U.S. rescue chopper shoots six Libyan villagers as they welcome pilots of downed Air Force jet --Father of boy whose leg may have to be amputated bears coalition troops no malice --Minister refuses to rule out use of ground troops --Algeria calls western military intervention 'disproportionate' 22 Mar 2011 Six Libyan villagers are recovering in hospital after being shot by American soldiers coming in to rescue the U.S. pilots whose plane crash-landed in a field. The helicopter strafed the ground as it landed in a field outside Benghazi beside the downed U.S. Air Force F-15E Eagle which ran into trouble during bombing raid last night. And a handful of locals who had come to greet the pilots were hit - among them a young boy who may have to have a leg amputated because of injuries caused by a bullet wound.

March 22, 2011 by legitgov

Bill protecting anti-terrorism trainers, students clears Senate committee 22 Mar 2011 (GA) The Senate Public Safety Committee took just minutes this morning to approve a House bill that would keep confidential the names of anti-terrorism instructors and the law-enforcement officers who take their classes. While no one spoke in opposition to House Bill 261 before the committee’s unanimous vote, one Muslim peace activist from Augusta does object. Ayman Fadel, an organizer of the CSRA Peace Alliance, argues that many of the counter-terrorism trainers are unqualified and says their tactics focus more on political dissent than security precautions.

March 22, 2011 by legitgov

White House: 'Installing a democratic system' is goal in Libya [Install one in the US, first.] 22 Mar 2011 The White House suggested Tuesday the mission in Libya is one of regime change, despite emphatic statements from President Obama and military brass that the goal is not to remove Moammar Gadhafi from power. According to a White House readout of a Monday night call between Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the two leaders "underscored their shared commitment to the goal of helping provide the Libyan people an opportunity to transform their country, by installing a democratic system that respects the people’s will." The term "installing" suggests the goal of regime change.

Japan quake death toll passes 18,000 22 Mar 2011 The human and financial cost of the tsunami continues to rise, after police estimates showed more than 18,000 people have died in the disaster and the World Bank said it may cost Japan as much as £145bn to repair the damage. The figures came as emergency workers were evacuated from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant after smoke or steam was seen rising from one of its reactor units. The smoke raised concerns that water in the spent fuel pools at the No 3 unit was running low.

Mo. pushes ahead with nuclear plant bill 21 Mar 2011 Backers of [GOP-backed, of course] legislation designed to help build a second Missouri nuclear power plant are pushing forward with the idea, despite an emergency in Japan set off by an earthquake, tsunami and overheating reactors.

It also has tinged Missouri's debate about whether to let power companies charge their customers for taking a preliminary step toward potentially building a second reactor here.

Libya: the West and al-Qaeda on the same side [They usually are.] 18 Mar 2011 Statements of support for Libya's revolution by al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] and leading Islamists have led to fears that military action by the West might be playing into the hands of its ideological enemies. WikiLeaks cables, independent analysts and reporters have all identified supporters of Islamist causes among the opposition to Col Gaddafi's regime, particularly in the towns of Benghazi and Dernah. An al-Qaeda leader of Libyan origin, Abu Yahya al-Libi, released a statement backing the insurrection a week ago, while Yusuf Qaradawi, the Qatar-based, Muslim Brotherhood-linked theologian issued a fatwa authorising Col Gaddafi's military entourage to assassinate him.

On Monday, SPIEGEL published some of the photos -- and the US military responded promptly with an apology. Still, NATO fears that reactions in Afghanistan could be violent... The suspects are accused of having killed civilians for no reason and then of trying to make it look as though the killings had been acts of self-defense.

Radiation poisoning of food supply in Japan 'is a lot more serious' than first feared, health experts admit --Contaminated food believed to have made it out of containment zone around stricken plant --Smoke seen rising from area which housed core of spent nuclear fuel in reactor Number 3 21 Mar 2011 The World Health Organisation has said that the amount of radiation in food after the earthquake damaged a Japanese nuclear plant was worse then previously thought. Fears have already been raised after radiation was detected in spinach, beans and milk produced near the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi plant. The contamination has also spread to tap water in Tokyo and there are concerns that radioactive particles in water used to cool the plant's reactors will leak into the sea.

US commander warns of Libya stalemate 20 Mar 2011 Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, has said the military operation in Libya called for by the UN Security Council is not aimed at regime change - adding that a "stalemate" could well exist, leaving Muammar Gaddafi in power.

Anti-aircraft fire was also heard in the Libyan capital on Sunday night, indicating a second wave of incoming jets.
