Newly unearthed Justice Department memo gives justification for torture

"In August 2002, the Justice Department advised the White House that torturing al-Qaida terrorists in captivity abroad 'may be justified,' and that international laws against torture 'may be unconstitutional if applied to interrogations' conducted in President Bush's war on terrorism, according to a newly obtained memo."

If a government employee were to torture a suspect in captivity, 'he would be doing so in order to prevent further attacks on the United States by the al-Qaida terrorist network,' said the memo, from the Justice Department's office of legal counsel, written in response to a CIA request for legal guidance. It added that arguments centering on 'necessity and self-defense could provide justifications that would eliminate any criminal liability' later."
-------

So how long before they determine that the Constitutional prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment doesn't apply to interrogations?

"THE US Attorney-General today declined to provide Congress with copies of a Justice Department memo that allegedly advised the White House that torture during interrogations in the war against terrorism could be justified."

"The Washington Post reported today that an August 2002 memo sent by the Justice Department's office of legal council in response to a Central Intelligence Agency request for legal guidance said international laws against torture "may be unconstitutional if applied to interrogations" conducted in the war on terrorism."

Trinidad: 'Give every man a gun'

"OPPOSITION Leader Basdeo Panday has called for every man in the country to have a gun to protect his rights, liberty and property since the Government has failed to do so."

"Speaking at the St Helena Hindu School at the UNC's Monday evening people's forum, Panday told the hundreds gathered that the PNM government had failed in its first and basic function of any government to protect the rights, liberty and property of its citizens."

"Panday said: 'If Manning and PNM cannot perform the first and basic function then they must pull up their pants and go home.'"

"Using the political theories of philosophers such as Thomas Hobbes, Jean Jacques Rousseau and John Locke to make his point, Panday said in a civilised society man had handed over the powers of self-defence to the government and so there was a social contract between the people and the State."
-------

He is almost correct. Self-defense is a power that the people delegate to governments, but individuals still retain that right.
 

Blown Away: American Women and Guns by Caitlin Kelly

"CAITLIN KELLY asks me if I have ever fired a gun. I regretfully answer 'no.' 'Regretfully' because of the rage I feel at being a statistic, among the three out of four women in this country who have been or will be victimized during their lifetime. But in many places, including New York City, we cannot legally arm ourselves for protection."

"In Blown Away, Kelly describes herself and the estimated 17 million American women who carry guns as 'transgressive and frightening.' A journalist and a four-time crime victim, Kelly found herself excited by the sense of power and freedom she experienced during a defensive weapons class at the Smith & Wesson Academy in Springfield, MA. She was also put at ease by the emphasis on safety measures and responsible care of firearms—points that instructors and gun owners make over and over in her book."

"Kelly's experience triggered a desire to explore how American women, usually portrayed as the vanguard of the antigun movement in this country, really feel. ..." ...

... "I can tell you firsthand that the power of the gun lobby is more perception than reality. After all, there are 80 million gun owners in America; only 4 million are NRA members. And many of these join only to get the gun magazines or insurance. They believe in the Second Amendment but understand that an AK-47 isn't a hunting rifle."

"Even more interesting is the fact that the NRA doesn't speak for even its most diehard members. NRA leaders such as Wayne LaPierre and Kayne Robinson are pragmatists. Others, such as NRA board member and former Georgia congressman Bob Barr, are pure right-wing partisans who care more about electing Republicans than protecting gun rights."

"The tension between pragmatic NRA leaders and the minuscule number of diehard right-wing board members played itself out in the debate over the immunity bill. According to insiders, LaPierre was willing to accept a renewed assault weapons ban in exchange for passage of gun industry immunity. But when the far-right factions of the NRA found out, Wayne's world came crashing down. The NRA was forced to issue a statement denying any deal and ultimately had to oppose final passage of the immunity bill with the assault weapons ban and gun show amendments attached." ...

"Mick 'the Don' Gatto is in prison charged with murdering Andrew 'Benji' Veniamin in a pizza restaurant three months ago, a crime Gatto claims he committed in self defence."

"The call comes on the day one of Victoria's biggest corruption cases will officially be withdrawn from court because of the murder of its key witness last month." ...

"The National Rifle Association announced today that it would open up a field office in downtown Baghdad, one of four Iraq offices it hopes to establish before years end. Other offices are slated for Fajulla, Najif, Basra and Tirkrit (Saddam’s former hometown and stronghold)." ...

"In a rare departure from its longstanding support for President Bush the NRA claims that it is wrong for the U.S. Army to be disarming militias in Iraq. Iraqi’s have the right to 'keep and bear arms', just like Americans. 'If President Bush continues to disarm Iraqi citizens and innocent insurgents we may not endorse him in the 2004 campaign. We don’t think it’s fair that President Bush has confiscated Saddam Hussein’s personal pistol and gets to keep it as a souvenir, while he denies ordinary Iraqis the right to keep guns'." ...

"A Pennsylvania company is recalling some 3,200 gun holsters because the strap can catch the trigger and cause the weapon to fire accidentally."

"Eight incidents of accidental firing have been reported, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday."

"The Fobus USA Holster Division of First Samco Inc., of Southampton, Pa., is recalling its Fobus GLT holsters, designed for Series 17 and Series 19 Glock handguns fitted with a laser-sight light. There have been eight reports of guns discharging as they were inserted into the holster. One person sustained a finger injury."

"The recall, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, involves about 3,200 units with leather or plastic retention straps less than an inch wide. The holsters are inscribed with 'GL 2..EMZ,' 'FOBUS' and 'Made in Israel.' They were sold at gun accessory retailers nationwide and on the Fobus Web site between March 2002 and March 2003 for about $40 to $45." ...

... "Though Reagan was not political in his early Hollywood days, the growing communist influence in the movie industry captured his interest. During a speech to a group in Los Angeles, he spoke of the growing threat of fascism. After the speech, a pastor approached him, saying that communism was an equal danger and needed to be addressed."

"Reagan did address the issue, and his criticisms of communism made him many enemies."

"'To Reagan few passages of his life had been as grueling as those years when he faced physical intimidation, including a threat that he would be splashed with acid, ruining the big screen face he depended upon for income,' the author recalled. 'He began packing a .32 Smith and Wesson pistol, holstering the gun on every morning for months and wearing it until he stepped into bed at night.'" ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege. [Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)]
