"The terrorists will not succeed. Todays
bombings will not weaken our resolve.
We will defeat those who would impose their
extremism on us. We shall prevail."
-- Tony Blair, doing his best Churchill
Instead of delivering dreams, politicians now
promise to protect us from nightmares.
They say that they will rescue us from dreadful
dangers that we cannot understand.
And the greatest danger of all is international
terrorism. A powerful and sinister network,
with sleeper cells in countries across the world.
A threat that needs to be fought by a war
on terror. But much of this threat is a fantasy,
which has been exaggerated and distorted
by politicians. It's a dark illusion that has spread
unquestioned through governments around
the world, the security services, and the international
This is a series of films about how and why that
fantasy was created, and who it benefits.
At the heart of the story are two groups: the American
neoconservatives, and the radical Islamists.
With the attacks of September 11th, the fates of
both dramatically changed. The Islamists, after their
moment of triumph, were virtually destroyed within
months, while the neoconservatives took power in
Washington. But then, the neoconservatives began
to reconstruct the Islamists. They created a phantom enemy.

top lawyer quits
Says US "helping too much" with Saddam's case
Saddam's chief lawyer quit Thursday, saying Americans
were trying to control
the defense and tone down his criticism of the
U.S. presence in Iraq.
Some American lawyers in the defense team want
to take control of it and isolate
their Arab counterparts,'' said Siad al-Khasawneh,
an Arab nationalist who has often
expressed support for Iraqi resistance.

Since we know that Bush wants to invade Iran next,
one thing we can predict with near
certainty is that government reports on the London
transportation attacks will be linking it
with "known Iranian militants" or some such thing. Don't

Iranian passport is found near the bus explosion,
or a "How To" manual written in Farsi is
found in a flat formally occupied by Middle Eastern
types, or that a map of the London
Underground marked with three "X's" is found in

to end, its easy as pie

Why is Musclehead
spying on anti-war activists?
Army investigators began looking into concerns
Wednesday that the California National Guard
was engaging in domestic spying as a state senator
looking into the matter charged the federal
probe was being used to block his own inquiry.
One day after being denied access to a Guard computer
that had its hard drive wiped clean,
Sen. Joe Dunn said he would seek legislative subpoenas
today to gain access to the information
central to his investigation and lashed out at
military officials standing in his way.
Dunn launched his investigation last week after
the Mercury News reported on the creation of a
new National Guard intelligence unit that has been
given "broad authority" to set up new
anti-terrorism projects in California.
"If they continue in what I refer to as bunker mentality
here, it simply confirms to us that our
worst suspicions may in fact be true," Dunn said.
With the BFEE in a worldwide power grab, assume
your worst suspicions are true.

not in anyway lessened the chances that

At a time when support for Bush's bloody invasion is waning,
this is just the boost they need for people to say, "Maybe
Bush is right."

if you look at the war of confusion, chaos and unaccountability,
if you look at the hit on London - it all helps one evil empire.

LAPD "forgot" to give serious evidence to the defense
The judge is set to declare a mistrial in a civil
lawsuit into the killing of Notorious BIG,
bartcop.com has learned. Last
week, documents emerged suggesting an informant
had claimed to be able to link a police officer
to the killing. Police who handed over the
documents had failed to mention them to the plaintiffs
in the lawsuit, which opened June 21.
On Tuesday, the family called for the trial to
be shelved and for sanctions to be brought
against the city of Los Angeles, in the wake of
the new information emerging. Wallace's family
was suing Los Angeles and the LAPD, alleging that
LAPD officer David Mack likely played
a role in the killing. The policeman cited
by the informer was a team mate of Mack's.
Inquiries by the LAPD inquiry and the FBI failed
to produce results.
Any time a person or entity makes a "mistake" that
puts extra money (or power)
in their pocket, expect them to make that "mistake" again and again and again.
When crooks investigate themselves, they are "unable" to

evidence, as in this case.
cheating LAPD to pay family
Like a rat in a trap, the crooked LA cops have to give up the ghost
A federal judge has ordered the city and LAPD
to pay Notorious B.I.G.'s family "fees and costs
incurred as a result of defendants' misconduct" in
the family's wrongful death lawsuit. Judge Cooper
declared a mistrial in the case, rejecting the
city's argument that LAPD Detective Steven Katz had
forgotten about documents in his desk drawer
until his office was searched last month. Cooper said
the LAPD still has not turned over
other files to the plaintiffs, including about 15 personnel complaint
investigations into Mack.
Plaintiff's attorney Perry Sanders Jr. said the
family would refile the suit, but he didn't know when.
It is expected to accuse the LAPD of racketeering
and to name Perez as a defendant.
I think it's time the LAPD wrote the Wallace family
a check ro make this go away.

Black's stack was visibly thicker than Martz's.
"Mine's bigger than yours," Black quipped to Martz like

"It's not the size that matters," Martz retorted.
"This proves our point that the State's wholesale seizure
of his medical records was improper,"
Black wrote, trying to claim victory when he
just had his ass handed to him by Lady Justice.
Hey Roy, the state never asked for medical records
that weren't applicable.

Hepatitis to get a laugh
Do they really
find humor in this disease?
I have recently been informed that the new movie, "Bewitched",
with Nicole Kidman,
has a scene in it where a lecherous older character
was coming on to young things at a party.
A jealous older witch he had taken up with was
making the younger ones say things to turn off
the older character. One of the cute little
blonds apparently blurts out "I have Hepatitis C".
Of course he was taken aback, his mouth dropped open
and he turned away.
I dont know how many people will view this movie,
but the impression they will come away
with is that Hep C is primarily sexually transmitted. The
fact of the matter is, you have less than
a 2% chance of contracting Hep C through sexual
