Anonymous claims hacking of Ontario police chiefs' website 25 Feb 2012 A cyber attack on the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police's website has only bolstered the organization's support for the government's controversial online surveillance bill, a spokesman said Saturday. The association took down the site after it was hacked late Friday afternoon by people claiming to be linked to the group Anonymous, association spokesman Joe Couto said. The identity of those responsible for the attack has not been confirmed [LOL! That's because they don't know who they are.], but activists allied to the loose-knit Anonymous movement had threatened to target federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews and others over the Harper government's controversial online surveillance bill.

February 26, 2012 by legitgov

Army Could Replace Contractors With Soldiers to 'Re-Green' Service 24 Feb 2012 The Army needs to fix a system that gives soldiers more credit for operational positions than for "career-broadening" assignments, said Gen. Bob Cone, head of the Army's Training and Doctrine Command. He also said he wants today's soldiers to begin retaking the places now held by civilians and contractors in the "institutional Army" so they can directly pass on what they've learned in Iraq and Afghanistan. Cone wants to shape a postwar Army that will continue to change after more than a decade of fighting.

Report: U.S. warns Syria's neighbors of rogue WMDs after Assad ouster

February 26, 2012 by legitgov

Report: U.S. warns Syria's neighbors of rogue WMDs after Assad ouster 25 Feb 2012 The United States is coordinating with Syria's neighbors to safeguard Syrian President Bashar Assad's [alleged] stockpile of weapons of mass destruction in the event Assad is ousted by popular unrest, Foreign Policy reported on Friday. Assad's reported stockpile of chemical and biological weapons has been a cause for concern ever since the onset of his 11-month violent crackdown on [CIA-backed] opposition protests. Earlier this month, 'opposition sources' reported that Syria's military has begun stockpiling chemical weapons and equipping its soldiers with gas masks near the city of Homs. [Next, we'll be hearing that 'Assad is pulling babies from their incubators' because that propaganda worked so well the first time it was disseminated.]

February 26, 2012 by legitgov

Iran military official: Only burning White House can make up for burning Koran 25 Feb 2012 The Muslim world should not accept an apology issued by U.S. President Barack Obama over the burning of Korans in an American base in Afghanistan, a top Iranian military commander said on Saturday, adding that nothing short of "burning the White House can relieve the wound of us." Obama's Thursday apology in a letter to Afghan President Hamid Karzai sought to quell spiraling furor among Afghans, who have been protesting the act for five straight days, after Afghan workers found charred copies of the Muslim holy book on a military base near Kabul.

U.S. Agencies See No Move by Iran to Build a Bomb

February 26, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Agencies See No Move by Iran to Build a Bomb 25 Feb 2012 Even as the United Nations' nuclear watchdog said in a new report Friday that Iran had accelerated its uranium enrichment program, American intelligence analysts continue to believe that there is no hard evidence that Iran has decided to build a nuclear bomb. Recent assessments by American spy agencies are broadly consistent with a 2007 intelligence finding that concluded that Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program years earlier, according to current and former American officials. The officials said that assessment was largely reaffirmed in a 2010 National Intelligence Estimate, and that it remains the consensus view of America's 16 intelligence agencies.

And House members approved an amendment Friday by state Rep. Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, to have the task force also examine conditions under which Wyoming would need to implement its own military draft, raise a standing army, and acquire strike aircraft and an aircraft carrier.

NYPD Surveillance of Students Called 'Disgusting' 25 Feb 2012 At Columbia University and elsewhere, the fear among students that the New York Police Department might secretly be infiltrating their lives has spread beyond the Muslim student population to others who find the reported tactics "disgusting," as one teenager put it. The NYPD surveillance of Muslims on a dozen college campuses in the Northeast is a surprising and disappointing violation, students said Saturday in reaction to Associated Press reports that revealed the intelligence-gathering at Columbia and elsewhere.

Little alligator grins from ear-to-ear as he gets a ride down the river on his mother's head 24 Feb 2012 It certainly beats having to learn the art of swimming. This baby alligator did not feel like getting his feet wet when his mother wanted to go for a swim. So the crafty creature simply climbed on her head and hitched a ride instead. After a spell enjoying the warm Texan sunshine, the mother alligator decided to go for a quick dip to cool off from the heat. But her grinning offspring was having none of it - and climbed on top of her head knowing she would keep it above the surface so he could soak up some more sun.

US planning to boost sea and land defences in Gulf as Iran war fears grow --Military planners sought emergency funding from Congress for defence --Central Command told Congress that it wanted new systems in place by autumn 25 Feb 2012 The Pentagon has begun to take tangible steps to prepare for a possible conflict with Iran by making formal plans to boost US sea and land defences in the Persian Gulf, it has been claimed. Military planners have asked for emergency funding from Congress to address a perceived shortfall in defence capabilities that could undermine the ability of US forces to respond to an Iranian closure of the Strait of Hormuz, the Wall Street Journal quoted American officials as saying. Gen James Mattis, the head of the US Central Command, has privately informed Congress of his intentions to place mine detection and clearing equipment in and around the Strait and to boost surveillance capabilities in the Gulf. There are also plans to modify weapons systems on ships that are at present vulnerable to Iranian fast-attack boats, many of which carry anti-ship missiles.

Anonymous hacks Infragard again 25 Feb 2012 Hacktivist collective Anonymous has attacked the FBI affiliate Infragard for the second time, this time taking over and defacing the web site of its Dayton, Ohio chapter. The hackers took over the web site, changing it totally and replacing its content with a Youtube video of rapper Coolio performing Gangsta's Paradise and a message of defiance. The attack is part of the regular Friday releases from the group. "Greetings Pirates! Another #FuckFBIFriday is here and once again we emerge from the hacker underground to wreak havoc upon the 1%'s institutions of repression," says the message that introduces the hacking logs. "Today we targeted the Dayton Ohio chapter of InfraGard, the sinister alliance between law enforcement, corporations, and white hat wannabees." The message includes mention of the draconian trade agreement ACTA and suggests that while that exists the attacks will never stop.
