Greek Parliament Passes Austerity Plan as Riots Rage 13 Feb 2012 After violent protests left dozens of buildings aflame in Athens, the Greek Parliament voted early on Monday to approve a package of harsh austerity measures demanded by the country's foreign lenders in exchange for new loans to keep Greece from defaulting on its debt. The vote on the austerity measures was 199 in favor and 74 opposed, with 27 abstentions or blank ballots. The new austerity measures include, among others, a 22 percent cut in the benchmark minimum wage and 150,000 government layoffs by 2015 - a bitter prospect in a country ravaged by five years of recession and with unemployment at 21 percent and rising.

Tepco Says Fukushima Reactor Temperature Breaches Safety Limit --TEPCO: 'We think the thermometer may be faulty.' 13 Feb 2012 Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the temperature in one of the damaged reactors at its Fukushima nuclear station rose to levels above safety limits even as it injected increased amounts of cooling water. One of three thermometers indicated the temperature at the bottom of the No. 2 reactor pressure vessel rose to 89.2 degrees Celsius (192.56 Fahrenheit) as of 8:00 a.m. today, higher than the 80 degrees limit, Naohiro Omura, a spokesman for the utility, said by phone today.

Fukushima reactor heats up again 13 Feb 2012 The operator of the Fukushima nuclear plant has begun injecting more water into one of the reactors, after the core temperature rose above Japan's safety limit. A gauge inside Fukushima's reactor number two showed the temperature rising to 82 degrees Celsius over the weekend, its highest level since the reactor was put into a state of cold shutdown two months ago. Responding to the increase, operator TEPCO began injecting 15 tonnes of water an hour into the reactor in a bid to get the temperature down.

"We've developed very precise and lethal weapons that are very effective, and we're prepared," Fox said. "We're just ready for any contingency."

Buildings set ablaze as Greek MPs debate austerity plan 12 Feb 2012 Protests have spread in central Athens, amid anger over austerity measures being debated by parliament. Protesters threw stones and petrol bombs, and several buildings were set on fire; police fired tear gas. A number of people were injured. The BBC's Mark Lowen in Athens says the violent protests, which have been common in recent months, are surprisingly large. Several historic buildings, including cafes and cinemas, were in flames. Syntagma Square - in the heart of Athens - is cloaked in a hail of tear gas, our correspondent adds.

Anonymous invites CIA, others to its weekend party

February 12, 2012 by legitgov

Anonymous invites CIA, others to its weekend party 11 Feb 2012 Anonymous is having a busy weekend. The loose-knit hacking collective, which last week scored a coup against the FBI, claimed yesterday to have taken down the CIA's Web site, in what appeared to be a distributed denial of service attack (one of the group's specialties, such relatively unsophisticated attacks paralyze Web servers with waves of data requests). The group also posted information it said was pilfered from police and government servers in Alabama, and, as blog RT reported, took down the Mexican Senate and Interior Ministry Web sites... Anonymous embarrassed the FBI a week ago Friday by posting on YouTube a recording of a conference call between the bureau and U.K. law enforcement over Anonymous and other online activist groups.

Romney edges Paul in Maine caucuses

February 11, 2012 by legitgov

After Three Losses, Romney Edges Past Paul in Maine --Mr. Romney scraped by Mr. Paul by just 194 votes. 12 Feb 2012 Mitt Romney averted embarrassment on Saturday when he was declared the winner of a presidential straw poll in Maine's nonbinding caucuses. He won 39 percent of the vote, barely edging out Representative Ron Paul of Texas, the only other Republican candidate to campaign actively in the state. Mr. Paul drew 36 percent. Rick Santorum won 18 percent, and Newt Gingrich 6 percent. [Note: Faux News 'lost' Ron Paul's audio, when Paul was speaking in Portland, ME. It seems that Faux News 'loses' Paul's audio *every time.* There's nary a technical problem, however, when Faux interviews its troll Sarah Palin - in Alaska. Your deomcracy, cancelled: A Ron Paul stronghold of over 5,000 people did NOT get to participate as their caucus was cancelled due to quote, unquote weather. So Paul would have *definitely* won the Maine caucuses -- if the election wasn't stolen (again) by the GOP establishment. --LRP]

Syrian general gunned down in Damascus 11 Feb 2012 A Syrian general was gunned down in the heart of the capital on Saturday as fresh violence flared in several cities. An "armed terrorist group" assassinated Brig. Gen. Issa al-Kholi, a military physician who was the director of Hamish Hospital, in front of his Damascus house Saturday morning, the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency said. Three gunmen shot him to death, the media outlet said. The killing occurred "In the framework of targeting the Syrian intellectuals and the medical and technical cadres," SANA reported. "A number of efficient, skilled and specialized national cadres were assassinated by armed terrorist groups," said SANA, which cited the killings of a professor, a nuclear specialist, a teacher and a couple of engineers. [Let's see... Who kills professors, scientists, engineers and teachers?]

February 11, 2012 by legitgov

UK accused of deploying nuclear weapons near the Falklands 11 Feb 2012 In an increasingly tense war of words, Argentinian Foreign Minister Hector Timerman claims the UK is deploying nuclear weapons near the Falkland Islands. Britain and Argentina went to war over the disputed British-ruled Falkland Islands in 1982, and London rejects Argentine demands for sovereignty negotiations... Mr Timerman urged the UN to intervene in the long-running dispute over the islands. He said that Buenos Aires had intelligence that the British nuclear submarine, Vanguard, had been deployed in the area. Along with a purported picture of the Vanguard submarine, Timerman also displayed pictures of a ship and plane that he claimed were the British naval destroyer, Dauntless, and the British aircraft, Typhoon, respectively. He said that all three had been deployed near the Falkland Islands.

Israel teams with terror group to kill Iran's nuclear scientists, U.S. officials tell NBC News 09 Feb 2012 Deadly attacks on Iranian nuclear scientists are being carried out by an Iranian dissident group that is financed, trained and armed by Israel's secret service, U.S. officials tell NBC News, confirming charges leveled by Iran's leaders. The group, the People's Mujahedin of Iran, has long been designated as a terrorist group by the United States, accused of killing American servicemen and contractors in the 1970s and supporting the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran... The attacks, which have killed five Iranian nuclear scientists since 2007 and may have destroyed a missile research and development site, have been carried out in dramatic fashion, with motorcycle-borne assailants often attaching small magnetic bombs to the exterior of the victims' cars.

'Tango Down': Anonymous claims attacks on CIA, Alabama state sites 10 Feb 2012 7:10 p.m. ET: cia.gov remains inaccessible four hours after it was first reported to be down, followed shortly by a claim that the hacker group Anonymous was responsible. As security experts have noted, that's an unusually long time if the attack really is a straightforward DDoS assault. 6 p.m. ET: cia.gov remains inaccessible, about three hours after it was first reported to be down. Meanwhile, the Alabama Department of Homeland Security says any "comment would be premature at this time" because it was an "ongoing investigation," The Birmingham News reports.

Anonymous Takes Down CIA Web Site

February 11, 2012 by legitgov

Anonymous Takes Down CIA Web Site 10 Feb 2012 Anonymous has ended a rather busy week with a hack of the CIA website, which is currently offline. "CIA TANGO DOWN: https://www.cia.gov/ #Anonymous," the @YourAnonNews feed tweeted around 3:30pm Eastern. The CIA.gov website has been unresponsive for about an hour. Anonymous did not release details about the attack, but the group usually uses distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks to take down its targets. [I guess that would explain why ucia.gov wasn't in the CLG website logs today.]

CIA fears Iran has data downed drone failed to dump

February 11, 2012 by legitgov

CIA fears Iran has data downed drone failed to dump 10 Feb 2012 A comprehensive CIA investigation reportedly fails to find the cause of the US drone going down in Iran last year, raising fears that the aircraft failed to dump sensitive data. FOX News quoted a former intelligence official as saying that CIA's comprehensive, 10-week review was unable to replicate the "malfunction" that brought down the RQ-170 Sentinel drone in Iran. The report supports Iran's claims that the reconnaissance was cyberjacked by the army's electronic warfare unit and eased to a safe landing while deep in Iranian territory on December 4.

The US Army said in a statement on Thursday that the military judge hearing the case scheduled an arraignment for February 23 at Fort Meade in Maryland.

Israel's Mossad trained assassins of Iran nuclear scientists, report says 09 Feb 2012 Mossad officials are training Iranian dissident activists [?] to assassinate Iranian nuclear scientists, a NBC News report citing U.S. officials said on Thursday. The report noted, however, that Washington was not directly involvement in the alleged attacks. The report by NBC News followed Iranian accusations that Israel and the U.S. had been orchestrating attacks against Iranian scientists and military officials associated with Iran's nuclear program. [Hmm. What's another word for 'dissident activists' who plant bombs and assassinate people? That would be *terrorists.* Apparently, the definition morphs - depending on who hires them. --LRP]

'Anonymous' hacker group threatens 'reign of terror' against Israel

February 10, 2012 by legitgov

'Anonymous' hacker group threatens 'reign of terror' against Israel 10 Feb 2012 The hacker group "Anonymous" released a video Friday threatening to begin a 'reign of terror' against Israel, in the latest round of cyber warfare between pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli hackers. The video, which was posted on YouTube in the early hours of the morning, blamed Israel for committing 'crimes against humanity,' and criticizing it for its treatment of Palestinians. The video also makes reference to the possibility of an Israeli strike on Iran, claiming that Israel has "taken steps to ensure a nuclear holocaust," and that it will not be allowed "to attack a sovereign country based upon a campaign of lies." Moreover, the video threatens to start a crusade against Israel that will take the form of three steps, only revealing that the first of these steps will attempt to systematically remove Israel from the internet.

Hacking off the Feds: Anonymous intercepts FBI conference call about...themselves 03 Feb 2012 In an audio recording made and posted online by the internet hacktivists Anonymous, a number of Federal agents both in the US and the UK can be heard discussing ways to apprehend members of the group. In an ironic post, the hacktivists made the 20-minute long conversation available online, taunting the Federal Bureau of Investigations with the leak – and the fact that while the agents may only have half-formed plans to arrest Anonymous members, the group itself is making sure to stay one step ahead.
