May 31, 2011 by legitgov

Group hacks PBS website in WikiLeaks protest 30 May 2011 A group of hackers angered by a PBS documentary about WikiLeaks has posted a fake news story on the website of the public broadcaster claiming that dead rapper Tupac Shakur was alive and well. The group, Lulz Boat, attacked PBS' servers on Sunday, posting stolen passwords and other sensitive PBS information alongside a story headlined "Tupac still alive in New Zealand." "We just finished watching WikiSecrets and were less than impressed," Lulz Boat said, referring to an hour-long documentary that aired on PBS' "Frontline" program on Tuesday.

Obama nominates Army general Dempsey to lead Joint Chiefs of Staff 30 May 2011 President Obama nominated Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and promoted two other senior military leaders Monday, completing an overhaul of his national security team in advance of the 2012 election. Obama's appointments will usher in a new leadership at the Pentagon, where for the first 2 1/2 years of his term he had kept most of the existing brass from his predecessor [sic] George W. Bush. In turning to Dempsey, Obama had to pull him out of a high-ranking position -- Army chief of staff -- that he had appointed him to just last month.

Taliban insurgents hit NATO base, downtown Herat in coordinated attacks 31 May 2011 'Insurgents' staged deadly coordinated strikes Monday in the western city of Herat, where an explosion killed at least four people in a bustling downtown area and a car bomb detonated at the gates of a NATO base, injuring several Italian soldiers inside, Afghan and coalition officials said. An Afghan soldier died in a subsequent shootout. Herat, a city that lies close to Afghanistan's border with Iran, has been designated as one of the first areas of the country where Western troops are to hand over security responsibilities to Afghan forces beginning in July.

Israel Minister: Strike on Iran Could Be Necessary 30 May 2011 An Israeli Cabinet minister said the civilized world must take joint action to avert the Iranian 'nuclear threat,' including a pre-emptive strike if necessary. Moshe Yaalon -- the minister for strategic affairs -- made the statement in an interview with Russia's Interfax news agency released Monday ahead of a visit to Moscow. "We strongly hope that the entire civilized world will come to realize what threat this regime is posing and take joint action to avert the nuclear threat posed by Iran, even if it would be necessary to conduct a pre-emptive strike," Yaalon was quoted by Interfax as saying.

Al-Jazeera footage captures 'western troops on the ground' in Libya 30 May 2011 Armed westerners have been filmed on the front line with 'rebels' near Misrata in the first apparent confirmation that foreign special forces are playing an active role in the Libyan conflict. A group of six westerners are clearly visible in a report by al-Jazeera from Dafniya, described as the westernmost point of the rebel lines west of the town of Misrata. Five of them were armed and wearing sand-coloured clothes, peaked caps, and cotton Arab scarves. The sixth, apparently the most senior of the group, may be an intelligence officer.

CIA prisons in Poland 'illegal'

May 30, 2011 by legitgov

CIA prisons in Poland 'illegal' --Prosecutors representing terror suspect Adb al-Rahim al-Nashiri claim the man was tortured at the facility between 2002 to 2003. Al-Nashiri was subjected to waterboarding and mock executions with a power drill while he was naked and hooded, the prosecutors said. 30 May 2011 Secret prisons operated by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) on Polish territory violated international law and the Polish constitution according to legal experts, reported the daily Gazeta Wyborcza on Monday, citing sources close to an investigation. The CIA held terror suspects inside a military intelligence training base in Stare Kiejkuty, northeastern Poland, from 2002 to 2005, anonymous Polish intelligence officers have said. According to Wyborcza, Poland and the US agreed that the US would not reply to a Polish request for assistance in the case. This would prolong the investigation until the case could be suspended, the daily reported, citing a source in the prosecutor's office.

Uranium Stocks Under Siege as Fukushima Continues Spewing Radiation

May 30, 2011 by legitgov

Uranium Stocks Under Siege as Fukushima Continues Spewing Radiation 30 May 2011 As shares in uranium exploration companies continued to shed value, Japan's nuclear nightmare is still getting worse. News this weekend that the hope of 'stabilizing' the leakage of radiation by steam into the atmospohere and by water into the ocean is unlikely underscores just how bad the situation is. Within a 20 kilometre radius around the stricken plant, a Chernobyl-style dead zone is developing, with levels of 1.48 million becquerels a square meter measured within that area. Dangerous levels of radiation have now been confirmed as far as 600 kilometres away from Fukushima.

Two Fukushima workers may have exceeded radiation limit

May 30, 2011 by legitgov

Two Fukushima workers may have exceeded radiation limit 30 May 2011 Two workers at Japan's crippled nuclear power plant may have exceeded the government's radiation exposure limit, the plant operator said. Measurements of external exposure and radioactive iodine in their thyroid glands suggested that the two male workers, one in his 30s and the other in his 40s, had surpassed the maximum set by the government of 250 millisieverts over the life of the control and clean-up project. The government relaxed its upper limit for exposure for the Fukushima disaster, allowing 250 millisieverts for male emergency workers compared with the conventional maximum of 100 millisieverts for nuclear-related emergencies.

2 firms to pay for improper military foreclosures 26 May 2011 Two mortgage lenders will pay more than $22 million combined to settle federal civil charges that they improperly foreclosed on 178 military personnel, some of whom were serving in the Iraq or Afghanistan wars. Subsidiaries of Bank of America Corp. and Morgan Stanley failed to obtain court orders before imposing the foreclosures between 2006 and 2009, the Justice Department said Thursday. The foreclosed homes were in 22 states.

AP: Fukushima tsunami plan a single page

May 30, 2011 by legitgov

AP: Fukushima tsunami plan a single page 28 May 2011 Japanese nuclear regulators trusted that the reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi complex were safe from the worst waves an earthquake could muster based on a single-page memo from the plant operator nearly a decade ago. In the Dec. 19, 2001, document -- one double-sized page obtained by The Associated Press under Japan's public records law -- Tokyo Electric Power Co. rules out the possibility of a tsunami large enough to knock the plant offline and gives scant details to justify this conclusion, which proved to be wildly optimistic.

Top lobbying banks got biggest bailouts: study

Top lobbying banks got biggest bailouts: study 26 May 2011 The more aggressively a bank lobbied before the financial crisis, the worse its loans performed during the economic downturn -- and the more bailout dollars it received, according to a study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research this week. The report, titled "A Fistful of Dollars: Lobbying and the Financial Crisis," said that banks' lobbying efforts may be motivated by short-term profit gains, which can have devastating effects on the economy. Data collected by the authors -- three economists from the International Monetary Fund -- show that the most aggressive lobbyers in the financial industry from 2000 to 2007 also made the most toxic mortgage loans.

More than 7,000 slotted for Iraq this summer 25 May 2011 More than 7,170 soldiers will deploy to Iraq beginning in mid-summer -- despite a security agreement that requires U.S. forces to depart the country by Dec. 31. The deployments are part of the regular rotation of forces and will include a division headquarters of 775 soldiers and two brigade combat teams totaling 6,400 soldiers, according to a Defense Department announcement Tuesday.

Worst ever carbon emissions leave climate on the brink

Worst ever carbon emissions leave climate on the brink --Record rise, despite recession, means 2C target almost out of reach 29 May 2011 Greenhouse gas emissions increased by a record amount last year, to the highest carbon output in history, putting hopes of holding global warming to safe levels all but out of reach, according to unpublished estimates from the International Energy Agency. The shock rise means the goal of preventing a temperature rise of more than 2 degrees Celsius - which scientists say is the threshold for potentially "dangerous climate change" - is likely to be just "a nice Utopia", according to Fatih Birol, chief economist of the IEA.

Afghan leader Karzai issues 'last warning' to Nato --The BBC's Quentin Sommerville said villagers brought their dead children to the governor's office shouting: "See they aren't Taliban". 29 May 2011 Afghan President Hamid Karzai has forcefully condemned the killing of 14 civilians in the south-west of the country in a suspected Nato air strike. Mr Karzai said his government had repeatedly asked the US to stop raids which end up killing Afghan civilians and this was his "last warning". Afghan officials say all those killed were women and children.

Ohio schools cut jobs anticipating funding cuts 26 May 2011 Ohio school districts already are cutting thousands of jobs in anticipation of losing funding in the upcoming state budget, as unions and other education groups lobby hard at the Statehouse to get some of it restored. In Cincinnati, 226 school district jobs have been cut, including 145 teaching positions... The Ohio Education Association union says nearly 3,800 teacher and support staff jobs in Ohio won't be filled next year through layoffs, retirements or resignations, and more cuts are expected.

Deluge could spread Fukushima radiation 30 May 2011 There are fears a tropical storm off the coast of Japan could wash radioactive material from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant into the air and sea. Now downgraded to a tropical storm, former Typhoon Songda is still expected to bring strong winds and torrential rain to Tokyo later this morning, with the Fukushima area also forecast to experience a deluge. The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), has apologised for not being prepared for the bad weather.

GOP Rep. questions Obama's autopen signing of Patriot Act extension 27 May 2011 Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ga.) is questioning President Obama's use of an autopen in signing an extension of the Patriot Act. In a letter Friday, Graves asks Obama to confirm that he saw the law prior to its autopen signing. "Mr. President, I write to request your confirmation that S. 990, as passed by Congress, was presented to you prior to the autopen signing, as well as a detailed, written explanation of your Constitutional authority to assign a surrogate the responsibility of signing bills passed into law," Graves wrote.

Tepco can't stabilize reactors by year-end: report

May 30, 2011 by legitgov

Tepco can't stabilize reactors by year-end: report 29 May 2011 Tokyo Electric Power Co. is coming to the view that it will be impossible to stabilize the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant by the end of this year, possibly affecting the timing for the government to consider the return of evacuees to their homes near the plant, Kyodo News reported, citing senior company officials. The revelation that meltdowns had occurred at the Nos. 1 to 3 reactors at the plant, most likely with breaches to pressure vessels encasing nuclear fuel, has led the officials to believe that "there will be a major delay to work" to contain the situation, one of them said.

Republican Legislators Push to Tighten Voting Rules

Republican Legislators Push to Tighten Voting Rules --G.O.P. efforts advance in 13 states 29 May 2011 Less than 18 months before the next presidential election, Republican-controlled statehouses around the country are rewriting voting laws to require photo identification at the polls, reduce the number of days of early voting, or tighten registration rules. Democrats say the changes have little to do with fraud prevention and more to do with placing obstacles in the way of possible Democratic voters, including young people and minorities. Democrats say the unified Republican push for photo identification cards carries echoes of the Jim Crow laws -- with their poll taxes and literacy tests -- that inhibited black voters in the South from Reconstruction through the 1960s.

'US dropped cluster bombs on Misratah' 29 May 2011 A Human rights investigation in Libya has found that it was the US and its Western allies who cluster bombed the troubled city of Misratah back in April. The HRI said it has convincing evidence that the cluster bombing blamed on pro-Gaddafi forces was actually carried out by the US navy. The report says at the time of the attack, Human Rights Watch and a 'reporter' working for US media immediately blamed forces loyal to Libya's embattled leader Muammar Gaddafi for the cluster bombing that threatened civilian lives.

Zaid, can tell the judge what he knows.

Obama signs extension of Patriot Act spy powers By Andre Damon 28 May 2011 US President Barack Obama signed a renewal of three of the most notorious provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act Friday, meaning that the whole of the act will remain in effect without modification through 2015. The move reinforces once again the wholehearted support by the Democratic Party for the policies of domestic spying, torture, and violation of democratic rights, adopted during the Bush administration and continued by Obama... Prior to his election, Obama styled himself as an opponent of the very provisions he has now renewed for a second time.

Egypt opens Rafah border with Gaza 28 May 2011 Egypt has reopened its Rafah border crossing with the Gaza Strip, allowing the coastal territory's Palestinian residents to cross freely for the first time in four years - a sharp departure from the policies of Hosni Mubarak, the deposed president. The opening on Saturday morning provided long-awaited relief for Palestinians. The move was ushered in by Egypt's new government in a bid to ease the suffering of the territory's residents. Al Jazeera, reporting from Gaza, said there will still be restrictions in place, preventing men younger than 40 from leaving the enclave, which is ruled by the Palestinian group, Hamas.
