Pentagon won’t name 60 percent of detainees it says returned to terrorism

By John Byrne

Published: June 10, 2009

According to an analysis by a New Jersey law professor, the Pentagon’s recent survey alleging that one in seven Guantanamo Bay prisoners return to terrorism is deeply flawed.

His analysis also reveals the Pentagon has refused to identify 60 percent of the men they claim have returned to terrorism, saying the information is classified.

The latest Pentagon recidivism analysis documents 74 recidivists, but lacks 45 names, adding that of the 29 names given, only half are labeled “confirmed” recidivists. Seton Hall University Professor Mark Denbeaux, who wrote the report, also alleges the analysis includes men who were never held at Guantanamo.

All told, 45 of 74 is 61 percent.

The Defense Department “has issued ‘recidivism’ numbers again, and again they are wrong and make no sense either independently or in comparison with the DoD’s previous numbers, definitions, names or reports,” Denbeaux said in a statement.

Cindy Sheehan - March to Bush's Home in Dallas

On Monday, June 8 2009, North Texans for 9/11 Truth joined Cindy Sheehan, Code Pink, The Dallas Peace Center, and other concerned citizens in a march and protest to the home neighborhood of George W Bush in Dallas, Texas. While the sweat poured off the marchers in the late afternoon sun, things also heated up for Bush and his friends.

In this 6 minute video, Cindy Sheehan delivers a powerful speech in front of the street leading to Bush’s home. Some very profound statements are made – points which we all should make note of.

Glenn Beck And Others Are Lying About The 9/11 Truth Movement

Today, sadly, someone went into the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. and started firing. My condolences to everyone that was affected.

Glenn Beck and other individuals are making sure to point out the fact that he was an alleged member of the 9/11 Truth Movement, although I've never heard of the guy so Glenn is lying when he says that he was a hero.

The Current Battle against State Secrets Privilege: ‘Sanitization’ is not the answer By Sibel Edmonds

During the past few months I have been actively following the latest activity on the state secrets privilege (SSP). First, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this issue of extreme importance to our civil liberties and constitutional rights was finally getting long-over-due and deserved attention from the media. After all, the memories of fighting SSP in the federal courts all the way up to the Supreme Court, holding press conferences together with the ACLU to bring needed media attention to this draconian abuse, making the rounds in Congress to have them address this ‘privilege’ through legislation to restrict its misuse and abuse, are still fresh and vivid for me.

Fitzgerald threatens to sue publisher over book

By MIKE ROBINSON
AP Legal Affairs Writer

CHICAGO (AP) -- The top federal prosecutor in Chicago is threatening to sue publisher HarperCollins, calling a book about the war on terrorism that focuses in part on cases he handled "a deliberate lie masquerading as the truth."

If HarperCollins publishes the new edition of "Triple Cross" by Peter Lance this month "and it defames me or casts me in a false light, HarperCollins will be sued," Patrick Fitzgerald said in a letter to the New York-based company.

The book focuses on, among other things, major terrorism cases that Fitzgerald prosecuted when he was an assistant U.S. attorney in New York in the 1990s.

Its content goes beyond normal criticism, which "goes with the territory" for public figures, Fitzgerald told The Associated Press on Monday.
