June 16, 2004 | TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP) -- A key investigator in an espionage case against a former interpreter at the Guantanamo Bay prison now faces criminal charges himself, including rape, sodomy and fondling girls, the Air Force said.
Tech. Sgt. Marc Palmosina, who assisted the lead investigator in the case of Ahmad Al Halabi, was charged May 26 with the crimes near Travis and near Kadena Air Base in Japan as long ago as 1998. It is unclear how many victims were involved, Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Col. Jennifer Cassidy said Tuesday.
Palmosina also is accused of mishandling classified documents in 2001 and 2003. Cassidy said the investigation into these crimes is ongoing, and that the charges have nothing to do with the case against Al Halabi, a senior airman.
The charges against Palmosina were revealed Tuesday outside court by Al Halabi's civilian defense lawyer, Donald Rehkopf Jr., who has accused the Air Force of sloppy investigative work that resulted in unwarranted charges against his client. The Air Force later released a document outlining the charges against Palmosina.
Palmosina's military lawyer was away on an assignment Tuesday and unavailable for comment.
In May, Rehkopf filed a motion asking for the dismissal of all charges against Al Halabi, who faces 17 criminal counts including attempted espionage, lying and misconduct. If convicted of the most serious charges, he could be sentenced to life in a military prison. The military judge will likely rule Wednesday.
"The case was poorly investigated from the beginning," Rehkopf said Tuesday during a court break. "The more we dig into it, the less evidence there is."
Al Halabi, 25, was a supply clerk at the Travis base until the military's demand for Arabic speakers increased sharply and he was sent to Guantanamo, where suspected terrorists are being held. He was arrested in July as he prepared to leave for Syria, where he said he planned to marry his girlfriend.
Palmosina helped the lead investigator in the case, Special Agent Lance Wega. Rehkopf alleges that Wega and agents with the Air Force's Office of Special Investigations drank beer, failed to wear gloves and rifled through the contents of a box seized as evidence from Al Halabi, then repacked the box to "pretend and mislead" that they were following protocol.
Special Agent Christopher Birch, who also was in the room when the box was opened, was called by prosecutors to testify Tuesday. He portrayed the incident as an innocent mistake that was quickly remedied. "
God... I know that whether I can see it or not, You have a plan in place. Help me to have the strength, honor, wisdom, humility, and love I will need to do Your will. I weep to see our government destroying the ideals of liberty, defiling Mother Nature, denying Your creations basic rights, attempting to further destroy what was once a great land. Help me to do the right things, help me to encourage people everywhere to vote, help me to not become twisted, cynical, self-righteous, confused, or misguided. I love you. Thanks for all that you are, and for what you will continue to be."

A lunatic Christian cult has the run of the White House and the ear of the president. What do they want? The end of the world. Be afraid.
Every truly religious person can tell the story of his or her moment of conversion. Mine came when I heard that the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq would now be called Camp Redemption. I can think of 100 more appropriate names, including the International House of Torture, Leashland, or Symbolic Pile of Rubble. But no, Camp Redemption it will be. I didn't see God, exactly, upon learning of the holy camp. It's more like I saw our president's God clearly, for the first time. Yea, I did shiver at the sight of his flaming sword!
Who or what, exactly, will Camp Redemption redeem? The people who committed the torture? They're currently either being sacrificed in show trials or slowly having their names erased from our collective memory by some sort of sinister government mind-control device. Is it our international reputation? That would have to be one whale of a camp. Or what about the prisoners themselves? Come, you heathens! A ticket to heaven awaits you at... Camp Redemption!
Like everything else churned out by the Bush administration, Camp Redemption is an Orwellian nonsense term. It's a big old jail, people. Get over yourselves. I'm offended nonetheless. We all know that "redemption," under this president, can only be handed out by one mythical figure, Jesus Christ himself. I have no truck with the many good men and women of the United States who believe in Jesus, but that doesn't mean that I share their specific belief. Heaven help me, I'm an American, not a Christian. I don't want my tax dollars going to help Halliburton "build" bridges, and I don't want my semi-hard-earned money going to "redeem" anyone in my name. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, my ass. This is a secular country. "

ASHINGTON, June 16 - Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, acting at the request of George J. Tenet, the director of central intelligence, ordered military officials in Iraq last November to hold a man suspected of being a senior Iraqi terrorist at a high-level detention center there but not list him on the prison's rolls, senior Pentagon and intelligence officials said Wednesday.
This prisoner and other "ghost detainees" were hidden largely to prevent the International Committee of the Red Cross from monitoring their treatment, and to avoid disclosing their location to an enemy, officials said.
Maj. Gen. Antonio M. Taguba, the Army officer who in February investigated abuses at the Abu Ghraib prison, criticized the practice of allowing ghost detainees there and at other detention centers as "deceptive, contrary to Army doctrine, and in violation of international law."
This prisoner, who has not been named, is believed to be the first to have been kept off the books at the orders of Mr. Rumsfeld and Mr. Tenet. He was not held at Abu Ghraib, but at another prison, Camp Cropper, on the outskirts of Baghdad International Airport, officials said.
Pentagon and intelligence officials said the decision to hold the detainee without registering him - at least initially - was in keeping with the administration's legal opinion about the status of those viewed as an active threat in wartime.
Seven months later, however, the detainee - a reputed senior officer of Ansar al-Islam, a group the United States has linked to Al Qaeda and blames for some attacks in Iraq - is still languishing at the prison but has only been questioned once while in detention, in what government officials acknowledged was an extraordinary lapse.
"Once he was placed in military custody, people lost track of him," a senior intelligence official conceded Wednesday night. "The normal review processes that would keep track of him didn't."
The detainee was described by the official as someone "who was actively planning operations specifically targeting U.S. forces and interests both inside and outside of Iraq."
But once he was placed into custody at Camp Cropper, where about 100 detainees deemed to have the highest intelligence value are held, he received only one cursory arrival interrogation from military officers and was never again questioned by any other military or intelligence officers, according to Pentagon and intelligence officials.
The Pentagon's chief spokesman, Lawrence Di Rita, said Wednesday that officials at Camp Cropper questioned their superiors several times in recent months about what to do with the suspect.
But only in the last two weeks has Mr. Rumsfeld's top aide for intelligence policy, Stephen A. Cambone, called C.I.A. senior officials to request that the agency deal with the suspect or else have him go into the prison's regular reporting system.
Mr. Di Rita referred questions about the prisoner's fate to the C.I.A.
A senior intelligence official said late Wednesday that "the matter is currently under discussion."
In July 2003, the man suspected of being an Ansar al-Islam official was captured in Iraq and turned over to C.I.A. officials, who took him to an undisclosed location outside of Iraq for interrogation. By that fall, however, a C.I.A. legal analysis determined that because the detainee was deemed to be an Iraqi unlawful combatant - outside the protections of the Geneva Conventions - he should be transferred back to Iraq.
Mr. Tenet made his request to Mr. Rumsfeld - that the suspect be held but not listed - in October. The request was passed down the chain of command: to Gen. Richard B. Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, then to Gen. John P. Abizaid, the commander of American forces in the Middle East, and finally to Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez, the ground commander in Iraq. At each stage, lawyers reviewed the request and their bosses approved it."
"Patients notified of possible HIV, hepatitis exposure
Wednesday, June 16, 2004 Posted: 10:19 AM EDT (1419 GMT)
MANHASSET, New York (AP) -- A hospital notified 177 patients that they may have been exposed to HIV or hepatitis because equipment used to check their digestive systems might not have been properly cleaned.
North Shore University Hospital spokesman Terry Lynam said doctors believed the risk of transmission was "minuscule" and that the letters were a precautionary measure.
Of the 177 people sent letters last week, 86 have already undergone tests and none have tested positive for either virus, the hospital said. All of them are supposed to be retested in six months.
The hospital said it did not have records that medical instruments used for upper endoscopies or colonoscopies were properly disinfected for procedures performed from April 28 to May 10.
Workers apparently failed to test disinfectant levels in the water used in a cleaning machine, the hospital said. One of the workers was fired and a second has been suspended without pay, it said.
The procedures involve inserting a flexible tube through the patient's mouth or rectum to check the upper or lower digestive system for abnormalities."

"FindLaw) -- At this year's graduation at the University of California at Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law, about one-quarter of graduates wore red armbands. They were protesting Boalt law professor John Yoo's co-authorship of a memorandum written in 2002, when he served in the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel.
In the memorandum, Yoo expressed the view that neither those whom the government deems to be al Qaeda members, nor those whom it deems to be Taliban members, are covered by the Geneva Conventions. That strongly implies -- though the memo does not explicitly state -- that detainees in Afghanistan and in Guantanamo who are suspected of being al Qaeda or Taliban members are not covered by the Geneva Conventions' protections against abuse or torture.
It's important to stress that under Yoo's approach, the class of those unprotected by the Geneva Conventions includes not only well-known leaders thought to have information about terrorist attacks, but also any person suspected of being an al Qaeda or Taliban member. Effectively, the logic of Yoo's memo strips all persons deemed to be possible terrorists of Geneva Convention protections (unless, as in Iraq, the president has specifically deemed the Conventions to apply).
Human rights attorneys have complained that Yoo's Geneva Conventions argument, with respect to al Qaeda and the Taliban, is not only wrong, but, in their view, specious -- a misreading of the law. They have also noted that Yoo's memo leaves out an important treaty that the U.S. has ratified: The Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
Granted, Yoo and his co-author did not specifically take up the issue of abuse and torture, and were very clear that their memo covered only legal, not policy issues. But they must have known the possibility of torture was a real one, and the memo lacked any stern caveats about legal or moral issues. And in the international law arena, the lines between law, policy, and ethics can be unclear -- suggesting an especially great need for caveats.
Some Boalt Hall students see a connection between Yoo's memo and the reported abuses in U.S.-run prisons abroad -- in particular, Abu Ghraib. They have denounced Yoo for "aiding and abetting war crimes."
Might he actually have done so?
No allegation of hypocrisy or catering
Ashcroft: President has not ordered torture.
The Iraqi prison abuse scandal heads to military court.
Gallery: Abuse at Abu Ghraib prison (Contains graphic content. Viewer discretion advised.)
• Lawyers: Bush has broad authority
• Gallery: Soldiers charged
• Taguba: No direct order
• Inhofe: Prisoners 'terrorists'
• Timeline: Iraq abuse case
What's important to first note, is that there is no accusation being made that Yoo changed his views in order to give the Bush administration advice it wanted. To the contrary, Yoo has pointed out that his academic articles have stated the very same views he expressed in the memo.
So it appears that what Yoo wrote was what he has long believed. Indeed, Yoo was likely chosen by the Bush administration to advise precisely because of the views he held, as laid out in his prior academic articles.
Some may say there is nothing wrong with this: Any administration is entitled to choose like-minded advisors. But when the advisors are lawyers, the issue becomes more complex.
For example, whereas a president should choose a national security adviser because their views on the world situation must be copacetic, a president (or his advisers) should not choose a government attorney because he or she likely will not put legal obstacles in the president's path. Particularly in this context, choosing a lawyer with a strong, near-absolute view of executive power means choosing someone who will likely set no legal limits.
This choice, ought to be laid at the administration's door -- not Yoo's. But Yoo's own choices can also be called into question.
Giving legal advice as a moral act
Some have claimed the controversy over Yoo's memo at Berkeley is simply an academic freedom/free speech issue, and urged that the answer is obvious: Yoo he ought to be able to express whatever views he chooses. But Yoo did more than just express views; in writing the memo, he also offered counsel.
After all, Yoo's articles alone could have been used to justify administration action, even if he had never worked for the government. What his memo added -- as he was doubtless aware -- was cover. It provides cover for the administration, in the event there are future attempts to prosecute administration members for war crimes. In such proceedings, he doubtless anticipated that advice of counsel could either be used as a formal defense, or at the very least, a persuasive point in favor of the defense: "My lawyer told me it was legal."
Of course, legal opinions are used for -- indeed, procured for -- what amounts to "cover" all the time in private practice. But the government should be held to a higher standard; an executive official should seek a legal opinion for candor, not cover. And from the government attorney's point of view, the attorney should realize that giving legal advice that one knows will be used in a certain way is a morally freighted act, and that when basic human rights are at stake, the moral import of that advice is even graver.
In sum, the Berkeley students who have protested Yoo's action in writing the memo should not simply be accused of being anti-academic freedom. They are arguing that through the act of giving counsel, Yoo acted immorally, perhaps even illegally.
They object, that is, to what the memo adds to the views Yoo had already expressed in academic articles: A specific blessing from a person acting not as professor, but as attorney. Lawyers' advice matters: It can make people hesitate, or spur them on.
No link to Abu Ghraib
That brings us back to students' specific accusation: That Yoo, in writing his memo, aided and abetted war crimes.
As noted above, Yoo expressed the view that accused al Qaeda and Taliban members aren't covered by the Geneva Conventions. The bottom line: They have no legal protection against torture or other abuse.
Yoo's view that the Geneva Convention does not apply would presumably have covered suspected Iraqi resistance or Al Qaeda members in Abu Ghraib and other prisons, too. However, as he noted in a recent Wall Street Journal Op Ed, the president "announced" early on that he deemed the Geneva Conventions do apply in Iraq, and must now abide by his word.
Thus, it's not fair to link Yoo's memo to the Abu Ghraib abuses -- as some students have done. Any influence Yoo's memo might have had as to comparably situated prisoners in Iraq, was probably superseded by the president's own announced view.
But it is fair to hold Yoo morally responsible for the causal role his memo may be playing outside Iraq.
Could Yoo's memo cause, abuses?
While Yoo does not expressly discuss torture in his memo, it seems impossible that the issue would not have been on his mind. After all, he co-wrote the memo in the wake of September 11, when the interrogation of suspected terrorists and other suspected hostile persons was already a priority for the Bush administration.
In addition to the Abu Ghraib abuses, there have also been much less publicized reports of possible acts of torture and abuse by U.S. forces in connection with the war on terrorism elsewhere -- in Guantanamo, and in Afghanistan's prisons. Yoo's memo may have played a causal role in fostering these possible abuses -- not only because of what it said, but because of what it did not say.
Had the memo taken an opposite view, would-be torturers might have thought long and hard before going ahead. Indeed, had the memo even been written more equivocally, and more responsibly -- for instance, stressing the immorality of any torture, while expressing the view that it was technically legal -- then it might have triggered greater qualms on the part of those who sought to rely on it as permission.
So while students' claim that Yoo "aided and abetted" war crimes may have sounded like overheated rhetoric, from a causal standpoint, at least, it may turn out to be reality.
Suppose the memo did cause abuses. Is it also fair to say, as students have, that it "aided and abetted" them? From a moral point of view, possibly. But from a legal point of view, probably not.
Even if Yoo's Geneva Convention views are indeed a blatant misreading of the law, as human rights groups claim, it would be very dangerous (from a legal point of view) to deem the giving of even specious legal advice a form of aiding and abetting.
There are many strong institutional reasons not to make lawyers -- in particular, here, government lawyers -- criminally responsible for "aiding and abetting" their clients' actions: Most obviously, to put governments' attorneys on trial for war crimes would only deter future lawyers from candidly advising heads of state -- a potentially disastrous consequence.
Similarly, there are strong institutional reasons not to put professors' jobs in jeopardy because they gave advice to the government, no matter what that advice may have been. For one thing, such advice could become a pretext for removing a professor whose academic articles are controversial, thereby risking an impingement on academic freedom. (Yoo has suggested that is what is happening here, and it's certainly possible -- although it's also possible that it is truly the memo itself, and its possible causal connection to abuses, that has sparked students' outrage.)
Speciousness can also be too much in the eye of the beholder to form the basis for criminal penalties, or for removal from a position in a job integrally involving free speech. (Indeed, constitutional prohibitions against vagueness in criminal statues strongly counsel keeping lawyers' advice out of the criminal realm entirely.)
But Yoo's actions still can be judged morally -- and judged harshly. And from a moral point of view, students are right to protest them. They are right to do so if they find Yoo's Geneva Convention views specious. They are right to do so if they simply find torture immoral and wrong. And they are right to do so if they are concerned, as I am, with the especially horrific prospect Yoo's views open up: that entirely innocent persons may be, or have been, subject to torture and abuse.
Innocent detainees are left helpless
At the same time that Yoo advised the president that the Geneva Conventions did not apply to al Qaeda and Taliban detainees at Guantanamo and elsewhere, he also advised, in a separate memo, that no U.S. court can review claims by Guantanamo detainees saying that they are innocent of any crime, and are not even members of such groups in the first place.
This advice, too, is morally suspect, and could lead to abuse. With no judicial review, no Geneva Conventions protection, no procedure to prove innocence, and the current, freighted "war on terrorism" atmosphere adding pressures to the mix, surely the possibility that innocent persons will be tortured or abused is a very real one.
For those who open up such possibilities, hiding behind a law degree and an official position does not mitigate the wrongness of what is done."
I personally am deeply troubled by Mr. Yoo's memo, and think that this kind of mindset is very much a problematic one in a country which espouses the virtues of freedom and fairplay.

A new book by a prominent Washington psychoanalyst says President George W. Bush is a "paranoid meglomaniac" as well as a sadist and "untreated alcoholic." The doctor's analysis appears to confirm earlier reports the President may be emotionally unstable.
Dr. Justin Frank, writing in Bush on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President, also says the President has a ""lifelong streak of sadism, ranging from childhood pranks (using firecrackers to explode frogs) to insulting journalists, gloating over state executions ... [and] pumping his fist gleefully before the bombing of Baghdad."
Even worse, Dr. Frank concludes, the President's years of heavy drinking ""may have affected his brain function - and his decision to quit drinking without the help of a 12-step program [puts] him at far higher risk of relapse."
Dr. Frank's revelations comes on the heels of last week's Capitol Hill Blue exclusive that revealed increasing concern by White House aides over Bush's emotional stability.
Aides, who spoke only on condition that their names be withheld, told stories of wide mood swings by the President who would go from quoting the Bible one minute to obscenity-filled outbursts the next.
Bush shows an inability to grieve - dating back to age 7, when his sister died. "The family's reaction - no funeral and no mourning - set in motion his life-long pattern of turning away from pain [and hiding] behind antic behavior," says Frank, who says Bush may suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Other findings by Dr. Frank:
His mother, Barbara Bush - tabbed by some family friends as "the one who instills fear" - had trouble connecting emotionally with her son, Frank argues.
George H.W. Bush's "emotional and physical absence during his son's youth triggered feelings of both adoration and revenge in George W."
The President suffers from "character pathology," including "grandiosity" and "megalomania" -- viewing himself, America and God as interchangeable.
Dr. Frank has been a psychiatrist for 35 years and is director of psychiatry at George Washington University. A Democrat, he once headed the Washington Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility.
In an interview with The Washington Post's Richard Leiby, Dr. Frank said he began to be concerned about Bush's behavior in 2002.
"I was really very unsettled by him and I started watching everything he did and reading what he wrote, and watching him on videotape. I felt he was disturbed," Dr. Frank told Leiby. Bush, he said, "fits the profile of a former drinker whose alcoholism has been arrested but not treated."
Dr. Frank's expert recommendation? ""Our sole treatment option -- for his benefit and for ours -- is to remove President Bush from office . . . before it is too late."
White House spokesman Scott McClellan refused to comment on the specifics of Dr. Frank's book or the earlier story by Capitol Hill Blue.
"I don't do book reviews," McClellan said, even though he last week recommended the latest book by the Washington Post's Bob Woodward to reporters at the daily press briefing."
London June 09, 2004 5:01:52 PM IST
Dr Justin Frank, a Washington based psychoanalyst, contends that his new book 'Bush on The Couch' is based on the applied psychoanalysis of the US President.
According to him, Bush is an "untreated ex-alcoholic" with paranoid and megalomaniac tendencies.
"He's very affable. "I like his sense of humor." Frank, a professor of psychiatry at George Washington University Medical Center, was quoted as saying.
According to The Daily News, the results of Frank's analysis are as follows:
Bush shows an inability to grieve - dating back to age 7, when his sister died.
"The family's reaction of no funeral and no mourning, set in motion his life-long pattern of turning away from pain [and hiding] behind antic behavior," says Frank, who says Bush may be suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
His mother, Barbara Bush too had trouble connecting with her son emotionally.
Bush has shown a "lifelong streak of sadism," ranging from "childhood pranks (using firecrackers to explode frogs)" to "insulting journalists, gloating over state executions ... [and] pumping his fist gleefully before the bombing of Baghdad."
Bush's years of drinking "may have affected his brain function - and his decision to quit drinking without the help of a 12-step program [puts] him at far higher risk of relapse." (ANI)"
"Bush On the Couch
Inside the Mind of the President
by Justin A. Frank, M.D
"I don't spend a lot of time trying to figure me out. ... I'm just not into psychobabble."
-- George W. Bush
For all his simplicity and affability, George W. Bush has remained, to paraphrase Sir Winston Churchill, "a mystery wrapped in an enigma." In Bush on the Couch, Dr. Justin A. Frank, a well-respected Washington, D.C.–based psychoanalyst and professor of psychiatry, unwraps that mystery, assembling a comprehensive psychological profile of President Bush. Using the principles of applied psychoanalysis -- the discipline of psychoanalyzing public and historical figures pioneered by Freud -- Frank fearlessly builds his case ... and reaches conclusions that are at once highly persuasive and deeply disturbing.
Through a close analysis of Bush's public statements and behavior, as well as the historical record provided by journalists, biographers, and those who have known the president well, Frank traces the development of Bush's character from childhood to the present day. Examining closely the role of the president's parents -- especially Barbara Bush, an acknowledged disciplinarian whose own insecurities may have prevented her from adequately nurturing her son -- Frank finds in Bush's childhood the roots of a dramatic psychic split that remains a dominant influence on his adult worldview. Frank argues that this split has inevitably hampered Bush's ability to manage his emotions, charging his psyche with restless anxiety, and conditioning him to view the world in the black-and-white terms that have so evidently shaped his administration.
Among the other subjects Frank explores:
Bush's false sense of omnipotence, instilled within him during childhood and emboldened by his deep investment in fundamentalist religion
The president's history of untreated alcohol abuse, and the questions it raises about denial, impairment, and the enabling streak in our culture
The growing anecdotal evidence that Bush may suffer from dyslexia, ADHD, and other thought disorders
His comfort living outside the law, defying international law in his presidency as boldly as he once defied DUI statutes and military reporting requirements
His love-hate relationship with his father, and how it triggered a complex and dangerous mix of feelings including yearning, rivalry, anger, and sadism
Bush's rigid and simplistic thought patterns, paranoia, and megalomania -- and how they have driven him to invent adversaries so that he can destroy them
At once a compelling portrait of George W. Bush and a damning indictment of his policies, Bush on the Couch sheds startling new light on an administration whose record of violence and cruelty seems increasingly dependent on the unstable psyche of the man at its center. Insightful and accessible, courageous and controversial, Bush on the Couch tackles the question no one seems willing to ask: Is our president psychologically fit to run the country? "

plea to aid in the hunt for a missing child began circulating on the Internet in mid-September 2001. There's no reason to place any reliance upon it — none of the many missing children sites list a Penny Brown among the many youngsters they are looking for, and a search of news archives in the U.S.A. and Canada turns up no news reports about a missing child of this name.
The e-mail itself provides few clues on which to base a search. Not even the city or country the child went missing from is mentioned, and other than the pointless "has been missing for now two weeks," no date is given for the disappearance. ("For now two weeks" statements are entirely useless in a medium wherein undated text is circulated — the "two weeks" ago of an e-mail can and often has referred to events years in the past.) Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org bounces.
Credible missing child reports tend to supply details of when and where the child was last seen, a description of the clothes worn, and phone numbers of folks to contact with sightings. This e-mail lacks all of that — not even the parents' names are given.
(We don't know the identity of the girl in the accompanying picture, but the photo definitely isn't one of a young Melissa Gilbert of Little House on the Prairie TV fame.)
One version of the widely-circulated e-mail makes it appear the plea is coming from Monzine Jang, a woman who works for a physician at the University of Calgary. A call to the number provided in the e-mail fetches the following automated voice message:
If you are calling regarding an e-mail about a missing girl, please do not forward it as she is not the daughter of Monzine Jang. Monzine has contacted the Calgary police and missing children organization and she believes this is a hoax.
Another version claims the frantic mother is Helen Bessenyei, a woman who lives in Australia. Helen has three grown sons, but no daughter, and certainly not a missing nine-year-old named Penny Brown. This hoax has left her answering up to 150 e-mails a day and fielding hundreds of phone calls.
Yet another version purports to have come from a woman named Kimberly Leon. A further version says the child went missing in Austin, Texas. And still another version claims the child was lost in Ottawa, Ontario. Winning the "farthest away" category is a version that claims the child went missing in Singapore.
A further iteration — this one translated into French — is "signed" by Carol Toteda of Montreal. Another version that was translated into French is "signed" by Anne-Claire Kubala, who gives an address that places her in Paris.
Also placing the tale in Canada is a version "signed" by Annie Lachance that asserts the missing Penny is the child of one of the store managers from Metro-Richelieu (a large grocery store).
Another form of it that begins "We have a store manager from Longs Drugs in Southern California, whose 9 year old daughter has been missing for 2 weeks" is signed "Peggy."
Closely related to the previous is a version that says "We have a store manager from Longs, S C who has a 9 year old daughter that has been missing for 2 weeks." It too has been signed by "Peggy."
In yet another twist, the e-mail appears signed by one "Penny Hill MS 59, Sunnyvale - AMD."
Those who are still somewhat convinced this e-mailed alert might be true should take a look at the text of the "missing kid" alert quoted in the Example section of our page about Christopher Mineo.

"FDA Panel Backs Implant To Counter Depression
But Questions Linger About Manufacturer Data
By Shankar Vedantam
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, June 16, 2004; Page A03
A surgical implant that stimulates the brain should get government approval to treat chronic depression, an expert panel of federal experts said yesterday -- marking the first time an implanted device has been recommended for the treatment of a psychiatric disorder.
Using a technique known as vagus nerve stimulation, the device uses electrodes implanted in the neck to activate brain regions that are believed to regulate mood.
The decision by an expert advisory panel of the Food and Drug Administration came after a day of clashing scientific opinions about whether the data submitted by the manufacturer were adequate for approval. Proponents of the device prevailed, citing the desperate need of patients with chronic depression that does not respond to existing treatments.
"We lost four of these individuals in the last 2 1/2 hours," said A. John Rush, a psychiatrist at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, basing that figure on the high suicide rate among patients with resistant depression.
The verdict by the advisory panel came after FDA scientists and some panel members argued the data presented by the manufacturer to show the device works were not convincing.
The agency is not required to follow the guidance of its advisory committee but usually does.
The device has been used in the United States since 1997 to control epileptic seizures. The manufacturer, Cyberonics Inc. of Houston, hopes to expand its market: Fifteen to 25 percent of the 19 million Americans with depression may not respond to available treatments, Rush said.
The implant involves connecting a wire to the left vagus nerve in the side of the neck; a battery is implanted high in the left chest or under the armpit, and the amount of current can be regulated externally. Typically, the implant sends a 30-second pulse of current followed by a five-minute pause, 24 hours a day.
Karmen McGuffee of Garland, Tex., told the panel she had tried virtually every antidepressant drug on the market before getting the device. Improvement came within weeks, she said.
"My mother said she wasn't looking into the eyes of a dead person anymore," she said. When people asked why she was willing to get an implant, she replied, "I had nothing to lose."
FDA Panel Backs Implant To Counter Depression
McGuffee was paid by Cyberonics to testify. Rush, who was paid to conduct some of the clinical trials, said there are 30,000 suicides a year in America, about 80 percent of them attributable to depression. Half of those are among patients with treatment-resistant depression who had tried multiple therapies and were still not better, he said.
In response to suggestions by some panel members that the company conduct another trial, Rush warned, "In the time to do another trial, we will lose another 1,000 patients a month, 36,000 if the trial takes three years."
Still, at least two members of the eight-member panel said the company had not provided sufficient evidence.
"It's possible this is a viable treatment; it is also possible it is not a treatment," said Richard P. Malone, a psychiatrist at Philadelphia's MCP Hahnemann University. "I'm not sure it is ethical to give a treatment for which there is not substantial evidence."
Malone and another panel member, statistician Jonas Ellenberg, nearly convinced other panelists that the company should conduct another trial, but the proposal was shot down after a tense vote, with one panelist changing her mind. The chairwoman of the panel, Kyra Becker, a neurologist at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, cast the deciding vote.
The panelists mostly agreed that the data presented by Cyberonics had problems but were swayed by the lack of alternative treatments and the evidence that the device is generally safe, based on its widespread use to reduce epileptic seizures.
Cyberonics' central study was a randomized trial involving 221 patients. All received implants, but the power was turned on for only half the group.
Of 111 patients getting stimulation, 17 showed an improvement of at least 50 percent on a psychiatric scale of depression after 12 weeks. Of 110 patients getting "sham" treatment, only 10 showed similar improvement. The difference between the groups was not statistically significant, however.
The company conducted a separate analysis with patients in another study. This group involved 124 patients who were similarly ill but were not getting vagus nerve stimulation. The company showed trend data that over 12 months, patients with the device were significantly better compared with those getting drugs or electro-convulsive therapy.
Malone, Ellenberg and the FDA's statisticians expressed worry that the two groups of patients were not comparable and the apparent benefit might be statistically spurious. Cyberonics officials argued that conducting a new trial would be problematic because of the special needs of this patient group. "

Buying Border Patrol Uniforms in Mexicom
Because of their cute little name change....of COURSE they need new uniforms.
And, since our country is hurting for work, of course you would expect them to purchase
these uniforms with OUR money from vendors in the USA, right?
WRONG Grasshopper...the pebble is in the other hand.
Our gov spent 30 million dollars to get these new uniforms, which are MADE in MEXICO
(Hecho en Mexico). Now, their NEW worry is that since they are made in Mexico, that
an underground black market will develop in which some of the uniforms will find their
way into the hands of Mexican citizens wishing to escape to the USA, and that they will be enabled in that project, by shiny new, official, US Customs and Border Protection
Que lastima, ojala que se mejore pronto!
SKILLSET for JOBS in the 21st CENTURY
1) Bush would not rest until every American who wants a job has one
2) They are working on developing a "skillset for jobs in the 21st century".
From what I can see...the main skillset for jobs in the 21st Century includes
1) Must live in China , Singapore, or India.
2) Must work for the least amount of money possible,put up with longest hours working possible, and must agree to work in horrible, stressful conditions.
End of story.

LIES and the LYING LIARS WHO TELL THEM
See, this is the problem that Winston Smith from 1984, is having here in the 21st Century. The gov has reclassified fast food jobs, i.e. slapping together a hamburger, as a MANUFACTURING job...and then, proudly proclaimed there were so many NEW manufacturing jobs created...
There were not all these new jobs created such that jobless people now have a "manufacturing job" in a real manufacturing business...you just reclassified an already existing job, into a ludicrous classification.
They are NOT counting the thousands or millions of "discouraged" workers who have just given up due to frustration.
Inflation is increasing at a breakneck speed, the gov continues to say outsourcing is "good", and more people are losing houses and jobs every day!

Nixon took us off the gold standard in 1971 I believe.
Every eight hours, our gov spends a BILLION dollars that we don't have!
John Snow, Sec of Treasury was asked on CSPAN, what backs the American dollar...is it gold, silver, oil...WHAT?
He said that our dollars are backed by the "hard work and resourcefulness of the American worker". WHAT??????
That means, the dollar in your pocket cannot be traded in for any tangible thing of value. A paper dollar is not backed by any precious metal, any tangible resource. The FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM (a private group of banks which has never been audited, and was created on Jekyll Island off Georgia, by the Money Trust, just makes up money out of thin air. That is why your money buys less now that it used to...it is just a fiat currency and has no real intrinsic value (by that I am implying the paper and ink used are good for fueling a very tiny fire and not much else...and burning money , by a citizen not affiliated with the treasury, is a federal violation).
