Another Angle 6 - October - 2006

News others won't tell you


U.S. Government Caught Red-Handed Releasing Staged Al-Qaeda Videos
Revelations that the US government had been in possession of footage released on Sunday depicting alleged Al-Qaeda hijackers and Osama Bin Laden since 2001 and evidence that the footage itself was filmed by security agencies, went unquestioned by the media - who blindly towed the official line that the tape was released by Al-Qaeda. This is smoking gun proof that the U.S. government is staging the release of alleged Al-Qaeda tapes and it demands an immediate Congressional investigation.

Plug pulled on 'Bush-bash' comic
After everything that's been said about Bush at this point, how did Mooney manage to provoke such a harsh response? "I talked about his little drunk daughters, Gin and Juice," he says, referring to Jenna and Barbara Bush. "I talked about his mother, who looks like the man on the oatmeal box." Mooney also did a bit on how the letters in Bush's name can be manipulated to produce the number 666, proving Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez's recent claim that Bush is the devil.

Paraguay hardens U.S. military stance
Paraguay's decision to refuse diplomatic immunity for U.S. troops and not to renew a military cooperation pact sparked debate Tuesday, with analysts calling the developments a blow to U.S. attempts to improve regional ties.

Here's why Chávez is so mad
Before making snap judgments based on Chávez's fiery rhetoric, we should ask the question: Why is Chávez so mad? The answer may be unsavory. Welcoming an unconstitutional coup, supporting radical domestic opposition and ramping up espionage would make any sane president upset.


While All Eyes Are On Foley, Iraq Is Rapidly Deteriorating
So far we have lost 19 soldiers in Iraq this month, and today is only the fourth day of the month. Just today, the Iraqi government had to pull a brigade of around 700 policemen that have possible ties to death squads. Things are going down hill very fast in Iraq, and Michael Ware was on the Situation Room and gave a very dismal view of what is going on.

Bush Dismantles Child Care
The "Child Care Crisis" -- the absence of anyone to care for America's children, elderly and disabled -- has turned into the new millennium's version of the "Problem That Has No Name," It is the 800-pound elephant that sits in Congress, our homes and offices -- gigantic, but ignored.


Article One, Section 10, of the U. S. Constitution says, “No State shall make any Thing but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts.?It has never been repealed.


The Foley scandal is a charade which leads nowhere. Everyone knows that Washington is little better than a Vegas "knocking shop" where wealthy patrons plop down their money and get whatever they want. It is a wonder that we have to go through the whole drill over and over again like reruns of Survivor.

Hell just froze over


Scientists Show Drug Can Counteract Muscular Dystrophy in Mice
Scientists at the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) and other institutions have demonstrated for the first time that a single drug can rebuild damaged muscle in two strains of mice that develop diseases comparable to two human forms of muscular dystrophy.


Black tea soothes away stress
The study, published in the journal Psychopharmacology, found that people who drank tea were able to de-stress more quickly than those who drank a fake tea substitute. Furthermore, the study participants – who drank a black tea concoction four times a day for six weeks – were found to have lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol in their blood after a stressful event, compared with a control group who drank the fake or placebo tea for the same period of time.
