Court dismisses Iraqi contractor torture case
09-11-2009  •  Reuters 
A federal appeals court dismissed a lawsuit against two U.S. defense contractors by Iraqi torture victims, saying the companies had immunity as government contractors.

The lawsuit was filed in 2004 on behalf of Iraqi nationals who say they or their relatives had been tortured or mistreated while detained by the U.S. military at the Abu Ghraib prison.

The plaintiffs sued CACI International Inc, which provided interrogators at Abu Ghraib, and L-3 Communications Holdings Inc's Titan unit, which provided interpreters to the U.S. military.

‘Leading architect’ of Bush surveillance quietly appointed to declassification board
09-11-2009  •  Rawstory 

The man who helped oversee President George W. Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program now has a new job: a membership on the Public Interest Declassification Board.

Former Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden, who led the National Security Agency under President Bush from 1999 to 2005 and the Central Intelligence Agency from 2006 until President Barack Obama’s inauguration, was appointed during the Labor Day recess by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

Bush Justice Department official who lied won't be charged
09-11-2009  •  Rawstory 
Attorney General Eric Holder has decided not to bring any criminal charges against a former Bush administration official who lawmakers said lied to them in sworn testimony.

An inspector general's report found that Bradley Schlozman, the former head of the civil rights division, misled lawmakers about whether he politicized hiring decisions.

Criminal prosecutors eyed the matter but decided not to file any criminal charges for his under-oath denials of making personnel decisions based on politics.

Informant says FBI threw away chance to catch alleged 9/11 plotter
09-11-2009  •  Rawstory 
A Lebanon-native who pretended to be an Islamic extremist at the behest of American authorities claims that the FBI took him off the trail of alleged 9/11 plotter Mohammed Atta right as a window of opportunity opened to catch him.

Were it not for the FBI’s action, the informant says he is “one million percent positive” the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks could have been prevented.

The claims are part of an ABC News report, set to air on Thursday’s editions of World News Tonight and Nightline.

Climate change on trial Business group wants proof of threat
09-11-2009  •  Market Watch 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the largest nonprofit business group in the world, is seeking to have the facts of climate change put on trial -- to the delight of some of its members and the chagrin of others. The chamber petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency seeking proof of the agency's finding that climate change poses a public threat. In papers filed in federal court just two weeks ago, the chamber says "that a proceeding on the record is necessary to narrow the areas of scientific uncertainty, to permit a credible weighing of the scientific evidence, and to enable submitters of proof to demonstrate the falsity of some key erroneous claims."  Read Full Story

Since all the sources were found during local [Mars] summer and disappeared during winter, are the methane sources active only at certain periods of the Martian year? Are they near the surface or buried deeper in the soil? What mechanisms trigger the methane releases?

This impressive seasonal change in the distribution of methane raises many new questions, but one thing is for sure: Mars is no longer considered a dead planet. It has a very strong activity, whether geologic or due to life " maybe both.

How Far Does The Lawlessness Go?
09-11-2009  •  The Market Ticker 
Out-of-control banana republic regimes usually wind up that way incrementally. Rarely does a madman come to power and simply seize the crown. Oh sure, it happens, but it nearly always incites immediate civil disorder and even open warfare, civil or (often) externally-promoted. When Saddam invadaed Kuwait it did not take long before the world responded with lots of guns, bombs and planes, as just one example. But the slow, gradual co-opting of a government from inside out is another matter. These sorts of regimes usually collapse of their own weight, but not before they take down huge swaths of the population with them, reducing them to squalor. Thus it happened in Zimbabwe, Argentina and countless others over the years. Has it happened in the United States already, but the people simply haven't woken up? Two years ago, five, ten I would have instantly dismissed such a proposition as preposterous. Now I'm not so sure.  Read Full Story
