Newsweek apologized yesterday for an inaccurate report on the treatment of detainees that triggered several days of rioting in Afghanistan and other countries in which at least 15 people died.

U.S. General Apologizes for Desecration of Koran


Published: May 19, 2008

BAGHDAD — The commander of United States troops in Baghdad asked local leaders and tribal sheiks this weekend for their forgiveness after the discovery that a soldier had used a Koran for target practice at a shooting range…

DOJ issues statement “to protect American Muslims;”


Utilizing a secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) Dr. Paul L. Williams has been speaking to his Iranian contacts in their besieged Tehran hideouts every few hours during this crisis. Intrigued by photographs showing a burned Koran at the Tehran University, Dr. Williams inquired about the cause of the “desecration”. Paul was told that hundreds of Korans were destroyed by the “religious” police and militias loyal to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

What if a Westerner had done this?

DOD's cyber command takes shape

Defense Department officials are ironing out the details of a new military command in charge of the Pentagon's cyber mission. The department hasn't yet formally announced the creation of a cyber command, but officials have been speaking about it at public events as if the command is a certainty. For example, in a recent speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, Deputy Defense Secretary William [RAYTHEON] Lynn said the creation of the command exemplifies DOD's recognition that cyberspace is a new theater of operations, on par with land, sea and air theaters.

Lynn said the command will be in charge of military networks, and the Homeland Security Department will continue to take the lead on cybersecurity for civilian agencies. The private sector will be responsible for its own cyber defenses, he said. Some critics say creating the command would militarize cyberspace, an allegation Lynn denied.
Michigan: Brown Blasts New MSP Headquarters
An amendment offered by Sen. Cameron Brown and approved by the Michigan Senate on Thursday (June 18th) will forbid taxpayer dollars from being spent on the new Michigan State Police headquarters nearing completion in downtown Lansing. “At a time when our state is facing a budget crisis, it is simply irresponsible to move the state police from a building leased for only a dollar a year to one that will cost more than $3 million next year,” said Brown, R-Fawn River Township.

“Most shamefully, this move would come at a time when 100 state troopers are poised to lose their jobs, supposedly due to a lack of funds.” Brown, who previously chaired the state police appropriations subcommittee in both the House and Senate, offered the amendment to the department’s budget bill. “I am proud of the close relationship I have with the men and women who wear the state police uniform,” Brown said. “They have made it clear to me they do not believe this new building sufficiently meets their needs, and that they would much rather keep more troopers on the roads than move into lavish new headquarters.”

Located at Grand Avenue and Kalamazoo Street in Lansing, the so-called “Triangle Project” has been the source of intense scrutiny for several years. Brown has fought the building since Gov. Granholm first proposed it in 2007. The new facility was not competitively bid, and its limited size on the banks of the Grand River will not allow for the staging area, warehouse facilities, or helicopter pad the MSP uses at its current headquarters.

The building will also be unable to accommodate the state’s Emergency Operations Center or the Fusion Center.

Independent newspaper faces closure in Russia
An independent newspaper in a Russian province near Chechnya is facing closure on charges of carrying extremist statements — an accusation its editor denounced as an attempt to stifle criticism of police brutality.

Authorities have accused the weekly Chernovik of sympathizing with Islamic militants who have been launching almost daily attacks against police. Last week, a sniper killed Dagestan's top law-enforcement official, feeding fears that the southern region may be spinning out of control.

Chernovik editor Nadira Isayeva said, however, that officials were seeking to shut down the paper because they were angry over its exposure of police brutality and corruption — police conduct she said had helped swell the number of Islamic militants.

"The main reason behind the persecution of the newspaper is our journalists' opinion about the activities of law-enforcement structures, which differs from the official view," Isayeva told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Russia-Ukraine Tension Could Cause Another Gas Crisis

The European Union said it asked the International Monetary Fund and other international financial institutions to provide money for Ukraine to buy natural gas from Russia, to avoid a further natural-gas crisis that could arise within weeks. European Commission President José Manuel Barroso made the request at the end of a two-day summit of EU leaders Friday. "There is the risk of another major gas crisis in weeks," Mr. Barroso told reporters, referring to a two-week disruption of Russian gas exports to the EU in January that left some countries without natural gas for heating homes or running factories.

Russia is monitoring a possible missile launch by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), news agencies reported on Friday, citing a deputy chief of the Russian armed forces. "It is too early to say when North Korea could launch a missile -- this could happen any time," Lt. Gen. Alexander Burutin was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti. "Our monitoring facilities are on permanent alert, and we will trace the missile seconds after it is launched," he said. Burutin warned that his country will intercept the DPRK ballistic missile if it flies in the direction of Russia.

Obama puts critics of financial overhaul on notice
DIG THE LANGUAGE! He will have the power!!!!
President Barack Obama said Saturday that current financial rules exploit consumers and he put critics of his proposed overhaul on notice: "While I'm not spoiling for a fight, I'm ready for one."

Obama used his weekly radio and Internet address to defend his recent proposal, which is intended to prevent a repeat of the breakdown that has sent the U.S. economy reeling. But such major changes face a fight in Congress and opposition from some leaders in the banking and insurance industries.

In the address, Obama focused on a consumer watchdog office that he wants to set up.

"This is essential," Obama said. "For this crisis may have started on Wall Street. But its impacts have been felt by ordinary Americans who rely on credit cards, home loans and other financial instruments."

The Consumer Financial Protection Agency would take over oversight of mortgages, requiring that lenders give customers the option of "plain vanilla" plans with clear and affordable terms.

"It will have the power to set tough new rules so that companies compete by offering innovative products that consumers actually want and actually understand," Obama said. "Those ridiculous contracts — pages of fine print that no one can figure out — will be a thing of the past. You'll be able to compare products, with descriptions in plain language, to see what is best for you."

The Abortion Movement's best-kept secret
Meanwhile, the feminist pro-abortion group National Organization for Women (NOW) decried the killing as “the most recent in a string of murders in the service of the anti-abortion cause,” and called upon the US Departments of Justice and Homeland Security to “root out and prosecute as domestic terrorists and violent racketeers the criminal enterprise that has organized and funded criminal acts for decades.” They urged the government to put “the full resources of their two departments behind that effort.” National Abortion Federation (NAF) president Vicki Saporta went so far as to dub the last thirty years a “reign of terror” against abortionists.

Berkeley: Abortion opponent's actions have prosecutors seeking new injunction:
A Berkeley church elder is out of jail and back outside an Oakland abortion clinic to try to persuade women against what he calls "womb lynching," despite a judge's order to stay 100 yards away.

And so an Alameda County prosecutor went back to court Friday, aiming to convince the same judge to fortify his order with an injunction under a year-old city law designed to protect women seeking abortions.

A jury in January convicted Walter Hoye, 52, of Union City, on two misdemeanor counts under Oakland's "bubble ordinance," which bans being within eight feet of women entering abortion clinics.

Hoye chose 18 days in jail over volunteer work and a probation order to stay away from the Family Planning Specialists Medical Group on Webster Street. But Alameda County Superior Court Judge Stuart Hing issued the order anyway.

Somalia's parliament asks neighbors to send troops
Somali lawmakers pleaded Saturday for international military intervention within 24 hours to help fight Islamic insurgents in the lawless African nation, where fierce fighting has resumed in the capital.

Parliament said in a resolution that it needed foreign countries to send troops immediately, Speaker Sheik Adam Mohamed Nor told journalists. He did not give details of the vote. President Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed, who is also a member of parliament, did not take part but it was not clear why.

"We have, as a parliament, decided to ask the regional governments — like Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti — as well as the international community to intervene militarily in Somalia within 24 hours to help the Somali nation," Nor said.

There was no immediate indication whether Somalia's neighbors would answer the Parliament's plea for foreign troops. There is already an African Union force in Mogadishu, but its mandate is restricted to guarding government officials and installations.

US Fortifies Hawaii to Meet Threat From Korea

Don't Play Nuclear Chicken with a Desperate Pariah
Given North Korea's capabilities and its threatening rhetoric, it's important to ask: How likely is it to act on brinkmanship threats?

The short answer: likely enough to worry. Although Washington might want to facilitate North Korea's implosion and collapse through long-term isolation, a desperate Pyongyang would almost certainly not go down quietly. Military conflict could lead to a full-scale war on the Korean Peninsula in which the possibility of nuclear weapons being used, as Pyongyang has ominously threatened, should not be ruled out. The regime would do anything to survive.

FED FOCUS-Expanded Fed role may weigh on monetary tasks
Normally, the Fed is only allowed to lend money to highly regulated deposit-taking banks.

However, using emergency powers which allow it to lend to a wider array of institutions in "unusual and exigent circumstances," it has deployed tens of billions of dollars to rescue Bear Stearns and AIG in the midst of the financial crisis, to the chagrin of some lawmakers who feel it has strayed from its monetary policy mission.

Under Obama's plan, the Fed would need prior written authority from the Treasury if it wants to use those emergency powers in the future.

Widow of Slain Abortion Doctor Pushes for Tougher Laws
The widow of Dr. Barnett Slepian appeared in Albany Thursday afternoon to support a bill proposed by Assemblyman Sam Hoyt (D-144th District).

The Buffalo lawmaker said he's calling for harsher punishments for people who try to interfere with an abortion by committing acts of violence against doctors, clinical staff, volunteers, or patients. Such acts that result in physical injury would be elevated from misdemeanor crimes to felonies.

"New York state would be the first in the nation to recognize the serious nature of these crimes by passing a law that creates enhanced penalties," Hoyt said. Speaking along with Hoyt was Lynne Slepian. Her husband was a Buffalo abortion doctor who was shot and killed sniper-style in his Amherst home in October of 1998.

"In order to bring an end to tragedies such as my husband's and Dr. Tiller's murders, we as citizens of New York state need to take action," Slepian said.

Pro-life advocates have stepped out in opposition to the bill with national group Operation Rescue calling it "unconstitutional in America" to afford special privileges to certain groups of people.

Accuracy in Media has long maintained that Clinton Administration officials concealed the truth about both incidents.

The initiative to name the 3,412-meter-high mountain after the Russian energy giant was put forward by the region's head, Alexander Berdnikov. "The request will be sent to Russia's main geodesy and cartography department," the website said. Mountain climbers are expected to ascend the mountain, the highest in the Kurai range, to install Gazprom symbols this summer. Local authorities also plan to name after Gazprom a street in the region's capital, Gorno-Altaisk.

Kazakhstan Poised to Step into the OSCE's Chairmanship

Kazakhstan's Purge: The knock on the door
Purge? What purge?
We have no purges here.
Here we have only democratic change executed at the will of the glorious people.
We are ready for our Chairmanship, Mr. Putin!
FAMILY ties can make or break a person in Kazakhstan. They help when it comes to advancing a career, be it in business or in politics. Kazakh tradition requires you to support your relatives whenever possible. If your family lacks clout, an alternative is to attach yourself to a well-placed patron. One drawback with this system, however, is that it works both ways: if the patron falls for whatever reason, it almost always leads to the downfall of everyone connected with him.

This helps explain the shocking, unprecedented numbers of Kazakhstani officials and businessmen in trouble in recent months. Ekspert Kazakhstan, a business weekly, this month carried a picture of a faceless man in a dark suit and tie, covered with horizontal white stripes and the headline “Everyone is being put in clink!” Some older people talk of troubling echoes of Stalin’s purges in the late 1930s.

The UN Can't Even Promote Health

In the last two decades, the world has spent more than $196 billion trying to save people from death and disease in poor countries. But just what the world’s gotten for its money isn’t clear, according to two studies published Friday in the medical journal Lancet. Millions of people are now protected against diseases like yellow fever, sleeping under anti-malaria bed nets and taking AIDS drugs. Much beyond that, it’s tough to gauge the effectiveness of pricey programs led by the United Nations and its partners, and in some cases, big spending may even be counterproductive, the studies say.
