December 2, 2011 by legitgov

Obama lights National Christmas Tree near White House 01 Dec 2011 The sights and sounds swirling around Thursday's annual lighting of the National Christmas Tree rang of the yuletide traditions of yore: a security sweep in the afternoon, the jazzy stylings of a military band, attendees milling about with their hands wrapped around steaming cups of hot chocolate. For the first time in 33 years, the Colorado blue spruce illuminating President's Park has been replaced, according to National Park Service spokesman Bill Line. The old evergreen was toppled by 60-mph winds in February, Line said.

An hourlong power outage at Los Angeles International Airport forced nearly two dozen inbound commercial flights to divert to other airports, and flight delays lingered even after electricity was restored, LAX spokeswoman Nancy Castles said.

December 2, 2011 by legitgov

Americans not immune if they act against U.S: CIA 01 Dec 2011 American citizens are not immune from being treated like an enemy if they take up arms against the United States, the CIA general counsel said on Thursday. CIA General Counsel Stephen Preston was responding to a question at an American Bar Association national security conference about the killing of Americans overseas without presenting evidence of wrongdoing. A CIA drone strike killed Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born cleric linked to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, earlier this year.

December 2, 2011 by legitgov

Gingrich Tells ABC News: 'I'm Going to Be the Nominee' 01 Dec 2011 A very confident New Gingrich asserted to ABC News Thursday afternoon that he will be the Republican presidential nominee. "I'm going to be the nominee," the former Speaker told ABC News. "It's very hard not to look at the recent polls and think that the odds are very high I'm going to be the nominee." The bold assertion came after Gingrich refused to criticize the Republican challengers who have begun attacking him and his record.

December 2, 2011 by legitgov

'FBI spies, compiles info on Muslims' 01 Dec 2011 A US rights organization has accused the FBI of 'illegally' spying and compiling information on Muslim community groups under the guise of holding outreach meetings with the groups' representatives. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been misusing its Community Outreach Program, intended to improve the relationship between the bureau and the Muslims, for the purpose, the Associated Press reported on Thursday. Agents, who attend the events, are instructed to file reports for, what the FBI described, as 'internal oversight purposes.'

NATO attack threatens war on militants: Pakistan 01 Dec 2011 Pakistan, enraged by a NATO cross-border attack that killed 24 soldiers, could end support for the U.S.-led war on of militancy if its sovereignty is violated again, the foreign minister said, warning that "enough is enough." The South Asian nation has already shown its anger over the weekend strike by pulling out of an international conference in Germany next week on Afghanistan. "Enough is enough. The government will not tolerate any incident of spilling even a single drop of any civilian or soldier's blood," The News newspaper on Thursday quoted Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar as telling a Senate committee on foreign affairs.

Former top Israeli general says explosions that reportedly hit Iranian nuclear sites not accidents

December 1, 2011 by legitgov

Former top Israeli general says explosions that reportedly hit Iranian nuclear sites not accidents 30 Nov 2011 Israeli officials said in a report Wednesday that a mysterious explosion at an Iranian nuclear facility two days ago was no accident. The remarks surfaced in a Times of London story reporting that satellite images show smoke billowing from the uranium enrichment facility in the city of Isfahan. "There aren't many coincidences," retired Major-General Giora Eiland told Israel's army radio, noting that it was the second attack on an Iranian nuclear site in a month. "When there are so many events, there is probably some sort of guiding hand, though perhaps it's the hand of God," said Eiland, who is Israel's former national security chief. ['Hand of God' or 'work of a sociopath.' I'm stickin' with the latter. --LRP]

Man-made flu virus with potential to wipe out many millions is created in research lab

Man-made flu virus with potential to wipe out many millions is created in research lab --'Anthrax isn't scary at all compared to this' --Just five tweaks to H5N1 makes it more contagious 28 Nov 2011 A group of scientists is pushing to publish research about how they created a man-made flu virus that could potentially wipe out civilisation. The deadly virus is a genetically tweaked version of the H5N1 bird flu strain, but is far more infectious and could pass easily between millions of people at a time. There are fears that the modified virus is so dangerous it could be used for bio-warfare, if it falls into the wrong hands [such as USociopaths and pharma-terrorists, who are *dying* to get an avian flu pandemic started].

Davis, whereabouts unclear, to face murder charges in the death of freelance journalist Charles Horman. 30 Nov 2011 A Chilean judge is seeking the extradition of a former U.S. military officer to face murder charges in the 1973 slaying of freelance journalist and filmmaker Charles Horman, a case dramatized in the Oscar-winning film "Missing," court sources confirmed Tuesday. Judge Jorge Zepeda wants former U.S. Navy Capt. Ray E. Davis, whose whereabouts were not immediately clear Tuesday, to face trial in Chile for his alleged involvement in the deaths of Horman and U.S. student Frank Teruggi.

Fukushima No. 1 reactor core melted completely, nearing full 'China Syndrome' scenario

Fukushima No. 1 reactor core melted completely, nearing full 'China Syndrome' scenario 30 Nov 2011 The stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant came a lot closer to a full "China Syndrome" meltdown than previous company analyses had indicated, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said Wednesday. The nuclear fuel rods in reactor No. 1 likely melted completely, TEPCO and the Japanese government said for the first time -- burning a hole through one surrounding vessel and eating through up to three-quarters of the concrete base at the bottom of a second containment vessel meant as a last barrier between the radioactive core and the outside world. That brought the fuel closer than previously believed to breaching the containment vessel and continuing to burn through the ground below -- a catastrophic scenario sometimes described as the "China Syndrome," from the notion popularized in a US film by the same name, that in a catastrophic meltdown, molten reactor fuel could sink through the earth until it reached China.

Los Angeles police dismantle Occupy protesters' tents 30 Nov 2011 More than 100 Los Angeles police officers, including dozens in white protective suits, surrounded the Occupy L.A. camp on the City Hall lawn early Wednesday and began to dismantle tents and other shelters.

You have seven minutes to gather your belongings and decide to leave," one officer said. Dozens of Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics and firefighters were also standing by on sealed off downtown streets. "This is what a police state looks like!" Occupy protesters chanted at the officers in riot gear.

Senate OKs Gov't to Keep US Citizens in Military Custody, Indefinitely and Without Trial

November 30, 2011 by legitgov

Senate OKs Gov't to Keep US Citizens in Military Custody, Indefinitely and Without Trial 30 Nov 2011 Defying the Obama administration's threat of a veto [Yeah, right!], the Senate on Tuesday voted to increase the role of the military in imprisoning suspected members of 'Al Qaeda' and its allies -- including people arrested inside the United States. By a vote of 61 to 37, the Senate turned back an effort to strip a major military bill of a set of disputed provisions affecting the handling of terrorism cases. The most disputed provision would require the government to place into military custody any suspected member of Al Qaeda or one of its allies connected to a plot against the United States or its allies. A related provision would create a federal statute saying the government has the legal authority to keep people suspected of terrorism in military custody, indefinitely and without trial. It contains no exception for American citizens. [Start reading. Arming the Left: Is the time now?

Army Wants Grenade 'Bots to Fly, Spy, Then Kill

Army Wants Grenade 'Bots to Fly, Spy, Then Kill 29 Nov 2011 In their new round of small business solicitations, top military brass are asking for proposals that would yield what amounts to a very deadly grenade-drone love child. Or, as the Army's calling it, "A Hovering Tube-Launched Micromunition." Already, the Army's made some impressive advances where grenade munitions are concerned. Last year, they ordered hundreds of "Men in Black" grenade launchers, capable of shooting "smart" grenades loaded with sensors and microchips that communicate with a guidance system. And, used in surveillance for years, drones are now getting loaded with missiles -- or, as the newly developed Switchblade Drone illustrates, turning into missiles themselves.

In a letter to lawmakers, Mueller detailed his concerns with the provision that mandates military custody of a suspect deemed to be a member of al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] or its affiliates and involved in plotting or committing attacks on the United States.
