The "liberal" media continue to expose themselves to foreigners stationed in America as the Nazi like propagandists which they are. While the rest of the worlds people are learning about the crimes committed by the CIA in Iraq (as the rest of the world continue to learn about the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians by Israel while Americans are kept in the dark), Americans who get their news from television (90% of Americans get their news this way) are being kept blissfully ignorant about truly awful crimes of torture which are still leaking out. And it only gets worse. Seymour Hersh has been lecturing around the country at Universities and he has said at these events that the abuses at Abu Ghraib include the sodomizing of little boys. Of course, as you might guess the "American" media will not report this even though there are pictures and videos of this abuse which all representatives of the national "American" media have seen. All our congressmen and senators have seen this obscene, felonious material as well, yet they continue to fund the CIA and Pentagon as usual and do whatever they can to cover up the truth. These are the actions of traitors; these people who are allowing this abuse to go unspoken of while preaching to the world that this nation stands for "democracy" "freedom" and "liberty". The reputation and honor of this country are being thoroughly trashed. Notice in the article below detailing the latest atrocity to come to light (except on "American" TV) that the technique is of Israeli origin, called "Palestinian hanging". Americans will never hear of this on their TV, only pro-Israeli "news" is allowed to be reported on "American" TV. This is why the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians continues and why over $60 billion of American taxpayer dollars has been spent building luxurious accommodations known as "settlements" in the West Bank, which the American people have never seen on their "American" TV. Everyone in Europe has seen the country club like developments with swimming pools, but not the people who paid for them. Americans are instead treated to the occasional sight of ramshackle trailers which make the Israelis appear to be some kind of pioneers full of courage rather than genocidal squatters living in luxury while traveling to and from Israel on eight lane freeways which look like something out of southern California. All of it paid for by the unknowing American taxpayers. This country has now violated every international norm, every law, every treaty of importance. In so doing we are not weakening the United Nations but strengthening it, and doing so as an institution functioning as a means to oppose America. Instead of commanding the UN, this country is now faced with the whole world rallying together through the UN to defeat America. Rather than wearing the white hats and wielding the light sabers of good, we the republic of laser weapons in space and massive doomsday weapons of mass destruction are now the evil Darth Vader confronting the united federation of truth and justice. How can the whole top section of American society just sit here and be silent as this unfolds before our eyes? Everything is getting worse. That treasonous coup plotter Porter Goss is now threatening us with a nuclear strike, and doing so through an alleged threat made by cave dwellers! Think about it, powerful states like North Korea are *suspected* of having nuclear weapons. A powerful state of nearly 70 million intelligent, well educated people like Iran with the help of the Russians are believed to be getting *close* to developing a nuclear weapon. Porter Goss and yesterday George Will -shouting down Richard Clarke on "This Week"- are almost ordering us to believe that a bunch of towel heads living in caves can manufacture a nuclear weapon and detonate it here. Wake up! The Spanish showed us the lie that is 9-11 a week ago when they torched one of their sky scrapers and we saw that even when a building like this is thoroughly torched -as none of our buildings on 9-11 were- the building does not collapse. Think about it, and think quick and very soon because they are planning to nuke this country (probably Los Angeles). There is not much time. Say it loud: "'Al Qaeda' does not exist!" Iraqi Died While Hung From Wrists By US By Seth Hettena Associated Press Writer 2-17-5 SAN DIEGO -- An Iraqi whose corpse was photographed with grinning U.S. soldiers at Abu Ghraib died under CIA interrogation while in a position condemned by human rights groups as torture -- suspended by his wrists, with his hands cuffed behind his back, according to reports reviewed by The Associated Press. The death of the prisoner, Manadel al-Jamadi, became known last year when the Abu Ghraib prison scandal broke. The U.S. military said back then that the death had been ruled a homicide. But the exact circumstances under which the man died were not disclosed at the time. The prisoner died in a position known as "Palestinian hanging," the documents reviewed by The AP show. It is unclear whether that position was approved by the Bush administration for use in CIA interrogations. The spy agency, which faces congressional scrutiny over its detention and interrogation of terror suspects at the Baghdad prison and elsewhere, declined to comment for this story, as did the Justice Department. Al-Jamadi was one of the CIA's "ghost" detainees at Abu Ghraib -- prisoners being held secretly by the agency. His death in November 2003 became public with the release of photos of Abu Ghraib guards giving a thumbs-up over his bruised and puffy-faced corpse, which had been packed in ice. One of those guards was Pvt. Charles Graner, who last month received 10 years in a military prison for abusing detainees. Al-Jamadi died in a prison shower room during about a half-hour of questioning, before interrogators could extract any information, according to the documents, which consist of statements from Army prison guards to investigators with the military and the CIA's Inspector General's office. One Army guard, Sgt. Jeffery Frost, said the prisoner's arms were stretched behind him in a way he had never before seen. Frost told investigators he was surprised al-Jamadi's arms "didn't pop out of their sockets," according to a summary of his interview. Frost and other guards had been summoned to reposition al-Jamadi, who an interrogator said was not cooperating. As the guards released the shackles and lowered al-Jamadi, blood gushed from his mouth "as if a faucet had been turned on," according to the interview summary. The military pathologist who ruled the case a homicide found several broken ribs and concluded al-Jamadi died from pressure to the chest and difficulty breathing. Dr. Michael Baden, a distinguished civilian pathologist who reviewed the autopsy for a defense attorney in the case, agreed in an interview that the position in which al-Jamadi was suspended could have contributed to his death. Dr. Vincent Iacopino, director of research for Physicians for Human Rights, called the hyper-extension of the arms behind the back "clear and simple torture." The European Court of Human Rights found Turkey guilty of torture in 1996 in a case of Palestinian hanging -- a technique Iacopino said is used worldwide but named for its alleged use by Israel in the Palestinian territories. The Washington Post reported last year that after the Abu Ghraib scandal broke, the CIA suspended the use of its "enhanced interrogation techniques," including stress positions, because of fears that the agency could be accused of unsanctioned and illegal activity. The newspaper said the White House had approved the tactics. Navy SEALs apprehended al-Jamadi as a suspect in the Oct. 27, 2003, bombing of Red Cross offices in Baghdad that killed 12 people. His alleged role in the bombing is unclear. According to court documents and testimony, the SEALs punched, kicked and struck al-Jamadi with their rifles before handing him over to the CIA early on Nov. 4. By 7 a.m., al-Jamadi was dead. Navy prosecutors in San Diego have charged nine SEALs and one sailor with abusing al-Jamadi and others. All but two lieutenants have received nonjudicial punishment; one lieutenant is scheduled for court-martial in March, the other is awaiting a hearing before the Navy's top SEAL. The statements from five of Abu Ghraib's Army guards were shown to The AP by an attorney for one of the SEALs, who said they offered a more balanced picture of what happened. The lawyer asked not to be identified, saying he feared repercussions for his client. According to the statements: Al-Jamadi was brought naked below the waist to the prison with a CIA interrogator and translator. A green plastic bag covered his head, and plastic cuffs tightly bound his wrists. Guards dressed al-Jamadi in an orange jumpsuit, slapped on metal handcuffs and escorted him to the shower room, a common CIA interrogation spot. There, the interrogator instructed guards to attach shackles from the prisoner's handcuffs to a barred window. That would let al-Jamadi stand without pain, but if he tried to lower himself, his arms would be stretched above and behind him. The documents do not make clear what happened after guards left. After about a half-hour, the interrogator called for the guards to reposition the prisoner, who was slouching with his arms stretched behind him. The interrogator told guards that al-Jamadi was "playing possum" -- faking it -- and then watched as guards struggled to get him on his feet. But the guards realized it was useless. "After we found out he was dead, they were nervous," Spc. Dennis E. Stevanus said of the CIA interrogator and translator. "They didn't know what the hell to do." - - - - "Right before the 2004 election, about 10 percent of voters said their choice would be based on the candidate's 'agendas/ideas/platforms/goals'; 6 percent for Bush voters, 13 percent for Kerry voters. For the rest, the choice would be based on what the industry calls 'qualities' and 'values'. Does the candidate project the image of a strong leader, the kind of guy you'd like to meet in a bar, someone who really cares about you and is just like you? It wouldn't be surprising to learn that Bush is carefully trained to say 'nucular' and 'misunderestimate' and the other silliness that intellectuals like to ridicule. That's probably about as real as the ranch constructed for him and the rest of the folksy manner. After all, it wouldn't do to present him as a spoiled frat boy from Yale who became rich and powerful thanks to his rich and powerful connections. Rather, the imagery has to be an ordinary guy just like us, who'll protect us, and who shares our 'moral values,' more so than the windsurfing goose-hunter who can be accused of faking his medals." - Noam Chomsky, Z-Magazine, Feb 2005 - - - - - "What opinions the masses hold, or do not hold, is looked on as a matter of indifference. They can be granted intellectual liberty because they have no intellect.
