Iraq: Sunni vice president pledges to fight arrest

February 21, 2012 by legitgov

Iraq: Sunni vice president pledges to fight arrest 20 Feb 2012 Iraq's Sunni vice president asked for popular support Monday to fight government charges that he commandeered death squads and said he would continue to defy arrest with the help of the nation's powerful Kurds in a showdown that tests the limits of Baghdad's reach. The government's case against Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi deepens tensions in a country still splintered by Sunni and Shiite sectarian rivalries. It now also threatens to draw a new wedge between Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite, and Kurdish leaders in Iraq's North who refuse to hand over al-Hashemi for trial.

Bagram prisoner's bid for freedom blocked in UK court by US resistance

February 21, 2012 by legitgov

Bagram prisoner's bid for freedom blocked in UK court by US resistance 20 Feb 2012 Britain's Court of Appeal has accepted that the government has been unable to comply with an order to obtain the release of a Pakistani man from a U.S. military prison in Afghanistan because "the Americans are not going to play ball." In December, lawyers for Yunus Rahmatullah won a writ of habeas corpus from the court to compel British officials to bring the prisoner before the court. But on Monday government lawyers said the U.S. has refused to release the prisoner it has held for eight years, and the Court of Appeal accepted that outcome. "This is far from over," said Clair Algar, Reprieve's executive director. "The British government's failure to persuade its supposedly closest ally to honor agreements signed between the two countries has left it open to war crimes charges. The government now faces yet another investigation over its involvement in torture and rendition," Algar said.

NSA: Al Qaeda, Foreign Governments Might Hire Anonymous

February 21, 2012 by legitgov

US Stuxnet sociopaths planning their next false flag to blame Anonymous: NSA: Al Qaeda, Foreign Governments Might Hire Anonymous --U.S. Official Signals Growing Concern Over Anonymous Group's Capabilities 21 Feb 2012 The director of the National Security Agency has warned that the hacking group Anonymous could have the ability within the next year or two to bring about a limited power outage through a cyberattack. Gen. Keith Alexander, the director, provided his assessment in meetings at the White House and in other private sessions, according to people familiar with the gatherings. Possible scenarios discussed, the former official said, included one in which a foreign government developed the attack capability and outsourced it to a group like Anonymous, or if a U.S. adversary like al Qaeda hired hackers to mount a cyberattack. [LOL! Since al-CIAduh's already on the US payroll, I doubt that Anonymous would take the job!]

Hacker group Anonymous threatens Vic Toews

Hacker group Anonymous threatens Vic Toews 20 Feb 2012 The hacker group Anonymous is demanding Public Safety Minister Vic Toews kill the Internet surveillance bill and resign or it will release "information" during what it calls "Operation White North." Two videos posted to YouTube feature a masked man and voice-overs that condemn the proposed Protecting Children from Internet Predators Act (Bill C-30). "All this legislation does is give your corrupted government more power to control its citizens," a synthesized voice says in one of the videos still posted to the site Monday. "We know all about you, Mr. Toews, and during Operation White North we will release what we have unless you scrap this bill," it states.

'Iran set to build first cyber army' 20 Feb 2012 Director of Iran's Passive Defense Organization has announced plans to build the first Iranian cyber army following the successful launch of the cyber defense headquarters, Press TV reports. "The US is downsizing its army for bigger cyber defense infrastructure. So countries like Iran also have to set up and upgrade their cyber defense headquarters and even [build] a cyber army," Brigadier General Gholamreza Jalali said in a Press TV interview on the last day of the first national conference on cyber defense. Iran launched a cyber defense headquarters four months ago.

Press TV signals jammed in Europe: Report

Press TV signals jammed in Europe: Report 20 Feb 2012 Jamming signals have been reportedly interrupting the broadcast of Press TV, Iran's 24-hour English-language news channel, in various locations across Europe. Press TV viewers in Europe say the frequent attacks last three to four minutes each time. Some reports indicate that the news channel's online stream is also targeted at the same time as jamming signals disrupt the broadcast of the channel. Italian viewers said Saturday was the fifth consecutive day of "Press TV signal black-out in Italy."

Fukushima manager dismisses fears that reactors are overheating again

Fukushima manager dismisses fears that reactors are overheating again --Asked repeatedly to explain the dramatic rise in temperature, Takahashi said the cause had been traced to a faulty thermometer. 20 Feb 2012 The manager of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan has conceded that it will be very difficult to remove the facility's melted nuclear fuel, but dismissed fears that one of the damaged reactors had started overheating again. "Our main challenge is to now remove the nuclear fuel from the reactors," Takeshi Takahashi told visiting journalists on Monday. Fears rose this month that fuel in the No 2 reactor was heating up again, prompting the plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) to inject more cooling water along with boric acid, which is used to prevent a nuclear chain reaction.

Greeks protest cuts on eve of bailout decision

Greeks protest cuts on eve of bailout decision 19 Feb 2012 Several thousand Greeks demonstrated on Sunday against punishing austerity measures to reduce the country's debt, on the eve of make-or-break talks in Brussels on a 130-billion-euro ($171 billion) bailout to avert bankruptcy. Riot police shielded the national assembly, braced against a repeat of riots a week ago that saw buildings torched and looted across downtown Athens after a much larger rally involving tens of thousands. Banners such as one reading "Down with the memorandum of hunger" bore testimony to the anger many Greeks feel towards a political elite that allowed the country over the years to rack up a national debt worth 160 percent of national output while the super-rich took advantage of lax tax collection [as with the US].

Judge bars screeners from revealing Guantanamo mail

Judge bars screeners from revealing Guantanamo mail --Judge: 'At this point, we're hoping that this ruling will end this controversy.' [*Not.*] 19 Feb 2012 Mail inspectors at the US-run prison in Guantanamo Bay have been barred from disclosing the contents of attorney-client correspondence in a case that could later apply to other detainees, a defense lawyer said. Judge James Pohl's decision, made this month in the case of accused USS Cole bombing mastermind Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri but not yet published as it is still under Pentagon review, was described to AFP by his attorney Richard Kammen. Pohl "greatly restricted" the mail screener's ability "to share anything they learned with anyone other than the judge," said Kammen.

US Gen. Dempsey: Iran rational actor, not after nukes 20 Feb 2012 A top US military official has described Iran as a rational actor in the international arena, stating that the Islamic Republic is not after producing nuclear weapons. Speaking in a nationally televised interview with the CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" show on Sunday, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey said, "We are of the opinion that Iran is a rational actor." Dempsey pointed out that US officials aren't convinced Iran has decided to build atomic armaments. "We also know, or we believe we know that Iran has not decided to make a nuclear weapon," General Dempsey said.

Experts fear diseases 'impossible to treat'

Experts fear diseases 'impossible to treat' --Alarming rise in bacteria resistant to antibiotics, Government report finds 20 Feb 2012 Britain is facing a "massive" rise in antibiotic-resistant blood poisoning caused by the bacterium E.coli - bringing closer the spectre of diseases that are impossible to treat. Experts say the growth of antibiotic resistance now poses as great a threat to global health as the emergence of new diseases such as Aids and pandemic flu. Professor Peter Hawkey, a clinical microbiologist and chair of the Government's antibiotic-resistance working group, said that antibiotic resistance had become medicine's equivalent of climate change.

Pakistan won't help US attack Iran, says Zardari 18 Feb 2012 Pakistan will not assist the US if it attacks Iran, Islamabad Friday assured Tehran. Pakistan will not provide Americans airbases to launch attack on its neighbour, President Asif Ali Zardari said after the third trilateral summit of Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan. At the summit the three states expressed their resolve to work collectively for peace and stability in the region and enhancement of mutual cooperation in different sectors, particularly economy and trade.

FBI will shutdown the Internet on March 8

February 19, 2012 by legitgov

FBI will shutdown the Internet on March 8 19 Feb 2012 The Internet could go dark for millions of users as early as March 8 because of a virus that has corrupted computers in more than 100 countries. Last year, authorities in Estonia apprehended six men believed responsible for creating a malicious computer script called the DNSChanger Trojan. Once set loose on the Web, the worm corrupted computers in upwards of 100 countries, including an estimated 500,000 in America alone. Though the FBI has shut down the DNSChanger network and put up surrogate servers, they warned the solution was only temporary - and the court-ordered deadline is March 8.

Bird flu research to be published in full

February 19, 2012 by legitgov

Bird flu research to be published in full 17 Feb 2012 Two studies reporting what makes the H5N1 bird flu virus transmissible in mammals should be published fully, with no details left out, say flu experts meeting at the World Health Organisation in Geneva... The decision to publish comes just a few short weeks after the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB), the US's top biosecurity panel, asked these virologists not to publish the research in detail. The NSABB worried that bioterrorists would use the information to make dangerous, transmissible H5N1 - or that other, less careful researchers would repeat the work and let the virus get away.

Paul says US 'slipping into a fascist system'

February 19, 2012 by legitgov

Paul says US 'slipping into a fascist system' [Oh, I think the horse has galloped out of the barn on that one, accelerating geometrically after the 2000 coup d'etat and Bush's subsequent 9/11 Reichstag Fire. Nonetheless, you know you're in trouble when a presidential candidate is acknowledging the fact that the US is slipping into fascism.] 18 Feb 2012 Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul warned the U.S. is "slipping into a fascist system" dominated by government and businesses as he held a fiery rally Saturday night upstaging established Republican Party banquets a short distance away. The Texas congressman drew a couple thousand standing and chanting people to Kansas City's Union Station as the party's establishment dined on steak across the street at the Missouri GOP's annual conference. "We've slipped away from a true Republic," Paul said. "Now we're slipping into a fascist system where it's a combination of government and big business and authoritarian rule and the suppression of the individual rights of each and every American citizen." Several Republicans slipped away from the banquets to join the Paul rally. Paul repeatedly denounced President Barack Obama's recent enactment of a law requiring military custody of anyone suspected to be associated with al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] and involved in planning an attack on the U.S.

Study: Errors in 84 percent of SF foreclosures

Study: Errors in 84 percent of SF foreclosures 16 Feb 2012 More than 80 percent of residential mortgage loans that have gone into foreclosure in San Francisco have missing documents or signatures or otherwise violate the law, according to a review ordered by the city assessor. The results hint at potentially broader problems with how foreclosures have been handled since the collapse of the housing market. While many of the errors were technical and related to paperwork, the problem shows the state needs to change its antiquated real estate regulations, Assessor-Recorder Phil Ting said on Wednesday.

Foreclosure abuse rampant across U.S., experts say

February 19, 2012 by legitgov

Foreclosure abuse rampant across U.S., experts say 17 Feb 2012 A report this week showing rampant foreclosure abuse in San Francisco reflects similar levels of lender fraud and faulty documentation across the United States, say experts and officials who have done studies in other parts of the country. The audit of almost 400 foreclosures in San Francisco found that 84 percent of them appeared to be illegal, according to the study released by the California city on Wednesday. "The audit in San Francisco is the most detailed and comprehensive that has been done - but it's likely those numbers are comparable nationally," Diane Thompson, an attorney at the National Consumer Law Center, told Reuters.

BP idles large Washington state refinery after fire 18 Feb 2012 BP Plc idled production at its Cherry Point refinery in Washington state on Saturday, a day after a large fire broke out near the core crude oil unit of the third-largest plant on the West Coast. The sole crude distillation unit, or CDU, at the 225,000 barrel-per-day refinery was shut following the one-hour blaze on Friday, said BP spokesman Scott Dean. The fire started when residual crude oil shot out of a flange in a pipe between a heater and the vacuum unit, which boosts production on the crude unit, igniting the blaze, according to a notice the refinery filed overnight with the U.S. National Response Center.

High court blocks Mont. campaign money ruling

February 19, 2012 by legitgov

High court blocks Mont. campaign money ruling 17 Feb 2012 The Supreme Court on Friday blocked a Montana court ruling upholding limits on corporate campaign spending. The state court ruling appears to be at odds with the high court's 2010 decision striking down a federal ban on those campaign expenditures. The justices put the Montana ruling on hold while they consider an appeal from corporations seeking to be free of spending limits. The state argues, and the Montana Supreme Court agreed, that political corruption gave rise to the century-old ban on corporate campaign spending.

US gay marriage: law passes Maryland but vetoed in New Jersey

US gay marriage: law passes Maryland but vetoed in New Jersey 18 Feb 2012 The movement for same sex-marriage in the US lurched one step forward and took another step back last night as Maryland's House of Delegates approved a bill but New Jersey governor Chris Christie (R) vetoed a similar law in his own state. Late on Friday, legislators in Maryland voted 71-67 to allow gay marriage. Led by Governor Martin O'Malley (D), the party's leadership held together a coalition to reach the critical threshold. In New Jersey, Mr Christie wielded his promised veto on a bill that passed the Assembly on Thursday, saying that gay marriage was an issue that should be put to a referendum during the presidential election in November.

NSC wants rules on research that could lead to biological weapons

NSC wants rules on research that could lead to biological weapons 18 Feb 2012 The National Security Council is moving to exert greater federal control over scientific studies of highly lethal diseases and toxins in the face of mounting fears that the research could be used by terrorists and rogue states [aka the US], according to people with knowledge of the process. Under the NSC's guidance, the government plans to issue guidelines for research grants that would give agencies the authority to delay or restrict publication of findings they considered susceptible to "dual use" by terrorists or enemy states. "From our standpoint, it seems unreasonable for there to be approval of our research at every step of the way … and then, once we have completed critically important experiments, to have an outside group conclude we should not publish," said Dr. Yoshihiro Kawaoka, professor of virology at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, who helped touch off the controversy with his work on the H5N1 bird flu.

VA to Train Homeless Vets for National Cemeteries 16 Feb 2012 The Department of Veterans Affairs is hoping to move some of America's homeless veterans off the streets in part by giving them jobs at the country's national cemeteries. The apprenticeship program comes even as the union representing federal employees slammed the VA for cutting back on its federal workforce by hiring private contractors for caretaker jobs. John Gage, president of the American Federation of Government Employees, said in a statement last week that the outsourcing began during the Bush administration but has continued. Gage said the outsourcing violates the "Vow to Hire Heroes Act" intended to boost veteran employment. [The outsourcing *continued.* Do you hear that, Obamabots at MSNBC - or are you going to give Obusha a pass on this one, too? --LRP]

D.C. terrorism case: Suspect told others to be ready for battle, authorities said --Undercover FBI agents gave him gun, explosives that didn't work 18 Feb 2012 The Moroccan man accused of plotting to carry out what he thought would be a suicide bombing at the U.S. Capitol told acquaintances that America's war on terrorism was a war on Muslims and that they needed to be ready for battle, according to authorities.

On Friday, Amine El Khalifi's goal to detonate the vest at the Capitol ended with his arrest in an FBI sting, said U.S. authorities who had been monitoring him for nearly a year.

Hague: Nuclear Iran can plunge Mideast into cold war 18 Feb 2012 British Foreign Secretary William Hague claims that a "new cold war" could happen in the Middle East if Iran decides to have nuclear weapons. "If they [Iranians] obtain nuclear weapons capability, then I think other nations across the Middle East will want to develop nuclear weapons," Hague said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph. "And so, the most serious round of nuclear proliferation since nuclear weapons were invented would have begun with all the destabilizing effects in the Middle East. And the threat of a new cold war in the Middle East without necessarily all the safety mechanisms," he warned, referring to the US-USSR rivalry.
