Gee: split hairs much (I mean CSIS, Alison, not you)? They're right about when that particular episode of sleep-deprivation occurred, but they have to have known that all kinds of other things had been done to Khadr before they sat down to prod him for "intelligence." From the notes he kept, I'd say that Gould  (DFAIT, 2004 visit) is clueless if presumptuous.

Quote from: fern hill
Catholics for Sense. This is actually quite a laudable campaign.

I gotta agree with the objective of these people fh, but am not sure that is the way-to-go.

I think it was a Randolph Scott movie, perhaps the one where he builds the CPR that, when the railroad builders (workers) complain about lawlessness are advised by Scott to get together and elect themselves a sheriff.

That sounds suspiciously like:
Quote
Jon O’Brien, president of Catholics for Choice, called on Catholics to contact their bishop and tell them that the ban must end. In their calls and e-mails, Catholics should press their bishops to contact the Vatican, explain the will of Catholics worldwide and call for an end to the ban on contraception.

Canada, even building the CPR, was not the USA = nor is the Catholic Church a democracy. It is ruled by what it sees as the word, direction and directives of God. I would suggest a better front to advance upon would be theological one. I do not believe that banning contraception is a mandate handed down by any diety, but is a rationlization developed for reasons well documented (in BnR as well as man other places).

Methinks that appealing to the structure of the Church on the grounds that they are undemocract, that the Holy Roman Catholic does not have the policies and procedures that would get those in decisions making positions elected, is a sure path to failure.

If they want to be Anglicians that option is open .... appealing to the populist sympathies in the hierarchy ain't gonna get no one, nowhere.
"It is also a good rule not to put overmuch confidence in the observational results that are put forward until they are confirmed by theory." -- Arthur Stanley Eddington

Alison, can you tell how the G&M got those docs?

Wow. Just wow. I was going to say "those slimy bastards," but it turns out we have some slimy bitches as well.

I have no country to fight for; my country is the earth, and I am a citizen of the world.

Skdadl : Left you a response at the Beav.
From this G&M article back in June, I'm guessing they got them from Abdelrazik's lawyers who could have petitioned for them for Abdelrazik's suit.

Be over right away, but I gotta read that hot post from mattt too.   ;)

So many ironies, Alison -- Syria and Sudan are BushCo's BFFs? And this comes out a week after we hear that the chief prosecutor for the ICC is going to indict the president of Sudan on genocide charges?

The idea/impulse for this blog post came from fern hill, and she gets the last word on it.  Other pro-choice bloggers are invited to participate in getting information out about this issue.

What the F****** F*** …  are the furious fundamentalists, fetus fetishists and/or far-right fanatics doing nowadays in the Excited States of America?

My contribution to the blog-burst: F*ck the Debate. Note that I spared Scott's sensitivities in the title.  :twisted:
