CLG Newsletters 'Blocked' --The CLG Newsletter was sent Sunday afternoon - however, it went *nowhere.* By Lori Price 15 Aug 2011 Another day, another obstacle. (And, since the announcement of SeizeDC!, there has been nothing *but* obstacles.) The CLG Newsletter was sent Sunday; however, it has yet to be disseminated. Even after it is, CLG (http://www.legitgov.org/ and CLG's webhoster?) is getting blocked by various 'filters.' For example, here is a message I received from a bounced CLG Newsletter:

Remote host said: 554 5.7.1 Message contains a link to web host www .presstv .ir listed by name at www.spamhaus.org

In other words, spamhaus.org will block any CLG Newsletters which contain a link from Press TV. If you're not receiving your CLG Newsletter, and you have clg_news@legitgov.org marked as an 'approved sender,' please let us know: webmaster@legitgov.org.

Mushrooms Join Growing List of Radioactive Threats to Japan's Food Chain 14 Aug 2011 Mushrooms joined the threats to Japan's food chain from radiation spewed by Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant.

About two-thirds of Japan's prefectures now plan to check rice crops, the Mainichi newspaper reported yesterday, citing its own survey. Half of Japan's rice is grown within range of emissions from the crippled nuclear plant.

Iraq: US pullout will improve security 14 Aug 2011 Iraq's Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi says a continued US military presence in the country is "a problem, not a solution," adding that their year-end pullout will improve Iraq's security. "The withdrawal of US combat forces will lead to an improvement in the security situation in Iraq by calming the concerns of neighboring countries that felt threatened," al-Hashemi said in a statement released by his office. The Sunday announcement came nearly two weeks after Iraqi leaders agreed to hold open negotiations with the US about possible post-2011 military training missions in Iraq, AFP reported.

Ex-Minn. Gov. Tim Pawlenty ends White House bid 14 Aug 2011 Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty dropped out of the race for the GOP presidential nomination on Sunday, hours after finishing a disappointing third in the Iowa straw poll. The low-key Midwesterner and two-term governor had struggled to gain traction in a state he had said he must win and never caught fire nationally with a Republican electorate seemingly craving a charismatic, nonestablishment, rabble-rouser Grade 'A' sociopath to go up against [Wall Street/CIA troll] President Barack Obama.

Officials said 18 people were killed, including three policemen and 10 local government workers, and 35 were wounded, some badly enough that they had to be transported to Kabul for treatment. A Taliban spokesman claimed credit for the violence in Charikar, a city where they had made barely any inroads in the last 10 years.

Mr Cameron told the newspaper he will announce a series of tough measures to reclaim the streets, which have remained calm across the country this weekend.

Role for US adviser upsets British police

Role for US adviser upsets British police --William Bratton to advise on strategies to deal with rioting after criticism of UK force by David Cameron. 13 Aug 2011 The British prime minister's decision to appoint a US street crime expert as an adviser after recent riots was a "slap in the face", a police body has said. William Bratton said on Saturday he would help David Cameron's government develop strategies on dealing with widespread rioting and gang culture. But a leader of the Greater Manchester Police Federation, which represents police interests', said Britain did not need somebody "who lives 5,000 miles away", and said the only thing the police needed was more funding.

US railway blocked phones to quash protest --California transit provider interrupted wireless mobile service to hamper protesters angry over police shooting. 13 Aug 2011 A rail transit provider in the United States disabled mobile phone services to prevent a planned protest on Thursday, attracting criticism and unflattering comparisons to crackdowns on dissent in the Middle East. Demonstrators in northern California's Bay Area had planned a protest to condemn the shooting death of Charles Hill, who was killed on July 3 after Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) police officers responded to complaints about a drunk man at a station in the city of San Francisco. Hill was fatally shot in the torso and protesters responded eight days later with a demonstration that shut down three San Francisco BART stations.

The request from the government also is going to gun shops, fertilizer suppliers, motels and hotels, authorities say.

MI6 produced bogus Iraq war evidence under pressure from Downing Street

August 13, 2011 by legitgov

MI6 produced bogus Iraq war evidence under pressure from Downing Street 12 Aug 2011 The exhausted secret intelligence officer was heading home after a heavy session analysing reports from Iraq. As he stepped out through the high-security air-lock exit from MI6's grand headquarters beside the Thames in London, a newspaper-seller's placard caught his eye -- '45 minutes from attack,' it proclaimed. Alarm bells rang in his head. It was September 2002, and Prime Minister Tony Blair had that day unveiled with great fanfare the government's dossier detailing Saddam Hussein's arsenal of weapons of mass destruction, as a justification for going to war. He knew, in a way the public did not, the precise background to that headline. His first thought was that this was not what the original intelligence report had said. 'If this goes wrong, we're all screwed,' he muttered to himself. It did go wrong, spectacularly so, as a new history of MI6 by the BBC's well-informed security correspondent Gordon Corera recounts.

US to delay Afghan prison handover until at least 2014

August 13, 2011 by legitgov

US to delay Afghan prison handover until at least 2014 --A typical hearing at the prison, in front of US military officers, includes no lawyers or judges. 13 Aug 2011 The US will remain in control of Afghanistan's highest-profile prison well beyond January 2012, missing a milestone in the plan to transfer judicial and detention operations to Afghans, US military officials say. The existence of the US military prison near Bagram Airfield, about 30 miles north of Kabul, has long been seen by Afghans as a sign of imperial overreach. The US military has detained suspected insurgents here for nearly a decade; most have been kept without trial. Military officials say that over the past three years, the number of detainees has tripled. Parwan now holds 2,600 inmates.

Damaged Reactor Gets New Way to Curb Radiation Leaks: a Tent 13 Aug 2011 The operator of Japan's damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear-power plant is building a huge tent to cover one of the worst-hit reactors, officials said. Officials hope the cover will keep radioactive materials that have already leaked from spreading, prevent rainwater seepage and offer a barrier from possible leaks or blasts in the future. The tent is made of airtight polyester. It will stand 177 feet tall and stretch 154 feet in length.

Shell fighting oil leak in North Sea --Shell cannot specify how much oil escaped 12 Aug 2011 Royal Dutch Shell PLC said Friday it is trying to stop oil leaking from a flow line at one of its drilling platforms in the North Sea off the coast of Scotland.

Show of force to deter Saturday night rioters 13 Aug 2011 Police forces around England will have an increased presence on the streets tonight to counter fears that more drink-fuelled trouble will break out over the weekend.

The Home Secretary, Theresa May, said that, although the past few nights were trouble-free, numbers would remain high.

Prison population peaks as courts rush to punish rioters 13 Aug 2011 The prison population reached a record high yesterday lunchtime, with judges showed no sign of weakening as they continued to dole out stricter sentences to [alleged] rioters, looters and arsonists involved in the unrest that blighted England this week. The courts rushed through hundreds of cases in emergency all-night sittings that saw most defendants either jailed or their cases referred to the Crown Court, unlike earlier in the week, when a majority were bailed.
