"Our extensive research in Iraq suggests that this is not an isolated
incident. It is not enough for the USA to react only once images have hit
the television screens". Amnesty International has received frequent reports
of torture or other ill-treatment by Coalition Forces during the past year.

The pictures showed US troops smiling, posing ,laughing or giving the thumbs- opsign as naked male Iraqi prisoners were stacked in a pyramid or positioned to simulat esex act swit one another. jpg
Brits also abuse prisoners: showed male Iraqis apparently forced into sexual positions by their British captors. In another a prisoner was suspended by rope from a fork-lift truck driven by a laughing Brit. ANOTHER picture showed a pair of white legs and the head of a male Iraqi. The hand of a man behind the Iraqi's head appeared to be forcing him to perform oral sex. The prisoner, aged 18-20, begged for mercy as he was battered with rifle butts and batons in the head and groin, was kicked, stamped and urinated on, and had a gun forced in his mouth. The Ministry of Defence launched an immediate investigation into the circumstances surrounding the photographs, in which a prisoner appears to be battered with rifle butts, threatened with execution and urinated on by his captors." The soldiers told the newspaper that the unnamed captive - against whom no charges were brought - was driven away and dumped from the back of a moving vehicle following the ordeal.

The Chinese, who launched their first astronaut into space last year, are "shocked" the United States has not welcomed them into the tight-knit community of space-faring nations. FULL STORY The Chinese went so far as to build a docking ring onto their Shenzhou spacecraft that would allow it to park at the $95 billion International Space Station, said Johnson-Freese.

Tonight, ABC's Nightline is doing something beautiful and courageous. The entire show will consist of a reading of the names of each soldier who has fallen in Iraq, while his or her photograph shows on the screen. But ABC affiliate stations around the country will be prohibited from airing the special. That's because they're owned by Sinclair Broadcasting Group, a company whose executives have given tens of thousands to Republicans and whose right-wing allies tout it as "the next Fox." [1] In a statement released earlier this week, the company said that to honor the men and women who died in this way would be a political act that is "contrary to the public interest." Censoring images of the fallen serves the right-wing ideologues who pushed the war in Iraq, but it certainly doesn't serve our country to hide those who were killed. In order to highlight this censorship and let other media outlets know that it's not OK, we're asking you to write a letter to the editor of your local paper. It doesn't actually take very long -- you can do it in ten minutes or less. We've added some tips and talking points below. Once you've written, please let us know at: http://www.moveon.org/sinclair.html?id=2761-3593602-kMIPqOAEB8_VJykx6Ooq2w Military families have called on Sinclair to air the special tonight. Jane Bright of Military Families Speak Out is the mother of Sgt. Evan Ashcraft, who died July 24, 2003, near Mosul, Iraq. She said: "The Sinclair Broadcast
Group is trying to undermine the lives of our soldiers killed in Iraq. By censoring Nightline they want to hide the toll the war on Iraq is having on thousands of soldiers and their families, like mine." [2] According to ABC News, "The Nightline broadcast is an expression of respect which simply seeks to honor those who have laid down their lives for this country." Yet Sinclair refuses to distinguish between public mourning and a statement against the
war: "Despite the denials by a spokeswoman for the show the action appears to be motivated by a political agenda designed to undermine the efforts of the United States in Iraq." [3] Take a few minutes to write a letter to the
editor to make sure the word gets out. Tips and talking points are below. Nightline is also certain to get lots of nasty right-wing hate mail about this broadcast. Show them the overwhelming support for this sort of recognition
of the young men and women killed in Iraq with a quick note at: http://www.moveon.org/r?494 Finally, you can call on Sinclair to honor our troops and run the Nightline special at: David D. Smith, CEO Sinclair Broadcast Group (410) 568-1500
x1504 After you take action, let us know at: http://www.moveon.org/sinclair.html?id=2761-3593602-kMIPqOAEB8_VJykx6Ooq2w Then tune in to ABC tonight to see Nightline's special tribute to our lost servicemen and women. RESOURCES FOR LETTERS TO THE EDITOR I. Tips II. Talking Points I. Tips on how to get your letter published: - Your own words, written from the heart, are always best. - Brevity is the soul of wit. - The key to publication is to pounce on something specific you've seen in the newspaper -- anything that seems related to you. - Be sure to include your name and address, and especially your phone number when submitting your letter. Editors need to call you to verify authorship before they can print your letter. They don't print your phone number. - Your newspaper's letters page should give you an email address or fax number to use, or you can try this website: http://congress.org/congressorg/dbq/media/
- Please let us know when you've sent your letter by going to:

II. Talking points * According to the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics, Sinclair executives gave $136,000 to Republicans and the Bush administration since 2000. It's clear that their partisan bias is outweighing their responsibility to the public. * Sinclair is essentially saying that any public recognition of the fallen soldiers is a political act against the war in Iraq. That trivializes the sacrifices these men and women made for us. Honoring the dead is not a partisan act. * In a news environment often focused on celebrity and pop culture, Nightline's willingness to take time out of their usual schedule to pay tribute to the dead is a great service. Civic-minded journalism like this should be encouraged, not censored.

In Into the buzzsaw
: leading journalists expose the myth of a free press / edited by Kristina Borjesson ; foreword by Gore Vidal. Essays about the dangerous state of
American journalism today, the contributors reveal the awesome depth and
breadth of censorship in America today.

It's been written countless times that the press is our nation's last line of defense for keeping our leaders honest and our government democratic. This book proves how the "Free Press" is not. Essays here are by ace investigative journalists who have had their stories crushed by economic or political pressure from the power elite.

"If members of the general public read this book, or even portions of it, they will be appalled. To the uninitiated reader, the accounts of what goes on behind the scenes at major news organizations are shocking." -- Publishers Weekly

In Fallujah, attempts to mount joint US-Iraqi patrols to enforce truce abandoned Tuesday. US Marines withdrew from two houses held at city outskirts after 18 hours of heavy guerrilla missile-mortar pounding from city center.

Overnight, US Marines and helicopter gunships struck positions and roadblocks set up by radical Shiite Sadr’s Mehdy Army at entrance of Najef and al Kufa, leaving scores dead and anti-aircraft system destroyed.

DEBKAfile reports: Bush administration secretly designates Sunni former major general Abdullah Shehwani Iraq’s next strongman supported by newly-appointed mixed Sunni-Kurdish-Shiite military command


Before Black Saturday descended on Iraq on April 24, President
George W. Bush had expected to quickly squash the various elements of the Iraqi insurgency and their spring offensive and was banking heavily on a decisive autumn offensive to stamp them out just before the presidential election.

On Saturday, however, not an hour went by without rockets, exploding cars, mortar fire or roadside bombs spreading havoc across Iraq, leaving at least 10 US troops and 35 Iraqis dead, many more injured and a trail of rage.






Treasury Plays Partisan Politics with Tax Dollars


CauseNET for April 26, 2004

In an April 9 Treasury Department press release reminding citizens to file their income taxes, the agency included the following sentence:

"America has a choice. It can continue to grow the economy and create new jobs as the President's policies are doing; or it can raise taxes on American families and small businesses, hurting economic recovery and future job creation."

Clearly the implication is that if you don't vote for President Bush, your taxes will go up. Language identical to that in the Treasury Department notice shows up on the White House and Republican National Committee (RNC) websites.

ACT NOW!
http://causenet.commoncause.org/afr/mail/oneclick_compose/?alertid=5669511

In March, the Treasury Department had civil servants, using your tax dollars, evaluate a tax proposal very similar to that proposed by Presidential candidate, Senator John Kerry (D-MA). The department then posted the results on the Treasury website. On the day the results were posted, the RNC used the exact same numbers on its own website to attack Sen. Kerry?s tax plan.

Politics? Treasury officials defended their action, saying it was "proper" to analyze Kerry's tax plan, and that they were not using "political language" in their press release. But treasury officials who worked for the Reagan Administration disagree , stating that treasury
employees "are supposed to be objective? and that the analysis of the Kerry plan "stepped over the line."

People are starting to ask if the Treasury Department has become a campaign tool for the upcoming presidential election.


It's outrageous that a federal agency is pushing a partisan political agenda on the public. We depend on federal agencies to be objective and unbiased, and they should never become politicized. What's more, government employees shouldn?t be put in the position of having to carry water for a presidential campaign.

TAKE aCTION: Please join us in calling on the Inspector General of the Department of Treasury, Jeffrey Rush, Jr., to investigate these incidents.

Iraqi 'beaten to death' by US troops


April 14, 2004 The Australian

AN Iraqi has died of his wounds after US troops beat him with truncheons because
he refused to remove a picture of wanted Shiite Muslim leader Moqtada Sadr
from his car, police said today.


The outrage of Fallujah : US Marines outside Fallujah were saying on Tuesday
that they expect a bloody battle for the city soon. They talked freely of
"leveling" the city of 200,000. Lance Cpl. Ryan Christiansen, 25, from the
Chicago suburb of Huntley, speaking of people in Fallujah, told a Newsday
reporter: "I really don't care; they're all gonna die."


IMO the military is running amok.



The powerful nation on the planet

also has its stupidest government. It is also scary to think that the one
thing that Bush and Bin Laden have in common is that they both believe they
have a direct line to the almighty.


If you want America blessed then pray that god puts Bush into his political
grave in November, then we will all feel truly blessed.

Condi Rice is so smart she should have listened to herself:


"The lesson, too, is that if it is worth fighting for, you had better
be prepared to win. Also, there must be a political game plan that will
permit the withdrawal of our forces - something that is still completely
absent in Kosovo. The military is not a civilian police force.

It is not a political referee. And it is most certainly not designed to
build a civilian society. Using the American armed forces as the world's
"911" will degrade capabilities, bog soldiers down in peacekeeping roles,
and fuel concern among other great powers that the United States has decided
to enforce notions of "limited sovereignty" worldwide in the name of humanitarianism."



--Condi Rice, lecturing the world on quagmires in January
2000




April 22 The Bush administration's plans for a new caretaker
government in Iraq would place severe limits on its sovereignty, including

December should be a time for making new laws," Mr. Grossman said.

My Question, Suggestion or Compliments...

COMPLAINT
? WHY you HIDE new Political books upstairs? Second time I’ve found a book upstairs that should be downstairs in the “New Book Section.”

About a month ago: a book with No Red Dot and was shelved upstairs although listed as a new . On that day, I asked the librarian upstairs and at the check out why, and got a “I don’t know” from both of them.

324.97309 Sa Slate's field guide to the candidates 2004 / William Saletan and the staff of Slate.com.

Today I was upstairs and saw a book that Has Red Dot and listed as new
323.445 In Into the buzzsaw : leading journalists expose the myth of a free press / edited by Kristina Borjesson ; foreword by Gore Vidal.


QUESTION
? Is this a systemic problem because it’s an election year and HSL Main Library is NeoCon? A form of literary suppression from a library?

P.S. Found other books listed as new on the other HSL’s but not at Main Library.

303.33 Pa The Soft Cage, the surveillance in America

Iran-Contra criminal resurfaces as new Ambassador to Iraq


As U.S. ambassador to Honduras
from 1981 to 1985, John Negroponte oversaw the supply mission for
U.S.-trained "Contra" terrorists, based in Honduras, who waged war
against the people and government of Nicaragua. Part of that campaign
involved ensuring that the regime in Honduras received hundreds of
millions of dollars in U.S. military and economic aid, despite its
dismal human-rights record. Thus, when
Battalion 316
, a CIA-trained body of the Honduran army, slaughtered hundreds of alleged dissidents and kidnapped and tortured hundreds of others, Mr. Negroponte turned a blind eye.



Greater Middle East: the US plan


THE Bush administration justified the invasion of Iraq on three pretexts. The first was the war on terror declared after 11 September 2001. Against all the evidence, Saddam Hussein was presented in the United States as an accomplice, if not a sponsor, of Osama bin Laden. The second argument was the threat of weapons of mass destruction. We now know that the information the US and the United Kingdom provided about this subject was untruthful. As the first two faded, a third grew in importance: Washington promised to make Iraq so attractive a democratic model that it would set an example to the entire Middle East.

Flag-draped coffins are shown inside a cargo plane April
7 at Kuwait International Airport, in a photograph published Sunday. The photographer
said she hoped the image would help families understand the care with which
fallen soldiers are returned home.


Her photograph, taken earlier this month, shows more than 20 flag-draped
coffins in a cargo plane about to depart from Kuwait. Since 1991, the Pentagon

The PURPOSE for the build up of World Wars was to create a NEED for PEACE
so that a UNITED NATIONS may be needed and then created as a SOLUTION for
establishing peace between nations. A WORLD body of GOVERNMENT with a WORLD
COURT and a WORLD POLICE to keep nations in place and to concentrate power
into a few people's hands. Who's hands? William Howard Taft, Skull and Bones
graduate of 1878, helped found the American Society for the Judicial Settlement
of International Disputes in 1920. This soon became the League to Enforce
the Peace, then the League of Nations and then finally The United Nations.
