(UPDATED below — and now UPDATED AGAIN.)
Very busy today elsewhere, so here’s a too-quick round-up of several items that would otherwise get more time and consideration.
Ethiopian Premier Admits Errors on Somalia
Ethiopia’s dictator finds that he too has been hornswoggled by his mentor George W. Bush, saying that, upon reflection, it might not have been a good idea to join Bush’s third “Terror War” regime change operation against Somalia, which has created yet another hellhole of chaos and suffering where violent extremism can breed. His Exalted Tyrannicalness also finds that the CIA-paid Somali warlords who assisted his rapine have not proved to be entirely trustworthy. Continue reading

US university students will not be able to work late at the campus, travel abroad, show interest in their colleagues’ work, have friends outside the United States, engage in independent research, or make extra money without the prior consent of the authorities, according to a set of guidelines given to administrators by the FBI.
Federal agents are visiting some of the New England’s top universities, including MIT, Boston College, and the University of Massachusetts, to warn university heads about the dangers of foreign spies and terrorists stealing sensitive academic research.
Robert Fisk: ‘Abu Henry’ and the mysterious silence
I guess that’s what diplomacy is all about, persuading here, pleading there
Published: 30 June 2007
“Abu Henry” says we may have to remain in Afghanistan for decades to protect Afghans from the Taliban. Our ambassador in Kabul – Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, KCMG, LVO, to be precise – apparently sees no contradiction in this extraordinary prediction.

Hi, Chicken Little here again. But relax. The sky isn’t falling — but it appears to be fixin’ to. What makes me think so? Well that commie rag, The Wall Street Journal told me so. How so?

Part Two, below, examines the disasters that could have been avoided, except for the gross incompetence with which the invasion was conducted. Part Three, next week, will examine the desperation, which now compels various political actors to contemplate drastic action before the Bush/Cheney regime leaves office.)
Part Two: Incompetence
Last month — more than four years after the Bush/Cheney regime’s criminal and immoral invasion — oil rich Iraq was able to produce only 2 million barrels of oil per day, some 500,000 barrels per day less than it produced on the eve of the U.S. invasion. It also produced but an average of 3,700 megawatts of electricity, or some 300 megawatts less than it produced on the eve of the U.S. invasion.

So I turn on the telly this morning and find breathless CNN anchors hyperventilating over the nuclear suicide car weapon of mass destruction discovered smoldering outside of a London nightclub. One report from the scene notes that:
London police were contacted when witnesses saw a Mercedes being driven erratically near London West End night club Tiger Tiger, and the driver jumped out of the automobile and ran away. The car was reported to have two gasoline canisters and be full of nails.
Explosives officers discovered the fuel and nails attached to a “potential means of detonation,” inside the vehicle. Officers “courageously” disabled the trigger by hand, he said. Security sources told CNN that the “relatively crude device” in the first car contained at least 200 liters, or about 50 gallons, of fuel in canisters.
You know what you call a vehicle with 50 gallons of gas? A Cadillac Escalade. The media meltdown over this incident is simply shameful.
