Justice Execution-Style  6/28/03 Jihad Unspun: "The weapons searches that had British soldiers storming houses in the middle of the night, handcuffing woman and children, mockingly held up a woman's underwear and male soldiers frisking females are considered more than minor offenses to the local Muslim population. Allegations of the use of sniffer dogs further added to the hostility."

Occupation Forces Halt Elections Throughout Iraq  6/28/03 Washington Post: "U.S. military commanders have ordered a halt to local elections and self-rule in provincial cities and towns across Iraq, choosing instead to install their own handpicked mayors and administrators, many of whom are former Iraqi military leaders. The decision to deny Iraqis a direct role in selecting municipal governments is creating anger and resentment among aspiring leaders and ordinary citizens, who say the U.S.-led occupation forces are not making good on their promise to bring greater freedom and democracy to a country dominated for three decades by Saddam Hussein."

The station also aired a video it said it received from the group, showing parts of a Baghdad neighborhood and what the announcer said was an attack by the group against American military vehicles. The announcer said a wing of the group called the Martyr Khattab Brigade claimed responsibility for the attack shown in the video. The group's statement did not say when the operation took place or whether there were any casualties."

topHugo Chavez Is Crazy!  6/25/03 Alternet: By Greg Palast - "Look at the Chronicle/AP photo of the anti-Chavez marchers in Venezuela. Note their color. White. And not just any white. A creamy rich white. I interviewed them and recorded in this order: a banker in high heels and push-up bra; an oil industry executive (same outfit); and a plantation owner who rode to Caracas in a silver Jaguar. And the color of the pro-Chavez marchers? Dark brown. Brown and round as cola nuts – just like their hero, their President Chavez. They wore an unvarying uniform of jeans and T-shirts."

No Senior Iraqis Killed in Convoy Attack  6/24/03 Washington Post: "Myers said U.S. forces attacked the convoy in two parts - on a highway and in an unspecified compound. "I'm confident we had very good intelligence" about the convoy, he said. Rumsfeld would not discuss that intelligence. "There were reasons, good reasons to believe that the vehicles that were violating the curfew that existed in that area were doing it for reasons other than normal commerce," he said without elaborating." - in other words, Rummy assassinated a group of smugglers.

Poll: Majority Backs Use of Force in Iran  6/24/03 Washington Post: "President Bush last week said the rest of the world should join the United States in declaring that it "will not tolerate" nuclear weapons in Iran -- a vow that most Americans appear willing to back with force. By 56 percent to 38 percent, the public endorsed the use of the military to block Iran from developing nuclear arms… Two in three -- 67 percent -- of those interviewed said they approve of the way Bush is dealing with Iraq. That's still a strong majority but down from 75 percent in late April, at the end of the conflict. Nearly as many -- 64 percent -- said the benefits of the war outweighed its cost, a drop from 70 percent in the late April survey. Seven in 10 said they were concerned that the United States would become involved in a long and costly peacekeeping mission in Iraq, a figure unchanged in recent months. The survey also suggests that the fog of war extended far beyond the Iraq battlefield. About one in four Americans incorrectly believes Iraq used chemical or biological weapons against U.S. forces during the conflict. Slightly more than six in 10 said Iraq had not, while the remainder weren't sure."
