Prime suspect in U.S. sniper shootings boasted of being CIA agent and sharpshooter

December 16, 2012 by legitgov

Here's a little jog down the Bushmaster .223 memory lane: Prime suspect in U.S. sniper shootings boasted of being CIA agent and sharpshooter (AP) 26 Oct 2002 When John Allen Muhammad's life started unraveling, he sought refuge in Antigua, living in a sparsely furnished room while he boasted of being a CIA agent and sharpshooter who could "take out a man" from a quarter of a mile (hundreds of meters). To Randy Nelson, the 41-year-old U.S. Army veteran of the Gulf War was a miracle worker who got his aging pickup truck back on the road and the bearer of gifts like blank CDs and batteries. He said they got talking about guns because Muhammad told him he was in the U.S. Army and had worked with the FBI and CIA. Muhammad was trained as a mechanic, combat engineer and specialist metal worker. He never received sniper training but qualified as an expert with the M-16. A Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle, the civilian version of the M-16, was found when he was arrested Thursday in Fredericksburg, Maryland.

Bushmaster rifle used in CT shootings was same weapon used in Washington, D.C. sniper killings in 2002

December 16, 2012 by legitgov

Bushmaster rifle used in CT shootings was same weapon used in Washington, D.C. sniper killings in 2002 --Agents visit Conn. gun shops after school massacre 16 Dec 2012 Federal agents planned to fan out to dozens of gun stores and shooting ranges across Connecticut, chasing leads they hoped would cast light on the life of [alleged] school shooter, Adam Lanza. The rifle used was a Bushmaster .223-caliber [described all day Friday as the weapon 'left on the car seat'], according to an official with knowledge of the investigation who was not authorized to speak about it and talked on condition of anonymity. The gun is commonly seen at shooting competitions and was used in a series of sniper killings in the Washington, D.C., area in 2002. Also found in the school were two handguns, a Glock 10 mm and a Sig Sauer 9 mm. [Yes, and we all know that D.C. sniper, John Allen Muhammad, was in the U.S. Army and worked for the FBI and CIA, so this is a real 'puzzler,' to say the least.]

For school security, 'This is a game-changer'

December 15, 2012 by legitgov

Ah, then came the dawn. Cui bono? The US police state. For school security, 'This is a game-changer' 15 Dec 2012 The tragedy in Connecticut will convince communities across the country to cut other spending in favor of funding greater security measures, including adding armed guards at schools, said Peter Pochowski, the former executive director of the National Association of School Safety and Law Enforcement Officers. Many states, including Illinois and Wisconsin, already have laws requiring schools to hold drills to prepare for attacks and to have crisis plans in place. But Pochowski says that won’t be considered enough... John LaSorsa, a former Secret Service agent and security consultant based in North Carolina, blamed the plague of shooting sprees on the decades-long national trend away from institutionalizing most mentally ill people. "They must be in a controlled environment with no access to the outside world," LaSorsa said.

Mrs. Clinton will not testify as scheduled before a Senate committee investigating the attack on the American diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, in September.

December 15, 2012 by legitgov

Obama administration drops appeal over Guantanamo rules 15 Dec 2012 The Obama Administration is abandoning an effort to unilaterally set ground rules governing lawyers for some prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. Last month, the Justice Department filed an appeal of a lower court judge's order blocking the administration's attempt to to set ground rules for legal interaction with prisoners who have no current legal case seeking release and who are not currently charged in a military commission. However, on Friday the Justice Department asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to allow the government to withdraw the appeal. Such motions are routinely granted.

Anthrax Drug Gets Go-Ahead from FDA

December 15, 2012 by legitgov

Heads up! Anthrax Drug Gets Go-Ahead from FDA 14 Dec 2012 The FDA has approved the monoclonal antibody raxibacumab to treat inhalational anthrax, the agency announced Friday. The agent is the first monoclonal approved under the FDA's "animal rule," which allows efficacy investigations via well-controlled animal studies in certain cases. In this case, it was because inhalational anthrax is rare and lethal. The FDA denied approval for raxibacumab 3 years ago, uncertain of the drug's added benefit over levofloxacin alone, so the manufacturer, Rockville, Md.-based Human Genome Sciences, conducted additional studies. The agency on Friday also approved raxibacumab to prevent inhalational anthrax when alternatives aren't available.

Another said he believed British officers were helping to organize the training.

Connecticut Shooter Adam Lanza: Quiet, Bright, Troubled 15 Dec 2012  Adam Lanza, the 20-year-old who killed 20 kids and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school Friday, was very bright, say neighbors and former classmates, but he was also socially awkward and deeply troubled. On Friday morning, Lanza shot his mother Nancy in the face at the home they shared in Newtown, and then drove her car to Sandy Hook Elementary School. Dressed in black combat gear, he broke a window at the school, which had recently had a new security system installed, and within minutes had shot and killed six adults and 20 schoolchildren between the ages of five and 10. The shooting stopped when Lanza [allegedly] put a bullet in his own head. Multiple weapons were found at the scene, including two semiautomatic handguns registered to his mother.

December 15, 2012 by legitgov

Oil may be seeping from Deepwater Horizon site 13 Dec 2012 CBS News has learned that BP is set to embark Thursday on the fifth day of a little-known subsea mission under Coast Guard supervision to look for any new oil leaking from the Deepwater Horizon disaster. The BP oil rig exploded in 2010, killing 11 workers and sending a total estimated 206 million gallons of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico for three months before it was capped. In September, a new oil sheen was spotted about 50 miles off the Louisiana coast. Tests confirmed the oil came from the infamous Macondo well underneath the Deepwater Horizon. BP's underwater vehicle observed oil seeping from the well's containment dome and, after a remote operation, [lied and] declared the leaks plugged on October 23. More oil continues to surface.

Attorney General Secretly Granted Government Ability to Develop and Store Dossiers on U.S. Citizens

December 15, 2012 by legitgov

Attorney General Secretly Granted Government Ability to Develop and Store Dossiers on U.S. Citizens 14 Dec 2012 In a secret government agreement granted without approval or debate from lawmakers, the U.S. attorney general recently gave the National Counterterrorism Center sweeping new powers to store dossiers on U.S. citizens, even if they are not suspected of a crime, according to a news report. Earlier this year, Attorney General Eric Holder granted the center the ability to copy entire government databases holding information on flight records, casino-employee lists, the names of Americans hosting foreign-exchange students and other data, and to store it for up to five years, even without suspicion that someone in the database has committed a crime, according to the Wall Street Journal, which broke the story. Whereas previously the law prohibited the center from storing data compilations on U.S. citizens unless they were suspected of terrorist activity or were relevant to an ongoing terrorism investigation, the new powers give the center the ability to not only collect and store vast databases of information but also to trawl through and analyze it for suspicious patterns of behavior in order to uncover activity that could launch an investigation.

U.S. bombings in Gulf War released plume of sarin gas that wind blew to American troops - study

December 15, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. bombings in Gulf War released plume of sarin gas that wind blew to American troops - study 14 Dec 2012 U.S. bombings of Iraqi munitions factories in January 1991 released a plume of sarin gas that traveled more than 300 miles to affect American troops in Saudi Arabia, although military officials claimed at the time that chemical alarms triggered by the gas were false, a study released today shows. The Jan. 18, 1991, bombings of the munitions plants in Nasiriyah and Khamisiya blew a plume of sarin gas high above a layer of cold, still air -- also called the boundary level -- and into a swift wind stream that carried the gas to Saudi Arabia, said the study conducted by researchers Robert Haley and James Tuite and published in the journal Neuroepidemiology. The gas plumes, the researchers said, can be blamed for symptoms of Gulf War illness, the mysterious ailment that has affected more than 250,000 veterans of the war.
