The Strategic Partnership Agreement, which Washington and Kabul have been discussing for over a year, will be the framework for U.S. involvement in Afghanistan beyond 2014, when the last foreign combat troops are due to leave Afghanistan.

Netanyahu: Strike on Iran's nuclear facilities possible within months 09 Mar 2012 An attack on Iran could take place within a matter of months, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a series of television interviews on Thursday. "We're not standing with a stopwatch in hand," he said. "It's not a matter of days or weeks, but also not of years. The result must be removal of the threat of nuclear weapons in Iran's hands." Netanyahu gave separate interviews to all three Israeli television stations, the first he has given since his return from Washington earlier this week.

Israel asks U.S. for arms that could aid Iran strike 08 Mar 2012 Israel has asked the United States for advanced "bunker-buster" bombs and refueling planes that could improve its ability to attack Iran's underground nuclear sites, an Israeli official said on Thursday. "Such a request was made" around the time of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington this week, the official said, confirming media reports. But the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity given the sensitivity of the issue, played down as "unrealistic" Israeli reports that the United States would condition supplying the hardware on Israel promising not to attack Iran this year.

New strain of flu found in bats

March 9, 2012 by legitgov

New strain of flu found in bats --'And even though they don't have all the answers yet, infectious disease experts say just knowing this strain exists is giving them a head start at creating a vaccine.' 06 Mar 2012 The blockbuster movie "Contagion" showed just how easy it is for an emerging disease to spread across the world. Now, some say the cause of that fictional flu is at least one step closer to reality. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is tracking creating something new. It's not the bird flu. Not swine flu. But rather, the bat flu. Researchers in Guatemala 'found' a new strain of influenza in bats and are now watching to see how and if it can transmit to humans. Bats are known to carry emerging diseases.

LulzSec's Sabu: 'ask me about the CIA'

March 9, 2012 by legitgov

LulzSec's Sabu: 'ask me about the CIA' --When the Guardian spoke to the hacker last year, he was keen to discuss claims he worked for the authorities By James Ball 07 Mar 2012 [Sabu] asked me to join him in an off-the-record internet chat – a conversation that happened seven weeks after Sabu, now unmasked as Hector Xavier Monsegur, had already been picked up by the FBI. Given the latest revelations about Sabu's activities, that he worked as an informer from after his arrest on 7 June until just a few days ago, I think it is appropriate to publish a few extracts from our conversation. Sabu – and we cannot even be sure that our correspondent was the real Monsegur and not a US agent – was not representing himself accurately to the newspaper. If anything, he was testing the Guardian out, openly flirting with the notion that he worked for the CIA – and then inviting me to knock him down.

Panetta: U.S. Has Potential Military Plans for Iran

March 8, 2012 by legitgov

Panetta: U.S. Has Potential Military Plans for Iran 08 Mar 2012 The Pentagon is preparing an array of military options for striking Iran if hard-hitting diplomatic and economic sanctions fail to persuade Tehran to drop its nuclear ambitions, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told National Journal in an interview on Thursday. Panetta said such planning had been under way "for a long time," a reflection of the Obama administration's mounting concern over Iran's [alleged] continued progress towards a nuclear weapon. Panetta said in the interview that a unilateral Israeli strike against Iran would be less effective than one conducted by the U.S., which has a significantly larger air force and an array of advanced weapons more powerful than any possessed by Israel.

Elite hacker arrested in NY cooperated from Day 1 08 Mar 2012 In his Twitter postings, the elite computer hacker known as "Sabu" urged followers to resist the U.S. government and its agents. But court papers made public Thursday reveal that Hector Xavier Monsegur put up no such fight when FBI agents first knocked on his door on June 7. From almost that first moment, he began talking, naming names and helping investigators pick apart the international community of Internet saboteurs [heroes]. He was arrested at 10:15 p.m. By the next day, federal prosecutors had told a judge that Monsegur had given them detailed information on other hackers suspected of breaking into the computer systems at several big corporations.

March 8, 2012 by legitgov

FBI director: Have to check whether targeted killing rule is outside US only  --'Uh, I'm not certain whether that was addressed or not.' 07 Mar 2012 FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder's "three criteria" for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S. Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency's budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S. "I have to go back. Uh, I'm not certain whether that was addressed or not," Mueller said when asked by Rep. Kevin Yoder, R-Kan., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting.

"But when they're a cluster like this, we have to wonder if it may be a mutant strain of flu virus. There's been some concern about a swine flu variant."

Bin Laden WAS NOT buried at sea, but flown to U.S. for cremation at secret location - STRATFOR email

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Bin Laden WAS NOT buried at sea, but flown to the U.S. for cremation at secret location, claims intelligence boss in leaked email 06 Mar 2012 The fate of Osama bin Laden's remains have been called into question after emails leaked from an intelligence analysis firm say the body of the terror leader was actually sent to the U.S. for cremation. According to the emails, the Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] boss was shot and killed during the famous Navy SEAL Team Six raid on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, was transported back to the U.S. and cremated. The emails were allegedly obtained by the hacker group Anonymous from Stratfor, an organisation dealing with analysis of intelligence and geopolitical analysis. It's also known as the 'Shadow CIA'. After 'bin Laden' was killed in the famous raid in Pakistan on May 2 2011, the Obama administration said his body was buried at sea off the USS Carl Vinson - in accordance with Islamic tradition. But in a set of emails given to WikiLeaks, the firm's vice president for intelligence, Fred Burton, says he doubts the official White House version of what happened to bin Laden's body. Burton says the body was 'bound for Dover, [Delaware] on [a] CIA plane' and 'onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda [Maryland]'. The claims are sure to stoke conspiracy theorists, especially since the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology that Burton refers to closed its doors on September 15, 2011, four months after bin Laden's death. [I don't know who the US pretended to kill and cremate (to eliminate DNA evidence), but see: News of Bin Laden's Death and Funeral - December 2001.]

Netanyahu asked Panetta to approve sale of bunker-busting bombs, U.S. official says

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Netanyahu asked Panetta to approve sale of bunker-busting bombs, U.S. official says 06 Mar 2012 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu requested the United States approve the sale of advanced refueling aircraft as well as GBU-28 bunker-piercing bombs to Israel during a recent meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, a top U.S. official said on Tuesday. The American official said that U.S. President Barack Obama instructed Panetta to work directly with Defense Minister Ehud Barak on the matter, indicating that the U.S. administration was inclined to look favorably upon the request as soon as possible. During the administration of former U.S. President [sic] George Bush, the U.S. refused to sell bunker-penetrating bombs and refueling aircrafts to Israel, as a result of American estimates that Israel would then use them to strike Iran's nuclear facilities. Following Obama's entrance into the White House, however, the United States approves a string of Israeli requests to purchase advance armament.
