High-Speed Trading Glitch Costs Investors Billions

High-Speed Trading Glitch Costs Investors Billions 06 May 2010 The glitch that sent markets tumbling Thursday was years in the making, driven by the rise of computers that transformed stock trading more in the last 20 years than in the previous 200. The old system of floor traders matching buyers and sellers has been replaced by machines that process trades automatically, speeding the flow of buy and sell orders but also sometimes facilitating the kind of unexplained volatility that roiled markets Thursday.

Activist spied on? Man wins settlement

Activist spied on? Man wins settlement 05 May 2010 A 22-year-old anti-war activist from The Evergreen State College will get $169,000 as part of a settlement with the State Patrol and two other law-enforcement agencies over allegations that their officers engaged in political spying and harassment. Philip Chinn was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving by state patrol troopers in May 2007, while traveling to an anti-war protest at the Port of Grays Harbor in Aberdeen. According to court documents, Chinn was pulled over after police had broadcast an "attempt to locate" his car, which was described as containing "three known anarchists."

Taleban disown Times Square 'Idiot Bomber'

Taleban disown Times Square 'Idiot Bomber' 07 May 2010 The alleged would-be Times Square terrorist was disowned by the Pakistani Taleban yesterday as American politicians called for him to be stripped of his US citizenship so he can be tried by a military tribunal. Faisal Shahzad -- nicknamed the "Idiot Bomber" for a series of blunders leading to his arrest -- was praised by a spokesman for the Pakistani Taleban but disowned in the same breath. "We don’t even know him," a spokesman said. [Right, but I'm sure those in Langley, VA, *do.*]

Labor unions, civil-rights groups boycott Arizona 06 May 2010 Leaders of national labor unions and civil rights groups said Thursday that they will boycott Arizona until the state's toughest-in-the-nation immigration law is repealed, overturned by the courts or superseded by congressional passage of comprehensive reform.

Shahzad was questioned by U.S. immigration inspectors Feb. 3 after his most recent trip to Pakistan, according to federal court records.

Thousands unable to vote as polling stations fail to cope

Thousands unable to vote as polling stations fail to cope 06 May 2010 Thousands of people were deprived of their right to vote last night as polling stations across the country were unable to cope with demand. Election chiefs told The Times that the widespread failures to deal with high voter turnout may lead to by-elections in the next few weeks, which could be critical to the outcome of the election. The Electoral Commission, the election watchdog, last night announced an investigation into the problems.

US oil regulator 'gave in to BP' over rig safety

US oil regulator 'gave in to BP' over rig safety --Firm allowed to drill without devising plan to cope with blow-out 07 May 2010 As crude oil continued to pour out of control into the Gulf of Mexico yesterday, questions were being asked over the relationship between BP and regulators in Washington amid allegations that the company was allowed to drill the deepwater well without filing plans for how it would cope with a blow-out like the one now in hand... An investigation by the Associated Press and other media outlets seemed to show that, after lobbying by BP, the Minerals Management Service (MMS) within the Interior Department relaxed the rules so that the company could dodge filing a proper blow-out contingency plan.

Israelis attack Apartheid Wall protesters 06 May 2010 Israeli forces have clashed with Palestinian demonstrators and international activists protesting the Israeli Apartheid Wall in the West Bank. The scuffles occurred on Thursday when the demonstrators sat in front of the armored bulldozers near the village of Wallaje in al-Quds (Jerusalem), trying to stop the Israeli forces, Reuters reported.

U.S. officials: No credible evidence that terrorists trained Shahzad

U.S. officials: No credible evidence that terrorists trained Shahzad 06 May 2010 No credible evidence has been found so far that the Pakistani-American man accused in the Times Square bombing plot received any serious terrorist training from the Pakistani Taliban or another radical Islamic group, six U.S. officials said Thursday. "There is nothing that confirms that any groups have been found involved in this for certain," one U.S. official told McClatchy. "It's a lot of speculation at this point."

Guantanamo Suspect Must Submit to Strip Search

Guantanamo Suspect Must Submit to Strip Search 06 May 2010 The first man brought from the Guantanamo Bay military prison to face trial in U.S. civilian court must attend the opening of his trial, forcing him to submit to strip searches he has resisted, a judge ruled on Thursday. U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani is competent to waive his right to be present for most court proceedings but said Ghailani must appear at least once at the start of trial... Ghailani has refused to voluntarily appear in court because doing so requires him to submit to a visual strip search that includes inspection of the rectal area. Such a search, according to expert testimony offered by his defense attorneys, triggers memories of CIA interrogations.

Obama sheltered BP's Deepwater Horizon rig from regulatory requirement

Obama sheltered BP's Deepwater Horizon rig from regulatory requirement By Tom Eley 06 May 2010 Last year the Obama administration granted oil giant BP a special exemption from a legal requirement that it produce a detailed environmental impact study on the possible effects of its Deepwater Horizon drilling operation in the Gulf of Mexico, an article Wednesday in the Washington Post reveals. Federal documents show that the Department of the Interior's Minerals Management Service (MMS) gave BP a "categorical exclusion" on April 6, 2009 to commence drilling with Deepwater Horizon even though it had not produced the impact study required by a law known as the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The report would have included probable ecological consequences in the event of a spill.

CIA allowed to kill terrorist suspects without identification

CIA allowed to kill terrorist suspects without identification 07 May 2010 The CIA received secret permission to attack a wider range of targets, including suspected militants whose names are not known, as part of a dramatic expansion of its campaign of drone strikes in Pakistan's border region, current and former counter-terrorism officials say. The expanded authority, approved two years ago by the Bush regime and continued by Barack Obama, permits the agency to rely on what officials describe as "pattern-of-life" analysis, using evidence collected by surveillance cameras on the unmanned aircraft and from other sources about individuals and locations. [Why aren't civilians taking down these killer drones?]

Joe Lieberman introducing bill to strip US terror suspects of citizenship

Joe Lieberman introducing bill to strip US terror suspects of citizenship 06 May 2010 A day after suggesting that U.S. citizenship laws should be changed to strip American terrorists of their nationality, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Insane) has introduced legislation to do just that. "I'm now putting together legislation [so that] any individual American citizen who is found to be involved in a foreign terrorist organization, as defined by the Department of State, would be deprived of their citizenship rights," Lieberman told reporters Tuesday.

Shahzad's father questioned in Times Square inquiry 06 May 2010 A high-level team of U.S. and Pakistani investigators grilled the father of the Times Square car bombing suspect and interrogated four people linked to a notorious Pakistani militant group, intelligence officials said Thursday.

Faisal Shahzad 'carried out dry run' before Times Square attack 06 May 2010 The man accused of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in Times Square carried out a dry run days before the failed attack, it has been claimed. Faisal Shahzad, who is in custody in New York on terrorism and weapons charges, drove from his home in Connecticut to the theatre district on April 28 in the vehicle that days later he would pack with explosives, a law enforcement official told the Associated Press.

The Taliban stimulus, funded by US taxpayers: Taliban leaders to be offered exile under Afghanistan peace plan --Karzai to discuss proposal that also offers reinsertion and jobs to former militants with Obama on US visit 05 May 2010 Top Taliban leaders could be offered exile outside Afghanistan if they agree to stop fighting the government of Hamid Karzai, a long-expected peace plan by the Afghan government will propose later this month. The far-reaching proposals, seen by the Guardian, also call for "deradicalisation" classes for insurgents and thousands of new manual jobs created for foot soldiers who renounce violence.

Car bomb suspect who slipped under radar is son of air force chief

'There were clues in Connecticut -- but only to the paranoid.' Car bomb suspect who slipped under radar is son of air force chief 06 May 2010 There were clues in Pakistan but only to the tight handful of [CIA] minders who knew what Faisal Shahzad was planning. What is beyond doubt is that he first came to the US in 1998 as 19-year-old student, the son of an air vice-marshal of the Pakistani Air Force, Baharul Haq, who remains well known as the founder of the Sherdils, the country’s leading military aerobatics team. He acquired two degrees, in computer science and business administration, from small private colleges in Washington and Bridgeport, Connecticut. His entitlement to citizenship came courtesy of his wife, Huma Mian, the daughter of a successful oil executive.

Times Square false flag conveniently provides cover for Obusha's war expansion: CIA to expand drone raids in Pakistan 06 May 2010 The CIA has received authorization to target a wider range of targets in Pakistan with its drone-guided missiles, despite national discontent on growing civilian death toll.

The US drone strikes began to expand under former President [sic] George Bush and have further intensified under President Barack Obama.

Emirates Denies Negligence Over Terror Suspect's Dubai Flight 06 May 2010 Emirates denied negligence over its failure to update a U.S. no-fly list, allowing the suspect in the attempted May 1 car bombing in New York’s Times Square to board a flight to Dubai... Faisal Shahzad was put on the federal no-fly list early on the afternoon of May 3, according to a law-enforcement official who requested anonymity. Within an hour, federal authorities sent out an electronic advisory. Airlines must update their computer systems individually with additions and Emirates didn’t do so, the official said.

Countries are risking cyber terrorism, security expert tells first world summit

Countries are risking cyber terrorism, security expert tells first world summit --Governments that fail to protect computer networks could face devastating attack, says former Pentagon director 05 May 2010 The spectre of crashing power grids, stalled air control towers... and defences left wide open was raised at the first cyber-security world summit that ended today, when politicians, officials, military leaders and industrialists warned that the US and other countries were failing to protect computer networks and were vulnerable to attacks of catastrophic proportions. Harry Raduege, former director at the Pentagon agency responsible for the computer network, said cyber attacks were growing in intensity and sophistication.

Interrogators had free hand to terrify detainees, Khadr hearing told

Interrogators had free hand to terrify detainees, Khadr hearing told --'We could do basically anything to scare the prisoners,' former interrogator - nicknamed 'Monster' - says 05 May 2010 Military interrogators at Bagram prison were under enormous pressure to extract information from detainees and had a free hand to terrify detainees into confessing, a Damien Corsetti, a former interrogator who knew Omar Khadr said Wednesday.

Mr. Corsetti, a huge man nicknamed 'Monster' at Bagram was the first witness called by Mr. Khadr’s defence team at the pre-trial hearings.

'I was expecting you. Are you NYPD or FBI?'

'I was expecting you. Are you NYPD or FBI?' What failed Times Square bomber said as he was arrested on flight to Dubai 06 May 2010 The man accused of trying to bomb New York's Times Square told officers who arrested him: 'I was expecting you.' Faisal Shahzad asked: 'Are you NYPD or FBI?', as he was seized from his seat on a plane that was about to leave JFK airport for Pakistan. He tried to car-bomb New York in revenge for U.S. drone attacks that killed Taliban leaders, it was claimed yesterday. A security row erupted after it emerged he gave a surveillance team the slip and was let on to the plane because of a bungle by airline staff.

Authorities Lost Shahzad in Traffic Monday

This is appearing to be a big, sloppy false flag: Authorities Lost Shahzad in Traffic Monday --Surveillance Teams Tracking the Accused Bomber Lost Him for At Least 90 Minutes 05 May 2010 Authorities following Faisal Shahzad lost track of him in traffic Monday as he drove from home in Connecticut in route to JFK airport, reports CBS News. For at least 90 minutes, and possibly more, surveillance teams lost contact with a man accused of trying to set off a car bomb in Times Square. Since Shahzad's arrest Monday, it's been unclear how tight the surveillance was of the accused bomber. And some have questioned why he was allowed to get on a crowded airplane where he might have injured passengers.
