The Reign of Ashcroft
For more than a year now I have been following John Ashcroft's war on defense attorneys. He fired the first shot across the bow at Lynne Stewart, the New York City attorney who was court-appointed to represent Sheikh Abdel Rahman. Two weeks ago, a federal judge threw out the terrorism counts lodged against her (for representing her client's interests), and a hearing on her motion to dismiss the remaining charges comes up on August 26.
An attorney representing one of the Alexandria 11 defendants told me that the prosecutors are trying to get him disqualified for conflict of interest involving his client and another defendant. A claim of conflict belongs to the client, not the prosecutors. What interest do they have in who defends? Ah, but the Ashcroft prosecutors do. They see their case is in trouble and strike out like a snake, rattling at anything in its path.
Maybe the Lynne Stewart ruling took a little wind out of ole John's sails. Or maybe he has been out in the Washington, D.C. August humidity too long. But now he is after federal judges. [...]
The Constitution, defense attorneys, judges, and juries. What is next on Ashcroft's list? He thinks that God had him lose the Missouri Senate race to a dead man so that he could rewrite the Constitution after 9/11. Not content with his subversion of the Bill of Rights, he now wants to take away the Constitutional perogatives of federal judges and gut Article III of the Constitution.
Let us pray for an end to his reign.
Comment: And while you're at it, how about praying for a political end for Bush, Rumsfeld, Powell, Wolfowitz, etc. Actually, instead of just praying, how about actually doing something about the Bush Reich? Whatever happened to "Land of the Free, Home of the Brave?"

New Attacks Wound 4 U.S. Troops in
BAGHDAD, Iraq - U.S. troops came under renewed attacks Saturday that wounded at least four soldiers, and a team of FBI investigators prepared to take control of the probe into the car bombing of the Jordanian Embassy.
Soldiers from the 173rd Airborne Brigade on patrol in the northern city of Kirkuk were fired on with a rocket-propelled grenade and small arms early Saturday, said Lt. Col. Bill McDonald, spokesman for the 4th Infantry Division operating in the area. [...]
ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Terrorism suspect Zacarias Moussaoui was part of a conspiracy to fly an airliner into the White House, a prosecutor alleged in a transcript released Friday, raising the possibility of other would-be hijackers.
While previous court documents said Moussaoui spoke of plans to crash a plane into the White House, it was unclear how he could do so without help if the 19 hijackers involved in the Sept. 11 attack were committed to four other airplanes.
"It was going to involve others," Karas said at a Jan. 30 court hearing, without further elaboration. "The fact that he didn't know the precise whereabouts or even if we can assume he didn't know the names of the people doesn't mean he doesn't know the objects of the conspiracy." [...]

The mothers of the eight Russians held with other prisoners from Afghanistan at the US military base at Guantanamo Bay have begged Washington not to extradite their sons to answer terror charges in Russia, fearing that conditions in their jails and judicial system are even worse than those at Camp Delta.
"In Guantanamo they treat him humanely and the conditions are fine," Amina Khasanova, the mother of Andrei Bakhitov, told the newspaper Gazeta. "I am terribly scared for my son in a Russian prison or court system."
She said her son wrote to her that conditions were so good in Camp Delta in Cuba that "there is no health resort in Russia that can compare". Camp Delta has been criticised by human rights groups for the "torturous" conditions under which inmates are held awaiting trial by a special military tribunal.
They are held in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day, and occasionally subjected to "sensory deprivation techniques" involving goggles, gloves and mufflers which impede their senses. Lights are left on in cells during the night.
There have been 28 suicide attempts among the 612 prisoners at the facility. Russian jails, where inmates may be held 20 to a cell, tuberculosis is rampant and hygiene minimal, have been condemned as "deadly".
Comment: The young Russian is "fine" he says, and he wants for nothing but freedom. Just because the Russian prison system might be a hell hole by comparison doesn't change the fact that Guantanamo is an inhumane fascist detention camp. Nor does it displace the idea that maybe the Russian prisoners are treated differently in order to use them as tools of propagada.
The tactics practiced against prisoners at Guantanamo amount to psychological torture, brainwashing, and mental programming. Farm animals are treated better and enjoy more rights than prisoners at Guantanamo.
Secret Talks With Iranian Sources: Meetings
Washington - Pentagon hardliners pressing for regime change in Iran have held secret and unauthorized meetings in Paris with a controversial arms dealer who was a major figure in the Iran-contra scandal, according to administration officials.
The officials said at least two Pentagon officials working for Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith have held "several" meetings with Manucher Ghorbanifar, the Iranian middleman in U.S. arms-for-hostage shipments to Iran in the mid-1980s.
The administration officials who disclosed the secret meetings to Newsday said the talks with Ghorbanifar were not authorized by the White House and appeared to be aimed at undercutting current sensitive back channel negotiations with the Iranian regime.
"They [the Pentagon officials] were talking to him [Ghorbanifar] about stuff which they weren't officially authorized to do," said a senior administration official. "It was only accidentally that certain parts of our government learned about it."
The official would not identify those "parts" of the government, but a former intelligence official confirmed they are the State Department, the CIA and the White House, itself.
The senior official and another administration source who confirmed that the meetings had taken place said that the ultimate policy objective of Feith and a group of neo-conservatives civilians inside the Pentagon is regime change in Iran. [...]

ANNISTON, Ala. - The Army plans to start destroying Cold War-era chemical weapons Saturday at its incinerator near Anniston, the first time the military has burned the deadly munitions near a populated area.
The timetable to start destroying the chemical weapons came Friday after a judge in Washington rejected motions by opponents to delay it. The incinerator will begin operations Saturday morning unless weather or other factors cause a delay, incinerator spokesman Mike Abrams said.
The Army plans only "limited burns" on weekends and between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. on weekdays until certain schools and other community buildings near the incinerator are provided with safety pressurization this fall. [...]

Flight 93 families question FBI
Families of passengers who rebelled against hijackers aboard United Airlines Flight 93 said today the FBI theory that the terrorists deliberately crashed the plane into a Pennsylvania field was based on ”limited and questionable interpretations” of the cockpit recording.
The theory – described by FBI director Robert Mueller and disclosed deep within a congressional report on the September 11 attacks – suggests insurgent passengers may not have successfully fought their way into the cockpit and grappled to seize the plane’s controls, as has been popularly perceived.
“Without a doubt, the passengers breached the cockpit,” said Randall Greene of New York, whose brother Donald, a pilot of smaller aircraft, was on board. “I’m surprised by the theory attributed to the FBI director that the passengers did not take control of the aircraft.”
In a joint statement by Families of Flight 93, relatives said they believed the passenger revolt was primarily responsible for the crash. US officials have said they believe the hijackers intended to fly the Boeing 757 into the White House.
Comment: Another "bait and switch" ploy by the government. The families of those that died, desperately want to believe that their loved ones made a brave last stand, that they died with honor, that it was they that essentially foiled the hijackers mission.
This emotional setup by the government ensures that the truth remains buried, which is nevertheless still very surprising given the glaring fact that the parts of the fuselage of the plane were found up to 8 miles from the actual impact site, strongly suggesting that the plane broke up while still high in the air.
Not only that, but there were also several eyewitnesses that reported the appearance of a fighter jet, and their evidence seems to be corroborated by a report of "a signal exhibiting the seismic signature characteristic of a passing sonic boom", recorded at 9:22 A.M. local time by an earthquake monitoring station in southern Pennsylvania and you get the picture..
Report appeared in the UK Mirror
Susan Mcelwain, 51, who lives two miles from the site, knows what she saw - the white plane rocketed directly over her head. "It came right over me, I reckon just 40 or 50ft above my mini-van," she recalled. "It was so low I ducked instinctively. It was travelling real fast, but hardly made any sound. "Then it disappeared behind some trees. A few seconds later I heard this great explosion and saw this fireball rise up over the trees, so I figured the jet had crashed. The ground really shook.
So I dialled 911 and told them what happened. "I'd heard nothing about the other attacks and it was only when I got home and saw the TV that I realised it wasn't the white jet, but Flight 93. Ididn't think much more about it until the authorities started to say there had been no other plane. The plane I saw was heading right to the point where Flight 93 crashed and must have been there at the very moment it came down.

virtually on top of me. It was white with no markings but it was

Official Suggests Bush Administration Should Face War Crimes
Tribunal For Misleading World About Iraq
Air Force Lt Col Karen Kwiatkowski is a former a senior Pentagon Middle East specialist who worked in the office of Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith until her retirement in April of this year.
This is what she has to say: “What I saw was aberrant, pervasive and contrary to good order and discipline. If one is seeking the answers to why peculiar bits of 'intelligence' found sanctity in a presidential speech, or why the post-Saddam occupation has been distinguished by confusion and false steps, one need look no further than the process inside the Office of the Secretary of Defense."
Comment: In the interest of chronology, perhaps we should start with prosecutions for 9/11, then we can move on to Enron, Afghanistan and the Iraq invasions, to name but a few.
Julian Borger, Washington
The FBI may launch an inquiry into whether the White House revealed the identity of a covert CIA official to punish her husband for blowing the whistle on President Bush for making misleading claims about the Iraqi nuclear programme, officials in Washington said yesterday.
Mr Wilson had been sent to Niger in 2002 by the CIA to investigate claims of attempted uranium purchases there, and reported back that they were "highly doubtful". Despite his report, President Bush said in his State of the Union address in January: "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."
Mr Wilson said: "We spend billions of dollars on intelligence. But we end up putting something in the State of the Union address, something we got from another intelligence agency, something we cannot independently verify, in an area of Africa where the British have no on-the-ground presence."
After Mr Wilson blew the whistle, the White House admitted the mistake but alleged that his report had never reached senior administration officials - a claim Mr Wilson said was false.
A week after Mr Wilson went public, a conservative journalist, Bob Novak, published an article in which he wrote: "Wilson never worked for the CIA, but his wife, Valerie Plame, is an agency operative on weapons of mass destruction. Two senior administration officials told me Wilson's wife suggested sending him to Niger to investigate."
The report was controversial because it is against the law to reveal the identities of covert officials. If Ms Plame was investigating WMD deals, her cover would have been blown and her career ruined. Mr Wilson will not confirm or deny whether his wife is a CIA operative, but said yesterday: "Assuming it was true, the real victim in all this is American national security. Novak asserted that not only is my wife in the CIA but active in the WMD section. So senior administration officials have decided to take that particular asset out of the search for WMD in order to punish me."
The administration has denied giving Novak any names, but Mr Wilson said he had been contacted by other reporters who had both been told about his wife by White House officials.
Comment: So if Bush and Co. did not lie, then why this attack on Wilson? Again, the evidence is before our eyes, in "glorious technicolor", yet many still cannot see, or rather, at this stage, the truth is that they REFUSE to see.
August 7, 2003 — George W. Bush has long held the attitude that he (and only those who favor his actions, particularly his war in Iraq) is the epitome of patriotism. But in late July, Dubya took it one step further; he appointed himself the father of patriotism and our country.
Despite the bravery and undying efforts of our Founding Fathers and all the men and women who courageously fought to free America from oppressive British rule, giving birth to a United States that would be forever governed by, for, and of the people, these noble men and women never placed themselves above our flag, or what it ultimately represents.
With unbelievable boldness, Bush took it upon himself to autograph U.S. flags that were handed to him by employees of Beaver Aerospace and Defense, during his late July visit to Livonia, Michigan.
[...] According to US Code, Title 4, Chapter 1, Sec. 8 (g),
titled "Respect for flag": "The flag should never have placed upon
it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia,
letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any
Regardless of the absence of laws prohibiting desecration of the flag, Bush's deplorable actions went underreported. Particularly silent have been the vocal proponents of a constitutional amendment to give government the authority to render desecration of the U.S. flag a criminal offense that could carry penalties under the law.
Comment: We find the symbolism of this interesting. Bush is above the law, the constitution, and he himself is now the embodiment of all things American.
We need total airline security and we need it
Here is one of the links to a currently popular “news” item: FBI warns of common items hiding weapons
WASHINGTON (AP) — From belt buckles to keys to a deadly deck of cards, the FBI is warning security personnel about dozens of everyday items that can conceal knives or other weapons terrorists could use to hijack an airliner.
items cost less than $20 and can be difficult to detect using
airport screening devices, according to an FBI statement
accompanying the 89-page catalog obtained Wednesday by The
Associated Press. ...
This is just further evidence as to how responsible and law-abiding regular people are forced to endure ever greater humiliation, harassment, and disgust. Okay, if this is all in the name of the war on terrorism, the safety of Americans, and all that, maybe the FBI, other government organizations, and the airlines should take additional precautions. I mean, come on, we’re talking about the fight of good versus evil, no less!
Why limit scrutiny to common, everyday items, such as walking canes, belts, and credit cards? If they really want us all to be safe, many more articles must be inspected, confiscated, destroyed, thrown out, or the like. For example, an innocent looking T-shirt can quickly be raised to cover the head, in a manner that the potential perpetrator can see out the neck hole while covering the face. A long sleeve shirt can be removed to easily provide a length of material which can be utilized to choke an unsuspecting victim.[...]
So, for the safety of all concerned, maybe the appropriate authorities should have us board the airplane naked, then have clothes issued on the plane. [...]
But even all this is not enough. A finger can poke an eye, a hand can throw a slap or a punch, an elbow can elbow someone, a leg can kick, and even a head can head-butt. Solution? Surgically remove all limbs from all those to gain access to an airplane, in addition to fitting all passengers with head restraints.
But, even that might not be enough. A person could still have thoughts that are not approved, or give a dirty look to someone, thus making them a potential threat. Solution? A special government-approved lobotomy which removes all threatening thoughts, yet allows all that board planes to still be able to work at their jobs and consume, consume, consume

HOUSTON - Seeing the thing that brought down the space shuttle Columbia filled Jon Salton with sadness.
His sister, Laurel Clark, was one of the seven astronauts who died when the shuttle shattered on its return to Earth more than six months ago. He viewed the video of the impact test in July that showed a chunk of foam insulation knocking a giant hole in shuttle wing parts.
"It's hard to watch that," he said. "It's utterly obvious now that type of impact could cause an orbiter to break apart. "It didn't make me angry. It just made me sad."
Comment: Someone really did a "bang up" job on whitewashing the whole Columbia crash, Nasa knew that the slight problem of the foam, posed no threat whatsoever to the shuttle on re-entry.
Yet again we see the formidable power of federal government to bury the truth.
February 2, 2003
Q: One of the first questions we want to ask
tonight is about the event of the Space Shuttle that was lost.
First, was it an explosion, or was it just disintegration, or
Q: A direct hit by what?
Q: (S) What was the source of the EM pulse?
Q: Well, I thought Bush was a puppet of the
Consortium? (A) Well, we know that the military are scrambling
planes to go after UFOs…there are even reports of firing on
them and there have been reports of military jets being
disintegrated by UFOs. The UFOs are, somehow, in cahoots with the
consortium. It seems that Bush and the gang are not in control of
the Consortium and maybe they needed to be "reminded?"
Q: (L) You once before said that Bush knows very
little anyway - or that the "White House" level is pretty much in
the dark about the plans of the Consortium - even if they are
carrying them out. So, you are suggesting that they are being
driven by forces of which they are unaware and do not
Okay, you say that an EM pulse brought down the
shuttle. (A) Where did the EM pulse come from?
Q: (A) Does NASA know about the cause?
Q: (L) Which explains why they are so anxious to convince everyone that it was NOT sabotage. Like Wellstone's death, there was "no question" about it being a terrorist attack. The likelihood is that the Bush Junta was behind Wellstone's death. In both cases they "know" the cause and want to divert the attention away from it. But, in the case of the shuttle, they aren't "dirty," but they most definitely do NOT want anyone to realize that they also are not "in charge."
It makes me think of the remark the C's made a few years ago about the reason for the Military Industrial Complex build-up and manipulations. C's said that the REAL enemy is "out there" and that war was just a "cover" to prevent the masses from realizing what they were really doing.
Maybe Bush and the gang are really convinced, in
their own minds, that they are acting to "protect" humanity from
this threat. Meanwhile, they are simply being driven to fulfill the
agenda of the Consortium. And it is so interesting that the shuttle
broke up over Palestine, Texas… as though it was saying to
Bush: this is what is going to happen to you: Palestine is going to
be your destruction. But, of course, Bush would be incapable of
perceiving it in that context. Is it so that a message was intended
in this event?
Q: (L) In other words, everyone's reaction to the
event will depend on their own context. There is the view that it
was a "message to Bush." Bush and gang will, of course, see it only
as a stimulus to faster and more "decisive" military action. So, it
will really work on them the way it is wanted. (A) And of course,
we wonder how they will make use of this event.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (Dow Jones/AP) Unocal Corp.'s profit surged 55 percent in the second quarter amid an 18 percent rise in revenue and higher natural-gas prices.
The producer of natural gas and crude oil Tuesday reported net income of $177 million, or 68 cents a share, compared with net income of $114 million, or 46 cents a share, a year earlier.
Excluding items, earnings from discontinued operations and cumulative effects of accounting changes, Unocal said it had earnings of $191 million, or 73 cents a share -- at the high end of its April projection for earnings of 65 cents to 75 cents a share.

Notice that recent rise in prices at the gas pump?
Fuel prices have risen over the last two weeks, and analysts warn that the increase may be an early signal that prices of gasoline and heating oil could stay higher than usual through the end of the year, in large part because of chronically low stockpiles of crude oil and petroleum products in the United States.
Iraq may be among the most important of a host of factors keeping inventories low and prices high.
