April 26, 2012 by legitgov

Bradley Manning loses 2 more rounds in motions hearing 26 Apr 2012 Pfc. Bradley Manning's attorneys failed again Thursday in their attempts to persuade a judge to throw out some of the charges against him. Manning is the Army intelligence analyst suspected of leaking hundreds of thousands of classified military and State Department documents while serving in Iraq. Many of those documents ended up on the WikiLeaks website. Among the motions filed by Manning's legal team is one addressing what the attorneys call "unreasonable multiplication of charges" in the 16 specifications he is facing for the second charge against him. Each specification carries a 10-year maximum sentence.

April 26, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. high court appears to back Arizona on immigration 25 Apr 2012 Conservative justices who hold a majority on the U.S. Supreme Court appeared to endorse Arizona's immigration crackdown on Wednesday, rejecting the Obama administration stance that the federal government has sole power over those who illegally enter the United States. During 80 minutes of oral arguments, the justices suggested by their questions and comments that states have significant latitude to adopt laws that discourage illegal immigrants from moving to and staying in the country. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who often casts the deciding vote, referred to the "social and economic disruption" that states endure as a result of a flood of illegal immigrants and suggested that states such as Arizona have authority to act.

April 26, 2012 by legitgov

2 House Democrats Defeated After Opposing Health Law 26 Apr 2012 The defeat of two conservative House Democrats by more liberal opponents in Tuesday's Pennsylvania primary illustrates the strong hold the new health care law still has over committed Democratic voters and foreshadows an even more polarized Congress next year in the aftermath of the latest round of redistricting. Representatives Jason Altmire and Tim Holden both lost in primaries to opponents who joined together with activist groups to pummel the veteran lawmakers over the opposition to the new health care law and climate change legislation - positions they had used to their advantage in the past to show their independence from President Obama and the Democratic Party.

Ex-spy: Destroying CIA tapes purged 'ugly visuals' 24 Apr 2012 The retired top CIA officer who ordered the destruction of videos showing waterboarding says in a new book that he was tired of waiting for Washington's bureaucracy to make a decision that protected American lives. [Sociopath] Jose Rodriguez, who oversaw the CIA's once-secret interrogation and detention program, also lashes out at President Barack Obama's administration for calling waterboarding torture and criticizing its use. "I cannot tell you how disgusted my former colleagues and I felt to hear ourselves labeled 'torturers' by the president of the United States," Rodriguez writes in his book, "Hard Measures."

April 26, 2012 by legitgov

Gingrich to suspend presidential bid Tuesday 25 Apr 2012 Newt Gingrich began taking steps Wednesday to shut down his debt-laden presidential bid, setting the stage to endorse one-time rival Mitt Romney next week and rally the GOP behind its apparent nominee. Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond said the former House speaker spoke with Romney on Wednesday and had started planning an event where he would throw his support behind the likely nominee. Gingrich had pinned his hopes on a strong showing in Delaware that did not materialize after the polls closed Tuesday night. On Wednesday morning, he acknowledged to North Carolina voters that his White House dreams were effectively over.

Five held in Luton 'terror cell' raids --Cops and MI5 swoop to thwart feared [fabricated] attacks 25 Apr 2012 Five suspected terror plotters were being quizzed last night — after police and MI5 swooped in the al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] "hotbed" of LUTON. The men -- targets of an intelligence operation lasting eight months - were being grilled amid fears that terror attacks were planned. They were seized at separate addresses in the Bedfordshire town and whisked 30 miles to a top-security police station in London. Top brass ordered the raids over a plot that was feared to be increasingly taking shape. Their homes are understood to have been searched previously -- last September -- but no arrests were made at that time.

Did MI6 spy really die alone? DNA found on bag may place second person at scene 25 Apr 2012 Video footage of Gareth Williams's death scene was shown in a court yesterday, which included shots of a bag with the body of Gareth Williams still inside. Examination of the red North Face sports holdall also showed traces of the DNA of another person on the zip toggle and the padlock, the inquest into the computer specialist's death was told... A graphic impression showed the way 34-year-old Mr Williams was found inside the bag – in a foetal position lying on his back, naked, with his knees raised and arms folded across his chest. The key to the padlock was under his right buttock, making it "incredibly difficult" for him to have reached it in an attempt, somehow, to escape.

Mega barf alert: New case of mad cow disease in California 25 Apr 2012 The first new case of mad cow disease in the US since 2006 has been discovered in a dairy cow in California, but health authorities said the animal never posed a threat to the nation's food supply.

Japan fears nuclear plant sits atop active geological fault 25 Apr 2012 A nuclear plant in northwestern Japan may be sitting right on top of an active geological fault, the country's nuclear watchdog has said, raising the risk that the facility may never resume power generation for fear of an earthquake. The fault fracture zone under the No.1 and No.2 units of the 1,517-megawatt Tsuruga plant could be an active fault that could move jointly with a confirmed nearby active fault, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) found in a site survey on Tuesday, a spokesman for the plant's operator said.

Karl Rove Buys 5 More States for Mitt Romney --After 5 More Contests, Romney Solidifies Lead 25 Apr 2012 Mitt Romney effectively assumed the helm of the Republican Party on Tuesday after five primary victories across the Northeast solidified his stature as the presidential nominee-in-waiting who is trying to unite conservatives and persuade independent voters that President Obama does not deserve a second term.

Padilla takes torture case to US Supreme Court 24 April 2012  US citizen Jose Padilla, who was jailed for four years as an "enemy combatant" and claims to have been tortured, has asked the Supreme Court to reinstate his civil case against top US officials. His bid to sue former and present officials including Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and former secretary Donald Rumsfeld was rejected by an appeals court in January, which said they enjoyed official immunity. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Padilla's mother Estela Lebron appealed the ruling. Padilla is in a maximum-security prison in Colorado after being convicted in 2007 of aiding a homegrown Al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] cell.

Bradley Manning lawyer says case 'mishandled' as hearings continue 24 Apr 2012 Bradley Manning, the US soldier accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of secret state documents to WikiLeaks, will face his military detractors again on Tuesday at the start of up to three more days of procedural hearings ahead of a full court martial. Manning's lawyer, David Coombs, has filed several defence motions with the military court in Fort Meade, Maryland, that call for all 22 charges against his client to be dismissed on grounds that the prosecution has mishandled the case. The lawyer will argue that the proceedings have been beset by delays and by refusal to hand over key documents during the discovery process, which he will say is a violation of the military rule book for court martials.

Army major's despair at our 'pointless war': Senior officer's damning emails reveal plummeting morale at heart of Afghan campaign that has cost 409 British lives 21 Apr 2012 They are stark words that reveal the despair of our forces fighting in Afghanistan. Emails sent to a former military chaplain paint a damning picture of sinking morale among Servicemen who feel the human cost of the conflict can no longer be justified. Dr Peter Lee, a university lecturer who spent seven years as an RAF padre, has released the emails to highlight the extent of disillusionment within the ranks. The correspondence includes two emails sent by a major on the brink of a fresh deployment to the region. He likens the prospect to 'being put on for the last two minutes of a lost game' of rugby.
