"Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union," by David Swanson is due in stores September 1st, but the publisher has it now and you can get it straight from Seven Stories Press.
An American military jury has found a US army officer guilty of the murder of an Iraqi detainee.
The jury in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, also convicted 1st Lt Michael Behenna of assaulting Ali Mansour Mohammed near Baiji, north of Baghdad, last May.
Behenna had argued that he was defending himself when he fatally shot Mr Mohammed during an interrogation.
He was found not guilty of the more serious offence of premeditated murder, the Associated Press reported.
The defence argued that Behenna had only intended to interrogate Mr Mohammed about a roadside bomb which had killed two members of his platoon.
Defence attorney Jack Zimmerman said Behenna was suffering from acute stress disorder at the time, and had acted in self defence when Mr Mohammed had reached for a gun.

BILLINGS - Two different organizations got together Saturday to illicit honks and shouts in support and opposition on Grand Avenue Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. They were calling for the immediate end to the war in Iraq.
The people we talked to feel very strongly that the country is heading in a bad direction due to our current foreign policy and occupation of Iraq. They want to raise awareness in the community and prompt people to voice their concern about the war.
