Dec. 7 (Bloomberg) Investment bankers in Europe may lose a chunk of this year's record bonuses because the dollar's drop against European currencies will erode payouts that can account for as much as 90 % of annual compensation. "All big U.S. houses usually pay bonuses in dollars + if you're in the U.K. or Europe it means you'll be hit quite badly at the moment," said James Heath, a London-based headhunter at Greenwich Partners, a financial-recruitment company. Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch & Co., Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and Bear Stearns Cos. plan to pay a record $36 billion in bonuses this year, according to company reports and analyst estimates.

Bring on the Afghan Study Group
Defeat in Afghanistan could be even more harmful than failure in Iraq.
By Frederick Kempe
Posted Thursday, Dec. 7, 2006, at 6:13 AM ET

RIGA, Latvia--The most poignant moment during the NATO meetings here last week came when Afghanistan's national security adviser spoke of the debt the West owed his country.

"You wouldn't be here if it weren't for us," Zalmai Rassoul told a room full of old and new Europeans.

They knew what he meant. If Afghan freedom fighters hadn't upended their Red Army occupiers, who withdrew in disgrace

in early 1989, the chain of events that led to the Berlin Wall's fall, Baltic liberation + Soviet collapse may not have followed.

His appeal went further. "You abandoned us after we defeated the Soviets," he told me.

"We warned you about the dangers of the Taliban, but you ignored us. You paid for that on 9/11.

If you abandon Afghanistan again, you will pay again." To continue reading, click here.

The library served both the general public and the agency's own staff, making available detailed scientific information vital to the nitty-gritty work of environmental protection. That decision, ostensibly for budgetary reasons, came on the heels of shuttering the EPA's regional libraries in Chicago, Dallas and Kansas City + reducing hours and public access in the libraries in Boston, New York City, San Francisco and Seattle.

08.Dec.2006 Today's Papers: Reporting Failure - BG  By Daniel Politi Posted Thursday, Dec. 7, 2006, at 5:58 AM ET

All the papers lead with the long-awaited release of the Iraq Study Group's final report, which in 96 pages includes 79 recommendations on how to proceed in Iraq.

Much of the report's main points weren't a surprise as their gist had been leaked to the press, but most didn't expect it to include such harsh criticism of President Bush's strategy in Iraq. "The current approach is not working + the ability of the USA to influence events is diminishing," Lee Hamilton, the commission's co-chair, said at a news conference on Capitol Hill. Members of the ISG were sure to point out there are no guarantees of success, even if all of their recommendations are implemented.

All the papers accompany their lead stories with Page One analysis. The Washington Post says the report "might well be titled 'The Realist Manifesto.'" And goes on to emphasize how "the bipartisan report is nothing less than a repudiation of the Bush administration's diplomatic and military approach to Iraq and to the whole region." The Los Angeles Times says the report was delivered "in two parts and two different tones" in order to make it easier for Bush to accept the recommendations. The first part had tough language and was critical of the administration, but the second was a carefully crafted list "of relatively moderate recommendations for the future" making it easier for Bush to pick and choose. USA Today notes that although Bush was gracious with the commission's members, he did not make any commitments to implement any of their recommendations. The Wall Street Journal talks to a senior administration official that tells the paper the White House is unlikely to implement most of the report's recommendations. In analyzing the report's military aspects, the New York Times is blunt and says the recommendations "are based more on hope than history and run counter to assessments made by some of its own military advisers." The ISG's projection that an increase in military trainers will bring a marked increase in the abilities of the Iraqi forces is quite unrealistic, say experts. To continue reading, click here.
08.Dec.2006 The Israel Lobby Is Having Hysterics over the ISG Report  

My, oh my, what a show -- follow it in Google News. 

The neocons are having a full-fledged nervous breakdown on the public stage over James Baker's and Lee Hamilton's rough slapdown of their big dreams in the Middle East.  

This controversy lays to rest for good the fairy tale promoted by Israeli ops like GREG PALAST that the oil industry was the mastermind behind the Iraq War. 

The oil industry was skeptical all along about neocon schemes to invade the Mideast + now wants absolutely nothing to do with the mess the neocons have created. 

The Israel lobby, on the other hand, wants to plow forward into the maelstrom, full steam ahead + is hurling nasty and vicious invective at anyone -- like oil industry kingpin James Baker -- who is getting in its way. 

When will GREG PALAST and others of their ilk admit they have been wrong all along on this issue? 

Do they have a even a hint of intellectual honesty?  Or will they be shilling for the Israel lobby until the grave?

Right-Wing Operatives Form ‘Crisis Management Firm’ To Profit Off Scandal-Ridden Conservatives - Faiz  

The Washington Post reports that, “just as the Hill is staffing up…to investigate administration officials,” former Justice Department spokespersons Mark Corallo and Barbara Comstock are forming a law/PR firm — Corallo Comstock — to help defend Bush administration aides.

Roll Call has more details:

Corallo and Comstock are forming the crisis management firm Corallo Comstock, Inc. They aim to open shop on

01.Jan.2007 -just before the new Democratic chairmen will start banging their gavels and demanding information from the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue.

“Just in time for subpoena season,” Corallo told HOH. …

Together, they’ll be doing crisis management, communications strategy, strategic consulting, government relations and basically helping GOP folk who are up a creek without a paddle.

Corallo and Comstock cut their teeth investigating the Clinton administration on the House Government Reform Committee in the

00.000.1990 -s- under then-Chairman Dan Burton (R-IN).

Each has gone on to represent prominent scandal-stricken conservatives in recent years.

Corallo, who has criticized Attorney General Alberto Gonzales for a “reckless abuse of power,” was Karl Rove’s spokesman during the Valerie Plame investigation.

Comstock worked for Scooter Libby in the Plame affair. She has also represented indicted former Congressman Tom DeLay (R-TX) and Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-CA), who is under federal investigation.

Corallo and Comstock’s new firm may be begging for more work than they can handle.

08.Dec.2006 U.S. Holocaust Memorial Distances Itself From Right-Wing Pundit - Nico  -

Yesterday, ThinkProgress noted that right-wing talk radio host Dennis Prager — who demands that Rep.-elect Keith Ellison (D-MN), a Muslim, swear in using a Christian Bible — was appointed by President Bush to the taxpayer-funded U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council.

The Holocaust Memorial Museum has now issued a statement distancing itself from Prager. The museum emphasizes that Prager “speaks solely for himself,” and that his statements “do not reflect the position of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.”

The statement also points out that the museum does not have the authority to remove Prager from its board, since he is a presidential appointee.

Yesterday, the Council on American Islamic Relations said “Prager’s continued presence on the council would send a negative message to Muslims worldwide about America’s commitment to religious tolerance.” The Anti-Defamation League, a group that combats anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry, called Prager’s views “intolerant,” “misinformed on the facts,” and “downright un-American.” Digg It!

08.Dec.2006 Labor Dispute: Gambling With Patient Care In Las Vegas - Amanda - 

On Monday, approximately 800 Las Vegas nurses were locked out of their hospitals after trying to negotiate for increased staffing and improved patient care. They had been intimidated by union-busters, suspended for supporting unions + working without a contract since June.

UnHealth Services (UHS),

the association in charge of the two hospitals, yesterday agreed to let the nurses return to work on Saturday + begin negotiations, but the work to ensure quality care is far from over. An

00.Aug.2006 study ranked the Nevada last “among the 50 states in the number of registered nurses per 100,000 residents. The

study found that Nevada had 514 registered nurses per 100,000 residents in 2000, well below the national average of 780 nurses per 100,000.”

Increased staff at hospitals — what the nurses in Nevada are fighting for — has a direct impact on improving patient care:

– “6,700 patient deaths and 4 million days of hospital care could be avoided each year by increasing staff of registered nurses .”

– Lowering a nurse’s workload by one patient decreases the mortality rate by 7 %.

– “85 % of nurses work longer on a daily basis than their scheduled hours . Recent research has documented a substantial increase in the rate of errors associated with nurses working more than twelve consecutive hours + close to half of hospital staff nurses commonly work longer than twelve hours.”

– Nurses who are union members generally make 13 % more than non-union nurses.

Nursing shortages are, in large part, a result of inadequate wages. Nurses who are union members generally make 13 % more than non-union nurses.

Therefore, by discouraging the nurses to join SEIU and refusing to negotiate with the union, UHS has been blocking better care for patients.

Taylor Marsh has more. Sign the petition to improve nursing staffing standards and patient care.

08.Dec.2006 Key Recommendations Of The Iraq Study Group - Think Progress -

The Iraq Study Group report is 125 pages long and contains 79 recommendations. Some key points:

RECOMMENDATION 22: The President should state that the USA does not seek permanent military bases in Iraq .

If the Iraqi government were to request a temporary base or bases, then the U.S. government could consider that request as it would in the case of any other government.

RECOMMENDATION 35: The USA must make active efforts to engage all parties in Iraq, with the exception of al Qaeda .

The USA must find a way to talk to Grand Ayatollah Sistani, Moqtada al-Sadr + militia and insur-
gent leaders.

RECOMMENDATION 40: The USA should not make an open-ended commitment to keep large numbers of American troops deployed in Iraq .

RECOMMENDATION 41: The USA must make it clear to the Iraqi government that the USA could carry out its plans, including planned redeployments, even if Iraq does not implement its planned changes . America’s
other security needs and the future of our military cannot be made hostage to the actions or inactions of the Iraqi government.

RECOMMENDATION 64: U.S. economic assistance should be increased to a level of $5 billion per year rather than being permitted to decline. The President needs to ask for the necessary resources and must work hard to win the support of Congress. Capacity building and job creation, including reliance on the Commander’s Emergency Response Program, should be U.S. priorities. Economic assistance should be provided on a nonsectarian basis.

RECOMMENDATION 72: Costs for the war in Iraq should be included in the President’s annual budget request, starting in FY 2008 : the war is in its fourth year + the normal budget process should not be circumvented. Funding requests for the war in Iraq should be presented clearly to Congress and the American people. Congress must carry out its constitutional responsibility to review budget requests for the war in Iraq carefully and to conduct oversight.

He urged President Bush “to try to separate out the personal issues of being blamed in history for this mistake and instead recognize it’s not about him.

Bush_On_Iraq_It_s_Not_About_You">Digg It!

Full transcript:

GORE: The fact is, this is a very bad situation. Our country has to find a way to get our troops out as quickly as possible without making the situation even worse in the manner of our leaving.

LAUER: It’s described by some as cut and stay as opposed to cut and run. Does it [the Baker-Hamilton report] do enough to acknowledge the results of the mid-term elections and the message voters sending this administration — if these are listened to, these recommendations?

GORE: Well, the report this morning is actually one of several studies. There is one in the Pentagon. There has been reportedly been one in the White House itself. They are all basically saying the same thing, Matt. This is an utter disaster. This worst strategic mistake in the history of the USA. We as a nation have to find a way, in George Mitchell’s words, to manage a disaster. But I would urge the president not to — to try to separate out the personal issues of being blamed in history for this mistake and instead recognize it’s not about him.

It’s about our country and we all have to find a way to get our troops home and to prevent a regional conflagration there.
December 6, 2006 - Think Progress - 

The Iraq Study Group met with President Bush this morning to present its 79 recommendations, which include moving “most U.S. troops out of combat roles by early 2008.” Read excerpts of the ISG report HERE.

Incoming House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), who will set the schedule for the 110th Congress, has told members they “ will have to work five days a week starting in January .” If the current Congress departs on Friday as planned, it will have been in session for just 241 days over two years, 13 days less than the “Do-Nothing Congress” of 1948.

The House yesterday “postponed a showdown vote on opening 8 million more acres in the Gulf of Mexico to oil and gas drilling ” after supporters questioned whether they had enough votes.

FEMA “has recouped less than 1 % of an estimated $1 billion in fraudulent or unjustified payments it distributed after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita,” a new report shows, bolstering criticism that the agency is “too stingy with people who have real needs, and…too willing to give taxpayer dollars to scam artists and cheats.”

Congress yesterday passed funds to preserve the notorious internment camps where Japanese-Americans were kept behind barbed wire

WWII.00.000.1944 -during- Rep. Doris Matsui (D-CA), was born in the Poston camp in Arizona

said “those who come after us will have a physical reminder of what they will never allow to happen again.”

The conflict in Darfur has spread to two neighboring countries and is now in ‘free fall’ with six million people facing the prospect of going without food or protection,” outgoing U.N. humanitarian chief Jan Egeland said.

Fifty-eight % of Americans “say the situation for troops in Iraq is getting worse,” up from 45 % in September, according to a new Harris poll. Seventy-one % think President Bush is doing only a fair or poor job in Iraq.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), the incoming chairwoman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, “will ask Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and two Democratic state lawmakers” from California “to testify about why Congress should pass federal legislation modeled on California’s landmark law to combat global warming .”

Scientists are claiming that they have evidence of water flowing on Mars within the last five years.

One of the springs even appears at a fault line, according to Malin, just as they often do on Earth. The shortness of the gulleys, which seem to flow for but a few hundred yards, might be accounted for by a process similar to a volcano's eruption on Earth, with water instead of magma building up underground + ice, instead of fire, characterizing the resulting flow."

From the article: 'It's part of Astron's Square Kilometer Array (SKA) radio telescope project. The SKA will be linked to millions of antennas collecting radio signals from space. The antennas will be spread over a large surface area of the globe but, in the aggregate, they will form a square kilometer's worth of collection area. [...] The microprocessors will essentially help the antennas capture the signals, filter out extraneous data and then convert the signals into data. Astrophysicists will then analyze the data to look for patterns. The weakest signals are the prize in this project, because they will be the oldest.'"

The DOJ's New Spin on Blocking Software - CmdrTaco 134 - Bennett Haselton has writen

"In recent arguments over the constitutionality of the Child Online Protection Act, both sides have argued over the efficiency of Internet blocking software. While COPA would prohibit commercial U.S. websites from publishing freely available material that is "harmful to minors", the ACLU has argued that blocking software is a far more effective alternative, since among other things it can block porn sites located overseas, non-commercial websites + p2p programs, all of which are beyond the reach of COPA. On the other hand, we had the surreal experience of watching the Department of Justice lawyer arguing in favor of a censorship law by saying that the blocking software alternative was unfair to children -- because it blocked too much legitimate material." The rest of Bennett's essay follows.
Richest 2% Own Half the World's Wealth - kdawson 1120+ - kop writes

"The richest 2% of adults in the world own more than half of all household wealth, according to a new study by a United Nations research institute.

Most previous studies of economic disparity have looked at income, whereas this one looks at wealth — assets minus debts.

The survey is based on data for the year 2000. Many figures, especially for developing countries, have had to be estimated.

Nonetheless, the authors say it is the most comprehensive study of personal wealth ever undertaken." The study itself is available from the World Institute for Development Economics Research.

That course of action will keep our troops safe -- although we will forever after know that we entered a police state and turned it into something even more hellish: The policy is, always was + in the minds of the Bush cabal will always will be, to occupy Iraq indefinitely while we install 14 permanent military bases, where they have absolutely no business of the Iraqi people to be there. And until they are absolutely forced to do otherwise that is where they will stay, which is what is precisely meant by Bush's recent rejection of any kind of "graceful exit."
To the contary, they are about to ask for ANOTHER 100 billion dollars!! Dennis Kucinich is calling for an end to funding for the war and occupation now. Ultimately, that's the only reason the war in Vietnam ended at all. Congress stopped paying for it.

That's what must happen now.

Webster Tarpley: "Filibuster Al Qaeda Founder Robert Gates" Webster Tarpley

(Today, Webster Tarpley released a statement against Robert Gates' nomination as Secretary of Defense.

Gates' relationship to the Muj has also recently been explored at the Daily Kos, in a post called, Robert Gates Promoted and Financed Osama Bin Laden. -r.) ---------------


"Most damning of all is the fact that Gates was one of the founders of al Qaeda, the CIA’s Arab Legion which was assembled to attack the Soviets in Afghanistan. Gates is thus part of the infrastructure that produced the patsies of 9/11..."


The nomination of Robert Gates to be Secretary of Defense must be rejected. Gates is deeply implicated in three decades of crimes by the intelligence community.

There is no reason to think he intends to begin the necessary rapid departure of US forces from Iraq.

His nomination by Bush can only be read as a deliberate provocation directed against the new Democratic Congress.

Will the Democrats fight back, or will they capitulate?

The American people are watching the Democratic Senators carefully + they are appalled by the self-congratulatory + clubby narcissism of the Senate

at a time when US forces are facing encirclement + decimation in Iraq + Afghanistan.

Senators must not only vote against Gates; they must stop the confirmation process with a filibuster.

A look at Gates’ sordid record shows why.

Most expositions of collapse theories invoke the "tremendous energy" of falling mass impacting the floors below to explain the thorough destruction of the Towers.

Yet the seismic records clearly show that

the vast majority of this mass did not participate in the destruction of the Towers since it evidently did not encounter substantial resistance to its descent until it reached the ground.

Origin of Claim that Spikes Preceded Collapses

The claim that the largest seismic signal marked the beginning of the destruction of each Tower apparently originated with reporter Christopher Bollyn, who published in

28.Aug.2002 the article "Seismic Evidence Points to Underground Explosions Causing WTC Collapse" in the American Free Press, the sister publication of the Hitler-lionizing Barnes Review.

That article, commented on here, includes the following:

Seismographs at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York, 21 miles north of the WTC, recorded strange seismic activity on

11.Sep.2001 that has

07.Dec.2006 – still- not been explained.
While the aircraft crashes caused minimal earth shaking, significant earthquakes with unusual spikes occurred at the beginning of each collapse.

The Palisades seismic data recorded a 2.1 magnitude earthquake

during the 10-second collapse of the South Tower at

9:59:04 and a 2.3 quake during the 8-second collapse of the North Tower at

The Palisades seismic record shows that -

- as the collapses began -

- a huge seismic "spike" marked the moment the greatest energy went into the ground.

The strongest jolts were all registered at the beginning of the collapses, well before the falling debris struck the earth.

These unexplained "spikes" in the seismic data lend credence to the theory that massive explosions at the base of the towers caused the collapses. -- Christopher Bollyn, American Free Press

The article mixes facts about the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory's charts with unfounded assertions.

While it's true that the station recorded 2.1 and 2.3 magnitude quakes, Bollyn provides no evidence that the spikes occurred at the beginning of each "collapse".

This story was reproduced by numerous websites + continues to be cited even by scholars who apparently have failed to check the validity of its claims.

After first providing some background on seismology, I will provide three lines of analysis showing that the largest seismic signals correspond to the times that the rubble was reaching the ground,

not to times at or before the onsets of the Tower's destruction:

Origin of Claim that Towers Fell in Ten Seconds or Less

The assertion that both Towers fell in ten seconds or less apparently originated with proponents of the collapse theory less than a month after the attack.

An article in the Journal of the The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society contains the following:

This started the domino effect that caused the buildings to collapse within ten seconds, hitting bottom with an estimated speed of 200 km per hour.

If it had been free fall, with no restraint, the collapse would have only taken eight seconds and would have impacted at 300 km/h. 1

-- Why Did the World Trade Center Collapse? Science, Engineering + Speculation
Figure 1: Table 1.1 from Chapter 1 of FEMA's WTC Building Performance Study .

The statement cites reference 1, which is listed as

"1. Presentation on WTC Collapse, Civil Engineering Department, MIT, Cambridge, MA ( 03.Oct.2001 )."

Most of the more contemporary references to the ten-second collapse times appear to have originated with FEMA's Building Performance Study.

Although the Report makes no claim about how long it took the Towers to "collapse", it includes the chart on the right describing the duration of seismic signals.

That chart gives 10 and 8 seconds for the durations of the signals corresponding to the South and North Tower "collapses", respectively.

Apparently, the only official report that gives a duration for either of the "collapses" is the 9/11 Commission Report, which states that the South Tower collapsed in ten seconds in Chapter 9, Section 2: At

11.Sep.2001 09-58-59 , the South Tower collapsed

in ten seconds,

killing all civilians and emergency personnel inside, as well a number of individuals-both first responders and civilians-in the concourse, in the Marriott + on neighboring streets.

The building collapsed into itself, causing a ferocious windstorm and creating a massive debris cloud. 156 -- -- 9/11 Commission Report

This passage cites reference 156, which is listed as "NIST report, 'Progress Report on the Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the WTC,'

18.Jun.2004 , appendix H, p. 40."

However, lists no publication dated June 18, 2004 +

NIST-SP 1000-5 June 2004 Progress Report on the Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center,

does not appear to provide any estimate of either Tower's collapse duration. Video Records Show 15-Second+ Durations

11.Jan.2000 Weapons against terrorism By Timothy Towell appeared in "The Washington Times"

00.000.1990-00.000.1994 Timothy Towell was USA ambassador to Paraguay.

Similar groups, like the Lashkar-e-Tayyba, whose membership and leadership include retired members of Pakistan's army + Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), are so much a part of the unofficial body politic in Pakistan

11.Jan.2000- now that they enjoy open material support from the Musharraf regime.

At that group's annual meeting last November, Lashkar's chief, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed ranted that "Issues cannot be solved without introducing the Islamic system.

The Jehad is being organized under the leadership of Lashkar-e-Osama [Soldiers of Osama bin Laden].

In this fight, the USA is the biggest terrorist. Its diplomatic missions here patronize us!"

Even more unsettling than the fact that this speech was made

exactly one week prior to the attack on the U.S. mission in Islamabad, is that this conference received a permit and security protection from the Pakistani government.

While worst-case scenarios were in order for the Soviet Union and other communist enemies, best-case scenarios were the order of the day for Reagan-Bush allies, including Osama bin Laden and other Arab extremists rushing to Afghanistan to wage a holy war against European invaders, in this case, the Russians.
As for the Pakistani drive to get a nuclear bomb, the Reagan-Bush administration turned to word games to avoid triggering anti-proliferation penalties that otherwise would be imposed on Pakistan.
There was a distinction made to say that the possession of the device is not the same as developing it, Dickson told me.

They got into the argument that they don't quite possess it yet because they haven't turned the last screw into the warhead.
Career Reprisals
With Gates using top-down management techniques, CIA analysts sensitive to their career paths intuitively grasped that they could rarely go wrong by backing the company line and presenting the worst-case scenario about Soviet capabilities and intentions, Ekedahl and other CIA analysts said.

Contrary to the desired White House take on Soviet-backed terrorism,

Ekedahl said the consensus of the intelligence community was that the Soviets discouraged acts of terrorism by groups getting support from Moscow for practical, not moral, reasons.
We agreed that the Soviets consistently stated, publicly and privately, that they considered international terrorist activities counterproductive and advised groups they supported not to use such tactics, Ekedahl said.

We had hard evidence to support this conclusion.
But Gates took the analysts to task, accusing them of trying to stick our finger in the policy maker's eye, Ekedahl testified
Ekedahl said Gates, dissatisfied with the terrorism assessment, joined in rewriting the draft to suggest greater Soviet support for terrorism +

the text was altered by pulling up from the annex reports that overstated Soviet involvement.
In his memoirs, From the Shadows,

Gates denied politicizing the CIA's intelligence product, though acknowledging that he was aware of Casey's hostile reaction to the analysts' disagreement with right-wing theories about Soviet-directed terrorism.
Soon, the hammer fell on the analysts who had prepared the Soviet-terrorism report.

Ekedahl said many analysts were replaced by people new to the subject who insisted on language emphasizing Soviet control of international terrorist activities.

Fall Litwinenko: Scotland Yard spricht jetzt offiziell von Mord
Der Titel des Fachaufsatzes lautet
"Is somebody watching you?" - wirst Du beobachtet?

Yekutieli ist überzeugt: Das panoptische Prinzip hat den Bewachern Macht über den Geist ihrer Gefangenen verschafft.

Big Brother lange vor Orwell und Foucault
Laut Bentham werden solcherart bewachte Sträflinge zu "einsamen und isolierten Individuen". "Eine Verschwörung fand deshalb nicht statt", sagt Yuval Yekutieli.

In detektivischer Feinarbeit hat der Forscher das Lager untersucht und konnte so die Mechanismen der Macht rekonstruieren. Seine Ergebnisse wurden jetzt im "Journal of Mediterranean Archaeology" publiziert: Die römischen Herren nutzten effizient das Gelände aus, um die Geknechteten in Schach zu halten. Der Titel des Fachaufsatzes lautet "Is somebody watching you?" - wirst Du beobachtet?

Die Idee, den unsichtbaren Blick als Mittel zur Kontrolle größerer Menschenmengen einzusetzen, schreiben Historiker dem englischen Sozialphilosophen Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) zu. Er war besessen vom Traum zur Errichtung eines "Panopticon". In diesem idealen Gefängnis sollten sich die Probleme des Strafvollzugs einzig durch ausgeklügelte Architektur lösen. Bentham ersann ein kreisrundes, mehrstöckiges Gebäude mit einem zentralen Beobachtungsturm im Inneren und ringförmig darum angeordneten Zellen - für die Bewacher offen einsehbar.
