November 23, 2011 by legitgov

Guantanamo authorities reading attorney-client mail, lawyers say 01 Nov 2011 Lawyers representing detainees prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, say authorities at the military base have begun reading privileged attorney-client communication - in a sharp break with past practice. Legal mail is the principal means of communication between detainees charged in military tribunals and their military defense attorneys,who are based in the Washington area. In a letter Tuesday, nine of the attorneys wrote to William K. Lietzau, deputy assistant secretary of defense for rule of law and detainee policy, to object to authorities reading their mail to clients at the detention center. They asked that the commander at Guantanamo Bay be ordered to "cease and desist the seizure, opening, translating, reading and reviewing of attorney-client privileged communications."

License plate readers: Tool for police comes with privacy concerns 19 Nov 2011 Scores of cameras across Washington, DC, capture 1,800 images a minute and download the information into a rapidly expanding archive that can pinpoint people's movements all over town.

Informer's Active Role in Terror Case Is Said to Have Deterred F.B.I.

November 22, 2011 by legitgov

Oops! The false flag begins to unravel at breakneck speed, as usual: Informer's Active Role in Terror Case Is Said to Have Deterred F.B.I. 22 Nov 2011 A confidential informer provided companionship and a staging area so Jose Pimentel could build three pipe bombs while the Intelligence Division of the New York Police Department built its case. But it was the informer's role, and that of his police handlers, that have now been cited as among the reasons the F.B.I., which had its own parallel investigation of Mr. Pimentel, did not pursue the case, which was announced on Sunday night in a news conference at City Hall. Terrorism cases are generally handled by federal authorities. There was concern that the informer might have played too active a role in helping Mr. Pimentel, said several people who were briefed on the case, who all spoke on the condition of anonymity, either because of the tense relations between the Intelligence Division and the F.B.I. or because the case was continuing.

Hacker says he breached Texas water plant network 21 Nov 2011 A hacker says he penetrated the network of a South Houston, Texas, water-treatment plant to expose the inherent vulnerabilities in critical industrial control facilities and prove how easily they can be compromised.

The Grid: A Digital Frontier

The Grid: A Digital Frontier --Repost of loldhs pr0f By A Guest 18 Nov 2011 So, early this morning I was linked to an article about SCADA pumps from someone in IRC... My eyes were drawn, nary, pulled, to a particular quote. 'In an email sent several hours after this article was first published, DHS spokesman Peter Boogaard wrote: "DHS and the FBI are gathering facts surrounding the report of a water pump failure in Springfield Illinois. At this time there is no credible corroborated data that indicates a risk to critical infrastructure entities or a threat to public safety."' This was stupid. You know. Insanely stupid. I dislike, immensely, how the DHS tend to downplay how absolutely FUCKED the state of national infrastructure is... So, y'know. The city of South Houston has a really insecure system.
