Pakistan to Panetta: No U.S. boots on the ground

June 11, 2011 by legitgov

Pakistan to Panetta: No U.S. boots on the ground 11 Jun 2011 CIA Director Leon Panetta arrived in Islamabad on an unannounced visit Friday. He came to urge Pakistan to reconsider its decision to seek the removal of nearly 100 U.S. military trainers tasked with helping the country's army cope with its conflict with al Qaeda [Al CIAduh] and the Taliban, according to a senior Pakistani government official who spoke to CBS News on condition of anonymity. The decision to seek the removal of American forces is widely seen as another sign of hardening anti-U.S. sentiment among Pakistan's top army generals. "Mr. Panetta was told point blank, there will be no U.S. boots on the ground," said the Pakistani government official who spoke to CBS News.

Earlier that summer, Palin and her staff began pushing to find a larger audience for the governor, wedging her into national conversations and nudging the McCain campaign to notice her.

About two dozen activists and homeless people booed and chanted "Food is a right, not a privilege" as they were loaded into a waiting police van. [Oh-but-another reason to *Seize DC.*]

June 11, 2011 by legitgov

Another CIA/MI6 troll bites the dust: Is 'Gay Girl in Damascus' blogger really a student at Edinburgh University?

Amina Arraf won support for her outspoken criticism of the Syrian 'regime' after she began posting under the name 'A Gay Girl in Damascus'. But after a letter claiming to be from her cousin said she had gone missing in the Syrian capital Damascus, having possibly been arrested by the authorities, questions began to be asked about how genuine the blog is.

Shooting video delivers blow to Pakistani forces --'Our law enforcement agencies have truly become trigger happy,' activist says 10 Jun 2011 The killing of an apparently unarmed man by paramilitary troops is likely to erode what little public confidence remains in Pakistan's security forces... The incident, caught on video and broadcast on local television stations, triggered fresh criticism of Pakistan's human rights record and an unpopular government many say has failed to rein in the police and army, and who seem to act with impunity. "It shows that our law enforcement agencies have truly become trigger happy and the brutalization of society that has come about as a consequence," Zohra Yusuf, head of the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, told Reuters.

Poll: Weiner constituents say stay 10 Jun 2011 Even as colleagues and commentators continue to call on Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) to resign, a majority of voters in his district want him to stay put, although support for his re-election was weak, according to a new poll.

June 10, 2011 by legitgov

Espionage charges dropped against ex-NSA manager 10 Jun 2011 A former National Security Agency manager accepted a plea deal Thursday that cleared him of espionage charges stemming from the alleged leak of classified information to a Baltimore Sun reporter. Thomas Drake had been charged with 10 felonies but will plead guilty to a misdemeanor: exceeding the authorized use of a computer.

The case is one of five that the Obama administration has been pursuing against those accused of leaking government secrets, a trend that alarmed advocates of greater transparency in government.
