December 19, 2014 by legitgov

Drone strikes counterproductive, says secret CIA report 19 Dec 2014 Drone strikes and other "targeted killings" of terrorist and insurgent leaders favoured by the US and supported by Australia can strengthen extremist groups and be counterproductive, according to a secret CIA report published by WikiLeaks. According to a leaked document by the CIA's Directorate of Intelligence, "high value targeting" (HVT) involving air strikes and special forces operations against insurgent leaders can be effective, but can also havenegative effects including increasing violence and greater popular support for extremist groups. The leaked document is classified secret and "NoForn" (meaning not to be distributed to non-US nationals) and reviews attacks by the United States and other countries engaged in counter-insurgency operations over the past 50 years.

December 18, 2014 by legitgov

Western nations want to chain 'the Russian bear' - Putin [Not gonna happen. Bears will NOT be chained.] 18 Dec 2014 Western nations want to chain "the Russian bear," pull out its teeth and ultimately have it stuffed, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned. He said anti-Russian sanctions are the cost of being an independent nation. Putin used the vivid metaphor of a "chained bear" during his annual Q&A session with the media in Moscow in response to a question about whether he believed that the troubles of the Russian economy were payback for the reunification with Crimea. "It's not payback for Crimea. It's the cost of our natural desire to preserve Russia as a nation, a civilization and a state," Putin said. The president said that even if "the Russian bear" started "sitting tight...and eating berries and honey," this would not stop pressure being applied against the country.

He’s now looking at up to eight years in prison for aiding hackers in breaching corporate computers, after pleading guilty in April to being an accessory.

Gov. Cuomo to Ban Fracking in New York State, Citing Health Risks 17 Dec 2014 Gov. Andrew M.

It came amid increased calls by environmentalists to ban fracking, which uses water and chemicals to release oil and natural gas trapped in deeply buried shale deposits.

December 17, 2014 by legitgov

Did CIA torture violate Nuremberg ban on human experimentation? 16 Dec 2014 CIA health professionals may have committed war crimes by collecting and analyzing data on brutally interrogated detainees in potential violation of U.S. and international bans on research on human subjects without their consent, a human rights organization said Tuesday. Physicians for Human Rights called on President Barack Obama and Congress to establish a commission of inquiry to examine the participation of CIA and private medical personnel in the interrogation program, including possible breaches of domestic and international laws. "The CIA relied upon health professionals at every step to commit and conceal the brutal and systematic torture of national security detainees," the organization said in an analysis of a four-year study of the agency's interrogation program released last week by the Senate Intelligence Committee.

US and Cuba to normalise diplomatic relations and end decades of hostility 17 Dec 2014 The United States and Cuba have ended decades of cold war hostility by agreeing to normalise diplomatic and travel relations after 18 months of secret talks on prisoner releases brokered by the Vatican. The surprise breakthrough came after a 45-minute phone call between Barack Obama and Raúl Castro on Tuesday finalised the release of Alan Gross, a US government aid contractor spy for USAID held for five years in Cuba, which accused him of being a spy. But as he was dramatically flown back to the US on Wednesday accompanied by three congressmen, it became clear that a far larger deal had been agreed between the two countries, not just to release other prisoners and spies, but to restore ties between the countries that have been frozen since 1967.

Activists Trash [FBI Snitch and Fraud] Sharpton for Silencing Speaker at DC Rally 16 Dec 2014 Critics denounce him a race hustler [FBI snitch, corporatist, and fraud], and now some grassroots activists are calling the Rev. Al Sharpton an elitist and questioning his self-appointed role as a civil rights leader for a younger generation. Sharpton angered some protesters at a weekend march in Washington, D.C., after he created a VIP section for special guests and pulled the microphone on an activist who wanted to address the crowd. "Youth protesters push back against Al Sharpton's role in police brutality marches," the website Mashable reports. "If Rev. Al Sharpton ever hoped to lead the 'black lives matter' movement that's sweeping the United States, he likely lost that opportunity in one moment on Saturday."

Manning tortured like terrorist, Welsh relatives say 15 Dec 2014 US authorities tortured Chelsea Manning with barbaric CIA techniques, which posed a threat to her psychological health, the Welsh aunt of the jailed whistleblower revealed to local media. Before her trial for providing WikiLeaks with the largest cache of classified information in US history, Chelsea Manning was humiliated in a similar way that terrorist suspects were, her Welsh relatives told WalesOnline on Sunday. "What really hurt me was the treatment Chelsea received in Quantico two years before the trial: stripped naked, kept in solitary confinement, made to stand in a corner, everything taken away," said Sharon Staples, Manning's aunt. Her revelation echoed the 2012 report of UN special rapporteur Juan Mendez, who ruled that "the alleged prolonged solitary confinement...was...a violation of Manning's right to physical and psychological integrity," as well as of presumption of innocence.
