Documents Reveal How Paulson Forced Banks To Take TARP Cash

The first 1-pager is Paulson's talking points for the bank. It basically confirms that he put a gun to all their heads. It says they must agree to take their cash, and that if they protested, then each bank's regulator would force them to take it anyway. The next document is perhaps even more mindblowing. It's the one-page agreement whereby

The Over-Under On Pelosi

The Over-Under On Pelosi

I wrote earlier today that it is hard to see how Nancy Pelosi can retain her post as Speaker of the House after accusing the CIA (falsely, nearly everyone agrees) of "lying" to her and "misleading the Congress." Hence this poll: how long can she hang on?





How many days before Nancy Pelosi resigns as Speaker of the House?
0-30
31-60
61-90
90-120
Don't get excited, she'll ride it out.

Activist Annie Leonard has an online hit with 'The Story of Stuff,' a 20-minute film used in thousands of schools to explain America's dangerous obsession with material things — but some critics say it's a misleading diatribe against capitalism.

Burmese Activist Charged After Visit By "Wretched American" [Foreign Affairs]

Aung San Suu Kyi, Burmese pro-democracy leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, was charged today with violating the terms of her house arrest after an American man snuck into her house uninvited.

Suu Kyi is the daughter of Aung San, a revolutionary who helped Burma win its independence from Britain ("Burma" is the name used by opposition groups to refer to the country now officially known as Myanmar). She has spent 13 of the last 19 years in some form of custody, due to her pro-democracy activism and helped found the National League for Democracy, which won in a landslide in Burma's 1990 general election (the ruling military junta nullified the results). Suu Kyi, who was voted Prime Minister, was already under house arrest at the time, for giving speeches and campaigning for democracy after a ban on political gatherings. Her continued nonviolent campaigning won her the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991.

The latest change in Suu Kyi's status comes as a result of the American John William Yettaw, who reportedly swam across a lake, snuck into Suu Kyi's home, and stayed there for two days. He had tried to visit her once before, in 2008; both times, she told him to leave, but this time he refused. Yettaw's stepson says he "is harmless and not politically motivated in any way." No one knows what does motivate him, but Suu Kyi's lawyer Kyi Win doesn't much care. "Everyone is very angry with this wretched American. He is the cause of all these problems," he said. "He's a fool."

Burma's junta, which took power in 1988 after a bloody uprising, says that by allowing Yettaw's visit Suu Kyi violated Article 22 of the Law Safeguarding the State from the Danger of Subversionists (aka Scary Totalitarian Rule No. 1). The National League for Democracy, however, says she has violated no law. Many speculate that Yettaw's intrusion is merely an excuse for the junta to extend this particular round of detention for Suu Kyi, which began in 2003. Sein Win, Prime Minister of Burma's opposition government-in-exile, said, "It is nothing more than a political ploy to hoodwink the international community so that it can keep (Suu Kyi) under lock and key while the military maneuvers its way to election victory on 2010."

White House Czar Declares End to 'War on Drugs'

The Obama administration's new drug czar says he wants to banish the idea that the U.S. is fighting "a war on drugs," a move that would underscore a shift favoring treatment over incarceration. In his first interview since being confirmed to head the White House ONDCP, Gil Kerlikowske said the bellicose analogy was a barrier to dealing with abuse.

Pelosi Accuses CIA of Lying to Her About Waterboarding

Obviously, Nancy Pelosi can't continue to stick to her story that she was "never told" that the CIA was using waterboarding on a few detained terrorists, now that documents have been released showing that she was briefed on it.



So now she says the CIA lied to her.



House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today accused the CIA of "misleading" her on the use of harsh interrogation techniques in the fall of 2002, acknowledging for the first time publicly she knew alleged terrorist detainees were subjected to waterboarding more than six years ago.



Pelosi called for the CIA to release detailed portions of her own September 2002 briefing about interrogation techniques, saying that at that time she was told the CIA was not waterboarding detainees. After weeks of sticking to prior statements that she then was never "briefed" about waterboarding's use, Pelosi today said her top security adviser was part of a briefing in February 2003 in which he learned interrogators were waterboarding terrorists.



Is anyone out there buying her spin?
