Libor scandal: Barclays executive Jerry del Missier given8.75m-pound pay-off

July 30, 2012 by legitgov

Libor scandal: Barclays executive Jerry del Missier given £8.75m pay-off 25 Jul 2012 Jerry del Missier, the former Barclays Bank executive at the centre of the interest-rate rigging scandal that cost the lender £290m, has walked away with a pay-off of almost £9m. Mr del Missier, the bank's former chief operating officer who resigned three weeks ago, is understood to have negotiated the deal with Barclays' outgoing chairman Marcus Agius in the days before he quit. The pay-out looks certain to trigger another political storm over bankers' pay. Mr del Missier was one of Barclays' highest-paid executives, receiving a salary and bonus package for 2011 worth £6.7m plus a further £10.8m from share awards from previous years.

Mitt Romney backs Israeli military action against Iran 29 Jul 2012 Mitt Romney gave his backing to a unilateral Israeli military strike against Iran, insisting he would not stand-by while the "ayatollahs in Tehran" threatened to wipe the Jewish state "off the map". Seeking to salvage his pre-election world tour after a series of gaffes during his visit to London, the Republican presidential challenger indicated that he would not stand in Israel's way were it to launch an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities. He courted further controversy by proclaiming Jerusalem to be "the capital of Israel", a status not recognised by the United States or any foreign power because the eastern part of the city is also claimed by the Palestinians.

The request gave the potential suppliers only one day to submit their proposals and a 15-day delivery requirement to Alexandria, Virginia.

NSA wants to hire hackers

NSA wants to hire hackers 28 Jul 2012 Wearing a t-shirt and jeans, America's top spymaster -- National Security Agency Director Gen. Keith Alexander, also the head of the U.S. Cyber Command -- took the stage Friday at the nation's largest hacker convention to deliver a recruiting pitch. Alexander's appearance is a milestone for DefCon, a hacker mecca with an often-uneasy relationship with the feds. To hammer the point home, the NSA set up a special recruiting site for the show: http://www.nsa.gov/careers/dc20/. It's not your standard government careers page. This one includes the line: "If you have a few, shall we say, indiscretions in your past, don't be alarmed."

US sees Israel, tight Mideast ally, as spy threat 28 Jul 2012 The CIA station chief opened the locked box containing the sensitive equipment he used from his home in Tel Aviv, Israel, to communicate with CIA headquarters in Virginia, only to find that someone had tampered with it. He sent word to his superiors about the break-in. The incident, described by three former senior U.S. intelligence officials, might have been dismissed as just another cloak-and-dagger incident in the world of international espionage, except that the same thing had happened to the previous station chief in Israel.

Officials: Ebola breaks out in Uganda 28 Jul 2012 The deadly Ebola virus has killed 14 people in western Uganda this month, Ugandan health officials said on Saturday, ending weeks of speculation about the cause of a strange disease that had many people fleeing their homes. Kibaale is a district in midwestern Uganda, where people in recent weeks have been troubled by a mysterious illness that seemed to have come from nowhere [aka Fort Detrick]. On Friday, Joaquim Saweka, the WHO representative in Uganda, told The Associated Press that investigators were "not so sure" it was Ebola, and a Ugandan health official dismissed the possibility of Ebola as merely a rumor.

DARPA's Blue Angel - Pentagon prepares millions of vaccines against future global flu 28 Jul 2012 The Pentagon's DARPA lab has announced a milestone, but it doesn't involve drones or death missiles. Scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency say they've produced 10 million doses of an influenza vaccine in only one month's time. In a press release issued by the agency's office this week, scientists with DARPA say they've reach an important step in being able to combat spread a flu pandemic that might someday decimate the Earth's population. By working with the Medicago Inc. vaccine company, the Pentagon's cutting edge research lab says that they've used a massive harvest of tobacco plants to help produce a plethora of flu-fighting vaccines. [Am I the *only one* wondering: WHY is *DARPA* manufacturing vaccines? You would have to be *out of your mind* to allow an injection of *anything* concocted by the Pentagon!]

Greer said some GOP leaders were meeting to discuss ways they could suppress black votes while others were constantly scheming against each other.

Pakistan suspends NATO supply route over security 26 Jul 2012 Pakistan has temporarily stopped NATO supply trucks crossing its northwestern border into Afghanistan over security concerns due to fears of Islamist attacks, officials said Thursday. Gunmen on Tuesday attacked a convoy of NATO supply trucks, killing a driver, in the town of Jamrud near the main northwestern city of Peshawar, in the first such attack since Pakistan lifted a seven-month blockade of the border.

Ecuadorean officials invite Swedish authorities to London to interview Julian Assange 26 Jul 2012 The Wikileaks founder Julian Assange could yet avoid extradition for questioning over sexual assault allegations after Ecuadorean government officials invited the Swedish authorities to London, offering to host an interview there instead.

US report says Iraq 'rebuilders' died by hundreds --'Reconstruction' effort in Iraq cost US taxpayers about $62 billion 27 Jul 2012 In the first tally of its kind, a federal investigative agency has calculated that at least 719 people, nearly half of them Americans, were killed working on projects to rebuild Iraq following the U.S. invasion in 2003. The actual number of people killed doing reconstruction work is probably much higher than 719 but cannot be reliably determined, the Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction said in releasing its estimate Friday.

Conn. Man Rescues 80-Year-Old Lobster From Restaurant Menu 26 Jul 2012 A 17-pound lobster on a restaurant menu would be a delicious dinner option for most people but not for one Connecticut man who saw it as a humanitarian mission. Don MacKenzie of Niantic, Conn., purchased the lobster from a local restaurant [The Dock] but never took a bite. Instead, he released it back into the Long Island Sound Tuesday because he thought the lobster, nicknamed "Lucky Larry" by the locals, deserved to live.

Alabama asks court to back GOP-backed redistricting plan

July 27, 2012 by legitgov

Alabama asks court to back GOP-backed redistricting plan 26 Jul 2012 Alabama's attorney general filed a lawsuit Thursday asking a federal court to approve a redistricting plan for his Legislature without requiring the plan to go through the U.S. Justice Department for approval to make sure it doesn't discriminate against minority voters. The lawsuit seeks a declaratory judgment from a three-judge panel of U.S. District Court in Washington finding that the plan approved by the Alabama Legislature during a special session in May does not deny or abridge the right to vote based on race or color. Democrats in the Legislature have complained that the plan passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature was written to favor Republicans and packed black voters in some districts while leaving them with little influence in other districts. Senate Minority Leader Roger Bedford, D-Russellville, said the attorney general's office wants to avoid the justice department's preclearance process because the Legislature "passed a racially gerrymandered plan."

Mitt the twit

Mitt the twit --Wannabe US President Romney in Games insult, but David Cameron insists: We'll show you 27 Jul 2012 Wannabe president Mitt Romney infuriated Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday by making a string of embarrassing blunders. The US election hopeful, on a visit to London, questioned whether the Olympics will be a success. Mr Romney said in a TV interview: "It's hard to know just how well it will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting." The Republican candidate, who organised the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, also questioned whether the British people will "come together and celebrate" the Olympics.

Boris Johnson chides Mitt Romney over London Olympics 26 Jul 2012 The mayor of London has hit out at US presidential candidate Mitt Romney for comments suggesting Britain is not ready to stage the Olympic Games. "I hear there's a guy called Mitt Romney who wants to know whether we're ready," Boris Johnson told a crowd of tens of thousands of people who had gathered in Hyde Park, in central London. "He wants to know whether we're ready. Are we ready? Are we ready? Yes, we are!" Earlier, in an interview with US network NBC, Mr Romney said London's difficulties with security guards and threats of border staff strikes were "obviously... not something which is encouraging".

Mitt Romney's Olympics blunder stuns No 10 and hands gift to Obama 26 Jul 2012 Mitt Romney handed Barack Obama a potential gift for the US presidential election campaign when the presumptive Republican nominee blundered on his first diplomatic outing by questioning whether London was capable of staging a successful Olympic Games. In a move that astonished Downing Street, hours before it laid on a special reception for Romney at No 10, he told NBC there were "disconcerting" signs about the preparations for the Games. One senior Whitehall source said: "What a total shocker. We are speechless." David Cameron wasted no time in rebuking Romney hours after his remarks were broadcast. On a visit to the Olympic Park, the prime minister said: "We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities in the world. Of course it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere."

Mitt Romney's Olympics gaffe overshadows visit to London 26 Jul 2012 Mitt Romney's visit to Downing Street was overshadowed by a diplomatic spat on Thursday, after the Republican presidential candidate cast doubt over London's readiness to host the Olympics. Elevating his tendency for gaffes to the international stage, Mr Romney said that because of concerns about security, it was "hard to know just how well it will turn out". He then appeared to breach protocol by disclosing that he had received an unusual briefing from Sir John Sawers, the chief of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), on the situation in Syria. An adviser boasted to The Daily Telegraph that Mr Romney had also previously met the head of the Security Service (MI5).

CIA and FBI establish threat center in London; Secret Service to enforce Trespass Act in Britain? 26 Jul 2012 The US is sending its top spies from the CIA, FBI and other agencies to aid UK authorities during the Olympic games. British security officials have joined forces with America's top federal intelligence agencies to establish a "threat integration center" in the UK. Experts with America's Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation and National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) are teaming with British security officials from Scotland Yard, MI-5 and MI-6 to identify and analyze potential threats that could target the games, set to begin Friday. The US Secret Service will also be in London to provide security for athletes and dignitaries attending the festivities, which could open international protesters demonstrating the either American athletes or US policy to be subject to HR 347, dubbed the Trespass Act.

Anonymous hackers cripple Aussie government websites --Hackers took 10 sites offline, said more attacks are imminent [<g>] 25 Jul 2012 International hacking group Anonymous took at least 10 Australian government websites offline in a series of escalating attacks over proposed changes to privacy laws. The Australian arm of the group has warned it will continue the attacks on ".gov.au" sites until any plans to force ISPs to store user data and make it further available to security services are shelved. The attacks started after Prime Minister Julia Gillard answered policy questions via webcam in an online Google+ Hangout session on Saturday but the sites targeted so far are all run by the Queensland State Government.

Justice Department to seek new indictment of Blackwater guards in Iraq shooting 25 Jul 2012 The Justice Department plans to bring a new indictment against four Blackwater Worldwide guards involved in a 2007 shooting that killed 17 Iraqis. U.S. District Judge Ricardo Urbina had thrown out the case in 2009, but an appeals court reinstated the charges last year. A Justice Department attorney told Judge Royce Lamberth on Wednesday that a special team will ensure that prosecutors working on the new indictment don't have access to "privileged statements." Prosecutors say they will seek a superseding indictment after gathering additional evidence.
