Arizona lawmen hit a third time by hackers --Released documents include anti-Muslim sentiments and derogatory jokes about President Obama 01 Jul 2011 For the third time in a week, hackers have released information pilfered from compromised online accounts of Arizona law enforcement officers. Under the "AntiSec" umbrella, the combined Anonymous-LulzSec hacker group is targeting government agencies, financial institutions, and other high-profile targets. AntiSec first released e-mails, phone numbers, passwords, and other information belonging to the Arizona Department of Public Safety on June 23. Earlier this week, AntiSec released information from personal e-mail accounts of officers. And last night, the hackers defaced eight Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Web sites.

AFRICOM: AF, Navy flying hundreds of Libya strike missions 30 Jun 2011 Air Force and Navy aircraft are still flying hundreds of strike missions over Libya despite the Obama administration's claim that American forces are playing only a limited support role in the NATO operation.

Previously, Washington had claimed that it was mostly providing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and tanker support to NATO forces operating over Libya.

July 1, 2011 by legitgov

Strauss-Kahn released without bail after rape 'victim' is accused of lying to investigators --Charges still stand but he was handed his freedom at hearing today --However authorities still hold his passport so he can't leave U.S. --'Victim has possible links' to drug dealers and money launderers [aka CIA] --He may return to French politics 'sooner rather than later' 01 Jul 2011 Former IMF boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn today was sensationally handed his freedom as the case against his alleged rape of a hotel maid was on the brink of collapse. The move in his sexual assault case on Friday at a New York court comes after prosecutors said an extensive background investigation of the alleged victim caused them to reassess things. The New York hotel maid who accused Strauss-Kahn of raping her in his $3,000-a-night suite lied to investigators, law enforcement sources claim.

Strauss-Kahn Case Seen as in Jeopardy

July 1, 2011 by legitgov

Strauss-Kahn Case Seen as in Jeopardy --'Accuser has repeatedly lied' 01 Jul 2011 The sexual assault case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn is on the verge of collapse as investigators have uncovered major holes in the credibility of the housekeeper who charged that he attacked her in his Manhattan hotel suite in May, according to two well-placed law enforcement officials. Although forensic tests found unambiguous evidence of a sexual encounter between Mr. Strauss-Kahn, a French politician, and the woman, prosecutors do not believe much of what the accuser has told them about the circumstances or about herself. Since her initial allegation on May 14, the accuser has repeatedly lied, one of the law enforcement officials said.

Revealed: British government's plan to play down Fukushima

July 1, 2011 by legitgov

Revealed: British government's plan to play down Fukushima --Internal emails seen by Guardian show PR campaign was launched to protect UK nuclear plans after tsunami in Japan 30 Jun 2011 British government officials approached nuclear companies to draw up a co-ordinated public relations strategy to play down the Fukushima nuclear accident just two days after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and before the extent of the radiation leak was known. Internal emails seen by the Guardian show how the business and energy departments worked closely behind the scenes with the multinational companies EDF Energy, Areva and Westinghouse to try to ensure the accident did not derail their plans for a new generation of nuclear stations in the UK. "This has the potential to set the nuclear industry back globally," wrote one official at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), whose name has been redacted. [In the US, the Casey Anthony murder trial accomplished the same goal: A virtual media blackout on the 3 nuclear melt-downs at Fukushima, save for CLG and a few others.]

Los Alamos Fire: Perimeter of Nuclear Lab Set Ablaze

July 1, 2011 by legitgov

Los Alamos Fire: Perimeter of Nuclear Lab Set Ablaze 30 Jun 2011 Firefighters working against the wildfire that surrounds the nuclear lab in Los Alamos, N.M., have set part of the perimeter of the lab ablaze in hopes of starving the wildfire of fuel in the event it heads back toward the stash of radioactive material stored inside the lab. After creating a blackened ring that now circles the lab, crews are betting that starting fires to stop them is a gamble that will pay off. To ensure the accuracy of the examination, the Environmental Protection Agency brought in dozens of air monitors all across the state, along with a special airplane that takes instant radiation samples.

Japan names more Fukushima evacuations

July 1, 2011 by legitgov

Japan names more Fukushima evacuations 30 Jun 2011 Japan on Thursday recommended 113 households should evacuate from four districts considered radiation "hot spots" near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, officials said. The voluntary guidance, for areas where higher levels of radiation have been detected sporadically, will affect households in Fukushima prefecture's Date city, officials said, adding that they would be given financial assistance. The districts are Ryozenmachi, Kamioguni, Shimooguni and Tsukidatemachi in Date, some 60 kilometres northwest of the troubled plant, far beyond the 20-kilometre exclusion zone immediately around it.

Tests were conducted in May on 10 children, aged between 6 and 16, by a Japanese civic group and Acro, a French body that measures radioactivity. All 10 tested positive for tiny amounts of caesium-134 and caesium-137.

'UN forces took cholera to Haiti'

July 1, 2011 by legitgov

'UN forces took cholera to Haiti' 30 Jun 2011 A US health center says it has found new evidence which "strongly suggests" that UN peacekeeping forces from Nepal brought a deadly cholera strain to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that the cholera outbreak in quake-hit Haiti originated from the Nepalese forces based near the town of Mirebalais in Centre Department, approximately 60 kilometers (37 miles) northeast of the capital Port au Prince. "Our findings strongly suggest that contamination of the Artibonite (river) and one of its tributaries downstream from a military camp triggered the epidemic," Renaud Piarroux and colleagues wrote in the July issue of CDC's journal Emerging Infectious Diseases.

July 1, 2011 by legitgov

In CIA case, Justice to probe death of 2 detainees 30 Jun 2011 The Justice Department inquiry into CIA interrogations of terrorist detainees has led to a full criminal investigation into the deaths of two people while they were in custody in Iraq and Afghanistan, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday. The attorney general said that he accepted the recommendation of a federal prosecutor, John Durham, who since August 2009 has conducted an inquiry into CIA interrogation practices during the Bush regime. Holder said Durham looked at the treatment of 101 detainees prisoners in U.S. custody since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and concluded that only these two deaths warranted criminal investigation.

Officers responded by firing tear gas which filled the air in Syntagma Square, outside the parliament. Fighting continued into the night as public anger at the package to cut spending and raise taxes by £25billion over five years boiled over into the worst violence yet. Protesters stormed the ground floor of the nearby finance ministry, set fire to a post office and ripped up pavements.

June 30, 2011 by legitgov

Judge Upholds 'Threatened' Listing for Polar Bear 30 Jun 2011 A federal judge today upheld the George W. Bush administration's decision to list the polar bear as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The ruling is a blow to environmental groups that wanted the bear listed as endangered, thereby giving it more protections, and industry groups and others that don't want it listed at all. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan of the District of Columbia issued a 116-page opinion explaining why he granted the federal government's motion for summary judgment.

61% of Voters Blame Republicans Not Obama For Recession By Jason Easley 28 Jun 2011 Buried in the latest McClatchy/Marist poll was an interesting nugget.

Bush playbook.

MSNBC suspends journalist over Barack Obama insult --US cable news channel takes action after Mark Halperin calls US president 'kind of a dick' 30 Jun 2011 A political journalist who said president Barack Obama was being "kind of a dick" live on air has been suspended by US cable news channel MSNBC. Mark Halperin, a political analyst and editor-at-large for Time magazine, made the remark on MSNBC's Morning Joe programme on Thursday during a discussion about an Obama press conference the previous day... The presenters appeared to encourage him to speak his mind and after apparent confusion between the studio and the show's production team in the gallery about whether a delay button was being used, Halperin said: "I thought he was kind of a dick yesterday." [Right, he should have been suspended for adding the words 'kind of.' Obusha's getting ready to cave to his GOP/corpora-terrorist overlords, once again. All the soaring, populist rhetoric tumbles forth -- then the surrender. --LRP]

'Hungry' 7.5ft boa constrictor on loose --Seven-and-a-half foot long 'hungry and unfriendly' [lol] Boa Constrictor escaped 30 Jun 2011 The deadly pet snake -- which has not eaten for three weeks and is due a feed -- slithered out of its owner's cage in Ipswich, Suffolk, on Wednesday. Police admit they "cannot rule out a danger to the public" and have issued a warning to parents to keep children and pets inside until the snake is caught. The nocturnal female snake, called Diva, eats small mammals and when hungry will climb trees and pounce on its prey. [Due a feed? I have about 8 suggestions... which would also whittle down the GOP 2012 presidential field, *considerably.* Just kidding! No reason for treas.gov to troll the CLG logs.]
