The hideous practices at Abu Ghraib are not a question of mistakes, poor training or inadequate discipline. They are criminal acts that flow inevitably from a greater crime, the conspiracy to invade and conquer Iraq.

Howard Stern Blows 'Air America' Away, White House Trembles
The long-sought liberal talk radio hero isn't Air America's Al Franken, but that walking, talking wedge issue, Howard Stern.

Meanwhile, Stern's revamped website looks more like Mother Jones magazine than Maxim: It features articles about the administration's trade violations in Burma and includes a link to the contributions page of the John Kerry for President site. Indeed, Stern has become an ardent Kerry advocate. "I call on all fans of the show to vote against Bush," he said on a recent broadcast. "We're going to deliver the White House to John Kerry."

Some might dismiss this as bluster, but Stern's words should send a shiver up Karl Rove's spine. Stern has a record of successful election-year activism; political observers in New York and New Jersey remember how his on-air endorsements delivered key votes to George Pataki and Christine Todd Whitman in past gubernatorial races.

Editor-In-Chief Of U.S.-Funded Iraq Newspaper Quits: "We Are Being Suffocated."
The head of a U.S.-funded Iraqi newspaper quit and said Monday he was taking almost his entire staff with him because of American interference in the publication.

On a front-page editorial of the Al-Sabah newspaper, editor-in-chief Ismail Zayer said he and his staff were ''celebrating the end of a nightmare we have suffered from for months ... We want independence. They (the Americans) refuse.''

Al-Sabah was set up by U.S. officials with funding from the Pentagon soon after the fall of Saddam Hussein last year. Since its first issue in July, many Iraqis have considered it the mouthpiece of the U.S.-led coalition, along with the U.S.-funded television station Al-Iraqiya.

Zayer said almost the entire staff left the paper along with him and that they were launching a new paper called Al-Sabah Al-Jedid (''The New Morning''), which would begin publishing Tuesday.

Zayer had sought to break Al-Sabah away from the Iraqi Media Network, which groups the paper, Al-Iraqiya and a number of radio station and is run by Harris Inc., a Florida-based communications company that won a $96 million Pentagon contract in January to develop the media.

''We had a project to create a free media in Iraq,'' Zayer said of the founding of Al-Sabah. ''They are trying to control us. We are being suffocated.''

Sinclair Broadcasting's David Smith Busted In Prostitution Sting
[THIS IS THE GUY WHO BANNED THE 'NIGHTLINE' BROADCAST OF K.I.A. SOLDIERS IN 8 CITIES LAST NIGHT, AND WROTE A LETTER DEFENDING HIS DECISION TO SEN. JOHN MCCAIN.]

David Deniston Smith, president and chief executive officer of Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc., was charged with committing an unnatural and perverted sex act in a company-owned Mercedes. He was arrested in an undercover sting a Read and St. Paul streets, a downtown corner frequented by prostitutes.

Police said Mary DiPaulo, 31, ran across the street to a 1992 Mercedes, registered to Sinclair, and got in on the passenger side. Police followed the car onto the Jones Falls Expressway, where they said they witnessed the two engage in oral sex while Smith drove north.

Broadcaster Pulls Plug On "Nightline" Listing of Dead U.S. Soldiers
ABC's "Nightline" will devote its entire episode today to host Ted Koppel reading the names and showing the photos of U.S. military personnel killed in action in Iraq - more than 500 men and women.

Producer Leroy Sievers says the episode, "The Fallen," is modeled after the famous 1969 issue of Life magazine showing the names and faces of U.S. soldiers killed in one week in Vietnam. But drawing that parallel has proved to be controversial.

Eight ABC affiliates owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, including one in St. Louis, announced Thursday they will not broadcast today's "Nightline," saying, "The action appears to be motivated by a political agenda designed to undermine the efforts of the United States in Iraq."

A majority of the American public still believes Iraq was closely tied to the al-Qaeda terrorist group and had WMD stocks or programs before U.S. troops invaded the country 13 months ago.
