New York Held Hurricane Sandy Drill in October...1997 Posted by Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 26 Oct 2012 The Hurricane Simulation 04 Oct 1997 Westchester County Communications Officer Sandy Fried, an Amateur Radio operator and ODES staff member, had recently attended a training seminar at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Part of the training was a simulation using data from the Hurricane of 1938 that caused major losses on Long Island and in Westchester. The texts of the simulated bulletins, forecasts, discussions and strike probabilities along with the hurricane's track were sent home with the seminar attendees. We named the simulated hurricane after Sandy, who incidentally was nine years old during the real Hurricane of 1938. [Courtesy for this nugget, Meria Heller.]

Bush crony] Silvio Berlusconi was sentenced to four years in jail on Friday for tax fraud in connection with the purchase of broadcasting rights by his Mediaset television company. The billionaire media magnate, who was convicted three times during the 1990s in the first degree before being cleared by higher courts, has the right to appeal the ruling two more times before the sentence becomes definitive. That process is likely to be lengthy and he will not be jailed unless he loses the final appeal.

Iran military action not 'right course at this time', Downing Street says

Iran military action not 'right course at this time', Downing Street says --Government reiterates its current opposition to military action against Iran after revelation US has requested use of UK bases 26 Oct 2012 The UK government has reiterated that it does not believe military action against Iran would be appropriate at the moment, following the disclosure that Britain has rebuffed US requests to use UK military bases to support the buildup of forces in the Gulf. Downing Street said: "We are working closely with the US with regard to UK bases" but "the government does not think military action is the right course at this point of time".

Britain rejects US request to use UK bases in nuclear standoff with Iran

Britain rejects US request to use UK bases in nuclear standoff with Iran --Secret legal advice states pre-emptive strike could be in breach of international law as Iran not yet 'clear and present threat' --Military action not 'right course', Downing Street says 25 Oct 2012 Britain has rebuffed US pleas to use military bases in the UK to support the build-up of forces in the Gulf, citing secret legal advice which states that any pre-emptive strike on Iran could be in breach of international law. The Guardian has been told that US diplomats have also lobbied for the use of British bases in Cyprus, and for permission to fly from US bases on Ascension Island in the Atlantic and Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, both of which are British territories. The US approaches are part of contingency planning over the nuclear standoff with Tehran, but British ministers have so far reacted coolly. They have pointed US officials to legal advice drafted by the attorney general's office which has been circulated to Downing Street, the Foreign Office and the Ministry of Defence.

Hurricane Sandy 'could break 100-plus-year weather records': meteorologist

October 26, 2012 by legitgov

Global warming, the greatest nationl security threat went unmentioned in the 'debates,' of course. We don't want to upset the Koch-sucker brothers and ExxonMobil, now, do we? 'Our best available number-crunching simulations of the atmosphere simply weren't designed for this scenario' Hurricane Sandy 'could break 100-plus-year weather records': meteorologist 26 Oct 2012 Computer models are now showing a storm so intense that it would break 100-plus year weather records for the most intense pressure readings ever recorded throughout nearly all of the Mid-Atlantic region northward into New York City and Long Island...  Normally, when hurricanes approach the East Coast from Sandy's angle, they are pulled safely out to sea by a semi-permanent low-pressure center near Iceland. This time around, that low pressure isn't there. In fact, it's been replaced by a high pressure so intense it only occurs approximately 0.2% of the time on average. The coincidence of that strong of a high pressure "block" being in place just when a hurricane is passing by -- in and of itself a very rare occurrence -- is just mind bogglingly rare. It's the kind of stuff that's important enough to rewrite meteorological textbooks. The result: Instead of heading out to sea Sandy's full force will be turned back against the grain and directed squarely at the East Coast. To top it off, an intense early-season snowstorm moving eastward out of the Great Lakes will provide an additional boost of energy to Sandy as it approaches the shore, broadening its windfield, strengthening its rainfall and waves, and increasing its destructive potential.

UK support for US drones in Pakistan may be war crime, court is told --Case opened as RAF confirmed it is to double number of its own drones flying combat and surveillance operations over Afghanistan 23 Oct 2012 The British government's support for US drone operations over Pakistan may involve acts of assisting murder or even war crimes, the high court heard on Tuesday. In the first serious legal challenge in the English courts to the drones campaign, lawyers for a young Pakistani man whose father was killed by a strike from an unmanned aircraft are seeking to have the sharing of UK locational intelligence declared unlawful. The British government has declined to state whether or not its signals intelligence agency GCHQ passes information in support of the CIA drone operations over Pakistan, although the court heard that media reports suggest that it does.

UK claims possible court hearing into CIA drone strikes in Pakistan would risk denting US ties 25 Oct 2012 Ties between Britain, the U.S. and Pakistan could be jeopardized if a judge grants a request for a court inquiry into the possible role of U.K. spy agencies in aiding covert CIA drone strikes in Pakistan's northwest tribal region, a government lawyer told Britain's High Court on Thursday. James Eadie, lawyer for Britain's Foreign Office, insisted that intelligence sharing between Britain and the U.S. -- already under strain by previous disclosures made in London courtrooms -- and links between Washington and Pakistan would all potentially be cast into doubt.

Bushies in Romneyworld

Bushies in Romneyworld 25 Oct 2012 Mitt Romney's running as far as he can from George W. Bush. In all three presidential debates, Romney's raced from the last Republican president's [sic] policies -- claiming he's got new ideas for foreign policy, the deficit and energy. But for all of Romney's efforts to divorce himself from Bush, behind the scenes there's one critical way he's given the era a full embrace: its people. Romney's brought on a cadre of Bush officials to serve as his senior policy advisers, lead his presidential transition effort and help him raise millions to fuel his run -- the pillars of his campaign and a potential administration.

Sununu suggests Powell's endorsement of Obama is racial 25 Oct 2012 John Sununu, the former New Hampshire governor and surrogate for Mitt Romney, suggested during an interview with CNN Thursday night that Colin Powell endorsed President Obama because both are African American. Piers Morgan asked Sununu to comment on the former secretary of state, who is a Republican, bucking his party to back Obama. "[F]rankly, when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama?" Sununu said. "What reason would that be?" Morgan pressed. "Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being President of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him."
