frtt vef The Times m m.a. lesa eftirfarandi:

" teacher faces up to 40 years in jail for exposing her pupils to online pornography, amid an outcry from computer experts that she is the innocent victim of malicious software.

In a case that has become a cause clbre in the online world, where millions of rogue websites appear unsolicited on computer screens every day, Julie Amero is gathering a network of supporters who claim that she has been wrongly convicted over an incident she says has destroyed her life.

Amero, a supply teacher in the small Connecticut town of Windham, was convicted last month for exposing her class of 12-year-olds to graphic sexual images on the classroom computer. She contends the images were inadvertently thrust onto the screen by malicious software that she was powerless to stop. Im scared, said Amero, 40. Im just beside myself over something I didnt do. "

"In October 2004 Amero was assigned to a seventh-grade class at Kelly Middle School in Norwich, a city of about 37,000. The regular teacher had logged on that morning. Amero says that before the class started, she sent a quick e-mail to her husband, and then went to the lavatory. She returned to find the permanent teacher gone and two students viewing a hairstyle site.

Shortly afterwards, she says, pornographic advertisements flooded the screen. She says she tried to click them off, but they kept popping up, and the barrage lasted all day. She tried to stop the students looking at the screen, but several saw sexually explicit photographs. It was school policy not to turn off computers.

Two days later she was suspended and was then arrested and charged with risk of causing injury to a minor. She rejected a plea-bargain deal that would have kept her out of jail. At her three-day trial, prosecutors argued that Amero was actively searching the web for pornography during the class.

Prosecutors relied heavily on testimony from a computer crimes police officer, Mark Lounsbury, who admitted that the software used to analyse the computer could not distinguish between mouse clicks and automatic redirects caused by malicious software. Herb Horner, a defence witness and computer expert, said that the children had visited an innocent hairstyle website and were then redirected to another site with pornographic links. It can happen to anybody, Mr Horner said.

Crucially to Ameros case, the school has admitted that the computer had no firewall because it had not paid the bill. "

"But Mark Steinmetz, who served on the jury, insists that Amero is guilty. I would not want my child in her class. All she had to do was throw a coat over it or unplug it. She says she panicked and did not know how to switch off the computer.

Scott Fain, the school principal, said that Amero was the only teacher to report a problem with the computer. Weve never had a problem with pop-ups before or since.

Sentencing was adjourned yesterday until March 29. The maximum sentence is 40 years, although lawyers suggest that an 18-month jail term is possible. Amero and her husband have opened a blog, julieamer. blogspot.com, asking for contributions to her defence fund so that she can appeal.

She wrote: One day you have the world on a string and the next day the string is cut and you are left falling into an abyss of legal, ethical and social upheaval. Why am I being persecuted for something I had no control over? "

En hr er dlkurinn, skrifaur af Martin Newland:

"My wife has forbidden me from talking about politics at family meals. If I nevertheless manage to navigate myself into an argument over Israel or the importance to global stability of a strong U.S., she leaves the table because she knows the bread rolls will soon start flying.

My broadly pro-U.S., pro-Israel stance has relegated me to the cultural and ideological fringes. The hatred of the U.S. and Tony Blair is so intense here in the U.K. that many sections of the right have found themselves in an unlikely alliance with elements of the hard left. Thus, the Daily Mail in London seems to be in competition with the left-wing Guardian and the BBC to see who can heap the most ordure on the U.S. and Mr. Blair.

It is strange that, as a conservative, I feel more politically in tune with the outgoing Labour Prime Minister than with the new-ish Conservative leader. The latter, David Cameron, finger held aloft to test the political wind, has made a point of criticizing U.S. foreign policy, and has attacked Mr. Blair for being too "slavish" to Washington's dictates.

The Conservatives took advantage of the recent war in southern Lebanon to adopt the language of "proportionality" when speaking of Israel and to talk up their "soft power" credentials. Malcolm Rifkind, a former minister and a bit of a "Tory wet," was dispatched to speak to the media about Iraq as a greater foreign policy disaster than either Vietnam or Suez. I don't remember any such talk when the party, its new leader included, voted to invade Iraq in the first place. The Conservatives were fully signed up to "shock and awe" tactics then, as were the British military.

There has always been a streak of anti-Americanism in British conservatism, which probably has something to do with the replacement of British world hegemony by American influence in the last century. Many conservatives now adopt an air of patronizing exasperation when talking about the U.S., as though Americans were well-meaning rednecks with more power than sense. This is pure idiocy. It is likely that the Conservatives will gain power soon. They clearly do not realize that the Americans have long memories, and that any new administration of either political hue will expect public solidarity from its English ally across the water, or at the very least complete discretion.

For my part, I think Cameron is a good politician. But I simply do not trust him as an international statesman. If I wanted Jacques Chirac-style international isolationism I would move to France, where the quality of life is in any case better than in the U.K. For the first time since I turned 18, I think I will be staying away from the polls the next time around. My country has lost its cojones.

The post 9/11 world appears to have firmly rejected what George W. Bush and Tony Blair, for all their blunders, saw as a fundamental truth: we are locked in a cultural and military engagement with resurgent world Islamism, and that unless we defend Western principles -- the rule of law, democracy, the separation of the judiciary and the executive, the separation of church and state, and a fundamentally Judeo-Christian system of ethical behaviour -- we run the risk of becoming culturally and morally overrun. Already our moral sense has become disordered. Conservative commentators are writing about the "calm and dignified" way in which Saddam sought to meet his death. Dinner parties and the media remain obsessed with the invasion of rogue state Iraq, but seem quite relaxed over our handing of the Olympics to China, which suppresses democracy, the flow of information and religious freedom.

We seem incapable of discerning the difference between theocratic Iran possessing nuclear weapons, and democratic Israel possessing them. EU polls have named Israel as the greatest threat to world peace. What about North Korea? What about the fact that the closest the world has come to nuclear exchange since the Cuban Missile Crisis was when India and Pakistan threatened deployment a few years ago? What about Pakistan specifically, whose "father of the bomb," A.Q. Khan, disseminated nuclear know-how to unstable regimes?

When allied to Western interests, U.S. power is a good thing. Instead, we celebrate Washington's weakness and gloat over the humiliation of Tony Blair, who, despite his many failings, has proved himself the most effective British leader since Margaret Thatcher. We appear to welcome the political misfortunes of our Western leaders, and seem ready to place our faith in the hope that myriads of differing and divergent national interests can somehow magically align themselves toward a common purpose should something nasty happen to Western interests, or should the West identify a reason, as it did in Kosovo, to engage in some global policing.

We do not recognize the pacifying influence of American global power, backed by the most formidable military machine in history. Its carrier fleets sit off troublesome coastlines, as reminders to volatile, expansionist states such as Pakistan, China and North Korea that the above-mentioned "Western principles" will be defended to the hilt. Until the pundits and the politicians come up with another formula for the global defence of Western interests and values, I will stick with the Americans.

It will mean eating in another room at family dinners, but that's okay by me.
