‘The whistleblowing website WikiLeaks has begun releasing thousands of secret documents from the U.S. military prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. The documents reveal the Bush and Obama administrations knowingly imprisoned more than 150 innocent men for years without charge. In dozens of cases, senior U.S. commanders were said to have concluded that there was no reason for the men to have been transferred to Guantánamo. Among the innocent prisoners were an 89-year-old Afghan villager and a 14-year-old boy who had been kidnapped. Some men were imprisoned at Guantánamo simply because they wore a certain model of Casio watches, which had been used as timers by al-Qaeda. The documents also reveal that the journalist Sami al-Hajj was held at Guantánamo for six years partly in order to be interrogated about his employer, the Al Jazeera news network. Al-Hajj’s file said he was sent to Guantánamo in order to “provide information on…the al-Jazeera news network’s training programme, telecommunications equipment, and news gathering operations in Chechnya, Kosovo and Afghanistan.”’
23,000 Bunnies Killed For Easter Hunt.
Organizers of the “Great Easter Bunny Hunt” in New Zealand estimate that this year’s kill is over 23,000 bunnies.
The Great Easter Bunny Hunt is an annual event that raises money for multiple charities in the region and is considered “pest control” for farmers. Witnesses say it’s a “party atmosphere” where inexperienced hunters travel around blasting away at anything that moves.
They say over 23,000 bunnies were killed but many more were injured and hide where they eventually die.
The event involves 47 teams of 12 hunters each. The team that kills the most “Easter bunnies” is awarded $2,600 in prize money.
And I thought dying eggs was a bad Easter tradition. Murdering the Easter Bunny for prize money is the ultimate low.
‘The investigation, if it can properly be so called, of the unsolved murder of the former high ranking Pentagon official and presidential advisor John P. Wheeler III, who was also an expert on chemical and biological weapons, may be taking a turn in the direction of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
Wheeler, 67, a West Point grad, was beaten and thrown into a garbage dumpster. His body was discovered in a Wilmington, Del. landfill last New Year’s weekend. Both police detectives and news commentators described it as “an apparent hit,” but little else was ever learned, and no suspects have surfaced.
There was great speculation by many at the time that Wheeler had begun to blow the whistle on the mysterious bird and fish deaths in Arkansas and Texas, and was about to expose the facts tying this to the chemtrails seen in our skies over the past decade.’
Korean Mass Graves May Soon Leak.
After burying 9.7 million animals alive this winter, South Korea could be facing a seriously karmic moment.
The mass graves holding the corpses of 9.7 million pigs, chickens, and cow may begin leaking the decomposition fluids of the dead animals into the country’s drinking water. Contaminated drinking water could spark a very serious clean water shortage sending the country into crisis.
The Korean government buried 9.7 million animals alive this past winter in an effort to stem the spread of foot-and-mouth disease. The killings required 4,000 mass graves to be dug and have already cost the Korean government $2.8 million. Experts fear that a water contamination would cost the government even more and require many in the nation to purchase bottled water exclusively.
One more reason not to bury 9.7 millions animals alive I guess. I can’t believe no one thought about this before they started.

Navy Training Blows Up Dolphins.
The US navy is defending a training exercise that killed a pod of dolphins with an underwater explosive device off the coast of San Diego.
A Navy spokesperson told press that an underwater explosive test resulted in the accidental deaths of at least four dolphins and possibly more. Navy personnel had cleared the area of sea mammals before initiating a 15 minute countdown. At the ten minute mark, a pod of dolphins swam into the blast zone and the Navy commander in charge determined that it would be safer for Navy personnel to detonate the device rather than initiate deactivation.
The bodies of three dolphins were recovered at the site while a forth washed up on a nearby beach. At least four dolphins are dead while the death toll for all other nearby sea life is unknown.
The military either needs to figure out how they can do pointless tests without hurting anyone or they need to stop doing the pointless tests altogether.
PepsiCo is set to launch a line of “next generation” social vending machines that will allow customers to connect with friends and gift them drinks with the push of a touchscreen button.
A press release explains:
Using digital technology, PepsiCo’s Social Vending System enables any user to gift a friend by selecting a beverage and entering the recipient’s name, mobile number and a personalized text message…The gift is delivered with a system code and instructions to redeem it at any PepsiCo Social Vending system.
Cooler still is the “Random Acts of Refreshment” feature, which allows customers to purchase drinks for strangers around the world. “[A] consumer could send a symbol of encouragement someone in a city that has experienced challenging weather, or a congratulatory beverage to a student at a university that just won a championship,” PepsiCo says.
I’d like to buy the world… a Pepsi?
