August 14, 2011 by legitgov

PM Pledges 'Zero Tolerance' After Riots [Ok, but what's your tolerance for revolution?] 14 Aug 2011 David Cameron has said it is time for a "zero tolerance" approach to street crime after Britain experienced its worst [sic] rioting for decades. The Prime Minister's comments, made in The Sunday Telegraph, follow the appointment of a former New York police chief as a government advisor on gang violence. Mr Cameron told the newspaper he will announce a series of tough measures to reclaim the streets, which have remained calm across the country this weekend.

Israel to deploy drones in north Iraq --Israeli intelligence agents and military advisers, equipped with special transmission devices, also being sent to Mosul 13 Aug 2011 The Israeli army has stepped up its military activities in Iraq's autonomous Kurdistan Region and is planning to station a number of unmanned aerial vehicles in the area in northern Iraq. Israel plans to deploy new equipment, including six drones, in the region in cooperation with the Kurdistan Democratic Party, a Press TV correspondent in northern Iraq reported on Saturday. [Ah, so *that's* how USociopaths are going to circumvent the American public and keep the Iraq war going: Via tax dollars, via Israel. --LRP]

Bachmann wins early Republican test in US poll 13 Aug 2011 Republican congresswoman Michele Bachmann won the Iowa straw poll, setting the stage for what some say could set her well on the road to challenge US President Barack Obama in 2012. Bachmann, with the help of Tea Party supporters, was the first woman to win the event. "This is a very first step toward taking the White House in 2012," Bachmann said to a crowd of about 100 supporters surrounding her bus shortly after the announced win.

Role for US adviser upsets British police

August 13, 2011 by legitgov

Role for US adviser upsets British police --William Bratton to advise on strategies to deal with rioting after criticism of UK force by David Cameron. 13 Aug 2011 The British prime minister's decision to appoint a US street crime expert as an adviser after recent riots was a "slap in the face", a police body has said. William Bratton said on Saturday he would help David Cameron's government develop strategies on dealing with widespread rioting and gang culture. But a leader of the Greater Manchester Police Federation, which represents police interests', said Britain did not need somebody "who lives 5,000 miles away", and said the only thing the police needed was more funding.

US railway blocked phones to quash protest --California transit provider interrupted wireless mobile service to hamper protesters angry over police shooting. 13 Aug 2011 A rail transit provider in the United States disabled mobile phone services to prevent a planned protest on Thursday, attracting criticism and unflattering comparisons to crackdowns on dissent in the Middle East. Demonstrators in northern California's Bay Area had planned a protest to condemn the shooting death of Charles Hill, who was killed on July 3 after Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) police officers responded to complaints about a drunk man at a station in the city of San Francisco. Hill was fatally shot in the torso and protesters responded eight days later with a demonstration that shut down three San Francisco BART stations.

FBI wants businesses watching for customers paying with cash --Government calls buying 'night flashlights,' making 'extreme religious statements' indicators of terrorism 12 Aug 2011 Days after the White House announced a community-based approach to combating terrorism in the United States, the FBI and other agencies are asking managers of surplus stores to spy on their customers, watching whether they pay in cash, make "extreme" religious statements or purchase products such as waterproof matches. The request from the government also is going to gun shops, fertilizer suppliers, motels and hotels, authorities say.

MI6 produced bogus Iraq war evidence under pressure from Downing Street

August 13, 2011 by legitgov

MI6 produced bogus Iraq war evidence under pressure from Downing Street 12 Aug 2011 The exhausted secret intelligence officer was heading home after a heavy session analysing reports from Iraq. As he stepped out through the high-security air-lock exit from MI6's grand headquarters beside the Thames in London, a newspaper-seller's placard caught his eye -- '45 minutes from attack,' it proclaimed. Alarm bells rang in his head. It was September 2002, and Prime Minister Tony Blair had that day unveiled with great fanfare the government's dossier detailing Saddam Hussein's arsenal of weapons of mass destruction, as a justification for going to war. He knew, in a way the public did not, the precise background to that headline. His first thought was that this was not what the original intelligence report had said. 'If this goes wrong, we're all screwed,' he muttered to himself. It did go wrong, spectacularly so, as a new history of MI6 by the BBC's well-informed security correspondent Gordon Corera recounts.

US to delay Afghan prison handover until at least 2014

August 13, 2011 by legitgov

US to delay Afghan prison handover until at least 2014 --A typical hearing at the prison, in front of US military officers, includes no lawyers or judges. 13 Aug 2011 The US will remain in control of Afghanistan's highest-profile prison well beyond January 2012, missing a milestone in the plan to transfer judicial and detention operations to Afghans, US military officials say. The existence of the US military prison near Bagram Airfield, about 30 miles north of Kabul, has long been seen by Afghans as a sign of imperial overreach. The US military has detained suspected insurgents here for nearly a decade; most have been kept without trial. Military officials say that over the past three years, the number of detainees has tripled. Parwan now holds 2,600 inmates.

The tent is made of airtight polyester. It will stand 177 feet tall and stretch 154 feet in length.

Show of force to deter Saturday night rioters 13 Aug 2011 Police forces around England will have an increased presence on the streets tonight to counter fears that more drink-fuelled trouble will break out over the weekend.

The Home Secretary, Theresa May, said that, although the past few nights were trouble-free, numbers would remain high.

UK planning draconian powers to shut phone messaging and social networks in times of civil disorder --Cameron's law: PM planning crackdown on rioters --Police to have power to shut down social networks, remove hoodies and facial coverings, while looters could lose homes and benefits 12 Aug 2011 Ministers and the security services are planning draconian powers to shut down or disrupt mobile phone messaging services and social networks in times of civil disorder. Downing Street sources said they were considering the "moral and technical" questions of how to grant new powers blocking all mobile communications to prevent rioters organising through websites such as Twitter and the BlackBerry Messenger service. Mr Cameron, promising yesterday to do "whatever it takes" to restore order, outlined a series of new security measures, which included: Consider further powers of curfew. Investigate using the Army to free up police for "frontline" duties. Give individual police officers the power to force people to remove scarves, hoods or masks covering their faces or be arrested... The Government will also consult former New York Police commissioner Bill Bratton on further measures to tackle gang [?!?] culture.

8 From G.O.P. Trade Attacks at Iowa Debate 12 Aug 2011 A withering critique of President Obama's handling of the economy was overshadowed by a burst of incivility among the Republican presidential candidates who, in a debate here Thursday night, fought to stay alive in the party's increasingly competitive nominating race. The simmering animosity that has been building among some contenders broke into full view during the two-hour debate, with Representative Michele Bachmann defending her legislative accomplishments, her economic ideas and her experience to serve as president.

Michele Bachmann Repeatedly Sought Stimulus, EPA, Other Government Funds 10 Aug 2011 Few candidates in the Republican presidential primary field have decried the federal government with as much gusto as Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). ...But a Freedom of Information Act request filed by The Huffington Post with three separate federal agencies reveals that on at least 16 separate occasions, Bachmann petitioned the federal government for direct financial help or aid. A large chunk of those requests were for funds set aside through President Obama's stimulus program, which Bachmann once labeled "fantasy economics."

Water cannon, round-ups and dye – MPs grapple over response to events --Conservatives consider tough measures during emergency debate as Labour targets Coalition plans to cut police budgets 12 Aug 2011 From detaining rioters in Wembley Stadium to spraying them with dye, MPs and peers queued up yesterday to spell out their solutions to this week's unprecedented wave of criminality protests. The most unconventional suggestion came from the veteran Tory MP for Louth and Horncastle, Sir Peter Tapsell, who asked why the police were dispersing rioters rather than detaining them. He recalled that in 1971, the American police corralled 40,000 rioters into a stadium one morning, and he inquired whether Wembley Stadium could be put to the same use.

Security flaw found in feds' digital radios 09 Aug 2011 Expensive high-tech digital radios used by the FBI, Secret Service, and Homeland Security are designed so poorly that they can be jammed by a $30 children's toy, CNET has learned.

August 12, 2011 by legitgov

Judge Denies Bid to Force Investigation of Psychologist's Role at Guantánamo 12 Aug 2011 New York State cannot be forced to investigate a psychologist accused by a human rights organization of overseeing coercive interrogation tactics at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, a judge in Manhattan ruled on Thursday. The rights group, the Center for Justice and Accountability, had brought a suit claiming that the psychologist, John Francis Leso, helped develop a plan of coercive techniques torture, including sleep deprivation and isolation, to use on detainees prisoners at Guantánamo. The suit was brought on behalf of Steven Reisner, a psychologist and an assistant professor of clinical psychiatry at the New York University School of Medicine. It sought an investigation of Dr. Leso by a professional disciplinary office in the state's Education Department that regulates psychologists' licenses. But in a 12-page ruling filed in State Supreme Court, Justice Saliann Scarpulla wrote that Dr. Reisner had no standing to force an investigation.

Clarke airs suspicions over Sept. 11 intel failures 11 Aug 2011 Richard Clarke, who served in two administrations as a White House counter-terrorism adviser, said he now suspects the CIA hid its knowledge that two of the Sept. 11 hijackers had entered the United States because the agency had tried – and failed – to recruit them as informants. ..Clarke says it is "the only conceivable reason that I've been able to come up with" to explain why the CIA failed to inform the FBI or the White House of the would-be hijackers presence. Clarke goes on to say he believes "there was a high-level decision in the CIA ordering people not to share information," all but pointing a finger at the CIA Director at the time, George J. Tenet.

AP: Facial recognition in use after riots 11 Aug 2011 Facial recognition technology being considered for London's 2012 Games is getting a workout in the wake of Britain's riots, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday, with officers feeding photographs of suspects through Scotland Yard's newly updated face-matching program.
