Japan dismissed US warnings to contain radioactive water at Fukushima

Japan dismissed US warnings to contain radioactive water at Fukushima 20 Sep 2013 Japanese authorities ignored US calls to contain contaminated water at the stricken Fukushima power plant in 2008, officials told media. The revelation comes as the Japanese battle to stem radioactive water leaks flooding into the sea from the facility. Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) estimates that 300 metric tons of groundwater has mixed with radioactive material at the site and is steadily flowing out to sea. Four hundred metric tons of groundwater runs into the nuclear facility from higher ground every day, TEPCO estimates.

Grounds to believe Syria chemical attack was smart provocation - Putin

Grounds to believe Syria chemical attack was smart provocation - Putin 19 Sep 2013 Russia has every reason to believe that the use of chemical weapons in a Damascus suburb in August was an adroit and smart provocation, President Vladimir Putin has said. "We have every grounds to believe that it was a provocation. Of course, it was adroit and smart, but, at the same time, primitive in terms of technical performance. They took an old Soviet-made missile, which was taken out of service in the Syrian army long ago. It was most important to have 'made in the USSR' written [on the missile]," Putin said at the Valday discussion forum on Thursday. The Russian president pointed out that the August 21st attack in Damascus was not the first time chemical weapons had been used in Syria.

DeLay conviction overturned; DA promises appeal

DeLay conviction overturned; DA promises appeal 19 Sep 2013 Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's prayers were answered Thursday when an Austin Court of Appeals voted 2 to 1 to throw out his conviction for illegally laundering corporate money in political campaigns, but prosecutors immediately said they would appeal the latest development in the 11-year-old case. Attending a Washington, D.C., prayer group Thursday morning when his attorney called with the news, DeLay said he found vindication in the reversal of a jury verdict sentencing him to three years in prison for violating state campaign laws. The Travis County District Attorney's Office released a statement "strongly disagreeing" with the appeals court ruling.

Japan's Abe orders surviving Fukushima reactors scrapped, pledges safe Olympics 19 Sep 2013 Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ordered the scrapping of two Fukushima nuclear reactors that survived the 2011 tsunami. He also said he stood by his commitments to the International Olympic Committee of insuring a safe 2020 Summer Games. Abe, speaking to reporters after a tour of the plant on Thursday, said he told Tokyo Electric Power Co to set a time frame for dealing with leaking contaminated water. "...I have directed them to decommission the No. 5 and No. 6 reactors that are now halted," Abe said.

House GOP votes to cut $39 billion from food stamp program 19 Sep 2013 With only Republicans voting in support, the GOP-led House passed a bill Thursday to reduce spending for food stamps by $39 billion over 10 years. The vote was 217-210. No Democrats voted for the measure. Fifteen Republicans voted against the bill, which the Congressional Budget Office estimates will result in the loss of benefits for an estimated 3.8 million people in 2014.

Venezuela says U.S. bans Maduro from flying over Puerto Rico

Venezuela says U.S. bans Maduro from flying over Puerto Rico 19 Sep 2013 Venezuela said on Thursday the United States banned President Nicolas Maduro's jet from flying through U.S. airspace over Puerto Rico en route to a state visit to China in what Caracas called an act of aggression. There was no immediate comment from the United States, and it was unclear why Maduro's flight would be rejected. Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said a flight plan filed by Venezuela that would have routed the president's plane over Puerto Rico had been rejected by U.S. authorities. "We denounce it as yet more U.S. aggression," Jaua said. "We reserve the right to take whatever measures we have to if the U.S. government and its aviation authorities don't rectify this new assault on Venezuela's sovereignty."

Radios 'failed' during Navy Yard attack, emergency responders say

Radios 'failed' during Navy Yard attack, emergency responders say --Initially, officers found that their radios were working. But as they ventured deeper into the building where the shooting took place, their equipment stopped functioning. 19 Sep 2013 Radios for federal firefighters and police officers 'failed' during Monday's mass shooting at Washington’s Navy Yard, according to union representatives for first responders. Union officials said police and firefighters resorted to using their cellphones and radios from D.C.'s emergency responders to communicate with each other during the attack. Anthony Meely, chairman of the Fraternal Order of Police Naval District Washington (NDW) Labor Committee, said police officers who were first on the scene at the Navy Yard had trouble communicating with others in the force via their radios.

Durbin to GOP: Stop acting like 'squealing political pigs'

Durbin to GOP: Stop acting like 'squealing political pigs' 19 Sep 2013 Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told House Republicans to stop acting like "squealing political pigs." "We need to act like adults not like squealing political pigs," Durbin said on the Senate floor Wednesday. Durbin's remarks were in reaction to a House Republican announcement that they would advance a government spending bill that defunds ObamaCare -- something Democrats have said would lead to a government shut down. "If that is what the Tea Party Republicans think is leadership, God save the United States of America," Durbin said.

Contractor that screened Snowden also vetted alleged Navy Yard shooter

Contractor that screened Snowden also vetted alleged Navy Yard shooter 19 Sep 2013 The government contractor that screened Edward Snowden also was responsible for a background check that granted "secret" security clearance to Aaron Alexis, the alleged Navy Yard shooter. USIS, a private company based in Falls Church, Va., said on Thursday that it had vetted Alexis in 2007. The security clearance he subsequently received in 2008 was good for ten years, until 2018. A USIS spokesman declined to say what Alexis' background check revealed, although government officials have said it turned up a 2004 arrest in Seattle for malicious mischief.

Arctic sea ice shrinks to sixth-lowest extent on record

Arctic sea ice shrinks to sixth-lowest extent on record --Indication that Arctic will be entirely ice-free in the summer months within decades - scientists 19 Sep 2013 Sea ice cover in the Arctic has shrunk to one of its smallest extents on record, bringing the days of an entirely ice-free Arctic during the summer a step closer. The annual sea ice minimum of 5,099m sq km reached last Friday was not as extreme as last year, when the collapse of ice cover broke all previous records. But it was still the sixth lowest Arctic sea ice minimum on record, and well below the average set over the past 30 years of satellite records.

False flag unraveling at lightening speed: Navy Yard shooting: SWAT team ordered to stand down, leave scene --No answers given --'[They] haven't even been given the courtesy of a debrief.' 19 Sep 2013 Members of an armed police squad who the BBC has learned were ordered not to respond to Monday's mass shooting in Washington DC have yet to be contacted by the authorities. The Capitol Police tactical response team was told by a supervisor to leave the scene instead of aiding municipal officers, sources told the BBC. Officials on a special investigative panel convened on Wednesday have yet to approach team members. Gunman Aaron Alexis killed 12 people. "No-one's talked to these officers since this happened," a Capitol Police source close to the incident told the BBC.

5.3-magnitude earthquake hits Fukushima prefecture 19 Sep 2013 A 5.3-magnitude earthquake has hit the Japanese prefecture that is home to the wrecked nuclear power plant. The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake struck early Friday at a depth of about 13 miles (22 kilometers) under Fukushima Prefecture and about 110 miles (177 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday ordered TEPCO to scrap all six reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant and concentrate on tackling pressing issues like leaks of radioactive water. Officials have acknowledged that [daily, hundreds of tons of] radiation-contaminated groundwater has been seeping into the Pacific Ocean since soon after the meltdowns.

US missed 'red flags' about gunman

US missed 'red flags' about gunman 19 Sep 2013 US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel acknowledged authorities missed some "red flags" that might have averted a deadly shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, vowing to close any gaps in security. Hagel made the admission in the wake of Monday's massacre that left 13 dead, including the shooter, as details emerged of the troubled former sailor turned contractor who gunned down civilian workers at a naval installation in the heart of Washington. "Obviously, when you go back in hindsight and look at all this, there were some red flags, of course there were," Hagel told a news conference. "And should we have picked them up? Why didn't we? How could we have? All those questions need to be answered."

What would a flu pandemic look like? 'War,' DOD report says

What would a flu pandemic look like? 'War,' DOD report says 18 Sep 2013 What would a flu pandemic in the U.S. look like? More like a war than a natural disaster, a government report indicates. The recently declassified Department of Defense report, dated August 2009, estimates that a full-blown flu pandemic could sicken about 30% of the U.S. population, leading to 3 million hospitalizations and 2 million deaths. The report, which was compiled for U.S. military personnel, also states a flu pandemic could have "significant" impact on military operations.

Group of Engineers Believe Controlled Detonations Took Down World Trade Center

Group of Engineers Believe Controlled Detonations Took Down World Trade Center 11 Sep 2013 There is a growing movement led by some architects and engineers to take a second look at the collapse of the New York City skyscrapers in the attacks on September 11, 2001. "Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth" focuses primarily on Building 7 of the World Trade Center. Not many people know that a third building fell on 9-11. Tony Szambotti is a mechanical engineer from Blackwood, New Jersey. He says the 47 story skyscraper was not hit by a plane…yet collapsed into its own footprint at 5:20 in the afternoon. Szambotti and some 2,000 other of his colleagues contend that it was not scientifically possible for an office fire to be hot enough to melt steel girders and columns. "We believe there were pre-planted charges in the building."

Sandy Hook cover-up continues: Sandy Hook Prosecutor: Releasing 911 Calls Could Aid Criminals 16 Sep 2013 State prosecutors seeking to block the release of 911 calls made during the attack at Sandy Hook Elementary School say a preliminary order to disclose the calls could put police "at the mercy" of criminals [!?!] eager to determine what evidence investigators had collected. Prosecutors will make their case Sept. 25, when the state Freedom of Information Commission considers a proposed order that tapes of the calls be made public. The Associated Press asked Newtown police for copies of the 911 tapes on Dec. 14, the same day Adam Lanza [*allegedly*] shot his way into the school and killed 20 children and six women. Danbury State's Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky III ordered Newtown not to release the tapes.

Colorado and industry working to assess damage in flooded oil fields

Colorado and industry working to assess damage in flooded oil fields 17 Sep 2013 Colorado's richest oil field -- the Denver-Julesburg Basin -- is buried in floodwaters, raising operational and environmental concerns, as state and industry officials work to get a handle on the problem. Thousands of wells and operating sites have been affected — some remain in rushing waters, officials said. "The scale is unprecedented," said Mike King, executive director of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources. "We will have to deal with environmental contamination from whatever source." Any pollution from oil fields likely will be mixed with a stew of agricultural pesticides, sewage, gasoline from service stations and other contaminants, King said. [Fracking caused the 'biblical' Colorado flooding; only open rebellion will stop these sociopaths from destroying the planet.]

ACLU calls on Obama, Congress to rein in power of the FBI

ACLU calls on Obama, Congress to rein in power of the FBI 16 Sep 2013 As James Comey takes over as the new FBI director, the American Civil Liberties Union is calling on the Obama administration and Congress to rein in the increasing power of the agency. In a critical 63-page report that will be issued Tuesday, the ACLU says the powers of the FBI have expanded too dramatically over the past 12 years, transforming the Bureau into a "secret domestic intelligence agency." "The excessive secrecy with which it cloaks these domestic intelligence gathering operations has crippled constitutional oversight mechanisms," the report says.

13 killed in Washington Navy Yard shooting rampage

13 killed in Washington Navy Yard shooting rampage 17 Sep 2013 The deadly attack at the Washington Navy Yard was carried out by one of the military's own: a defense contract employee and former Navy reservist who used a valid pass to get onto the installation and started firing inside a building, killing 12 people before he was slain in a gun battle with police. The motive for the mass shooting -- the deadliest on a military installation in the U.S. since the tragedy at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009 -- was a mystery, investigators said. It put all of Washington on edge.

Oakland Zoo animals test puncture-proof soccer balls

Oakland Zoo animals test puncture-proof soccer balls 16 Sep 2013 Ralph weighs 600 pounds and is a century old, but he still likes to play. But his age makes him a bit picky. Now staff at the Oakland Zoo, where Ralph the giant tortoise lives, have found what they hope is the perfect toy for him -- an indestructible soccer ball. As part of the One World Futbol Project, Ralph has been putting all 600 pounds to work testing the new ball, which doesn't need to be pumped up and never goes flat even when punctured many times by thorns or barbed wire (or lion's teeth).

Suspected U.S. shooter had Secret security clearance, employer says

Suspected U.S. shooter had Secret security clearance, employer says 16 Sep 2013 Aaron Alexis, the 34-year-old suspect in Monday's shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, had "Secret" clearance and was assigned to start working there as a civilian contractor with a military-issued ID card, his firm's chief executive told Reuters. "He did have a Secret clearance. And he did have a CAC (Common Access Card)," said Thomas Hoshko, CEO of The Experts Inc, which was helping service the Navy Marine Corps Intranet as a subcontractor for HP Enterprise Services, part of Hewlett-Packard Co. Alexis had previously worked for The Experts in Japan from September 2012 to January 2013, he said. "We had just recently re-hired him. Another background investigation was re-run and cleared through the defense security service in July 2013," Hoshko said. Hoshko said he believed that Alexis's "Secret" security clearance dated back to 2007.
