    officials speaking on condition of anonymity in a teleconference with reporters reiterated the administration s position that it was invoking the so called state secrets privilege in arguing that the 9th U S Circuit Court of Appeals must dismiss the cases because they threaten to expose information authorities say is essential to the nation s security The case cannot be litigated in light of the national security interest involved one official said The officials spoke on the condition that their names would not be published because they said it was the government s protocol not to comment on pending litigation The Bush administration has invoked the state secrets defense often from spy cases and patent disputes to employment discrimination litigation Still two judges have ruled recently that the defense does not apply in two lawsuits challenging Bush s surveillance program President Bush acknowledged in 2005 that the government was eavesdropping without warrants on communications in the United States as long as one of the parties to the communication was suspected of terrorism and outside the United States On Wednesday the government will urge the San Francisco based appeals court to dismiss the case on grounds that the case could expose state secrets the justice department officials said In our view those claims should always be dismissed a senior administration official said A year from now a director of national intelligence looking at all of the same information may not make the same determination The official added These are legal principals not simply being made up by the executive The officials also said that the lawsuits should also be tossed because the plaintiffs have no direct proof they were spied on We cannot confirm or deny whether or not that s true one of the officials said Earlier this month Congress

    make a compelling case that the masked men at the SPP protest in Montebello QC last week were in fact police agent provocateurs which Canadian police now admit is accurate The true protesters quickly figured out who they were and the bizarre behavior of the supposed anarchists shuffling toward not away from the police line once suspicions about their identities were made the discussion one seems to behaving with police before they were apprehended and of course the amazing coincidence of the fact that these anarchists and the police happen to be wearing identical boots right down to the tread patterns and company logo make any other conclusion difficult to make This is what your government and the Canadian government thinks of you It has no respect for democratic institutions It is happy to create the false impression that protesters are violent so that the crack down on that violence further consolidates their power You are not a citizen You are a subject At least in their eyes more on the story http ottawa indymedia org en 2007 08 5383 shtml Vote your opinion laws executive orders directives resistance achievements reports resources and materials a v galleries search home about

    can pass this bill is by creating and sustaining a panic atmosphere Many of us were told in private conversations that if we voted against this bill on Monday that the sky would fall the market would drop two or three thousand points the first day and a couple of thousand on the second day and a few members were even told that there would be martial law in America if we voted no If this is true and Rep Sherman is not delusional I ask you to consider that if they are willing to threaten martial law now it is foolish to assume they will never use that threat again It is also foolish to trust in an orderly election process to resolve this threat And why deploy the First Brigade One thing the deployment accomplishes is to put teeth into such a threat I interviewed Vietnam veteran retired U S Air Force Colonel and patriot David Antoon for clarification If the President directed the First Brigade to arrest Congress what could stop him Nothing Their only recourse is to cut off funding The Congress would be at the mercy of military leaders to go to them and ask them not to obey illegal orders But these orders are now legal Correct If the President directs the First Brigade to arrest a bunch of voters what would stop him Nothing It would end up in courts but the action would have been taken If the President directs the First Brigade to kill civilians what would stop him Nothing What would prevent him from sending the First Brigade to arrest the editor of the Washington Post Nothing He could do what he did in Iraq send a tank down a street in Washington and fire a shell into the Washington

    was issued for overseas deployment Those soldiers do not have that on their equipment list for deploying in the homeland And again they have been involved in situations overseas And having talked to commanders who have returned those situations are largely nonviolent non kinetic And when they do escalate the soldiers have a lot of experience with seeing the indicators and understanding it So I would say that our soldiers are trustworthy They can deploy in the homeland and American citizens can be confident that there will be no abuses AG Matt Rothschild MR Well you know that doesn t really satisfy me and I don t think it should satisfy your listeners and your audience Amy because you know our people in the field in Iraq some of them have not behaved up to the highest standards and a lot of police forces in the United States who have been using these tasers have used them inappropriately The whole question here about what the Pentagon is doing patrolling in the United States gets to the real heart of the matter which is do we have a democracy here I mean there is a law on the books called the Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act that says that the president of the United States as commander in chief cannot put the military on our streets And this is a violation of that it seems to me President Bush tried to get around this act a couple years ago in the Defense Authorization Act that he signed that got rid of some of those restrictions and then last year in the new Defense Authorization Act thanks to the work of Senator Patrick Leahy and Kit Bond of Missouri that was stripped away And so the President isn t supposed to be using the military in this fashion and though the President true to form appended a signing statement to that saying he s not going to be governed by that So here we have a situation where the President of United States has been aggrandizing his power and this gives him a whole brigade unit to use against U S citizens here at home AG Colonel Michael Boatner what about the Posse Comitatus Act and where does that fit in when U S troops are deployed on U S soil MR It absolutely governs in every instance We are not allowed to help enforce the law We don t do that Every time we get a request and again this kind of a deployment is defense support to civil authority under the National Response Framework and the Stafford Act And we do it all the time in response to hurricanes floods fires and things like that But again you know if we review the requirement that comes to us from civil authority and it has any complexion of law enforcement whatsoever it gets rejected and pushed back because it s not lawful AG Matthew Rothschild does this satisfy you

    reset and regenerate after a deployment The 1st of the 3rd is still scheduled to deploy to either Iraq or Afghanistan in early 2010 which means the soldiers will have been home a minimum of 20 months by the time they ship out In the meantime they ll learn new skills use some of the ones they acquired in the war zone and more than likely will not be shot at while doing any of it They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical biological radiological nuclear or high yield explosive or CBRNE attack Training for homeland scenarios has already begun at Fort Stewart and includes specialty tasks such as knowing how to use the jaws of life to extract a person from a mangled vehicle extra medical training for a CBRNE incident and working with U S Forestry Service experts on how to go in with chainsaws and cut and clear trees to clear a road or area The 1st BCT s soldiers also will learn how to use the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded 1st BCT commander Col Roger Cloutier said referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them The package is for use only in war zone operations not for any domestic purpose It s a new modular package of nonlethal capabilities that they re fielding They ve been using pieces of it in Iraq but this is the first time that these modules were consolidated and this package fielded and because of this mission we re undertaking we were the first to get it The package includes equipment to stand up a hasty road block spike strips for slowing stopping or controlling traffic shields and batons and beanbag bullets I was the first guy in the brigade to get Tasered said Cloutier describing the experience as your worst muscle cramp ever times 10 throughout your whole body I m not a small guy I weigh 230 pounds it put me on my knees in seconds The brigade will not change its name but the force will be known for the next year as a CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force or CCMRF pronounced sea smurf I can t think of a more noble mission than this said Cloutier who took command in July We ve been all over the world during this time of conflict but now our mission is to take care of citizens at home and depending on where an event occurred you re going home to take care of your home town your loved ones While soldiers combat training is applicable he said some nuances don t apply If we go in we re going in to help American citizens on American soil to save lives provide critical life support help clear debris restore normalcy

    CIA Director George Tenet could not get their people to torture folks without written signed authorization by the president And we have a copy of that authorization Yes it s been available for years You have to download it to believe it In his Feb 7 2002 memorandum Bush wrote I determine that common Article 3 of Geneva does not apply to either al Qaeda or Taliban detainees Common Article 3 bans torture and outrages upon personal dignity in particular humiliating and degrading treatment Then drawing on the lawyerly legerdemain Bush did something really dumb Using words drafted by Vice President Dick Cheney s lawyer David Addington for a memo dated Jan 25 2002 signed by then White House counsel Alberto Gonzales the president ordered that detainees be treated humanely to the extent appropriate and consistent with military necessity Tacked onto the end of that sentence is a classic circumlocution in a manner consistent with the principles of Geneva But that is not what Geneva says and there is no way to square that circle This is the giant loophole through which Rumsfeld and Tenet drove the Mack truck of torture yes signed by the president The rotten apples were demonstrably at the very top of the barrel Typical of the timid treatment accorded this issue is what initially seemed to be a straightforward article by Don Eggen in Sunday s Washington Post It spotlighted scapegoat of the hour Yoo noting that he advised that in time of war the president s ultimate authority as commander in chief trumps laws prohibiting assault maiming and other crimes by military interrogators In focusing on Yoo s legal advice however Eggen joined his mainstream journalist colleagues in omitting the smoking gun Bush s implementing memorandum of Feb 7 2002 That document already had cleared the way for waterboarding stress positions forced nudity and other abuse of detainees as well as for further legal musings about the unlimited powers of a wartime president like Yoo s newly disclosed March 14 2003 memo The omission was all the more conspicuous in that a listing of nine memoranda relevant to the story sits side by side with Eggen s article Guess which memo did not make it onto that list Again I urge you to download the president s Feb 7 smoking gun from the Web and read it yourself The Jan 25 2002 memo bearing Gonzales s signature is also available in its original form Supreme Court Has a Problem On June 29 2006 in Hamdan v Rumsfeld the Supreme Court ruled that Geneva DOES apply to al Qaeda and Taliban detainees One senior Bush administration official is reported to have gone quite pale at the time when Justice Anthony M Kennedy raised the ante warning that violations of Common Article 3 are considered war crimes punishable as federal offenses That threw a real scare into Bush as well who pressed Congress hard to give administration officials retroactive immunity from prosecution That came just three
