The US and the EU are the main proponents of the agreement, and the authors of most joint changes, which also covers cross-border data flow. In a significant anti-transparency manoeuvre by the parties, the draft has been classified to keep it secret not just during the negotiations but for five years after the TISA enters into force.

House approves effort to limit NSA searches of U.S. data 20 Jun 2014 The U.S. House of Representatives has voted to limit the National Security Agency's ability to search U.S. records, after a similar provision was stripped out of a bill intended to rein in the agency. The House, by a 293-123 vote late Thursday, approved a bipartisan proposal to limit the NSA's surveillance programs by requiring the agency to get a court-ordered warrant to search U.S records in its possession. The proposal, offered as an amendment to a Department of Defense funding bill, would close the so-called "backdoor search" loophole in the FISA Amendments Act, a law allowing NSA surveillance of overseas communications.

VFP UK Visit Swedish Embassy Over Grave Concerns For Assange

June 20, 2014 by legitgov

VFP UK Visit Swedish Embassy Over Grave Concerns for Assange 19 Jun 2014 A delegation from Veterans For Peace UK are visiting the Swedish embassy today to voice grave concerns arising from the ongoing situation of Wikileaks Editor Mr Julian Assange. Veterans For Peace UK recognise Wikileaks as an organisation that reveals to the public the true nature of war. We want to know why it is that the relevant Swedish authority refuses to guarantee not to extradite Mr Assange to the the United States of America where he would face political persecution and human rights violations. We think it is unacceptable that the British public are picking up the bill to surround the Ecuadorian Embassy with police officers in order to facilitate the Swedish extradition request.

Panel questions Social Security field office closings

Panel questions Social Security field office closings 19 Jun 2014 The Social Security Administration has cut thousands of field workers and reduced hours and services at hundreds of satellite offices over the past four years at a time when baby boomers are starting to hit retirement age, a new Senate report concludes. Most troubling, the agency hasn't fully analyzed the impact of such reductions or followed its own protocol in many cases, according to the Senate Special Committee on Aging, which issued the study and held a hearing on it Wednesday. "I think it's a legitimate question: Is this a death by a thousand cuts?" said Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Orlando, who chairs the panel. "An agency known for its great service could be undercutting its mission. Most of this has been done with very little consultation of the Congress...and most of this has been done without consultation with the impacted communities."

Mining company buys armed drones for 'riot control' --An African mining company has ordered more than two dozen drones capable of shooting pepper spray, plastic bullets and lasers. 19 Jun 2014 An African mining company has ordered more than two dozen drones capable of shooting pepper spray, plastic ammunition and blinding lasers.

Benghazi suspect Ahmed Abu Khattala may be brought to U.S. on Navy ship

Benghazi suspect Ahmed Abu Khattala may be brought to U.S. on Navy ship --The administration has said only that he will appear before the U.S. District Court in Washington "in the coming days." 18 Jun 2014 Captured Libyan terrorism suspect Ahmed Abu Khattala may be brought to the United States aboard the Navy ship where he is being held, U.S. officials said, a prospect that would probably extend the amount of time he can be interrogated by the FBI without being brought before a court. Although the federal court where he is to be tried has not yet spoken on the issue, it could object to the relatively slow mode of transport, officials said. Abu Khattala is aboard the amphibious transport ship USS New York in the Mediterranean Sea.

ISIS militants 'with US passports'

ISIS militants 'with US passports' --'The seeds of 9/11s are being planted all over Iraq and Syria' 16 Jun 2014 There is something particularly concerning about the "masked, sociopathic murderers" who fight for the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), writes former state department official Andrew G Doran for the National Review. Some of them, he says, are Western citizens who have travelled to Syria to fight President Bashar Assad's government - and have passports or other immigration paperwork that would allow them to return to their home countries whenever they want. In fact, he says, citing the Daily Beast, perhaps a dozen are already in the US. [I saw this one marching down Broadway a mile away. See, after the next 9/11-style inside job, no one will be criticizing or questioning the NSA any more, n'est-ce pas?]

Obama to Congress: I don't need new permission on Iraq 18 Jun 2014 I'll let you know what's going on, but I don't need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq. While the White House statement emphasized Obama would continue to consult with Congress, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said the President "basically just briefed us on the situation in Iraq and indicated he didn't feel he had any need for authority from us for the steps that he might take." House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California agreed with McConnell's assessment, adding she believed congressional authorization for military force in Iraq back in 2001 and 2003 still applied.
