News briefs

- "'Documents From the US Espionage Den' is a legendary series of Iranian books containing classified US documents that were found in the American Embassy in Tehran when it was taken over by revolutionaries." The essential Memory Hole reports.

- The Chicago Reader documents Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz's desperate attempts to dump Norman Finkelstein from his academic institution. Upon the release of Finkelstein's new book this month, Beyond Chutzpah, he's released a statement that outlines the charges against Dershowitz, the so-called human rights defender's slander against his Holocaust surviving mother and attempts to get his book banned. Now we know where his Australian sidekick gets all his brilliant ideas. Of course, Dershowitz failed miserably in his efforts. Finkelstein has been endorsed by Raul Hilberg, dean of the Holocaust historians.

- Today is World Blog Day, a time for bloggers to recommend blogs other readers may never have heard of. My suggestion are blogs from Bangladesh, a part of the world rarely examined in the West.

- The Scotsman reports: "A former Scottish police chief has given lawyers a signed statement claiming that key evidence in the Lockerbie bombing trial was fabricated. The retired officer - of assistant chief constable rank or higher - has testified that the CIA planted the tiny fragment of circuit board crucial in convicting a Libyan for the 1989 mass murder of 270 people."

The report on Lockerbie is highly significant. Here's William Blum, State Department apostate, writing in 2001 on a similar theme.
Who are our friends; who are our enemies; and what principles do our intelligence services operate by?

...and what principles do our intelligence services operate by? If any.

Thanks for the link, Evan. Blum is invaluable, always.

It's amazing - actually, not that surprising - that the Lockerbie information has been so effectively kept out of the public domain.
