Pakistan Gives U.S. a List of Demands, Including an End to C.I.A. Drone Strikes

April 14, 2012 by legitgov

Pakistan Gives U.S. a List of Demands, Including an End to C.I.A. Drone Strikes 13 Apr 2012 In Islamabad, the government and opposition joined on Thursday to present the United States with a list of stringent demands, including an immediate end to C.I.A. drone strikes, that were cast in uncompromising words but could pave the way for a reopening of NATO supply lines through the country. After two and a half weeks of contentious negotiations, the main parties agreed on a four-page parliamentary resolution that, in addition to the drone demand, called on the Obama administration to apologize for American airstrikes in November that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers. It declared that "no overt or covert operations inside Pakistan shall be permitted" -- a broad reference that could be interpreted to include all C.I.A. operations.

Fukushima Daiichi Site: Cesium-137 is 85 times greater than at Chernobyl Accident

April 14, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima Daiichi Site: Cesium-137 is 85 times greater than at Chernobyl Accident By Akio Matsumura 05 Apr 2012 Japan's former Ambassador to Switzerland, Mr. Mitsuhei Murata, informed us that the total numbers of the spent fuel rods at the Fukushima Daiichi site excluding the rods in the pressure vessel is 11,421. I asked top spent-fuel pools expert Mr. Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy, for an explanation of the potential impact of the 11,421 rods... "Based on U.S. Energy Department data, assuming a total of 11,138 spent fuel assemblies are being stored at the Dai-Ichi site, nearly all, which is in pools. They contain roughly 336 million curies (~1.2 E+19 Bq) of long-lived radioactivity. About 134 million curies is Cesium-137 -- roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP). The total spent reactor fuel inventory at the Fukushima Daiichi site contains nearly half of the total amount of Cs-137 estimated by the NCRP to have been released by all atmospheric nuclear weapons testing, Chernobyl, and world-wide reprocessing plants (~270 million curies or ~9.9 E+18 Becquerel). It is important for the public to understand that reactors that have been operating for decades, such as those at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site have generated some of the largest concentrations of radioactivity on the planet."

More problems found at San Onofre nuclear power plant

April 13, 2012 by legitgov

More problems found at San Onofre nuclear power plant 12 Apr 2012 Southern California Edison officials said Wednesday that they are now seeing the same unusual type of wear on steam generator tubes at both of the San Onofre nuclear plant's reactor units. In recent months, officials have found unexpected wear on more than 300 tubes that were installed as part of the $671-million replacement of the plant's four steam generators. The new steam generators were installed within the last two years, which made that rate of wear unexpected. What was even more unusual was the type of wear at Unit 3, which has now also been discovered at Unit 2.

US ruling over rendition evidence offers impunity to British spies, warns UN

April 13, 2012 by legitgov

US ruling over rendition evidence offers impunity to British spies, warns UN --The MPs are investigating the extent of British complicity in rendition – the practice of arresting terrorist suspects and flying them to other countries to be tortured. 13 Apr 2012 An American court's decision to allow its intelligence agencies to withhold evidence about Britain's involvement in "extraordinary rendition" promotes impunity for any UK officials complicit in such operations, a senior United Nations representative said last night. The UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and counter-terrorism, Ben Emmerson, said that the controversial ruling had been reached "on dubious legal grounds" and warned it would hamper efforts to establish the truth of what British officials and ministers knew about the controversial practice. The Independent reported this week that a judge in Washington DC had allowed the agencies, including the CIA, the FBI and the National Security Agency, not to supply crucial documents to British parliamentarians.

Romney's wooing of female vote hits early snag --Wage-law query shows challenge for dog-torturing sociopath 11 Apr 2012 With the general election campaign unofficially under way, Mitt Romney's effort to win back female voters got off to a rocky start Wednesday when his campaign was stumped temporarily over whether he supports the 3-year-old Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Democrats jumped on the incident... saying it calls into question the former Massachusetts governor's own commitment to a fair shake for the fairer sex. The Romney staffers paused when asked what Mr. Romney's position was on the law, then promised to get back to reporters with an answer. Within an hour, they had it: Mr. Romney would not repeal the law, which was the first legislation Mr. Obama signed in 2009. [Right, they needed time to shake the Etch A Sketch. --LRP]

Anonymous takes out Boeing website

Anonymous takes out Boeing website 11 Apr 2012 Anonymous is taking responsibility for launching a coordinated cyberattack on Boeing's website, a high-profile takedown that's part of the hacking collective's campaign against what it believes is a stifling piece of federal legislation. Anonymous announced "Tango Down boeing.com by #Anonymous for #OpDefense" on its YourAnonNews Twitter feed at about 3:45 p.m. EDT Tuesday. Boeing's website was down for most of the following two hours, returning at about 5:40 p.m. ET, but had some trouble again Wednesday morning. Operation Defense, or #OpDefense as mentioned on Twitter, stems from Anonymous's opposition to the proposed Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), a bill that would enable private companies and the government to more easily share cybersecurity information.
