Fake Soldier Confession Video Runs As Cover For Real Slaughter

Fake Soldier Confession Video Runs As Cover For Real Slaughter
Dilutes impact of genuine war atrocities like phony rape photos distracted from Abu Ghraib

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison | May 30 2006

A widely circulated video in which an army ranger confessed to the brutal indiscriminate murder of Iraqi civilians and its vehement debunking as a hoax has acted as a smokescreen for the very real admission and evidence of US war crimes in Iraq.

Working in this field for five years and scanning news on a day to day basis you quickly develop and hone a bullshit detector that can spot hoaxes, psy-ops and frauds from a mile off. As soon as the MacBeth Marine video hit the Internet I smelt a very large rat.

The alternative media community is plagued by deliberate disinformation specialists and gullible individuals who will act as unwitting conduits for bogus information. This minefield of deception breeds confusion, distraction and lowers the credibility of the truth community.
who gains then from a fake video confesion? certainly not the leftistas? if its so easily debunked as a hoax then it only serves ? who does an op like this?/ who puts out a fake out so readily? hill and knowlton lincoln group? the bush admin has surly put out enough fake news story why not put out disinfo campaign discredit the genre of reporting with a few well places fake outs. the war is being faught not only to pacify the iraqis but top pacify the "unsettled" americans

what is the fake?

Bush 'planted fake news stories on American TV'
By Andrew Buncombe in Washington
Published: 29 May 2006

Federal authorities are actively investigating dozens of American television stations for broadcasting items produced by the Bush administration and major corporations, and passing them off as normal news. Some of the fake news segments talked up success in the war in Iraq, or promoted the companies' products.

Investigators from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are seeking information about stations across the country after a report produced by a campaign group detailed the extraordinary extent of the use of such items.

Hiding or distorting history behind "national security" leaves the public as the final enemy of the government.

14 Points of fascism

In his original article, "Fascism Anyone?", Laurence Britt (interview) compared the regimes of Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Suharto, and Pinochet and identified 14 characteristics common to those fascist regimes. This page is a collection of news articles dating from the start of the Bush presidency divided into topics relating to each of the 14 points of fascism. Further analysis of American Fascism done by the POAC can be read here.

Rather than veto laws passed by Congress, Bush is using his signing statements to effectively nullify them as they relate to the executive branch.

The Problem with Presidential Signing Statements: Their Use and Misuse by the Bush Administration
Friday, Jan. 13, 2006

Presidential signing statements are old news to anyone who has served in the White House counsel's office. Presidents have long used them to add their two cents when a law passed by Congress has provisions they do not like, yet they are not inclined to veto it. Nixon's statements, for example, often related to spending authorization laws which he felt were excessive and contrary to his fiscal policies.

In this column, I'll take a close look at President Bush's use of signing statements. I find these signing statements are to Bush and Cheney's presidency what steroids were to Arnold Schwarzenegger's body building. Like Schwarzenegger with his steroids, Bush does not deny using his signing statements; does not like talking about using them; and believes that they add muscle.

But like steroids, signing statements ultimately lead to serious trouble.

Dec. 30, 2005: US interrogators cannot torture prisoners or otherwise subject them to cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment.
Bush's signing statement: The president, as commander in chief, can waive the torture ban if he decides that harsh interrogation techniques will assist in preventing terrorist attacks.
Dec. 30: When requested, scientific information ''prepared by government researchers and scientists shall be transmitted [to Congress] uncensored and without delay."
Bush's signing statement: The president can tell researchers to withhold any information from Congress if he decides its disclosure could impair foreign relations, national security, or the workings of the executive branch.
Dec. 23, 2004: Forbids US troops in Colombia from participating in any combat against rebels, except in cases of self-defense. Caps the number of US troops allowed in Colombia at 800.
Bush's signing statement: Only the president, as commander in chief, can place restrictions on the use of US armed forces, so the executive branch will construe the law ''as advisory in nature."

Essentially, this administration is bypassing the judiciary and deciding for itself whether laws are constitutional or not. Somehow, I don’t see the new Supreme Court lineup having much of a problem with that, though. So no matter what laws congress passes, Bush will simply choose to ignore the ones he doesn’t care for. It’s much quieter than a veto, and can’t be overridden by a two-thirds majority. It’s also totally

twins turn triple play

Minnesota turns triple play two weeks after falling victim to it

MINNEAPOLIS -- A triple play is a rarity in baseball, but don't tell that to the Twins.

Just two weeks after the Twins hit into a triple play against the White Sox on May 14, they managed to turn one themselves on Saturday night in their 9-5 win over the Mariners at the Metrodome.

"I've only seen like three in my whole career, and two happened this month," Torii Hunter said. "That's pretty exciting to see a triple play. I get chills. I'm a defensive guy and it's kind of fun to see a triple play in person."

It was the first triple play turned for the Twins since July 17, 1990, at Boston -- when the team accomplished the feat twice in the same game -- and the 11th one in club history.

“the press gallery has taken the view that they are going to be the opposition to the government.”

Canadian Prime Minister Harper attempts to muzzle the press
By Keith Jones
27 May 2006

Canada’s new Conservative Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, is refusing to meet the country’s national press.

Harper announced Wednesday that he will no longer give press conferences for the parliamentary press gallery, after journalists balked at the attempts by the prime minister’s office to dictate who can and cannot ask him questions.

On Tuesday many reporters walked out of a Harper press conference to protest his handlers’ demands that prior to such conferences they be given lists of who wants to question the prime minister so that they and Harper can choose journalists to be called upon for questions.

“We can’t accept that the prime minister’s office would decide who gets to ask questions,” declared Yves Malo, the president of the press gallery and a reporter for the French-language television network TVA. “Does that mean that when there’s a crisis they’ll only call upon journalists they expect softball questions from?”

Harper subsequently justified his attempt to vet and muzzle the press corps—an action patterned after steps taken by the Bush White House—by charging the national media with anti-Conservative and pro-liberal bias. “Unfortunately,” said Harper, “the press gallery has taken the view that they are going to be the opposition to the government.”

Harper added that henceforth he will be available only to regional media.

Harper’s claims that the national press are out to undermine and defeat his government are, on the face of it, risible.

the Republican Party committed economic terrorism against the people of California


90-fold Price Rise Not Called Gouging

by Michael Hammerschlag

The Kenny Boy Lay and Jeff Skilling conviction was gratifying, but neither lowlife should ever see the light of day again. In the Great 2000-2001 California Energy Robbery, a group of 6 power companies, led by Enron, through manipulating power production, raised rates up to 90 fold.

California people and firms were paying as much in a day for electricity as they had in 3 months, threatening to shutdown the world's 6th largest economy. Then in a breathlessly audacious scam, the Republicans (who had probably engineered it to punish California for voting 12% more for Gore) managed to use the 3-fold higher power contracts Gov. Gray Davis signed with a gun to his and his state's temple... to depose him and replace him with the Terminator. Ahnold quickly agreed to almost cancel the $9 billion refund of the theft, getting only 10-20% in a devils bargain with the power companies.

Gearing up for holiday weekend

And how does Oscar really do holiday weekends? Well the summer ones for sure are spent mostly pantless. Worked Saturday 6-2:30 so that blows the three day weekend part, but we make up for the lost pay of a Monday off so all is well. Yesterday I told the guys if they showed up we were having a raffle, today I had to stick to my word and hold a raffle. I had them all pitch in a dollar. There were 22 of them total I made up the difference so we had two 25.00 winners. I put 20 slips of paper in a hard hat with the letters h f of s and two slips with 25.00. I made a slight error and didn't fold the paper and a rule should have been in effect that nobody looked at the paper they drew until all had one. Cause we didn't get all the tickets drawn. Nobody bitched though cause I think I surprised them with even having a fookun raffle. I put up 28.00 of my own cash and didn't draw a lot so I think it was fair and kinda fun thing on a holiday weekend when we all stayed in town and worked for the man........(oh yeah h f of s? You ask? Well if you are the first one to guess it I'll send you 5.00 in the mail)one guess per email

To Open Across America July 28

CANNES, FRANCE – Aaron Russo’s incendiary political documentary which exposes many of the governmental organizations and entities that have abridged the freedoms of U.S. citizens had its international premiere at Cannes and won a standing ovation. The event, which was held on the beach and filled to capacity, was open to the public and drew a crowd of people who stood along the boardwalk to watch the film.

Through interviews with U.S. Congressmen, as well the former IRS Commissioner, former IRS and FBI agents, tax attorneys and authors, Russo proves conclusively that there is no law requiring citizens to pay a direct tax on their labor. His film connects the dots between money creation, federal income tax, voter fraud, the national identity card (which becomes law in May 2008) and the implementation of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to track citizens. Neither left nor right-wing in perspective, the film concludes that the U.S. government is taking on the characteristics of a police state. Doc will open on multiple screens in cities across the U.S. beginning July 28.

The international audience at Cannes as well as the European media has been fascinated by Russo’s fiery diatribe against the direction America is heading. The discussion that followed the preview lasted for thirty minutes. Actor Nick Nolte, in Cannes for the premiere of “Over The Hedge,” joined Russo during the event. “The information in this film is something everybody has to know”, said Nolte, who was the lead actor in “Teachers,” a film produced by Russo.

“I made this movie because I want to live in a free country and I want my kids and grandkids to live in a free country. The American people must abandon the myth that America is still the land of liberty that it once was.”

What if the United States experienced a constitutional crisis and no one reported it?

May 26, 2006 -- What if the United States experienced a constitutional crisis and no one reported it? The recent statements by House Speaker Dennis Hastert that the Bush White House was overstepping its constitutional separation of powers bounds by allowing the FBI to storm into a member of Congress' office and then "leaking" Justice Department information to intimidate the Speaker after he publicly complained about the raid indicate that this nation is experiencing a drastic constitutional crisis. The fact that the corporate media is not reporting this crisis is understandable when one considers that social studies (once called "civics") in this nation's education system is relegated to an afterthought and our corporate media talking heads and stenographers have as much knowledge of the U.S. Constitution as anyone who has ever passed a high school GED.

The bourse would allow oil transactions to be made in petro-euros, thus discarding the dollar.

Vladimir Putin and the rise of the petro-ruble

by Mike Whitney

“If one day the world’s largest oil producers demanded euros for their barrels, it would be the financial equivalent of a nuclear strike”. Bill O’ Grady, A.G. Edwards

On May 10, Russian President Vladimir Putin ignited a firestorm that is bound to sweep across the global economy. In his State of the Nation speech to parliament,, he announced that Russia was planning to make the ruble “internationally convertible” so that it could be used in oil and natural gas transactions. Presently, oil is denominated exclusively in dollars and sold through the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMX) or the London Petroleum Exchange (LPE) both owned by American investors. If Russia proceeds with its plan, the ruble will go nose to nose with the dollar on the open market sending several billions of surplus greenbacks back to the United States. This could potentially send the American economy into freefall; triggering a deep recession and an extended period of hyper-inflation.

“The ruble must become a more widespread means of international transactions,” Putin said. “To this end, we need to open a stock exchange in Russia to trade in oil, gas, and other goods to be paid for in rubles."

Currently, the central banks around the world carry large stockpiles of dollars to use in their purchases of oil. This gives the US a virtual monopoly on oil transactions. It also forces reluctant nations to continue using the dollar even though it is currently underwritten by $8.4 trillion national debt.

Justice Department says 56,428 inmates added in one year

American Gulag: Jail, prison populations rise 2.6 percent

Sunday, May 21 2006 @ 08:52 PM PDT

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- More than 1,000 inmates were added to the nation's prisons and jails each week from June 2004 to June 2005, according to a report issued Sunday by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Jail, prison populations rise 2.6 percent

Justice Department says 56,428 inmates added in one year

Sunday, May 21, 2006

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- More than 1,000 inmates were added to the nation's prisons and jails each week from June 2004 to June 2005, according to a report issued Sunday by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The 56,428 new inmates -- including both convicts and those awaiting trial -- added to the system over the 12-month period account for a 2.6 percent rise in the U.S. prison and jail population, according to a synopsis of the Bureau of Justice Statistics report.

Two-thirds of the nearly 2.2 million total inmates were in state or federal prisons, and the rest were in local jails.

Montana's state prison population saw the largest increase -- 7.9 percent -- closely followed by South Dakota -- up 7.8 percent.

Both states have reported a spike in methamphetamine addiction -- particularly among female prisoners -- in their facilities.

In Montana, 85 percent of the state's female prisoners are incarcerated because of meth-related offenses, according to Rep. Denny Rehberg, a Republican member of the U.S. House Meth Caucus who has pushed for more funding of anti-meth media campaigns.

South Dakota's Department of Corrections Administration reported that, during a three-month period in 2005, 41 percent of its female prisoners were addicted to meth -- a rise of 11 percent from the previous year.

The state's male prisoner population grew by 3 percent, according to the administration, which released the numbers in January.

"The data is clear: Drug use is driving up prison numbers throughout the region," the state's corrections secretary Tim Reisch said in the news release. "In South Dakota, we are directing our resources to address the issue head on."

Montana and South Dakota were among 10 states that saw more than 5 percent growth in their state prison systems, while 12 others -- including Vermont, Idaho and New York -- reported decreases.

Other statistics released in the report include:

# The population in federal prisons rose nearly 3 percent, to 184,484 inmates, in the 12-month period;

# In the past 10 years, the nation's prison and jail population has risen by more than 600,000;

# The increase of 33,539 jail inmates over the 12-month period was the largest increase since 1997;

# At mid-year 2005, nearly 60 percent of offenders in local jails were racial or ethnic minorities, a statistic that has not changed in the past decade;

# At mid-year 2005, nearly 4.7 percent of black men, nearly 2 percent of Hispanic men, and 0.7 percent of white men nationwide were in a prison or jail.

# At mid-year 2005, jail facilities were operating at 95-percent capacity;

# Female inmates represent about 13 percent of the jail population, a 2.5 percent increase over the past decade;

# During the 12-month period, just a few hundred more inmates (33,539) than beds (33,398) were added to local jails.

The Sentencing Project, an advocacy group, reports that the U.S. incarceration rate in 2004 was the highest in the world, at 724 per 100,000 population. Second was Russia, at 532 per 100,000.

The Justice Department study's author told CNN that the comparison was not included in the report because it was not clear to U.S. authorities whether other countries compiled their information in the same way.

Surveillance of Journalists

ABC’s Ross: Surveillance of Journalists ‘Makes Me Feel…As If We Are Drug Dealers or Terrorists’ »

This morning on CNN’s Reliable Sources, ABC’s chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross — who this week learned he was the target of federal surveillance operations — described the effect that unchecked spying is having on journalists:

ROSS: [I]t makes me feel, in a way — and this is, I think, the disturbing part — as if we are drug dealers or terrorists trying to traffic in information, and should we be using bags full of quarters like old Mafia capos to avoid having our phone calls traced? I don’t think I’m doing anything wrong; I don’t think any other reporter is, either. We’re trying to cover these stories, which are difficult, but which are very important.

Ross also revealed that the surveillance has had a chilling effect on his sources, who now risk being exposed:

I’m working on a big story now with people who are confidential sources inside the Federal Air Marshal Service. They were all alarmed that they might be exposed as talking with me in violation of rules. So it’s of great concern.

Testimony from a former U.S. Army Ranger

Jessie Macbeth, a Former Army Ranger and Iraq War Veteran Tells All

This 20 minute interview will change how you view the U.S. occupation of Iraq forever. I cannot possibly recommend this more highly. An Iraq war veteran tells of atrocities he and other fellow-soldiers committed reguarly while in Iraq. I have never seen this level of honesty from a U.S. soldier who directly participated in the slaughtering of Iraqis.


"When we were doing the night raids in the houses, we would pull people out and have them all on their knees and zip-tied. We would ask the man of the house questions. If he didn't answer the way we liked, we would shoot his youngest kid in the head. We would keep going, this was our interrogation. He could be innocent. He could be just an average Joe trying to support his family. If he didn't give us a satisfactory answer, we'd start killing off his family until he told us something. If he didn't know anything, I guess he was SOL."


"For not speaking out, I feel like I'm betraying my battle-buddies that died."

Americans don't like President Bush

Americans don't like President Bush personally much anymore, either
By Steven Thomma
Knight Ridder Newspapers

WASHINGTON - It's not just the way he's doing his job. Americans apparently don't like President Bush personally much anymore, either.

A drop in his personal popularity, as measured by several public polls, has shadowed the decline in Bush's job-approval ratings and weakened his political armor when he and his party need it most.

Losing that political protection - dubbed "Teflon" when Ronald Reagan had it - is costing Bush what the late political scientist Richard Neustadt called the "leeway" to survive hard times and maintain his grip on the nation's agenda. Without it, Bush is a more tempting target for political enemies. And members of his party in Congress are less inclined to stand with him.

Poker tips site harbours Trojan

Losing hand
By John Leyden
Published Tuesday 16th May 2006 14:17 GMT

Security watchers have discovered a Trojan with built in root-kit functionality that's designed to steal the credentials of online poker players.

This isn't particularly unusual in itself, but anti-virus researchers at Finnish security firm F-Secure discovered the malware was hidden in a ostensibly legitimate package offered for download at, a site which provides advice and tools to online poker players.

Analysis of the Trojan revealed a sophisticated and targeted attack featuring a number of malware (executable) components that a compromised package called RBCalc.exe (AKA Rakeback calculator) deposits on vulnerable Windows PCs.

"The purpose of the dropped executables is to collect login information for various online poker websites from the user's computer and send them back to the malware author. In addition, the main malware component was protected by a rootkit driver that hid its process and launch point from registry," F-Secure's researchers note in a blog entry.

If you're standing by the story, can you shed any light on why your report is so different than the characterization Rove's spokesman is offering?

Karl Rove, Jason Leopold and the hunt for the truth

We don't know whether Karl Rove will be indicted today, tomorrow, later this week or never. But we do understand that there's a distinction between Truthout's Jason Leopold and the bloggers who've been writing about him, and that gives us at least one leg up on the folks at the Wall Street Journal.

The Journal's Anne Marie Squeo checks in today on Leopold's report that Rove has already been indicted in the Valerie Plame case, and she uses her story as an occasion for a little blog-bashing. Squeo says that bloggers have "blurred the lines with traditional media and changed both the dynamics of the reporting process and how political rumors swirl," and she quotes Jay Rosen for the proposition that the blogosphere has a "let's see if this holds up" philosophy when it comes to news.

A good offense may be the best defense, but the truth is an even better one. Sooner or later, we'll know what it is.

then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld ordered Tomba not to answer legislators' questions,

The fight over domestic intelligence surveillance is more about legal loopholes than illegal listening.

After leaving the National Security Agency in 1976, Joseph J. Tomba had no contact with his former employer until 2004. Then, for the first time in almost three decades, the super-secret signals intelligence agency called to ask him to come back to headquarters to be interviewed for an in-house training film. Though long retired from government service, Tomba, a former technical specialist for NSA, proceeded to Fort Meade, Md., home of the agency. The film, however, had nothing to do with instruction about technical specialist work. It was a primer for NSA employees on how to deal with congressional inquiries and subpoenas. Tomba has a unique perspective on the subject. On Feb. 25, 1976, the West Virginia-born engineer became the first, and so far the only, NSA employee subpoenaed by Congress for his role in a domestic surveillance program. And because he was a less-than-cooperative witness before a House Government Operations subcommittee, he also became the only NSA employee to be recommended for a citation for contempt of Congress. The lack of cooperation wasn't entirely his idea. As part of a sweeping assertion of executive privilege by President Gerald Ford, then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld ordered Tomba not to answer legislators' questions, particularly those about Project Shamrock, under which NSA had spent the previous three decades intercepting almost all outgoing U.S. telegram traffic. he also became the only NSA employee to be recommended for a citation for contempt of Congress.

The prosecutor informs the court he will introduce Cheney's hand-written notes as evidence

tell Rove that he has 24 hours to get his affairs in order

Karl Rove Indicted on Charges of Perjury, Lying to Investigators
By Jason Leopold
t r u t h o u t | Report

Saturday 13 May 2006

Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald spent more than half a day Friday at the offices of Patton Boggs, the law firm representing Karl Rove.

During the course of that meeting, Fitzgerald served attorneys for former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove with an indictment charging the embattled White House official with perjury and lying to investigators related to his role in the CIA leak case, and instructed one of the attorneys to tell Rove that he has 24 hours to get his affairs in order, high level sources with direct knowledge of the meeting said Saturday morning.

Robert Luskin, Rove's attorney, did not return a call for comment. Sources said Fitzgerald was in Washington, DC, Friday and met with Luskin for about 15 hours to go over the charges against Rove, which include perjury and lying to investigators about how and when Rove discovered that Valerie Plame Wilson was a covert CIA operative and whether he shared that information with reporters, sources with direct knowledge of the meeting said.

It was still unknown Saturday whether Fitzgerald charged Rove with a more serious obstruction of justice charge. Sources close to the case said Friday that it appeared very likely that an obstruction charge against Rove would be included with charges of perjury and lying to investigators.

Rove Informs White House He Will Be Indicted

Rove Informs White House He Will Be Indicted
By Jason Leopold
t r u t h o u t | Report

Friday 12 May 2006

Within the last week, Karl Rove told President Bush and Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten, as well as a few other high level administration officials, that he will be indicted in the CIA leak case and will immediately resign his White House job when the special counsel publicly announces the charges against him, according to sources.

Details of Rove's discussions with the president and Bolten have spread through the corridors of the White House where low-level staffers and senior officials were trying to determine how the indictment would impact an administration that has been mired in a number of high-profile political scandals for nearly a year, said a half-dozen White House aides and two senior officials who work at the Republican National Committee.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, sources confirmed Rove's indictment is imminent. These individuals requested anonymity saying they were not authorized to speak publicly about Rove's situation. A spokesman in the White House press office said they would not comment on "wildly speculative rumors."

Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, did not return a call for comment Friday.

Stephen Colbert: New American Hero

Virtually overnight, Stephen Colbert became a hero to countless Americans, following his April 30 performance at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner.

...The fact is, Stephen Colbert is at the acme of rising independent voices -- in the blogosphere, on the internet, in publishing and independent filmmaking -- who are being aggressive and playing hardball the way the right does. And guess what? The establishment is getting nervous. The powers-that-be know that people respond to passion, anger and resistance, emotions that convey meaning and seriousness, and the will to fight hard for important issues.Stephen Colbert turned the heat up on them all:It's getting hotter in the kitchen, and some of those who have the most to hide are getting closer to a meltdown.

Deposed CIA head Porter Goss was once a member of the CIA's super-secret Operation 40, an assassination squad

May 6 2006--Venice,FL.

Deposed CIA head Porter Goss was once a member of the CIA's super-secret Operation 40, an assassination squad which roamed through North and Central America during the 1960's.

Along with a number of men whose names became famous and whose lives and careers comprise a large part of America’s Secret History, Goss appears (see a comparison) in the historic photograph at right, which also appears on the cover of "Barry & 'the boys': The CIA, the Mob, and America's Secret History."

It is the only extant photograph of the members of Operation Forty, the CIA’s assassination squad, taken in a Mexico City nightclub in 1963.

Coupled with his close proximity to the terrorist hijackers who used his Congressional District in Charlotte County as one of their main bases of operations, this fact virtually shouts out for closer examination during the post-mortems dissecting his tenure as CIA chief.
Barry Seal had been recruited at the age of 17, along with Lee Oswald, by CIA agent David Ferrie, at a two week summer camp of the Louisiana Civil Air Patrol in 1957.

"U.S. carriers don't exist, so there is no reason for the U.S. to have leases on any terminals."

.... The entire concept of cargo shipping since its inception in the 1940s was to get the cargo on and off ships quickly, which required immediate access to a berth.
"So the goal was to control the berth whether through an outright purchase of the terminal or building, or to lease on an exclusive basis, and therein lies the problem -- carriers want control, and there are no more U.S. flag container carriers," Mr. Frost said. "U.S. carriers don't exist, so there is no reason for the U.S. to have leases on any terminals."
Some U.S. companies still operate ports and often work in partnership with foreign entities to run their ports.
China Ocean Shipping Co., for example, contracts with SSA Marines of Seattle to operate terminals it leases in Long Beach, Calif. The company is owned by the Chinese Army, which also controls Hutchison Port Holdings of Hong Kong, which operates the Panama Canal.
U.S. flag ships are still operated by a Danish company and the government of Singapore, but there has not been a U.S. flag carrier on the open seas since 1999.
The problems began with the 1936 Shipping Act, which set subsidies and locked companies into strict trade routes that restricted competition. The industry collapsed in the 1990s after Congress repealed a shipping industry tax break, Mr. Frost said.

Dubai Company Takes Over 9 U.S. Military Facilities

As I warned earlier in this column (, a United Arab Emirates company has been given control of some 9 U.S. military facilities. The deal is now official.

According to an AP report that ran in my hometown newspaper, The Pensacola News Journal, on Saturday, April 29, 2006, "President Bush has approved the takeover by a Dubai-owned company of American plants that make parts for jets and tanks after a review that seems to have satisfied lawmakers who helped block an earlier Dubai deal." The AP report also said, "Initial reaction from Capitol Hill was favorable."

Specifically, the Dubai company takes over control of at least nine factories, including military production facilities in Connecticut and Georgia. Dubai settled the deal for $1.2 billion.

Therefore, Dubai will now take over operations of factories that produce engine components and turbine blades for military platforms. Clients include Boeing, General Electric, Honeywell, and Pratt and Whitney. Please understand that when we talk about a Dubai company we are talking about a foreign government!

Spies Among Us
Despite a troubled history, police across the nation are keeping tabs on ordinary Americans

By David E. Kaplan

In the Atlanta suburbs of DeKalb County, local officials wasted no time after the 9/11 attacks. The second-most-populous county in Georgia, the area is home to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the FBI's regional headquarters, and other potential terrorist targets. Within weeks of the attacks, officials there boasted that they had set up the nation's first local department of homeland security. Dozens of other communities followed, and, like them, DeKalb County put in for--and got--a series of generous federal counterterrorism grants. The county received nearly $12 million from Washington, using it to set up, among other things, a police intelligence unit.

The outfit stumbled in 2002, when two of its agents were assigned to follow around the county executive. Their job: to determine whether he was being tailed--not by al Qaeda but by a district attorney investigator looking into alleged misspending. A year later, one of its plainclothes agents was seen photographing a handful of vegan activists handing out antimeat leaflets in front of a HoneyBaked Ham store. Police arrested two of the vegans and demanded that they turn over notes, on which they'd written the license-plate number of an undercover car, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, which is now suing the county. An Atlanta Journal-Constitution editorial neatly summed up the incident: "So now we know: Glazed hams are safe in DeKalb County."

The War On Fucking

by tristero
.... So-called "Christian" sex manuals go into considerable detail as to what intimate activities are permitted or not - to opposite-gender married couples only, naturally. Speaking about one rather popular leisure activity, Tim and Beverly LaHaye, "don't recommend or advocate oral sex" but they can find nothing in the Bible that prevents a married couple from "enjoying" it. Actually, this is a bit of a dodge, because if you read what Tim LaHaye has to say elsewhere, it's clear he finds oral sex disgusting. These clowns not only want to limit sex to state-approved coupling, but also dictate to the rest of us where we can put our lips, vulvas, penises, hands, asses, and breasts. And if we don't do sex their way, we are immoral. They fervently hope, once again, we'll be subject to arrest.

Sorry about the "Gupta"

Worked today. We are so behind I guess we need to work weekends and overtime to try and catch the schedule. Didn't put my bags on but, I worked to get the cartoon drawings of the 1st floor bar into a solid look for the "brain wizards" to see on Monday they could make some minor adjustments after they see it in the flesh so to speak. Ken started the fireplace as requested, rocked 1st floor with 4-5 guys made a little progress. I think I missed instructing them on the way to router the lights in place that will be an issue on Monday I'm sure! 6-7 guys worked framing walls and ceilings at 5f today only made it up there once today as we had no elevator operator, and I was fookun busy building shit from a cartoon. Had a chicken barbecue Sammy at the bar across the street, it was cold in the middle I'm sure I have avian flu as we speak!
the real fuck up of the day came about two o'clock when I was about to start another ceiling soffit connection. I noticed a piece of track was in line with both my beam wrap and an adjacent wall. Well it shouldn't have been in line it should have been offset by 5/8 of an inch. The rest of the day was spent finding out where the problem was how to fix it and a bunch of cocksuckinmotherfuckinbastiges being thrown about. I only smashed one piece of sheetrock against a stud so no real damage was done. I needed an extreme vent position the verbiage wasn't enough I needed to smash something to redirect my pain of mental anguish that comes to me when something I directed gets done incorrectly. Not to fault anyone but myself for my lack of proper communication skills to the less than brilliant help we sometimes need to endure in our workaday lives. That being said out here in the blogosphere makes me feel better and I'll deal with the rest on Monday a calmer cooler more collected soul. Maybe I'll take some pictures too for all my Belgian friend.
