April 1, 2012 by legitgov

Trayvon Martin case 911 call: Screams not George Zimmerman's, 2 experts say 01 Apr 2012 The voice heard crying for help on a 911 call just before Trayvon Martin was shot to death was not that of George Zimmerman, according to two forensic voice identification experts, one of whom told MSNBC on Sunday that he believes the evidence is strong enough to use in court. "The tests concluded that it's not the voice of Mr. Zimmerman," Tom Owen, of Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence, told MSNBC. Asked if he thought such tests would be admissible in court, Owen said "yes" and noted he had recently used similar testing in testimony at a Connecticut murder case that involved 911 call.

Trayvon Martin shooting: It's not George Zimmerman crying for help on 911 recording, 2 experts say 31 Mar 2012 Who was heard crying for help on a 911 call in the moments before Trayvon Martin was shot? A leading expert in the field of forensic voice identification sought to answer that question by analyzing the recordings for the Orlando Sentinel. His result: It was not George Zimmerman who called for help. Tom Owen, forensic consultant for Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence, used voice identification software to rule out Zimmerman. Another expert contacted by the Sentinel, utilizing different techniques, came to the same conclusion.

April 1, 2012 by legitgov

Man whose WMD lies led to over 100,000 deaths confesses all 01 Apr 2012 A man [Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi] whose lies helped to make the case for invading Iraq – starting a nine-year war costing more than 100,000 1,000,000 lives and hundreds of billions of pounds – will come clean in his first British television interview tomorrow. "Curveball", the Iraqi defector who fabricated claims about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, smiles as he confirms how he made the whole thing up...  When it is put to him "we went to war in Iraq on a lie. And that lie was your lie", he simply replies: "Yes." US officials "sexed up" Mr Janabi's drawings of mobile biological weapons labs to make them more presentable, admits Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, General Powell's former chief of staff. "I brought the White House team in to do the graphics," he says, adding how "intelligence was being worked to fit around the policy".

Police Are Using Phone Tracking as a Routine Tool

April 1, 2012 by legitgov

Police Are Using Phone Tracking as a Routine Tool 01 Apr 2012 Law enforcement tracking of cellphones, once the province mainly of federal agents, has become a powerful and widely used surveillance tool for local police officials, with hundreds of departments, large and small, often using it aggressively with little or no court oversight, documents show. While many departments require warrants to use phone tracking in nonemergencies, others claim broad discretion to get the records on their own, according to 5,500 pages of internal records obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union from 205 police departments nationwide. The internal documents, which were provided to The New York Times, open a window into a cloak-and-dagger practice that police officials are wary about discussing publicly.

"We want arrests, shot in the chest," the protesters chanted at the demonstration in Sanford.

Lawyers for Martin's family are preparing a formal request that the federal government also investigate the specific report that state attorney prosecutors interfered with a homicide detective who wanted to charge Zimmerman with manslaughter.

Gulf's dolphins pay heavy price for Deepwater oil spill --New studies show impact of BP's Deepwater Horizon disaster on dolphins and other marine wildlife may be far worse than feared 31 Mar 2012 A new study of dolphins living close to the site of North America's worst ever oil spill – the BP Deepwater Horizon catastrophe two years ago – has established serious health problems afflicting the marine mammals. The report, commissioned by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration [NOAA], found that many of the 32 dolphins studied were underweight, anaemic and suffering from lung and liver disease, while nearly half had low levels of a hormone that helps the mammals deal with stress as well as regulating their metabolism and immune systems.

Alleged hacker considered bright, resourceful

March 31, 2012 by legitgov

Alleged hacker considered bright, resourceful 30 Mar 2012 Jeremy Hammond is notoriously well-remembered by classmates and teachers for helping to organize a walk-out his senior year, which led more than 200 from their desks, down the halls of Glenbard East High School, north on Main Street and onto trains that led them to downtown Chicago to join a larger protest of the Iraq War. On another occasion, he used his developed computer skills to hack into the school's server to make the school aware of its weaknesses. Hammond became the unofficial leader of a group that published a left-leaning, underground newsletter consisting of essays, mostly focusing on political theory. The creators called the publication "The Suburban Underground."

U.S. Approves New Nuclear Reactors in South Carolina 30 Mar 2012 Federal regulators Wall Street wh*res approved power company Scana Corp.'s proposal to build two nuclear reactors with a partner in South Carolina at a cost of some $11 billion, the second such approval in two months after a drought that lasted more than 30 years. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission voted 4-1 Friday to green-light construction over a dissent from Chairman Gregory Jaczko, who said the commission should have required compliance with any changes the agency adopts in light of Japan's 2011 [ongoing] nuclear accident... Two Southern Co. reactors in Georgia also received the NRC's blessing last month.

Current washes Keith Olbermann away

Current washes Keith Olbermann away 30 Mar 2012 When Al Gore and Joel Hyatt snapped up Keith Olbermann last year following his spectacular exit from MSNBC, they knew what they were getting... But as their relationship with him disintegrated rather publicly over the last six months – to the surprise of absolutely no one in the television business - it became clear that they were getting all of the drawbacks and none of the benefits. Those tense strands finally snapped Friday afternoon, when Gore and Hyatt announced that Current was firing Olbermann because of a lack of "respect" and "collegiality" and replacing him with a show hosted by former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command says the flights will begin Wednesday night and continue into early Thursday morning.

Attack on WikiLeaks mounts as cables are withheld 31 Mar 2012 The Australian government has renewed its attacks on WikiLeaks, condemning the transparency group for "reckless, irresponsible and potentially dangerous" disclosures of secret information. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has also delayed release, under freedom of information, of sensitive Australian diplomatic cables relating to Julian Assange until after a legal challenge to the WikiLeaks founder's extradition to Sweden has been decided. The delay follows expressions of concern by United States authorities about disclosure of US-Australian discussions about WikiLeaks.

Michigan Militia Members Cleared of Conspiracy

March 31, 2012 by legitgov

Michigan Militia Members Cleared of Conspiracy 28 Mar 2012 A federal judge on Tuesday gutted the government's case against seven members of a Michigan militia, dismissing the most serious charges in an extraordinary defeat for federal authorities who insisted they had captured homegrown rural extremists poised for war. U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts said the members' expressed hatred of law enforcement didn't amount to a conspiracy to rebel against the government. The FBI had secretly planted an informant and an FBI agent inside the Hutaree militia starting in 2008 to collect hours of anti-government audio and video that became the cornerstone of the case.

Three GOP governors tour Neb. beef plant to eat 'pink slime'

Mega barf alert: Three GOP governors tour Neb. beef plant to eat 'pink slime' [For them, it was like looking in a mirror.] --The finished product contains only a trace of ammonia, meant to be an additional 'hurdle for the pathogens.' 29 Mar 2012 Republican governors of three states got up close with "pink slime" Thursday, touching and examining treated beef at a plant and eating hamburgers made with it in a bid to persuade grossed-out consumers and grocery stores the product is safe to consume. The politicians who toured the plant -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, Nebraska Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy and South Dakota Lt. Gov. Matt Michels [as gross as their pimped product] -- all agree with the industry view that the beef has been unfairly maligned and mislabeled and issued a joint statement earlier saying the product is safe.

Attorneys could argue Zimmerman was 'arrested,' and start ticking clock to discharge case By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 31 Mar 2012 George Zimmerman was handcuffed the night of the killing of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman's attorneys could argue that since Zimmerman was handcuffed, he was technically 'arrested.' (MSNBC live) Therefore, under Florida law, the 'clock would start ticking' on Zimmerman's right to a speedy trial under the 6th Amendment. Florida law states, 'If a felony trial does not begin within 175 days from the date of a defendants arrest, a motion can be filed to discharge the case.

Trayvon Martin's body showed no signs of struggle: funeral director

Trayvon Martin's body showed no signs of struggle: funeral director --Kurtz: George Zimmerman's story of a vicious fight just didn't 'add up' 30 Mar 2012 Trayvon Martin's body showed no signs of a violent fight when it arrived at a Miami funeral home, the funeral director said Thursday. Richard Kurtz told CBS News that when he was preparing the teen's body for the funeral, it was clear of bruises, cuts and scrapes or any other signs of a fight that he would have covered up for the teen's wake. Those assertions directly contradict George Zimmerman's story that he was attacked by Martin and struggled with him for minutes before he shot the unarmed teen in self-defense.

Trayvon Martin aftermath video casts doubt on George Zimmerman's account --Police video recorded after shooting shows George Zimmerman without wounds he claimed Trayvon Martin inflicted 29 Mar 2012 Surveillance video depicting Trayvon Martin's killer hours after the teenager's death has cast doubt on his claims that he was injured in a vicious fight with the victim. Seen in handcuffs and accompanied by police officers, self-appointed neighbourhood watchman George Zimmerman displays no obvious signs of having been attacked. The CCTV footage has prompted further questions over Zimmerman's account of the incident. Earlier reports suggested that 17-year-old Martin had attacked the older man first, with the bloodied gunman pulling the trigger in self-defence.

North Korea test fires short-range missiles: reports 29 Mar 2012 North Korea fired two short-range missiles off its west coast on Thursday believed to be part of a test to upgrade capabilities, said news reports published on Friday, quoting South Korean military officials. North Korea launched two short-range missiles believed to be surface-to-ship missiles from its west coast Thursday morning, South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper quoted government officials as saying. North Korea has said it is merely sending a weather satellite into space, but South Korea and the United States say it is a disguised ballistic missile test. [Right, only USociopaths and allies of USociopaths are allowed to launch weather satellites - no one else can.]

Big Oil keeps 5 tax breaks in vote

March 30, 2012 by legitgov

Big Oil keeps 5 tax breaks in vote 29 Mar 2012 The Senate on Thursday decided against advancing a measure to repeal five tax incentives for the nation's biggest oil and gas companies and use the money to extend alternative energy and energy-efficiency tax credits. The measure failed, as had been expected, just after President Barack Obama implored senators to slash incentives that he argued subsidize major companies that don't need them. The measure by Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., would have barred BP, Chevron Corp., ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil Corp. and Shell Oil from claiming several incentives.

When the dude snapped, he snapped.' 29 Mar 2012 George Zimmerman was fired from his job as an under-the-table security guard for "being too aggressive," a former co-worker told the Daily News.

Total: 'may be months' to stop North Sea gas cloud

Total: 'may be months' to stop North Sea gas cloud 27 Mar 2012 A cloud of explosive natural gas boiling up from the North Sea out of a leak at Total's evacuated Elgin platform forced another shutdown off the Scottish coast on Tuesday as the French firm warned it could take six months to halt the flow. Dubbed "the well from hell" by an environmentalist who said the unusually high pressure of the undersea reservoirs made it especially hard to shut off, the loss of oil and gas output from Elgin - as well as the prospect of a big repair bill - helped drive Total's share price down six percent on the Paris bourse.

DEA: Wannabe Cartel Hit Squad Included Former U.S. Soldiers 27 Mar 2012 A DEA sting operation targeting a cell of would-be cartel assassins ended in a violent warehouse showdown over the weekend. Among their ranks: one active-duty Army soldier, and one former G.I. According to a criminal complaint released yesterday in federal court, the showdown occurred around 12:30 p.m. Saturday as armed federal agents closed in on the group, who had just arrived at a warehouse in the border city of Laredo, Texas, traveling from Colorado Springs and the nearby Fort Carson military base. They believed they were meeting with members of the Zetas - in reality, undercover DEA agents.
