FBI quietly forms secretive Net-surveillance unit

May 23, 2012 by legitgov

FBI quietly forms secretive Net-surveillance unit --CNET has learned that the FBI has formed a Domestic Communications Assistance Center, which is tasked with developing new electronic surveillance technologies, including intercepting Internet, wireless, and VoIP communications. 22 May 2012 The FBI has recently formed a secretive surveillance unit with an ambitious goal: to invent technology that will let police more readily eavesdrop on Internet and wireless communications. The establishment of the Quantico, Va.-based unit, which is also staffed by agents from the U.S. Marshals Service and the Drug Enforcement Agency, is a response to technological developments that FBI officials believe outpace law enforcement's ability to listen in on private communications.

Anonymous attacks Justice Dept., nabbing 1.7GB of data --In a new hack into the U.S. Department of Justice's Web site, Anonymous claims to have grabbed "lots of shiny things such as internal emails, and the entire database dump." 22 May 2012 In a hack it dubbed "Monday Mail Mayhem," Anonymous claims to have collected and released 1.7GB of data from the U.S. Department of Justice yesterday.

NATO terrorism defendants kept in 'observation' cells

NATO terrorism defendants kept in 'observation' cells --One of their lawyers says the jail conditions amount to 'sensory deprivation' intended to hamper the defense. 22 May 2012 A spokesman for Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart says three anti-NATO protesters accused of terrorism conspiracy have been held around-the-clock since Saturday in white-walled observation cells, where they are isolated from each other and the rest of the inmate population and kept from writing materials, books and all other media. Spokesman Frank Bilecki said Gary Hickerson, acting executive director of the sheriff's Department of Corrections, ordered the observation because the defendants are young and because their charges are serious. Bilecki said the decision had nothing to do with behavior since arrest and that the State's Attorney's office had no input into the confinement conditions.

UK steps closer to renewing nuclear firepower 22 May 2012 Britain moved a step closer to renewing its Trident nuclear weapons system on Tuesday, awarding 350 million pounds worth of contracts to design a new generation of submarines that critics say are the result of outdated, Cold War thinking. The Successor class submarine would be used to replace the four Vanguard class vessels currently carrying Britain's Trident nuclear missiles, but a debate has raged about whether like-for-like renewal at an estimated cost of up to 20 billion pounds ($31.5 billion) is necessary.

Al Qaeda video calling for cyberattacks on Western targets raises alarm in Congress

May 23, 2012 by legitgov

Heads up! USociopaths are trolling to censor/shut down the Internet and blame 'al-Qaeda:' Al Qaeda video calling for cyberattacks on Western targets raises alarm in Congress 22 May 2012 A newly revealed Al Qaeda al-CIAduh video calls on followers to launch cyberattacks on Western targets, a message called "alarming" by U.S. lawmakers in light of the increase in such attacks last year. Sens. Susan Collins and [sociopath] Joe Lieberman, who top the Senate Homeland Security Committee, say they first learned of the Al Qaeda video a week ago in a meeting with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. The six-minute video instructs Al Qaeda followers that the U.S. is vulnerable to cyberattacks in the same way airline security was vulnerable in 2001 before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. [Gag me with a chainsaw! Everyone knows that the video was produced in Langley, Virginia!]

No votes on the measures have been taken.

Court blocks release of CIA interrogation methods

May 22, 2012 by legitgov

Court blocks release of CIA interrogation methods 21 May 2012 CIA secret interrogation methods - including detention and harsh questioning torture of suspected terrorists - remain off limits to public release, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The agency was sued eight years ago to provide details of certain communications describing the use of waterboarding and other direct intelligence-gathering methods of foreign terror suspects. A three-judge panel from the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled "intelligence methods" are not subject to a Freedom of Information Act request from the lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union. The CIA has admitted as part of the lawsuit it destroyed videotaped interrogations of "high-value" terror suspects Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri.

JPMorgan Chase Losses Eclipse $30 Billion

May 21, 2012 by legitgov

JPMorgan Chase Losses Eclipse $30 Billion 21 May 2012 Champion American complainer Jamie Dimon complained on Monday about Wall Street regulation, while also insisting he not be described as a complainer. All the while, his bank's losses, partly resulting from lax regulation, continued to grow. An initial $2 billion trading loss has likely resulted in a total loss of more than $30 billion, when you include a 19 percent drop in the bank's stock price. By itself, the trading loss alone might balloon to more than $6 billion, according to one estimate.

'West mulling military action against Iran' 21 May 2012 Some Western countries are still considering a military operation against Iran as an option over its nuclear programme, a Russian minister said Sunday. "Russia is concerned that the possibility to try to solve the Iranian nuclear problem by military means is still viewed as real," Xinhua quoted Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying. "We still hear messages from public and intelligence channels, which show that certain capitals regard this option as much more applicable to the situation (around Iran) than it was before," he said upon his return from the G8 summit in the US.

Federal appeals panel hears CIA leak case in Va. 18 May 2012 The federal government is asking an appeals panel to reverse a ruling that shields a reporter from testifying in the case of an ex-CIA officer charged with leaking classified information about a botched covert operation in Iran. U.S. Department of Justice attorney Robert Parker told the three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday that it should reverse a pretrial ruling by U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema that sharply narrowed the scope of reporter James Risen's testimony in the prosecution of Jeffrey Sterling to very narrow issues that didn't require Risen to name his source.

Chicago police accused of planting evidence in 'Molotov cocktail' plot 19 May 2012 Lawyers for three protesters arrested on terrorist-related charges ahead of the Nato summit have accused police of entrapping them and encouraging an alleged bomb-making effort.

According to court documents released on Saturday, the three men considered targeting Barack Obama's re-election headquarters and the home of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel. The Chicago police department said the men, described as self-proclaimed anarchists and members of the "Black Bloc" movement, were arrested on Wednesday and charged on Friday with conspiracy to commit terrorism, providing material support for terrorism and possession of an explosive incendiary device.

Fukushima Reactor 4 poses massive global risk

Fukushima Reactor 4 poses massive global risk 19 May 2012 The troubled Reactor 4 at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is at the centre of a potential catastrophe. Reactor 4 -- and to a lesser extent Reactor 3 -- still hold large quantities of cooling waters surrounding spent nuclear fuel, all bound by a fragile concrete pool located 30 metres above the ground, and exposed to the elements. A magnitude 7 or 7.5 earthquake would likely fracture that pool, and disaster would ensue, says Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer with Fairewinds Energy Education who has visited the site. The 1,535 spent fuel rods would become exposed to the air and would likely catch fire, with the most-recently added fuel rods igniting first.

Congressmen Seek to Lift Propaganda Ban

May 19, 2012 by legitgov

Congressmen Seek to Lift Propaganda Ban --Propaganda that was supposed to target foreigners could now be aimed at Americans, reversing a longstanding policy. 18 May 2012 An amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill, BuzzFeed has learned. The amendment would "strike the current ban on domestic dissemination" of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the Pentagon, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee's official website. The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987--that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government's misinformation campaigns.

Six others arrested Wednesday in the South Side raid were released Friday without being charged. [Anonymous, get busy.]
