Mozilla Refuses to Help Censor the Internet 06 May 2011 Mozilla, maker of the open source Firefox browser, recently told the Department of Homeland Security that if you want to censor the Internet you better have a good reason or at least a legal justification.

The government agency said MafiaaFire was circumventing a series of ICE domain seizures.

Other material gathered from the site also suggests that Al Qaeda was particularly interested in striking Washington, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, the CNN said.

May 6, 2011 by legitgov

NYC Maintains Heightened Security After Bin Laden Death 03 May 2011 While Mayor Bloomberg says there's no specific threat against the Big Apple after the death of Osama bin Laden, the NYPD was taking no chances. Bomb-sniffing dogs and officers carrying automatic rifles were patrolling transit hubs across the city. An intelligence source told CBS News that law enforcement officials were concerned terror operatives may be directed to come to the US to carry out a plot, or that a so-called "lone wolf" with no official terrorist group affiliation may carry out an attack without direction against the sheer number of available targets in our region, from train terminals, to tunnels, bridges, and our water supply, just to avenge bin Laden's death.

Expert: Security Checkpoints Near Soft Targets May Soon Become the Norm --A Day May Come When You'll Be Patted Down Going Into Stores 03 May 2011 Counter terrorism experts say a retaliation attack for Osama bin Laden's death is inevitable. Terrorists are expected to aim for more vulnerable soft targets like shopping malls or museums. Counter terrorism expert Juval Aviv said terrorists seeking revenge for Osama bin Laden's death will turn to attacks less dramatic than the destruction on Sept. 11 -- focusing instead on soft targets like hotels, places of worship and mass transit hubs. Security consultant David Boehm said the future could include security check points entering all soft targets -- like your local department store.

Bin Laden, two others didn't fire on SEALs: sources 05 May 2011 Only one of four principal targets shot dead by U.S. commandos in the raid which killed Osama bin Laden was involved in any hostile fire, a person familiar with the latest U.S. government reporting on the raid told Reuters on Thursday. The account of Monday's 40-minute raid has new descriptions of the event, including that Navy SEALs shot an occupant of the compound who they thought was armed, but apparently was not. It confirms that bin Laden was not armed when he was shot dead, nor are there indications that he directly threatened his attackers, according to the first source and a second U.S. government source who is familiar with briefings on the raid.

Obama visits World Trade Center site in Sept. 11 salute 05 May 2011 In a poignant visit to the site that has come to symbolize both the trauma and triumphs arising from the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, President Obama placed a wreath at the fallen World Trade Center on Thursday and said the killing of Osama bin Laden upheld America's vow to "never forget" victims' suffering. A cluster of invited guests, most of them relatives of those killed on Sept. 11, stood nearby, at the center of a plaza flanked by buildings in various states of construction and by cranes soaring hundreds of feet into the air but frozen for the presidential visit.

May 5, 2011 by legitgov

Applications for unemployment benefits hit 8-month high 06 May 2011 The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits surged last week to the highest level in eight months, a troubling sign a day ahead of the government's report on April employment. The Labor Department said Thursday that applications rose 43,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 474,000. But that was largely the result of unusual factors, including a high number of school systems in New York that closed for spring break, the department said.

Will Bin Laden's sea burial backfire? Radical Muslims already name location 'Martyr's Sea' 05 May 2011 Radical Muslims are already calling the site of Osama bin Laden's ocean burial the 'Martyr's Sea', according to one of Britain's leading Islamic scholars. The US said the decision to drop bin Laden's body into the North Arabian Sea was taken to avoid creating a shrine for the slain Al Qaeda chief. But Abdal Hakim Murad, Muslim Chaplain at Cambridge University, claimed yesterday that the move could backfire on the Americans. Speaking on Radio 4's 'Today' programme, he said it was 'disappointing' that bin Laden wasn't taken into custody. 'By tipping him into the sea, the Americans may have created a kind of shrine. Some radicals are already calling the Arabian Sea the Martyr’s Sea,' he said.
