Israel PM guards tell women reporters to remove bras

July 25, 2011 by legitgov

Israel PM guards tell women reporters to remove bras 22 Jul 2011 Foreign journalists on Friday spoke of their distress after being asked to remove their bras for a security check before being allowed into the offices of Israel's prime minister. The three women were told by security personnel to undress and take off their bras for x-ray in two separate incidents at the Jerusalem offices of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this week. All three complied with the request, despite the distress it caused, in an incident denounced by the Foreign Press Association (FPA) as "unnecessary, humiliating and counter-productive."

Rumsfeld Buries Admission of Missing 2+ Trillion Dollars in 9-10-01 Press Conference

July 24, 2011 by legitgov

Rumsfeld Buries Admission of Missing 2+ Trillion Dollars in 9-10-01 Press Conference (9-11 Research) 01 Apr 2007 On September 10, 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld held a press conference to disclose that over $2,000,000,000,000 in Pentagon funds could not be accounted for. Rumsfeld stated: "According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions." According to a report by the Inspector General, the Pentagon cannot account for 25 percent of what it spends. Such a disclosure normally might have sparked a huge scandal. However, the commencement of the attack on New York City and Washington in the morning would assure that the story remained buried. To the trillions already missing from the coffers, an obedient Congress terrorized by anthrax attacks would add billions more in appropriations to fight the "War on Terror."

Gunman used 'exploding' dum-dum bullets on deadly rampage --Suspect looked like he was straight out of a Nazi movie 24 Jul 2011 The chief surgeon at a hospital treating victims of Norway's camp massacre said the killer used special bullets designed to disintegrate inside the body and cause maximum internal damage. Dr Colin Poole, head of surgery at Ringriket Hospital in Honefoss north west of Oslo, said surgeons treating 16 gunshot victims have recovered no full bullets. He said: 'These bullets more or less exploded inside the body. These bullets inflicted internal damage that's absolutely horrible.' Dum-dum bullets were banned in international warfare under the Hague Convention of 1899. The Met police revealed in May that all its marksmen will soon be issued with the ammunition.

Hacker says Anonymous still downloading NATO data

July 24, 2011 by legitgov

Hacker says Anonymous still downloading NATO data 22 Jul 2011 The hacking group Anonymous said Thursday that it accessed about 1 gigabyte of restricted material from NATO servers, and released a few of the documents as proof of its cyber-incursion. According to a hacker who maintains that he is part of Anonymous and goes by the name "Commander X," Anonymous plans to eventually release all the NATO documents in its possession and still has the capability to download NATO data. [Good! Maybe Anonymous will reveal how 'the United States has wasted some $34 billion on service contracts with the private sector in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.' Oh. That and the trillions lost by the Pentagon that Donald Rumsfeld mentioned a day before the 9/11 inside job. --LRP]

Norway killer's plan to 'seize power' in Europe after London visit

July 24, 2011 by legitgov

Norway killer's plan to 'seize power' in Europe after London visit --Witness accounts said a second gunman had taken part in a mass shooting. [The 2nd gunman was probably Breivik's MKULTRA (or similar) handler.] 24 Jul 2011 Anders Behring Breivik, the suspect in Norway's twin attacks that killed at least 92 and wounded 97, described in his manifesto a meeting in London where he plotted to 'seize power' in Europe. Breivik has admitted he perpetrated the atrocity but denied criminal responsibility as it emerged he left a 1,500 page manifesto of Right-wing ranting. It is part diary, part bomb-making manual and part political rant in which Anders Behring Breivik details his Islamophobia, attacks on Marxism and his initiation as a Knight Templar.

Police: Norway [TERROR] suspect confessed to bomb, shooting 23 Jul 2011 Norwegian police say a man [terror suspect] in custody has confessed to a bombing and shooting spree that killed 92 people. But Police Chief Sveinung Sponheim told reporters Sunday that the man, Anders Behring Breivik, does not accept criminal responsibility. [Yeah, I know he's a blond, white, Christian guy, but we're gonna call him a terror suspect anyway, even though Fox News will soon have him morphing into an 'activist,' like they do with the killers of abortion doctors. Now, how come the hypocritical sociopath from New York, Rep. Peter King, isn't whining about whether or not his rights were read and why he wasn't sent to Guantanamo Bay, as he did with Nidal Hasan? Oh, that's right. Not a Muslim. Got it. --Lori Price]

U.S. wastes $34 billion in Afghan and Iraq contracting --Source: More than 200,000 contractors have been on U.S. payroll at times in Iraq and Afghanistan, outstripping number of U.S. troops on ground in those countries 23 Jul 2011 The United States has wasted some $34 billion on service contracts with the private sector in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a study being finalized for Congress. The analysis by the Commission on Wartime Contracting, details of which were first reported by the Wall Street Journal, offers the most complete look so far at the misuse of U.S. contracting funds in Afghanistan and Iraq, where more than $200 billion has been doled out in the contracts and grants over nearly a decade.

U.S. Blocks Oversight of Its Mercenary Army in Iraq 22 Jul 2011 By January 2012, the State Department will do something it's never done before: command a mercenary army the size of a heavy combat brigade. That's the plan to provide security for its diplomats in Iraq once the U.S. military withdraws. And no one outside State knows anything more, as the department has gone to war with its independent government watchdog to keep its plan a secret. Stuart Bowen, the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR), is essentially in the dark about one of the most complex and dangerous endeavors the State Department has ever undertaken. "Our audit of the program is making no progress," Bowen tells Danger Room.

On Saturday, during an interrogation by the Oslo police, Breivik confessed to firing weapons on Utoeya Island, which is located near the Norwegian capital. Breivik's 75 posts on a Norwegian anti-Islamic online forum give a picture of his general ideas about a wide range of issues, Norway's largest newspaper Aftenposten reported.

US heat wave preys on poor By Gary Joad 23 Jul 2011 The heat wave engulfing much of the US and Canada is threatening the lives of those least able to protect themselves from extreme conditions of heat and humidity, especially the elderly, the poor, undocumented immigrants workers, and the infirm... Reuters News Service reported this week that the Border Patrol has already noted "an alarming spike in deaths of illegal immigrants." Summertime heat waves are thought to kill hundreds of Americans every year, by far the most common victims being the elderly, the young, and the working or homeless poor with inadequate protection from the elements.

Norway Attacks Suspect 'Has Right-Wing Ties' [Notice that the word 'terrorism' vanished from the media landscape and Faux News stopped coverng it the minute they found out the guy was one of their own?] 23 Jul 2011 Police have said a Norwegian man arrested after the twin [terror] attacks in Norway is a right-winger with anti-Muslim views, but they do not know whether that was a factor in the [terror] attacks. Police are continuing to question the 32-year-old - named by Norwegian television as Anders Behring Breivik - after he was detained on Friday evening in connection with the [terror] attacks. National police chief Sveinung Sponheim said internet postings by the suspected gunman "suggest that he has some political traits directed toward the right, and anti-Muslim views, but if that was a motivation for the actual act remains to be seen".

Gov't to allow use of less-demanding radiation detector for beef 23 Jul 2011 The government is set to allow inspection of beef for radiation contamination using more widely available, less-demanding detectors as it prepares to impose broader beef cattle screening to contain the widening food scare, government officials said Friday.

Some Democrats fuming at Obama

Some Democrats fuming at Obama 22 Jul 2011 Some Democrats have had it -- at least when it comes to reports of what's in a $3 trillion deal being shepherded by President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner. At issue: large spending cuts on the table that include entitlement programs such as Medicare and Social Security, among other things. On Thursday night, White House Budget Director Jack Lew took "body blow after body blow" from Democratic senators he was briefing on the negotiations, according to a Democratic aide. The aide described Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland as "feisty" in the meeting and said the senator later used the terms "volcanic" and "Mount Vesuvius" to describe the caucus' reaction to the proposal. [Obama won't invoke the 14th Amendment to end a crisis the GOP alone generated. Republicans voted *7 times* to raise the debt ceiling under Bush, calling it 'routine housekeeping.' Cheney said 'deficits don't matter.' That's because the GOP created them. Obama's ready to destroy the middle class - as a corporatist, his goal from the get-go. --LRP]

Top Republican breaks off debt talks with Obama --Obama-Boehner negotiations collapse -- Democrats were furious over shape of deal [complete surrender to Wall Street/the Tea Party by Obusha] emerging 22 Jul 2011 U.S. House Speaker John Boehner broke off talks with President Barack Obama on Friday on a deficit-reduction deal to prevent a devastating default and said he would try to hammer out an agreement through the Senate. In a dramatic turn of events with the deadline to raise the U.S. debt ceiling just 11 days away, a stern-faced Obama expressed frustration at the Republican leader's move, saying it was "hard to understand why Speaker Boehner would walk away from this kind of deal."

Anonymous, LulzSec: 'Your threats to arrest us are meaningless' 21 Jul 2011 Anonymous and LulzSec released a joint statement responding to the FBI on Thursday morning, defending their practices and insisting that their hacks will effect social change. The groups said that they are executing their attacks because governments are lying to their people and conspiring with corporations and lobbyists. "These governments and corporations are our enemy," the statement said. "And we will continue to fight them, with all methods we have at our disposal, and that certainly includes breaking into their websites and exposing their lies." [Exactly!]

The Press Association news agency said its reporter Theo Usherwood was also suspended for covering the same incident.

Allen West: Apology to Wasserman Schultz 'is not happening' 21 Jul 2011 Rep. Allen West (Teabagger-Fla.) says he is not apologizing to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for attacking the Florida Democrat in an e-mail. "That is not happening," West told Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney Thursday morning when asked whether he plans to apologize to Wasserman Schultz, who is the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. In his message to Wasserman Schultz, which he copied to House Republican and Democratic leaders, West said that the lawmaker was "not a Lady" for criticizing his support for the "Cut, Cap and Balance" plan in remarks on the House floor. West also called the Democrat "vile" and "despicable" and said that she should "shut the heck up." A group of five House Democratic women on Wednesday called on House leaders to rebuke West for his remarks; leadership has yet to weigh in on the incident.

Democrats, Republicans vow trillions in US spending cuts --President Obama hailed the Gang of Six proposal while at the same time admitting he had not even read it.

NATO fuel truck torched in Pakistan [What a shame!] 21 Jul 2011 Taliban-linked militants in northwestern Pakistan have blown up a NATO oil truck carrying fuel for US-led foreign troops in Afghanistan, security officials say. In a fresh militant attack on the NATO containers heading from Pakistan to neighboring Afghanistan, the militants destroyed a NATO fuel truck on Thursday, Reuters reported.

US may be 'bankrolling' Afghan insurgents: audit

July 21, 2011 by legitgov

Terrorists 'R Us: US may be 'bankrolling' Afghan insurgents: audit --Since 2002, the United States spent more than $70 billion in Afghanistan. 20 Jul 2011 US aid money could be fueling corruption and inadvertently bankrolling insurgents in Afghanistan because the United States is unable to closely track the funds, a government audit said Wednesday. The report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction said the effect of massive US funding was jeopardized by a lack of financial controls as well as a deep reluctance by Afghan authorities to prosecute corruption cases. The audit reviewed oversight of US aid converted to cash, including electronic payments to contractors, and assessed American efforts to bolster the Kabul government's regulation of commercial banks and informal hawala financial networks. [Instead of cutting Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, why not get out the f*ck out of Afghanistan (and Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia) and use that money to pay down the debt?]
