Steam seen at Fukushima reactors: TEPCO

Steam seen at Fukushima reactors: TEPCO 13 Sep 2013 Vapour has begun rising again from a reactor at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, more than two-and-a-half years after its core melted down, the site's Japanese operator said Friday. Tokyo Electric Power said it believed the steam was coming from a puddle sitting atop the reactor, but has not been able to clarify why vapour started appearing occasionally from July this year. The steam appeared as TEPCO found more evidence that radioactive waste water at the plant was contaminating groundwater that is on its way to the sea.

Israel not to ratify chemical arms treaty before Arab neighbors

Israel not to ratify chemical arms treaty before Arab neighbors 12 Sep 2013 Israel will not ratify the Chemical Weapons Convention as long as its Arab neighbors hold chemical weapons, an Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman told Xinhua on Thursday. As Russia and the United States push forward a diplomatic move to disarm Syria of its chemical weapons, Israel is aware of the possibility that international organizations would turn a similar request to it, too. Israel has signed the Chemical Weapons Convention in 1993, but not ratified it. The Foreign Ministry says recently that Israel would not bring the treaty for a final vote in the Knesset, a necessary procedure for its ratification.

U.S. total of Syrian gas deaths could include bomb casualties - sources

U.S. total of Syrian gas deaths could include bomb casualties - sources 12 Sep 2013 One of the most precise and dramatic details cited by the Obama administration as proof that Syrian forces used chemical weapons in an August 21 attack was the death toll, which an official U.S. government assessment put at 1,429 people, including 426 children. Some U.S. congressional sources are now casting doubt on those figures. Three congressional sources told Reuters that administration officials had indicated in private that some deaths might have been caused by the conventional bombing that followed the release of sarin gas in suburban Damascus neighborhoods.

Man gets 3 years for hacking police websites

Man gets 3 years for hacking police websites 12 Sep 2013 A 22-year-old Ohio man linked to the hacker collective Anonymous was sentenced Thursday to three years in federal prison for breaking into police-agency websites across the country. Court records say John Anthony Borell III used Twitter to advertise his exploits to other members of the group. He was arrested after taking down police-agency websites in Utah, California, New York and Missouri in January and February of 2012.

Colorado Deluge 'Could be Classified as 1,000-Year Event'

Colorado Deluge 'Could be Classified as 1,000-Year Event' 12 Sep 2013 The Satellite Blog of the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies has just posted some dramatic remote sensing imagery of the continuing deluge here in Colorado. And in the explanation of what's been happening, the author of the post, Scott Lindstrom, concluded that the extraordinary amount of rainfall we've experienced here in the Boulder area "could be classified as a 1,000-year event." Make no mistake about it: The rainfall has simply been astonishing -- upwards of 12 inches in less than 24 hours in some locations near Boulder.

Russia sends missile cruiser to Mediterranean as Syria tension mounts

Russia sends missile cruiser to Mediterranean as Syria tension mounts --Country's biggest naval deployment since USSR days sent to sea's east as US also beefs up maritime presence in region 12 Sep 2013 Russia has dispatched a "carrier killer" missile cruiser and other ships to the eastern Mediterranean in its largest naval deployment since Soviet times. Both Russia and the US have been beefing up their naval presence in the Med over the past several weeks. The destroyer Smetlivy left a naval base in Sevastopol, Ukraine, on Tuesday on a mission to the Syrian coast, a military source told the state news agency Interfax on Thursday.

Huge car bomb explodes outside US consulate in western Afghanistan 12 Sep 2013 There has been a huge car bomb explosion outside the US consulate in Herat in western Afghanistan. Taliban insurgents say a suicide bomber detonated explosives, and other fighters tried to attack the complex. There are reports of ongoing fighting near the building.

Egypt extends state of emergency by two months

Egypt extends state of emergency by two months --Egyptian security forces have been cracking down on the Muslim Brotherhood, smashing its protests in Cairo, killing hundreds of members and jailing the movement's top leaders. Sep 2013 Egypt extended a state of emergency by two months on Thursday because of the security situation, the presidency US-installed puppet dictatorship said in a statement. The most populous Arab state has been gripped by political turmoil since the army overthrew Islamist President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood on July 3. A week ago the interior minister survived an assassination attempt in Cairo. The government originally announced a one-month state of emergency on August 14 and Thursday's announcement extended the order, which covers the whole country, to mid November.

Syrian rebel groups sought to buy materials for chemical weapons, prosecutors say

Syrian rebel groups sought to buy materials for chemical weapons, prosecutors say 12 Sep 2013 A public prosecutor completed his indictment as part of the probe into the chemicals seized in the southern province of Hatay on Sept. 12, claiming that jihadist Syrian rebel groups were seeking to buy materials that could be used to produce highly toxic sarin gas. The indictment, which included transcripts of several phone conversations between the suspects involved, said that a 35-year-old Syrian citizen, identified as Hytham Qassap, established a connection with a network in Turkey in order to procure chemical materials for the al-Nusra Front and jihadist Ahrar al-Sham Brigades. The indictment rejected the legitimacy of the suspects' claim that they were unaware the chemicals they tried to obtain could be used to produce sarin gas.

A Plea for Caution From Russia

A Plea for Caution From Russia By Vladimir V. Putin 11 Sep 2013 Recent events surrounding Syria have prompted me to speak directly to the American people and their political leaders. It is important to do so at a time of insufficient communication between our societies... Under current international law, force is permitted only in self-defense or by the decision of the Security Council. Anything else is unacceptable under the United Nations Charter and would constitute an act of aggression. No one doubts that poison gas was used in Syria. But there is every reason to believe it was used not by the Syrian Army, but by opposition forces, to provoke intervention by their powerful foreign patrons, who would be siding with the fundamentalists. Reports that militants are preparing another attack -- this time against Israel -- cannot be ignored.

The Koch brothers' secret bank

The Koch brothers' secret bank 11 Sep 2013 An Arlington, Va.-based conservative group, whose existence until now was unknown to almost everyone in politics, raised and spent $250 million in 2012 to shape political and policy debate [and steal elections] nationwide. The group, Freedom Partners, and its president, Marc Short, serve as an outlet for the ideas and funds of the mysterious Koch brothers, cutting checks as large as $63 million to groups promoting conservative causes, according to an IRS document to be filed shortly. The group has about 200 donors, each paying at least $100,000 in annual dues. It raised $256 million in the year after its creation in November 2011, the document shows. And it made grants of $236 million -- meaning a totally unknown group was the largest sugar daddy for conservative groups in the last election.

U.S. troops oppose strikes on Syria by 3-1 margin

U.S. troops oppose strikes on Syria by 3-1 margin 11 Sep 2013 To the list of skeptics who question the need for air strikes against Syria, add an another unlikely group -- many U.S. troops. "I haven't heard one single person be supportive of it," said an Army staff sergeant at Fort Hood who asked not to be identified by name. A Military Times survey of more than 750 active-duty troops this week found service members oppose military action in Syria by a margin of about three to one.

'Scumbag' Petraeus heckled by New York students after teaching college seminar

'Scumbag' Petraeus heckled by New York students after teaching college seminar 12 Sep 2013 It could be a long semester for David Petraeus. The retired four-star general and former CIA director -- whose career ended in scandal last year -- was heckled by roughly a dozen protesters following his first lecture at the City University of New York's Macaulay Honors College on Monday, according to a 90-second video posted online Wednesday that has been viewed more than 100,000 times. Petraeus, was also blasted as a "scumbag" and a "war criminal" by the angry group. The heckling became so intense at one point that Petraeus walked into the street and dodged oncoming traffic -- including a city bus -- as his critics closely followed. Several in the crowd promised to harass Petraeus after "every class" at the public university [Sweet!], while another demanded that he "leave." "He's a war criminal, there's a war criminal right here," another protester said. "He deserves to be tried."

CIA begins delivering weapons to Syrian 'rebels'

CIA begins delivering weapons to Syrian 'rebels' 11 Sep 2013 The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to U.S. officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear -- a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the U.S. role in Syria's civil war. The arms shipments, which are limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked [Yeah, right!], began arriving in Syria at a moment of heightened tensions over threats by President Obama to order missile strikes to punish the regime of Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in a deadly attack near Damascus last month.

US pastor arrested before he could burn 2,998 Korans on anniversary of 9-11 attacks

US pastor arrested before he could burn 2,998 Korans on anniversary of 9/11 attacks 12 Sep 2013 US law enforcement officers have arrested a Florida pastor on his way to a park to set fire to nearly 3,000 Korans in protest over the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Sheriff's deputies arrested Pastor Terry Jones, 61, and his associate pastor, Marvin Sapp Jr, 34, on felony charges as he drove a pickup truck towing a large barbecue-style grill filled with Koran soaked in kerosene. He had said he was heading to a nearby park to burn 2,998 Korans - one for every victim of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

An Interesting Day: President [sic] Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

An Interesting Day: President [sic] Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11 --After Andrew Card told George W. Bush about the second plane and quickly left, the classroom was silent for about 30 seconds or so. [Tampa Tribune, 9/1/02] The children were about to take turns reading from a story called The Pet Goat. [AFP, 9/7/02] Bush picked up the book and began to read with the children. [Tampa Tribune, 9/1/02] In unison, the children read out loud, "The--Pet--Goat. A--girl--got--a--pet--goat. But--the--goat--did--some--things--that--made--the--girl's--dad--mad." Bush mostly listened, but occasionally asked the children a few questions to encourage them. [Washington Times, 10/7/02] At one point he said, "Really good readers, whew!...These must be sixth-graders!" [Time, 9/12/01]

NSA shares raw intelligence including Americans' data with Israel

NSA shares raw intelligence including Americans' data with Israel --Secret deal places no legal limits on use of data by Israelis --Only official US government communications protected --Agency insists it complies with rules governing privacy 11 Sep 2013 The National Security Agency routinely shares raw intelligence data with Israel without first sifting it to remove information about US citizens, a top-secret document provided to the Guardian by whistleblower Edward Snowden reveals. Details of the intelligence-sharing agreement are laid out in a memorandum of understanding between the NSA and its Israeli counterpart that shows the US government handed over intercepted communications likely to contain phone calls and emails of American citizens. The agreement places no legally binding limits on the use of the data by the Israelis. The disclosure that the NSA agreed to provide raw intelligence data to a foreign country contrasts with assurances from the Obama administration that there are rigorous safeguards to protect the privacy of US citizens caught in the dragnet.

Pro-Syrian opposition 'analyst' fired for lying about credentials

US backed 'rebels:' Cannibals, war criminals, murderers... and liars. Pro-Syrian opposition 'analyst' fired for lying about credentials 11 Sep 2013 A Washington scholar [sic] whose writings on Syria were touted by top U.S. officials in making the case for a military strike has been fired from the Institute for the Study of War for allegedly lying about her education credentials. The development comes after Elizabeth O'Bagy's credibility and objectivity had come under scrutiny over her work with a Syrian opposition advocacy group. The institute, where she had worked as a senior analyst, on Wednesday posted a terse statement on its website claiming she also misled the organization about having a Ph.D.

N. Korea may be restarting plutonium reactor - Report

N. Korea may be restarting plutonium reactor - Report --Satellite image shows steam coming from plant shut down in 2007 11 Sep 2013 North Korea may be restarting a nuclear reactor that could produce weapons-grade plutonium, U.S. researchers reported Wednesday. An Aug. 31 commercial satellite photo shows what appears to be steam coming from a building at the Yongbyon complex, the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies said in a report shared with the Associated Press. [Here we go again. When the US and Israel shut *their* nuclear reactors, North Korea can then be asked to shutter theirs. Until then, I don't want to hear one word about it from the hypocritical sociopaths running the US government and/or the corpora-terrorists who own the lamestream media. --LRP]

Save Sea Turtles from Deadly Guatemala Shrimp Trawls

Save Sea Turtles from Deadly Guatemala Shrimp Trawls 11 Sep 2013 This summer, we experienced the worst sea turtle stranding in the history of Guatemala. Eighty five turtles were found dead on Pacific beaches in the southeast of the country when shrimp trawling boats were fishing nearby. We, the undersigned, request the permanent cancellation of operating licenses for shrimp trawling boats in Guatemala to protect endangered sea turtles and support the sustainability of marine fisheries on which marginalizes coastal communities depend.

UN team finds no proof on chemical weapons in Syria

UN team finds no proof on chemical weapons in Syria --UN team also charged that anti-government groups 'committed war crimes,' including murder, torture and hostage-taking' 12 Sep 2013 United Nations investigators have listed a wide range of crimes against humanity and war crimes committed in Syria, but provided no conclusion on the issue of chemical weapons use. "On the evidence currently available, it was not possible to reach a finding about the chemical agents used, their delivery systems or the perpetrators," the team probing human rights violations in Syria said in its latest report on Wednesday. It was clear however that "the majority of casualties result from unlawful attacks using conventional weapons," the Commission of Inquiry on Syria said in a statement.

Feds Stalked Airline Passenger Lists to Catch Manning's Friend, Documents Show

Feds Stalked Airline Passenger Lists to Catch Manning's Friend, Documents Show 10 Sep 2013 Federal agents entered the name of a friend of Chelsea Manning into a government watchlist database and waited months for him to leave the country for vacation just so they could nab him when he returned to seize his digital devices, according to documents released this week in a lawsuit. Even though authorities had already questioned David Maurice House after the arrest of former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning (formerly Bradley Manning) in May 2010, House was placed on the watchlist so that authorities could seize his digital media when he returned to the country, under a law that allows warrantless border searches. The documents indicate House was wanted for questioning in relation to the leak of classified material, even though he had already been questioned. Border agents were ordered to conduct a full secondary screening of him and his bags and to "secure digital media" and "ID all companions" with him.

Hijack 'suspects' alive and well

Hijack 'suspects' alive and well 23 Sep 2001 Another of the men named by the FBI as a hijacker in the suicide attacks on Washington and New York has turned up alive and well. [Gee, I hate when that happens.] The identities of four of the 19 suspects accused of having carried out the attacks are now in doubt. Saudi Arabian pilot Waleed Al Shehri was one of five men that the FBI said had deliberately crashed American Airlines flight 11 into the World Trade Centre on 11 September. His photograph was released, and has since appeared in newspapers and on television around the world. Now he is protesting his innocence from Casablanca, Morocco.

De Blasio First in Mayoral Primary; Unclear if He Avoids a Runoff

De Blasio First in Mayoral Primary; Unclear if He Avoids a Runoff 10 Sep 2013 Bill de Blasio, whose campaign for mayor of New York tapped into a city's deepening unease with income inequality and aggressive police practices, captured far more votes than any of his rivals in the Democratic primary on Tuesday, according to exit poll results. But even as Mr. de Blasio, an activist-turned-operative and now the New York City public advocate, celebrated a remarkable come-from-behind surge, it was not immediately clear if he had won the 40 percent needed to avoid a runoff with William C. Thompson Jr., the apparent second-place finisher, according to the exit poll.

Date Set for New Indictment in Blackwater Shooting

Date Set for New Indictment in Blackwater Shooting 10 Sep 2013 A judge on Tuesday gave federal prosecutors until next month to present a new indictment against former Blackwater Worldwide security contractors mercenaries accused in a 2007 shooting of Iraqi civilians. U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth set an Oct. 21 date for a new indictment against the guards. Prosecutors said they had essentially finished presenting evidence, including 1,500 pages of transcripts, to a grand jury but the charging decisions require review by multiple Justice Department officials. They said they planned to make an announcement by Nov. 7, but Lamberth demanded a decision before then.

President Obama's Remarks on Syria

President Obama's Remarks on Syria 11 Sep 2013 Following is the complete text of President Obama's speech about Syria from the East Room of the White House on Tuesday, as transcribed by Federal News Service.

Obama Asks Congress to Delay Vote on Syria Strikes

Obama Asks Congress to Delay Vote on Syria Strikes 11 Sep 2013 President Obama, facing an almost certain defeat in obtaining Congressional support for a military strike against Syria, made the case for that strike to the nation on Tuesday night, but said he would give serious consideration to a proposal by Russia that international monitors take over and destroy Syria's [alleged] arsenal of chemical weapons. Mr. Obama, in a speech delivered at the White House, said he had asked Congressional leaders to postpone a vote to authorize the use of force while he pursued what he described as "this diplomatic path," even while making the moral case for punishing Syria for its deadly use of chemical weapons. On Capitol Hill, at the United Nations and in foreign capitals, officials flocked to endorse Russia's proposal as an alternative to involving the United States in the two-and-a-half-year-old civil war in Syria.

White House ramps up 9/11 security measures, citing Benghazi

White House ramps up 9/11 security measures, citing Benghazi 10 Sep 2013 The White House on Tuesday said it had ordered heightened security of U.S. facilities abroad on the September 11 anniversary, citing the attack that killed four U.S. government employees in Benghazi, Libya, last year. "The president's national security team is taking measures to prevent 9/11-related attacks and to ensure the protection of U.S. persons and facilities abroad," the White House said in a statement. President Barack Obama's counterterrorism aide Lisa Monaco has been in charge of reviewing security measures in place for the anniversary, the White House said.

Polar bear dies at North Carolina Zoo

Polar bear dies at North Carolina Zoo 10 Sep 2013 A polar bear who has lived at the N.C. Zoo for 19 years died suddenly sometime overnight Tuesday, according to zoo officials.

Obama vows to explore diplomatic route on Syria chemical weapons

Obama vows to explore diplomatic route on Syria chemical weapons 10 Sep 2013 U.S. President Barack Obama vowed to pursue a diplomatic initiative from Russia over Syria's [alleged] chemical weapons on Tuesday but voiced skepticism about it and urged war-weary Americans to support his threat to use military force. Obama said a Russian offer to push Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to place chemical weapons under international control opened up the possibility of heading off the type of limited military strike he is considering against Syria. Speaking from the White House's East Room, Obama said U.S. and Russian officials would keep talking about the initiative and that he would discuss it with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Meanwhile, Obama said, he has asked the U.S. Senate to put off a vote on his request for an authorization of military force to let the diplomacy play out.
