October 16, 2014 by legitgov

Moscow says U.S. working on military 'scenarios' at Russia's borders 16 Oct 2014 Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu accused the United States on Thursday of working on military "scenarios" near Russia's borders that he said were a source of grave concern. Interfax news agency quoted Shoigu as expressing surprise at a speech on Wednesday in which U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said U.S. armed forces "must deal with a revisionist Russia - with its modern and capable Army - on NATO's doorstep".

"This testifies to the fact that the Pentagon is working on scenarios for operations at the borders of our country."

Senate's inquiry into CIA torture sidesteps blaming Bush, aides

October 16, 2014 by legitgov

Senate's inquiry into CIA torture sidesteps blaming Bush, aides 16 Oct 2014 A soon-to-be released Senate report on the CIA doesn't assess the responsibility of former President [sic] George W. Bush or his top aides for any of the abuses of the agency's detention and interrogation program, avoiding a full public accounting of one of the darkest chapters of the war on of terror. "This report is not about the White House. It's not about the president. It's not about criminal liability. It's about the CIA's actions or inactions," said a person familiar with the document, who asked not to be further identified because the executive summary – the only part to that will be made public – still is in the final stages of declassification. The Senate Intelligence Committee report also didn't examine the responsibility of top Bush regime lawyers in crafting the [il]legal framework that permitted the CIA to use simulated drowning called waterboarding and other interrogation methods widely described as [and are] torture, McClatchy has learned.

Panetta reveals US nuclear strike plans on N. Korea, spurs controversy 16 Oct 2014 US war plans against North Korea recently included the option of a nuclear strike, former CIA Director and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta revealed in his memoirs, triggering major controversy.

"If North Korea moved across the border, our war plans called for the senior American general on the peninsula to take command of all US and South Korea forces and defend South Korea-- including by the use of nuclear weapons, if necessary," Panetta wrote in 'Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace'.

His spokesman, Colonel Ed Thomas, offered no explanation as to why the Pentagon chose the moniker.

Doubles of CLG Newsletter a listserv technical problem; we are not sending two copies

October 16, 2014 by legitgov

And, today's obstacle is: Doubles of CLG Newsletter a listserv technical problem; we are not sending two copies By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 15 Oct 2014 Well. Because I can't get through *one day* without some useless, time-wasting issue that absorbs hours of my time, today's hindrance involves the Mailman listserv that CLG is obliged to use. Apparently, many folks are receiving two copies of each CLG Newsletter -- so that the few people who actually *receive* CLG News, sans NSA interference -- think that we are sending doubles of each newsletter. No, that is not the case. This problem involves the mail server that disseminates the CLG Newsletter. Hopefully, the problem can and will be rectified in short order. Switching gears, I realize it's too much to get anyone to help us with the Google/Yahoo blockade...but I can dream, can't I? Meanwhile, your patience and ongoing support is appreciated.
