Arrest warrant for Iraq V.P. on terror charge 19 Dec 2011 Iraq's Shiite-led government issued an arrest warrant Monday for Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi, the country's highest ranking Sunni official, on terrorism charges. Interior Ministry spokesman Adil Daham told reporters about the warrant on Monday and state-run television aired what it characterized as 'confessions' by alleged terrorists linked to al-Hashemi. Since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein and his Sunni-dominated Baath party government, the Sunni minority has constantly complained of attempts by the Shiite majority to sideline them.

Iowa GOP worried by hacker threat to caucus vote --Video claims to be from Anonymous 19 Dec 2011 Republican Party officials in Iowa are taking new steps to secure their vote counting systems after an anonymous threat suggested computer hackers could attempt to disrupt next month's presidential nominating caucuses. A video uploaded to YouTube features a computer-generated voice denouncing a corrupt political system and calls on supporters to "peacefully shut down" the Jan. 3 caucuses.[Great! Since the GOP *stole* the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections (and then some), the hypocritical little maggots should just slither back under the rocks from whence they came and shut up.]

US to send combat ships to Asian ports 18 Dec 2011 The United States has put forward plans to station Navy combat ships in Singapore and has also been considering more deployments to the Philippines and Thailand. Asian ports are set to be used more frequently as US officials consider a greater presence in the region. According to Press TV, US Admiral Jonathan Greenert has stated in an academic article that "several" combat ships will be stationed in Singapore, with the US Navy relying more on host-nation ports where ships, aircraft and crews can "refuel, rest, resupply and repair while deployed."

December 18, 2011 by legitgov

Israel, US: We will stop Iran 18 Dec 2011 Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak says Tel Aviv and Washington are determined to stop Iran's nuclear program and do not rule out any option to this end. "Our two countries clearly believe that a nuclear Iran is neither conceivable nor acceptable and we are determined to stop Iran," Barak told Israel's public radio on Sunday. He added, "We reiterated the fact that we must not take any option off the table." The remarks come two days after US President Barack Obama once again said that Washington would take "no options off the table" in its effort to halt Iran's nuclear activities.

Army: Manning Kept Copy of His Chatroom Confession 18 Dec 2011 Forensic investigators searching Bradley Manning's computers and removable media found a full log of the online chats Manning conducted with former hacker [dirt-bag] Adrian Lamo in which Manning described his alleged leaking of classified information, a government witness revealed during testimony on Saturday. Investigators also discovered classified information on an SD memory card they found at the Maryland home of Manning’s aunt, Debra Van Alstyne, where he had been living before enlisting in the Army. Additionally, the government was able to recover logs from a Secret-level U.S. intelligence search engine called Intelink, a system that allows government workers to search for classified documents on the SIPRnet. The logs detailed the searches performed from the IP address assigned to Manning's workstation in Iraq.

Seven judges to hear Julian Assange extradition appeal 16 Dec 2011 A panel of seven supreme court justices will hear Julian Assange's appeal against extradition to Sweden to face accusations of rape and sexual assault.

Senate OKs deal to extend payroll tax cuts for 2 months; demands quick decision on Keystone oil pipeline 17 Dec 2011 Capping a rare day of congressional bipartisanship DemocRATic/Obusha surrender, Senate leaders agreed on a deal Friday night to extend Social Security payroll tax cuts and jobless benefits for two months. The agreement, which was hailed by the White House, also forces President Obama to decide within 60 days whether to greenlight a Republican-backed [catastrophic] plan for an oil pipeline stretching from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast. The deal was reached hours after the White House publicly pulled back on a threat to veto any bill that lumped together the payroll tax cut extension with a Republican demand for a quick decision on whether to build the 1,700-mile Keystone XL pipeline.

50 arrested in Occupy Wall Street demonstration 17 Dec 2011 New York police arrested 50 protesters Saturday on what organizers from Occupy Wall Street were dubbing a day to "re-occupy," coinciding with the movement's three-month anniversary. Those arrested were charged with trespassing after they attempted to scale a fence belonging to a church in lower Manhattan, NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said. Browne added that the arrests "may have stymied plans to cut through the fence on multiple sides." [*May have?*]

Last U.S. Troops Leave Iraq, Ending Bloodiest U.S. War Since Vietnam --Thousands of Blackwater mercenaries remain 17 Dec 2011 In the end, there was no decisive battle, no peace treaty. The United States' bloodiest conflict since Vietnam ended with a border crossing. After nearly nine years, $800 billion, 4,500 American dead and an estimated 100,000 Iraqi dead, the war in Iraq is over -- at least for the U.S. military. At just after XX a.m. local, the last U.S. combat troops crossed from Iraq into Kuwait along the same roads the United States used to invade the country in 2003. [Now it's up to the Iraqi resistance to kick the Blackwater mercenaries *out.*]

December 17, 2011 by legitgov

Iran Arrests Another CIA Spy 17 Dec 2011 The Iranian Intelligence Ministry announced on Saturday that it has arrested an agent of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in Iran immediately after he started his spying activities inside the country.

'Iran Army hacked US drone's system'

'Iran Army hacked US drone's system' 17 Dec 2011 Commenting on Iran's recent downing of an aggressive US drone, a former CIA agent says the Iranian Army's experts managed to hack the aircraft's cyber system and then brought it down. The downing of the drone by Iran was another defeat for the United States in the area of espionage, Robert Baer, a former US Central Intelligence Agency officer, who used to operate in the Middle East, was cited by French-language Swiss newspaper 20 Minutes, IRNA reported on Saturday. On December 4, the Iranian military's electronic warfare unit announced that Iran had downed with minimal damage the US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth reconnaissance aircraft, while it was in violation of the Iranian airspace.

Second Iraqi province seeks autonomy from Baghdad 13 Dec 2011 A split provincial council in Diyala has signed a request for the province to be granted regional status, a first step in seeking greater autonomy from the Baghdad government, council members said Tuesday. The move comes two months after the provincial council in Salahuddin, former leader Saddam Hussein's home province, declared semi-autonomous status. Sixteen of 29 Diyala provincial council members signed the request - all members of the Kurdish and opposition Iraqiya blocs, which are suspicious of Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki's Shiite Muslim-dominated government.

House cybersecurity bill would establish federal overseer

December 17, 2011 by legitgov

House cybersecurity bill would establish federal overseer 16 Dec 2011 Members of the House Homeland Security Committee introduced a cybersecurity bill on Thursday that would establish a quasi-governmental entity to oversee information-sharing with the private sector. [Oh. I thought the hypocritical sociopaths aka GOP detested 'czars?' I guess if it's *their* czars, they're not!] Like the other [fascist] cybersecurity bills offered by the House GOP, the Promoting and Enhancing Cybersecurity and Information Sharing Effectiveness (PrECISE Act) encourages private firms to share information on cyber threats. By authorizing DHS to oversee civilian cybersecurity, the legislation aligns with proposals from both the Senate and the White House, but it is unclear how much authority DHS would have to enforce its security standards.

Ron Paul: Strike against Iran would risk a repeat of 'useless' Iraq war

December 16, 2011 by legitgov

Ron Paul: Strike against Iran would risk a repeat of 'useless' Iraq war 15 Dec 2011 Libertarian-minded Ron Paul separated himself from the pack of Republican candidates at tonight's debate by urging restraint in response to a possible Iranian nuclear threat, saying the U.S. can ill afford a repeat of its war in on Iraq. Paul said there was "no U.N. evidence" that Iran is developing a nuclear weapons program, calling claims to the contrary "war propaganda." "To me the greatest danger is that we will have a president that will overreact, and we will soon bomb Iran," he said. "We ought to really sit back and think, not jump the gun and believe that we are going to be attacked. That's how we got into that useless war in Iraq and lost so much." [Exactly.]

Russian spacecraft filled with toxic fuel and radioactive material set to crash-land on Earth 16 Dec 2011 A Russian spacecraft with toxic fuel and radioactive material on board is set to crash-land on Earth. Russian space agency Roscosmos said that between 20 and 30 fragments of the probe with a total weight of up to 200 kilos (440lbs) will survive the fiery plunge and shower the Earth's surface. Phobos-Ground weighs 14.6 tons, which includes 12 tons of highly toxic fuel. Experts had warned that if the fuel has frozen, some could survive entry into Earth and pose a serious threat if it falls over populated areas.

'Iran downing drone, body blow to US'

December 16, 2011 by legitgov

'Iran downing drone, body blow to US' 16 Dec 2011 The downing of a stealth US spy drone by Iran's Army has resoundingly dented the American intelligence machine, besides humiliating the US officials pursuing anti-Iran plans, a political expert tells Press TV. "If truth be told, the downing of the spy drone has surely delivered a heavy blow to the intelligence apparatus of the CIA and rustled many feathers in Washington," Ismail Salami, an Iranian author and Middle East expert, wrote in an opinion piece published on Press TV on Thursday. The Iranian "electronic ambush" ensnared the aircraft -- while it was in violation of Iran's airspace -- "to the humiliation of US officials," he pointed out.

Military given go-ahead to detain US terrorist suspects without trial

December 16, 2011 by legitgov

Military given go-ahead to detain US terrorist suspects without trial 14 Dec 2011 Barack Obama has abandoned a commitment to veto a new security law that allows the military to indefinitely detain without trial American terrorism suspects arrested on US soil who could then be shipped to Guantánamo Bay. Human rights groups accused the president of deserting his principles and disregarding the long-established principle that the military is not used in domestic policing. The law, contained in the defence authorisation bill that funds the US military, effectively extends the battlefield in the "war on terror" to the US and applies the established principle that combatants in any war are subject to military detention.

IMF chief warns over 1930s-style threats 15 Dec 2011 The managing director of the International Monetary Fund has warned that the global economy faces the prospect of "economic retraction, rising protectionism, isolation and... what happened in the 30s [Depression]", as European tensions again flared over suggestions in Paris that the UK’s credit rating should be downgraded before France's. "There is no economy in the world, whether low-income countries, emerging markets, middle-income countries or super-advanced economies that will be immune to the crisis that we see not only unfolding but escalating," Christine Lagarde said in a speech at the US state department in Washington.
