ACLU demands Obama administration release prisoner abuse photos

Despite a unanimous federal appeals court panel ruling last year that ordered the Bush administration to do just that, the outgoing administration asked the full court to rehear the case. But the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has yet to do so, according to a statement released Tuesday by the ACLU.

"The Obama administration's commitment to transparency is commendable," said Jameel Jaffer, Director of the ACLU's National Security Project. "We want to make sure that this rhetoric becomes reality." The Obama administration has not weighed in on the case.


Jesse Richard's Commentary VIDEO: Regarding "Revolution"

Jesse Richard, founder of, comments on the current mood of the nation. He explains that many Americans feel that the nation is ripe for revolution.

Revolution is illegal, but more importantly unnecessary. Jesse explains that the purpose of revolution is to change the type of government of a nation. For example the people living under a dictatorship may revolt in order to form a democratic government.

Well, the people of this nation do not want that. They simply want to restore their government to a legitimate representative body that obeys laws, represents the people and is not simply a tool of the establishment. No matter what the rhetoric, this is not revolution, nor is it revolutionary. It is common sense and it is quite understandable to most civilized people.

This commentary includes a special message to law enforcement and military personnel.

Restoration is not revolution. And restoration not illegal.


Pentagon knowingly exposed troops to cancer-causing chemicals, document shows

A newly leaked military document appears to show the Pentagon knowingly exposed US troops to toxic chemicals that cause cancer, while publicly downplaying the risks exposure might cause.

The document, written by an environmental engineering flight commander in December of 2006 and posted on Wikileaks (PDF) on Tuesday, details the risks posed to US troops in Iraq by burning garbage at a US airbase. It enumerates myriad risks posed by the practice and identifies various carcinogens released by incinerating waste in open-air pits.


'More bad news' on climate change

More bad news on climate change is expected as more than 2,000 climate scientists gather in Copenhagen.

The scientists are concerned that the 2007 reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are already out of date. Their data suggests greater rises in sea levels this century.


Detainees Say They Planned Sept. 11

The five detainees at Guantánamo Bay charged with planning the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks have filed a document with the military commission at the United States naval base there expressing pride at their accomplishment and accepting full responsibility for the killing of nearly 3,000 people.

TVNL Comment: This is why the Bush administration tortured people. It took 8 years to get a confession. Why do you think that is? It is because these people lasted 8 years in seclusion, with who knows how much sensory deprivation, sleep deprivation, drugs, hypnosis, threats to their families and outright torture, before they finally had enough. The 9/11 official myth lives on during the Obama years.


Obama orders Bush signing statements review

resident Barack Obama on Monday ordered a review of George W. Bush's guidelines for implementing legislation passed by Congress, at the same time saying that he would employ his own version of how he wants the government to follow the law.

In a memo to senior government officials, Obama said they must check with Attorney General Eric Holder before relying on any of Bush's signing statements for guidance. Bush often issued a statement when signing a bill into law, and critics said the statements at times showed government officials how to circumvent the law if Bush disagreed with it on constitutional grounds.


We Are Breeding Ourselves to Extinction

We are experiencing an accelerated obliteration of the planet’s life-forms—an estimated 8,760 species die off per year—because, simply put, there are too many people. Most of these extinctions are the direct result of the expanding need for energy, housing, food and other resources.


You Can't Be a Christian and Tolerate Torture

The whole point of giving the accused a trial is to sort the guilty from the innocent. While the effectiveness of torture is highly doubtful (American experts claimed it doesn't work but were ignored by the Bush administration), there's no denying that torture must include accidental torture of innocents if it is to be done in a timely manner. You simply can't wait for a trial before the torture commences.


Is the Future Going Down the Drain? Baby Boomers Going Bust

Among the adjustments forced by the new circumstances, perhaps the cruelest twist for many boomers is the need to join younger generations in the roommate queue. The housing crash has forced record numbers of late-middle age homeowners to take in boarders or risk becoming boarders themselves. From California to Vermont, home-share organizations founded to assist the elderly are scrambling to meet the demands of newly bust boomers.
