In The News:
Thanks to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the commentary and news audio files this morning.

President Obama gave his second speech at the UN General Assembly this morning where he talked about Middle East relations and the hunt for al Qaeda (Let it be noted senior Obama administration officials say, despite our 'efforts' the "risk of small-scale attacks by al-Qaeda and its allies is rising").

Highlights of that speech are here. The president spoke yesterday about development and poverty.

Meanwhile at home, ObamaCare begins as some of the federally mandated health care reforms kick in today but there are sticky points. Details.

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is most likely going to run for mayor of Chicago. He will be leaving as soon as three weeks from now and will most likely replaced by senior staff advisor Pete Rouse. Other possible candidates include "...deputy National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, Vice President Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain and White House counsel Bob Bauer."(source, ABCNews).

In Yemen , 4 rebels-without-arms we're calling al Qaeda have been captured making that 27 so far. But it is suspected that Anwar al-Awlaki and others have escaped into the mountains. The Yemeni government is refuting US involvement in the operations

Today the White House and Justice Department have to file appeals and motions in federal court defending the Pentagon's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" against a federal court ruling and permanent injunction due to the rule's apparent unconstitutionality. If the administration doesn't act, Congress' Republicans rejection of the rider attached to the Defense Appropriations bill becomes moot.

In OTHER News:

Erik Prince's Blackwater is apparently spying on US domestic activists according to Jeremy Scahill @ The Nation:
Through Total Intelligence and the Terrorism Research Center, Blackwater also did business with a range of multinational corporations. According to internal Total Intelligence communications, biotech giant Monsanto—the world’s largest supplier of genetically modified seeds—hired the firm in 2008–09. The relationship between the two companies appears to have been solidified in January 2008 when Total Intelligence chair Cofer Black traveled to Zurich to meet with Kevin Wilson, Monsanto’s security manager for global issues.

After the meeting in Zurich, Black sent an e-mail to other Blackwater executives, including to Prince and Prado at their Blackwater e-mail addresses. Black wrote that Wilson “understands that we can span collection from internet, to reach out, to boots on the ground on legit basis protecting the Monsanto [brand] name…. Ahead of the curve info and insight/heads up is what he is looking for.” Black added that Total Intelligence “would develop into acting as intel arm of Monsanto.” Black also noted that Monsanto was concerned about animal rights activists and that they discussed how Blackwater “could have our person(s) actually join [activist] group(s) legally.” Black wrote that initial payments to Total Intelligence would be paid out of Monsanto’s “generous protection budget” but would eventually become a line item in the company’s annual budget. He estimated the potential payments to Total Intelligence at between $100,000 and $500,000. According to documents, Monsanto paid Total Intelligence $127,000 in 2008 and $105,000 in 2009.

...And Jimmy Carter's Secretary of Energy sounds the alarm (about Peak Oil)
James Schlesinger, President Carter’s Energy Secretary, wrote the foreword to a book written by Dr Robert Hirsch, a former US official who predicts a fall of the oil production within 5 years.

Never before has a high-ranking political figure like Schlesinger gave his support to such a prognosis.

The book will be published in the US on October the 1st. Here is an exclusive interview with its author. [In Full]
