Buh-bye: US told to leave Shamsi airbase 30 Jun 2011 Pakistan told the United States to leave a remote desert airbase used as a hub for covert CIA drone attacks, Defence Minister Ahmed Mukhtar said Wednesday. His remarks are the latest indication of Pakistan attempting to limit US activities since a clandestine American military raid killed 'Osama bin Laden' on May 2 and plunged ties between the anti-terror allies into chaos. "We have told them (US officials) to leave the airbase," Mukhtar told a group of journalists in his office.

6th Circuit panel upholds individual mandate

June 30, 2011 by legitgov

6th Circuit panel upholds individual mandate --Court approves GOP/Obama plan to force people to buy overpriced health insurance 29 Jun 2011 The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday upheld the health reform law's controversial requirement that nearly all U.S. citizens buy insurance [with no cost controls], marking a significant win for President Barack Obama in the legal battles over his signature [albeit useless] legislation. The ruling by a three-judge panel -- 2-1 in favor of the mandate -- is the first from an appeals court on the constitutionality of the law. Jeffrey S. Sutton, a George W. Bush nominee and a former clerk for Justice Antonin Scalia, is the first Republican-nominated judge to rule in favor of upholding the mandate. [LOL. In its zeal to side with any and all corpora-terrorists, the High Wh*re Court will similarly support the insurance cartel -- even if their decision backs Barack Obama.]

Testing of air for radiation continues near wildfire

June 30, 2011 by legitgov

Testing of air for radiation continues near wildfire 30 Jun 2011 As crews fight to keep a New Mexico wildfire from reaching the nation's premier nuclear-weapons laboratory and the surrounding community, scientists are busy sampling the air for chemicals and radiological materials. There are dozens of monitors on the ground, and a "flying laboratory" sent by the Environmental Protection Agency that can collect detailed samples. The blaze has grown to more than 108 square miles, but firefighters have managed to hold the line along the nuclear lab's southern boundary.

Cost of US wars since 9/11? At least $3.7 trillion, study finds

June 30, 2011 by legitgov

Cost of US wars since 9/11? At least $3.7 trillion, study finds --224,000 people have died directly from warfare and 7.8 million people have been displaced 29 Jun 2011 When President Barack Obama cited cost as a reason to bring troops home from Afghanistan, he referred to a $1 trillion price tag for U.S. wars. That figure grossly underestimates the total cost of wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan to the U.S. Treasury and ignores more imposing costs yet to come, according to a study released Wednesday. The final bill will reach at least $3.7 trillion and could be as high as $4.4 trillion, according to the research project "Costs of War" by Brown University's Watson Institute for International Studies.

Officials: W.Va. Mine Operator Kept Two Sets of Safety Records

June 30, 2011 by legitgov

Officials: W.Va. Mine Operator Kept Two Sets of Safety Records 29 Jun 2011 Federal mine disaster investigators disclosed a few pieces of new information Tuesday night from their year-long look at the April 2010 deadly Upper Big Branch mine explosion. Mine owner Massey Energy kept two sets of records that chronicled safety problems. One internal set of production reports detailed those problems and how they delayed coal production. But the other records, which are reviewed by federal mine safety inspectors and required by federal law, failed to mention the same safety hazards. Some of the hazards that were not disclosed are identical to those believed to have contributed to the explosion...

U.S. counter-terrorism strategy to rely on surgical strikes, unmanned drones

June 30, 2011 by legitgov

U.S. counter-terrorism strategy to rely on surgical strikes, unmanned drones 29 Jun 2011 The Obama administration has concluded in a newly released counter-terrorism strategy that precision strikes and raids, rather than large land wars, are the most effective way to defeat Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh]. "Al Qaeda seeks to bleed us financially by drawing us into long, costly wars that also inflame anti-American sentiment," John Brennan, President Obama's counter-terrorism advisor, said in a speech Wednesday unveiling the new strategy... The strategy codifies policies the administration has been pursuing for 2 1/2 years, and much of it mirrors the practices of the Bush administration, Brennan said.

June 29, 2011 by legitgov

Rhode Island Approves Civil Unions 30 Jun 2011 Less than a week after same-sex marriage was legalized in New York, the Rhode Island State Senate on Wednesday evening approved a bill allowing not marriage, but civil unions for gay couples, despite fierce opposition from gay-rights advocates who called the legislation discriminatory. The bill, which already passed in the state's House of Representatives and which the governor said he was likely to sign, would grant gay and lesbian couples most of the rights and benefits that Rhode Island provides married couples.

France supplying weapons to Libyan 'rebels'

June 29, 2011 by legitgov

France supplying weapons to Libyan 'rebels' 29 Jun 2011 France has begun supplying weapons to the Libyan 'rebels' despite the UN arms embargo, confirming on Wednesday it had dropped assault rifles into the Nafusa Mountains south-west of Tripoli. A French military spokesman, Colonel Thierry Burkhard, said it had provided "light arms such as assault rifles" for civilian communities to "protect themselves against Col Gaddafi". But the decision to arm the 'rebels' is a further move towards direct involvement in the land war on top of the air war against Col Muammar Gaddafi [to steal Libya's oil].

Israel Law Center sues firm for flotilla communications --UK, US based global satellite company Inmarsat allegedly aiding, abetting terrorism by providing satellite services to Gaza-bound ships 29 Jun 2011 In an effort to add to the logistical difficulties of the Free Gaza Flotilla and to try and prevent it from sailing, the Israel Law Center (Shurat HaDin) and New York attorney Isaac Jaroslawicz filed a civil action in the Florida State Court in Miami on Monday against the UK and US based global satellite company Inmarsat, alleging that it is providing essential communications services to ships used by suspected terror organizations in the Gaza flotilla. According to the lawsuit, Inmarsat and its corporate officers were in violation of US criminal statutes prohibiting the provision of material support for acts of violence and terrorism and the provision of material support for naval expeditions against US allies, and would also be held civilly liable for any damages or harm caused by participants in the flotilla.

Towns Near N.M. Fire, Nuclear Lab Fear Radioactive Smoke Plume

June 29, 2011 by legitgov

Towns Near N.M. Fire, Nuclear Lab Fear Radioactive Smoke Plume 29 Jun 2011 Residents downwind of a wildfire that is threatening the nation's premier nuclear-weapons laboratory are worried about the potential of a radioactive smoke plume if the flames reach thousands of barrels of waste stored in above-ground tents. Lab Director Charles McMillan said the barrels contain transuranic waste -- gloves, toolboxes, tools -- and other items that may have been contaminated through contact with radioactive materials. Top lab officials declined to say how many barrels were on site or how they are stored. An anti-nuclear group has estimated there could be up to 30,000 gallon-drums.

The vote was again 5 to 4, with the same five 'justices' in the majority as in the Citizens United decision. The majority said the law violated the First Amendment rights of candidates who raise private money.

US forces 'disappointed' by Iraq freeing bomb suspects 28 Jun 2011 The US military expressed its "disappointment" that an Iraqi court acquitted three men captured as they allegedly tried to place a bomb on a highway south of Baghdad, in a statement received on Tuesday.
