911 Unanswered Questions: South Pacific Terror Alert Confirms Part Of 911 Puzzle

- An FBI terror alert has been released in the South Pacific for Wolfgang Bohringer, a German pilot first identified as a "close associate" of Mohamed Atta three years ago in the MadCowMorningNews and the opening chapter to "Welcome to TERRORLAND" in interviews with Atta's former American girlfriend, Amanda Keller. "U.S. authorities have uncovered a plot to set up a flight training school in Kiribati and suspect the man behind it may have had links to September 11 mastermind Mohamed Atta," reported the Associated Press.

Mexico: Julie Webb-Pullman Reports On More Massacres In Mexico

- Monday in Mexico dawned as usual - while Felipe Calderón fiddled (with a guitar), and Andrés Manuel López Obrador celebrated his birthday by charming the ladies and kissing babies, paramilitary groups in Chiapas were doing what they do so well - massacring yet another indigenous community, this time Viejo Velasco Suárez, in the north-eastern zone of the Lacandona, where six women and two newborns were among the eleven indigenous Tseltales and Ch’oles murdered in their beds that morning. See... Human Rights in Mexico – Who Cares? Not U....N. [1] . Correction: Narconews has corrected its initial report on the massacre. See.. Narconews Correction [2]

Stadium Wars: Ron Law In Praise Of Waka Stadium

- As a citizen of the Auckland region, Trevor Mallard's claim that Auckland leaders lacks vision has had some substance up until this morning. The difficulty is knowing which of the schizophrenic Aucklands he is talking about? See... Waka Stadium: I'm Voting Jonathon Gunson for Mayor [1] .

U.S. Midterms: Can George Change His Spots? Apparently Not

- All the talk of bi-partisanship after the midterm elections was really nice, wasn't it? Granted, the only reason conversation got steered in that direction was because the Republican Party absorbed a staggering defeat the Tuesday after last, because George W. Bush had the shattered pieces of his credibility - nay, of his entire tenure to date - handed to him in a small brown paper sack by the American people. But hey, it was good while it lasted. It didn't last. See... William Rivers Pitt: The Same Old George [1] MORE US MIDTERM AFTERMATH COMMENT:

    Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

    It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>

    Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

    Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted. Finally, such an honour is netted, in all likelihood just to shut that overly keen individual up.

    Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology

    It should come as no surprise that the loudest international solidarity that accompanied the continued spate of the killing of Black Americans comes from Palestine; that books have already been written and published by Palestinians about the plight of their Black brethren.
