Victory: Tomuschat resigns after UN Watch campaign Victory: Thanks to UN Watch, German law professor Christian Tomuschat, the anti-Israel and anti-American official heading the UN committee to enforce the Goldstone Report, has resigned. The biased UN probe is now headless, and is in disarray. This unprecedented resignation follows a global campaign by UN Watch that exposed Professor Tomuschat's egregious bias and breach of his obligation under international law to be objective and impartial: • UN Watch's team of researchers tracked down and translated Professor Tomuschat's German academic writings. We published a 30-page report revealing for the first time how he had frequently compared Israeli actions with the "barbarism" and "inferno" of World War II. This was reported worldwide, including in the Washington Times. • When Tomuschat delivered his report to the UN Human Rights Council in September -- calling for the investigation of former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni for alleged "war crimes" in Gaza -- UN Watch was the only group to take the floor and directly challenge Tomuschat for his bias. We demanded he come clean about his legal work for Yasser Arafat and biased statements about Israeli "state terrorism." Our challenge in the plenary stirred angry reactions from an embarassed Tomuschat as well as the council president himself. • When Tomuschat then appeared at a UN press conference, journalists followed up on UN Watch's campaign and challenged Tomuschat to defend himself. Finally, thousands of UN Watch ...

Anderson Cooper talks to Egyptian State TV's Shahira Amin Who's Just Resigned & Is Whistleblowing An extraordinary thing happened today. State TV -- there's a state-run television channel which has a news program. It's called Nile TV. And one of their main anchors resigned, saying she no longer wanted to be part of this disinformation, essentially. She joins us now. Her name is Shahira Amin. And also joining me is Heba Morayef with an organization, Human Rights Watch, which has also come under great pressure here. Shahira, why did you -- why did you give up your job as an anchor? SHAHIRA AMIN, FORMER NILE TV ANCHOR (via phone): Anderson, I've been with state television since 1989, and I worked with Nile TV since the very beginning. I've been very fortunate, because the freedom ceiling at Nile TV is slightly higher than on the other Arabic channels, because we have a different target audience. Nile TV broadcasts are in English and French, so the message is directed at the more elitist, or the educated members of society, not the illiterates. And as you know, in Egypt, where approximately 35 percent of the population is illiterate, television is one of the main sources of information. Now, I felt that, you know, I had done sensitive stories before, controversial -- what they call controversial stories. And I've been reprimanded on several occasions by state security for "tarnishing the country's image," quote unquote. Now, this time, there were very strict instructions that we had to follow the rules and never cross the so-called red line. And that meant that we focus ...
Riots In Tunisia After Ben Ali Resigns Transcript by () BY CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource global video news ***ysis from Newsy. Zine El Abidine Ben Ali has resigned in the wake of anti-government riots that have left at least 20 dead. The North-African nation is experiencing the worst unrest in decades -- over unemployment, food prices and alleged government corruption. (VIDEO FROM RT) Tunisia's prime minister has taken power as interim president -- but the riots continue -- as the country's youth demand reforms to address joblessness.

(VIDEO FROM YOUTUBE) Before he stepped aside President Ben Ali dismissed his entire government and ordered prices slashed on sugar, milk and bread. A reporter from France 24 says -- he also tried to appease protesters by promising to leave office when his term ended in 2014. CYRIL VANIER "He had been misled in his ***ysis of the social discontent in his country. That he's not going to stand again in 2014, which is very significant, because it means after 23 years of regime he is effectively announcing an end date for his presidency." But that wasn't good enough. Protests continued even after the announcement. Financial Times' Middle East editor says that was -- and is -- just the tip of the iceberg. "Given that there's been a harsh security crackdown it's possible that they're ...

Richard Nixon resigns - August 8, 1974 "Good evening: This is the 37th time I have spoken to you from this office, where so many decisions have been made that shape the history of this nation. Each time I have done so to discuss with you some matter that I believe affected the national interest. In all the decisions I have made in my public life I have always tried to do what was best for the nation. Throughout the long and difficult period of Watergate, I have felt it was my duty to persevere -- to make every possible effort to complete the term of office to which you elected me. In the past few days, however, it has become evident to me that I no longer have a strong enough political base in the Congress to justify continuing that effort. I would have preferred to carry through to the finish whatever the personal agony it would have involved, and my family unanimously urged me to do so. But the interests of the nation must always come before any personal considerations. From the discussions I have had with Congressional and other leaders I have concluded that because of the Watergate matter I might not have the support of the Congress that I would consider necessary to back the very difficult decisions and carry out the duties of this office in the way the interests of the nation will require. I have never been a quitter. To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. But as President, I must put the interests of America first. America needs a full-time President and a ...

Below here is a resignation letter from WR (If u want to know the whole story, go here @ www.pep.ph Dear Sir Gabby and Ma'am Charo, I have labored over the past week on what to do in the face of another setback in my relations with the management of the network. ABS-CBN has been my home for the last five years and five months and it has given me the greatest gift—the opportunity to reach out to people who have so little in life. In the process, I have come to realize that my gratitude to the network would be more meaningful if I considered the impact of my recent actions which has placed the station in a bad light. This is among the reasons, as I will explain in this letter, that I humbly request the management, to release me as a talent of the network. It is no secret that the program "Wowowee," for almost five and a half years, has been the core of my existence. The program gives me a sense of purpose because I make people happy and I give them hope that, despite their difficulties, they can make ...

Musharraf resigns More at Beleaguered president leaves but Pakistan's problems remain With opponents vowing to impeach him, Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf announced his resignation on Monday. According to the Guardian Newspaper Musharraf's problems are far from over. Though covered for his military coup in 1999 by a constitutional amendment, he has no such protection for the state of emergency he declared last fall, and is thus open to prosecution as long as he remains in Pakistan. There are also a lot of people-mainly Islamic militants-who want to kill him. According to the Hindu newspaper "Musharraf's exit is unlikely to undo Pakistani militants. " It goes on to state that the country's new civilian government has done "little to change Musharraf's policies in the troubled northwest regions bordering Afghanistan. The coalition government wants to retain close ties to Washington, and support the international fight against Islamic extremism."

General McChrystal Resigns The media world is abuzz today with the question of "Should Obama Fire General McChrystal?" This controversy has been stoked by an article that appeared in the most recent issue of 'Rolling Stone'. The Rolling Stone article inadvertently paints the picture of quagmire in Afghanistan. General Stanley McChrystal is currently the Commander of the International Security Assistance Force and Commander of the US Forces Afghanistan; jobs so daunting that McChrystal (according to many) feels the need to eat once a day and sleep only four hours a night. Here are some of the quotes in the article that have put McChrystal on the hotseat McChrystal's first meeting with Obama: According to sources familiar with the meeting, "McChrystal thought Obama looked "uncomfortable and intimidated" by the roomful of military brass. McChrystal's first one-on-one meeting with Obama: It was a 10-minute photo op," says an adviser to McChrystal. "Obama clearly didn't know anything about him, who he was. Here's the guy who's going to run his ***ing war, but he didn't seem very engaged. The Boss was pretty disappointed." One aide calls Jim Jones, a retired four-star general and veteran of the Cold War, a "clown" who remains "stuck in 1985." However, McChrystal's questionable antics long precede this event. General McChrystal played a key role in the Pat Tillman cover-up. Perhaps the most bothersome quote from this piece though is on Afghanistan's democratically-elected(???) President Hamid Karzai ...
