Legal row breaks out over Lockerbie trial document

DAVID Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, believes releasing a secret document to the Lockerbie bomber would cause "real harm" to the national interest, appeal court judges were told yesterday.

Mr Miliband has issued a "public interest immunity certificate" against revealing the paper from an unidentified foreign power, which has insisted it should remain confidential and be kept from lawyers for Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi. 

TVNL Comment: Terms like "national interest" are code speak. What does that mean? It means that having the public find out that their government lied to them about a terrorist act would expose them as liars.

How Labour used the law to keep criticism of Israel secret

The document reveals how the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) successfully fought to keep secret any mention of Israel contained on the first draft of the controversial, now discredited Iraq weapons dossier. At the heart of it was nervousness at the top of government about any mention of Israel's nuclear arsenal in an official paper accusing Iraq of flouting the UN's authority on weapons of mass destruction.

TVNL Comment: Here is more prof that there is a double standard when it comes to Israel. This is not conspiracy theory, this is clear conspiracy evidence.

Police concerned about order to stop screening

Security details at Barack Obama's rally Wednesday stopped screening people for weapons at the front gates more than an hour before the Democratic presidential candidate took the stage at Reunion Arena.

TVNL Comment: Trace the order and you will find out who really runs this nation. You will see who has the power to arrange assassinations and you will see the trace of rogue power that exists in our government.

Border Fence To Bypass Property Of Wealthy Oilman Who Donated $35 Million To Bush Library

DHS has no problem pursuing elderly and struggling homeowners. In the small town of Granjeno (pop. 313), however, the border fence would, conveniently, “abruptly end” at the property owned by Dallas billionaire Ray L. Hunt.

It’s not surprising that the administration would be hesitant to upset Hunt, who was a Bush-Cheney campaign “Pioneer” in 2000. More recently, Hunt “donated $35 million to Southern Methodist University to help build Bush’s presidential library.” In 2001, Bush appointed Hunt to his Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, granting him “a security clearance and access to classified intelligence.”

Meet Bush's Prison Nominee

Tennessee's next trial court judge might be a prison company executive who has less courtroom experience than most inmates.

Puryear has spent the bulk of his legal career at the Tennessee-based Corrections Corporation of America, the nation's largest private prison company. As its general counsel since 2001, Puryear has made millions of dollars working for a company that profits from the country's incarceration boom, particularly through his recent sale of more than $3 million worth of the company's stock.

Inside the world of war profiteers

From prostitutes to Super bowl tickets, a federal probe reveals how contractors in Iraq cheated the U.S.

Hundreds of pages of recently unsealed court records detail how kickbacks shaped the war's largest troop support contract months before the first wave of U.S. soldiers plunged their boots into Iraqi sand.

TVNL Comment: What this article does not say is that the Bush administration,  more accurately the Cheney/PNAC administration, acts as a business agent for the war industry. They are as much a part of this corruption as anyone else, if not a bigger part!

Justices Shield Medical Devices From Lawsuits

Makers of medical devices like implantable defibrillators or breast implants are immune from liability for personal injuries as long as the Food and Drug Administration approved the device before it was marketed and it meets the agency’s specifications, the Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday.

The 8-to-1 decision was a victory for the Bush administration, which for years has sought broad authority to pre-empt tougher state regulation.

TVNL Comment: Another example of how the Bush administration works hard AGAINST the public interest. This administration is a corporate lobby firm!

Army Blocks Public's Access to Documents in Web-Based Library

The Army has shut down public access to the largest online collection of its doctrinal publications, a move criticized by open-government advocates as unnecessary secrecy by a runaway bureaucracy.

"Almost everything connected to the Army is reflected in some way in the Reimer collection," said Steven Aftergood, director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the nonprofit Federation of American Scientists. "It provides the public with an unparalleled window into Army policy. It provides unclassified resources on military planning and doctrine." 

TVNL Comment: How is that for the great American patriots? Can you say "police state?"
