Fraud in Corps of Engineers contracting charged 05 Oct 2011 Strip away the shell companies and complex wire transfers, and what federal prosecutors on Tuesday called "one of the most brazen corruption schemes in the history of federal contracting" was really quite simple... Until they were arrested Tuesday, authorities said, they had their sights on another contract, one worth $780 million. Four men -- two program managers at the corps, a son of one of them and the director of contracts at a Dulles technology firm [EyakTek] -- were indicted on corruption-related charges that were made public Tuesday. The arrests revealed what authorities described as one of the most audacious bribery scams they have investigated.

Electrocution case against KBR can be tried in U.S. court, judge rules

October 4, 2011 by legitgov

Electrocution case against KBR can be tried in U.S. court, judge rules 04 Oct 2011  A civil lawsuit brought against KBR by the parents of a U.S. soldier electrocuted in Iraq can go forward in U.S. court, after a federal judge ruled the case should not be governed by Iraqi laws. Attorneys for the defense contractor had argued that Iraqi laws should apply to the case because Army Staff Sgt. Ryan Maseth's death in 2008 occurred on a military base in Iraq. But, for the second time in four months, Judge Nora Barry Fischer sided with Maseth's family, saying U.S. law is applicable because the base was under American control, according to an Associated Press report.

Sarah Palin-affiliated law firm made early-state deadline inquiries By Maggie Haberman & Kenneth P. Vogel 04 Oct 2011 Ken Vogel and I both have sources telling us that calls were made on behalf of a mystery candidate to various early states to determine presidential filing deadlines. The calls were made by representatives of the law firm Baker Hostetler - a firm that employs lawyer Mark Braden, who represents Sarah PAC, her political action committee. As Ken notes, while he nor representatives of Palin's campaign would comment on the calls, Palin is the only GOP politician eying the presidential race who is represented by the firm.

At Rick Perry's Texas hunting spot, camp's old racially charged name lingered

October 4, 2011 by legitgov

At Rick Perry's Texas hunting spot, camp's old racially charged name lingered 01 Oct 2011 In the early years of his political career, Rick Perry (R) began hosting fellow lawmakers, friends and supporters at his family’s secluded West Texas hunting camp, a place known by the name painted in block letters across a large, flat rock standing upright at its gated entrance. "N*ggerhead," it read... Perry's version of events differs in many respects from the recollections of seven people, interviewed by The Washington Post, who spoke in detail of their memories of seeing the rock with the name at various points during the years that Perry was associated with the property through his father, partners or his signature on a lease.

Gen.: U.S. to remain in Afghanistan a 'long time' --62 percent: U.S. forces should be decreased 03 Oct 2011 Ten years ago this week, U.S. forces went to war in Afghanistan to root out the terrorists who attacked America on 9/11 seize gas pipelines for UNOCAL, and to topple the Taliban government that gave them safe haven. That's been done [?!?], but Taliban insurgents - using Pakistan as a base [thanks to *billions* the US gives Pakistan yearly, apparently for that purpose] - fight on, and the top U.S. general in Afghanistan says that the U.S. troops will remain there for a "long time," likely far beyond a planned 2014 handover of security responsiblity.

Paul called the killing a movement toward "tyranny."

Union President John Samuelsen called ordering bus drivers to drive prisoners "a blatant act of political retaliation."

Internet firms co-opted for surveillance: experts 30 Sep 2011 Internet companies such as Google, Twitter and Facebook are increasingly co-opted for surveillance work as the information they gather proves irresistible to law enforcement agencies, Web experts said this week. Suggestions that BlackBerry maker RIM might give user data to British police after its messenger service was used to coordinate riots this summer caused outrage -- as has the spying on social media users by more other oppressive governments.

N.Y.P.D.'s 'White Shirts' Take On Enforcer Role

N.Y.P.D.'s 'White Shirts' Take On Enforcer Role 03 Oct 2011 The New York Police Department puts an endless list of tasks on the shoulders of its so-called white shirts — the commanders atop an army of lesser-ranking officers in dark blue. But the portfolio of the white shirt has now unexpectedly grown to include the role of enforcer. As the Occupy Wall Street protests, which began on Sept. 17, lurch into their third week, it is often the white Black shirts who lay hands on protesters or initiate arrests. Video recordings of clashes have shown white shirts -- lieutenants, captains or inspectors -- leading underlings into the fray.

Plutonium 40km from Fukushima plant

October 3, 2011 by legitgov

Plutonium 40km from Fukushima plant 02 Oct 2011 Small amounts of plutonium believed to have escaped from Japan’s tsunami-crippled nuclear plant have been detected in soil more than 40km away, say government researchers, a finding that will fuel already widespread fears about radiation risk. The plutonium was found at six sites - including one in Iitate around 40km from the plant - all of which are subject to evacuation orders. However, plutonium's long half-life and the potential for even small amounts to pose a health hazard if ingested is likely to make it a focus of popular concern.

Nuclear relic

Nuclear relic 02 Oct 2011 At Hanford from 1943 until 1989, World War II through the Cold War, the United States produced the plutonium that gives the nuclear and thermonuclear arsenal its punch... Left behind was a chemically toxic, radioactive soup that drained into underground carbon-steel storage tanks and was, at least in the hurried days of world war, forgotten. Those tanks, 177 in all, held 56 million gallons of waste. Most, 149, are single-shelled; 28 are double-shelled. Sixty-seven of the single-shelled tanks have leaked, contaminating the soil and possibly the groundwater underneath.
