RADIO DJ FIRED FOR CELEBRATING REAGAN'S DEATH
[Yahoo news 12.06.04]
"A college disc jockey who put on a radio show celebrating Ronald Reagan's death was fired Friday from his position as the station's business manager. Scott Hornyak, a 28-year-old undergraduate student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, had been suspended indefinitely from his disc jockey job at KSUA-FM after the Sunday show. 'They're firing me because of what I said, and the public's reaction to what I said,' said Hornyak... he berated Reagan, who died June 5, for his foreign policy in Latin America, Iraq and Afghanistan, and for his response to the AIDS epidemic. Hornyak said the show was 'a celebration that Ronald Reagan was dead, was finally dead,' and that he told listeners he wanted to 'walk over the newly laid dirt' on Reagan's grave."

SADDAM WILL MISS OLD BUDDY REAGAN
[Aaron Glantz Inter Press Service 12.06.04]
The Iraq issue today may never have arisen if it were not for the support former U.S. president Ronald Reagan gave Saddam Hussein. Reagan died Saturday Jun. 5 in his Los Angeles home. Reagan's two terms as President correspond roughly to the Iran-Iraq war, the longest conventional war of the 20th century. Saddam Hussein invaded Iran on Sep. 22, 1980 with the stated goal of gaining control of the Shatt al-Arab, the river that has formed a border between Iran and Iraq, and which would give Iraq better access to the Persian Gulf. The U.S. government was then interested in containing Iran, which had just become one of Washington's major enemies after the Islamic Revolution lead by Ayatollah Khomeini. U.S. hostages had been taken, and Ronald Reagan had just been elected partly on the strength of criticizing President Jimmy Carter's inability to free them. "America and Saddam thought the same way at that time, because America wanted to destroy the revolution in Iran," retired Iraqi Brigadier-General Zekki Daoud Jabber told IPS in an interview in his Baghdad home.

SUDANESE TELL OF MASS RAPE
The pro-government Janjaweed Arab militia has been accused of using systematic rape, as well as killing and destroying the villages of black Africans, in the conflict in Sudan's western Darfur region... Many witnesses say the population of Kaileck was held hostage by the Janjaweed for two months, despite repeated appeals to the commissioner of Kass. Men were also picked up daily and killed... Fifteen-year-old Aziza says she was also raped by the Janjaweed back in February. 'When Kaileck was attacked, I fled towards the mountains, but five horsemen caught me and took me far away in a field,' she says. 'All five of them raped me twice. They kept me for 10 days. They whipped me... They tied up my arms and my legs and would only release me when they raped me. They called me Abeid (slave).'

An official commission examining Europe's worst massacre since World War II 'established participation of (Bosnian Serb) military and police units, including special (police) units' in the deaths... During the height of the three and a half-year Bosnian war, Serb troops overran a U.N.-declared safe zone in Srebrenica and slaughtered up to 8,000 Muslim men and boys in what the U.N. war crimes tribunal has declared an act of genocide. The Bosnian Serbs have long been blamed for the 1995 massacre, but no official has clearly acknowledged that until now."

CONCEPTIONS ERRONEES, MAIS POPULAIRES (ET RECIPROQUEMENT)
[Haaretz, 11 juin 2004]
Yasser Arafat desire-t-il reellement la destruction d'Israel plutot qu'une solution au conflit? Cette conception est devenue une evidence en Israel, mais nombreux au sein du monde du renseignement n'y croient tout simplement pas.
Dimanche, alors que Shaul Mofaz, ministre de la defense et partisan du plan de desengagement, transpirait au conseil des ministres, le chef du departement diplomatie/securite du ministere de la defense semblait calme et serein. Amos Gilad, qui a dirige la division recherche du renseignement militaire (RM) de 1996 a 2001, et de 2001 a 2003 a coordonne les actions dans les territoires, a eu plus que sa part dans la decision d'Ariel Sharon de prendre des mesures unilaterales. C'est lui qui a fourni a Ehoud Barak, le predecesseur de Sharon, l'argumentaire professionnel de la theorie "pas de partenaire palestinien". Base de la theorie : Barak a fait une offre genereuse a Yasser Arafat, et quand ce dernier l'a refusee, son vrai visage s'est revele : celui d'un terroriste dont le but est la destruction d'Israel.

WHAT DISNEY’S 60-YEAR-OLD PROPAGANDA CARTOONS CAN TEACH US ABOUT WAR
[Orange County Weekly 11.06.04]
It remains one of my favorite college lectures: during a film-history course at Orange Coast College during the late 1990s, professor Steven Valley shared his Kafka-esque ordeal in trying to view propaganda films the Walt Disney Studios produced during World War II. Phone calls to various Disney historians went unanswered, Valley recounted; written requests never reached their destination; visits by Valley to Disney’s Burbank archives resulted in trips from one office to another, all to no avail. After months of fruitless inquiry, Disney brass finally relented. They shoved Valley into an unlit basement room, carted in a TV/VCR set, popped in a videocassette containing the desired cartoons, and left him for about three hours. No notes were allowed. No recorders. No questions. Upon the tape’s completion, security guards escorted Valley out and told him never to ask for a second screening since it wouldn’t happen.
"They were," Valley said, "the greatest things I’d ever seen in my life"—well-animated, hilarious and highly effective in their brainwashing efforts. But Valley also understood why Disney shrouded them in secrecy. Like all Hollywood studios during World War II, Disney turned over its facilities to the Pentagon and produced pro-war films preaching sacrifice and Jap-bashing. But Walt Disney devoted his company to the cause with an intensity unmatched by any other mogul. Unlike the animation departments at Warner Bros. and MGM, Disney’s cartoons openly called for annihilation rather than mere light-hearted mayhem, placed its characters on the front lines instead of metaphorical battlegrounds, and accomplished it in a way so beloved by the Armed Forces that, according to Thomas Doherty’s 1993 book, Projections of War: Hollywood, American Culture, and World War II, "Sandbags and anti-aircraft guns surrounded the only Hollywood studio designated as a ‘key war-production plant’ and ‘essential industry.’""

TIA NOW VERIFIES FLIGHT OF SAUDIS

[St. Petersburg Times 09.06.04]
"For nearly three years, White House, aviation and law enforcement officials have insisted the flight never took place and have denied published reports and widespread Internet speculation about its purpose. But now, at the request of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks, TIA officials have confirmed that the flight did take place and have supplied details. The odyssey of the small LearJet 35 is part of a larger controversy over the hasty exodus from the United States in the days immediately after 9/11 of members of the Saudi royal family and relatives of Osama bin Laden... The FAA is still not talking about the flights, referring all questions to the FBI, which isn't answering anything, either. Nor is the 9/11 Commission."
RUMSFELD APPROVED TORTURE FOR JOHN WALKER LINDH
[The London Independent 09.06.04]
John Walker Lindh, the so-called American Taliban, was stripped naked and tied to a stretcher during interrogation after the office of Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld ordered intelligence officers to 'take the gloves off' when questioning him. Mr Rumsfeld's legal counsel instructed the officers to push the limits when questioning Lindh, captured in Afghanistan with Taliban and al-Qa'ida forces in late 2001. The treatment of Lindh appears to foreshadow the abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib... A memo this week revealed that in March 2003, administration lawyers concluded that President George Bush had the authority under executive privilege to order any sort of torture or interrogation of prisoners."
GEN. SANCHEZ APPROVED VARIETY OF TORTURE TECHNIQUES
[Washington Post 12.06.04]
"Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez, the senior U.S. military officer in Iraq, borrowed heavily from a list of high-pressure interrogation tactics used at the U.S. detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and approved letting senior officials at a Baghdad jail use military dogs, temperature extremes, reversed sleep patterns, sensory deprivation, and diets of bread and water on detainees whenever they wished, according to newly obtained documents. The U.S. policy, details of which have not been previously disclosed, was approved in early September, shortly after an Army general sent from Washington completed his inspection of the Abu Ghraib jail and then returned to brief Pentagon officials on his ideas for using military police there to help implement the new high-pressure methods... before last October, they could be imposed without first seeking the approval of anyone outside the prison. That gave officers at Abu Ghraib wide latitude in handling detainees."

"Dr. Allawi's group, the Iraqi National Accord, used car bombs and other explosive devices smuggled into Baghdad from northern Iraq, the officials said. Evaluations of the effectiveness of the bombing campaign varied, although the former officials interviewed agreed that it never threatened Saddam Hussein's rule... The Iraqi government at the time claimed that the bombs, including one it said exploded in a movie theater, resulted in many civilian casualties... One former Central Intelligence Agency officer who was based in the region, Robert Baer, recalled that a bombing during that period 'blew up a school bus; schoolchildren were killed.'"

PADILLA'S DIRTY BOMB NEVER WOULD HAVE WORKED
[Yahoo News 10.06.04]
The 'dirty bomb' allegedly planned by terror suspect Jose Padilla would have been a dud, not the radiological threat portrayed last week by federal authorities, scientists say... uranium's extremely low radioactivity is harmless compared with high-radiation materials - such as cesium and cobalt isotopes used in medicine and industry that experts see as potential dirty bomb fuels... (Uranium) is billions of times less intense than that of cesium-137, cobalt-60 and other radioisotopes. It's not radioactivity but another property of uranium - its ability in some forms to sustain atomic chain reactions - that makes it a fuel for nuclear power and bombs. The Justice Department didn't respond directly when asked this week whether it had consulted with experts and knew that uranium wouldn't make a dirty bomb."

2003 STATE DEPARTMENT REPORT ON GLOBAL TERRORISM FULL OF ERRORS
[Los Angeles Times 09.06.04]
The State Department is scrambling to revise its annual report on global terrorism to acknowledge that it understated the number of deadly attacks in 2003, amid charges that the document is inaccurate and was politically manipulated by the Bush administration. When the most recent Patterns of Global Terrorism report was issued April 29, senior Bush administration officials immediately hailed it as objective proof that they were winning the war on terrorism... But on Tuesday, State Department officials said they underreported the number of terrorist attacks in the tally for 2003, and added that they expected to release an updated version soon. Several U.S. officials and terrorism experts familiar with that revision effort said the new report will show that the number of significant terrorist incidents increased last year, perhaps to its highest level in 20 years... the report stopped counting terrorist incidents on Nov. 11, leaving out several major attacks, including bombings of two synagogues, a bank and the British Consulate in Turkey that killed 62 and injured more than 700."

More than a year before 9/11, a Pakistani-British man told the FBI an incredible tale: that he had been trained by bin Laden's followers to hijack airplanes and was now in America to carry out an attack. The FBI questioned him for weeks, but then let him go home, and never followed up. Now, the former al-Qaida insider is talking... (Niaz Khan) said his trainers never told him exactly what his terrorist mission in the United States would be. He said he was told he would learn more details from a half dozen other trained terrorists who, he was told, already were in the U.S. For three weeks, FBI counter-terrorist agents in Newark, N.J. interrogated Khan... NBC News has learned that Khan passed not one but two FBI polygraphs. A former FBI official says Newark agents believed Khan and tried to aggressively follow every lead in the case, but word came from headquarters saying, 'return him to London and forget about it.'"

DOCUMENT WARNS GUANTANAMO EMPLOYEES NOT TO TALK
[USA Today 11.06.04]
Military and civilian employees at the U.S. prison for suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, were warned recently not to talk with attorneys who represent detainees held there, according to a document prepared by the legal office of the Army... soldiers and interrogators are not required to give defense attorneys statements about the 'personal treatment of detainees' or any 'failure to report actions of others.' It also says that refusing to cooperate with defense attorneys 'will not impact your ... career.' (In other words: Your job is safe as long as you don't squeal.) The warning - titled 'Interaction with Defense Counsel' - has surfaced at a time when the treatment of the nearly 600 detainees at Guantanamo is under scrutiny because of the abuse and sexual humiliation of Iraqis in U.S. custody at the Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad. Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller, former commander at Guantanamo, went to Iraq last year to share interrogation techniques used in Cuba."

Former CIA Director George Tenet committed perjury in his April 14 testimony before the 9/11 Commission when he claimed he had not met with President Bush in the month before the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon... The following day, AP reported the CIA issued what was described as a correction after the Director 'misspoke.' The Agency asserted that its records showed Tenet meeting with Bush on August 17 and 31, and then on at least six occasions in September prior to Tuesday, the 11th. However, that CIA announcement omits mention of the visit that then DCI Tenet apparently made to the President's Crawford, Texas ranch on August 24.

It called for 'red teaming' operations, in which scientists would figure out how to execute terrorist attacks."

"A San Leandro sausage factory owner accused of killing three meat inspectors boasted to a friend that he would get out of jail in a few years and that the case would be made into a movie, the lone survivor of the rampage testified Thursday. Stuart Alexander told Todd Sorce, a meat department manager at a Hayward supermarket who visited him in jail, that the victims 'were nothing but a bunch of fucking inspectors' and that he was not remorseful for what he did, said state meat inspector Earl Willis. Alexander said he was 'glad that he did it, thrilled that he did it' and that the meat industry 'was going to back him,' said Willis... The self-proclaimed 'sausage king' also said 'he'd be out in a couple years, and Hollywood would make a movie about him,' said Willis."

She testified that he told her if he ground up the inspectors and made sausages out of them, 'no one would know'... (Alexander) told her only two weeks before the inspectors were killed that he could get away with killing somebody because all he would have to do was call famous defense attorney Johnny Cochran, who represented O.J. Simpson, and plead insanity. In addition, Knapp said that one time when they were alone at the sausage factory, Alexander told her, 'I could do away with you and nobody would know.'"

[South Florida Sun-Sentinel 11.06.04]
The head of Florida's elections division resigned Monday amid reports he was feeling political heat over a push to purge thousands of suspected felons from the state's voter rolls. Ed Kast, who has worked for the state elections division for more than a decade, said only that he was resigning to 'pursue other opportunities.' But Kast has told a handful of associates that he was uncomfortable with growing pressure to trim felons from voter rolls in time for the fall election, friends say... 'Ed had made a number of comments that the nature and timing of this felons list was not something he was responsible for. I think he felt in good conscience he could no longer be involved in the operations.' ... In the 2000 election, which President Bush won after taking Florida by 537 votes over Al Gore, there were accusations that thousands were wrongly disenfranchised when the state purged the voter roles of suspected felons."
