And Where Was A.G. Ashcroft? A.W.O.L.
By William Fisher

Bush-era Attorney General John Ashcroft had a busy day in court yesterday.

A Federal Appeals court ruled he could not be held responsible for kidnapping a Canadian citizen in New York and shipping him off to Syria where he was imprisoned for a year and tortured.

But, in another case, five men who had been living in New York and were ultimately deported won a $1.26 million settlement from the U.S. government in a suit accusing Ashcroft and other officials of racial profiling, illegal detention and abuse of Muslim, Arab and South Asian men in the days following the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001.

Yasser Ebrahim, one of the men held at the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn, NY after the post-9/11 sweeps and now living in Egypt, said: “We were deprived of our rights and abused simply because of our religion and the color of our skin. After seven long years, I am relieved to be able to try to rebuild my life. I know that I and others are still affected by what happened and that communities in the U.S. continue to feel the fallout. I sincerely hope this will never happen again.”

The court concluded that Arar’s case raised too many sensitive foreign policy and secrecy issues to permit relief. It leaves the federal officials involved free of any legal accountability for what they did.

In a 7-4 decision, the Court wrote... [In Full]

The House of Representatives has passed an unemployment benefits extension, as if Americans need 'the dole' instead of an emergency job creation program similar to the 60s vintage Office of Economic Opportunity

The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee has passed a climate control bill without any republican signatures whatsoever.

Look at Baby NOW! The lawsuits by the Miss California/USA pageant against Carrie Prejean have been dropped now that news of her appearance in a porn flick has become public and her boobs are so "out there!" in a way they'd rather not be associated with.

Musical Mental Imagery...(without the 'staple through the navel').
