It is beginning to be clear the terrorist nature of the Israeli – USA alliance against Muslims and the genocides carried out by it. We have to keep in mind that Muslim resistance only appeared and followed the Israeli attack to erase Palestine from the map which they falsely call liberation.

The Dubai assassination and the "war on terror" By Patrick O’Connor 02 Mar 2010 The reaction of governments around the world to the murder of Hamas member Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai last month underscores the extent to which basic precepts of international law have been torn up under the "war on terror". As far as the US government and its allies are concerned, extra-judicial executions and so-called targeted killings now constitute a legitimate state activity and do not warrant comment, let alone condemnation... The more or less open acceptance by Washington and its allies of Mossad’s latest atrocity is because similar methods now form a central component of the "war on terror". As well as being subject to indefinite detention without trial, rendition and torture, individuals identified as a threat to the security of the US state are routinely executed in countries including Afghanistan , Iraq , Pakistan and Yemen .

Army awards lucrative contract to KBR for Iraq work 02 Mar 2010 Military authorities say defense giant KBR Inc. has been awarded a contract potentially worth $2.8 billion for work in Iraq as U.S. forces continue to leave the country. KBR was notified of the award Friday, a day after the company told shareholders it lost about $25 million in
award feesbonuses because of flawed electrical work in Iraq . The Houston-based company was charged with maintaining the barracks where a Green Beret was electrocuted in 2008 while showering. The uproar that followed triggered a review of 17 other electrocution deaths in Iraq and widespread inspections of electrical work in Iraq , much of it performed by KBR. [Lest we forget the Cheney spin-off's 'alleged' acts of terrorism, rapes, use of slave labor, electrocutions, chemical burn pits, barracks' dirty kitchens, spoiled food, contaminated water, theft of services, and embezzlement. If KBR was a person, it would be on death row. It needs to be there. --LRP]

Intelligence Fusion Centers --A De-Centralized National Intelligence Agency By Thomas Cincotta Winter 09/Spring 10 The Department of Homeland Security’s network of fusion centers operate under the auspices of state police or even large local police forces, thus sidestepping the guidelines enacted under the Privacy Act of 1974 that limit information sharing by federal agencies. Yet fusion centers have a national command center feel, with mosaics of television monitors, and desks for all the police agents assigned to work together and enjoy face time -- the county sheriff, local police officers, the FBI, National Guard (restricted by law to drug-related missions), state police, Department of Homeland Security, and the civilian intelligence analysts... Nurtured by more than $327 million in direct grant funding from 2004 through 2008, fusion centers won an additional $250 million in President Barack Obama's stimulus plan to be spent by 2010 on upgrading, modifying, or constructing sites. DHS currently has 41 officers deployed at fusion centers and hopes to have an officer at every fusion center in the country by the end of 2010.

Lone wolf terrorist Bunning retreats, Senate approves jobless aid, road funding 02 Mar 2010 The Senate has passed stopgap legislation to extend help for the jobless and keep federal highway dollars flowing.

'The cash flown out of Kabul includes a wide range of foreign currencies. Most is in U.S. dollars, euros and -- to the bafflement of officials -- Saudi Arabian riyals.' Officials puzzle over millions of dollars leaving Afghanistan by plane for Dubai 25 Feb 2010 A blizzard of bank notes is flying out of Afghanistan -- often in full view of customs officers at the Kabul airport -- as part of a cash exodus that is confounding U.S. officials and raising concerns about the money's origin. But at a time when the United States and its allies are spending billions of dollars to prop up the
fragile governmentpuppet regime of President Hamid Karzai, the volume of the outflow has stirred concerns that funds have been diverted from aid. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, for its part, is trying to figure out whether some of the money comes from Afghanistan 's thriving opium trade. [Oh, yes! It's a 'puzzle' and a 'bafflement' and lions and tigers and bears oh my! This is money the CIA is laundering for the Afghan opium and gas pipelines. Anyone with an IQ above that of Sarah Palin/80 gets it. --LRP]

Obama, 08-1234, is likely to reach the court again, as there remain other cases in which prisoners cleared for release with nowhere to go remain at Guantánamo.
