Syria's Assad warns against military intervention 21 Aug 2011 Syrian President Bashar Assad said Sunday his government was in no danger of collapse and warned against any foreign military intervention in his country as the regime tries to crush a 5-month-old popular US-backed uprising. In his fourth public appearance since the revolt against his family's 40-year rule erupted in mid-March, Assad insisted that security forces were making inroads against the uprising. "It may seem dangerous... but in fact we are able to deal with it," he told state-run TV in a 40-minute interview.

Rep. Waters: 'The tea party can go straight to hell' 21 Aug 2011 On Saturday in Inglewood, Calif., Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters had some harsh words for the tea party. "I'm not afraid of anybody," the California congresswoman told constituents in footage that appeared on ABC affiliate KABC in Los Angeles, not backing down from comments made about President Obama earlier in the week. "This is a tough game. You can't be intimidated. You can't be frightened. And as far as I'm concerned -- the tea party can go straight to hell." That proclamation was met with cheers from the audience, including attendees adorning purple SEIU T-shirts.

'Hikers' jailed for illegally entering Iran 20 Aug 2011 Two US 'hikers' have been sentenced to eight years in prison in Iran. The men, Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer, had been arrested in July 2009 for illegally entering Iran and spying. They were arrested as a trio, along with an American woman who has since been repatriated to the US on health grounds. [Riddle me this. If you're an American, WHY on EARTH would you choose to go *hiking* on the nebulous Iran/Iraq border? Answer: You DON'T. Obviously, they were CIA operatives who sought an opening to illegally enter Iran. --LRP]

August 21, 2011 by legitgov

War costs may top $3.7 trillion 21 Aug 2011 Congress has allotted $1.3 trillion for war spending through fiscal year 2011 just to the Defense Department. In a recent speech, President Barack Obama assigned the wars a $1-trillion price tag. But all those numbers are incomplete. Besides what Congress appropriated, the Pentagon spent an additional unknown amount from its $5.2-trillion base budget over that same period. According to a recent Brown University study, the wars and their ripple effects have cost the U.S. $3.7 trillion, or more than $12,000 per American.

US troops may stay in Afghanistan until 2024 19 Aug 2011 America and Afghanistan are close to signing a strategic pact which would allow thousands of United States troops to remain in the country until at least 2024, The Daily Telegraph can disclose. The agreement would allow not only military trainers to stay to build the Afghan army and police, but also American special forces soldiers and air power to remain.

Obama Administration to Review All Deportation Cases, Apply DREAM Act-Style Criteria

August 19, 2011 by legitgov

Obama Administration to Review All Deportation Cases, Apply DREAM Act-Style Criteria 18 Aug 2011 The Obama administration announced Thursday that it would launch a case-by-case review of illegal immigrants slated for deportation, in a move that could grant a reprieve to so-called DREAM Act beneficiaries and thousands of others. The DREAM Act is a proposal in Congress to give illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children a chance at legal status if they complete two years of college or military service. Though the bill has not passed, supporters and critics alike suggested Thursday's announcement could serve to unilaterally carry out its provisions.

US, allies declare that Syria's Assad must leave [Ok, time for Syria to declare that Obama do the same.] 19 Aug 2011 Executing a global squeeze play, the United States and its European allies on Thursday demanded an end to four decades of brutal family dictatorship in Syria and underscored the tough talk with new sanctions on President Bashar Assad's government. But the diplomacy [sic] left many questions unanswered, including how the demand for Assad's ouster can be backed up in the absence of any appetite for military intervention, and who inside the Syrian government or among the country's fragmented opposition might take his place.

TSA launching behavior-detection program at Boston airport --As part of pilot program, screeners will engage passengers at Logan International Airport in conversation in effort to detect 'suspicious behavior' 17 Aug 2011 For the next two months at Logan International Airport in Boston, passengers will be casually greeted by Transportation Security Administration officials. But the officers aren't there for a friendly "hello" -- they're trying to deter and detect passengers who pose a risk to aviation security. As part of the TSA's new behavior-detection pilot program that started this week, screeners are engaging each passenger in Terminal A in casual conversation in an effort to detect suspicious behavior. After passengers provide their boarding pass and ID, they have to answer a few questions from TSA officers who have received two weeks of training. [LOL!]
