Terrorists mull 'chemical attack' in Aleppo to frame Syrian govt - Russia's Defense Ministry

September 29, 2016 by legitgov

Terrorists mull 'chemical attack' in Aleppo to frame Syrian govt - Russia's Defense Ministry | 29 Sept 2016 | Terrorist groups in Syria might use chemical weapons against civilians and the army in Aleppo in order to pin the blame for the atrocities on Damascus and further undermine the crumbling peace process in the war-torn country, the Russian Defense Ministry said. "It became known that terrorist groups are preparing provocative attacks with chemical weapons on Syrian army positions and residential areas in the east part of Aleppo to accuse government forces [of the attacks]," said Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir, the first deputy chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff. The warning echoed Syrian UN envoy Bashar Ja'afari's proclamations earlier this week, when he told the UN Security Council that militants from the hardline Ahrar Al-Sham Islamist group are planning to use white phosphorus in an attack on civilians in order to later blame it on Syrian armed forces.

'Libertarian' Gary Johnson is stumped yet again when asked to name his favorite foreign leader

September 29, 2016 by legitgov

'I guess I'm having another Aleppo moment!': 'Libertarian' Gary Johnson is stumped yet again when asked to name his favorite foreign leader --Earlier this month, Johnson replied 'What is Aleppo?' when asked about the refugee crisis in the war-torn Syrian city | 29 Sept 2016 | Libertarian [sic] Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson fluffed another interview on Wednesday night. Johnson was a guest at a live town hall on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews, who asked him to name his favorite world leader. And the ex-governor of New Mexico failed to name a single leader he respects from any country on the planet. Johnson admitted to having 'brain freeze' and even tried to avoid the question by mentioning his gaffe from earlier this month. [Pea-brain Gary Johnson advocates mandatory vaccines. Ergo, he is no libertarian. (Hillary Clinton has spoken in support of mandating vaccination. Donald Trump has asserted on Twitter that vaccines have in 'many' cases caused autism [and other side effects, including death].) Johnson is just another corporatist dirt-bag inserted into the rigged race. --LRP]

The investigation drew criticism from Republicans for not recommending charges against the Democratic presidential nominee. "You can call us wrong, but don't call us weasels," he told the House Judiciary Committee. "We are not weasels, we are honest people and we did this in that way."

U.S. Military Is Building a $100 Million Drone Base in Africa

September 29, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. Military Is Building a $100 Million Drone Base in Africa | 29 Sept 2016 | Agadez, Niger, almost blends into the cocoa-colored wasteland that surrounds it. Only when you descend farther can you make out a city that curves around an airfield before fading into the desert...U.S. military documents reveal new information about an American drone base under construction on the outskirts of the city. The long-planned project - considered the most important U.S. military construction effort in Africa, according to formerly secret files obtained by The Intercept through the Freedom of Information Act - is slated to cost $100 million, and is just one of a number of recent American military initiatives in the impoverished nation.

'US has always been main sponsor and creator of Islamic State' - former CIA contractor

September 29, 2016 by legitgov

'US has always been main sponsor and creator of Islamic State' - former CIA contractor | 29 Sept 2016 | The US claim that Russian troops will go home in body bags if Moscow doesn't end its Aleppo offensive is absurd, former CIA contractor Steven Kelley told RT. He said Russia is the only answer to defeating ISIS. When asked about State Department spokesperson John Kirby's warning that Russia "will continue to send troops home in body bags" if it doesn't put an end to the offensive, Kelley said Washington is pretending to be fighting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL [but still I-CIA-SIS]) when it isn't doing so at all. "The US has always been the main sponsor and creator of Daesh (Arabic acronym for IS), so this charade that they are having anything to do with fighting Daesh in Syria is completely a farce, and I think the rest of the world is smart enough to realize that everything that comes out of the mouth of John Kirby or any of the State Department personnel is complete and utter balderdash," Kelley said. He advised Russian President Vladimir Putin to focus on "getting the job done," as Russia is the only way IS will be defeated in Syria.

September 29, 2016 by legitgov

The House of Representatives voted 348-77 against the bill, hours after the Senate rejected it 97-1, meaning the "Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act" will become law...Support was fueled by impatience in Congress with Saudi Arabia [aka ISIS on steroids] over its human rights record, promotion of a severe form of Islam tied to militancy and failure to do more to ease the international refugee crisis.

More protests set after police kill unarmed black man in California

September 28, 2016 by legitgov

Protesters chant 'murder' in police shooting of black man in California | 28 Sept 2016 | Protesters yelled "murder" and demanded a federal investigation on Wednesday after a police officer in southern California shot and killed an unarmed black man, less than two weeks after similar incidents sparked outrage in two other U.S. cities. In the latest shooting, two officers responded to calls about an African-American man in his 30s walking in traffic and "not acting like himself," according to police in El Cajon, a city of about 100,000 residents some 15 miles (24 km) northeast of San Diego. Local activists and friends...said the man was mentally ill and that he may have been suffering a seizure in the moments before his death.

Senate votes 97 to 1 to override Obama's 9/11 bill veto

September 28, 2016 by legitgov

Senate votes 97 to 1 to override Obama's 9/11 bill veto --Vote is first override of Saudi-influenced Obama administration --Useless eater Harry Reid is only 'no' vote | 28 Sept 2016 | The US Senate voted to override President Barack Obama's veto of the bill that would allow Americans to potentially sue Saudi Arabia for 9/11. This is the first veto override during the Obama presidency. Obama vetoed the bill last week, explaining that the "Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act" (JASTA) would erode the doctrine of sovereign immunity and expose the US to lawsuits around the world. JASTA, which passed unanimously in both the House and the Senate, allows US judges to waive sovereign immunity claims when dealing with acts of terrorism committed on American soil - potentially allowing lawsuits against Saudi Arabia over the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. [Odd how Obama doesn't give a damn about 'US sovereignty' while pimping his TPP corporate takeover.]

DailyMail.com has asked the Clinton campaign whether they knew about the accusations, which do not appear to have ended in conviction, before the candidate spoke about her at the debate.

Senators Press FBI Director on Response to Terrorism Threat

September 28, 2016 by legitgov

Senators Press FBI Director on Response to Terrorism Threat | 27 Sept 2016 | Republican senators pressed FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday about whether anything more could have been done to prevent recent acts of extremist violence, including the Orlando nightclub massacre and the Manhattan bombing this month...The questions arose because the FBI has said it investigated Orlando gunman Omar Mateen a few years before the June shooting and interviewed him as part of that probe. The FBI in 2014 also looked into Ahmad Khan Rahami, the Afghan-born U.S. citizen accused in the explosion, but found nothing that tied him to terrorism. Two senators, in particular, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, said they were alarmed that both individuals had at one point been on the FBI's radar but were [allegedly] not intercepted.

September 27, 2016 by legitgov

ISIS may strike Europe with car bomb and chemical attacks, warns EU counter-terrorism chief | 27 Sept 2016 | Acknowledging that the terrorist threat in the EU has reached its peak in the last two decades, the EU Counter-Terrorism Coordinator warned the bloc's lawmakers that Europe could face new ISIS-coordinated attacks, possibly even involving chemical weapons.
