Grim. Please write your legislators in Washington.

He, he, he. I love the internet. One of the planes described in this story was described in the article Outsourcing Torture. (See "The US Rendition Program" in the post index to the right.)

Gannongate 


Here's the latest on the story about Jeff Gannon aka Guckert, the alleged gay prostitute who was given access to White House press briefings under his pseudonym. I've read he had outstanding tax debt owed to the State of Delaware. Anyway, this latest bit is interesting because it reveals yet another lie by Bush officials.

Bush Appoints Another Torture Supporter 


I almost spit out my lunch when I saw the following headline on Yahoo:

"Bush Nominates Negroponte as Intel Chief." The story is here.

Hopefully, I'll get around to another post outlining his stellar experience helping Central American death squads accomplish the goals of the Reagan administration -- to wipe out any grassroots movement for freedom and equal economic opportunity in for the region's poor.

I'll say it again, welcome to fascim folks.

More Evidence of US Crimes Against US Citizens 


Do you know the story of US citizen Ahmed Abu Ali? He's being held in Saudia Arabia without charge, at the US behest. He was studying in Medina, Saudia Arabia when he was taken into custody. There are allegations that he has been tortured, including having his fingernails torn off. If you don't know anything about this case, read here, and here, and listen to Nina Totenberg's summary of the case and its current status here.

The US Rendition Program 


This is a must read. It is a long article from the New Yorker, compliments of CommonDreams.org, about the CIA's rendition practices. You know, bringing suspects to countries where they'll likely be tortured for the purpose of getting information. This article explains the practice that has been ongoing and intense since the 9-11 attacks.
