Legal surveillance, not illegal eavesdropping, stopped the U.K. terrorist attacks

Glenn Greenwald | To the extent that U.S. law enforcement agents attempted to assist in the pre-arrest surveillance of these terrorists, they were able to eavesdrop on the conversations of scores of individuals inside the U.S. by obtaining the approval of the FISA court, just as the law requires: more...  1 Comments

Be aware of the time. It is now 1984.

From Joe | "At a time such as this—in the midst of spectacular claims from London and Washington, a media barrage supporting them, and a massive disruption of commercial flights resulting from extreme security measures—it is all the more imperative that people not suspend their capacity for critical thought and political judgement."

DMI Blog |

Protest Condi Rice TODAY at the UN: Noon until...

World Can't Wait | Emergency p rotest today: NOON - Dag Hammarskjold Plaza across the street from the United Nations (E. 47th St. & 1st Ave.)

Over 1,000 dead, 1 in 4 Lebanese displaced from their homes, and a whole country destroyed: these are war crimes. And the Bush regime has given its full support, encouragement, and weapons to Israel to carry out atrocities. The Bush regime's "war on terrorism" has meant nothing but torture, bombs, and devastation for the people of the Middle East. And we must take responsibility to STOP the injustices being committed by our government in our names.

TODAY: Condoleezza Rice will be at the UN working out a vote on a
resolution supposedly to end the conflict. From the beginning of Israel's attack on Lebanon, the Bush regime has worked to prevent any ceasefire or even the mildest of restraint on Israel, and has been whipping up further justification for attacking Iran. War criminal Condoleezza Rice has no right to determine any measures taken in the Middle East conflict and must be protested today.

The World Can't Wait - Drive Out the Bush Regime will be outside of the UN this afternoon and demanding these war crimes be brought to a halt. If you're in NYC and have a conscience, be there.

Britain’s airline terror plot: Questions that need to be answered

by the wsws editorial board | This article is available as a PDF leaflet to download and distribute
The claim that American and British security forces have thwarted a terrorist plot to blow up commercial flights between Britain and the United States should not be accepted uncritically. It is impossible to determine at this point whether or not such an attack was in the offing, although the mass media have, as usual, reported the assertions of the British and American governments as indisputable fact, without bothering to ask for any specific information that would substantiate the official story. more...  2 Comments

Lieberman’s Defeat and the State of American Politics

Barry Grey | The response of Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman and the Democratic Party leadership to Lieberman’s defeat in Tuesday’s Democratic primary election says a great deal about the politics of the Democratic Party and the state of American politics as a whole.

Lieberman, a three-term senator and the Democratic vice presidential candidate in 2000, lost by a 52 to 48 percent margin to Ned Lamont, an heir to the Lamont family fortune and multi-millionaire businessman, who ran as an opponent of the war in Iraq.
