June 7, 2012 by legitgov

Bradley Manning defence gets report on WikiLeaks damage to US interests 06 Jun 2012 Bradley Manning, the US soldier accused of being the source of the biggest leak of state secrets in American history, has won a partial victory in his battle to force the government to disclose vital information that could help his defence. The judge presiding over his trial at Fort Meade in Maryland has ordered the US government to hand over several confidential documents relating to the massive leak to the whistleblower website WikiLeaks. In particular, the Obama administration must now disclose to Manning's lawyers some of the damage assessments it carried out into the impact of the leak on US interests around the world.

June 7, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. nuclear submarine fire linked to vacuum cleaner 06 Jun 2012 A fire that caused an estimated $400 million in damage to a U.S. Navy nuclear-powered submarine docked in Maine may have been caused by a vacuum cleaner, authorities said on Wednesday. The fire in the forward compartment - which includes crew living, command and control spaces and the torpedo room - of the USS Miami on May 23 took about 12 hours to extinguish and injured seven firefighters. "Preliminary findings indicate the fire started in a vacuum cleaner used to clean work sites at end of shift, and stored in an unoccupied space," the shipyard's public affairs office said in a release.

The hacker also said the password used for mittromney@hotmail.com was the same that secured a Dropbox account associated with Romney.

U.S. Rejected 2005 Iranian Offer Ensuring No Nuclear Weapons

June 6, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Rejected 2005 Iranian Offer Ensuring No Nuclear Weapons 05 Jun 2012 France and Germany were prepared in spring 2005 to negotiate on an Iranian proposal to convert all of its enriched uranium to fuel rods, making it impossible to use it for nuclear weapons, but Britain vetoed the deal at the insistence of the United States, according to a new account by a former top Iranian nuclear negotiator. Seyed Hossein Mousavian, who had led Iran's nuclear negotiating team in 2004 and 2005, makes clear that the reason that offer was rejected was that the George W. Bush administration refused to countenance any Iranian enrichment capability, regardless of the circumstances.

CIA director beat up his deputy in front of Obama

June 6, 2012 by legitgov

CIA director beat up his deputy in front of Obama 05 Jun 2012 Former CIA Director Michael Hayden found an unusual way to show President-elect Barack Obama how the agency's interrogation techniques worked during a December 2008 briefing: Hayden beat up his own deputy in front of the future commander-in-chief. 'Kill or Capture' is Daniel Klaidman's new book released this week... "Not long into his presentation, Hayden called [Deputy DNU, David] Shedd over. Suddenly, unexpectedly, Hayden slapped Shedd's face. Then he grabbed him by the lapels and started to shake him. He'd wanted to throw him up against the wall during the demonstration, but there were chairs in the way." This was how then-CIA Director Michael Hayden persuaded President-elect Obama to think, hey, Guantanamo prisoners might not have it so rough after all.

Israel airport security demands access to tourists' private email accounts --Several U.S. tourists report being asked by airport security personnel for access to their personal email accounts 06 Jun 2012 Israel's Shin Bet security service has been demanding access to personal email accounts of visiting tourists with Arab names, according to the testimony of three U.S. citizens who were interrogated at Ben Gurion Airport and subsequently refused entry into Israel in May... Ronit Eckstein, a spokesperson for the Israel Airports Authority, told Haaretz that the Interior Ministry is responsible for the entry of tourists to Israel, and that the security officials who interrogated the women were not employed by the Airports Authority or by Ben Gurion Airport. The Interior Ministry said in response that the security checks are the responsibility of the Shin Bet security service.

June 6, 2012 by legitgov

Democrat Barrett concedes Wisconsin recall election defeat 05 Jun 2012 Democratic challenger Tom Barrett conceded Wisconsin's recall election to Republican Governor Scott Walker on Tuesday, saying he hoped the deeply divided state would now come together. With 85 percent of the vote counted, Walker had about 55 percent of the ballots to 44 percent for Milwaukee Mayor Barrett. Barrett lost to Walker in the 2010 governor's election as well but will continue as mayor of Wisconsin's largest city, Milwaukee.

Wisconsin governor Scott Walker survives bitterly fought recall election

June 6, 2012 by legitgov

Wisconsin governor Scott Walker survives bitterly fought recall election 06 Jun 2012 Wisconsin's governor Scott Walker survived a bitterly fought recall election on Tuesday after Republican voters mobilised in huge numbers [after corpora-terrorists outspent Democrats by $27 million], propelling him to a victory that will boost Mitt Romney's run for the White House. Television networks called it for the incumbent at 11pm local time after early returns from rural counties gave him an apparently unassailable lead even as voters were still queuing to cast ballots at polling stations in Milwaukee, a Democratic stronghold. It was a devastating defeat for Democrats and union activists who had waged an 18-month campaign to oust Walker over his restrictions on collective bargaining and cutbacks of pension and health benefits of public sector workers.

June 6, 2012 by legitgov

Senate Will Investigate National Security Leaks About Terrorism 'Kill List' 05 Jun 2012 The Senate will investigate recent national security leaks to the news media in the wake of articles in The New York Times about a "kill list" for terrorists and the use of cyberweapons against Iran, a Senate official said on Tuesday. Tara Andringa, a spokeswoman for Senator Carl Levin of Michigan, the Democratic chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said it would hold hearings "pertaining to recent public reports of classified information." Ms. Andringa's comments came after Republican Senators John McCain of Arizona and Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, both called for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the leaks.

Red Cross to take new photos of Guantanamo prisoners 05 Jun 2012 The International Committee of the Red Cross is arranging with the Pentagon to take fresh photos later this year of the captives at Guantánamo for their families. U.S. Navy Rear Adm. David Woods disclosed the ongoing discussions in a letter to some Guantánamo defense lawyers included in a court filing in the USS Cole bombing case. Woods predicted that the international agency that visits prisoners and their families around the globe would be allowed to take fresh photography in October, three years after a Red Cross photographer was allowed to make the last batch of portraits.

London 2012: MI5 expects wave of terrorism warnings before Olympics

June 6, 2012 by legitgov

London 2012: MI5 expects wave of terrorism warnings before Olympics --Security service braced for deluge of unsifted intelligence tipoffs concerning Games from foreign agencies 05 Jun 2012 The Olympics has already proved a huge test for MI5, just as it has for Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist branch. With less infrastucture to rely upon, there has been a growth in the phenomenon of the "lone wolf" terrorist - homegrown self-starters... The loners are far harder to identify, but the police and MI5 are also aware of hundreds of networks in the UK and abroad, a small number of which pose a credible, if not immediate, terrorist threat.

June 6, 2012 by legitgov

Voter-suppressing robo-calls reported in Wisconsin recall 05 Jun 2012 As Wisconsin residents decide today whether [Koch brothers' troll] Gov. Scott Walker keeps his job, reports have surfaced of automated calls instructing voters who signed the recall petition that they don't need to cast a vote to oust the controversial governor. Numerous voters said they received a "robo-call" telling them "if you signed the recall petition, your job is done and you don't need to vote on Tuesday." Challenger Tom Barrett's campaign has been swift to respond to the claims of misleading information being disseminated by an unidentified group.

Black Sea Ecologists Alarmed By Dolphin Deaths

June 5, 2012 by legitgov

Black Sea Ecologists Alarmed By Dolphin Deaths 24 May 2012 Hardly a day goes by in Sochi, Russia's picturesque Black Sea resort, without a dead dolphin washing up on the beach. The dolphins started washing up along Russia's Black Sea coast several weeks ago. They have also been spotted on Ukrainian shores. Environmentalists are talking about the biggest dolphin die-off to date in the region, with an estimated 300 animals dead so far. Local authorities have made no serious attempt to investigate the deaths, saying the animals are too decayed by the time they reach the shore for laboratory tests to be conducted.

Japanese nuclear agency apologizes after comparing radiation to angry wife 05 Jun 2012 A Japanese nuclear research agency apologized after comparing the behavior of radioactive material to an angry wife during an argument with her husband.

It was using the analogy to explain the difference between radioactive material, radioactivity and radiation.

Western banks 'reaping billions from Colombian cocaine trade'

June 5, 2012 by legitgov

Western banks 'reaping billions from Colombian cocaine trade' 02 Jun 2012 The vast profits made from drug production and trafficking are overwhelmingly reaped in rich "consuming" countries - principally across Europe and in the US - rather than "producing" nations such as Colombia and Mexico, new research has revealed. And its authors claim that financial regulators in the west are reluctant to go after western banks in pursuit of the massive amount of drug money being laundered through their systems. The most far-reaching and detailed analysis to date of the drug economy in any country - in this case, Colombia - shows that 2.6% of the total street value of cocaine produced remains within the country, while a staggering 97.4% of profits are reaped by criminal syndicates, and laundered by banks, in first-world consuming countries. [That's why USociopaths won't leave Afghanistan - they want the opium routes that the Taliban virtually eliminated in 2001.]

Marines Expand Urination Video Probe 01 Jun 2012 The Marine Corps is investigating other possible misconduct by members of a battalion who drew worldwide attention when a video surfaced purporting to show them urinating on Afghan corpses, officials said Thursday. In disclosing that a follow-up probe is under way, Marine spokesman Col. Sean D. Gibson said he could not provide details of the possible misbehavior or say what prompted the decision to widen the probe. He said the follow-up began May 15 and is to be completed by mid-June. "There are indications of other possible misconduct involving the unit depicted in the video that requires another investigation," Gibson said.

AIG Chief Sees Retirement Age as High as 80 After Crisis

June 5, 2012 by legitgov

AIG Chief Sees Retirement Age as High as 80 After Crisis 04 Jun 2012 "Retirement ages will have to move to 70, 80 years old," Benmosche, who turned 68 last week, said during a weekend interview at his seaside villa in Dubrovnik, Croatia. "That would make pensions, medical services more affordable. They will keep people working longer and will take that burden off of the youth." American International Group Inc. (AIG) Chief Executive Officer Robert Benmosche said Europe's debt crisis shows governments worldwide must accept that people will have to work more years as life expectancies increase to pay for more US wars for corpora-terrorists, such as AIG.

US top court rejects Blackwater Iraq shooting appeal 04 Jun 2012 The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal by four Blackwater Worldwide security guards mercenaries who argued prosecutors made improper use of their statements to investigators in charging them with killing 14 Iraqi civilians in 2007. The justices refused to review a ruling by a U.S. appeals court in Washington, D.C., that reinstated the criminal charges against the guards for their roles in the Baghdad shooting that outraged Iraqis and strained ties between the two nations.

Military May Be Using Drones In US to Help Police

June 4, 2012 by legitgov

Military May Be Using Drones In US to Help Police --Air Force: 'A court order or warrant is not required in all circumstances.' 04 Jun 2012 A non-classified U.S. Air Force intelligence report obtained by KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO dated April 23, 2012, is helping fuel concern that video and other data inadvertently captured by Air Force drones already flying through U.S. airspace, might end up in the hands of federal or local law enforcement, doing an end-run around normal procedures requiring police to obtain court issued warrants. Data collected by drones accidentally, under the guidelines, can be kept by the military up to three months before being purged and can also be turned over to "another Department of Defense or government agency to whose function it pertains." The Air Force guidelines permit using drones domestically to assist law enforcement. [Be sure to get your Drone Hunting Permit.]

Congress Looking Happy to Reauthorize Broad, Secret Spying Powers

June 4, 2012 by legitgov

Congress Looking Happy to Reauthorize Broad, Secret Spying Powers 31 May 2012 House lawmakers of both stripes in a Thursday hearing seemed amenable to the Obama administration's request to continue giving the government broad, warrantless electronic surveillance powers over American citizens - though some suggested Americans or at least members of Congress deserved to know how many people have been caught in the dragnet. At issue is the FISA Amendments Act, expiring legislation authorizing the government to electronically eavesdrop on Americans' phone calls and e-mails without a probable-cause warrant so long as one of the parties to the communication is outside the United States. The communications may be intercepted "to acquire foreign intelligence information."

Bradley Manning lawyer in struggle to have government documents released 03 Jun 2012 The US government is in possession of 250,000 pages of documents relating to the transmission of state secrets to whistleblower website WikiLeaks, which it is refusing to disclose to defence lawyers representing the alleged source of the leaks, Bradley Manning. Manning's civilian lawyer, David Coombs, has lodged a motion with the military court that is hearing the court-martial of the US soldier. Coombs writes in the motion that the government has revealed to him in a throwaway footnote that there are 250,000 pages in its possession that relate to Manning, WikiLeaks and secret official assessments of the damage that the massive leak caused to US interests around the world.

Activists converge on Wisconsin for historic recall vote 03 Jun 2012 Political activists converged on Wisconsin on Sunday to join get-out-the-vote efforts two days before a historic recall election for Republican Governor [Koch brothers' troglodyte] Scott Walker that is seen as a test for November's presidential race. Walker enraged the labor movement last year when he eliminated most collective bargaining rights for public sector unions as part of a push to limit government and slash spending in the politically divided state. Some observers are calling the June 5 vote the second most important U.S. election of the year.
