Casinos, not homes, rise after

November 25, 2007, San Francisco
Chronicle/Washington Post

has the rebound from Hurricane Katrina been gaudier than along
Mississippi's casino-studded coast. Even as the storm's debris was being
cleared, Biloxi's night skies were illuminated with the high-wattage
brilliance of the Imperial Palace, then the Isle of Capri, then the Grand
Casino. More followed, and so did vacation-condo developers. Yet in the
wrecked and darkened working-class neighborhoods just blocks from the
waterfront glitter, those lights cast their colorful glare over an
apocalyptic vision of empty lots and scattered trailers that is as
as anywhere in Katrina's strike zone. "At night, you can see the casino
lights up in the sky," Shirley Salik, 72, a former housekeeper at one of
the casinos, said while standing outside her FEMA camper with her two
"But that's another world." More than two years after the storm, the
touted recovery of the Mississippi coast remains a starkly divided
phenomenon. Gov. Haley Barbour, a Republican, has hailed the casino
openings as a harbinger of Mississippi's resurgence, and developers have
proposed more than $1 billion in beachfront condos and hotels for
But fewer than 1 in 10 of the thousands of single-family houses destroyed
in Biloxi are being rebuilt. More than 10,000 displaced families still
in trailers provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Now,
long-standing resentment over the way the state has treated displaced
residents has deepened over a proposal by the Barbour administration to
divert $600 million in federal housing aid to fund an expansion plan at
Port of Gulfport. The port's recently approved master plan calls for ...
creating an "upscale tourist village" with hotel rooms, condos,
and gambling. "We fear that this recent decision ... is part of a
disturbing trend by the governor's office to overlook the needs of lower
and moderate income people in favor of economic development," 24
on the Mississippi coast wrote in September in a letter to state leaders.
State leaders rejected the complaints.

Blame U.S. for 9/11: 'Plots' Thicken in

November 24, 2007, New York

two-thirds of Americans believe the federal government had warnings about
9/11 but decided to ignore them, a national survey found. Sixty-two
of those polled thought it was "very likely" or "somewhat likely" that
federal officials turned a blind eye to specific warnings of the 2001
attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
Only 30 percent
said the 9/11 theory was "not likely," according to the Scripps
University poll. The findings followed a 2006 poll by the same
who found that 36 percent of Americans believe federal government
"either assisted in the 9/11 attacks or took no action" because they
"to go to war in the Middle East." In that poll, 16 percent said the Twin
Towers might have collapsed because of secretly planted explosives - not
hijacked passenger jets flown into them. And what hit the Pentagon?
percent figured it was a US cruise missile. In the latest Scripps
Howard/Ohio University poll, 811 US adults were interviewed Sept. 24 to
Oct. 10. Among [other] findings: 42 percent believe the federal
knew in advance of the plot to assassinate John F. Kennedy, compared with
40 percent who call that theory "not likely." 37 percent believe UFOs
real and that the feds have been hiding the truth about them. Eight out
10 Americans suspect oil companies are conspiring to keep fuel prices
and 50 percent said a conspiracy is "very likely." Only 14 percent felt
was unlikely.

AP Chief Slams Case Against

November 24, 2007, San Francisco
/Associated Press

The U.S.
military is making a mockery of American democratic principles by
a criminal case against an Associated Press photographer in Iraq without
disclosing the charges against him, AP President and CEO Tom Curley said
Saturday. "This is a poor example - and not the first of its kind - of
way our government honors the democratic principles and values it says it
wants to share with the Iraqi people," Curley wrote in an opinion piece
The Washington Post. The U.S. military notified the AP last weekend that
intended to submit a written complaint against Bilal Hussein that would
bring the case into the Iraqi justice system as early as Nov. 29.
officials have refused to disclose the content of the complaint to the
despite repeated requests. Hussein's lawyer will enter the case "blind,"
with no idea of the evidence or charges, Curley wrote. "In the 19 months
since he was picked up, Bilal has not been charged with any crime,
the military has sent out a flurry of ever-changing claims. Every claim
we've checked out has proved to be false, overblown or microscopic in
significance," said Curley. Hussein, a 36-year-old native of Fallujah,
part of the AP's Pulitzer Prize-winning photo team in 2005. He was
in Ramadi on April 12, 2006. "We believe Bilal's crime was taking
photographs the U.S. government did not want its citizens to see. That he
was part of a team of AP photographers who had just won a Pulitzer Prize
for work in Iraq may have made Bilal even more of a marked man," Curley
Curley said the military has refused to answer questions
from Hussein's attorney, former federal prosecutor Paul Gardephe, since
announcing its intentions to seek a case against him. The military has
leaked baseless allegations against Hussein to friendly media outlets,
Curley wrote, but it will not even share the exact date of the hearing
the AP.

Cellphone Tracking Powers on

November 23, 2007, Washington

officials are routinely asking courts to order cellphone companies to
furnish real-time tracking data so they can pinpoint the whereabouts of
drug traffickers, fugitives and other criminal suspects, according to
judges and industry lawyers. In some cases, judges have granted the
requests without requiring the government to demonstrate that there is
probable cause to believe that a crime is taking place or that the
will yield evidence of a crime. Privacy advocates fear such a practice
expose average Americans to a new level of government scrutiny of their
daily lives. The requests and orders are sealed at the government's
request, so it is difficult to know how often the orders are issued or
denied. "Most people don't realize it, but they're carrying a
tracking device in their pocket," said Kevin Bankston of the privacy
advocacy group Electronic Frontier
Foundation. "Cellphones can reveal very precise information about
location, and yet legal protections are very much up in the

In a stinging opinion this month, a federal judge in Texas denied a
by a Drug Enforcement Administration agent for data that would identify a
drug trafficker's phone location by using the carrier's E911 tracking
capability. E911 tracking systems read signals sent to satellites from a
phone's Global Positioning System (GPS) chip or triangulated radio
sent from phones to cell towers. "Law enforcement routinely now requests
carriers to continuously 'ping' wireless devices of suspects to locate
when a call is not being made . . . so law enforcement can triangulate
precise location of a device and [seek] the location of all associates
communicating with a target," wrote Christopher Guttman-McCabe, vice
president of regulatory affairs for CTIA
the Wireless Association.

Proposed Ban on Genetically Modified Corn in

November 23, 2007, New York

European Union environmental officials have determined that two
kinds of genetically modified corn could harm butterflies, affect food
chains and disturb life in rivers and streams, and they have proposed a
on the sale of the seeds, which are made by DuPont Pioneer, Dow
Agrosciences and Syngenta.
The environment commissioner, Stavros
Dimas, contends that the genetically modified corn, or maize could affect
certain butterfly species, specifically the monarch, and other beneficial
insects. For instance, research this year indicates that larvae of the
monarch butterfly exposed to the genetically modified corn “behave
differently than other larvae.” In the decision concerning the corn seeds
produced by Dow and Pioneer, Mr. Dimas calls “potential damage on the
environment irreversible.” In the decision on Syngenta’s corn, he says
“the level of risk generated by the cultivation of this product for the
environment is unacceptable.” Barbara Helfferich, a spokeswoman for Mr.
Dimas ... said that the European Union was within its rights to make
decisions based on the “precautionary principle” even when scientists had
found no definitive evidence proving products can cause harm. “The
commission has the authority to be a risk manager when it comes to the
safety and science of genetically modified crops,” Ms. Helfferich said.
the decisions, Mr. Dimas cited recent research showing that consumption
genetically modified “corn byproducts reduced growth and increased
mortality of nontarget stream insects” and that these insects “are
important prey for aquatic and riparian predators” and that this could
“unexpected ecosystem-scale consequences.”

Dan Ellsberg: Sibel Edmonds case "Far More
Explosive Than Pentagon Papers

November 19, 2007,

Bradblog has been chasing the
story about former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds' offer to 'tell all.'
[Daniel] Ellsberg says: "I'd say what she has is far more
than the Pentagon Papers. From what [Edmonds] has to tell, it has a major
difference from the Pentagon Papers in that it deals directly with
activity and may involve impeachable offenses.
And I don't
necessarily mean the President or the Vice-President, though I wouldn't
surprised if the information reached up that high. But other members of
Executive Branch may be impeached as well. There will be phone calls
out to the media saying 'don't even think of touching [Edmonds' case],
will be prosecuted for violating national security.'" [Edmonds] said:
media called from Japan and France and Belgium and Germany and Canada and
from all over the world. I'm getting contact from all over the world, but
not from here." More Ellsberg: "I am confident that there is conversation
inside the Government as to 'How do we deal with Sibel?' The first line
defense is to ensure that she doesn't get into the media. I think any
outlet that thought of using her materials would go to the government and
they would be told 'don't touch this, it's communications intelligence.'
long as they hold a united front on this, they don't run the risk of
shamed." [Edmonds:] "I will name the name of major publications who know
the story, and have been sitting on it --- almost a year and a half."
"How do you know they have the story?," we asked. "I know they have it
because people from the FBI have come in and given it to them. They've
given them the documents and specific case-numbers on my case."

Though this is not from one of our normal reliable sources, Dan Ellsberg is a
highly respected whistleblower who has received an abundance of major
coverage over the years. As the mainstream media are clearly and
consciously ignoring this story, we felt it deserved to be posted, even
though we don't have a major media source to back it up. For lots more

Here come the thought police
November 19, 2007, Baltimore Sun
(Baltimore's leading newspaper),0,2384977.story

overwhelming bipartisan support, Rep. Jane Harman's "Violent
and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act" passed the House 404-6 late last
month. Swift Senate passage appears certain. Not since the "Patriot Act"
2001 has any bill so threatened our constitutionally guaranteed rights.
Diverse groups vigorously oppose Ms. Harman's effort to stifle dissent.
Unfortunately, the mainstream press and leading presidential candidates
remain silent. Ms. Harman ... thinks it likely that the United States
face a native brand of terrorism in the immediate future and offers a
to deal with ideologically based violence. But her plan is a greater
to us than the threats she fears. Her bill tramples constitutional rights
by creating a commission with sweeping investigative power and a mandate
propose laws prohibiting whatever the commission labels "homegrown
terrorism." The proposed commission is a menace through its power to hold
hearings, take testimony and administer oaths, an authority granted to
individual members of the commission - little Joe McCarthys - who will
the country to hold their own private hearings. Ms. Harman's proposal
includes an absurd attack on the Internet ... and legalizes an insidious
infiltration of targeted organizations. While Ms. Harman denies
that her proposal creates "thought police," it defines "homegrown
terrorism" as "planned" or "threatened" use of force to coerce the
government or the people in the promotion of "political or social
objectives." That means that no force need actually have occurred as long
as the government charges that the individual or group thought about
Any social or economic reform is fair game. The bill defines
"violent radicalization" as promoting an "extremist belief system." But
American governments, state and national, have a long history of
interpreting radical "belief systems" as inevitably leading to violence

"A Blow at the Core of Fourth Amendment

November 28, 2007, New York

Constitution protects individuals against unreasonable searches, but for
this protection to have practical meaning, the courts must enforce it.
week, the Supreme Court let stand a disturbing ruling out of California
that allows law enforcement to barge into people’s homes without a
The case has not prompted much outrage, perhaps because the people whose
privacy is being invaded are welfare recipients, but it is a serious
setback for the privacy rights of all Americans. San Diego County’s
district attorney has a program called Project 100% that is intended to
reduce welfare fraud. Applicants for welfare benefits are visited by law
enforcement agents, who show up unannounced and examine the family’s
including the insides of cabinets and closets. The program does not meet
the standards set out by the Fourth Amendment. For a search to be
reasonable, there generally must be some kind of individualized suspicion
of wrongdoing. These searches are done in the homes of people who have
merely applied for welfare and have done nothing to arouse suspicion. The
United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, based in San
Francisco, rejected a challenge brought by welfare recipients. In ruling
that the program does not violate the Constitution, the majority made the
bizarre assertion that the home visits are not “searches.” It is
fun-house mirrors version of constitutional analysis for a court to say
that government agents are not conducting a search when they show up
unannounced in a person’s home and rifle through her bedroom dresser.
Judge Harry Pregerson, writing for himself and six other Ninth
Circuit judges who voted to reconsider the case, got it right. The
decision upholding Project 100%, Judge Pregerson wrote, “strikes an
unprecedented blow at the core of Fourth Amendment protections.” When the
government is allowed to show up unannounced without a warrant and search
people’s homes, it is bad news for all of us.

Researcher sets saltwater on

November 14, 2007, CNN

winter, inventor John Kanzius was already attempting one seemingly
impossible feat -- building a machine to cure cancer with radio waves --
when his device inadvertently succeeded in another: He made saltwater
fire. TV footage of his bizarre discovery has been burning up the
blogosphere ever since, drawing crackpots and Ph.D.s alike into a raging
debate. Can water burn? And if so, what good can come of it? Some people
gush over the invention's potential for desalinization or cheap energy.
Briny seawater, after all, sloshes over most of the planet's surface, and
harnessing its heat energy could power all sorts of things. Skeptics say
Kanzius's radio generator is sucking up far more energy than it's
making it a carnival trick at best. For now, Kanzius is tuning out the
hubbub. Diagnosed with leukemia in 2002, he began building his radio-wave
blaster the next year, soon after a relapse. If he could seed a person's
cancerous cells with nanoscopic metal particles and blast them with radio
waves, perhaps he could kill off the cancer while sparing healthy tissue.
The saltwater phenomenon happened by accident when an assistant
bombarding a saline-filled test tube with radio waves and bumped the
causing a small flash. Curious, Kanzius struck a match. "The water lit
a propane flame,"
he recalls. "People said, 'It's a crock. Look
for hidden electrodes in the water,' " says Penn State University
scientist Rustum Roy, who visited [Kanzius] in his lab in August after
seeing the feat on Google Video. A demo made Roy a believer. "This is
discovery science in the best tradition," he says. Meanwhile, researchers
at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and the University of Pittsburgh
Medical Center have made progress using Kanzius's technology to fight
cancer in animals. They published their findings last month in the

Nanotubes seen as new weapon in cancer

November 2, 2007, Houston

In what
dying Rick Smalley called the most important application from his Nobel
Prize-winning discovery [of fullerines], Houston researchers are using
[carbon] nanotubes heated by radio waves to kill cancer cells. In a paper
posted online by the journal Cancer, a team at the University of Texas
Anderson Cancer Center and Rice University reported that the technique
destroyed liver cancer tumors in rabbits and caused no side effects. It
thought to hold the same potential for many other cancers. "I don't want
overstate matters — I'm the biggest skeptic in the world — given the
challenges still ahead of us," Dr. Steven Curley, an M.D. Anderson
oncologist and the paper's senior author, said Thursday. "But my hope is
that this will be a very useful tool to safely and efficiently treat a
of types of cancer." The therapy marries two disparate disciplines: the
relatively ancient field of radio waves and nanotechnology, the
cutting-edge science of the ultra-small. The rabbit study found the
worked only when the two were used together. It works not by poisoning
by creating a localized hyperthermia — or small fever — that destroys the
cancer cells' membranes, protein and even DNA. The cells then die and are
carried out of the body through normal kidney functions. In the
recounted in Cancer, the rabbits were injected with a solution of
single-walled carbon nanotubes — hollow cylinders of pure carbon
about a billionth of a meter across — then exposed to two minutes of
radio-frequency treatment. The result, researchers said, was the thermal
destruction of 100 percent of the tumors.
The idea was inspired
John Kanzius, an M.D. Anderson leukemia patient and retired Pennsylvania
radio and television station owner. He developed a radio-frequency
generator after undergoing chemotherapy and noting its effect on himself
and other patients.

Audit Finds Many Faults in Cleveland’s ’06

April 20, 2007, New York

An audit
of last November’s general election in the Cleveland area has found that
hundreds of votes were lost, that others were recorded twice and that
software used to count the ballots was vulnerable to data problems. In a
state that was pivotal to President Bush’s election and re-election,
Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, has seen more than its share
recent election troubles. Lines at polls there were hours long in the
general election. And in the primaries last May, the county’s first
experience with electronic voting, poll workers were absent or poorly
trained, computer cards on which votes had been recorded were lost, and
polling place opened hours late. The audit found that some batches of
ballots registered in optical scan machines had been scanned twice,
producing a double count of those ballots. Other ballots were deleted
because of flawed data and, owing to human error, were not rescanned, the
committee found. The optical scan and touch-screen machines used in the
county were made by Diebold Election Systems Inc. The audit committee
Microsoft’s JET file-sharing database system, which Diebold used, was
to have previously had problems that could result in corruption of the
database. The audit committee was allowed only a limited review
the data collected by Diebold. The panel tried to gain access to the raw
data, but Diebold claimed that the information was proprietary.

Barbara Simons, a ... past president of the Association for Computing
Machinery, said: “There is no excuse for Diebold’s having used such an
insecure and unreliable database. There were far more reliable databases
available over 20 years ago.” The committee called for extensive changes
ensure the integrity of future elections, among them streamlining the
process by eliminating either optical scanner or touch-screen
