"In a time of fear, I believe that the majority of the American people will cling to authority," Ellsberg told the gathering at Columbia High School for New Jersey Peace Action's annual luncheon.

"And if there is another terror attack," Ellsberg added sarcastically, "I believe the president will get what he wants. And what he wants is a new Patriot Act, one that will make the current Patriot Act look like the Bill of Rights."

Having recently reported how ISPs are being pressurized into revealing information on internet users, the USA stands on the threshold of a far more ominous threat to privacy that will force ISPs to allow a wide range of law enforcement agencies direct real time access to their own systems.

A deputy interior minister said he was stunned by their treatment. "I've never seen such a situation like this during the past two years in Baghdad. This is the worst," he told CNN. "I saw signs of physical abuse by brutal beating, one or two detainees were paralysed and some had their skin peeled off."

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraq's prime minister said Tuesday that 173 Iraqi detainees — malnourished and showing signs of torture — were found at an Interior Ministry basement lockup seized by U.S. forces in Baghdad. The discovery appeared to validate Sunni complaints of abuse by the Shiite-controlled ministry.

LONDON - Home Secretary Charles Clarke ordered the extradition of British national Babar Ahmad to face terror charges in the United States.

Ahmad's family said they would appeal against his extradition to the United States, which alleges he tried to set up a terrorist training camp in Arizona in 1998 and raised money to finance attacks in Chechnya and Afghanistan.

Comment: Attorneys in the UK argued that if Ahmad is sent to the US, his rights may very well be violated. We're not sure which is more shocking: that the Bush administration can get away with violating the civil and human rights of even US citizens, or that other countries - knowing full well what will happen to their own nationals - nevertheless ship them off to "stand trial" in the US.

WASHINGTON - Pentagon officials acknowledged Tuesday that U.S. troops used white phosphorous as a weapon against insurgent strongholds during the battle of Fallujah last November. But they denied an Italian television news report that the spontaneously flammable material was used against civilians.

Comment: From The Independent:

Jeff Englehart, a former marine who spent two days in Fallujah during the battle, said he heard the order go out over military communication that WP was to be dropped. In the RAI film, Mr Englehart, now an outspoken critic of the war, says: "I heard the order to pay attention because they were going to use white phosphorus on Fallujah. In military jargon it's known as Willy Pete ... Phosphorus burns bodies, in fact it melts the flesh all the way down to the bone ... I saw the burned bodies of women and children."

Given that the US government lied about the use of WP in the first place, it is clear that they have no qualms about deceiving the American people. As such, nothing they say - including their recent clarifications - can be trusted.

· Officer ignored warnings that teenager was terrified
· Defence says 'confirming the kill' standard practice

An Israeli army officer who fired the entire magazine of his automatic rifle into a 13-year-old Palestinian girl and then said he would have done the same even if she had been three years old was acquitted on all charges by a military court yesterday.

Click to Expand Article
Comment: How would you react if you were the parents of this little girl? Would you think that justice had been done?

The girl was clearly no threat. She had been identified by the Israelis as a scared, little girl. The article suggests that the only danger for the Israelis was if she had been sent out to lure them into a trap, which means the way for the Israelis to remain out of danger would have been to stay put. Instead, they go out, are not fired upon, which shows that it was not a trap, and then the accused empties his weapon into her body. However, this hypothesis implies that the Palestinians are such savages that they would risk the life of a small child in such a ploy. Such are the unstated assumptions in much mainstream news reporting on the conflict.

But her killer is "innocent". In Israel, he is innocent because the lives of the Palestinians are considered to be worth nothing.

How would you react if this was your little girl, your little sister?

How would you react if this was your neighbour? How would you react if every time your children went outside, you didn't know if they would come home alive or not?

How would you react if you knew that no matter how many of your children, or your friends' children, or your village's children were cruelly murdered, there was nothing you could do about it, that there was no justice.

And what solace is justice when you have lost a child, when you know the conditions for the cold-blooded killing of other children are still in place and would remain in place even if one or two Israeli soldiers were punished? The conditions of the Palestinians will not change as long as Israel remains an occupier state, a killer state that can feed off of the Palestinians with impunity, while the Palestinians have no home, no land, and are kept imprisoned in continually shrinking reservations.

In the wake of recent bomb attacks targeting three hotels in the Jordanian capital Amman, the corporate media attempted to shape events to the liking of the Bushcons and the Israelis.

Uruknet suggests that Amman’s attacks were carried out by seasoned experts, particularly from Mossad, with the complicity of Jordan’s intelligence and America’s CIA, in an attempt to shift the support from average Sunni Jordanians for the Sunni resistance in Iraq.

The guilty plea by Sharon means that he is likely to bear the full brunt of the charges of illegal funding of the campaign which secured his father the Likud leadership.

The one shadow still hanging over the Prime Minister himself is a continuing investigation into payments by the South Africa-based businessman Cyril Kern which were allegedly made to cover the cost of repayment of illegal campaign contributions. The investigation is said to be progressing very slowly.

It is rumoured that the Green Paper on welfare form, promised in the Queen's Speech during the first six months of this Parliament, is now going to be quietly shunted back to some time next year. The practical reason for this is that John Hutton has only just taken over as the minister for Work and Pensions, and can't possibly turn round an important document such as this one in a matter of weeks. The political reason is that Blair fears that, having "tasted blood", the rebels on his back benches will now ensure that the Government's "radical reforms" won't get through.

A small army of technocrats, numbering up to 40,000, is employed to watch over China's 100 million-plus internet users, or "netizens", the second-largest internet population in the world after the US. They have been bolstered by a raft of new regulations introduced earlier this year that restrict what websites and bulletin boards can talk about or report.

The main targets of the government's crackdown are the myriad blogs and the Chinese-language online forums such as Tianya Community, Yannan Forum and Xicihutong. Not only do they spread the news that is not reported by official news agencies such as Xinhua, but they offer a national perspective on current events.

There are two unique characteristics of Wikipedia that can be very damaging to a person, corporation, or group. The first is that anyone can edit an article, and there is no guarantee that any article you read has not been edited maliciously, and remains uncorrected in that state, at the precise time that you access that article.

Search engines rank their pages near the top. While Wikipedia itself does not run ads, they are the most-scraped site on the web. Scrapers need content — any content will do — in order to carry ads from Google and other advertisers. This entire effect is turning Wikipedia into a generator of spam. It is primarily Google's fault, since Wikipedia might find it difficult to address the issue of scraping even if they wanted to. Google doesn't care; their ad money comes right off the top.

Articles in Wikipedia are supposed to be neutral in tone, and assertions are supposed to be backed up with citations. What's happening is that any collection of citations that appears balanced is all that anybody expects. If the title or snippet in a link itself contributes to this impression, then the full text is not researched by anyone. No one has time for that. Just grab a few catchy snippets from Google and slap them at the end of the Wikipedia article. It's a full-circle dance: garbage in, garbage out, garbage back in. A few cycles of this, and it all turns into a big, stinking heap.

Wikipedia is a potential menace to anyone who values privacy. It needs to be watched closely.

NEW! 9/11: The Ultimate Truth is Now Available!

On the fourth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Laura Knight-Jadczyk announced the availability of her latest book:

In the years since the 9/11 attacks, dozens of books have sought to explore the truth behind the official version of events that day - yet to date, none of these publications has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out.

Taking a broad, millennia-long perspective, Laura Knight-Jadczyk's 9/11: The Ultimate Truth uncovers the true nature of the ruling elite on our planet and presents new and ground-breaking insights into just how the 9/11 attacks played out.

9/11: The Ultimate Truth makes a strong case for the idea that September 11, 2001 marked the moment when our planet entered the final phase of a diabolical plan that has been many, many years in the making. It is a plan developed and nurtured by successive generations of ruthless individuals who relentlessly exploit the negative aspects of basic human nature to entrap humanity as a whole in endless wars and suffering in order to keep us confused and distracted to the reality of the man behind the curtain.

Drawing on historical and genealogical sources, Knight-Jadczyk eloquently links the 9/11 event to the modern-day Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She also cites the clear evidence that our planet undergoes periodic natural cataclysms, a cycle that has arguably brought humanity to the brink of destruction in the present day.

For its no nonsense style in cutting to the core of the issue and its sheer audacity in refusing to be swayed or distracted by the morass of disinformation that has been employed by the Powers that Be to cover their tracks, 9/11: The Ultimate Truth can rightly claim to be THE definitive book on 9/11 - and what that fateful day's true implications are for the future of mankind.
