Destroying ISIS May Take Years, U.S. Officials Say

September 8, 2014 by legitgov

Big new money pit opens for US mercenary firms, 'defense' industry: Destroying ISIS May Take Years, U.S. Officials Say 7 Sept 2014 The Obama administration is preparing to carry out a campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria that may take three years to complete, requiring a sustained effort that could last until after President Obama has left office, according to senior administration officials. The first phase, an air campaign with nearly 145 airstrikes in the past month, is already underway... The next phase, which would begin sometime after Iraq forms a more inclusive government, scheduled this week, is expected to involve an intensified effort to train, advise or equip the Iraqi military, Kurdish fighters and possibly members of Sunni tribes.

September 8, 2014 by legitgov

CIA torture of terror suspects 'far exceeds waterboarding,' brought prisoners close to point of death 7 Sept 2014 The CIA brought top al-Qaeda suspects close "to the point of death" by drowning them in water-filled baths during interrogation sessions in the years that followed the September 11 attacks, a security source has told The Telegraph. The description of the torture meted out to at least two leading al-Qaeda suspects, including the alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, far exceeds the conventional understanding of waterboarding, or "simulated drowning" so far admitted by the CIA. "They weren't just pouring water over their heads or over a cloth," said the source who has first-hand knowledge of the period. "They were holding them under water until the point of death, with a doctor present to make sure they did not go too far. This was real torture."

CDC official: Virus hitting Midwest could be 'tip of iceberg' 7 Sept 2014 A respiratory virus is sending hundreds of children to hospitals in Missouri and possibly throughout the Midwest and beyond, officials say. The unusually high number of hospitalizations reported now could be" just the tip of the iceberg in terms of severe cases," said Mark Pallansch, a virologist and director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Viral Diseases. Ten states have contacted the CDC for assistance in investigating clusters of enterovirus [EV-D68] -- Colorado, North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Kentucky.

U.S. air strikes 'target insurgents' near Iraq's Haditha Dam

September 7, 2014 by legitgov

U.S. air strikes 'target insurgents' near Iraq's Haditha Dam 7 Sept 2014 U.S. warplanes carried out four strikes on Islamic State insurgents menacing Iraq's Haditha Dam on Sunday, witnesses and officials said, widening what President Barack Obama called a campaign to curb and ultimately defeat the jihadist movement. Obama has branded Islamic State an acute threat to the West as well as Middle East and said that key NATO allies stand ready to back Washington in action against the well-[US-]armed sectarian force, which has seized expanses of northern Iraq and eastern Syria and declared a border-blurring religious caliphate. The leader of a pro-Iraqi government paramilitary force in western Iraq said the air strikes wiped out an Islamic State patrol trying to attack the dam - Iraq's second biggest hydroelectric facility that also provides millions with water. [The US may destroy the dam and blame Islamic State. Such a flood would wipe out tons of people and leave the area for nothing but oil production, much like what George W. Bush did when he blew the levies and flooded the Ninth Ward of New Orleans in 2005. --LRP]

President Obama to delay executive action on immigration until after the mid-term elections

September 7, 2014 by legitgov

President Obama to delay executive action on immigration until after the mid-term elections 6 Sept 2014 Abandoning his pledge to act by the end of summer, President Barack Obama has decided to delay any executive action on immigration until after the November congressional elections, White House officials said. Two White House officials said Obama concluded that circumventing Congress through executive actions on immigration during the campaign would politicize the issue and hurt future efforts to pass a broad overhaul. The officials said Obama had no specific timeline to act, but that he still would take his executive steps before the end of the year.

Say goodbye to Summer! Snow comes a month early with SEVEN states due to drop into freezing conditions over the next week thanks to another polar vortex 6 Sept 2014 Winter weather isn't waiting for the calendar to say when it's time to hit the northern U.S. this year, with snowfall predicted across as many as seven states by Tuesday. Montana, Wyoming, the Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan should all see some snow in the coming week, if the new GFS model is correct, as expected temperatures dip into the 30s. For the [un]lucky in Wyoming, that snow will only fall on the mountains.

Ceasefire: President Poroshenko trick to regroup troops - Spanish volunteer to RT

September 7, 2014 by legitgov

Ceasefire: President Poroshenko trick to regroup troops - Spanish volunteer to RT 6 Sept 2014 Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has announced ceasefires before and was always the first to violate them, Spanish volunteer Ramiro Gomez, who fought in eastern Ukraine against the troops of the coup-imposed Kiev government, told RT. According to the European volunteer, this ceasefire is in effect a part of Poroshenko's strategy: "to reorganize the [Ukrainian] army which is already a large number, before a general counteroffensive by Lugansk and Donetsk [forces]," Ramiro Gomez told RT. "They [Ukrainian forces] look sort of kicked out to the sidelines of the game," he said, adding he personally has little expectations of a successful ceasefire.

Ex-Tribune reporter said to have 'collaborative' relationship with CIA

September 6, 2014 by legitgov

Ex-Tribune reporter said to have 'collaborative' relationship with CIA 4 Sept 2014 A website has published emails suggesting that a former Tribune Washington bureau national security reporter submitted some of his work to CIA officials prior to publication, a practice banned by many media outlets [Yeah, right!], including Tribune. Ken Dilanian, a former staff writer for the newspaper chain that includes the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune, had a "closely collaborative relationship with the CIA," according to the article, published Thursday by the online news site the Intercept. In documents made public by the website, Dilanian appeared to promise positive news coverage and on occasion sent the CIA press office entire story drafts for review prior to publication. In at least one instance, the CIA's reaction appears to have led to significant changes in a story eventually published by Tribune newspapers, according to the emails.

Finding of 'Gross Negligence' by BP Should Provide States with More Funds for Recovery of Endangered Sea Turtles

September 6, 2014 by legitgov

Finding of 'Gross Negligence' by BP Should Provide States with More Funds for Recovery of Endangered Sea Turtle Populations 5 Sep 2014 U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier's ruled yesterday, that BP's "gross negligence" and reckless behavior caused the catastrophic oil spill into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Millions of dollars of BP money has already been sent to the five coastal states impacted (AL, FL, LA, MS, TX), but so far none of those funds have been allotted for endangered Kemp's ridley sea turtle recovery efforts. This ruling could provide impacted states with more clean up funds that may at last open the door to help recovery efforts for the world's smallest sea turtle, the Kemp's ridley...Sadly, since the spill the number of nesting Kemp's ridley sea turtles has declined steadily over the past three years.

$1 Trillion Trove of Rare Minerals Revealed Under Afghanistan

September 6, 2014 by legitgov

Ever wonder why USociopaths invaded and occupied in Afghanistan - I mean, aside from protecting the CIA's opium routes? $1 Trillion Trove of Rare Minerals Revealed Under Afghanistan 5 Sep 2014 Despite being one of the poorest nations in the world, Afghanistan may be sitting on one of the richest troves of minerals in the world, valued at nearly $1 trillion, according to U.S. scientists. In 2006, U.S. researchers flew airborne missions to conduct magnetic, gravity and hyperspectral surveys over Afghanistan. The magnetic surveys probed for iron-bearing minerals up to 6 miles (10 kilometers) below the surface, while the gravity surveys tried to identify sediment-filled basins potentially rich in [wait for it...] oil and gas. In 2010, the USGS data attracted the attention of the U.S. Department of Defense's Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO), which is entrusted with rebuilding destroying Afghanistan.

Ebola in Senegal - Interesting Oil and Gas Map

September 6, 2014 by legitgov

Ebola in Senegal - Interesting Oil and Gas Map by Patricia Doyle, Ph.D. 30 Aug 2014 ...It does seen that there is an oil map for each country that has seen W African strain of Ebola break out...I do believe that the people who fish along the coast probably have been complaining to local government officials about the lack of fish. I am sure that this has gotten back to the oil companies in the region. Now there won't be complaints as there won't be many fishermen left either. These oil maps are kind of a coincidence no? They can almost be interchanged for Ebola outbreak maps.

ISIS atrocities and US imperialism

ISIS atrocities and US imperialism 4 Sept 2014 The savage murder of US journalist Steven Sotloff has provoked justifiable anger and revulsion among millions of people around the world. It is necessary, however, not only to sympathize with Sotloff and his family, but to understand the deeper causes of this tragedy. The murder, following that of James Foley last month, is a further demonstration of both the reactionary character of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the terrible consequences of a half-century of intervention in the Middle East by US imperialism.

"The plane's occupants did not respond to attempts to communicate," the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) said this morning.
