June 16, 2011 by legitgov

Assange 'being treated like a caged animal': supporters --WikiLeaks associates say British government spying on him during his house arrest 16 Jun 2011 After six months under virtual house arrest, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange acknowledged Thursday that his detention is hampering the work of the secret-spilling site. His supporters accused Britain of subjecting him to "excessive and dehumanizing" treatment. The Australian is living at a supporter's rural estate as he fights extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over claims of rape and sexual molestation made by two women. Assange's bail conditions require him to observe an overnight curfew, wear an electronic tag and report to police daily.

Pakistan 'blocking supplies to US base'

June 16, 2011 by legitgov

Pakistan 'blocking supplies to US base' 16 Jun 2011 Pakistan is blocking food and water from reaching a remote base used by the US for its secret drones programme, severely hampering counter terrorism strategy, according to a senior American official. Both sides are now briefing against the other as hostility between the two countries grows more intense -- and more open -- day by day. A senior U.S. official told The New York Times that supplies had been choked off to the airbase and that they were gradually "strangling the alliance" by making things difficult for the Americans in Pakistan. [Great! Less eight-year-olds will have bombs drop on their heads by USociopaths' killer drones.]

Villagers tried to put off the fires, but soldiers forbade them from entering and fired more stun grenades at them. Palestinian civil defense forces sent a fire engine but Israeli forces stopped it from entering, onlookers explained. However, an Israeli fire engine was seen arriving in the same area to put out the fire.

June 16, 2011 by legitgov

"But unfortunately the distraction that I have created has made that impossible."

LulzSec Hacks CIA.gov Website

June 15, 2011 by legitgov

LulzSec Hacks CIA.gov Website 15 Jun 2011 A report from Reuters is indicating that hacker group Lulz Security (LulzSec) broke into a public portion of the Senate website over a weekend and claimed responsibility for that attack in a Tweet Monday. For the second time in a week, the group has broken into a public senate site and downloaded information. CIA.gov, the official site of the Central Intelligence Agency, was also unresponsive to browsing and we have reason to believe it has faced the same fate as the other prominent sites. LulzSec has seemed to claim responsibility for the CIA site going down with this Tweet, posted Wednesday evening PST, stating "Tango down - CIA.gov – for the lulz."

June 15, 2011 by legitgov

Traces of radiation found in 2 whales off Japan 15 Jun 2011 Japanese whalers caught two animals along the northern coast that had traces of radiation, presumably from leaks at a damaged nuclear power plant, officials said Wednesday. Two of 17 minke whales caught off the Pacific coast of Hokkaido showed traces of radioactive cesium, both about one-twentieth of the legal limit, fisheries officials said. They are the first whales thought to have been affected by radiation leaked from the damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.

'Violent Islam' in US prisons to be probed 15 Jun 2011 Congress is holding the second in a series of hearings about [alleged] violent Islamic radicalisation in the US, a subject so controversial that the first event drew days of protests from religious and civil rights groups and tears from a Muslim congressman who testified about his religion. The latest House Homeland Security Committee hearing, led by New York Republican Rep. Peter King, examines Islamic radicalisation in prisons.

Radiation "hotspots" hinder Japan response to nuclear crisis

June 15, 2011 by legitgov

Radiation "hotspots" hinder Japan response to nuclear crisis 15 Jun 2011 Hisao Nakamura still can't accept that his crisply cut field of deep green tea bushes south of Tokyo has been turned into a radioactive hazard by a crisis far beyond the horizon. "I was more than shocked," said Nakamura, 74, who, like other tea farmers in Kanagawa has been forced to throw away an early harvest because of radiation being released by the Fukushima Daiichi plant 300 kilometers (180 miles) away. More than three months after the Fukushima nuclear plant was hit by a quake and tsunami that triggered the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl, Japanese officials are still struggling to understand where and how radiation released in the accident created far-flung "hotspots" of contamination.

Wisconsin Supreme Court reinstates collective bargaining law

June 15, 2011 by legitgov

Wisconsin Supreme Court reinstates collective bargaining law 14 Jun 2011 Acting with unusual speed, the state Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered the reinstatement of Gov. Scott Walker's controversial plan to end most collective bargaining for tens of thousands of public workers. The court found that a committee of lawmakers was not subject to the state's open meetings law, and so did not violate that law when it hastily approved the collective bargaining measure in March and made it possible for the Senate to take it up. In doing so, the Supreme Court overruled a Dane County judge who had halted the legislation, ending one challenge to the law even as new challenges are likely to emerge.

Pakistan Arrests C.I.A. Informants in Bin Laden Raid 15 Jun 2011 Pakistan's top military spy agency has arrested some of the Pakistani informants who fed information to the Central Intelligence Agency in the months leading up to the raid that led to the death of 'Osama bin Laden,' according to U.S. officials. Pakistan's detention of five C.I.A. informants, including a Pakistani Army major who officials said copied the license plates of cars visiting Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in the weeks before the raid, is the latest evidence of the fractured relationship between the United States and Pakistan.

Earless rabbit born outside Fukushima exclusion zone raises concerns 14 Jun 2011 An albino rabbit born with no ears has prompted new concerns in Japan about radiation levels from the wrecked Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. The rabbit was born on May 7 in the town of Namie, which is just outside the 18-mile exclusion zone that has been imposed around the crippled plant, its owner, Yuko Sugimoto, said. The discovery has triggered new concerns in Japan about the levels of radiation released into the atmosphere since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. "I have been raising rabbits for more than 10 years and this is the first time something like this has happened," Miss Sugimoto told a magazine.

Secret US and Afghanistan talks could see troops, spies and air power stay for decades --Russia, China and India concerned about 'strategic partnership' in which Americans would remain after 2014 13 Jun 2011 American and Afghan officials are locked in increasingly acrimonious secret talks about a long-term security agreement which is likely to see US troops, spies and air power based in the troubled country for decades. Though not publicised, negotiations have been under way for more than a month to secure a strategic partnership agreement which would include an American presence beyond the end of 2014 -- the agreed date for all 130,000 combat troops to leave -- despite continuing public debate in Washington and among other members of the 49-nation coalition fighting in Afghanistan about the speed of the withdrawal.

TIME has learned that a prosecutor [John Durham] tasked with probing the CIA has begun calling witnesses before a secret federal grand jury in Alexandria, Va., looking into, among other things, the lurid Nov. 4, 2003, homicide. TIME has obtained a copy of a subpoena signed by Durham that points to his grand jury's broader mandate, which could involve charging additional CIA officers and contract employees in other cases.

June 14, 2011 by legitgov

Bank of America 'Significantly Hindered' Review of Foreclosures, U.S. Says 14 Jun 2011 Bank of America Corp. (BAC), the largest U.S. lender, "significantly hindered" a federal review of its foreclosures on loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration, the U.S. said. The bank was slow in providing data and offered incomplete information, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development inspector general’s office, which conducted the review. "Our review was significantly hindered by Bank of America’s reluctance to allow us to interview employees or provide data and information in a timely manner," William Nixon, an assistant regional inspector general for the agency, said in a sworn declaration.

CIA Prepares to Launch Drone Strikes in Yemen

June 14, 2011 by legitgov

CIA Prepares to Launch Drone Strikes in Yemen 13 Jun 2011 The Central Intelligence Agency plans to use armed drones to try to kill 'al Qaeda' militants in Yemen, where months of antigovernment protests, an armed revolt and the attempted assassination of the president have left a power vacuum, U.S. officials say. The CIA program will be a major expansion of U.S. counterterrorism efforts in Yemen. Since December 2009, U.S. strikes in Yemen have been carried out by the U.S. military with intelligence support from CIA. The U.S. military strikes have been conducted with the permission of the Yemeni government regime. [1) Hasn't the US been bombing Yemen all along? 2) Isn't it odd that every dictatorship-for-oil the US supports is referred to in the media as a 'government,' but every democratically elected leader the US opposes is referred to as a 'regime?' We're on to the grammar games, and will participate in the inverse. --LRP]

Obama On Weiner Scandal: "If It Was Me, I Would Resign" 13 Jun 2011 Talking with the Today Show on Monday, President Barack Obama said that if he was Congressman Anthony Weiner, he would resign from Congress following disclosures this week about Weiner's online sexual activity.

According to a White House spokesman, Obama also called Weiner's sexting scandal "inappropriate" and a "distraction" while speaking with reporters aboard Air Force One Monday. [Of course, cowering before Fox News, if one of Obusha's GOP overlords was in the same situation as Weiner, Obama would have remained *silent.*]
