Proposed by the Uniting Church and seconded by the Anglicans, the motion asks the council's welfare agency, Act for Peace, to help member churches with the boycott and urges Christians involved in interfaith dialogue to include justice for Palestinians in their conversations. Jewish groups were horrified at the resolution.

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli issued the legal opinion Friday extending that authority to Virginia police in response to an inquiry over whether his state could mirror the policies passed into law in Arizona. "It is my opinion that Virginia law enforcement officers, including conservation officers may, like Arizona police officers, inquire into the immigration status of persons stopped or arrested," he wrote.

Appelbaum, a U.S. citizen, was taken into a room, frisked and his bag was searched... They asked questions about Wikileaks, asked for his opinions about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and asked where Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is, but he declined to comment without a lawyer present, according to the sources. He was not permitted to make a phone call, they said.

6 cities to train mail carriers to dispense anti-terror drugs --White House won't name the six cities 02 Aug 2010 The Postal Service is ready to deliver lifesaving drugs to about a quarter of the residents of Minneapolis-St. Paul, the only metropolitan area in the nation where letter carriers have been trained to dispense medication after a large-scale terrorist attack involving biological weapons. Six years after the government began exploring the idea of using postal workers as rapid-response medicine dispensers and eight months after President Obama ordered government agencies to develop a plan to do so, efforts are underway in six cities to train workers to deliver the drugs needed to counter anthrax or other potentially deadly agents, the White House says.

Stealthy Gov't Contractor Monitors US Internet Providers, Worked With Wikileaks Informant

Stealthy Government Contractor Monitors U.S. Internet Providers, Worked With Wikileaks Informant 01 Aug 2010 A semi-secret government contractor that calls itself Project Vigilant surfaced at the Defcon security conference Sunday with a series of revelations: that it monitors the traffic of 12 regional Internet service providers, hands much of that information to federal agencies, and encouraged one of its "volunteers," researcher Adrian Lamo, to inform the federal government about the alleged source of a controversial video of civilian deaths in Iraq leaked to whistle-blower site Wikileaks in April. Chet Uber, the director of Fort Pierce, Fl.-based Project Vigilant, says that he personally asked Lamo to meet with federal authorities to out the source of a video published by Wikileaks showing a U.S. Apache helicopter killing several civilians and two journalists in a suburb of Baghdad, a clip that Wikileaks labeled "Collateral Murder." Lamo, who Uber said worked as an "adversary characterization" analyst for Project Vigilant, had struck up an online friendship with Bradley Manning, a former U.S. Army intelligence analyst who currently faces criminal charges for releasing the classified video.

2 Are Convicted in [Government-Backed] Plot to Bomb Kennedy Airport

2 Are Convicted in [Government-Backed] Plot to Bomb Kennedy Airport --Government involvement: The informant had played a somewhat enabling role in pushing forward the terror plot. 02 Aug 2010 A federal jury found two Guyanese men guilty on Monday of conspiring to blow up Kennedy International Airport, concluding a month-long trial that centered on the men’s plan to set off a series of explosions along a fuel pipeline that cuts through the city...

Obama Says U.S. Shifting Out of Combat Role in Iraq

Obama Says U.S. Shifting Out of Combat Role in Iraq 02 Aug 2010 President Barack Obama told an organization of disabled veterans today that the end of the U.S. combat mission in Iraq by the end of the month won’t mean an end to the fighting there. "There are still those with bombs and bullets who will try to stop Iraq’s progress," he said to the national convention of the Disabled American Veterans in Atlanta. "The hard truth is we have not seen the end of American sacrifice in Iraq." [Right, now it can morph into the full-blown contracting bl*wjob it was always destined to be. Remember Bush's 'Mission Accomplished?' That was supposed to signify the end of the fighting so the contractor and mercenary funding could begin in earnest. Instead, the US had to pay the pseudo-resistance (aka 'the surge') to stop fighting, or face an even greater ignominious defeat. When the soldiers leave, the actual resistance will likely take care of the oil predators. --LRP]

The special inspector general for Iraqi reconstruction, Stuart W. Bowen Jr., said that one quarter of 54 reconstruction projects his office had investigated -- including those providing electricity and other basic services -- had not been completed or carried on by the Iraqis they were built for.

The American left and the WikiLeaks documents

The American left and the WikiLeaks documents By David Walsh 31 July 2010 The release by WikiLeaks of 92,000 secret documents has helped expose the brutal, neo-colonial character of the US-led war in Afghanistan. The documents detail US military atrocities against the Afghan population, reveal the scope of the opposition to the foreign occupation, and expose the stooge regime in Kabul for what it is, a coalition of big business interests, drug lords and sadistic killers... The US media has worked hand in glove with the White House and Pentagon to conceal the horrific character of the conflict. Despite that, the population defeated the Republicans in two elections, 2006 and 2008, in part because of opposition to and suspicion about what the US military was up to in Iraq and Afghanistan. Brought to power promising "change," the Obama administration has continued and escalated the military intervention.
