Fuel tanker drivers in Britain voted for strike action on Monday to express their anger over their working conditions and health and safety regulations. The strike action would be the first nationwide strike in the sector in 12 years and could close up to 7,900 petrol stations across Britain.

March 27, 2012 by legitgov

As with Iraq and every other country USociopaths invade and occupy for Exxon Mobil and Blackwater: Billions in cash smuggled out of Afghanistan every year 26 Mar 2012 "It's hard to estimate exactly how much is going out of Afghanistan, but I can tell you in 2011, 4.5 billion was (flown) out of Afghanistan," said Khan Afzal Hadawal, deputy governor of the bank of Afghanistan. That is just what is moving out of the Kabul airport. It is estimated $8 billion in cash was lugged out of the country last year by car, private jets and border crossings. That is almost double the entire country's budget for 2011.

March 27, 2012 by legitgov

Army Tried to Delete Bales From Web After Arrest 22 Mar 2012 Besides waiting nearly a week before identifying the Army staff sergeant accused of killing 16 Afghan villagers, the U.S. military scrubbed its websites of references to his combat service. Gone were photographs of the suspect, Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, as well as a recounting in his base's newspaper of a 2007 battle in Iraq involving his unit, a report that quoted him extensively. But they weren't really gone. [*Duh.*] Despite the best efforts to remove it, the material about Bales was still available on the Internet, such as in cached versions of Web pages.

Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Mass. filed amicus brief in support of Obama's health-care law

March 26, 2012 by legitgov

Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Mass. filed amicus brief in support of Obama's health-care law --In SCOTUS case, Obamacare has industry allies 26 Mar 2012 Lawyers from the health insurance and hospital industries have petitioned the Supreme Court to save President Obama's health-care law from a constitutional challenge by 26 states and a small-business group, while other big-business lobbies have stayed neutral. Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts filed an amicus brief with the court in support of Obama's Department of Health & Human Services. The insurer writes that it played a central role in crafting Mitt Romney's Massachusetts health-care law that served as the prototype of Obamacare... On the question of constitutionality, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts argues that the individual mandate is "a valid exercise of the Commerce Power because Congress had a rational basis for concluding that, in the aggregate, the practice of self-insuring for the cost of health care substantially affects interstate commerce."

Court Opens 'Health-Care' Clash With Law That May End Case

March 26, 2012 by legitgov

If the US didn't have its busy-body nose in every country's business on the planet for Exxon Mobil and Blackwater, US citizens could have single-payer health care: Court Opens 'Health-Care' Clash With Law That May End Case 26 Mar 2012 The U.S. Supreme Court opened its historic arguments on President Barack Obama's health-care overhaul insurance cartel giveaway with several justices suggesting they are prepared to rule this year rather than wait for the law to take full effect. Justices including Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg today suggested they didn't view an 1867 law as barring them from ruling immediately on the central question, the law's requirement that Americans either get insurance or pay a penalty... The court is hearing three days of arguments on the 2010 law, Obama’s biggest legislative achievement [for Wall Street].

March 26, 2012 by legitgov

Too bad American sociopaths who commit war crimes don't have to compensate victims instead of US taxpayers: US Military quick with compensation for Afghan victims 25 Mar 2012 There has been a special payment bribe made by the Unites States government to relatives of 17 people who were killed in a shooting rampage in Afghanistan. A US soldier in southern Afghanistan, Robert Bales, is alleged to have shot many people, mostly of women and children, in cold blood.

Iraq locks down Baghdad before Arab summit --Baghdad residents irked by tighter security 25 Mar 2012 Iraq's government has locked down Baghdad ahead of this week's Arab League Summit, throwing up a maze of security checkpoints and roadblocks as it seeks to protect the capital from insurgent attacks. The three-day summit is the first of its kind to be held in Iraq in more than two decades. Entire streets in Baghdad have been closed, SWAT teams have been combing the city, the government has declared a five-day public holiday, and around 100,000 extra security forces have been drafted in to man hundreds of checkpoints.

Merah may not have been attached to al-Qaeda

March 26, 2012 by legitgov

Merah may not have been attached to al-Qaeda --Police said there was no sign he had been in contact with organized groups or 'jihadists.' 24 Mar 2012 Investigators in France have said a suggestion by gunman Mohamed Merah that he was linked to al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] may have been false. They have found no sign that the gunman was under the umbrella of al-Qaeda or any other militant terror group. In disputing Mohamed Merah's claim of terrorist ties police have had to fend off questions as to why they were not tracking Merah, who they had been aware of for many years due to his perceived dedication to radical Islam. [LOL, *awkward!* It becomes even *more* embarrassing for USociopaths when reports emerge that these supposed 'jihadists' are on the CIA payroll. <g>]

Fukushima Pref. deleted 5 days of radiation dispersion data just after meltdowns 22 Mar 2012 The Fukushima Prefectural Government revealed on March 21 that it deleted five days of early radiation dispersion data almost entirely unread in the wake of the meltdowns at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant. The data from the System for Prediction of Environmental Emergency Dose Information (SPEEDI) - intended to predict the spread of radioactive contamination, information vital for issuing evacuation advisories - was emailed to the prefectural government by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. The Nuclear Safety Technology Center sent the data hourly starting at 11:54 p.m. on March 12, 2011 - one day into the nuclear crisis. The Fukushima Prefectural Government, however, deleted all the data it received from March 12 to about 9 a.m. March 16.

France charges gunman's brother with terrorism --Detained last week, he will remain in custody pending further investigation. 25 Mar 2012 A Frenchman suspected of helping his brother plot attacks against Jewish schoolchildren and paratroopers was handed preliminary murder and terrorism charges Sunday. But Abdelkader Merah denied any role in the attacks. Investigators looking into France's worst terror attacks in years believe Merah helped his brother Mohamed prepare the killings, and are investigating whether they were linked to an international network of extremists or worked on their own. Abdelkader's lawyer said he feels like "a scapegoat."

Savage killing of Iraqi mother of five in California investigated as hate crime 25 Mar 2012 California police say an Iraqi-born mother of five who was beaten to death may have been the victim of a hate crime. The killer of Shaima Alawadi, 32, left a note reportedly reading: "Go back to your own country. You're a terrorist." Alawadi, an immigrant, died on Saturday after the attack last Wednesday. Her 17-year-old daughter, Fatima, told a local television station that her mother had been beaten on the head repeatedly with a tyre lever, and that the note said "go back to your country, you terrorist". The police confirmed a note had been found but did not release the details.

'No US-led trooper will face charges over Pakistan killings' 25 Mar 2012 The US military says no American soldier will face disciplinary charges for the US-led airstrikes that killed 24 soldiers in northwestern Pakistan last November. A second investigation into the incident carried out by the US military determined that no American military personnel should be punished in face of the deadly airstrikes, The New York Times reported on Saturday, citing three senior military officials. The American forces fired in self-defense and any other mistakes had been the result of battlefield confusion, the officials said.

Justice Dept. Broadens Investigations of Terrorism in Private Records

March 25, 2012 by legitgov

Justice Dept. Broadens Investigations of Terrorism in Private Records 23 Mar 2012 The U.S. Justice Department plans to extend the length of time intelligence agencies can retain records on private citizens, even if there is no evidence they are involved in terrorism. The guidelines Attorney General Eric Holder signed this week for the National Counterterrorism Center are raising complaints from privacy advocates. Until now, private information on Americans could be retained for no more than 180 days by the center. The new guidelines allow them to be kept for five years. In addition, intelligence officials will be able to make copies of the personal data and use it for data mining, which refers to using algorithms that find patterns indicating a propensity toward terrorism.

U.S.: Bales went on 2 shooting sprees

March 24, 2012 by legitgov

U.S.: Bales went on 2 shooting sprees 24 Mar 2012 American officials say U.S. investigators now believe the U.S. soldier accused of killing 17 Afghan civilians split the slaughter into two episodes - returning to his base after the first attack and later slipping away to kill again. This scenario seems to support the U.S. government's assertion lie -- contested by some Afghans [and anyone with an IQ above that of a desk lamp] -- that the killings were done by one person, since they would have been perpetrated over a longer period of time than assumed when Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales was detained March 11. But it also raises questions about how Bales could have carried out the slaughter without drawing attention from others on the American base in Kandahar province.

State Department Denies Cuban Diplomats' Visa Request to Attend Marxist Panel In New York 24 Mar 2012 The State Department says it has rejected applications from two senior Cuban diplomats to travel to New York to take part in a panel discussion sponsored by a Marxist group, but not for political reasons. [Yeah, right!] Rather, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says they were denied because American diplomats in Havana are routinely refused permission to travel outside the Cuban capital. The two diplomats from Cuba's interest section in Washington had asked to go to New York from March 16-18 to appear on a panel about Cuba sponsored by the magazine Marxism-Leninism Today.

Europol chief warns about 'lone wolf' jihadist threat

Europol chief warns about 'lone wolf' jihadist threat 24 Mar 2012 With France's deadly attacks, Islamic [sic] terror has apparently struck once more in the heart of Europe - and authorities say there's a dangerous twist: the emergence of homegrown extremists operating independent of any known networks, making them hard to track and stop. "We have a different kind of jihadist threat emerging and it's getting stronger," Europol chief Rob Wainwright told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from The Hague. "It is much more decentralized and harder to track." France's motorcycle gunman traumatized a nation heading into presidential elections and spread fear across the continent that the specter of al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] was once again threatening daily life.

French gunman once held in custody by US forces in Afghanistan

French gunman once held in custody by US forces in Afghanistan 22 Mar 2012 U.S. and French authorities said Mohammed Merah [the man suspected of murdering seven people who was killed in a shootout with police on Thursday] had traveled to Afghanistan around 2010 to obtain training from Islamic militants. He had spent time with militants along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border before being captured and returned to France. At some point after his capture, two other U.S. officials said, Merah was held in custody by U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The officials declined to give details of how and when this occurred and what happened to him next. French authorities said he traveled to Afghanistan again more recently, but returned to France on his own after contracting hepatitis.

Western countries scramble for Afghan exits 23 Mar 2012 As international forces prepare for withdrawal from Afghanistan, Western countries are already in talks with Afghanistan's Central Asian neighbors to bring their troops and military equipment back home.

As Santorum Fires Gun, Woman Shouts 'Pretend It's Obama' 23 Mar 2012 At a campaign stop at a firing range, while Rick Santorum was firing off some rounds, a woman shouted, "pretend it's Obama." Santorum, who was far from the woman, couldn't hear the comment as he proceeded with his target practice. Neither could his staffers. But the yell - the identity of the yeller is not clear, although the words were clearly audible - was in close proximity to journalists traveling with the candidate.
