Administration Seeks to Protect ?Interrogation? Methods

Legislation put forward by the Bush administration this week would legalize the same torture techniques recently banned by the Army.  By selectively interpreting the Geneva Conventions, the legislation would allow CIA operatives and even the Army, should it decide to revert to previous rules, to conduct interrogations using unsavory methods.

Friendster Rebellion: A Privacy-Concern Dam Break?

Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program failed to arouse much more than a collective shrug across much of America, but when the social networking site Facebook recently began broadcasting every change a user makes to his online “friends,” (“you’re out of my top-50,” for example), the community rebelled—quickly and viciously. Could this be the start of something?

Suri Cruise
From Vanity Fair

Just a Friendly Reminder…

Forty-six percent of Americans still believe there was a connection between Saddam and 9/11. The good news? That number is down from 69% since September 2003. (via Salon)

  • At this rate, the truth will become common knowledge around the same time Suri Cruise, above, graduates from college.

    Holy Truth-Telling, Batman!

    Quote of the week: Bush, in an Oval Office interview with Katie Couric, “The hardest part of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror….” (video and transcript)

  • Why should that be so tough? Sure, Iraq didn’t have WMD, wasn’t harboring terrorists, and had nothing to do with 9/11, but…. OK, maybe it should be kind of tough.

    Just say What?
    From Time

    Stoner Boom

    Drug use among baby boomers is up, while use among teens is down, according to new government figures.

  • That actually makes sense. If teens started paying as much attention to the doings of Bush & Co. as their forebears, we’d see those numbers rising in unison.

    Baghdad Death Toll Triples

    It appears that a much-heralded drop-off in the number of killings in Iraq last month didn’t actually happen. ABC News reports that the original reported figure of 550 has now been revised to 1,535—which is in line with the blood-drenched months of June (1,595) and July (1,855). No word yet on the reason behind the initial discrepancy.

    When ‘Truthdigging’ Turns Violent

    When Karl Rove became angered by an investigator who dug up damaging information, he went after the guy’s wife. The guy being investigated by this reporter, however, goes straight for the source.

    The ‘Path’ to a Distorted 9/11

    Several progressive bloggers have set up an online clearinghouse dedicated to exposing the fabrications in ABC/Disney?s upcoming miniseries “The Path to 9/11.” It urges ABC/Disney to scrub the film of outright falsehoods, or else shelve the film completely.
    UPDATE # 1:

  • ABC makes some minor changes to the film.
  • (much more after the jump…)

    Borat Plays Anti-Semitism for Laughs

    With the Sacha Baron Cohen movie “Borat: Cultural Learnings…” hitting screens Nov. 3, Americans will be treated to a brand of Jew-bashing not often seen in Hollywood films. (In one scene, Borat becomes convinced his Jewish innkeepers have turned themselves into cockroaches and throws money at the bugs.)

  • The kicker: Cohen is an observant Jew.
