Federal Money Linked to NYPD's Muslim Surveillance Program

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

Federal Money Linked to NYPD's Muslim Surveillance Program 27 Feb 2012 The Associated Press reports that the New York Police Department's controversial program to monitor Muslim neighborhoods and organizations was funded, at least in part, by White House grants meant to pay for the drug war. The money was given to the NYPD through the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program, which was established years ago to fight gangs and drug trafficking. After September 11, 2001, however, local authorities were permitted to redirect some of that money to fight terrorism. The HIDTA has given out around $2.3 billion over the last 10 years, with about $135 million given to officials in the New York/New Jersey metro area.

Scientific evidence unearthed by Scottish legal review undermines Lockerbie case

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

Another historical narrative baked in a CIA false flag bites the dust: Scientific evidence unearthed by Scottish legal review undermines Lockerbie case --Secret legal files show that conviction in aircraft bombing case would probably have been overturned. 27 Feb 2012 Fresh scientific evidence unearthed by a Scottish legal review undermines the case against the man convicted of being responsible for the Lockerbie aircraft bombing, an investigation for Al Jazeera has found. The Scottish Criminal Case Review Commission (SCCRC) report details evidence that would probably have resulted in the verdict against Abdel Baset al-Meghrahi, a Libyan man convicted of carrying out the bombing of Pan-Am flight 103 in 1988, being overturned. 'Lockerbie: Case Closed', a documentary to be aired on Al Jazeera on Monday, examines the evidence uncovered by the SCCRC as well as revealing fresh scientific evidence which is unknown to the commission but which comprehensively undermines a crucial part of the case against the man known as the Lockerbie bomber.

WikiLeaks releases first 200 of 5m Stratfor emails

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

WikiLeaks releases first 200 of 5m Stratfor emails 27 Feb 2012 WikiLeaks has released the first 200 of a cache of 5m emails obtained from the servers of Stratfor, a US-based intelligence firm. The emails originated not from a whistleblower, but instead from a series of hacking attacks against Stratfor in December 2011, carried out by the online activist collective Anonymous. Anonymous apparently passed the emails to WikiLeaks in the weeks following the attack. The whistleblowing website then recruited, according to its statement, 25 media partners to work on the document cache.

Obama using Espionage Act to 'silence and prosecute federal workers' - NYT

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

Obama using Espionage Act to 'silence and prosecute federal workers' - NYT 27 Feb 2012 The Obama administration, which promised during its transition to power that it would enhance "whistle-blower laws to protect federal workers," has been more prone than any administration in history in trying to silence and prosecute federal workers. The Espionage Act, enacted in 1917 to punish those who gave aid to US enemies, has been used six times since the current president took office. In the most recent case, John Kiriakou, a former C.I.A. officer who became a Democratic staff member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was charged under the Espionage Act with leaking information to journalists about other C.I.A. officers, some of whom were involved in the agency's interrogation program, which included waterboarding. For those of you keeping score, none of the individuals who engaged in or authorized the waterboarding of terror suspects have been prosecuted, but Mr. Kiriakou is in federal cross hairs, accused of talking to journalists and news organizations, including The New York Times.

Report: Gov't 'collapsed' during Japan nuclear crisis 27 Feb 2012 Today, a report revealed the chaos between Japan's leaders during the Fukushima nuclear crisis. "The normal lines of authority completely collapsed," Tetsuro Fukuyama, the prime minister's adviser, told investigators.

As a last-ditch effort, the Japanese government discussed "suicide squad" made up of men over 65 years old to ascertain the damage first hand. Fukuyama said he would lead the group.

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

Murdoch tabloid established 'network of corrupted officials', police chief says 27 Feb 2012 Rupert Murdoch's flagship tabloid, the Sun, established a "network of corrupted officials" and created a "culture of illegal payments", the police officer leading the investigation into bribery and hacking at News International has alleged. On a day of dramatic developments surrounding the investigations into the tycoon's newspapers, Sue Akers, the deputy assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan police, told the Leveson inquiry into press standards there had been "multiple payments" by the Sun to public officials of thousands of pounds, and one individual received £80,000 in alleged corrupt payments over a number of years.

February 27, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. opening up airspace to use of drones --Currently, UAVs can only fly in restricted airspace zones controlled by U.S. military 23 Feb 2012 Legislation passed by Congress last week gives the Federal Aviation Administration until Sept. 30, 2015, to open the nation’s skies to drones. The first step comes in 90 days when police, firefighters and other civilian first-response agencies can start flying UAVs weighing no more than 4.4 pounds, provided they meet still-to-be-determined requirements... By May 2013, the next class of drones, those weighing less than 55 pounds, can fly the nation's skies, according to provisions of the FAA bill passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama last week.

UK prepares for military strike against Iran: The Sun 26 Feb 2012 The United Kingdom has reportedly drawn up plans to send hundreds of troops and an extra nuclear submarine to the Persian Gulf amid escalating war threats against the Islamic Republic. "MoD planners went into overdrive at the start of the year. Conflict is seen as inevitable as long as the regime (Iran) pursue their nuclear ambitions," The Sun quoted a senior Whitehall official as saying on Sunday. "Britain would be sucked in whether we like it or not," the official added. The report said a military attack against Iran is "a matter of when not if... with 18 to 24 months the likely timescale."

February 27, 2012 by legitgov

WikiLeaks begins publishing 5 million emails from STRATFOR 26 Feb 2012 Today (27 Feb) WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files – more than five million emails from the Texas-headquartered "global intelligence" company Stratfor. The emails date from between July 2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal's Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defense Intelligence Agency. Stratfor... emails reveal private intelligence staff who align themselves closely with US government policies and channel tips to the Mossad – including through an information mule in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Yossi Melman, who conspired with Guardian journalist David Leigh to secretly, and in violation of WikiLeaks' contract with the Guardian, move WikiLeaks US diplomatic cables to Israel.

'US to announce aerial blockade on Syria'

February 27, 2012 by legitgov

'US to announce aerial blockade on Syria' 25 Feb 2012 The Pentagon is readying for the possibility of intervention in Syria, the newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported Saturday, citing a US military official. According to the official, the intervention scenario calls for the establishment of a buffer zone on the Turkish border, in order to receive Syrian refugees. The measure would pave the way for the US to declare an aerial blockade on Syria. The next step in the reported US Department of Defense plan would be to appoint a team of UN observers to monitor the 'humanitarian' military aid, and enter Syria. They would need aerial protection, which would eventually lead to an aerial blockade.

The identity of those responsible for the attack has not been confirmed [LOL! That's because they don't know who they are.], but activists allied to the loose-knit Anonymous movement had threatened to target federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews and others over the Harper government's controversial online surveillance bill.

Army Could Replace Contractors With Soldiers to 'Re-Green' Service

Army Could Replace Contractors With Soldiers to 'Re-Green' Service 24 Feb 2012 The Army needs to fix a system that gives soldiers more credit for operational positions than for "career-broadening" assignments, said Gen. Bob Cone, head of the Army's Training and Doctrine Command. He also said he wants today's soldiers to begin retaking the places now held by civilians and contractors in the "institutional Army" so they can directly pass on what they've learned in Iraq and Afghanistan. Cone wants to shape a postwar Army that will continue to change after more than a decade of fighting.

Report: U.S. warns Syria's neighbors of rogue WMDs after Assad ouster

February 26, 2012 by legitgov

Report: U.S. warns Syria's neighbors of rogue WMDs after Assad ouster 25 Feb 2012 The United States is coordinating with Syria's neighbors to safeguard Syrian President Bashar Assad's [alleged] stockpile of weapons of mass destruction in the event Assad is ousted by popular unrest, Foreign Policy reported on Friday. Assad's reported stockpile of chemical and biological weapons has been a cause for concern ever since the onset of his 11-month violent crackdown on [CIA-backed] opposition protests. Earlier this month, 'opposition sources' reported that Syria's military has begun stockpiling chemical weapons and equipping its soldiers with gas masks near the city of Homs. [Next, we'll be hearing that 'Assad is pulling babies from their incubators' because that propaganda worked so well the first time it was disseminated.]

Iran military official: Only burning White House can make up for burning Koran 25 Feb 2012 The Muslim world should not accept an apology issued by U.S. President Barack Obama over the burning of Korans in an American base in Afghanistan, a top Iranian military commander said on Saturday, adding that nothing short of "burning the White House can relieve the wound of us." Obama's Thursday apology in a letter to Afghan President Hamid Karzai sought to quell spiraling furor among Afghans, who have been protesting the act for five straight days, after Afghan workers found charred copies of the Muslim holy book on a military base near Kabul.

U.S. Agencies See No Move by Iran to Build a Bomb

February 26, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Agencies See No Move by Iran to Build a Bomb 25 Feb 2012 Even as the United Nations' nuclear watchdog said in a new report Friday that Iran had accelerated its uranium enrichment program, American intelligence analysts continue to believe that there is no hard evidence that Iran has decided to build a nuclear bomb. Recent assessments by American spy agencies are broadly consistent with a 2007 intelligence finding that concluded that Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program years earlier, according to current and former American officials. The officials said that assessment was largely reaffirmed in a 2010 National Intelligence Estimate, and that it remains the consensus view of America's 16 intelligence agencies.

Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, to have the task force also examine conditions under which Wyoming would need to implement its own military draft, raise a standing army, and acquire strike aircraft and an aircraft carrier.

NYPD Surveillance of Students Called 'Disgusting' 25 Feb 2012 At Columbia University and elsewhere, the fear among students that the New York Police Department might secretly be infiltrating their lives has spread beyond the Muslim student population to others who find the reported tactics "disgusting," as one teenager put it. The NYPD surveillance of Muslims on a dozen college campuses in the Northeast is a surprising and disappointing violation, students said Saturday in reaction to Associated Press reports that revealed the intelligence-gathering at Columbia and elsewhere.

Little alligator grins from ear-to-ear as he gets a ride down the river on his mother's head 24 Feb 2012 It certainly beats having to learn the art of swimming. This baby alligator did not feel like getting his feet wet when his mother wanted to go for a swim. So the crafty creature simply climbed on her head and hitched a ride instead. After a spell enjoying the warm Texan sunshine, the mother alligator decided to go for a quick dip to cool off from the heat. But her grinning offspring was having none of it - and climbed on top of her head knowing she would keep it above the surface so he could soak up some more sun.
