FBI Taught Agents They Could 'Bend or Suspend the Law'

March 28, 2012 by legitgov

FBI Taught Agents They Could 'Bend or Suspend the Law' 28 Mar 2012 The FBI taught its agents that they could sometimes "bend or suspend the law" in their hunt for terrorists and criminals. Other FBI instructional material, discovered during a months-long review of FBI counterterrorism training, warned agents against shaking hands with "Asians" and said Arabs were prone to "Jekyll & Hyde temper tantrums." These are just some of the disturbing results of the FBI's six-month review into how the Bureau trained its counterterrorism agents. That review, now complete, did not result in a single disciplinary action for any instructor.

Michael Krull, a former advance man and a college friend of Callista Gingrich's who took over the campaign after a staff exodus in June, was replaced last weekend by Vince Haley, who has worked for Gingrich for nine years and currently is deputy campaign manager and policy director.

March 28, 2012 by legitgov

Japan nuclear reactor has fatally high radiation, no water --Tuesday's examination with an industrial endoscope detected radiation levels up to 10 times the fatal dose inside the chamber. 27 Mar 2012 One of Japan's crippled nuclear reactors still has fatally high radiation levels and hardly any water to cool the No. 2 reactor, according to an internal examination Tuesday that renews doubts about the plant's stability. Plant officials previously said more than half of melted fuel has breached the core and dropped to the floor of the primary containment vessel, some of it splashing against the wall or the floor. Particles from melted fuel have probably sent radiation levels up to dangerously high 70 sieverts per hour inside the container, said Junichi Matsumoto, spokesman for Tokyo Electric Power Co.

March 28, 2012 by legitgov

Feds: San Onofre nuclear plant can't reopen until problems fixed 27 Mar 2012 The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, citing serious concerns about equipment failures at the San Onofre nuclear plant, on Tuesday prohibited plant operator Southern California Edison from restarting the plant until the problems are thoroughly understood [?!?] and fixed. The plant has already been shut down for two months, the longest in San Onofre's history, after a tube leak in one of the plant's steam generators released a small amount of radioactive steam. Neither regulators nor Edison have said when they believe the plant will reopen. Since then, unusual wear has been found on hundreds of tubes.

March 28, 2012 by legitgov

Afghan troops turn guns on NATO allies, killing 3 26 Mar 2012 Afghan security forces shot and killed three international troops Monday, one of them an American, in two attacks. They were the latest in a rising number of attacks in which Afghan forces have turned their weapons on their foreign partners. The killings reflect a spike in tensions between Afghan and international forces that follow an American soldier's alleged massacre of Afghan civilians, the burning of Muslim holy books at a U.S. base, and uncertainty about Afghanistan's fate as foreign troops prepare to pull out.

Supreme Court majority skeptical on 'health care' law

March 28, 2012 by legitgov

Supreme Court majority skeptical on 'health care' law 27 Mar 2012 In the fight over President Obama's 'health care' law, this was the main event. On Tuesday, the nine justices of the Supreme Court heard arguments on the part of the law that requires all Americans to have health insurance or pay a fine. It's called the [GOP-authored] individual mandate. The Obama administration said that the mandate will make sure everyone has health care while keeping insurance affordable. Opponents say it's a dangerous new power for the government by forcing citizens to buy a [flawed, overpriced and unnecessary] product. The health care law is considered President Obama's signature achievement, but Tuesday it appeared a majority of the justices were ready to describe the individual mandate another way: unconstitutional.

Support in US for Afghan War Drops Sharply, Poll Finds 27 Mar 2012 After a series of violent episodes and setbacks, support for the war in Afghanistan has dropped sharply among both Republicans and Democrats, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll. The survey found that more than two-thirds of those polled - 69 percent - thought that the United States should not be at war in Afghanistan. Just four months ago, 53 percent said that Americans should no longer be fighting in the conflict, more than a decade old. The increased disillusionment was even more pronounced when respondents were asked their impressions of how the war was going.

Pentagon to seek additional Iron Dome funding for Israel, U.S. official says 27 Mar 2012 The Pentagon will approach Congress to enlarge the amount aid the United States awards Israel toward the production of the Iron Dome anti-missile systems, a U.S. official said on Tuesday. Last week, Rep. Howard L. Berman introduced the Iron Dome Support Act (IDSA) authorizing U.S. President Barack Obama to provide assistance if requested by the Israeli government to procure additional Iron Dome systems.  While the Iron Dome Support Act was still in initial stages of the legislation process, it has already won support from both parties. [Oh, I though the US had a huge *deficit?* Paul Ryan wants to end Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid with, make no mistake about it, Obusha's tacit approval -- and yet, US taxpayers have to fund Israel's *insatiable* war machine?]

March 27, 2012 by legitgov

As with Iraq and every other country USociopaths invade and occupy for Exxon Mobil and Blackwater: Billions in cash smuggled out of Afghanistan every year 26 Mar 2012 "It's hard to estimate exactly how much is going out of Afghanistan, but I can tell you in 2011, 4.5 billion was (flown) out of Afghanistan," said Khan Afzal Hadawal, deputy governor of the bank of Afghanistan.

Army Tried to Delete Bales From Web After Arrest 22 Mar 2012 Besides waiting nearly a week before identifying the Army staff sergeant accused of killing 16 Afghan villagers, the U.S. military scrubbed its websites of references to his combat service.

But they weren't really gone. [*Duh.*] Despite the best efforts to remove it, the material about Bales was still available on the Internet, such as in cached versions of Web pages.

Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Mass. filed amicus brief in support of Obama's health-care law

Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Mass. filed amicus brief in support of Obama's health-care law --In SCOTUS case, Obamacare has industry allies 26 Mar 2012 Lawyers from the health insurance and hospital industries have petitioned the Supreme Court to save President Obama's health-care law from a constitutional challenge by 26 states and a small-business group, while other big-business lobbies have stayed neutral. Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts filed an amicus brief with the court in support of Obama's Department of Health & Human Services. The insurer writes that it played a central role in crafting Mitt Romney's Massachusetts health-care law that served as the prototype of Obamacare... On the question of constitutionality, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts argues that the individual mandate is "a valid exercise of the Commerce Power because Congress had a rational basis for concluding that, in the aggregate, the practice of self-insuring for the cost of health care substantially affects interstate commerce."

Court Opens 'Health-Care' Clash With Law That May End Case

If the US didn't have its busy-body nose in every country's business on the planet for Exxon Mobil and Blackwater, US citizens could have single-payer health care: Court Opens 'Health-Care' Clash With Law That May End Case 26 Mar 2012 The U.S. Supreme Court opened its historic arguments on President Barack Obama's health-care overhaul insurance cartel giveaway with several justices suggesting they are prepared to rule this year rather than wait for the law to take full effect. Justices including Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg today suggested they didn't view an 1867 law as barring them from ruling immediately on the central question, the law's requirement that Americans either get insurance or pay a penalty... The court is hearing three days of arguments on the 2010 law, Obama’s biggest legislative achievement [for Wall Street].

Iraq locks down Baghdad before Arab summit --Baghdad residents irked by tighter security 25 Mar 2012 Iraq's government has locked down Baghdad ahead of this week's Arab League Summit, throwing up a maze of security checkpoints and roadblocks as it seeks to protect the capital from insurgent attacks. The three-day summit is the first of its kind to be held in Iraq in more than two decades. Entire streets in Baghdad have been closed, SWAT teams have been combing the city, the government has declared a five-day public holiday, and around 100,000 extra security forces have been drafted in to man hundreds of checkpoints.

Merah may not have been attached to al-Qaeda --Police said there was no sign he had been in contact with organized groups or 'jihadists.' 24 Mar 2012 Investigators in France have said a suggestion by gunman Mohamed Merah that he was linked to al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] may have been false. They have found no sign that the gunman was under the umbrella of al-Qaeda or any other militant terror group. In disputing Mohamed Merah's claim of terrorist ties police have had to fend off questions as to why they were not tracking Merah, who they had been aware of for many years due to his perceived dedication to radical Islam. [LOL, *awkward!* It becomes even *more* embarrassing for USociopaths when reports emerge that these supposed 'jihadists' are on the CIA payroll. <g>]
