Russia News outs Fox News & Bill O'Reilly
O'Reilly continues to insist Bill Ayers interview was conducted by a non-english speaking interviewer when it is obvious she is speaking English
Fox News lies and millions of Americans believe these lies and form their opinions on these lies. Americans vote for or against something based upon Roger Ailes & Rupert Murdochs propaganda Machine.

Out-FOXed: Bill O'Reilly bites the RT bullet

First a word from Rachel Maddow On the Katrina Bridge Murders:
Police after Katrina hurricane shot and killed two unarmed civilians wounding five others.
Yes Virginia there are corrupt and murderous police officers
Rachel Maddow - Katrina Bridge Shootings- July 13, 2010

The cops in Toronto , Canada have become CANADIAN HEROES for beating up and arresting peaceful protesters & violating their basic rights. The Toronto Police allowed a mob of violent protesters to go on a rampage to justify the Billion dollar price tag for G20.

And Americans applaud & celebrates the heroism of Louisanna Cops who shoot at unarmed citizens :wounding 5 and killing 2.

Katrina police could face the death penalty AP Via Independent UK July 14, 2010

Four police officers could face the death penalty after being accused of gunning down two unarmed people in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

The city's corruption-plagued police department already faces several US federal investigations.

The four officers were charged along with two others in a 27-count indictment yesterday.

Five former New Orleans police officers have already pleaded guilty to helping cover up the shootings on the Danziger Bridge that left two men dead and four wounded just days after the August 2005 hurricane.

In one instance, a mentally disabled man was shot in the back and stamped on before he died.

Prosecutors say officers fabricated witness statements, falsified reports and planted a gun in an attempt to make it appear the shootings were justified.

and other examples of US disdain for Justice. Khadr is a Canadian citizen who was arrested in Afghanistan eight years ago - at the time he was 15 and therefore according to International Agreements and Laws was a Child soldiers and therefore not responsible for his actions. The US under George W. Bush and now Neo-Liberal Obama refuses to recognize Khadr as a "CHILD SOLDIER"
Canada Prime Minister Harper like his predecessor Kow Tow to US Officials -Harper still hoping Canada will merge with USA ??? or that he will get a multimillion dollar Job working for Big Oil or the US government??? that is when he leaves politics.

Guantanamo Inmate Khadr Refuses Plea Deal, Says Would Give US Government Excuse for Torture Agence France Presse, Via Common Dreams, July 13, 2010

GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba - A young Canadian, the last Westerner held at Guantanamo Bay, said he would not defend himself after refusing a US plea deal, insisting his military trial was a sham.

"I will not take any of the offers because it'll give the US government an excuse for torturing me and abusing me when I was a child," Omar Khadr, 23, told a military tribunal at the remote jail in Cuba.

He and his Canadian lawyer confirmed he had refused a plea deal under which he would only have to serve five years of a 30-year sentence in Guantanamo if he admitted war crimes charges, which normally carry a life term.

Lawyer Dennis Edney said under the deal another part of the term would have been spent in Canada, but his client refused to plead guilty.

"Mr Khadr could not admit to something he didn't do. He didn't kill anybody," Edney said.

US forces in Afghanistan took Khadr prisoner when he was just 15 years old in July 2002. He has now been in Guantanamo Bay for eight years.

The US government alleges that Khadr killed a US soldier with a grenade in 2002 after rising from the rubble of an Al-Qaeda compound, the lone survivor of a four-hour US bombardment.

Khadr said he no longer intended to participate in the proceedings after firing his American defense team last week for the third time and complaining of the "unfairness and injustice" of the military commission.

"I will not willingly let the US government use me to fulfill its goal. I have been used too many times when I was a child, and that's why I'm here taking blame and paying for things I didn't have a choice in doing but was told to do by elders," Khadr said.

"It's going to be the same thing with lawyers or without lawyers. It's going to be life sentence," he said.

When presiding judge Army Colonel Patrick Parrish told Khadr he had to be present in court to represent himself without his lawyers, the young man replied: "I might be present, but I won't be participating."

But Parrish ordered the American military defense lawyer, Lieutenant Colonel Jon Jackson, to stay on, against Khadr's wishes. Parrish also did not grant Khadr permission to represent himself.

Under the rules of the military tribunals at Guantanamo, Khadr's Canadian lawyers cannot represent him without US attorneys.

Edney decried a system that would require his client's admission of guilt in order to obtain leniency. "It's a tragedy, this young man who's been abandoned and has lost hope," he said.
