April 30, 2012 by legitgov

RFK assassination witness tells CNN: There was second shooter --Witness says FBI altered her account of RFK shooting 30 Apr 2012 As a federal court prepares to rule on a challenge to Sirhan Sirhan's conviction in the Robert F. Kennedy assassination, a long overlooked witness to the murder is telling her story: She heard two guns firing during the 1968 shooting and authorities altered her account of the crime. Nina Rhodes-Hughes wants the world to know that, despite what history says, Sirhan was not the only gunman firing shots when Kennedy was murdered a few feet away from her at a Los Angeles hotel. "What has to come out is that there was another shooter to my right," Rhodes-Hughes said in an exclusive interview with CNN.

The Republican Party of Wisconsin recruited six candidates [whackjobs] — Gladys Huber, Isaac Weix, Gary Ellerman, Tamra Lyn Varebrook, James Engel and James Buckley — to run as Democrats in the recall elections.

Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I.

Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I. By David K. Shipler 29 Apr 2012 The United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years - or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts. But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.

To Joliet Jail for NATO offenders?

April 29, 2012 by legitgov

To Joliet Jail for NATO offenders? 29 Apr 2012 Mothballed for a decade, the Joliet Correctional Center could be temporarily reopened to serve as a detention facility for those arrested for serious offenses during the May 20-21 NATO summit. Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart says his first choice was to use Division 3 at Cook County Jail before the once-empty division had to be filled with detainees [?!?] over the last two months... Dart said the solution that makes the most sense is Joliet, the hulk of a prison facility mothballed in 2002.

Report: NATO Misleads With 'Afghan-Led' Label

April 29, 2012 by legitgov

Report: NATO Misleads With 'Afghan-Led' Label 25 Apr 2012 A new report Wednesday by a Kabul-based think tank accuses international forces of misleading the public by calling military operations "Afghan-led" even in cases where NATO or U.S. forces are the only troops on the ground. In the transition [NATO to hand over security to Afghan control], one phrase -- "Afghan-led" -- has become increasingly prevalent in NATO and U.S. news releases describing operations. The report charges alleges that the term has been so loosely applied that it has, in at least once instance, been used for an assault conducted entirely by U.S. troops.

UK police state gone wild: Surface-to-air missiles on top of flats to protect Olympics as part of huge security operation --Ministry of Defence confirmed missiles would be deployed within next few days 28 Apr 2012 Ground-to-air missiles are to be sited on the roof of a block of flats near the Olympic site as part of a huge security operation to protect the Games. The Army will station soldiers and high-velocity surface-to-air missiles on the residential block in East London to ward off airborne terror threats.

Senate probe finds little evidence of effective 'torture' 27 Apr 2012 A nearly three-year-long investigation by Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats is expected to find there is little evidence the harsh "enhanced interrogation techniques" the CIA used on high-value prisoners produced counter-terrorism breakthroughs. People familiar with the inquiry said committee investigators, who have been poring over records from the regime of President [sic] George W. Bush, believe they do not substantiate claims by some Bush supporters that the harsh interrogations led to counter-terrorism coups.

Failed Equipment, Flawed Designs Plague Lockheed Littoral Combat Ship

April 28, 2012 by legitgov

Failed Equipment, Flawed Designs Plague Lockheed Littoral Combat Ship 23 Apr 2012 POGO sent a letter today to the Senate and House Armed Services Committees recommending that an expensive and severely flawed variant of the Littoral Combat Ship program be eliminated. The letter comes on the heels of POGO's release of Navy documents revealing serious cracking and corrosion problems with the ship--along with evidence of dangerous equipment failures... There are two variants of the LCS: one built by a team led by General Dynamics, which will cost $345.8 million per ship and the other built by a team led by Lockheed Martin, which will cost $357.5 million per ship. As we've reported, the General Dynamics LCS has some problems with corrosion. But the Lockheed Martin version can hardly even make it out of the harbor. As we wrote in our letter, POGO has obtained a number of documents showing that Lockheed Martin's USS Freedom has been "plagued by flawed designs and failed equipment since being commissioned, has at least 17 known cracks, and has repeatedly been beset by engine-related failures." [End welfare for corpora-terrorists Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics!]

U.S. ban sought on cell phone use while driving

April 28, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. ban sought on cell phone use while driving 26 Apr 2012 U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood called on Thursday for a federal law to ban talking on a cell phone or texting while driving any type of vehicle on any road in the country. Tough federal legislation is the only way to deal with what he called a "national epidemic," he said at a distracted-driving summit in San Antonio, Texas, that drew doctors, advocates and government officials. LaHood has previously criticized behind-the-wheel use of cell phones and other devices, but calling for a federal law prohibiting the practice takes his effort to a new level.

Nancy Pelosi ways would back plan that cuts Social Security, Medicare 27 Apr 2012 Two progressive organizations have found themselves in the unusual position of being on the opposite side of House DemocRATic Leader Nancy Pelosi. Over the course of the past two years, the former House Speaker has been the most significant obstacle to the ongoing effort to slash entitlements and cut social spending. But a series of recent comments, and reports that Pelosi was willing to accept draconian cuts as part of a debt-ceiling deal, have liberals worried that their most powerful and passionate defender may be buckling on the issue.

House Passes Controversial Cybersecurity Measure CISPA

April 27, 2012 by legitgov

House Passes Controversial Cybersecurity Measure CISPA 26 Apr 2012 The House on Thursday approved cybersecurity legislation that privacy groups have decried as a threat to civil liberties. The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, sponsored by Reps. Mike Rogers (R-MI) and Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD), passed on a vote of 248 to 168. Its goal is a more secure internet, but privacy groups fear the measure breaches Americans' privacy along the way. The White House had weighed in on Wednesday, threatening a veto unless there were significant changes to increase consumer privacy. The bill was amended to provide more privacy protections, but it was not immediately clear whether the Senate or the White House would give the amended bill its blessing. [Yeah, right! Obusha will withdraw the veto threat and cower in the corner five picoseconds after the first Faux News pundit criticizes him.]

Cybersecurity bill passes despite concerns about personal data protection 26 Apr 2012 Ignoring a veto threat from the White House, the House passed legislation Thursday [CISPA] designed to protect communications networks from cyberattacks allow corpora-terrorists and USociopaths to censor the Internet. The vote was 248-168. But even as the House bill moves forward, privacy concerns about granting government agencies access to personal information transmitted on the Internet could prove to be a major obstacle to any new cybersecurity law. The Obama administration, many congressional Democrats, and numerous outside civil liberties advocates... worry the new rules allowing Internet companies to share information with the National Security Agency could give unfettered access by the intelligence community to data about any individual surfing the Web or sending e-mail.
