TSA Administrative Directive: Opt-Outters To Be Considered 'Domestic Extremists'

If the information recently acquired by Doug Hagmann of Northeast Intelligence Network is accurate, then something really big is happening in America right now - and it’s most certainly not a step towards individual liberty.

According to Mr. Hagmann, he was contacted by a source within the DHS who provided an alarming memo detailing a new administrative directive agreed upon by DHS chief Janet Napolitano and the head of TSA John Pistole. The memo, according to Doug Hagmann, “officially addresses those who are opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures as ‘domestic extremists’.” '


Student Protests: Met Chief Warns of New Era of Unrest

Britain's most senior police officer warned today of a new era of civil unrest as the national campaign against university fee increases and education cuts gathered momentum.

Sir Paul Stephenson, the commissioner of the Metropolitan police, said the two large-scale student demonstrations of the past fortnight had been marred by a previously unseen level of violence, adding: "The game has changed."

His comments were seized on by critics, who said the hard-line rhetoric risked escalating tensions with students organising the nationwide grassroots campaign against education cuts.'


The Great Lie that Britain Would Suffer Outside of the EU

Britain would flourish as an international trading nation outside the economic shackles of the European Union, a leading business expert said last night.

Disputing the key argument of Euro-enthusiasts that quitting the EU would wreck the UK’s trade prospects, economist Ruth Lea said that independence from Brussels meddling would boost the country’s import and export markets.'

Angela Merkel in Eurozone Permanent Bail-out Vow

Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel has vowed to implement a permanent bail-out facility amid speculation over a break up of the 16-nation eurozone.

A joint statement with French President Nicolas Sarkozy said the two would propose replacing the existing fund that expires in 2013.

Meanwhile the head of Germany's central bank said the existing fund could be increased if needed.

And the fund's head has dismissed the risk of a eurozone break-up.'


Man Charged for Covering Head During Police Beating

A Miami man whose beating at the hands of police was captured on cell phone video has been charged with resisting arrest without violence, a charge his lawyer says came from nothing more than the man's attempts to cover his head from the blows.

Gilberto Matamoros, a 21-year-old youth center worker, says he was doing nothing wrong when police arrested him during a brawl in Miami's Coconut Grove neighborhood on Halloween. According to his lawyer, Ricardo Martinez-Cid, Matamoros was picked out of an unruly crowd and beaten unconscious by two Miami police officers. He had to be taken to a nearby hospital.'

Pentagon Report: Pakistan Army Agrees to NATO Military Presence in Quetta

The details of exactly what the coalition military presence in the city will be were not released, and will likely be couched in terms of “advisers” as with other US troops in Pakistan. The city of Quetta, however, is increasingly of interest to the Obama Administration.

In fact the US has been seeking permission to launch drone strikes against Quetta, a western city of nearly a million people, and Pakistan’s government had also recently agreed to allow CIA ground teams in the city.'

Iceland Elects Ordinary Folk to Draft Constitution

The sparsely-populated volcanic island is holding an unusual election Saturday to select ordinary citizens to cobble together a new charter, an exercise in direct democracy born out of the outrage and soul-searching that followed the nation's economic meltdown.

Hundreds of people are vying for the chance to be among up to 31 people who will form the Constitutional Assembly slated to convene early next year -- a source of huge pride for Icelanders who have seen their egos take a beating in recent years.

"This is the first time in the history of the world that a nation's constitution is reviewed in such a way, by direct democratic process," says Berghildur Erla Bergthorsdottir, spokeswoman for the committee entrusted with organizing the Constitutional Assembly.'


Canadian G20 Cops Cleared of Brutality Charges Because They Couldn't be Identified

Lying on the ground, police moved in and arrested the delivery worker. That’s when one of the officers allegedly struck him in the face, causing a fracture.

The 19-year-old’s case is one of six from the June G20 summit that has been probed by Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit.

On Thursday, the agency announced no charges will be laid against police officers for injuries to civilians during the G20 protests.

In Latimer’s case, the agency interviewed nine witness officers from the Toronto Police Services as well a civilians. SIU director Ian Scott concluded that while there was “reasonable ground” to believe excessive force was used, they were unable to tell which officer caused his injuries.'


Euro Slides as Portugal Bailout Pressure Builds

The European Central Bank is pushing Portugal to become the third eurozone country to accept an EU-IMF “rescue” because of concerns that a Portuguese debt crisis will sink its Iberian neighbour Spain.

The EU and eurozone fears that Spain, Europe’s fifth largest economy, is too big to bailout and that a Spanish crisis would tear down the European single currency.'


Turkish Prime Minister: If War Broke Out in the Region Israeli Citizens Will Share Losses as Well

Erdogan, speaking before thousands in its neighboring state, called on Israel to quit acting provocatively, recant on its blunders, and apologize to the region’s people.

“We in the region will unite and grow for what’s right and for the rule of law, and we will stand in the face of the wrongdoers and in the face of the wrongdoing.”

The Turkish premier assured that his country will continue to back the causes of Jerusalem and Gaza until all rights are restored.

“We will say this strongly in the face of the murderers, yes, you are murderers. Trust fully that we will raise our voices high against the tyranny, and continue to defend what’s right as long as there are people working in piracy on the high seas; and we will defend the rights of the innocent and oppressed".'


The 'War on Terror' is a Fraud

The US is today, albeit temporarily, the world’s foremost power. It is a country whose people are blessed with wonderful qualities of the head and heart. They are honest, hardworking problem solvers, large-hearted, decent and deeply innocent. The emergence of the US as a power with the greatest ever reaches in human history is the result of a conscious and sustained effort on the part of Washington to make America a great power.

Central to this nation-building process was the key emphasis on cultivating and creating knowledge of nature, and of the high-level of integrity and commitment of the average American. However, the evolution of the US Public State, as a genuine democracy with the ability to unify mankind on a broad basis, has been derailed consistently, and perhaps irreversibly, by corporate cliques that have taken the US on the path of global conquest and exploitation of the poor but resource-rich countries.

This path will eventually lead to USA’s defeat, beginning in Central Asia, and its rapid and bloody decline in a decade or two, unless, of course, the Americans can bring to book those criminal cabals which currently control, chain and exploit this great nation.'


Five Reasons to Care: Haiti's Sham Elections

Haiti needs legitimate leaders right now. Unfortunately, the elections set for November 28, 2010 are a sham. Here are five reasons why the world community should care.

First, Haitian elections are supposed to choose their new President, the entire House of Deputies and one-third of the country’s Senate. But election authorities have illegally excluded all the candidates from the country’s most popular political party, Fanmi Lavalas – and other progressive candidates. Lavalas, the party of former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, has won many elections in Haiti – probably the reason it was excluded. If this were the US, this would be like holding elections just between the Tea Party and the GOP – and excluding all others. Few Haitians will respect the outcome of these elections.'


China Calls US-S Korea Drill Provocative

China says the upcoming joint US-South Korea military drill will not help defuse tensions in the Korean Peninsula and has expressed opposition to any provocative behavior in the region.

As Washington and Seoul prepare for joint naval exercises in the Yellow Sea in response to the latest exchange of artillery between the North and the South, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao called on "all relevant parties to exercise the utmost restraint."

In a meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow on Wednesday, Wen said, "The international community should do more work to ease the tension of the situation," The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.'


Israel Slammed Over Railway Project

The bullet train line is supposed to run in 28 minutes from the suburbs of Tel Aviv to the illegally annexed East al-Quds (Jerusalem), where Palestinians hope to establish the capital of their future state. Israel Railways has budgeted USD 820,000 to plan the line, Maariv newspaper reported on Friday.

Some four miles of the proposed train route, parts of which have already been constructed, runs through Palestinian lands in the West Bank.

The residents of Beit Surik, a Palestinian village set to be severely affected by the train's route, are calling for international intervention.'


Kabul Blames UK for Taliban Imposter

Afghan President Hamid Karzai's chief of staff says British diplomats brought a fake Taliban commander to sensitive government meetings.

The imposter is said to have met with Afghan officials three times and flown on a NATO aircraft to Kabul.

It appears that he was paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to take on the role. British officials say the money came from the Afghan government not the UK.

But the British newspaper The Times says the imposter was planted by the UK's MI6 overseas spying agency.'

Amazing Speech About Terrorism

Putin Proposes Russia-EU Union

Ahead of his two-day visit to Germany, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has projected a vision of a 'harmonious economic community stretching from Lisbon to Vladivostok' in reaction to the economic crisis. Chancellor Angela Merkel, however, said she will "pour some cold water" on the idea.

Writing in German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung on Thursday (25 November), Mr Putin argued that more integration between Russia and the EU and even a "common contintental market" would allow them to overcome the effects of the crisis and prevent a new one from emerging.

"We should be frank about it: The global economic crisis has revealed both Russia and the EU to be economically very vulnerable," Mr Putin wrote.

Russia is still too dependent on its oil and gas exports, he argued, while the EU has lost its competitive edge in the world through its de-industrialisation policy.

A "harmonious economic community stretching from Lisbon to Vladivostok" would imply strategic alliances in key industries, such as shipbuilding, car manufacturing, space exploration and the pharmaceutical industry.'


Storm Over Tory Peer who said Benefit Cuts Would 'Encourage Poor to Breed'

A newly-appointed Tory peer was forced to make a grovelling apology yesterday after saying that cuts to child benefit will encourage the poor to ‘breed’.

The party’s former vice-chairman, Howard Flight, said taking the handout away from the middle classes will put them off having children.

But poorer people, who will continue to draw child benefit, will have every incentive to continue producing offspring. His comments sparked outrage and were immediately disowned by Downing Street.'


Spain, Portugal and Belgium Set to Follow Ireland into Abyss as Debt Crisis Threatens to Destroy the Euro

New fears have been raised about the future of the euro with the domino effect of faltering economies spreading today.

The latest nation to get sucked into the crisis is Belgium after market traders pushed the cost of insuring the country’s debt to record levels.

The rising cost of Belgium’s debt is now 100 per cent of annual national income. That is raising concerns the country could join Portugal, Spain and Italy on the growing list of countries that could be heading for a financial crisis along with stricken Ireland.'


99% of British Public Say 'Get us Out of EU'

A massive wave of public support was last night surging behind the Daily Express’s crusade to liberate Britain from the stranglehold of Brussels.

An exclusive poll conducted on the first day of our crusade showed an astonishing 99 per cent of people agree we should quit the European Union.

In an indication of the strength of public feeling on the issue, the poll saw the biggest ever response to a Daily Express phone survey, with tens of thousands of people swamping our switchboards.'


Obama Administration Weighs Indefinite Detention

Even if the Obama administration wanted to try low-level detainees in U.S. courts, it faces so much opposition from Congress it would be hard to do. And now, with the new Republican majority in the House, what was once very hard could become impossible.

Another option is to imprison terrorism suspects without ever going to trial — to just hold them.

And that's what lawmakers are looking at now. In August, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina quietly introduced a bill that would codify indefinite detention. He wanted to answer questions such as what kind of enemy combatant could be locked up without trial? How much evidence would government need to do that?'


This is Our Greatest Crime Against Ourselves

We’ve been waiting and watching for some time. We’ve been traveling through a period of fits and starts that has gone on longer than anyone expected; those of us paying any attention anyway. For the rest of us it’s just been an extended period of ever increasing, restless sleep.

It’s the time of The Apocalypse. I know I say this a lot but it is the most impressive feature of the times in which we live. Here’s an example of what I’m talking about and this is but a portion of the things that are about to be revealed and which are meant to serve as roadmarks and impetus for the awakening of humanity. This is the reason that certain powerful temporal entities are seeking to gain control of the past in order to continue the myth of their assumed status in the present based on a fabricated and fictitious past. At the moment, corrupt politicians are seeking to make it a crime in Canada to even criticize Israel.'


Children Have Their Community School Snatched By The Powers That Be

Reminded us of the Bowral Steiner Community School - anything that teaches people how to use their brains uniquely gets steamrollered by "The System" while anything that benefits the agenda of "The System" thrives. This school had 330 students until the bus companies upped their charges so that the school was no longer able to subsidise the cost. Not the fault of the bus companies - their rates went up because of the cost of fuel, increase in registration costs, environmental levies (soon carbon tax), etc, etc, etc. Even though student numbers were low, the school still had money to pay teachers, etc, but the bank would not allow them access to their funds.

We saw the writing on the wall when the Bowral Steiner school closed 2007 and it is coming to fruition. No one is safe when it comes to what they think are secure assets and funds. Look how quickly this school has gone from being a thriving place committed to ensuring children of Armenian descent don't end up in lives of poverty or crime to a deregistered, liquidated school. Makes you wonder if the Powers That Be (PTB) want those children to end up in lives of poverty or crime, doesn't it????'


$181,757... the Staggering Hourly Cost of Running Air Force One

It's the coolest perk going for the U.S. President, but a pretty expensive runaround.

Air Force One, the name popularly given to the Boeing 747 VC-25A which ferries Barack Obama around the world, costs $181,757 per hour, it has emerged.

The U.S. military confirmed the staggering figure, which could buy a house for the average American.'


Citizens Fight Back by Uprooting GMO Crop Fields

The practice of citizens uprooting fields of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) may be undergoing a resurgence, reports the blog Food Freedom.

In the 1990s, activists across Europe regularly uprooted fields of GMO crops. Farmers in India burned fields of Monsanto's Bt cotton (which is engineered to produce pesticide in its tissues), objecting that they had not been warned they were planting experimental crops.'


Urgent: Stop the U.S./S Korean Attack - Know the Facts and Take Action

Once again U.S. imperialism has chosen a holiday weekend time in the U.S., when workers are preoccupied, Congress is in recess, and any opposition or even questions are difficult to raise, to orchestrate a political and military crisis.

On Nov. 23, the government of South Korea mobilized 70,000 troops for a week of military maneuvers just off the border of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea. The DPRK said that these military maneuvers simulated an invasion of the north. The military deployment was provocatively held right off the sea borderline between the north and the south. This is an area considered to be disputed territory.

We can not be caught off guard. We need to discuss what actions we can prepare to take if this U.S. manufactured crisis escalates.

New and more provocative military maneuvers are planned by the Pentagon against Korea this coming week from Monday Nov 29 to Friday, Dec 3.'

Israeli Forces Brutally Batter Seven-Year-Old Palestinian Child

Israeli policemen severely battered a Jerusalemite child in Silwan, occupied Jerusalem, on Wednesday night breaking both his arm and leg, his father said.

Mansour Al-Resheq told the Quds media center in the Shaari Tzedek hospital that policemen chased his 7-year-old child Adam and savagely beat him then dragged him on the ground before leaving him in the street bleeding.

For his part, Fakhri Abu Diab, the head of the committee in defense of Silwan land, said that the child was suffering from several fractures and that the doctors were still checking his condition, noting that Adam was still screaming of pain, which pointed to more fractures other than those in the arm and leg.

He denounced the "savage act" on the part of the occupation forces, adding that he could not assimilate the idea of heavily armed soldiers chasing then beating a helpless child and dragging him on the ground.

North Korea has slammed the US-South Korea's military exercises, saying the drills could push the Korean Peninsula to a state of war.

France Borrows One Billion Euros to Pay Wages

The French government has requested more than a billion euros in emergency credit from its Senate to cover next month's payrolls for thousands of state workers.

The French Senate approved EUR 1.14 billion (USD 1.5 billion) on Thursday, the head of the Senate's Finance Committee Jean Arthuis confirmed while expressing strong reservations over the unusual request.

The credit is to be used to pay the December wages of thousands of employees in eight ministries, including education, defense and interior, representing more than a percent of state wage costs, said Arthuis, quoted by AFP.'


Israel Police 'Abusing Minors'

In a letter to the Israeli premier, a group of Israeli experts has criticized the police for detaining and physically abusing Palestinian minors.

The caution-laden letter, addressed to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, cited instances of "flagrant violations" of the law by the forces in their treating the minors, AFP reported on Thursday.

The children were faced with "threats and humiliation at the hand of the investigators ... which sometimes involved substantial physical violence," they wrote.'

Russia will let NATO take armored vehicles to Afghanistan through its territory under an expanded transit deal, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov has said.

The new deal was sealed at a landmark Russia-NATO summit in Lisbon last Saturday. The deal is expected curtail NATO's dependence on Pakistan as a transit country and boost the flow of Western military supply shipment to the front lines of Afghanistan.

The alliance already uses routes through Russia and neighboring Central Asian republics but the current agreements only allow for the transportation of supplies such as food and fuel.'

From a Sarajevo War Survivor:
Experiencing horrible things that can happen in a war - death of parents and friends, hunger and malnutrition, endless freezing cold, fear, sniper attacks.
1. Stockpiling helps. but you never no how long trouble will last, so locate near renewable food sources.
2. Living near a well with a manual pump is like being in Eden.
3. After awhile, even gold can lose its luster. But there is no luxury in war quite like toilet paper. Its surplus value is greater than gold's
.4. If you had to go without one utility, lose electricity - it's the easiest to do without (unless you're in a very nice climate with no need for heat.)
5. Canned foods are awesome, especially if their contents are tasty without heating. One of the best things to stockpile is canned gravy - it makes a lot of the dry unappetizing things you find to eat in war somewhat edible. Only needs enough heat to "warm", not to cook. It's cheap too, especially if you buy it in bulk.
6. Bring some books - escapist ones like romance or mysteries become more valuable as the war continues. Sure, it's great to have a lot of survival guides, but you'll figure most of that out on your own anyway - trust me, you'll have a lot of time on your hands.
7. The feeling that you're human can fade pretty fast. I can't tell you how many people I knew who would have traded a much needed meal for just a little bit of toothpaste, rouge, soap or cologne. Not much point in fighting if you have to lose your humanity. These things are morale-builders like nothing else.
8. Slow burning candles and matches, matches, matches

The Euro Game Is Up - Nigel Farage MEP


Pay Rises All Round on EU Gravy Train

Euro-MPs were handed an extraordinary £3,000 pay rise yesterday after EU judges ruled in favour of an inflation-busting increase for tens of thousands of Brussels officials.

In a controversial ruling, the European Court of Justice rejected a bid by national governments to cancel a 3.7 per cent wage rise for MEPs and EU bureaucrats.

More than 46,000 officials will now receive the pay rise in full, backdated to July 2009.

They will also be paid interest on the overdue sum.

Desperate Fight to Save the Euro (DON'T BOTHER!)

The euro plunged further into crisis yesterday as investors sold off Spanish, Portuguese and Belgian government bonds in record numbers on renewed fears that those nations would follow Greece and Ireland into the financial emergency ward, undermining confidence in the single currency.

The spreading contagion suggests that the markets now view the break-up of the euro as a realistic possibility, and that "shock and awe" efforts to shore up individual economies with huge bailouts have not succeeded in insulating their neighbours from infection. Spain, in particular, is regarded as being "too big to save". Should Spain eventually need assistance it would also imply a much larger UK bilateral loan than the £8bn offered to Ireland – perhaps £20bn or £30bn.

Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano admitted yesterday that body scanners would eventually find their way into U.S. public transportation, trains and boats, but Big Sis is already beta-testing technology that goes even further, by forcing Americans to undergo a behavioral interrogation before they are allowed to enter sports events, rock concerts and shopping malls.

“I think the tighter we get on aviation, we have to also be thinking now about going on to mass transit or to trains or maritime. So, what do we need to be doing to strengthen our protections there?” said Napolitano, indicating that naked body scanners and invasive pat downs will eventually become a necessity in order to merely catch the subway or ride a bus.'


Dispersants Cause Cell Death, DNA Damage

“We’re more concerned about the dispersant and the dispersant mixed with oil–the dispersed oil, if you will–than we are about the crude oil itself.”

Tests conducted in recent months by[University of Southern Maine Center for Toxicology and Environmental Health director John] Wise’s lab, using human cell lines, show that dispersants cause cell death and DNA damage, which has been linked to cancer and reproductive problems.'


Portugal on 24 Hour Strike - UK in Mass Riots

Irish Unveil Harshest Cuts, Tax Hikes in History

Ireland unveiled the harshest budget measures in its history Wednesday, a four-year plan to slash deficits by €15 billion ($20 billion) so it can receive a massive bailout from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.

The austerity plan axes thousands of state jobs, trims welfare benefits and pensions, and imposes new taxes on property and water. In all, it seeks to cut €10 billion ($13.3 billion) from spending and raise €5 billion ($6.7 billion) in extra taxes from 2011 to 2014.

Even Prime Minister Brian Cowen conceded the plan would hurt the living standard of everyone in the nation.'


America: The Silence of a Nation

U.S. and Britain in Partnership to Standardize Domination

It is an unfortunate reality that whatever policies are implemented in the UK are eventually implemented here in the United States. It was only a short time before Britain’s increased domestic surveillance, horrid healthcare system, and curtailment of free speech reached the shores of America.

Of course, the United States serves as a breeding ground for the exportation of its own brand of tyranny – i.e. militarized police forces etc.– to England. A more informed observer might view this trade-off of oppression as a more organized attempt at the implementation of a standardized system of domination . . . and this observer would be correct. But, regardless, it is true that even a casual observer can view the domestic policies of the country across the Atlantic as indications of what is coming to their own.'

TSA Turns Off Naked Body Scanners to Avoid Opt-out Day Protests

Anticipating a nationwide grassroots surge of protests against naked body scanners and aggressive pat-downs, the TSA simply turned off its naked body scanners on Wednesday and let air travelers walk right through security checkpoints without being X-rayed or molested.

All across the country, air travelers are reporting that the TSA simply deactivated the naked body scanners and let people go right through without a scan. "Backscatter scanners are off. No scan. No patdown." reported a traveler from the Seattle airport. "Backscatter machines aren't being used at LAX," reported another traveler. "They're all roped off."

Much the same story is being reported all across the country.'


Continuity of Government: Is the State of Emergency Superseding our Constitution?

Brooks was responding to a story by Alfonzo Chardy in the Miami Herald. about Oliver North’s involvement with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in planning for “Continuity of Government” (COG). According to Chardy, the plans envisaged “suspension of the Constitution, turning control of the government over to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, emergency appointment of military commanders to run state and local governments and declaration of martial law during a national crisis.”

Reagan had installed at FEMA a counterinsurgency team that he had already assembled as governor of California. The team was headed by Army Col. Louis Giuffrida, who had attracted Reagan’s attention by a paper he had written while at the US Army War College, advocating the forcible warrantless detention of millions of black Americans in concentration camps.“ Reagan first installed Giuffrida as head of the California National Guard, and called on him “to design Operation Cable Splicer. … martial law plans to legitimize the arrest and detention of anti-Vietnam war activists and other political dissidents.” These plans were refined with the assistance of British counterinsurgency expert Sir Robert Thompson, who had used massive detention and deportations to deal with the 1950s Communist insurgency in what is now Malaysia.'

Israel Erases Palestinian Village of Abul Ajaj from Map

Israeli bulldozers under heavy military protection demolished Wednesday morning the village of Abul Ajaj in the northern Jordan valley region as a prelude to expanding the settlement of Metsuwah that was established on Palestinian lands.

Korean Conflict Termed 'US Provocation'

Tensions are running high in the Korean Peninsula as the North threatens further attacks to counter what it has described as South Korea's provocations.

"(North Korea) will wage second and even third rounds of attacks without any hesitation if warmongers in South Korea make reckless military provocations again," Reuters reported, quoting a statement by Pyongyang's military read by North Korean KCNA on Thursday.

A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Wednesday saying that the South carried out live-fire exercises in areas near the West Sea island of Yeonpyeong at 1300 hours local time Tuesday, the North's official news agency reported.

“Yeonpyeong Islet is located deep inside the territorial waters of the DPRK away from the maritime military demarcation line. If live shells are fired from the islet, they are bound to drop inside the territorial waters of the DPRK side no matter in which direction they are fired because of such geographical features".'

Largest-Ever Insider Trading Probe Targets Goldman Sachs

Insider-trading charges are being prepared against a vast network of consultants and traders across the US financial industry in a years-long probe that a report suggests will reveal a pervasive culture of backroom dealing.

The investigation could be the largest insider-trading probe in US history, The Wall Street Journal said Saturday citing people close to the issue, with federal officials examining if multiple, organized insider-trading rings reaped illegal profits of tens of millions of dollars.

Some charges could be brought before the end of the year, the Journal said.'

Nicolas Sarkozy 'Calls Journalist a Paedophile'

When pointedly quizzed about his alleged role in the affair during a Nato summit in Lisbon last Friday, Mr Sarkozy first lashed out at journalists, saying: "You talk rubbish, you verify nothing." According to l'Express magazine, he then launched into a tirade against the reporter, saying: "You are a paedophile, I'm deeply convinced; I've seen the secret services but I won't tell you which ones. I've seen someone but I won't tell you who and it was oral. But I'm deeply convinced that you're a paedophile!"

The President's remarks were supposed to mock the, in his view, slanderous claims by Charles Millon, the former defence minister, who last week said he was "deeply convinced" that kickbacks to French politicians had taken place.'

There are also a four more ancient structures on the site, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, Bosnian Pyramid of the Dragon, Bosnian Pyramid of the Love and Temple of the Earth, with a paved entrance plateau and discovered underground tunnels.'

Haiti: One More Shameful UN Betrayal

Almost everyone now accepts that the United Nations brought cholera to Haiti last month. The evidence is overwhelming and many experts (including the head of Harvard University's microbiology department, cholera specialist John Mekalanos) made up their minds to that effect several weeks ago.

Poverty and a lack of rudimentary infrastructure compels much of Haiti's population to drink untreated water, but there has been no cholera there for decades. Haitians have no experience with – and therefore little resistance to – the disease. All the bacterial samples taken from Haitian patients are identical and match a strain endemic in southern Asia. Cholera broke out in Nepal over the summer, and in mid-October a new detachment of Nepalese UN troops arrived at their Haitian base in Mirebalais, near the Artibonite river. A few days later Haitians living downstream of the base started to get sick and the disease spread rapidly throughout the region. On 27 October, journalists visited Mirebalais and found evidence that untreated waste from UN latrines was pouring directly into an Artibonite tributary.'

Is Wi-Fi Killing Trees? Dutch Study Shows Leaves Dying After Exposure

Radiation from Wi-Fi networks may be damaging trees, according to a new study.

Research in Holland showed that trees that were planted in close proximity to a wireless router suffered from damaged bark and dying leaves.

The alarming study will raise fears that Wi-Fi radiation may also be having an effect on the human body and will lend weight to parents and teachers who have campaigned to stop wireless routers being installed in schools.'
