This Sunday the WH Limo tanks up for President Obama to make the rounds of the all major talkies! Of course there will be some dissenters in there, too, like MICHAEL "Cut Medicare" STEELE on Face the Bob, LINDSEY GRAHAM and NEWT "Contract ON America" GINGRICH on Meet the David and MITCH MCCONNELL on State of the King, all good brick targets I might add. Interestingly, Obama will not grace the set of FAKE NEWS SUNDAY, where ACORN chief executive BERTHA LEWIS will go it alone against the Angry White Men. The funniest exchanges this week will be the tag team of MATALIN & CARVILLE on State of the King and ROBERT REICH & ED GILLESPIE on the GEORGE WILL Roundtable. Of course there will be much ado about what Obama said or didn't say so they can ignore other stories like the DOJ investigating the CIA over "alleged" torture. See Glenn Greenwald at Salon CIA Directors conclude CIA shouldn't be investigated for murder: "In a truly shocking development being treated as major news, seven former CIA Directors -- including all three who served under George W. Bush -- jointly concluded that the CIA should not be criminally investigated for torture deaths, and they have written a letter to President Obama (.pdf) expressing that view." Greenwald adds an UPDATE! "In other breaking news, Erik Prince announces that he believes criminal prosecutions of Blackwater are unwarranted; Wall Street CEOs -- past and present -- conclude that an investigation of fraud and abuse among investment banks would serve no real purpose; Alberto Gonzales reveals his opposition to any proceedings against DOJ lawyers who acted in bad faith; police unions announce that the problem of brutality is overstated and there's no need for added oversight; medical doctors agree that malpractice lawsuits need to be limited; and a poll of felons currently in prison reveal that 99% of them believe that the country would have been better off if it had just let bygones be bygones and decided not to proceed with prosecutions in their particular case." As usual some of the real stories of the week are on the BTV Alerts below. Look for interviews with DANIEL ELLSBERG on Democracy Now and AntiWar Radio while Ring of Fire has THOMAS FRANK discussing the "deep end" of the Grand Old Party. The Brick TeeVee crew congratulates the Akron Aeros (CLE Indians Double A farmclub) for winning the 2009 Eastern League Championship, their third title since 2003! Go Aeros! Now if only SOME of these guys can make it to the parent club and help the beleaguered Tribe.

IRAQ: 4,344 Military Dead as of Sept 19, 2009
AFGHANISTAN: 838 Military Dead as of Sept 17, 2009
Dear readers,
We have recovered the data for military fatalities for both the Iraq (OIF) and Afghanistan (OEF) sites. We still have a ways to go until both sites return to full functionality, but with a little luck everything should be back to normal soon. I want to personally thank all of you who have donated and encourage others who find this site beneficial to make a modest contribution to iCasualties to help defray the cost of necessary server upgrades and daily operations. I also owe a special thanks to Mr. Ellis and Mr. Stasz for their assistance in collecting data. - Michael White, DONATE NOW VIA PAYPAL
