The Rachel Corrie was meant to have travelled with the original six-ship convoy that Israeli commandoes intercepted this week in a botched operation that killed nine people.

BP chief Tony Hayward sold shares weeks before oil spill

BP chief Tony Hayward sold shares weeks before oil spill --The chief executive of BP sold £1.4 million of his shares in the fuel giant weeks before the Gulf of Mexico oil spill gusher caused its value to collapse. Tony Hayward cashed in about a third of his holding in the company one month before a well on the Deepwater Horizon rig burst, causing an environmental disaster. Mr Hayward, whose pay package is £4 million a year, then paid off the mortgage on his family’s mansion in Kent, which is estimated to be valued at more than £1.2 million. There is no suggestion that he acted improperly or had prior knowledge that the company was to face the biggest setback in its history. His decision, however, means he avoided losing more than £423,000 when BP’s share price plunged after the oil spill began six weeks ago. [I am starting to think false flag. If that is the case, we had better hear calls for the second American Revolution. As it is, I am wondering why BP's HQ are *still standing.* --LRP]

But on Tuesday, the panel of justices in the Illinois Appellate Court's Third District reversed the decision to deny the Maxons' request.

Army Plans $100 Million Special Ops HQ in Afghanistan

Army Plans $100 Million Special Ops HQ in Afghanistan By Noah Shachtman 03 Jun 2010 The Army is looking to spend as much as $100 million to expand its Special Operations headquarters in northern Afghanistan. All around Afghanistan, from Kandahar Airfield to the Bagram jail, the U.S. military is on a building spree, spending hundreds of millions of dollars on wartime encampments. By one count, America and its allies now have 700 bases in Afghanistan. But most of the construction -- and most of the extra troops "surging" into the country -- are going to the violent south and the dangerous east. [That's so the USociopaths can pay contractors to rebuild that which they had destroyed. See also: The Obusha AfPak Money Pit By Lori Price.]
