White House Watch Columnist
Washington Post - United States
I thought that maybe Vice President Cheney's shocking interview last month (see my column, Cheney's Unforgivable Egotism) might incite some famiies to respond. In that interview, Cheney actually asserted that when it comes to the war in Iraq, it is Bush -- not the soldiers and Marines who fight and die, or their families --who is bearing the biggest burden. He breezily dismissed the sacrifices of the troops by pointing out that they volunteered for this.

War is illegal http://www.war-is-illegal.org/ex/banner/out5.gif


Against a background of escalating ecological crises, and the fact that large parts of the world´s population are being exposed to extreme poverty, inhuman working conditions and increasing social tensions, the annual global military expenditure has risen to more than 1000 billion dollars.


The military-industrial complex of just a few G8 countries is responsible for the overwhelming part of this spending, causing incalcuable social and ecological consequences.



Unequal distribution of global resources, increasingly controlled by large multinational companies, global debt policy and unfair international trading practices ultimately could not be maintained without military security. In many countries the military is used to repress critical opposition.



The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 are increasingly used to justify systematic surveillance and the dismantling of constitutional rights. Even European countries have helped to establish Guantanomo-like secret prisons, where torture in all probability takes place.



Iraq was attacked based on falsified evidence causing the death of hundreds of thousands of people, widespread destruction, destabilization and contamination with cancer-causing depleted uranium munitions.


Now plans to attack Iran and the possibility of a new World War have been made public, meeting resistance even from moderate elements within the military due to the unforeseeable consequences.


Faced with the choice between a war, that according to some western leaders, will last for many years or a possible peaceful transformation we support the following demands:


1) Impeachment proceedings against US President Bush and US Vice President Cheney before the 2008 election, a demand raised in solidarity with large parts of the US public and some members of US Congress. Furthermore prosecution by the International Court of Justice of G. W. Bush, R. Cheney and other officials from various countries for waging wars of aggression contrary to international law and committing crimes against humanity.



2) International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct. International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation.



3) Immediate military withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq, and no attack against Iran. International prohibition of war as a means of conflict resolution. Military intervention and export of weapons should be criminalized. In a civilized society torture must be prohibited in any form.



4) Conversion of military industries to civilian purposes and the development of ecological and sustainable energy resources. According to the UN environmental agency, a fraction of the annual global defence expenditure could ensure that all humans have access to clean water and a basic supply of food and healthcare.


This statement is based on a commitment to non-violence and tolerance of all ethnic groups and religions. Two devastating World Wars and historical catastrophes like the Nazi Holocaust must always remind us of the worst consequences of nationalism, racism and incitement to war.

Congress Considers National Security Letters




On Tuesday the Constitution Project joined a broad, bipartisan coalition in calling on Members of Congress to support the National Security Letters Reform Act. NSLs, which do not require prior judicial approval, can be used to obtain a wide range of documents based upon vague claims that the information is merely "relevant" to a terrorism investigation. Once the FBI acquires records with an NSL, it can keep them indefinitely, even when it concludes that the subject of those records is innocent of any crime and is not of intelligence interest. The bipartisan Act would impose reasonable limits on the use of the letters and how data obtained through their use could be used and retained. On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony on the subject, focusing on "The Need for Greater Accountability and Oversight."

LEGAL AFFAIRS

Reforming the State Secrets Privilege


The United States has a moral obligation to compensate and apologize to victims of its own misconduct.


National Journal: Reforming the State Secrets Privilege

In his April 12, 2008, feature in the National Journal, legal columnist Stuart Taylor discussed the need for substantive reform of the "state secrets privilege." The privilege is often used by the executive branch to quash lawsuits challenging controversial federal policies. Taylor specifically noted the leadership of the Constitution Project on this issue, citing the statement of our Liberty and Security Committee and Coalition to Defend Checks and Balances urging reform of the privilege.

Sat. Apr. 12, 2008
by Stuart Taylor Jr.


Among the legal issues over which the Bush administration and its congressional critics are stalemated in the war on terrorism is the so-called state secrets privilege. The case of one Khaled el-Masri illustrates the need for carefully balanced congressional reforms during the next administration to mitigate the privilege’s harsh effects on deserving plaintiffs—and on the national image.


In a petition filed on April 9 with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, this apparently innocent German citizen of Lebanese extraction described a harrowing five-month ordeal at the hands of Macedonian and then U.S. agents who mistook him for a Qaeda operative. While el-Masri was on a vacation trip, according to the petition (drafted by the American Civil Liberties Union), Macedonian agents abducted, isolated, and harshly interrogated him for 23 days, then brutally beat him while handing him over to a CIA “rendition team.” The CIA agents in turn allegedly beat, stripped, and drugged el-Masri and flew him to a secret prison in Afghanistan, where he was held incommunicado for more than four months, harshly interrogated, and treated inhumanely. Finally he was blindfolded again, flown to Albania, and released in the dead of night. El-Masri’s allegations draw plausibility from the government’s failure to deny his factual claims.

ACLU Files International Appeal in El-Masri




On April 9, the American Civil Liberties Union petitioned the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights on behalf of Khaled El-Masri, saying the U.S. government should be called on to apologize for its treatment of Mr. El-Masri and that the CIA's anti-terrorism rendition program should be found unlawful. Mr. El-Masri is a German citizen who was held by American agents for months, drugged, beaten, and tortured, apparently in violation of U.S. laws and treaties, and then abruptly deserted in a foreign country after federal officials realized they were holding the wrong man. His suit against the federal government was dismissed by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals last year after the Justice Department claimed a hearing would reveal state secrets. Attorneys from the American Civil Liberties Union representing Mr. El-Masri had filed a petition seeking review of the case in the Supreme Court, and the Constitution Project had filed an amicus brief in support, urging the Court to accept review of the case. Unfortunately, that petition was denied in October.

Truth About Impeachment



End Post…With A Hillary AND Condi PS

Hillary Heralds 30+ Year Control Of America By Interlocking Crime Family

Another Clinton in office would mean America being under the thiefdom of either a Bush or a Clinton for a total of at least 32 years, 36 if Hillary is re-elected.


Did Hillary Clinton Attend 2006 Bilderberg Conference?

It has now been revealed that not only did Hillary Clinton attend the 1997 elite Bilderberg meeting, but strong evidence has now emerged that she attended the 2006 Bilderberg meeting in Ottawa as well. Her attendance at these meetings means that she has been rubbing elbows with the planet’s most elite scum, including David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Lord Jacob Rothschild, and the Queen of the Netherlands.


Murdoch to host fundraiser for Hillary Clinton

Rupert Murdoch, the media mogul behind Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, has offered to host a political fundraiser for her re-election campaign. Last month Mrs. Clinton surprised Washington by attending the “Fox News Sunday” 10th anniversary party, where she chatted with Mr. Murdoch.


Clinton takes over $20,000 in Fox News donations

John Edwards criticized Democratic rival Hillary Clinton on Thursday for taking more than $20,000 in donations from News Corp. officials, arguing that the company’s Fox News Channel has a blatant right-wing bias and Democrats should avoid the company.


Hillary Clinton Voting Record

Being a self-professed anti-war candidate who vehemently opposes the Bush administration, all indicators warn that she is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. She voted for the Iraq War. She voted for the Patriot Act, as well as its Reauthorization in 2005. She voted against a bill prohibiting mass gun confiscation.


Senator Clinton won’t rule out use of military force against Iran

At a speech Friday to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Sen. Hillary Clinton said “no option can be taken off the table” when dealing with Iran. Clinton also advocated engagement with “our enemies and Israel’s enemies.”


Did Hillary Clinton order Waco assault?

According to Linda Tripp, it was Hillary and not Bill Clinton who directed the final assault on the Waco church in April 1993 that killed 79 people. Her accusations lend weight to charges made previously by Special Forces expert and Waco investigator, Steve Berry.

Hillary Clinton and the Whitewater Controversy: A Close-Up of the Cover-Up

In the four years that Hillary Clinton has been questioned about her role in the related events known as Whitewater, her public posture has changed very little. She has asserted that she has done nothing wrong and that “at the end, the American people will know that we have nothing to cover up.” Then investigators found the long-sought Rose Law Firm billing records in the private book room of the White House. Clinton says she has no idea how they got there.


Clinton’s insider deals on cattle futures

Two months after commencing the Whitewater scheme, Hillary Clinton invested $1,000 in cattle futures. Within a few days she had a $5,000 profit. Before bailing out, she earned nearly $100,000 on her investment. Many years later, economists have calculated that the chances of earning such returns legally were 1 in 250 million, generating allegations of disguised bribery.


Clinton’s friend Johnny Chung to plead guilty

Democratic fund-raiser Johnny Chung has agreed to plead guilty to election law violations. Chung became a major figure in the scandal when it was learned he made almost 50 visits to the Clinton White House, and during one visit, Chung gave First Lady Hillary Clinton then-chief-of-staff Maggie Williams a $50,000 check for the DNC. As Chung put it once, “I see the White House like a subway - you have to put in coins to open the gates.”


How Hillary’s money man was nailed for L.A. gala

The indictment of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s former Senate campaign finance chairman, David Rosen, on campaign finance charges was made possible by the cooperation of Judicial Watch client Peter Paul, the public interest watchdog group said today.


More Women In The News


Condoleezza Rice was a Chevron Director from 1991 until January 15, 2001 when she was transferred by President George Bush Jr. to National Security Adviser. Previously she was Senior Director, Soviet Affairs, National Security Council, and Special Assistant to President George Bush Sr. from 1989 to 1991.


Another Chevron Corporation giant in the Bush administration is Vice President Dick Cheney. Vice President Cheney was Chairman and Chief Executive of Dallas based Halliburton Corporation, the world’s largest oil field services company with multi-billion dollar contracts with oil corporations including Chevron. Lawrence Eagleburger, a seasoned Bush counselor who held top State Department posts under George Bush Sr., is a director of Halliburton Corporation.


Halliburton's global network of investments includes projects in politically volatile areas including the Caspian Sea region. Dick Cheney was instrumental in negotiating a Caspian Sea pipeline for Chevron. The crude oil pipeline is a 900-mile project stretching from western Kazakhstan to the Black Sea that will primarily benefit Chevron by connecting the Tengiz oil field to the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk in Russia. Chevron, the largest oil company member of the Caspian Pipeline Consortium, holds a 55 percent ownership interest with the Republic of Kazakhstan in Tengizchevroil. The 40-year, $20 billion joint-venture company was formed in 1993 to develop the Tengiz field. Tengiz is one of the world’s largest oil fields with 6 to 9 billion barrels of recoverable oil.


Also, there are allegations that the Bush Administration declared war in Afghanistan, not necessarily to combat terrorism, but to make it possible for U.S. oil interests to construct gas and oil pipelines from the Caspian Sea through Afghanistan to Pakistani harbors on the Indian Ocean. The first phase, now accomplish, was to install a friendly "puppet" regime in Kabul. La Voz de Aztlan has a report on this subject at: It's all about the "O" word!
