Bush depriving money from American POWs
San Francisco Chronicle | Submitted by: Juan Motaim
"The Bush administration is seeking to block a group of American troops who were tortured in Iraqi prisons during the Persian Gulf War in 1991 from collecting any of the hundreds of millions of dollars in frozen Iraqi assets that they won last summer in a federal court ruling against the government of Saddam Hussein... If the administration is successful, the former prisoners would be deprived both of the money they won and, they say, of the validation of a judge's ruling that documented their accounts of torture by the Iraqis - including beatings, burnings, starvation, mock executions and repeated threats of castration and dismemberment."

Ex-CIA officer upset over Bush lies
Independent | Submitted by: wingnut
"'The intelligence process is a bit like virginity,' says Ray McGovern, who worked as a CIA analyst for 27 years. 'Once you prostitute it, it's never the same. Your credibility never recovers. Watching what has happened with Iraq over the past several months has been like watching your daughter being raped.' Such is an indication of the extraordinary depth of feeling within the US intelligence community as the Bush administration's basis for the war in Iraq - the weapons of mass destruction, the dark hint of links between Saddam Hussein and al-Qa'ida - has been shown to have been built on air. Mr McGovern worked near the very top of his profession, giving direct advice to Henry Kissinger during the Nixon era and preparing the President's daily security brief for Ronald Reagan."

Dr. allegedly endangers patients for drug study
Boston Globe | Submitted by: dianalily
"A doctor at a state mental health facility changed patients' medications last year so that they would be eligible for a study of a new psychiatric drug, violating basic guidelines for research on human subjects... patients' medications were switched without informed consent and without a clear medical need, the changes were made more than two months before the human-studies review boards approved the research protocol, and the patients involved were clearly not eligible under the criteria for the study, which specified that subjects be outpatients. One of the four patients whose medication was switched, a man who had been stable for 10 years on the drug Clozaril, became so ill and acutely psychotic that he spent months in and out of hospital wards."

US about to give up on Afghanistan again
Asia Times | Submitted by: agentX
"With Afghanistan daily slipping into more anarchy and chaos, United States authorities, aware that they are unlikely to ever bring stability to the country by military means, continue to explore political avenues that ultimately could pave the way for them to withdraw from the country... al-Qaeda's network in Afghanistan has effectively been broken, and it poses no threat to the US in that country. Thus, a growing argument runs, since there is no threat, should the US really care who rules the wasteland that is Afghanistan, be it the Taliban or the Northern Alliance or a combination thereof?"

Deficient baby formula allegedly killing kosher infants
New York Post | Submitted by: optional
"Israeli health officials are investigating whether a baby formula has caused three infants to die and 17 others to be hospitalized with a brain illness - sparking panic in New York's Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods... Jewish ambulance volunteers broke from their Sabbath rest to warn mothers of the possible danger. They rode around Williamsburg, Borough Park, Flatbush, Crown Heights and other city areas, telling residents over loudspeakers to stop using the product... Health officials yesterday announced that tests showed thiamin, or Vitamin B1, was missing from Remedia - even though it's listed as an ingredient."

Catholic Church looking for a good PR agency
Boston Globe | Submitted by: Juan Motaim
"The president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops... acknowledged the church's moral authority has been damaged by revelations that hundreds of priests sexually abused minors during the last five decades. But, he said, the church will continue to speak out on moral issues as the presidential campaign intensifies. Gregory said the bishops' conference has discussed, but has not yet decided whether to pursue, launching a public relations campaign to call attention to the ongoing 'good works' of the church as the bishops prepare for the February release of a church-commissioned quantitative study of clergy sexual abuse that Gregory has predicted will be 'startling.'"

Pit bull rescues boy from dog attack
Miami Herald | Submitted by: Lucid346
"Anthony Romaro got the scare of his life Wednesday night when two Akita dogs, each weighing about 100 pounds, attacked him near his best friend's home in Coral Springs...

Missy, witnesses say, pulled the two Akitas - Cella and Baci - off Anthony after several struggles during a 15-minute span... The dogs ripped much of Anthony's left ear and bit his skull before Missy fought them off of him."

Illegal workers suing Wal-Mart
Wire Services | Submitted by: Juan Motaim
"Nine illegal immigrants who worked as janitors at Wal-Mart until they were arrested during federal raids last month have sued the company, accusing it of discrimination. The nine say they were paid lower wages and offered fewer benefit because they are Mexicans, and they accuse Wal-Mart and its cleaning contractors of failing to pay for overtime, withhold taxes or make required workers' compensation contributions... The plaintiffs, who now face deportation, were among 250 people arrested in an Oct. 23 federal immigration crackdown at 60 Wal-Mart stores in 21 states."

Farmer shares lesson after amputating own fingers
Toronto Star | Submitted by: Eigenstatic
"In a world of instant communication, it seemed impossible a man could be trapped for 66 hours just metres from a cellular telephone, within sight of his house and a road, forced to make the choice to sacrifice his hand to save his life... Osiowy is urging farmers to invest in global positioning systems to monitor their whereabouts in the fields... 'It just seems like a friggin' no-brainer that people who work alone should be protected,' said Osiowy, a divorced father and grandfather who lives alone, farming about 1,500 acres of specialty crops."

Deep Purple CDs found in shuttle wreckage
AZ Central | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Deep Purple are considering donating some very special memorabilia to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: two of their CDs that were on the space shuttle Columbia.

The discs were found in the debris, and Chawla's husband gave them back to the band during their Mexico City concert in September."
