US debt-reduction panel spirals toward failure --Barring breakthrough, super dictatorship to concede failure on Monday [Just save everyone time and declare failure *today.*] 20 Nov 2011 A months-long effort to set U.S. finances on a sustainable course appeared likely to end in failure on Monday as lawmakers in Congress were unable to bridge a deep divide over taxes and benefits. Republican and Democratic participants cast doubt on any possibility of agreement in appearances on Sunday political talk shows. Without some unexpected breakthrough, aides said, a 12-member bipartisan "super committee" tasked with drawing up a deficit-cutting plan will admit defeat on Monday.

The Grid: A Digital Frontier

November 20, 2011 by legitgov

The Grid: A Digital Frontier --Repost of loldhs pr0f By A Guest 18 Nov 2011 So, early this morning I was linked to an article about SCADA pumps from someone in IRC... My eyes were drawn, nary, pulled, to a particular quote. 'In an email sent several hours after this article was first published, DHS spokesman Peter Boogaard wrote: "DHS and the FBI are gathering facts surrounding the report of a water pump failure in Springfield Illinois. At this time there is no credible corroborated data that indicates a risk to critical infrastructure entities or a threat to public safety."' This was stupid. You know. Insanely stupid. I dislike, immensely, how the DHS tend to downplay how absolutely FUCKED the state of national infrastructure is... So, y'know. The city of South Houston has a really insecure system.

"The rest has fallen on land" in and around Fukushima, said Hiroshi Takahashi, a researcher at the institute in Ibaraki, northeast of Tokyo.

LOL! Herman Cain Suggests Taliban is Running Libya 18 Nov 2011 Herman Cain suggested Friday that the Taliban were playing a role in Libya's new government.

Cain has spent the week trying to calm jitters about his foreign policy after he struggled to answer whether he supported President Barack Obama's approach to Libya. He ended the week trying to blame reporters for the moment, which was captured on video and quickly spread around the Internet.

Appeals court weighs suits of four terrorists challenging Supermax move 18 Nov 2011 An attorney for four convicted terrorists asked a federal appellate court Thursday to find that the U.S. government violated the prisoners' due-process rights when it moved them to the federal Supermax prison in southern Colorado. The four men - Omar Rezaq, Ibrahim Elgabrowny, El-Sayyid Nosair, and Mohammed Saleh - were moved to Supermax from less-restrictive prisons between 1997 and 2003. The prisoners say they did nothing while in custody to warrant the step up in confinement and that the government gave them no legitimate chance to show they could be moved back to lower-security prisons.

Airstrike Against Iranian Nuclear Facilities Could Kill 100s of North Koreans and Russians

November 17, 2011 by legitgov

Airstrike Against Iranian Nuclear Facilities Could Kill 100s of North Koreans and Russians By John Daly 16 Nov 2011 As the drums for direct military intervention to derail Iran's purported covert military nuclear weapons program beat louder in both Jerusalem and Washington, an overlooked issue is the possibility of international "collateral damage," to use the Pentagon's favourite euphemism for civilian casualties. On 14 November South Korea's Chosun Ilbo stated, "Hundreds of North Korean scientists and engineers are working at about 10 nuclear and missile facilities in Iran, including Natanz..." Russian technicians also remain at Iran's first nuclear electrical energy facility, Bushehr. So, any aerial strikes against Iran's nuclear facilities could result in significant numbers of dead Russian and North Korean specialists as "collateral damage," with all the diplomatic uncertainties that might ensue from Moscow and Pyongyang as the body bags start arriving home.
