bei solchen Fieberschüben wird eine heute noch kaum wahrgenommene Bedrohung plötzlich ganz real: Grönlands mächtiger Eispanzer könnte komplett abschmelzen. Das ist zuletzt vor rund 125.000 Jahren geschehen, in der sogenannten Eem-Warmzeit. Wie man aus Klimarekonstruktionen weiß, stieg der Meeresspiegel damals um mindestens vier Meter.
Super-Eisschmelze im hohen Norden
Regional wird es ohnehin zu noch krasseren Temperatursprüngen kommen. Mit den heftigsten rechnen die Klimagutachter in hohen nördlichen Breiten, also in der Arktis. Dort werde die Erwärmung "etwa doppelt so stark ausfallen wie im globalen Mittel", prognostiziert der neue IPCC-Bericht. Das wären dann schon sechs Grad Celsius - oder noch weit mehr.
"Am wahrscheinlichsten ist ein Zuwachs von rund drei Grad Celsius", heißt es in dem Entwurf, der damit erstmals einen konkreten Wert nennt.
Allerdings gelte dies nur unter der Voraussetzung, dass sich der Kohlendioxid-Gehalt der Erdatmosphäre bis 2100 im Vergleich zur vorindustriellen Zeit höchstens verdoppelt - ein sehr optimistisches Zukunftsszenario. Um unter dieser Schwelle zu bleiben, müsste die Staatengemeinschaft ihre Treibhausgas-Emissionen schnellstmöglich um 60 % drosseln. Viele halten das für einen schier unmöglichen Kraftakt.
"Es ist hochgradig unwahrscheinlich, dass der gegenwärtige Klimawandel durch natürliche Schwankungen im System angestoßen wurde", heißt es in dem Entwurf.
Im Februar 2007 will die Uno den nächsten IPCC-Bericht veröffentlichen, an dem erneut hunderte Wissenschaftler aus aller Welt gearbeitet haben und der zur Richtschnur der globalen Klimapolitik der nächsten Jahre werden soll. SPIEGEL ONLINE liegt ein Entwurf des Papiers mit den wissenschaftlichen Kernpunkten vor - und seine Aussagen lesen sich wenig hoffnungsvoll. Die Konzentrationen von Kohlendioxid, Methan und Lachgas in der Atmosphäre sind demnach die höchsten seit mindestens 650.000 Jahren. Seit 20.000 Jahren habe es keinen so raschen Temperaturanstieg gegeben wie im vergangenen Jahrhundert. Bis 2100 werde sich die Erde um bis zu 4,5 Grad erwärmen.
Bei dem Entwurf handelt es sich um den Beitrag der Arbeitsgruppe I und damit um das wissenschaftliche Fundament des Reports. In den fünf Jahren seit Erscheinen des letzten IPCC-Berichts habe es eine Fülle zusätzlicher Beobachtungsdaten und Modellrechnungen gegeben, heißt es. Auf deren Basis kommen die Uno-Sachverständigen zu einem klareren Befund als noch 2001. Zweiflern und Skeptikern halten sie entgegen: Es könne heute keinen begründeten Zweifel mehr daran geben, dass der Mensch die Erderwärmung verursache. Im Gegenteil: Man habe immer mehr Belege dafür, dass er "weitere Aspekte des Klimas beeinflusst, darunter die Meereisbedeckung, Hitzewellen und andere Wetterextreme, die Luftzirkulation, Sturmbahnen und den Niederschlag".
Sonnenaktivität spielt kaum eine Rolle
In Klimabericht 2007 wird die Uno mit dramatischen Daten vor den Folgen der Erderwärmung warnen. Nach dem Report des internationalen Expertengremiums IPCC, dessen Entwurf SPIEGEL ONLINE vorliegt, ist kaum noch zu verhindern, dass die arktischen Eispanzer abschmelzen.
Hamburg - 2001 machte das Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) mit einem umfangreichen Bericht über den Klimawandel Furore. Der Report wurde zur Bibel für Umweltpolitiker und -aktivisten - seine damals noch umstrittenen Ergebnisse sind mittlerweile weitgehend akzeptiert, zumindest von seriösen Wissenschaftlern.

Frau wurde auf einer Trage aus dem Gebäude getragen.
Washington - Laut Zeugenaussagen befindet sich ein bewaffneter Mann in der Turnhalle des Rayburn-Gebäudes, berichtet CNN.
Dort sind Büros von Mitgliedern des Repräsentantenhauses untergebracht. Am Morgen sollen in der dortigen Garage Schüsse gefallen sein.
Eine Frau sei auf einer Trage aus dem Gebäude getragen worden.
Ob es sich dabei um ein Opfer der Schießerei handelt, ist bislang unklar.
Dagegen sagte eine Polizistin dem Fernsehsender, dass keine Verletzten gefunden worden seien.
Auch ein Schütze wurde noch nicht ermittelt.
Bewaffnete Polizisten haben das Kapitol abgeriegelt.
Sie hindern Menschen daran, das Haus zu betreten oder zu verlassen, und untersuchen es derzeit Raum für Raum.
Mehrere Krankenwagen haben sich vor dem Eingang positioniert.
"Die Belegschaft sagte uns, dass sie Schüsse gehört und Rauch gerochen habe", so ein Sprecher.
Möglicherweise habe es sich dabei aber auch um Knallkörper gehandelt.
Unterdessen laufen die Geschäfte auf dem Kapitol weiter. Der Senat unterbrach seine Sitzung nicht.
"Es ist etwas beunruhigend via E-Mail zu erfahren, dass im Gebäude geschossen wird", so ein Abgeordneter.
Ein weiterer Repräsentant sagte dagegen: "Sie wollen, dass wir in unseren Büros bleiben. Das ist kein Problem. Ich fühle mich sicher."
Er vermutete: "Bei dem Geräusch hat es sich bestimmt, um eine Fehlzündung oder um knallende Luftballons gehandelt."
Seit den Anschlägen vom 11.Sep.2001 sind die Sicherheitskräfte im politischen Washington nervös.
Mehrmals wurden Kongressgebäude in der Vergangenheit nach Drohungen schnell geräumt und abgeriegelt.
00.Jul.1998 kam es zu einer Schießerei, im Laufe derer zwei Polizisten starben.

27.May.2006 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ Did Porter Goss resign over Skyway? Daniel Hopsicker finally has a piece up about his more recent findings in the Skyway "junk jet" scandal.
27.May.2006 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ One aspect of the Skyway scandal that has always troubled me concerns the circumstances of the plane's capture. The Mexican authorities -- which have a history of looking the other way when paid to do so -- were apparently alerted to the drug run. More than that: The pilot got away . Only a child would believe that such things happen by accident. Someone arranged for his escape. Who might that "someone" be + what were his motives?
Here's one possible scenario:
Perhaps Porter Goss achieved his high position (and thus considered himself untouchable) because he had acquired dope on Administration officials via the Hookergate operation.
(Could he have "gotten something" on Bush himself?)
The only way to undo a blackmailer is to get something on him .
If Goss can, in fact, be linked to Skyway, then anyone who wanted rid of him would have found a way to achieve a "balance of terror."
Plenty of other scenarios suggest themselves, of course. I offer the above speculation simply to invite others to ponder these mysteries.
As you try to conjure up your own possible version of events, mull over this fascinating chunk of Hopsicker's tale: But SkyWay, which only lost $40 million of investors money, is an absolute paragon of excellence, corporate governance-wise, when compared to the DC9's previous owner...
Genesis Aviation is one of several dozen company fronts, all of which contain the name “Genesis” in the title,
controlled by one of the key figures in the Iran Contra scandal, Saudi billionaire + long-time CIA asset Adnan Khashoggi.
Last month the Securities and Exchange Commission charged Khashoggi and Ramy Al Batrawi, his lieutenant for the past 20 years, with stock fraud in U.S. District Court for Central California.
The men are accused of orchestrating a $130 million fraud involving the stock price of GenesisIntermedia.
When the helpful Khashoggi worked with Oliver North to sell arms to Iran, Ramy El-Batrawi was there, as president of a Khashoggi company, Jetborne International, indicted for illegally ferrying TOW missiles to Iran, an “enterprise” which netted someone—though not the U.S. Government or the Contras it was supposedly funding—a tidy bit of change.
Apparently neither man learned that crime doesn’t pay, because Adnan and Ramy’s recent pilferage make the Kovars look like kids stealing a candy bar from a 7-11 after school.
“Just three months after the company’s Initial Public Offering (IPO), the nearly $17 million raised in the offering was gone,” read one wire service story.
“The creative dealings of defendant El-Batrawi partly explains how this money disappeared so quickly,” reported the AP. To which I must add this comment offered by an anonymous reader in reaction to a previous post on this scandal: I did some more research. Two parties who are suspected of having foreknowledge of the
11.Sep.2001 attacks: Anthony Elgindy + Adnan Khashoggi link to each other through Costa Rican Red Sea Management.
Khashoggi associate Pakistani Rafi Khan did business with Canadian Stephen Taub.
Stephen Taub referred Rakesh Saxena, the man who embezzled $88M from an Thai bank, to Red Sea Management.
Red Sea Management was involved in SkyWay's mysterious 'DuPont' investment fund, which injected $7M including a DC-9 into SkyWay in 2004.
Through a shareholder in SkyWay related Royal Sons, also last owner of the captured plane had activities in a hangar of Huffman aviation at the same time the hijackers were trained there.
Atta + Al-Shehhi are believed to have practiced landings + take-offs after closing hours on the Clearwater airport where Royal Sons has it's HQ.
I don't think so.
It might connect many pieces of the 11.Sep.2001 jigsaw puzzle, including Sibel Edmonds hints, The Israeli Art Students DEA groups + more. Permalink

Go here. Support the cause. And when you come back, tell me if you think this goal really can be accomplished -- and, more importantly, how it can be accomplished. Permalink

a BBC article about an agreement which will begin construction on the second most expensive scientific collaboration, after the ISS : the world's first large-scale fusion reactor. From the article: "The seven-party consortium, which includes the European Union, the US, Japan, China, Russia and others, agreed last year to build Iter in Cadarache, in the southern French region of Provence ... He said that the participants would aim to ratify their agreement before the end of the year so construction on the facility could start in 2007. Officials said the experimental reactor would take about eight years to build. The EU is to foot about 50% of the cost to build the experimental reactor. If all goes well with the experimental reactor, officials hope to set up a demonstration power plant at Cadarache by 2040. "

26.May.2006 https://madcowprod.com/ ... there is no doubt that this is all just a series of freak coincidences.
26.May.2006 https://madcowprod.com/ Arizona: Fraud like Florida, but with a dry heat
Greyhound during this time period also “owned” a Beech King Air used by CIA pilot + drug smuggler Barry Seal.
After his death it became the favorite plane of then Texas-Governor George W. Bush.
But no good deed goes unpunished + Greyhound Leasing soon came up a little short. The company had somehow “ misplaced” $120 million dollars.
26.May.2006 https://madcowprod.com/ U.S. officials vehemently denied the plane belonged to the CIA.
At the time the plane was registered to General John Singlaub’s Southern Air Transport.
Much later, Southern Air Transport went bankrupt + the proceedings revealed that the company had been owned by an entity called Finova Capital, a CIA front company set up in Arizona and headquartered in Canada to escape American financial disclosure requirements.
26.May.2006 https://madcowprod.com/ The DC9 has also been “owned” by Finova Capital, revealed in the early 90’s as a CIA front which also “owned” the C123 military cargo plane used by notorious drug smuggler + CIA pilot Barry Seal, which was later shot down over Nicaragua with Eugene Hasenfus onboard.
Genesis Aviation is one of several dozen company fronts, all of which contain the name “Genesis” in the title, controlled by one of the key figures in the Iran Contra scandal, Saudi billionaire and long-time CIA asset Adnan Khashoggi.
26.May.2006 https://madcowprod.com/ There is also this nugget, which we hope a prosecuting attorney someday asks him about, preferably under oath: “ i'm fortunate to be a senior advisor to the us congress and have dined with the president.”
26.May.2006 https://madcowprod.com/ Working backwards from the present, the plane’s registered owner at the time it was busted was SkyWay Aircraft, the only tangible asset of SkyWay Communications Holding, a firm whose existence, as we’ve previously seen, served as nothing more than a meager excuse to run a penny stock fraud scam which bilked investors of a reported $40 million dollars... in less than three years.
SkyWay shareholders will no doubt be gratified to learn that the bankruptcy of the firm seems not to have adversely affected the firm’s top officers financially.
SkyWay’s 74 yr. old C hairman Glenn Kovar is currently building a six bedroom vacation chalet on a lake several miles north of Ducktown, Tennessee,
tucked away in a picturesque rural setting boasting splendid whitewater rafting.

"With a tiered Internet, such routing technology could be used preferentially to deliver either the telecoms' own services or those of companies who had paid the requisite fees. What does this mean for the rest of us? A stealth Web tax, for one thing. 'Google and Amazon and Yahoo are not going to slice those payments out of their profit margins and eat them,' says Ben Scott, policy director for Free Press, a nonprofit group that monitors media-related legislation. 'They're going to pass them on to the consumer. So I'll end up paying twice. I'm going to pay my $29.99 a month for access + then I'm going to pay higher prices for consumer goods all across the economy because these Internet companies will charge more for online advertising.'"

25.May.2006 Mega- Pleite: Geschworene sprechen Enron- Bosse schuldig 25.May.2006 VIDEO: Ross Defends Report That Hastert Is ‘In The Mix’ of Federal Corruption Investigation Think Progress
Last night, ABC’s Brian Ross reported that, according to a federal law enforcement source, “the Congressional bribery investigation now includes Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, based on information from convicted lobbyists who are now cooperating with the government.”
Subsequently, the Justice Department flatly denied the story.
This morning, Brian Ross appeared on ABC and defended his report. Ross said, “Despite flat and repeated denials from the Department of Justice, federal law enforcement officials…describe the 64-year-old Illinois Republican [Hastert] as ‘very much in the mix’ of the corruption investigation.” Watch it:
ROSS: Good morning Robin. Despite flat and repeated denies from the Department of Justice, federal law enforcement officials insist to ABC news the FBI investigation of capitol hill corruption has widened to include potentially Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert. Officials describe the 64-year-old Illinois republican as “very much in the mix” of the corruption investigation. Something the speaker told ABC News he was unaware of.
HASTERT: I know nothing about it.
ROSS: Part of the investigation is said to involve a letter Hastert wrote three years ago urging the Secretary of Interior to block a casino on an Indian reservation that would have competed with other tribes.
The other tribes were represented by convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who reportedly has provided details of his dealings with Hastert as part of his plea agreement with the government.
The letter was written shortly after a fund-raiser for Hastert at a restaurant owned by Abramoff. Abramoff and his clients contributed more than $26,000 at the time.
Hastert says the story is untrue and has demanded a retraction.
Our sources say Hastert is not considered the formal subject or target at this time but
that the FBI will soon seek documents from him + other members of congress based on information from the convicted lobbyist Abramoff
The investigation, of course, is in it’s very early stages. It is very possible it will turn out there is nothing unlawful about Hastert relationship with Abramoff.
25.May 2006 Think Progress
President Bush has appointed a new senior domestic policy adviser : Karl Zinsmeister, a “longtime scholar at the American Enterprise Institute,” + editor of the think tank’s magazine.
Last June, he wrote about the “central reality” in Iraq: “With the exception of periodic flare-ups in isolated corners, our struggle in Iraq as warfare is over.”
“The FBI is seeking interviews with top House Members from both parties
to determine whether they leaked details of the National Security Agency’s domestic surveillance program to The New York Times,
further fanning the flames of an already tense relationship between Capitol Hill + the Bush administration.”
One Senator said “the FBI will interview current and former Senators about the leak as well.”
A new study finds New Orleans “is the U.S. city most likely to be struck by hurricane force winds during the 2006 storm season.”

"Much of the talk at the 2006 World Wide Web conference has been about the technologies behind the so-called semantic web.
The idea is to make the web intelligent by storing data such that it can be analyzed better by our machines, instead of the user having to sort and analyze the data from search engines. From the article:
'Big business, whose motto has always been time is money, is looking forward to the day when multiple sources of financial information can be cross-referenced to show market patterns almost instantly.'
However, concern is also growing about the misuses of this intelligent web as an affront to privacy and security."
