Netanyahu asked Panetta to approve sale of bunker-busting bombs, U.S. official says

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Netanyahu asked Panetta to approve sale of bunker-busting bombs, U.S. official says 06 Mar 2012 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu requested the United States approve the sale of advanced refueling aircraft as well as GBU-28 bunker-piercing bombs to Israel during a recent meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, a top U.S. official said on Tuesday. The American official said that U.S. President Barack Obama instructed Panetta to work directly with Defense Minister Ehud Barak on the matter, indicating that the U.S. administration was inclined to look favorably upon the request as soon as possible. During the administration of former U.S. President [sic] George Bush, the U.S. refused to sell bunker-penetrating bombs and refueling aircrafts to Israel, as a result of American estimates that Israel would then use them to strike Iran's nuclear facilities. Following Obama's entrance into the White House, however, the United States approves a string of Israeli requests to purchase advance armament.

Netanyahu in AIPAC speech: Israel cannot afford to wait much longer on Iran 06 Mar 2012 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking at the AIPAC conference in Washington on Monday, called on the international community to acknowledge the fact that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. Netanyahu reiterated the fact that Israel reserves its right to protect itself. He added that for Israel all options remain on the table. "I will never gamble with the security of Israel," he explained. Netanyahu warned of the dangers of a nuclear Iran. "A nuclear-armed Iran would dramatically increase terrorism by giving terrorists a nuclear umbrella," he said. [What about the dangers of a nuclear-armed Israel?]

Kaptur defeats Kucinich in battle for new Ohio congressional district 06 Mar 2012 Veteran U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur defeated Rep. Dennis Kucinich on Tuesday in a closely watched Democratic battle in a newly drawn congressional district linking Toledo and Cleveland along the Lake Erie shoreline. The redrawing of the 9th district meant at least one of their political careers representing northern Ohio in Congress would end Tuesday night. Kucinich conceded defeat shortly after midnight, accusing Kaptur of running "a campaign lacking integrity, filled with false truths."

Romney Appears the Ohio Winner; Santorum Strong

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Romney Appears the Ohio Winner; Santorum Strong 07 Mar 2012 Mitt Romney appeared to pull off a narrow victory in Ohio on Super Tuesday but lost several other states to Rick Santorum, a split verdict that overshadowed Mr. Romney's claim of collecting the most delegates and all but ensured another round of intense infighting on the road to the Republican presidential nomination. The result came at the end of a long night that put Mr. Romney that much farther ahead in the race for the nomination, but dashed any hopes he had of using the day to assert himself as the inevitable nominee. Far from bringing more clarity to the race as some in the party had hoped, Tuesday's elections gave every candidate cause to keep driving forward -- including Newt Gingrich, who won a definitive victory in Georgia. [How does Karl Rove know who's going to win every time? --MDR Mitt Romney/Karl Rove are poised to steal Ohio in the same counties that Bush stole in 2004. --LRP]

Santorum draws conservatives in Ohio GOP contest

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Santorum draws conservatives in Ohio GOP contest 06 Mar 2012 Rick Santorum was drawing robust support Tuesday from the most conservative voters in Ohio's Republican presidential primary, according to early results of an exit poll of voters. He was also managing a modest lead over rival Mitt Romney among the state's blue-collar voters, whom he has targeted in his drive to slow Romney's march toward the GOP nomination. Ohio was the most closely watched of the 10 states holding Super Tuesday presidential contests.

Assad determined to fight 'foreign-backed terrorism'

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Assad determined to fight 'foreign-backed terrorism' 06 Mar 2012 Syria's president defied mounting international pressure to end the year-old crackdown on an [Western-backed] uprising against him and said Tuesday he was determined to go on fighting what he called [and is] "foreign-backed terrorism." After a powerful American senator called for airstrikes on Syria, President Barack Obama said unilateral U.S. military action against President Bashar Assad's government would be a mistake. The United States said it is proposing a new United Nations Security Council resolution demanding an end to violence in Syria, first by government forces and then by opposition fighters. Russia and China, powerful allies that have blocked a Security Council resolution against Syria, made clear they were still standing by the government in Damascus.

Rush Limbaugh loses 27 advertisers

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Rush Limbaugh loses 27 advertisers 06 Mar 2012 At least 27 companies have pulled their ads from the "The Rush Limbaugh Show" since the conservative talk show host called a law student a "slut" on the air last week, as the social media blitz against the popular radio program showed no signs of slowing down Tuesday. Companies are continuing to join the rapidly growing list of businesses that have ceased advertising on Limbaugh's show, responding to the flood of grievances that are pouring in from disgruntled customers.

Super Tuesday primaries: Mitt Romney wins three; Rick Santorum takes Tennessee, Oklahoma

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Super Tuesday primaries: Mitt Romney wins three; Rick Santorum takes Tennessee, Oklahoma 06 Mar 2012 Three Super Tuesday victories put Mitt Romney tantalizingly close to a string of primary results that would give him a stronger claim on the GOP nomination, and for the first time open a significant gap between the former Massachusetts governor and his 2012 opponents. But Ohio, perhaps the most important symbolic prize of the evening, remained too close to call and a virtual dead heat between Romney and Rick Santorum... Caucusing continues in North Dakota, Idaho and Alaska. With 13 percent of precincts reporting in the Buckeye State, Santorum was winning 38.4 percent of Ohio voters to Romney's 36.6 percent.

Santorum wins Tennessee, Oklahoma; Ohio too close to call, as Super Tuesday ballot count continues

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Santorum wins Tennessee, Oklahoma; Ohio too close to call, as Super Tuesday ballot count continues 06 Mar 2012 Former US senator Rick Santorum notched victories in the Republican presidential primaries in Oklahoma and Tennessee tonight, giving his campaign for the nomination a needed boost, but the closely-watched Ohio race remained too close to call. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney won the Virginia, Vermont, and Massachusetts primaries, while former House speaker Newt Gingrich won in his political home state of Georgia and vowed to continue his campaign. Santorum had led in numerous polls in Tennessee, a pivotal state with a history of electing establishment and somewhat more moderate Republicans. But the most recent surveys showed Romney and Gingrich gaining strength.

Britain admits funding Syria rebels

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Britain admits funding Syria rebels 06 Mar 2012 The UK government has acknowledged that it has provided an extra GBP 2 million to the Western-backed rebels fighting the popular government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Prime Minister David Cameron told a hearing at the House of Commons Liaison Committee on Tuesday afternoon that his government provided cash and equipment to foreign-backed rebels in Syria under such names as 'aid agencies' operating on the ground to help deliver emergency medical supplies and food. The acknowledgement is yet another proof that the rebellion in the Middle Eastern Arab country has its root somewhere in Britain and France.

STRATFOR email on Assange refers to 'switching him off'

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

STRATFOR email on Assange refers to 'switching him off' --The accepted culture at Stratfor includes sharing advice about how to take control of informants 'by means of financial, sexual or psychological control'. Assange Counts Down to Sweden 07 Mar 2012 Julian Assange has worn an electronic manacle for 454 days. Every day for 454 days he has signed in at a police station. Every night for 454 nights Serco has ensured he is home by 10pm, monitoring him in a fixed location for a required 10 hours, an equivalent of 225 days in prison. These bail conditions are maintained in the absence of any charge being laid against him - or even a decision to prosecute. They were set after an Interpol Red Notice was issued for Assange's arrest. Gaddafi attracted an orange notice around the same time. The emails about Assange and Wikileaks are vicious; one little charmer refers to "switching him off", that is, murder. Others lament when Assange is not killed in a car accident and joke, "Screw the terrorist. He'll be eating cat food forever... Assange is going to make a nice bride in prison". Their language and suggestions are sadistic and their strategy reads like spooky prophecy because Stratfor's advice is being taken.

US, Israeli hackers fail in their effort to take down Press TV

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

US, Israeli hackers fail in their effort to take down Press TV [Press TV needs to *return the favor.*] 06 Mar 2012 A recent cyber attack launched by US and Israeli hackers against the website of Iran's 24-hour English-language news channel, Press TV, has failed to take down the website. According to the Press TV report, the attack against the website took place from 14:00 on March 5 to 04:00 local time on March 6. However, the effective security countermeasures taken by the Press TV technical team foiled the cyber attack on the website. This is not the first cyber attack on Press TV. A similar attack was launched on the website on February 18, from 07:50 to 10:05 local time, which also failed.

Five arrested in high-profile cyberattacks

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Five arrested in high-profile cyberattacks 06 Mar 2012 Top members of the computer hacker group "Anonymous" and its offshoots were arrested and charged Tuesday after a wide-ranging investigation used the help of a group leader who was working as a secret government informant. Five of the suspects, considered by investigators among the "most sophisticated hackers in the world," were arrested in the United States and Europe and charged in a Manhattan federal court over their alleged role in high-profile cyberattacks against government agencies and large companies, according to an indictment. A sixth man, Hector Xavier Monsegur, a notorious hacker known as "Sabu," pleaded guilty in August to computer hacking and other crimes.

International hacking group LulzSec brought down by own leader

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

International hacking group LulzSec brought down by own leader --'They caught him and he was secretly arrested and now works for the FBI.' 06 Mar 2012 Law enforcement agents on two continents swooped in on top members of the infamous computer hacking group LulzSec early this morning, and acting largely on evidence gathered by the organization's brazen leader -- who sources say has been secretly working for the government for months -- arrested three and charged two more with conspiracy. The offshoot of the loose network of hackers, Anonymous, believed to have caused billions of dollars in damage to governments, international banks and corporations, was allegedly led by a man FoxNews.com has identified as Hector Xavier Monsegur. After the FBI unmasked Monsegur [working under the Internet alias 'Sabu'] last June, he became a cooperating witness, sources told FoxNews.com. "They caught him and he was secretly arrested and now works for the FBI," a source close to Sabu told FoxNews.com. Monsegur pleaded guilty Aug. 15 to 12 hacking-related charges and information documenting his admissions was unsealed in Southern District Court on Tuesday.

Top Republican publishes full ACTA text for public look-see --'Secret negotiations not the American way' 06 Mar 1012 Republican congressman Darrell Issa of California has published the full text of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), saying that the public has a right to know what their governments have been hiding from them. "ACTA represents as great a threat to an open Internet as SOPA and PIPA and was drafted with even less transparency and input from digital citizens," Issa said in a statement. Negotiations on ACTA started under President [sic] Bush the Younger, and have been carried on by the current administration. [Of course they have. Obusha hasn't deviated one iota from the previous regime, and in most situations (NDAA, killer drone attacks) has moved farther to the right than Bush. For some reason, he gets a 'pass.' --LRP]

LulzSec boss Hector Monsegur was working for us - FBI --Monsegur, aka Sabu, turned by FBI last June --'We're chopping off the head of LulzSec' 07 Mar 2012 Police on two continents swooped on top members of computer hacking group LulzSec early today, and acting largely on evidence gathered by the organisation's leader - who sources say has been secretly working for the government for months - arrested three and charged two more with conspiracy. Charges against four of the five were based on a conspiracy case filed in New York federal court. An indictment charging the suspects, who include two men from Great Britain, two from Ireland and an American from Chicago, is expected to be unsealed today in the Southern District of New York. "This is devastating to the organisation," an FBI official involved with the investigation said. "We're chopping off the head of LulzSec." [We'll see.]

Mega barf alert: New DHS Advisory Council to 'make academic community aware of their surroundings' 06 Mar 2012 Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano appointed University of Montana President Royce Engstrom to a newly formed council on Thursday. The Homeland Security Advisory Council is comprised of 19 university and college heads from around the country. The council will advise the department on a wide range of issues -- from how the DHS can better recruit [spies] from campuses to emergency preparedness. "It is an opportunity to have a conversation about how education can be involved in national security," UM Vice President Jim Foley said. A DHS spokesperson said the council is not about monitoring students and professors, but is about "making the academic community aware of their surroundings."

Thirteen French officers captured by Syrian Army

Thirteen French officers captured by Syrian Army 05 Mar 2012 Thirteen French officers have been captured by Syrian forces according to the Lebanon-based Daily Star newspaper, the first mainstream media outlet to report on rumours of Western troops on the ground. The French foreign ministry dismissed the report, however, telling the Daily Telegraph that not a single French soldier is on Syrian soil. But the defence ministry was less categorical, saying it neither confirmed nor denied the claim. A photographer who recently escaped from the besieged Syrian city of Homs also dismissed suggestions French soldiers had intervened to secure his evacuation and that of three other Western reporters.

Kasich turns down federal disaster aid

Kasich turns down federal disaster aid 03 Mar 2012 Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R-Sociopath) said thanks but no thanks to immediate federal disaster relief Saturday, even as governors in Indiana and Kentucky welcomed the help. Kasich did not rule out asking for assistance later, but his decision means tornado-ravaged towns in Ohio will not get federal aid now and are not eligible at this time for potentially millions of dollars in payments and loans. The governor said Ohio can respond to the crisis without federal help and he would not ask federal authorities to declare the region a disaster area.

Well funded Houston homeless service organizations, developers, and city officials are promoting new regulations for dozens of groups like ours that provide food for the homeless in Houston every week. Wednesday March 7, at the 9am session, Houston City Council will consider amending chapter 20 of the code of ordinances, imposing five new regulatory and licensing requirements for those who feed hungry people in Houston. These regulations would bring the work of non-professionals who do homeless service work under city and police purview. [See action list.]

Obama shifts location of G-8 summit from Chicago to Camp David --White House national security spokesman: Security and the possibility of protests were not factors in the decision. [Not much.] 05 Mar 2012 The White House abruptly announced Monday that it had scuttled plans to hold the upcoming G-8 economic summit in Chicago, and would instead host world leaders at the presidential retreat at Camp David in Maryland. It was an unusually late location change for a large and highly scripted international summit and came with little explanation from the White House. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel - the former White House chief of staff who personally lobbied President Barack Obama to hold the summit in Chicago - was informed only hours before the official announcement.

Holder: Constitution doesn't cover terrorists

Holder: Constitution doesn't cover terrorists 05 Mar 2012 In his most forceful defense yet of the Obama regime's use of lethal force against U.S. citizens linked to terrorism, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday that the Constitution does not protect U.S. suspects plotting to kill other Americans. Holder said in a speech at the Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago that the government is within its rights to kill citizens who are senior leaders in al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] or affiliate groups who pose an "imminent threat" of attack against the USA and whose capture is "not feasible." [OMG! MSNBC is still obsessed with Rush Limbaugh instead of Obama's assertion he can kill US citizens on a whim. Unbelievable.]

US plans to legally justify targeted killings of Americans 05 Mar 2012 The Obama administration is set to offer legal backing for the targeted killing of American citizens suspected of involvement in terrorist activities against the United States overseas. The underpinning legal principles of the issue will be discussed by US Attorney General Eric Holder at Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago on Monday afternoon. This is while Defense Department lawyer Jeh Johnson claimed earlier in February that the US pursued legitimate military targets overseas and rejected allegations that the US was engaged in assassinations.

Santorum says he'd be well ahead if he had Romney's money

Santorum says he'd be well ahead if he had Romney's money 05 Mar 2012 With hours remaining until the polls open in this crucial state, Rick Santorum said Monday no one expected him to last this long into the Republican presidential contest, but that a combination of hard work and a consistent conservative message has allowed him to compete despite being massively outspent by rival Mitt Romney. Santorum said if his resources were equal with Romney's, he would be running away with the race, but that such a scenario was irrelevant because the GOP nominee will not be able to outspend President Obama in the general election. Santorum said his family is sacrificing financially because he gave up lucrative work to run for president.

This shows the might of Iran and the complete preparedness of this force, he added. Commenting on the recent Velayat 90 naval drill, the Iranian commander said the military exercises were a turning point in the country's show of might and security.

'One in 5 Britons borrow to buy food' 05 Mar 2012 A new survey has found that one in five Britons are borrowing money to buy food requirements from groceries amid a jump in the costs of living. The survey by consumer group 'Which' showed that 43 percent of consumers feel they can afford to live on their income, while 36 percent admitted to finding things difficult - twice the proportion who were struggling in 2006. One in four said they have had to dip into their savings to buy food or other daily essentials, while 19 percent have gone into debt to do this, according to the survey.

Alan Colmes Blasts Pro-Israel Media Pushing for Iran War

Alan Colmes Blasts Pro-Israel Media Pushing for Iran War By Lori Price, http://www.legitgov.org/ 05 Mar 2012 On Fox News program 'Happening Now,' liberal political commentator and radio host Alan Colmes participated Monday in a discussion on whether or not a 'liberal media' exists. Colmes noted that Dick Cheney daughter Liz Cheney and former George W. Bush recess-appointed UN Ambassador John Bolton were 'all over' the media, a 'new generation' of former Iraq war hawks now pushing for war on Iran. Conservative counterpart Cal Thomas responded that Cheney and Bolton were mere voices in the discourse and not media institutions such as CBS News, and therefore did not share the same media heft. Colmes asserted that rather than a so-called liberal bias, it is an omnipresent pro-Israel media bias that dominates the media landscape. "You have a pro-Israel media out there that supports anything Israel does. It's almost anathema in the media to say anything against what the government of Israel says." [I wonder how many days before he's fired?]

U.S. court approves warrantless searches of cell phones

March 5, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. court approves warrantless searches of cell phones 01 Mar 2012 U.S. police can search a cell phone for its number without having a warrant, according to a federal appeals court ruling. Officers in Indiana found a number of cell phones at the scene of a drug bust, and searched each phone for its telephone number... The U.S. Court of Appeal for the 7th Circuit rejected that [warrantless search] argument on Wednesday, finding that the invasion of privacy was so slight that the police's actions did not violate the Fourth Amendment's ban on unreasonable searches. The case gave the court an occasion to examine just how far police can go when it comes to searching electronic gadgets.
