NIGERGATE: 51st US STATE--ITALY--Exporter of War-Pretenses for ROVE, LEDEEN

02-08-2005 19:41

George Bush's Private Eye
Have our Italian friends consumed too much of MSG or prions in their pepperoni? Have they thus taken leave of their senses that they allow the US CIA to get away with kidnapping persons from Italy? Have they taken so many steroids in bulking up for the soccer game that they are so deficient of testosterone that they will not bring the 19 US spies in the Abu Omar opera to justice? Surely if the US can kidnap persons it wants from Milan's ancient streets, then Italy can publish photos of the 19 so they can be returned to Italy.

Portraits from Parliament Square

01-08-2005 23:00

Sinister Extremists!
I was so scared and intimidated by the unruly mob gathered in Parliament Square that I fled fearing for my own safety. As the pictures below prove this gang of would-be terrorists were on the brink of probably doing something. Today UK Indymedia is proud to announce the launch of it's campaign to get the brave bobbies that tackled them awarded George Crosses!

Expect a cover-up from the IPCC

31-07-2005 22:09

….Recommendation 10 of the MacPherson Report into the murder of Stephen Lawrence suggests that the reports of investigating officers be made available to complainants against the police. That recommendation is subject of consultation and debate within the Home Office. The view of the Association of Chief Police Officers, supported by the Metropolitan Police, is that there is significant law supporting the view that such reports should not be routinely disclosed to complainants. It is vital that Investigating Officers feel they can be can be candid when preparing their reports. Any loss of candour would significantly detract from their value to senior officers who rely upon the insight, views and perceptions of investigators when reaching decisions. Such views are frequently subjective and need to be interpreted with care by an experienced person…..

…A matter I have considered is whether or not I should have the report redacted if it were revealed to you.It is 82 pages long and contains 349 paragraphs. Redaction would take some time and render the report meaningless

IPCC press release

"The IPCC have forfeited the appearance of independence before a single statement has been taken by appointing a former Met officer of senior rank to investigate his former colleagues. This is not the way to create confidence in a new watchdog.

The 9/11 Key to Political Transformation

31-07-2005 06:09

"Looking at the onslaughts we face, it's obvious that this administration's primary source of war-making, rights-taking, vote-raking power is still and always has been the "official 9/11 story." The exquisitely timed "surprise attack" it portrays instantly justified what we now know was a long planned agenda to take us into endless war, crippling debt and constitutional twilight."
