A lawsuit filed by a Wisconsin couple against their mortgage lender could have major implications for banks should a U.S. appeals court agree that borrowers can cancel their loans en masse when their lenders violate a federal lending disclosure law.

The case began like hundreds of others filed since the U.S. housing boom spawned a rise in sales of adjustable rate loans. Susan and Bryan Andrews of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, claimed that lender Chevy Chase Bank FSB (CCX_pc.N: Quote, Profile, Research) had hidden the true terms of what they believed was a good deal on a low-interest loan.

It’s the End of the World as We know it and I feel FINE #35 (Klein)

Updated: full speech below

Naomi Klein’s speech at the National Conference for Media reform was not included on the conference website. subMedia contacted Free Press, the organizer or the conference, to ask why Klein’s speech could not be found online, and the person explained that Free Press is a non-profit organization and that I should reefer to the disclaimer on their website which reads:

“Despite our best efforts, we feel that some of our speakers encroached on electoral space during their remarks at the National Conference for Media Reform. It is not in our interest to disseminate these recordings. We are reviewing all of our video content and will add that which we determine to be free of electoral statements to this page.”

I don’t quite understand how these things work, but whatever. Two sources have told me the reason Free Press did not include the speech was Klein’s criticism of Barack Obama. It would be pretty fuckin lame if it were true.

But fuck it, I got a hold of a copy of the speech and here it is.

Iraq: New Documents Detail Civilian Deaths Caused by US Forces

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: CIVIC (The Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict)

War victims advocates dismayed at failure to pay for damages

WASHINGTON – July 2 – The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) today released documents from the US Naval Criminal Investigative Services (NCIS) detailing the alleged killing of Iraqi civilians by US Marines. After studying the eight cases, Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict (CIVIC) was dismayed that only one resulted in payment to civilians for damages and called for swift compensation to the victims and their families.

When US forces anywhere cause the death of civilians through wrongful or negligent acts, a law called the Foreign Claims Act authorizes compensation to the victim’s family members. If a Foreign Claims Act award is not appropriate in a particular case, the US military still maintains the ability to offer a “condolence” – usually in the form of a smaller, symbolic payment to the victim’s family that recognizes unintentional harm caused by US combat operations. Though four of the eight victims described in the NCIS files were determined to be civilians, only one family received a claims payment and none were paid condolences. CIVIC called this a mistake.

“These documents tell us that victims and their families are being overlooked by US forces,” said Sarah Holewinski, executive director of CIVIC. As an example, Holewinski cited the case of a man pulled from his home by Marines and shot by the side of the road. The Marines then planted an AK-47 and a shovel on the man to make it appear as though he was an insurgent caught burying an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). The true story was eventually revealed after initial cover-ups and several convictions followed, but compensation to the family (in this case appropriate through the Foreign Claims Act) did not follow.

“Justice doesn’t end in a courtroom,” said Holewinski. “US laws exist to compensate civilians suffering losses. To not use them diminishes their value and further harms the grieving victims, who are left without recognition or assistance long after a case is closed.” CIVIC also noted that the ACLU documents represent only an extremely small number of the many documents the US military refuses to release.

CIVIC is a Washington-based organization that believes civilians harmed in conflict should be recognized and helped by the warring parties involved. In 2005, CIVIC’s founder Marla Ruzicka was killed in Iraq by suicide bomb. CIVIC honors her legacy and strives to sustain her vision.

UN Envoy Rips US Violations in Iraq, Guantanamo, Afghanistan

Rapporteur condemns rights abuses at home, too

UNITED NATIONS: After a two-week fact-finding tour of US prison and detention facilities, a UN human rights investigator has blasted the administration of President George W. Bush for a rash of shortcomings in the country’s flawed justice system and continued violations of the rule of law.

Unleashing a stinging barrage of attacks, Professor Philip Alston, the UN special rapporteur on extra-judicial, summary and arbitrary executions, singles out the existence of racism in the application of the death penalty in the United States, and the lack of transparency in the deaths of prisoners in the Guantanamo Bay detention facility housing suspected terrorists.

Alston, a professor at the New York University School of Law and an outspoken critic of human rights abuses worldwide, also complains about the non-availability of information on civilian casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the refusal of the US Justice Department to prosecute private security contractors who commit unlawful killings.

During his 14-day tour of the United States at the invitation of the administration, he met with federal and state officials, judges and civil society groups in New York, Washington DC, Alabama and Texas.

Alston was particularly critical of the state of Texas which has refused to review the cases of foreign nationals on death row, most of whom had been deprived of the right to consular assistance from their home countries.

He specifically chose to visit Alabama “because it has the highest per capita rate of executions in the United States, and Texas because it has the largest number of executions and prisoners on death row.” Still, 129 individuals waiting on death row have been exonerated across the United States, since 1973, and the number continues to grow.

“Indeed, while I was in Texas, the conviction of yet another person on death row was overturned by the Court of Criminal Appeals,” Alston said.

While in this case DNA testing ultimately prevented the execution of an innocent man, Alston said, others may have been less fortunate.

“In Texas, I met a range of officials and others who acknowledged that innocent people might have been executed,” he said, adding the problem is that a criminal justice system with recognized flaws that the government refuses to address will always be capable of mistakes.

In his report, Alston points out that studies across the United States also suggest racial disparities in the application of the death penalty. In particular, many studies suggest that a defendant is more likely to receive the death penalty when the victim is white, and some studies also suggest that a defendant is more likely to receive the death penalty if he is African American.

“When I raised this issue with federal and state government officials, I was met with indifference or flat denial,” said Alston, who noted that many officials wrote off the results of studies showing racial disparity as being biased because they were written by researchers with anti-death penalty views. “Given what is at stake, there is a need for governments at both the state and federal levels to revisit systematically the concerns about continuing racial disparities,” he added.

Meanwhile, to date, just six of the “enemy combatants” detained at the US detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba have been charged with capital offenses under the Military Commissions Act (MCA). They are being tried before military commissions on war crimes charges, and if convicted, face the death penalty. According to Alston, the United States has an obligation to provide fair trials which afford all essential judicial guarantees.

“The fundamental principles of a fair trial may never be derogated from. But the text of the MCA, which provides the rules which govern the trials, and the experiences of those with whom I met during my mission involved in the trial process to date, indicate clearly that these trials utterly fail to meet the basic due process standards required for a fair trial under international humanitarian and human rights law,” he said.

There have been five reported deaths of detainees at Guantanamo Bay in 2006-07. Four were classified as suicides, and one was attributed to cancer. In the custodial environment, Alston said, a state has a heightened duty and capacity to ensure and respect the right to life. As a result, there is a rebuttable presumption of state responsibility whether through acts of commission or omission in cases of custodial death. The state has an obligation to investigate the deaths, and publicly report on the findings and the evidence upon which the findings are based.

“But the Department of Defense has provided little public information about the causes or circumstance of any of these deaths,” he said.

While it has been reported that autopsies were conducted in each case, the results have not been made public or even provided to the families of the deceased men, he added. It was also reported that the Naval Criminal Investigative Services is conducting investigations into each of the deaths. But over two years since the first deaths, no results of investigations have been released.

In Iraq and Afghanistan, where the US military is considered an occupying power, Alston points to a string of human rights abuses and violations of the rule of law.

The “troublingly opaque character of the US military justice system is well illustrated by a case described to me by witnesses and investigators when I visited Afghanistan,” he said. On March 4, 2007, he recalled, US Marines responded to a suicide attack on their convoy, in which one soldier was wounded, by killing 19 people and wounding many others in the space of a 10-mile retreat.

“I asked the regional commander in Afghanistan what follow-up had occurred. He could not tell me and explained that his unit had just arrived in Afghanistan and that accountability for incidents involving the previous unit was its responsibility and that it had taken all the relevant files when it left the country,” Alston said.

In fact, a Court of Inquiry into the incident proceeded in North Carolina: “Shortly after I returned from Afghanistan, the US military released a short statement on this incident indicating that the commander of US Marine Corps Forces Central Command had conducted a thorough review of the report of a Court of Inquiry and had determined that the soldiers had acted appropriately and in accordance with the rules of engagement and tactics, techniques and procedures in place at the time in response to a complex attack.” Unsurprisingly, he added, this conclusive and unsubstantiated response to such a serious incident was met with dismay in Afghanistan.

“Afghans and Americans have a right to ask on what basis this conclusion was reached,” Alston said. “But all of the documents produced by the Court of Inquiry have remained classified. The record of proceedings has not been released. The 12,000 page report of the Court of Inquiry including recommendations and factual findings has not been released.”

The US government has even disregarded the existing regulation stating that the convening authority should ensure that an executive summary of the report be made public in order to inform government officials, the legislative branch, the media, and the next of kin of the victims of the investigations findings and recommendations.

“Whether or not the decision not to initiate courts-martial was justified, the manner in which the military justice system has operated in this case is entirely inconsistent with principles of public accountability and transparency,” Alston declared.

Regarding killings by private security contractors, he said: “It’s the [US] Department of Justice’s job to prosecute private security contractors who commit unlawful killings, but it has done next to nothing.”

Israel’s treatment of an award-winning young Palestinian journalist is part of a terrible pattern

Two weeks ago, I presented a young Palestinian, Mohammed Omer, with the 2008 Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism. Awarded in memory of the great US war correspondent, the prize goes to journalists who expose establishment propaganda, or “official drivel”, as Gellhorn called it. Mohammed shares the prize of £5,000 with Dahr Jamail. At 24, he is the youngest winner. His citation reads: “Every day, he reports from a war zone, where he is also a prisoner. His homeland, Gaza, is surrounded, starved, attacked, forgotten. He is a profoundly humane witness to one of the great injustices of our time. He is the voice of the voiceless.” The eldest of eight, Mohammed has seen most of his siblings killed or wounded or maimed. An Israeli bulldozer crushed his home while the family were inside, seriously injuring his mother. And yet, says a former Dutch ambassador, Jan Wijenberg, “he is a moderating voice, urging Palestinian youth not to court hatred but seek peace with Israel”.

Getting Mohammed to London to receive his prize was a major diplomatic operation. Israel has perfidious control over Gaza’s borders, and only with a Dutch embassy escort was he allowed out. Last Thursday, on his return journey, he was met at the Allenby Bridge crossing (to Jordan) by a Dutch official, who waited outside the Israeli building, unaware Mohammed had been seized by Shin Bet, Israel’s infamous security organisation. Mohammed was told to turn off his mobile and remove the battery. He asked if he could call his embassy escort and was told forcefully he could not. A man stood over his luggage, picking through his documents. “Where’s the money?” he demanded. Mohammed produced some US dollars. “Where is the English pound you have?”

“I realised,” said Mohammed, “he was after the award stipend for the Martha Gellhorn prize. I told him I didn’t have it with me. ‘You are lying’, he said. I was now surrounded by eight Shin Bet officers, all armed. The man called Avi ordered me to take off my clothes. I had already been through an x-ray machine. I stripped down to my underwear and was told to take off everything. When I refused, Avi put his hand on his gun. I began to cry: ‘Why are you treating me this way? I am a human being.’ He said, ‘This is nothing compared with what you will see now.’ He took his gun out, pressing it to my head and with his full body weight pinning me on my side, he forcibly removed my underwear. He then made me do a concocted sort of dance. Another man, who was laughing, said, ‘Why are you bringing perfumes?’ I replied, ‘They are gifts for the people I love’. He said, ‘Oh, do you have love in your culture?’

“As they ridiculed me, they took delight most in mocking letters I had received from readers in England. I had now been without food and water and the toilet for 12 hours, and having been made to stand, my legs buckled. I vomited and passed out. All I remember is one of them gouging, scraping and clawing with his nails at the tender flesh beneath my eyes. He scooped my head and dug his fingers in near the auditory nerves between my head and eardrum. The pain became sharper as he dug in two fingers at a time. Another man had his combat boot on my neck, pressing into the hard floor. I lay there for over an hour. The room became a menagerie of pain, sound and terror.”

An ambulance was called and told to take Mohammed to a hospital, but only after he had signed a statement indemnifying the Israelis from his suffering in their custody. The Palestinian medic refused, courageously, and said he would contact the Dutch embassy escort. Alarmed, the Israelis let the ambulance go. The Israeli response has been the familiar line that Mohammed was “suspected” of smuggling and “lost his balance” during a “fair” interrogation, Reuters reported yesterday.

Israeli human rights groups have documented the routine torture of Palestinians by Shin Bet agents with “beatings, painful binding, back bending, body stretching and prolonged sleep deprivation”. Amnesty has long reported the widespread use of torture by Israel, whose victims emerge as mere shadows of their former selves. Some never return. Israel is high in an international league table for its murder of journalists, especially Palestinian journalists, who receive barely a fraction of the kind of coverage given to the BBC’s Alan Johnston.

The Dutch government says it is shocked by Mohammed Omer’s treatment. The former ambassador Jan Wijenberg said: “This is by no means an isolated incident, but part of a long-term strategy to demolish Palestinian social, economic and cultural life … I am aware of the possibility that Mohammed Omer might be murdered by Israeli snipers or bomb attack in the near future.”

While Mohammed was receiving his prize in London, the new Israeli ambassador to Britain, Ron Proser, was publicly complaining that many Britons no longer appreciated the uniqueness of Israel’s democracy. Perhaps they do now.

Hey Y’all Watch This! By David Glenn Cox

When did you stop beating your wife? When will you prove yourself innocent? When will you stop lying? When will you produce the murder weapon? All of these statements presuppose guilt and had this prolonged campaign against Iran not mimicked the prolonged campaign against Iraq it would be easy enough excuse the surreal nature of it all. The Alice through the looking glass, world turned upside down flavor to it of the leader who hasn’t invaded anyone cast as the next Hitler by the nation occupying two foreign countries by force of arms.

Being accused of clandestinely developing nuclear weapons by a nation, which clandestinely developed nuclear weapons. Iran is a signature of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and has opened her facilities up to international inspections and despite this, after every round of inspections has been accused by Israel and the United States of hiding a weapons program. Proof of innocence is grounds for suspicion, Israel has never allowed nuclear inspectors in to her facilities Israel has never signed the non-proliferation treaty. The United States attempted to sign an agreement with India to sell her nuclear fuel; India is not a signature either making such a deal a violation of the treaty.

Nuclear non-proliferation by its very definition means not giving selling or otherwise transferring nuclear technology precisely what the Bush administration was trying to do. The US accuses Iran of supporting and supplying terrorists in Iraq but the US invaded Iraq following a campaign of lies and disinformation leaving Iran with a hostile and bellicose power on her border. Repeated charge after charge are made with very little evidence. We have reached a point where the lies and rhetoric doesn’t even have to make sense anymore.

Israel is training/posturing by making training assaults across the Mediterranean imitating a raid on Iran’s nuclear facilities. The world turned inside out, Israel practicing publicly for an unprovoked attack against a sovereign nation accused of developing nuclear weapons by a nation, which clandestinely developed nuclear weapons. If however you untie the knots the attack would come precisely because Iran doesn’t have any nuclear weapons. The purpose then becomes Israel preserving her clandestine nuclear hegemony.

It was mutual assured destruction that helped preserve the peace during the cold war. The Cuban missile crisis made us focus on how precarious the situation could quickly become, how some junior commander’s miscalculation could spell the deaths of millions and lead to a nuclear war. The west did not find out for nearly a generation of four nuclear-armed Soviet submarines in the area that could have turned Kennedy’s quarantine into a vaporous cloud.

The world was run by prudent leaders then, leaders who had survived a world war and had no desire to see another one. What would the world say if Iran were to hold exercises feigning a strike on Israel? While Israeli newspapers are full of war fever about why Israel should Iranian papers are full of calming words of why Israel shouldn’t. Even Iranian promises of self-defense are postulated by the media as threats of aggression. The Israeli newspapers are full of letters to the editor that sound like something out of “Gone with the Wind” Why one Israeli gentleman can whoop a hundred of those Islamic rabble.

Iran threatens, if attacked, to close the straight of Hormuz and were I the President of Iran I would no doubt say the same thing. His nation is being threatened with unprovoked attack for having a program that they deny that they have. When Israel attacked the Iraqi nuclear reactor outside Baghdad they were careful to strike before it had been fueled with nuclear isotopes the same cannot be said in Iran. Prudent leaders would have the Iranian reactor defueled immediately, as an attack on a fueled reactor could create a Chernobyl situation in Iran. A dead zone caused by an unprovoked attack.

The Iranian’s followed suit promising to launch their missiles at Dimona where the Israeli clandestine nuclear program is carried out. Prudent leaders would defuel the Israeli reactor immediately, but we are living in never never land these days, verbosity and macho strut are the marching orders. The commander of the US fifth fleet counters the Iranian promise to close the straights by saying that the US won’t allow it! Who does he think he is? The amazing Spiderman!

There is closing and then there is closing, the Berlin wall effectively closed off East Germans from the west. There are no sentries in New York’s Central Park at two AM, so go on, walk on through; I don’t see anyone stopping you. Iran only needs to make the announcement that the straight is closed and for most of the world the straight is closed. Your car insurance doesn’t cover stock car racing and oil tanker insurance doesn’t cover traversing declared war zones. The US carrier task forces would be helpless against idle threats or God forbid idle threats made good.

One missile launched across the twenty mile wide straight at seven hundred miles and hour pointed at an oil tanker bigger than the Empire State building and you do the math. Only if the Amazing Spiderman were standing on the deck at the time could he stop it. If Israel were to launch an unprovoked attack on Iran and destroy a fueled reactor creating a nuclear dead zone what would Iran have to lose? These potentates postulate and premeditate with powerful plans and pre-justifications of what will happen if they don’t attack. Dare they turn the coin over for a moment and ponder what might happen if they do.

The US economy hangs precariously by a thread, her banks on life support as the price of oil rises and the value of the dollar fades. An Israeli attack would be the deathblow to the American economy and would lead the world’s economies into and inflationary spiral and no man can see the bottom. At what price Israel’s security? Does a perceived paranoid threat give Israel the right to lead the world into a worldwide depression?

How much support will she find in international quarters when an unprovoked attack causes death and misery to millions? Iran will be flattened and radicalized and assuming Israel causes twice as many deaths as she suffers herself will it be worth it? As the whole Middle East will be inflamed the United States will become [enfeebled], no bucks, no Buck Rogers! Even now John McCain works on his snow balls chance campaign following the most unpopular man ever to assume the Presidency. When the smoke cleared from an unprovoked Israeli attack he’d be lucky to hold his seat as Senator.

Not since the Cuban missile crises has the world faced two such frightening futures. A Cuban missile crises on top of an economic crises, the difference being in 1962 the leaders on both sides practiced prudence and sweated blood out of a fear that one or the other of them would make a mistake. This time like drunken rednecks they swing from the flagpole hollering, “Hey y’all watch this!” Playing nuclear chicken with the world, betting all of our futures on one double down bet!
