CIA and ISI together created Taliban: Zardari 11 May 2009 In a new revelation, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has said that the CIA of the United States and his country's ISI together created the Taliban. "I think it was part of your past and our past, and the ISI and CIA created them together," Zardari told the NBC news channel in an interview. In the interview, which was given to the NBC on May 7, Zardari also accused the US of supporting the military rule of Pervez Musharraf who was alleged to be taking sides of the Taliban.
Zardari: US, Pakistan gave birth to Taliban 11 May 2009 President Asif Ali Zardari says Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence along with the CIA conceived and gave birth to the Taliban. "I think it was part of your past and our past, and the ISI and the CIA created them [the Taliban] together," Zardari told the NBC news channel in an interview on Monday. Zardari's remarks come after the US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in a congressional hearing explained how the militancy in Pakistan was linked to the US-backed proxy war against the Soviets in Afghanistan in the 1980s.
Somali pirates guided by London intelligence team, report says --Document obtained by Spanish radio station says 'well-placed informers' in constant contact by satellite telephone 11 May 2009 The Somali pirates attacking shipping in the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean are directed to their targets by a "consultant" team in London, according to a European military intelligence document obtained by a Spanish radio station. The document, obtained by Cadena SER radio, says the team and the pirates remain in contact by satellite telephone. It says that pirate groups have "well-placed informers" in London who are in regular contact with control centres in Somalia where decisions on which vessels to attack are made. These London-based "consultants" help the pirates select targets, providing information on the ships' cargoes and courses.
McChrystal's Tillman memo contradicted citation --Pentagon had recommended that McChrystal be held accountable for his 'misleading' actions 04 Aug 2007 Just a day after approving a medal claiming former NFL player Pat Tillman had been cut down by "devastating enemy fire" in Afghanistan, a high-ranking general tried to warn President [sic] Bush that the story might not be true, according to testimony obtained by The Associated Press. Despite this apparent contradiction, Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal was spared punishment in the latest review of Tillman's shooting. On Tuesday, the Army overruled a Pentagon recommendation that he be held accountable for his "misleading" actions. In a sometimes contentious November interview under oath and via videoconference, Pentagon investigators sharply questioned McChrystal about the conflicting accounts, according to the testimony obtained by the AP under the Freedom of Information Act.
Gates Says McChrystal to Be Top U.S. Afghan Commander 11 May 2009 Lieutenant General Stanley McChrystal has been picked to take command of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said today. McChrystal, now director of the staff for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, will replace General David McKiernan, pending Senate confirmation. Gates said he asked for McKiernan’s resignation.
DoD sacks top US commander in Afghanistan 11 May 2009 General David McKiernan has been dismissed as the commander of US forces in Afghanistan as part of the Obama administration's new security measures for the war-torn country.

Probe into burns suffered in Afghan battle --Rights groups: Use of white phosphorus over populated areas can indiscriminately burn civilians and constitutes a war crime. 11 May 2009 Afghanistan's top human rights group said it is investigating whether white phosphorous was used [by the US] in a U.S.-Taliban battle that killed scores of people, which could further deepen controversy over an incident that has already sparked public anger. Doctors have said villagers wounded in the fighting had "unusual" burns. Afghan doctors told The Associated Press they have treated at least 14 patients with severe burns the doctors have never seen before.
'US drone kills eight in Pakistan' 12 May 2009 Missiles fired by a suspected US drone have flattened a house and killed at least eight people in Pakistan, close to the Afghan border, officials say. The attack took place in Sra Khawra village in the South Waziristan district. There have been three dozen alleged US strikes since August - killing about 340 people - most in the North and South Waziristan tribal regions.
Cannot stop aerial bombings in Afghanistan: Gates 12 May 2009 The United States has rejected Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai's demand to stop aerial bombings, saying such a step would tie the hands of the US forces in their war against terrorism in the country. "We can't fight this war with one hand tied behind us," US Defense Secretary Robert Gates told reporters at a Pentagon press conference. Mr. Karzai in an interview to the CNN last week demanded that the US "should stop" aerial bombings, which very often results in killing of innocent civilians.
After Afghan massacre, Washington says airstrikes will go on By Bill Van Auken 12 May 2009 In the final days of his trip to Washington, President Hamid Karzai demanded an end to US airstrikes in Afghanistan. In response, US National Security Adviser Gen. James Jones (ret.) insisted that the bombing of Afghan villages will continue, whether the country’s supposed sovereign government likes it or not. The juxtaposition of Karzai’s and Jones’ remarks speaks volumes about the nature of the US war in Afghanistan. It is a dirty, colonial-style intervention in which Washington dictates policy to a puppet government while unleashing military violence against an increasingly hostile population.
'We demand a complete end to the bombardment of our villages ... and we are very serious about it.' Karzai "very serious" on ending air raids: official 11 May 2009 Afghan President Hamid Karzai is "very serious" about a demand for foreign forces in Afghanistan to halt air raids, even though it was rebuffed by a top U.S. security official, his spokesman said on Monday. Afghans are furious about the [US] bombing of two villages in Western Farah province during a drawn-out battle last week, when homes full of civilians were hit.
American pilot, whose 'friendly fire' blunder killed British Royal Marine, will not give evidence at inquest because of Pentagon policy 12 May 2009 An American fighter pilot who killed a Royal Marine in a 'friendly fire' attack will not give evidence at his inquest, it emerged yesterday. Jonathan Wigley died soon after a U.S. F-18 rained cannon fire on a ditch where British troops were surrounded by the Taliban in Helmand, Afghanistan. But the Pentagon's policy of not allowing American personnel to appear at British inquests means the coroner will be unable to question the pilot in open court.
KBR harming US soldiers, once again: US soldiers forced to steal water in Iraq --'That water was two to three times as contaminated as the water out of the Euphrates River,' said former KBR employee Ben Carter. 11 May 2009 The 11 News Defenders discovered that soldiers, stationed in Iraq and during all phases of this desert war, say they did not have good access to water. "We were rationed two bottles of water a day," said Army Staff Sgt. Dustin Robey, referring to 1 to 1.5 liter bottles. And he said that wasn’t nearly enough... Turns out, at many similar bases, the water was supposed to be processed by Houston-based company KBR. In an internal KBR report, the company sites "massive programmatic issues" with water for personal hygiene dating back to 2005. It outlines how there was no formalized training for anyone involved with water operations, and one camp, Ar Ramadi, had no disinfection for shower water whatsoever. [US soldiers - as all of us - should be fighting KBR (and Xe).]
US soldier guns down 5 fellow soldiers in Iraq --U.S. soldier kills 5 fellow Americans at Baghdad base 11 May 2009 A U.S. soldier shot to death five fellow American troops today at a base in Baghdad, the U.S. military said.

US soldier, ex-Iraqi commander killed 12 May 2009 The US military has suffered another loss in war-ravaged Iraq after an American soldier lost his life in a bomb blast in the southern port city of Basra.

Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi Dies In Libyan Prison By Andy Worthington 10 May 2009 The Arabic media is ablaze with the news that Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi, the emir of an Afghan training camp -- whose claim that Saddam Hussein had been involved in training al-Qaeda operatives in the use of chemical and biological weapons was used to justify the invasion of Iraq -- has died in a Libyan jail... Libyan newspaper Oea stated that al-Libi (aka Ali Abdul Hamid al-Fakheri) "was found dead of suicide in his cell," and noted that the newspaper had reported the story "without specifying the date or method of suicide."
Cheney: Obama endangers the nation 10 May 2009 Former Vice President [sic] Dick Cheney on Sunday continued his verbal attack against President Obama, saying that the country is more vulnerable to a potential terrorist attack since the Obama administration took power. Mr. Cheney said that administration's dismantling of many of the policies and 'protections' instituted by President [sic] George W. Bush after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks -- including the planned closing of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba and halting controversial prisoner interrogation techniques torture -- have made the country more vulnerable to future attacks.
FAA Says No to Flight of Small Navy Plane Over Manhattan 12 May 2009 The Federal Aviation Administration turned down a U.S. Navy request to fly a patrol aircraft past Manhattan on Monday, two weeks after an Air Force photo shoot over the Statue of Liberty caused a brief panic.

'Chemical device' closes Lockport school --School officials said they followed [insane] lockdown procedures, which include prohibiting the use of cell phones in the school. 11 May 2009 (IL) Students at Lockport Township High School's Central Campus were sent home early today after a device exploded in the school, releasing smoke and possibly chemicals. School officials and Lockport police continued investigating the incident this afternoon. No suspects were in custody for the incident, which injured at least 14 and sent some to the hospital for treatment.
WHO: A/H1N1 virus severity could change 'in completely unknowable ways' 12 May 2009 The World Health Organization (WHO) on Monday issued some preliminary observations about the A/H1N1 flu virus, which has caused dozens of deaths and infected people in some 30 countries... Severity of Disease Could Change: Apart from the intrinsic mutability of influenza viruses, other factors could alter the severity of current disease patterns, though in completely unknowable ways, if the virus continues to spread.
Swine Flu Is as Severe as Pandemic Virus in 1957, Study Shows 12 May 2009 The swine flu strain that has sickened people in 30 countries rivals the severity of the 1957 "Asian flu" pandemic that killed 2 million people, scientists said.

EU wants 'Internet G12' to govern cyberspace 05 May 2009 The European Commission wants the US to dissolve all government links with the body that 'governs' the internet, replacing it with an international forum for discussing internet governance and online security. The rules and decisions on key internet governance issues, such as the creation of top level domains and managing the internet address system that ensures computers can connect to each other, are currently made by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a private, not-for profit corporation based in California which operates under an agreement with the US Department of Commerce.

In the wake of stress tests: Banks move to shake off government restrictions By Andre Damon 12 May 2009 Following last week's release of the Obama Administration's bank "stress test" results, several banks have moved to quickly repay money loaned to them by the government and to raise the capital required by regulators. The goal in every case is to dump any restrictions associated with government intervention and get back to the business of unbridled speculation.
Obama is poised to sell us out on health care quicker than he did with the polar bears. Obama's Push for Health Care Cuts Faces Daunting Odds --Mr. Obama is not cracking the whip on the health care industry so much as wooing it. 12 May 2009 President Obama engineered a political coup on Monday by bringing leaders of the health care industry to the White House to build momentum for his ambitious health care agenda. Mr. Obama pronounced it “a historic day, a watershed event,” because doctors, hospitals, drug makers and insurance companies voluntarily offered $2 trillion in cost reductions over 10 years... If history is a guide, their commitments may not produce the promised savings. Their proposals are vague... None of the proposals are enforceable, and none of the savings are guaranteed. Insurers and health care providers are lobbying strenuously against cuts in their Medicare payments that would produce savings of the type they profess to want.
Echoing Bush, Obama won't fight global warming with rules protecting polar bears 08 May 2009 The Obama administration, which promised a sharp break from the Bush White House on global warming, declared Friday it would stick with a Bush-era policy against expanding protection for climate-threatened polar bears and ruled out a broad new attack on greenhouse gases. To the dismay of environmentalists, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar refused to rescind a Bush regime rule that says actions that threaten the polar bear's survival cannot be considered when safeguarding the iconic mammal if they occur outside the bear's Arctic home.

Previous lead stories: US accused of using 'illegal' white phosphorus in chemical attack that killed Afghan civilians 10 May 2009 The US faced damning claims tonight that it used white phosphorus bombs in a battle with Taliban fighters that resulted in the death of scores of innocent Afghan civilians. Doctors in Afghanistan have found horrific burns on victims of the slaughter a week ago they believe could have been caused by the chemical, which bursts into fierce fire on contact with the air and can stick to and even penetrate flesh as it burns. Although phosphorus can be used legitimately in battle to light up the night sky, it is illegal to use it as a weapon. As many as 147 civilians were said to have died from American bombs dropped in the Farah district of Afghanistan during last week's battle.
Concern over white phosphorus use on civilians in Afghanistan 10 May 2009 Afghanistan's leading human rights organization said Sunday it was investigating the possibility that white phosphorus was used in a U.S.-Taliban battle that killed scores of Afghans. The U.S. military rejected speculation it had used the weapon but [Wait for it... here it comes...] left open the possibility Taliban militants did. The U.S. military used white phosphorus in the battle of Fallujah in Iraq in November 2004. Israel's military used it in January against Hamas targets in Gaza. Col. Greg Julian, the top U.S. military spokesman in Afghanistan, said the U.S. did not use white phosphorus as a weapon in last week's battle. Julian noted that military officials believe that Taliban militants [!] have used white phosphorus at least four times in Afghanistan in the past two years.
CIA terror suspects 'kept awake for 11 days' 10 May 2009 More than 25 of the CIA's war-on-terror prisoners were subjected to sleep deprivation for as long as 11 days at a time during the administration of former president [sic] George Bush, according to The Los Angeles Times. At one stage during the war on terror, the Central Intelligence Agency was allowed to keep prisoners awake for as long as 11 days, the Times reported, citing memoranda made public by the Justice department last month.
