Torture Taxis and the Rendition Program

News on the ProgramDespite the Bush administration's assertion that it transferred the sum total of men, 14, who were in the rendition program to Guantánamo, many more men remain unaccounted for. Ghost Prisoner is a Human Rights Watch report of what happened to Marwan Jabour and lists others who have been captured and whose whereabouts are still unknown.

The Italian government has indicted 25 CIA agents and a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force in the kidnapping of an imam, Osama Mustafa Hassan Nasr. German prosecutors have issued warrants for 13 CIA agents whom they suspect of kidnapping Khaled el-Masri. (See the 2/17 Washington Post article.)

What You Can Do: Representative Edward Markey (D-MA) plans to reintroduce his Torture Outsourcing Prevention Act (H.R. 952 when it was introduced in the 109th Congress), which would prohibit the United States from transferring people to countries where torture or other inhuman treatment is known to occur for purposes of interrogation or detention. Markey is currently seeking co-sponsors.

Grassroots activists are actively involved in shutting the program down:

Mystery Uncovered in Portland, Oregon—Unraveling the mystery of the Gulfstream V, which has ferried hooded and shackled passengers to various prisons all over Europe, is retired Rutgers professor Michael Munk. He has been ramping up the pressure on Portland attorney Scott Caplan, who appears to be the Northwest link to the CIA and its torture taxis. Caplan’s phantom client, Leonard Bayard, is listed as owner of the Gulfstream V. Recently, Munk convinced the Oregon State Bar to start an investigation into whether attorney Scott Caplan has represented Bayard Foreign Marketing, under false pretenses.

Munk recently found two documents allegedly signed by Bayard, with wildly differing slants and contours in the signatures: another clue that the company is actually a CIA front. You can see the signatures in this report from KATU-television, or look at the BORDC website: http://bordc.org/threats/flights.php.

Work Continues in North Carolina—On February 22, the North Carolina Stop Torture Coalition held a Vigil at US 1 and NC 56 highways when President Bush was taking a flight a helicopter from RDU to Novozymes. The vigil and street theater activities were covered by News 14 Charlotte. (Click on "Bush protestors" to view the video.)

USA Building Atomic Warheads
Mood:  loud
Now Playing: NEOCONS to build nuke Warhead and Lie about Iran / N. Korea
Topic: WAR



I can not believe I just read these two headlines on Yahoo News today.

I am am dumbfounded and amazed that these headlines are even being written. Where is citizen outrage?

Where is the masses that should step up and say "this is wrong and unacceptable"?

The first link is about how the USA has faulty <again?>weapon information this time about Iran and N. Korea.

See the link and short paragraph I copied from the news cast on the faulty information: 

VIENNA, Austria - New doubts are arising about the accuracy of U.S. intelligence on the nuclear programs in North Korea and Iran, only a few years after faulty warnings about weapons of mass destruction helped President Bush justify the invasion of Iraq.

North Korea agreed earlier this month to dismantle its plutonium-producing nuclear facilities in exchange for economic aid and security assurances from the United States and four other world or regional powers. The pact successfully put aside for now the possibility of military action.

But the Western standoff with Iran remains tense. The Bush administration says it won't rule out an attack if Tehran refuses to end its nuclear enrichment program.


Yes my fellow Z3 Readers, this administration is lying again, like they did in telling all us citizens, Bin Ladin was behind the 911 attack.

(When really they were behind it --> see my link here on the 911 Truth)

They (Neocons) are lying like they did in the Downing Street memo which was more proof that they had premeditated plans on invading Iraq over "phony" WMD charges. <Lies!>

Lies and Faulty - Misleading Intelligence = Neocon Agenda

The second story in todays headlines is about the USA using NUKE warheads. Can you believe I am telling you we, in the USA, are pursuing the building of Nuclear Warheads?

Well it is out of hand and here is the AP News Report on this lovely Neocon death wish:

WASHINGTON - The Bush administration selected a design Friday for a new generation of atomic warheads, taking a major step toward building the first new nuclear weapon since the end of the Cold War nearly two decades ago.


So there are two outragous headlines Z3 Readers

How do these facts set with you?  Are you paying attention?

Now Playing: In Appreciation of The Women From All Over The World

Women Day:

Body, Mind & Spirit


 March 8th


Why Women's Day

Lesson Activities

hy dedicate a day exclusively to the celebration of the world's women?

The United Nations General Assembly, composed of delegates from every Member State, celebrates International Women's Day to recognize that peace and social progress require the active participation and equality of women, and to acknowledge the contribution of women to international peace and security.

For the women of the world, the Day is an occasion to review how far they have come in their struggle for equality, peace and development.

You might think that women's equality benefits mostly women, but every one-percentile growth in female secondary schooling results in a 0.3 percent growth in the economy. Yet girls are often kept from receiving education in the poorest countries that would best benefit from the economic growth.

Until the men and women work together to secure the rights and full potential of women, lasting solutions to the world's most serious social, economic and political problems are unlikely to be found.

In recent decades, much progress has been made. On a worldwide level, women's access to education and proper health care has increased; their participation in the paid labor force has grown; and legislation that promises equal opportunities for women and respect for their human rights has been adopted in many countries. The world now has an ever- growing number of women participating in society as policy-makers.

However, nowhere in the world can women claim to have all the same rights and opportunities as men.

The majority of the world's 1.3 billion absolute poor are women.

On average, women receive between 30 and 40 per cent less pay than men earn for the same work.

And everywhere, women continue to be victims of violence, with rape and domestic violence listed as significant causes of disability and death among women of reproductive age worldwide.

Mary Ellen of AFSC gives Excellent Interview About Trip to Iran
Mood:  hug me
Now Playing: This is a compelling story of peace and communication

Full text here: http://www.afsc.org/iran/  <please watch video>

Dear Joe Anybody and Friends,

Mary Ellen McNish, AFSC’s general secretary, just returned from a week-long delegation of U.S. religious leaders to meet with Iran’s president and other civic and religious leaders. The delegation, led by the AFSC and the Mennonite Central Committee, was the first U.S. religious group to meet with an Iranian president in Iran since the revolution in 1979. 

This delegation is an example of the person-to-person diplomacy that AFSC has engaged in throughout its 90-year history. 

Web video interview

Yesterday (Monday), Mary Ellen sat down for a short interview about her experiences in Iran with Aura Kanegis, AFSC's director of public affairs. In the interview, she talks about the need for diplomacy, her discussion with the Iranian president, women in Iran, how news is covered in Iran and the U.S., and more. We videotaped it and posted the video on our web site to share with you.

Thank you to those who sent in questions. Your input helped to guide Aura’s interview. I hope you find the video interesting.

You can view Mary Ellen’s interview at



Tell Congress: Support direct talks with Iran

Also, please support the call by AFSC and U.S. religious leaders for immediate face-to-face talks between the U.S. and Iranian governments. 

Email your U.S. Senators and Representative to ask that they support a joint House-Senate resolution calling on the U.S. to talk directly with Iran, and help to avert war with Iran by cosponsoring and seeking immediate action on S.Con.Res.13 in the Senate and H.Con.Res. 33 in the House.  These identical measures, introduced by Senator Bernard Sanders (VT) and Representative DeFazio (OR) respectively, seek to prevent expansion of war into Iran.

We believe that dialogue between countries is not a reward; it’s a starting point and a necessity.  Dialogue should not be conditional. Join with us in urging the U.S. government to directly and constructively talk with the Iranian government. 

Take Action >

More about the delegation to Iran

The 13-person religious delegation traveled to Iran to encourage a dialogue in the hope of averting war. The group met with Muslim and Christian leaders, government officials, and other Iranian people. The final day included a meeting with former President Khatami and current President Ahmadinejad. The meeting with President Ahmadinejad lasted two-and-a-half hours and covered a range of topics, including the role of religion in transforming conflict, Iraq, nuclear proliferation, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The delegation returns to the United States with a proposal that both the U.S. and Iranian governments immediately engage in direct, face-to-face talks; cease using language that defines the other using “enemy” images; and promote more people-to-people exchanges, including religious leaders, members of Parliament/Congress, and civil society.

Leaders from the following organizations took part in the delegation: American Friends Service Committee, Episcopal Church USA, Friends Committee on National Legislation, Mennonite Central Committee, National Council of Churches, Pax Christi USA, Sojourners, and the United Methodist Church.

For the full text of “U.S. Religious Leaders Find Hope in Iran,” the religious leaders’ joint statement for direct talks and more, see AFSC’s web news room.

Stripped Naked Just To Fly On An Airplane?
Mood:  blue
Now Playing: New TSA Technology is a Virtual Strip Search

Sky Harbor


Costs is about $100,000  

"The more obscure they make the image, the more obscure the contraband, weapons and explosives," said Barry Steinhardt, director of the Technology and Liberty Project at the ACLU in Washington, D.C. "The graphic image is a strip-search. You shouldn't have to be strip-searched to get on an airplane. Millions of Americans would regard them as pornographic."

Security scanner

can see through clothes


By TERRY TANG, Associated Press WriterSat Feb 24, 6:05 AM ET


Sky Harbor International Airport became the country's first to begin testing a controversial new federal screening system that takes X-rays of passenger's bodies in an effort to find concealed explosives and other weapons.The Phoenix airport started testing the new technology on Friday. It can see through people's clothes and show the body's contours with blush-inducing clarity.Critics have said the high-resolution images created by the "backscatter" technology are too invasive. But the Transportation Security Administration adjusted the equipment to make the image look something like a line drawing, while still detecting concealed weapons.


During testing, the machine will be used only as a backup screening measure. Passengers who fail the standard screening with a metal detector will be able to choose between the new device or a pat-down search.


"It's 100 percent voluntary, so if the passenger doesn't feel comfortable with it, the passenger doesn't have to go through it," TSA spokesman Nico Melendez said.

Passengers selected for screening by the device are asked to stand in front of the closet-size X-ray unit with the palms of their hands facing out. Then they must turn around for a second screening from behind. The procedure takes about a minute. "It seems faster. I'm not uncomfortable with it," said Kelsi Dunbar, 25, of Seattle, who chose the machine. "I trust TSA, and I trust that they are definitely trying to make things go quickly and smoothly in the airport.

But one expert said the machine's altered image is ineffective, while the clear picture is an invasion of privacy.


"The more obscure they make the image, the more obscure the contraband, weapons and explosives," said Barry Steinhardt, director of the Technology and Liberty Project at the ACLU in Washington, D.C. "The graphic image is a strip-search. You shouldn't have to be strip-searched to get on an airplane. Millions of Americans would regard them as pornographic."


The machine will be tested for up to 90 days at a single checkpoint at Sky Harbor International Airport's largest terminal, which hosts US Airways and Southwest Airlines, the two busiest airlines in Phoenix.


The technology could be left in place after the trial period, and the TSA hopes to roll out similar machines at the Los Angeles airport and New York's Kennedy Airport by the end of the year.


 The security officer who works with the passenger going through the screening will never see the images the machine produces. The pictures will be viewed by another officer about 50 feet away who will not see the passenger, the TSA said.The machine cannot store the images or transmit them and "once we're done screening the passenger, the image is gone forever," Melendez said.


He said the device at Sky Harbor costs about $100,000 but is on loan from the manufacturer, American Science and Engineering Inc. of Boston

Now Playing: Good News in 10 quick tips on Race

Top 10 Facts


About Race

 From Susan Pizarro-Eckert,
Your Guide to Race Relations.
FREE Newsletter. Sign Up Now!
We all have inherited ideas about race and racial difference. Some of these ideas are based on little more than misinformed stereotypes, others reflect ongoing fears shaped by outdated politics and social policies; usually these are passed on from one generation to the next.

Although many dream of a colorblind world, the truth is that race still matters in today's society. Why race matters and what level of importance we continue to give it will ultimately depend upon our understanding of the history of race and racial hierarchies. Following are 10 facts about race, which you may not be aware of.

1) Race matters today, but the concept of "race" didn't always exist

Fact: The ancient Greeks classified people according to culture and language, not according to physical differences. Foreigners, including Africans, were accepted as Greek citizens so long as they assimilated - i.e. learned the language and adopted similar customs and styles of dress.

2) Slavery is not inextricably linked with the concept of race

Fact: Both Greece and Rome enslaved people on the basis of battles won/lost; this was regardless of appearance. When the concept of "freedom" was introduced during the American Revolution, it shone a spotlight on the young nation's key moral contradiction: how could the concepts of freedom, equality, and natural rights of man stand alongside the practice of slavery? The growing notions of race and racial inferiority helped to resolve this contradiction by depicting Africans as different, separate from, and less deserving of the same rights that European settlers enjoyed.

3) There is no single genetic marker for race - race has no genetic basis

Fact: Throughout history, the search for “race” was fueled by preconceived ideas about “superiority.” Early "scientists" validated racial hierarchy, but modern scientists have discovered and continue to prove that no single gene, trait or characteristic distinguishes one race from another; two reasons: 1) human beings haven't been around long enough to evolve into subspecies, and 2) human beings have always been mobile, mixing genes with different populations. Genes are inherited independently. Race is a socially constructed concept, which over time has served as key support for social and political interests.

4) Although we behave as if race matters a lot, most variation occurs within races

Fact: 85% of human genetic variation exists within any given population - whether Italian, Chinese, or Korean - than between. Two Chinese mean are likely to be as genetically different as a Chinese man and an Italian man.

5) Despite the lack of scientific evidence, race matters

Fact: Race continues to be a powerful factor in determining which groups have access to resources and opportunities. The effects of past divisive social and political policies continue to be felt; the goal of a "colorblind" society will not ameliorate these effects. Pretending that race doesn't matter does not equate with treating people equally. Instead, the identification and reshaping of social policies that continue to advantage or disadvantage certain groups must be undertaken.

6) Race classification is a political, not a scientific or biological matter

Fact: Because race is a political and social issue, definitions and classification systems differ from one country to another. For example, Brazil has many more racial categories than the U.S., and Haiti has a vastly different definition of "white" than the U.S.

7) Race matters today, but the interesting fact is, we are all mixed

Fact: Humans have been mixing for centuries, and when you consider that evolutionary biologists have shown that we are all descendents of the original peoples of Africa, it is easier to understand just how closely connected we all are. New DNA home tests, although they are currently considered controversial, have resulted in fascinating findings for a vast number of Americans who have traced their DNA to foreign countries and cultures all over the globe.

8) Racial classifications have consistently changed over time

Fact: who's white, who's black, who's Asian have all changed just within the highly politicized American racial classification system. A close look at the highly imperfect classification system in use today reveals an incomplete map and an inconsistent application of guidelines and definitions. For example, in order to claim identity as an "American Indian" one must earn it; they must prove tribal membership or a minimum percentage of blood relation. On the other hand, to classify as "Black or African American" all that's necessary is a single "drop," or one ancestor, and the option of choice in identity is removed.

9) Race is a double-edged sword

Fact: Although the system itself lacks any biological or scientific basis and has been used primarily as tool for restricting access to resources and opportunities, we cannot simply do away with it in one fell swoop. The fact remains, that systems and institutions based on these classifications continue to reinforce opportunities (or lack thereof) among certain groups. Without tracking the effects of these institutions and biased systems, we would not have any way to identify whether or not we, as a society, had truly reached the goal of equality.

10) Racial categories lack neutrality and objectivity

Fact: racial categories (along with their definitions) were constructed and reconstructed to support shifting political goals and, most often, specifically for the purpose of excluding certain groups. For example, in the 1900s U.S. courts decided who was legally "white" to determine naturalization rights; these ever-shifting decisions were most often arbitrary and/or contradictory.

Josh Wolf, videographer and blogger, remains in jail
Mood:  irritated
Now Playing: Journalist for the Non Corporate News in Jail (still)
Topic: MEDIA




Josh Wolf, videographer and blogger, is now the journalist imprisoned longest in U.S. history for refusing to comply with a subpoena. He has been locked up in federal prison for close to six months.

In July 2005, Wolf was covering a San Francisco protest against the G-8 Summit in Scotland (the G-8 stands for the Group of Eight industrialized nations: Britain, France, Russia, Germany, the U.S., Japan, Italy and Canada). He posted video to the Web and sold some video to a local broadcast-news outlet. The authorities wanted him to turn over the original tapes and to testify. He refused.

In a recent court filing, U.S. Attorney Kevin Ryan says it's only in Wolf's "imagination that he is a journalist."

The Society of Professional Journalists must be equally imaginative. Their Northern California chapter named Josh Wolf Journalist of the Year for 2006, and in March will give him the James Madison Freedom of Information Award. "Josh's commitment to a free and unfettered press deserves profound respect," SPJ National President Christine Tatum said.

The SPJ is also honoring San Francisco Chronicle reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams, who are facing prison for refusing to reveal who leaked grand-jury testimony about steroid use in baseball. Williams and Fainaru-Wada remain free pending appeal.

The problem for Wolf? Independence. As Wolf observes, there is "definitely a divergence between how the government's handled my situation as an independent journalist and how they've dealt with the corporate media, which have also been found in civil contempt."

The First Amendment states: "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom ... of the press." By forcing journalists to hand over tapes, notes and other material, and to testify, the government is making just such a law. Whistle-blowers and others in dangerous situations will no longer come forward to provide information to reporters if they think their names will be divulged. Journalists must be free to protect their sources and to report the truth if our democracy is to function.

Wolf's lawyer, Martin Garbus, one of the nation's leading First Amendment attorneys, says the government has done an end run around California's shield law, which would have guaranteed Wolf protection. The authorities called on the Joint Terrorism Task Force, or JTTF, which moved the case to federal court, where no shield law exists (as reporters in the Valerie Plame case discovered).

The grand jury is investigating whether arson was attempted on a San Francisco police car, though the squad car was not damaged beyond a broken taillight. A police officer was injured after the squad car he was in was driven into the protest march (that case was investigated then dropped by the local district attorney); however, Wolf insists he was not videotaping either incident.

What is clear is that by focusing on the alleged attempted arson of the car, the JTTF can assert jurisdiction, as federal anti-terror dollars, they say, paid for part of the car. With these legalistic jurisdictional acrobatics, Wolf is stripped of California shield-law protections, and remains locked up without charge until he turns over his tape and submits to the Bush administration inquisitors.

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a brief in his support, pointing out how JTTFs across the country, under the guise of investigating "terrorism," are targeting anti-war groups and compiling databases of law-abiding citizens critical of the Bush administration.

Wolf, who is 24 years old, is staying healthy in prison, reading a lot and learning from other inmates. He mails entries to be posted to his blog at joshwolf.net. Garbus expects him to remain in prison at least until the grand jury expires in July.

Freedom of the press means freeing journalists to do their work. Congress can insure that by passing a federal shield law.
