In The News: As announced in the commentary, Travus is taking 'a vacation on the state of Nevada' next week. After today's commentary Da Buffalo's has appended a pertinent morning's commentary from February 29 2008, ensconced in the Cabale News Service Archive @ "The Prison-Industrial Complex In A Nutshell - Your Money, Your 'Stuff', Or Your Freedom... Your Choice". I have also included it as a separate audio file.

Now... Travus T. Hipp with "All the news you never knew you needed to know till now": In spite a symbolic standoff bid by Representative Flake of Arizona (553 pork barrel amendments spoken for) to the Defense Authorization Bill, it passes. NO money for the closure of Guantanamo concentration camp, no money for the F-22 fighter, but IT DOES INCLUDE $180 billion for our futile Af-Raqi-Paki war, and "...funding for both a new presidential helicopter and a backup engine for the F-35..." which makes it veto-bait when it reaches the president's desk

Don't think it's futile? read the next item...

A senior US military advisor Col. Timothy R. Reese says it's time to "declare victory" and leave Iraq". That we've just become an 'irritant factor' (Naawwww! The deaths of what must be a million Iraqis, the destruction of most of their cities and historic/archeological sites, the millions more wounded or displaced... No 'irritation' at all until now... Geez! What would YOU be thinking if the Iraqis did that to YOUR country and it's people?). The full text of his comments are available by a click-through @ Atlantic magazine.

"There is only one question here, did the guy throw a grenade or didn't he throw a grenade. That's the issue. Right?" - A federal judge has ordered the release of Mohammed Jawad. He's been kept at Guantanamo for 6 1/2 years and had been tortured which makes his admission of throwing a hand grenade at US troops inadmissible. The US government was recently shown to have no case against the 21 year old, captured in his teens, which enraged the presiding judge:
Among her comments: “Seven years and this case is riddled with holes…This guy has been there seven years, seven years. He might have been taken there at the age of maybe 12, 13, 14, 15 years old. I don't know what he is doing there…Your case has been gutted…The case is in shambles…This case is riddled with holes...The United States Government knows it is lousy…This is a case that's been screaming to everybody for years…This is a case unlike all the rest of them. This does not involve intelligence. This does not involve any particular high-level government agency doing the intelligence at all. Did anybody see him do it or didn't they see him do it?”

She concluded: “The time has come to face the music...for seven years the guy sat down there, being subjected to the conditions that the United States Government has subjected him to since the day they picked him up in Afghanistan…It is not fair to keep dragging this out for no good reason...We're not going to wait and wait until you come up with another piece of evidence…This case is an outrage to me…There is only one question here, did the guy throw a grenade or didn't he throw a grenade. That's the issue. Right? If he didn't do that, you can't win. If you can't prove that, you can't win.” [In Full]

40 days of Iranian election protests. Hundreds of people appear at the cemetery where the 26 year old woman protestor Neda Agha-Sultan (Soltan), who was shot in the heart and killed by the authorities in the early days of the post-election demonstrations, has been buried. Meanwhile the civil disturbances continued yesterday as thousands clash with police over a ban on visiting the grave. Opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karrubi were also barred from visiting her gravesite.
