In The News:
Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.
» Radiation has been detected in milk and water in California and Washington state from the Fukushima reactor disaster. The US government says the level is 1/5000 of what we consider dangerous. Do you feel better about it now? There are traces of radiation 40 km from the wreckage of the EX-Nuclear power generating facility. That's two times the distance called for by the evacuation zone. So what can be done to make it better? NOTHING! The #2 reactor has melted down and all that remains to be done is bury it under a huge mound of dirt for the next 100 years or so... then you can go play golf.
» In the War... The Libyan War... the town of Brega is back in the hands of al Gadaffi's army and the fighting in Misrata continues with the government forces engaged in a full-blown artillery assault which is evading NATO bombings if they occur by positioning their artillery in buildings, where it can be rolled out for use and rolled back in, effectively hiding it from surveillance. The Libyan Foreign Minister has defected and flown from Tunisia to London where he was given political asylum, but NOT protection from criminal charges. He was in charge of some Libyan 'pogroms', perhaps the assassinations of Libyan dissidents overseas, but was also responsible for negotiations which successfully caused the removal of Libya's weapons of mass destruction.
» In regard to the commentary... The CIA IS NOT just standing around waiting for intel to come to them... As a matter of fact, they're coordinating OUR operations with the 'rebels'.
One must consider that U.S. Army Special Forces are a DeFacto arm of the CIA in wartime, and according to reports they're already in-theatre despite Congressional confusion as to whether or not there are 'boots on the ground in Libya'...
United States, Britain and France send hundreds of “defence advisors” to train and support rebelsThis is the guy they came to assist: A CIA Commander For Libyan Rebels. McClatchy has more: Libyan rebel leader spent much of past 20 years in suburban Virginia (Vienna... Where all the CIA expats live)
The United States, Britain and France have sent several hundred “defence advisors” to train and support the anti-Gadhafi forces in oil-rich Eastern Libya where “rebels armed groups” have apparently taken over
According to an exclusive report confirmed by a Libyan diplomat in the region “the three Western states have landed their “special forces troops in Cyrinacia and are now setting up their bases and training centres” to reinforce the rebel forces who are resisting pro-Qaddafi forces...

"Big Media" Matt Yglesias @ ThinkProgress connects those same dots:
Good Morning Libya» Maybe it will be replaced with nuclear power, whose technology in the U.S. is monopolized by oil industry players... President Obama gave a little-covered energy policy speech yesterday where he called for a 33% reduction in the use of oil 2025. That would leave the US still using 6.5 million gallons of foreign oil.
Today’s New York Times features Mark Mazzetti and Eric Schmitt reporting that America’s no boots on the ground humanitarian intervention in Libya features ground-based CIA agents (presumably wearing tennis shoes) coordinating with Libyan rebels so as to better be able to assist them with tactical air support. Chris Adams for McClatchy also has a story out headlined “Libyan rebel leader spent much of past 20 years in suburban Virginia”, which is presumably because he really liked the Tyson’s Corner mall and has nothing to do with the location of the CIA or the Pentagon.
Reuters also had it that Obama had signed a secret order to provide the Libyan rebels with weapons, but that presumably meant humanitarian weapons rather than the kind you use to kill enemy soldiers and resolve post-revolutionary political disputes with... [More @ ThinkProgress]
» According to Vice President Joe Biden Congress is 'making progress' on the 2011 budget with a target of $33 billion dollars in cuts. The Republicans target is $60 billion dollars with a vote due next Friday. Currently there will be cuts in entitlements like Social Security, Medicare, and the biggest entitlement of them all, the the defense budget, which unlike the former items has LOTS of things to cut out of the federal budget. Details @ Congress.org.
In OTHER Current & Upcoming News:
The brothers and sisters are NOT happy:
No, Barack Obama isn’t white, but he may as well be. He is president precisely because he assured voters that he would not change the complexion of their belief systems. If he didn’t fulfill the deeply ingrained belief that might makes right as long as America, a country thought of as white, is in charge of world affairs, he would never have become the president.

Attack of the Cruise Missile Liberals
Freedom Rider: Liberals Love War
Americans are warlike – as long as they think they can be victorious. These nominal Democrats and Republicans “differ only on who they want to see doing the dominating.” Today, a Black Democrat is the head killer in charge, allowing the likes of Ed Schultz, Bill Maher and Juan Cole to endorse the criminal assault on Libya. When the chips are down, fraudulent anti-war liberals show their true racist, Manifest Destiny-loving colors. “The true anti-war movement must reawaken itself and hit the streets in the hundreds of thousands.”
by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley
“The desire for America to dominate the rest of the world is prevalent among most of its citizens, regardless of party affiliation.”
Peace loving Americans are few and far between. The vast majority of our citizens see nothing wrong with their government killing masses of people as long as the rationale sounds high minded and noble.
The love of bloodshed is generally connected with the right wing in this country, but nothing could be further from the truth. The desire for America to dominate the rest of the world is prevalent among most of its citizens, regardless of party affiliation. Those citizens differ only on who they want to see doing the dominating. Republicans are ecstatic when a Republican president drops bombs, sends drones on killing missions or occupies other nations. Democrats are equally enthusiastic when one of their own does the same... [More @ Black Agenda Report]
(...and try not to let your government kill too many 'dusky natives' in the process OK?)
