No WMDs, No Terrorists - A US military commander has confirmed that US forces in Iraq still have not been able to confirm any links between Iraq and Al Quaeda, even though media reports consitently refer to those fighting the US occupation as "terrorists". The US military consistently deny administration reports of "internationalized" Iraqi resistance. The truth is that the invasion of Iraq had nothing to do with terrorism.

British Airways says none of its pilots made contact with George Bush's plane during its secret Thanksgiving flight to Baghdad, contradicting White House reports of a mid-air exchange. It's become a familiar pattern - the lie gets the big news, the truth comes out a few days later and is barely mentioned. No wonder Fox and Murdoch love Bush & Co.

Diebold backs down - once again. Their threats of legal action appear to be an effort to stifle debate on voting machines before the 2004 elections.

The US Economy Is Not As Strong As It Seems - "The borrowing spree on which the US administration has embarked makes the Reagan balance of payments deficits look like child's play". Will the markets get serious about debt before the 2004 elections?

PS - even Mahatma Gandhi was once called a "terrorist".
