At CIA, spying takes a back seat to manhunts

October 1, 2011 by legitgov

At CIA, spying takes a back seat to manhunts 01 Oct 2011 In its relentless pursuit of terror suspects, the CIA now oversees a growing military operation that threatens to sideline its traditional work in espionage and intelligence, former officials and experts say. The US raid in May that killed Osama bin Laden symbolised the "militarisation" of the leading spy agency since the 9/11 attacks, with Navy SEAL commandos operating under CIA authority. And yesterday US-born Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaqi was killed in an air raid in Yemen hailed by President Barack Obama as a "major blow" to terrorists.

AP sources: Christie soon to decide on primary run 30 Sep 2011 New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is reconsidering his decision to stay out of the race for the White House in 2012 and is expected to make a decision soon, according to several people close to the governor with knowledge of his thinking. Christie has long said he won't run in 2012. But those close to the first-term governor, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the issue, say he is rethinking his hard stance.

October 1, 2011 by legitgov

Secret U.S. memo sanctioned killing of American citizen Aulaqi --'What constitutes due process in this case is a due process in war.' 30 Sep 2011 The Justice Department wrote a secret memorandum authorizing the lethal targeting of Anwar al-Aulaqi, the American-born radical cleric who was killed by a U.S. drone strike Friday, according to administration officials. The document was produced following a review of the legal issues raised by striking a U.S. citizen and involved senior lawyers from across the administration. There was no dissent about the legality of killing Aulaqi, the officials said. "What constitutes due process in this case is a due process in war," said one of the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss closely held deliberations within the administration.

October 1, 2011 by legitgov

Hottest October day ever? Temperatures could hit 90f... just four weeks before the clocks go back for winter 01 Oct 2011 Hot on the heels of the warmest end to September on record, today is set to be Britain's most scorching October day ever. Just four weeks before the clocks go back for winter... Met Office forecasters said there was a strong chance temperatures in the south could today nudge above the previous high recorded in October– when the mercury hit 29.4c (85f) in March, Cambridgeshire, 16 years ago to the day. The past two days have been the hottest September 29 and 30 since records began.

Officials give U.S. citizen Anwar al-Aulaqi new title after CIA kills him

September 30, 2011 by legitgov

Officials give U.S. citizen Anwar al-Aulaqi new title after CIA kills him 30 Sep 2011 U.S. officials have given Anwar al-Aulaqi a newly elevated designation on the day of his death by drone strike, describing him as "chief of external operations" for al-Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen. The new title, cited by officials at the White House and the CIA, reflects Aulaq's evolution from Muslim cleric to alleged terrorist plotter, as well as a desire by American officials to persuade the public that the extraordinary killing of a U.S. citizen overseas was warranted. [The operative word here is *alleged,* as in *alleged* terrorist. The CIA is murdering U.S. citizens all over the world that CIAciopaths don't like, under Obusha's command. Note that George W. Bush *never* dared to go as far as Obama has gone in the war crimes and civil liberties departments - among others. --LRP]

Senior figures in the Palestine Liberation Organisation are reported to be planning to sever all contact with the former prime minister. They described Mr Blair as 'persona non grata' and said they were looking to isolate the former PM so his position became untenable on the international stage.

Caldwell said training in these areas was needed to enable Afghan army units to be better prepared to operate without U.S. support by 2014, when American combat troops are scheduled to leave.

September 30, 2011 by legitgov

State lawmakers push to allow guns on college campuses 29 Sep 2011 State lawmakers across the USA are pushing a growing number of bills this year that would legalize carrying guns on college campuses, according to groups tracking the trend. So far this year, at least 14 states have introduced 35 bills that would allow students and faculty to carry concealed weapons on state colleges and universities or loosen restrictions on gun bans on campuses, according to the National Conference of State Legislators. The emboldened effort to legalize guns on campuses comes on the heels of a ruling by the Oregon Court of Appeals on Wednesday that repealed a university gun ban.

Cantaloupe listeria outbreak deadliest in years 29 Sep 2011 Health officials nationwide have urged people to use caution when purchasing or eating cantaloupe due to one of the deadliest outbreaks of food contamination in recent history. 72 cases of listeria poisoning have been responsible for 13 deaths in 18 states, and and those numbers are expected to rise in the coming days. The FDA [was] able to pinpoint its source to Jenson Farms in Holly, Colorado. Jenson Farms has since recalled its entire 2011 crop. [Thanks, GOP/Obusha for the lack of food safety regulations!]

September 30, 2011 by legitgov

Mega barf alert! Ground beef recalled in 14 US states 28 Sep 2011 Tyson, the biggest meat processor in the United States, is recalling 131,300 pounds of ground beef sold in 14 states after an outbreak of e.coli in Ohio, US food inspectors said Wednesday. The ground beef -- enough for more than half a million hamburgers -- was sold with a best-before date of September 12, but the Department of Agriculture fears that much of it may have been frozen by consumers for later use. In a statement, it said its food safety and inspection service "strongly encourages consumers to check their freezers and immediately discard any product subject to this recall."

Obama: A disaster for civil liberties

September 30, 2011 by legitgov

Obama: A disaster for civil liberties --He may prove the most disastrous president in our history in terms of civil liberties. By Jonathan Turley 29 Sep 2011 President Obama not only retained the controversial Bush policies, he expanded on them... It's almost a classic case of the Stockholm syndrome, in which a hostage bonds with his captor despite the obvious threat to his existence. Even though many Democrats admit in private that they are shocked by Obama's position on civil liberties, they are incapable of opposing him. Some insist that they are simply motivated by realism: A Republican would be worse. However, realism alone cannot explain the utter absence of a push for an alternative Democratic candidate or organized opposition to Obama's policies on civil liberties in Congress during his term. It looks more like a cult of personality. Obama's policies have become secondary to his persona.

Three policemen were also wounded in the attack.

Violent incidents up 39 percent in Afghanistan 28 Sep 2011 The monthly average of armed clashes, roadside bombings and other violence in Afghanistan is running 39 percent ahead of last year's figure, U.N. reported Wednesday, with more complex suicide operations involving multiple bombers and gunmen.

Phone giants store callers' private data --The sheet is a guide for law enforcement, which can request data from the carriers through legal channels. 29 Sep 2011 A document obtained by the ACLU shows for the first time how the four largest cellphone companies in the U.S. treat data about their subscribers' calls, text messages, Web surfing and approximate locations. The one-page document from the Justice Department's cybercrime division shows, for instance, that Verizon Wireless keeps, for a year, information about which cell towers subscriber phones connect to. That data can be used to determine where the phone has been, down to the neighborhood. AT&T has kept the same data continuously since July 2008.

Not A Single Afghan Battalion Fights Without U.S. Help

September 29, 2011 by legitgov

Not A Single Afghan Battalion Fights Without U.S. Help 26 Sep 2011 Ten years of war. Two years of an accelerated effort to train Afghans to take over that fight, at an annual cost of $6 billion. And not a single Afghan army battalion can operate without assistance from U.S. or allied units. That was the assessment made by the officer responsible for training those Afghan soldiers, Lt. Gen. William Caldwell. Out of approximately 180 Afghan National Army battalions, only two operate "independently." "Those two 'independent' battalions still require U.S. support for their maintenance, logistics and medical systems," Caldwell admitted when Pentagon reporters pressed him on Monday morning.

Pentagon launches war court website

September 29, 2011 by legitgov

Pentagon launches war court website 28 Sep 2011 The Pentagon on Wednesday morning went live with a new, slicker interactive military tribunals website - with no new information - ahead of a decision from a senior Defense Department official on whether to go forward with the first death penalty war crimes prosecution of the Obama administration. Defense sources said retired Vice Adm. Bruce MacDonald was still deciding how to go forward in the case of Saudi Abd al Rahim al Nashiri, accused of masterminding the bombing of a Navy destroyer off the coast of Yemen two decades ago. Nashiri’s trial is bound to put a spotlight on both the CIA's treatment of its captives and also on Navy security in October 2000 off Aden, Yemen, where the warship was on a refuelng stop when two suicide US bombers drove a bomb-laden skiff into the USS Cole.

Federal worker says WikiLeaks link led to interrogation

September 29, 2011 by legitgov

Federal worker says WikiLeaks link led to interrogation 28 Sep 2011 In December 2010, the White House warned federal workers not to read classified cables released by WikiLeaks. In September, an author and State Department employee says he learned the government takes that directive seriously. Peter Van Buren, the author of a book critical of nation-building in Iraq titled "We Meant Well," wrote in a Tuesday piece on TomDispatch.com that after posting an item that linked to a diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks he was "interrogated for the first time in [his] 23-year State Department career by State's Bureau of Diplomatic Security... and told [he] was under investigation for allegedly disclosing classified information."
