Mysterious respiratory virus claims another life in Middle East

November 24, 2012 by legitgov

Mysterious respiratory virus claims another life in Middle East 24 Nov 2012 Another person has died and at least three more cases of a mysterious respiratory virus have been discovered in Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The World Health Organization confirms that that the new strain is part of the coronavirus family, which also includes the deadly SARS. The WHO has confirmed six cases of infection, with four in Saudi Arabia and two in Qatar. The World Health Organization earlier said that the virus does not appear to be contagious, but on Friday it announced that the two latest cases discovered in a Saudi family were epidemiologically linked.

Pentagon Wants to Keep Running Its Afghan Drug War From Blackwater's HQ

November 24, 2012 by legitgov

Pentagon Wants to Keep Running Its Afghan Drug War From Blackwater's HQ 21 Nov 2012 Inside a compound in Kabul called Camp Integrity [sic], the Pentagon stations a small group of officers to oversee the U.S. military's various operations to 'curb' the spread of Afghanistan's cash crops of heroin and marijuana, which help line the Taliban's CIA's pockets. Only Camp Integrity isn't a U.S. military base at all. It's the 10-acre Afghanistan headquarters of the private security company formerly known as Blackwater. Those officers work for an obscure Pentagon agency called the Counter Narco-Terrorism Program Office, or CNTPO. Quietly, it's grown into one of the biggest dispensers of cash for private security contractors in the entire U.S. government: One pile of contracts last year from CNTPO was worth more than $3 billion. And it sees a future for itself in Afghanistan over the long haul... When all the options are exercised, the contract extends through September 29, 2015, over a year past the date when Afghan soldiers and cops are supposed to take over the war. And the "government preferred location" to base CNTPO? Camp Integrity.

Judge Denies Bail to Hacktivist Jeremy Hammond

November 24, 2012 by legitgov

Judge Denies Bail to Hacktivist Jeremy Hammond 21 Nov 2012 A federal judge refused release to one of the men accused of helping Anonymous and others hack various media, government and private-spy websites last year. Jeremy Hammond was one of five so-called hacktivists arrested in a March sting operation engineered after the FBI made an informant [traitor] of Hector Monsegur, a hacker known online as Sabu, who led a group called LulzSec. At a bail hearing in New York on Tuesday, Hammond's defense attorney, Elizabeth Fink, implied that investigators used entrapment to snare Hammond for the cyberattack on private intelligence firm Strategic Forecasting, or Stratfor. Monsegur led the Stratfor attack under his Sabu alter ego while he was working for the government, Fink said.

NORAD F-16s intercept Cessna 337 over Charleston, SC 23 Nov 2012 Two F-16 fighters under the direction of North American Aerospace Defense Command intercepted a Cessna 337 general aviation aircraft in the vicinity of Charleston, South Carolina, today at approximately 11:20 a.m. EST. The aircraft was designated a track of interest because of an apparent discrepancy between its track and flight plan. Once it was intercepted and identified, the aircraft landed at the Charleston Executive Airport without further incident. The pilot was directed to contact the Federal Aviation Administration for further direction.

November 23, 2012 by legitgov

High-tech surveillance gear raises questions in NJ 23 Nov 2012 A federal anti-terrorism program has drawn North Jersey deeper into the practice of hidden surveillance, equipping police departments with high-tech cameras, infrared technology and automatic license plate readers to keep tabs on people as they travel to local reservoirs, financial hubs and malls. The stepped-up security around potential terrorist targets links the region into a network of clandestine monitoring. Some of the departments are already putting to use the equipment provided by Homeland Security; others are gearing up.

Netanyahu: Israel ready for fresh attacks 22 Nov 2012 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned that the Tel Aviv regime is ready for fresh attacks on the Gaza Strip in case of, what he called, an Egypt-brokered ceasefire's failure to hold. "I know there are citizens that expect a harsher stand in Gaza - and we are prepared to make one. We choose when to act, against who to act and how to act," he was quoted as saying on Thursday. Netanyahu said Tel Aviv was "giving the ceasefire a chance."

US building drone subs to track, chase away enemy vessels: Report

November 23, 2012 by legitgov

US building drone subs to track, chase away enemy vessels: Report 22 Nov 2012 The American military has begun work on developing unmanned submarine drones capable of navigating oceans to track underwater vessels of rival nations. The Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), tasked with developing new military technologies, began the project since "the growing number of adversaries able to build and operate quiet diesel electric submarines is a national security threat that affects US and friendly naval operations around the world," the report adds, citing a statement posted on DARPA's website. The United States Department of Defense is in the initial stages of developing "unmanned drone submarines" that will navigate oceans across the globe, "tracking and following enemy subs for months at a time," RIA Novosti reported Wednesday.

NC activists angered by killing of 3-legged bear

November 23, 2012 by legitgov

NC activists angered by killing of 3-legged bear --Construction workers building a house on the development began feeding the bear because he was so skinny. 22 Nov 2012 A skinny, three-legged black bear had become a fixture at an upscale housing community deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, rummaging through trash cans and playfully ambling along the golf course. Wildlife advocates scrambled to find a sanctuary for the animal, but time ran out: in August, the bear was shot and killed by management. That bear's death in Mountain Air, about 35 miles north of Asheville, has become a flashpoint for outraged wildlife advocates who say the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission needs to find non-lethal ways to handle so-called nuisance bears. David Cobb, chief of the agency's Division of Wildlife Management, said the Mountain Air community decided to kill the three-legged bear. [Terrorists murdered that poor bear. Too bad bears don't have the right to *bear arms.* CLGers, share your thoughts with David Cobb, david.cobb@ncwildlife.org and cobbdt@mail.wildlife.state.nc.us (919) 733-7291 - Dr. David T.

150-vehicle pileup on foggy Texas highway leaves 2 dead, 100 hurt

November 23, 2012 by legitgov

150-vehicle pileup on foggy Texas highway leaves 2 dead, 100 hurt 22 Nov 2012 A series of massive Thanksgiving morning pileups involving up to 150 vehicles in southeast Texas has left two dead and as many as 100 injured, authorities told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday. It was one of the busiest driving times on one of the highest-traffic days of the year, and Deputy Rod Carroll of the Jefferson County Sheriff's office said heavy fog and high speeds probably caused the three separate pileups to begin on Interstate 10 -- in both directions -- about 8 a.m. Media photos from the scene showed pile after pile of vehicles, shredded FedEx trailers and tractor-trailers rammed into smaller vehicles.

UK intelligence sued for using sex to infiltrate activists

November 22, 2012 by legitgov

UK intelligence sued for using sex to infiltrate activists --Evidence uncovered by the Guardian suggests practice of undercover officers sleeping with their targets 'routine' 21 Nov 2012 Undercover police officers had long-term sexual relationships with political activists and joined them at family gatherings and on holidays to make their targets "emotionally dependent" on them, according to papers submitted to the high court. The allegations were revealed at the start of a legal attempt by the Metropolitan police to have the claims heard in secret. Ten women and one man have launched a legal action claiming they were conned into forming "deeply personal" relationships with the police spies. The case is the first civil action to be brought before a court since the Guardian revealed police officers frequently slept with political campaigners as part of a spy operation over four decades.

Homeland Security Wants to More Than Double Its Predator Drone Fleet Inside the US

November 22, 2012 by legitgov

Homeland Security Wants to More Than Double Its Predator Drone Fleet Inside the US, Despite Safety and Privacy Concerns --DHS has already spent $250 million over the last six years on ten surveillance Predators of its own. 20 Nov 2012 Despite renewed criticism from both parties in Congress that domestic drones pose a privacy danger to US citizens—and a report from its own Inspector General recommending to stop buying them--the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has indicated it wants to more than double its fleet of Predator drones used to fly surveillance missions inside the United States. Yesterday, California Watch reported that DHS signed a contract that could be worth as much as $443 million with General Atomics for the purchase up to fourteen additional Predator drones to fly near the border of Mexico and Canada. Congress would still need to appropriate the funds, but if they did, DHS's drone fleet would increase to twenty-four. 

Nuclear disaster robot still prone to glitches

November 22, 2012 by legitgov

Nuclear disaster robot still prone to glitches 22 Nov 2012 Toshiba has developed a robot it says can withstand high radiation to work in nuclear disasters, but it's not clear what exactly the robot is capable of doing if and when it gets the go-ahead to enter Japan's crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. The four-legged robot can climb over debris and venture into radiated areas off-limits to humans. One significant innovation, Toshiba said, is that its wireless network can be controlled in high radiation, automatically seeking better transmission when reception becomes weak. But the machine, which looks like an ice cooler on wobbly metal legs, also appears prone to glitches.

Revealed: Military emails show that NO U.S. sailors witnessed Osama bin Laden's secret burial at sea

Revealed: Military emails show that NO U.S. sailors witnessed Osama bin Laden's secret burial at sea --Defense Department says it cannot find any images or videos of bin Laden's aboard USS Carl Vinson --Pentagon failed to produce autopsy report, death certificate or results of DNA tests --The CIA, which ran the bin Laden raid, and has special legal authority to keep information from ever being made public. 21 Nov 2012 Internal emails among U.S. military officers indicate that no American sailors watched Osama bin Laden's burial at sea from the USS Carl Vinson, and traditional Islamic procedures were followed during the secret ceremony. The emails, obtained by The Associated Press through the Freedom of Information Act, are heavily blacked out, but are the first public disclosure of government information about the al-Qaida leader's death. The emails were released Wednesday by the Defense Department. Although the Obama administration has pledged to be the most transparent in American history, it is keeping a tight hold on materials related to the 'bin Laden' raid. In a response to separate requests from the AP for information about the mission, the Defense Department said in March that it could not locate any photographs or video taken during the raid or showing bin Laden's body. It also said it could not find any images of bin Laden's body on the Vinson. The Pentagon also said it could not find any death certificate, autopsy report or results of DNA identification tests for bin Laden, or any pre-raid materials discussing how the government planned to dispose of bin Laden's body if he were killed. [Osama bid Laden died in December 2001. See: News of Bin Laden's Death and Funeral - December 2001.]

Jill Kelley took multiple flights at taxpayer expense --Pentagon says 'unable' to track down records that reveal how many times Kelley had flown on government-owned planes 19 Nov 2012 Not only did Jill Kelley have MacDill's top brass over at her house, but 10 News has learned she also took multiple flights on military aircraft at taxpayer expense. In at least one instance, Kelley flew to the nation's capital with General John Allen, the commander of US forces in Afghanistan. Top officers have access to VIP planes like the C-40, a sort of mini-Air Force One with special communications gear. There's also a modified corporate jet, the C-37A, reserved for high-level officers.

Fukushima nuclear plant to be patrolled by four-legged inspection-bot 21 Nov 2012 Lingering radiation at Fukushima's nuclear plants still poses a threat to cleanup workers and inspectors. This robot, or rather pair of robots, will go where humans can't (and on four legs, to boot). The robot pair, called simply the "Quadruped walking robot," was designed by Toshiba specifically for this kind of work.

U.S. says KBR boosted cost of trailers for troops in Iraq

November 22, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. says KBR boosted cost of trailers for troops in Iraq 19 Nov 2012 The U.S. Justice Department said on Monday that it had sued [terrorists] KBR Inc, accusing the company and a Kuwaiti subcontractor of improperly charging the federal government for the costs of delivering and installing trailers for troops in Iraq. The filing of the lawsuit came days after the Justice Department dropped a similar but unrelated case over KBR's costs for private armed security in Iraq. Filed in the U.S. District Court in Rock Island, Illinois, the latest lawsuit alleges that KBR-hired subcontractor First Kuwaiti Trading Co inflated its crane, truck and driver costs and misrepresented delays on the installation of more than 2,250 trailers.

Stand with Walmart Strikers on Black Friday

November 21, 2012 by walden9

Stand with Walmart Strikers on Black Friday Across the country, Walmart employs 1.4 million people. We are not just the Associates that you see in stores, we are moms and dads, sons and daughters, husbands and wives working hard to support our families. We have been speaking out for good jobs with decent pay, regular hours, affordable healthcare and respect, but instead of working with us to make changes, Walmart has attempted to silence and retaliate against us for speaking out. Our jobs have been threatened, our hours cut, our schedules changed. Some of us have even been fired. We will not be silenced. Throughout the holiday season, including Black Friday, we will be standing up for an end to the retaliation against workers who speak out for what's right for our families, our communities and our country, and we hope that you will stand with us.

Gaza fighting continues amid peace efforts

November 21, 2012 by walden9

Gaza fighting continues amid peace efforts 20 Nov 2012 Israel and the Hamas militant group edged closer to a cease-fire Tuesday to end a weeklong Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip, but after a day of furious diplomatic efforts involving the U.S. secretary of state, U.N. chief and Egypt's president, a deal remained elusive and fighting raged on both sides of the border...Israeli tanks and gunboats pummeled targets in Gaza in what appeared to be a last-minute burst of fire, while at least 200 rockets were fired into Israel. As talks dragged on near midnight, Israeli and Hamas officials, communicating through Egyptian mediators, expressed hope that a deal would soon be reached, but cautioned that it was far from certain.

Flu jabs are 'waste of taxpayer's money', claim scientists who say benefits have been over-hyped

November 21, 2012 by legitgov

Flu jabs are a 'waste of taxpayer's money', claim scientists who say the benefits have been over-hyped --University of Minnesota report says benefits - especially for older people - have been over-promoted 21 Nov 2012 But some experts are now arguing that the jab's effectiveness has been exaggerated. A report published by the Centre for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota, says not only is this misleading the public about the true effectiveness of the jab, it is hindering the development of new vaccines. The Independent says a review by the highly respected Cochrane Collaboration, an international network of experts, concluded that the vaccine had little impact in years, like the winter of 2011-12, when the vaccine and the viruses were mismatched.

Report: French officials accuse US of hacking Sarkozy's computers 20 Nov 2012 The United States used U.S.-Israeli spy software to hack into the French presidential office earlier this year, the French cyberwarfare agency has concluded, according to the newsmagazine l'Express. The magazine reported late Tuesday that the computers of several close advisers to then-president Nicolas Sarkozy – including Chief of Staff Xavier Musca – were compromised in May by a computer virus that bears the hallmarks of Flame, which was allegedly created by a U.S.-Israeli team to target Iran's nuclear program. Anonymous French officials pointed the finger at the United States.

Why Cell Phones Went Dead After Hurricane Sandy

Why Cell Phones Went Dead After Hurricane Sandy 15 Nov 2012 After Hurricane Sandy, survivors needed, in addition to safety and power, the ability to communicate. Yet in parts of New York City, mobile communications services were knocked out for days. The problem? The companies that provide them had successfully resisted Federal Communications Commission calls to make emergency preparations, leaving New Yorkers to rely on the carriers' voluntary efforts. We have so far heard few details about why the companies made the particular business choices they did on backup power and what the consequences of those choices were, because the FCC has been blocked from asking -- even though about a third of people rely on mobile service as their only voice-communications connection.

Faster than NATO, France ends Afghan combat role 20 Nov 2012 France on Tuesday ended its combat operations in Afghanistan, pulling hundreds of troops from a base in a volatile region northeast of Kabul and fulfilling promises to end its combat role on a faster track than other NATO allies. After a handover ceremony with Afghan troops, 500 French combat soldiers in trucks and armored vehicles left the Nijrab base in the Kapisa region -- where anti-government insurgents have been active -- and traveled southwest to Kabul, the capital, said Col. Thierry Burkhard, a French military spokesman.

Senate bill, quietly rewritten, allows feds to read e-mail without warrants

November 20, 2012 by legitgov

Senate bill, quietly rewritten, allows feds to read e-mail without warrants 20 Nov 2012 A Senate proposal touted as protecting Americans' e-mail privacy has been quietly rewritten, giving government agencies more surveillance power than they possess under current law. CNET has learned that Patrick Leahy, the influential Democratic chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee, has dramatically reshaped his legislation in response to law enforcement concerns. A vote on his bill, which now authorizes warrantless access to Americans' e-mail, is scheduled for next week. Leahy's rewritten bill would allow more than 22 agencies -- including the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Federal Communications Commission -- to access Americans' e-mail, Google Docs files, Facebook wall posts, and Twitter direct messages without a search warrant. It also would give the FBI and Homeland Security more authority, in some circumstances, to gain full access to Internet accounts without notifying either the owner or a judge.

Oil leak forces PPL nuclear reactor off line

November 20, 2012 by legitgov

Oil leak forces PPL nuclear reactor off line 20 Nov 2012 (PA) One of the nuclear reactors at PPL's Susquehanna plant near Berwick was shut down due to an oil leak Monday night after returning briefly to service following an 11-day outage caused by a computer problem. The leak of hydraulic oil in a system that controls the flow of steam into the turbine at Unit 2 did not affect public or employee safety [?] and was contained to the building housing the  turbine, according to a PPL news release. Unit 2 shut down on Nov. 9 following a malfunction in a computer system that monitors two water systems, one that circulates cooling water within the reactor and another that runs water through the reactor to produce steam to drive the turbine.

Californian men charged with plot to join al-Qaida --The two began posting radical content on Facebook and expressing extremist views in comments. [Posting 'radical content' on Facebook and expressing 'extremist comments.' Gee, doesn't *everyone* do that?!] 20 Nov 2012 Four Southern California men have been charged with plotting to kill Americans in the US and overseas by joining al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] and the Taliban in Afghanistan, federal officials said.

According to a federal complaint unsealed on Monday during their initial appearances, Sohiel Omar Kabir,  introduced two other California men to the radical Islamist doctrine of Anwar al-Awlaki, a deceased 'al-Qaida' leader.

Turkey Labels Israel a 'Terrorist State'

November 20, 2012 by legitgov

Turkey Labels Israel a 'Terrorist State' 19 Nov 2012 Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of being a "terrorist state" on Monday and criticized world powers for supporting the weeklong bombardment of Gaza that has killed more some 115 people, signaling that the three-year-old rift between the countries is deepening. Speaking in Istanbul shortly after returning from Cairo... Mr. Erdogan railed against what he called Western powers' failure to take concerted action to stop bloodshed in Syria. But harsher words were aimed at one-time ally Israel. "Those who speak of Muslims and terror side by side are turning a blind eye when Muslims are massacred en masse," he told a gathering of the Eurasian Islamic Council. "Those who turn a blind eye to discrimination toward Muslims in their own countries, are also closing their eyes to the savage massacre of innocent children in Gaza... Therefore, I say Israel is a terrorist state."
