The Mehlis report on the Hariri assassination is just another dodgy dossier. In order to lay the blame for the assassination at Syria's door it specializes in innuendo and unverified allegations by anonymous persons. The only named individual purporting to possess information incriminating Syria turns out to be a multiply convicted swindler who was paid handsomely for his revelations by a Syrian dissident.

Family of Jean Charles de Menezes, lodge official complaint against Blair lies

22-10-2005 11:15

Jean Charles de Menezes (innocent): Son, brother, uncle, cousin, a good friend
The family has lodged a formal complaint against the Met Police over the 30 hour delay before they were informed of the 27-year-old's death despite him carrying several forms of ID on him and having his home in Scotia Road, south London under surveillance.

Sir Ian Blair head of the Metropolitan Police force also told several lies, and allowed these lies to circulate in the media. Ian Blair should resign or be sacked.

If the British public are to have any trust in the Police, the Police should not be run by a liar lacking integrity.

Maria Otone da Silva "I'm so sad about what has happened to my son but I feel the English people, everybody wants to have the truth" (Jean's Mother)

Griffin Seals Case for 9/11 WTC Demolition, Calls on NY Times to End Coverup

19-10-2005 18:00

In two speeches to overflow crowds in New York last weekend, notable theologian David Ray Griffin argued that recently revealed evidence seals the case that the Twin Towers and WTC-7 were destroyed by controlled demolition with explosives. Despite the many enduring mysteries of the 9/11 attacks, Dr. Griffin concluded, "It is already possible to know, beyond a reasonable doubt, one very important thing: the destruction of the World Trade Center was an inside job, orchestrated by terrorists within our own government."

The Peace Camp.
They families have been denied legal aid to take the government to court over the decision to invade Iraq. They want a public enquiry into the decision to go to war.
