UK Terror War Newswire Archive
David Rovics latest blog on 911 received a lot of comment. Knowing him to be both the most approachable, centred and articulate bloke, I asked if I could send him a list of questions. I asked for questions from a variety of both activists and fans, 911 believers, atheists and agnostics. This isn't a real interview, just an emailed list of disparate questions but his responses are worth sharing.

At around 3 in the afternoon agents of the Federal police aboard a car without registration plates stopped by force comrade Cipriana and forced her into the unit, alleging that there was an arrest warrant against her which was never shown during the arrest, nor when she was transferred to the Rehabilitation Centre for Adults (CERESO).
07-04-2008 00:51The trial of the only remaining youth in the Toronto 18 case commenced last week in a Brampton courtroom. The new details disclosed in the Crown factum filed in the case elicited depressingly new emotional lows in all of the accused and their families. Reminiscent of that fateful day in June, 2006, the media sensationalism started all over again, with the reporting of incomplete evidence and outrageous headlines.
06-04-2008 22:47On Friday, Swiss senator Dick Marty of the Council of Europe once again prodded European governments to come clean about their involvement in candestine operations by the US. As recently as February 22nd, Romania and Poland continued to deny their role in illegal rendition programs, but the EU has refused to accept their blanket denials. On February 24, AP came forth with additional evidence from sources in Romania..

03-04-2008 22:00I would like to blame the Neocons for America’s sordid record of “regime change” around the globe, but I can’t! For Iraq, yes! But, sadly, the U.S. has been in the dirty business of “regime change” for at least 110 years going back to the days that it unlawfully seized Hawaii. Author Stephen Kinzer’s book, “Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change,” tells the story of how 14 countries, many in Central America, came under our hegemony.
01-04-2008 23:52Dahr Jamail, one of the few independent, unembedded U.S. journalists covering Iraq speaks in U.K. and Ireland. As John Pilger writes of Jamail, "While so much reporting from Iraq has remained embedded and wrong, Dahr Jamail's courageous truth-telling from the frontline has been a beacon."

30-03-2008 15:30"The only real power the US holds in this situation is to divide and conquer. That’s a position of extreme weakness."
"Nouri al Maliki, at the behest of his American masters, has thrown the new Army of the Republic of Vietnam against the militias of the most powerful and cohesive popular movement in Iraq, that of Muqtada al Sadr. By all accounts, even with their American advisers, tactical air and intelligence support, this operation appears to be a stupendous failure; the Mehdi Army of Sadr is reported to be routing the Iraqi “government” forces at every turn."
"The same US press, which has parroted the absurd claims of “surge success” for months now, a success that was based on successful ethnic cleansing in Baghdad combined with the Mehdi Army’s ceasefire, will now have to tie itself in rhetorical knots to explain how this success is now adrift in the columns of black smoke rising from one of the two main oil pipelines passing through the port-transit city of Basra, and why rocket-propelled grenades and mortar rounds are splashing onto the Green Zone like a storm."
"Now the US has plunged the knife into the back of even the obedient Kurds, allowing Turkish forces to rampage through Iraqi Kurdistan. The list of allies is shrinking; and the myth of “surge-success” evaporates."
