RIAA Has to Disclose Attorneys Fees In Foster Case - Zonk 95+ - NewYorkCountryLawyer writes

"The RIAA has been ordered to

26.Mar.2007 -by-turn over its attorneys' billing records in Capito l v. Foster in Oklahoma.

The 4- page decision + order, issued in connection with the determination of the reasonableness of Ms. Foster's attorneys fees, requires the RIAA to produce the attorneys' time sheets, billing statements, billing records + costs and expense records.

The Court reviewed authorities holding that an opponent's attorneys fees are a relevant factor in determining the reasonableness of attorneys fees, quoting a United States Supreme Court case which held that 'a party cannot litigate tenaciously + then be heard to complain about the time necessarily spent by his opponent in response' (footnote 11 to City of Riverside v. Rivera)."

Second Republican calls for Gonzales resignation. - Nico -

USA Today: “For the Justice Department to be effective before the U.S. Senate, it would be helpful” if Gonzales resigned, Sen. Gordon Smith (R-OR) said.

“Meanwhile, GOP Sen. Norm Coleman of Minnesota said he is ‘deeply concerned about how this whole process has been handled.’”

Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., said he was ‘withholding judgment’ on Gonzales’ tenure, but characterized the attorney general’s explanations for the firings as ‘unacceptable’ + ‘mystifying.’”
Officials: Mohammed ‘confessions’ exaggerated. - Nico -

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s claims that he was responsible for dozens of successful, foiled + imagined attacks in the past 15 years relies on a loose definition of the word ‘responsible.’

UPDATE: Earlier today, ThinkProgress noted that the Pentagon had redacted Mohammed’s statements on torture in his confession statement. Human Rights Watch has called on the deleted transcript to be made public.
17.Mar.2007 Schumer: White House Holding ‘Active And Avid Discussion’ Over Gonzales Resignation - Nico -

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) held a press conference moments ago to react to new emails showing that Karl Rove + Alberto Gonzales had a deeper role in the U.S. Attorney scandal than they originally acknowledged.

Schumer told reporters,

“I know, from other sources, that there is an active + avid discussion in the White House whether [Gonzales] should stay or not,”

adding that

“the odds are very high that he will no longer be the attorney general.”

Schumer also revealed that the emails leaked today came from a disgruntled Bush administration official.

“One of the reasons everything is getting out here is that there are people, particularly in the Justice Department, who have been so disgusted with what’s happening that information is getting out,”

Schumer said. “And I think the White House + the Justice Department know it’s gonna get out whether they release it or not.” Watch it: Digg It! Transcript: (more…)

Hitler's early history has proved, it is a big mistake to underestimate the rationality of leaders who profess the craziest of ends.

A crazy leader can be both wise and wily.

Moreover, not being bounded by traditional moral or ethical restraints,

he has a distinct advantage over his rational counterparts when he decides to choose his means.
The Soviet military + especially the Soviet air defense, has rigid standards and operating procedures.

Its military doctrine and practice reflects a do-it-by-the-book attitude.

No Soviet officer would give such order unless he is out of his mind or forced to do it.

Other explanations, therefore, seem to better fit the picture.

00.Dec.1962 the Hearst-owned San Francisco Chronicle + News Call Bulletin published a UPI report informing how Ernesto "Ch‚" Guevara told a reporter in Havana that "to defend against aggression" Fidel Castro had planned a nuclear attack on key U.S. cities, including New York.

Though the Chronicle buried the story on page 16, the News Call Bulletin ran a dramatic front-page headline in big, bold letters:

"How Castro Plotted Atomic Attack on U.S.!"

The Chronicle added that "Secretary of State Dean Rusk called Guevara's remark about a nuclear attack 'just talk'."

shop in Manhattan.

FBI estimates of how many others were involved in the plot range from twenty-five to fifty people.

The mission of the terrorist team was to accomplish Castro's orders to blow up a big portion of Manhattan, including

the Statue of Liberty,

Macy's department store,

several subway stations,

the 42nd street bus terminal and

Grand Central station,

as well as several refineries along the New Jersey shore, including the Humble Oil and Refining Company in Linden.

To this effect they stored a huge cache of explosives at Garcia's shop.

But the saboteur's plan was too ambitious + included too many people +

soon the FBI got word of it + detained the main conspirators.

Had their plan worked out the way it had been conceived,

it would undoubtedly have cristallized American public opinion + asked for retaliation against Cuba.

Had it occurred during the tense days of the crisis

it may have been taken for a Russian preemptive attack on the United States +

may have triggered a spasm-like retaliatory strike on the Soviet Union,

with unpredictable consequences.


the plan failed, but Fidel Castro is a very resourceful man.

After his failed attempt to create a provocation which may have brought a nuclear confrontation between the superpowers,

Baden-Württembergs Justizminister Ulrich Goll (FDP) hat die Lockerungen aber verhindert, nachdem Klar in einem Grußwort an die Rosa-Luxemburg-Konferenz Mitte Januar klassenkämpferische Töne angeschlagen hatte.

Goll will die Hafterleichterungen erst genehmigen, wenn auch ein zweites Gutachten die Ungefährlichkeit Klars bescheinigt. Ein erstes Gutachten war laut Justizministerium "einigermaßen positiv" ausgefallen.

Die zweite Begutachtung lehnt Klar jetzt ab.
"Aber das Problem sind diese Exzesse", sagt er.
Sollten die Aufträge einbrechen oder die Zinsen stark steigen, dann könne es für die Unternehmen ohne ausreichendes Polster finanziell zu eng werden.

"Wenn die Volumina der Recaps erst einmal auf dem Tisch liegen sollten, dann wird sich mit Recht der Volkszorn an ihnen entladen", prognostiziert er.

Ungesunde Auswüchse sieht er auch bei den Gebühren, die viele Private-Equity-Gesellschaften den Unternehmen auferlegen.

Frankfurt am Main - Man hat sich eine dickes Fell zugelegt:

Für die "Heuschrecken"-Vorwürfe aus der Politik interessieren sich die meisten Mitarbeiter von Private-Equity Beteiligungsfirmen kaum noch.

Viel schwerer wiegt, dass mit Hans Albrecht nun einer aus den eigenen Reihen Vorwürfe erhebt.

Der 51-jährige Finanzinvestor ist nicht irgendwer - er hat die Beteiligungsgesellschaft Nordwind gegründet.

Zuvor war er Deutschland-Chef eines internationalen Schwergewichts im Geschäft, der Carlyle Group.

Albrechts Sorge: Wenn die Branche nicht selber für mehr Transparenz sorgt - dann wird es der Staat tun.

Die Exzesse einiger weniger würden das Öffentlichkeitsbild der Mehrheit belasten, klagt er.

Albrecht kann den Ruf nach Regulierung durchaus nachvollziehen.

"Die Liquidität eines Unternehmens gehört nicht allein den Investoren, sondern allen Stakeholdern, also auch den Mitarbeitern", betont er.

Nun will die italienische Regierung den Prozess in letzter Minute per Verfassungsgericht stoppen.

Der zuständige Mailänder Richter habe sich bei der Anklage auf Geheimdokumente gestützt und Staatsgeheimnisse verletzt, erklärte der Anwalt Luigi Panella.

Der Jurist vertritt im Auftrag der Regierung in Rom den Geheimdienstmann Marco Mancini, der neben mehreren anderen Italienern an der Verschleppung durch die CIA beteiligt gewesen sein soll.

18.Apr.2007 -vermutlich am- Das oberste Gericht Italiens wird die Frage verhandeln.

Berlin - Mit einem Einspruch beim Verfassungsgericht wollen Anwälte der Regierung in Rom die Anklage gegen 26 amerikanische CIA- Mitarbeiter + mehrere Agenten des italienischen Geheimdienstes stoppen,

die sich wegen der Verschleppung eines Predigers in Mailand vor Gericht verantworten müssen. Der spektakuläre Prozess in Mailand sollte

00.Jun.2007 -Anfang- beginnen.

Auch wenn die angeklagten CIA-Agenten nicht zu dem Verfahren erscheinen werden, gilt der Prozess als Symbol gegen die Verschleppung von Terror-Verdächtigen im Auftrag der USA nach dem 11.Sep.2001 .

"Wir werden in Europa nicht in eine Eiszeit rutschen"

Der nördliche Nordatlantik mit dem Golfstrom-System als große Meeresströmung sei für das Weltklima eine Schlüsselregion. Er bestimme nicht nur das nordeuropäische Klima, sondern habe globale Fernwirkungen. "Selbst wenn sich die Vorhersagen der Klimamodelle bestätigen sollten, werden wir hier in Europa nicht über kurz oder lang in eine Eiszeit rutschen", erklärte der Ozeanograf Jürgen Willebrand. "Bestenfalls wird die zu erwartende Klimaerwärmung in Nordeuropa etwas moderater ausfallen".

Bei einer Fläche von 25.700 Quadratkilometer und einer Wassertiefe von 19-64 Meter, hat er ein Wasservolumen von 1.645 Kubikkilometern und ist damit der flachste + wasserärmste der fünf sogenannten Großen Seen: Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Ontario und Lake Erie.

Sie trennen Kanada und die USA. Als kleinster unter diesen Fünfen ist der Eriesee am anfälligsten für plötzliche Veränderungen des Wasserstands und der Temperatur.

Beck stellte den Wahrheitsgehalt der Aussage von Scheich Mohammed in Frage: "In unserem Rechtssystem wäre ein solches Geständnis, bei dem Folter nicht ausgeschlossen werden kann, die Aussage unter Ausschluss der Anwesenheit eines Rechtsbeistands zustande gekommen und im übrigen zensiert ist, in keinem Verfahren verwertbar", sagte der Grünen-Rechtsexperte.
Der Leiter der Organisation, Kenneth Roth, warf der US-Regierung vor, sie missbrauche ihre Zensurrecht, wenn sie damit Informationen zurückhalte, "nur weil diese ungelegen oder ungesetzlich sein könnten". Die Foltervorwürfe müssten untersucht "statt unterdrückt" werden.

Terrorismusexperte Rolf Tophoven hat ebenfalls Bedenken am Geständnis des Scheichs. Es sei schwer zu bewerten, welche Aussagen von Scheich Mohammed auf Folter zurückzuführen seien, äußerte er sich in der "Berliner Zeitung". "Aber auch die Amerikaner wissen, dass unter Folter erpresste Geständnisse nur wenig Informationsgehalt haben und nicht zur Aufklärung oder neuen Fahndungserfolgen beitragen", sagte der Experte vom Institut für Terrorismusforschung in Essen.

"Astronomers have detected the remnants of an ancient collision in the Kuiper Belt, the region of bodies found outside of our solar system. The massive impact between a nearly Pluto-sized body and one half as large created a 'collisional family' of objects; this is the first such family identified in the Kuiper Belt. The largest body produced may cross Neptune's orbit in the distant future, but it's possible that smaller objects created by the smash-up have already fallen into the inner solar system as comets."

"Close on the heels of the temporary blocking of YouTube by a Turkish judge, a group of academics has published research showing that Web censorship is on the increase worldwide. As many as two dozen countries are blocking content using a variety of techniques. Distressingly, the most censor-heavy countries (which includes China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Burma and Uzbekistan) seem to be passing on their technologically sophisticated techniques to other areas of the world. 'New censorship techniques include the periodic barring of complete applications, such as China's block on Wikipedia or Pakistan's ban on Google's blogging service + the use of more advanced technologies such as 'keyword filtering', which is used to track down material by identifying sensitive words.'"
Yellowstone Supervolcano Making Strange Rumblings - Zonk 231 - Frosty Piss writes

"Supervolcanoes can sleep for centuries or millennia before producing incredibly massive eruptions that can drop ash across an entire continent. One of the largest supervolcanoes in the world lies beneath Yellowstone National Park. Significant activity continues beneath the surface. And the activity has been increasing lately, scientists have discovered. In addition, the nearby Teton Range of mountains is somehow getting shorter. The findings, reported this month in the Journal of Journal of Geophysical Research, suggest that a slow and gradual movement of a volcano over time can shape a landscape more than a violent eruption."

Martinez: ‘I’m Not Sure Rove Had Much To Do With’ Attorney Purge - Faiz -

On ’s The Situation Room, Sen. Mel Martinez (R-FL) claimed that Karl Rove did not have much to do with the Bush administration’s partisan purge of eight U.S. attorneys.

Martinez — who also serves as the Republican National Committee Chairman — rejected demands by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) that Rove appear before the Senate to discuss his role in the attorney purge. “Well, I can see how Harriet Miers would be an appropriate witness. I’m not so sure if Karl Rove has much to do with this,” he said. Watch it:

Just last month, a top Justice Department official told Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in a letter that the “Department is not aware of Karl Rove playing any role in the decision to appoint [Rove ally Tim] Griffin” as U.S. Attorney in Arkansas. But recent reports have provided evidence that “all roads lead to Rove“:

00.Jan.2005 -in early-“[T]he idea of firing all 93 U.S. attorneys was raised by White House adviser Karl Rove,

indicating Rove was more involved in the plan than previously acknowledged by the White House.”

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said Rove relayed complaints from Republican officials + others to the Justice Department and the White House counsel’s office.”

In recently-released emails, former Gonzales chief of staff Kyle Sampson writes, “I know that getting [Griffen] appointed was important to Harriet, Karl, et cetera.”

When a GOP chairman in New Mexico complained about a U.S. Attorney, Rove reportedly told him, “He’s gone.”

News reports indicate that Rove’s office may have been involved in problems involving the U.S. Attorney from Washington state, John McKay. Transcript: (more…)
15.Mar.2007 Breaking: New E-Mails Show Rove, Gonzales Had Deeper Role In U.S. Attorney Firings - Think Progress -

ABC News reports that new emails reveal that the plan for firing U.S. Attorneys originated in the White House.

Both Karl Rove + Alberto Gonzales discussed the idea of firing all 93 U.S. attorneys in early January 2005. From the article:

New unreleased e-mails from top administration officials show the idea of firing all 93 U.S. attorneys was raised by White House adviser Karl Rove

00.Jan.2005 -in early- indicating Rove was more involved in the plan than previously acknowledged by the White House.

The e-mails also show Attorney General Alberto Gonzales discussed the idea of firing the attorneys en masse while he was still White House counsel — weeks before he was confirmed as attorney general.

The e-mails directly contradict White House assertions that the notion originated with recently departed White House counsel Harriet Miers and was her idea alone.

UPDATE: ABC notes notes that the “latest e-mails show that Gonzales and Rove were both involved in the discussion + neither rejected it out of hand.”

That contradicts what Gonzales said during his press conference on Friday:

QUESTION: Can you explain what the White House role is specifically in your successor, Harriet Miers, suggested that perhaps all U.S. attorneys should be changed over?

Is that the seed that started all of this?

How does that connect to the actual terminations?

GONZALES: As we can all imagine, in an organization of 110,000 people, I am not aware of every bit of information that passes through the halls of the Department of Justice, nor am I aware of all decisions.

As a general matter, some two years ago, I was made aware that there was a request from the White House as to the possibility of replacing all the United States attorneys. That was immediately rejected by me.

I felt that that was a bad idea and it was disruptive.

UPDATE II: On March 6, the White House denied Rove was involved at all:

Q How about Karl Rove’s office? Do you know if he was involved?

DANA PERINO: I don’t believe so.

UPDATE III: On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said that Miers had suggested firing all 93 attorneys + that it was “her idea only.” He added that it “was quickly rejected by the Department of Justice.” But e-mails show that Miers suggested it

00.Feb.2005 ; it was raised by Rove and Gonzales

00.Jan.2005 -“in early-”

UPDATE IV: Earlier in the week, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said

“deputy chief of staff Karl Rove, the president’s top political adviser, vaguely recalls telling Miers that he also thought firing all 93 was ill–advised.”
15.Mar.2007 Boehner says Rove should not testify. - Nico -

The conservative establishment is circling the wagons around Karl Rove. From a press conference today with House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH):

QUESTION: Should the White House allow Karl Rove (inaudible) to testify?

BOEHNER: No, I think you’re violating a precedent there that should not be violated. U.S. attorneys serve at the pleasure of the president. The question here is what did happen and why were these seven asked to step down? Now, let’s get the facts and then we can make a judgment.

QUESTION: Does it prove (inaudible)

BOEHNER: They may, but I believe that under the separation of powers, there are limits to the extent to which Congress can subpoena or demand testimony from those who were closest to the president.

Earlier, Senate Judiciary Committee conservatives delayed a vote to subpoena Rove and Miers until next week.

Karl Rove was asked about the U.S. Attorney purge during an event today in Troy, AL. There was no talk of “mistakes” made or actions not “handle[d] properly,” a phrase White House Press Secretary Tony Snow used today.

Instead, Rove repeated the false ‘Clinton did it too’ line several times + concluded: “This to my mind is a lot of politics + I understand that’s what Congress has the right to play around with + they’re gonna do it.” Watch it: UPDATE: Paul Kiel has more.

“A Democratic plan to require the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq passed its first test

on Thursday as the House Appropriations Committee voted to endorse the proposal, overcoming Republican opposition.

Members voted 37-27 along party lines to uphold a provision in a $124 billion war spending legislation that calls for troops to leave Iraq before September 2008 + possibly sooner if the Iraqi government does not meet certain benchmarks.”

UPDATE: Via The Gavel, Ranking Member Jerry Lewis (R-CA) offered an amendment that would have stripped language restricting the use of troops who are not properly equipped or trained.

“The effort was defeated shortly after Appropriations Defense Subcommittee Chairman John Murtha spoke against it.” Watch Murtha’s speech, it’s powerful:

15.Mar.2007 Pentagon Redacted Statements of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Discussing Torture - Satyam -

According to a Pentagon transcript released yesterday, Khalid Sheik Mohammed confessed to masterminding 9/11 and “more than 30 other terror attacks or plots” at a military hearing held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Known among CIA officers as “Al-Qaeda’s toughest prisoner” in Guantanamo Bay, Mohammed has long been the subject of extreme interrogation techniques, including water boarding. “CIA officers who subjected themselves to the water boarding technique lasted an average of 14 seconds before caving in…KSM won the admiration of interrogators when he was able to last between two and two-and-a-half-minutes before begging to confess.” The CIA also reportedly abducted his seven- and nine-year-old sons and flew them to the United States for interrogation.

In his remarks to a military tribunal, Mohammed raised objections to the treatment he received, but his statements on torture were redacted by the Pentagon in their publicly released transcript:

I know American people are torturing us from seventies. [REDACTED]. I know they are talking human rights. And I know it is against American constitution, against American laws.

Mohammed claimed that CIA interrogators warned him he would be subjected to illegal treatment, calling it “bad luck”:

They said every law, they have exceptions, this is your bad luck you have been part of the exception of our laws.

Kenneth Roth of Human Rights Watch questioned the legality of the closed-door sessions and whether Mohammed’s confession was actually the result of torture.

“We won’t know that unless there is an independent hearing,” he said.

“We need to know if this purported confession would be enough to convict him at a fair trial or would it have to be suppressed as the fruit of torture?”

15.Mar.2007 Senators delay subpoenas of Rove, Miers. - Amanda -

The Senate Judiciary Committee today “authorized the use of subpoenas to five Justice Department officials in the investigation into the dismissals of eight U.S. attorneys. It postponed a vote on the authorization to use subpoenas to compel White House officials to testify, including President Bush’s top political adviser, Karl Rove + former White House counsel Harriet Miers,” at the request of conservative committee members.
15.Mar.2007 Gonzales blocked warrantless spying probe. - Nico -

Murray Waas reports: “Shortly before Attorney General Alberto Gonzales advised President Bush last year on whether to shut down a Justice Department inquiry regarding the administration’s warrantless domestic eavesdropping program, Gonzales learned that his own conduct would likely be a focus of the investigation, according to government records and interviews.”
15.Mar.2007 Congress Probes Report That Soldiers ‘Medically Unfit For Battle’ Are Being Sent To Iraq - Nico -’s Mark Benjamin, who first revealed the squalor at Walter Reed hospital two years ago, this week reported that injured U.S. soldiers are being dispatched back to Iraq:

As the military scrambles to pour more soldiers into Iraq, a unit of the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division at Fort Benning, Ga., is deploying troops with serious injuries and other medical problems, including GIs who doctors have said are medically unfit for battle. Some are too injured to wear their body armor, according to medical records.

Yesterday, House Armed Services Chairman Ike Skelton (D-MO) and Military Personnel Subcommittee Chairman Vic Snyder (D-AR) requested an immediate review of this report in a letter to the Government Accountability Office.

Also yesterday, Benjamin appeared on Hardball, one of the few major media outlets to cover the scoop. Benjamin noted that the Army does not dispute the central claim of his report. “When I interviewed the brigade commander here, he is not disputing that he is sending people back to Iraq with some of these problems. What he’s saying is that I’ll put them behind a desk and they’ll be safe,” Benjamin said. “The soldiers frankly just don’t buy it. I mean, they’ve been to Iraq before and there’s just not that many safe places.” Watch it:

Benjamin appeared with Army Sgr. Ronald Jenkins, who was ordered to Iraq despite having spinal fusion surgery that made it extremely difficult for him to wear body armor. Jenkins admitted he was “concerned about reprisal” for speaking out, but said, “this is about taking care of soldiers. And, you know, this is what I’ve done my whole career…and a lot of soldiers, like I said, they can’t speak out.” Jenkins said that since the story was published, he was informed he was no longer being sent to Iraq.

15.Mar.2007 ‘Immorality’ overlooked in time of war. - Nico -

00.000.2006 “The number of homosexuals discharged from the U.S. military under the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy dropped significantly according to Pentagon figures released Tuesday

— continuing a sharp decline since the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts began and leading critics to charge that the military is retaining gay men and lesbians because it needs them in a time of war.”
15.Mar.2007 March 15, 2007 - Think Progress -

Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has turned down requests from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to testify on the Valerie Plame leak case. Fitzgerald said he did “not believe it would be appropriate for me to offer opinions…about the ultimate responsibility of senior White House officials for the disclosure of Ms. Wilson’s identity.”

Al Qaeda mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed claimed “ responsibility for the 9/11 operation from A to Z,” according to 26 pages of transcripts released from Gitmo by the Pentagon yesterday. Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch, said, “We need to know if this purported confession would be enough to convict him at a fair trial or would it have to be suppressed as the fruit of torture?”

New York Times editorial board today condemns Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Peter Pace’s homophobic comments : “General Pace should still apologize for his remarks, forthrightly. Then perhaps some good could come out of his bigoted remarks if they added to the growing movement on Capitol Hill to finally allow gay men and lesbians to serve openly in the military.”

A new poll finds widespread agreement in 17 countries that climate change is a pressing problem . Eighty-five percent of Americans believe global warming is an important or critical threat.

With bipartisan support, the House passed three bills that would “ roll back administration efforts to shield its workings from public view.” The measures would “streamline access to records in presidential libraries, expand safeguards for government whistle-blowers + strengthen the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).” (more…)

Das gefrorene Wasser hat ein Gesamtvolumen von 1,6 Millionen Kubikkilometern, schreiben die Forscher um Jeffrey Plaut vom Jet Propulsion Laboratory der Nasa im Fachblatt "Science" (Online-Vorabveröffentlichung). Das entspricht in etwa zwei Dritteln des Grönland-Eises. Diese Menge würde reichen, den Mars unter einer elf Metern dicken Wasserschicht verschwinden zu lassen, würde das Eis schmelzen.

Downer erklärte, er habe keinerlei Bedenken wegen der Umstände, unter denen die Geständnisse des Scheichs zustande gekommen seien. Auch dass Mohammed in Guantanamo festgehalten werde, berührt den Minister nicht. "Welche Klagen es auch immer über Guantanamo gibt, mein Herz blutet nicht wegen eines Mannes, der zugibt, für eine ganze Reihe absolut abscheulicher Grausamkeiten ganz oder teilweise verantwortlich zu sein."

Der Menschenrechtsorganisation Human Rights Watch (HRW) sind die Verhörmethoden dagegen nicht gleichgültig - auch im Falle des Terroristen Mohammed. HRW-Direktor Kenneth Roth stellte heute die Legalität des Verhörs und des Geständnisses in Frage. Letzteres könnte durch Folter erpresst worden sein. Dass die Ermittler mit Mohammed nicht zimperlich umgegangen sind, war wiederholt vermutet worden.

So soll er unter anderem durch das so genannte "waterboarding" zum Reden gebracht worden sein. Dabei wird das Gesicht mit einem Tuch bedeckt und dieses immer wieder mit Wasser begossen.

Der Gefolterte kann so kaum mehr atmen und hat das Gefühl zu ertrinken. Das US-Justizministerium soll diese Methode in der Vergangenheit im Falle Mohammeds ausdrücklich erlaubt haben.

Washington hawks get power boost
Rumsfeld is winning the debate
Julian Borger in Washington
17.Dec.2001 America's top sabre-rattlers
Donald Rumsfeld

-A veteran of the cold war chosen by the vice-president, Dick Cheney, in the face of opposition from Colin Powell, now secretary of state.

His radical policies + abrasive manner initially provoked resistance from the Pentagon generals.

But the war on terrorism has made him the most powerful member of the cabinet + he is expanding his influence into foreign policy fields normally managed by the secretary of state.
Paul Wolfowitz

-Mr Rumsfeld's deputy + the foremost exponent of a new war against Saddam Hussein.

He is a former academic with a wide-ranging network of travellers and sympathisers, commonly referred to in Washington as the "Wolfowitz cabal".
Doug Feith

The Pentagon's policy supremo + a former director of the Centre for Security Policy (CSP), who has led the charge for a more pro-Israel Middle East policy.
Frank Gaffney

-a former defence policy official + Rumsfeld acolyte who now runs the CSP - a thinktank and ideological seminary for young hawks.

He advocates the scrapping of the Oslo peace process, the forceful promotion of the national missile defence system + a settling of scores with Baghdad.
Richard Perle

-Known as Ronald Reagan's "prince of darkness" for his distaste for disarmament treaties + his hawkish attitude towards the Soviet Union.

Mr Perle retains an important role in the defence policy board, a Pentagon thinktank which he chairs.
John Bolton

-The hawks' man inside the state department.

Despite the objections of Colin Powell,

he was appointed undersecretary of state for arms control, non-proliferation and international security, even though he is a committed unilateralist who opposes global arms treaties on principle.
Zalmay Khalilzad

-the top Afghan-American in the administration.

Three years ago, he signed a joint letter with Donald Rumsfeld + other hawks, calling on the Clinton administration to topple Saddam.
He is seeking to take over the Middle East portfolio when Bruce Reidel steps down later this month.

The gathering for a recent dinner at an expensive Washington hotel was officially to honour the "Keepers of the Flame"

- US security officials deemed by their more conservative colleagues to have fought the good fight for bigger defence budgets and tougher policies.
It was also a celebration.
The mostly casualty-free military successes in Afghanistan have significantly boosted the power of

Washington's "super-hawks"

-a tight-knit group of former cold warriors who have returned from more than a decade in policy exile to grasp the levers of power once more.
"It's taken us 13 years to get here, but we've arrived," the evening's host,

Frank Gaffney, the head of a hawkish Washington thinktank, declared to applause + murmurs of agreement.
The new defence establishment clustered around the defence secretary, Donald Rumsfeld + his deputy, Paul Wolfowitz, is clearly winning the policy debate against the state department.

And we're still finding documents as recently as this week that demonstrate that fact.

The suspicious rapidity of the instant press release aside, why did the World Trade Center's website carry such a blatantly fallacious explanation for the collapse of the first tower?

Even the layman knows that any modern building is anchored by core columns, not "outside cladding," + the twin towers were no different.

To rest a building's integrity on its "outside cladding" is a reversal of all commonly accepted architectural knowledge.

Why was the World Trade Center website peddling this nonsense in contradiction with the words of the twin tower's own designers?

Included in over a dozen examples compiled here, Frank A. Demartini, on-site construction manager for the World Trade Center, said that the towers could sustain "multiple impacts of jetliners" without collapsing.

In addition, Leslie Robertson, one of the two original structural engineers for the World Trade Center, stated that,

“The twin towers were in fact the first structures outside the military + nuclear industries designed to resist the impact of a jet airplane.”

Protecting the sanctity of search requests should be a search engine's top priority, said Kurt Opsahl, staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an online civil liberties group.

"You are talking about a potential treasure trove of information," he said. "A person's searches reflect their dreams, hopes and fears."
Under its new standards, Google will wipe out eight bits of the Internet protocol, or IP, address that identifies the origin of specific search requests.

After the IP addresses are altered, the information will be linked to clusters consisting of 256 computers instead of just one.
Google also will depersonalize computer "cookies" - hidden files that enable Web sites to track the online preferences and travels of their visitors.
As the owner of the Internet's largest search engine, Google has been under growing pressure to adopt greater privacy controls. Regulators in Europe have been particularly vocal about their concerns.

An ‘immoral’ hero. - Nico -

In an op-ed today, former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY) declared his opposition to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (

00.000.1993 -after voting for it in- ) and wrote this:


WWI. -World War II, a British mathematician named Alan Turing led the effort to crack the Nazis’ communication code.

He mastered the complex German enciphering machine, helping to save the world + his work laid the basis for modern computer science.

Does it matter that Turing was gay? This week, Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, said that homosexuality is “immoral” and that the ban on open service should therefore not be changed. Would Pace call Turing “immoral”?

Towleroad points out: “Incidentally, plenty of people did call Turing ‘immoral’ at the time + he killed himself with a cyanide apple a year after being convicted of ‘gross indecency’ after it was discovered he was in a homosexual relationship. Following that conviction he was ordered to undergo hormone therapy or go to prison.”
15.Mar.2007 Subpoena vote set for tomorrow. - Nico -

15.Mar.2007 White House officials using RNC email accounts? - Nico - From Dan Froomkin:

One curious aspect of yesterday’s document dump is that it shows e-mails from J. Scott Jennings, who is Karl Rove’s deputy at the White House, coming from an e-mail address at — a domain owned by the Republican National Committee .

It makes some sense that White House officials might have and use such accounts when they conduct party business, rather than White House business. But the distinction between party and government business seems to have been forgotten here — which I guess is exactly the point.

Eggen and Kane write in The Post: “ Democratic congressional aides said they will investigate whether using the private address for government business violated laws against using taxpayer resources for political work or signaled that White House officials considered the firing of U.S. attorneys to be primarily a political issue. Jennings did not return a call to his office seeking a comment.

“‘As a matter of course, the RNC provides server space and equipment to certain White House personnel in order to assist them with their political efforts,’ RNC spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt said.” (HT: First Draft)
