Missing plane: Scientists question methods and politics of the MH370 search

Missing plane: Scientists question methods and politics of the MH370 search 23 May 2014 Underwater scientists have labelled the search for MH370 a "debacle" and say Prime Minister Tony Abbott was playing politics when he prematurely announced the black box pingers had been found. The acoustic experts, who do not wish to be identified, said the four crucial signals detected by a US pinger locator were almost certainly not from the missing Malaysian Airlines plane's black boxes, but from another man-made source. They insisted that the signals were in the wrong frequency and detected too far apart to be from the boxes. "As soon as I saw the frequency and the distance between the pings I knew it couldn’t be the aircraft pinger," one scientist told News Corp Australia.

Holy Valerie Plame, Batman! 'Worse' than WikiLeaks: White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan 25 May 2014 The CIA's top officer in Kabul was exposed Saturday by the White House when his name was inadvertently included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in President Obama's surprise visit with U.S. troops.

Guess he's now got more to worry about than the CIA's poppy fields! And, when CLG obtains the outed name, we're reporting it. --LRP]

Russia is not the type of country that gives up fighters for human rights," Putin said during the plenary session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. "Why did [the Americans] scare the whole world? If they can force planes down with presidents on board, then they could have forced down anything with Mr. Snowden on board anywhere," he said.

Japan court rejects startup of 2 nuclear reactors

Japan court rejects startup of 2 nuclear reactors 22 May 2014 A court Wednesday refused to let two nuclear reactors restart operations in western Japan, saying their risk assessment is too optimistic and safety measures insufficient despite lessons from the Fukushima disaster. The denial by the district court in Japan's nuclear hub of Fukui is the first since the crisis and comes as some Japanese reactors are in the final stages of safety screening before a restart, and plaintiffs and their anti-nuclear supporters say the court ruling could sway local acceptance. Anti-nuclear sentiment and the public's distrust to utility operators and authorities have persisted since the 2011 meltdowns at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant.

WikiLeaks reveals NSA recording 'nearly all' phone calls in Afghanistan

'Country X': WikiLeaks reveals NSA recording 'nearly all' phone calls in Afghanistan 23 May 2014 The NSA records all domestic and international phone calls in Afghanistan, similar to what it does in the Bahamas, WikiLeaks' Julian Assange said. Reports in the Washington Post and The Intercept had previously reported that domestic and international phone calls from two or more target states had been recorded and stored in mass as of 2013. Both publications censored the name of one victim country at the request of the US government, which the Intercept referred to as country "X". Assange says he cannot disclose how WikiLeaks confirmed the identity of the victim state for the sake of source protection, though the claim can be "independently verified" via means of "forensic scrutiny of imperfectly applied censorship on related documents released to date and correlations with other NSA programs."
