Gary McKinnon saved from extradition to US on hacking charges 16 Oct 2012 Gary McKinnon, the computer hacker who has been facing extradition to the US for the past decade, has been given a dramatic reprieve by the Home Secretary.

She also announced plans to change extradition rules to allow courts to block extradition attempts if it is in the interests of justice.

Drones, forces set for possible Libya strike - AP

October 16, 2012 by legitgov

Drones, forces set for possible Libya strike - AP 15 Oct 2012 Armed drones are flying over northern Africa and U.S. special forces are on call, ready to attack if the Obama administration can identify who was behind the deadly Sept. 11 assault on the American Consulate in Libya, officials tell the Associated Press. AP writes that the White House "is weighing whether the short-term payoff of exacting retribution on al-Qaeda is worth the risk that such strikes could elevate the group's profile in the region, alienate governments the U.S. needs to fight it in the future and do little to slow the growing terror threat in North Africa." AP bases its report on three current officials, a former Obama administration official and an outside analyst who said administration officials "have approached him asking for help in connecting the dots to Mali," where al-Qaeda[al-CIAduh]-linked rebels seized the northern half of the country in spring.

Global warming is 'causing more hurricanes'

Global warming is 'causing more hurricanes' --Scientists use tidal data to link frequency and intensity of storms to rises in temperature 16 Oct 2012 Scientists have found support for the controversial idea that global warming is causing more frequent and destructive hurricanes, a subject that has been hotly debated during the past decade. Data gathered from tide gauges, which monitor the rapid changes to sea levels caused by storm surges, show a significant link between both the frequency and intensity of tropical storms and increases in annual temperatures since the tidal records began in 1923. The study found that during the 90-year period, when the average global temperature has increased by 0.7C, extreme hurricanes similar to Katrina were nearly twice as likely in warmer years as colder years.

Computer hacker Gary McKinnon to find out extradition fate

October 16, 2012 by legitgov

Computer hacker Gary McKinnon to find out extradition fate 16 Oct 2012 Computer hacker Gary McKinnon will find out today whether Home Secretary Theresa May will end his 10-year battle against extradition to the United States. The ups and downs of his fight have been so cruel they amount to "waterboarding of the mind", his mother Janis Sharp said. But she is hopeful that Mrs May will end her son's suffering by blocking his extradition to the US, where he is accused of "the biggest military computer hack of all time". McKinnon, who suffers from Asperger's syndrome - a high-functioning form of autism - admits hacking into US military computers but claims he was looking for evidence of UFOs.

When Ryan did talk to some men who appeared to be homeless, as he did when he left the venue, reporters were not allowed to listen in on the exchange.

October 16, 2012 by legitgov

Romney's Unraveling Claim That Six Studies Validate His Tax Plan 15 Oct 2012 In response to the persistent and substantial questions about the math of his tax plan not adding up, Mitt Romney and his campaign frequently argue that six independent studies back him up by ratifying the arithmetic of the centerpiece of his domestic agenda. But the talking point about the talking point is unraveling. Of the six studies, two are blog posts by the conservative American Enterprise Institute; one is a report by the Republican-friendly Heritage Foundation; one is a paper by Princeton professor and former George W. Bush adviser Harvey Rosen; the fifth and sixth are a Wall Street Journal op-ed and blog post by Harvard economist Martin Feldstein, an adviser to the Romney campaign.

October 16, 2012 by legitgov

Koch Brothers to Workers: Vote for Romney or 'Suffer the Consequences' 15 Oct 2012 As a contentious election season enters its final weeks, a flurry of communication from corporate leaders to rank-and-file workers strongly implies that voting for President Barack Obama could imperil their jobs and their financial stability. Employees of a paper company owned by the outspoken billionaire Koch[-sucker] brothers terrorists received a mailing warning that they could "suffer the consequences, including higher gasoline prices, runaway inflation, and other ills" if they voted for candidates not supported by Koch-owned companies or its political fund-raising arm. The company also provided workers with a list of those candidates it supports. At the top: Mitt Romney, according to media outlet In These Times, which broke the story.

Japan utility agrees nuclear crisis was avoidable

October 15, 2012 by legitgov

USociopaths, TEPCO terrorists want to restart another deadly nuclear power plant, ergo: Japan utility agrees nuclear crisis was avoidable 12 Oct 2012 The utility behind Japan's acknowledged for the first time Friday that it could have avoided the crisis. Tokyo Electric Power Co. said in a statement that it had known safety improvements were needed before last year's events which triggered three meltdowns, but it had feared the political, economic and legal consequences of implementing them. The statement was released after TEPCO held its first internal reform committee meeting, led by former U.S. nuclear regulatory chief Dale Klein. His five-member committee oversees the task force's reform plans. The reform plans aim to use the lessons learned at TEPCO's Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant in northern Japan. The cash-strapped utility wants to restart that plant, but TEPCO officials denied the reform plans are aimed at improving public image to gain support for the plant's resumption.

Deepwater Horizon pipe 'responsible for new oil slick in Gulf of Mexico' --BP and Transocean to submit clean-up operation, after scientists link three-mile oil slick to Deepwater Horizon disaster 12 Oct 2012 Government scientists have definitively linked a new oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico to the BP oil spill disaster of 2010. A senior government scientist said the most likely source of the new oil is the mile-long length of pipe from the Deepwater Horizon rig, now lying in a crumpled loop on the ocean floor. At worst, he said, the pipe was thought to contain some 1,800 barrels of oil - a minuscule amount compared with the 4.9m barrels that gushed into the ocean from BP's well during the[ir] 2010 oil disaster.

Report: CIA Arranged Bride for Terrorist in Plot to Kill Him

October 15, 2012 by legitgov

Report: CIA Arranged Bride for Terrorist in Plot to Kill Him 15 Oct 2012 The CIA paid an 'al Qaeda' spy $250,000 to help find a bride for American-born [alleged] terrorist Anwar al Awlaki in a plot to locate and kill him, according to a report in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. In the case of the terrorist bride, the purported CIA double agent, Morten Storm, a Danish convert to Islam, provided the newspaper with "proposal" videos and e-mail texts he says al Awlaki exchanged with the woman, a 32-year old Croatian named Aminah who said she was an admirer of al Awlaki. The report says the plot failed when the woman reached Yemen but was told by al Awlaki's aides to abandon her suitcase which had been bugged with tracking devices by the CIA without her knowledge. Storm told the newspaper, "both of them would be killed in an American drone strike" if the CIA plan had succeeded.

Millions of unexploded bombs lie in waters off US coast, researchers say

October 14, 2012 by legitgov

Millions of unexploded bombs lie in waters off US coast, researchers say 08 Oct 2012 Lurking (and leaking) beneath the world's oceans are an estimated 200 million pounds of unexploded and potentially dangerous explosives -- from bombs to missiles to mustard gas. Texas A&M oceanographers William Bryant and Niall Slowey documented two such dumpsites in the Gulf of Mexico recently. They conservatively guess that at least 31 million pounds of bombs can be found not just in the Gulf, but also off the coasts of at least 16 states, from New Jersey to Hawaii. Thousands of gallon containers of mustard gas lie strewn off the New Jersey coast, for example. And there is a total of seven dumpsites on the Gulf seafloor, each approximately 81 square miles, one at the mouth of the Mississippi River Delta.

The biggest source of money Kavanaugh was accused of tapping was donations made for Operation Freedom, an annual picnic and veterans event at the zoo that Gov.

Task Force Tells DHS to Offer 'Cool' Cybersecurity Jobs to Gov. Workers and Test Them Like Pilots 12 Oct 2012 In order to attract the highly skilled and qualified cybersecurity workers the Department of Homeland Security... DHS has to reserve its coolest cybersecurity jobs for federal workers, not contractors, according to a task-force report submitted to DHS this month. This means, in part, hiring at least 600 new cybersecurity professionals, including ones who have proven, hands-on experience to take on critical tasks, the task force recommended in its 41-page report. Furthermore, the government needs to focus less on professional certifications in making its hiring decisions and more on real-world experience and expertise.

Polar bears will go extinct within decades, Russian expert predicts

Polar bears will go extinct within decades, Russian expert predicts --Melting polar sea ice limits habitat and food sources, increases vulnerability 12 Oct 2012 One immediate consequence has been further grief and peril for Russia's already seriously distressed polar bear population. "It is worse for Russian polar bears than the bears in Canada or Greenland because the pack ice is retreating much faster in our waters," said Nikita Ovsyannikov, deputy director of Russia's polar bear reserve on Wrangel Island in the Chukchi Sea to the northwest of Alaska. "The best habitat is quickly disappearing. It is extreme. "What we are seeing right now is very late freezing. Our polar bear population is obviously declining. It used to be that new ice was thick enough for them to walk on in late October. It now will happen much later."
