The shadow of Iraq: Hutton report a total whitewash: "The report by Lord Hutton into the death of British weapons scientist David Kelly is a sideshow and whitewash. By setting up an inquiry into the Kelly affair, UK Prime Minister Tony Blair created a partially successful diversion from the far more serious - and more threatening to him personally - questions raised by the war itself. The real issue is who will pay the price for war and occupation, writes The Guardian's Seumas Milne."

Robin's Winds of War: Jan 26/04: "Welcome! Our goal is to give you one power-packed briefing of insights, news and trends from the global War on Terror that leaves you stimulated, informed, and occasionally amused every Monday & Thursday. Today's "Winds of War" is brought to you by Robin Burk.
TOP TOPICS
  • The threat of nuclear proliferation, especially to non-state entities (such as Islamacist terror networks) is serious and growing. Libya's decision to renounce WMD programs has blown the cover off of a black market in nuclear technologies.The head of the IAEA, Mohammed elBaradai, says that illicit trafficking of nuclear-related material and equipment has grown so widespread that it amounts to a Wal-Mart for weapons-seeking countries.

Other Topics Today Include: Blair, Straw defend the decision to invade Iraq; Iraqi WMD in Syria?; Iraqi Marines; power struggle in Iran; prisoner swap in ME ; Israel & her neighbours; al Qaeda supporter indicted in US ; China and France get together; German armed forces restructure.
