Anti-Obama group raising money off events related to Colorado shooting

July 22, 2012 by legitgov

Anti-Obama group raising money off events related to Colorado shooting 20 Jul 2012 Less than 24 hours after a shooting at a Colorado movie theater claimed the lives of 12 people and injured dozens more, a conservative political action committee sent supporters an email using coverage of the event to push for donations. The Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama released a fundraising letter late Friday afternoon requesting donations over an early report on ABC News that suggested a member of a Colorado tea party group may have been the shooter. The on-air report, delivered by ABC News chief investigative [sic] correspondent Brian Ross on "Good Morning America," was inaccurate, and Ross issued an apology and a correction later that day. The fundraising letter, which was written on behalf of Texas Senate candidate Ted Cruz, asked for money to "fight back" against the media.

Glacier in North Greenland Breaks Off Huge Iceberg 20 Jul 2012 An iceberg twice the size of Manhattan tore off one of Greenland's largest glaciers, illustrating another dramatic change to the warming island. For several years, scientists had been watching a long crack near the tip of the northerly Petermann Glacier. NASA satellites this week showed it had broken completely, freeing an iceberg measuring 46 square miles. A massive ice sheet covers about four-fifths of Greenland. Petermann Glacier is mostly on land, but a segment sticks out over water like a frozen tongue, and that's where the break occurred.

NSA Spy Activities Violated Fourth Amendment Rights, Letter Discloses 20 Jul 2012 National Security Agency spy activities on at least one [?!] occasion have violated the Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure, according to a ruling by the U.S.'s secret national security court. The ruling, which was revealed Friday in a declassified statement, represented the first time the government has acknowledged U.S. spy activities violated the constitution since the passage of a 2008 law that overhauled surveillance laws following the uproar over the NSA's warrantless wiretapping program in the George W. Bush Administration... Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon (D) is currently blocking Senate consideration of an extension of the 2008 law because he is concerned that the government hasn't tallied the number of Americans who have been spied on under the law.

Explosives in Colo. shooter's apt. successfully deactivated 21 Jul 2012 The Colorado shooting suspect planned the rampage that killed 12 midnight moviegoers with "calculation and deliberation," police said Saturday, receiving deliveries for months which authorities believe armed him for battle and were used to rig his apartment with dozens of bombs. Authorities on Saturday were still working to clear dangerous explosive materials from inside James Holmes' suburban Denver apartment a day after police said he opened fire and set off gas canisters in a suburban theater minutes into the premiere of the Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises."

Fukushima workers 'told to lie'

July 22, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima workers 'told to lie' 22 Jul 2012 A subcontractor at Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant told workers to lie about radiation exposure. An executive at construction firm Build-Up in December told about 10 of its workers to cover their dosimeters, used to measure cumulative radiation exposure, with lead casings when working in areas with high radiation, the Asahi Shimbun newspaper and other media said. The action was apparently designed to under-report their exposure to allow the company to continue working at the site of the worst nuclear disaster in a generation, media reports said.

'Private contractors are whacking people like crazy over in Afghanistan for the CIA.'

'Private contractors are whacking people like crazy over in Afghanistan for the CIA.' --The Terrifying Background of the Man Who Ran a CIA Assassination Unit 18 Jul 2012 It was one of the biggest secrets of the post-9/11 era: soon after the attacks, President Bush gave the CIA permission to create a top secret assassination unit to find and kill Al Qaeda operatives. The program was kept from Congress for seven years. And when Leon Panetta told legislators about it in 2009, he revealed that the CIA had hired the private security firm Blackwater to help run it. "The move was historic," says Evan Wright, the two-time National Magazine Award-winning journalist who wrote Generation Kill. "It seems to have marked the first time the U.S. government outsourced a covert assassination service to private enterprise." ..."Running operations through Blackwater gave the CIA the power to have people abducted, or killed, with no one in the government being exactly responsible." ..."While Blackwater's covert unit began as a Bush administration story, President Obama now owns it."

Japan probes under-reporting of Fukushima radiation dosage 21 Jul 2012 Japan's health ministry said it would investigate reports that workers at the stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant were urged by a subcontractor to place lead around radiation detection devices in order to stay under a safety threshold for exposure. The Asahi Shimbun newspaper reported on Saturday that an executive from Build-Up, a subcontractor to plant owner Tokyo Electric Power, told workers to cover the devices called dosimeters when working in high-radiation areas. Dosimeters can be worn as badges or carried as devices around the size of a smart phone to detect radiation.

Gunmen Attack UN Polio Doctor in Pakistan 17 Jul 2012 Gunmen opened fire on a United Nations vehicle in the southern port city of Karachi on Tuesday, seriously wounding a Ghanaian doctor who was part of an urgent campaign to eradicate spread polio from Pakistan. The attack was a further blow to the three-day polio vaccination drive, which had already been stymied in some parts of the country by Taliban threats. The Taliban also claimed that the vaccination campaign was a cover for American espionage, and referred to Shakil Afridi, the Pakistani doctor hired by the Central Intelligence Agency to help track 'Osama bin Laden' in early 2011, who had also worked on polio vaccination.

July 21, 2012 by legitgov

Colorado Movie Theater Shooting: 71 Victims The Largest Mass Shooting 20 Jul 2012 Twelve people were killed and 59 were injured in Aurora, Colo., during a sold-out midnight premier of the new Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises" when 24-year-old James Holmes unloaded four weapons' full of ammunition into the unsuspecting crowd. The number of casualties makes the incident the largest mass shooting in U.S. history. Holmes, a graduate student at a nearby college with a clean arrest record, entered the movie auditorium wearing a ballistics helmet, bullet-proof vest, bullet-proof leggings, gas mask and gloves. He detonated multiple smoke bombs, and then began firing at viewers in the sold-out auditorium, police said today. Holmes was apprehended within minutes of the 12:39 a.m. shooting at his car behind the theater, where police found him in full riot gear and carrying three weapons, including a AR-15 assault rifle, which can hold upwards of 100 rounds, a Remington 12 gauge shot gun, and a .40 Glock handgun.

The suspect, James Holmes, 24, told the police after his arrest that he had booby-trapped his Aurora apartment with explosive devices, leading the police to evacuate five buildings in the neighborhood as they sought to disable what they described as "incendiary devices" rigged to trip wires. Mr. Holmes had apparently planned the attack for some time: He wore a gas mask, body armor, a tactical helmet and was dressed completely in black.

Ex-CIA man's vindictive prosecution claim rejected

Ex-CIA man's vindictive prosecution claim rejected 20 Jul 2012 A judge has rejected claims by a former CIA officer accused of leaking names of covert operatives to journalists that he is a victim of vindictive prosecution. Lawyers for John Kiriakou sought Friday to have most of the charges against him dismissed. They argued in court papers that the case is retribution for public statements by Kiriakou that portrayed the CIA in an unflattering light and that similar leaks have not been the subject of a criminal prosecution. At Friday's hearing, though, the judge cut off the argument before it began and ruled that the prosecution would go forward.

Syrian troops take control over Damascus neighborhood 20 Jul 2012 Syrian troops and tanks on Friday drove rebels from a Damascus neighborhood where some of the heaviest of this week's fighting in the capital left cars gutted and fighters' bodies in the streets. More than 300 people were killed in a single day, activists said, as the military struggles to regain momentum after a stunning bombing against the regime's leadership. A fourth member of President Bashar Assad's inner circle, national security chief Gen. Hisham Ikhtiyar, died of wounds he suffered in Wednesday's bomb blast, which went off during a high level security meeting in Damascus, the government announced.

GI largely barred from discussing WikiLeaks harm 20 Jul 2012 A military judge on Thursday largely barred an Army private from presenting evidence at his trial that the mountain of classified information he's accused of leaking did little harm to U.S. national security and foreign relations. Army Col. Denise Lind, presiding over a pretrial hearing at Fort Meade, agreed with prosecutors that the extent of any damage is irrelevant to the 22 charges against Pfc. Bradley Manning. He's accused of aiding the enemy by sending hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables and war logs to the secret-spilling website WikiLeaks. That charge carries a possible life sentence.

Bain Capital started with help of offshore investors

July 20, 2012 by legitgov

Bain Capital started with help of offshore investors 19 Jul 2012 When Mitt Romney launched Bain Capital in 1984, he struggled at first to raise enough money for the untested venture. So he and his partners tapped an eclectic roster of investors, raising more than a third of their first $37-million investment fund from wealthy foreigners. Most of the foreign investors' money came through corporations registered in Panama, then known for tax advantages and unusual banking secrecy. The first outside investor in Bain was a leading London financier, Sir Jack Lyons, who made a $2.5-million investment through a Panama shell company set up by a Swiss money manager, further shielding his identity. Years later, Lyons was convicted in an unrelated stock fraud scandal. About $9 million came from rich Latin Americans, including powerful Salvadoran families living in Miami during their country's brutal [US-engendered] civil war.
