The Atlas For 9/15/10: Another Fraud Election Seems Headed Afghanistan's Way

What a surprise, a corrupt election seems to be a foot in Afghanistan yet again .
The sale of thousands of fake voter registration cards threatens the credibility of Afghanistan's forthcoming parliamentary elections.

Al Jazeera correspondent Sue Turton, reporting from Afghanistan, said sources told her the fake cards were printed in Pakistan and were being sold in Afghanistan for just over three US dollars apiece.

One of the agents selling the professionally made cards told Al Jazeera that his network has sold 1.5 million cards over the past three month, and his is just one network of many selling the fraudulent cards.

About five million people are expected to vote in Saturday's elections.

Stage 2 of France raising their retirement age pension plan is complete, and it really is not a happy sight at all for the proletariat.

Somalia's top government officials are bickering over ratifying a new Constitution .

About time UN :
UNITED NATIONS: UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday announced a new agency - UN Women - headed by former Chilean president Michelle Bachelet, to oversee all programmes aimed at promoting equality for women.

"Ms. Bachelet brings to this critical position a history of dynamic global leadership, highly honed political skills and uncommon ability to create consensus and focus among UN agencies and many partners in both the public and private sector," Ban said at the UN headquarters in New York.

This clown is still defending himself .
Embattled BP boss Tony Hayward has defended the firm's safety record as he was grilled by a committee of MPs over the implications of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

The outgoing BP chief executive said recent criticisms had not exposed "any fundamental weakness" in the company's operations in UK waters.

Mr Hayward spoke out as he was quizzed by the Energy and Climate Change Committee, which is investigating the implications of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill for offshore drilling in the UK.

OPEC really has to change its ways, but it will try to fight off the growing and justified threat of renewable energy.

And birthday shoutout to four countries Latin America countries, who all became independent from Spain's rule on this day in 1821: El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua.
