TIMELINE FROM 26 JUNE TO 1 SEPTEMBER

 

 

Over the summer, the most important security and intelligence

news was obviously the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. That "small

war" was started and "finished" with a ceasefire and the

arrival of United Nations forces in such a short period of time

that other major ongoing developments don't seem to have been

profoundly modified. For example, the Israeli military

intervention in the Gaza Strip has not ended and the underlying

reasons for that conflict have not been confronted or resolved.

The same is true of the Iraq war and the new war in Afghanistan

against the Taliban and their allies.

 

In our last issue before the summer break, we mentioned the

suicides of three persons held captive by the US military at

Guantanamo and the following reactions calling for the closure

of "Gitmo". Bush White House policies concerning torture,

kidnapping and secret detention have continued to occupy

headlines in the US media and resulted in some changes.

Similarly, Pentagon problems with cases to murder and rape in

Iraq have continued to gain prominence in the US, resulting in

several legal cases. At the same time, open resistance by

members of the military to Bush White House's war in Iraq seems

to have reached a level where it can no longer be ignored by

the major press.

 

With the primary election defeat of pro-war conservative

Democrat and former vice-presidential candidate, Senator Joe

Lieberman, and November US Congressional elections coming, all

these security and intelligence developments will become

increasingly important and probably occupy more and more space

in the US and international media.

CHATHAM HOUSE REPORT ON IRAN

 

 

Iran's influence in the Middle East has increased as a result

of strategic political and military errors by the Bush White

House, according to a report titled "Iran, It's Neighbours and

Regional Crisis" which was published on 23 August by the

influential London-based Royal Institute for International

Studies (RIIS), also know as Chatham House.

ITALY - ADAMO BOVE

 

 

According to a report by Paolo Pontoniere and Jeffrey Klein

(0819 Alternet/New America Media, Two Strange Deaths in

European Wiretapping Scandal), European investigators are

tracking the mysterious deaths of two security experts who had

uncovered extensive spyware in their telecommunications firms.

Just after noon on Friday, 21 July, Adamo Bove -- head of

security at Telecom Italia, the country's largest

telecommunications firm -- told his wife he had some errands to

run as he left their Naples apartment. Hours later, police

found his car parked atop a freeway overpass. Bove's body lay

on the pavement some 100 feet below.

PRO-DEM REPUBLICANS, DIEBOLD, PLAME & OTHER NEWS

 

 

When the president asks a senior administration official to lie

about a major catastrophe and Republican senators submit

falsified evidence to the Supreme Court, there is little to

wonder about why Republican Congressmen calls for a Democrat

Congress, say the GOP has lost its way and oppose the Bush

White House on the Iraq war.

IRAN - ANOTHER "YELLOW CAKE" DECEPTION

 

ANOTHER "YELLOW CAKE" DECEPTION

 

 

The conclusion of a 19 July report on a United Nation's

investigation into Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program, and

the country's attempts to procure and enrich weapons-grade

uranium, states that a shipment of uranium 238 was transported

by road from the Lubumbashi mine, in the Democratic Republic of

Congo, in October 2005, through Zambia to Tanzania where it was

discovered during a routine check by Tanzanian customs

officials. The report, which is under consideration by the UN

sanctions committee, chaired by Oswaldo de Rivero, also states

that the Tanzanian government provided "limited data" on three

other shipments of radioactive materials seized in Dar es

Salaam since the mid-1990s.
