Assange Lashes Back at Mayawati

September 7, 2011 by legitgov

Assange Lashes Back at Mayawati 07 Sep 2011 Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, didn't take kindly to Kumari Mayawati's words that he should be sent to a mental asylum. So Mr. Assange lashed back. Leaked U.S. diplomatic cables recently released by WikiLeaks called Ms. Mayawati, the chief minister of India's state of Uttar Pradesh, unkind things like a "paranoid dictator" and "corrupt." She denied all of this, saying that the leaked cables were "baseless" and politically motivated. She took it all out on Mr. Assange, even suggesting he should be institutionalized in Agra's mental asylum, in her home state. It didn't take long for Mr. Assange to respond in tone.

Mayawati: WikiLeaks Founder Should Be Sent to Mental Asylum 06 Sep 2011 Kumari Mayawati, the chief minister of India’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, launched a scathing attack on Web site WikiLeaks Tuesday, a day after a leaked U.S. diplomatic cable claimed she once sent an empty private jet to Mumbai to fetch her favorite brand of sandals... Tuesday, the fuming chief minister strongly condemned the cable and said that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be institutionalized. "Mr. Assange should be sent to mental asylum by the country he belongs to and in case if there was no place for him, he should be sent to Uttar Pradesh. We will put him in the Agra mental asylum," she said during a television press conference in the state capital Lucknow.

Plan Would Keep Military in Iraq Beyond Deadline

September 7, 2011 by legitgov

Plan Would Keep Military in Iraq Beyond Deadline 07 Sep 2011 Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta is supporting a plan that would keep 3,000 to 4,000 American troops in Iraq after a deadline for their withdrawal at year's end, but only to continue training security forces there, a senior military official said on Tuesday. The recommendation would break a longstanding pledge by President Obama to withdraw all American forces from Iraq by the deadline, but would still involve significantly fewer forces than proposals presented at the Pentagon in recent weeks by the senior American commander in Iraq, Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III to keep as many as 14,000 to 18,000 troops there. [Primary Obusha in 2012.]

Medieval torture systems, including a stretching rack, uncovered in Afghan jails --Nato stops sending prisoners to Afghan jails over torture fears 06 Sep 2011 Nato has suspended the transfer of detainees to some Afghan jails after fears they were being subjected to systematic torture, British defence officials have said. The directive, issued this week, comes ahead of the imminent release of a UN report into detainees prisoners that is expected to be highly critical of the Afghan police... The report is understood to outline how prisoners are routinely beaten, given electric shocks and subjected to other human rights violations, some within private jails run by police commanders. Separate research by human rights observers has uncovered medieval-like torture systems, including a stretching rack. [Yes, this must be the 'change we can believe in' - rack-stretching instead of waterboarding!]

Obama ratings sink to new lows as hope fades 06 Sep 2011 Public pessimism about the direction of the country has jumped to its highest level in nearly three years, erasing the sense of hope that followed President Obama's inauguration and pushing his approval ratings to a record low, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Just 43 percent now approve of the job he is doing overall, a new career low; 53 percent disapprove, a new high.

A group of Turkish tourists, who arrived in Israel for the holiday of Ramadan and visited Jerusalem, said that when they arrived at the airport, Israeli security personnel delayed them for several hours and ask them for personal details, including their phone numbers, email addresses, and marital status.

Dozens of Israelis questioned at length upon landing in Turkey --Israeli passengers authorities at Istanbul airport humiliated them and made them undress to their underwear; Officials in Ankara say Turkish tourists subjected to same treatment evening before at Israel airport. 05 Sep 2011 Some 40 Israelis on board a Turkish Airlines flight from Tel Aviv to Istanbul were separated from the rest of the passengers upon arrival in Turkey on Monday and were questioned at length by Turkish police, marking a highly unusual event against the backdrop of a deepening diplomatic crisis between Turkey and Israel.

[Well, Turkey needs to know if there's a CIA-MI5-MOSSAD psychopath in the group, waiting to carry out a(nother) false flag.]

U.S. Eyes Covert Activity in Iraq via Classified Presidential 'Finding'

U.S. Eyes Covert Activity in Iraq via Classified Presidential 'Finding' 06 Sep 2011 Military commanders and intelligence officers are pushing for greater authority to conduct covert operations to thwart [alleged] Iranian influence in neighboring Iraq, according to U.S. officials. Compounding the urgency is [desperate to avoid] the planned reduction in the U.S. military presence in Iraq by the end of the year, a development that many fear will open up the country to more influence from Iran. If the request is approved by the White House, the authorization for the covert activity in Iraq likely would take the form of a classified presidential "finding."

U.S. Eavesdropped on Israeli Embassy in Washington

September 6, 2011 by legitgov

U.S. Eavesdropped on Israeli Embassy in Washington 06 Sep 2011 When Shamai K. Leibowitz, an F.B.I. translator, was sentenced to 20 months in prison last year for leaking classified information to a blogger, prosecutors revealed little about the case. The reason for the extraordinary secrecy surrounding the Obama administration's first prosecution for leaking information to the news media seems clear: Mr. Leibowitz, a contract Hebrew translator, passed on secret transcripts of conversations caught on F.B.I. wiretaps of the Israeli Embassy in Washington. Former counterintelligence officials describe Israeli intelligence operations in the United States as quite extensive, ranking just below those of China and Russia, and F.B.I. counterintelligence agents have long kept an eye on Israeli spying.

Hoffa Threatens GOP At Obama Event: "Take These Son of Bitches Out" 05 Sep 2011 Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa had some profane, combative words for Republicans while warming up the crowd for President Obama [R-Closeted] in Detroit, Michigan on Monday. "We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war...." Jimmy Hoffa Jr. said to a heavily union crowd. "President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong," Hoffa added. [Obama's 'army?' LOL! Obama's 'army' consists of GE, Bank of America, Xe and Monsanto! Notice how Obusha took the side of Governor Scott Walker (R) in Wisconsin? Obama's campaign strategy is to warm up the sheeple to accept Tea Party 'solutions' -- including the decimation of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security -- so that Obama and his Super Dictatorship can continue the Bush giveaway of the US Treasury to the corpora-terrorists. --LRP]

False flag alert: IDF general: Likelihood of regional war growing, could prompt use of WMDs 05 Sep 2011 Recent revolutions in the Arab world and the deteriorating ties with Turkey are raising the likelihood of a regional war in the Middle East, IDF Home Front Command Chief, Major General Eyal Eisenberg warned Monday.

Major-General Eisenberg said: "This raises the likelihood of an all-out, total war, with the possibility of weapons of mass destruction being used."

Judge blocks parts of Texas abortion law on sonograms

September 5, 2011 by legitgov

Judge blocks parts of Texas abortion law on sonograms 30 Aug 2011 A federal judge temporarily blocked key provisions of a Texas abortion law on Tuesday that would require women seeking the procedure to view a sonogram and listen to the heartbeat of their fetus. The law, which had been due to go into effect on Thursday, was a major part of Republican Governor and presidential candidate [and lunatic] Rick Perry's agenda in this year's Texas legislative session. But the judge, in a victory for abortion rights activists, ruled in a preliminary injunction that there was cause to believe such a requirement was an unconstitutional burden on doctors.

Obama Caves, Abandons Proposal to Improve National Air Quality

Obama Caves, Abandons Proposal to Improve National Air Quality By Brian Merchant 02 Sep 2011 Congressional Republicans have been complaining relentlessly (and rather baselessly) that tightening smog standards, as Obama's EPA has sought to do, would cripple the economy. Studies have indicated that those improved anti-air pollution standards would have saved tens of thousands of lives every year, and prevented innumerable cases of lung disease, asthma, and other respiratory illnesses. However, Obama has caved to the GOP's demands: he announced today that he was abandoning his effort to secure cleaner and healthier air for the American public.

Ex-Blackwater guards kept working in Iraq: US cable

September 5, 2011 by legitgov

Ex-Blackwater guards kept working in Iraq: US cable 04 Sep 2011 A leaked US diplomatic cable says that "hundreds" of former mercenaries of Blackwater, which was barred from Iraq over a deadly 2007 shooting, later worked with other firms guarding US diplomats here. Iraq announced in January 2009 that it would not renew Blackwater's operating licence due to a September 16, 2007 incident in which guards opened fire in Baghdad's busy Nisoor Square, killing at least 14 civilians. After that announcement, the US State Department did not renew its contract with Blackwater, which has renamed itself Xe, for security services in Iraq. But US diplomatic cables released by whistleblower website WikiLeaks confirm that ex-Blackwater mercenaries kept working in Iraq with other security firms.

Postal Service Is Nearing Default as Losses Mount

Postal Service Is Nearing Default as Losses Mount 05 Sep 2011 The United States Postal Service is so low on cash that it will not be able to make a $5.5 billion payment due this month and may have to shut down entirely this winter unless Congress takes emergency action to stabilize its finances. The postmaster general, Patrick R. Donahoe Mr. Donahoe has been pushing a series of painful cost-cutting union-busting measures to erase the agency’s deficit, which will reach $9.2 billion this fiscal year. They include eliminating Saturday mail delivery, closing up to 3,700 postal locations and laying off 120,000 workers -- nearly one-fifth of the agency's work force -- despite a no-layoffs clause in the unions’ contracts.
