Nuking Iran: The Republican

June 6, 2007, Washington

At the
Republican debate, almost all the candidates said that they would not
out a nuclear attack on Iran as a means to prevent it from getting its
nuclear weapons. Only one [candidate] would say that attacking Iran --
indeed even threatening to nuke Iran -- is not the right strategy. "We
have to come to our senses about this issue of war and preemption," he
said. The audience applauded, but he didn't get much support from his
fellow candidates. Rep. Duncan Hunter of California was the starkest: "I
would authorize the use of tactical nuclear weapons if there was no other
way to preempt those particular centrifuges," he said. Former New York
Mayor Rudolph Giuliani ... added that "you can't rule out anything and
shouldn't take any option off the table." Former Virginia Gov. Jim
also [stated] "all options are on the table" with regard to Iranian
nuclear weapons. Said former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney: "I wouldn't
take any options off the table." After the debate, former Sen. Fred
Thompson of Tennessee, who did not particpate, added his name to the list
of candidates who would consider a preemptive attack against Iran.
Only Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, the "Dennis the Menace" of his
said he opposed a nuclear strike on moral grounds and because he believed

FBI Terror Watch List "Out of

June 13, 2007, ABC News

terrorist watch list compiled by the FBI has apparently swelled to
more than half a million names. Privacy and civil liberties advocates say
the list is growing uncontrollably, threatening its usefulness in the war
on terror. The bureau says the number of names on its terrorist watch
is classified. A portion of the FBI's unclassified 2008 budget request
posted to the Department of Justice Web site, however, refers to "the
entire watch list of 509,000 names." A spokesman for the interagency
National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), which maintains the government's
list of all suspected terrorists with links to international
organizations, said they had 465,000 names covering 350,000 individuals.
Many names are different versions of the same identity. In addition to
NCTC list, the FBI keeps a list of U.S. persons who are believed to be
domestic terrorists - abortion clinic bombers, for example, or
environmental extremists, who have no known tie to an international
terrorist group. Combined, the NCTC and FBI compendia comprise the watch
list used by federal security screening personnel on the lookout for
terrorists. While the NCTC has made no secret of its terrorist tally, the
FBI has consistently declined to tell the public how many names are on
list. "It grows seemingly without control or limitation," said ACLU
legislative counsel Tim Sparapani of the terrorism watch list.
Sparapani called the 509,000 figure "stunning. If we have 509,000
names on that list, the watch list is virtually useless," he told ABC
News. "You'll be capturing innocent individuals with no connection to
crime or terror."
U.S. lawmakers and their spouses have been
detained because their names were on the watch list.

Diagnosis: Conflict of Interest

June 13, 2007, New York

revelation that the diabetes drug Avandia can potentially cause heart
disease is the latest in a string of pharmaceutical disappointments.
was pulled from the market in 2004 because it doubled the risks for heart
attacks and strokes. Eli Lilly recently paid $750 million to settle
lawsuits alleging that Zyprexa causes diabetes. Many have criticized the
Food and Drug Administration as being too lax about monitoring drug
safety. While those criticisms have merit, there is another culprit: the
transformation of continuing medical education into an enterprise for
marketing. The chore of teaching doctors how to practice medicine
has been handed to the pharmaceutical industry. As a result, dangerous
side effects are rarely on the curriculum.
Most states require
that doctors obtain a minimum number of credit hours of continuing
education each year to maintain their medical licenses. Not so long ago,
most of these courses were produced and paid for by universities and
medical associations. But this has changed drastically over the past
decade. Drug-industry financing of continuing medical education has
quadrupled since 1998, from $302 million to $1.12 billion. Half of all
continuing medical education courses in the United States are now paid
by drug companies, up from a third a decade ago. Because pharmaceutical
companies now set much of the agenda for what doctors learn about drugs,
crucial information about potential drug dangers is played down, to the
detriment of patient care. For example, GlaxoSmithKline footed the bill
for dozens of educational courses intended to emphasize the benefits of
Avandia over other drugs.

Fight Over Vaccine-Autism Link Hits Court

June 10, 2007, Washington

For more
than a decade, families across the country have been warring with the
medical establishment over their claims that routine childhood vaccines
are responsible for the nation's apparent epidemic of autism. In an
extraordinary proceeding that begins tomorrow, the battle will move from
the ivory tower to the courts. Nearly 5,000 families will seek to
a special "vaccine court" in Washington that the vaccines can cause
and outgoing children to withdraw into uncommunicative, autistic shells
even though a large body of evidence and expert opinion has found no
The court has never heard a case of such magnitude. The shift from
laboratory to courtroom means the outcome will hinge not on scientific
standards of evidence but on a legal standard of plausibility. The
decision could not only change the lives of thousands of American
but also have a profound effect on the decisions of parents around the
world about whether to vaccinate their children. Advocates of the
theory have argued that the increase in cases was triggered by a
mercury-based preservative in vaccines that, they say, is toxic to
children's brains. The law requires people claiming they were harmed by a
vaccine to bring the case in the special court first, but if they lose,
they can still file suit in civil courts. Scientific advocates for the
vaccine-autism theory ... say fears about damaging public health
programs have prompted scientists and the government to hide evidence of
problem. Many of the families believe that the medical establishment and
the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have conspired in a
massive coverup.

In Iraq's four-year looting frenzy, the allies
have become the vandals

June 8, 2007, The Guardian (one of
the U.K.'s leading newspapers),,2098275,00.html

Fly into
the American air base of Tallil outside Nasiriya in central Iraq and the
flight path is over the great ziggurat of Ur, reputedly the earliest city
on earth. Ur is safe within the base compound. But its walls are
pockmarked with wartime shrapnel and a blockhouse is being built over an
adjacent archaeological site. When the head of Iraq's supposedly
board of antiquities and heritage, Abbas al-Hussaini, tried to inspect
site recently, the Americans refused him access to his own most important
monument. Under Saddam you were likely to be tortured and shot if you let
someone steal an antiquity; in today's Iraq you are likely to be tortured
and shot if you don't. The tragic fate of the national museum in Baghdad
in April 2003 was as if federal troops had invaded New York city, sacked
the police and told the criminal community that the Metropolitan was at
their disposal. The local tank commander was told specifically
to protect the museum for a full two weeks after the invasion. Even the
Nazis protected the Louvre.

is being rendered archaeologically barren. Outside the capital some
sites of incomparable importance to the history of western civilisation,
barely 20% yet excavated, are being looted as systematically as was the
museum in 2003. When [archeologists] tried to remove vulnerable carvings
from the ancient city of Umma to Baghdad, [they] found gangs of looters
already in place with bulldozers, dump trucks and AK47s.

I blame myself for our downfall in

June 6, 2007, The Telegraph (one
the U.K.'s leading newspapers)

A former
American army torturer has laid bare the traumatic effects of American
interrogation techniques in Iraq - on their victims and on the
perpetrators themselves. Tony Lagouranis conducted mock executions,
men and boys into agonising stress positions, kept suspects awake for
on end, used dogs to terrify detainees and subjected others to
But he confesses that he was deeply scarred by the realisation that what
did has contributed to the downfall of American forces in Iraq. Mr
Lagouranis, 37, suffered nightmares and anxiety attacks on his return to
Chicago. Between January 2004 and January 2005, he tortured
suspects, most of whom he says turned out to be innocent. He says that he
realised he had entered a moral dungeon when he found himself reading a
Holocaust memoir, hoping to pick up torture tips from the Nazis.
"When I first got back I had a lot of anxiety. I had a personal
crisis because I felt I had done immoral things and I didn't see a way to
cope with that. I saw a psychologist. I had a lot to work through." He
says that helped prevent him becoming "a totally broken human being". Mr
Lagouranis has written a recently published book about his experiences,
Up Harsh, a term for intimidating a detainee by shouting at him. He
makes clear that torture has cost America its moral authority in Iraq by
detaining innocent people and treating them badly. He writes: "My
combined with the actions of the arresting infantry who left bruises on
their prisoners, and the actions of the officers who wanted to get
promotions, repeated in microcosm all over this country, had a cumulative
effect. I could blame Bush and Rumsfeld, but I would always have to also
blame myself."

US college rejects Jewish professor over
anti-Israel stance

June 11, 2007, The Guardian (one
the U.K.'s leading newspapers),,2100590,00.html

One of
the most rancorous disputes in American academia has ended with a
prominent political scientist ... being denied tenure at one of the
country's top-10 private universities. Norman Finkelstein, author of The
Holocaust Industry, [is a professor at] the political sciences
department of DePaul University in Chicago. Mr Finkelstein has argued in
his books that claims of anti-semitism are used to dampen down criticism
of Israeli policy towards the Palestinians and that the Holocaust is
exploited by some Jewish institutions for their own gain. His outspoken
position as a Jewish intellectual critical of Israel and of some elites
within the Jewish community has prompted passionate debate. Prominent
intellectuals such as [Noam Chomsky] have spoken out in Mr Finkelstein's
favour, but others have decried him.
His most bitter opponent is Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor,
campaigned heavily to prevent tenure being granted. Soon after Mr
Finkelstein applied for it, Mr Dershowitz sent DePaul faculty members a
dossier of what he categorised as the "most egregious academic sins,
outright lies, misquotations, and distortions" of the political
The dispute has roots that go deeper still, with Mr Finkelstein devoting
much of his most recent book, Beyond
Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of
to an attack on Mr Dershowitz's own work. Mr Finkelstein, the
of Holocaust survivors, has responded to the decision ... by condemning
the vote as an act of political aggression. "I met the standards of
DePaul required, but it wasn't enough to overcome the political
to my speaking out on the Israel-Palestine conflict."

USDA may relax standards for organic

June 9, 2007, Los Angeles



drinkers may not know that Anheuser-Busch has the organic blessing from

federal regulators even though Wild Hop Lager uses hops grown with

chemical fertilizers and sprayed with pesticides. The [USDA] is

considering a list of 38 nonorganic ingredients that will be permitted in

organic foods. Because of the broad uses of these ingredients — as

colorings and flavorings, for example — almost any type of manufactured

organic food could be affected, including cereal, sausage, bread and


Organic food advocates have fought to block approval of some or all of


proposed ingredients, saying consumers would be misled. "This
proposal is blatant catering to powerful industry players who want the
benefits of labeling their products 'USDA organic' without doing the work
to source organic materials,"
said Ronnie Cummins, executive

director of the Organic Consumers Assn. of Finland, Minn., a nonprofit

group that boasts 850,000 members. With big companies entering what was

formerly a mom-and-pop industry, new questions have arisen about what

exactly goes into organic food. Many nonorganic ingredients, including

hops, are already being used in organic products, thanks to a USDA

interpretation of the Organic Foods Protection Act of 1990. In addition


hops, the list includes 19 food colorings, two starches, casings for

sausages and hot dogs, fish oil, chipotle chili pepper, gelatin and a


of obscure ingredients (one, for instance, is a "bulking agent" and

sweetener with the tongue-twisting name of fructooligosaccharides). Under

the agency's proposal, as much as 5% of a food product could be made with

these ingredients and still get the "USDA organic" seal.

Farewell, wires? Power beamed through

June 7, 2007, MSNBC


cables and even batteries might become a thing of the past using a new

technique that can transmit power wirelessly. Scientists lit a 60-watt

light bulb from a power source 7 feet (2 meters) away with their new

technique, with no physical connection between the source and the

appliance. The researchers have dubbed their concept "WiTricity," as in

"wireless electricity." MIT physicist Marin Soljacic began thinking years

ago about how to transmit power wirelessly so his cell phone could

recharge without ever being plugged in. Scientists have pursued wireless

power transmission for years — notably, eccentric genius Nikola Tesla,


devoted much energy toward it roughly a century ago. Soljacic and his

colleagues devised WiTricity based off the notion of resonance. One

well-known example of resonance can be seen when an opera singer hits the

right note to cause a champagne glass to resonate and shatter.

objects resonating at the same frequency tend to exchange energy
efficiently, while interacting weakly with objects not resonating at the
same frequency. Instead of sound, the MIT physicists focused on magnetic
Most common materials interact only very weakly with

magnetic fields, so little power would get wasted on unintended targets.

In their latest work, the scientists designed two copper coils roughly 20

inches (50 centimeters) in diameter that were specially designed to

resonate together. One was attached to the power source, the other to a

light bulb. The practical demonstration of their earlier theoretical work

managed to power the light bulb even when obstacles blocked direct line


sight between the source and device.

World's First Air-Powered Car: Zero Emissions
Next Summer

June, 2007, Popular


largest automaker is set to start producing the world’s first commercial

air-powered vehicle. The Air Car, developed by ex-Formula One engineer


Nègre for Luxembourg-based MDI, uses compressed air, as opposed to the

gas-and-oxygen explosions of internal-combustion models, to push its

engine’s pistons. Some 6000 zero-emissions Air Cars are scheduled to hit

Indian streets in August of 2008. Barring any last-minute design changes

on the way to production, the Air Car should be surprisingly practical.

The $12,700 CityCAT, one of a handful of planned Air Car models, can hit

68 mph and has a range of 125 miles. It will take only a few minutes for

the CityCAT to refuel at gas stations equipped with custom air compressor

units; MDI says it should cost around $2 to fill the car’s carbon-fiber

tanks with 340 liters of air at 4350 psi. Drivers also will be able to

plug into the electrical grid and use the car’s built-in compressor to

refill the tanks in about 4 hours. Of course, the Air Car will likely

never hit American shores, especially considering its all-glue

construction. But that doesn’t mean the major automakers can write it off

as a bizarre Indian experiment — MDI has signed deals to bring its design

to 12 more countries, including Germany, Israel and South Africa.

'The Future of Food'

September 30, 2005, San Francisco
(San Francisco's leading newspaper)


insiders may already know the disturbing facts highlighted by this film,

but the general public is in for a shock at how corporations are using

misleading campaigns -- and scare tactics -- to ensure that people around

the world become dependent on genetically modified food. Monsanto and

other corporate behemoths are motivated (not surprisingly) by profits,

according to farmers, academics and others who talk to documentarian

Deborah Koons Garcia. Canadian farmer Percy Schmeiser was targeted by

Monsanto's lawyers because some of the corporation's patented seedlings

were found on his property. Schmeiser didn't plant them there; wind blew

the insecticide-resistant seeds onto his farm from another farm, or the

seeds fell off a passing truck. Monsanto didn't care, ordering Schmeiser

to kill all his family's seed because they'd potentially been


by its patented product. Schmeiser ... fought Monsanto, spending his

retirement money against the sort of legal attack that has already scared

farmers throughout North America. Incredibly, a judge ruled in favor of

Monsanto. Garcia's documentary shows how much the U.S. federal government

favors these corporations, especially through lax oversight (the [FDA]


the Department of Agriculture seem to rubber-stamp every corporate


having to do with genetically modified food). In the past 20 years,

Monsanto's alumni have occupied the high reaches of American
power. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, for example, did legal work
for the corporation, while Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was
president of a Monsanto subsidiary.

UK 'sells' bomb material to Iran

September 23, 2002, BBC

British officials have approved the export of key components
needed to make nuclear weapons to Iran and other countries known to be
developing such weapons.
An investigation by BBC Radio 4

programme File on Four will disclose that the Department of Trade and

Industry allowed a quantity of the metal, Beryllium, to be sold to Iran

last year. That metal is needed to make nuclear bombs. Britain has had an

arms embargo to Iran since 1993 and has signed up to an international

protocol which bans the sale of Beryllium to named countries, including

Iran. Beryllium is a metal with a limited number of high-tech uses in

civilian industry, but is mostly used in defence applications and is a

vital component in a nuclear bomb. The programme has also interviewed a

leading nuclear weapons expert in the UK who says that the Beryllium and

other items which the DTI has licensed to Iran add up to a shopping list

for a nuclear weapons programme. The UK has an arms embargo against Iran,

but not a trade embargo. The programme highlights the weaknesses in the

UK's new export control system, which was set up to stop the


of nuclear weapons. Iranian procurement agents have been working in the


to get sensitive material back to Iran, and that Pakistan has also been

successful in procuring material for its nuclear programme from here.

Group Calls for Disclosure of UFO

May 10, 2001, ABC News

A group

of about 20 former government workers, many of them military and security

officials ... stepped forward on Wednesday to say they had witnessed

evidence of aliens and unidentified flying objects and called for

congressional hearings about such sightings. "These testimonies establish

once and for all that we are not alone," said Steven Greer, director of

the Disclosure Project, a nonprofit research organization dedicated to

disclosing alleged alien sightings. Greer, who organized the program at

the National Press Club in Washington, argued that the United States and

other governments have known about UFOs for at least 50 years and have

been keeping the information secret. Greer said there were some
400 witnesses who claim to have firsthand experience with UFO sightings
alien evidence, and are willing to testify before Congress. Among them is
Daniel Sheehan, a well-known Washington lawyer who is acting as counsel
for members of Greer's group.
Sheehan told reporters that during

the Carter administration he found out about government-held UFO

information that then-CIA Director George Bush, father of the current

president, would not release. Sheehan said he was then led into the

National Archives, where he was shown photographs of captured UFOs,

complete with what appeared to be alien writing symbols. Former Air Force

Maj. George Filer III told reporters that when he was at McGuire Air


Base in New Jersey, an alien craft came down, and an alien got out and


shot by a military policeman. "Our security police went out there and

found him at the end of the runway dead," Filer said.
