Boston Marathon bombs believed carried in dark, heavy bags 16 Apr 2013 Authorities suspect whoever perpetrated the Boston Marathon bombings carried heavy devices made out of pressure cookers in dark-colored nylon bags or backpacks before dropping them near the finish line, causing the worst attack on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001 [an inside job]. The twin blasts on Monday killed three people including an 8-year-old boy and injured 176 others, some of whom were maimed by bombs packed with ball bearings and nails. President Barack Obama, who will travel to Boston on Thursday for a memorial service, on Tuesday called the bombings an "act of terror" and police said parts of central Boston could be closed for days.

April 16, 2013 by legitgov

Health Officials on Alert For Bird Flu 16 Apr 2013 U.S. health officials are on high alert because of a new strain of bird flu that's already killed several people in China. So far no cases have been reported in the United States, but health departments across the country are ready to respond. Those who have gotten sick in China, have all gotten the virus from animals. Nevertheless, the CDC has raised its alert level because it's always possible for viruses to mutate [which happens when they're mutated].

April 16, 2013 by legitgov

U.S. Practiced Torture After 9/11, Review Concludes 16 Apr 2013 A nonpartisan, independent review of interrogation and detention programs in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks concludes that "it is indisputable that the United States engaged in the practice of torture" and that the nation's highest officials bore ultimate responsibility for it. The sweeping, 577-page report [by an 11-member panel convened by the Constitution Project] says that while brutality has occurred in every American war, there never before had been "the kind of considered and detailed discussions that occurred after 9/11 directly involving a president and his top advisers on the wisdom, propriety and legality of inflicting pain and torment on some detainees in our custody."

CLG: Security on Alert --'Numerous Amtrak, local, state and Department of Homeland Security police agents swarmed' by Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D. 16 Apr 2013 Today, one day after the massacre at the Boston Marathon in Copley Square, the nation's security apparatuses were on full display. In the train stations from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to Stamford, Connecticut, numerous Amtrak, local, state and Department of Homeland Security police agents swarmed. Bomb-sniffing dogs abounded. In Stamford, CT, for example, a relatively small station, three bomb-sniffing dogs could be seen, and police numbered in the dozens. Bags were being randomly searched in Pennsylvania, New York, and Connecticut. Officers stood on platforms and in the terminals, even boarding and searching trains.

The Beijing Municipal Health Bureau said the boy was detected from a group of close contacts of the first infection in Beijing and the laboratory results showed the boy was an asymptomatic carrier of the disease.

Obama says Boston bombings an act of terrorism 16 Apr 2013 President Barack Obama said Tuesday the deadly Boston Marathon bombings were an act of terrorism but investigators do not know if they were carried out by an international or domestic organization, or perhaps by a "malevolent individual." In his second public statement in less than 24 hours since the explosions, the president said, "Clearly we are at the beginning of our investigation." He urged anyone with information relating to the events to contact authorities.

Republican money backs immigration push

April 16, 2013 by legitgov

Republican money backs immigration push 15 Apr 2013 As Congress readies for a drawn-out immigration debate, an expanding network of Republican fundraisers is pressing for a path to legal status for millions of immigrants living in the United States illegally... In most cases, the donors have ties to Wall Street and businesses that want more high- and low-skilled immigrants in the nation's legal labor pool. Backed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, these business-minded Republican fundraisers say they're getting a relatively receptive audience in the face of an undeniable new political reality. ['Immigration reform' is code for corpora-terrorists getting a whole new pool of cheap labor -- with US taxpayers footing the bill for the extra costs of that gift -- while ALL workers' wages are driven down. That's been Wall Street's goal from the get-go, and why Obama supports it. --LRP]

April 16, 2013 by legitgov

Tight security will be the rule in Boston today --'That area is pretty much going to be locked down' --Governor Deval Patrick 16 Apr 2013 Boston will be largely open for business on Tuesday, but so much will be different, as a wounded city awakens to higher security and heightened vigilance following the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon. Heavily armed police will be out in force. Bags will be searched on the ­MBTA. And the area around Copley Square will remain a crime scene, closed to the public. Not since the Sept. 11 attacks has Boston witnessed such a show of martial power coupled with a sense of vulnerability and grief. The scores of rifle-wielding state troopers, National Guard members in fatigues, and municipal SWAT teams who descended on the city Monday will continue to patrol on Tuesday, particularly around the finish line of the marathon in the Back Bay.

Lawmakers call Boston bombing an 'act of terror'

April 16, 2013 by legitgov

Lawmakers call Boston bombing an 'act of terror' 15 Apr 2013 The bombs that exploded near the finish line at the Boston Marathon Monday are considered a terrorist attack by several Capitol Hill lawmakers, even as President Obama refrained using that description earlier in the day. "I think it has all the hallmarks of an act of terrorism," House Homeland Security Committee chairman Mike McCaul, R-Texas, said. "Multiple bombings simultaneously. A mass casualty event - spectacular event - that's what they always try to focus and target. So, to me, it's got all the hallmarks of that and I believe that it is and the only remaining issue is who are the perpetrators and what's the motivation behind it."
