Why the recent Climate Report was so Harsh

09-04-2007 20:50

Here is a collection of reports about the scientific
studies being conducted around the world from
just the past few months. These are the reports
that went into the IPCC's data bank and where
from they came to their latest estimates and
projections. The first few have been published
after the Feb. 2 IPCC release.

The majority of them are from foriegn news
agencies and were never published in the US
media. Our corporate media wants you to know
every detail of a woman who decides to fly to Vegas
rather than get married. They don't care if you are
aware of the facts regarding our changing climate.

Please send this to eveywhere you can.

09-04-2007 20:46

After five years of solitary confinement in a small metal cell, David Hicks pleaded guilty on March 26 to one of the two charges brought against him by US military prosecutors on March 1, to finally get out of the notoriously brutal US military prison at Guantanamo Bay. Hicks’s case has revealed just what a sham the US-led “war on terror” really is.

Land of the Free, Home of the War on Terrorism

09-04-2007 20:36

“They told us this was one of the world's worst terrorists, and he got the sentence of a drunken driver,” said Ben Wizner, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, referring to David Hicks, a 31-year-old Australian who in a plea bargain with a US military court will serve nine months in prison, largely in Australia. That's after five years at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba without being charged with a crime, without a trial, without a conviction. Under the deal, Hicks agreed not to talk to reporters for one year (a slap in the face of free speech), to forever waive any profit from telling his story (a slap -- mon Dieu! -- in the face of free enterprise), to submit to US interrogation and testify at future US trials or international tribunals (an open invitation to the US government to hound the young man for the rest of his life), to renounce any claims of mistreatment or unlawful detention (a requirement which would be unconstitutional in a civilian US court).

U.S. Ambassador Sam Fox:From Swift Boat War Fraud to Belgium SWIFT Finance Fraud

09-04-2007 18:35

Sam Fox would be an economic,political and social parasite by any other name but to place him as U.S. Ambassador to Belgium after the W Bush Regime's SWIFT financial spying scandal by ex Treasury Secretary John Snow and the U.S. CIA in Belgium is a lot like putting a fox in charge of the chicken coop.
