The nation's top two law enforcement officials acknowledged Friday the FBI broke the law to secretly pry out personal information about Americans.

They apologized and vowed to prevent further illegal intrusions.

Heavy repression in Greece, following the voting of the new legislation for universities

The new frame law for the functioning of the Universities in Greece was voted on March 8th, 2007, after the decision of the government to start the process in the Parliament despite the public outrage; since students, pupils, teachers and academics have been in an ongoing struggle since May 2006, including occupations of schools and faculties, strikes and demonstrations.

As the state media reported, only the governmental party voted for the new law, while the rest of them decided to leave the room after the preliminary poll. Meanwhile, more than 35,000 students, teachers and academics were demonstrating in the streets of Athens, in order to surround the Parliament.

Demonstrators clashed with the police in front of the Parliament while the air became full of asphyxiating tear gas and rubber bullets were shot for the first time. The march was forced to split into pieces and about 100 demonstrators that happened to be at that place, were segregated and severely walloped by a heavy police force. Several attacks followed, in order to split the rest of the march into smaller pieces, when the school teachers were beaten as well. Individuals had to run away and hide in nearby buildings.

Chavez to lead Bush protest

"We are proud to stand in solidarity with our compatriot President Chavez against the imperialists," said Mercedes Moronos of Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, official sponsors of the rally, which has been approved by the Argentine government.

"Our message to Bush is, 'Get out of other countries. Let people live in peace.' "

Uruguay is not the only stop on Mr. Bush's tour where leftist groups hope to undercut the president's message, which he described in a Colombian television interview as "nothing more than to say we want to be your friends, ... that the United States cares deeply about the human condition."

In Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city, police clashed yesterday with more than 6,000 students, environmentalists and left-leaning Brazilians protesting the Bush visit and his push for an ethanol energy alliance with Brazil.

Protesting students also lobbed rocks and homemade explosives called potato bombs at riot police on a university campus in the Colombian capital of Bogota, where Mr. Bush is scheduled to visit Sunday as part of his five-nation tour of Latin America.

At one point, a large balloon floated above the motorcade reading "Fora Bush" — "Bush, Out" — with a swastika standing in for the "s" in Bush.

...
For his part, Chávez arrived in Buenos Aires late Thursday night for rallies to counter Bush's visit. Chávez immediately began mocking Bush and his motives, especially disparaging what he characterized as Bush's belated and "hypocritical" focus on issues of economic and social injustice.

"He seems like Columbus, he's discovering poverty," Chávez said. "The fundamental blame belongs to the Empire, to the economic models and coup d'états. And now he comes to us to talk of democracy, with what right?"

China creating company to invest US$1 trillion reserves

China is creating an investment company to make more profitable use of its US$1 trillion in foreign currency reserves, the finance minister said Friday, in a move that could change the flow of billions of dollars in global markets.

Finance Minister Jin Renqing gave no details of how the Cabinet-level company might invest the reserves, which are believed to be mostly in safe but low-yielding U.S. Treasury bonds. He also did not say what portion of the reserves might be channeled through the company or when it would start to operate.

"We can achieve more profit from the investments," Jin said at a news conference. "We are now preparing the organization of this new corporation."

Protesters aim to take over lawmakers’ offices, fight war funding

Some opponents of the Iraq war are taking their protests straight to Congress — staging “occupations” in lawmakers’ offices on Capitol Hill and in their home communities.

Rep. Rahm Emanuel’s office in Chicago was targeted on Thursday.

A day earlier protesters were headed off before getting into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office in San Francisco.

In Washington, peace activists dressed in pink showed up recently at the Senate offices of presidential hopefuls John McCain and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The protesters haven’t abandoned the larger, more familiar gatherings at college campuses, major cities and monuments in Washington. But in recent weeks, they have been turning up at congressional offices, vowing to stay until they get pledges that lawmakers will vote against more war funding — or until they are forcibly removed.

“We really see it as an extension of lobbying,” Jeff Leys, co-coordinator of Chicago-based Voices for Creative Nonviolence, said of the office occupations. “The aim is to keep going back time and time and time again.”

The protesters number anywhere from a handful to a few dozen. Sometimes, they stay for minutes. Sometimes, they remain for hours before police move in.

Organizers count more than 140 arrests so far. Most involve charges of trespassing or disorderly conduct.

During the occupations, the protesters sit, stand, sing, chant, pray, ring bells, and read letters from American troops sent home to their families.

The Politics of Naming: Genocide, Civil War, Insurgency
Mahmood Mamdani

The similarities between Iraq and Darfur are remarkable. The estimate of the number of civilians killed over the past three years is roughly similar. The killers are mostly paramilitaries, closely linked to the official military, which is said to be their main source of arms. The victims too are by and large identified as members of groups, rather than targeted as individuals. But the violence in the two places is named differently. In Iraq, it is said to be a cycle of insurgency and counter-insurgency; in Darfur, it is called genocide. Why the difference? Who does the naming? Who is being named? What difference does it make?

The most powerful mobilisation in New York City is in relation to Darfur, not Iraq. One would expect the reverse, for no other reason than that most New Yorkers are American citizens and so should feel directly responsible for the violence in occupied Iraq. But Iraq is a messy place in the American imagination, a place with messy politics. Americans worry about what their government should do in Iraq. Should it withdraw? What would happen if it did? In contrast, there is nothing messy about Darfur. It is a place without history and without politics; simply a site where perpetrators clearly identifiable as ‘Arabs’ confront victims clearly identifiable as ‘Africans’.

A full-page advertisement has appeared several times a week in the New York Times calling for intervention in Darfur now. It wants the intervening forces to be placed under ‘a chain of command allowing necessary and timely military action without approval from distant political or civilian personnel’. That intervention in Darfur should not be subject to ‘political or civilian’ considerations and that the intervening forces should have the right to shoot – to kill – without permission from distant places: these are said to be ‘humanitarian’ demands. In the same vein, a New Republic editorial on Darfur has called for ‘force as a first-resort response’. What makes the situation even more puzzling is that some of those who are calling for an end to intervention in Iraq are demanding an intervention in Darfur; as the slogan goes, ‘Out of Iraq and into Darfur.’

What would happen if we thought of Darfur as we do of Iraq, as a place with a history and politics – a messy politics of insurgency and counter-insurgency? Why should an intervention in Darfur not turn out to be a trigger that escalates rather than reduces the level of violence as intervention in Iraq has done? Why might it not create the actual possibility of genocide, not just rhetorically but in reality? Morally, there is no doubt about the horrific nature of the violence against civilians in Darfur. The ambiguity lies in the politics of the violence, whose sources include both a state-connected counter-insurgency and an organised insurgency, very much like the violence in Iraq.

The 10th APPO Megamarch Observes Women's Day

On International Women’s Day, March 8, the APPO, teachers, civil society organizations, campesinos and women – among them the Coordination of the Women of Oaxaca (COMO), and indigenous women’s organizations – marched in defiance of the repressive policies of Governor Ulises Ruiz.
...
the release today from prison of APPO’s Carerino Torres Pereda, grabbed early in the repression in Tuxtepec. Torres is an active member of the Citizen Defense Committee (CODECI). Seven other political prisoners who had been incarcerated since November 25 were freed as well, from Oaxaca state facilities in Miahuatlán and Tlacolula.

The released APPO prisoners were freed with the intervention of the Comisión Civil Internacional de Observación de Derechos Humanos (CCIDH), which recently investigated Oaxaca. Fifty-five sympathizers of the APPO, including Flavio Sosa Villavicencio and his brothers Erick and Horacio, are still held in out-of-state federal maximum security prisons.

dada said...

acrostic-ballads... well, he writes things like that. Lewis Carroll I mean.

My brother does mesostics, which are similar... here, I'll let john Cage explain:

"Like acrostics, mesotics are written in the conventional way horizontally, but at the same time they follow a vertical rule, down the middle not down the edge as in an acrostic, a string spells a word or name, not necessarily connected with what is being written, though it may be. This vertical rule is lettristic and in my practice the letters are capitalized. Between two capitals in a perfect or 100% mesostic neither letter may appear in lower case.

.... In the writing of the wing words, the horizontal text, the letters of the vertical string help me out of sentimentality. I have something to do, a puzzle to solve. This way of responding makes me feel in this respect one with the Japanese people, who formerly, I once learned, turned their letter writing into the writing of poems.

In taking the next step in my work, the exploration of nonintention, I don't solve the puzzle that the mesostic string presents. Instead I write or find a source text which is then used as an oracle. I ask it what word shall I use for this letter and what one for the next, etc. This frees me from memory, taste, likes, and dislikes, By means of Mesolist, a program by Jim Rosenberg, all words that satisfy the mesostic rule are listed. IC [a program that generates the I Ching numbers, available for downloading on the Net] then chooses which words in the lists are to be used and gives me all the central words, the position of each in the source material identified by page, line, and column. I then add all the wing words from the source text following of course the rule Mesolist does within the limit of forty-five characters to the right and the same to the left. Then I take out the words I don't want.

With respect to the source material, I am in a global situation. Words come first from here and then from there. The situation is not linear. It is as though I am in a forest hunting for ideas." --John Cage

Supermodels for Oaxaca (APMO) to Oppose the Miss Universe Pageant at the Monte Albán Ruins in May 2007

But we supermodels won't let it happen.

Lula urges Bush to Respect Sovereignty of All Latin American Countries
...
Bush did not mention Chavez in his speech, and even ignored a question about the Venezuelan president in a press conference.

Instead, Bush rejected claims that his government turned its back on Latin America, and stressed that the United States does not get enough credit for the 1.6 billion dollars in aid it gives the region each year.

'Part of the message of my trip ... is to say that the American people care deeply about social justice,' Bush noted.

However, he stressed that 'the most effective anti-poverty programme is trade' ***CHOKE**** and said that the US and Brazil need to work together to end deadlock in the Doha Round of talks at the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Bush Versus Chavez (James Petras)

...
President Bush's visit to Uruguay, Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Mexico reflects the 'two tracks' of US empire-building--military intervention and political-diplomatic instruments.

Bush's visit to Latin America at this time is an attempt to gain support from client electoral rulers at a time when he has lost the support of over 75% of US public opinion, and is rejected by overwhelming majorities in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. Bush's advisers and principal propagandists are counting on publicizing the friendly receptions by Lula, Vazquez, Uribe, Garcia and Calderon to counter the reality and public image of Bush as a mass murderer of the Iraqi and Afghani people.

Bush's escalation of the war against Iraq and threat to bomb Iran has further marked his regime as the deadly enemy of humanity.

I guess that bears explaining. I believe that the amount of change that any one generation will bear willingly is finite. I believe that incremental change, in the direction of democratic socialism, is fairly inevitable, provided we do not suffer species extinction. I believe in working toward that goal, though I may not live to realize it.

Unfortunately, I think that those who prefer dominion may have figured it out first.

A courageous Cuban human-rights activist and samizdat reporter named Guillermo Farinas recently sent an open letter to the regime requesting the same Internet rights for Cubans as enjoyed by every Latin-American citizen.

Today, Cuba — a nation that in 1958 had more TVs and telephones per capita than any continental European country — has fewer Internet connections than Uganda, the lowest number in the hemisphere.

Despite the unsuccessful war in Iraq and the troubled times in Iran, Afghanistan, Israel, Palestine, North Korea, and several other countries, Rice has become the most trusted popular member of the Bush administration. She is arguably the most talked about, respected, and admired woman in the world. And she is certainly the most powerful woman on the globe today. The road Rice has traveled is an inspiration to all people — American or otherwise.

Dr. Condoleezza Rice became the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, commonly referred to as the National Security Advisor, on January 22, 2001.

In June 1999, she completed a six year tenure as Stanford University 's Provost, during which she was the institution's chief budget and academic officer. As Provost she was responsible for a $1.5 billion annual budget and the academic program involving 1,400 faculty members and 14,000 students.

The same could be said for Robert McNamara, only more so. His career achievements dwarf those of Rice. Still, in 1995 he admitted to lying to Congress and the American people while Secretary Of Defense in his book "Retrospect: The Tragedy And Lessons Of Vietnam".

While Dubya is clearly of sub-average intellect, having above average abilities and career milestones is no guarantee of also having moral and ethical boundaries.

"The Politics of Naming: Genocide, Civil War, Insurgency"
by Mahmood Mamdani

http://www.lrb.co.uk/v29/n05/mamd01_.html

March 9, 2007 10:43 PM
-----------------------------------

Excerpt:

"With very few exceptions, the Save Darfur campaign has drawn a single lesson from Rwanda: the problem was the US failure to intervene to stop the genocide.
Rwanda is the guilt that America must expiate, and to do so it must be ready to intervene, for good and against evil, even globally."

-----------------------------------

I disagree. What guilt does America have over Rwanda? What nonsense!

In Rwanda, the failure was that the international community was unwilling to stop genocide as mandated by international law.

In Darfur, the U.S. and the international community should support negotiations and UN peacekeepers to stop the violence perpetuated by any groups (including the rebels). The U.S. should provide funding to help support an international peacekeeping force (along with some logistical assistance) based on international law -- in response to genocide, ethnic cleansing, or crimes against humanity.

I believe the "banality of evil" is the more applicable phrase to use while genocide, ethnic cleansing, or war is occurring -- regardless of the countries, groups, or individuals involved.

Finally, the author's own assumptions and simplistic views of anyone who applies the word "genocide" in Darfur are disturbing and unfortunate.

WAR CRIMES

A Report on United States War Crimes Against Iraq to the Commission of Inquiry for the International War Crimes Tribunal, by Ramsey Clark and Others

Incinerated body of an Iraqi soldier on the "Highway of Death," a name the press has given to the road from Mutlaa, Kuwait, to Basra, Iraq. U.S. planes immobilized the convoy by disabling vehicles at its front and rear, then bombing and straffing the resulting traffic jam for hours. More than 2,000 vehicles and tens of thousands of charred and dismembered bodies littered the sixty miles of highway. The clear rapid incineration of the human being [pictured above] suggests the use of napalm, phosphorus, or other incindiary bombs. These are anti-personnel weapons outlawed under the 1977 Geneva Protocols. This massive attack occurred after Saddam Hussein announced a complete troop withdrawl from Kuwait in compliance with UN Resolution 660. Such a massacre of withdrawing Iraqi soldiers violates the Geneva Convention of 1949, common article 3, which outlaws the killing of soldiers who "are out of combat." There are, in addition, strong indications that many of those killed were Palestinian and Kuwaiti civilians trying to escape the impending seige of Kuwait City and the return of Kuwaiti armed forces. No attempt was made by U.S. military command to distinguish between military personnel and civilians on the "highway of death." The whole intent of international law with regard to war is to prevent just this sort of indescriminate and excessive use of force.
(Photo Credit: © 1991 Kenneth Jarecke / Contact Press Images)

"It has never happened in history that a nation that has won a war has been held accountable for atrocities committed in preparing for and waging that war. We intend to make this one different. What took place was the use of technological material to destroy a defenseless country. From 125,000 to 300,000 people were killed... We recognize our role in history is to bring the transgressors to justice." Ramsey Clark

New pamphlet: "Alcatraz – Uncle Sam's Devil's Island"

The Kate Sharpley Library has just published a new edition of Philip Grosser's account of his time imprisoned on the notorious prison island of Alcatraz. Philip Grosser was sent to Alcatraz because he didn't want to murder anyone, even on government orders. He was a Boston anarchist and anti-militarist who refused to be drafted into the slaughter of World War One.

He was, in his own words, 'not a very good example to other drafted men', and stayed a stubborn rebel who could not be turned into a soldier. As an anarchist he denied the government's right to run or throw away his life. For that reason he had to face the inhumanity of authority defied.

Grosser's account of his time inside is an early exposé of official brutality in America's most notorious prison. It's also a powerful account of resistance and endurance. The original pamphlet was first published by Grosser's friends after his death in the 1930s. It's been expanded with letters by, to and about him from the Alexander Berkman papers at the International Institute of Social History, Amsterdam. They shed a little more light on the life of a rebel who could be counted on in the struggle for human freedom.

"Phil was one of the finest comrades it has been my good fortune to meet. And well I remember his stand during the war. I know all the humiliation and tortures he had to go through because of his loyalty to a high ideal." – Alexander Berkman

Karen lost her husband almost four years ago and still hasn't gotten out of her mourning stage.

Her daughter is constantly calling her and urging her to get back into the world.

Finally, Karen says she'd go out, but didn't know anyone.

Her daughter immediately replies: "Mom! I have someone for you to meet.

Well, it was an immediate hit.

They took to one another and after dating for six weeks, he asks her to join him for a weekend in the Catskills.

Their first night there, she undresses as he does. There she stood nude except for a pair of black lacy panties, he in his birthday suit.


Looking at her he asks: "Why the black panties?"

She replies: "My breasts you can fondle, my body is yours to explore, but down there I am still in mourning."


He knows he's not getting lucky that night.

The following night the same scenario.

She's standing there with the black panties on, and he is in his birthday suit ... except that he is wearing a black condom.

She looks at him and asks: "What's with this .... a black condom?"
He replies: "I want to offer my deepest condolences."

Dear Abby:

I have been engaged for almost a year. I am to be married next month. My fiancee's mother is not only very attractive but really great and understanding.

She is putting the entire wedding together and invited me to her place to go over the invitation list because it had grown a bit beyond what we had expected it to be.

When I got to her place we reviewed the list and trimmed it down to just under a hundred ... then she floored me.

She said that in a month I would be a married man and that before that happened, she wanted to have sex with me.


Then she just stood up and walked to her bedroom and on her way said that I knew where the front door was if I wanted to leave.

I stood there for about five minutes and finally decided that I knew exactly how to deal with this situation.

I headed straight out the front door...

There, leaning against my car was her husband, my father-in-law to be. He was smiling.

He explained that they just wanted to be sure I was a good kid and would be true to their little girl.

I shook his hand and he congratulated me on passing their little test.


Abby, should I tell my fiancee' what her parents did, and that I thought their "little test" was asinine and insulting to my character?

Or should I keep the whole thing to myself including the fact that the reason I was walking out to my car was to get a condom.

Pentagon looking at kicking out Marine gay porn star prostitute
by John Aravosis (DC) · 3/10/2007 11:44:00 AM ET


They need to see if Dont Ask Dont Tell covers sodomy, and "telling" I presume, BEFORE you enlisted. You know they're gonna kick him out. There is no way a gay-porn star male prostitute is going to be permitted to remain in the Marines, regardless of his claims that he's not gay. As I mentioned before, the irony here is that Matt Sanchez's friends on the right, who gave him an award for his service, want him kicked out of the Marines, while the folks on the left, who he claims hate him, are the ones fighting for his right to serve. Think about that one, Matt, the next time you do interviews talking about how much the Party of "Faggot" embraces you. More from Joe.My.God.

General Eaton: “Republican Congress worst thing that’s happened to US Army and Marine Corps”
By: SilentPatriot @ 10:20 AM - PST

(Guest blogged by Logan Murphy)

Friday night on Real Time, Bill Maher interviewed retired Army Major General Paul D. Eaton who was the original Commander in charge of training Iraqi troops. Maher tries to get a laugh out of him but as you'll see, Eaton is a straightforward man who doesn't mince words — if he says it, he means it. He blames Donald Rumsfeld for the majority of the failures in Iraq (including the current problems at Walter Reed), thanks God for the new Democratic majority and lays down some truth:

Download (3383) | Play (3134) Download (990) | Play (1994)

"We've got this thing that so many military believe that Republican administrations are good for the military. That is rarely the case. And, we have to get a message through to every soldier, every family member, every friend of soldiers that the Republican party, the Republican dominated Congress has absolutely been the worst thing that's happened to the United States Army and the United States Marine Corps."

Bush has always contended that he "listens to the generals on the ground", but we know that's a lie. It's obvious that he ignores or fires anyone who doesn't tell him what he wants to hear. After listening to Eaton rip him and his administration to shreds, I can see why.

Administration ‘loses’ Padilla interrogation tape. Jose Padilla, a U.S. citizen, was detained for four years without formal charges, much of it in solitary confinement. An independent medical expert say his repeated interrogations have made him mentally unfit for trial. Now, the judge in Padilla’s case has ordered the administration to turn over all tapes made of his interrogations, specifically a session from March 2004 while he was still held as an “enemy combatant.” But the administration says it lost the tape.

U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke was incredulous that anything connected to such a high-profile defendant could be lost.

“Do you understand how it might be difficult for me to understand that a tape related to this particular individual just got mislaid?” Cooke told prosecutors at a hearing last month.

Glenn Greenwald has much more.

Gates may undo Rumfeld/Feith intel changes. “Pentagon chief Robert Gates is considering whether to dismantle some controversial spying operations set up by his predecessor, Donald Rumsfeld, as a way of by-passing the CIA. … Former officials involved in an ongoing debate about Pentagon spying say he’s considering whether to pull back the so-called ‘Strategic Support Branch‘ and other intelligence channels established by Rumsfeld and his former lieutenants, Stephen Cambone and Douglas Feith.” Shane Harris has the full story in the National Journal.

Did Rove orchestrate the U.S. attorney firings? New Mexico Republican Party Chairman Allen Weh said he complained in 2005 about then-U.S. Attorney David Iglesias to White House officials and asked that Iglesias be removed because he was not indicting Democrats. “Weh said he followed up with Rove personally in late 2006 during a visit to the White House.” Weh said Rove told him: “He’s gone.” His account calls into question the White House’s involvement in the recent firings of eight U.S. attorneys.
