'Muslims' Movie Producer Was Federal Informant

September 16, 2012 by legitgov

'Muslims' Movie Producer Was Federal Informant --'I decide to cooperate with the government.' 14 Sep 2012 Before he was involved in the making of a noxious video that provided an excuse for anti-American riots in the Middle East, and before he was convicted of federal bank fraud, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was arrested on charges relating to the making of phencyclidine (PCP). In recent days, we've learned that Nakoula used 14 different aliases in a complex check kiting scheme. We've learned that Nakoula was sentenced to 21 months in federal custody for the affair. According to The Smoking Gun, Nakoula was released from the United States Penitentiary in Lompoc, California in September, 2010... The punishment was relatively gentle, even though it wasn't Nakoula's first encounter with the law. That's because Nakoula had decided to become a federal informant.

Afghanistan: Six killed by insiders, insurgents blow up $180m in jets --Green-on-blue attacks in Afghanistan have killed at least 51 international troops this year. 16 Sep 2012 At least six coalition soldiers were killed in Afghanistan this weekend in two separate incidents where members of the Afghan security forces turned their weapons against international forces. In Afghanistan’s southern Zabul province, four coalition soldiers were reportedly killed by a group of Afghan police who turned their weapons on international troops. The other incident occurred on Saturday and left two British soldiers dead. News of the latest so-called "green-on-blue" killings adds to what has become a serious and lethal trend confronting international forces here.

The coalition says it believes only insurgents were hit. But villagers from Alingar district in the remote Laghman province, east of Kabul, brought the bodies to the governor's office in the provincial capital, said Sarhadi Zewak, a spokesman for the provincial government. "They were shouting 'death to America' They were condemning the attack," Zewak said. Seven females were taken to area hospitals, some as young as 10, said provincial health director Latif Qayumi.

Sudan rejects addition of Marines at US Embassy 15 Sep 2012 Sudan has rejected a U.S. request to send a platoon of Marines to bolster security at the U.S. embassy outside Khartoum, the state news agency SUNA said on Saturday. Earlier Saturday, a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to disclose details on the troop movement, said Sudan's objection held up the deployment of 50 Marines. A U.S. official said the Marines had already set off for Khartoum but had been called back pending further discussions with Sudan.

September 16, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. orders embassy staff to leave Tunis, Khartoum 15 Sep 2012 The United States ordered non-essential staff to leave its embassies in Tunisia and Sudan on Saturday after both diplomatic posts were attacked and Khartoum rejected a U.S. request to send a platoon of Marines to bolster security at its mission there. "Given the security situation in Tunis and Khartoum, the U.S. State Department has ordered the departure of all family members and non-emergency personnel from both posts, and issued parallel travel warnings to American citizens," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement. The U.S. embassies in Tunis and Khartoum were attacked on Friday by protesters infuriated by a widely disseminated anti-Islamic film, made in the United States, that insults the Prophet Mohammad.

September 16, 2012 by legitgov

FBI arrest suspect over 'bomb plot' --The device he planted was provided to him by undercover federal agents [as usual]. 16 Sep 2012 An 18-year-old man has been arrested in Chicago on suspicion of plotting a bomb attack. Adel Daoud, said to be a US citizen of Arab descent, was caught in an FBI sting operation. Agents allege he was attempting to detonate what he thought was a car bomb outside a city centre bar. He has been charged with trying to use a weapon of mass destruction and trying to blow up a building, though the device that he planted was a bogus provided to him by undercover federal agents posing as extremists.

Armada of British naval power massing in the Gulf as Israel prepares an Iran strike 15 Sep 2012 An armada of US and British naval power is massing in the Persian Gulf in the belief that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike against Iran's 'covert nuclear weapons programme.' Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war... In preparation for any pre-emptive or retaliatory action by Iran, warships from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will today begin an annual 12-day exercise.

FBI Clears Halliburton Crew in Loss of Radioactive Tool --Austin National Guard team joins FBI, locals in hunt for radioactive drilling rod 14 Sep 2012 Halliburton Co. crew members who lost a radioactive rod used in drilling wells in West Texas weren't guilty of criminal conduct, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said as a hunt for the tool entered a fourth day. FBI officials working with the Texas Department of Transportation questioned three employees who were unable to locate the device this week after it went missing on a 130-mile (209-kilometer) route from Pecos to Odessa, according to a Nuclear Regulatory Commission incident report today. A National Guard unit based in Austin sent a three-person team with detection gear yesterday to assist local officials, said Amy Cook, a spokeswoman for the Guard.

Anti-U.S. fury widens in Muslim world as protests rage in many countries 15 Sep 2012 From Tunis to Cairo to Jakarta, Indonesia, the Muslim world erupted in protests aimed at the United States on Friday as anger over a video that mocks the prophet Muhammad [and US imperialism that kills, maims and displaces millions while claiming contracts on their oil] boiled over into assaults on embassies or demonstrations in nearly two dozen countries.

Without final contract, Chicago Teachers Union pushes for end to strike

September 15, 2012 by walden9

Without final contract, Chicago Teachers Union pushes for end to strike 15 Sep 2012 The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) is pushing for a rapid end to the strike of 36,000 teachers along lines dictated by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Even though a contract has not yet been finalized, the CTU has indicated it is hoping to send teachers back to work on Monday. The union is seeking to end the strike even though the teachers have won widespread support from workers in Chicago and throughout the country. A rally planned for Saturday is expected to attract tens of thousands of people, with buses arriving from other states...In other words, the CTU has agreed to massive concessions but does not want to reveal them without carefully packaging them together with supposed "victories."

Anti-US protests rage across the Middle East

September 15, 2012 by walden9

Anti-US protests rage across the Middle East 15 Sep 2012 Angry anti-US protests, including the storming of embassies, continued for a fourth day Friday from Indonesia to Morocco. Sparked by a rabidly anti-Islamic video posted on YouTube, the demonstrations have seen clashes with security forces leading to over a dozen deaths across several countries. While the crude video produced by Christian right elements and obviously intended as a provocation has provided the trigger for these upheavals, underlying them is deep-seated anger over the wars and oppression inflicted on the region by American imperialism over decades.

Anti-American fury sweeps Middle East over film

September 15, 2012 by legitgov

Anti-American fury sweeps Middle East over film 15 Sep 2012 Fury about a film that insults the Prophet Mohammad tore across the Middle East after weekly prayers on Friday with protesters attacking U.S. embassies and burning American flags as the Pentagon rushed to bolster security at its missions. At least seven people were killed as local police struggled to repel assaults after weekly Muslim prayers in Tunisia and Sudan, while there was new violence in Egypt and Yemen and across the Muslim world, driven by emotions ranging from piety to anger at Western power to frustrations with local leaders and poverty. A Taliban attack on a base in Afghanistan that killed two Americans may also have been timed to coincide with protests.

US scrambles to rush spies, drones to Libya

US scrambles to rush spies, drones to Libya 15 Sep 2012 The U.S. is sending more spies, Marines and drones to Libya, trying to speed the search for those who killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, but the investigation is complicated by a chaotic security picture in the post-revolutionary country, and limited American and Libyan intelligence resources. The CIA has fewer people available to send, stretched thin from tracking fomenting conflicts across the Middle East, Africa and Asia. The U.S. has already deployed an FBI investigation team...

Assange gets an Aboriginal passport 15 Sep 2012 WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been offered an Aboriginal Nations passport in an inner-city Sydney ceremony after he was "abandoned" by Australian authorities. His father, John Shipton, accepted the document at a celebration in Darlington today. He said his son had been jilted by the Australian government, and the passport ceremony - which follows Ecuador's decision to grant Mr Assange diplomatic asylum - was a show of solidarity.

Feds Seek Stay of Anti-Terrorism Law Ruling in NYC

September 15, 2012 by legitgov

It's the Obusha Friday Night Civil Liberties Bad News Dump: Feds Seek Stay of Anti-Terrorism Law Ruling in NYC 15 Sep 2012 The federal government asked a judge on Friday to suspend a ruling that bars enforcement of an anti-terrorism law that she called unconstitutional in its provisions for indefinite military detention. The law allows detention of people suspected of "substantially" or "directly" providing support to groups such as al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] or the Taliban. Some journalists, scholars and political activists sued over the law, saying they feared they could end up being held for exercising First Amendment rights. Government lawyers called such concerns unfounded, but U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest said in her ruling Wednesday that she found them legitimate. In court papers filed Friday, the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan asked for a stay of the decision while the government appeals.

September 15, 2012 by legitgov

Heads up! Officials call for 'universal' flu vaccination strategy 14 Sep 2012 For the third consecutive year, state and federal health officials are advocating a "universal" vaccination strategy to combat the seasonal flu. That means that everyone, 6 months and older, should get a flu shot, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "People should get vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available," said Dr. Brooke Rossheim, director of the Rappahannock Area Health District. [US lunatics want to force pharma-terrorists' mercury-laden vaccines on us to 'fight' the pandemics they're creating for profit. (And because they're sociopaths.)]

US, Allies Set to Launch Largest Naval Exercise Ever in Middle East

September 15, 2012 by legitgov

US, Allies Set to Launch Largest Naval Exercise Ever in Middle East 13 Sep 2012 The United States and more than two dozen allies are gearing up for the largest naval exercise ever in the Middle East focused on countering the threat of anti-ship mines. The maneuvers starting next week are the latest flexing of American military muscle in and around the Persian Gulf, even as Washington tries to convince ally Israel that diplomacy and sanctions aimed at pressuring Iran to scale back its nuclear program need more time to work. U.S. Navy officials insist that the anti-mine exercise is not about any specific country or a response to 'Iranian threats' to shut the narrow Strait of Hormuz at the mouth of the Gulf, the route for one-fifth of the world's oil.

U.S. Used This Torture Box to Interrogate Gadhafi's Enemies

September 15, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Used This Torture Box to Interrogate Gadhafi's Enemies 06 Sep 2012 Two Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) members, Mohammed Ahmed Mohammed al-Shoroeiya and Khalid al-Sharif, were captured in Pakistan in 2003. After interrogations by Pakistani and U.S. personnel, they were both sent to American detention facilities that they believe were at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. There, they were "chained to walls naked - sometimes while diapered - in pitch black, windowless cells, for weeks or months at a time," Human Rights Watch alleges. Additionally, Shoroeiya and Sharif say they were "restrained in painful stress positions for long periods of time," "beaten and slammed into walls," "denied food," "denied sleep by continuous, deafeningly loud Western music" and "subjected to different forms of water torture including, in Shoroeiya's case, waterboarding." They were placed in the boxes described that contorted their bodies, while they were naked, cold and in the dark. Shoroeiya also says he was waterboarded on a board that could rotate 360 degrees; the CIA denies waterboarding him.

US Federal Reserve extends unlimited support to financial markets

September 14, 2012 by walden9

US Federal Reserve extends unlimited support to financial markets 14 Sep 2012 It is a measure of the deepening crisis of global capitalism that on the eve of the fourth anniversary of the collapse of investment bank Lehman Brothers, the US Federal Reserve has decided to pump still more money into the financial system...One of the effects of the previous rounds of QE has been to fuel speculation in commodities, pushing up the prices of fuel and basic foodstuffs, which increases the hardships faced by hundreds of millions of impoverished people around the world. The jump in the prices of gold and oil after the measures were announced indicates that a new round of commodity speculation may be about to begin. ['Qualitative easing' is just euphemism for a continued bailout of the financial oligarchy at the expense and to the detriment of the vast majority. --MDR.]

Anonymous's Barrett Brown Raided by FBI During Online Chat 13 Sep 2012 For the second time this year, self-proclaimed Anonymous spokesman Barrett Brown was raided by the FBI. The latest dramatic incident occurred late Wednesday evening while Brown and another woman identified by some as his girlfriend were participating in an online chat on TinyChat with other individuals. Two minutes into the recorded chat session, loud voices could be heard in the background of Brown’s residence in Texas while the woman in the room with him was in front of the computer screen. She quickly closed the computer screen, but the audio continued to capture events in the room as the FBI appeared to strong-arm Brown to put handcuffs on him. Brown could be heard yelling in the background.

Oil contracts 'gone missing' from consulate in Benghazi

Oil contracts 'gone missing' from consulate in Benghazi --America 'was warned of embassy attack but did nothing' 14 Sep 2012 The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the result of a serious and continuing security breach, The Independent can reveal. American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack... Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts. [Try as I might, I can no longer remain silent on this one -- so Facebook, do your thing. 'Protesters' did not assassinate Ambassador Stevens and 3 Navy SEALs (working for mercenaries at the time). This was a likely a(nother) CIA-sanctioned operation, executed so that USociopaths can control Libya's new regime to ensure that corpora-terrorists get Libya's oil and water. --LRP]

Entergy sued over lax security at NY nuclear plant

September 14, 2012 by legitgov

Entergy sued over lax security at NY nuclear plant 13 Sep 2012 A security guard at the Indian Point nuclear power plant in New York state sued the facility's owner, Entergy Corp, for more than $1.5 billion for emotional distress, claiming lax security at the plant. Clifton Travis, who has been employed at the plant since 2008 and was still on the Entergy payroll, claimed in his lawsuit that Entergy encouraged security personnel to play video games and watch movies to keep them occupied during their shifts... Travis also said the company was improperly storing nuclear waste materials at the plant, and said the plant failed a force-on-force drill, during which mock adversaries tested the plant's security defenses.

Second Belgian nuclear reactor has indications of cracks on core tank 13 Sep 2012 A second nuclear reactor in Belgium has indications of cracks in its core tank, the nuclear regulator said on Thursday. Preliminary results of tests being carried out at Tihange 2, a reactor operated by GDF Suez unit Electrabel, showed that there were indications of cracks on the core tank, Belgium's nuclear regulator FANC said in a statement. The 1,008 megawatt reactor in the south of the country was to reopen from a scheduled shutdown in October, but that will be delayed while experts analyse the results.

3 GOP Electoral College members say they may not vote for Republican ticket of Romney/Ryan 13 Sep 2012 At least three Republican electors say they may not support their party's presidential ticket when the Electoral College meets in December to formally elect the next president, escalating tensions within the GOP and adding a fresh layer of intrigue to the final weeks of the White House race. The electors - all supporters of former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul - told The Associated Press they are exploring options should Mitt Romney win their states. They expressed frustration at how Republican leaders have worked to suppress Paul's conservative movement and his legion of loyal supporters.

American Killed in Libya Was on Intel Mission to Track Weapons 13 Sep 2012 One of the Americans killed alongside Ambassador Christopher Stevens in an attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya Tuesday told ABC News before his death that he was working with the State Department on an intelligence mission to round up dangerous weapons in the war-torn nation. In an interview with ABC News last month, Glen Doherty, a 42-year-old former Navy SEAL who worked as a contractor with the State Department, said he personally went into the field to track down so-called MANPADS, shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles, and destroy them.
