Gitmo Inmate Fights To Remain In US Custody

Posted by Casey on July 31, 2007

This is intriguing to say the least. The guy is afraid that if he is sent home … he will be tortured and killed. Wait … that doesn’t make sense. I thought he was being tortured at Gitmo?

Fox News:

An inmate of Guantanamo Bay who spends 22 hours each day in an isolation cell is fighting for the right to stay in the notorious internment camp.

Ahmed Belbacha fears that he will be tortured or killed if the United States goes ahead with plans to return him to his native Algeria.

The London Times reported that Belbacha, who lived in Britain for three years, has filed an emergency motion at the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., asking for his transfer out of Guantanamo to be halted. He was cleared for release from Camp Delta in February and his lawyers believe that his return to Algerian custody is imminent.

Belbacha says that if he returns to Algeria, he faces the threat of torture by security services and murder by Islamist terrorists.

Zachary Katznelson, senior counsel with the human rights lawyers Reprieve and Belbacha’s lawyer, has asked the US courts to block any transfer.

I guess torture American style isn’t that bad after all.

Second Christian Hostage Confirmed Dead

Posted by Casey on July 31, 2007

There was speculation that the Taliban executed a second Korean hostage yesterday. Today, the body was found.

Fox News:

Police discovered the body of a second South Korean hostage slain by the Taliban in central Afghanistan while the group threatened Tuesday to kill more hostages if their demands were not met by Wednesday, the latest of several deadlines.

South Korea, meanwhile, pleaded with the international community to set aside the normal practice of refusing to cave into hostage-takers’ demands, as it urged a peaceful resolution to a standoff. Twenty-one South Koreans remain captive.

While I sympathize with South Korea, you can’t cave in to this activity. It will only put more people at risk in the future. As tragic as this is … these people knew there was a risk of this happening, and chose to go anyway.

What we need to do is use every resource available to find them (hopefully alive), and make the kidnappers pay. We have to send a stern message that we will not negotiate … we will kill.

UN Will Finally Send Peacekeepers To Darfur

Posted by Casey on July 31, 2007

It sure did take a long time to finally do the right thing. Unfortunately, the peacekeepers are likely not going to accomplish much if they meet resistance. The have a history of abandoning their mission when things get tough. I do wish them all the best, and hopefully they can be successful.

Fox News:

The U.N. Security Council approved a 26,000-strong peacekeeping force for Darfur on Tuesday to try to help end four years of fighting that has killed more than 200,000 people in the conflict-wracked Sudanese region.

The force — the first joint peacekeeping mission by the African Union and the United Nations — will replace the beleaguered 7,000-strong AU force now on the ground in Darfur no later than Dec. 31. The council urged that the AU-U.N. “hybrid” force achieve “full operational capability and force strength as soon as possible thereafter.”

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called it a “historic and unprecedented resolution” that will send “a clear and powerful signal” of the U.N.’s commitment to help to the people of Darfur and the surrounding region “and close this tragic chapter in Sudan’s history.”

Let’s hope this will not be a revisit of Rwanda.

Vegans Won’t Have Sex With Meat Eaters

Posted by Casey on July 31, 2007

I realize this is not really news worthy as no one cares what these vegans think, but I thought I would take the opportunity to point out some hypocrisy.

Some Paper:

No sex, please, you’re a carnivore.

A new phenomenon in New Zealand is taking the idea of you are what you eat to the extreme.

Vegansexuals are people who do not eat any meat or animal products, and who choose not to be sexually intimate with non-vegan partners whose bodies, they say, are made up of dead animals.

The title of the piece is “Carnivore Sex Off The Menu.” I hate to point out the obvious, but people who eat meat aren’t carnivores … they’re omnivores. Just like all humans are by design.

I would also like to point out that there is no human body that is free of something that was once alive. Even the strictest vegans are responsible for some member of the animal kingdom dying. Even if it’s only an insect, but I guess the poor insects don’t get the love from vegans.

Cruelty-Free Consumption in New Zealand: A National Report on the Perspectives and Experiences of Vegetarians and other Ethical Consumers asked 157 people nationwide about everything from battery chickens to sexual preferences.

Many female respondents described being attracted to people who ate meat, but said they did not want to have sex with meat-eaters because their bodies were made up of animal carcasses.

Again, there is no such thing a cruelty-free consumption. Everything we take into our bodies has some form of life on it, and thus dies.

One vegan respondent from Christchurch said: “I believe we are what we consume, so I really struggle with bodily fluids, especially sexually.”

Another Christchurch vegan said she found non-vegans attractive, but would not want to be physically close to them.

“I would not want to be intimate with someone whose body is literally made up from the bodies of others who have died for their sustenance,” she said.

This is where it gets funny, and very hypocritical.

The first lady sounded like a prude, and I won’t address her issue with bodily fluids. The second, however, intrigues me.

She won’t have sex with someone who eats meat because something “died for their sustenance?” Well, I would refuse to have sex with her because her body is full of others who’ve died for HER sustenance. Plants are, after all, living, breathing, feeling creatures. How could I live with myself knowing that she not only was willing to kill a living creature, but to torture said creature by pulling off its equivalent to fingers, and arms?

Nichola Kriek could understand people not wanting to get too close to non-vegan or non-vegetarians.

“When you are vegan or vegetarian, you are very aware that when people eat a meaty diet, they are kind of a graveyard for animals,” she said.

Yeah, and your body is a graveyard to billions of living organisms … including plants.

I’m Back From The Freedom Concert

Posted by Casey on July 31, 2007


Well, the trip went off without a hitch. My station took about 120 people with us to San Diego to the Hannity Freedom Concert that benefited the Freedom Alliance.

We all had a blast, and we were able to escort Spc. Carter and his wife backstage to meet a bunch of great folks. Spc. Carter just got back from Iraq 5 days before the concert, and we made sure that he and his wife could join us on the trip.

When my station went on stage (the only one) we presented a $10,000 check to Hannity for the Freedom Alliance. The Vegas crowd was only about 120 people, but their cheers for us were deafening!

I’m only going to post a couple of pics from the trip because I don’t like the way most came out. I’m in the green shirt. Please note that this is after a VERY long day.

Harvard Destroys Lancet Study

Posted by Casey on July 25, 2007

We all knew the Lancet faked the data, and it has already been proven… several times. However, to have Harvard destroy it makes me down right giddy.

Loose Change Producer Deserted U.S. Army

Posted by Casey on July 25, 2007

UPDATE:

While I was out of town some of the questions I had about the story were answered. I have also been receiving emails, and comments, in response to the situation saying that Rowe was set up, or referring to the Fox News story that states Rowe proved his innocents. Unfortunately, for Rowe’s supporters his claims appear to be false.

Rowe is claiming this is a paperwork error on the part of the Army, and Rowe says he provided honorable discharge paperwork. The Army is singing a different tune:

A spokeswoman for the 101st Airborne said Rowe is in the system as an Army deserter.

“He was listed as a deserter in 2005,” said Lt. Col. Rumi Nielson-Green, public affairs officer for the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). “What we show is that he was absent without leave in June of 2005 and was dropped from the rolls in July 2005. … He has been apprehended for being a deserter.”

Today Hotair has more:

“According to our files, he is still on active duty,” said Cathy Gramling, a media relations specialist for Fort Campbell, Ky., home of the 101st…

A source close to Rowe’s family has said he was at the end of his active-duty enlistment in the summer of 2005 and was trying to avoid serving a second tour of duty in Iraq under the Army’s stop-loss policy when he went AWOL. He returned to Fort Campbell that summer to clear up the matter but left for good after he was told he would be sent to Iraq, the source said.

That is a far cry from an honorable discharge that Rowe has been claiming. All in all this is very confusing, and it should be noted that the Army said there is a possibility that this is an error. Errors are nothing new to the paper trail the military keeps on people, but having sources familiar with Rowe saying he went AWOL, then tried to fix it, then went AWOL again doesn’t look good.

Original Post:

I have a private detective in my family, and was going to do this investigation myself. I just didn’t have the funds. Korey Rowe’s story never did add up, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt. As I do with all soldiers until there is evidence to contradict their story.

In a world where the media does a thorough background on anyone … why didn’t they do one on Rowe?

We now need to find out when he deserted the Army, and if his claims of deployments were legitimate.

Hotair:

An Oneonta man who helped produce a 9/11 conspiracy documentary that became an Internet hit was arrested Monday for allegedly deserting the Army.

Korey Rowe, 24, a veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq, was picked up by deputies at about 10:45 p.m. Monday, Otsego County Sheriff Richard Devlin Jr. said…

Rowe was arrested on a “military warrant” that Devlin said was brought to the attention of deputies by the Oneonta Police Department, who received information from a source outside of that department…

After deputies received the information from Oneonta police, they reached out to the Army, and officials from Fort Knox faxed a copy of the warrant, deputies said…

He is being held without bail in the Otsego County jail and is waiting to be picked up by U.S. Army officials, Devlin said.

Do you think Avery and crew will release yet another version of “Loose Change” to write out Rowe’s involvement?

Britney’s Erratic Behavior Continues

Posted by Casey on July 25, 2007

Look, can anyone really be surprised by this.

She was turned into a cash cow by her mother, exploited as a sex object when she was in her early teens, was criticized by her fan base because she grew up into a super-hottie, and she’s never had sex with a real man (Timberlake, K-Fed). Who could blame her for having a meltdown?

Man Arrested For Calling 911 292 Times Because He Was Out Of Minutes

Posted by Casey on July 25, 2007

So was he bored or something? What was he talking to the operators about?

PNJ.Com:

A 21-year-old man was arrested Tuesday and accused of making 292 false calls to 911 since July 1.

Escambia deputies arrested Cheveon Alonzo Ford after a 911 call was made about 10 a.m. from a cell phone, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Ford told deputies he made the calls because he didn’t have any minutes on his phone and “911 is a free call,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

Sounds like an odd fetish if it isn’t a flat out lie.

Beyonce Takes A Head Dive On Stage

Posted by Casey on July 25, 2007

Man, that would suck. Apparently Beyonce tripped on her trench coat, and fell face first onto some stairs. She then slid down about 12 steps … face first. Beyonce is a real trooper though. She got up and continued to dance even though she was bleeding.

She then asked the audience to not post the video to YouTube. I don’t know if it made it to YouTube yet, but there are images of the fall online already. Nice to see that her fans respect her wishes huh?
