Top censored stories of 2007 – the undermining of the Constitution

Once again Project Censored has carved out its list of top stories the mainstream media missed, and topping the list are issues relating to Bush’s push for military rule, the loss of habeas corpus, a move toward martial law in the United States, and much, much more. To read the details of each item on the list, click here. We’ve pasted below the headlines of the stories for your review. However, for fans of Naomi Wolf‘s End of America, there are few key stories on this list that echo her outline for how open societies have been closed down by authoritarian governments. They are, in reverse order, the following: # 20 Terror Act Against Animal Activists # 14 Impunity for US War Criminals # 7 Behind Blackwater Inc. # 2 Bush Moves Toward Martial Law # 1 No Habeas Corpus for “Any Person” It is any wonder that End of America remains on The New York Times bestseller list? When stories like these go unreported, it’s our democracy that suffers the most, and it is finding ways to repair that democracy that is fueling the interest in Naomi’s book, not simply the fear of it being taken away. Here are all 25 stories. Check out each one, and then go and support those journalists and independent media in their work to fulfill the true mission of journalism. # 1 No Habeas Corpus for “Any Person” # 2 Bush Moves Toward Martial Law # 3 AFRICOM: US Military Control of Africa’s Resources # 4 Frenzy of Increasingly Destructive Trade Agreements # 5 Human Traffic Builds US Embassy in Iraq # 6 Operation FALCON Raids # 7 Behind Blackwater Inc. # 8 KIA: The US Neoliberal Invasion of India # 9 Privatization of America’s Infrastructure # 10 Vulture Funds Threaten Poor Nations’ Debt Relief # 11 The Scam of “Reconstruction” in Afghanistan # 12 Another Massacre in Haiti by UN Troops # 13 Immigrant Roundups to Gain Cheap Labor for US Corporate Giants # 14 Impunity for US War Criminals # 15 Toxic Exposure Can Be Transmitted to Future Generations on a “Second Genetic Code” # 16 No Hard Evidence Connecting Bin Laden to 9/11 # 17 Drinking Water Contaminated by Military and Corporations # 18 Mexico’s Stolen Election # 19 People’s Movement Challenges Neoliberal Agenda (Free Trade through Central and South America) # 20 Terror Act Against Animal Activists # 21 US Seeks WTO Immunity for Illegal Farm Payments # 22 North Invades Mexico # 23 Feinstein’s Conflict of Interest in Iraq # 24 Media Misquotes Threat From Iran’s President # 25 Who Will Profit from Native Energy?
