WARNING: Graphic and disturbing photos between 38:40 and 40:45.
U.S. Army Ranger John Needham, who was awarded two purple hearts and three medals for heroism, wrote to military authorities in 2007 reporting war crimes that he witnessed being committed by his own command and fellow soldiers in Al Doura, Iraq. His charges were supported by atrocity photos which, in the public interest, are now released in this video. John paid a terrible price for his opposition to these acts. His story is tragic.
CBS reported obtaining an Army document from the Criminal Investigation Command suggestive of an investigation into these war crimes allegations. The Army's conclusion was that the "offense of War Crimes did not occur." However, CBS also stated that the report was “redacted and incomplete; 111 pages were withheld.”
This video is placed with the context of Vice President, Dick Cheney, insistence that this nation's efforts "must go to the dark side;" which included ignoring the Geneva Conventions.
John's story is told, here, by his father, Michael Needham. It is produced in the spirit of the public interest and towards promoting justice and the rule of law.
Any Lady Gaga parody is good in my books, but in fact it seems she's an extremely easy target for Weird Al in this mockery of her weirdness and clear split-personality in front of and behind the cameras and stage.
Two weeks after a devastating earthquake struck Haiti, spreading fear and misery across an already fragile nation.rnrnAfter a relatively slow start, US forces appear to be taking the lead in organising international aid efforts on the ground.rnrnBut there is a long way to go. Residents outside the capital complain they have been forgotten.rnrnIn rural towns and villages survivors have largely been left to fend for themselves. Al Jazeera's Sebastian Walker reports from Port Au Prince, the capital.
If you needed any more assurance the growing ClimateGate scandal is far more significant than Americaâ€™s media has been portraying, you got it Tuesday night from Comedy Centralâ€™s Jon Stewart.rnrnSomewhat surprisingly, â€œThe Daily Showâ€ host in his opening sketch tore apart the scientists involved in sending the obtained e-mail messages for showing â€œa clear effort to raise fears about global warming, and hide evidence against it.â€rnrnStewart even mocked the man responsible for spreading more fear on this subject than anyone on the planet:rnrn Poor Al Gore. Global warming completely debunked via the very Internet you invented. OH. OH the irony.
WeAreChange NYC Danny, Matt and Heather confronted Al Gore in NYC during his recent book signing. Along with the wave of WeAreChange chapters all around the country confronting this con man, we are making a strong stance against liars using global warming to gain more power and control away from the people.

"I want itï»¿ that way" by the Backstreet Boys is parodied by the excellent Weird Al Yankovic "Ebay" song - synched to the videoclip. I must admit Ebay is very much the way he describes it in the song. Don't take it too seriously; just enjoy! btw I actually love 'Star Wars'.
