May 6, 2012 by legitgov

Hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners hospitalized 05 May 2012 Ten Palestinian prisoners participating in a mass hunger strike in Israeli jails were placed under medical supervision as their conditions worsened, officials said Saturday. The ten men are among 1,500 to 2,500 Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike to demand better conditions and an end to detention without trial. Although Israeli officials and Palestinians give different numbers of hunger strikers, it is still one of the largest prison protests in years.

According to Afghan officials, the victims were working in the fields when the airstrike hit early Saturday morning. The raid was carried out despite the security pact signed by Kabul and Washington on Tuesday. [Wow, USociopaths lasted a whole *96 hours* before violating a treaty! That's got to be some kind of record!]

Senator likely to be rebuffed in News Corp inquiry 04 May 2012 The British judicial inquiry investigating questionable reporting practices by Rupert Murdoch's media properties is unlikely to cooperate with a prominent senator's request for evidence of misconduct in the United States, three people familiar with the inquiry said. The sources said that the judicial inquiry, created by British Prime Minister David Cameron and chaired by Sir Brian Leveson, a senior English judge, is not authorized to provide legal assistance or evidence to other bodies or organizations, including foreign government agencies or components. Jay Rockefeller, chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, on Wednesday sent a letter to Leveson asking if his inquiry has uncovered any misconduct on the part of Murdoch's News Corp that occurred in the United States or violated American laws.

ACLU makes request for access to terror statements --US interrogators have been accused of using torture techniques at Guantanamo Bay on alleged terror suspects, many of whom are still being held without charge. 05 May 2012 The American Civil Liberties Union has requested access to statements made by alleged conspirators of the September 11th attacks. The ACLU has made an official request for documents on five alleged plotters who are being tried by a military court. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four alleged co-conspirators are facing a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay prison. Mohammed, who was captured in Pakistan in 2003, is believed to have made statements about treatment he received at the facility.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed: former military prosecutor denounces trial --Morris Davis says allowing evidence from torture means the world will never see Guantanamo Bay trials as fair 04 May 2012 The former chief US prosecutor at Guantanamo Bay has denounced the military trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the [Bush regime's] 9/11 attacks due to appear in court at Guantanamo on Saturday, as intended primarily to prevent the defendants from presenting evidence of torture. Morris Davis, a former colonel who was chief prosecutor when Mohammed was brought to Guantanamo in 2006, said the military commissions will be badly discredited by the use of testimony obtained from waterboarding and other "enhanced interrogation" techniques used on the accused men.

Transregional forces should leave Iran alone: Cmdr. 06 May 2012 A senior Iranian military commander warns transregional forces to stay away from Iran as they have seen the result of their past meddling. The remarks came following an ABC report on April 28, 2012 about the deployment of US F-22 Raptor stealth fighters at Al Dafra Airbase in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). "Transregional powers should leave Iran alone because they have seen the outcome of their meddlesome actions in the past," Commander of Iran's Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili said on Sunday.

Man in Afghan uniform kills NATO soldier 06 May 2012 A soldier with NATO's US-led coalition in Afghanistan was killed by a man in Afghan army uniform on Sunday, a spokesman for the mission said, in the latest so-called "green-on-blue" attack. The death takes the number of foreign troops killed by Afghans they were working with to at least 19 this year, in at least 13 separate attacks. "An individual wearing an Afghan National Army uniform turned his weapon against coalition service members in southern Afghanistan today, killing one service member," NATO'S International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said.

County denies Homeland Security building permit

May 6, 2012 by legitgov

County denies Homeland Security building permit [LOL!] 04 May 2012 Monroe County officials last week denied a Tampa-based builder's request to construct a U.S. Department of Homeland Security building in Tavernier. The project was controversial from the time it became known last year. It was met with large community opposition from neighbors who did not want a federal facility with a possible prisoner holding cell to be built in the historic Upper Keys district. If approved, the 10,316-square-foot building would have housed agents with Homeland Security's Investigative Division and U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Marine Unit.

Alerts say major cyber attack aimed at gas pipeline industry

May 6, 2012 by legitgov

Heads up! USociopaths are attacking themselves again so they can blame Anonymous and/or Iran and pass psycho CISPA: Alerts say major cyber attack aimed at gas pipeline industry --Intrusions aimed at control systems, agency of Homeland Security warns 06 May 2012 A major cyber attack is currently under way aimed squarely at computer networks belonging to US natural gas pipeline companies, according to alerts issued to the industry by the US Department of Homeland Security. At least three confidential "amber" alerts – the second most sensitive next to "red" – were issued by DHS beginning March 29, all warning of a "gas pipeline sector cyber intrusion campaign" against multiple pipeline companies. But the wave of cyber attacks, which apparently began four months ago – and may also affect Canadian natural gas pipeline companies [Yeah, right!] – is continuing. That fact was reaffirmed late Friday in a public, albeit less detailed, "incident response" report from the Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT), an arm of DHS based in Idaho Falls.

N.R.C. Skimps on Financial Oversight, Audit Says

N.R.C. Skimps on Financial Oversight, Audit Says 06 Apr 2012 The government does a poor job of estimating what it will cost to tear down a nuclear reactor, Congressional auditors say, and it may not be overseeing plant owners well enough to assure that they set aside enough money to do the job. For a study it plans to issue on Monday, the Government Accountability Office scrutinized 12 of the nation's 104 power reactors and found that for 5 of them, the decommissioning cost calculated by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission was 76 percent or less of what the reactor's owner thought would be needed.

Socialist François Hollande wins French presidency 06 May 2012 Socialist François Hollande defeated conservative incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy on Sunday to become France's next president, heralding a change in how Europe tackles its debt crisis and how France flexes its military and diplomatic muscle around the world. Sarkozy conceded defeat minutes after the polls closed, saying he had called Hollande to wish him "good luck" as the country's new leader. Exuberant crowds filled the Place de la Bastille, the iconic plaza of the French Revolution, to celebrate Hollande's victory. He will be France's first leftist chief of state since François Mitterrand was president from 1981 to 1995.

Washington Post Reports 2010 Pentagon-CIA Drone Target Criteria as 'New'

May 6, 2012 by legitgov

Washington Post Reports 2010 Pentagon-CIA Drone Target Criteria as 'New' By Lori Price, http://www.legitgov.org/ 06 May 2012 An April 2012 article published in The Washington Post reported as 'new' an expansion of Pentagon-CIA killer drone target criteria. In fact, the change in policy was reported in May 2010 in the Los Angeles Times. Although the country discussed in the 2012 article was Yemen and the 2010 Los Angeles Times story referred to Pakistan, the Pentagon-CIA policy of killing broad numbers of unidentified targets is not a 2012 policy but one established in 2008 by George W. Bush and amplified in 2010 by President Barack Obama.

White House approves broader Yemen drone campaign

May 6, 2012 by legitgov

White House approves broader Yemen drone campaign 25 Apr 2012 The United States has begun launching drone strikes against suspected al-Qaeda operatives in Yemen under new authority approved by President Obama that allows the CIA and the military to fire even when the identity of those who could be killed is not known, U.S. officials said. U.S. officials said that Obama approved the use of "signature" strikes this month in 2010 and that the killing of an al-Qaeda operative near the border of Yemen's Marib province this week was among the first attacks carried out under the new authority. The expanded authority will allow the CIA and JSOC to fire on targets based solely on their intelligence "signatures" -- patterns of behavior that are detected through signals intercepts, human sources and aerial surveillance, and that indicate the presence of an important operative or a plot against U.S. interests. Until now 2010, the administration had allowed strikes only against known terrorist leaders who appear on secret CIA and JSOC target lists and whose location can be confirmed.

CIA drones have broader list of targets

May 6, 2012 by legitgov

CIA drones have broader list of targets --The agency since 2008 has been secretly allowed to kill unnamed suspects in Pakistan. 05 May 2010 The CIA received secret permission to attack a wider range of targets, including suspected militants whose names are not known, as part of a dramatic expansion of its campaign of drone strikes in Pakistan's border region, according to current and former counter-terrorism officials. The expanded authority, approved two years ago by the Bush regime and continued by President Obama, permits the agency to rely on what officials describe as "pattern of life" analysis, using evidence collected by surveillance cameras on the unmanned aircraft and from other sources about individuals and locations. The information then is used to target suspected militants, even when their full identities are not known, the officials said. Previously, the CIA was restricted in most cases to killing only individuals whose names were on an approved list.

U.S. special forces commander seeks to expand operations

U.S. special forces commander seeks to expand operations 04 May 2012 A top U.S. commander is seeking authority to expand clandestine operations against militants and insurgencies around the globe, a sign of shifting Pentagon tactics and priorities. Adm. William H. McRaven, a Navy SEAL and commander of the raid that killed 'Osama bin Laden,' has developed plans that would provide far-reaching new powers to make special operations units "the force of choice" against "emerging threats" over the next decade, internal Defense Department documents show. America's secret military forces have grown dramatically over the last decade as the Pentagon and the U.S. intelligence community have increasingly merged missions, including drone strikes and counter-terrorism operations.

9/11 defendants charged in Guantanamo 'court' 06 May 2012 The five men accused of plotting the deadly September 11, 2001, attacks [which were actually carried out by the US government] in the United States were formally charged on Saturday with crimes that include murder and terrorism. Confessed [after being waterboarded 183 times] mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed  and the four other accused opted to plead neither innocent nor guilty, but rather to defer their plea to a later date. The special military tribunal charged Mohammed, 47, and the four others with "conspiracy, attacking civilians, murder and violation of the law of war, destruction, hijacking, terrorism" for their role in the strikes in which Al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] militants flew hijacked airliners into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania.

Minnesota police giving Occupy protesters drugs for 'impairment study' - report --One young man who identified himself as Panda said he got 'high as fuck' in front of a couple police officers. 03 May 2012 A video report put together by local independent media activists and members of Communities United Against Police Brutality finds that police officers and county deputies have been giving drugs to young people hanging out near Peavey Plaza as part of an 'impairment study.' The report indicates that police patrol downtown Minneapolis looking for impaired people, then drive them to a testing facility in Richfield for examination of their capabilities while intoxicated. But in some cases where no previously impaired people could be found, police seduced prospective participants with drugs.

BP wins delay of Gulf spill trial until 2013 --US, Gulf Coast states sought summer 2012 trial 03 May 2012 A trial to assign blame and damages that could total tens of billions of dollars for the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill has been put off until January, in a setback for the U.S. government, which wanted to try its case this summer. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier in New Orleans on Thursday scheduled a trial for Jan. 14, 2013, more than 10 months after it had originally been scheduled. The decision means the federal government and Gulf Coast states, which also wanted a summer trial, may have to wait longer to recover money from BP Plc and its drilling partners.

Russia's military threatens preemptive strike if NATO goes ahead with missile plan 03 May 2012 Russia's top military officer has threatened to carry out a pre-emptive strike on U.S.-led NATO missile defense facilities in Eastern Europe if Washington goes ahead with its controversial plan to build a missile shield. President Dmitry Medvedev said last year that Russia will retaliate militarily if it does not reach an agreement with the United States and NATO on the missile defense system. Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov went even further Thursday. "A decision to use destructive force pre-emptively will be taken if the situation worsens," he said at an international conference attended by senior U.S. and NATO officials.

Security Plan Shuts Down Roads, South Loop For NATO Summit Weekend 04 May 2012 A large security zone around McCormick Place will be off limits to Chicagoans, and the Museum Campus, Lake Shore Drive and several major expressways and streets will be shut down before or during the NATO Summit, under a plan revealed on Friday. All of this comes on top of a large restricted air space zone above the city. Anybody violating that airspace could be shot down. Metra and South Shore commuters will be able to ride the trains that run under McCormick Place. They may be subject to TSA-style pat downs and screenings and they can expect delays for security sweeps.

Summit Could Mean Airport-Style Security on Metra Electric, South Shore Trains --Commuters would face patdowns, X-ray screenings, and long security lines at their stations before boarding trains. 03 May 2012 Some stations on the Metra Electric Line and South Shore Line could be shut down during the upcoming NATO summit, and passengers at other stations could face airport-style security screenings, due to the Secret Service security plan that could be released as soon as Friday afternoon. The Secret Service has been battling with Metra and the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District over the security measures that will be needed on the Electric and South Shore lines, which both run directly under McCormick Place. The commuter rail agencies are still in talks with the Secret Service over major security measures for passengers, including airport-style screening of all riders during the summit.

Shoot-to-Kill Order to Enforce No-Fly Zone During NATO Summit

May 5, 2012 by legitgov

Shoot-to-Kill Order to Enforce No-Fly Zone During NATO Summit 03 May 2012 Plans to keep residents and dignitaries 'safe' during the NATO Summit include a no-fly zone, with a shoot-to-kill warning for those who break the ban. As CBS 2 reports, the US government is informing small plane pilots that if they enter the no-fly zone during the summit, they might be shot down. This is no joke. It will be enforced for May 19 to May 21. The flight advisory was issued by the Federal Aviation Administration. The advisory bans non-commercial aircraft from flying within 10 nautical miles of downtown Chicago at altitudes below 18,000 feet.

Judge: Texas can't cut funds to Planned Parenthood 04 May 2012 A federal appeals court ruled Friday that Texas cannot ban Planned Parenthood from receiving state funds, at least until a lower court has a chance to hear formal arguments. A three-judge panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed Friday with a lower court that there's sufficient evidence the state's law preventing Planned Parenthood from participating in the Women's Health Program is unconstitutional. The program provides basic health care and contraception to 130,000 poor women.

FBI: We need wiretap-ready Web sites -- now [Great! It'll be much easier for Anonymous to get in there and *take the ____ers down!*] 04 May 2012 The FBI is asking Internet companies not to oppose a controversial proposal that would require firms, including Microsoft, Facebook, Yahoo, and Google, to build in backdoors for government surveillance. In meetings with industry representatives, the White House, and U.S. senators, senior FBI officials argue the dramatic shift in communication from the telephone system to the Internet has made it far more difficult for agents to wiretap Americans suspected of illegal activities, CNET has learned. The FBI general counsel's office has drafted a proposed law that the bureau claims is the best solution: requiring that social-networking Web sites and providers of VoIP, instant messaging, and Web e-mail alter their code to ensure their products are wiretap-friendly. [How's that hopey and changey workin' for 'ya?]

Justice Department sought 1,745 secret warrants in 2011 03 May 2012 The Justice Department made 1,745 requests to a secret court for authority to wiretap or search for evidence in terrorism and espionage investigations last year. That's according to an April 30 letter from the department to the Senate that was first reported Thursday by the Federation of American Scientists. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which meets in secret to hear classified evidence from government attorneys, did not reject any of the requests, though judges did require modifications to 30 requests. It was an increase over 2010, when the department made 1,579 requests.
