US scrambles to rush spies, drones to Libya

September 15, 2012 by legitgov

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...

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.]

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]

U.S. Sending Drones to Hunt Libyan Attackers --U.S. has previously flown surveillance missions over Benghazi area in 'search for terrorist camps' 12 Sep 2012 CNN reports that the United States will send unmanned drones to Libya to look for jihadist camps, as the White House now accepts the belief that the Benghazi attack was the premeditated work of terrorists.
