Police, activists prepare days ahead of Ariz. law

Police, activists prepare days ahead of Ariz. law 27 Jul 2010 The sheriff of Arizona's most populous county is making room in a vast outdoor jail and determined to round up illegal immigrants to fill it. Police from the U.S.-Mexico border to the Grand Canyon are getting last-minute training. And protests and marches are planned throughout Phoenix.

Anti-Immigrant Group Calls for 'Safe Passage' of Illegals Out of U.S.

Anti-Immigrant Group Calls for 'Safe Passage' of Illegals Out of U.S. 27 Jul 2010 An anti-immigration group is calling on the Obama administration to ensure a smooth exit for illegal immigrants who are trying to leave the U.S. due to the weak economy and Arizona's strict new immigration law. Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is urging U.S. citizens to pressure the White House and the Homeland Security Department to establish "safe departure" border checkpoints along the U.S. border for illegal immigrants so they can leave without fear of being detained or prosecuted for immigration crimes.

Pentagon can't account for $8.7 billion in Iraqi funds

Pentagon can't account for $8.7 billion in Iraqi funds 26 Jul 2010 The Defense Department is unable to properly account for $8.7 billion out of $9.1 billion in Iraqi oil revenue entrusted to it between 2004 and 2007, according to a newly released audit that underscores a pattern of poor record-keeping during the war. Of that amount, the military failed to provide any records at all for $2.6 billion in purported reconstruction expenditure, says the report by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, which is responsible for monitoring U.S. spending in Iraq. The rest of the money was not properly deposited in special accounts as required under Treasury Department rules, making it difficult to trace how it was spent.

Congress Approves $60 Billion U.S. War Funds Amid Afghan Policy Complaints

Congress Approves $60 Billion U.S. War Funds Amid Afghan Policy Complaints 27 Jul 2010 The U.S. Congress passed a $60 billion war-funding bill amid attacks on President Barack Obama’s Afghanistan policies inflamed by leaked reports suggesting that Pakistan is aiding Taliban forces. The House voted 308-114 to send the measure to Obama for his signature. House Democratic leaders said they wouldn’t delay the long-stalled war funds any longer with the Pentagon warning of impending furloughs. [Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again (such as voting for alleged agents of 'change') and expecting different results.]

Greenpeace activists close down BP stations in London

Greenpeace activists close down BP stations in London --BP filling stations across London have been shut down by activists. 27 Jul 2010 Environmental group Greenpeace said it had cut fuel supplies to all 50 BP stations in the city.

Senior House Republican says everyone responsible for Wikileaks release should be investigated 27 Jul 2010 Rep. Mike Pence (R-Nutjob-Ind.), co-author of a bipartisan bill to protect reporters and their confidential sources, said all parties responsible for gathering, distributing and publishing documents released by Wikileaks.org about the Afghanistan war ought to be "thoroughly investigated."... "Back home in Indiana, people still remember where the attacks on 9/11 came from," said Pence, the third-ranking House Republican. [So do we. Langley, Virginia.]

Arizona immigration law: Picketers ask Phoenix cops to not enforce SB 1070

Arizona immigration law: Picketers ask Phoenix cops to not enforce SB 1070 27 Jul 2010 Two days before Arizona's new immigration law takes effect, a group of picketers took to Phoenix City Hall, holding up signs asking the police department not to enforce the stringent law. About 20 opponents on Tuesday hoisted signs that featured spray-painted Phoenix Police Department logos and the message, "Do Not Comply With SB 1070." The protesters were organized by Puente, a Hispanic advocacy group known for its support of day laborers.

German drone pilots eye Afghanistan... from Israel

German drone pilots eye Afghanistan... from Israel --Germany joins NATO forces in using Israeli spy drones 27 Jul 2010 Worried by insurgent ambushes on its soldiers in Afghanistan and return fire that sometimes kills civilians or local allies, Germany last year ordered a small fleet of Israeli Heron spy drones designed to provide real-time images above a battlefield. That has brought German jet pilots to coastal Ein Shemer air base for accelerated retraining on the unmanned propeller planes, already daubed with their flag and Iron Cross emblem.

Judge faces anti-Semitism probe after speech attacking Israel helps free arms factory protesters

Judge faces anti-Semitism probe after speech attacking Israel helps free arms factory protesters 24 Jul 2010 A senior judge was under investigation yesterday after being accused of making anti-Semitic remarks in court that may have swayed his jury into acquitting a group of protesters. Judge George Bathurst-Norman was said by critics to have persuaded a jury to clear a group of campaigners who smashed up a factory making parts for Israeli warplanes. Summing up in the criminal damage trial, he compared Israel to the Nazi regime and accused the country of ignoring international law. The judge added that 'there may be much to be admired' about the chief protester, and that 'in the last war he would probably have received a George Medal'. [*Exactly.*]

Requiring masks motivates getting flu shot

Requiring masks motivates getting flu shot 27 Jul 2010 Campaigns can help persuade healthcare workers to get seasonal flu shots but requiring the unvaccinated to wear masks also works, Canadian researchers say. Dr. Larry Chambers of the Elisabeth Bruyere Research Institute in Ottawa and colleagues says seasonal influenza immunization rates among healthcare workers in Canada remain less than 50 percent, but it is recommended that at least 90 percent of those in healthcare who deal with patients be immunized to protect against the seasonal flu virus. [I'd rather don a suit of body armor than get one of their mercury-laden vaccines. --LRP]

EU approves tougher sanctions against Iran 27 Jul 2010 European Union (EU) foreign ministers on Monday endorsed tougher sanctions over Iran's nuclear program, including measures to block oil and gas investment and curtail its refining and natural gas capability.

Radical police shake-up plans 'a return to 1950s'

Radical police shake-up plans 'a return to 1950s' --A return to 1950s-style policing was signalled by the Government yesterday as ministers unveiled plans to recruit tens of thousands of special police constables. 26 Jul 2010 The number of the voluntary officers would increase more than fourfold -- from the current 15,000 to the peak levels of 67,000 last seen more than 50 years ago, said Theresa May, the Home Secretary.

'US psywar plan includes 2 hot wars'

'US psywar plan includes 2 hot wars' 26 Jul 2010 Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the United States and Israel plan to attack two countries in the Middle East as part of a conspiracy to apply pressure on Iran.

U.S. Hunts For Leaker of Afghan War Documents

'We will do what is necessary to try to determine who is responsible for the leaking of this information.' U.S. Hunts For Leaker of Afghan War Documents 26 Jul 2010 The Pentagon said on Monday it was launching a manhunt to find whoever leaked tens of thousands of classified documents on the war in Afghanistan, one of the largest security breaches in U.S. military history.

More leaks were possible, officials acknowledged.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is 'annoyed' by 9/11 truth

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is 'annoyed' by 9/11 truth By SnowCrash 22 Jul 2010 In this interview ['Wanted by the CIA: Wikileaks founder Julian Assange' 19 Jul 2010], Belfast Telegraph reporter Matthew Bell asks Wikileaks founder Julian Assange about "conspiracy theories". Assange subsequently explains his position. His obsession with secrecy, both in others and maintaining his own, lends him the air of a conspiracy theorist. Is he one? "I believe in facts about conspiracies," he says, choosing his words slowly. "Any time people with power plan in secret, they are conducting a conspiracy. So there are conspiracies everywhere. There are also crazed conspiracy theories. It's important not to confuse these two. Generally, when there's enough facts about a conspiracy we simply call this news." What about 9/11? "I'm constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud." [Hmm. Maybe that explains why the CIA hasn't 'found' him. Can you say 'limited hangout?']

Big Payoff for axed boss

Big Payoff for axed boss 26 Jul 2010 BP was last night poised to boot out boss Tony Hayward - with a near £15million pay-off.

It's no Lam-bear-ghini

It's no Lam-bear-ghini 26 Jul 2010 A greedy bear took a car for a joyride when he dived into the vehicle in search of a peanut butter sandwich. The clever creature managed to open the door of the car, close it behind him, put it in gear and send it careering 100ft (30m) down a hill. The owner of the car, 17-year-old Ben Story, had left a peanut butter sandwich on the back seat and the smell attracted the hungry black bear. When cops arrived they found the panicked animal thrashing around inside the Toyota Corolla.

Afghanistan war logs: How US marines sanitised record of bloodbath

Afghanistan war logs: How US marines sanitised record of bloodbath --War logs show how marines gave cleaned up accounts of incident in which they killed 19 civilians 26 Jul 2010 Brevity is the hallmark of military reporting, but even by those standards the description of one especially disastrous event is remarkably short: "The patrol return to base." It started with a suicide bomb. On 4 March 2007 a convoy of US marines, who had arrived in Afghanistan three weeks earlier, were hit by an explosives-rigged minivan outside the southeastern city of Jalalabad. The marines made a frenzied escape, opening fire with automatic weapons as they tore down a six-mile stretch of highway, hitting almost anyone in their way -- teenage girls in the fields, motorists in their cars, old men as they walked along the road. Nineteen unarmed civilians were killed and 50 wounded. None of this, however, was captured in the initial military account, written by the marines themselves. It simply says that, simultaneous with the suicide explosion, "the patrol received small arms fire from three directions".

25 killed as Iraq car bombings target shrine city, media

25 killed as Iraq car bombings target shrine city, media 26 Jul 2010 Twin car bombs killed 21 people in the Shiite holy city of Karbala in southern Iraq on Monday, while four people died in a suicide attack on a Saudi-funded television channel in Baghdad.

War leaks show Obama following Bush policies

War leaks show Obama following Bush policies 26 Jul 2010 The US has condemned the leak of documents on the Afghan war. Leaked US military documents detail how American-led NATO forces in Afghanistan have killed or wounded hundreds of civilians in unreported incidents. The documents leaked by the whistle-blower website Wikileaks say some of the casualties are caused by airstrikes, but a large number is the result of troops shooting unarmed drivers or motorcyclists allegedly to protect themselves.
