October 26, 2011 by legitgov

CIA to continue covert operations in Iraq 26 Oct 2011 As the US prepares to withdraw its forces from Iraq, the CIA is looking for ways to continue its secret so-called "counterterrorism" and intelligence programs inside the country. On October 21, President Barack Obama announced that all US forces would withdraw from Iraq by December 31 and "America's war in [on] Iraq will be over." US officials, however, have made it clear that the CIA plans to continue the programs, which have been run by the Joint Special Operations Command and other military organizations for years, in the country. These programs include different activities such as the deployment of remote sensors that scan the wireless spectrum of terrorist safe havens to stealth US-Iraqi counterterrorism commando teams [aka assassination squads].

More states sharply limiting Medicaid hospital stays 24 Oct 2011 A growing number of states are sharply limiting hospital stays under Medicaid to as few as 10 days a year to control rising costs of the health insurance program for the poor and disabled.

States defend the actions as a way to balance budgets hammered by the economic downturn tax cuts for the wealthy and corpora-terrorists and the end of billions of dollars in federal stimulus funds this summer that had helped prop up Medicaid, financed jointly by states and the federal government.
