March 26, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima Pref. deleted 5 days of radiation dispersion data just after meltdowns 22 Mar 2012 The Fukushima Prefectural Government revealed on March 21 that it deleted five days of early radiation dispersion data almost entirely unread in the wake of the meltdowns at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant. The data from the System for Prediction of Environmental Emergency Dose Information (SPEEDI) - intended to predict the spread of radioactive contamination, information vital for issuing evacuation advisories - was emailed to the prefectural government by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. The Nuclear Safety Technology Center sent the data hourly starting at 11:54 p.m. on March 12, 2011 - one day into the nuclear crisis. The Fukushima Prefectural Government, however, deleted all the data it received from March 12 to about 9 a.m. March 16.

France charges gunman's brother with terrorism --Detained last week, he will remain in custody pending further investigation. 25 Mar 2012 A Frenchman suspected of helping his brother plot attacks against Jewish schoolchildren and paratroopers was handed preliminary murder and terrorism charges Sunday. But Abdelkader Merah denied any role in the attacks. Investigators looking into France's worst terror attacks in years believe Merah helped his brother Mohamed prepare the killings, and are investigating whether they were linked to an international network of extremists or worked on their own. Abdelkader's lawyer said he feels like "a scapegoat."

Savage killing of Iraqi mother of five in California investigated as hate crime 25 Mar 2012 California police say an Iraqi-born mother of five who was beaten to death may have been the victim of a hate crime. The killer of Shaima Alawadi, 32, left a note reportedly reading: "Go back to your own country. You're a terrorist." Alawadi, an immigrant, died on Saturday after the attack last Wednesday. Her 17-year-old daughter, Fatima, told a local television station that her mother had been beaten on the head repeatedly with a tyre lever, and that the note said "go back to your country, you terrorist". The police confirmed a note had been found but did not release the details.

Hundreds of Israelis march in Tel Aviv to protest war with Iran 24 Mar 2012 Hundreds of Israelis marched in Tel Aviv on Saturday to protest against a possible Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities. The protest came amid a recent Facebook campaign linking Israeli and Iranian citizens in their opposition to war between the two nations.

'No US-led trooper will face charges over Pakistan killings'

March 25, 2012 by legitgov

'No US-led trooper will face charges over Pakistan killings' 25 Mar 2012 The US military says no American soldier will face disciplinary charges for the US-led airstrikes that killed 24 soldiers in northwestern Pakistan last November. A second investigation into the incident carried out by the US military determined that no American military personnel should be punished in face of the deadly airstrikes, The New York Times reported on Saturday, citing three senior military officials. The American forces fired in self-defense and any other mistakes had been the result of battlefield confusion, the officials said.

Justice Dept. Broadens Investigations of Terrorism in Private Records

March 25, 2012 by legitgov

Justice Dept. Broadens Investigations of Terrorism in Private Records 23 Mar 2012 The U.S. Justice Department plans to extend the length of time intelligence agencies can retain records on private citizens, even if there is no evidence they are involved in terrorism. The guidelines Attorney General Eric Holder signed this week for the National Counterterrorism Center are raising complaints from privacy advocates. Until now, private information on Americans could be retained for no more than 180 days by the center. The new guidelines allow them to be kept for five years. In addition, intelligence officials will be able to make copies of the personal data and use it for data mining, which refers to using algorithms that find patterns indicating a propensity toward terrorism.

U.S.: Bales went on 2 shooting sprees

March 24, 2012 by legitgov

U.S.: Bales went on 2 shooting sprees 24 Mar 2012 American officials say U.S. investigators now believe the U.S. soldier accused of killing 17 Afghan civilians split the slaughter into two episodes - returning to his base after the first attack and later slipping away to kill again. This scenario seems to support the U.S. government's assertion lie -- contested by some Afghans [and anyone with an IQ above that of a desk lamp] -- that the killings were done by one person, since they would have been perpetrated over a longer period of time than assumed when Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales was detained March 11. But it also raises questions about how Bales could have carried out the slaughter without drawing attention from others on the American base in Kandahar province.

State Department Denies Cuban Diplomats' Visa Request to Attend Marxist Panel In New York

March 24, 2012 by legitgov

State Department Denies Cuban Diplomats' Visa Request to Attend Marxist Panel In New York 24 Mar 2012 The State Department says it has rejected applications from two senior Cuban diplomats to travel to New York to take part in a panel discussion sponsored by a Marxist group, but not for political reasons. [Yeah, right!] Rather, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says they were denied because American diplomats in Havana are routinely refused permission to travel outside the Cuban capital. The two diplomats from Cuba's interest section in Washington had asked to go to New York from March 16-18 to appear on a panel about Cuba sponsored by the magazine Marxism-Leninism Today.

CIAciopaths are busy little bees: Terrorists blow up gas pipeline in Syria: State media 24 Mar 2012 Syrian state media say terrorists have blown up a section of a pipeline carrying gas through the eastern province of Deir al-Zour. The attack was carried out on Saturday, state media said. This is not the first time a Syrian gas pipeline comes under attack by armed groups over the past year. The Saturday attack in the region was conducted on the same day when state media said Syrians held a demonstration in the provincial capital, Deir al-Zour, to express support for the government's reform programs and to reject foreign interference in the internal affairs of Syria.

Europol chief warns about 'lone wolf' jihadist threat

March 24, 2012 by legitgov

Europol chief warns about 'lone wolf' jihadist threat 24 Mar 2012 With France's deadly attacks, Islamic [sic] terror has apparently struck once more in the heart of Europe - and authorities say there's a dangerous twist: the emergence of homegrown extremists operating independent of any known networks, making them hard to track and stop. "We have a different kind of jihadist threat emerging and it's getting stronger," Europol chief Rob Wainwright told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from The Hague. "It is much more decentralized and harder to track." France's motorcycle gunman traumatized a nation heading into presidential elections and spread fear across the continent that the specter of al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] was once again threatening daily life.

French gunman once held in custody by US forces in Afghanistan

March 24, 2012 by legitgov

French gunman once held in custody by US forces in Afghanistan 22 Mar 2012 U.S. and French authorities said Mohammed Merah [the man suspected of murdering seven people who was killed in a shootout with police on Thursday] had traveled to Afghanistan around 2010 to obtain training from Islamic militants. He had spent time with militants along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border before being captured and returned to France. At some point after his capture, two other U.S. officials said, Merah was held in custody by U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The officials declined to give details of how and when this occurred and what happened to him next. French authorities said he traveled to Afghanistan again more recently, but returned to France on his own after contracting hepatitis.

Western countries scramble for Afghan exits 23 Mar 2012 As international forces prepare for withdrawal from Afghanistan, Western countries are already in talks with Afghanistan's Central Asian neighbors to bring their troops and military equipment back home. The Pakistani route and the Northern Distribution Network (NDN) running through Central Asian countries are the two viable routes for international forces to withdraw from Afghanistan. The United States and Afghanistan are in the process of negotiating an accord for a long-term US presence in Afghanistan after 2014, when most foreign combat forces are due to withdraw. The US wants some advisers mercenaries and special forces to stay.

As Santorum Fires Gun, Woman Shouts 'Pretend It's Obama' 23 Mar 2012 At a campaign stop at a firing range, while Rick Santorum was firing off some rounds, a woman shouted, "pretend it's Obama." Santorum, who was far from the woman, couldn't hear the comment as he proceeded with his target practice. Neither could his staffers. But the yell - the identity of the yeller is not clear, although the words were clearly audible - was in close proximity to journalists traveling with the candidate.

US: Journalist fired after calling Israeli occupation 'brutal' 23 Mar 2012 A veteran American journalist has been fired after referring to Israel's occupation of Palestinian and Syrian land as "brutal." Sunni Khalid, managing news editor at WYPR-FM in Baltimore, was dropped by the public radio station on Thursday after more than nine years on the job. He had been on probation following criticism of comments he made on Facebook about Israel's continued illegal occupation of Palestine. "I, for one, have had enough of this pandering before the Israeli regime," he wrote. "The war-mongering toward Iran has, once again, distracted the world from Israel's brutal military occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights."

Obama Signs 'Thank You' to Deaf Supporter 21 Mar 2012 President Obama didn't miss a beat last week when he encountered a group of deaf students along a rope line after his speech at Prince George’s Community College in Maryland. "I am proud of you," signed Stephon, a 26-year-old college student, who looked at Obama with amazement. Obama immediately paused and signed back "thank you." Another deaf woman signed, "I love you," drawing a big Obama smile.

'Etch A Sketch' stocks soar after Romney gaffe 22 Mar 2012 Shares in a company that makes Etch A Sketch nearly tripled in value on Thursday, a day after the humble toy was thrust into the center of US politics. The Ohio Art Company, which makes the children's iconic drawing device, saw its shares increase as much as 213 percent after a key aide to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made an ill-thought reference to the toy. But the Ohio Art Company tried to make hay out of Romney's woes. In a statement the company said it was "happy to see Etch A Sketch, an American classic toy, is DRAWING attention with political candidates as a cultural icon and important piece of our society. A profound toy, highly recognized and loved by all, is now SHAKING up the national debate."

Outrage over Trayvon Martin shooting spreads 22 Mar 2012 Fury over the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is spreading. Marchers took to the streets in New York City and Miami Wednesday, demanding the arrest of the shooter, neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. And he's not the only one under fire. In Manhattan, hundreds demonstrated, seeking justice, they said, for Martin. The "Million Hoodie March" got its name because Martin was wearing a hoodie on Feb. 28, the night Zimmerman shot him. [Is George Zimmerman a confidential informant for the Sanford Police Department? That would explain why Zimmerman appears to be a protected species. --LRP]

Thousands attend rally for slain Fla. teen 22 Mar 2012 Thousands of Sanford residents and protesters from around the country attended a rally for a black teen fatally shot by a neighborhood watch captain in Florida. The rally was initially planned for a 400-seat church. But Thursday evening's two-hour rally for 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was moved to Fort Mellon Park in downtown Sanford to make room for all the people expected to attend. Civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton told the crowd that he wants to see Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman, in court with handcuffs behind his back. [Notice that Obusha is silent on the shooting of Trayvon Martin?

U.S. Resurrects Shuttered Bush Administration 'Total Information Awareness' Data Mining Program

U.S. Resurrects Shuttered Bush Administration 'Total Information Awareness' Data Mining Program --U.S. Relaxes Limits on Use of Data in Terror Analysis 23 Mar 2012 The Obama administration is moving to relax restrictions on how counterterrorism analysts may retrieve, store and search information about Americans gathered by government agencies for purposes other than national security threats. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Thursday signed new guidelines for the National Counterterrorism Center, which was created in 2004 to foster intelligence sharing and serve as a terrorism threat clearinghouse. The guidelines will lengthen to five years - from 180 days - the amount of time the center can retain private information about Americans when there is no suspicion that they are tied to terrorism, intelligence officials said. The guidelines are also expected to result in the center making more copies of entire databases and "data mining them" using complex algorithms to search for patterns that could indicate a threat.

Sarkozy: Jail those who browse terror websites

Sarkozy: Jail those who browse terror websites --'Anyone' who regularly consults terror-advocating sites will be criminally punished 22 Mar 2012 France's president proposed a sweeping new law Thursday that would jail those who visit extremist web sites -- one of several tough new measures floated in the wake of a murderous shooting spree. Nicolas Sarkozy argued that it was time to treat those who browse extremist websites the same way as those who consume child pornography. "Anyone who regularly consults Internet sites which promote terror or hatred or violence will be sentenced to prison," he told a campaign rally in Strasbourg, in eastern France. "What is possible for pedophiles should be possible for trainee terrorists and their supporters, too."

Southern leg of Keystone pipeline a 'priority,' Obama says

March 23, 2012 by legitgov

Mega barf alert: Southern leg of Keystone pipeline a 'priority,' Obama says 22 Mar 2012 Amid criticism he isn't doing enough to beat back rising gas prices, President Obama Thursday said he is calling on his administration "to cut through red tape, break through bureaucratic hurdles," and make the Southern leg of the controversial Keystone pipeline "a priority." Mr. Obama's stop in Cushing was part of a four-state, two-day tour in which the president touted his [corpora-terrorist overlords'] energy policies. Standing next to the giant TransCanada pipes that will make up the Southern leg of the Keystone pipeline, Mr. Obama sought to remind voters that he's not opposed to domestic oil drilling [so Exxon Mobil can sell the oil to China]. [Once again, Obusha surrenders to his GOP overlords and fails to address the cause of skyrocketing oil prices: Wall Street speculation and rampant profiteering by US oil companies.]

These officers were in full riot gear and had assault rifles, tactical gear and shotguns. They were also accompanied by FBI agents and the City of Miami police.

2 Fla. officials step aside in teen death probe 22 Mar 2012 The police chief and prosecutor who have been bitterly criticized for not arresting a neighborhood watch volunteer in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager both left the case Thursday, with the chief saying that he is temporarily leaving his job to let passions cool. Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee's decision came less than a day after city commissioners gave him a "no confidence" vote, and after a couple of weeks of protests and uproar on social media websites.
