June 1, 2011 by legitgov

Pentagon files death penalty case against five Guantánamo Bay prisoners --It is not known how any Guantánamo death penalty would be carried out. The Military Commission manual leaves that decision up to the Secretary of Defense.. 31 May 2011 Guantánamo war court prosecutors filed fresh death penalty charges against five men for allegedly plotting the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, accusing the former CIA captives of murder, conspiracy and terrorism, the Pentagon said Tuesday. All five men spent years in CIA custody at a so-called black site, overseas prisons at still-secret locations, where they were interrogated [and tortured] on al Qaeda terror plots until former President [sic] George W. Bush ordered their transfer to U.S. military custody in September 2006 to ready them for military trials.

Court rules for Ashcroft in 2003 detention case 31 May 2011 Former Attorney General John Ashcroft cannot be held liable for the detention of an American Muslim after the September 11 attacks in 2001, the U.S. Supreme Court said on Tuesday in a decision that granted him immunity. The 'justices' unanimously overturned a ruling that allowed Abdullah al-Kidd to proceed with his lawsuit against Ashcroft over his arrest, alleged mistreatment and 16-day detention under a U.S. material witness law. The high court agreed with the Obama administration that Ashcroft, who as President [sic] George W. Bush's first attorney general helped craft tough anti-terrorism policies adopted after the September 11 attacks, had immunity from such lawsuits.

May 31, 2011 by legitgov

Pentagon Sets Stage for U.S. to Respond to Computer Sabotage With Military Force --Pentagon: Cyber Combat: Act of War 31 May 2011 The Pentagon has concluded that computer sabotage coming from another country can constitute an act of war, a finding that for the first time opens the door for the U.S. to respond using traditional military force. The Pentagon's document runs about 30 pages in its classified version and 12 pages in the unclassified one. It concludes that the Laws of Armed Conflict... have come to guide the conduct of war and proportionality of response--apply in cyberspace as in traditional warfare, according to three defense officials who have read the document. [Not to mention, USociopaths executing computer sabotage and *blaming others* so the US can launch new wars for Exxon Mobil.]

Nato air strikes can no longer target houses in Afghanistan, says Karzai 31 May 2011 Angered by civilian casualties, the Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, has said he will no longer allow Nato air strikes on houses, issuing his strongest statement yet against methods that the military alliance says are key to its war on Taliban insurgents. The president's remarks follow a recent strike that 'mistakenly' killed a group of children and women in southern Helmand province. He said it would be the last. "From this moment, air strikes on the houses of people are not allowed," Karzai told reporters in Kabul.

Afghanistan withdrawal: no significant pull out, says senior British general 31 May 2011 No more Western troops should be withdrawn from Afghanistan for at least another year, Britain's senior commander in the country has told David Cameron. Days after the Prime Minister announced the first reduction in British troop numbers, Lt Gen James Bucknall said talk of an early exit risked sending mixed messages that could encourage the Taliban. Nato troop numbers should remain unchanged for two more summer "fighting seasons", he said.

Fukushima Debacle Risks Chernobyl 'Dead Zone' as Radiation in Soil Soars --Radiation from plant has spread over 600 square kilometers (230 square miles) 30 May 2011 Radioactive soil in pockets of areas near Japan's crippled nuclear plant have reached the same level as Chernobyl, where a "dead zone" remains 25 years after the reactor in the former Soviet Union exploded. Soil samples in areas outside the 20-kilometer (12 miles) exclusion zone around the Fukushima plant measured more than 1.48 million becquerels a square meter, the standard used for evacuating residents after the Chernobyl accident, Tomio Kawata, a fellow at the Nuclear Waste Management Organization of Japan, said in a research report published May 24 and given to the government.

Did BP's oil-dissolving chemical make the spill worse?

May 31, 2011 by legitgov

Did BP's oil-dissolving chemical make the spill worse? 30 May 2011 BP succeeded in sinking the oil from its blown well out of sight... by dousing the crude with nearly 2 million gallons of toxic chemicals. But the impact on the ecosystem as a whole may have been more damaging than the oil alone. The combination of oil and Corexit, the chemical BP used to dissolve the slick, is more toxic to tiny plants and animals than the oil in most cases, according to preliminary research by several Florida scientists. And the chemicals may not have broken down the oil as well as expected.

Dempsey as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and promoted two other senior military leaders Monday, completing an overhaul of his national security team in advance of the 2012 election. Obama's appointments will usher in a new leadership at the Pentagon, where for the first 2 1/2 years of his term he had kept most of the existing brass from his predecessor [sic] George W. Bush. In turning to Dempsey, Obama had to pull him out of a high-ranking position -- Army chief of staff -- that he had appointed him to just last month.

"We strongly hope that the entire civilized world will come to realize what threat this regime is posing and take joint action to avert the nuclear threat posed by Iran, even if it would be necessary to conduct a pre-emptive strike," Yaalon was quoted by Interfax as saying.

Five of them were armed and wearing sand-coloured clothes, peaked caps, and cotton Arab scarves. The sixth, apparently the most senior of the group, may be an intelligence officer.

CIA prisons in Poland 'illegal'

CIA prisons in Poland 'illegal' --Prosecutors representing terror suspect Adb al-Rahim al-Nashiri claim the man was tortured at the facility between 2002 to 2003. Al-Nashiri was subjected to waterboarding and mock executions with a power drill while he was naked and hooded, the prosecutors said. 30 May 2011 Secret prisons operated by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) on Polish territory violated international law and the Polish constitution according to legal experts, reported the daily Gazeta Wyborcza on Monday, citing sources close to an investigation. The CIA held terror suspects inside a military intelligence training base in Stare Kiejkuty, northeastern Poland, from 2002 to 2005, anonymous Polish intelligence officers have said. According to Wyborcza, Poland and the US agreed that the US would not reply to a Polish request for assistance in the case. This would prolong the investigation until the case could be suspended, the daily reported, citing a source in the prosecutor's office.

Uranium Stocks Under Siege as Fukushima Continues Spewing Radiation

Uranium Stocks Under Siege as Fukushima Continues Spewing Radiation 30 May 2011 As shares in uranium exploration companies continued to shed value, Japan's nuclear nightmare is still getting worse. News this weekend that the hope of 'stabilizing' the leakage of radiation by steam into the atmospohere and by water into the ocean is unlikely underscores just how bad the situation is. Within a 20 kilometre radius around the stricken plant, a Chernobyl-style dead zone is developing, with levels of 1.48 million becquerels a square meter measured within that area. Dangerous levels of radiation have now been confirmed as far as 600 kilometres away from Fukushima.

Two Fukushima workers may have exceeded radiation limit

May 30, 2011 by legitgov

Two Fukushima workers may have exceeded radiation limit 30 May 2011 Two workers at Japan's crippled nuclear power plant may have exceeded the government's radiation exposure limit, the plant operator said. Measurements of external exposure and radioactive iodine in their thyroid glands suggested that the two male workers, one in his 30s and the other in his 40s, had surpassed the maximum set by the government of 250 millisieverts over the life of the control and clean-up project. The government relaxed its upper limit for exposure for the Fukushima disaster, allowing 250 millisieverts for male emergency workers compared with the conventional maximum of 100 millisieverts for nuclear-related emergencies.

AP: Fukushima tsunami plan a single page 28 May 2011 Japanese nuclear regulators trusted that the reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi complex were safe from the worst waves an earthquake could muster based on a single-page memo from the plant operator nearly a decade ago. In the Dec. 19, 2001, document -- one double-sized page obtained by The Associated Press under Japan's public records law -- Tokyo Electric Power Co. rules out the possibility of a tsunami large enough to knock the plant offline and gives scant details to justify this conclusion, which proved to be wildly optimistic.

Top lobbying banks got biggest bailouts: study

May 30, 2011 by legitgov

Top lobbying banks got biggest bailouts: study 26 May 2011 The more aggressively a bank lobbied before the financial crisis, the worse its loans performed during the economic downturn -- and the more bailout dollars it received, according to a study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research this week. The report, titled "A Fistful of Dollars: Lobbying and the Financial Crisis," said that banks' lobbying efforts may be motivated by short-term profit gains, which can have devastating effects on the economy. Data collected by the authors -- three economists from the International Monetary Fund -- show that the most aggressive lobbyers in the financial industry from 2000 to 2007 also made the most toxic mortgage loans.

Worst ever carbon emissions leave climate on the brink --Record rise, despite recession, means 2C target almost out of reach 29 May 2011 Greenhouse gas emissions increased by a record amount last year, to the highest carbon output in history, putting hopes of holding global warming to safe levels all but out of reach, according to unpublished estimates from the International Energy Agency. The shock rise means the goal of preventing a temperature rise of more than 2 degrees Celsius - which scientists say is the threshold for potentially "dangerous climate change" - is likely to be just "a nice Utopia", according to Fatih Birol, chief economist of the IEA.

Afghan leader Karzai issues 'last warning' to Nato --The BBC's Quentin Sommerville said villagers brought their dead children to the governor's office shouting: "See they aren't Taliban". 29 May 2011 Afghan President Hamid Karzai has forcefully condemned the killing of 14 civilians in the south-west of the country in a suspected Nato air strike. Mr Karzai said his government had repeatedly asked the US to stop raids which end up killing Afghan civilians and this was his "last warning". Afghan officials say all those killed were women and children.
