According to US defence law financing foreign militaries can be cut off if that country is found to have committed human rights abuses.

"The American public should be shocked that we are still killing and crippling thousands of innocent people in these countries as well as our own soldiers -- that's what's truly obscene," said Mike Ferner,59 who served as a navy corpsman during Vietnam. "Blowing people's arms and legs off, burning, paralyzing them, causing sewage to run through their streets, polluting the water that kills and sickens children, terrorizing and bombing people and their livestock with flying robots-- that defines obscenity.

"Up to this moment, I still do not understand why the United States government is deaf to what has been done to my son, an American citizen. I urge the U.S. government to act to defend the rights of my son. I also would like to know why the U.S. voted against the Gaza Flotilla Report of the UN Fact Finding Mission at the Human Rights Council last week, as that report included information about the execution of my son, " said Dogan.

A Pakistani-born American has been arrested for carrying out surveillance on the Washington DC metro as part of a suspected terror plot. Farooqe Ahmed is accused of working with people he believed were members of Al-Qaeda - but who were actually FBI agents. A U.S. counter-terrorism official said there's no indication Ahmed was ever in touch with real militants. And as RT's Marina Portnaya found out, critics say the FBI is increasingly using tactics that amount to entrapment...
(OTTMAR EDENHOFER, UN IPCC OFFICIAL): That will change immediately if global emission rights are distributed. If this happens, on a per capita basis, then Africa will be the big winner, and huge amounts of money will flow there. This will have enormous implications for development policy. And it will raise the question if these countries can deal responsibly with so much money at all.
On a les victoires qu’on peut : Michèle Alliot-Marie a, il y a quelques mois, par une simple circulaire, commis un attentat juridique d’une rare violence contre l’un des moyens les plus anciens et les plus efficaces de la contestation des Etats par les sociétés civiles, à savoir le boycott. Le 12 février, la Chancellerie a eu cette idée extraordinaire selon laquelle tout appel au boycott des produits d’un pays n’était qu’une «provocation publique à la discrimination envers une nation», punie d’un an d’emprisonnement et de 45 000 euros d’amende.
Atmospheric physicist, MIT Professor of Meteorology and former IPCC lead author Richard S. Lindzen joins us to discuss the state of the climate change debate, the lack of evidence for catastrophic warming and what the science really tells us.
Socialement ambitieux, ou économiquement suicidaire selon les avis, la réforme prévoit la nationalisation des retraites, la fermeture de caisses privées (l'Espagnol BBVA et le Suisse Zurich) qui géraient la retraite de 1,3 million de Boliviens, et l'abaissement de la retraite de 65 à 58 ans.

We are living in bizarre times and as you think it can't get more outrageous, it does.
this situation has the potential to upset current protections of freedom of the press
Who's WikiLeaks? Besides Mr Assange, I don't know, and they're not really telling. Do you know? If so, start a wiki about it.
Beaucoup attendaient ce moment, comme la reconnaissance tardive d'une histoire douloureuse dont les plaies tardent à se refermer. Soixante-dix ans après la Retirada qui vit déferler de notre côté des Pyrénées, un demi-million de réfugiés, les descendants d'exilés peuvent désormais acquérir à leur tour la nationalité de leur pays d'origine. L'Espagne tente ainsi de parachever sa réconciliation historique en honorant la mémoire des opposants à Franco.http://linaangles.eu Manque plus qu'un parasol et je vais m'installer sur la Costa Brava auprès de mes cousins :-)
And let's not forget previous Wiki-leaks 'dumps' of data, which included nuggets of US and Israeli government nonsense like Iraq really did have WMDs! And there you were thinking that the WMD business was a total lie! Well, guess again, thanks to some of the Wiki-leaks documents, we now know that the US was totally justified in invading Iraq and killing 1.5 million innocent civilians. And if that isn't enough for ya, then just remember...9/11!
After Brazil's decision to recognize a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, the President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, confirmed, on Sunday, that she would also recognize an independent Palestine with the same parameters.
Tout cela, savoir si ce que fait WikiLeaks est bien ou mal, ce n'est pas l'affaire de FDN. Chacun d'entre nous a probablement une opinion qui lui est propre, un avis personnel sur le gris moyen, quelque part entre le blanc éclatant du héros moderne ou le noir de charbon de l'ennemi public numéro 1. Mais ce n'est pas l'affaire de FDN. Nous, nous faisons du réseau, simplement du réseau, rien que du réseau.
Remember, I am not arguing here for or against the principle of net neutrality itself, but rather warning about the FCC's imposition of false authority over the internet in the first place. The idea of net neutrality has merits, but granting the FCC the power to control the internet is a disastrously bad idea that will only end in censorship and "information tyranny" -- especially now that governments around the world are witnessing the "dangers" of information freedom via the Wikileaks fiasco.
Ceci illustre bien l'air du temps
A former health insurance insider turned whistleblower says that he was not only surprised at how “easy” it was to manipulate members of the news media over the years, but also reveals that he routinely “wined and dined” reporters from major news outlets – including the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal – in return for favorable coverage.

By Khalid Amayreh on wikileaks in occupied Palestine A few weeks ago, a supposedly religious activist, probably from one of the Gulf States, suggested to me that Muslims shouldn’t confine our attacks to Zionists; we ought, he said, to attack Jews as Jews, on the grounds that the vast majority of Jews support Israel.

«Not one big success of the Mossad has ever been made public» he says.
"U.S. journalist Mike Ruppert, a former Los Angeles police officer who now runs a Web site that seeks to expose CIA covert operations, said he met with RCMP investigator McDade on Aug. 3 in L.A. Ruppert said the RCMP officer was anxious to see documents he received three years ago from a shadowy Green Beret named Bill Tyre [sic] detailing the sale of rigged Promis software to Canada." - The Toronto Star, September 4, 2000.
Main Core has received attention in two 2008 articles, one a piece by investigative journalist Christopher Ketcham entitled The Last Roundup (which also looks at Continuity of Government programs but more on that in a little while) and Tim Shorrock entitled Exposing Bush’s Historic Abuse of Power. Both articles tie Main Core to the now legendary PROMIS software, an extremely advanced program designed to aid federal prosecutors in case management tracking. PROMIS could pull and put together a wide range of data from disparate sources into a single record.
But in the meantime, there could be a lot of pain from these scandals, obviously. Pain for the guilty. Julian Assangeishhhh
Addressing the leak of classified documents by the WikiLeaks website, the army chief said that the extent of the matter was still unclear but that the Military Intelligence unit was monitoring the matter, which "could affect the dialogue with some people in the future." This teaches us about a new world with many risks, he added.
The piece, and the Global Warmers camp in general, while pretending to be objective skilfully avoid applying sound science and provide no answers to the mounting evidence which refutes the crumbling Global Warmers theory. It puts lipstick on scientific fraud but it remains fraud.

The list of seeds, and later foods, that have already been modified also include alfalfa, tomatoes, chicory, flax, papaya, potato, rice, sugar beets, and squash. The future of our global food supply is laden with seeds, and most recently animals, modified for human consumption. You may be surprised to see what's on the horizon.
I can hardly believe the fact that, apart from the courtroom participants, only Memphis TV reporter Wendell Stacy and I attended from beginning to end this historic three-and-one-half week trial. Because of journalistic neglect scarcely anyone else in this land of ours even knows what went on in it. After critical testimony was given in the trial's second week before an almost empty gallery, Barbara Reis, U.S. correspondent for the Lisbon daily Publico who was there several days, turned to me and said, "Everything in the U.S. is the trial of the century.
