    U.N.'s Blix Says Iraq Smuggled Arms-Related Goods Tue January 14, 2003 08:29 AM ET LONDON (Reuters) - Chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix has said his teams in Iraq have uncovered weapons-related smuggling but it was unclear if the goods were linked to weapons of mass destruction. Currency traders said the dollar slipped briefly on the report, coming close to a three-year low against the euro and testing the day's low against the safe-haven Swiss franc. "We have found several cases where it is clear that Iraq has imported weapons-related material in violation of the prohibitions of the Security Council,"...

    US accused of persistent rights violations at Camp X-Ray By Andrew Buncombe in Washington 11 January 2003 The Bush administration was accused of violating human rights afforded by the Geneva conventions yesterday by persistently refusing to allow 600 prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay access to lawyers, the courts or relatives. The British government was also criticised for failing to protect the rights of the eight Britons among the prisoners. A year after the Pentagon first began transferring al-Qa'ida and Taliban suspects to the US naval base on the south-east tip of Cuba, human rights campaigners and lawyers have accused...

    Capitol Hill ( - The first full day on the job for the first woman ever to lead her political party in the U.S. House of Representatives began under a cloud Friday over allegations of campaign fundraising violations by California Democrat Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi, who voted in favor of the McCain-Feingold bill to change the nation's campaign finance laws, is the subject of a formal complaint with the Federal Elections Commission, and other election law experts claim the new House minority leader flat out broke the law in her pursuit of campaign cash for her fellow House Democrats. It's also...

A "liberal Democrat" judge sided with Reno and banned the organization's poll watchers from trying to curb Florida's notorious election fraud. Miami-Dade Judge Eleanor...

    What is this thing called sovereignty? It is the supreme power of a state by which it rules over its land and its citizenry. Well, here we are in the 21st century, having witnessed every form of government that humanity's imagination has been capable of conceiving. And still we speak of sovereignty, but do we know of what we speak? Sovereignty - that which gives to kings and emperors the right to tell their subjects what to do and how to arrange their affairs. Sovereignty - that which permits nations to tell other nations to remain behind certain borders and...

    Some of you think that the United States should not interfere in the foreign affairs of other nations, that "we should mind our own business," as some put it. And I have been told - by apparently intelligent people - that the United States has no right to tell Castro how to run his country. Both of these are erroneous and ill-formed opinions. They are utter nonsense. In the first place the United States never minds its own business. The United States goes into the whole world to buy and sell, to obtain the raw materials and petroleum it needs...

    The German government, introducing its sixth human rights report here Friday, accused the Islamic Republic of Iran of "massive human rights violations". The report said, "While Iran has made progress (on human rights issues), namely strengthening democracy, curtailing suppression of information and the relative improvements of women's positions in the public, Iran continues its massive human rights violations." It added, "Arbitrary arrests, abuses and torture in police detention centers and prisons and violations of freedom of expression are frequent." The report accused Iran's judiciary of "failing to comply with the rule of law and misusing its powers for political reasons"....
