September 24, 2013 by legitgov

NIH to test H7N9 vaccines with adjuvants 18 Sep 2013 The National Institutes of Health (NIH) today announced the launch of a pair of clinical trials of a candidate vaccine for H7N9 avian influenza, including formulations containing [harmful] adjuvants to boost the immune response. Adjuvants are being tested because previous vaccines for H7 flu subtypes have not yielded strong immune responses, the NIH said. Although adjuvants are used in vaccines for some other diseases, no flu vaccines containing adjuvants have been licensed in the United States.

Argentinian polar bear might be moved to Winnipeg 24 Sep 2013 A polar bear in a South American zoo could soon call Winnipeg home. A team of experts from Winnipeg's Assiniboine Park Zoo are heading to Argentina in November to evaluate the health of the bear, named Arturo. If he is strong enough, he will make the journey to the Manitoba capital. ...The hot weather in Argentina is taking its toll on the 29-year-old Arturo. For a few weeks during the spring, protesters had also rallied outside the zoo, in the Argentinian city of Mendoza, to demand Arturo's release. [See: Send 'sad' Argentinian polar bear to Canada, supporters urge 12 Apr 2013.]

Brazil's Rousseff to UN: US surveillance an 'affront'

September 24, 2013 by legitgov

Brazil's Rousseff to UN: US surveillance an 'affront' 24 Sep 2013 Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff lambasted US spying on her country at Tuesday's UN summit, calling it a "breach of international law." She further warned that the NSA surveillance, revealed since June, threatened freedom of speech and democracy. "Meddling in such a manner in the lives and affairs of other countries is a breach of international law and as such it is an affront to the principles that should otherwise govern relations among countries, especially among friendly nations," Rousseff said. "Without the right to privacy, there is no real freedom of speech or freedom of opinion," Rousseff told the gathering of world leaders. "And therefore, there is no actual democracy," she added, criticizing the fact that Brazil had been targeted by the US.

House Republicans vote to extend 'Monsanto Protection Act' in spending bill that would gut 'Obamacare'

September 24, 2013 by legitgov

House Republicans vote to extend 'Monsanto Protection Act' in spending bill that would gut 'Obamacare' 20 Sep 2013 House Republicans hate "Obamacare," but seem just fine with the "Monsanto Protection Act." Tucked into the GOP's latest bid to gut the Affordable Care Act, the House passed a three-month extension on Friday of the Farmer Assurance Provision rider that circumvents judicial authority regarding the sale and planting of genetically modified crops. Dubbed the "Monsanto Protection Act" by foes of the provision that was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama in March, the legislation states that the United States Department of Agriculture will have final say over whether GMO crops can be planted and sold, rather than the courts, and shields companies corpora-terrrorists like Monsanto and Dow Chemical from certain lawsuits. Opponents of the provision blasted House Republicans for continuing to support what they see as an industry giveaway.

Poland declines once again to answer questions on alleged CIA jails

Poland declines once again to answer questions on alleged CIA jails 23 Sep 2013 Poland's government has, for a second time in 12 months, declined a request from the European Court of Human Rights to provide information about the alleged existence of secret CIA jails on its soil. The Strasbourg-based court is trying to find out how closely Poland cooperated with the clandestine part of U.S. operations. Poland is the only country with a domestic criminal investigation running into allegations it hosted a CIA "black site". If it is proven that Polish officials agreed to the jail, that would be a crime under Polish and international law.

Yemen leak: former FBI man admits passing information to Associated Press 23 Sep 2013 A former FBI explosives expert said on Monday he would plead guilty to revealing secret information for an Associated Press story about a US intelligence operation in Yemen in 2012. The story led to a leaks investigation and the seizure of AP phone records in the government's search for the information's source. Donald Sachtleben, 55, of Carmel, Indiana, said in court papers that he provided details of the operation to a reporter. He agreed to a prison sentence of three years and seven months for telling the news agency of the bomb plot, in addition to eight years and one month for unrelated child pornography charges, the court papers said.

Assad: Terrorists may attack chemical weapons inspectors, blame Damascus 23 Sep 2013 Syrian armed opposition may be ordered by its foreign sponsors to stage a false flag operation against foreign inspectors when they arrive in the country to monitor destruction of the country's chemical weapons stockpile, says the Syrian president. Bashar Assad voiced his concerns in an interview by China's state television CCTV in Damascus. The Syrian leader proposed this possible scenario as he was explaining how his government may be accused of trying to dodge its obligations to destroy its chemical arsenal. "We know that these terrorists are obeying the orders of other countries and these countries do drive these terrorists to commit acts that could get the Syrian government blamed for hindering this agreement," he explained.

Boston Police Commissioner Davis, face of Marathon bombing investigation, steps down 23 Sep 2013 Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis, who led his department's response to the Boston Marathon bombing, says he's stepping down after seven years on the job. Davis was thrust into the national spotlight on April 15 when twin explosions near the marathon finish line killed three people and wounded more than 260. Along with Menino and Gov. Deval Patrick, Davis ordered a daylong, city-wide lockdown after the two bombing suspects were involved in a shootout with police.

The non-venomous reptile, about eight inches (20 centimetres) long, was found near the doorway of a Boeing 747-400 bound for Tokyo on Sunday night, a Qantas spokeswoman told AFP.

Nairobi attack may trigger tighter security at malls worldwide

September 23, 2013 by legitgov

Holy coincidence, Batman! *Once again,* al-CIAduh explodes the security state cash cow: Nairobi attack may trigger tighter security at malls worldwide 22 Sep 2013 The deadly attack on a high-end Nairobi shopping mall on Saturday put the safety of malls around the world into the spotlight and could trigger moves to improve security and make it more visible. "They're obviously going to ramp up security," said Malachy Kavanagh, a spokesman for the International Council of Shopping Centers, a U.S.-based trade group of mall and shopping center owners, adding that he expected the U.S. government's Department of Homeland Security to reach out to the heads of corporate security for all American malls following the events in Kenya. Some of the changes that may be made include bringing in off-duty police officers into the mall, putting more non-uniformed security officers into uniform, and more closely coordinating with local police departments.

US military to hit targets in Kenya, other African states - Report

September 23, 2013 by legitgov

US military to hit targets in Kenya, other African states - Report 23 Sep 2013 The United States is reportedly preparing a list of targets for possible military strikes in Kenya and some other African countries. Former US general Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Peter Chiarelli said the strikes are aimed at targeting militants involved in Sunday's deadly attack on a shopping mall in the Kenyan capital city of Nairobi. Somalia's Al-Shabab fighters have reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it is in retaliation for Kenya's military actions inside Somalia. "They're developing targets...and refining target lists, trying to fill in any gaps that we possibly have," the former four-star general said during an interview with ABC's This Week on Sunday.

US wars in Afghanistan, Iraq to cost $6 trillion

US wars in Afghanistan, Iraq to cost $6 trillion 19 Sep 2013 The decade-long American wars in Afghanistan and Iraq would end up costing as much as $6 trillion, the equivalent of $75,000 for every American household, calculates Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. When President [sic] George Bush's National Economic Council Director, Lawrence Lindsey, had told the The Wall Street Journal that the war would cost between $100 billion and $200 billion, he found himself under intense fire from his colleagues in the administration which claimed that this was a gross overestimation. Consequently, Lindsey was forced to resign. The Bush administration had claimed at the outset that the Iraq war would be financed via Iraqi oil revenues, but Washington D.C. instead borrowed $2 trillion to finance the two wars, the bulk of it from foreign lenders. [See that? When it comes to financing US wars for oil and opium, the 'debt ceiling' matters about as much as a June bug in July. --LRP]

Companies seek to move in on Afghanistan's vast mineral wealth

Ah, then came the dawn. Companies seek to move in on Afghanistan's vast mineral wealth 22 Sep 2013 Few companies showed up to Afghanistan's fresh appeal for investment in its vast mineral wealth on Sunday, apparently deterred by trouble plaguing two of its largest projects and allowing small firms to emerge as the main contenders. Hopes are pinned on Afghanistan's trillion dollar wealth in resources weaning the country off international aid bribes, but early attempts to unlock its potential have hit serious setbacks. These appeared to have deterred major international firms from attending - leaving the path open to small investors with unconventional backgrounds criminals, prepared to take on deteriorating security and uncertainty ahead of next year's 'election.'

Peter King says al-Shabaab terror group recruited Somali Americans 22 Sep 2013 Representative Peter King, a member of the House homeland security committee, said on Sunday that the al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] affiliated group behind the deadly attack on an upscale shopping mall in Kenya recruited up to 50 people from Somali communities in the US. King said between 15 and 20 of the Somali Americans recruited by al-Shabaab remain active. The New York Republican said concern existed that some may return and "use their abilities on the US"; he also said he assumed the FBI and local law enforcement authorities were looking at spying on Somali-American communities to make sure no follow-up attacks were planned for the US.

Florida college to offer masters degree in drone warfare 22 Sep 2013 Secured inside a room you need a U.S. passport to enter is a modern arcade of war machines... The games here have great implications.

A graduate from this room on the campus of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach could be in that other room in as little as six months with a master's degree in drone warfare, his hand on the joystick, making $150,000 a year.

Ohio State University police acquires Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicle 17 Sep 2013 Ohio State University campus police (OSU PD) recently acquired what appears to be a Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicle to add to their fleet. Several attempts to contact the university have garnered little information about why a vehicle, which was specifically designed for asymmetric warfare, is needed on campus. The Ohio State University Department of Public Safety has acquired an armored military vehicle that looks like it belongs in Iraq or Afghanistan. Gary Lewis, a senior director of media relations at OSU, told The Daily Caller via email that the "unique, special-purpose vehicle is a replacement" for the "police fleet." He called the armored jalopy "an all-hazard, all-purpose, public safety-response vehicle" with "obviously enhanced capabilities."

Merkel wins in Germany, 'grand coalition' likely: exit polls 22 Sep 2013 Chancellor Angela Merkel clinched a third term in German elections Sunday but will be forced to form an awkward coalition with her chief rivals to govern Europe's top economy, exit polls indicated. In one of the tightest races in German history, they punished her pro-business partner, the Free Democrats, kicking them out of parliament for the first time since 1949, according to the exit polls on public television. The upstart anti-euro party AfD appeared to fall just short of the five-percent hurdle to representation amid anger over German contributions to bailout packages for stricken eurozone partners.
