Intelligence and National Security Alliance hacked 18 Sep 2011 On Wednesday, 48 hours after releasing a policy paper on cybersecurity, the top trade association for intelligence contractors got a first-hand lesson on the subject: they discovered that their website was hacked. [LOL!] Cryptome, a site affiliated with the hacker collective Anonymous, published the membership emails and phone numbers and in some cases home addresses for the members of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA).

US military to get 'unfettered access' to bases in Australia 14 Sep 2011 Military ties between the US and Australia are set to take the biggest leap forward in 30 years, with defence and security officials from the two countries meeting in San Francisco on Thursday to lay the groundwork for much closer co-operation. Washington and Canberra are set to finalise agreements that will give the US military unfettered access to bases in Australia, a big step forward that will provide the US with a foothold between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The countries are also discussing greater US access to Australian training and test ranges and pre-positioning of US equipment on Australian soil.

Obama Adviser Discusses Using Military on Terrorists

Obama Adviser Discusses Using Military on Terrorists 17 Sep 2011 John O. Brennan, the top counter-terrorism adviser to President Obama, on Friday defended a broad conception of where the United States can use military force against members of 'Al Qaeda' and its allies. "The United States does not view our authority to use military force against Al Qaeda as being restricted solely to 'hot' battlefields like Afghanistan," he said. "Because we are engaged in an armed conflict with Al Qaeda, the United States takes the legal position that - in accordance with international law - we have the authority to take action against Al Qaeda and its associated forces without doing a separate self-defense analysis each time."

Death toll rises to 9 in Nevada air race crash; close to 60 injured 17 Sep 2011 The number of people killed when a pilot lost control of his vintage plane and crashed into spectators during an air race over Reno, Nevada, rose to nine Saturday. Seven people died on the tarmac, including the pilot, and two more died in hospitals, Reno police said. Close to 60 were injured in the incident, which occurred Friday. National Transportation Safety Board member Mark Rosekind said investigators are looking at whether the plane's apparently damaged elevator trim tab -- whose breaking apart was captured in a photograph -- played a role in the nosedive crash.

Tepco Compensation Rules Outrageous, Fukushima Evacuees Say 16 Sep 2011 Evacuees from around Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant said the company's 200-page package for compensation claims is "outrageous" and needs to be simplified.

Chambliss' Gang grows to 38, urges $4 trillion debt deal 15 Sep 2011 Saxby Chambliss's Gang of Six has grown to 38 U.S. senators from both parties [corpora-terrorist trolls], who on Thursday urged the debt reduction "supercommittee" to aim high and secure $4 trillion in budget savings [by ending Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid]. The Georgia Republican was joined by Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., and a group too large to fit on the news conference stage to send a message to the 12-member joint committee created in the summer’s deal to raise the debt ceiling. The committee must devise a plan by November to reduce future deficits by at least $1.2 trillion, on top of $917 billion in already agreed-upon savings. [Stop these Wall Street trolls, too -- whose goal is to take the corporate tax rate to zero!]

Arctic ice hits second-lowest level, US scientists say 16 Sep 2011 Sea ice cover in the Arctic in 2011 has passed its annual minimum, reaching the second-lowest level since satellite records began, US scientists say.

NSIDC said the figure was preliminary, and that "changing winds could still push the ice extent lower" before final numbers are published in early October.

On Thursday, petitions with 663,000 names were handed to the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles urging clemency.

Mayor Bloomberg predicts riots in the streets if economy doesn't create more jobs 16 Sep 2011 New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg warned Friday there would be riots in the streets if Washington doesn't get serious about generating jobs. "We have a lot of kids graduating college, can't find jobs," Bloomberg said on his weekly WOR radio show. "That's what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here." [We don't?] In Cairo, angry Egyptians took out their frustrations by toppling presidential strongman Hosni Mubarak - and more recently attacking the Israeli embassy.

NFL wants pat-downs from ankles up at all stadiums --NFL recommended new guidelines before Week 1 of season 15 Sep 2011 The NFL wants all fans patted down from the ankles up this season to improve fan 'safety.'

Judge's ruling on Miranda rights in terrorism case touches off legal debate --Some say ruling sets dangerous precedent that could open door to coerced confessions 16 Sep 2011 A judge's decision Thursday to let prosecutors use a terrorism suspect's incriminating statements -- even though he wasn't read his rights -- has triggered a legal debate. The case involves Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 24, who goes on trial Oct. 11 on charges that he tried to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day 2009 with a bomb hidden in his underwear. U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds ruled Thursday that Abdulmutallab's statement, which he sought to have suppressed, was admissible.

Bush's Toronto appearance cancelled 14 Sep 2011 Next week's appearance by former U.S. president [sic] George W. Bush at an event hosted by a local evangelical Christian university has been cancelled.

GOP Could Guarantee Obama's Defeat Just by Fiddling With Electoral College

September 16, 2011 by legitgov

The GOP Could Guarantee Obama's Defeat Just by Fiddling With the Electoral College 14 Sep 2011 Pennsylvania Republicans are working on a plan: apportioning its electoral votes by congressional district instead of the current winner-take-all system. Under the new system, a presidential candidate would receive an electoral vote for each congressional district he or she wins, plus two more if he wins the statewide vote count... Republicans control both chambers of the Pennsylvania legislature as well as the governorship, so if the GOP wants to switch over to a congressional-district apportionment system, all the Democrats can really do is whine. As Mother Jones noted today, the same thing could be repeated in other blue states across the country.
