Manning was kept on either suicide watch or injury-prevention status for months.

December 12, 2012 by legitgov

North Korea says it successfully launched satellite into orbit 11 Dec 2012 North Korea fired a long-range rocket Wednesday morning in its second launch under its new leader, defying warnings [!?!] from the U.N. and Washington only days before South Korean presidential elections. North Korea declared the launch of a rocket and satellite a success, and state television broadcasted a brief report declaring as much on Wednesday. South Korean and Japanese officials confirmed that liftoff took place Wednesday morning, while the United States did not immediately comment on it. [Gee, who died and made the US boss of the universe? The US launches missiles, satellites, weapons (and drones) 24/7, so who is the US to comment? For example, see: U.S. military top secret spaceplane blasts off for mystery mission 11 Dec 2012. And, speaking of 'warnings:' Israel has been 'warned' by the U.N. not to expand settlements in the West Bank, but they build 24/7, so someone should tell the US (and Israel) to shut their hypocritical pie holes. --LRP]

HSBC pays record $1.9bn fine to settle US money-laundering accusations

December 12, 2012 by legitgov

Al-CIAduh's HSBC paymaster busted--but no jail time, of course: HSBC pays record $1.9bn fine to settle US money-laundering accusations 11 Dec 2012 HSBC was guilty of a "blatant failure" to implement anti-money laundering controls and wilfully flouted US sanctions, American prosecutors said, as the bank was forced to pay a record $1.9bn (£1.2bn) to settle allegations it allowed terrorists to move money around the financial system. At least $881m in drug trafficking money was laundered throughout the bank's accounts. The US Senate said the bank had operated a "pervasively polluted" culture that lasted for years, allowing HSBC to move billions around the financial system for Mexican drug lords, terrorists and governments on sanctions lists. HSBC's Mexican operations moved $7bn into the US operations, for instance, which the Senate was told was tied to drug money.

U.S. military top secret spaceplane blasts off for mystery mission 11 Dec 2012 The military's small, top-secret version of the space shuttle rocketed into orbit Tuesday for a repeat mystery mission, two years after making the first flight of its kind. The Air Force launched the unmanned spacecraft Tuesday hidden on top of an Atlas V rocket. As if on cue, clouds quickly swallowed up the rocket as it disappeared out over the ocean. [Too bad it didn't disappear, period.] The military is quiet about this new secret mission known as OTV-3, or Orbital Test Vehicle, flight No. 3. In fact, launch commentary ended 17 minutes into the flight and a news blackout followed.

Company owner pleads guilty to false statements regarding Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station repair work 07 Dec 2012  (PA) The owner of a company that repairs and provides equipment for nuclear power plants has pleaded guilty to federal charges of making false statements after the company shipped a steam leak detection monitor to Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station. The monitor Pentas Controls shipped to Peach Bottom belonged to another power plant, according to court documents. In 2010, Kevin A. Doyle, owner of Pentas Controls in Arizona, directed one of his employees to switch a broken display on a Peach Bottom monitor with a working unit from the Brunswick Nuclear plant in North Carolina, said Neil Sheehan, a spokesman for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Israel suspected over Iran nuclear programme inquiry leaks

December 11, 2012 by legitgov

Israel suspected over Iran nuclear programme inquiry leaks 10 Dec 2012 Israel is suspected of carrying out a series of leaks implicating Iran in nuclear weapons experiments in an attempt to raise international pressure on Tehran and halt its programme. Western diplomats believe the leaks may have backfired, compromising a UN-sanctioned investigation into Iran's past nuclear activities and current aspirations. The latest leak, published by the Associated Press (AP), purported to be an Iranian diagram showing the physics of a nuclear blast, but scientists quickly pointed out an elementary mistake that cast doubt on its significance and authenticity. An article in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists declared: "This diagram does nothing more than indicate either slipshod analysis or an amateurish hoax."

Iran Says It Decoded Data From CIA Drone 10 Dec 2012 Iran's Revolutionary Guard said Monday it has decoded all of the data from an advanced CIA spy drone captured last year.

Tehran had previously said it recovered information from the top-secret stealth aircraft, but Monday's announcement suggests technicians may have broken encryptions.

Pentagon prepares military operation in Mali 08 Dec 2012 It's only December, but it looks like the Pentagon has all planned out how they'll spend a good part of 2013. US officials now claim that the Defense Department is busy preparing a military operation in the nation of Mali.

9/11 FEMA videographer at Ground Zero goes public

December 10, 2012 by legitgov

9/11 FEMA videographer at Ground Zero goes public --'I learned that FEMA and several other federal agencies had already moved into position at their command center at Pier 92 on September 10th, one day before the attacks.' 22 Jun 2009 As official videographer for the U.S. government, Kurt Sonnenfeld was detailed to Ground Zero on September 11, 2001, where he spent an entire month filming. He never handed his 29 tapes over to the authorities and has been persecuted ever since... Kurt Sonnenfeld: Building Six was evacuated within twelve minutes after the first airplane struck the North Tower. The streets were immediately clogged with fire trucks, police cars and blocked traffic, and the vault was large enough, 15 meters by 15 meters by my estimate, to necessitate at least a big truck to carry out its contents. And after the towers fell and destroyed most of the parking level, a mission to recover the contents of the vault would have been impossible. The vault had to have been emptied before the attack.

Livestock falling ill in fracking regions

December 9, 2012 by legitgov

Livestock falling ill in fracking regions 29 Nov 2012 In the midst of the domestic energy boom, livestock on farms near oil- and gas-drilling operations nationwide have been quietly falling sick and dying. While scientists have yet to isolate cause and effect, many suspect chemicals used in drilling and hydrofracking (or "fracking") operations are poisoning animals [and people] through the air, water or soil. Earlier this year, Michelle Bamberger, an Ithaca, N.Y., veterinarian, and Robert Oswald, a professor of molecular medicine at Cornell's College of Veterinary Medicine, published the first and only peer-reviewed report to suggest a link between fracking and illness in food animals.
