Man freed after judge mishears 'guilty' verdict

Tapes show abuse of 9/11 detainees Hundreds of videotapes that federal prison officials had claimed were destroyed show that foreign nationals held at a New York detention facility after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were victims of physical and verbal abuse by guards, the Justice Department's inspector general said yesterday.

Newly-declassified documents:
US publicly criticized Iraq WMDs, privately winked "Donald H. Rumsfeld went to Baghdad in March 1984 with instructions to deliver a private message about weapons of mass destruction: that the United States' public criticism of Iraq for using chemical weapons would not derail Washington's attempts to forge a better relationship.."

All along, US gave Saddam high signs Thumbnail history of US dealings with Saddam Hussein
"The option of a U.S. red light that signaled clearly "do not cross the Kuwaiti border" is dismissed out of hand. No such signal was ever given by the U.S. There is also much evidence that coddling a tyrant became the better part of valor for three U.S. presidents -- Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George Bush (41)."

Did you hear what U. S. troops in Iraq are calling the Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopter that Hillary used to tour Iraq? "Broomstick One."
Capt. Ritchie

Thanks. I appreciate reports from the war zone.

 Personal note: When I went out to my little airfield Wednesday because I wanted to go up on the Wright flights' 100th anniversary, I was surprised to see several of my friends there. Without anyone mentioning it to anyone else, quite a few of us had decided there was something personally significant about aviating on that day. It was too windy. No one cared. We all flew, and we all had a fine time. The Wrights are our heroes.


FCC cites Do Not Call List violater but doesn't set penalty

Courts rebuke White House Two federal courts yesterday rebuked the Bush administration, ruling that prisoners at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base should have access to attorneys and U.S. courts, and separately deciding that President Bush had no authority to detain an American citizen arrested on U.S. soil as an enemy combatant.

Col. West would make 'sacrifice' again Lt. Col. Allen B. West yesterday said that if faced with the same situation in which he fired a pistol near an Iraqi prisoner during an interrogation, an act for which he was later punished, he would again make the same "sacrifice."

"Instant orgasm" device in final planning stages
I hope the State of Texas calls a special session of the Legislature to pass a law against the Orgasmatron, to be added to the current anti-obscenity law which specifies that it is illegal in this state to sell a device that can be used to stimulate the genitals. Please, Gov. Perry, save our civilization from crumbling, and get that law going! Our reputation as a prudish, backward, uptight state could be threatened. While you're at it, who not go ahead with a law requiring peepholes in the doors of all private bedrooms, so the state won't be inconvenienced when it needs to look in to enforce vital state sex laws.
