Bush emails not a priority: Congress budgets $650,000 to declassify Nazi war docs

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) -- which has yet to complete a program designed to properly store electronic records even in the shadow of millions of missing White House emails sent during the presidency of George W. Bush -- apparently feels a World War II probe is more important.

So does Congress, if their most recent budget is any guide. Congress has just budgeted $650,000 for the declassification of any documents relating to US intelligence agencies and their relationships with Nazi or Japanese war criminals.

TVNL Comment:The recent relentless campaign to garner sympathy for Israel by reminding everyone about the Holocaust continues. Hollywood, law enforcement agencies, and the US government seem to all suddenly feel that it is suddenly urgently important to find more evidence of Nazi crimes. Of course if you question the events in Germany...you go to jail.

CONGRESSMAN WANTS MILITARY AID TO ISRAEL REASSESSED

A US congressman plans to brief fellow members of Congress and the Obama administration about his recent trip to Gaza, saying the US should pressure Israel regarding border closures and reassess its military support for the Jewish state.

Rep. Brian Baird, a Democrat from Washington state, visited Gaza last week with fellow Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota and was struck by “the level of destruction, the scope of it, specifically the civilian targets - schools, hospitals, industry.”

Baird also said Israel had “apparently willfully destroyed any capacity of the Palestinians to rebuild their own infrastructure.”

Kucinich: Who Told SEC to "Stand Down" on Stanford Probe?

Chairman of the Domestic Policy Subcommittee, Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today sent a letter to Ms. Mary Schapiro, Chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) requesting documents that could reveal which government agency told the SEC to "stand down" rather than take enforcement action against the Stanford Group in October 2006 as has been reported by the New York Times.

Recent media reports have indicated that the SEC was aware of improprieties at Stanford Financial Group as early as October 2006, but withheld action at the request of another government agency.

TVNL Comment: At the "request" or due to an "order?" Big difference, no matter how you look at it.
