New SARS-like virus detected in Middle East

September 24, 2012 by legitgov

New SARS-like virus detected in Middle East 24 Sep 2012 Global health officials are closely monitoring a new respiratory virus related to SARS that is believed to have killed at least one person in Saudi Arabia and left a Qatari citizen in critical condition in London. The germ is a coronavirus, from a family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as SARS, the severe acute respiratory syndrome that killed some 800 people in a 2003 epidemic. In the latest case, British officials alerted the World Health Organization on Saturday of the new virus in a man who transferred from Qatar to be treated in London. [Gee, a new virus -- just in time for US zombie apocalypse training! See: Security firm to hold 'zombie crisis scenario' to prepare for brain-eating virus pandemic 16 Sep 2012.]

Anti-Terrorism Association Blasts US Support for MKO Terrorist Group

September 24, 2012 by legitgov

Anti-Terrorism Association Blasts US Support for MKO Terrorist Group 24 Sep 2012 The Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism (ADVT) in a letter to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blasted Washington's support for the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCR), and cautioned the US to revise its decision for removing the MKO from its terror list. In its letter addressed to the Secretary of State, the ADVT, a non-governmental, cultural institution whose members are the families and children of terrorism victims, underlined the necessity for the US to pursue a non-political drive and to further study its decision before striking the MKO from the list of its terrorist groups.

U.S. stops 20 Iran officials attending U.N. assembly

September 24, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. stops 20 Iran officials attending U.N. assembly 22 Sep 2012 The United States has denied visas to about 20 Iranian government officials hoping to attend next week's United Nations General Assembly, including two ministers, Iran's Fars news agency reported on Saturday. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a regular at the assembly since he took office in 2005, will give his final speech there on Wednesday and will address a meeting on the "rule of law" on Monday. But of the 160-or-so visas requested by the Iranian delegation two months ago, about 20 were turned down, Fars said.

Security firm to hold 'zombie crisis scenario' to prepare for brain-eating virus pandemic

September 23, 2012 by legitgov

Security firm to hold 'zombie crisis scenario' to prepare for brain-eating virus pandemic 16 Sep 2012 Forget the H1N1 pandemic. Could a future crisis arise from an outbreak of viruses that destroy brain cells and render people violently catatonic, like zombies? Next month, HALO Corp. will take over the 44-acre Paradise Point resort in the city's popular Mission Bay and create a series of terrorist scenarios, with immersive Hollywood sets including a Middle Eastern village and a pirates' haven... In the CDC's Preparedness 101 program, fictional zombies are used to drive home the message that Americans must be ready for any emergency -- even the kind that, hypothetically, could stem from a brain-eating virus pandemic. Zombies also star in a 40-page comic book the CDC published, a tongue-in-cheek take on the serious scenario of a mutated virus that quickly spreads as the government dispatches its military to maintain order while infectious disease specialists scour for a vaccine. Naturally, Navy Times got in on the fun, too, publishing a "zombie war deployment guide" in the Aug. 1, 2011, issue. [The *zombies* are those who pathetically attempt to invoke 'humor' to get US citizens acclimated to notion of the elimination of Posse Comitatus while pharma-terrorists attack us with pandemics and subsequent mercury-laden, squalene-filled vaccines.]

Iran finds spying device at Fordow: UK daily

September 23, 2012 by legitgov

Iran finds spying device at Fordow: UK daily 23 Sep 2012 A British newspaper says Iran has discovered an electric monitoring device disguised as rock near the country's Fordow nuclear energy facility. The device was found by the members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who were checking on communications terminals at Fordow last month, Sunday Times reported citing western intelligence sources. The self-destructing device exploded when the IRGC members tried to move what they thought to be a rock.

Terror delisting the MEK is a cynical sham

September 23, 2012 by legitgov

Terror delisting the MEK is a cynical sham 22 Sep 2012 US officials leaked to several news outlets Friday an impending decision by the Obama administration that it intends to remove the Iranian dissident group Mujahadeen e-Khalq (MEK) from the treasury department's terror list. It is known for assassinating US diplomats, military personnel and others... The Iranian dissidents have plotted for years to be removed from the terror list. They enlisted numerous Republican and Democratic officials to lobby on its behalf. Instead of paying lobbying fees to them, it offered honoraria ranging from $10,000-$50,000 per speech to excoriate the US government for its allegedly shabby treatment of the MEK... The US delisting of the group is a sham. The Obama administration isn't even claiming the MEK has renounced terrorism. If it did, it knows that it's likely such a statement would rebound should the MEK's activities become exposed.

Israel teams with terror group to kill Iran's nuclear scientists, U.S. officials tell NBC News

September 23, 2012 by legitgov

Israel teams with terror group to kill Iran's nuclear scientists, U.S. officials tell NBC News [LOL, Israel 'teams with' the terror group. That's like saying oxygen 'teams with' hydrogen to make water. *Covalently bonded* is the term. --LRP] 09 Feb 2012 Deadly attacks on Iranian nuclear scientists are being carried out by an Iranian dissident group that is financed, trained and armed by Israel's secret service, U.S. officials tell NBC News, confirming charges leveled by Iran's leaders. The group, the People's Mujahedin of Iran, has long been designated as a terrorist group by the United States, accused of killing American servicemen and contractors in the 1970s and supporting the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran before breaking with the Iranian mullahs in 1980. The attacks, which have killed five Iranian nuclear scientists since 2007 and may have destroyed a missile research and development site, have been carried out in dramatic fashion, with motorcycle-borne assailants often attaching small magnetic bombs to the exterior of the victims' cars. The Iranians have no doubt who is responsible - Israel and the People's Mujahedin of Iran, known by various acronyms, including MEK, MKO and PMI.

HALO Corp. to Train Military, Law Enforcement On Virus Outbreak: Zombie Apocalypse Training

September 23, 2012 by legitgov

HALO Corp. to Train Military, Law Enforcement On Virus Outbreak: Zombie Apocalypse Training 17 Sep 2012 Security firm HALO Corp. announced yesterday that about 1,000 military personnel, police officials, medical experts and federal workers will learn the ins and outs of a zombie apocalypse, as part of an annual counter-terrorism summit, according to the Military Times. Visitors will learn to deal with a worldwide pandemic, where people become crazy, violent and fearful. Earlier this month, the Department of Homeland Security reported that "the zombies are coming" as part of a hilarious bid to get citizens to prepare for a real disaster. The CDC has released similar statements using zombies as a playful guise to get the public prepared for [US lab-generated] actual disasters.

Newborn giant panda cub dies at National Zoo

September 23, 2012 by legitgov

Newborn giant panda cub dies at National Zoo 23 Sep 2012 The National Zoo's week-old giant panda cub was found dead Sunday morning, the zoo announced. The zoo said keepers heard "distressed vocalizations" from the female giant panda, Mei Xiang, at about 9:17 a.m. Sunday, and realized "this is not right, this is not good," said zoo spokeswoman Pamela Baker-Masson... Zookeepers had been watching the cub closely since its birth because of the extreme hot weather at the time and because its mother had been moving him about their outdoor exhibit instead of keeping him in a nest box, as would be expected, the zoo said.

Terror laws: customs officials could take passengers' DNA

September 23, 2012 by legitgov

Terror laws: customs officials could take passengers' DNA 13 Sep 2012 Passengers could be forced to provide fingerprints and DNA samples against their will as they pass through airports, under planned changes to anti-terror laws. For the first time, customs officials and immigration officers would have the power to take mouth swabs or hair samples without a passenger's consent, the Home Office confirmed. Theresa May, the Home Secretary, is proposing to reform existing powers that police and immigration officers have to stop and search anyone entering the UK, regardless of whether they are suspected terrorists. The government conceded that there were concerns that the sweeping powers were being "unfairly" applied to Muslims and other minorities.

Police to 'patrol' Facebook, Google and Twitter for terrorists under EU plan

September 23, 2012 by legitgov

Police to 'patrol' Facebook, Google and Twitter for terrorists under EU plan --'Providers of chat boxes, email services, messaging systems, social networks, retailing sites, voice over internet protocol ad web forums must have flagging systems.' 21 Sep 2012 Police across Europe will "patrol" Facebook, Google and Twitter for postings supporting terrorism under an EU project detailed in a leaked report. Internet firms also face an array of new obligations to monitor their services for extremist material, according to a document about the "Clean IT" initiative seen by The Telegraph. "It must be legal for police officers to 'patrol' on social media. This includes having a profile, joining user groups, sending and receiving messages, on the platform," the document says. Officials are also preparing proposals for "semi automated detection" systems and buttons to allow users to report suspicious activity on social networks and chatrooms to authorities... The Office of Security and Counter Terrorism, a secretive Home Office unit, already maintains a blacklist of terrorist websites used in filtering software at universities, libraries and other public networks.

US Soldiers on the Ground in Nepal 22 Sep 2012 Early this week, sixty-five American soldiers landed in Kathmandu and moved to Dhikurpokhari of Kaski district of Nepal. They are also travelling in Manang and Mustang districts bordering China's Tibet region. Ostensibly they are on a "humanitarian mission" of assessing the quality of healthcare services available to the local people... In reality, it looks like an advance reconnaissance party to evaluate the nature of local terrain and assess possible local cooperation to overcome logistical bottleneck in the event of Nepal’s occupation.

Iran: Siemens placed explosives in equipment to sabotage 23 Sep 2012 Iran has accused German industrial giant Siemens of placing small explosives in equipment that forms the backbone of the country's nuclear program. "The equipment was supposed to explode after being put to work, in order to dismantle all our systems," declared Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the security committee in Iran's parliament "But the wisdom of our experts thwarted the enemy conspiracy." He said the measures were intended to slow down the country's burgeoning nuclear program.

Swine flu vaccine linked to child narcolepsy: EU watchdog 21 Sep 2012 A swine flu vaccine used in 2009-10 is linked to a higher risk of the sleeping disorder narcolepsy in children and teens in Sweden and Finland, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control said Friday.

Ecuador mulls Assange transfer to Sweden 22 Sep 2012 Ecuador is considering asking Britain to authorise the transfer of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to its embassy in Sweden so he can respond to sex crimes allegations there.

Facilitate the false flags: Pentagon should take over nuclear plant security: lawmaker 21 Sep 2012 The Defense Department should take over security for U.S. nuclear weapons sites after a nuclear complex was broken into with ease in July by an 82-year-old nun and two other peace activists, a top lawmaker in the U.S. House of Representatives said on Friday. Mike Turner, the Republican chairman of the House Armed Services panel that oversees the Energy Department's nuclear weapons complex, has drafted legislation to put the U.S. military in charge of protecting facilities like the Y-12 complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

Ex-Blackwater Firm Will Teach Military Spies Self-Defense

September 21, 2012 by legitgov

Ex-Blackwater Firm Will Teach Military Spies Self-Defense 21 Sep 2012 Now that the private security company formerly known as Blackwater is under new ownership, it's entering into a new partnership with the Defense Department. [That's change you can believe in!] The U.S. military's intelligence service is hiring the firm, along with five others, to train its operatives to defend themselves as they collect information in dangerous places. The Defense Intelligence Agency announced on Thursday evening it would award six private security companies a share of a $20 million contract to provide "individual protective measures training courses" for its operatives. Among them is Academi, the 3.0 version of Blackwater, now under new ownership and management. It appears to be the first Blackwater/Academi contract with the military since a Blackwater "shell company" called Paravant held one to train Afghan policemen -- and used it to steal their guns for personal use, while posing as South Park characters to disguise their tracks.

Crocker: Taliban Infiltration Worse Than Estimated 18 Sep 2012 Taliban infiltration of the Afghan army and police is much worse than the U.S. military and NATO have admitted and was the main factor in the surprise move to limit contacts with Afghan security forces to curb insider attacks, former ranking  U.S. officials in Afghanistan said.

Prosecutors drop fight for notebook from accused Colorado shooter 20 Sep 2012 Prosecutors dropped their legal fight on Thursday for access to a notebook that accused Colorado theater gunman James Holmes sent to a university psychiatrist before the shooting, saying legal wrangling over it would delay the case for months.

Twelve people were killed and 58 wounded in the attack. [See: Aurora, Colorado Shooting 'Oddities' By Lori Price.]
