Subject: Abu Ghraib/film 10.06 6pm

October 6, 2008 - Film Screening:  "Standard Operating Procedure" (2008)
documenting torture and conditions at the US Forces base Abu Ghraib.
Time: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM.  Cost: Free and open to the public.

Directed by Errol Morris.  Is it possible for a photograph to change the
world? Photographs taken by soldiers in Abu Ghraib prison changed the war
in Iraq and changed Americas image of itself. Yet, a central mystery
remains. Did the notorious Abu Ghraib photographs constitute evidence of
systematic abuse by the American military, or were they documenting the
aberrant behavior of a few bad apples? We set out to examine the context
of these photographs. Why were they taken? What was happening outside the
frame? We talked directly to the soldiers who took the photographs and who
were in the photographs. Who are these people? What were they thinking?

Over two years of investigation, we amassed a million and a half words of
interview transcript, thousands of pages of unredacted reports, and
hundreds of photographs. The story of Abu Ghraib is still shrouded in
moral ambiguity, but it is clear what happened there. The Abu Ghraib
photographs serve as both an expose and a coverup. An expose, because the
photographs offer us a glimpse of the horror of Abu Ghraib; and a coverup
because they convinced journalists and readers they had seen everything,
that there was no need to look further.

In recent news reports, we have learned about the destruction of the Abu
Zubaydah interrogation tapes. A coverup. It has been front page news. But
the coverup at Abu Ghraib involved thousands of prisoners and hundreds of
soldiers. We are still learning about the extent of it. Many journalists
have asked about the smoking gun of Abu Ghraib. It is the wrong question.
As Philip Gourevitch has commented, Abu Ghraib is the smoking gun. The
underlying question that we still have not resolved, four years after the
scandal: how could American values become so compromised that Abu Ghraib
and the subsequent coverup could happen?

MAGERS AND QUINN PRESS RELEASE : For Immediate Distribution : Rinku Sen
and Fekkak Mamdouh discuss their book The Accidental American: Immigration
and Citizenship in the Age of Globalization, 7:30pm Tuesday October 7 at
Magers & Quinn Booksellers.

The Accidental American advocates a bold new approach to immigration: a
free international flow of labor to match globalization's free flow of
capital. After all, corporations are encouraged to move anywhere in the
world they can maximize their earnings. People shouldn't have to risk
exploitation, abuse, even imprisonment when they try to do the same.

Activist, journalist, and immigration expert Rinku Sen and organizer
Fekkak Mamdouh examine the consequences of this injustice through
Mamdouh's own story. Born in Morocco, he was a waiter and union leader at
Windows on the World, a restaurant in the World Trade Center, on September
11th. In the aftermath, facing a rising tide of anti-immigrant bias,
Mamdouh and others formed the Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York
to help their colleagues fight for decent jobs and fair treatment.

The experiences of Mamdouh and his coworkers vividly demonstrate the human
cost of our flawed immigration policies. Since September 11th, immigrants
have increasingly been treated as presumptive criminals. As a counterpoint
to these regressive, fundamentally un-American practices, Sen forcefully
advocates more humane policies, coupled with proposals for reforming
globalization so that all countries can more equitably benefit from a
mobile labor force.

Rinku Sen, the Publisher of ColorLines
<http://www.colorlines.com/>magazine and soon-to-be Executive Director of
the Applied Research Center <http://www.arc.org/> (ARC), has a rich
history of organizing, writing and lecturing on issues of race, gender and
activism. She has written extensively about immigration, community
organizing and women's lives for a wide variety of publications including
Third Force, AlterNet, tompaine.com, Race, Poverty & the Environment,
Amerasia Journal and Colorlines. Her latest book, Stir It Up: Lessons in
Community Organizing, a guide for community organizations of all
orientations was a finalist for the 2004 Nautilus Book Award in the social
change category.

Fekkak Mamdouh is a 45-year-old Moroccan who was headwaiter and beloved
union leader at Windows on the World, a restaurant in the World Trade
Towers.  Mamdouh grew up poor in Morrocco, and then emigrated to Saudi
Arabia as a young adult, where he worked for the Saudi Royal Family. He
first came to the United States as a paid companion to a Saudi prince,
then overstayed his visa and remained here permanently, changing his
status from illegal to legal through marriage. Mamdouh was a career waiter
until September 11th transformed him into an accidental organizer.

The Rebellion That Failed
By DAVE LINDORFF
CounterPunch
October 3 - 5, 2008

The grassroots rebellion that led to the House's rejection of the Bush
Administration's Wall Street bailout bill on Monday flamed out on Friday,
overwhelmed by a massive lobbying campaign by Wall Street and by a
propaganda push in the corporate media in favor of passage.

The House, which had voted 228 to 205 against a bailout at the beginning
of the week, voted 283-171 in favor of an even more expensive plan only
four days later, after the Senate passed a bill containing over $100
billion in tax breaks (mostly for the wealthy), and after House leaders
added a bunch of those infamous "earmarks" to buy the votes of reluctant
House members.

Interestingly, one of the things that was used to frighten members of
Congress into passing this unprecedented bill was a plunging stock market,
which plunged into record low territory for the year on Monday and
Thursday. Yet after rising modestly during the morning, reportedly on
"anticipation" that Congress would pass a bailout, once the vote was in,
the equities markets all started heading south. Clearly investors weren't
particularly optimistic that throwing almost $1 trillion in borrowed money
from taxpayers at banks and investment houses would do much for the
nation's struggling "real" economy.

One reason for investor pessimism is no doubt news that car sales and
housing prices in September slumped to record lows, and that the September
jump in unemployment was the highest since the 9/11 crisis in 2001.
Another was probably the inclusion of a provision in the bill as passed by
both House and Senate that allows the Treasury to buy bad debt not just
from US banks, but from foreign banks as well.  As several critics of the
plan have observed (but as the corporate media have failed to report, to
their undying shame), this means that American tax dollars will be flowing
out of the country to shore up the balance sheets of foreign institutions,
in the name of keeping overseas investors in the market for US treasury
securities.

There may have been no other option for a country that is having its
economy run into the ground by a voracious war machine that absorbs close
to $1 trillion a year in revenues, and by economic policies that have,
particularly over the last eight years, encouraged the wholesale flight
abroad of the nation's manufacturing base.

Numerous critics of this record giveaway to Wall Street note that the
whole scheme is unlikely to do anything to shore up the economy, which
seems headed into a long and deep recession.  It is not even likely to do
anything much to ease the frozen credit markets, since there are no
constraints to prevent the banks that collect all the money from investing
it in more speculative areas that offer the lure of higher returns than
simply lending to corporate America or to homeowners. There's nothing
either in the measure to prevent the recipients of the money from
investing or lending the money abroad. And given that lack of constraints,
why wouldn't they? If the US economy is going into the dumps, why lend
money here at relatively low rates of return, when it can be lent more
profitably and at higher rates in growing economies like China, Brazil or
Russia?

Democrats in the House, and Barack Obama, the Democratic candidate for
president, were rolled by Wall Street and by Treasury Secretary Hank
Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, who, along with
President Bush, sketched out scare stories of a 1930s-like Depression if
taxpayers' money wasn't handed over in short order. "No time for
hearings," they cried. "This has to be done immediately or America is
doomed".

Where had we heard that kind of nonsense before?  Oh yeah, in October
2001, when Congress was similarly rolled into passing first a bill
launching an unending and borderless "War" on Terror and into passing a
Constitution-wrecking USA PATRIOT Act. And then again in 2002 when
Congress was again rolled, this time into authorizing a war against Iraq,
which was presented as not a war authorization, but just a "diplomatic
hand-strengthening" measure designed to get Iraq to stop developing
alleged weapons of mass destruction (which, it should have been obvious at
the time, he wasn't actually developing).

No matter. So weakened, leaderless and ideologically rudderless is the
Democratic Party under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid that it let itself be rolled again. So anxious is
candidate Obama to appear in step with the imagined centrist zeitgeist
that he actually joined Republican opponent John McCain in helping to pass
this ripoff legislative boondoggle, thus assuring that if he manages to
win the White House, he will inherit a bankrupt government incapable of
doing anything significant of a progressive nature.

Americans who were scared by the media and the Administration into fearing
that their retirement savings were going into the toilet unless the
bailout passed can watch their already deflated portfolios languish there,
now that it has passed.

The lesson is clear. No grassroots rebellion that focuses on Congress as
its battleground, or that counts Republican or Democratic elected
officials as its troops, will go anywhere.  The government party will hew
to the people with the money.

A wiser course of action would be the wholesale rejection this Election
Day of all incumbents who voted for the bailout bill in both House and
Senate. Do that once, and watch how much better Congress responds to
citizen pressure the next time around.

The New American Century: Cut Short by 92 Years
by Mike Whitney
October 4th, 2008
Dissident Voice

The era of Superpower America is coming to an end. The financial crisis
was the last straw. Whatever good faith was left after the invasion of
Iraq and the shrugging off of international treaties, is now gone. The
United States has polluted the global economic system with worthless
mortgage-backed securities and, by doing so, has pushed 6 billion people
closer to a long and painful recession. That's not something that's easy
to forgive.

The anger at the US seems to be surfacing everywhere at once. It was
particularly noticeable at the recent opening of the UN General Assembly.
Typically, this is a tedious event full of empty political blabbering and
pretentious ceremonies. But not this time. With the world sliding towards
a US-created recession; foreign leaders have started lashing out at the
United States more vehemently. The speeches have been blunt and
acrimonious; no one is "pulling their punches" any more. Venezuela's Hugo
Chavez summed up the mood of the meetings like this:

"I think that, sooner rather than later, this empire will fall - to the
benefit of the whole world, enabling a balance in the world to be created:
polycentric and multi-polar. That will guarantee peace in the world. To
the creation of this multi-polar world we are making our small
contribution".

What Chavez objects to is Bush's "unipolar" model of global governance
whereby all the world's crucial decisions - on everything from global
warming to nuclear proliferation - are made by Washington. No one likes
being told what to do, just as no one likes the US constantly meddling in
their affairs. That's why none of the UN attendees seemed particularly
bothered by the fact that the US financial markets are in freefall. It's
called schadenfreude, taking pleasure in someone else's misfortune, and it
was on full display at the United Nations last week.

Many of the dignitaries seem to believe that America's sudden economic
downturn presents an opportunity for change. And that's what everyone
wants; real change. No one wants another 8 years like the last. That's why
the central theme in Chavez's speech was repeated over and over again by
other leaders. They reject the present system and want a bigger role in
shaping the future.

That doesn't mean that the world hates America. It just means that
everyone wants a breather from the torture, the abductions, the bombing of
civilians, and now, the financial contagion that has spread throughout the
global system. The US's lack of regulation and monetary policies have
driven up inflation, triggered food riots, and sent oil prices
skyrocketing. Enough is enough. The United States is like the dinner guest
who doesn't know when it's time to go home. Perhaps, a touch of recession
will help to rebalance Washington's approach and make its leaders more
responsive to the needs of the rest of the world.

Journalist John Gray summed it up like this in his article in The
Observer, "A Shattering Moment in America's fall from Power":

The control of events is no longer in American hands. Having created the
conditions that produced history's biggest bubble, America's political
leaders appear unable to grasp the magnitude of the dangers the country
now faces. Mired in their rancorous culture wars and squabbling among
themselves, they seem oblivious to the fact that American global
leadership is fast ebbing away. A new world is coming into being almost
unnoticed, where America is only one of several great powers, facing an
uncertain future it can no longer shape.

The US is about to join the family of nations and learn how to get along
with its neighbors whether it wants to or not. There's simply no other
choice; the dollar is falling, the deficits are soaring, and the financial
markets are in a shambles. America will either learn to cooperate or
become isolated in a world that is rapidly integrating. It's "get along or
go it alone"; a message that Washington needs to learn quickly so it can
adapt to the new power-paradigm.

Yes; plenty of money will still flow into covert operations and
CIA-sponsored dirty tricks just to keep alive the hope that Superpowerdom
will be restored. That is to be expected. The well-heeled rogues in the
British royal family still dream of rebuilding the Empire, too. But
realists know that it's just a harmless fantasy. Nothing will come of it.
Empires have a short shelf-life and they're impossible to stitch-back
together. They usually end on a corpse strewn battlefield or in a towering
financial bonfire which leaves nothing behind but a pile of ashes and
shards of broken glass. We can only hope that the yawning economic chasm
ahead of us all, will involve less hardship than we anticipate. But when a
nation sows dragon's teeth, it shouldn't expect a harvest of sweet plums.

Journalist Steve Watson reports on Infowars:

A Council on Foreign Relations member and former policy planner under
prominent Bilderberger Henry Kissinger has penned a piece in the Financial
Times of London calling for a "new global monetary authority" that would
have the power to monitor all national financial authorities and all large
global financial companies.

Even if the US's massive financial rescue operation succeeds, it should be
followed by something even more far-reaching - the establishment of a
Global Monetary Authority to oversee markets that have become borderless -
writes Jeffrey Garten also a former managing director of Lehman Brothers.

The dream of "one world" government does not die easily, but it is dead
all the same. The center of the present global financial system is the
Federal Reserve. Its offspring includes the Council on Foreign Relations,
the IMF, The World Bank, the G-7 banking cartel and thousands of predatory
NGOs which have expanded the grip of the Washington banking cabal and the
dollarized system across the planet. But neoliberalism is collapsing and
what we are seeing now is the erratic spasms of a terminal heart patient
entering the final stages of cardiac arrest. There is no drug or medical
procedure that will restore the victim to good health.

No one is looking to the US or its "supply side" hirelings to chart a
course for their country's economic future. Those days are over. The US
will have to pull itself from the rubble and start over without the
massive infusions of low interest capital from China, Japan and the Gulf
States. The money spigots have been turned off. It's thin gruel and hard
times ahead. That's the price one pays for swindling the world with
worthless mortgage-backed snake oil and other "illiquid" garbage.

Russian President Vladimir Putin summed up recent events in the financial
markets like this:

Everything that is happening in the economic and financial sphere has
started in the United States. This is a real crisis that all of us are
facing, and what is really sad is that we see an inability to take
appropriate decisions. This is no longer irresponsibility on the part of
some individuals, but irresponsibility of the whole system, which as you
know had pretensions to (global) leadership.

Back at the United Nations, Germany's Finance Minister Peer Steinbuck
echoed similar sentiments when he said:

The United States is solely to be blamed for the financial crisis. They
are the cause for the crisis and it is not Europe and it is not the
Federal Republic of Germany. The Anglo-Saxon drive for double-digit
profits and massive bonuses for bankers and company executives that were
responsible for the financial crisis.

He added,"The long term consequences of the crisis are not clear - but one
thing seems likely to me; the USA will lose its superpower status in the
global financial system. The world financial system is becoming
multipolar".

Steinbuck was merely reiterating the feelings of Chancellor Angela Merkel
who used more diplomatic language in her critique:

The current crisis shows us you can do some things on the national level,
but the overwhelming majority must be agreed to on the international
level. We must push for clearer regulations so that a crisis like the
current one cannot be repeated.

Merkel knows that Europe was blindsided by America's deregulated system
which allows fraudsters and scam-artists to rule the roost. Even now - in
the middle of the biggest financial scandal in history - not one CEO or
CFO from a major investment bank has been indicted or dragged off to
prison. US markets are a lawless "free for all" where no one is held
accountable no matter how large the crime or how many people are hurt. But
there's a price to be paid for fleecing investors, and the US will pay
that price. Already, the purchase of US Treasurys has slowed to a crawl.
In the coming months, America's life-support system will be disconnected
altogether and the oxygen tent removed. Kissinger's protege is not worried
about that; but working class Americans should be. There's a train wreck
just ahead and many people will suffer needlessly.

This is how Spiegel Online puts it:

The banking crisis is upending American dominance of the financial markets
and world politics. The industrialized countries are sliding into
recession, the era of turbo-capitalism is coming to an end and US military
might is ebbing.. This is no longer the muscular and arrogant United
States the world knows, the superpower that sets the rules for everyone
else and that considers its way of thinking and doing business to be the
only road to success.

A new America is on display, a country that no longer trusts its old
values and its elites even less: the politicians, who failed to see the
problems on the horizon, and the economic leaders, who tried to sell a
fictitious world of prosperity to Americans.. Also on display is the end
of arrogance. The Americans are now paying the price for their pride.1

Both presidential candidates have vowed to continue the unilateralist Bush
Doctrine. Obama is just as eager as McCain to violate sovereign borders,
invade countries that pose no imminent national security threat to the US,
and carry out the many flagrant violations of international law as long as
they serve the interests of western mandarins. But it's not up to the
politicians anymore. Change is coming; the unipolar moment has passed. As
the financial crisis deepens, America's ability to wage war will steadily
erode as capital and resources dry up. Its only a matter of time before
the war machine sputters to a halt and the troops return home. When the
killing stops, a truly new world order will begin.
