Appeals Panel Bars Detainees From Access to U.S. Courts

Appeals Panel Bars Detainees From Access to U.S. Courts --The decision was a broad victory for the Obama administration in its efforts to hold terrorism suspects overseas for indefinite periods without judicial oversight. 21 May 2010 A federal appeals court ruled Friday that three men who had been detained by the United States military for years without trial in Afghanistan had no recourse to American courts. The detainees, two Yemenis and a Tunisian who say they were captured outside Afghanistan, contend that they are not terrorists and are being mistakenly imprisoned at the American military prison at Bagram Air Base. But a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled unanimously that the three had no right to habeas corpus hearings, in which judges would review evidence against them and could order their release.

House Panel Rejects a Plan to Shift Detainees to Illinois

House Panel Rejects a Plan to Shift Detainees to Illinois 20 May 2010 The House Armed Services Committee has dealt a blow to President Obama's hopes to shutter the military prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, by unanimously approving legislation that would prohibit creating a detention center inside the United States. The administration had asked Congress to approve about $350 million to buy and renovate a nearly empty prison in Thomson, Ill. The White House plan was to empty Guantánamo and transfer its detainees to Illinois - including 48 who would be held without trial as wartime prisoners. But late Wednesday, the House committee unanimously approved a defense bill for 2011 that bans spending money to build or modify any facility inside the United States to house Guantánamo detainees, according to a summary of the bill.

House votes to expand national DNA arrest database By Declan McCullagh 19 May 2010 Millions of Americans arrested for but not convicted of crimes will likely have their DNA forcibly extracted and added to a national database, according to a bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday. By a 357 to 32 vote, the House approved legislation that will pay state governments to require DNA samples, which could mean drawing blood with a needle, from adults "arrested for" certain serious crimes.

Less Toxic Dispersants Lose Out in BP Oil Spill Cleanup

Less Toxic Dispersants Lose Out in BP Oil Spill Cleanup --Dispersant Corexit is manufactured by Nalco Co., whose current leadership includes executives from BP and Exxon 13 May 2010 BP PLC continues to stockpile and deploy oil-dispersing chemicals manufactured by a company with which it shares close ties, even though other U.S. EPA-approved alternatives have been shown to be far less toxic and, in some cases, nearly twice as effective. After the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded and a deepwater well began gushing crude in the Gulf of Mexico three weeks ago, BP quickly marshaled a third of the world's available supply of dispersants, chemicals that break surface oil slicks into microscopic droplets that can sink into the sea... Scientists warn that the dispersed oil, as well as the dispersants themselves, might cause long-term harm to marine life.

NATO force would stop Palestinian attacks on Israel 21 May 2010 A huge deployment of NATO troops in a future Palestinian state may prove crucial in countering fears it would become a base for attacks on Israel.

Biblical values and Confederates promoted in Texas textbook revisions

Biblical values and Confederates promoted in Texas textbook revisions 21 May 2010 American students will learn more about the virtues of free enterprise, Biblical values and the Confederacy's cause, and less about slavery and civil rights in a controversial new curriculum [lies] being pushed through by the Texas school board.

Biting Attack: New Sculpture Shows Polar Bear Eating President Obama's Head

Biting Attack: New Sculpture Shows Polar Bear Eating President Obama's Head 21 May 2010 President Barack Obama is undoubtedly used to biting attacks from the right and even the left. But he probably never expected this. In a new sculpture that's both daring and disturbing, a polar bear is depicted with the president's bloody head hanging from its muzzle. Called "Nemesis," the piece is a statement about the state of the environment -- and how, to a bear, there is no difference between Obama and anyone else. "No human being can escape unfairness," said the artist, Vincent J.F. Huang, via e-mail through his agent.  "We all face the same collective consequences, irrespective of what we do or not do towards the protection of our environment."

A mouse in the (White) House? Mystery rodent disrupts Obama press conference

A mouse in the (White) House? Mystery rodent disrupts Obama press conference 21 May 2010 President Barack Obama was upstaged by a rodent as he spoke on Wall Street legislation. Mr Obama had just begun a Rose Garden statement lauding the end of a US Senate filibuster on his financial overhaul when a rodent dashed out of the bushes to his right, just outside the Oval Office. As photographers snapped away in the sun-drenched garden, the creature scurried straight past the grey podium with the presidential seal and made a bee-line for another set of bushes to Mr Obama's left.

Gulf oil spill: 'Like tracking a serial killer'

Gulf oil spill: 'Like tracking a serial killer' 20 May 2010 A flotilla of shrimp boats skimmed the waters of Brenton Bay at the mouth of the Mississippi Thursday in a desperate attempt to limit the damage to coastal marshes from the long tendrils of oil snaking in from the giant spill. At least three dozen erstwhile shrimp boats, with oil-absorbing booms hanging from their outriggers instead of nets, sopped up oil the color of burnt sienna off the bay. All day, boats soaked up what crude they could, then headed to a mother ship, the engorged booms hanging from the outriggers like dead serpents. Then headed back to capture more oil. Despite the operation, the escalating destruction caused by the encroaching oil was obvious... "This is killing the marsh almost instantly," said P.J. Hahn, the clearly disheartened director of coastal management for Plaquemines Parish, a rural peninsula south of New Orleans jutting into the Gulf of Mexico. "Everything this touches, it kills."
