Wildfire in Southern California triples in size | 17 June 2016 | A wildfire in Southern California more than tripled in size overnight and forced officials to close a major highway, while another blaze in New Mexico had communities on edge after destroying two dozen homes, officials said on Friday. California's so-called Sherpa Fire, burning in chaparral and tall grass, was driven by strong winds as it roared down hillsides toward the Pacific Ocean in a wilderness area northwest of the coastal city of Santa Barbara. It grew from 1,200 acres (486 hectares) on Thursday night to more than 4,000 acres (1,619 hectares) early Friday, said Kerry Bierman, a spokeswoman for the joint operations center fighting the fire.

The hottest May in modern history: Earth breaks heat record for 13th month in a row | 16 June 2016 | Earth sizzled to its 13th straight month of record heat in May, but it wasn't quite as much of an over-the-top scorcher as previous months, federal scientists say.

Abell said that Mateen asked for level 3 body armor, but the store doesn't sell it. He also said Mateen made a phone call and spoke Arabic before asking for bulk ammunition. [*Ergo,* the FBI knew. So, why arrest Mateen's wife for not calling the FBI? The FBI was already called. --LRP]

NATO plans for Afghan war through 2020

June 17, 2016 by legitgov

NATO plans for Afghan war through 2020 | 15 June 2016 | The war in on Afghanistan -- America's longest conflict -- will grind on for at least another four years as NATO allies are prepared to commit $5 billion through 2020 to train, equip and pay Afghan security forces, according to a senior NATO diplomat. Last week, President Obama granted U.S. troops in Afghanistan expanded authority to attack Taliban insurgents. The new rules allow U.S. forces to advise regular Afghan combat units and to call in airstrikes...The new expanded authorities will give U.S. commanders in Afghanistan more flexibility, by allowing them to identify and get pre-approval for air targets in advance, instead of just responding to emergencies, Gen. Mark Welsh, the Air Force chief of staff, told reporters in Washington.

June 16, 2016 by legitgov

Wikileaks will publish 'enough evidence' to indict Hillary Clinton, warns Assange | 13 June 2016 | Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange warns more information will be published about Hillary Clinton, enough to indict her if the US government is courageous enough to do so, in what he predicts will be "a very big year" for the whistleblowing website. "We have emails relating to Hillary Clinton which are pending publication," Assange told Peston on Sunday when asked if more of her leaked electronic communications would be published. About 32,000 emails from her private server have been leaked by Wikileaks so far, but Assange would not confirm the number of emails or when they are expected to be published. Speaking via video link from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, Assange said that there was enough information in the emails to indict Clinton, but that was unlikely to happen under the current Attorney General, Obama appointee Loretta Lynch.

U.S. court backs landmark Obama internet equal-access rules | 14 June 2016 | A U.S. appeals court upheld the Obama administration's landmark rules barring internet service providers from obstructing or slowing down consumer access to web content on Tuesday, dealing a blow to big cable and mobile phone companies. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, in a 2-1 decision, backed the Federal Communications Commission's so-called net neutrality rules put in place last year to make internet service providers treat all internet traffic equally. The rules prohibited broadband providers from giving or selling access to speedy internet, essentially a "fast lane" on the web's information superhighway, to certain internet services over others.

Fifty documents, released under a freedom of information request from the American Civil Liberties Union, detail the early days of the CIA's use of torture, after then President [sic] George W. Bush directed the agency to detain terror suspects around the world.

Newly disclosed CDC biolab failures 'like a screenplay for a disaster movie' [or a bioterror false flag] | 02 June 2016 | Last month, USA TODAY revealed that a subset of labs at the CDC's Fort Collins, Colo., infectious disease facility are among a handful of labs nationwide that have had their federal permits secretly suspended in recent years for serious safety violations while working with bioterror pathogens. Yet USA TODAY has now learned that CDC kept even Congress in the dark about the Fort Collins incident and some others -- despite an oversight committee asking the agency in 2014 for a list all incidents at CDC labs since 2002 involving bioterror pathogens found in unauthorized areas. The CDC says the information was "inadvertently omitted."

Did a delay in response give the gunman more time? Cops face questions over why it took three hours for SWAT teams to storm Orlando nightclub as police chief admits officers may have shot some of the VICTIMS | 13 June 2016 | Orlando police are facing questions over why it took three hours for a SWAT team to storm the nightclub where ISIS fanatic Omar Mateen slaughtered 49 people. As the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history began to unfold, an off-duty police officer working at a gay nightclub exchanged gunfire with the suspect. But authorities chose to hold off on letting the tactical units enter Pulse nightclub, where more than 100 people were shot.

FBI had closely scrutinized the Orlando shooter before dropping investigation

June 14, 2016 by legitgov

FBI had closely scrutinized the Orlando shooter before dropping investigation | 13 June 2016 | The FBI investigated the Orlando shooter for 10 months beginning in 2013, putting him under surveillance, recording his calls and using confidential informants to gauge whether he had been radicalized after the suspect talked at work about his connections with al-Qaeda and dying as a martyr. As part of the investigation, Omar Mateen, who was killed in a shootout with police on Sunday morning, was placed on a terrorism watch list and interviewed twice before the probe was closed in March 2014 because agents concluded he was not a threat, FBI Director James B. Comey said Monday in an interview with reporters at bureau headquarters. Several months later, in July 2014, Mateen surfaced in another investigation into the first American to die as a suicide bomber in Syria, a fellow Floridian. And, again, investigators moved on. It was the third time -- following the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 and a planned attack last year on a contest to draw the prophet Muhammad -- that someone who had been scrutinized by the FBI later carried out a terrorist attack.

Knifeman kills Paris policeman and partner, Islamic State claims responsibility | 13 June 2016 | A knifeman stabbed a French police chief to death in front of his Paris suburb home late on Monday and his partner's body was found inside, officials said, killings the Islamic State's Amaq news agency said were carried out by a "fighter" belonging to the militant group. The unidentified attacker repeatedly knifed the 42-year-old commander in the stomach before barricading himself inside the house, an Interior Ministry spokesman said. He was shot dead by members of an elite police unit after negotiations failed. A judicial source said the anti-terrorism unit of the prosecutor's office had been handed the investigation because of comments made during lengthy exchanges between the assailant and negotiators, but gave no further details.

Trump revokes Washington Post's campaign press credentials [It's about time!] | 13 June 2016 | U.S. Republican Donald Trump said on Monday he will no longer issue press credentials to the Washington Post [the lobbying arm for Amazon, so Jeff Bezos can use more outsourced labor and continue to pay no taxes], stopping the publication from gaining access to press areas at his presidential campaign events.
