Nuclear plants pose risks to drinking water for Illinois 25 Jan 2012 The drinking water for 652,000 people in Illinois could be at risk of radioactive contamination from a leak or accident at a local nuclear power plant, says a new study released Jan. 24 by the Illinois Public Interest Research Group Education Fund (Illinois PIRG). Brian Imus, Illinois PIRG state director, explained: "The danger of nuclear power is too close to home. Nuclear power plants in Illinois pose a risk to drinking water for more than 600,000 Illinoisans. An accident like the one in Fukushima, Japan, or a leak could spew cancer-causing radioactive waste into our drinking water."

U.N. rights chief shocked at numerous Iraq executions 24 Jan 2012 The top United Nations human rights official criticized Iraq on Tuesday for carrying out a large number of executions, including 34 on a single day last week, and voiced concern about due process and the fairness of trials. "Even if the most scrupulous fair trial standards were observed, this would be a terrifying number of executions to take place in a single day," U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said, in a statement referring to executions carried out on January 19. At least 63 people are believed to have been executed since mid-November in Iraq, where the death penalty can be imposed for some 48 crimes including a number related to non-fatal crimes such as damage to public property, Pillay said.

Israel jails Palestinian parliament speaker without trial --More than 300 Palestinians are held in 'administrative detention' under the Israeli military system, without charge or trial, on security grounds. 24 Jan 2012 An Israeli military court has ordered the speaker of the Palestinian legislative body to be jailed for six months without trial after he was arrested at a checkpoint last week. Aziz Dweik, a member of Hamas and a senior elected politician, was imprisoned "without charge or legal justification", a statement from his office said. It claimed Israel was attempting to thwart moves towards reconciliation between the rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas. Dweik was arrested at a checkpoint near Ramallah last Thursday. According to reports, he was handcuffed and blindfolded by Israeli soldiers, who said he was being detained for "involvement in terrorist activities".

TEPCO to shut down another reactor, to leave only 1 in service 25 Jan 2012 The No. 5 reactor at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear plant in Niigata Prefecture will be suspended for scheduled checkups in the early hours of Wednesday, leaving only one out of a total of 17 reactors run by Tokyo Electric Power Co. in service, the utility said.

Fallout from Fukushima No. 1 on rise 25 Jan 2012 The amount of radioactive materials released from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant has risen this month compared with December, Tepco said. The amount so far has come to 70 million becquerels per hour, compared with 60 million becquerels in December, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday, adding that the increase is attributable to the displacement of radioactive materials that had settled on facilities and equipment as a result of work conducted near reactors 2 and 3.

Japan task force kept no records of nuclear crisis response 24 Jan 2012 Japan's energy minister admitted on Tuesday that no records were kept of top level discussions in the critical early days on how to respond to the world's worst nuclear disaster in 25 years. The admission, and apology, by Trade Minister Yukio Edano comes in the face of widespread debate over the government's response to the Fukushima nuclear crisis triggered by events last March. A government task force was set up by then-Prime Minister Naoto Kan to deal with the nuclear disaster. Its failure to keep records emerged after public broadcaster NHK sought details of its discussions.

The ruling came after a surprise statement by Staff Sgt Frank Wuterich that he never fired his weapon at any women or children. As part of a deal that stopped his manslaughter trial Monday, Wuterich faces no more than three months in confinement for the lesser charge.

Russia rejects sanctions against Iran 23 Jan 2012 Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has rejected unilateral sanctions against Iran, saying such sanctions would be counterproductive.

January 24, 2012 by legitgov

BP exempted from US ban on Iran oil 23 Jan 2012 BP Plc, UK, and EU have reportedly convinced US lawmakers to exempt a BP-led project from the newly-proposed Washington sanctions on Iran. This is a clear indication that the West is pushing for stricter embargoes on Tehran without harming its own economy. US senators have discussed provisions that could bar companies like BP from working with the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), Reuters quoted one congressional aide as saying on Monday. The project, known as Shah Deniz, is a USD20 billion enterprise in the Caspian Sea off Azerbaijan, in which the Iranian state-owned oil company Naftiran Intertrade Co., an NIOC subsidiary, holds a 10% stake.

Hacker infiltrates Twitter account of Senator Chuck Grassley, PIPA sponsor 23 Jan 2012 The official Twitter account for Chuck Grassley, a Republican senator from Iowa, was hacked Monday by someone who used the account to urge supporters to vote against pending bills that would increase regulation on Internet use. Grassley is one of the original co-sponsors of the Protect Intellectual Property Act, and he supports the Stop Internet Privacy Act in the House. The bills, known as PIPA and SOPA, have stirred an uproar among many technologists and Internet users. "Vote against ACTA, SOP, and PIPA, because this man, Chuck Grassley, wants YOUR internet censored," one of the tweets said. Another said, "Chuck is a supporter of SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA, meaning he wants no privacy for private accounts."

US Supremes: GPS tracking requires warrant --'Stop! In the name of the 4th Amendment...' 24 Jan 2012 The US Supreme Court has ruled unanimously that police need to request a warrant before attaching GPS tracking devices to suspects' cars. "We decide whether the attachment of a Global-Positioning-System (GPS) tracking device to an individual’s vehicle, and subsequent use of that device to monitor the vehicle’s movements on public streets, constitutes a search or seizure within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment," the judgment reads. Their decision - after extensive hearings - was, at core, "Yes".

All had a history of violence against animals, he said in an op-ed piece published by McClatchy Newspapers. He said a history of cruelty to animals regularly shows in the FBI records of serial rapists and murderers. And citing a Northeastern University and the Massachusetts SPCA study, he said that people who abuse animals are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against humans.

Costs Soar for New War Supply Routes

Mission accomplished! US mercenaries and other corpora-terrorists continue to make a killing on the killing: Costs Soar for New War Supply Routes 20 Jan 2012 The U.S. is paying six times as much to send war supplies to troops in Afghanistan through alternate routes after Pakistan's punitive decision in November to close border crossings to NATO convoys, the Associated Press has learned. Islamabad shut down two key Pakistan border crossings after a U.S. airstrike killed two dozen Pakistani soldiers in late November, and it is unclear when the crossings might reopen. Pentagon figures provided to the AP show it is now costing about $104 million per month to send the supplies through a longer northern route. That is $87 million more per month than when the cargo moved through Pakistan.

Former CIA officer charged in alleged leaks

Former CIA officer charged in alleged leaks --Legal experts: Kiriakou is the sixth target of a leaks-related prosecution since President Obama took office, exceeding the total number of comparable prosecutions under all previous administrations combined. 23 Jan 2012 The 'Justice' Department on Monday charged a former CIA officer with repeatedly leaking classified information, including the identities of agency operatives involved in the capture and interrogation of alleged terrorists. The case against John Kiriakou, who also served as a senior Senate aide, extends the Obama administration's crackdown on disclosures of national security secrets. Kiriakou, who was among the first to go public with details about the CIA's use of water-boarding and other harsh interrogation torture measures, was charged with disclosing classified information to reporters and lying to the agency about the origin of other sensitive material he published in a book. He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted. [So, Obama charges the (alleged) leakers but not the waterboarders? Obama has out-Bushed Bush, six ways to Sunday. Do you comprehend that fact, MSNBC pundits?]

Rand Paul on TSA detainment: "I was barked at: 'Do not leave the cubicle!'"

Rand Paul on TSA detainment: "I was barked at: 'Do not leave the cubicle!'" 23 Jan 2012 Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul told The Daily Caller that being "detained" by the Transportation Security Administration at the Nashville airport Monday was a major ordeal that underscores flaws in TSA's procedures that affect tens of millions of passengers every year. The White House, through spokesman Jay Carney, defended the TSA's actions during Monday's press briefing by arguing that Paul wasn't technically "detained." "Let's be clear," Carney said. "The passenger was not detained. He was escorted out of the area by local law-enforcement."

French soldiers die because of urination video 22 Jan 2012 An attack on French soldiers on Friday at a base in eastern Afghanistan, may have been enacted due to the indiscretion of US allies. Four French troops were shot by an Afghan soldier who was assisting them in the field. Fifteen other French troops were wounded when the Afghan soldier opened fire on the unarmed men. According to AFP, the Afghan soldier said he shot the men in the wake of a recent video showing US Marines urinating on the dead bodies of Taliban insurgents and also because British soldiers had been filmed abusing Afghan children.

Britain, US and France send warships through Strait of Hormuz

Britain, US and France send warships through Strait of Hormuz --The flotilla will have passed within a few miles of the Iranian coastline. 23 Jan 2012 Britain, America and France delivered a pointed signal to Iran, sending six warships led by a 100,000 ton aircraft carrier through the highly sensitive waters of the Strait of Hormuz. This deployment coincided with an escalation in the West's confrontation with Iran over the country's [alleged] nuclear ambitions. The three countries retain a permanent military presence in the Gulf, but a joint passage through the Strait of Hormuz by all of their respective navies is highly unusual.

Internet mogul Kim Dotcom denies internet piracy in New Zealand court 23 Jan 2012 Kim Dotcom, the internet mogul accused by the FBI of earning $175m (£112m) in illegal profits through file-sharing site Megaupload.com, has denied internet piracy in a New Zealand court. A judge in North Shore declined to release the German national on bail after prosecutors argued the 38-year old, also known as Kim Schmitz, was a flight risk "at the extreme end of the scale" because it was believed he had access to funds, had multiple identities and had a history of fleeing criminal charges. Dotcom was arrested at his leased country estate in New Zealand on Saturday at the request of the FBI, which has charged him in a Virginia court with racketeering, copyright infringement and money laundering and is seeking his extradition.
