July 19, 2012 by legitgov

This while, Japanese company, Kansai Electric Power (KEPCO), is getting ready to restart a second reactor at the Oi plant in western Japan.

Airline catering firm that employs thousands in UK at centre of investigation into how NEEDLES were found in sandwiches on four flights --FBI launches criminal investigation into the needle discoveries 17 Jul 2012 The world's largest airline food caterer, which employs thousands of people in Britain, is today at the centre of an FBI investigation into how needles found their way into turkey sandwiches on four international flights. Gate Gourmet, which provides meals for more than 20 airlines including all long-haul British Airways flights from Heathrow, distributed the sandwiches that contained what appeared to be small sewing needles. The needles were discovered in six sandwiches on four U.S.-bound Delta Air Lines planes that departed Amsterdam Airport Schiphol on Sunday.

HSBC 'sorry' for aiding Mexican drug lords, rogue states and terrorists 17 Jul 2012 Executives with Europe's biggest bank, HSBC, were subjected to a humiliating onslaught from US senators on Tuesday over revelations that staff at its global subsidiaries laundered billions of dollars for drug cartels, terrorists and pariah states. Lawmakers hammered the British-based bank over the scandal, demanding to know how and why its affiliates had exposed it to the proceeds of drug trafficking and terrorist financing in a "pervasively polluted" culture that persisted for years. A report compiled for the committee detailed how HSBC's subsidiaries transported billions of dollars of cash in armoured vehicles, cleared suspicious travellers' cheques worth billions, and allowed Mexican drug lords buy to planes with money laundered through Cayman Islands accounts.

US setting up new radar station in Qatar [Oh. I thought there was a deficit?] 18 Jul 2012 The United States is constructing a missile defense radar station at a covert location in Qatar as part of the expansion of its military presence in the tiny Persian Gulf state. The Pentagon decided to set up the new radar station in Qatar since the country already hosts the Al Udeid Air Base, the largest US air base in the region. It is estimated that the construction of a pad for the radar, roads, barracks, and security measures at the site of the planned radar will cost $12.2 million.

Obama prejudiced WikiLeaks accused: lawyer

Obama prejudiced WikiLeaks accused: lawyer 18 Jul 2012 Comments by President Barack Obama about the soldier accused of the biggest intelligence leak in US history were prejudicial and sought to harm the suspect's defence, a court has heard. Other top figures, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and retired admiral Mike Mullen, the former head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, also made ill-advised remarks about Private Bradley Manning, it was alleged in court on Tuesday by civilian lawyer David Coombs. Obama's comment that Manning "broke the law", made at a political fundraiser in California last April, and other public statements were deliberately designed to inflict damage on the defence, Coombs said at Manning's pre-trial hearing at the Fort Meade military base in Maryland.

Arpaio: Obama birth record 'definitely fraudulent'

July 18, 2012 by legitgov

Arpaio: Obama birth record 'definitely fraudulent' 18 Jul 2012 Investigators for an Arizona sheriff's volunteer posse have declared that President Barack Obama's birth certificate is definitely fraudulent. Members of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's posse said in March that there was probable cause that Obama's long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April 2011 was a computer-generated forgery. Now, Arpaio says investigators are positive it's fraudulent. Mike Zullo, the posse's chief investigator, said numeric codes on certain parts of the birth certificate indicate that those parts weren't filled out, yet those sections asking for the race of Obama's father and his field of work or study were completed.

McCain: Palin was 'better candidate' than Romney

McCain: Palin was 'better candidate' than Romney 17 Jul 2012 Mitt Romney's tax returns had nothing to do with Sen. John McCain's decision to choose Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008, according to the Arizona Republican, saying he chose the former Alaska governor because she was a "better candidate." McCain received more than two decades worth of Romney's tax returns as the former Massachusetts governor was undergoing the vetting process four years ago, far more than Romney has released publicly in the 2012 campaign. Democrats have questioned whether McCain saw something untoward in those tax returns and decided to choose Palin instead.

Reid: 'Angry old white men' trying to buy elections

Reid: 'Angry old white men' trying to buy elections 16 Jul 2012 Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says a group of "angry old white men" is bankrolling conservative outside groups that are spending millions to influence the fall elections. "If this flood of outside money continues, the day after the election, 17 angry old white men will wake up and realize they've just bought the country," Reid said on the floor. "That's a sad commentary. About 60 percent or more of these outside groups' dollars are coming from these 17 people. These donors have something in common with their nominee. Like Mitt Romney, they believe they play by their own set of rules."

Lawyers for Bagram detainees seek habeas like at Guantanamo

Chains you can believe in: Lawyers for Bagram detainees seek habeas like at Guantánamo --About 3,200 prisoners reportedly are being held at Bagram 16 Jul 2012 Prisoners held without trial for years at an American air base in Afghanistan shouldn't be able to challenge their indefinite detention with the help of the U.S. Constitution, Obama administration attorneys argued Monday. Reinforcing a hard-line view that's prevailed in past court battles, the administration said again that the foreign-born detainees at Bagram Air Field lacked the habeas corpus rights that the U.S. Supreme Court has extended to those held at the American naval base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.

Polar Bear Lullabies

July 18, 2012 by legitgov

Polar Bear Lullabies 17 Jul 2012 Polar bears in Canada's western Hudson Bay are beginning to come ashore for the summer, four weeks earlier than the average return date during the 1980s. Because the ice in Hudson Bay melts completely during summer, the region's polar bears - which, like all members of the species, hunt seals on sea ice - spend the summer months holed up in cool earthen dens until the ice returns. Because sea ice has been melting earlier and forming later in the bay in recent years, bears have been forced to spend more time on land and less on the ice, reducing their ability to eat and raising concerns about the population's future... Here is video of Russian polar bear patrol officer and researcher Vladilen Kavriy singing two polar bears to sleep with a lullaby.

British soldiers swap Afghanistan for Olympic duty

British soldiers swap Afghanistan for Olympic duty 17 Jul 2012 More acclimated to patrolling the battlefields of Afghanistan than checking Olympic accreditations, smiling British troops fanned out across London's Olympic Park on Tuesday to fill the void left by a private contractor's failure to provide enough guards. Unarmed but in combat uniforms, soldiers with suntans acquired far from cloudy London were getting accustomed to their temporary theater of action, a former industrial wasteland transformed into Olympic venues and accommodation. With "London 2012" badges starting to join regimental insignia on uniforms, soldiers swapped machine guns for barcode zappers as they manned airport-style checkpoints to the park. Several said they had recently served a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

Court demands secret files on US 'black jails,' torture

Court demands secret files on US 'black jails,' torture 17 Jul 2012 The United States is facing fresh embarrassment over its use of 'black' detention sites after the European Court of Human Rights ordered Poland to hand over secret documents about its role in the War on Terror, The Daily Telegraph has learned. Judges in Strasbourg have requested documents that contain details of how the CIA set up its "extraordinary rendition" centre outside Warsaw in 2002 where it subjected al-Qaeda suspects to water-boarding and other extreme interrogation techniques. A month ago, a Polish whistle-blower alleged that a document existed which allowed the setting up of the prison – including procedures to adopt in the event of an inmate's death. It was said to have been signed by the head of Polish intelligence. According to the leak, American officials "laughed" and refused to sign the document. "They considered us amateurs and explained that this kind of business could not be dealt with by means of formal agreements," the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza reported.

HSBC Allegedly Financed al-Qaeda, Made Billions on Illegal US Drug Sales: Report

July 17, 2012 by legitgov

HSBC Allegedly Financed al-Qaeda, Made Billions on Illegal US Drug Sales: Report 17 Jul 2012 ...The result of the Senate's work, a nearly 400-page report, describes in exhaustive detail how HSBC Holdings Plc. executives repeatedly ignored warning signs from their own compliance officers, and from outside regulators, all of whom watched what they believed to be billions of dollars in suspicious transactions passing through the bank without adequate scrutiny. The report describes how HSBC's Mexican affiliate moved $7 billion in physical U.S. dollars through the bank in a two-year stretch, "raising red flags that the volume of dollars included proceeds from illegal drug sales in the United States." It lays out how HSBC's executives ignored warnings that it was providing currency to a Saudi bank alleged by some U.S. officials to be involved in financing al-Qaeda al-CIAduh.

Egyptians pelt Clinton motorcade with tomatoes 15 Jul 2012 Protesters threw tomatoes and shoes at Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's motorcade on Sunday during her first visit to Egypt since the election of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi. A tomato struck an Egyptian official in the face, and shoes and a water bottle landed near the armored cars carrying Clinton's delegation in the port city of Alexandria after she gave a speech on democratic rights. A senior U.S. official said neither Clinton nor her vehicle, which was around the corner from the incident, were hit by the projectiles, which were thrown as U.S. officials and reporters walked to the motorcade after her speech. [WHY is Mursi's religious affiliation noted before his title of 'President' - but no religious affiliation is added before Clinton's title?]

Was the petrol price rigged too?

July 16, 2012 by legitgov

Was the petrol price rigged too? 15 Jul 2012 Motorists may have been paying too much for their petrol because banks and other traders are likely to have tried to manipulate oil prices in the same way they rigged interest rates, an official report has warned. Concerns are growing about the reliability of oil prices, after a report for the G20 found the market is wide open to "manipulation or distortion". Traders from banks, oil companies or hedge funds have an "incentive" to distort the market and are likely to try to report false prices, it said. Politicians and fuel campaigners last night urged the Government to expand its inquiry into the Libor scandal to see whether oil prices have also been falsely pushed up.
