'Drops of alien in my hair'

In the summer of 2001, a blood-colored rain fell across India. If that wasn't spooky enough, now some scientists think that the red ooze may in fact be alien life.

The astounding claim was made in the April issue of the prestigious peer-reviewed journal Astrophysics and Space Science, in a paper authored by solid-state physicist Godfrey Louis, of Mahatma Gandhi University. Louis analyzed some samples of the red rain, and was amazed to find strange, thick-walled, red-tinted cell-like structures mixed with the water.

But what makes Louis think that these structures could be alien? In his analysis, he found that the particles lack DNA, but still seem to reproduce plentifully - even when heated to 600˚F. The known upper limit for life in water is about 250˚F, and life on Earth is generally thought to require DNA to reproduce.

Louis thinks the particles could be extraterrestrial bacteria that hitched a ride on a comet or meteorite, breaking apart in the upper atmosphere and mixing w…

Onward, Christian soldiers

After months of hype, a new Christian video game recently made its debut at a video game expo in Los Angeles.

"Left Behind: Eternal Forces" lets users choose between fighting on the side of the Lord or the Antichrist. Soldiers run through the smoldering streets of an apocalyptic New York City and gain points for executing non-believers.

Astonishingly enough, some people seem to have a problem with a violent video game that acts as a natural conduit for religious bigotry.

Jack Thompson, an author and conservative Christian critic of video game violence, said about the game: "Because of the Christian context, somehow it's OK? It's not OK. The context is irrelevant. It's a mass-killing game."

Jerry Jenkins, the co-author of the popular "Left Behind" book series the game is based on, defended the new product.

In developing the game, he said, "We forbade any gratuitous gore," according to the KRT New Service.

The "Left Behind" book se…

Keanu Reeves Slams Police State As Scanner Lights Up Cannes

Keanu Reeves has slammed the modern day police state and surveillance society, a centerpiece of the upcoming film in which he stars, during promotion for A Scanner Darkly at the Cannes film festival.

In A Scanner Darkly, the government, corporations and the elite conspire together to keep free thinking, free expression, freedom itself on the outside-- to facilitate a perceptive wall confining individuality itself to a realm doomed to the fringes.

The film chronicles how power interests exploit the drug war in order to create unthinking armies of drone servants and erect police state measures to prevent the people from ever glimpsing the dark truth behind a highly mechanized surveillance panopticon.

-So it's kinda like, this is your life, for the United States?

Faux News Channel

The Federal Communications Commission is investigating dozens of television stations for broadcasting items produced by the Bush administration and major corporations as normal, 'real' news.

Fake news segments being examined include items which talked up the illegal Iraq war, and supported the criminals who started it.

The FCC is acting on a report by the non-profit Center for Media and Democracy (CMD), which found that over a 10-month period at least 77 television stations acted as corporate and government shills, by broadcasting the sneaky propaganda (known in the business as Video News Releases - VNRs) as 'real' news, without informing viewers of its origin.

"We know we only had partial access to these VNRs and yet we found 77 stations using them," said CMD's Diana Farsetta. "I would say it's pretty extraordinary."

She continued, "The picture we found was much worse than we expected going into the investigation in terms of just how widel…

WMD used in War on Porn

The anti-porn insurgency has reared its ugly head. This weekend, authorities discovered a weapon of mass destruction deployed against a Florida smut peddler.

Some folks in the town of Waldo love porn. Thanks to them the Cafe Risque does a brisk business. But there are darker forces at work in the sleepy little town as well. Protests are not uncommon. On Sunday a chemical weapon strike was launched at the Cafe.

Perched atop the air conditioning unit off the back of the building, police found two gallon jugs - one filled with a lethal chemical agent - connected by hoses. One hose ran to a spigot, the other into the sex emporium itself, via a gap in the AC.

"That water hose would churn it up, mix it up in the gallon jug, and enter it into the building," said Alachua County Sheriff's Sergeant Keith Faulk.

"We haven't identified what was actually in the bottle, in the system that delivered it into the building. We do know that it was caustic, it was corrosive, it had a h…

The new 'dutch treat'

The Dutch are often hailed for their love of liberty. From the hash bars to the Red Light district to gay marriages, folks are largely free to do as they please. It appears they may have gone too far, though, with the formation of a pro-pedophilia political party.

The Charity, Freedom and Diversity (NVD) party has declared that "We are going to shake The Hague awake!" Their primary goal is to have the age of consent for sexual intercourse lowered from 16 to 12.

"A ban just makes children curious," said Ad van den Berg, one of the party's founders.

In 1996, Marc Dutroux of Belgium was sentenced to life in prison for kidnapping, torturing and raping four girls -- ages 8 to 19, four of whom died.

Van den Berg says that ever since then, pedophiles have been unfairly silenced.

"We want to make pedophilia the subject of discussion. We have been hushed up. The only way is through parliament."

Ireen van Engelen has been campaigning against pedophilia for some time …

Sucking on God's protein

The Antichrist must surely be shaking in his boots right now with the revelation (no pun intended) that Christian Fundie loudmouth Pat Robertson is leg-pressing 2000 pounds, no doubt in order to give Satan a good butt-kicking when he turns up on 6/6/6.

The claim was made on the website of the Christian Broadcasting Network: "Did you know that Pat Robertson can leg press 2,000 pounds? How does he do it? Where does Pat find the time and energy to host a daily, national TV show, head a world-wide ministry, develop visionary scholars, while traveling the globe as a statesman?"

By "statesman", we're assuming they mean religious standover man, natural disaster profiteer, insulter of our allies and just general bonehead who calls for the assassination of the leaders of other countries.

So what's the secret of Robertson's strength? Is it a miracle bestowed upon him by a grateful God? Not so, according to the good reverend himself. "One of Pat's secrets to…

Pope revisits his Hitler youth

Pope Benedict XVI has visited the former Nazi death camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau to finish his Polish visit. The German-born Pope prayed for peace in his native tongue during a somber ceremony.

"In a place like this, words fail," lamented the Pope. "In the end, there can only be a dread silence - a silence which is itself a heartfelt cry to God: Why, Lord, did you remain silent? How could you tolerate all this?"

Some might ask Pope Benny the same question, considering that he was formerly a member of the Hitler Youth, and watched Jews being herded into death camps while stationed in Hungary.

The prayer by God's Rottweiler was the first time he had publicly spoken German during his visit to Poland. There had been some uncertainty and controversy as to whether the Pope should speak in German while in the death camps. Some Jewish groups had said that speaking the language of the Nazis would insult the memory of the people murdered there.

The 79-year-old pontiff lit…

A day of posturing

In the week leading up to Memorial Day, the president acknowledged that some of his childish taunts hadn't been in America's best interests.

... (S)aying "bring it on," kind of tough talk, you know, that sent the wrong signal to people. I learned some lessons about expressing myself maybe in a little more sophisticated manner -- you know, "wanted dead or alive," that kind of talk. I think in certain parts of the world it was misinterpreted, and so I learned from that.
Bush wasn't misinterpreted in "certain parts of the world." No, they got it, and they've been giving our troops the fight that their Draft Dodger-in-Chief wanted so badly.

Now, more than 3 years after "Mission Accomplished," there are another 2,300 men and women to be remembered today.

Saturday, in his weekly radio address Bush told the nation that "the best way to honor America's fallen heroes is to carry on their fight, defend our freedom, and complete the mi…

He ain't heavy, he's my (big) brother

Fresh from the Jefferson office raid controversy, U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has stepped back into his fascist uniform by urging telecommunications officials to record their customers' Internet activities for as long as is legally possible.

In a private meeting with industry representatives, Gonzales and other senior members of the Justice Department - as well as FBI Director Robert Mueller - said Internet service providers should retain their users' network data for two years. Soon they could be forced to anyway, with moves to legally mandate data retention by the Bush administration. Currently, many ISPs delete their logs after only a day or two of rotation.

In a speech last month at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Gonzales said ISPs must retain records longer. "I will reach out personally to the CEOs of the leading service providers and to other industry leaders," Gonzales said. "Record retention by Internet service providers…

Has killing become part of the Pentagon “Press Policy”?

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

From the few credible reports, from very few news agencies around the world that are keen on presenting truth, we know that Iraq is now descending into a black hole, thanks to the decadent, bloated, demon-possessed, Neo-Con followers, who might now be sitting on their easy chairs, cheering the death of over a hundred thousand innocent people.

An Iraqi reporter and a Japanese human rights activist have recently warned against the distorted image the world has about what’s happening in Iraq. They also warned against an imminent health catastrophe, with Iraqis now more vulnerable to cancer as a result to the exposure to depleted uranium shells the U.S.-led occupation forces had been using in Iraq, Uruknet wrote recently.

During the Persian Gulf War, the U.S. blasted vehicles with armor-piercing shells made of depleted uranium, which helped bring the War to a swift conclusion. The U.S. was the first country to introduce such deadly weapons. The War ended, but the deva…

Stripping at the top of the world

The Himalayas are abuzz with word of the first-ever striptease performed atop the highest peak in the world.

Lakpa Tharke, a 24-year-old sherpa employed by Himalayan Guides, reached the summit of Mount Everest Friday. Caught up in the excitement of the moment, Tharke peeled off layer after layer until he stood naked at 29,035 feet for roughly three minutes.

Tharke's boss, Ishwori Poudel, had to laugh.

"He didn't tell me his plan before heading to Everest. This is quite a funny thing, maybe not a good idea, but he's young and strong." said Poudel, managing director of the Himalayan Guides Nepal Trek and Expeditions.

Ang Tshering Sherpa, head of the Nepal Mountaineering Association was decidedly less amused

"It's very shocking news because Mount Everest is sacred to the Nepali people. It's not appropriate. But if he did it, it is very shocking because Sagarmatha is the goddess mother," he said, referring to the mountain by its Nepali name.

In fact Sherp…

Bush honors war dead at Arlington

AP - 28 minutes ago

ARLINGTON, Va. - President Bush, visiting America's most hallowed military burial ground to "honor this place where valor sleeps," said Monday the nation must persevere in the war against terrorists for the sake of those have already given their lives in the cause. Noting that some 270 fighting men and women of the nearly 2,500 who have fallen since the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, are buried at Arlington National Cemetery, Bush said, "We have seen the costs in the war on terror that we fight today."

-He then went on to promise a few more years of job security to the workers of Arlington, promising them many more graves to fill before his term is up.

The Hungry Ghost

Image
The Hungry Ghost (writer, musician, and digital artist Blake Chen) conceived his webcomic series, Cass Corridor, as a companion project to his latest album.

Cass Corridor is the Detroit neighborhood where Chen spent five years performing both as a solo act and a member of the band N2 Submission.

Sharing the stage with more experienced musicians in the neighborhood's smoke-filled bars, Chen gradually developed his unique sound, a hybrid of the goth/industrial & trip hop influence prevalent in the scene and his own love of folk/country/blues music that he heard growing up.

I just stumbled upon this artist, but he is very cool. Kind of like Bob Dylan meets David Lynch meets Portishead. Kinda dark, but I really like it. And the comic he started to go with his album is very cool, and well done. Check him out!!!!

Scientology: "The Dark Side of Scientology," prt.1+2

Scientology: “The Dark Side of Scientology”

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

Scientology crimes: Murder; extortion; blackmail; kidnapping; child abuse; child neglect; slave labor camps; burglary; racketeering. These crimes and more are part of life within the Scientology mob. This video explores these crimes, with interviews from a few of the Scientologists ordered by the Scientology mob to commit them. “To the Scientology organization,” one victim of Scientology said, “human life does not mean a thing.” Garry Scarff explained Scientology’s RPF: the mob’s “Rehabilitation Project Force,” where Scientologists who no longer want to be Scientologists are sent to be “re-educated” via forced-labor reindoctrination camps where prisoners receive very little food and almost no sleep. Some Scientology prisoners have been observed being chained up in cellars to keep them from leaving Scientology. Several mysterious Scientology deaths are also explored. “Tom Cruise profited from the slave labor of Scientology prisoners,” Andre Tabayoyon testified in …

At least 1,000 UK soldiers desert

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

More than 1,000 members of the British military have deserted since the start of the Iraq War, the BBC has learned.

Figures for those still missing are 86 from 2001, 118 from 2002, 134 from 2003, 229 from 2004, 377 from 2005, and 189 for this year so far.

The news comes as Parliament debates a law that will forbid military personnel from refusing to participate in the occupation of a foreign country.

The MoD insists “absent without leave” figures have remained constant.

A Ministry of Defence spokeswoman said the soldiers currently missing were considered to be “absent without leave” and would have to be court martialled before they could be found guilty of deserting.

She added only one person has been found guilty of deserting the Army since 1989.

According to MoD figures 2,670 soldiers went “absent without leave” in 2001, with the figure rising to 2,970 in 2002 and falling in 2003 to 2,825. In 2004 it rose to 3,050, falling back again in 2005 to 2,725.

'Gross negligence' killed Pat Tillman

American hero Pat Tillman's death has been shrouded in deceit since day. Each time the Army has taken a closer look at the events surrounding the tragedy, the story seems to change. Today the awful truth behind Tillman's death became a little clearer.

Tillman's parents were first told their son died fighting the enemy in the Afghanistan, near the Pakistan border. They knew they were being lied to. Later, his death was termed an "accident." Still, the Tillmans knew better.

Now it turns out that the former NFL star was shot down by men in his own platoon, in what the some are terming "gross negligence," according to a report put together by CNN using documents obtained from the military.


What really happend?

On April 22, 2004, Tillman's platoon was on the hunt for either Taliban or Al Qaeda fighters. As fate would have it, their Humvee broke down. This lead to the platoon being split in two, as one group - Tillman's - forged ahead, the second group - …

Do you smell brimstone?

Fire and brimstone raining down, cats sleeping with dogs, Al Gore making sweet love to George W. Bush. That's right, the apocalypse - is it only two weeks away?

June 6th this year will translate to 6-6-6, the Number of the Beast, well-known from that crazy Bible chapter known as 'Revelations'. Excitement is mounting amongst Satan's minions, none more so than advertising executives, who are getting ready to jump on the Anti-Christ bandwagon in order to boost corporate profits and stir up some publicity.

Movie execs have already planned to release a remake of the satanic horror film The Omen on the day, a terrifying reminder of why moms-to-be are dreading the day.

And just to show the devil's got a sense of humor, David Lee Roth will also release a new album titled "Strummin' With the Devil," which is a bluegrass tribute to Van Halen. Yes, forget death metal ... Lucifer prefers bluegrass.

'Moussaoui wasn't in on 9/11'

A new audio recording posted on the internet from the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks says a U.S. court has convicted the wrong man.

A statement allegedly from Osama bin Laden claims that Zacarias Moussaoui was in no way involved in the terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 Americans.

"The truth is that he has no connection whatsoever with the events of September 11. I am certain of what I say because I was responsible for entrusting the 19 brothers ... with the raids," said the speaker who sounded like the leader of Al Qaeda.

He went on too dismiss Moussaoui's confession as "void," saying it was a reaction to "pressures exercised against him during four and a half years" in U.S. custody.

On May 4, Moussaoui wasn't convicted of conspiracy in connection to the hijackings. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole, miraculously avoiding the death penalty.

Two counter-terrorism officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said they were a…

Hayden's confirmation endorsed

The man at the helm of President Bush's illegal wiretapping scheme has been endorsed by the Senate Intelligence Committee to be the next director of the CIA, by a 13 - 2 vote.

Air Force Gen. Michael V. Hayden's nomination will likely go before the Senate for a full vote later this week.

If confirmed, Hayden will be taking over an agency shamed and in tatters. Former Director Porter Goss and #3-man Dusty Foggo were both forced to slink away, their names tainted by the same Hookergate scandal that brought Randy "Duke" Cunningham.

But stories of sad old men paying for sex are nothing compared to the real problems that have plagued the agency over the past five years.

In October of last year, Goss's boss, John Negroponte ordered his lackey to kill any further investigations into what went wrong within the agency that may have led to the events of 9/11.

Just three weeks after Negroponte's dictate, reports indicated that the CIA's former secret defense operation &qu…

Films on Guantánamo and Iraq face war of cuts

Suzanne Goldenberg / London Guardian May 18 2006

Two new films which expose unpleasant truths about Guantanamo and the battle for Iraq are coming under pressure from censors in the United States.
The Motion Pictures Association of America has censored a poster advertising a film about the Tipton three, called The Road to Guantanamo, that showed a hooded and blindfolded man hanging by his shackled wrists. Also, the makers of Baghdad ER, a documentary about a US military combat hospital, told the Guardian yesterday that Francis Harvey, the secretary of the army, had demanded last-minute changes to the film.


The Guantanamo film ran into difficulties with the MPAA last month when it submitted its advertising material for customary review. To the surprise of Howard Cohen, president of Roadside Attractions which is distributing the film in the US, the association demanded that the poster for the R-rated film be toned down.

China gags property boycott protester

Richard Spencer / London Telegraph May 22 2006

China has silenced a businessman who called for a boycott of property purchases in protest at rising house prices.

Zou Tao, who sells golf equipment in Shenzhen, was so outraged with prices that were out of reach of most ordinary Chinese that he launched a petition calling for the public to stop buying real estate for three years. Within days, he had 30,000 signatures from across the country.

Until recently, demands for lower prices would have been tolerated by the government, which is trying to deflate the bubble gently and is also concerned about growing resentment of China's new rich, many of whom have become speculators.

But by this week, when Mr Zou had arrived in Beijing to put his case to the authorities, it had decided he had gone too far, not least in arguing that local government corruption was fuelling the dangerous boom in prices.

He was detained at Shenzhen airport for 10 hours before being allowed to board his flight to the …

Zogby Poll: Over 70 Million American Adults Support New 9/11 Investigation

PRWEB May 22, 8:00 AM ET

Utica, NY May 22, 2006 -- Although the Bush administration continues to exploit September 11 to justify domestic spying, unprecedented spending and a permanent state of war, a new Zogby poll reveals that less than half of the American public trusts the official 9/11 story or believes the attacks were adequately investigated.

Poll results indicate 42% believe there has indeed been a cover up (with 10% unsure) and 45% think "Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their succ…

Verichip injects itself into immigration debate

UN Observer May 22 2006

Scott Silverman, Chairman of the Board of VeriChip Corporation, has alarmed civil libertarians by promoting the company's subcutaneous human tracking device as a way to identify immigrants and guest workers. He appeared on the Fox News Channel earlier this week, the morning after President Bush called for high-tech measures to clamp down on Mexican immigrants.

Privacy advocates Katherine Albrecht and Liz McIntyre are warning that a government-sanctioned chipping program such as that suggested by
Silverman could quickly be expanded to include U.S. citizens, as well.

Do our new bombs cause cancer?

Civilian casualties always make for bad press. Perhaps as damaging to the war effort is having to back off a target because it's too close to a school or hospital. So the Pentagon is always looking for new ways to pinpoint their deadly assaults, causing as little collateral damage as possible. Unfortunately, the newest weapon may cause cancer.

The Air Force Research Laboratory's latest attempt at precision death is called Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME). It's designed to be just as deadly as a conventional bomb, but keep its destructive radius at a minimum.

DIME has a carbon fiber casing which turns into dust upon explosion. Most bomb casing turn into deadly shrapnel that can kill bystanders up to 2,000 feet away.

Also, DIME's casing is filled with explosives and tungsten powder. The tungsten's micro-shrapnel is as deadly as regular shrapnel, but because it's so small it's dragged to a halt within 25 feet. It's "a smaller but deadlier footprint - a…

The NSA's secret chamber at AT&T

The judge in the Electronic Frontier Foundation's class-action suit against AT&T has refused to allow the EFF to reveal details of the telecom's efforts to aid the NSA's spying on innocent Americans. "Wired" magazine has taken it upon themselves to let the truth be known.

A three-page document written in 2004 by former AT&T employee Mark Klein, the whistle-blower tells of the secret chamber, Room 641A, that he discovered deep in the bowels of the SBC building -- where AT&T occupies floors six, seven and eight -- in San Francisco. In addition to the document (PDF) there are internal schematics and other resources that back up his allegations.

High speed fiber-optic cables run into the eighth floor of the building and then down to the seventh, where they connect to the company's WorldNet service, part of what's known as the "Common Backbone." It's here that the information the NSA so desperately wants resides - every search you make,…

Army Jury Convicts Soldier in Wife's Death

Sun May 21, 4:25 AM ET

FORT LEWIS, Wash. - A soldier was convicted Saturday of murdering and mutilating his teenage wife, a Fort Lewis spokesman said. An Army jury found Spc. Brandon Bare, 20, of Wilkesboro, N.C., guilty of premeditated murder and two counts of indecent acts for chopping his wife to death with a meat cleaver and desecrating her corpse.

After a five-day court martial, the jury deliberated about four hours Friday night before reaching the verdict shortly after midnight, said Fort Lewis spokesman Joseph Piek.

The same jury of five officers and three noncommissioned officers sentenced Bare Saturday evening to life in prison with the possibility of parole, Piek said. His rank was downgraded to private and Bare was dishonorably discharged. He must also forfeit all pay and allowances and be formally reprimanded.

Nabila Bare, 18, had been stabbed at least 71 times when she was found July 12, 2005, in the couple's kitchen.

Prosecutors portrayed Bare as a satanic, would-be seria…

Soldiers to get life in jail for refusing to act as occupiers

GERRI PEEV / The Scotsman May 19 2006

SOLDIERS who object to taking part in a military occupation of a foreign country will face life in prison under measures due to be rubber-stamped in the House of Commons on Monday.

The little-noticed Armed Forces Bill will have its third reading in the Commons on Monday and left-leaning MPs are alarmed that it will legitimise pre-emptive military strikes.

It will change the definition of desertion to include soldiers who go absent without leave and intend to refuse to take part in a "military occupation of a foreign country or territory".

Under the current Army Act, desertion is defined as "going absent intending not to come back, going absent to avoid any service overseas, or going absent to avoid service when before an enemy".

Campaigners have seized on the inclusion of "military occupation" as evidence that ministers are trying to scare soldiers from objecting to future preemptive strikes - a charge denied by the Minis…

Telling the ‘approved’ story

Tuesday, March 7th, 2006

On an unspecified day last week an employee of a federal agency that cannot be revealed delivered a document that cannot be identified to a company that cannot be named seeking information that cannot be discussed.

The aforementioned federal agent left the unidentified document with an employee of the unnamed company. That employee then called the owner, who must remain anonymous, to inform him that the document that could not be identified sought information that could not be discussed. The owner who must remain anonymous instructed the employee to deliver the unidentified document to a lawyer whose name is protected by attorney-client privilege.

The lawyer whose name is protected by attorney-client privilege examined the unidentified document and then reviewed the information that could not be discussed with the owner who must remain anonymous.

Thermite Identified As Culprit Of WTC Collapse

Evidence mounting that cause first identified on Alex Jones Show led to towers' implosion

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones/Prison Planet.com April 24 2006

A new branch of 9/11 research claims to have identified the cause of the collapse of the twin towers. The photographic and video evidence makes a very strong case for thermite being responsible for the unprecedented implosions of steel framed reinforced buildings on September 11.

This facet was first brought to light during a November 2005 appearance on The Alex Jones Show by Brigham Young University physicist Professor Steven Jones. Jones said that white phosphorous wasn't powerful enough to cause the implosion but that thermite was the likely culprit. Alex Jones's 2005 release Martial Law 9/11 Rise of the Police State highlighted the physical evidence that the towers and Building 7 were brought down with incendiary devices.

Brigham Young University physicist Professor Steven Jones told peers at a Utah meeting that, &qu…

Religion, Rome and The Reich: The Vatican’s other dirty secret

Sunday, May 21st, 2006

Forget ‘The Da Vinci Code’, ‘God’s HQ on earth’ has a real ghost in the cupboard - collusion with the Nazis. No wonder then, says Peter Stanford, that the church is hiding papers on the dealings of ‘Hitler’s Pope’, Pius XII.

As The Da Vinci Code arrives in our cinemas with its lurid accusations of a church cover-up of Jesus’s life as a family man, Roman Catholic leaders have been vocal in dismissing the film of Dan Brown’s bestseller as unsuitable viewing for believers. Cardinal amongst its sins according to them is its suggestion that a church organisation, Opus Dei, would attempt to manipulate history to fit its beliefs. But that, it was charged last week, is precisely what the Vatican is doing in regard of a much more recent event, the Holocaust.

An unflattering spotlight fell on God’s business address on Earth when the German Justice Minister, Brigitte Zypries, announced on Tuesday that her country is finally to open its huge archive of Nazi records on 17 milli…

The Road To Guantánamo

Image
In this compelling docudrama by Michael Winterbottom and Mat Whitecross, the 'Tipton Three' narrate their own experiences in America's controversial offshore detention camp

The Road To Guantánamo opens with archive footage of George W Bush, flanked by a stern-faced Tony Blair, declaring his certain knowledge that all the detainees held in Guantánamo are "bad people". Everything that follows is designed to turn these words inside out, as three young British Muslims tell the story of how they came to be in US custody at Guantánamo for over two years, and discuss the Kafkaesque horrors that awaited them there, until finally they were released without charge or apology.

The title may evoke the Bing Crosby and Bob Hope 'Road' movies of the 1940s, travel-themed musical comedies with a vaguely racist depiction of non-Americans, but the exotic journey embarked upon by the so-called 'Tipton Three' was to take them into areas that were politically incorrect i…

Lawmaker says Marines killed Iraqis 'in cold blood'

From Jamie McIntyre
CNN

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A decorated Marine colonel turned anti-war congressman has said Marines killed at least 30 innocent Iraqi civilians "in cold blood" in Haditha in November, suggesting the death toll may be twice as high as originally reported.

Rep. John Murtha, D-Pennsylvania, told reporters Wednesday that he got his information from U.S. commanders, who said the investigation will show that the Marines deliberately killed the civilians.

The U.S. Marine Corps has declined to comment on the report, which initially stated that 15 were killed.

"There was no firefight. There was no IED that killed these innocent people. Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood," Murtha said. (Watch Murtha level accusations against the Marines -- 1:58)

Murtha, who was decorated for his service in Vietnam, said the death toll may be more than twice as high as originally reported.

Illegal workers make you obese!

America's illegal-immigrant debate had run dangerously short of new arguments, but a brave newspaper columnist decided to think so far outside the box that the box itself could no longer be used as a viable point of reference:

Undocumented aliens make American citizens fat.

That's the remarkable conclusion of "former economics professor" Alfred Tella, who writes in Wednesday's Washington Times that the influx of illegal Latinos in the United States may well be the cause of America's obesity epidemic ... apparently because cheap illegal housecleaners and gardeners have cruelly robbed middle-class and wealthy Americans of their only chance at exercise.

"Though they can be found in various industries and occupations, illegal workers are employed in large numbers on household tasks that most Americans once did for themselves, such as cleaning the house and taking care of the yard," Tella explains.

"Some are employed directly by householders as maids, h…

China has revived a legal case against a detained New York Times researcher two months after dropping charges against him, his lawyer said.
Zhao Yan was arrested in September 2004 and was facing charges of leaking state secrets and fraud.

But the charges were dropped in March one month before a US visit by Chinese President Hu Jintao.

Lawyer Mo Shaoping said there was a new indictment against his client, but he did not know what the charges were.

"The prosecutors notified me last Friday that they had re-transferred the case to the Beijing Second Intermediate Court one or two days earlier," he told Reuters news agency.

He said prosecutors had told him they were "resuming criminal investigation and prosecution", but he said there was no legal basis for this under Chinese law.

"It is definitely a prolonged and illegal detention now," he said.

Mr Zhao, a Chinese national, had faced 10 years in jail after security officials alleged he told his employer, The New York …

HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuban President Fidel Castro furiously denied on Monday a story in Forbes magazine that he was worth $900 million and said he would step down if the magazine could prove the assertion.

The financial magazine ranked Castro as the seventh wealthiest ruler in the world in its annual tally of the "Fortunes of Kings, Queens and Dictators."

Castro went on television brandishing a copy of the U.S.-based magazine to tell Cubans the story was a "repugnant slander" by a capitalist publication.

With Communist Cuba's Central Bank governor at his side, Castro challenged Forbes to prove the allegation.

"If they can prove that I have a bank account abroad, with $900 million, with $1 million, $500,000, $100,000 or $1 in it, I will resign," he said at the end of a four-hour broadcast.

"It is so ridiculous to say I have a fortune of $900 million, a fortune with no heirs. What would I need all that money for, if …

British military says 'UFOs exist!'

Image
In a shocking announcement, the British Ministry of Defence has revealed "UFOs Exist: It's Official!" The revelation comes in the wake of a request by UFO researchers for the Ministry of Defence to release information about its secret investigations into strange sightings over Britain.

In a case of ask and you shall receive, the MoD dumped 200 megabytes worth of documents onto its public website detailing its confidential research into Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, also known as UAP (that UFO acronym is so old-fashioned). The verdict: UFOs exist. But the MoD thinks they are a mixture of natural and-man-made phenomena, rather than evidence of extraterrestrial life.

But what about all those sightings of aliens hopping out of UFOs and doing strange things to people? The MoD explains it away as being electromagnetic plasma fields warping their brains, causing hallucinations and lost memory.

The convoluted explanation from the MoD hasn't convinced many UFO researchers thoug…

'God's gonna pummel the coasts'

Professional hate-monger Pat Robertson has warned his television audience that furious storms are going to devastate America's coasts this year.

"If I heard the Lord right about 2006, the coasts of America will be lashed by storms," Robertson announced on Wednesday's broadcast of the 700 Club. "There well may be something as bad as a tsunami in the Pacific Northwest."

If past truly is prologue, Robertson is likely praying for such a horrifying disaster. Last summer, as Hurricane Katrina laid waste to New Orleans, Robertson's "Operation Rescue" was second on the once-secular American government's list of charities for Americans to send money to. Only the Red Cross was listed before Robertson.

Operation Rescue's board is loaded with Robertson's immediate family, with Marion Gordon Robertson -- Robertson's real name -- listed as chairman. Pat's wife DeDe is vice president and son Gordon Robertson is also on the board. The whole f…

Couple Arrested For Asking For Directions

BALTIMORE -- Baltimore City police arrested a Virginia couple over the weekend after they asked an officer for directions.

WBAL-TV 11 News I-Team reporter David Collins said Joshua Kelly and Llara Brook, of Chantilly, Va., got lost leaving an Orioles game on Saturday. Collins reported a city officer arrested them for trespassing on a public street while they were asking for directions .

"In jail for eight hours -- sleeping on a concrete floor next to a toilet," Kelly said.

"It was a nightmare," Brook said. "I was in there thinking I was just dreaming and waiting to wake up."


Collins reported it was a nightmare ending to a nearly perfect day. He said the couple went to a company picnic and watched the Orioles beat Kansas City. It was their first trip to Camden Yards and asked two people for directions to Interstate 95 South when they left.

Collins said somehow they ended up in the Cherry Hill section of south Baltimore. Hopelessly lost, relief melted away conce…
