Gee, Looks Like Obama Really Is Setting Up 'Death Panels'

Gee, Looks Like Obama Really Is Setting Up 'Death Panels' --Obama drone oversight proposal prompts concern over 'kill courts' --President asks Congress to establish special court or board to authorise legal drone action 24 May 2013 Proposals to vet future US drone strikes risk creating "kill courts" according to human rights campaigners who say Barack Obama's promise of new legal oversight does not go far enough to end what they regard as extrajudicial executions. The president has asked Congress to consider establishing a special court or oversight board to authorise lethal action outside warzones under a new counter-terrorism doctrine which he says will end the "boundless war on terror". But responses to his speech from leading campaign groups, though broadly welcoming, highlight how little change Obama is proposing to the underlying principle that the US has a legal right to kill suspected terrorists abroad without trial.

Bill Drafted in Secret Would Block Release of Some Newtown Massacre Records

Bill Drafted in Secret Would Block Release of Some Newtown Massacre Records --Options considered: Blocking release of 911 calls, photos, statements 'made by a minor' 21 May 2013 The staffs of the state's top prosecutor and the governor's office have been working in secret with General Assembly leaders on legislation to withhold records related to the police investigation into the Dec. 14 Newtown elementary school massacre -- including victims' photos, tapes of 911 calls, and possibly more. The behind-the-scenes legislative effort came to light Tuesday when The Courant obtained a copy of an email by a top assistant to Chief State's Attorney Kevin Kane, Timothy J. Sugrue. Sugrue, an assistant state's attorney, discussed options considered so far, including blocking release of statements "made by a minor." The bill that's being crafted has not been handled under routine legislative procedures -- it hasn't gone through the committee process, which includes a public hearing, for example.

Chief CT Attorney: 'Truthers changed Freedom of Information landscape, so release of Sandy Hook details must be blocked'

Chief CT Attorney: 'Truthers changed Freedom of Information landscape, so release of Sandy Hook details must be blocked' --CT bill would suppress Sandy Hook crime scene photos 22 May 2013 A bill was brokered Wednesday by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy [regarding the crime scene] photos from the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. But civil libertarians oppose the legislation and Connecticut's newspaper and radio executives warned Wednesday that suppression of information could set a bad precedent and create unintended consequences. The bill, a draft of which was released by the governor's office late Wednesday afternoon, is crafted specifically to cover the crime-scene photos and 911 audio recordings of the December 14 shootings at the Newtown school. But it would also allow Town Clerk Debbie Aurelia to continue to withhold the death certificates for the 20 first graders and six adults murdered there... Chief State's Attorney Kevin T. Kane said Wednesday that while mainstream news media traditionally avoid the use of graphic photos, bloggers and so-called truthers -- who claim the Newtown murders are a hoax by officials with an anti-gun agenda -- have changed the Freedom of Information landscape. Kane was seeking broader powers to prevent photos and recordings of graphic 911 calls from public release, but the draft narrows the scope to those murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Secretly Drafted CT Bill: Sandy Hook Details Would Remain Blocked

Secretly Drafted CT Bill: Sandy Hook Details Would Remain Blocked --The only reason the public was made aware of this bill, drafted in secret, was because The Hartford Courant obtained an email regarding the drafting of a 'special act.' Secretly Drafted Bill Would Leave Release of Some Newtown Investigative Records Up to Families 22 May 2013 A secretly drafted bill to block release of photos, tapes of 911 calls and death certificates related to the Dec. 14 Newtown elementary school massacre could be acted on in the General Assembly as early as the end of the week, officials said Wednesday. Family members of victims would have discretion over release of some of the records. A draft of the bill was released Wednesday afternoon by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's office, which has been working behind the scenes in recent weeks on drafting the language with legislative leaders and the office of the state's top prosecutor, Chief State's Attorney Kevin Kane. Word of the planned legislation was kept from the public until Tuesday, when The Courant obtained a copy of an email written by a Kane assistant that said Malloy's legal staff told him a draft of a "special act" would be quickly "forthcoming." A Courant story about the secret plan to withhold information on the Newtown investigation has sparked intense interest and concern in Connecticut and nationwide -- based both on what the bill would do and the way it was put together outside the normal legislative process, without a public hearing. Lawmakers at first were talking about trying to vote on the bill Wednesday, but they abandoned that idea as criticism mounted. [See also: Sandy Hook Shooting 'Oddities'.]
