U.S. to review DEA unit that hides use of intel in crime cases

August 6, 2013 by legitgov

U.S. to review DEA unit that hides use of intel in crime cases 05 Aug 2013 The Justice Department is reviewing a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit that passes tips culled from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a large telephone database to field agents, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday. Reuters reported Monday that agents who use such tips are trained to "recreate" the investigative trail to effectively conceal the DEA unit's involvement from defense lawyers, prosecutors and even judges, a policy many lawyers said could violate a defendant's right to a fair trial. Federal drug agents call the process of changing the true genesis of an arrest "parallel construction," according to a training document. Although the DEA program may use legal means to collect and distribute the tips, critics say that by hiding the origin of a case, defendants may not know about potentially exculpatory evidence.

Manning's max possible sentence cut to 90 years 06 Aug 2013 A military judge has reduced Army Pfc. Bradley Manning's maximum possible sentence in the WikiLeaks case to 90 years in prison. Manning had faced up to 136 years in prison after he was convicted of charges related to his disclosure of classified information to the anti-secrecy website. But the judge, Army Col. Denise Lind, found during his sentencing hearing Tuesday that a number of the charges refer to the same actions and therefore were duplicative for sentencing purposes.

Starved polar bear perished due to record sea-ice melt, says expert

Starved polar bear perished due to record sea-ice melt, says expert 06 Aug 2013 A starved polar bear found found dead in Svalbard as "little more than skin and bones" perished due to a lack of sea ice on which to hunt seals, according to a polar bear expert. Climate change Global warming has reduced sea ice in the Arctic to record lows in the last year and Dr Ian Stirling, who has studied the bears for almost 40 years and examined the animal, said the lack of ice forced the bear into ranging far and wide in an ultimately unsuccessful search for food. "From his lying position in death, the bear appears to simply have starved and died where he dropped," Stirling said. "He had no external suggestion of any remaining fat, having been reduced to little more than skin and bone."

US urges citizens to leave Yemen 'immediately'

August 6, 2013 by legitgov

US urges citizens to leave Yemen 'immediately' 06 Aug 2013 The US State Department on Tuesday ordered all non-essential staff out of Yemen and told US citizens to leave the country "immediately" over terrorism concerns. The latest warning comes after the closure of some two dozen US missions across the Middle East and Africa and reports of intercepted messages from Al-Qaeda's top leader ordering its Yemen franchise to carry out an attack. Intercepts between 'Al-Qaeda chief Ayman Al-Zawahiri' and the leader of the group's Yemen affiliate sparked the closure of the US missions and a global travel alert, US media reported Monday. The New York Times said in its online edition that the electronic communications last week revealed that Zawahiri had ordered Nasser al-Wuhayshi, the head of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, to carry out an attack as early as this past Sunday. CNN meanwhile reported that Zawahiri told Wuhayshi to "do something," causing officials in both Washington and Yemen to fear an attack was imminent.

CLG: Al-Zawahiri is back from the dead, issuing new 'al-Qaeda' terror threats --You just can't keep a good terrorist down (or dead) for long, when the NSA's public relations department is in serious trouble! By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 06 Aug 2013 Five (or seven) years after his death, the ever-useful Ayman al-Zawahiri is baack, issuing new 'al-Qaeda' terror alerts! These new round of terror alerts issued by the Obama administration will provide cover for the next big, fat false flag which, in turn, will provide cover for the illegal surveillance activities of the NSA, CIA, FBI, and -- as we just learned -- the DEA. Here is the CLG compilation of many of the 're-killings' of this useful al-CIAduh operative, back from the media grave. The original item is titled, Al-Zawahiri is back from the dead again, giving interviews! By Lori Price 28 Nov 2008. It is reposted, below.

Because you just can't keep a good terrorist down: Al-Zawahiri re-emerges from the grave, issuing calls for 'lone wolf attacks in West' in new al-Qaeda video --Al Qaeda chief urges lone wolf attacks in U.S. and West -recording | 13 Sept 2015 | Seven (or nine) years after his death, Al Qaeda [al-CIA-duh] leader Ayman al-Zawahri called on young Muslim men in the United States and other Western countries to carry out attacks inside those countries in an audio recording posted online on Sunday. "I call on all Muslims who can harm the countries of the crusader coalition not to hesitate," Zawahri said referring to Western nations.

Pretty busy, for a dead guy:

Al-Zawahiri is back from the dead again, giving interviews! By Lori Price 28 Nov 2008 Zawahiri blames global financial crisis on 9/11 in latest al-Qaeda video 28 Nov 2008 Al-Qaeda's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has said in a new internet video that the international financial crisis is the result of a US war on Muslims and the Sept 11 attacks. Zawahiri also claimed the recent security gains made by US forces in Iraq were only temporary and Afghan President Hamid Karzai's offers to negotiate with Taliban elements were a sign of his regime's weakness.

Qaeda's Zawahri says U.S. wars behind financial crisis 28 Nov 2008 Al Qaeda's second-in-command said in an Internet video the U.S. financial crisis was caused by Washington's military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan and taxpayers were paying the price. "This crisis is one of...the series of American economic hemorrhages after the strikes of September 11...And these...will continue as long as the foolish American policy of wading in Muslim blood continues," Ayman al-Zawahri said on the video, posted on Islamist websites on Friday.

Re-killed Ayman al-Zawahiri is back in 'audio message,' taunting Obama By Lori Price 19 Nov 2008 The elusive, whack-a-mole al-Qaeda #2 is back again (from the dead)! Ayman al-Zawahiri criticized U.S. President-elect Barack Obama in an 'audio message' posted on the Internet, calling him dishonorable and a servant of whites, the Associated Press reported. The second-in-command of Islamic militant network al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] has called on Muslims to harm "criminal" America. You just can't keep a good terrorist down (or dead) for long, especially when Bush needs a terror attack/martial law before January 20.

Al-Qaeda Second-in-Command Criticizes Obama in Message, AP Says 19 Nov 2008 Al-Qaeda's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, criticized U.S. President-elect Barack Obama in an audio message posted on the Internet, calling him dishonorable and a servant of whites, the Associated Press reported. Al-Zawahiri said Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" such as Malcolm X, AP said. He also uses a derogatory racial term to imply Obama is a black American who does the bidding of whites, AP says. The recording, if its authenticity is confirmed, will be the first comment issued by al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] on the Democratic Party's election victory.

Al-Qaida No. 2 insults Obama with racial epithet 19 Nov 2008 Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader used a racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, using a demeaning racial term implying that the president-elect is a black American who does the bidding of whites. Ayman al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites, that Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader. In al-Qaida's first response to Obama's victory, al-Zawahri also called the president-elect -- along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice -- "house negroes." Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term "abeed al-beit," which literally translates as "house slaves." But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech [LOL!] that included the translation as "house negroes."

Al-Qaeda message condemns Obama 19 Nov 2008 The second-in-command of Islamic militant network al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] has called on Muslims to harm "criminal" America. In a message purportedly from Ayman al-Zawahiri, the al-Qaeda deputy accused US President-elect Barack Obama of betraying his Muslim roots. He likened him to a "house slave" - who had chosen to align himself with the "enemies" of Islam.

Injured, re-killed Ayman al-Zawahri is back! By Lori Price 29 Sep 2008 The elusive, whack-a-mole al-Qaeda #2 is 'visiting' a main operating base for al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Pakistan. You just can't keep a good terrorist down (or dead) for long, especially during the run-up to a US 'election!'

Taliban show no let up despite 8,000 soldiers in FATA 28 Sep 2008 Taliban hostilities show no sign of abating despite the deployment of 8,000 troops in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas and the army's claim of killing 1,000 Taliban, according to The Times. The newspaper said in a report on Saturday that a constant supply of fresh fighters from inside the country and across the border in Afghanistan is helping the Taliban to stay in the fight. Bajaur Agency is a main operating base for Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] and the Taliban. Pakistani intelligence believes that Ayman al-Zawahri, the second-in-command of Al Qaeda, has been a visitor.

Al-Qaeda No. 2 May be Injured, Possibly Re-killed --But Still Cranking Out Videotapes By Lori Price 08 Sep 2008 Al-Qaeda No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahri, was 'killed,' then wounded, then re-killed--but through all of his deaths and injuries, he is still able to produce videotapes. Whenever the GOP hits a bump in the road -- say, for example, the imminent implosion of Caribou Barbie -- al-Zawahri is reborn and healed and a busy little bee!

Al-Qaida accuses Iran of co-operating with U.S. 08 Sep 2008 Al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] marked the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks with a 90-minute video message Monday summarizing the state of jihad, or holy war, around the world and slamming Iran for collaborating with the United States. Short excerpts of the message were aired on the Arab satellite news channel Al-Jazeera. In them, al-Qaida Number 2, Ayman al-Zawahri, accused Iran of working with U.S. forces. Al-Zawahri said Tehran was "co-operating with the Americans in occupying Iraq and Afghanistan" and slammed Iran for recognizing the two governments. He also criticized the Shiites for not calling for a jihad in Iraq against the "Crusader occupier." In militant postings, "crusaders" is shorthand for U.S. troops in Iraq.

Timeline-Messages attributed to al Qaeda's Zawahri 08 Sep 2008 'Al Qaeda' has issued a video marking the September 11 attacks, in which deputy group leader Ayman al-Zawahri accuses Iran of taking part in a Western "Crusader" war against Islam, Al Jazeera television said on Monday. At least 50 messages have been broadcast by 'Osama bin Laden,' Zawahri and their allies since the September 11 attacks in 2001.

Al-Qaeda No. 2 May be Injured, Possibly Re-killed By Lori Price 02 Aug 2008 Four days after the CIA re-killed Abu Khabab al-Masri (aka Midhat Mursi) who 'died' in January 2006, CBS News 'exclusively reports' that al-Qaeda #2 (tons of those, btw) Ayman al-Zawahiri was injured and 'believed to be somewhere in Pakistan's remote tribal areas' (so he can be re-killed during a 'bad news' week for the Bush administration). Al-Zawarhiri has a US$25 million reward on his head.

Ayman al-Zawahiri Killed in Predator Strike? 02 Aug 2008 Al Qaeda number 2 Ayman al-Zawahiri was severely wounded in a US predator strike earlier this week, CBS is reporting. Ayman al-Zawahiri - the second most powerful leader in al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden's No. 2 - may be critically wounded and possibly dead, CBS News chief foreign affairs correspondent Lara Logan reports exclusively... A counter-intelligence expert and other U.S. officials confirmed to CBS News that the U.S. is looking into reports that al-Zawahiri is dead.

CBS News reports:

Exclusive: Al Qaeda No. 2 Injured? Unverified Letter Obtained By CBS News Urgently Requests Doctor to Treat Ayman al-Zawahiri 01 Aug 2008 Ayman al-Zawahiri - the second most powerful leader in al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] and Osama Bin Laden's No. 2 - may be critically wounded and possibly dead, CBS News reports exclusively. CBS News has obtained a copy of an intercepted letter from sources in Pakistan, which urgently requests a doctor to treat al-Zawahiri. He's believed to be somewhere in Pakistan's remote tribal areas. The letter refers to Sheikh Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri by name - and says that he is in "severe pain" and his "injuries are infected." It is reportedly written by local Taliban leader, Baitullah Mehsud, whose signature and seal are visible on the letter. The Taliban logo and the Mehsud's seal have been confirmed by experts as legitimate. The letter is dated July 29 - one day after a U.S. air strike that [re-]killed al Qaeda weapons expert Abu Khabab al-Masri, and five other Arabs in South Waziristan.

Telegraph.co.uk reports:

Al-Qaeda number two al-Zawahiri reported injured by US missile --Al-Qa'eda's deputy leader has been wounded and may even have died after a US missile strike in a tribal area along Pakistan's border with Afghanistan, according to a report. 02 Aug 2008 US broadcaster CBS said it had obtained an intercepted letter from a Pakistani Taliban commander requesting urgent medical help for Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden's right-hand man. Pakistan's military said it had no information about the report. Chief Pakistani military spokesman Major General Athar Abbas said: "There is no evidence or information in this regard. We have no reliable information." Al-Zawahiri has been mistakenly reported killed before in the remote and hostile area where he is believed to be hiding along with other surviving al-Qaeda leaders.

But, looky here!

Musharraf confirms 'al-Qaeda' hit 11 Feb 2006 Pakistan's president has confirmed that "a close relative" of al-Qaeda number two Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in a US air strike in Pakistan last month. Pervez Musharraf also confirmed for the first time that Zawahiri had been expected to be at the house targeted by the US, a military spokesman says. President Musharraf added that another wanted militant was among five foreigners killed in the bombing. Eighteen local people died in the raid, sparking widespread anger. "Five foreigners were killed in the US attack," Gen Musharraf told tribal leaders in north-western Pakistan, the Associated Press news agency reports. "One of them was a close relative of Ayman al-Zawahri and the other man was wanted by the US and had a US$5 million (4.19 million euro) reward on his head." Shortly after the raid, unconfirmed intelligence reports said three high-ranking al-Qaeda members were among those killed in the raid on a village in the Bajaur Agency region on the border with Afghanistan. They named Egyptian bomb expert Midhat Mursi - information on whose whereabouts carries a $5m US bounty. Border village When news of the attack first emerged, there were reports that Ayman al-Zawahiri had been killed. He has eluded capture since the US overthrew the Taleban in Afghanistan in 2001 - despite a $25m bounty on his head. Osama Bin Laden's second-in-command is regarded as the ideological brains behind the al-Qaeda network. The raid took place in the village of Damadola in the Bajaur tribal area, about 7km (4.5 miles) from the Afghan border.

US orders citizens to leave Yemen 06 Aug 2013 The US State Department has ordered citizens and non-emergency government staff to leave Yemen "immediately" due to security threats. It comes after the sudden closure of 20 US embassies and consulates on Sunday.

US embassy closures sparked by Ayman al-Zawahiri message 05 Aug 2013 The closure of US embassies across the Middle East was prompted by the intercept of unusual communication between al-Qaeda's leader [al-CIAduh's deceased boogey-man] and the head of its Yemen affiliate, it emerged last night. US intelligence picked up on messages in which Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden's successor, ordered Nasser al-Wuhayshi, the head of its Yemen branch, to carry out an attack. The messages represent rare coordination between al-Qaeda's core leadership, which is in hiding in Pakistan, and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the terror group's most dangerous offshoot. [OMG, this is absolute LUNACY. Al-Zawahiri has died so many times, CLG can't even keep track of his obituaries! --Lori Price]

Fukushima Emergency Declared as Radioactive Water Seeps Into Ocean 06 Aug 2013 Japan's top nuclear body on Monday warned that highly radioactive water is seeping into the ocean from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, triggering alarm bells over the plant's precarious state and the plant operator's ability to control the leak. In an interview with Reuters, head of the Nuclear Regulatory Authority task force Shinji Kinjo said contaminated groundwater has breached an underground barrier and is rising toward the surface, exceeding legal limits of radioactive discharge.

To show it means business, it has closed 21 embassies and consulates around the world. The US authorities say that "al-Qaeda" terrorists may attack Western targets this month. Where? Anywhere on the planet. How? Nobody knows. Why? That is a very good question. No specific information whatsoever about this alleged terror threat has been released.

Radioactivity levels in Fukushima groundwater increase 47-fold over 5 days 06 Aug 2013 Radioactivity levels soared 47-fold over just five days in groundwater from a monitoring well on the ocean side of the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, the plant operator said Aug. 5. Tokyo Electric Power Co. said 56,000 becquerels of radioactive substances, including strontium, were detected per liter of groundwater sampled on Aug. 5 in the "No. 1-5" monitoring well, which is adjacent to the turbine building for the No. 1 reactor. Highly radioactive water has been detected for some time in groundwater near reactor and turbine buildings of the nuclear plant.

According to state police, Jordan Rickard, 26, of Charlotte, N.C., was chosen for additional screening while walking through the security checkpoint. When TSA asked Rickard if he had anything in his pockets, Rickard replied "Yes, I have a bomb," police said.

U.S. directs DEA agents to cover up secret surveillance program used to investigate Americans

U.S. directs DEA agents to cover up secret surveillance program used to investigate Americans 05 Aug 2013 A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans. Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin - not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges. The undated documents show that federal agents are trained to "recreate" the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information originated, a practice that some experts say violates a defendant's Constitutional right to a fair trial.

Members of Congress denied access to basic information about NSA 04 Aug 2013 Members of Congress have been repeatedly thwarted when attempting to learn basic information about the National Security Agency (NSA) and the secret FISA court which authorizes its activities, documents provided by two House members demonstrate. From the beginning of the NSA controversy, the agency's defenders have insisted that Congress is aware of the disclosed programs and exercises robust supervision over them. But members of Congress, including those in Obama's party, have flatly denied knowing about them. Two House members, GOP Rep. Morgan Griffith of Virginia and Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida, have provided the Guardian with numerous letters and emails documenting their persistent, and unsuccessful, efforts to learn about NSA programs and relevant FISA court rulings.

Holy coincidence, Batman! Senior U.S. Official: Intercepted Al Qaeda Communications Indicate Planned Attack 'Big,' 'Strategically Significant' 04 Aug 2013 On the day that almost two dozen U.S. embassies and consulates across North Africa and the Middle East are closed following the identification of a significant threat from an 'al-Qaeda' affiliate, a senior U.S. official is providing new details about the communications intercepted from the terrorists, telling ABC News that al-Qaeda operatives could be heard talking about an upcoming attack. The official described the terrorists as saying the planned attack is "going to be big" and "strategically significant." [Right, it has to be 'big' and 'significant' enough to convince the public to support the NSA's illegal surveillance.]

Under the legislation, journalists wouldn't have to comply with subpoenas or court orders forcing them to reveal sources or confidential information unless a judge first determines there's reason to think that a crime has occurred and government officials have exhausted all other alternatives. It's the third time Congress has considered a "shield law" for journalists. Similar bills have failed despite bipartisan support.

U.S. Says Latest Terror Plot Targeted Western Interests 04 Aug 2013 Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Sunday the terrorism threat that led the Obama administration to close most of its embassies in the Middle East is more specific than other recent threats and was directed broadly at Western interests, not just those of the U.S. Comments from Gen. Dempsey and a range of lawmakers Sunday emphasized both U.S. concern about the threat and the lack of precise details unearthed by intelligence services. "There is a significant threat stream, and we are reacting to it," Mr. Dempsey said in an interview with ABC's show "This Week." The threat is coming from an "al Qaeda branch," he said. [Yeah, the 'branch' that's farmed out of Langley, Virginia.]

Based on information about a possible al Qaeda plot, the State Department closed more than 20 diplomatic posts and issued a worldwide travel alert on Friday. Top administration officials met late Saturday to discuss the threat. [Mega barf alert and gag me with a chainsaw! I wouldn't believe these dirt-bags if their tongues came notarized.

Source: CIA Was Smuggling Weapons to Syrian 'Rebels' During Benghazi Embassy Attack

Source: CIA Was Smuggling Weapons to Syrian 'Rebels' During Benghazi Embassy Attack 02 Aug 2013 The CIA was smuggling weapons from Libyan weapons depots to the Syrian rebels [aka cannibals and terrorists] during the 2012 attack on the US embassy in Benghazi. According to a report by CNN, an unnamed source has leaked that the alleged cover-up of the circumstances around the attack is to hide the reality of the smuggling, which occurred before the escalation of the Syrian civil war. This shows that the CIA has been arming the Syrian rebels since at least September 2012. The agents were running the operation out of the Benghazi "annex," which has been reported as a secret safehouse of the CIA in the city, not far from the embassy.
