MUSLIM WOMEN RISING!
Taliban should be overthrown by the uprising of Afghan nation
The above statement is from RAWA ( -Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan ) & was pulled from their "documents section". You may have seen some of the spokeswomen on "Oprah" -as they say: "If you are freedom-loving and anti-fundamentalist, you are with RAWA."
* -In my opinion, Restoring Democracy in Afghanistan will require the "political savvy" & leadership abilities of RAWA Women: While the tough, and undefeated Northern Alliance, with their "weapons savvy" will be crucial to US ground forces; they are not well organized, or resolutely aligned with one goal. The Women of RAWA have ONE GOAL: RESTORE DEMOCRACY in Afghanistan!
* -Women, until 1996, in Afghanistan, lived under Constitutional Democracy. They were contributors to the work force on every level. The Taliban has, in effect, "put them under house arrest", and this has hurt everyone in Afghanistan.
* -We can hope that the Oil Pipeline, and Oil & Mineral resources in Afghanistan will be the source of a new boost to the economy of a new Democracy in Afghanistan . -Oil companies are lusting after it, and would use our US military for their own purpose.( *see "The oil behind Bush and Son's campaigns" -story, below )

This statement -- already signed by more than 150 organizations (including CDT), 300 law professors, and 40 computer scientists -- calls on lawmakers to consider proposals calmly and deliberately with a determination not to erode the liberties and freedoms that are at the core of the American way of life.

He and his so-called 'inner circle' control virtually all the nation's significant trade. . . . Liberia has been described as Charles Taylor Inc. This corporation is corrupt to its core."...

"...I am informed that Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation and other clinics and offices have received threat letters that contain an unidentified powder at more than 130 locations around the U.S. The letters, received the week of October 15, claim to contain anthrax. Some of the letters mention the "Army of God," a group that has claimed responsibility for past attacks on women's health providers. It is also disturbing that the envelopes had false return addresses from the U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Marshal's Office and read "Time Sensitive - Urgent Security Notice - Open Immediately..."

US militia, not Osama behind Anthrax scare: Expert says
Clive Williams, a specialist in terrorism at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, believes the evidence points to right-wing US militia. "I think the first instances of it, the ones involving media, were more likely to have been caused by extremist militia in the US who have shown an interest in anthrax in the past and tried to acquire it," he told AFP.

Experts say a bio-attack takes sophisticated science
On the Anthrax Cases in Fla -
To any didn't watch the experts on TV or listen on C-Span -10/4: it is virtually impossible for a crop duster to spread biological weapons: as a matter of fact, it even hard for a state sponsored facility to deliver such weapon. ie. Crop Dusters are set at 100 micron dispersal, to distribute effective bio(such as anthrax) it takes a 10 micron setting... Terrorists do not have this capability. As to Chemical Weapons, it would take huge amounts to pollute a water supply, and then the filtration systems that are normal would remove them. I think it's fair to know these facts, as we don't need false fears now.

-But State Dept. Continues to Block Using Assets for Terror Victims

Oct 11-12
* Altho it was wisely indicated that any anti-terrorism bill would require strict "money-laundering legislation" such as the one just passed by the Senate Banking Committee; Banks rushed to lobby against key provisions: *after all the rhetoric against money laundering by the white house, Bush seems happy with the new House bill, without the "laundering" provisions: could it be that there are concerns about what will be discovered in the FBI investigation of the Carlyle Group which includes principals in the Bush, & Bin Ladin Families, ex Sec of State Baker, and ex-Defense Sec. Carlucci ? ( stories below )
Banks Seek to Alter Bill ( Thursday )
* Under cover of darkness Thursday night, Attorney General, Ashcroft, met with key Republican leaders. They scrapped the bi-partisan bill that was carefully debated for weeks, and replaced it with a new bill, that was not read(but barely scanned by most House Members), submitting it for a vote on Friday. Judiciary Committee members said the new bill provided vastly expanded powers to law enforcement without the checks that they had insisted upon.
Bill OKd to expand anti-terror powers
* One of the important "checks" in the bill that was discarded, was judicial supervision of any "secret searches and wiretaps". Additionally, the 2years review was extended to 5 years. Today in the US congress there appears to be no will to defend the very freedoms Mr. Bush says we are fighting for. These actions are without precedent in US history and bear the gravest implications for the social fabric of the nation.
Panic On The Hill
* House Republicans on the Ways and Means Committee spent all day Friday ramming through a $100 billion tax-cut package filled with bonuses for corporations, wealthy Americans and others least in need of help. Republicans waited until 10:30 p.m. the night before to spring the bill on Democrats, reverting to the poisonous old practices of steamrolling legislation through and, this time, exploiting a tragic national emergency in the process.

Herb Block Dies, at 91 of Pneumonia(Oct 7,2001)

Herb Block, the renowned political cartoonist, -one of the kindest people that I have ever met. I drove him regularly to the Washington Post. I played all my newest recordings for him. He insisted on purchasing them all. Once I protested, "Herb! You already have most of the stuff on that tape: I'll get you a copy of the whole compilation, when it is complete." "Nope", he replied, "I want THAT tape!" It was useless to resist, he handed me a pile of bills(probably about $30) and I gave him the tape.
It was a few years of driving him back and forth, before I got to realize that he never forgot his friends, and anyone, from any walk of life, could be his friend. He was always glad to see you, and always interested in what life dealt you, personally. He was quick to respond to my semi-sophmoric humor with quips of his own. He was the sharpest political critic, and saw thru the artful deceptions of this era, quickly. I am very sorry that he had to go now, as we kind of need him, especially.
I only saw him a couple of times, this last year, as I quit working the 2 way radio dispatch. This is my regret. If I had known that his "number was coming up", I would have wished to get close to a little more of his wisdom. On my "Still Warrior" CD Credits, published in early '98, it says "Special Thanks to Herb Block, Washington Post". -I did not shed any tears, hearing that he had passed: I did have regrets. I will miss his easy laugh and twinkley eyes; his compassion: I will miss shoving my latest layout, or Newsflash from the Internet thru the Green door, in Georgetown, where he had lived. He slipped away, on us all, while we were still mourning Sept 11. I guess I feel a sort of vacuum, -but to me he represented a sort of living saint. I guess I feel that he is still there,...listening.

THE MEDIA COVER-UP OF THE GORE VICTORY
News Consortium's Report is now overdue! they are withholding the fact of Gores SUBSTANTIAL victory in Fla., with the excuse that the "compilers of info" are committed elsewhere, in response to Sept 11.
Recounting That Recount, Detail by Detail by Detail

Waxman to Colin Powell and Tom Ridge: Stop Allowing Exports of Sniper/Terrorist Guns
Waxman to Ridge(pdf file of actual letter)
Waxman to Powell(pdf file of actual letter)
"In short, American citizens' voices have been seriously prevented from influencing government for some time, with campaign financing practices directly responsible. Has anyone noticed, for example, how extremists in the administration and Congress since the terrorist attack are quick to promote "big government" when it comes to limiting civil rights and speech, limiting media criticism and humor, establishing increased powers of police, FBI, judicial and executive branch, bailing out airlines, etc?
Any serious attempt to end terrorism must begin with OUR government's acknowledgement that we have systematically ignored danger signs of terrorism, both international and domestic, in order to promote of the sale--and proliferation--of small arms for economic gains. The State Dept. has always had the power to stop the distribution of these 50mm Rifles, that are deadly at thousands of yards!

Identities of Hijackers Questioned(Iraqi, NOT Saudi, identified)
1. "Five of the hijackers were using stolen identities and investigators are studying the possibility that the entire suicide squad consisted of imposters."
2. *"On one of the convicted bombers of the WTC: "In press interviews with him in prison before he was convicted he said he was a "citizen of Islam" and spoke very good Arabic. And the Arabs he lived with in New York before the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 when he fled to Pakistan said he spoke Iraqi Arabic and his given name was Raashid. They called him Raashid the Iraqi". ..."And under this name he was not Pakistani but Iraqi." "
Somehow, this all makes sense; that the source of our attacks was based in Iraq, "state sponsored", and Sadaam Hussein at it's source, rather than the exiled Saudis & the Taliban, alone; or "non-state sponsored". Can anyone imagine the way Sadaam Hussein is laughing at this confusion? Hussein will not laugh as the coalition against terrorism turns toward him!

Reality Check! : 1. DUring the Bombings, US Military dropped 37,000 Food Packets each day. 2. There are an estimated 4,000,000 starving people in Afghanistan. 3. Altho $320,000,000 has been committed to Food Aid for Afghanistan, it will take complete involvement of ground relief agencies to deliver an effective relief!
Relief Agencies have condemned the food drops: relief agencies beg for a halt in bombling so they can start trucking in food, as winter will come soon, and with it, starvation, -saying "the attached statements in the food packets will likely be considered propoganda, and hurt the real relief effort for the future"

We can hope that the Oil Pipeline, and Oil resources in Afghanistan will be the source of a new boost to the economy of Afghanistan's new Democracy. Oil companies are lusting after it, and would use our military for their own purpose. Women until 1996, in Afghanistan, lived under Constitutional Democracy. They were contributors to the work force on every level. The Taliban has "put them under house arrest", and this has hurt everyone in Afghanistan.

The word "Jihad" has been misinterpreted a lot, lately. Bigots use it to mislabel muslims and Islam as hateful & destructive. Criminals, such as Osama Bin Laden & those he has inspired, use it for self vindication; but crimes against humanity are NOT Jihad. Jehad or Jihad has a great significance in Islam and in the life of a Muslim. The "big jihad" is the struggle within. Please study the real meanings HERE, and HERE.


Osama digs himself in Pamir
Click on "News" on left at this site for more info FROM Afghanistan
*Note: Thanks to Pakistan's leader for firing the "Pro-Taliban" Generals, and Intelligence Officers! Altho there are Taliban supporters in Pakistan, the majority of Pakistanis support the Government's position of Solidarity with the US in the endeavor to stamp out Terrorism. The Washington Post newspaper revealed two failed attempts to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden during President Clinton's term in office. According to officials quoted in the newspaper, the CIA secretly trained 60 Pakistani commandos to prepare for a mission inside Afghanistan. The operation was ended after the Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif was deposed in a military coup two years ago. Sudan offer The paper also said that Sudan had offered to hand over Bin Laden when he was living there in 1996. At that time, the US authorities believed that they did not have enough evidence to put him on trial. They failed to persuade Saudi Arabia to take him into custody. So Bin Laden was expelled to Afghanistan, where he is thought to have been based ever since.

The worst atrocity ever committed in "christian" history, was the "Crusade" attacks on Jerusalem that murdered All semetic people there, including Moslems and Jews, it is well known worldwide. -We don't study this topic in American Christian Schools. *Please remember that Hitler's Government of Germany killed 6 million Jews. -Don't you think that Israel has a firm right to exist in peace?
