U.S. Army private admits murdering Taliban detainee 25 May 2011 A U.S. Army private deemed mentally ill by psychiatrists was sentenced to 12 1/2 years in prison on Wednesday after pleading guilty to murdering a Taliban commander who was shackled inside a jail cell in Afghanistan last October.

Lawrence was court-martialed for killing Mullah Mohebullah with his M-4 rifle as the detainee was confined to a cell in Arghandab, Afghanistan, on October 17, 2010.

Earthquake, not tsunami, may have damaged cooling system at No. 3 reactor

May 26, 2011 by legitgov

Earthquake, not tsunami, may have damaged cooling system at No. 3 reactor 26 May 2011 Data from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant indicates that the March 11 earthquake--not the tsunami--damaged piping for the emergency core cooling system at the No. 3 reactor, leading to a meltdown, experts said. Tokyo Electric Power Co., the plant's operator, has insisted that a tsunami far exceeding expectations led to the accident at the plant, and that shaking from the magnitude-9.0 earthquake did not cause serious damage to crucial equipment... However, data released on May 24 by TEPCO points to the possibility of quake damage to the high-pressure coolant injection system, which is part of the ECCS and critical in preventing crises at nuclear power plants, experts said.

There's a Secret Patriot Act, Senator Says

May 26, 2011 by legitgov

There's a Secret Patriot Act, Senator Says 25 May 2011 You may think you understand how the Patriot Act allows the government to spy on its citizens. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) says it’s worse than you’ve heard. Congress is set to reauthorize three controversial provisions of the surveillance law as early as Thursday. But Wyden says that what Congress will renew is a mere fig leaf for a far broader legal interpretation of the Patriot Act that the government keeps to itself -- entirely in secret. Worse, there are hints that the government uses this secret interpretation to gather what one Patriot-watcher calls a "dragnet" for massive amounts of information on private citizens; the government portrays its data-collection efforts much differently.

May 26, 2011 by legitgov

Soldier guilty of Iraq deaths in Ga. court martial 25 May 2011 An Army sergeant was found guilty on Wednesday of two counts of premeditated murder in the 2008 slayings of his squad leader and another U.S. soldier at a patrol base in Iraq, but he was spared the death penalty when the military jury didn't return a unanimous verdict. Sgt. Joseph Bozicevich of Minneapolis now faces a sentence of life in prison, either with or without the possibility of parole. The death penalty is an option in a court martial only when there's a unanimous guilty verdict for premeditated murder.

MSNBC suspends Schultz over Ingraham remark

May 26, 2011 by legitgov

MSNBC suspends Schultz over Ingraham remark 25 May 2011 Left-leaning Ed Schultz has been suspended from MSNBC for referring to fellow host [Reichwing maggot, and I'm not going to suspend myself] Laura Ingraham as a "right-wing slut" and "talk slut" on his syndicated show Tuesday. "And what are the Republicans thinking about?" Schultz said. "They're not thinking about their next-door neighbor. They're just thinking about how much this is going to cost. President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Mo., on Sunday, but you know what they're talking about, like this right-wing slut, what's her name? Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she's a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama's doing it, they're working him over." [*Exactly.*]

Senate votes to extend Patriot Act

May 25, 2011 by legitgov

Senate votes to extend Patriot Act 25 May 2011 The Senate voted overwhelmingly Monday to extend expiring provisions of the Patriot Act for four years despite objections of a coalition of conservatives and liberals. Because of the Obama administration's strong support for the anti-terrorism law, a bipartisan majority in both the House and Senate is expected to finish the legislation this week, keeping the provisions in force. They are scheduled to expire Friday. "It is essential to avoid any hiatus in these critical authorities," the White House said in a statement.

Senate Rejects House G.O.P. Medicare Plan by 57-40 Vote 26 May 2011 Less than 24 hours after their upset victory in the race for a vacant House seat, Democrats sought to press their advantage on Wednesday, forcing Republicans in the Senate to vote yes or no on what is emerging as the defining issue in the early stages of the 2012 campaign, the plan advanced by House Republicans to reshape eradicate Medicare. The Republican plan was defeated by a vote of 57-40, with five Republicans abandoning their party to vote against the plan.

EU Nuclear Stress Tests to Exclude Preventive Measures From Terrorist Attacks 25 May 2011 The European Union agreed on parameters for stress tests on nuclear power plants that the bloc wants to conduct to reassess safety risks after a crisis in Japan, where an earthquake and a tsunami crippled atomic reactors. The tests on the region's 143 atomic plants will cover threats from natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tornados and extreme heat or snow, as well as airplane crashes and explosions close to nuclear stations, the European Commission said today in a statement. Preventive measures from terrorist attacks will be excluded, according to the EU regulatory arm. [LOL! Gotta keep the path clear for false flags!]

Two damaged Japan nuclear reactors may be 'riddled with holes' --Hydrogen explosion four days after crisis began may have led to formation of second hole in reactor No. 2, as wide as 10 centimeters in diameter 25 May 2011 Two of the damaged reactors at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan may be riddled with holes, according to the facility's owner. The holes may be as big as 7 to 10 centimeters ( 2.8- 3.9 inches), Tokyo Electric Power Co. said in a 225-page document submitted to Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency. In the report, Tokyo Electric says the containment vessel of reactor No. 1 may have developed a hole as big as 3 centimeters in diameter 18 hours after the quake. Fifty hours after the quake, the hole may have widened to 7 centimeters, the report said.

Gates Urges Iraq to Let U.S. Troops Stay Longer 25 May 2011 Defense Secretary Robert Gates urged Iraq to host U.S. troops beyond the end of the year to maintain stability and keep Iran at bay, echoing the growing concerns of U.S. military officials that the government in Baghdad isn't moving fast enough to request an extension of the U.S. troop presence. [That's because everyone on the planet - except for Blackwater, Exxon Mobil, and Monsanto - wants the US *gone.*] Mr. Gates predicted the U.S. would accede to such a request to send a message to American allies and Iran that the U.S. isn't withdrawing from the region, he said in remarks to a think tank in Washington on Tuesday.

DHS to Gain Autonomy Under Obama Cybersecurity Plan

May 25, 2011 by legitgov

DHS to Gain Autonomy Under Obama Cybersecurity Plan 24 May 2011 The Obama administration's cybersecurity legislative proposal gives the Department of Homeland Security more power than ever to 'protect' federal networks against cyberthreats and breaks down the department's communication barriers with the Department of Defense to do so, officials told a Senate panel this week. One key aspect of the plan is to put the DHS's mission to protect U.S. federal civilian networks on par with the DOD's mission to protect U.S. military networks... While the DHS has certainly been at the forefront of federal cybersecurity initiatives, working with the private sector and other agencies such as the DOD and the National Security Agency to share information and make policy, the administration's plan would solidify this role through legislation, officials said.

Democrat wins special election for NY House seat --Race seen as referendum on Republican plan to transform eliminate popular Medicare program 24 May 2011 Democrats have picked off a heavily Republican upstate New York congressional seat in a special election that became a referendum on Medicare. Erie County Clerk Kathy Hochul edged past Republican state Assemblywoman Jane Corwin on Tuesday to win the seat in the 26th Congressional District. The rural-suburban district between Buffalo and Rochester is one of the state's most conservative. But Corwin saw her early lead dissolve after coming out in favor of a Republican budget plan that would cut billions from Medicare, the government health plan for seniors.

Senate considers Patriot Act despite concerns --"It is essential to avoid any hiatus" in the law's powers, the Obama administration said in a statement. 24 May 2011 The tortoise-like Senate is under uncommon pressure to pass a four-year extension of the anti-terrorist Patriot Act before key provisions expire Friday. But the deadline is even tighter, because President Barack Obama is in Europe. Any extension passed by the Senate must be sent to the House and passed there, then flown overseas to be signed into law.
