I can remember saying, on this very site in fact, and on 7th March 2007, that the CIA (Central Intelligence Organisation) was acting like a terrorist organisation and by the looks of things,
I was damned right.

"
So the CIA looked like a terrorist organisation, smelled like one, then it was and is still is one.
A secret report, only released days ago, highlight incidents whereby CIA operatives 'interviewed' various so-called 'high-value' prisoners through techniques that were, apart from being in breach of International Law and the Geneva Convention, also inhumane and highly improper.

Try these instances.

One prisoner was threatened with the rape of his mother, the other threatened with his wife and kids being killed, another one was hooded while some bloody halfwit started up a chainsaw near his head and yet another one was threatened with a loaded weapon aimed at his head.

And indeed there were more incidents.

Add to these cases other activities that the CIA, with the full

First of all, all those responsible, including Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheeney and Rice as well as the operatives involved should be hauled before an International Court...
knowledge of the Bush administration, and one can only conclude that the CIA adopted and practiced terrorism methods and tactics.

So the CIA looked like a terrorist organisation, smelled like one, then it was and is still is one.

So what now?

First of all, all those responsible, including Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheeney and Rice as well as the operatives involved should be hauled before an International Court to be tried with breaches of International Law, the Geneva Convention and other conventions to which the U.S. is a signatory.

The CIA should, and now will be, excluded from interviews involving high-value prisoners. Any statement, evidence given by and against any of the prisoners involved, is now no longer sound evidence in law and the cases against these people can no longer be regarded as fair justice, regardless of what they may or may not have engaged in.

I indeed, would go so far as the CIA being 'listed' as a terrorist organisation meaning that those supporting, funding or otherwise supporting the CIA, would and perhaps should be prosecuted.

It all goes to show. Justice U.S.-style under the Bush administration was rough justice indeed.

And that's the way it is.

GOVERNMENTS ABUSING PRINCIPLES OF ANTI-TERRORISM LAWS

When the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York occurred, the immediate aftermath, in terms of revised and additional anti-terrorism legislation just had to be put in place. Many countries, if not most, all revised their legislation to suit their own specific needs regardless of the fact that some of those could well be regarded as dubious in terms of their justification.

IRAN - STUFFED BY RELIGIOUS FANATICISM

What is it with so-called religious leaders that even entices them into running countries and stuffing them in the process? Their motivation has certainly has nothing to do with religion but rather more to do with their hunger for power, in my view.

Bali. Indonesia 18 August 2009

Bali is perhaps one of the world's best known tourism destinations and while I have no great love for Bali as a resort destination, I do admire Balinese culture and some of the scenery in the more outlying areas.

Vanuatu is a small island nation located in the Western Pacific east of Australia. Consisting of numerous small islands, the country was once ruled by both the British and the French when it was then known as the New Hebrides.

DANGEROUS SKIES Airlines and Governments Cutting Corners

Given the parlous state of the world-wide aviation industry at the moment, I am not surprised that crashes such as recent crash events with the various types of aircraft ranging from Airbus A330s to Twin Otters are appearing to have become more common.
