New law will force juries to give reasons for verdicts

Juries will have to give reasons for their verdicts when the Human Rights Act comes into force, the Lord Chancellor has been advised in a radical review of the criminal justice system.

The change, designed to stop thousands of criminals appealing against their convictions under the new Act, would mean jurors having to tell defendants step by step how they had been found guilty.

Lord Irvine of Lairg has already accepted the need for magistrates to give reasons in court for their decisions so they comply with the Human Rights Act when it is implemented on 2 October. Now Lord Justice Auld, a senior judge at the Court of Appeal who was asked by Lord Irvine to conduct a sweeping review of the criminal justice system, has suggested that juries will need to do the same.

Under Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), all defendants must be tried in front of an independent and impartial tribunal where judgments must be delivered in public.

Human rights lawyers argue that verdicts are not in themselves reasoned judgments and that defendants are being denied justice if they are not told the reasons for their convictions.

In his progress report, Lord Justice Auld says the best way to help juries produce reasoned decisions is by answering "structured lists of questions" already agreed by barristers and the judge before the start of the trial.

The jury's written answers, which could be given by their foreman, would show, step-by-step, how the jury reached its decision. Lord Justice Auld says written reasons would also help victims of crime understand why juries did not convict in certain cases.

An alternative solution, but less favourably considered by the judge, would be to follow the system used in France and Belgium, where the judge sits in with the jury and acts as its legal adviser.

Both of these proposals received a cool reception from lawyers yesterday. Stephen Kramer QC, chairman of the Criminal Bar Association, said the system would prove unworkable where jurors had come to the same decision for different reasons.

He also said that an obligation to produce reasons would have serious implications for the strict rules governing the "sanctity" of the jury room. Under the Contempt of Court Act 1981 it is against the law to "disclose" a jury's "deliberations, arguments or votes cast".

The international human rights lawyer, Geoffrey Robertson QC, said he did not think Article 6 of the ECHR intended juries to give reasons. "Juries are simply asked to find a defendant guilty or innocent. It was the settled intention of the British lawyers who drafted the Convention in 1951 that it did not apply to juries," he said.

He added: "Lawyers may want to argue the point but I don't think they will succeed."

David McIntosh, the vice-president of the Law Society of England and Wales, said: "Juries are simply asked to deliver verdicts of guilt or innocence. To ask for reasons takes away their ability to acquit in the interests of justice when the facts of the case are proven."

In some fraud cases, judges and barristers agree questions the jury needs to answer before reaching its verdict. Juries hearing civil claims, such as false imprisonment, defamation and malicious prosecution, are also asked to consider specific questions abut the way they will reach their verdicts.


Spook Wars Behind the Scenes.

There is a real war behind the banter of the presidential campaign.
Pitted against one another are two worlds of spies battling for power and influence.

George W’s backers have crawled out from beneath rocks and limbs to place his ole man’s pals from the CIA back at the epicenter in the spy game.

For the past eight years, the Pentagon has been top spook after President Clinton beefed up the Defense Intelligence Agency in exchange for support from military brass in his initial bid for the White House in 1992.

It’s easy to forget that Clinton somehow grabbed sweeping support from a host of retired military generals and admirals, including President Reagan’s Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Admiral William Crowe.

Why did the military establishment jump aboard the candidacy of a man who went to Oxford rather than serve in Vietnam?

Sources in Washington, who have been keeping close watch, tell me Clinton promised the boys at the puzzle palace, the National Security Agency [NSA], to clip the CIA’s wings and return covert operations to the Pentagon where it began during WWI.

President Truman created the CIA in 1947 after losing faith in the military’s ability to keep the president informed. Harry Truman didn’t trust the military as far as he could throw a bucket of warm spit.

For the past 50 years, the military establishment has been struggling to get its hands back on U.S. intelligence.

President Kennedy gave the Pentagon its first victory in 1963 by creating the Defense Intelligence Agency [DIA], a separate umbrella over Navy, Army, and Air Force intelligence.

Today, the DIA is reportedly 10 times larger than the CIA. CIA Director Richard Helms called the DIA, “America’s 900-pound intelligence gorilla.”

Retired Colonel Fletcher Prouty believes Kennedy’s move to defang the CIA could have led to his untimely demise: “The CIA hated Kennedy. they blamed him for the Bay of Pigs and, then, the DIA’s creation cut them off at the knees.” Colonel Prouty was the “real” source for prosecutor Jim Garrison, played by Donald Sutherland in Oliver Stone’s film “JFK.”

After Clinton was elected in ‘92, he named Admiral Crowe as Ambassador to Great Britain, the most prestigious diplomatic posting in status-conscious Washington.

In the past eight years, the DIA spy apparatus has continued to flourish. Washington insiders say covert operations are completely run out of the DIA’s headquarters at Fort Arlington Hall, Virginia, with no civilian oversight, and no direct accountability to Congress.

For years, the CIA director’s name has been a household word — Dulles, Helms, Bush, Colby, Casey. The Directorate of the DIA remains obscure, however, known to only a few.

Pentagonists are backing the Gore campaign, hoping to ward off a renewed CIA takeover on the coattails of a Bush victory. With “Boy George” in the Oval Office, his father’s ghouls will be out of the closet...again.

Under George Bush "Senior," the CIA was running the country. The President was formerly director of the CIA. His White House Chief of Staff, Frank Carlucci, once headed covert operations, as did Bush’s Ambassador to the UN, Vernon Walters. Bush’s Attorney General, William Barr, served as the CIA’s General Counsel.

There is little doubt that the same crowd with 322 etched on their heads (322 is the coded signal for Yale’s Skull & Boners) will once again run the show if Bush wins.

The end result will likely be a renewed series of bungles and blunders that the CIA has been famous for. President Truman labeled his own creation “an embarrassment.”

George should take note: covert action has little use in the future, where cooperation and good will is paramount to survival. ###
--------------------------------------------------------
My notes: (by Metalbird1)
Lester Coleman is co-author of "Trail of the Octopus."
He also was formerly a covert operative for the DIA and, as he says in his book, was given permission by them {the DIA} to infiltrate the CIA and DEA when they {CIA/DEA} approached him for covert work.

BTW, Coleman's thesis--a DIA vs. CIA war--dovetails with my saying some time back, that former CIA Director John Deutch may have been a mole for the military, which is where he spent most of his government service and was #2 man at the Pentagon as Deputy Secretary of Defense previous to becoming CIA Director.
What further bolsters that contention is what Deutch took home from CIA headquarters: CIA files on their covert operations.
It is something DIA certainly would have wanted, and a nice gift from a former DoD guy.

Subject: LES COLEMAN'S SENTENCE TERMINATED


From Rayelan:

This just came in from Les Coleman's attorney Mike Meehan -- I also talked with Les yesterday, it looks as if he could be released on September 15th. In case you don't know who Les Coleman is -- just go the http://www.rumormillnews.com and use either the search engine on the front page or the search engine in The Reading Room. Put in the name Coleman or Pan Am 103. Between the two searches, you will know everything there is to know about Les Coleman.

Les said in the phone call to me that the judge in Chicago who just terminated the Chicago sentence had read all the letters Rumor Mill News readers sent to the New York judge.

The moral of this story: "We can move mountains when we all work together."

I thank you and Les thanks you for all the work you did to help him and his family.

All,

I just received a call from Les, and his attorney in Chicago told him that   Judge Moran is going to terminate the sentence out of Chicago.   This will   terminate that case.   This is great news, and I do not think that there is   any better news.

PAYING HOMAGE TO THE TWO-PARTY MEDIA SYSTEM
By Norman Solomon   /   Creators Syndicate

    Isn't the two-party system wonderful? It really works!

    Every day, we hear plenty of opinions. Top Democrats and Republicans stay "on message," and usually the nation's major news outlets are in sync. The media landscape remains largely uncluttered, so most people won't get distracted by other perspectives and choices.

    The symmetry is dependable and perhaps reassuring. So, at the convention in Philadelphia, the TV networks aired interviews with Democrats who critiqued the speeches by Republicans. Later, in Los Angeles, the TV networks aired interviews with Republicans who critiqued the speeches by Democrats. What variety!

    These days, politicians and pundits are working hard to explain how Al Gore and George W. Bush differ. Meanwhile, journalists are apt to bypass the many points of unity. In the media zone, if the major-party candidates agree, the matter is pretty much settled.

    When Bush and Gore debate in October, they won't be arguing about their areas of agreement, that's for sure. The duo won't question the merits of NAFTA, the GATT treaty or the World Trade Organization. They won't argue over the global loan-shark activities of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund; they won't mention the devastating results for the world's poor.

    Nor will Bush or Gore challenge the massive power of multinational corporations, at home and abroad. As for the huge U.S. military budget -- the disputes between the candidates will center on how many more billions to lavish on the Pentagon.

    As usual, some would-be interlopers are standing in the wings. This year, the main one is the Green Party presidential candidate, Ralph Nader. Despite scant media coverage, his campaign has gained appreciable grass-roots momentum, and polls show him to be the strongest third-party candidate.

    But the Commission on Presidential Debates -- set up 13 years ago by the two major parties and amply funded by large corporations -- knows what's best for its backers. The commission is insisting on a strict 15-percent-in-the-polls threshold for participation, a requirement that seems sure to limit the debates to Bush and Gore.

    Despite its civic-minded pose, the commission has always been looking out for the interests of the Democratic and Republican parties. It arrived on the political scene in 1987 to hijack the nation's presidential debates -- while ousting the nonpartisan League of Women Voters, a group viewed by the major parties' hierarchies as insufficiently subservient to their desires. At the outset, a New York Times headline got it right: "Democrats and Republicans Form Panel to Hold Presidential Debates."

    Back in 1992, there was a breach in the two-party exclusivity. For several months, big media were taken with Ross Perot, who rode high poll numbers into the debates that fall. If there's going to be a populist leader embraced for a time by mass media, why not a pro-corporate billionaire?

    Democracy, we're sometimes informed, is a messy business. But let's not make it too messy. The two-party system streamlines the process.

    Democracy -- what a concept. No need to let it get out of hand.

    The two-party system owes much of its strength to the limitations of news media, which we depend on for information and analysis. Yet the American press has always included some journalists willing to write about the big holes in emperors' new clothes.

    In 1941, one of the country's more acerbic editors, a priest named Edward Dowling, commented: "The two greatest obstacles to democracy in the United States are, first, the widespread delusion among the poor that we have a democracy, and second, the chronic terror among the rich, lest we get it."

    Six decades later, many illusions and fears are helping to sustain the two-party system. At times, along the way, poll numbers are cited to justify constricting public discourse.

    We're told that Nader should not be in the debates because his support isn't high enough among voters. But sometimes, the popular will is flagrantly ignored: Polls consistently show that most Americans would like to see leading third-party candidates included in the debates. But, we keep hearing, that won't happen -- because Americans don't want those debates cluttered with any candidate other than Bush and Gore.

    Isn't the two-party system wonderful?

ARMS TRAFFICKING IN SUBMARINES?  THE DEEP SEA WAR FEW KNOW ABOUT.

Somebody mentioned the "Memphis"?
Here's some more sub background.
This stuff has got me feeling kind of sea-sick....

JERUSALEM (AP) -- November 16, 2000. Many Israelis are rushing to upgrade their gas masks as tensions mount between the United States and Iraq over U.N. weapons inspections.

Meanwhile, the aircraft carrier USS George Washington anchored in the Israeli port of Haifa. It was accompanied by the missile cruiser South Carolina and the nuclear submarine Memphis, all from the Sixth Fleet, for what U.S. officials said was a routine recreation visit.

``We should be prepared,'' said Baruch Satir, who was picking up a new mask in Jerusalem. ``It is like a poker game, because you never know what will happen. The situation in the region is getting hot.''

Among the weapons finding their way into the burgeoning international arms market are submarines. For example, last November The New York Times reported deployment of a U.S. nuclear submarine in the Persian Gulf following Russia's $600 million sale of three submarines to Iran. The deal went through despite U.S. objections, with the former Soviet republic citing its obligation to fill arms contracts and its need for hard cash.

The U.S. submarine deployment, ostensibly conducted to check out the sonic properties of the Gulf, highlights the importance of acoustic stealth to effective submarine operations. The obvious advantage a submarine has over a surface ship is its ability to travel, conduct surveillance, or initiate an attack without attracting the attention of other vessels. However, in recent years the technology used to detect sound underwater has improved dramatically, rendering older, noisier subs ineffective for many tasks and putting a premium on developing new "silent-running" ships.

Designing a submarine that can evade a state-of-the-art acoustic dragnet is no small trick, especially given the immense size of these ships. The pride of the U.S. fleet, the 171-meter-long (560- foot-long) Ohio class vessels, displace nearly 19,000 tons of seawater. Their counterparts in the former Soviet navy are the 171- meter-long Typhoon-class ships. These seagoing behemoths displace 25,500 tons of water, making them, by far, the largest underwater vessels ever built.

To ensure that U.S. submarines maintain the upper hand in these underwater games of cat and mouse, the U.S. Navy, with help from ORNL, has constructed the David Taylor Research Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and the Naval Sea Systems Command.

SADDAM'S SECRET ALLY: IRAQ & RUSSIA

"A Russian ship suspected of firing a laser at a Canadian helicopter in April waited for days off the coast of North America before entering U.S. waters in time to pass an outbound U.S. nuclear missile submarine," the Washington Times reports in its national edition, citing declassified Canadian military documents. Canadian surveillance helicopter pilot Capt. Pat Barnes and U.S. Navy Lt. Jack Daly suffered laser burns to their eyes as they observed the Kapitan Man in the Strait of Juan de Fuca north of Puget Sound in Washington State last April 4.

"In this particular incident, the Kapitan Man was observed loitering off the coast of Vancouver Island eight nautical miles from shore, an uncommon activity for merchant traffic," one Canadian report states. "When finally entering the Strait of Juan de Fuca, it was within 1,000 yards of a returning USS Ohio-class SSBN [strategic ballistic missile submarine]," the document continues. The Washington Times cites another document which says the Kapitan Man is not associated with the Russian military, "although she is often served in areas where SSN [nuclear attack submarine]/SSBN activity is being conducted." In the report, Canadian Rear Admiral R. D. Moore attributes the laser "attack" to "indiscriminate use of a [laser] range finder than a provoked or retaliatory action intended to injure."

The strong alliance that developed between Moscow and Baghdad during the 1970' s and 1980's can be directly attributed to the personal efforts of Saddam Hussein. Saddam played a principal role in forging an Iraqi 'Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation' with Russia in 1972, and when Saddam took over power in 1979, he signed an agreement on military cooperation and strategic consultation with then Soviet Defense Minister Ustinov. During the 1980's the Soviets helped Saddam consolidate his power and built Iraq into a regional military superpower. Given the deep and dependent relationship he formed with Moscow, it is clear Saddam would have never pulled-off a stunt as reckless as invading Kuwait and challenging the West without the Kremlin's approval.

The reality, however, is that Saddam's invasion of Kuwait was not only approved by Russia, it was planned and carried out under the orders and supervision of Moscow. During the six months prior to the invasion, Soviet arms deliveries to Iraq accelerated to twice the rate of the 1980's when Iraq was in an all-out war with Iran. Two weeks before the invasion, the Soviets launched a military reconnaisance satellite over the Gulf and sent one of their top generals to Iraq along with a small expert staff. This general and his delegation, along with the 8,000 Soviet personnel that were already in Iraq, provided direct 'Quality Edge' military assistance to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. Soviet assistance in planning and executing the invasion was made clear by the surprising similarity of the operation to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979.

"Moscow Builds Bunkers Against Nuclear Attack"
By Bill Gertz THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Russia is continuing a Cold War-era program to build deep underground bunkers, subways and command posts to help Moscow's leaders flee the capital and survive a nuclear attack, The Washington Times has learned.

Among the ambitious projects: a secret subway being built directly to the residence of Russian President Boris Yeltsin outside Moscow.

"The underground construction appears larger than previously assessed," a CIA report labeled "top secret" reported two weeks ago.

"Three decrees last year on an emergency planning authority under Yeltsin with oversight of underground facility construction suggest that the purpose of the Moscow-area projects is to maintain continuity of leadership during nuclear war."

George Bush, Skull & Bones and the JFK Assassination

Rodney Stich's book "Defrauding America" tells of a "deep-cover CIA officer" assigned to a counter-intelligence unit, code-named Pegasus. This unit "had tape-recordings of plans to assassinate Kennedy" from a tap on the phone of J. Edgar Hoover. The people on the tapes were "[Nelson] Rockefeller, Allen Dulles, [Lyndon] Johnson of Texas, George Bush and J. Edgar Hoover."

George Bush Sr.'s close friend and confidante is William Stamps Farish III, inheritor of the Auschwitz death camp fortune. In 1980, Bush designated Farish to manage all of his personal wealth in a 'blind trust.' Farish's grandfather pleaded no contest in 1942 to charges of criminal conspiracy with the Nazis. Farish's father was the chief executive of Standard Oil which in a joint enterprise with I.G. Farben opened the Auschwitz slave labour camp in 1940 to produce rubber and gasoline form coal. Standard Oil's dealings with Hitler continued, never the less, up until the end of the war. Prescott Bush and other known nazis and members of the white supremacist group, the Skull and Bones, were among the six directors of the Union Banking Group, a financial institution known to have financed the Third Reich. Prescott Bush, George Bush Sr.'s Fahter and other members of the 'Skull and bones' who sat on the board of he Union Banking Corp actively financed the National Socialist Party in Germany; other directors were Nazi banker H.J Kouwenhoven, managing director of the Bank Voor Handel which lent Rudolf Hess a quarter of a million deutchmarks; G. Groeningen, Nazi member of the steel cartel that also financed Hitler, and also two other 'Skull and Bones' members.

The creation of Hitler's Wehrmacht was thanks to the financing of international organisations whose politics allied with Hitler's, and this included the Union banking corporation.

Senator Harry S Truman stated with respect to this 'I think this approaches treason.'

On William Stamps Farish, the Third Reich & Race Hygiene: http://www.tarpley.net/bush3.htm

Quote from the above site ``The [government] must put the most modern medical means in the service of this knowledge.... Those who are physically and mentally unhealthy and unworthy must not perpetuate their suffering in the body of their children.... The prevention of the faculty and opportunity to procreate on the part of the physically degenerate and mentally sick, over a period of only 600 years, would ... free humanity from an immeasurable misfortune.''

Mars should remind readers of Hitler's attempt to eradicate the mentally and physically handicapped by shipping them off to the gas ovens of Dachau and Auschwitz etc.

In 1988, revelations concerning the pro-Nazi, and anti-Semitic backgrounds of the Bush presidential campaign led to the resignation and firing of seven officials One of these was Philip Guarino was a member of the Italian fascist group P-2. Another, Laszlo Pasto admitted being a member of the Hungarian fascist party Another of Bushes allies was Yaroslav Stetsko, an extreme Ukrainian Nationalist who was a the prime minister of Hitter's Galiciai (Western Ukraine) where more than 100,000 Jews were exterminated within two years of his regime coming to power. At the end of World war two, allied agreements on the treatment of war criminals such as Stetsko were that they were to be arrested on site. Stetsko is a known friend of Bush and has a photograph signed by Bush from a meeting with him, signed 'To the honourable Yaroslav Stetsko, With best wishes, George Bush'

George Herbert Walker Bush, whom the Bush family tout as 'old establishment

was clearly linked to the fascist cartels behind the third Reich Bowen States: 'The Bush family gained its influence through associations developed by their willingness to do anything to advance their station white the most powerful families they served.' Both George Bush and his father, Prescott Bush were members of an elite white supremacist group, the 'Skull and Bones,' George Bush Sr. is not known to have resigned and we must assume that he is still a member.

In 'The Immaculate Deception, the Bush Crime Family Exposed,' Russell S. Bowen. 1991, America West Publishers (chapter one), from which much of the above information is taken, Bowen concludes that the evidence exists that George Bush's father Prescott Bush was intimately associated with financing the nazis, both throughout Hitler's rise to power and throughout World War II

Another quote:

"Bush was working with the now-famous CIA agent, Felix Rodriguez, recruiting right-wing Cuban exiles for the invasion of Cuba. It was Bush's CIA job to organize the Cuban community in Miami for the invasion.... A newly discovered FBI document reveals that George Bush was directly involved in the 1963 murder of President John Kennedy. The document places marksmen by the CIA. Bush at that time lived in Texas. Hopping from Houston to Miami weekly, Bush spent 1960 and '61 recruiting Cubans in Miami for the invasion....

"George Bush claims he never worked for the CIA until he was appointed Director by former Warren Commission director and then president Jerry Ford in 1976. Logic suggests that is highly unlikely. Of course, Bush has a company duty to deny being in the CIA. The CIA is a secret organization. No one ever admits to being a member. The truth is that Bush has been a top CIA official since before the 1961 invasion of Cuba, working with Felix Rodriguez. Bush may deny his actual role in the CIA in 1959, but there are records in the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba that expose Bush's role..."

The CIA resented Kennedy's attempts to make the CIA accountable to congress. The CIA actively earns money from drugs, arms dealing and drug money laundering to support its covert activities. America's inner cities weep and are flooded with drugs, and the huge wealth of the CIA and its secret White Supremacist society makes it totally unaccountable to Congress and can engage in assassination and covert activities which the Oval office knows nothing of; they are a power unto themselves.

In the mainline media, those who adhere to the position that there is some kind of "conspiracy" pushing us towards a world government are virulently ridiculed. The standard attack maintains that the so-called "New World Order" is the product of turn-of-the-century, right-wing, bigoted, anti-Semitic racists acting in the tradition of the long-debunked Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, now promulgated by some Militias and other right-wing hate groups...

They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."

Sun Myung Moon and the Bush family are in good company; both are linked to drug money laundering; both are openly anti-democratic; both wish to seize power my any means; both are linked to arms dealing and to neo-nazism. Both think they know better than the demos; as it was with the English Christian tyrant whom American patriots shed blood to free themselves of

As H Ross Perot said to Bush in 1987: 'Well George, I go in looking for prisoners (Vietnam POW's missing in action), but I spend my time discovering the government has been moving drugs around the world ands is involved in illegal arms deals..I can't get at our prisoners because of the corruption of our own covert people.'

The CIA and their involvement in drugs trafficking and assassination http://www .foreignpolicy-infocus.org/briefs/vol1/cia.html http://w ww.publiceye.org/huntred/Hunt_For_Red_Menace-16.htm http://www .foreignpolicy-infocus.org/briefs/vol1/cia.html http://www.affinit y-systems.ab.ca/muse1/0393.html http://bur n.ucsd.edu/archives/ats-l/1998.08/msg00010.html

It seems clear that Bush's alliance with neo-fascist cult leader Sun Myung Moon (a/k/a 'Christ,' 'King of Kings', or as many would argue, the 'new Hitler,') is not coincidental. On Moon's evangelical anti-democratic views, he claims: 'there shall come a day when my words shall serve as law throughout humanity.' Moon's followers are adamant that when their new Fuhrer rules the world, things will be different. Moon's Korean company 'Tong Il' manufactures grenade launchers, Vulcan guns, M-l6 rifles and M-60 machine guns. In America, Moon's son makes Thompson machine guns and Khar semi-automatic pistols.

Moon has also purchased 40 submarines and claims that his god will destroy those who do not accept him as Christ.

Bush earns up to $13.6 million dollars per year from Moon, according to his IRS tax return. http://www.consortiu mnews.com/archive/moon.html

The 'sinless(sic)' Moon family and the Bush family appear to have obvious have similar political agendas.

From the point of view of an observer in London, it would appear 'here we go again.' The Christian Right in Germany were once convinced by an insane anti-Semite that they should hand over the reigns pf power to him. Americans choosing between an proponent of the Christian (sic) and political Right and Al Gore, appear to want to choose a man whose family is steeped in a nazi past and who receives funding from a known Korean neo-fascist whose followers admit, has no interest in democracy, but as a footstool to power and ultimate 'theocracy,' a kingdom under Moon, where opponents of the military church will be executed as will homosexuals and 'women who refuse to marry.

Has America gone crazy. All one apparently needs to do is claim' abortions should be illegal' and just about any person with known neo-fascist connections can get 60% in the polls. So much for the world's greatest democracies. What chance does the more righteous, idealistic and humanitarian Al Gore, who is of patriots' seed have, up against Bush who has raised $100million for his campaign, form known white supremacists and Korean drug money launderers. Was this the intentions of the founding fathers or does this make a laughing stock of democracy. And the US media; they have simply been ignoring Bush's nazi background and neo-nazi patronage; after all, he's a good old all American boy.

After all his father who was a bomber pilot was a hero. When his aircraft was hit by antiaircraft fire, despite the plane being built to crash-land on water, and despite George being the pilot, he parachuted out leaving the entire crew on board, the plane landed on water without a pilot and crew members died. This is the kind of hero that America loves and idolizes? And now his white supremacist son takes up the call.

Oh well, its only America; they fought and shed blood to rid itself of an English oppressor tyrant; it had been a long time; they obviously miss tyranny, racism and anti-Semitism. Perhaps they need some new blood, and one with ties to global neo-fascism both past and present. the patriots who shed blood for America are now weeping. Weep for your children.

Bush is in good company with Moon with regards to anti-Semitism Moon holds, like many that the Jewish innocents who died in the Holocaust, was allegedly the punishment of god(sic) for killing Christ. Oh course he forgets, as they all do that Christ was a Jew, that all who loved him on earth were Jews.

Moon would have murdered Christ, Moon's sons would have torn Christ's heart out and drank his blood, as his done Hyo would say, for Moon is like the Sanhedrin who begged Pilots for Joshua's death. And Bush, well he is like Pilot, a corrupt evil politician with much blood on his hands. He would say 'Oh Christ is too much trouble to keep alive, to much political dissensions; he'd call the CIA and say 'read my lips, gag him, bag him, and dispose of the body; it is nothing to do with me, I am not involved; for the CIA have their own white code of authority, their own financing from drug money and trading; they don't need to ask congress; much like the Gestapo of old, a private organisations; they would tell Bush, 'Oh well after Kennedy, Chris would be a drop in the ocean, and 'do you need any of our secret drug money today, I hear your sons got $100 million.'

And there it is; on patriot's soil a secret government organisation that laughs at congress; that stamps on patriots blood, for they know better than congress, they spit on patriots' memory that gave life and souls and family, that sacrificed all against an English Christian tyrant oppressor.

And there you have it. In 2000. The new Pilot and the new Hitler by his side, the seed of the Sanhedrin and religious hypocrisy and all that Christ despised.

Shame.

the souls of American patriots weep. And Bush will say, Oh I'm a great Christian like my forefathers before me; we will purge America of all immorality, and he an Moon share the same opinion about Hollywood and the media; oh that is just Zion; it comes for us; we must be ready. Oh hypocrites of old, I see your seed arise; how dare you use Christ's name to advance your nazi Cause, for Joshua the Jew will curse you for as long as you live.

Would Christ oppose abortion? I hold that he would not. the world's population is too big; Africa cannot feed its own children and Bush spends $100 million on an election and says that he is a Christian. A follower of Christ is easy to recognise; he would be crying 'Give your money to the poor; All you need is pair of sandals and a robe; no more; for Christ's kingdom is within us, not in the brood of vipers, those hypocrites who prepare for was and cry 'peace and Unification' as Hitler and Napoleon did; Oh no; they are not Christians; for Christ would not spend $100 million on an election; he would give it to the poor; but Moon is one who has exploited Africa's children; he raises money for Africa in Japan and finances global fascism like Bush and Le Pen and all the evil ones in South America.

And if the CIA and Moon would murder Christ and his political dissenters; I would expect them to hear Patrick Henry's noble cry,

'Give me liberty or give me death,' And as life's last breath would slip from them, they would scream Prometheus's pledge, 'I will not worship an unworthy god,' for the god of the hypocrites is unworthy, and death before dishonour is a better option.

For there is only one God. there is only one race, and no race can be master, if there is only one to choose from; for we are all God's children under Heaven there is only one Love. And none are chosen; for all are chosen; god's chosen people are not they who 'receive' Her love by birthright, but they who live and die in giving and in loving others, for you shall knew them by their fruits; they will be kind and generous to those around them; they will not flinch at the face of evil, for they will cry and protest and scream 'Justice' in the face of tyranny and evil and mock the tyrant oppressors throne; they will cry 'power to the people' and they will be of Athen's blood, of Pericles' ilk, and love the demos, not the tyrant oppressor.

For no greater love has he who lays down his life for his fellow man. And they who bail out of aircraft and leave others to die, well they shall not be considered among them as great, an they who belong to white supremacist organisation, well they would not be so loved by Joshua, for they are as the hypocrites of old.

And many will come to you in Christ's name saying 'oh end abortion, and let's have prayer in schools, and call themselves Christian. But Christ opposed public prayer and said that only the hypocrites do this so that they can be seen by men, for they already have their reward. Go instead into a room alone, and lock your door, and speak to our eternal Mother in private and she shall reward you in private; for only the hypocrites pray in public.

Gore and Lieberman are more righteous; they are of Joshua's kind, humanitarian; none is perfect only god; he who is without sin, cast the first stone, and Bush that hypocrite has nothing to say about those men.

Mars has much to say; Clinton and Gore have not been able to bring the CIA under Congress, and have allowed the neo-nazis to trample on the constitution, but this is a matter for a later time; for the Beast is amongst us, Bush is the former head of the CIA, his son runs for office; if he wins, bad tidings will come to America; Christ's' brother Islam will not like it; Africa will suffer more; Christ's name will be dragged through the mud, by the religious hypocrites and used for their own purposes.

Those who vote for Gore and Lieberman are righteous; they have the mark of Christ on their door. Those who vote for Bush,, that corrupt evil tyrant who would sell Christ for coin; they shall have a different mark upon their door and shall bear Christ's curse to the hypocrites of old.

America, get a grip; your tyrant is amongst you; he who tramples on your constitution is ahead in the polls; Bush spits on patriots blood, tramples on your constitution, despises democracy and beside him is Moon, and he will be worse; he means to implant his ideology through Bush and teach his 'pure (sic) love, ideology to your children in schools. For as Hitler said 'when you control the education of the children, you control the destiny of the nation,' And this they seek to do. America awaken; heed the voice of your prophets; do not do this evil thing; do not elect George Bush Jr.

Heaven cries out to you; the souls of the dead beg you. George Washington and the patriots plead with you; For Bush and Moon are all that they fought against when America shed blood to free itself from tyrant king who said he was a Christian and ruled in Christ's name.

America Awaken. Do not do this evil thing. Heaven weeps and screams a warning.

And if you will not awaken; peace will not come and you will cry, 'Did God forsake us?' for saviour will have come and gone unwelcomed, ignored and forsaken, for Bush and Moon would have murdered Christ and disposed of his body. 'We will have no dissention with us we know better than the demos, they would say, as all tyrant oppressors do.' 'There is no money to be made from him,' they would say; Christ's name is good to use however, but we must dispose of his teachings, for he would have us love the poor, and that would never do,' and all these things Bush and Moon would say as they plot their evil revolution of tyranny and lust for power, as it was in the days of old.

Oh America, vote for Gore and Lieberman; do not do this evil thing that you are about to do. Cry out to Bush and Moon, attack them with all your spiritual, moral, financial and intellectual might; fight them to the death if you have to; but do not make them king; they mean to rule you; congress will not be asked; the New Hitler's are amongst you.

Woe to America if Bush is elected. Woe to patriots' seed. Weep for your children. Bush and Lieberman must be philosopher kings, for they will submit more to the demos; they are more honest men, though none are perfect save God. And if Bush and Moon prevail; America will ruin, war will come. this is my prophecy.

It is forbidden to elect Bush. It is forbidden to worship the evil god of Bush and Moon. It is forbidden to elect a tyrant oppressor who hates democracy and thinks he knows better.

There is only one God, one race, the human race, we all God's children. There is only one love. In life, and in death, only Love is King So elect only kings of Love; humanitarians, those who love the demos and who weep for patriots' blood and are of Athens, not of Sparta.

The left is righteous; the Right are corrupt: Marx was idealistic and also wrong about many of his economic theories; however the worker's paradise he predicted is here to some extent; even the unemployed in most Western European countries benefit from free housing, income support and enjoy a higher standard of living than many upper-income group people in the third world; however this is at the expense of the third world, since the wealth of the imperialist nations have been exploited and expropriated from the colonies and from the slave trade; Africa still pays $500 million a week to the West in interest payments, mostly to Christendom, and thus the rich exploit the poor; this is not what Christ commanded; he said to sell all and give all to the poor; not to build marble Churches for public prayer (which he forbade); much of the money loaned has gone on arms deals and the into Swiss bank account of tyrants oppressors; very little has gone on 'actual' improvement of the economies of the nations or on anything which would benefit the demos. Mars calls for the cancellation of all third world debt; an arms ban to developing nations; and a 'third world' tax on all of the former slave owning and imperialist nations, to develop the third world and eradicate poverty. Mars will also initiate a UK political party called the 'Democratic Party' with the intention to eradicate third world debt and pour Western money back into the third world to finance democratic opposition candidates who oppose the current tyrants and to develop agriculture, industry and education, without going through the current corrupt dictators.

THE END OF RELIGION

1: Hate religion. Salvation is free. To know God is to know suffering; there is no bliss in oneness with God at this time; God is in torment. She hears Her children's screams of pain; end the pain. They who use the name of God and who have no Love, place a curse on themselves.

2: Love God. Mother God is suffering with her children; She weeps endlessly. Comfort Her.

3: End Poverty. God feels the pain of her children's torment. Share what you have. All churches must be sold in penance and the wealth of Christendom given to the poor of humanity. The youth of Christendom must invade Africa with love and wealth of nations. Teach them no religion; only practice Love. Love is the highest religion.

4: End all human suffering. God suffers as we suffer; be compassionate, love each other.

5: We are all brothers and sisters under Mother God. Love each other as you would love God. If your brother or sister is suffering, God is suffering with them. The priesthood is forbidden; only the universal priesthood of Love; do not call anyone True Father or True Mother, only God. Call one another only friend or brother or sister, this is enough. Celibacy is not required, find a lover and devote yourself to that person as to God.

6: Don't hurt anyone. Do not initiate violence. Abolish the death penalty. Serious criminals must do penance. They must serve humanity, not be inflicted with cruel punishments.

7: Make peace. Forgive your enemies, but remove the tyrant oppressors of Babylon; the fascists who despoil God's children for their own sake. Build democracies. Vote for those who are servants of humanity and who sit in submission and meekness to Love. No tyrant Christ is to come; all are fallible, even Christ. The kingdom to come is the kingdom of our eternal Mother's Love.

Fail to do these things and Mars prophecies that Babylon may fall to great evil, and great will be her fall. Only Love will conquer. Selfishness will despoil.

USA

Lee case: bold threats, shrinking investigation

Now, the case against the former Los Alamos scientist isn't even really about spying.

Peter Grier
Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor 8/25/00

WASHINGTON

He'd failed the polygraph. That's what the FBI agents told him, anyway. So what if he said he was innocent? He was stonewalling, like Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were charged in 1951 with spying for the Soviets.

"The Rosenbergs are the only people that never cooperated with the federal government in an espionage case," one agent told Wen Ho Lee during an interrogation. "You know what happened to them? They electrocuted them, Wen Ho."

With that extraordinary threat, recounted in a declassified transcript of a March 7, 1999, FBI interview, investigators made it clear to the Los Alamos National Lab scientist that he was in deep trouble.

But Dr. Lee hadn't failed that now-long-ago lie-detector test. The FBI agents were lying, trying to elicit more response. And he won't be tried for spying. He's been charged with lesser, though serious, crimes.

Nearly two years after the matter began, this once-obscure researcher sits in jail, awaiting a trial this fall as his family asks for his release on bail. The case against Lee, meanwhile, has become the incredible shrinking investigation. Call it a post-cold-war spy case, in the sense that it's no longer overtly about espionage at all.

"I believe that if they had a stronger case they would have moved on it," says Steven Aftergood, director of the Project for Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists. "As it is, I think they are charging Wen Ho Lee with more than they can prove."

This doesn't mean that Lee now appears a completely innocent victim. Even his supporters admit that some of his actions were wrong, even mysterious.

Why did he devote 40 hours to downloading nuclear data onto 10 computer tapes? What happened to most of the tapes? Why did he attempt entry into a classified area after his security privilege had been revoked - once at 3:30 a.m. on Christmas Eve?

Lee has offered no explanation. At one point, in his last 1999 FBI interview, he launched into a description of his teenage health problems to justify a 1988 memory lapse.

His lawyers depict him as something of a bumbling pack rat. They point out that he didn't bother to change the file names on some of the data at issue. He called the Los Alamos computer help desk for aid in moving some of the files.

"After four years of exhaustive investigation, the government has absolutely no evidence that Lee ever provided any information to any third party," said defense lawyer Mark Holscher at this week's bail hearings in Albuquerque, N.M.

And after three days of bail hearings this week, in which family and friends have pleaded for Lee's release on a multimillion-dollar bail bond, it is clear that even the importance of the information that Lee horded may remain at issue.

Early in the case, some investigators talked about the testing codes and other data on Lee's tapes as "crown jewels" of the nuclear era. This week, the assistant attorney general prosecuting Lee, George Stamboulidis, told a federal district-court judge that eventually "hundreds of millions of people could be killed" because of the scientist's actions.

But the defense was able to call a number of fellow nuclear experts who disputed whether the codes were important - and, indeed, whether they were even difficult to find.

An affidavit from Harold Agnew, a former director of the Los Alamos National Lab, said that the codes would be of little use to other nations for the development of their own weapons. "Further ... this information has been widely available in the open literature," read the affidavit.

The prosecution's case has been further damaged by its own missteps.

Prosecutors have emphasized that Lee failed to tell the FBI about a key 1988 meeting with Chinese scientists in a hotel room during an authorized trip to Beijing. Yet defense lawyers recently showed that Lee mentioned the meeting to his superiors in a written report on the trip.

And FBI agent Robert Messemer was forced this week to recant an assertion that Lee had lied when borrowing a colleague's computer to download his trove of data onto portable tapes. Lee had not, as Mr. Messemer first said, told the colleague he was simply going to write his résumé.

Is Lee the victim of selective prosecution because he is an Asian-American?

That is what Asian-American legal organizations assert. They say that recent congressional investigations into Chinese espionage and military development have created the climate that led to Lee's arrest.

And if Lee is granted bail now, after having been denied it on previous occasions, it will mean that the case against him is beginning to fall apart, some analysts say.

"To me, it would suggest some prosecutorial misconduct which might lead to eventual dismissal," says Mr. Aftergood.

PLAN COLUMBIA TO BE REGIONAL IN SCOPE. 
From Progressive Review / Undernews 8/24/00
SOURCE: http://www.narconews.com/pressbriefing.html

EL TIEMPO: The fear of neighboring countries [is] that Plan Colombia will be  an "obligatory theme" of the Summit of South American Presidents that will  be held on August 31 in Brasilia said José Vicente Rangel, the Venezuelan  foreign minister. He also said that "it's almost certain" that Venezuelan  President Hugo Chávez Frías will hold a bilateral meeting with his  counterpart Andrés Pastrana and with other regional leaders about Plan Colombia. "The fears of Venezuela and other neighbor nations before the possibility that large displacements of Colombian citizens toward border zones will occur are certain and documented," said Rangel. "We've already
had unpleasant experiences in this sense: months ago there was a  displacement of about 20,000 people from the population of Guabarra near the border of Venezuela due to the violence of paramilitary action..."

EL TIEMPO: High US administration officials conceded yesterday that the application of Plan Colombia will inevitably generate consequences for other neighbor countries. "It's a matter of common sense to recognize that in the means that the Plan is applied and makes progress in combating drug trafficking and in the search for peace it is inevitable to suppose that there will be an impact on Colombia's border countries," said William Brownfield, assistant secretary of state for the Western Hemisphere to El Tiempo.

FOLHA, SAO PAULO, BRAZIL: Brazil enters a state of alert to evade [the possibility] that the civil war in Colombia crosses the border. It will reinforce security of the 1,640 kilometers that border the two countries, re-equip the armed forces and monitor by satellite the lands that could be
used to prepare coca plantations. Confidential documents obtains by La Folha demonstrate that the Brazilian government fears the immigration of drug trafficking leaders and the Colombian guerrillas . . . "We are worried, more than panicked," said Defense Minister Geraldo Quintao. The government rejected the possibility of sending soldiers for a hypothetical  international force to support the Colombian government, an idea defended by some who are behind the United States. Logistical support was also rejected, such as using airbases and Brazilian radar . . . In a conference on August 10th between the Commission of Foreign Relations and National Defense, minister Geraldo Quintao affirmed that the most worrisome consequence of the Colombian conflict is the use of biological arms - the US pressures the Colombian government to test the fungus fusarium oxysporum to destroy coca crops. The problem is that it has never been tested for its possible
mutations nor in the Amazonic environment

EL COMERCIO, QUITO, ECUADOR: Yesterday, President Noboa placed expressed his
distance with the application of Plan Colombia. Upon his arrival in Bogotá, during the reception act with president Andrés Pastrana, he said that Ecuador will not involve itself militarily in this plan pushed by the US that will begin shortly. He will only support the policy that the Colombian
president applies...."

EL NUEVO HERALD: The military operations of the so-called War of the South that will unchain the first phase of Plan Colombia will be tacitly timed with the coming visit of President Bill Clinton to [Colombia]. The plan will be financed mainly by $1.3 billion that the United States will apportion and Colombian military authorities hope that Clinton comes to the country on August 30th with the first check . . . The first phase of Plan Colombia will be deployed from south to north, over a territory of 192,000 square kilometers that ends at the border with Ecuador and contains the entire
Amazon states of Caquetá and Putomayo. This is equal to one-tenth of all Colombia.... Beyond the money destined by Washington expressly for Plan Colombia, the Clinton administration has sent resources to form and train two or three anti-drug battalions, with 1,000 men in each, that will lead
the initial offensive with the support of 10,000 police, Air Force, Marine and Army troops . . . 18 Black Hawk and 42 Huey helicopters that will begin to arrive in the country at the end of 2001. Their manufacture has just been ordered and production will flow at the rate of two per month, said Montoya.
