August 12, 2011 by legitgov

Judge Denies Bid to Force Investigation of Psychologist's Role at Guantánamo 12 Aug 2011 New York State cannot be forced to investigate a psychologist accused by a human rights organization of overseeing coercive interrogation tactics at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, a judge in Manhattan ruled on Thursday. The rights group, the Center for Justice and Accountability, had brought a suit claiming that the psychologist, John Francis Leso, helped develop a plan of coercive techniques torture, including sleep deprivation and isolation, to use on detainees prisoners at Guantánamo. The suit was brought on behalf of Steven Reisner, a psychologist and an assistant professor of clinical psychiatry at the New York University School of Medicine. It sought an investigation of Dr. Leso by a professional disciplinary office in the state's Education Department that regulates psychologists' licenses. But in a 12-page ruling filed in State Supreme Court, Justice Saliann Scarpulla wrote that Dr. Reisner had no standing to force an investigation.

Clarke airs suspicions over Sept. 11 intel failures 11 Aug 2011 Richard Clarke, who served in two administrations as a White House counter-terrorism adviser, said he now suspects the CIA hid its knowledge that two of the Sept. 11 hijackers had entered the United States because the agency had tried – and failed – to recruit them as informants. ..Clarke says it is "the only conceivable reason that I've been able to come up with" to explain why the CIA failed to inform the FBI or the White House of the would-be hijackers presence. Clarke goes on to say he believes "there was a high-level decision in the CIA ordering people not to share information," all but pointing a finger at the CIA Director at the time, George J. Tenet.

Pentagon loses billion-dollar hypersonic aircraft over Pacific Ocean 11 Aug 2011 The Pentagon lost contact with the Falcon HTV-2 as it attempted to conduct a hypersonic test flight over the Pacific Ocean. After successfully launching from Vandenberg Air Force base in California, the HTV-2 separated from the Minotaur IV rocket at a sub-orbital altitude and began its return to Earth. All seemed well until the billion dollar aircraft went silent during the gliding stage of the flight, when it was slated to fly above the Pacific at 20 times the speed of sound (13,000 mph), or Mach 20, in a series of complex maneuvers.

Democrats doubt Barack Obama's reelection chances 09 Aug 2011 President Barack Obama is facing mounting doubts within his own party [sic] about his re-election prospects, with fellow Democrats beginning to ask if Hillary Clinton would have made a better president. Mr Obama's capitulation to Republicans in the recent tussle over deficit reduction is being seen as the lowest point of his presidency and the latest in a series of blows to the liberal agenda. Faced with the staunch opposition of the Tea Party contingent of the Republican Party, he agreed to widespread cuts in government spending without winning any revenue increases in exchange.

Verizon union members say strike worth hardship

August 10, 2011 by legitgov

Verizon union members say strike worth hardship --Job security, pensions at issue 10 Aug 2011 On Sunday, about 6,000 Verizon Communications Inc. employees in Massachusetts walked off the job after the unions and the company failed to reach an agreement on a new contract. The strike is unusual in its size - 45,000 people nationwide and one of the largest in a decade - and for its timing, during a period of historically high unemployment and concerns about another recession. The unions - the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and Communications Workers of America - are fighting to keep employee pensions, affordable health care benefits, and a clause that makes it more difficult for Verizon to lay off union workers.

Dem spokesman accuses GOP of dirty tricks in Waukesha vote count 09 Aug 2011 A state Democratic Party spokesman accused a Republican official Tuesday night of tampering with votes in the tight 8th Senate District recall race.

We believe the very fate of the Wisconsin Senate hangs in the balance and is in the hands of a woman who has already shown extreme incompetence. We believe there’s dirty tricks afoot."

Mark Duggan did not shoot at police, says IPCC

Mark Duggan did not shoot at police, says IPCC --IPCC releases initial findings of ballistics tests in police shooting of Mark Duggan, whose death sparked London riots 09 Aug 2011 Mark Duggan, whose shooting by police sparked London's riots, did not fire a shot at police officers before they killed him, the Independent Police Complaints Commission said on Tuesday. Releasing the initial findings of ballistics tests, the police watchdog said a CO19 firearms officer fired two bullets, and that a bullet that lodged in a police radio was "consistent with being fired from a police gun". One theory, not confirmed by the IPCC, is that the bullet became lodged in the radio from a ricochet or after passing through Duggan.

Two American men CAN sue Donald Rumsfeld after 'being tortured by U.S. army in Iraq' --Pair say their rights of 'habeas corpus' were violated 09 Aug 2011 Two American men will be allowed to sue former Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld over claims that they were unfairly tortured by U.S. troops in Iraq.

The pair argue that their rights of 'habeas corpus' - the legal term for unlawful detention - were violated, and are seeking damages from Rumsfeld, who was succeeded by Robert Gates in December 2007, and unnamed others.
