May 30, 2012 by legitgov

Turkish court charges senior IDF officials over Gaza flotilla deaths 28 May 2012 A Turkish court on Monday formally pressed charges against members of Israel's military for the killing of nine people aboard a Turkish ship trying to break Israel's blockade of Gaza in 2010, Turkey's state-run news agency said. The court in Istanbul voted unanimously to approve an indictment against Israel's former military chief Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, along with the former heads of its navy, air force intelligence,  and military intelligence,  Eliezer Marom, Amos Yadlin, and Avishai Levi, the Anadolu Agency said. They face nine consecutive life terms in prison for "inciting to kill monstrously, and by torturing," the agency added.

Afghan market flourishing with coalition goods 25 May 2012 At Camp Eggers, the headquarters of NATO's training mission in Afghanistan, shelves at the U.S. military store grow ever more bare as Pakistan's halt on coalition supply shipments drags into its sixth month. But while most troops here don't know it, there's no shortage of coalition supplies in Afghanistan's capital city. The only problem is, those supplies aren't on coalition bases. This is Kabul's "Bush Market" - a name bearing an unsubtle hint about the origins of its merchandise - a one-stop shop... all at discount prices.

May 30, 2012 by legitgov

New computer virus hits Iran, West Bank in unprecedented cyber attack 28 May 2012 Internet security company Kaspersky Lab announced on Monday that it had uncovered a 'cyber-espionage worm' designed to collect and delete sensitive information, primarily in Middle Eastern countries. Kaspersky called the malware, named "Flame," the "most sophisticated cyber-weapon yet unleashed." It said the bug had infected computers in Iran, the West Bank, Sudan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. The company also said that Flame contained a specific element that was used in the Stuxnet worm and which had not been seen in any other malware since.

"Israel is blessed as being a country rich with high-tech, these tools that we take pride in open up all kinds of opportunities for us," he added.

$55 million for conservative campaigns -- but where did it come from?

May 29, 2012 by legitgov

$55 million for conservative campaigns -- but where did it come from? 28 May 2012 The financial firepower that fueled the rise of a network of conservative advocacy groups now pummeling Democrats with television ads can be traced, in part, to Box 72465 in the Boulder Hills post office, on a desert road on the northern outskirts of Phoenix. That's the address for the Center to Protect Patient Rights, an organization with ties to Charles and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers [Grade 'A' sociopaths] who bankroll a number of conservative organizations. During the 2010 midterm election, the center sent more than $55 million to 26 GOP-allied groups, tax filings show, funding opaque outfits such as American Future Fund, 60 Plus and Americans for Job Security that were behind a coordinated campaign against Democratic congressional candidates.

Heads up! USociopaths are trolling for new wars: US military warns Syria as pressure builds on Obama --Top US general warns military is prepared to act if 'necessary' 28 May 2012 The US's top military officer has warned Syria it could face armed intervention as international outrage grows over the massacre of women and children by [non-Bashar] tanks and artillery in Houla. General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, said that following the UN security council's condemnation of the slaughter – in which more than 100 people were killed – there needed to be increased diplomatic pressure on Damascus. But he added that the US would be prepared to act militarily if it was "asked to do so". [LOL! The only sociopaths to 'ask' for US 'help' would be other preadators, such as ExxonMobil, Blackwater or Israel.]

Obama personally oversees Al-Qaeda kill list: New York Times 30 May 2012 U.S. President Barack Obama has personally overseen a top-secret process for determining which Al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] suspects should be placed on a "kill list," the New York Times reported Tuesday. The Times, citing dozens of top officials and former advisers, said the administration had developed what it termed the "kill list" as part of a stepped-up drone war against Al-Qaeda and its affiliates in Pakistan and Yemen. "He is determined that he will make these decisions about how far and wide these operations will go," it quoted National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon as saying.

Top UK court to rule on Assange sex case extradition 29 May 2012 Britain's Supreme Court will rule on Wednesday on whether to allow WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's extradition to Sweden over alleged sex crimes, the latest chapter in the saga of the self-styled Internet whistleblower and bane of Washington.

Radioactive bluefin tuna crossed the Pacific to US 28 May 2012 Across the vast Pacific, the mighty bluefin tuna carried radioactive contamination that leaked from Japan's crippled nuclear plant to the shores of the United States 6,000 miles away -- the first time a huge migrating fish has been shown to carry radioactivity such a distance. "We were frankly kind of startled," said Nicholas Fisher, one of the researchers reporting the findings online Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The levels of radioactive cesium were 10 times higher than the amount measured in tuna off the California coast in previous years.

U.S. Plans to Arm Italy's Drones 29 May 2012 The Obama administration plans to arm Italy's fleet of Reaper drone aircraft, a move that could open the door for sales of advanced hunter-killer drone technology to other allies, according to lawmakers and others familiar with the matter. The sale would make Italy the first foreign country besides Britain to fly U.S. drones armed with missiles and laser-guided bombs. U.S. officials said Italy intends initially to deploy the armed drones in Afghanistan. [See CLG's Drone Hunting Permit.]

On May 25, deadly clashes broke out between Syrian forces and armed groups in Houla, located in the central province of Homs.

Pentagon has plans for military strike on Iran: Panetta 28 May 2012 US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says the Pentagon has readied plans to carry out a military strike on Iran, if diplomacy fails in the dispute over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program. "The fundamental premise is that neither the United States or the international community [aka Israel] is going to allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. We will do everything we can to prevent them from developing a weapon," Panetta said in an interview with ABC's This Week on Sunday. Iran says that according to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), all signatories have the right to use nuclear energy for peaceful applications and no country should have the right to possess nuclear weapons.

Bradley Manning defence team says US military is withholding key evidence

Bradley Manning defence team says US military is withholding key evidence 27 May 2012 Bradley Manning, the soldier accused of being behind the biggest leak of state secrets in US history, is being denied a fair trial because the army is withholding from him crucial information that might prove his innocence or reduce his sentence, his defence team is arguing. With Manning's court-martial approaching in September, his legal team has released details of what they claim is a shocking lack of diligence on the part of the military prosecutors in affording him his basic constitutional rights. The stakes are high, with Manning facing possible life imprisonment for a raft of charges that include "aiding the enemy". Manning's main civilian lawyer, David Coombs, has filed a motion with the military court in Fort Meade, Maryland, that sets out a catalogue of delays and inconsistencies in the army's handling of the case.

70 reports of police misconduct on Sunday at NATO protest, says National Lawyers Guild 23 May 2012 What is the legacy of the massive Sunday protest that brought out an estimated 15,000 people? One lasting effect, on both the city and the protesters, is how the Chicago Police Department behaved over the much-hyped weekend. According to Sarah Gelsomino with the National Lawyers Guild and the People's Law Office, the NLG received 70 separate claims of police misconduct from Sunday's events. "The majority of those incidences are baton strikes to the head and face," said Gelsomino. "We saw broken collar bones, broken arms, teeth knocked out, heads bashed in, lips busted and a numbers of concussions."
