Rights chief blasts EU cooperation in renditions

Juneau Empire

09/01/11

Europe s human rights chief launched a blistering attack Thursday on European governments' counterterrorism actions, accusing them of helping the United States commit 'countless' crimes in the past 10 years. The 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks is an occasion to analyze whether the official responses have been proper and effective, said Thomas Hammarberg, the Council of Europe s rights commissioner...

Rick Perry Secret Plan to Save Blue States From the Red States

Robert Reich, Robert Reich's Blog: 'Of all the nonsense Texas Governor Rick Perry spews about states' rights and the tenth amendment, his dumbest is the notion that states should go it alone. 'We have got a great Union,' he said at a Tea Party rally in Austin in April 2009. 'There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that.'

Iraqi Children in US Raid Shot in Head, UN Says

Matthew Schofield, McClatchy Newspapers: 'A US diplomatic cable made public by WikiLeaks provides evidence that U.S. troops executed at least 10 Iraqi civilians, including a woman in her 70s and a 5-month-old infant, then called in an airstrike to destroy the evidence, during a controversial 2006 incident in the central Iraqi town of Ishaqi. The unclassified cable, which was posted on WikiLeaks' website last week, contained questions from a United Nations investigator about the incident, which had angered local Iraqi officials, who demanded some kind of action from their government. U.S. officials denied at the time that anything inappropriate had occurred.'

Keine Truppen nach Libyen

Nicht aus Afrika und schon gar nicht aus Deutschland!

IMI-Standpunkt von Christoph Marischka vom 30.8.2011 http://www.imi-online.de/2011.php?id=2342

Aus dem Text: '? Mit anderen Worten, die Länder, die eine Unterstützung der NATO-Intervention abgelehnt haben, brauchen jetzt nicht glauben, Geschäfte mit den neuen Machthabern machen zu können. Umgekehrt gilt, wer mitbombte, soll auch ausreichend die Ernte einfahren. Auffällig ist, dass dabei Deutschland keine Erwähnung findet, es gilt offensichtlich als Wackelkandidat, der gegenwärtig noch keinem der beiden Lager eindeutig zuzuordnen ist. Zahlreiche deutsche Konzerne sind bereits seit Längerem in Libyen aktiv (etwa die BASF-Tochter Wintershall, die im libyschen Ölgeschäft engagiert ist), sie werden sicher von der Bundesregierung erwarten, für den Fortbestand ihrer Profite Sorge zu tragen. Andere Firmen wittern durch die veränderte Situation Morgenluft und sehen nun Chancen, neu ins dortige Geschäft einsteigen zu können?'

Siehe dazu auch: 'Sie werden es nicht wagen, irgendwelche Verträge zu ändern'

'Der Streit um Libyens Schätze: Italien hat bereits Verträge mit dem libyschen Übergangsrat unterzeichnet. Alle anderen stehen bereit, um sich ihren Anteil zu sichern. Die libysche Bevölkerung und der Rest der Welt plagt derzeit noch die große Frage, wo der ehemalige Revolutionsführer Muammar al-Gaddafi steckt. Unterdessen sind die Führer der Anti-Gaddafi-Allianz schon deutlich weiter. Hinter den Fassaden haben bereits die ersten Verhandlungen begonnen, wie jetzt die reichen Ölvorkommen aufgeteilt werden sollen?'

In America some torturers are too important to be punished

Implicit in Greenwald s commentary is that the Obama administration is responsible for Cheney s continued legitimacy in the debate about torture, as well as the legitimacy of the debate itself. By deciding to repudiate torture while doing everything in its power to protect the torturers, the Obama administration has succeeded in elevating not only Cheney but the idea that, in America, some torturers are too important to be punished...

Shrinking unions eroding middle class

Christian Science Monitor

08/31/11

A continued decline in union membership in the US has led to an erosion of the American middle class, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said Wednesday. As the portion of the population that belongs to a union has declined, 'there has been an erosion of people that have been able to stay in the middle class. The way I see, it is that unions have helped to keep people in the middle class,' Secretary Solis said...

Panel tallies massive waste and fraud in wartime US contracts

CNN

08/31/11

A nonpartisan panel reporting to Congress says the United States is wasting $12 million a day among contracts issued in support of American efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Commission on Wartime Contracting spent the past three years documenting whether American funding went where it was supposed to. The findings show misdirected money has totaled between $31 billion and $60 billion, and that both the government and the contractors are to blame for fraud and waste...

The monetary tsunami is coming

In his speech at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on August 26, 2011, the Fed chairman disappointed most pundits. He did not promise another massive infusion of fake money, i.e., QE3. I suspect that a strengthening in bank lending is an important factor behind the Fed s decision to postpone the pushing of more money into the economy...
