C.I.A. delivers 'tens of millions of dollars' to Afghan druglords, Taliban

April 29, 2013 by legitgov

C.I.A. delivers 'tens of millions of dollars' to Afghan druglords, Taliban 29 Apr 2013 For more than a decade, wads of American dollars packed into suitcases, backpacks and, on occasion, plastic shopping bags have been dropped off every month or so at the offices of Afghanistan's president -- courtesy of the Central Intelligence Agency. All told, tens of millions of dollars have flowed from the C.I.A. to the office of President Hamid Karzai, according to current and former advisers to the Afghan leader. "We called it 'ghost money,'" said Khalil Roman, who served as Mr. Karzai's chief of staff from 2002 until 2005. "It came in secret, and it left in secret." Much of the C.I.A.'s money goes to paying off warlords and politicians, many of whom have ties to the drug trade and, in some cases, the Taliban. [Meanwhile, USociopaths are poised to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Meals On Wheels, etc.? It's time -- long past time -- for American Revolution #2.]

'Iran already past nuclear red line,' expert says

April 28, 2013 by legitgov

'Iran already past nuclear red line,' expert says --Former IDF intel chief says Tehran will be able to break out to the bomb this summer; calls for drastic increase in sanctions 23 Apr 2013 Iran has essentially crossed the "red line" set by Israel for its nuclear activity, and the coming few months will be a crucial period, Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, a former head of IDF Military Intelligence, said on Tuesday. Speaking at a security conference in Tel Aviv, Yadlin said that “for all intents and purposes, Iran has crossed Israel's red line... in the summer, Iran will be a month or two away from deciding about a bomb." [Israel 'crosses the red line' hourly - why no international outrage about that fact?]

'Police State' Registry System Being Set Up to Track Your Vaccination Status

April 28, 2013 by legitgov

'Police State' Registry System Being Set Up to Track Your Vaccination Status 26 Apr 2013 The Centers for Disease Control has been quietly rolling out a nationwide program called the Immunization Information Systems (IIS), registering your vaccine information into a database. This effort has been run in parallel with state vaccine registry implementations... The Centers for Disease Control's goal is to get 95% or greater vaccine compliance. One function of the CDC's Immunization Information System is to "forecast" vaccines due, past due, or coming due. When these tactics don't work or are ignored, expect more a more confrontational strategy. Keep in mind what happened on Christmas Eve 2009. The U.S. Senate passed H.R. 3590. The bill eventually became Public Law No. 111-148, which gives the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) authorization to create "vaccination squads" in local communities and seek out unvaccinated children. The "vaccine squads" are called the Community Preventive Services Task Force. [We'll take your shot after you take ours.]

Muslim group says spray-painting of Oklahoma mosque may be Boston backlash

April 28, 2013 by legitgov

Muslim group says spray-painting of Oklahoma mosque may be Boston backlash 27 Apr 2013 Police said Saturday they were investigating what a Muslim advocacy group described as an act of vandalism against an Oklahoma City mosque that may have been part of a backlash after the Boston Marathon bombings. Words were spray-painted on the mosque before dawn Saturday, said Lt. Arthur Gregory, a spokesman for Oklahoma City police. The Council on American-Islamic Relations said in a statement that the words were obscenities. It wants the matter investigated as a hate crime and wants state and federal law enforcement to determine whether the vandalism was a reaction to the bombings. [Since this was staged by the FBI, they should have spray painted the FBI Headquarters, instead.]

Police eye second car in Watertown shootout after Boston bombing 27 Apr 2013 Two cars, not one, appear to be at the center of the investigation into how the two brothers allegedly behind the Boston Marathon bombings carried out the fatal shooting of a police officer and the wounding of another during their final night rampage. An NBC News probe over the past several days has established that the brothers used and then dumped a green Honda as well as a stolen SUV as they led police on a wild chase. Massachusetts State Police, combined with local law enforcement, conducted a reenactment Thursday night at the scene of the April 18 shooting of Officer Sean Collier in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Syria: U.S. manipulating chemical weapons evidence, like it did with Iraq

April 28, 2013 by legitgov

Syria: U.S. manipulating chemical weapons evidence, like it did with Iraq 26 Apr 2013 Syria denies that it has used, or even possesses, chemical weapons, accusing the United States and Britain of lying in order to pressure the embattled Damascus government. Syrian Information Minister Omran Al-Zoubi talked to Russia TV on Friday, dismissing a claim by U.S. officials a day earlier that they had evidence the chemical weapon sarin had been used in Syria on a small scale. Al-Zoubi said the Syrian government is the one that called for an investigation of an incident in which it claimed chemical weapons were used by "terrorist groups." Syria does not have chemical weapons and would not use them if it did, he said.

Six Afghan policemen poisoned, shot to death; seventh is missing 26 Apr 2013 Six village police officers were poisoned and then shot to death Thursday night at a remote outpost in northern Afghanistan, the deputy governor of Kunduz province reported Friday. A seventh member of the Afghan Local Police unit is missing. An investigation has concluded that the officer conspired with insurgents to poison fellow officers and then flee, said Hamdullah Danishi, the deputy governor. The killings took place in the Dasht e Archi district in northeastern Kunduz, about 180 miles north of Kabul, the capital. The incident was one of several in recent months in which insurgents have infiltrated Afghan security force units or recruited police or soldiers to poison or attack their comrades.

Jordanians torch U.S. flag to protest troop deployment 26 Apr 2013 Jordanian protesters torched a U.S. flag at a demonstration in Amman Friday against an American troop deployment in Jordan in connection with the war in neighboring Syria as hundreds also rallied in other cities. An AFP photographer said about 400 people took to the streets of the old city of Amman after weekly Muslim prayers chanting: "We don't want to see American" soldiers in our country. Some demonstrators set on fire a U.S. flag before the rally broke off into two groups, one heading towards the royal palace that overlooks downtown Amman, while the other marched on the main square outside city hall. Similar protests were held in the northern city of Irbid and in Zarqa, east of the capital, a stronghold of Islamists, where demonstrators chanted: "America is the head of the snake" and "Syria free, free. America out," witnesses said.

April 28, 2013 by legitgov

Red Cross arrives at Guantanamo as hunger strike hits 100 mark 27 Apr 2013 International Red Cross delegates began inspecting conditions at the Guantánamo prison camps on Saturday, as the U.S. military said the number of hunger strikers had reached 100. One-fifth of the hunger strikers were being force fed nutritional supplements through feeding tubes, said Army Lt. Col. Samuel House, a prison camps spokesman. Five of the 20 men being force fed were hospitalized, although none "currently have any life-threatening conditions," House said by email from the remote base in southeast Cuba. In Washington, International Red Cross spokesman Simon Schorno said five delegates arrived Friday at the Navy base for a "an ad-hoc assessment visit" now that the majority of captives are in single-cell lockdown.

San Francisco gay pride rescinds honour for Bradley Manning --SF Pride president says notification that WikiLeaks suspect would be honorary grand marshal was 'an error' 27 Apr 2013 The president of San Francisco's annual gay pride celebration said on Friday that Bradley Manning, the US Army private who is charged in a massive leak of US secrets to the WikiLeaks website, will not be an honorary grand marshal after all. SF Pride board president Lisa Williams said in a statement that an employee of the organization had prematurely notified imprisoned intelligence specialist Manning this week that he had been selected for the distinction, which recognizes about a dozen celebrities, politicians and community organizations each year for their contributions to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities.

April 28, 2013 by legitgov

Deploy drones to hover above next Boston Marathon, Police Commissioner says 24 Apr 2013 Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis is pushing for a city-run system of eye-level street surveillance technology and making a case for a dedicated NYPD-style anti-terrorism unit to protect Boston from another soft-target strike like the deadly marathon bombing. Davis said he would also consider deploying domestic reconnaissance drones to hover above next year’s Boston Marathon. The use of domestic surveillance drones to hunt terrorists in U.S. cities has been hotly debated, but yesterday New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said they were all but inevitable.

Maher also said that America is becoming a "police state."

April 27, 2013 by legitgov

Some force-fed captives are cleared for release from Guantánamo 26 Apr 2013 At least four of the captives being force-fed at Guantánamo were cleared for release years ago. As of Friday, the U.S. prison in southeast Cuba classified 97 of its 166 captives as hunger strikers, according to Army Lt. Col. Samuel House, a prison spokesman. Navy medical workers were administering tube feedings to 19 of the hunger strikers, five of them at the prison hospital. Prison officials have refused to name any of the hunger strikers. But the Justice Department has been notifying the attorneys of prisoners who have become so malnourished that they now require the tube feedings.

Official number of Guantanamo Bay hunger strikers jumps to 100 27 Apr 2013 The official number of hunger strikers at Guantanamo Bay reached 100 on Saturday -- three more than the day before. Twenty of the detainees are receiving enteral feeds, five of whom are being observed in a detainee hospital. Lawyers for the detainees contest the official numbers, saying that some 130 prisoners are actually taking part in the protest. The hunger strike began around February 6, when detainees claimed prison officials searched their copies of the Koran for contraband, according to their attorneys. Prisoners are also protesting their extrajudicial incarceration at the prison.

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever --The Illuminati were amateurs. The second huge financial scandal of the year reveals the real international conspiracy: There's no price the big banks can't fix 25 Apr 2013 In the Libor scandal, at least three -- and perhaps as many as 16 -- of the name-brand too-big-to-fail banks have been manipulating global interest rates, in the process messing around with the prices of upward of $500 trillion worth of financial instruments. When that sprawling con burst into public view last year, it was easily the biggest financial scandal in history... But word has leaked that the London-based firm ICAP, the world's largest broker of interest-rate swaps, is being investigated by American authorities for behavior that sounds eerily reminiscent of the Libor mess. Regulators are looking into whether or not a small group of brokers at ICAP may have worked with up to 15 of the world's largest banks to manipulate ISDAfix, a benchmark number used around the world to calculate the prices of interest-rate swaps.

After Boston, spending on video surveillance expected to surge

April 27, 2013 by legitgov

After Boston, spending on video surveillance expected to surge 26 Apr 2013 Video surveillance, a market that was already on an upward trajectory, is expected to receive a big boost in spending following the bombings in Boston. The market for video surveillance equipment was already forecast to grow to $20.5 billion in revenue in 2016, up 114% from 2010's revenue of $9.6 billion, according to IHS, an insights and analytics company. But now, IHS says it is recalculating its forecast after the Boston Marathon bombings. IHS says high-profile terrorist attacks historically have driven governments to increase spending on video surveillance equipment, and the same is expected following the Boston bombings.

Syrian officials deny government use of chemical weapons 26 Apr 2013 Two Syrian officials have denied Western allegations that the government in Damascus has used chemical weapons against foreign-backed militants. An unnamed Syrian government official said on Friday that President Bashar Assad's military "did not and will not use chemical weapons even if it had them," AP news agency reported. He added that the Syrian army has no need for using chemical weapons "because it is capable of reaching any area in Syria it wants" without them.

Lab-Altered H5N1 Flu More Infectious to Humans than Birds

Lab-Altered H5N1 Flu More Infectious to Humans than Birds 26 Apr 2013 A new study suggests a laboratory-mutated H5N1 avian influenza virus could pose a greater risk to humans than to birds, adding to concerns about the new avian flu strain that has emerged recently in China. Over a year ago, Japanese researchers created a genetically-altered version of the H5N1 avian influenza virus to explore the risk of start human-to-human transmission. They reported in the journal Nature in early 2012 that the mutated pathogen could be transmitted among mammals through the air in aerosol droplets -- for example, from sneezing. They conducted their experiments with ferrets, small domesticated mammals that are a good model for human disease transmission. [Right, US (and Japanese) bioterrorists are *dying* to get the pandemic party started, to make a killing on their deadly vaccines.]
