00.Jun.2000 -starting- FAA's plan to deactivate primary radar

This is a statement from the National Association of Air Traffic Controllers

Note this point in particular:

In the rush to modernize enroute centers, we must retain current system
safeguards, such as primary radar?which FAA plans to deactivate beginning June 2000.
Primary radar is the least sophisticated type of surveillance, but it is the only tool currently available to detect aircraft or objects without an operating transponder.

If a plane is equipped with a transponder, it can fail for many reasons, including electrical + mechanical failure;

however, pilots can also choose not to turn them on.

You can imagine that people involved in illegal activities would certainly like to keep themselves invisible

?and that?s what will happen if primary radar is turned off.

If you want to make things a lot easier for "suicide hijackers" this would appear to be a great idea !

Crimes Against Humanity From Ford to Saddam:

If we do not limit our analysis of Ford to his role as a U.S. "statesman," + instead examine his behavior through an internationalist lens similar to that employed to judge Saddam Hussein +

08.Jan.2007 A drop into the abyss: Saddam jailed me but his hanging was a crime. Iraq's misery is now far worse than under his rule

Fact or propaganda?: U.S. and Iraqis clashed over Saddam's execution : Even before a smuggled cellphone camera recording revealed the derision Saddam faced on the gallows, the hanging had become a metaphor, among Maliki's critics, for how the "new Iraq" is starting to resemble, albeit in paler shade, the repressive, vengeful place it was under Saddam.

08.Jan.2007 Half of Americans Link Hussein and al-Qaeda: Many adults in the United States believe Saddam Hussein collaborated with a terrorist network, according to a poll by Knowledge Networks for the Program on International Policy Attitudes. 32 per cent of respondents think Iraq gave substantial support to al-Qaeda + 18 per cent think the Iraqi government was directly involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The Military Times released its annual poll of active-duty service members + the results showed something virtually unprecedented: a one-year decline of 10 percentage points in the number of military personnel identifying themselves as Republicans. In the 2004 poll, the percentage of military respondents who characterized themselves as Republicans stood at 60%. By the end of 2005, that had dropped to 56%. And by the end of 2006, the percentage of military Republicans plummeted to 46%. 1/8

08.Jan.2007 Terry Jones is my favorite former member of the troop. His superb new piece notes that the United States has spent one million dollars for every Iraqi killed:

Then the White House ensured there would be no overseeing of what was spent.

In the original Iraq spending bill, which earmarked the first $87bn to go down the drain, there was a provision for the general accounting office to keep a check on things, but that provision was stripped from the bill - even though the Senate had originally voted for it 97 to 0.
But what I want to know is: how do they actually spend all that money? Well the answer is: they don't.

According to the website Halliburtonwatch, the Halliburton subsidiary KBR bills the US taxpayer for $50-$80 per day for labourers working for it in Iraq, but pays them only $5-$16 per day.

And: Perhaps it's just as well that in 2003 the White House removed from the Iraq spending bill any provision to penalise war profiteers who defrauded US taxpayers.

Das Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) dürfte nach seiner Eröffnung, die für das Jahr

00.000.2013 geplant ist, zu einem der Stars unter den Großinstrumenten der Himmelsforschung werden.

Mit seinem 8,40 Meter großen dreiteiligen Spiegel soll das Teleskop den gesamten sichtbaren Himmel erfassen und 3-D-Bilder der Massenverteilung im All anfertigen. Außerdem soll es dabei helfen, die Geheimnisse von dunkler Energie und dunkler Materie zu knacken, die zusammen rund 95 Prozent des Universums ausmachen.

BND: Energiesicherheit wird 2007 großes Thema

Die Unterbrechung der Pipeline belegt aus Sicht von Ernst Uhrlau, Präsident des Bundesnachrichtendienstes (BND), die große Bedeutung der Energiesicherheit für Deutschland und die Sicherheitsbehörden.

Ein zentrales Thema in diesem Jahr sei es daher, zuverlässige Informationen über Konflikte in den betroffenen Staaten zu sammeln und zur Verfügung zu stellen, sagte Uhrlau.

Für eine konkrete Bewertung des Falles durch die deutschen Geheimdienste sei es noch zu früh.

Die Pipeline ist eine der längsten der Welt. Durch die Leitung fließen unter anderem rund ein Fünftel des deutschen Ölbedarfs. Die Pipeline verläuft in zwei Strängen, der größere versorgt Deutschland und Polen.

Unklar ist, ob Hawkings Überreste - sollte er 2009 nicht mehr leben - trotzdem ins All geschossen werden, etwa als Asche in einer Miniatur-Urne. So wie bei der Weltpremiere einer Weltraumbestattung am 21. April 1997 mit einige illustren Toten mit ihrer ganz eigenen Beziehung zum All: der US-amerikanische Psychologe Timothy Leary, der "Star Trek"-Erfinder Gene Roddenberry, der Weltraumpionier und Mitgestalter des Apollo-Programms Krafft Ehricke sowie der Teilchenphysiker Gerard O'Neill, der zu Lebzeiten über die Besiedlung des Weltraums nachgedacht hatte. Von ihnen wurden je sieben Gramm Asche ins All geschickt.
"Hätte die Industrie all das Geld und all die Zeit in den letzten Jahren nicht in die Brennstoffzelle, sondern gleich in die Batterietechnik investiert, wäre das Elektroauto heute längst auf der Straße."
Außerdem lässt die Firma im Namen von BMW Großbritannien ausrichten, dass der deutsche Mutterkonzern in keinerlei Zusammenhang mit dem Elektroprojekt stehe und die Garantie für den Mini aufgrund der technischen Veränderungen erloschen sei.

"Und was ist das Brennstoffzellen-Auto anderes als ein Elektrofahrzeug mit eigenem Kraftwerk?", fragt Steiger fast schon provozierend.

Elektroauto: Ein Mini unter Strom

Fotostrecke starten: Klicken Sie auf ein Bild (6 Bilder) Doch er schiebt gleich eine zweite rhetorische Frage hinterher: "Warum soll man den Strom teuer an Bord gewinnen, wenn man ihn auch einfach an der Steckdose tanken kann." Zwar seien die heutigen Akkus noch weit davon entfernt, genügend Fahrenergie bereitstellen zu können. Doch immer wieder hört man von Prototpyen, bei denen das Problem der zu geringen Reichweite aufgrund zu ineffizienter Stromspeicher offenbar gelöst wurde. Die Batterietechnik ist also der Schlüssel zur künftigen E-Mobilität + hinter vorgehaltener Hand bestätigt inzwischen fast jeder Pkw-Entwickler, dass alle anderen Konzepte tot seien, sobald geeignete Akkus bereit stünden.

“The Bush administration is expected to announce next week a major step forward in the building of the country’s first new nuclear warhead in nearly two decades,” the New York Times reports. “It will propose combining elements of competing designs from two weapons laboratories in an approach that some experts argue is untested and risky.” The overall bill is “estimated at more than $100 billion.”

10.Sep.2001 N591UA and N594UA were reported at 2 places at one time.
10.Sep.2001, Flight 0078 (N591UA) arrived in Newark from SFO (San Fransisco)

at 6:54 wheel on time.

However, Flight 0507, with the same tail number, 591UA departed Boston Logan for ORD (Chicago)

at 7:39 wheel off time.
Also, Boston does not have records of N591UA arriving at Logan that day and Newark only has it departing once

at 19:40 PM EST.
There seems to be a problem here.

It had 45 mins from touchdown in San Francisco before it left from Chicago.

B acktracking N594UA, i come up with a similar scenario. Were these planes swapped on September 10th?

The Naudet video
In looking at several different TV versions of this video, i found
at least 3 different audio tracks.
One has no explosion sound, one has 1 explosion sound + one has 2 explosion sounds.
In the original, you can hear the guy in the background say HOLY SH**
so, the audio was NOT just taken out alltogether, it was MODIFIED . at least twice.
One has to wonder who and why they would change the audio track?
What did they not want us to hear?


"When they told me there was a hijack, my first reaction was
'Somebody started the exercise early,'
" Nasypany later told me. The day's exercise was designed to run a range of scenarios,
including a "traditional" simulated hijack in which politically motivated perpetrators commandeer an aircraft,
land on a Cuba-like island + seek asylum. "I actually said out loud,
'The hijack's not supposed to be for another hour,'" Nasypany recalled.

—Jesus …
—And there's a possible second hijack also
—a United Airlines …
—Two planes?…
—Get the f*ck out …
—I think this is a damn input, to be honest.
The last line—"I think this is a damn input"—is a
reference to the exercise, meaning a simulations input.

Manhattan Judge Rules On Pre-Trial Motions In “Kazakhgate” Case By
Marlena Telvick
09.Jul.2004 NEW YORK (July 9) - With the trial in U.S. vs. James Giffen only several months away, the trial judge handed down several significant decisions favoring the defense last Friday, including a surprise decision to allow the defense access to classified CIA and State Department documents that could provide the basis for a new defense.

Dealing directly with the government quickly became a thing of the past.

Once Giffen entered the picture, former Chevron + others oil company executives interviewed for this series say they found they had no choice but to deal with him in order to deal with President Nazarbayev.
“Under no circumstances do foreign companies prefer to work through middlemen of the James Giffen/John Deuss variety,” says Laurent Ruseckas Director, Europe & Eurasia Practice at the Eurasia Group, a research and consulting firm in New York. “These middlemen emerge at the behest of the host governments + companies can find that they have no choice but to deal with them. That was certainly the case with Mr. Giffen in Kazakhstan + some companies -- pre-merger Exxon is the best example -- decided not to do business in the country rather than work with Giffen.”
Just how much influence did Giffen have beyond vetting prospective deals for the country? The extent of his clout with President Nazarbayev was made clear back in 1992 during the initial negotiations for the massive Tengiz field. Russian Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin had brought in Dutch oil trader Johannes “John” Deuss to play a mediating role in the Tengiz and the $2.4b Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC) deal that Chevron was negotiating at the same time to get oil out of the landlocked country.
“Russia had cut down Chevron’s quotas for utilizing its pipelines for transporting, so we needed a new pipeline or risked losing momentum on the enormous investment in the Tengiz field. Deuss (as President of the state run oil company Oman Oil Company (OOC)) made demands on Chevron that would have required us to put up nearly all the money for the pipeline, a scenario the company rejected.”
Deuss resigned from OOC in 1996 after critical negotiations with Chevron fell apart. Sources from oil companies involved in both deals say that James Giffen, because of his close advisory role to President Nazarbayev was responsible for Deuss’ ouster from the lucrative Tengiz and CPC deals. Deuss did not respond to fax and e-mail requests for comment.
It wasn’t small change. Giffen reportedly received a “success fee” of 7 to 7 ½ cents per barrel of Chevron’s share of the Tengiz oil that the company reportedly put a cap of $26 million on.
Looking back, an oil executive close to both deals says he wasn’t surprised to hear about the allegations of corruption involving middlemen in these deals. “It’s like Casablanca when they were surprised there was gambling in the casino,” he said.
An additional pre-trial hearing has been scheduled for July 29th. The trial, set for October 4th in Manhattan is expected to last 4-6 weeks.
Marlena Telvick is an independent journalist based in San Francisco. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle and in reports by PBS FRONTLINE and the Center for Investigative Reporting. This story is one in a series of reports on the ongoing “Kazakhgate” case.

In a 2001 New Yorker magazine article, investigative journalist Seymour Hersh describes Friedhelm Eronat as “a businessman who often acted on behalf of Mobil overseas.” Hersh says, “The business dealings and friendships among these three men (J. Bryan Williams, James Giffen and Friedhelm Eronat) date back many years + they have done billions of dollars worth of deals worldwide.”
According to the Giffen indictment, “CC-2” is an employee of Hovelon Trading S.A. and the signatory on an account for Denlay Associates, Ltd., a British Virgin Islands Company secretly owned by Giffen that funneled money to Nazarbayev and Balgimbayev. His identity is unknown.
Swiss legal documents confirm “CC-3” is Swiss banker Jean-Jacques Bovay who was employed at Banque Indosuez and its successor Credit Agricole Indosuez (CAI) from 1995-1999. He is alleged to have set up more than five bank accounts for a series of shell companies incorporated in the British Virgin Islands and the Bahamas controlled variously by Giffen, other co-conspirators + senior Kazakh officials, including Nazarbayev and Balgimbayev. Bovay’s attorney Maurice Harari did not reply to a request for comment.
No charges have been filed against these individuals to date.

Rulings on the Act of State Doctrine and “honest services”
In his written motion, Judge Pauley ruled against the defense’s Act of State motion which argued that because Giffen became in effect a Kazakh national due to his intimate role as advisor to President Nazarbayev, he should be immune from prosecution.
Giffen’s attorneys had argued in legal documents, “Although Giffen is an American citizen, his actions were all undertaken in his capacity as an official of the Republic of Kazakhstan at the direction and with the knowledge of the Republic’s highest officials acting under color of Kazakh law.”
Judge Pauley rejected this argument saying that “because these transactions were outside the geographic boundaries of Kazakhstan and involved transactions among foreign corporations, the Act of State Doctrine does not prohibit this court from ruling on their legality.” The judge also stated that Giffen’s letter of appointment by the Kazakh government “fails to show that his secret payments constituted official acts of Kazakhstan.”
In another victory for the defense, the judge ruled in favor of a motion to dismiss eight counts of wire fraud based on conspiracy to defraud Kazakhstan of tens of millions of dollars and depriving the Kazakh citizens of the “honest services of their government.” Stating that prosecutors had offered “the slenderest of reeds to support its expansive interpretation” of the law, the judge ruled that when Congress passed Section 1346 of Title 18 of the United States Code in 1988, it did not intend that the intangible right to honest services should encompass bribery of foreign officials in foreign countries. “Until Congress authorizes an expansion of Section 1346, this court may not consider such an extraterritorial enlargement,” he ruled.

06.Jan.2007 White House Postponing Loss of Iraq, Biden Says -By Glenn Kessler
Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said yesterday that he believes top officials in the Bush administration have privately concluded they have lost Iraq and are simply trying to postpone disaster so the next president will "be the guy landing helicopters inside the Green Zone, taking people off the roof," in a chaotic withdrawal reminiscent of Vietnam.

06.Jan.2007 Florida, ES&S and another questionable race

This DU post raises some damn good questions (lightly edited for clarity and style here) regarding the Attorney General's race:
Sumter County in Florida had undervotes of over 15% reported in 95% of their precincts. The undervote rate was over 25% in 31 percent of precincts in early voting. One precinct had over 50%.
Yet for absentee voting on paper the undervote rate was 2.8% No precinct had under 10% undervotes on election day.
Six other counties had undervotes in the Attorney General's Race of similar magnitudes.
Who would trust the results on these ES&S touch screens in this race or any race? A gross disparity between paper results and electronic results is one key sign of electoral hugger-mugger. We will have more to say about ES&S in the near future.

New Spy Chief's "Total Information" Ties - BG 
Here is a piece from Defense Tech:

"John Michael McConnell, the retired vice admiral slated to become America's new top spy, [has some] longtime associations [which] may cause him headaches during Senate confirmation hearings," notes.

"One such tie is with another former Navy admiral, John Poindexter, the Iran-contra figure who started the controversial 'Total Information Awareness' program at the Pentagon in 2002."

The international consultancy that McConnell has worked at for a decade as a senior vice president, Booz Allen Hamilton, won contracts worth $63 million on the TIA "data-mining" program, which was later cancelled [kinda sorta -- ed.] after congressional Democrats raised questions about invasion of privacy...

06.Jan.2007 The Impact of Immigrant Innovators - Zonk 179- Ramakrishnan writes

"The Wall Street Journal is carrying a report on immigrant innovators and entrepreneurs. According to the piece, nearly a quarter of all California startups which went into business between 1995 and 2005 had an immigrant as a founding member. These businesses, together, employ almost half a million workers and generated about $50 billion in sales in the year 2005. The study seems quite topical, given recent discussions in the U.S. capital. From the article: 'Supporters of an immigration bill are likely to use the study to argue the importance of foreign-born workers to the U.S. economy. An immigration bill passed by the last Congress and heavily lobbied by business groups would have greatly increased the number of green cards available to skilled workers. Business has long argued that the U.S. schools aren't turning out enough scientists, mathematicians and engineers + that the economy will lose its competitive edge without more skilled foreign workers.'"

Auf den Fernhandelsrouten (Bernstein -Gold des Nordens-, Seide, usw.) + Metallen (Zinn, Kupfer) wurden Luxusgüter transportiert.

Am Anfang gab es keine Brücken (Cäsar soll die erste Brücke über einen großen Fluß geschlagen haben) und Flußübergänge sowie Wasserstrassen wurden gemieden.

In England sind die (7) Highroads auf Hügelrücken gut dokumentiert und auch auf dem Kontinent sind die Highroads im Altertum wohl "erste" Wahl gewesen.
Ich denke, man kann auch ohne Zurhilfenahme der Brennernamen das Netz der Handelsstrassen auf den Highroads rekonstruieren.

Es sollen dabei die Wege quer durch Europa gesucht werden, die keine Flüsse kreuzen und Gebirgsketten nutzen. Das will ich an einigen Beispielen demonstrieren.
In Frankreich ist eine solche, relativ kurze Route zwischen Bordeaux am Atlantik und dem Mittelmeer (südlich oder nördlich entlang der Garonne) möglich. Siehe auch die Route des Pytheas von Massilia.
Eine zweite Route durch Frankreich vom Ärmelkanal zu den Alpen ohne Flußüberquerungen

müsste zwischen den benachbarten Quellen der Maas, Mosel + Saone den Ardennenweg folgen und führt dann nach Bern am Fuße der Alpen.

Dieser Weg führt an LaTene vorbei.
Auch in Deutschland gibt es solche Routen. Beispiel: Wer von der Ostseeküste (z.B. von Hamburg oder Rügen) zwischen Elbe + Oder nach Süden reist, und dabei die Havel auch noch aus dem Weg geht, muß zwangsläufig (vorbei an Berlin bzw. Frankfurt/Oder) den Weg zwischen Spree und Neisze folgen und erreicht dann trockenen Fußes das Erzgebirge bei Dresden.

In the piece, which Clark quickly forwarded to my BlackBerry from his Trio, de Borchgrave details Bibi Netanyahu leading the charge to lobby the Bush administration to take out Iran's nuclear facilities + paints U.S. air strikes against Iran in 2007/08 as all-but-a-done deal.

"How can you talk about bombing a country when you won't even talk to them?" said Clark. "It's outrageous. We're the United States of America; we don't do that. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the military option is off the table--but diplomacy is not what Jim Baker says it is. It's not, What will it take for you boys to support us on Iraq? It's sitting down for a couple of days and talking about our families and our hopes + building relationships."

When we asked him what made him so sure the Bush administration was headed in this direction, he replied: "You just have to read what's in the Israeli press. The Jewish community is divided but there is so much pressure being channeled from the New York money people to the office seekers."

Even Clark acknowledges that "the military option" for preventing Iranian nuclear proliferation should not be "off the table," but if the Bush administration does not share his faith that the fundamentalists who run Iran can be brought around by "sitting down for a couple of days and talking about our families and our hopes"--a concept of diplomacy that strikes us as even more naive than Jim Baker's--it must be because the White House is under the influence of "the New York money people"--i.e., rich Jews.

Here are some of the comments from Puffington Host readers (quoting verbatim): "God, that entire article is about the Jews. Hey, news flash! OTHER PEOPLE died in the Holocaust, NOT just the Jews. I'm no anti-semite or "holocaust denier" but is EVERYTHING about Israel? The only one in that room with a modicum of sense and patriotic duty was Wes Clark."
"Wes Clark for President! He's the only man I've heard who will stand up to Israel and its neocon agents(Harman, Lieberman, Emmanuel, Schumer)who support the Iraqi war because it is reshaping the middle east in Israel's favor. Let Israel attack Iran. Let Jewish mothers, instead of American mothers, mourn the loss of their sons for a while. Go Wes! I hope its contagious."
"How many hours before AIPAC and the Israel-Firsters label General Clark "anti-semtic" for his honest, accurate and informative remarks? He is violating a taboo of Washington pols, isnt he? Look what happened to President Jimmy Carter with his new book. When will we wake up?"

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto had a fiery exchange with House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank (D-MA) this week. Early on in the interview, Frank criticized Cavuto for repeatedly cutting him off. “If you’re going to interrupt every five words, we don’t have a show.”

Frank also took exception to Cavuto’s suggestion that Frank was in favor of arbitrary caps on CEO pay. “I’ve never said that. I can’t deal with all of your distortions here,” Frank said. Cavuto hit back: “Congressman, is it always incumbent upon you to be so condescending or do you just want to answer my question?”

06.Jan.2007 William J. Fallon: Wrong Man For The Job - Guest -

At a time when the United States is engaged in protracted ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, one of the worst moves the Bush administration could make is to appoint someone with no background in land warfare to oversee these operations. In another baffling move, President Bush has decided to do just that, by replacing retiring Army General John Abizaid, the current head of Central Command, with Navy Admiral William J. Fallon.

Since its inception, Central Command, which oversees the Middle East and South Central Asia, has been led only by a Army or Marine Corps General. The Navy has been largely on the sidelines while the Army and the Marine Corps have borne the brunt of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; both are starting to crack under the strain. Admiral Fallon is a fine officer and by all accounts has done a good job as head of the Pacific Command, the Navy’s traditional area of responsibility. But with little background in the Middle East or land warfare, his appointment appears to be based more on diffusing opposition to the military escalation in Iraq than on what is best for the soldiers and Marines on the ground and the country.

Set to make the disastrous decision to escalate our presence in Iraq, the President is in need of a military commander to support his decision. While General Abizaid publicly opposed the surge in troop levels in Iraq, it would be surprising if Admiral Fallon is not more agreeable.

06.Jan.2007 O’Reilly Criticizes Pre-Judging Pelosi, Then Attacks Her As ‘The Most Liberal Woman In The World’ - Nico -

Last night, Bill O’Reilly opened a discussion about new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) by pointing out that “a lot of conservatives are already hammering Ms. Pelosi.” O’Reilly said, “I don’t think that’s fair. … I don’t think it’s fair just to go in with a hammer on Nancy Pelosi. Let’s see what she’s got, what they’ll do.”

Moments later, during the same segment, O’Reilly attacked Pelosi as “the most liberal woman in the world.” Watch both comments back-to-back:

O’Reilly has previously (and falsely) bragged about coining the term “San Francisco Values,” which he apparently first used “during the October 2 broadcast of Westwood One’s The Radio Factor, when he called Pelosi a ‘far-left secular-progressive bomb thrower‘ and warned that ‘[i]f you vote for the Democrats and if they get a majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate,’ then ‘you bring to America San Francisco values.’”

Full transcript:

O’REILLY: Alright, you know, a lot of conservatives are already hammering Ms. Pelosi. I don’t think that’s fair. I obviously don’t — you know, she and I don’t get along real well. If you read Culture Warrior, you’ll get a good laugh out of a —

MORRIS: Oh, thanks for the Culture Warrior mug you sent me, Bill.

O’REILLY: It’s okay. But I don’t think it’s fair just to go in with a hammer on Nancy Pelosi. Let’s see what she’s got, what they’ll do.


MORRIS: You’re going to see the Howard Dean element of the Democratic Party increasingly breaking away from the Pelosi mainstream of the Party.

O’REILLY: Well, Pelosi is about the most liberal woman in the world. You would think that she would embrace the Howard Dean tactics, but she doesn’t seem to be doing that.
CBS: Military Tells Bush It Has Only 9,000 Troops Available For ‘Surge’ - Nico -

A State Department official leaked word this week that President Bush is considering sending “no more than 15,000 to 20,000 U.S. troops” to Iraq. “Instead of a surge, it is a bump,” the official said.

This claim was bolstered last night by CBS’s David Martin, who reported that military commanders have told Bush they are prepared to execute a troop escalation of just 9,000 soldiers and Marines into Iraq, “with another 10,000 on alert in Kuwait and the U.S.” Watch it:

The Washington Post reports today that “deep divisions remain between the White House on one side and the Joint Chiefs and congressional leaders on the other about whether a surge of up to 20,000 troops will turn around the deteriorating situation.” The Post also provides more context about an administration official’s recent claim that the escalation is “more of a political decision than a military one.“:

The U.S. military is increasingly resigned to the probability that Bush will deploy a relatively small number of additional troops — between one and five brigades — in part because he has few other dramatic options available to signal U.S. determination in Iraq, officials said. But the Joint Chiefs have not given up making the case that the potential dangers outweigh the benefits for several reasons, officials said.

Escalation backers have already begun distancing themselves from this plan. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said yesterday that not sending enough troops would be “worse than doing nothing.”

REPORTER: The president is expected to give his speech on a new way forward in Iraq next week. CBS’s David Martin has learned military commanders told the President they could execute a ‘troop surge’ of 9,000 soldiers and Marines into Iraq, with another 10,000 on alert in Kuwait and the U.S. Two army brigades — about 7,500 troops — would go into Baghdad in an effort to control the violence, clearing neighborhoods and staying long enough for reconstruction projects to take effect. 1,500 Marines would go to the western province of al-Anbar, heartland of the Sunni insurgency. This, even though the Commandant of the Marine Corps was quoted as saying he did not see a need for more battalions. But aides say the President still hasn’t decided for sure on a plan.

TONY SNOW (CLIP): The President understands this is important and needs to be done right.

ANCHOR: And details for the President’s proposal on Iraq are still being hammered out, but Pentagon officials are sure the President will order more troops to Iraq.
Pelosi and Reid write Bush on escalation. - Nico -

“Surging forces is a strategy that you have already tried and that has already failed. Like many current and former military leaders, we believe that trying again would be a serious mistake. … Adding more combat troops will only endanger more Americans and stretch our military to the breaking point for no strategic gain. And it would undermine our efforts to get the Iraqis to take responsibility for their own future.” Read the full letter HERE.
06.Jan.2007 ABC News Survey: 33 Senators Say They Were Wrong To Vote For War In Iraq - Amanda -

00.Oct.2003 77 senators voted to give President Bush authorization to go to war in Iraq. Just 23 senators voted against it.

But according to a new ABC News survey, 33 out of the original 77 senators “indicated they would vote differently knowing then what they know now.” Five senators — including three Republicans — said that in retrospect, the intelligence was so wrong that the matter should never have even been brought to a vote. These results would mean that a vote to authorize war in Iraq today would be 43-57 + the resolution would fail. (Full list of senators here.)

ABC News senior political correspondent Jake Tapper presented the survey results today on Good Morning America, noting that the survey of the senators was “a stunning repudiation of their own votes, the prewar intelligence + the war itself.” Watch it:

According to a December CBS News poll, just 39 percent of the American public now believes that the “United States did the right thing in taking military action against Iraq.”

DIANE SAWYER: An ABC News survey of the senators who voted to go to war suggests the President may have a tough time selling his plan on Capitol Hill. ABC News senior political correspondent Jake Tapper in Washington has the results for us this morning. Jake?

JAKE TAPPER: Good morning, Diane. ABC News surveyed all 77 senators who voted to authorize foce in Iraq and asked them a simple question — knowing what you know now, would you vote the same way? The shocking results. The Senate that so overwhelmly voted to give the President more powers, Democrats and Republicans, would not do so today.


VOICE: Mr. Harkin — aye.

TAPPER: In October 2002, the vote to go to war in Iraq was overwhelming. 77 for, 23 against.

VOICE: The joint resolution is passed.


TAPPER: But an ABC News survey of those senators shows that knowing then what they know now, only 43 would vote the same way + 57 would likely vote against the war. The resolution would not pass. Thirty-three U.S. senators who voted to go to war indicated to ABC News that they would vote differently knowing then what they knew now. Or that pre-war intelligence alleging Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction was so wrong, the Senate would have never even voted on the war. While overwhelmingly the regrets came from Democrats, a significant number came from Republicans.


TAPPER: Overall our survey, Diane, indicates — a survey of the senators who voted to go to war — a stunning repudiation of their own votes, the prewar intelligence + the war itself.

SAWYER: Well Jake, that’s it. More than 40 senators saying they would take back a vote. I have never heard of this.

06.Jan.2007 FACT CHECK: Congress Does Not Have To Fund Escalation In Iraq - Judd -

Last night on ABC News, newly elected Rep. Nancy Boyda (D-KS) said she would support funding for 20,000-40,000 more troops in Iraq because President Bush “is the commander in chief. …We don’t get that choice. Congress doesn’t make that decision.” Watch it:

Boyda is wrong on the facts. A recent Center for American Progress memo explains how Congress could — and should — prevent Bush from sending more troops into a civil war in Iraq without a clear mission. An excerpt:

Although the new Congress should not refuse to provide the funds that the troops already in Iraq and Afghanistan need, it can place an amendment on the supplemental funding bill that states that if the administration wants to increase the number of troops in Iraq above 150,000, it must provide a plan for their purpose and require an up or down vote on exceeding that number.

Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA), an Iraq war veteran, came out strongly in opposition to escalation, saying, “We need to listen to the military experts, people like Gen. Colin Powell, Gen. Abizaid, that say, ‘Listen, the surge isn’t going to work.’” Another newly elected member, Rep. Health Shuler (D-NC) was more circumspect. Shuler said he didn’t think escalation was “the solution” but would consider it if “that’s what our military leaders said.”


Gibson: Would you vote in favor of money to support another 20,000 to 40,000 troops in Iraq?

Boyda: I think we’re going to vote to support what the commander in chief and head of military asks to do. At least, I am certainly going to vote to support it.

Gibson: If he wants the surge, he’ll get it.

Boyda: Yes…. He is the commander in chief, Charlie. We don’t get that choice. Congress doesn’t make that decision.

Gibson: But the polls would indicate + indeed, so many voters when they came out of the ballot box, said, “We’re voting because we want something done about the war and we want the troops home.”

Boyda: They should have thought about that before they voted for President Bush not once, but twice.
Lott: I May Oppose Troop Escalation - Judd - Yesterday on MSNBC, Trent Lott (R-MS), the second ranking Republican in the Senate, said that he may oppose troop escalation in Iraq. Watch it:

Lott’s comments are particularly significant because, as the Minority Whip, he’s responsible for bringing his caucus in line with the Senate leadership’s position. If he’s not for escalation in Iraq, it’s unlikely there will be any serious effort in the Senate to get other members of his caucus to support it. Digg It! Transcript:

Matthews: Is there a chance you’ll say no to the surge?

Lott: There is.

Matthews: Thanks for making news here.
January 5, 2007 - Think Progress -

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Joe Biden (D-DE) said yesterday that he believes top officials in the Bush administration — “maybe even including the vice president” — have “ privately concluded they have lost Iraq and are simply trying to postpone disaster so the next president will ‘be the guy landing helicopters inside the Green Zone, taking people off the roof,’ in a chaotic withdrawal reminiscent of Vietnam.”

The expected replacement of Gen. John Abizaid with Navy Admiral William Fallon to oversee the Iraq war “reflects a greater emphasis on countering Iranian power, a mission that relies heavily on naval forces and combat airpower to project American influence in the Persian Gulf,” the New York Times report.

In its first legislative act, the 110th Congress voted 430-1 yesterday to approve “the broadest ethics and lobbying revision since the Watergate era.” Today, the House will vote on a package to end anonymous sponsorship of earmarks.

Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman “ fired the head of the department’s nuclear weapons program on Thursday, citing a series of security failures at national laboratories, including the discovery of a computer device containing thousands of classified documents in the home of a former worker during a drug raid by the police.”

Yesterday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) not only introduced himself to Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA), but also asked him out for coffee. “By reaching out to Congressman Goode I’m not trying to be accepted, I’m trying to build bridges. In this world there are too many misunderstandings. I want to put a human face on things,” explained Ellison.

With Zalmay Khalilzad headed to the United Nations, President Bush plans to appoint career diplomat Ryan Crocker to be U.S. Ambassador to Iraq . Crocker is currently U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan + is “among the State Department’s most respected voices in the Middle East,” the New York Times reports.

“ New Orleans repeats mistakes as it rebuilds . … [W]hile new federal guidelines call for raising houses to reduce the damage of future floods, most returning homeowners do not have to comply or are finding ways around the costly requirement, according to city officials.”

How a Pulsar gets Its Spin - Zonk 56- brian0918 writes

"Until now, the assumption has been that the rapid spin of a pulsar comes from the spin of the original star. The problem was that this only explained the fastest observed pulsars. Now, researchers at Oak Ridge have shown that the spin of a pulsar is determined by the shock wave created when the star's massive iron core collapses. From the article: 'That shock wave is inherently unstable + eventually becomes cigar-shaped instead of spherical. The instability creates two rotating flows — one in one direction directly below the shock wave and another, inner flow, that travels in the opposite direction and spins up the core. The asymmetrical flows establish a 'sloshing' motion that accounts for the pulsars' observed spin velocities from once every 15 to 300 milliseconds.'"

Why Software Sucks + Can Something Be Done About It? - Zonk 449-CPNABEND tipped us to a story carried on the Fox News site, pointing out that

a lot of programmers don't understand their users. David Platt, author of the new book 'Why Software Sucks ... And What You Can Do About It', looks at the end user experience with end user eyes. While technically inclined individuals tend to want control, Platt argues, most people just want something that works. On the other hand, the article also cites David Thomas, executive director of the Software & Information Industry Association. His opinion: Users don't know what they want. From the article: "'You don't want your customers to design your product,' he said. 'They're really bad at it.' As more and more software becomes Internet-based, he said, companies can more easily monitor their users' experiences and improve their programs with frequent updates. They have a financial incentive to do so, since more consumer traffic results in higher subscription or advertising revenues." Where does your opinion lay? Should software 'just work', or are users too lazy?

Permalink # posted by Joseph : 9:24 AM 2 comments Comments: Yes + the official story is still that Rehnquist was "cured" of his 9-10 year addiction in February 1982 after week of more careful titration. This is highly unlikely, to say the very least.
We also know that the FBI withheld 200 pages of the file + that one entire section cannot be retrieved. Or so it is reported.
Would these pages have included documentation of relapse prevention interventions consistent even with early 1980's treatment protocol? These might have included outpatient therapy, family involvement, periodic screening, etc., especially for an individual with virtually unlimited resources in such an influential position. Research shows that such addictions are exceedingly difficult to overcome + are almost never successful without such interventions after detoxification. Were there no such efforts precisely because of his position?
Either way ... were there episodes of relapses typical of so many cases like these? If so, when? During November - December of 2004, perhaps? If so, how long did they last? Were there any earlier addictions that influenced critical decision-making, say in the earley 1960's? How much did SC Justice Roberts know about this condition as a law clerk in 1980? Was there at any point a conscious decision to resume painkiller dependency, particularly after the cancer diagnosis?
I don't know and am not postulating one way or another. I am saying that these are reasonable questions to ask in the context of historical interpretation.
We, the public, may never be given these answers. I'm not sure what we would do with them even if we were. Still, I cannot seem to avert my gaze.

# posted by Anonymous : 1:36 PM   Sorry, I meant to say "weeks of more careful titration," not week.
According to the NYT in January, 1982, "Rehnquist sought help with the drug in December 1981 because it no longer relieved his pain. He entered George Washington University Hospital on Dec. 27...
By mid-January, Rehnquist returned to the bench."
There is notable discrepancy between some accounts that give Rehnquist credit for knowing he had a "problem," and those that say he entered the hospital because a 1400mg a day Placidyl habit no longer helped his back problem. Obviously, there are those who sought to protect his man and those who did not. So, the circumstances of his hospital admission still remain unclear.
Oh + what did Rehnquist ever do about that nagging back pain without Placidyl, without surgery + without any other mind-altering substances? Somehow, he didn't strike me as someone dedicated to holistic alternatives.

Turns out late Chief Justice of he Supreme Court William Rehnquist had a painkiller addiction and went completely "James Forrestal" during a hospitalization in 1981.

He became convinced that the CIA was out to "get" him and tried to escape while wearing his pajamas.
Recently released FBI documents suggest that Rehnquist also may have discouraged minority voting as an Arizona poll watcher in the 1960s.

John Dean has already written about the episode + has argued that Rehnquist lied under oath about his activities in Arizona.
The FBI under Nixon and Reagan was apparently used to intimidate any witnesses against Rehnquist during his hearings when nominated to the Court and to the Chief Justice position. See
here and here.
Rehnquist's CIA delusion is of particular interest.

Obviously, the episode owes its origins to the medication -- still, one wonders what pushed the man's delusions into that direction. This snippet from a Buzzflash interview with John Dean might provide an interesting area for further research: DEAN: The so-called Huston plan refers to the plan that Nixon tasked White House aide Tom Huston to come up with that removed virtually all restraints on domestic intelligence gathering. I don't think Rehnquist was ever involved in the Huston plan per se. I have no memory or knowledge of him being involved. I've often thought that had Nixon gone to Rehnquist -- but Rehnquist was, of course, on the Court by the time he might have wanted to do so -- to get a justification for the break-in into Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist's office, Bill Rehnquist might have been able to give an opinion that would justify that under some sort of national security theory. He always could find some precedent or sophistry to support whatever the government under Nixon thought it needed. (Emphasis added.) Although Dean does not recall any involvement by Rehnquist in the once-notorious, now-forgotten Huston plan, Rehnquist -- then the Chief Counsel to Attorney General John Mitchell -- would have been the logical choice to come up with legal justification. (Rehnquist even wrote a brief defending the Cambodian invasion.)
The intelligence wars of that era were boggling: Hoover hated the CIA, yet his underling Sullivan was tight with the Angleton faction at the Agency. Nixon fought with CIA Director Richard Helms. "Ex"-spooks McCord and Hunt went to work for CREEP, although many feel they engineered the Watergate scandal which brought Nixon down. In the midst of all this infighting, the FBI had instituted COINTELPRO against American dissidents, the CIA (legally forbidden from operating domestically) had instituted a similar program called MH CHAOS + the military had instigated Operation GARDEN PLOT, which allowed "deadly force to be used against any extremist or dissident perpetrating any and all forms of civil disorder."
Hm...maybe Rehnquist's drug-addled delusions weren't so delusional as all that...!
