Exorcist worried about anti-witchcraft law
BBC | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Gus told me he is often asked to help people who believe they are victims of black magic, known in Indonesia as Santet... I asked Gus if he ever performed black magic spells. 'I prefer to use my powers to heal people,' he answered evasively... In recent years, people suspected of dealing in black magic have become the targets of vigilante-style attacks. Some have even been killed. The Indonesian Government is so worried about the problem it is drafting a bill to ban the practice of black magic."

Terror suspect confesses to anthrax plot
Independent | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A Briton held in Guantanamo Bay has claimed that he took part in an al-Qa'ida plot to attack the House of Commons with anthrax in an attempt to kill Tony Blair. The confession by Moazzam Begg, 35, one of nine Britons being held at the US base in Cuba, was disclosed to The Independent on Sunday by his lawyer, who says it was obtained under duress and is completely implausible... 'Moazzam has agreed to plead guilty to this absurd story that allegedly he was part of an al-Qa'ida plot to get a drone - an unmanned aircraft - and fly it from Suffolk over London to drop anthrax over the House of Commons.'"

Finnish judge a pathetic liar
Australian Broadcasting | Submitted by: Juan Motaim
"A Finnish judge who heard four criminal cases while drunk insisted the breath test was flawed because she was too busy to brush her teeth that morning. During a hearing in March, Judge Leena Pettinen's blood alcohol content was three times the legal driving limit, Finland's Attorney-General said. The judge said she hosted a party the night before, drinking 'several glasses' of vodka punch, cognac, wine and beer... 'The breathalyser test result was affected by the alcohol that was left in my mouth and which I did not have time to remove in the morning rush by brushing my teeth,' she said."

Bush developing mini-nukes
observer.guardian.co.uk | Submitted by: BLKhobb
"The United States is embarking on a multimillion-dollar expansion of its nuclear arsenal, prompting fears it may lead the world into a new arms race. The Bush administration is pushing ahead with the development of a new generation of weapons, dubbed 'mini-nukes,' that use nuclear warheads to penetrate underground bunkers. Last week, it gave a quiet yet final go-ahead to a controversial research project into the bunker-buster. The move effectively ends a 10-year ban on research into 'low-yield' nuclear weapons... [Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher objected] 'Russia has already indicated that it will develop new "tactical" weapons in response and no one doubts our enemies will follow suit.'"

Deadly new ammo tested on live Iraqis
armytimes.com | Submitted by: wingnut
"In a brief but intense firefight, [Ben Thomas] hit one of the attackers with a single shot from his M4 carbine at a distance he estimates was 100 to 110 yards. He hit the man in the buttocks, a wound that typically is not fatal. But this round appeared to kill the assailant instantly. 'It entered his butt and completely destroyed everything in the lower left section of his stomach ... everything was torn apart,' Thomas said. Thomas, a security consultant with a private company contracted by the government, recorded the first known enemy kill using a new - and controversial - bullet. The bullet is so controversial that if Thomas, a former SEAL, had been on active duty, he would have been court-martialed for using it. The ammunition is 'nonstandard' and hasn't passed the military's approval process... The frangible APLP ammo will bore through steel and other hard targets but will not pass through a human torso, an eight-inch-thick block of artistís clay or even several layers of drywall. Instead of passing through a body, it shatters, creating 'untreatable wounds.'"

RIAA, MPAA seeking antitrust exemptions
Register | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Just weeks after an antitrust suit was filed against the RIAA by webcasters, the music labels' lobby group, is, along with Hollywood, seeking a permanent exemption from similar litigation. The proposal seeks to extend the exemption to anything covering mechanical copyright: a sweeping extension of the copyright cartel's immunity. It's buried away in a piece of legislation co-sponsored by Senator Orrin Hatch called the EnFORCE Act, or the Enhancing Federal Obscenity Reporting and Copyright Enforcement Act of 2003... Hatch said the big studios and major record labels need the exemption because of 'market realities.'"
