UCLA Police Taser Student For Not Showing ID
This is like something out of a horror movie, you can hear the guy screaming and begging not to be tortured as they repeatedly hit him with the Taser shot.
Tortured for not showing ID in America, this is what 'serve and protect' has come to mean.
The UCLA student was hit with the Taser shocks multiple times while he was in the Powell Library Computer Lab.
The six-minute video shows Mostafa Tabatabainejad audibly screaming in pain as he is stunned several times with a Taser, each time for three to five seconds.
He is told repeatedly to stand up and stop fighting, and is told that if he does not do so he will "get Tased again."
Mostafa is also stunned with the Taser when he is already handcuffed, says Carlos Zaragoza, a third-year English and history student who witnessed the incident.   "No possible danger to any of the police — getting shocked and Tasered as he is handcuffed."
As Tabatabainejad is being dragged through the room by the two officers, he repeats in a strained scream, "I'm not fighting you.   I said I would leave."
The officers used the 'drive stun' setting in the Taser.   Tasers deliver volts of low-amperage energy to the body, causing a disruption of the body's electrical energy pulses and locking the muscles.
The Lancet Medical Journal in 2001 states a charge of three to five seconds can result in immobilization for five to 15 minutes.   Mostafa would have been physically unable to stand when the officers demanded that he do so.
"It is a real mistake to treat a Taser as some benign thing that painlessly brings people under control.   The Taser can be incredibly violent and result in death" — Peter Eliasberg, managing attorney at the ACLU of Southern California.
Mostafa Tabatabainejad was walking with his backpack toward the door when he was approached by two UCPD officers, one of whom grabbed the student's arm.
In response, Mostafa yelled at the officers to "get off me."   Following this demand, Tabatabainejad was stunned with the Taser.
The incident of police violence left many students disturbed.
UCLA administration said that the police were doing nothing wrong.   In so many words they were accepting that to Taser a student for forgetting his BruinCard was quite appropriate, if he or she responds as Mostafa did.
Well UCLA student? ? ?   You're paying for these people.
Is this the kind of University you want to attend?
Is the Taser [torturing] of a fellow student acceptable to you?
Is this the kind of world in which you wish to live?
Well UCLA faculty? ? ?   Is this an environment where you want to teach?
Is the Taser [torturing] of a student acceptable to you?
Is this the kind of world you have grown to admire?
Me?   Oh! I only have disgust.

They've already shocked him once.   By the time they've shocked him once they get the camera on.
Thirty seconds more they shock him again...and...and between the last ones it's more like fifteen seconds.
Did you hear the guy screaming, and then immediately they say stand up, stand up.
Fifteen seconds later [screaming] and you hear the people around him yell at the cops.
'He can't get up.   He can't get up.   Look at him.'
The guy is on the ground flopping around and...and...and...yeh...yeh...ahhhhh...ahhhhh...ahhhhhhhhhh.
The cops... they're they're...the guy can't get up...
It's just like some movie with the psychopath going...now it's okay...now I'm going to start cutting you.
This is what torture is.
I've seen so many [other videos] where you see the cops up close while they're Tasering and they'll start like setting their jaws, the creamy eye in their look...mmmmmmmm...eeeeehhhhhhhh...baring their teeth.   It's fun...it's fun...oh! look he [she] can't get up...I'll say get up because that will cover me [Taser — person being shocked again] mmmmmmm...mmmmmm... and then he [or she] waits fifteen seconds...I told you get up...just get up...mmmmmm [Taser — person being shocked again]    Ahhh!!   ahhhh!!!    [More screams from the person on the ground]
And it goes on and on and on and finally — it was no more fun because he [or she] totally passed out.
But don't worry CIA torture is more scientific.
They give people adrenaline to wake them back up.
Just think — all the TV shows promote torture and stuff maybe cops can.....
For people's own gooddddddddd.
To maintain order....
Comment by Kewe:
But even more disgusting, if that can be, are the UCLA Administrators who okay this barbaric practice.
And the students and faculty who sit by and let it happen.
Both the Administrators and Police Administrators should be arrested, tried and imprisoned — and the key thrown away.

No Wonder He Didn't Condemn Torture During His 2004 Campaign
Why Did Senator John Kerry Stand Idly By?
N aïve Americans who think they live in a free society should watch the video filmed by students at a John Kerry speech September 17, Constitution Day, at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
At the conclusion of Kerry's speech, Andrew Meyer, a 21-year old journalism student was selected by Senator Kerry to ask a question.
Meyer held up a copy of BBC investigative reporter Greg Palast's book, Armed Madhouse, and asked if Kerry was aware that Palast's investigations determined that Kerry had actually won the election.
Why, Meyer asked, had Kerry conceded the election so quickly when there were so many obvious examples of vote fraud?
Why, Meyer, went on to ask, was Kerry refusing to consider Bush's impeachment when Bush was about to initiate another act of military aggression, this time against Iran?
At this point the public's protectors-the police-decided that Meyer had said too much.
They grabbed Meyer and began dragging him off.
Meyer said repeatedly, "I have done nothing wrong," which under our laws he had not.
He threatened no one and assaulted no one.
But the police decided that Meyer, an American citizen, had no right to free speech and no constitutional protection.
They threw him to the floor and tasered him right in front of Senator Kerry and the large student audience, who captured on video the unquestionable act of police brutality.
Meyer was carted off and jailed on a phony charge of "disrupting a public event."
Why did Kerry just stand there while the student was being tortured ?
The question we should all ask is why did a United States Senator just stand there while Gestapo goons violated the constitutional rights of a student participating in a public event, brutalized him in full view of everyone, and then took him off to jail on phony charges?
Kerry's meekness not only in the face of electoral fraud, not only in the face of Bush's wars that are crimes under the Nuremberg standard, but also in the face of police goons trampling the constitutional rights of American citizens makes it completely clear that he was not fit to be president, and he is not fit to be a US senator.
Usually when police violate constitutional rights and commit acts of police brutality they do it when they believe no one is watching, not in front of a large audience.
Clearly, the police have become more audacious in their abuse of rights and citizens.
What explains the new fearlessness of police to violate rights and brutalize citizens without cause?
The answer is that police, most of whom have authoritarian personalities, have seen that constitutional rights are no longer protected.
President Bush does not protect our constitutional rights.
Neither does Vice President Cheney, nor the Attorney General, nor the US Congress.
Just as Kerry allowed Meyer's rights to be tasered out of him, Congress has enabled Bush to strip people, including American citizens, of constitutional protection and incarcerate them without presenting evidence.
How long before Kerry himself or some other senator will be dragged from his podium and tasered?
How long before Kerry himself or some other senator will be dragged from his podium and tasered?
The Bush Republicans with complicit Democrats have essentially brought government accountability to an end in the US.
The US government has 80,000 people, including ordinary American citizens, on its "no-fly list."
No one knows why they are on the list, and no one on the list can find out how to get off it.
An unaccountable act by the Bush administration put them there.
Airport Security harasses and abuses people who do not fit any known definition of terrorist.
Nalini Ghuman, a British-born citizen and music professor at Mills College in California was met on her return from a trip to England by armed guards at the airplane door and escorted away.
A Gestapo goon squad tore up her US visa, defaced her British passport, body searched her, and told her she could leave immediately for England or be sent to a detention center.
Professor Ghuman, an Oxford University graduate with a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley, says she feels like the character in Kafka's book, The Trial.
"I don't know why it's happened, what I'm accused of. There's no opportunity to defend myself. One is just completely powerless."
Over one year later there is still no answer.
The Bush Republicans and their Democratic toadies have, in the name of "security," made all of us powerless.
While Senator John Kerry and his Democratic colleagues stand silently, the Bush administration has stolen our country from us and turned us into subjects.

Andrew Meyer: 9/11 Truther
Red Dirt Report
Wednesday September 19, 2007
The most famous man on the Internet this week, University of Florida student Andrew Meyer, is, according to a friend speaking on "The Alex Jones Show," a 9/11 truther.
He's more than that, he's an honest-to-goodness truthseeker who is unafraid to speak truth to power, as the tired old bumper sticker says.
Anyway, the friend said Meyer, who was Tasered by campus police while questioning US Sen. John Kerry, was trying to ask Kerry if he was a member of the Yale secret society Skull & Bones, wants to be a journalist and wants to know the truth.
But when Meyer had the gall to be direct and to demand his right to ask some questions regarding the rigged '04 election, the cops act like bulls in front of a matador waving a red cape.
This incident is a total outrage! Meyer did nothing illegal.
He was assaulted by the police and sent to jail for daring to confront a sitting U.S. senator.
It's totally unbelievable.
Sure, he may be a prankster, but according to Meyer's website,
www.theandrewmeyer.com , he is a bold individual with a sense of humor and a love of pop culture.
He's also an informed young man and any and all charges should be dropped.
In the meantime, it's time to ban Tasers at the University of Florida, particularly when you have cops with gangland tattoos attacking students for using their first amendment rights.
Those cops should be fired for infringing on Meyer's right to speak.
Time to end this "like sheep to slaughter" mentality
It's time to end this "like sheep to slaughter" mentality that is so rife here in America.
It's time to stand up to corrupt "authority figures" who think they can wield their power over us and use torture devices to make us comply.
Ed and Elaine Brown Hold National Press Conference
New Hampshire Couple Vows to Fight Feds to the Death
Randy Weaver: "I'd rather die on my feet right here than die on my knees under this de facto government"
ABC June 18, 2007
Calling the federal agents surrounding his fortified compound "guns for hire," a New Hampshire man convicted of tax evasion vowed today that he and his wife would fight U.S. marshals to the death if they tried to capture them.
"Do not under any circumstances make any attempt on this land. We will not accept any tomfoolery by any criminal element, be it federal, state or local," said Ed Brown in a press conference from the stoop of his concrete-clad home in Plainfield, N.H. "We either walk out of here free or we die."
Brown and his wife, Elaine, were sentenced in absentia in April to serve 63 months in prison for failing to pay more than $1 million in income tax.
The couple, however, insists that there is no law that requires citizens to pay income tax.
"There is no law. We looked and looked," Brown told the press.
Brown and his supporters, including Randy Weaver, leader of the 1992 standoff with ATF agents at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, told the press that the government has unlawfully tricked people into believing they have to pay income tax, knowing full well that such a law would be unconstitutional.
"We will defend it to the death. This is 1776 all over again. You cannot tax someone's labor because that is slavery," Brown said.
Carrying a pistol in his waistband, Brown also insisted that he could not receive a fair trial in a federal court because "the court system falls under freemasonry."
"There [are] no longer any lawful courts. The Freemasons have taken over our nation. … [Freemasons want] to take over our nation and all nations on the planet," Brown said.
Weaver, whose son was killed by federal agents and who later received a $100,000 settlement from the government, said he was there to support the Browns.
"I'd rather die on my feet right here than die on my knees under this de facto government," he said. "Bring it on."
Despite months of surveillance and reports of agents hiding in the woods of the couple's 110-acre compound, U.S. marshals said this morning that the Brown's Plainfield, N.H., home was not surrounded by their officers.
U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier made an effort to starkly contrast the actions of the Marshals with those of the ATF agents who besieged Ruby Ridge in 1992. In addition to Weaver's son, one federal agent was killed in that incident.
"There is no standoff and the house is not surrounded." Monier told ABC News.com. "We have no intention of assaulting the house or engaging in a violent confrontation."
Monier said he believed Weaver would attend the press conference the Browns are hosting this afternoon. He said Weaver and others -- some of whom are believed to have brought the couple weapons -- have been freely allowed to enter Brown's property.
"There is no reason to block Weaver. People are free to exercise their First Amendment rights," Monier said. "We are not setting up roadblocks or surrounding the house."
In April, Ed and Elaine Brown were sentenced in absentia to 63 months in prison for failing to pay more than $1 million in taxes.
Since failing to appear in court the couple has remained within the concrete-fortified walls of their rural New Hampshire home.
Monier said the Marshals have been communicating with the couple in an effort to get them to turn themselves over the federal authorities without having to resort to the use of force.
"We know they have weapons and we do not want to see this escalate," he said.
Last week agents cut off the home's telephone, Internet and power access.
Monier said the couple most likely had generators -- possibly solar or wind powered -- but that eventually the Browns would become uncomfortable enough in their isolation that they would be forced to surrender.
"They probably have generators but those will soon need fuel and need people to fix them. We want to continue to encourage them, and make it uncomfortable enough for them that they'll give up."
Brown said he and his wife had enough supplies to wait out the government no matter how long it lasted. He said the couple did not use air conditioning and could chop down trees from firewood.
Last week, Danny Riley a friend of the Browns was arrested near their home by federal agents while walking the couple's dog.
The Marshals claim they were engaged in routine surveillance of the property, but the Browns believe Riley thwarted a potential raid.

The Browns situation has today been covered in the national press by CBS and AP, who have again described the Brown home as a "fortified concrete compound".
Does the Brown home
look like a fortified compound to you?
They also describe the Browns as "holed up" despite the fact that their home has no security gates or fences of any kind and is completely open to anyone who wishes to just walk in at any time.
U.S. Marshal Steve Monier acknowledged Wednesday that waiting out the Browns could take months, but he said time was on authorities' side.
He said he hoped prison would seem like an agreeable option for the Browns after a summer without air conditioning and possibly a winter without heat, the report states.
"We have seized their phone and Internet service, and two days ago, we cut their power," Monier said.
"It's a continuing effort to move them along to understand they need to do the right thing, and this is to surrender to us."
Monier has said there are no federal agents in Plainfield or surveillance teams in camouflage watching the fortified home at 401 Center of Town Road, despite it being proved that agents were lurking in the trees when they were discovered by dog walker Danny Riley who states that he was shot at and tasered and now describes himself as a "nervous wreck".
Riley says that he is still being threatened for revealing that the FBI are involved in the case.
The report as well as
another Union Leader piece state that the US marshals office was swamped with callers last week expressing support for the Browns after "a website" (i.e. Prisonplanet.com) urged readers to make a stand.

Threatened with death threats if they proceed, Luke Radowski and fellow 9/11 truth activists demand answers on collapse of towers
Giuliani, how do you sleep at night?
Steve Watson
Wednesday, February 21, 2007
An intrepid group of Infowars reporters confronted Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani at a fundraiser he was attending in New York today to demand answers to unanswered questions surrounding the collapse of the three World Trade Center buildings on 9/11.
One activist, the relative of a firefighter killed in the collapses, asked the former NYC mayor, for an explanation as why no steel framed building in history has ever collapsed from fire damage except for on 9/11 and why people in the buildings including rescuers were not given warnings they were going to collapse when he was.
She then asked Giuliani "How do you sleep at night?"
Watch the video here
Previously Giuliani has previously admitted in interviews that he was given prior warning that the twin towers were going to collapse, something no one could possibly have known was going to happen. Yet firefighters and police were not given the same warnings.

Alleged riot leader calls for charges against police officer
Thursday, 2 November 2006
By Dave Donaghy
TOWNSVILLE, November 16, 2006: The accused Palm Island riot ringleader has called for charges to be laid against the police officer responsible for the watchhouse death of an Indigenous man.
Lex Wotton said the North Queensland Island community needed to see justice brought against Senior Sergeant Chris Hurley, who has been stood down with full pay from his duties on the Gold Coast.
Acting state coroner Christine Clements found in September this year that Snr Sgt Hurley had landed the fatal blows that killed Mulrunji Doomadgee in 2004.
Wotton, whose trial on rioting charges begins in Brisbane on March 5, said the Island's reconciliation process could fail if the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP) elects not to press charges against Snr Sgt Hurley.
"So that when this man is in handcuffs and the DPP lays charges then the community will feel better," Mr Wotton said.
"The community needs to see a lot of justice. That's not just Palm but all Indigenous communities across Australia."
Wotton said the drawn-out ordeal had "strengthened" him and the Palm Island community.
Mulrunji died on November 19, 2004 with an autopsy into his death finding the 36-year-old died from a ruptured liver and portal vein.
The results triggered riots on Palm Island.
Since the coroner released her findings, Snr Sgt Hurley has received overwhelming support from the Queensland Police Union, with the organisation's president, Gary Wilkinson, labelling the report a "witch hunt".
Mr Wotton, who still lives on Palm Island, was in Sydney yesterday to address the launch of the Errol Wyles Justice Foundation.
The foundation was named after Errol Wyles, a 15-year-old Indigenous youth, who was run over and killed in 2003, shortly after being denied entry to a party in Townsville.
The 20-year-old white man who was driving the car that struck Errol received a four-year sentence with a minimum non-parole period of 15 months.
Board member Stewart Levitt, who also represents Wotton, said the foundation was established to pursue justice for Indigenous Australians, particularly for those in north Queensland.
Mr Levitt said the acting state coroner's findings into Mulrunji's death gave weight to Mr Wotton's defence after the trial was sensationally moved from Townsville to Brisbane.
Mr Wotton claimed he could not receive a fair trial in the North Queensland centre. - AAP

When All Else Fails...
... Execute the dictator.   It’s that simple.   When American troops are being killed by the dozen, when the country you are occupying is threatening to break up into smaller countries, when you have militias and death squads roaming the streets and you’ve put a group of Mullahs in power — execute the dictator.
Everyone expected this verdict from the very first day of the trial.   There was a brief interlude when, with the first judge, it was thought that it might actually be a coherent trial where Iraqis could hear explanations and see what happened.   That was soon over with the prosecution’s first false witness.   Events that followed were so ridiculous; it’s difficult to believe them even now.
The sound would suddenly disappear when the defense or one of the defendants got up to speak.   We would hear the witnesses but no one could see them — hidden behind a curtain, their voices were changed.   People who were supposed to have been dead in the Dujail incident were found to be very alive.
Judge after judge was brought in because the ones in court were seen as too fair.   They didn’t instantly condemn the defendants (even if only for the sake of the media).   The piece de resistance was the final judge they brought in.
His reputation vies only that of Chalabi — a well-known thief and murderer who ran away to Iran to escape not political condemnation, but his father’s wrath after he stole from the restaurant his father ran.
So we all knew the outcome upfront (Maliki was on television 24 hours before the verdict telling people not to ‘rejoice too much’).   I think what surprises me right now is the utter stupidity of the current Iraqi government.   The timing is ridiculous — immediately before the congressional elections?   How very convenient for Bush.   Iraq, today, is at its very worst since the invasion and the beginning occupation.   April 2003 is looking like a honeymoon month today.   Is it really the time to execute Saddam?
I’m more than a little worried.   This is Bush’s final card.   The elections came and went and a group of extremists and thieves were put into power (no, no — I meant in Baghdad, not Washington).   The constitution which seems to have drowned in the river of Iraqi blood since its elections has been forgotten.   It is only dug up when one of the Puppets wants to break apart the country.   Reconstruction is an aspiration from another lifetime: I swear we no longer want buildings and bridges, security and an undivided Iraq are more than enough.   Things must be deteriorating beyond imagination if Bush needs to use the ‘Execute the Dictator’ card.
Iraq has not been this bad in decades.   The occupation is a failure.   The various pro-American, pro-Iranian Iraqi governments are failures.   The new Iraqi army is a deadly joke.   Is it really time to turn Saddam into a martyr?
Things are so bad that even pro-occupation Iraqis are going back on their initial ‘WE LOVE AMERICA’ frenzy.   Laith Kubba (a.k.a. Mr. Catfish for his big mouth and constant look of stupidity) was recently on the BBC saying that this was just the beginning of justice, that people responsible for the taking of lives today should also be brought to justice.   He seems to have forgotten he was one of the supporters of the war and occupation, and an important member of one of the murderous pro-American governments.   But history shall not forget Mr. Kubba.
Iraq saw demonstrations against and for the verdict.   The pro-Saddam demonstrators were attacked by the Iraqi army.   This is how free our media is today: the channels that were showing the pro-Saddam demonstrations have been shut down.   Iraqi security forces promptly raided them.   Welcome to the new Iraq.   Here are some images from the Salahiddin and Zawra channels:

Iraq Orders Closure of TV Station Office
Occupied Baghdad (AP) — The Iraqi government Monday ordered the closure of the Baghdad office of a Dubai-based television station whose newscaster wore black mourning clothes while reporting on the hanging of Hussein.
A spokesman for the Interior Ministry said the Al-Sharqiya station, owned by a former chief of radio and television for Saddam, had incited violence and hatred in its coverage and had ignored warnings to stop.
Brigadier Abdul-Karim Khalaf, the spokesman, said the order was issued after an allegedly false report by the news channel about the abduction of three Sunni Arab female students from a university.
But the order also followed criticism of the tone of Al-Sharqiya's coverage of Saturday's execution, which struck some as sympathetic to the ousted dictator.
In contrast to state-run television reports that described Saddam as a "tyrant" and "criminal," a newscaster on Al-Sharqiya — which means "The Eastern One" — referred to him Sunday as "president."
Iraq's government is dominated by the country's Shiite Muslim majority.   Al-Sharqiya is sometimes mocked by critics as "Al-Baathiya" for its alleged sympathies for Saddam's outlawed Baath Party, which had helped Iraq's Sunni minority rule the country.
Shiite and Sunni are now locked in a sectarian war that has claimed thousands of lives.
It's not clear how the closure might effect Al-Sharqiya, which broadcasts to Iraq from Dubai by satellite.
Al-Sharqiya reported Monday night that its offices in Baghdad were raided and sealed by Iraqi authorities.   But the station said those offices were vacated three months ago in response to attacks on staff.
Al-Sharqiya remained on the air Monday, broadcasting video of a protest against Saddam's execution that was staged by the Professional Associations — an umbrella group of unions representing doctors, engineers and lawyers — at the group's offices in Amman, Jordan.
Saddam's eldest daughter, Raghad, briefly attended the demonstration in her first public appearance since his execution.
State-run Al-Iraqiya may have referred to the controversy over Al-Sharqiya's coverage, when it criticized reporting on Saddam's death by rival Iraqi and regional Arab television stations.
"The execution of Saddam unveiled the many masks of those who don't like to see a strong, civilized and developed Iraq," an Al-Iraqiya newscaster said Monday.   "The male and female news readers of some Arab and Iraqi satellite channels rushed to their cupboards to wear their black clothes, announcing their sorrow about the joy of Iraqis."
Newscasters on the influential Al-Jazeera satellite channel also wore black in the aftermath of Saddam's hanging.
The government did not specifically cite the controversy over Al-Sharqiya's coverage of Saddam's execution in explaining the closure.
"We had sent many warnings to the channel previously, but it insisted on circulating false news that provoked violence and hatred," said Khalaf, the interior ministry spokesman.
On Nov. 30, the Interior Ministry said it had formed a special unit to monitor news coverage and vowed to take legal action against journalists who failed to correct stories the ministry deemed to be incorrect.   The ministry runs the Iraqi national police and a separate paramilitary force.
The purpose of the monitoring unit, Khalaf said at the time, was to find "fabricated and false news that hurts and gives the Iraqis a wrong picture that the security situation is very bad, when the facts are totally different."
Al-Sharqiya's programming includes a number of Iraqi soap operas.   Its owner, Saad al-Bazzaz, fled Iraq years before Saddam's fall and returned after the regime collapsed.
Prominent employees of Al-Sharqiya have fallen victim to Iraq's violence.   Those slain include correspondent Ahmed al-Rasheed, and Walid Hassan, a famous comedian who was shot while driving in western Baghdad.
Hassan had performed in a comedy series called "Caricature," which mocked coalition forces and Iraqi governments since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
AP reporter Saad Abdul Kadir contributed to this report.

Insurgent TV channel turns into Iraq's newest cult hit
Michael Howard in Baghdad
Monday January 15, 2007

The Guardian
An American soldier slumps in the turret of his tank, felled by the infamous Baghdad sniper.   A Humvee is vapourised by a roadside bomb.   Rockets launch from a pick-up truck to shouts of "Allah u Akhbar [God is great]".
Back in the studio a TV anchorman, dressed in fatigues, urges viewers to rise up and fight the invaders.   "We will not surrender.   Either death or victory," he vows, while warning US forces and their "Iranian" friends in Iraq's government that they face a shameful defeat.
This is al-Zawraa TV, a 24-hour satellite station that lionises Iraq's insurgency to the drumbeat of Saddam-era martial music.   It is a crude and dizzying mix of images and videos harvested from jihadi websites — and a cult hit.   There are grainy loops of car bombs and mortar attacks interspersed with images of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib and bloodied children.   "Mujahideen" are seen training.   Clips of Michael Moore's film, Fahrenheit 9/11 are thrown in for good measure.
Its chief targets are the US-led forces and "collaborators".   But it reserves some of its strongest venom for the Safawis, a derogatory term used by Sunni Arabs to describe Iraq's resurgent Shia political and religious establishment.   The name harks back to the Persian Safavid empire which ran amok in Baghdad in the 16th century.
The radical Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and his Mahdi militia, thought to be behind many of today's anti-Sunni attacks, are excoriated as "murderous gangsters", while the Shia-led government is labelled as Iranian stooges.   "We are not against the Shia, we are against the Safawis," the station proclaims.
Al-Zawraa started life as a mostly song-and-dance channel, but following the closure of its Baghdad offices by the Iraqi government in November for "inciting violence" it made an abrupt change of tone.
Iraqi officials say al-Zawraa is a mouthpiece for the Islamic Army in Iraq, a Baathist-dominated insurgent group.   It is transmitted from an unknown location into the Middle East and north Africa by the Egyptian-owned Nilesat network.
The station is owned by Mishan al-Jibouri, a member of Iraq's national assembly who had his parliamentary immunity stripped earlier this year following allegations of embezzlement.   US officials in Iraq say he is in hiding in Syria.
Al-Zawraa has proved a hit with disaffected youth in Baghdad.   "I watch this channel every night," said Samir Aziz, 22.   "I don't like encouraging violence, but it is something unusual in the argument against the Americans.   I am hooked."

It’s not about the man — presidents come and go, governments come and go.   It’s the frustration of feeling like the whole country and every single Iraqi inside and outside of Iraq is at the mercy of American politics.   It is the rage of feeling like a mere chess piece to be moved back and forth at will.
It is the aggravation of having a government so blind and uncaring about their peoples needs that they don’t even feel like it’s necessary to go through the motions or put up an act.   And it's the deaths.   The thousands of dead and dying, with Bush sitting there smirking and lying about progress and winning in a country where every single Iraqi outside of the Green Zone is losing.
Once again… The timing of all of this is impeccable — two days before congressional elections.   And if you don’t see it, then I’m sorry, you’re stupid.   Let’s see how many times Bush milks this as a ‘success’ in his coming speeches.
A final note.   I just read somewhere that some of the families of dead American soldiers are visiting the Iraqi north to see ‘what their sons and daughters died for’.
If that’s the goal of the visit, then, “Ladies and gentlemen — to your right is the Iraqi Ministry of Oil, to your left is the Dawry refinery...
Each of you get this, a gift bag containing a 3 by 3 color poster of Al Sayid Muqtada Al Sadr (Long May He Live And Prosper), an Ayatollah Sistani t-shirt and a map of Iran, to scale, redrawn with the Islamic Republic of South Iraq.   Also... Hey you!   You — the female in the back — is that a lock of hair I see?   Cover it up or stay home.”
And that is what they died for.
Baghdad is under siege
By Patrick Cockburn in Arbil, Northern Iraq
Published: 01 November 2006

Sunni insurgents have cut the roads linking the city to the rest of Iraq.   The country is being partitioned as militiamen fight bloody battles for control of towns and villages north and south of the capital.
As American and British political leaders argue over responsibility for the crisis in Iraq, the country has taken another lurch towards disintegration.
Well-armed Sunni tribes now largely surround Baghdad and are fighting Shia militias to complete the encirclement.
The Sunni insurgents seem to be following a plan to control all the approaches to Baghdad.   They have long held the highway leading west to the Jordanian border and east into Diyala province.   Now they seem to be systematically taking over routes leading north and south.
Dusty truck-stop and market towns such as Mahmoudiyah, Balad and Baquba all lie on important roads out of Baghdad.   In each case Sunni fighters are driving out the Shia and tightening their grip on the capital.   Shias may be in a strong position within Baghdad but they risk their lives when they take to the roads.   Some 30 Shias were dragged off a bus yesterday after being stopped at a fake checkpoint south of Balad.
In some isolated neighbourhoods in Baghdad, food shortages are becoming severe.   Shops are open for only a few hours a day.   "People have been living off water melon and bread for the past few weeks," said one Iraqi from the capital.   The city itself has broken up into a dozen or more hostile districts, the majority of which are controlled by the main Shia militia, the Mehdi Army.
The scale of killing is already as bad as Bosnia at the height of the Balkans conflict.   An apocalyptic scenario could well emerge - with slaughter on a massive scale.   As America prepares its exit strategy, the fear in Iraq is of a genocidal conflict between the Sunni minority and the Shias in which an entire society implodes.   Individual atrocities often obscure the bigger picture where:
* upwards of 1,000 Iraqis are dying violently every week;
* Shia fighters have taken over much of Baghdad; the Sunni encircle the capital;
* the Iraqi Red Crescent says 1.5 million people have fled their homes within the country;
* the Shia and Sunni militias control Iraq, not the enfeebled army or police.
No target is too innocent.   Yesterday a bomb tore through a party of wedding guests in Ur, on the outskirts of Sadr City, killing 15 people, including four children.   Iraqi wedding parties are very identifiable, with coloured streamers attached to the cars and cheering relatives hanging out the windows.
Amid all this, Dick Cheney, the US Vice-President, has sought to turn the fiasco of Iraq into a vote-winner with his claim that the Iraqi insurgents have upped their attacks on US forces in a bid to influence the mid-term elections. There is little evidence to support this.   In fact, the number of American dead has risen steadily this year from 353 in January to 847 in September and will be close to one thousand in October.
And there is growing confusion over the role of the US military.   In Sadr City, the sprawling slum in the east of the capital that is home to 2.5 million people, American soldiers have been setting up barriers of cement blocks and sandbags after a US soldier was abducted, supposedly by the Mehdi Army.
The US also closed several of the bridges across the Tigris river making it almost impossible to move between east and west Baghdad.   Nouri al-Maliki, the Iraqi Prime Minister, added to the sense of chaos yesterday when he ordered the US army to end its Sadr City siege.
Mr Maliki has recently criticised the US for the failure of its security policy in Iraq and resisted American pressure to eliminate the militias.
Although President Bush and Tony Blair publicly handed back sovereignty to Iraq in June 2004, Mr Maliki said: "I am now Prime Minister and overall commander of the armed forces yet I cannot move a single company without Coalition [US and British] approval."
In reality the militias are growing stronger by the day because the Shia and Sunni communities feel threatened and do not trust the army and police to defend them.   US forces have been moving against the Mehdi Army, which follows the nationalist cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, but he is an essential prop to Mr Maliki's government.   Almost all the main players in Iraqi politics maintain their own militias.
The impotence of US forces to prevent civil war is underlined by the fact that the intense fighting between Sunni and Shia around Balad, north of Baghdad, has raged for a month, although the town is beside one of Iraq's largest American bases.   The US forces have done little and when they do act they are seen by the Shia as pursuing a feud against the Mehdi Army.
One eyewitness in Balad said two US gunships had attacked Shia positions on Sunday killing 11 people and seriously wounding six more, several of whom lost legs and arms.   He added that later two Iraqi regular army platoons turned up in Balad with little military equipment.
When they were asked by locals why their arms were so poor "the reply was that they were under strict orders by the US commander from the [nearby] Taji camp not to intervene and they were stripped of their rocket-propelled grenade launchers".
Another ominous development is that Iraqi tribes that often used to have both Sunni and Shia members are now splitting along sectarian lines.
In Baghdad it has become lethally dangerous for a Sunni to wander into a Shia neighbourhood and vice versa.
In one middle-class district called al-Khudat, in west Baghdad, once favoured by lawyers and judges, the remaining Shia families recently found a cross in red paint on their doors.   Sometimes there is also a note saying "leave without furniture and without renting your house".   Few disobey.

— The United states had drawn up a battle plan for the potential use of nuclear weapons in Iraq.
— The United States has been involved in planning potential nuclear use scenarios for Iran.
The United States is now involved in a massive program to overhaul its nuclear arsenal.
They are working to replace every nuclear warhead —
And all of the existing delivery systems in the arsenal —
To ensure prompt precision global strike capabilities —
So the world might experience another Hiroshima.

Resist, persist, and you don't even have to sign.

What is resistance ?
Resistance is not only about taking up arms.  Bless those who have the guts to do so.  Pray for them.  They are the pure from amongst us.
Putting their lives on the front line, risking it all, losing it all sometimes. Yes bless them because only a few have what it takes.
But there are also other forms of resistance.
And trust me you don't need to sign your name either.  It is all recorded, your name, address and date of birth.  All you need to do is join us.
Join us in spirit, join us in soul, join us with your words, with your letters, with your cries, with your exclamations, with your tears, with your sighs ...
It does not matter, just join us.  You give us strength even if you don't know it.  It is all recorded.  It is recorded in Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, Lebanon.  We forget no one.  We are the spears and the arrows and you are the archers.

October 23, 2006 
Iraqis and Americans must ask the U.S. government for a full and open explanation of what happened at Camp Falcon, Baghdad, on the 10th of October 2006.
Index Research has had the following report from an Iraqi concerning the explosions at As Saqr / Camp Falcon:
"The resistance attacked Camp Falcon south of Baghdad. This camp is considered as the most important munition camp. The explosions in the camp continued for three hours and was transmitted in direct on Al Jazeera. The resistance filmed the explosions and diffused them on the internet.
Iraq for ever of Fadhil Badrani translated the information on US Pentagon site which says that there were 5000 soldiers in this camp. But the Pentagon the same night declared that there were only 100 soldiers. This was evident is to hide the losses.
The resistance in Falluja and Habaniyah that there were 9 gros porteurs planes landed in Habaniyah the same night where there is a US military hospital.
Iraqis says that the attack costed US 1 million dollars, many hundred deaths and the conviction that controlling Baghdad plan is but a mirage."
Iraqi Resistance rockets blast into biggest American arsenal in Iraq setting off unprecedented explosions, illuminating Baghdad sky just before midnight Tuesday.
Iraqi Resistance Report for events of Tuesday, 10 October 2006 — www.iraq-war.ru
In a dispatch posted at 12:30am Makkah time Wednesday morning, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that a short while earlier Iraqi Resistance forces had attacked and blown up the largest US weapons arsenal depot in the American General Headquarters in the south of Baghdad.   The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the arsenal, located in the as-Saqr Base in the south of Baghdad is the main supplier of equipment to the US forces.   It came under Resistance rocket attack late on Tuesday night.
At the time of reporting, mountains of American arms and ammunition were continuing to explode in the sky in a huge fire unprecedented in Baghdad’s history.   In response, US aircraft hysterically rocketed and bombed various parts of the city, the correspondent reported, trying to knock out the launch sites of the rockets that blasted into the American arsenal.   A source in the Iraqi puppet regime told Mafkarat al-Islam that the Resistance blasted the American arsenal, known as Camp Falcon, with Grad and Katyusha rockets.
The source admitted that dozens of Americans had been killed or wounded in the blasts that were still ripping the American arsenal apart.   The source said that the US forces were unable to do anything to stop the massive inferno of flame and explosions that was lighting up the Baghdad sky like fireworks.   Reuters reported the puppet regime’s “Iraqiyah” television network as showing pictures of a huge fire lighting up the night sky.   Reuters reporters in central Baghdad heard more than 30 explosions, which began at about 11pm local time Tuesday night.
The puppet “Iraqi Interior Ministry” said the explosions had rocked three neighborhoods close to Forward Operating Base Falcon in the southern Baghdad suburb of ad-Durah.

Resistance Growing Up at School
Inter Press Service, Ali Al-Fadhily and Dahr Jamail
KHALDIYA, Oct 12, 2006 (IPS) — The bomb went off just outside the school as the IPS correspondent stood speaking to children and teachers within.  
The headmaster smiled.   "You will hear many of these every day if you stay here another day or two," he said.   "The resistance will not stop until the last American leaves."
The children too took no notice of the blast, which shook the doors and windows of the half-destroyed school in this town near Fallujah, 70km west of Baghdad.
That US operation killed thousands
The children are growing up in occupied Iraq — and they are resisting it.
"Americans are bad," said 11-year-old Mustafa.   "They killed my family."   The family were killed in Operation Phantom Fury of November 2004 as they tried to flee the city, teachers said.   That operation killed thousands and destroyed much of Fallujah and towns around it.
"God will send all Americans to hellfire," cried another child in the classroom.   Attempts to suggest that not everyone they thought American was bad proved fruitless.
"How can we teach them forgiveness when they see Americans killing their family members every day," the teacher in the classroom who gave her name as Shyamaa told IPS.   "Words cannot cover the stream of blood and these signs of destruction, and words cannot hide the daily raids they see."
They seem determined to tear the world apart
For the headmaster, the idea of a clash of civilisations is not just an idea.
"The gap between civilisations is widening thanks to the U.S. administration's crimes against humanity all over the world," he said.   "They seem determined to tear the world apart, and their footprints cannot be removed for the coming generations."
Outside the school a group of women and some elderly men approached the IPS correspondent.   One of the men boasted that his son was a resistance fighter.   "I am proud that he is a hero fighting these Americans.   And they used to talk to us about our human rights."
Down the street everyone is jumpy.   People seemed to be watching out for unusual signs.   A driver told IPS that resistance fighters usually give residents some sort of coded warning before they let off a bomb."
Americans leave this province or face death
As the correspondent stood taking notes on a roadside before leaving Khaldiya, a young man on a bicycle shouted as he passed by: "The one and only solution for the Americans is to leave this province or face death."
The U.S. forces are now leaving some towns.   Cities like Dhuluiya, Talafar and Fallujah west of Baghdad have become virtually no-go areas for U.S. forces.   Attacks against the U.S.-led Multi-National Forces (MNF) continue to increase.
"They keep asking us to hand over resistance fighters to them," a farmer at a village in the area told IPS.   "So that they can torture them in Abu Ghraib, Falcon base, Baghdad airport and other detention centres."   But resistance fighters are gaining support, far from being handed over.
Resistance attacks often take the shape of a small car that appears from nowhere.   The men inside attack U.S. tanks or trucks carrying soldiers, and disappear fast.   Local people never provide U.S. forces with information where the men came from or where they went.
I can shoot as long as they want us to shoot — Schoomaker
Three to four U.S. soldiers are being killed every day on average in such attacks now.   The U.S. Department of Defence says at least 2,754 U.S. soldiers have been killed in Iraq, and more than 44,000 have been wounded or have fallen ill.
U.S. troops are vacating towns, but not the country.   Top U.S. military commander Gen. Peter Schoomaker said Wednesday the current level of U.S. troops, about 15 brigades, would be maintained at least through 2010.
"This is not a prediction that things are going poorly or better, it's just that I have to have enough ammo in the magazine that I can continue to shoot as long as they want us to shoot," he said.
Millimeters away.

So many dead today in my Beloved Baghdad.  I decided to light a candle for all those who went to the other side.  I placed the candle on my window panel.
The flame looked ever so peaceful, surrounded by plants and my bright white curtains.
For moments, everything looked perfect as it is.  For seconds, I accepted it all.
I snugged complacently into that corner of nano seconds of Peace.
I moved to another room, hoping that I had paid my dues to today's dead.
I smelt a funny odor.  Something is burning hard. I quickly rushed back only to see the candle burning at both ends consuming the wooden panels in fury.
For splits of seconds, I watched the fire rising up the window, burning bright, burning hot.
Purifying the dust around me, purifying the place like some incense on an altar.
In those splits of seconds, I saw the immolated bodies with kerosene in Baghdad, burnt alive.
Everything was moving so fast and the fire was reaching new heights.
I woke myself up from this trance.  I tried gathering whatever wits I had left and got hold of a bottle of water and threw it on the burning wood, only to see the flames rising even higher.
I had to save my altar.  Another bucket of water frantically thrown, fumes are choking me now.
And whilst I was trying to extinguish the fire, I was screaming:  "Oh God where are you now?"
Then I noticed in an instant that the distance separating the ever growing flames from the bright white curtains was only One millimeter.  That was the distance that saved me tonight.  One millimeter.
So if any of you ask where God is — look for Him, Her, It— in that One millimeter of your life that has been spared.
I extinguished the fire.  My white curtains have turned dark grey, I am choking with the smoke of burnt wood ...
My beloved Baghdad, how many more candles do you need?

The “Green Zone”: An American frigate, float on a sea of Iraqi blood
October 13th, 2006
Before the occupation, the US government held dozens of conferences and meetings with Iraqis who were ready to sell their homeland and their people for a Parliamentary seat or a Ministry.
The best-known is the London conference, which was attended by Iraqis who accepted in advance signing a document stating obedience to the US plans and contributed to the implementation and assisting the occupation forces.
In addition to mislead the public and distort its patriotic morals with the occupation demands, puppets are continuously trying to convince people that the occupation forces are “liberation forces”, and claim that our survival, security and safety depends on the existence of the foreign forces.   All of them marched behind the Americans, from the “Governmental Council” established by Bremer until today.
First Prime Minister Allawi, he was the one who ordered the occupation forces to destroy Fallujah, and the extermination of most of its population because they refused to bow their heads to the occupation.
Second Prime Minister Jaafari, he is the one who extended the occupation’s presence in Iraq, without consulting the deformed parliament.
As for Talabani, the so called “President of the Republic”, notably, his task is no more than touring America offering his obedience and thanks for the freedom and security; he went to all US institutions defending his master Bush before his oppositions — discharge the occupation forces from all their crimes against our people.
All those puppets accepted to live comfortably in the American frigate, which is floating on a sea of blood of Iraqis, workers, students and scholars.
All those puppets accepted to be run by an American “remote Control”, managed by the US ambassador in Iraq and thousands of American military experts and advisors; each had a role, starting from the Iraq government and doesn’t end with the “Death Squads”, sectarian militias or gangs — to prove that the Iraqi people are retarded people, can not live in peace without the protection of the American forces, and the American administration making every sacrifice in order to accomplish this historical task in this volatile region to set an example to the world, especially to the region.
Although occupation forces turn Iraq into a sea of blood and depriving the livings from life necessities, the Iraqi people have a long experience that leadership is ripen from the struggle.
The Iraqi parliament meeting, which approved the law to divide Iraq, was attended by the occupation sincere loyalists, employed by the Americans, to run the last US desperate trick to save Bush from this miserable situation — the latest trick up their sleeves is to divide Iraq.

But the principal, underlying cause was that, as early as the beginning of the twentieth century, human equality had become technically possible.
It was still true that men were not equal in their native talents and that functions had to be specialized in ways that favoured some individuals against others; but there was no longer any real need for class distinctions or for large differences of wealth.
In earlier ages, class distinctions had been not only inevitable but desirable.
Inequality was the price of civilization.
With the development of machine production, however, the case was altered.
Even if it was still necessary for human beings to do different kinds of work, it was no longer necessary for them to live at different social or economic levels.
Therefore, from the point of view of the new groups who were on the point of seizing power, human equality was no longer an ideal to be striven after, but a danger to be averted.
In more primitive ages, when a just and peaceful society was in fact not possible, it had been fairly easy to believe it.
The idea of an earthly paradise in which men should live together in a state of brotherhood, without laws and without brute labour, had haunted the human imagination for thousands of years.
And this vision had had a certain hold even on the groups who actually profited by each historical change.

The heirs of the French, English, and American revolutions had partly believed in their own phrases about the rights of man, freedom of speech, equality before the law, and the like, and have even allowed their conduct to be influenced by them to some extent.
But by the fourth decade of the twentieth century all the main currents of political thought were authoritarian.
The earthly paradise had been discredited at exactly the moment when it became realizable.
Every new political theory, by whatever name it called itself, led back to hierarchy and regimentation.
And in the general hardening of outlook that set in round about 1930, practices which had been long abandoned, in some cases for hundreds of years — imprisonment without trial, the use of war prisoners as slaves, public executions, torture to extract confessions, the use of hostages, and the deportation of whole populations — not only became common again, but were tolerated and even defended by people who considered themselves enlightened and progressive.

Embattled AG now accused in teen
sex scandal 'cover-up'
Attorney General Gonzales among officials who allegedly ignored abuse of minor boys
March 25, 2007
By Jerome R. Corsi
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, both already under siege for other matters, are now being accused of failing to prosecute officers of the Texas Youth Commission after a Texas Ranger investigation documented that guards and administrators were sexually abusing the institution's teenage boy inmates.
Among the charges in the Texas Ranger report were that administrators would rouse boys from their sleep for the purpose of conducting all-night sex parties.
Retained job despite pornography on state computers
Ray Brookins, one of the officials named in the report, was a Texas prison guard before being hired at the youth commission school.
As a prison guard, Brookins had a history of disciplinary and petty criminal records dating back 21 years.
He retained his job despite charges of using pornography on the job, including viewing nude photos of men and women on state computers.
Systematically abusing youth inmates
The Texas Youth Comission controversy traces back to a criminal investigation conducted in 2005 by Texas Ranger Brian Burzynski.
The investigation revealed key employees at the West Texas State School in Pyote, Texas, were systematically abusing youth inmates in their custody.
Burzynski presented his findings to the attorney general in Texas, to the U.S. Attorney Sutton, and to the Department of Justice civil rights division.
Received no interest in prosecuting — Karl Rove orchestrating role
From all three, Burzynski received no interest in prosecuting the alleged sexual offenses.
"This case demonstrates that a partisan political agenda, with Karl Rove in an orchestrating role, has penetrated the Justice Department and subverted fair-minded administration of the law," Matt Angle, director of the Lone Star Project, told WND.
It's just the latest controversy for Sutton, Gonzales and the Bush administration's direction of the Justice Department.
Earlier, Sutton's decisions to prosecute two Border Patrol agents and Deputy Sheriff Gil Hernandez were criticized as having been influenced by the intervention of the Mexican government.
Gonzales is under heavy congressional pressure in the controversy over the recent forced resignations of eight U.S. attorneys.
At issue is whether the Bush administration is directing the Justice Department to pursue politically motivated prosecutions at the expense of fair or even-handed law enforcement.
Would have to demonstrate boys subjected to sexual abuse
— felt physical pain
In the Texas Youth Commission scandal, Texas Ranger official Burzynski received a July 28, 2005, letter from Bill Baumann, assistant U.S. attorney in Sutton's office, declining prosecution on the argument that under 18 U.S.C. Section 242, the government would have to demonstrate that the boys subjected to sexual abuse sustained "bodily injury."
Baumann wrote that, "As you know, our interviews of the victims revealed that none sustained 'bodily injury.'"
Baumann's letter continued, adding a definition of the phrase "bodily injury," as follows: "Federal courts have interpreted this phrase to include physical pain.
None of the victims have claimed to have felt physical pain during the course of the sexual assaults which they described."
Must demonstrate perpetrator
— knowingly caused victim to engage in sexual act
Baumann's letter further suggested that insufficient evidence existed to prove the offenders in the Texas Youth Commission case had used force in their alleged acts of pedophilia:
"A felony charge under 18 U.S.C. Section 242 can also be predicated on the commission of 'aggravated sexual abuse' or the attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse.
The offense of aggravated sexual abuse is proven with evidence that the perpetrator knowingly caused his victim to engage in a sexual act (which can include contact between the mouth and penis) by using force against the victim or by threatening or placing the victim in fear that the victim (or any other person) will be subjected to death, serious bodily injury or kidnapping.
I do not believe that sufficient evidence exists to support a charge that either Brookins or Hernandez used force to cause victims to engage in a sexual act."
No action because young imprisoned boys
— even enjoyed the acts
Baumann's letter went so far as to suggest that the victims may have willingly participated in, or even enjoyed, the acts of pedophilia involved:
"As you know, consent is frequently an issue in sexual assault cases.
Although none of the victims admit that they consented to the sexual contact, none resisted or voiced any objection to the conduct.
Several of the victims suggested that they were simply 'getting off' on the school administrator."
Rejected charges administrators at the Texas Youth Commission
— lengthened sentences of boys 'reluctant to participate'
Baumann's letter also rejected Burzynski's charges that the administrators at the Texas Youth Commission facility in West Texas had used their position of authority to force the inmates to participate in the sexual acts or that the administrators had lengthened the sentences of the boys to retain willing participants or punish those reluctant to participate.
Essential to show the victim
— was in fact victimized
Baumann wrote:
"In order for the government to be successful in a criminal prosecution, it would be essential for us to show that the victim was in fact victimized.
Most of the victims were aware of the power that the school principal and assistant superintendent held over them, but none were able to describe retaliative acts committed by either the principal or assistant superintendent.
Although it is apparent that many students were retained at West Texas State School long after their initial release date, it would be difficult to prove that either Mr. Brookins or Mr. Hernandez prevented their release."
On Sept. 27, 2005, the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division declined prosecution in a letter written to Lemuel Harrison, the Texas Youth Commission superintendent at the West Texas State School.
In that letter, Justice Department section chief Albert Moskowitz wrote that "evidence does not establish a prosecutable violation of the federal criminal civil rights statutes."
When the word came from Washington
— that's when Baumann wrote letter declining prosecution
Angle maintains the decision not to prosecute was purely political.
"The U.S. attorney's office in Texas actually prepared indictments in this case," Angle told WND.
"But when the word came from Washington, that's when Baumann wrote his letter declining prosecution.
Sutton's office dropped the matter on the desk of the local district attorney, but nobody from Sutton's office said 'if you can’t go on this case, we'll help you out.'"
WND asked Angle to explain how politics drove the decisions not to prosecute.
Describe systematic and widespread abuse of juveniles
— yet they determine that the evidence is not sufficient to warrant federal prosecution
"If you read the letters from Sutton's office or from DOJ, it's really amazing what abuse they describe and then downplay as not being serious," Angle explained.
"They describe systematic and widespread abuse of juveniles who were held in these facilities by the people who were administering these facilities, and they acknowledge this fully, yet they determine that the evidence is not sufficient to warrant federal prosecution."
Angle explained to WND that he found both letters shocking.
"The letters justify not pursuing these cases because, number one, there is no evidence that any of these juveniles felt physical pain while they were being assaulted, and the letters use the word 'assaulted,'" he said.
"And then also, they rejected prosecution because none of these juveniles stated in the investigations that they resisted and objected, which of course the facts of the report show to be the case.
This case developed right in the middle of Governor Perry's 2006 re-election campaign.
While Texas is a Republican state, and the Republicans expected to win, still at that time, Governor Perry was facing an election challenge from Carole Strayhorn, a third party candidate who was also a former Republican comptroller in Texas."
He continued:
"I would speculate that the political powers in Texas and Washington in the Republican Party were not interested in this sex scandal coming to light. Sutton and Gonzales let their political responsibilities outstrip their legal responsibilities, and as a result you had children who were in danger of sexual abuse and were left in that danger."
Angle says that while the U.S. Justice Department and Texas attorney general's office were not prosecuting in this case, they were actively pursuing minor voter fraud issues with only a handful of allegations to go on.
On March 2, 2007, Governor Rick Perry appointed Jay Kimbrough, his former staff chief and homeland security director, to serve as "special master" to lead an investigation into the Texas Youth Commission sex abuse scandal.
Shortly thereafter, the commission stopped a hiring practice that had allowed convicted felons to work as administrators in the system.
The practice had involved a requirement that prior criminal records be destroyed for employees hired by the commission.
On March 17, 2007, the entire Texas Youth Commission governing board resigned.
The Texas Youth Commission is the state's juvenile corrections agency, charged "with the care, custody, rehabilitation, and reestablishment in society of Texas' most chronically delinquent or serious juvenile offenders."
Between the age of 10 and 17 when committed
— molesters can continue until 21st birthdays
Inmates are felony-level offenders between the age of 10 and 17 when they are committed.
The commission can maintain jurisdiction over offenders until their 21st birthdays.
The Lone Star Project is organized as a political research and policy analysis project of the Lone Star Fund, a federal political action committee organized in Texas.

        Youth Institutions, Camp and Paramilitary Abuse      
       USA Youth Institutions abuse      
Part of the great puzzle
The Omaha corporations that bankrolled Larry King and Franklin are also the major sponsors of youth organizations in Nebraska, such as Boys Club, Girls Club, Boy Scouts, Boys Town, Uta Halee Home for Girls, and others.
These corporations donate millions of dollars per year to these organizations, as the annual reports of the recipients show.
Many executives of these firms sit on the boards of the youth care facilities.
The donation of so much money and time would seem to indicate a great concern for Nebraska's youth.
Key members of the Omaha business community, however, did nothing to help and plenty to wreck the Franklin committee's investigation into the sexual abuse, ritual torture, and murder of children.
Is it possible that some of these corporate leaders sit on the youth boards, for the same reason that Larry King founded the North Omaha Girls Club?
Why, for instance, did the notorious pedophile Alan Baer join the board of the Boys Club?
And after the extraordinary publicity over his pedophilia in 1989 and 1990, and his indictment for pandering, how is it conceivable that in 1991 Baer was still on the board of Boys Club?
Assume most corporate board members are not involved in child abuse.
But judging by the behavior of the Omaha business community during the Franklin investigation, the ones who are guilty of such behavior enjoy toleration, or even protection, by the others.

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. 

The ring’s pimps were a pair of Republican powerbrokers who used Boys Town as a pedophiliac reservoir, had access to the highest levels of our government, and connections to the CIA.

 Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks: a rash of deaths and a full court press by federal and local law enforcement effected an immaculate cover-up.

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL — Story of a US nationwide pedophile ring
Almost seven years ago, when assigned to do something “dark” for a major New York magazine, journalist Nick Bryant stumbled across the Franklin Scandal, wrote an article and, well … nobody would print it, and we mean nobody.
All had a chance, but no one would: Harpers, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Mother Jones, Rolling Stone, and others.
Nick, a successful and respected free-lance writer, represented by William Morris Agency, could not find any publishing house that would support this probe.

A day or so later, Al and I ended up in Kemp's office, with Kemp insisting that I send the project based certificates to New York HDC.
I explained to him how dangerous this was for him.   He said he did not care, to do it.
The only way I can describe his demeanor was that of terror, something I had never seen Jack in the throws of before.
It was almost like his fear had replaced all ambition, judgement, discernment.   It was scary.
... It was not until I did the chronology and looked at the timing of the Washington Times stories on the homosexual prostitution rings that I started to realize the possible connection.
The Franklin Cover Up by John De Camp gives a sense that this Washington Times story may have been the tip of the iceberg.
That prostitution and pedophila networks were being used for covert ops to win favor from and/or blackmail DC politicians.
Looking at the chronology and some of Kemps more irratic behavior, it is a distinct possibility that Kemp was nervous about exposure of his own activities.
... He [One of my deputies] pulled me aside and said that folks who worked on Kemp's campaign staff who he absolutely trusted had confided in him that Kemp's sexual activities were far worse than merely bi-sexual and to be very careful.
Looking back on it now, I realize he was probably trying to give me a heads up on the pedophilia problem.
At the time, I was simply too dense to believe this and Iran Contra and CIA drug dealing were really going on.
It was just too far a leap for me.
Oh, well.
For the longest time, I never could come up with a rational explanation for how Andrew Cuomo could induce such terror in Jack Kemp in 1989.
Now, I have a plausible one, although that does not make it true.
If Cuomo and his dad were an intimate part of the shadow government financial fraud network we are discussing, he and the network would have easy access to the necessary pictures, vidoes and various blackmail material needed to ensure they got what they wanted out of HUD.
No doubt if the Clintons were helping to run Mena for Bush's Enterprise during Iran-Contra, surely the Cuomo's in New York would have had some major action.
Various Mena allegations allege that the Gotti family were helping to distribute in NY.
... Anyway, that is my personal experience...
... and why Kemp was on board for so much corruption and fraud in Bush I -- and so effective at covering up Iran Contra fraud.
... Since that time, I have read and been told that extensive "control file" systems are in existence.
Corporate and government leaders do not go above a certain level of responsibility unless they have a "control file."
It is a bit like J.Edgar Hoover's dirty pictures.
I am told that if the powers that be can not get a control file on a person, that ultimately they are targeted and discredited like me or "suicided" like the many people who ended up on the website "death lists."
This was said to include Bill Colby who was instrumental in helping John DeCamp write and publish The Franklin Cover Up and win his lawsuit for one of the mind controlled children involved in the pedophilia ring.
The supremacy of the central banking-warfare investment model that has ruled our planet for the last 500 years depends on being able to combine the high margin profits of organized crime with the low cost of capital and liquidity that comes with governmental authority and popular faith in the rule of law.

Our economy depends on insiders having their cake and eating it too and subsidizing a free lunch by stealing from someone else.
This works well when the general population shares in some of the subsidy, grows complacent and does not see the “real deal” on how the system works.
However, liquidity and governmental authority will erode if the general population becomes aware of how things really work.
As this happens, they begin to understand the power of innovative technology and re-engineering of government resources to create greater abundance both for themselves and other people.
As this happens, they lose faith in the myth that the current system is fundamentally legitimate.
This jeopardizes the financial markets that depend on fraudulent collateral and practices to continue to work.
It also jeopardizes the wealth and power of the people who are winning with financial fraud.
... As a consequence, extraordinary attention and sums of money are invested in affirming the myth and appearance of legitimacy.
This includes creating popular explanations of why the rich and powerful are lawful and ethical and the venal poor, hostile foreigners, crafty mobsters and incompetent and irresponsible middle class bureaucrats are to blame for the success of narcotics trafficking, financial fraud and other forms of organized crime.

Our efforts at The Hamilton Securities Group to help HUD achieve maximum return on the sale of its defaulted mortgage assets coincided with a widespread process of “privatization” in which assets were, in fact, being transferred out of governments worldwide at significantly below market value in a manner providing extraordinary windfall profits, capital gains and financial equity to private corporations and investors.

In addition, government functions were being outsourced at prices way above what should have been market price or government costs — again stripping governmental and community resources in a manner that subsidized private interests.
The financial equity gained by private interests was often the result of financial, human, environmental and living equity stripped and stolen from communities — often without communities being able to understand what had happened or to clearly identify their loss.
This is why I now refer to privatization as “piratization.”

Over time I was increasingly shocked by the speed and ease with which many intelligent and seemingly competent members of the CFR [ Council on Foreign Relations ] appeared to eagerly justify policies and actions that supported growing corruption.
The regularity with which many CFR members would protect insiders from accountability regarding another appalling fraud surprised even me.
Many of them seemed delighted with the advantages of being an insider while being entirely indifferent to the extraordinary cost to all citizens of having our lives, health and resources drained to increase insider wealth in a manner that violated the most basic principles of fiduciary obligation and respect for the law.
In short, the CFR was operating in a win-lose economic paradigm that centralized economic and political power.
I was trying to find a way for us to shift to a win-win economic paradigm that was — by its nature — decentralizing.

The reader can appreciate why Wall Street would welcome someone as accommodating as Gorelick at Fannie Mae.
This was a period when the profits rolled in from engineering the most spectacular growth in mortgage debt in U.S. history.
As one real estate broker said, “They have turned our homes into ATM machines.”
Fannie Mae has been a leading player in centralizing control of the mortgage markets into Washington D.C. and Wall Street.
And that means as people were rounded up and shipped to prison as part of Operation Safe Home, Fannie was right behind to finance the gentrification of neighborhoods.
And that is before we ask questions about the extent to which the estimated annual financial flows of $500 billion–$1 trillion money laundering through the U.S. financial system or money missing from the US government are reinvested into Fannie Mae securities.

James Forrestal
James Forrestal’s oil portrait always hung prominently in one of the private Dillon Read dining rooms for the eleven years that I worked at the firm. Forrestal, a highly regarded Dillon partner and President of the firm, had gone to Washington, D.C. in 1940 to lead the Navy during WWII and then played a critical role in creating the National Security Act of 1947.

He then became Secretary of War (later termed Secretary of Defense) in September 1947 and served until March 28, 1949.

Given the central banking-warfare investment model that rules our planet, it was appropriate that Dillon 
partners at various times lead both the Treasury Department and the Defense Department.

Shortly after resigning from government, Forrestal died falling out of a window of the Bethesda Naval Hospital outside of Washington, D.C. on May 22, 1949.

There is some controversy around the official explanation of his death — ruled a suicide.

Some insist he had a nervous breakdown. Some say that he was opposed to the creation of the state of Israel.

Others say that he argued for transparency and accountability in government, and against the provisions instituted at this time to create a secrete “black budget.”

He lost and was pretty upset about it — and the loss was a violent one.

Since the professional killers who operate inside the Washington beltway have numerous techniques to get perfectly sane people to kill themselves, I am not sure it makes a big difference.

Approximately a month later, the CIA Act of 1949 was passed.

The Act created the CIA and endowed it with the statutory authority that became one of the chief components of financing the “black” budget — the power to claw monies from other agencies for the benefit of secretly funding the intelligence communities and their corporate contractors.

This was to turn out to be a devastating development for the forces of transparency, without which there can be no rule of law, free markets or democracy.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt appointed Forrestal as an administrative assistant on June 22, 1940, then nominated him as Undersecretary of the Navy six weeks later. In the latter post, Forrestal would prove to be very effective at mobilizing industrial production for the war effort.
He became Secretary of the Navy on May 19, 1944, following the death of his immediate supervisor Frank Knox from a heart attack. Forrestal then led the Navy through the closing year of the war and the demobilization that followed.   What might have been his greatest legacy as Navy Secretary was an attempt that came to nought.   He, along with Secretary of War Henry Stimson and Under Secretary of State Joseph Grew, in the early months of 1945, strongly advocated a softer policy toward Japan that would permit a negotiated face-saving surrender.   His primary concern was "the menace of Russian Communism and its attraction for decimated, destabilized societies in Europe and Asia", and, therefore, keeping the Soviet Union out of the war with Japan.   Had his advice been followed, Japan might well have surrendered before August 1945, precluding the use of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.   So strongly did he feel about this matter that he cultivated negotiation attempts that bordered closely on insubordination toward the President.
Forrestal opposed the unification of the services, but even so helped develop the National Security Act of 1947 that created the National Military Establishment (the Department of Defense was not created as such until August 1949), and with the former Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson retiring to private life, Forrestal was the next choice.
His 18 months at Defense came at an exceptionally difficult time for the U.S. military establishment:   Communist governments came to power in Czechoslovakia and China; West Berlin was blockaded, necessitating the Berlin Airlift to keep it going; the war between the Arab states and Israel after the establishment of Israel in Palestine; and negotiations were going on for the formation of NATO.   His reign was also hampered by intense interservice rivalries.
In addition, President Harry Truman constrained military budgets billions of dollars below what the services were requesting, putting Forrestal in the middle of the tug-of-war.   Forrestal was also becoming more and more worried about the Soviet threat.   Internationally, the takeover by the Communists of Eastern Europe, their threats to the governments of Greece, Italy, and France, their impending takeover of China, and the invasion of South Korea by North Korea would demonstrate the legitimacy of his concerns on the international front as well.

What Briody does not mention is allegations regarding Brown & Root's involvement in narcotics trafficking. Former LAPD narcotics investigator Mike Ruppert once described his break up with fiance Teddy — an agent dealing narcotics and weapons for the CIA while working with Brown & Root, as follows:
“Arriving in New Orleans in early July, 1977 I found her living in an apartment across the river in Gretna. Equipped with scrambler phones, night vision devices and working from sealed communiqués delivered by naval and air force personnel from nearby Belle Chasse Naval Air Station, Teddy was involved in something truly ugly.
She was arranging for large quantities of weapons to be loaded onto ships leaving for Iran.
At the same time she was working with Mafia associates of New Orleans Mafia boss Carlos Marcello to coordinate the movement of service boats that were bringing large quantities of heroin into the city.
The boats arrived at Marcello controlled docks, unmolested by even the New Orleans police she introduced me to, along with divers, military men, former Green Berets and CIA personnel.
“The service boats were retrieving the heroin from oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, oil rigs in international waters, oil rigs built and serviced by Brown and Root.
The guns that Teddy monitored, apparently Vietnam era surplus AK 47s and M16s, were being loaded onto ships also owned or leased by Brown and Root.
And more than once during the eight days I spent in New Orleans I met and ate at restaurants with Brown and Root employees who were boarding those ships and leaving for Iran within days.
Once, while leaving a bar and apparently having asked the wrong question, I was shot at in an attempt to scare me off.”

The Clinton Administration took the groundwork laid by Nixon, Reagan and Bush and embraced and blossomed the expansion and promotion of federal support for police, enforcement and the War on Drugs with a passion that was hard to understand unless and until you realized that the American financial system was deeply dependent on attracting an estimated $500 billion-$1 trillion of annual money laundering.
Globalizing corporations and deepening deficits and housing bubbles required attracting vast amounts of capital.
Attracting capital also required making the world safe for the reinvestment of the profits of organized crime and the war machine.
Without growing organized crime and military activities through government budgets and contracts, the economy would stop centralizing.
The Clinton Administration was to govern a doubling of the federal prison population.

Norway says Russia has increased military flights in the Arctic
The UK's Royal Air Force has launched fighter jets to intercept eight Russian military planes flying in airspace patrolled by Nato, UK officials say.
Four RAF F3 Tornado aircraft were scrambled in response to the Russian action, the UK's defence ministry said.
The Russian planes - said to be long-range bombers - had earlier been followed by Norwegian F16 jets.
Russia recently revived a Cold War-era practice of flying bombers on long-range patrols.
A Norwegian officer, Lt Col John Inge Oegland, told the BBC the Russian Tupolev Tu-95 Bear bombers flew in international airspace from the Barents Sea to the Atlantic, before turning back.
Two Norwegian F-16s shadowed them on Thursday morning and another two went up later, he said.
There have been several similar incidents in recent months, Lt-Col Oegland added.
"Norway is following the increased Russian activity in the far north with interest," he told the BBC News website.
He said the Russian flights were not causing alarm in Norway.   "Our systems are adequate," he said, when asked whether Norway was bolstering its security in the area.

You cannot take photographs of people in detention, in humiliating positions, positions that are abusive in any way, shape or form.
The only pictures that are ever allowed of people in U.S. military detention would be pictures for documentation purposes.
And, clearly, these pictures are not that.”
Ike Was Right About War Machine
(CBS) The following is a weekly 60 Minutes commentary by CBS News correspondent Andy Rooney broadcast October 2, 2005.
Andy Rooney
I’m not really clear how much a billion dollars is but the United States — our United States — is spending $5.6 billion a month fighting this war in Iraq that we never should have gotten into.
We still have 139,000 soldiers in Iraq today.
Almost 2,000 Americans have died there.   For what?
Now we have the hurricanes to pay for.   One way our government pays for a lot of things is by borrowing from countries like China.
Another way the government is planning to pay for the war and the hurricane damage is by cutting spending for things like Medicare prescriptions, highway construction, farm payments, AMTRAK, National Public Radio and loans to graduate students.   Do these sound like the things you’d like to cut back on to pay for Iraq?
I’ll tell you where we ought to start saving: on our bloated military establishment.
We’re paying for weapons we’ll never use.
No other Country spends the kind of money we spend on our military.   Last year Japan spent $42 billion.   Italy spent $28 billion, Russia spent only $19 billion.   The United States spent $455 billion.
We have 8,000 tanks for example.   One Abrams tank costs 150 times as much as a Ford station wagon.
We have more than 10,000 nuclear weapons — enough to destroy all of mankind.
We’re spending $200 million a year on bullets alone.   That’s a lot of target practice.   We have 1,155,000 enlisted men and women and 225,000 officers.   One officer to tell every five enlisted soldier what to do.   We have 40,000 colonels alone and 870 generals.
We had a great commander in WWII, Dwight Eisenhower.   He became President and on leaving the White House in 1961, he said this: “We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.   The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. ..."
Well, Ike was right.   That’s just what’s happened.
