Up to 20 prisoners have been released from Bagram prison in the past two years after giving assurances they would give up their struggle and reconcile with the government. The clandestine "strategic release" programme at the prison north of Kabul has allowed America to use prisoners as bargaining chips when trying to reach local deals with insurgents.

Not the Change Polar Bears Need: President Obama's Polar Bear Extinction Plan

May 8, 2012 by legitgov

Not the Change Polar Bears Need: President Obama's Polar Bear Extinction Plan --President Obama's 'Polar Bear Extinction Plan' has a disturbing history. By Kassie Siegel 07 May 2012 Polar bears are in deep trouble. Without help, more than two-thirds of these amazing animals, including all the polar bears in Alaska, will likely be gone by 2050 -- driven off the planet by diminishing sea ice. So it boggles the mind that the Obama administration recently announced plans to reissue a Bush-era regulation that sharply limits protections for polar bears under the Endangered Species Act. Unless the public speaks out forcefully, the regulation will go into effect -- and that could be the last straw for this magnificent species.

May 8, 2012 by legitgov

US-led forces intentionally killing Afghan civilians: Former PM 07 May 2012 Former Afghan Prime Minister Ahmad Shah Ahmadzai has accused the US-led forces in Afghanistan of intentionally killing civilians, Press TV reports. "Since Americans and NATO came to Afghanistan, they are killing and committing many mistakes and crimes, especially in the night raids, they are killing innocent children, men and women, not those who they want to kill," he told Press TV from Kabul on Monday. "They are doing this intentionally, unfortunately. While they say they are in favor of human rights, justice, and so on, what they are doing in Afghanistan is completely against human rights and human justice," he added.

U.S. officials say the plot involved an upgrade of the underwear bomb [Does the bomb now have spandex in it?] that failed to detonate aboard a jetliner over Detroit on Christmas 2009. This new bomb was also built to be used in a passenger's underwear but contained a more refined detonation system. The would-be suicide bomber was told to buy a ticket on the airliner of his choosing and decide the timing of the attack. It's not immediately clear what happened to the would-be bomber. [Oh. They 'lost' the 'would-be' bomber? LOL! Well, check with his handlers at Langley!]

Senator likely to be rebuffed in News Corp inquiry 04 May 2012 The British judicial inquiry investigating questionable reporting practices by Rupert Murdoch's media properties is unlikely to cooperate with a prominent senator's request for evidence of misconduct in the United States, three people familiar with the inquiry said.

Jay Rockefeller, chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, on Wednesday sent a letter to Leveson asking if his inquiry has uncovered any misconduct on the part of Murdoch's News Corp that occurred in the United States or violated American laws.

Morris Davis, a former colonel who was chief prosecutor when Mohammed was brought to Guantanamo in 2006, said the military commissions will be badly discredited by the use of testimony obtained from waterboarding and other "enhanced interrogation" techniques used on the accused men.

County denies Homeland Security building permit [LOL!] 04 May 2012 Monroe County officials last week denied a Tampa-based builder's request to construct a U.S. Department of Homeland Security building in Tavernier. The project was controversial from the time it became known last year. It was met with large community opposition from neighbors who did not want a federal facility with a possible prisoner holding cell to be built in the historic Upper Keys district. If approved, the 10,316-square-foot building would have housed agents with Homeland Security's Investigative Division and U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Marine Unit.

Heads up! USociopaths are attacking themselves again so they can blame Anonymous and/or Iran and pass psycho CISPA: Alerts say major cyber attack aimed at gas pipeline industry --Intrusions aimed at control systems, agency of Homeland Security warns 06 May 2012 A major cyber attack is currently under way aimed squarely at computer networks belonging to US natural gas pipeline companies, according to alerts issued to the industry by the US Department of Homeland Security. At least three confidential "amber" alerts – the second most sensitive next to "red" – were issued by DHS beginning March 29, all warning of a "gas pipeline sector cyber intrusion campaign" against multiple pipeline companies. But the wave of cyber attacks, which apparently began four months ago – and may also affect Canadian natural gas pipeline companies [Yeah, right!] – is continuing. That fact was reaffirmed late Friday in a public, albeit less detailed, "incident response" report from the Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT), an arm of DHS based in Idaho Falls.

N.R.C. Skimps on Financial Oversight, Audit Says 06 Apr 2012 The government does a poor job of estimating what it will cost to tear down a nuclear reactor, Congressional auditors say, and it may not be overseeing plant owners well enough to assure that they set aside enough money to do the job. For a study it plans to issue on Monday, the Government Accountability Office scrutinized 12 of the nation's 104 power reactors and found that for 5 of them, the decommissioning cost calculated by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission was 76 percent or less of what the reactor's owner thought would be needed.

Socialist François Hollande wins French presidency 06 May 2012 Socialist François Hollande defeated conservative incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy on Sunday to become France's next president, heralding a change in how Europe tackles its debt crisis and how France flexes its military and diplomatic muscle around the world.

Exuberant crowds filled the Place de la Bastille, the iconic plaza of the French Revolution, to celebrate Hollande's victory. He will be France's first leftist chief of state since François Mitterrand was president from 1981 to 1995.
