Two US pilots killed in helicopter crash in west Baghdad, two soldiers killed in separate attacks in Iraq

BAGHDAD – Four US servicemen were killed in Iraq Monday, the US military announced Tuesday.
Two US pilots were killed when their military helicopter crashed in west Baghdad Monday evening, the military said Tuesday.
"There was no hostile fire involved," it said, giving no further details.
A US soldier also died when his patrol came under rocket-propelled grenade attack in Baghdad.
And another soldier, serving with the 2nd Marine Division, died of wounds received from small arms in Khalidiyah, in western Iraq.
This brings the US military death toll since the start of the war to at least 2,166, according to an AFP count based on Pentagon figures.

H.L.s take
Too bad Congress doesn't care about our soldiers getting killed in Iraq, even after all that has come out. Oh yeah thats right they are for themselves and against us.
Bush Arrogantly
Ignores FOIA Demand

Excerpt: * The White House and DOD have failed to turn over WMD evidence after 500,000 Americans signed a petition delivered to Bush six months ago. He also has failed to answer questions or turn over documents requested by 52 Congressmen after the Downing Street Memo also surfaced in May. Many observers feel Bush thinks he's above the law, acting like Hitler in Nazi Germany.

H.L.s take
What now they think that Bush is going to suddenly start playing by the rules. Hey Democrats, get a majority in the house and senate, and then you can start trying to do something about Bush, but first you have to fix the Voting scams the Republicans are perpetrating. Too bad they are unwilling to do that, so just shut up OK?

New Orleans Police Shoot, Kill Man on Tape

When he reviewed his videotape, Percy said, he saw a small knife in the man's hand. The tape, broadcast nationally, appears to show about a dozen officers taking part in the confrontation.
Trey Brokaw, a patron at a nearby bar, said he saw the victim with a knife in his hand shortly before the shooting. "I didn't see anyone near him," Brokaw said. "It didn't seem like anyone was going to get hurt to me."

H.L.s take
Once again a person who was no danger to anyone but himself is gunned down in cold blood by the cops. The message clearly is If you do anything except obey a cops every order down the T then you will be eliminated. When was the last time a cop was found negligible in a shooting. It just doesn't happen.

Are You Being Tracked?

It looks fairly innocuous, a metal-and-plastic square with wires coiled up like an angular snail, a lot like the anti-theft tag you'd find if you pried apart a book you'd just bought at a chain store. But it's a Radio Frequency Identification tag, RFID for short, and each one has a tiny antenna that can broadcast information about the product, or person, to which it is attached.

US embassy close to admitting Syria rendition flight

Excerpt: The US embassy in London was forced to issue a correction yesterday to an interview given by the ambassador, Robert Tuttle, in which he claimed America would not fly suspected terrorists to Syria, which has one of the worst torture records in the Middle East. A statement acknowledged media reports of a suspect taken from the US to Syria.

Capitol Hill Blue
Are we that good? Damn right we are

“Why is it,” the emailer who signed their name only as “skeptical” wanted to know, “that your story about President Bush’s remarks about the Constitution has not been reported by any other news media? That convinces me that it must be untrue. Why is it that you have sources that no one else seems to have? Are you that good?”

Global News Matrix
NSA just one of many federal agencies spying on Americans

Spying on Americans by the super-secret National Security Agency is not only more widespread than President George W. Bush admits but is part of a concentrated, government-wide effort to gather and catalog information on U.S. citizens, sources close to the administration say.
Besides the NSA, the Pentagon, Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security and dozens of private contractors are spying on millions of Americans 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Washington Post
Bloggers, Money Now Weapons in Information War

BAGHDAD -- Retired soldier Bill Roggio was a computer technician living in New Jersey less than two months ago when a Marine officer half a world away made him an offer he couldn't refuse.

Frustrated by the coverage they were receiving from the news media, the Marines invited Roggio, 35, who writes a popular Web log about the military called "The Fourth Rail" ( ), to come cover the war from the front lines.
He raised more than $30,000 from his online readers to pay for airfare, technical equipment and body armor. A few weeks later, he was posting dispatches from a remote outpost in western Anbar province, a hotbed of Iraq's insurgency.
