The Fix is In - American Media Ignore Downing Street Memo

A leak transcript of a meeting with the British Prime Minister well before the invasion of Iraq showed that the US had decided to go to war even though it had no proof of weapons of mass destruction. Mainstream media argue that there is no news, that the American people already knew that the Bush admistration was mistaken. Conservative talk show hosts continue to deny that there are any problems. In a small, cramped room in the Capitol, Cong. Conyers held hearings on the Downing Street Memo. Ralph Nader, the Green Party and Rep. Maurice Hinchey call for impeachment.

Hidden Clause in No Child Left Behind Act Lets Parents Opt-Out

School districts around the US are struggling to comply with the No Child Left Behind Act. The Act threatens to cut federal funds if they fail to provide military recruiters with phone numbers and other personal information about students. But a little known clause gives parents and students the right to opt out of the military listing. Last night in Watsonville, California, the Pajaro Valley School Board voted 4-3 to improve the notification process to parents that their child's information will be handed over to recruiters. FSRN's Vinny Lombardo has more.

Did George W. Bush Steal America's 2004 Election?

A post-election headline from the Akron Beacon Journal cites a critical report by twelve prominent social scientists and statisticians, reporting: "Analysis Points to Election ‘Corruption': Group Says Chance of Exit Polls Being So Wrong in '04 Vote is One-in-959,000." Citing "Ohio's Odd Numbers," investigative reporter Christopher Hitchens, a Bush supporter, says in Vanity Fair: "Given what happened in that key state on Election Day 2004, both democracy and common sense cry out for a court-ordered inspection of its new voting machines."

Kucinich: New Urgency to bipartisan efforts to pass "Homeward Bound"

Last night’s nationally televised speech by the President made it clear we are in Iraq for time indefinite...Withdrawal from Iraq has never been in the Administration’s plans - not when the war was being planned, nor during its execution. The occupation in "sovereign" Iraq will continue unless we stop it. We are building several permanent military bases in Iraq. "We will stay in Iraq as long as we are needed, and not a day longer," the President said last night. When the Administration ties Iraq into the "War on Terror" the war never has to end.
