Inside the FBI's secret relationship with US elite assassination team, JSOC

April 11, 2014 by legitgov

Inside the FBI's secret relationship with US elite assassination team, JSOC --FBI agents were regularly involved in shootings, sometimes fighting side by side with the military - James Davis, the FBI's legal attache 10 Apr 2014 ...FBI officials have become more willing to discuss a little-known alliance between the bureau and the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) that allowed agents to participate in hundreds of raids in Iraq and Afghanistan. The FBI's presence on the far edge of military operations was not universally embraced, according to current and former officials familiar with the bureau's role. As agents found themselves in firefights, some in the bureau expressed uneasiness about a domestic law enforcement agency stationing its personnel on battlefields.

White House denies visa to Iran's pick for UN ambassador

April 11, 2014 by legitgov

White House denies visa to Iran's pick for UN ambassador 11 Apr 2014 The Iranian diplomat picked to be the Islamic republic’s ambassador to the United Nations will not be allowed to enter the United States where the UN is headquartered, Reuters has reported. White House press secretary Jay Carney confirmed to the newswire on Friday afternoon that Hamid Aboutalebi -- Iran's recent pick as envoy to the UN -- will not be granted an American visa, effectively barring him from beginning his ambassadorship. "The US Senate action to bar Aboutalebi's entry as Iran's designated ambassador at the UN is sheer interference in the internal affairs of the UN," Mohammad Hassan Asafari, a member of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said earlier in the week. "The Americans are not entitled to the right to oppose the entry of the Islamic Republic of Iran's representative at the UN and the US Senate approval is illegal." [*Illegal.* Exactly, but for some reason, that never stops USociopaths.]

NATO's 'Russian troop build-up' satellite images show 2013 drills

April 11, 2014 by legitgov

NATO's 'Russian troop build-up' satellite images show 2013 drills 10 Apr 2014 The satellite images released by NATO that allegedly show a current build-up of Russian troops near Ukrainian border were taken in August 2013 amid military drills, a source in the General Staff of the Russian Army has said. NATO's top military commander in Europe, General Philip Breedlove, on Wednesday claimed that there is evidence of what he says are 40,000 Russian troops on the border with Ukraine, tweeting a link to satellite images. There is one problem, though: the images were taken some eight months before the stated date, the source said. "These shots, which were distributed by NATO, show Russian Armed Forces units of the Southern Military District, which in the summer of last year were taking part in various drills, including near the Ukrainian border," the General Staff official told RIA Novosti.

Social Security, Treasury target taxpayers for their parents' decades-old debts

April 11, 2014 by legitgov

Social Security, Treasury target taxpayers for their parents' decades-old debts 10 Apr 2014 A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice's tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government -- a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them. Now, Social Security claims it overpaid someone in the Grice family -- it's not sure who -- in 1977. After 37 years of silence, four years after Sadie Grice died, the government is coming after her daughter.

MH370: 'Confidence' Over Black Box Search 11 Apr 2014 Searchers are "very confident" that signals detected in the hunt for missing flight MH370 are from the plane's black box, Australia's prime minister says. Tony Abbott told reporters during a visit to China that authorities have "very much narrowed down the search area" in the southern Indian Ocean. "We are very confident that the signals that we are detecting are from the black box," Mr Abbott said.

Angela Merkel denied access to her NSA file

April 11, 2014 by legitgov

Angela Merkel denied access to her NSA file 10 Apr 2014 The US government is refusing to grant Angela Merkel access to her NSA file or answer formal questions from Germany about its surveillance activities, raising the stakes before a crucial visit by the German chancellor to Washington. Merkel will meet Barack Obama in three weeks, on her first visit to the US capital since documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA had been monitoring her phone. The face-to-face meeting between the two world leaders had been intended as an effort to publicly heal wounds after the controversy, but Germany remains frustrated by the White House's refusal to come clean about its surveillance activities in the country.

Obama accepted the resignation this week and intends to announce that he will nominate Office of Management and Budget Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell to replace Sebelius.

British gave 'full co-operation' for CIA black jail on Diego Garcia, report claims

April 11, 2014 by legitgov

British gave 'full co-operation' for CIA black jail on Diego Garcia, report claims --Fresh claims emerge of high-level British government involvement in the programme 10 Apr 2014 The British government allowed the CIA to run a "black" jail for Al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] suspects on the Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia, it was claimed last night. The report, based on leaked accounts of a US Senate investigation into the CIA's kidnap and torture programme after 9/11, contradicts years of British government denials that it allowed the US to use Diego Garcia for its "extraordinary rendition" programme. The alleged Diego Garcia black site was used to hold some "high-value" detainees and was made with the "full co-operation" of the British government, according to Al Jazeera America, quoting US officials familiar with the Senate report.

U.S. explosives litter Afghan land, killing and maiming a rising number of Afghan children

April 11, 2014 by legitgov

U.S. explosives litter Afghan land, killing and maiming a rising number of Afghan children 10 Apr 2014 As the U.S. military withdraws from Afghanistan, it is leaving behind a deadly legacy: about 800 square miles of land littered with undetonated grenades, rockets and mortar shells. The military has vacated scores of firing ranges pocked with the explosives. Dozens of children have been killed or wounded as they have stumbled upon the ordnance at the sites, which are often poorly marked. Casualties are likely to increase sharply; the U.S. military has removed the munitions from only 3 percent of the territory covered by its sprawling ranges, officials said. Clearing the rest of the contaminated land -- which in total is twice as big as New York City -- could take two to five years. [They don't 'hate us for our freedoms.' They hate us because we're sociopaths.]

Shoe thrown at Hillary Clinton at Vegas speech

April 10, 2014 by legitgov

Shoe thrown at Hillary Clinton at Vegas speech 10 Apr 2014 Hillary Rodham Clinton was ready with a quip after a woman threw a shoe at her as she took the stage for a Las Vegas speech. Security at the Mandalay Bay casino resort ushered out the woman, who said she threw a shoe at the former secretary of State. Authorities indicated the woman would be arrested. The Clinton incident evokes a 2008 event in which an Iraqi journalist threw shoes at President [sic] George W. Bush in Baghdad.

Governments wasting billions of dollars stockpiling flu drug Tamiflu

April 10, 2014 by legitgov

Governments wasting billions of dollars stockpiling flu drug Tamiflu --Medicines had few if any beneficial effects, but did have adverse side effects previously dismissed or overlooked 10 Apr 2014 Researchers who have fought for years to get full data on Roche's flu medicine Tamiflu said on Thursday that governments who stockpile it are wasting billions of dollars on a drug whose effectiveness is in doubt. In a review of trial data on Tamiflu, and on GlaxoSmithKline's flu drug Relenza, scientists from the respected research network the Cochrane Review said that...there is no good evidence behind claims they cut hospital admissions or lessen complications of the disease. "There is no credible way these drugs could prevent a pandemic," said Carl Heneghan, one of the lead investigators of the review and a professor of evidence-based medicine at Britain's Oxford University. [Want to know why the US government stockpiles that garbage in the first place? See: Rumsfeld's growing stake in Tamiflu --Defense Secretary, ex-chairman of flu treatment rights holder, sees portfolio value growing. 31 Oct 2005 The prospect of a bird flu outbreak is proving to be very good news for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other politically connected investors in Gilead Sciences, the California biotech company that owns the rights to Tamiflu, the influenza remedy that's now the most-sought after drug in the world. Rumsfeld served as Gilead's chairman from 1997 until he joined the Bush regime in 2001, and he still holds a Gilead stake valued at between $5 million and $25 million, according to federal financial disclosures filed by Rumsfeld. The forms don't reveal the exact number of shares Rumsfeld owns, but in the past six months fears of a pandemic and the ensuing scramble for Tamiflu have sent Gilead's stock from $35 to $47.]

'Range war' with BLM: Hundreds rally for Nevada cattle rancher

April 10, 2014 by legitgov

'Range war' with BLM: Hundreds rally for Nevada cattle rancher 07 Apr 2014 Wielding signs and slogans, several hundred demonstrators rallied Monday to support beleaguered Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy after authorities began to seize his cattle from federal land.  Protesters had responded to an alert that promised: "Range war begins at the Bundy ranch at 9:30 a.m. We're going to get the job done!" Federal officials say Bundy is illegally running cattle in the 600,000-acre Gold Butte area, habitat of the federally protected desert tortoise. A federal judge ruled last year that if Bundy did not remove his cattle, they could be seized by the Bureau of Land Management. That seizure began Saturday.

NORAD Exercises: Fighter Jets Train Over Central Iowa 09 Apr 2014 Residents between Fort Dodge and Waterloo may have noticed some low flying jets Wednesday afternoon. The flights, which involved fighter jets in close proximity to a military-controlled civilian plane, are part of the North American Aerospace Defense Command training exercises. NORAD conduct exercises so they are able to respond to airspace restriction violations, hijackings and unknown aircraft. [Yeah, except on 9/11, when Dick Cheney ordered NORAD to stand down, so the attacks could proceed as planned.]

NJ judge rules against bridge scandal panel in subpoena fight

NJ judge rules against bridge scandal panel in subpoena fight 09 Apr 2014 Two figures central to the state Legislature's investigation of the George Washington Bridge lane closings do not have to turn over records related to the scandal, a state judge ruled today, handing Democrats leading the inquiry a major defeat. In a thorough dissection of the arguments made by the committee leading the investigation, state Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson found no basis to force Bridget Anne Kelly, Gov. Chris Christie's former deputy chief of staff, and Bill Stepien, his two-time campaign manager, to comply with its subpoenas. The pair objected to the requests, issued in January, because they argued identifying and turning over records would violate their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.

Judge criticizes State Department over Blackwater shooting case

April 10, 2014 by legitgov

Judge criticizes State Department over Blackwater shooting case 08 Apr 2014 A federal judge on Tuesday harshly criticized the U.S. State Department over its 'handling' of a 2007 shooting in Baghdad involving Blackwater Worldwide security guards and asked the agency's watchdog to investigate problems that helped delay a related criminal case. The prosecution of the former guards, who were charged with manslaughter in the killing of 14 unarmed civilians, has dragged on for years amid problems with evidence. "If the Department of State and Diplomatic Security Service had tried deliberately to sabotage this prosecution, they could hardly have done a better job," U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth, who is overseeing the criminal case against the former guards, said in an opinion dated March 26 but made public on Tuesday.

Obama Signs Measures to Help Close Gender Gap in Pay 09 Apr 2014 President Obama on Tuesday signed two executive measures intended to help close longstanding pay disparities between men and women as Democrats seek to capitalize on their gender-gap advantage at the ballot box in a midterm election year. Mr. Obama, standing in front of a platform of women in a picture-ready ceremony in the East Room of the White House, said his actions would make it easier for women to learn whether they had been cheated by employers. He called on Congress to pass legislation that would take more significant steps.

US sailors sue for $1B over Fukushima radiation 07 Apr 2014 Nearly 80 U.S. sailors are seeking $1 billion from the Tokyo utility that operates the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, alleging the company lied about the high level of radiation in the area where they were carrying out a humanitarian mission after a nuclear crisis three years ago. A lawsuit filed in federal court in San Diego contends that Tokyo Electric Power repeatedly said there was no danger to the crew when they were actually being blanketed with radiation that has since led to dozens of cancer cases and a child being born with birth defects, the Orange County Register reported Monday.

Venezuela protests are sign that US wants our oil, says Nicolas Maduro

Venezuela protests are sign that US wants our oil, says Nicolás Maduro --Venezuela estimated to have world's largest oil reserves [When the US found out Venezuela was awash in oil, it was like letting a vampire loose in a blood bank.] 08 Apr 2014 Venezuela's president has accused the US of using continuing street protests to attempt a "slow-motion" Ukraine-style coup against his government and "get their hands on Venezuelan oil". In an exclusive interview with the Guardian, Nicolás Maduro, elected last year after the death of Hugo Chávez, said what he described as a "revolt of the rich" would fail because the country's "Bolivarian revolution" was more deeply rooted than when it had seen off an abortive US-backed coup against Chávez in 2002.

Second US Navy destroyer heads to Black Sea 09 Apr 2014 Another US military ship is set to be deployed in the Black Sea amid the Ukrainian crisis. The US Navy destroyer Donald Cook will join the USS Truxtun, whose stay in waters bordering Russia was extended to 'conduct drills' with Romania and Bulgaria. "We'll also send another ship to the Black Sea within a week," Derek Chollet, the US Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, told the House Armed Services Committee. He said the Department of Defense sanctioned to prolong USS Truxtun's stay in the Black Sea "to conduct exercises with Romanian and Bulgarian naval forces," after it left the region on March 21. [Ah, yes. The drills. Let's hope the dirt-bags don't 'go live,' as they did on 9/11 and on *so many other* occasions.]

In addition to aiding the FBI/NYPD task force, which was known as the "Genovese squad," Sharpton's cooperation extended to several other investigative agencies.

Judge again rejects feds over email search

April 9, 2014 by legitgov

Judge again rejects feds over email search 07 Apr 2014 A federal magistrate who has refused or modified a slew of search warrants for email records in recent months out of concerns that they were overly broad has shot down a Justice Department proposal which appeared intended to allay his worries. Magistrate Judge John Facciola of U.S. District Court in Washington said in a ruling issued Monday that prosecutors' proposal to seal information deemed beyond the scope of the warrant was inadequate to resolve the constitutional violation caused by seizing the contents of an entire email account. "The government is unwilling--for whatever reason--to give up its policy of seizing large quantities of e-mails and other Fourth Amendment protected data even after this Court has repeatedly warned it against doing so," Facciola wrote Monday in a ruling rejecting prosecutors' request to seize data from an e-mail account. "Mere convenience does not allow the government to violate the Fourth Amendment and seize data wholesale."
