ABC News has retracted.


"An earlier ABC News broadcast report suggested that a Jim Holmes of a Colorado Tea Party organization might be the suspect, but that report was incorrect. Several other local residents with similar names were also contacted via social media by members of the public who mistook them for the suspect".

A woman takes pictures of her abortion...

My intention in documenting and sharing my abortion is to demystify the sensationalist images propagated by the religious and political right on this matter. The perverse use of lifeless fetus photographs are a propaganda tool in the prolife/prochoice debate in which women and their bodies are used as pawns to push a cultural, political, and religious agenda in the United States.

At 6 weeks of pregnancy, my abortion looked very different than the images I saw when I entered the clinic that day.

This is my abortion.

To learn more about this project, please read my oped for The Guardian.

Not one of those links claims Awlaki's son was with al-Banna and & none cited the Obama admin.

1) The hidden OP was headlined thus: "Obama's Administration Killed a 16-Year-Old American and Didn't Say Anything About It"
All of your links come from Yemeni sources. Do you have a link from the Obama admin

2) There were several strikes that night. One of your links says 5 strikes one of which killed al-Banna but no mention that Awlaki's son was killed in the same strike, one of your links says 27 killed but no mention of the number of strikes and again no mention that Awlaki's son was with al-Banna. In fact, the source cited for al-Banna's death and the source for Alwaki's son's death are two different people. The 1st is a Yemeni "official"; the 2nd a "tribal leader." The 3rd link says 3 strikes and doesn't mention al-Banna at all.

President Correa on Assange in a recent interview.

(Also a link to my old thread with other updates from Ecuador, etc. because it won't kick to the first page anymore.http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002835642)

In Rio de Janeiro, in exclusive interview to Página/12 (Argentina), Carta Maior (Brazil), and La Jornada de México (México):

"We have not a vassal's soul":

“Assange wants to go to Ecuador to continue fulfilling his mission for freedom of expression without limits, because our country is a peaceful territory committed to justice and truth”

Correa also dismissed today that the Assange asylum-situation would cause tensions with the UK. He added:

"It is the last we would wish, but we are not going to ask permission to no country for us to take our sovereign decisions"
If any in Ecuador “would have done to anyone a hundredth part of what they have done to Assange we would be called despots and oppressors"

And this is the full paragraph with President Rafael Correa's statements in Rio de Janeiro, referred to the asylum requested by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. President Correa explains, "What the analysis of the asylum application consists of":

"Ecuador defends the right to life, one has to see if there is danger of death. Ecuador supports the right to due process, must see if so has been the case. Ecuador rejects the persecution of a political nature attacking the political rights of individuals. Must see if there is any breach or violation in this regard. That is the analysis"
