Scooter Libby Was Not Arrested (tags)

Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby, Vice President Cheney’s Chief of Staff, on Oct. 28, 2005. There may be turn out to be similarities between the two legal matters, both prosecuted by Chicago U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, but there is little similarity in the treatment of the two men. To argue that Libby and Blagojevich were treated alike is false.

This important article by Captain Eric May, founder of the renowned cyber-intelligence antiwar group, Ghost Troop, was published in abridged form by the Lone Star Iconoclast, which is the paper of record for Crawford, Texas, where George W. Bush has his summer residence. It is most striking because it analyzes the dangers of a Bush terror strike in the near future, stating that Texas is the foremost target. What was published by the Iconoclast is an abridgement of the original. As you'll find from what's below, this original version contains invaluable insights on the latest advances of the American 911 Truth Movement. It is also quite specific as to the debt the "infowar" community of 911 researchers (Captain May included) owe to Indymedia.

Creative protest - 500 pairs of Army boots stand empty in Chicago Fed. plaza (tags)
Finally... a CREATIVE ACT to engage the public and make people think. Demonstrations are fine... but what we really need are hundreds, thousands, of creative works that intervene in the mass consciousness. An anonymous public art that speaks truth to power and dares to envision a different world. Mass political struggle is one thing... but profound, insightful, and bold cultural work paves the way to a world at last inhabitable. LET A THOUSAND FLOWERS BLOOM! No more business as usual... turn the city streets into open air art galleries! In this Reuters photograph by Frank Polich, Viet Nam Veteran Eddie Randolph looks over 500 pairs of boots laid out in Chicago's Federal plaza, January 21, 2004. The boots were placed there to remember the U.S. soldiers killed in the War in Iraq.
