Apple deluged by police demands to decrypt iPhones

May 10, 2013 by legitgov

Apple deluged by police demands to decrypt iPhones --ATF says no law enforcement agency could unlock a defendant's iPhone, but Apple can 'bypass the security software' if it chooses. 10 May 2013 Apple receives so many police demands to decrypt seized iPhones that it has created a "waiting list" to handle the deluge of requests, CNET has learned. Court documents show that federal agents were so stymied by the encrypted iPhone 4S of a Kentucky man accused of distributing crack cocaine that they turned to Apple for decryption help last year. An agent at the ATF, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, "contacted Apple to obtain assistance in unlocking the device," U.S. District Judge Karen Caldwell wrote in a recent opinion. But, she wrote, the ATF was "placed on a waiting list by the company."

The assessment noted that there was "no credible, specific information indicating an imminent threat" to the race.

I cannot afford to lose any of my benefits due to the chained CPI cut in benefits..."

Sister Megan Rice, 83, Michael Walli and Greg Boertje-Obed were convicted Wednesday of interfering with national security and damaging federal property during last year's incursion. They cut through security fences, hung banners, strung crime-scene tape and hammered off a small chunk of the fortress-like Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility inside the most secure part of the complex.

Israel's deputy foreign minister asks Google to change 'Palestine' tagline 06 May 2013 Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister Ze'ev Elkin accused Google Inc. of recognizing a Palestinian state when it decided on May 1 to include Palestine in its list of options for national pages.

Navy Ship Can't Meet Mission, Internal U.S. Report Finds

May 8, 2013 by legitgov

Navy Ship Can't Meet Mission, Internal U.S. Report Finds 07 May 2013 U.S. Navy leaders were warned last year that a $37 billion program to build Littoral Combat Ships can't meet its promised mission because the vessels are too lightly manned and armed, according to a confidential report. "This review highlights the gap between ship capabilities and the missions the Navy will need LCS to execute," said the report prepared last year for the Navy by Rear Admiral Samuel Perez. "Failure to adequately address LCS requirements and capabilities will result in a large number of ships that are ill-suited to execute" regional commanders' warfighting needs. The 36-page report obtained by Bloomberg News is at odds with assurances from Navy leaders that their project is on course to deliver a small, speedy and adaptable ship intended to patrol waters close to shore.

Air Force sidelines 17 nuclear officers, Minot unit suffering 'rot' from within 08 May 2013 The Air Force stripped an unprecedented 17 officers of their authority to control - and, if necessary, launch - nuclear missiles after a string of unpublicized failings, including a remarkably dim review of their unit's launch skills. The group's deputy commander said it is suffering "rot" within its ranks. "We are, in fact, in a crisis right now," the commander, Lt. Col. Jay Folds, wrote in an internal email obtained by The Associated Press and confirmed by the Air Force. The tip-off to trouble was a March inspection of the 91st Missile Wing at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., which earned the equivalent of a "D" grade when tested on its mastery of Minuteman III missile launch operations.

He earned 54 percent of the vote to 45 percent for Colbert Busch, a businesswoman and first-time candidate whose brother is television satirist Stephen Colbert.

U.S. Weighs Wider Wiretap Laws to Cover Online Activity

May 8, 2013 by legitgov

U.S. Weighs Wider Wiretap Laws to Cover Online Activity 08 May 2013 he Obama administration, resolving years of internal debate, is on the verge of backing a Federal Bureau of Investigation plan for a sweeping overhaul of surveillance laws that would make it easier to wiretap people who communicate using the Internet rather than by traditional phone services, according to officials familiar with the deliberations. The F.B.I. director, Robert S. Mueller III, since 2010 has pushed for a legal mandate requiring companies like Facebook and Google to build into their instant-messaging and other such systems a capacity to comply with wiretap orders. While the F.B.I.'s original proposal would have required Internet communications services to each build in a wiretapping capacity, the revised one, which must now be reviewed by the White House, focuses on fining companies that do not comply with wiretap orders.

Pakistan Election 2013: Imran Khan Vows to Shoot Down US Drones If Elected [It's about time!] 04 May 2013 In the lead up to Pakistan's general election, which will take place on May 11, the former cricket star-turned-politician Imran Khan has again vowed to shoot down American drones if elected. Speaking at a rally in Swabi in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Khan, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman said that if U.S. drones entered Pakistani airspace, he would order the Pakistani Air Force (PAF) to shoot them down. And given that most recent polls show Khan ahead of Nawaz Sharif, president of the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) (previously thought to be the favorite) there is a very real chance that Khan will become Prime Minister.
