Another day, another US war crime: US soldier opens fire on Afghan civilians 11 Mar 2012 A U.S. soldier went on a shooting rampage outside Kandahar city early Sunday, causing an unknown number of deaths and injuries, Afghan officials and the Western military said. The incident seemed certain to harden anti-American sentiment that flared into deadly riots last month after U.S. troops burned copies of the Koran at a base north of Kabul. The shooting early Sunday took place in Panjwayi district outside Kandahar city. The NATO force issued a terse statement saying the shooter was in custody and the incident would be 'investigated' by the U.S. military and Afghan authorities.

Baby Squirrel Gets Tiny Purple Cast After Falling Out of Nest 08 Mar 2012 A little grey squirrel, dubbed "Violet," who fell from her nest last week has been outfitted with a cast that fits just right. According to the Solent News & Photo Agency, Violet fell to ground when a couple unknowingly trimmed the tree branch that was holding her nest. Spotting the baby and realizing she was now separated from her mother, the couple called up animal rescue workers at the Wildlife Aid Foundation, who bandaged the squirrel with a small cast that was - you guessed it - violet.

The rocket attack on the heavily fortified site, located in Afghanistan's Parwan province, took place at around 8 p.m. local time (1530 GMT) on Saturday.

UN rights rapporteur is US agent: Iran MP

March 11, 2012 by legitgov

UN rights rapporteur is US agent: Iran MP 10 Mar 2012 A senior lawmaker [Alaeddin Boroujerdi, who heads the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee] says Americans are the true assassins of Iranian nuclear scientists and UN Rights Rapporteur Ahmed Shaheed’s anti-Iran claims are a forward retreat aimed at covering up US crimes. A total of six Iranian scientists related to the country's nuclear energy program have been killed by the Israeli agents since January 2010. In the latest instance, Mostafa Ahmadi Moqaddam, deputy head of Natanz nuclear facility, was killed when a motorist stuck a bomb to his car in Tehran on January 11. Pointing to recent remarks by US Attorney General Eric Holder who defended the US government assassinating overseas American citizens suspected of involvement in terrorist activities against the United States, Boroujerdi said US officials who openly defend the assassination of American citizens, accuse Iran of supporting terrorism.

Japanese leaders silent on meltdown

March 10, 2012 by legitgov

Japanese leaders silent on meltdown 11 Mar 2012 Just four hours after a tsunami swept into the Fukushima nuclear power plant a year ago, Japan's leaders knew the damage was so severe that the reactors could melt down, but they kept their knowledge secret for months. Five days into the crisis, then-Prime Minister Naoto Kan voiced his fears that it could turn worse than Chernobyl, newly released documents show. The minutes of the government's crisis management meetings from the day the earthquake and tsunami struck until late December were not recorded and had to be reconstructed retroactively. The minutes quoted an unidentified official explaining that cooling functions of the reactors were kept running only by batteries that would last just eight hours.

Anonymous Hackers Replace Police Supplier Website With 'Tribute to Jeremy Hammond'

March 10, 2012 by legitgov

Anonymous Hackers Replace Police Supplier Website With 'Tribute to Jeremy Hammond' 09 Mar 2012 Anonymous hacktivists announced via Twitter that they had successfully hacked the website of New York Iron Works, a police-equipment supplier, and replaced the homepage with a tribute of love to arrested hacker and Chicagoan Jeremy Hammond. Anonymous also claimed responsibility for several other hacks on March 8, including knocking Peruvian government website offline, and posting the personal information of FBI agents in a public online message board in what they called "Operation Piggy Bank." The website for New York Iron Works is currently offline, but the homepage was used this morning by Anonymous to display their own message as well as a YouTube video showing the final minutes of cult-film "Fight Club," in which a group of American terrorists led by a schizophrenic protagonist played by Edward Norton/Brad Pitt blow up the headquarters of several banks. Anonymous also posted what appeared to be hundreds of usernames and passwords, suggesting that the hackers had not only taken control of the homepage, but accessed the website's servers. [Altogether, sounds like a productive #FFF!]

March 10, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. senator calls for naval blockade of Iran 10 Mar 2012 An international naval blockade of Iranian oil exports should be considered before any resort to air strikes against the country's disputed nuclear program, the chairman of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee said on Friday. "That's, I think, one option that needs to be considered" to boost pressure on Iran to curb its nuclear program in line with UN Security Council resolutions, DemocRATic Senator Carl Levin said in an interview taped for C-SPAN's "Newsmakers" program. Levin was responding to a question about possible ways of increasing pressure short of combat, including imposition of a "no-fly zone" over Iran.

Army Suicides Up 80 Percent Since Iraq War Start 08 Mar 2012 The number of suicides in the U.S. Army rose by 80 percent after the United States launched the war on Iraq, American military doctors reported on Thursday.

But it started to curve upwards in 2004, the year after the U.S.-led invasion, according to their analysis, published in the British journal Injury Prevention.

The Strategic Partnership Agreement, which Washington and Kabul have been discussing for over a year, will be the framework for U.S. involvement in Afghanistan beyond 2014, when the last foreign combat troops are due to leave Afghanistan.

Netanyahu: Strike on Iran's nuclear facilities possible within months 09 Mar 2012 An attack on Iran could take place within a matter of months, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a series of television interviews on Thursday. "We're not standing with a stopwatch in hand," he said. "It's not a matter of days or weeks, but also not of years. The result must be removal of the threat of nuclear weapons in Iran's hands." Netanyahu gave separate interviews to all three Israeli television stations, the first he has given since his return from Washington earlier this week.

Israel asks U.S. for arms that could aid Iran strike 08 Mar 2012 Israel has asked the United States for advanced "bunker-buster" bombs and refueling planes that could improve its ability to attack Iran's underground nuclear sites, an Israeli official said on Thursday. "Such a request was made" around the time of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington this week, the official said, confirming media reports. But the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity given the sensitivity of the issue, played down as "unrealistic" Israeli reports that the United States would condition supplying the hardware on Israel promising not to attack Iran this year.

New strain of flu found in bats

New strain of flu found in bats --'And even though they don't have all the answers yet, infectious disease experts say just knowing this strain exists is giving them a head start at creating a vaccine.' 06 Mar 2012 The blockbuster movie "Contagion" showed just how easy it is for an emerging disease to spread across the world. Now, some say the cause of that fictional flu is at least one step closer to reality. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is tracking creating something new. It's not the bird flu. Not swine flu. But rather, the bat flu. Researchers in Guatemala 'found' a new strain of influenza in bats and are now watching to see how and if it can transmit to humans. Bats are known to carry emerging diseases.

LulzSec's Sabu: 'ask me about the CIA'

March 9, 2012 by legitgov

LulzSec's Sabu: 'ask me about the CIA' --When the Guardian spoke to the hacker last year, he was keen to discuss claims he worked for the authorities By James Ball 07 Mar 2012 [Sabu] asked me to join him in an off-the-record internet chat – a conversation that happened seven weeks after Sabu, now unmasked as Hector Xavier Monsegur, had already been picked up by the FBI. Given the latest revelations about Sabu's activities, that he worked as an informer from after his arrest on 7 June until just a few days ago, I think it is appropriate to publish a few extracts from our conversation. Sabu – and we cannot even be sure that our correspondent was the real Monsegur and not a US agent – was not representing himself accurately to the newspaper. If anything, he was testing the Guardian out, openly flirting with the notion that he worked for the CIA – and then inviting me to knock him down.

Senate rejects GOP measure to build oil pipeline 08 Mar 2012 The Senate narrowly rejected a Republican-sponsored measure Thursday that would have bypassed the Obama administration's current objections to the Keystone XL pipeline and allowed construction on the controversial project to move forward immediately.

Panetta: U.S. Has Potential Military Plans for Iran 08 Mar 2012 The Pentagon is preparing an array of military options for striking Iran if hard-hitting diplomatic and economic sanctions fail to persuade Tehran to drop its nuclear ambitions, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told National Journal in an interview on Thursday. Panetta said such planning had been under way "for a long time," a reflection of the Obama administration's mounting concern over Iran's [alleged] continued progress towards a nuclear weapon. Panetta said in the interview that a unilateral Israeli strike against Iran would be less effective than one conducted by the U.S., which has a significantly larger air force and an array of advanced weapons more powerful than any possessed by Israel.

Elite hacker arrested in NY cooperated from Day 1 08 Mar 2012 In his Twitter postings, the elite computer hacker known as "Sabu" urged followers to resist the U.S. government and its agents. But court papers made public Thursday reveal that Hector Xavier Monsegur put up no such fight when FBI agents first knocked on his door on June 7. From almost that first moment, he began talking, naming names and helping investigators pick apart the international community of Internet saboteurs [heroes]. He was arrested at 10:15 p.m. By the next day, federal prosecutors had told a judge that Monsegur had given them detailed information on other hackers suspected of breaking into the computer systems at several big corporations.

FBI director: Have to check whether targeted killing rule is outside US only  --'Uh, I'm not certain whether that was addressed or not.' 07 Mar 2012 FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder's "three criteria" for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S. Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency's budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S. "I have to go back. Uh, I'm not certain whether that was addressed or not," Mueller said when asked by Rep. Kevin Yoder, R-Kan., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting.
