Yvonne Ridley Launches "Respect Party" Bid for UK Parliment
In an exclusive interview with the Kuwait Times, Ridley said she had become "sick of the lies and hypocrisy which followed from the invasion of Iraq". "I was a member of the Labour Party until last month when I tore up my party membership card," the 45-year-old said. "It is embarrassing when your party leader is globally called a poodle and then he scampers off to Washington to take his orders from George W. Bush."

"The immediate problem we have to remember is we started this ... with the aggressive policies towards Sadr that came from us, shutting down his press," Col. Sam Gardiner said.

The program's anchor spoke next.

Jim Lehrer: "The reason we shut down his press is because it was calling for violence and anti-American --"

Col. Gardiner: "Sure."

Lehrer: "I just want to get that on the record."

But Lehrer's comment -- ostensibly setting the record straight -- was at odds with the available factual record about Sadr's newspaper. In sync with other news accounts, the New York Times had reported two days earlier that "the paper did not print any calls for attacks."

U.S. Reporters Unable to Probe Killings in Fallujah
The accusations of mass killings in Fallujah, and on a smaller scale in other cities in the past week, have led some Iraqi Governing Council members to criticize the U.S. military and threaten to resign. It has also fed rising anti-American anger in the country. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have both expressed concerns about the civilian toll.

American reporters may be eager to provide some objective answers, but most are unable or unwilling to venture out of the relative security of downtown Baghdad.

Ideological Hegemony: Thought Control in America
In June 2003 a Washington Post-ABC News poll found that about 1 in 4 Americans (incorrectly) believed Iraq had used weapons of mass destruction during the recent war with the United States. A separate poll in the same month found that 34% of Americans believed the United States had already found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. In September another poll found that 69% of Americans believed Saddam Hussein was personally involved in 9-11.

Even the Bush administration has been forced to admit that these claims are not true. These misconceptions are the outcome of a system of thought control called ideological hegemony.

WHAT WERE THE AMERICAN MERCENARIES IN FALLUJAH REALLY DOING?
The story about the 'civilians' being mercenaries working for a civilian contractor is also almost certainly a lie (claiming that they are mercenaries is a form of limited hang-out, masking the deeper truth, and Americans have been conditioned to believe it by by a mysterious sudden interest in the American media about mercenaries). Much more likely is that the contractor is an intelligence 'cut out' used to mask the real nature of the CIA or Special Forces agents who are assigned to appear to work for them. The reason they were in an unmarked, unarmored SUV is that they were working as spies involved in reconnaissance for the military operation that was already underway. They were probably pretending to be something that they were not, businessmen or, most likely, journalists (the American intelligence use of journalistic cover just makes the world more dangerous for real journalists), and were trying to find out something about the freedom fighters in Falluja.

Israeli Officials Boast They Have A Number To Call CNN To Pull Any Story They Don't Like
The Israeli government has written to the BBC accusing its Middle East correspondent, Orla Guerin, of anti-semitism and "total identification with the goals and methods of the Palestinian terror groups" over a report on a 16-year-old would-be suicide bomber last week.

In her report on Hussam Abdu last week, Guerin noted Israel's desire to gain a public relations advantage from the arrest. She described how the army "paraded the child in front of the international media", and observed that journalists had been prevented from asking him questions and therefore were left only with the army's account of the arrest. The Israeli minister also protested at Guerin's conclusion, as the youth was forced to stand forlornly alone at the checkpoint solely for the photographers, that "this is a picture that Israel wants the world to see".

A week earlier, when a 12-year-old boy, Abdullah Quran, was stopped while unwittingly carrying explosives at an army checkpoint, Israeli embassies called news editors to insist they cover the story and warn that failure to do so would be viewed as bias against Israel.

When several news organisations failed to report it, an Israeli newspaper called for their correspondents to be expelled, including Sky News' Emma Hurd and Stephen Farrell of the Times.

The government emailed the article around the world and reproduced it on official websites.

CNN sources say the network has bowed to considerable pressure on its editors. Israeli officials boast that they now have only to call a number at the network's headquarters in Atlanta to pull any story they do not like.

Explosion At 3rd Largest U.S. Oil Refinery, OPEC To Cut Output
Gasoline in New York rose to its highest price in at least 18 years after an explosion at BP Plc's Texas City refinery, the third biggest in the U.S., added to concern about shortages of the fuel ahead of the third quarter when demand peaks.

BP said an explosion caused a fire in a gasoline unit at its 470,000 barrel-a-day refinery, about 30 miles south of Houston. Fire crews are working to extinguish the blaze, said Annie Smith, BP's manager of public affairs for the Gulf Coast region in Texas. She said she didn't know what caused the blast.

``This refinery is a major supplier of gasoline,'' said Kurt Barrow, an oil and gas consultant at Purvin & Gertz Inc. in Singapore. ``If this unit is out of service for an extended period of time, say one week to a month, then that's bullish for gasoline. The second quarter is critical to gasoline production and inventory building ahead of the U.S. driving season.''

At their meeting in Vienna, ministers from the oil producers' cartel Opec have said they will go ahead with a planned oil output cut.
