Reflections by a Former US Marine on the Mavi Marmara

Reflections by a Former US Marine on the Mavi Marmara: On Cowardice and Violence By Ken O'Keefe 07 Jun 2010 I knew the commandos were murdering when I removed a 9mm pistol from one of  them.  I had that gun in my hands and as an ex-US Marine with training in the use of guns it was completely within my power to  use that gun on the commando who may have been the murderer of one  of my brothers.  But that is not what I, nor any other defender of  the ship did.  I took that weapon away, removed the bullets,  proper lead bullets, separated them from the weapon and hid the  gun.  I did this in the hopes that we would repel the attack and  submit this weapon as evidence in a criminal trial against Israeli  authorities for mass murder.

BP buys 'oil spill' sponsored links for search engines

BP buys 'oil spill' sponsored links for search engines 07 Jun 2010 As daily clean-up costs to BP spiral to $37 million per day and its chief executive is vilified in the press, the company is trying to fight back - by buying search terms. So each time someone enters a relevant query - say "oil spill" - into a search engine such as Google, Yahoo or Bing, their results also include a paid-for link from BP. Typically, these sponsored links sit above the genuine results. [WHY is this terrorist organization - BP - still *functioning?* Stuff Hayward and his cohorts into a CIA Gulfstream, ship them to Bush's Gitmo or Obama's Bagram, waterboard them with oily water, try and convict them for eco-crimes against humanity, divide their assets and be done with it. --LRP]
