August 12, 2015 by legitgov

Dozens of retired generals, admirals back Iran nuclear deal | 11 Aug 2015 |Three dozen retired generals and admirals released an open letter Tuesday supporting the Iran nuclear deal and urging Congress to do the same. Calling the agreement "the most effective means currently available to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons," the letter said that gaining international support for military action against Iran, should that ever become necessary, "would only be possible if we have first given the diplomatic path a chance." The release came as Secretary of State John F. Kerry said U.S. allies were "going to look at us and laugh" if the United States were to abandon the deal and then ask them to back a more aggressive posture against Iran.

No-fly list uses 'predictive assessments' instead of hard evidence, US admits

August 11, 2015 by legitgov

No-fly list uses 'predictive assessments' instead of hard evidence, US admits | 10 Aug 2015 | The Obama administration's no-fly lists and broader watchlisting system is based on predicting crimes rather than relying on records of demonstrated offenses, the government has been forced to admit in court. In a little-noticed filing before an Oregon federal judge, the US Justice Department and the FBI conceded that stopping US and other citizens from travelling on airplanes is a matter of "predictive assessments about potential threats", the government asserted in May. "By its very nature, identifying individuals who 'may be a threat to civil aviation or national security' is a predictive judgment intended to prevent future acts of terrorism in an uncertain context," Justice Department officials Benjamin C Mizer and Anthony J Coppolino told the court on 28 May...It is believed to be the government's most direct acknowledgement to date that people are not allowed to fly because of what the government believes they might do and not what they have already done.

August 11, 2015 by legitgov

In Ferguson, protesters challenge state of emergency | 11 Aug 2015 | Police bolstered by emergency orders maintained close watch Tuesday over protest-wracked streets in Ferguson after another night of demonstrations that left more than two dozen people in custody and brought new potential flash points. The latest wave of unrest -- set in motion after violence erupted during marches marking the anniversary of the shooting of an unarmed black man -- has reopened the deep racial tensions in Ferguson and brought scenes reminiscent of the riots that gripped the St. Louis suburb last year after the death of Michael Brown. Protesters chanted to the beat of drums in marches along West Florissant Avenue -- the epicenter of last year’s clashes -- in a show of solidarity that spilled into early Tuesday.

US ex-intelligence chief on ISIS rise: It was 'a willful Washington decision'

US ex-intelligence chief on ISIS rise: It was 'a willful Washington decision' | 11 Aug 2015 | The US didn't interfere with the rise of anti-government jihadist groups in Syria that finally degenerated into Islamic State, claims the former head of America's Defense Intelligence Agency, backing a secret 2012 memo predicting their rise. An interview with retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), given to Al Jazeera, confirms earlier suspicions that Washington was monitoring jihadist groups emerging as opposition in Syria...The classified DIA report presented in August 2012, stated that "the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI [Al- Qaeda in Iraq] are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria," being supported by "the West, Gulf countries and Turkey."

Pentagon under fire for guidelines that liken war reporters to 'belligerents'

August 11, 2015 by legitgov

Pentagon under fire for guidelines that liken war reporters to 'belligerents' | 10 Aug 2015 | Defenders of press freedom have accused the Pentagon of endangering journalists with new legal guidelines that liken war correspondents to spies and say they can be treated as "unprivileged belligerents" in some circumstances. The details were buried in the Department of Defence's 1176-page Law of War Manual, which was published in June. The manual says journalists, in general, are civilians. However, it adds that in some circumstances they might be considered "unprivileged belligerents" - the same broad category that includes guerrillas or members of al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh]...It also sets out conditions under which journalists' work will be censored.

Protester who chased Bernie Sanders from stage is Christian conservative and Sarah Palin supporter

August 10, 2015 by legitgov

Ah, then came the dawn. Protester who chased Bernie Sanders from stage is a Christian conservative and Sarah Palin supporter | 09 Aug 2015 | Bernie Sanders was physically chased from the stage by a group of Seattle protesters who claimed to be representing the Black Lives Matter movement, which has raised questions as to whether Sanders and his campaign have kept their economic message too narrow, possibly alienating a portion of the Democratic party base. But a subsequent detail suggests that the incident may have been fueled by something else entirely. The leader of the group is actually a Sarah Palin supporter. Instead the leader of the group who took the stage, Marissa Jenae Johnson, has stated as recently as three weeks ago that she had been campaigning for Sarah Palin in 2008. And further research from the website Patheos suggests that Johnson is a christian fundamentalist. If she is indeed a christian conservative, then it suggests that she and her partners may have been sabotaging the Bernie Sanders event not because they want the Democratic party to focus more on racial issues, but instead because they are Republicans want to make Sanders 'look bad.'

Japan to restart first nuclear reactor during ongoing Fukushima disaster

August 10, 2015 by legitgov

Japan to restart first nuclear reactor since during ongoing Fukushima disaster | 10 Aug 2015 | Japan will on Tuesday begin restarting its nuclear power programme, officials said, after a two-year shutdown sparked by public fears following the Fukushima crisis. The restart comes more than four years after a quake-sparked tsunami triggered meltdowns at the Fukushima plant, prompting the shutdown of Japan's stable of reactors in the world's worst atomic crisis in a generation...But Japan's people are sceptical and the country remains deeply scarred by Fukushima, which forced tens of thousands of people from their homes - many of whom will likely never return. On Monday about 400 protesters rallied in front of the Sendai plant, which is on the southern tip of Japan's Kyushu island. [Notice that the US corporate-owned media 'forgot' to mention this protest and runs a *complete* blackout on any news regarding Fukushima?]

No to GMO: Scotland to outlaw growing of GM crops | 09 Aug 2015 | Scotland says it will ban genetically modified crops on its soil. According to officials, the move will protect the environment. They are also taking advantage of new EU laws, allowing member states to decide whether they want to grow the crops or not. Although the EU imports large quantities of GM crops from abroad, it is less sure about growing them on their own soil. Some environmental groups are worried about the impact they could have on the countryside, while there are also concerns over health issues for humans, despite producers of the crops insisting they are safe.

August 8, 2015 by legitgov

Aurora Movie Theater Shooter James Holmes to Be Sentenced to Life in Prison | 07 Aug 2015 | Aurora movie theater gunman [MKULTRA patsy] James Holmes will be sentenced to life in prison after a Colorado jury on Friday failed to unanimously agree to sentence him to death for killing 12 people more than three years ago. The nine-woman, three-man jury returned after less than seven hours of deliberations with the understanding that their lack of a decision would mean Holmes would not be sentenced to death but rather, life in prison without the possibility of parole. The same jury rejected an insanity defense in July and found Holmes guilty of 24 counts of murder -- two for each person he killed on July 20, 2012.
