Sunday  9/12/2004

Kerry Hints GOP May Suppress Black Votes  9/12/2004 AP: "We are not going to stand by and allow acts of voter suppression, and we're hearing those things again in this election." Kerry has a team of lawyers to examine possible voting problems to try to prevent a repeat of the 2000 election disputes. He also has said he has thousands of lawyers around the country prepared to monitor the polls on election day. "What they did in Florida in 2000, some say they may be planning to do this year in battleground states all across this country," Kerry said. "Well, we are here to let them know that we will fight tooth and nail to make sure that this time, every vote is counted and every vote counts." "

Kerry challenges Bush on Iraq-9/11 connection  9/12/2004 CNN 

Colin Powell in four-letter neo-con 'crazies' row  9/12/2004 Guardian: "Provocatively, the phrase 'fucking crazies' will be quoted on the jacket of the book, according to a source at the publisher. 'We were surprised to receive calls from the offices of Jack Straw and Colin Powell within 24 hours of each other,' the source said."

'Why I turned against America'  9/12/2004 Mail & guardian, SA: Black soldiers are a particular target. 'To have Negroes occupying us is a particular humiliation,' Abu Mujahed said, echoing the profound racism prevalent in much of the Middle East. 'Sometimes we aborted a mission because there were no Negroes.'

Bush family history shows a dark past unseen by most  9/12/2004 News Miner, AK: "In 1951, following Thyssen's death in Argentina, the U.S. alien property custodian released the assets of Union Banking Corp. Prescott Bush cashed out his ownership share for $1.5 million. (In 2004 dollars, that's more than $10 million.) He used it to fund a successful U.S. Senate campaign from Connecticut and launch his son, the president's father, in the oil business. Other American companies that armed Hitler included General Motors, Standard Oil and Chase Bank. All were quietly sanctioned after Pearl Harbor; then government files were lost or forgotten. For 60 years, the full record of Prescott Bush's complicity in the Nazi war machine has been ignored or denied by participants and the U.S. media. But no more. Documents relating to the seizures were recently uncovered in the National Archives and the Library of Congress. Confirmed by Dutch government sources, they show that Bush shipped tons of strategic resources to the Third Reich as Hitler prepared to invade Poland."


Saturday  9/11/2004

topVenezuela Objects to American Sanctions  9/11/2004 AP: "According to a July report by the U.S. State Department, Venezuelan women and children are trafficked inside the country and abroad to Spain and to mines in neighboring Guyana. Brazilian and Colombian women also are trafficked through the country. "It is a fact, not only that the information is not well-documented, but that it doesn't help the bilateral relations to reach the levels that should be," Izarra said."

topTime to consider Iraq withdrawal  9/10/2004 Financial Times, UK 

White House Draws Fire From Congress, Officials Over Leak of FBI Probe - Wexler: Community 'Broadbrushed'  9/10/2004 Forward: "Massachusetts Democrat Barney Frank said that the investigation "does appear to be an effort to discredit, to get Aipac." He said: "I'm troubled by it. It's a very inappropriate effort to criminalize a policy debate. It's John Ashcroft, and the president and [Vice President Dick] Cheney." Also voicing criticism were the two Jewish Republican senators, Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and Norm Coleman of Minnesota. Specter told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that Ashcroft should launch an investigation into the leaks. "I know Aipac; I know its integrity," he said. "It's a smear." Coleman said that "the real issue here is preventing leaks — of classified materials and about ongoing investigations." The Minnesota senator argued that "to leak details about an ongoing FBI investigation and the alleged role of Aipac is premature at best and a smear campaign at worst." "

SEPTEMBER 11: WHAT YOU "OUGHT NOT TO KNOW" DOCUMENT 199-I AND THE FBI'S WORDS TO CHILL THE SOUL  9/10/2004 Greg Palast 


Wednesday  9/8/2004

topSpy-scandal lobby blitz - AIPAC secures wide backing after secrets charges  9/8/2004 The Hill: "But Rep. John Conyers (Mich.), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, gave an indication of how the FBI probe might be politicized on Capitol Hill. In a letter to Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), chairman of the committee, Conyers asked for a formal congressional investigation. “It now appears that these allegations may be only the tip of the iceberg of a broader effort of the Pentagon employees working in the office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, Douglas Feith, to conduct unauthorized covert activities, without the knowledge of the Central Intelligence Agency,” Conyers wrote. Republicans, however, cautioned that Democrats would suffer political consequences if they sought to demonize or slur AIPAC, especially in conjunction with the Iraq war."


Tuesday  9/7/2004

topTreason in high places: Pentagon zionists, AIPAC and Israel  9/7/2004 Rebelion: knowledgeable discussion of the following topic - "The FBI investigation into Israeli espionage agents in the Pentagon is part of a major struggle between prominent Zionists in the Pentagon and the US security apparatus. Ever since the Bush regime came to power there has been a fierce political and organizational war between the Pentagon Zionists and their militarist collaborators, on the one hand, and the professional military and intelligence apparatus, on the other."


Monday  9/6/2004

topFour Day War - The Iran/Israel conflagration, a history.  9/6/2004 American Conservative: "In his campaign stops, President Bush keeps reiterating that the world is a safer place because of his actions. Yet looking at the state of world affairs it is very difficult to agree with him. The dead-ended Mideast peace talks, Saudi Arabia’s internal turmoil, continuing Islamist terrorist threats, the vulnerability of American troops in Iraq, and the question of Iran’s nukes all contribute to maintaining tensions at an all-time high. Barring a solid and lasting peace settlement between Israel and its Arab neighbors, the countries of the Middle East are far from nuclear disarmament. If anything, nuclear proliferation is only likely to increase as states like Saudi Arabia find that they, too, need to defend themselves against a nuclear-armed Iran. Recent reports have indicated that Saudi Arabia is looking to lease Pakistan’s nukes. The arms race of the Cold War may be dead, but the race for hot weapons has never been so alive."

Unlikely Terrorism Suspect Faces Harsh Israeli Penalty  9/6/2004 LA Times: "At first, both were somewhat hostile but eventually warmed and began having substantive discussions about the conflict, associates of both said. Zubeidi has denied that the two are romantically linked. And he has declared repeatedly and publicly that Israel is pursuing a vendetta against any citizen who seeks meaningful contact with Palestinians. The military order for Fahima's remand to administrative detention, which carries no bail, must be confirmed today by a district court judge in Tel Aviv. Her lawyers promise to take the case to Israel's Supreme Court if their bid to overturn it is denied. "It shows what can happen to any citizen who tries to have a personal impact on our situation," said Ben-Natan, the lawyer. "This is what you risk.""

China will send troops to Haiti  9/6/2004 Washington Times 

"There is one safeguard known generally to the wise, which is an advantage and security to all, but especially to Democracies as against despots: suspicion." -- Demosthenes
