Pitt and Tarantino face backlash for war film

Brad Pitt and Quentin Tarantino are facing a possible backlash for their forthcoming World War II film “Inglorious Bastards”, which depicts violent attacks on German soldiers.
The movie, Tarantino’s remake of a 1978 Italian film, reportedly stars Pitt as a U.S. Army lieutenant who leads a group of Jewish-Americans dropped into Nazi occupied Europe to seek revenge.
A leaked quote from the script, obtained by the New York Post, reveals Pitt’s character barking at soldiers: “Every man under my command owes me 100 Nazi scalps, and y’all will git (get) me 100 Nazi scalps, taken from the heads of 100 dead Nazis, or die trying.”
And critics believe the film’s portrayal of German characters, in addition to the violent events, will spark outrage amongst German citizens.
According to a report by The Times of London: “It is not just the scalping, or the carving of swastikas in foreheads, or the shooting of a German officer’s testicles, or the slow strangling scene, shown with Tarantino’s customary love of detail, that is likely to upset the German nation and its critics. It is the whole idea of turning the second World War into a comic book adventure in which not a single German character has redeeming value.”
In a recent interview, Tarantino said “I don’t want it to feel like a period film. This is a modern, in-your-face movie.”
He has not commented on reports of the leaked script.

Frisco foundation head repays $1 million embezzlement
The head of a foundation that has funneled millions to liberal causes anonymously repaid $1 million embezzled from one of the organizations the foundation financially supports.
The New York Times reported Sunday that Drummond Pike secretly agreed to replace the money embezzled from the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or Acorn. Pike is chief executive of the San Francisco-based Tides Foundation.
According to the Times, Pike was aiding Wade Rathke, the Acorn founder and a Tides Foundation board member, when he decided to buy the promissory note requiring the Rathke family to repay money taken by Rathke’s brother, Dale.
Acorn discovered the embezzlement in 2000, but did not alert law enforcement officials. Acorn’s management committee instead negotiated an agreement to have the Rathke family pay back the stolen funds.
The Times reported the agreement was carried on the books of an Acorn affiliate, Citizens Consulting Inc., as a loan to an officer. Pike purchased the loan in June from the affiliate, according to e-mail messages from senior Acorn officials obtained by the newspaper in which they discussed how to keep the transaction a secret.
Acorn’s Web site describes the organization as the nation’s largest grassroots community organization of low- and moderate-income people, operating in 110 cities across the country.
Acorn has an Allegheny County chapter that most recently garnered attention in June, when its members marched through East Liberty to protest the upswing in mortgage foreclosures.
The Times reported that several Acorn affiliates have received money from Pike’s Tides Foundation, which has provided more than $400 million to nonprofit groups since 2000. Much of the money flows out of donor-controlled accounts that Tides manages.
Tides received $8.3 million from 1994 through 2005 from The Heinz Endowments, chaired by Pittsburgh ketchup heiress Teresa Heinz.

Israel’s secret missile test goes out live on air
An Israeli TV channel has found out that anyone who has a satellite dish can watch live transmissions of the country’s Defence Ministry. No special passwords are needed and transmissions can be easily accessed not only in Israel but all across the Middle East, including countries with which Israel hardly has warm relations.
It’s not known how many people witnessed Israel’s secret missile test. A transmission from a camera at the control was apparently meant to interact with other control sites but became available for all those who were lucky enough to tune in.
The footage clearly shows people, computers and other equipment. All conversation, including passwords to the computer of the Ministry of Defence, can be clearly heard.
At the time of the launch those that were tuned in could see the whole process from the start of the countdown to a monitor showing all the details of the secret weapon, including speed and geographical location.
It still not clear how or why the top secret information was leaked. The Defence Ministry has yet to comment.
