Obama sets up pointless meeting between Netanyahu, Abbas
Whatta freakin' maroon:
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday blasted Abbas and the Palestinian Authority for squandering a golden opportunity to move toward a Palestinian state by not taking advantage of Obama's commitment to Middle East peace.Palestinians 'disgraced' by Obama-led photo-op
Palestinian Authority officials told American media on Tuesday that US President Barack Obama had disgraced Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas by forcing him to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly earlier in the day. The brief three-way hand-shaking session was "a disgrace to the PA" and a "surrender to Israel," said one Palestinian official. Another called it "a desperate diplomatic step by the American government."Arab states offer Israel flyover rights for settlement freeze
A number of North African and Persian Gulf states have promised to give Israeli airliners flyover rights in their airspace, as well as other concessions, if Israel freezes settlement construction, according to a report on Tuesday in the Washington Times. An unnamed US official said that US Mideast envoy George Mitchell has received private assurances from representatives of unspecified Arab countries that they would also open interest sections in Israel and end a travel ban against Israeli citizens if Israel completely halts the building of Jewish settlements in the West Bank.Carter says Israel must stop building settlements
Saudi Arabia, according to the Times, will not offer flyover rights if a comprehensive peace agreement is not reached between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
The report came against the backdrop of a much-awaited trilateral meeting between US President Barak Obama, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and PA President Mahmoud Abbas in New York on Tuesday.

Palestinian PM cites support for statehood plan
Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said in an interview Tuesday that he has won broad international support for his plan to ready the Palestinians for statehood within two years.However, Fayyad sidestepped the question of whether the Palestinians would unilaterally declare statehood at the end of that period if a peace deal with Israel is not in place. He said that decision would have to made by the Palestine Liberation Organization and others when the time comes.UN General Assembly: Key Issues

After the CIA Torture Report
With the release of the CIA report and the Obama administration's decision to launch a Department of Justice investigation, our nation is in a struggle for the definition of what it means to be America in an admittedly dangerous and sometimes hostile world. Our worst enemies are those few individuals, on all sides, who act based on their emotions and in response to perceived injustice or pending national tragedy. It is time we learn from our historical mistakes born out of the Bush-Cheney counterterrorism policies and understand once and for all that the politics of fear, including the use of torture, have no place in this magnificent mosaic, the nation of nations we call the United States of America.Sergei Demidenko, Russian expert on Arab affairs, on the OIC
A.: Russia has observer status with the OIC and must retain its presence in this organization. Whether we like it or not, Russia is also part of the Islamic world because many of its citizens preach Islam. Russia must keep its eyes open and follow various political and economic trends in the Islamic world because this directly affects us.Musharraf Admits to Diversion of US Funds Against India
Q.: What should the OIC do in order to increase its influence in the solution of regional and global problems?
A.: OIC leaders are unable to change anything in this respect. An evolutionary process is a top priority. The organization will change, depending on changes in the Islamic world’s socio-political situation. Its role will also change as a result.
Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has said that military aid provided by the US to Pakistan for the war against terror during his tenure had been used to strengthen defences against India, the first such admission by any top Pakistani leader. Mr. Musharraf admitted that he had violated rules governing the use of the military aid, and justified his actions by saying he had "acted in the best interest of Pakistan." In an interview with a news channel, he said he "did not care" whether the US would be angered by his disclosure.India increases security after Israel, Australia warnings

McChrystal's boots was made for walkin'...
Within 24 hours of the leak of the Afghanistan assessment to The Washington Post, General Stanley McChrystal's team fired its second shot across the bow of the Obama administration. According to McClatchy, military officers close to General McChrystal said he is prepared to resign if he isn't given sufficient resources (read "troops") to implement a change of direction in Afghanistan:Adding to the frustration, according to officials in Kabul and Washington, are White House and Pentagon directives made over the last six weeks that Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top U.S. military commander in Afghanistan, not submit his request for as many as 45,000 additional troops because the administration isn't ready for it.
In the last two weeks, top administration leaders have suggested that more American troops will be sent to Afghanistan, and then called that suggestion "premature." Earlier this month, Adm. Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that "time is not on our side"; on Thursday, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates urged the public "to take a deep breath."
"Afghanistan's insurgency is clearly supported from Pakistan," McChrystal wrote, adding that senior leaders of the major Taliban groups are "reportedly aided by some elements of Pakistan's ISI." The ISI has long-standing ties to the Taliban, but Pakistani officials have repeatedly claimed to have severed those relationships in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks.The general and his Afghan labyrinth

Teenaged racists jailed in Russia
A gang of 10 racist youths has been sent to jail for a string of brutal attacks on foreigners in the Russian capital, Moscow, in 2008. Terms of between eight and 10 years were handed down to the teenage ringleaders, including a 17-year-old girl, Yevgenia Zhikhareva. Several younger members of the gang got lighter sentences because of their age. The gang was accused of attacking foreigners at random on the streets of Moscow. One was killed. The victims were from China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. They were attacked in February and March 2008. The gang members were accused of four attempted murders and one actual murder. The dead man was an 18-year-old from Kyrgyzstan. He was stabbed eight times by Ilya Shutko, 19, who was jailed for 10 years.EU must stand up to Russia in Georgia

OSCE Raps Kazakhstan For Seizing Opposition Paper
A court this month ordered the "Respublika" weekly to pay state-run bank BTA substantial damages after ruling the lender had lost 6.8 billion tenge ($45 million) in deposits because of a story the newspaper wrote about the bank.'Nazca Lines' discovered in Kazakhstan
"Respublika" said it was unable to pay the 60 million tenge ($400,000) damages and said it would challenge the ruling. But last week the court seized its entire print run and froze the publisher's bank accounts. "This is an evident attempt to remove one of the few remaining critical voices in Kazakhstan," the OSCE quoted its media freedom representative Miklos Haraszti as saying in a statement on September 22.
"The level of intolerance toward the free flow of information and opinion is troubling in light of Kazakhstan's forthcoming OSCE chairmanship in 2010," Haraszti added. A Kazakh Foreign Ministry spokesman declined to comment on those remarks.

The Central Bank of Nigeria’s assurance, earlier in the month, that its audit had brought about stability in the banking system, appears to be threatened as the State Security Service is trailing some chief executive officers and their management. Clearing the air In a reaction to a media report on the quizzing of some bank’s CEOs and the seizing of their passports, Segun Oloketuyi, the group managing director/chief executive officer of Wema Bank Plc, on Sunday, denied that his passport was seized by the State Security Services and that he was invited for interrogation as is being speculated.Economic Weakness Persists, Report Says
Wema Bank in a statement on Sunday, said: “Nothing could be more baseless, unfounded and farther from the truth than that the GMD/CEO`s passport was impounded by the SSS or anybody for that matter.” Some newspapers (not NEXT) reported that Mr. Oloketuyi’s passport and those of four other banks’ chief executive were impounded by the State Security Services, as part of the on-going shake-up in the banking industry. The statement, signed by Tunde Olofintila, Wema Bank’s spokesperson, said: “The management of Wema Bank Plc hereby totally and unreservedly refute the allegation that Mr. Oloketuyi’s passport was impounded. And in that stead, we affirm and most assertively and unequivocally too, that Oloketuyi is in possession of his passport.”
The CBN took over the affairs of Wema Bank for about 18 months up till June 10, when a new substantive management took over from the CBN-appointed interim management board, following the acquisition of a 40 per cent stake in the bank by SW8 Investment Limited. The bank also urged all institutions, including media organisations to exercise due diligence in discharging their responsibilities and avoid issues that can further exacerbate the economy, especially issues that bother on apparent falsehood.

Hey did you know that money grows on trees at the DOE? Yet another miracle of science!

It is a down payment in customer choice, but the expected return on investment is what has nearly every utility and a range of players and new partners clamoring for a piece of the market. “We are trying to move this in quite a rapid fashion,” Rogers said in a panel today on smart grid implementation. “As part of making the down payment is the expectation that these are high payout projects…It’ll take $150 to $180 billion in investments, but the payout is four or five to one.”Propaganda piece on Fusion Centers: Pact to Help Keep Country Safe

Charlemagne (742 - 814AD) was a Germanic King who ruled with the assistance of his Paladins, a legendary company of knights who formed the elite of the King’s army. These Paladins later became a source of inspiration for the romantic poets for whom they symbolised the highest virtues of chivalry and valour. The word Paladin was originally derived from the early Byzantine era to signify those who were the highest dignitaries of the Court and usually referred to a lord or chieftain, and later a knight errant - a champion on a quest for adventure.First Uranium resumes operations at S.Africa mine
