Britain is up to its neck in US dirty wars and death squads
December 4, 2013 -You might have thought the war on terror was finally being wound down, 12 years after the US launched it with such disastrous results. President Obama certainly gave that impression earlier this year when he declared that "this war, like all wars, must end". In fact, the Nobel peace prize winner was merely redefining it. There would be no more "boundless global war on terror", he promised. By which he meant land wars and occupations are out for now, even if the US is still negotiating for troops to remain in Afghanistan after the end of next year. But the war on terror is mutating, growing and spreading. Drone attacks, which have escalated under Obama from Pakistan to north Africa, are central to this new phase. And as Dirty Wars – the powerful new film by the American journalist Jeremy Scahill – makes clear, so are killings on the ground by covert US special forces, proxy warlords and mercenaries in multiple countries...

Arafat widow convinced death not natural
December 4, 2013 -- The widow of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat said on Wednesday she was still convinced he was poisoned, after French experts ruled out the theory that he had been assassinated. "I'm still completely convinced that the martyr Arafat did not die a natural death, and I will keep trying to get to the truth," Suha Arafat told AFP. "I'm shocked by (the results of) the French medical report, which I only received four pages of to look at," she said...
"The Swiss report was a detailed, 107-page, professional report talking in detail about the presence of polonium on Arafat's clothes," Suha said. "How the French haven't found anything is completely illogical," she added...

Omar Khadr Being Denied Medical Treatment, Doctor Says
December 3, 2013 -Omar Khadr's treatment in a Canadian prison may be more harsh than at Guantanamo Bay, says a former U.S. military psychiatrist who interviewed Khadr for his defence team and has since become an independent advocate for him. Dr. Stephen Xenakis, interviewed for White Coat, Black Art by host Dr. Brian Goldman, says that Khadr, 27, needs orthopedic surgery for previous injuries, and he's not getting it. "I'm very dismayed … The physicians are obligated, as we're always obligated, to provide the best care that we can, and this man needs that treatment."..

White House prepared to allow limited Iran nuclear enrichment
by CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta
December 3, 2013 - The Obama administration is prepared to allow Iran to engage in a "limited enrichment program" if Tehran holds up its end of an international agreement to curtail its nuclear capabilities under stringent global oversight, the White House confirmed Tuesday. "We are prepared to negotiate a strictly limited enrichment program," Obama administration national security spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said in a statement... The White House statement was in large part a reaction to questions raised about an international agreement brokered last month with Iran over its nuclear program. "We have accepted Iranian uranium enrichment," retired Gen. Michael Hayden, a former CIA director, told Fox News Sunday when asked about the deal reached between Iran and the United States, Britain, China, Russia, France and Germany....

Pandora and the Drones
By Conn Hallinan
December 3, 2013- In November 2001, when the CIA assassinated al-Qaeda commander Mohammed Atef with a killer drone in Kandahar, Afghanistan, the U.S. held a virtual monopoly on the technology of lethal robots. Today, more than 70 countries in the world deploy drones, 16 of them the deadly variety, and many of those drones target rural people living on the margins of the modern world.Armed drones have been hailed as a technological breakthrough in the fight against terrorists who, in the words of President Obama, "take refuge in remote tribal regions…hide in caves and walled compounds…train in empty deserts and rugged mountains." But much of the butcher’s bill for the drones has fallen on people who live in those deserts and mountains, many of whom are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time or get swept into a definition of "terrorist" so broad it that embraces virtually all adult males...
