In The News:
Things in Haiti are starting to sort themselves out as people begin to flee Port au Prince into the countryside. That IS a good thing in one way, and a bad thing in another... especially if there are any 'disturbances' on the island when the citizns find out the US is preventing the return of the last Haitian president we kidnapped, Jean Bertrand Aristede. Can you say "Bands of guerrillas in the mountains" similar to Fidel's merry band of revolutionaries? The comparison IS apt because if Fidel had not turned the situation in Cuba around, Cuba would have ended up very much like Haiti. There is no way of knowing if the conditions ARE ripe for such a rebellion on Haiti, but it IS notable. It's also notable The UN Security Council has authorized sending 2000 more troops to the island as if 10,000 US troops were not enough to 'secure' the island. More in the commentary.

Corollary not-quite-paranoid theories from Da Buffalo, with readings from Razed By Wolves, March 2008 (William Arkin from the Washington Post Early Warning column "Fighting the War on Terror in the Caribbean and Central America")

The state of that posting may point to the current state of our policy on Haiti and the region. Covert.

ALL links in that post are dead and the full text of the article is NLA at the WaPo.

As a matter of fact, there is no reference whatsoever to "Operation Enduring Freedom Caribbean and Central America" that he speaks of ANYWHERE on the Washington Post site or a quick Google NEWS search, although a general Google search turned up some interesting goodies such as USSOUTHCOM Posture 2008 House and Senate Armed Services Committee testimony, and here is a write up on that testimony from Caribbean 360 news service "US Admiral says Caribbean possible terrorist threat".

The anti-terrorism operation, according to William Arkin of the Post, is stationed at Homestead AFB, current center of US "relief" operations for Haiti.
Working for U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM), SOD-G is moving to an airbase in Homestead, Fla., where it will take up contingency counter-terrorism planning responsibilities for the region, seeking to characterize how al Qaeda and other terrorists might exploit drug trafficking routes and patterns or other gaps in American defense to infiltrate into the United States.

So how long could it be until the US finds "al Qaeda on Haiti"?

In the Eastern Caribbean, in the last hour (06-0700pst), a 5.8 quake has struck the Cayman Islands.

In OTHER news of 'fleeing people'... Kabul Afghanistan is on 'Full Metal Lockdown'. The city is sealed after a series of coordinated bombings and all cars are being checked. In this case, Western NGOs and other organizations are fleeing.

The Bush era FBI violated federal wiretap laws from 2002 to 2006.
"...the FBI, from 2002 until 2006, used exigent letters to collect phone records without the proper underlying terrorist justification.

The FBI illegally collected more than 2,000 U.S. telephone call records between 2002 and 2006 by invoking terrorism emergencies that did not exist or simply persuading phone companies to provide records, according to internal bureau memos and interviews. FBI officials issued approvals after the fact to justify their actions." [In Full]
Will the DOJ, under whose authority the FBI operates, prosecute the DOJ?

The polls are open and there are lines 2-3 blocks long... traffic jams, in the Massachusetts special election for the dead Edward Kennedy's vacant seat. There was $10 million dollar spent in the last week of the race alone. If the race goes to the Republican contender, expect senatorial deadlock for the rest of Obama's first term, an administration at it lowest popularity rating ever right now. His first term could very well end up being his only term.
