Your New Attorney General

Michael Mukasey has been sworn in as U.S. attorney general, a day after 53 senators decided that a man who doesn’t know what torture is should have the job.

Giuliani Protégé Indicted

Bernard Kerik, the man Rudy Giuliani mentored, appointed as police commissioner of New York and recommended to head the Department of Homeland Security, has been indicted on corruption charges. For Giuliani, it’s not just a problem of unsavory association, but that he championed Kerik when the cat was seemingly already out of the bag.

California Sues the EPA

California is sick of the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s attempts to block two-year-old legislation that would cut auto emissions in the state well beyond federal guidelines, and the state attorney general has filed a lawsuit against the agency, which under the Bush administration has failed utterly in its principal mandate.

For Musharraf, Abuse of Power Speaks Louder Than Words

The Pakistani president, general and “Daily Show” cutup has promised to hold elections a mere month after the constitutional deadline, but, as the Musharraf regime continues to arrest political rivals, whether anyone will be left to run against him is a different question altogether.

Blackwater’s Pattern of Violence

More than seven months before Blackwater’s September killing spree, one of the company’s snipers shot and killed three Iraqi guards, who, witnesses said, never opened fire. A brief “investigation” by the State Department, which included no Iraqi witnesses or visits to the scene of the crime, found that the incident “fell within approved rules governing the use of force.”

Robertson Backs Giuliani

Conservative Christian blowhard Pat Robertson has endorsed Rudy Giuliani for president, possibly giving the candidate a boost with fundamentalist voters. Robertson came to the decision because, as only he could possibly put it: “The overriding issue before the American people is the defense of our population from the blood lust of Islamic terrorists.”

The Deadliest Year and Counting

849 American soldiers have been killed in Iraq this year, the deadliest for U.S. troops so far. While it’s true that the last couple of months have seen lower casualties than has been typical this year, those numbers cannot satisfactorily be explained by a more stable Iraq or some newfound love for Americans, and it would be grotesque to call the deaths of only 38 troops in October “good news.”

Iran Reaches Nuke Landmark

Iran is another step closer to reaching its long-term nuclear goals, now that 3,000 centrifuges are up and running as part of its uranium enrichment program.  Some experts in the West say 3,000 centrifuges technically could be sufficient to produce a nuclear weapon within a year.
