On the TERRORISM Front, the US government just lost a case with 324 charges of murder brought against one of the peripheral people involved in the Tanzania/Kenya "al Qaeda" bombings. He WAS CONVICTED on one count of "Conspiracy to damage a federal building"... Just as a protestor might for committing a GIANT "A" (anarchy) to the edifice of the Justice Department or the like. This judicial result is leading to discussion of whether detainees at our Guantanamo "Concentration Camp By The Sea" can be tried by civilian standards. In military courts tortured evidence, discarded in this court, would most likely be admissible. More:
Landmark terror trial ends in not-guilty verdict on all but one count

(CNN) -- Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani was acquitted Wednesday of all but one count of conspiracy-related charges, in a landmark civilian trial involving the first Guantanamo detainee to be tried in civilian court.
Ghailani was convicted by a federal jury on a charge of conspiracy to destroy buildings and U.S. property, in connection with his role in the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.

The trial had been widely considered a testing ground for the Obama administration, which has said that it could try some terrorism suspects outside military tribunals and in civilian courts.

Ghailani's lawyer, Peter Quijano, said Wednesday's verdict was "a reaffirmation that this nation's judicial system is the greatest ever devised."

"It is a truly a system of laws and not men," he said.

The U.S. Justice Department responded in a written statement, referring to the one guilty finding by saying, "We respect the jury's verdict and are pleased that Ahmed Ghailani now faces a minimum of 20 years in prison and a potential life sentence for his role in the embassy bombings."

Ghailani faced charges of conspiracy and murder in the 1998 attacks on U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. [In Full @ CNN]

The founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange is now subject to arrest in Sweden due to a previously dropped case regarding an investigation of rape, sexual molestation, and unlawful coercion that he claims untrue. He may seek asylum in Switzerland.

In Texas, all sides have rested their cases in the trial of former Speaker of the House Republican Tom DeLay on money laundering and election influencing charges.

Expect more of this throughout the industrialized world - The Greek police have used tear gas and stun grenades as 25,000 people in Athens take to the street over cuts in the nation's social benefits.

...And at San Francisco State University thirteen people were arrested yesterday and pepper spray was used on crowds outside the California University Regents meetings where serious cuts in university services and major (8% quoted) fee increases are about to be enacted.

Secretary of State Clinton has implored congress to ratify the New S.T.A.R.T. treaty even as the Republicans vow to block it.

In OTHER News:


A while back I reported on the closing of the Santa Cruz County Veterans Hall under the flimsiest of excuses:
...And In Razer's home town, Santa Cruz California, the Veterans who run the VFW Hall made a Holiday Dinner Announcement

There will be none.

SC Vets Hall Thanksgiving

The County closed the building, alleging it is unsafe, a situation which has prompted the United Veterans Council – of which VFW Post 5888 is a part – to bring suit against the County in Superior Court, jury trial is scheduled to commence November 15th. The eviction, and lack of offers by the County for substitute facilities, resulted in a regrettable decline of in services for veterans and the community at large. At the last Post meeting, October 6, the decision was made that the Post is unable to hold the Holiday Dinners, this year.
In other words the county has mysteriously declared the building that VFW Post #1588 (Bill Motto, ANTI-war) has used for at least the thirty five years of Razer's residence here a 'seismic hazard' because of an un-level floor and some loose plaster. [More Here]
Jury says Santa Cruz County didn't do right by displaced veterans

By Kurtis Alexander

SANTA CRUZ -- A jury has found Santa Cruz County negligent in its obligation to accommodate local veterans in the wake of the closure of the downtown Veterans Memorial Building in January.

The verdict reached Wednesday, which followed two days of court testimony, caps a high-profile dispute over whether the county's effort to provide space for veterans at a satellite government campus was sufficient.

"Obviously the county is going to have to go back to the drawing board now ... and rethink our location," said Bob Patton, president of the United Veterans Council of Santa Cruz County. Patton said he was pleased jurors agreed the county had been "cold-hearted and unreceptive" to vets by seeking to relocate them at facilities that didn't meet their "honest needs."

The mess began when county officials closed the Vets Hall because of seismic safety concerns. The Veterans Council responded with a lawsuit, alleging the new Emeline Avenue facility offered as a substitute for the veterans benefits office and meeting space downtown was hard for elderly vets to reach and didn't have adequate features, such as a kitchen.

Wednesday's decision in favor of the vets did not come with a directive for the county. Superior Court Judge Timothy Volkmann is expected to take up the matter Jan. 7." [In Full]
NOW, to work on the city's mistreatment and criminalization-by-rafts-of-anti-homeless-cum-vagrancy laws of their massive number (per-capita) of DISPLACED WORKERS in a city that INTENTIONALLY created a situation where only college students, the upper middle class and out of town computer industry contract workers can afford a place to live.

Yours truly just had a VERY heated discussion with one SCPD Officer Clark about how the city and it's police allow people to camp outside Cinema 9 and coop against the walls of local businesses (again, illegal) without being cited for camping in plain sight... not even legal on one's own property.

About how the 'gentry' never get cited for having their dogs downtown, but traveling youths and the homeless sure do!

I was informed it was 'discretionary'

Let the city be informed that statistics ARE being compiled EASILY proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the "Discretion" officer Clark spoke of is SELECTIVELY APPLIED.

Have a nice day Santa Cruz city council...

Also, let it be noted the ABUSE of America's veterans, in SO MANY different subtle ways, is leading to a confrontation.

December 16 2010... Mark it on your calendar as the day US Veterans are going to MOVE on the White House.
There are children being orphaned, maimed or killed every day, in our name, with our tax dollars; there are soldiers and civilians dying or being maimed for life in order to generate profits for the most odious imperialistic corporate war machine ever, again in our name. How long are we going to let this go on? Until it is too late, until this destructive machine destroys all of us and the planet to boot?

Wikileaks has revealed the documented horror of U.S. war-making, beyond what any of us imagined. It's time veterans and others express our resistance directly and powerfully by putting ourselves on the line, once again--honestly, courageously and without one drop of apology for doing so. It is not we who are the murderers, torturers or pillagers of the earth.

Profit and power-hungry warmongers are destroying everything we hold dear and sacred.

In the early thirties, WW1 vets descended on Washington, D.C, (Historic Footage @ Youtube, 2:39 minutes) to demand their promised bonuses, it being the depths of the Depression. General Douglas MacArthur and his sidekick Dwight Eisenhower disregarded President Herbert Hoover's order and burned their encampment down and drove the vets out of town at bayonet point.

We are today's bonus marchers, and we've come to claim our bonus--PEACE. [In Full]
