September 28, 2012 by legitgov

It's the Friday afternoon Obusha foreign policy bad news dump: US removes MKO from its blacklist of terrorist organizations 28 Sep 2012 The United States has removed Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) [an *actual* terrorist group] from its blacklist of terrorist organizations.

Romney Health Care Plan Nearly Doubles Family Insurance Costs: Study

Romney Health Care Plan Nearly Doubles Family Insurance Costs: Study 28 Sep 2012 Under Mitt Romney's proposed health care plan, American families buying non-group health insurance would pay nearly double what they pay under Obamacare, according to a new study by Families USA entitled "ObamaCare versus RomneyCare versus RomneyCandidateCare." That includes both comparative insurance premium payments as well as out-of-pocket expenses. The study finds that while RomneyCare in Massachusetts bears many similarities to Obamacare, neither are very similar to what Romney's health care plan would look like if he were elected... By 2016, 41.9 million more people would be uninsured under Romney than with Obamacare.

25 Japanese SDF personnel sent to Iraq commit suicide 27 Sep 2012 Twenty-five personnel from the Self-Defense Force of Japan have committed suicide between fiscal 2005 and 2011 after being sent to Iraq, the Defense Ministry said here Thursday. Of the 25, 19 belonged to the Ground Self-Defense Force (GSDF), while the others were from the Air Self-Defense Force (ASDF).

US calls Assange 'enemy of state'

September 28, 2012 by legitgov

US calls Assange 'enemy of state' 27 Sep 2012 The US military has designated Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as enemies of the United States - the same legal category as the al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] terrorist network and the Taliban insurgency. Declassified US Air Force counter-intelligence documents, released under US freedom-of-information laws, reveal that military personnel who contact WikiLeaks or WikiLeaks supporters may be at risk of being charged with "communicating with the enemy", a military crime that carries a maximum sentence of death. The documents, some originally classified "Secret/NoForn" - not releasable to non-US nationals - record a probe by the air force's Office of Special Investigations into a cyber systems analyst based in Britain who allegedly expressed support for WikiLeaks and attended pro-Assange demonstrations in London.

Romney Advisers: Bring Back Torture

September 28, 2012 by legitgov

Romney Advisers: Bring Back Torture [They already did. Have you seen the campaign?] 28 Sep 2012 Mitt Romney's advisers have privately urged him to "rescind and replace President Obama's executive order" and permit secret "enhanced interrogation techniques against high-value detainees that are safe, legal and effective in generating intelligence to save American lives," according to an internal Romney campaign memorandum. "We'll use enhanced interrogation techniques which go beyond those that are in the military handbook right now," he said at a news conference in Charleston, S.C., in December. The Romney campaign document, obtained by The New York Times, is a five-page policy paper titled "Interrogation Techniques." Last December, Mr. Romney was asked about waterboarding at a town-hall meeting in Charleston... At the news conference afterward, a reporter pressed him to say whether he thought waterboarding was torture, and Mr. Romney replied, "I don't." [CLG believes that Obusha's killer drone strikes also constitute torture, and torture still exists at US owned and operated prisons both around the world and on US soil.]

US keen to station troops in NZ: Panetta

September 27, 2012 by legitgov

US keen to station troops in NZ: Panetta 24 Sep 2012 The United States would consider stationing troops on New Zealand soil if our Government asked for them as part of a burgeoning defence relationship, US Secretary of Defence Leon Panetta says. Mr Panetta left New Zealand on Saturday after a whistlestop visit as part of a broader US push to shore up allegiances in the Pacific... His visit marked a watershed in the relationship, after he announced the US would lift a ban on New Zealand naval ships using US ports, and scrap the requirement for a waiver before defence top brass from both countries meet.

Linda McMahon Proposed Social Security 'Sunset' At Tea Party Forum

September 27, 2012 by legitgov

Linda McMahon Proposed Social Security 'Sunset' At Tea Party Forum 26 Sep 2012 In little-noticed remarks at a Tea Party town hall meeting earlier this year, Republican Connecticut Senate candidate Linda McMahon proposed introducing a "sunset provision" into the Social Security Act. McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, has consistently dodged questions about cutting government entitlement programs in her two Senate runs. Speaking before a group of Tea Party supporters in Waterford, Conn. on April 20, however, McMahon said she would consider making major changes to Social Security, from raising the retirement age to means-testing benefits. She also proposed introducing a "sunset provision" -- the legislative term for putting an expiration date on a law unless it is renewed. [Linda McMahon's comments went 'little-noticed,' because the Hartford Courant refuses to 'notice' them, to ensure a GOP victory. The Courant gave/gives an identical pass to Joe LIEberman.]

Iraq, U.S. negotiating agreement for units of American soldiers to return to Iraq

Iraq, U.S. negotiating agreement for units of American soldiers to return to Iraq 24 Sep 2012 Iraq and the United States are negotiating an agreement that could result in the return of small units of American soldiers to Iraq on 'training' missions. At the request of the Iraqi government [?], according to General Caslen, a unit of Army Special Operations soldiers was recently deployed to Iraq to advise on counterterrorism and help with intelligence. [LOL, you have to scroll down *15 paragraphs* to get to this nugget, as the New York Times buried the salient point -- as usual.]

US Special Forces Deployed in Iraq, Again

September 26, 2012 by legitgov

US Special Forces Deployed in Iraq, Again 25 Sep 2012 Despite the official US military withdrawal last December, American special forces "recently" returned to Iraq on a counter-terrorism mission, according to an American general in charge of weapons sales there. The mission was reported by the New York Times, in the fifteenth paragraph [LOL!] of a story about deepening sectarian divides. The irony is that the US is protecting a pro-Iran Shiite regime in Baghdad against a Sunni-based insurgency while at the same time supporting a Sunni-led movement against the Iran-backed dictatorship in Syria.

Murdoch paper hacking plot trial set for next year --All 13 suspects heard proposed date for their trial set for Sept. 9, 2013 26 Sep 2012 Two former editors of Rupert Murdoch-owned newspapers who had close ties to British Prime Minister David Cameron will face trial late next year at the earliest on charges related to alleged phone-hacking, a court heard on Wednesday. Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson were among 13 suspects who appeared in court, accused either of conspiring to intercept the voicemail messages of more than 600 people or hindering the police investigation into those claims. The hearing - at London's Central Criminal Court, known as the Old Bailey - only dealt with administrative matters, not the substance of the allegations.

Todd Akin picks up endorsements from Santorum, DeMint 26 Sep 2012 Top conservatives announced their support for Missouri Republican Todd Akin's embattled campaign for Senate, some reversing course after having earlier called for him to step down following his "legitimate rape" remarks. Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum and South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint jointly gave their backing Wednesday after a final deadline passed for Akin to withdraw from the ballot. And Republican Sen. Roy Blunt, a party leader in the Senate, quietly dropped his previous opposition to Akin's candidacy, and said he would support his fellow Missourian.

Removal of MKO from U.S. terrorist list would be violation of intl. commitments: Iran 26 Sep 2012 Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said on Tuesday that reported decision by the United States to remove the Mojahedin Khalq Organization from its list of terrorist groups would be a violation of its international commitments. Mehmanparast made the remarks in reference to a Reuters story published on September 21 that quoted U.S. officials as saying that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had made the decision to remove the MKO from the list and that it was expected to be announced formally in the coming days.

Romney, Obama descend on battleground Ohio 26 Sep 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Wednesday that he understands the struggles of working families and has the know-how to fix them as he sought to counteract fallout from a secret video that President Barack Obama won't let him live down. Obama was stopping at two college campuses in the hunt for the state's 18 electoral votes, while Romney was here for a second straight day on a bus emblazoned with, "More Jobs, More Take-Home Pay."

Obama uses UN speech to threaten war against Iran

Obama uses UN speech to threaten war against Iran 26 Sep 2012 President Barack Obama postured before the United Nations Tuesday as the champion of peace and democracy, while threatening war against Iran and demanding a crackdown against the wave of anti-US demonstrations that have swept the Middle East...Obama declared these events "an assault on the very ideals upon which the United Nations was founded—the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully; that diplomacy can take the place of war"...What insolence! After a decade of US wars that have claimed the lives of over a million Iraqis and Afghans, the US president is the last person to lecture the people of the Middle East on how to "resolve their differences peacefully" and the advantages of diplomacy over war.

Greece austerity protests turn violent - video 10 Feb 2012 Police in Athens use teargas against protesters after demonstrations against EU-imposed austerity measures turned violent on Friday.

Spain prepares more austerity, protesters battle police 26 Sep 2012 Protesters clashed with police in Spain's capital on Tuesday as the government prepared a new round of unpopular austerity measures for the 2013 budget to be announced on Thursday. Thousands gathered in Neptune plaza, a few meters from El Prado museum in central Madrid, where they formed a human chain around parliament, surrounded by barricades, police trucks and more than 1,500 police in riot gear. Police fired rubber bullets and beat protesters with truncheons, first as protesters were trying to tear down barriers and later to clear the square.

Romney confident despite poll numbers

Romney confident despite poll numbers 26 Sep 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told Ohio voters Tuesday he would win the November election, despite a new poll that shows his rival with a significant lead in the Buckeye State. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine (R) said he didn't believe the margin between the candidates was so wide. "It's going to end up close," DeWine said. [Right, they're confident they can steal the 2012 'election' through dirty money from corpora-terrorists' PACs, GOP voter-suppression laws, and rightwing thuggery from 'True the Vote' sociopaths at the polls. Not that the Lord of the Killer Drone, Barack 'Chains We Can Believe In NDAA' Obama, is any better - he's not. --LRP]

America's deadly double-tap drone attacks are 'killing 49 people for every known terrorist in Pakistan'

America's deadly double tap drone attacks are 'killing 49 people for every known terrorist in Pakistan' --Drone strikes condemned for their ineffectiveness in targeting militants 25 Sept 2014 Just one in 50 victims of America's deadly drone strikes in Pakistan are terrorists - while the rest are innocent civilians, a new report claimed today. The authoritative joint study, by Stanford and New York Universities, concludes that men, women and children are being terrorised by the operations '24 hours-a-day'. And the authors lay much of the blame on the use of the 'double-tap' strike where a drone fires one missile – and then a second as rescuers try to drag victims from the rubble. One aid agency said they had a six-hour delay before going to the scene...Many parents had taken their children out of school because they were so afraid of a missile-strike.

Tobacco giant Philip Morris plans plant flu vaccine for China --Plant in North Carolina built with $21 million in funding from U.S. Defence Department managed to produce 10-million doses of flu vaccine in recet 'rapid-fire' trial 25 Sep 2012 A Canadian company has joined forces with cigarette giant Philip Morris in an unusual project to sell flu vaccine to the huge Chinese market, a potentially major step forward for the controversial science of producing medicines in plants. Medicago Inc. said Tuesday it is licensing its system for making vaccine in tobacco to Philip Morris Products SA, which will develop, test and, it hopes, market the products in China, where it already sells a much different item - Marlboro cigarettes. A vaccine against the H5N1 bird flu – which first raised concerns about a pandemic – could be on the market by 2013, a seasonal flu vaccine a few years after that, said Andy Sheldon, Medicago's chief executive. [Obusha and RMoney plan to slash Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid -- but yet, there's $21 million available to give to cancer pimps Philip Morris to manufacture deadly vaccines for China?]

Jerry McDermott, Brown's State Director and Jennifer Franks, Special Assistant to Senator Scott Brown were also shown in the video at the rally, NewsCenter 5 confirmed.

Iran sends toy drone to Obama 29 Jan 2012 Iran is sending a U.S. drone it captured in December home - with a small makeover. Mocking requests to return the drone, a local toy company plans to send a miniature pink model of the RQ-170 Sentinel to U.S. President Barack Obama. (Soundbite) (Farsi) HEAD OF CULTURAL DEPARTMENT OF 'AAYE' COMPANY, SEYYED SAEED HASSAN-POUR, saying: "We wanted for Mr. Obama himself to have these toys and know that Iranians don't leave anyone's requests unanswered. We made the 'RQ' in pink as it is Mr. Obama's favourite colour and we will send it to him via the Swiss embassy on Bahman 12 (February 1)." [I want one of those toy drones!]

US Marines face courts martial over urinating on three bloodied corpses --Marines also charged with dereliction of duty for number of other command failures 24 Sep 2012 Two US Marines will face trial by courts martial for urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban fighters in Afghanistan and posing for photographs with them. The charges against Staff Sergeants Joseph Chamblin and Edward Deptola come a month after three other Marines were sanctioned administratively for their role in the July 27, 2011 incident in Afghanistan’s Helmand province. A videotape that surfaced on the internet in January showed four US troops urinating on three bloodied corpses, and one of the men, apparently aware he was being filmed, saying: "Have a great day, buddy," to one of the dead.
