Army lied about how my son died in Iraq: Friendly-fire victim was 'misidentified' as enemy gunman

For four months after the Army knew the truth, it still insisted to Sharrett's father that he was killed by enemy fire - and gave only atemporary wrist slap to Hanson under pressure from the families of Sharrett and two other G.I.s killed in the clash.

After The News uncovered new video evidence and raised questions, a 101st Airborne Division general said the probe into Sharrett's death may reopen.

Aircraft could be brought down by DIY 'E-bombs'

Yael Shahar, director of the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism in Herzliya, Israel, and her colleagues have analysed electromagnetic weapons in development or used by military forces worldwide, and have discovered that there is low-cost equipment available online that can act in similar ways. "These will become more of a threat as the electromagnetic weapons technology matures," she says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"So, you should shut down the internet just to be sure. Except the part we make money on, of course. That should stay. It should be bigger even!"

Israel's Illegal Annexation of East Jerusalem

So says a confidential EU report revealed on March 7 by The London Guardian's Rory McCarthy. It accuses Israel "of using settlement expansion, house demolitions, discriminatory housing policies and the West Bank (Separation) barrier as a way of 'actively pursuing the illegal annexation' of East Jerusalem." More still, including restrictive permits, "closure of Palestinian institutions," and various other ways to "increase Jewish presence in" the city, "impede Palestinian urban development, and separate East Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank" incrementally to annex it.

FNC’s Napolitano Claims Bush Administration Committed ‘Extortion’ Against Banks

“This person runs a bank that’s worth about $250 billion, it has no subprime loans, it has no bad debts, wasn’t involved in credit default swaps,” Napolitano said. “It didn’t need any money. It didn’t ask for the money and didn’t want it. The FDIC with Treasury backing – officials from both the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Treasury said if you don’t take this money, we will conduct a multi-year public audit of you.”

Will Mexico’s drug war lead to tighter gun control laws in U.S.?

On Thursday, U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will be in Mexico City to discuss ways to prevent smuggling weapons into Mexico. Mexican President Felipe Calderon said recently that “it is necessary to reduce the sale of weapons, particularly of high-power weapons, in the United States.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United States government, itself drug corrupted, is clearly siding with Mexico's drug-corrupted government against what is starting to appear to be a massive popular uprising against the drug corruption.

The drug criminals already HAVE guns. It is the PEOPLE who are opposing the drug lords who need weapons.

Top Down

What went wrong at AIG? Since the uproar over the firm's bonuses, it's become fashionable to distinguish between the masters of the universe at AIG Financial Products, the subsidiary that nearly torched the global economy, and the working stiffs at the rest of the company. So compelling is this dichotomy, in fact, that even the AIG basher-in-chief has invoked it. "You've got a company, AIG, which used to be just a regular old insurance company," President Obama explained during his recent "Tonight Show" appearance. "Then they decided--some smart person decided--let's put a hedge fund on top of the insurance company and let's sell these derivative products to banks all around the world."

Budget ‘rider’ would bid ‘Hasta la vista’ to Windows Vista

It could be “Hasta la vista, baby” to state agency purchases of Microsoft’s Windows Vista information technology under a proposed state budget provision.

The “rider” in the proposed two-year, $182.2 billion state budget — expected to be taken up Wednesday by the Texas Senate — would require state agencies to get written approval from the Legislative Budget Board before buying Vista technology related to an operating system, equipment or licenses.

Sen. Juan Hinojosa, D-McAllen, added the provision in committee and said it’s meant to block purchases of the technology, which has been targeted by criticism: “Don’t buy it, because it’s not worth it.”

Report: Chinese Develop Special "Kill Weapon" to Destroy U.S. Aircraft Carriers

With tensions already rising due to the Chinese navy becoming more aggressive in asserting its territorial claims in the South China Sea, the U.S. Navy seems to have yet another reason to be deeply concerned.

After years of conjecture, details have begun to emerge of a "kill weapon" developed by the Chinese to target and destroy U.S. aircraft carriers.

First posted on a Chinese blog viewed as credible by military analysts and then translated by the naval affairs blog Information Dissemination, a recent report provides a description of an anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM) that can strike carriers and other U.S. vessels at a range of 2000km.

So, Reid traveled around America, interviewing patients, doctors, and health insurance executives.

The documentary that resulted – Sick Around America – aired Monday night on PBS.

But even though Reid did the reporting for the film, he was cut out of the film when it aired this week.

And the film didn't present Reid's bottom line for health care reform – don't let health insurance companies profit from selling basic health insurance.

Instead, the film that aired Monday pushed the view that Americans be required to purchase health insurance from for-profit companies.

Needless to say, this psychotic attitude stems from deep-seated convictions that a Jew is a special creature whose life is worth more than the rest of humanity.

Israeli police question FM Lieberman

Israeli police questioned Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman under caution for over seven hours Thursday on suspicion of bribery and money laundering, a police spokesman said.

Ultranationalist Lieberman, who has denied any wrongdoing, became Israel's foreign minister Tuesday. His anti-Arab rhetoric has alarmed Palestinians and Arab leaders in the region.

"Avigdor Lieberman was questioned under caution by police today for seven-and-a-half hours on suspicion of carrying out the following: bribery, money laundering and breach of trust," said the police spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld.

'Israel unlikely to attack Iran this year'

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates told the Financial Times on Wednesday that Israel is unlikely to launch military operations against Iranian nuclear installations this year in a bid to derail the Islamic regime's drive to attain atomic weapons.

"I guess I would say I would be surprised if they did act this year," Gates told the Financial Times.

U.S. signals new era for global economy

On the eve of a global economic summit here, President Obama delivered an unusual warning Wednesday for an American leader: The "voracious" U.S. economy can no longer be the sole engine of global growth.

The statement signaled a recognition of a new economic era with a less dominant U.S. role.

Ohio man asks US to halt deportation in Nazi case

Demjanjuk was sentenced to death in 1988 after being tried and convicted in Israel for war crimes. In 1993, the Israeli Supreme Court determined he was not the notorious Nazi death camp guard Ivan the Terrible at Treblinka in Poland, and he was sent home to Seven Hills in suburban Cleveland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel tried to convict this man and failed, and the fact that they provably had the wrong man called into question every other accusation Israel had made regarding Nazis.

So Israel came back after Demjanjuk again rather than risk the world doubting Israel's claims about the Holocaust. and now they want to try him again, convict him, and this time kill him.

And his crime? Did he actually kill Jews in the camps? No. Did he kill ANYONE in the camps? No.

He fed the dogs.

That's it.

Demjanjuk is accused of being an accessory to whatever supposedly happened at Sobibor because he fed the guard dogs!

And this is why Israel wants to haul him into court a second time, mere weeks after standing there with a straight face insisting that reports by Israel's own soldiers of war crimes committed in Gaza are "merely hearsay."

Israel may well exact their pound of flesh from Demjanjuk, but like operation CAST LEAD, this is going to turn into a public relations disaster.

One of the important, even historic, changes taking place in the United States these days is the slow but steady erosion of the once absolute taboo to speak about the excessive influence of pro-Israeli groups in the United States. Pro-Israeli forces in politics and the mass media can still destroy a public career, especially for a politician, but the stranglehold on discussing this phenomenon is slowly loosening.

Lieberman and Wiping Countries off the face of the Map

The world has had a lot of fun laughing at the pronouncements of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who stands falsely accused of threatening to wipe Israel off the face of the map. But Ahmadinejad has protested that it would be wrong to kill large numbers of civilians.

In contrast, Lieberman has threatened to wipe at least two countries, Egypt and Palestine, off the map. Monstrously, he suggested bombing the Aswan Dam, which would have the effect of murdering all 80 million Egyptians and sweeping them into the Mediterranean in a vast continental African tsunami.

As US arms shipment reaches Israel, President Obama urged to halt further exports

Stock rally recharged

In addition, bank stocks surged Tuesday after the Financial Accounting Standards Board, as expected, decided to ease rules that determine how banks value bad assets, so-called "mark-to-market accounting." This gave a surge to the financial sector, with the KBW Bank (BKX) sector index gaining 4%.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, today's soaring DOW is a bookkeeping trick, not real improvement.

And as the DOW soars while the unemployment figures continue their decline, you need to ask what KIND of people are buying in right now, and clearly these are speculators driving the market rather than long term investors.

The Group of 20 (G20) is making a big show of getting together to come to grips with the global economic crisis. But here's the problem with the upcoming summit in London on April 2: It's all show. What the show masks is a very deep worry and fear among the global elite that it really doesn't know the direction in which the world economy is heading and the measures needed to stabilize it.

The latest statistics are exceeding even the gloomiest projections made earlier. Establishment analysts are beginning to mention the dreaded "D" word and there is a spreading sense that a tidal wave just now gathering momentum will simply overwhelm the trillions of dollars allocated for stimulus spending.

While Senator Joseph McCarthy grabbed headlines with his shouts of "Communist", Hoover set about his self-appointed task of purging Hollywood of any he viewed as "disloyal" to the United States, which meant anyone unwilling to make the movies they were told to make, when and how they were told to make them. Senator McCarthy's screed of "Communist" provided Hoover with a bludgeon he could and did use with impunity on Hollywood's creative talents. Careers were ruined. Some 400 people, mostly innocent of any actual wrongdoing, were destroyed. Some, like Jean Seberg would later do, committed suicide.

Promoting China and Russia once again as ‘threats’ to the US is merely a useful distraction. The threat from China and Russia during the Cold War was grossly exaggerated during that period and both nations are even less a threat today than ever before. The world should not be fooled; the neocons real enemies remain those that oppose Israeli Zionism. Their rhetoric is for a strong America but what is left unsaid is that a strong America means a strong Israel. If the US withdraws into itself to become isolationist again then it will leave Israel exposed.

Texas vote leaves loopholes for teaching creationism

In a move that pleased the scientific community, the board voted to not include proposed changes that would call for the teaching of the "strengths and weaknesses" of scientific theories – code words for allowing creationist views into the classroom.

However, additional amendments that were voted through provide loopholes for creationist teaching. "It's as if they slammed the door shut with strengths and weaknesses, then ran around the house opening windows to let it in a bunch of other ways," says Dan Quinn, who was on site at the hearings.

Petraeus Says Israel Might Choose to Attack Iran

Israel might choose to attack Iran to prevent it from developing a nuclear bomb, the top U.S. commander in the Middle East said today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice how we seem to be getting prepared for a reality that an Israeli strike against Iran is pretty darned inevitable, no matter the usage of language here stating "...Israel might choose to attack Iran...."

Apparently, Petraeus has become yet another of Israel's acquisitions, to be telling these boldfaced lies to congress. I wonder how much that cost - or how he got compromised. Even he understands (or should, if he has any modicum of intelligence, or some science advisers who can break it down for him) that the level to which Iran is enriching its uranium is completely consistent with enrichment for a power plant, not a weapons factory.

There is no doubt that the new Israeli government, led by Benyamin Netanyahu, honestly reflects the collective mindset of the Israeli Jewish Zionist society. True, there are Israelis who are averse to racism and fascism, but these are unfortunately very few in numbers and their influence is almost negligible.

Indeed, a fleeting glance at the composition of the new Israeli cabinet reveals an extremist coalition of war criminals, pathological liars, racist thugs (both of the Hitlerian and Stalinist styles), and hateful religious maniacs who inhale and exhale hatred 24 hours per day.

Global Reboot / Who Wins

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and

they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, ALWAYS."

Urban non-renewal in Flint, Michigan

Here's a novel idea: Shut down neighbourhoods filled with abandoned homes and businesses, cut off services and bulldoze what's left.

It's no more than an off-the-cuff remark by the "temporary mayor" of Flint, Michigan, ground zero for post-industrial decay in the crumbling home of the auto industry.

But why not?

Is Missile Defense Obsolete?

To be fair, the truth is that we are defenseless against ballistic missiles. If a nuclear ballistic missile were launched against the United States, we would have no choice but to wait for it to detonate. But that truth needs to be put in context. First, only two other countries currently possess ballistic missiles with sufficient range and armed with nuclear warheads to reach the United States: Russia and China. But Russia is not the foe that the former Soviet Union was. Although the U.S.

The black box that tracks every mile you drive and will make speed cameras obsolete

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... and tell the government where you are and where you have been down to the inch!

And that is the real goal, of course, because if taxing you for driving were the agenda, then the current taxes on gasoline and tires, or an odometer tax applied when you re-register your car, suffice for that.

No, the only reason to spend this huge amount of money for these tracking boxes is to TRACK you.

Unmasking the Fed

It's called the Federal Reserve Bank, but it's neither "federal" nor a "reserve" nor a "bank."

In actuality it's a privately owned entity that has monopolistic control over the US money supply.

Rammed down the throat of Congress during the WW I era (the same period that gave us personal income tax, the draft, and the Pentagon), the reality of the Federal Reserve has been one of the best kept secrets in America.

Until now.

Subprime Swindlers Reconnect to Homeowners in Scams

She said her firm, Freedom Financial Solutions, could pressure lenders to stop foreclosures by challenging the legality of loan agreements, according to court records. Her fee: $2,500 upfront and a $2,000 monthly payment to cover legal costs. Promoting her services on the Web site Craigslist, Montero, a blond-haired, blue-eyed woman who looked like a soccer mom, became known as a foreclosure escape artist.

“All the real estate agents knew about her classes,” says Kay Trail, a realtor in Antioch. “She was one shrewd sister.”

ADL slams archbishop who said more Catholics than Jews died in Holocaust

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has
condemned the words of a Brazilian Catholic Archbishop who suggested in a magazine interview that "more Catholics than Jews have died in the Holocaust, but this is usually not told because Jews own the world's propaganda."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In July 1990 the Auschwitz State Museum in Poland, along with Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust Center, reduced the estimated number of victims at Auschwitz from the four million figure engraved on the plaques down to just over 1 million. That is a reduction of almost 3 million.

Yet the claimed 6 million figure, claimed to include the Auschwitz numbers, was never revised downward. At that moment, any claims to knowing the numbers of victims are discredited.

Indeed, over the years, estimates of the total number of victims who died (of all causes) in the slave labor camps have run from 8 million during the Nuremberg trials, down to 140,000 calculated from the camp records of the International Red Cross, down to as low as 74,000 by more recent scholars.

The only thing that can be deduced from the wide variance is that we do not really know how many died (of all causes) in those slave labor camps.

But we do know lies are being told. Camp inmates were not made into soap and lampshades. There was no Camp Walszak despite Hoess's coerced confession. There was no electrical machine that simply vaporized corpses to leave no trace. And ground penetrating radar shows that there are no mass graves at Treblinka.

That being said, the Catholics too have secrets to hide about WW2. Google the word "Ustashi" some time.
