Turkey allows NATO to use its airbase for ground operations into Syria --Turkey to take in NATO ground forces 19 Jun 2011 Turkey has agreed that NATO can turn its airbase in Turkey into a base for ground operations into Syria. The country will become the main base in the area for the US-led military alliance's ground forces. NATO's Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has said the alliance will transfer the bulk of its ground forces from a military base in the city of Heidelberg in southwestern Germany. Other troops will arrive from Spain to be placed at the Izmir Air Station in western Turkey, which will now become the centre for ground troops. [Gee, if I was George W. Bush, I'd be the most frustrated person (or whatever) on earth! Barack Obama has sixteen pots boiling on the stove -- illegal invasions/occupations/killer drone strikes/CIA coups all over the world -- and he's generated virtually *no* vitriol/dissent from liberals. MSNBC worships the guy! And, Obama's won the Nobel Peace Prize, to boot! George W. Bush was reviled/protested for doing half of what Barack Obama has done - and, save CLG, rarely does anyone mention that fact. --LRP/MDR]

June 20, 2011 by legitgov

The Architecture of Intimidation, Pt. 1: Detained at O'Hare By Kevin Barrett 19 Jun 2011 It seems I am back on the slow-fly list. Returning on Friday from my speaking tour of Belgium and Germany, I was detained by the US Immigration and Naturalization* (sic) Service for roughly two hours. My colleague Dr. Suleyman Kurter and I had our passports confiscated as we attempted to clear Customs at the O'Hare Airport checkpoint. We were forced to remain seated, under observation, without the right to make a phone call or even to use any electronic devices such as telephone or laptop. So we were unable to notify the person who was picking us up that we had been detained. When we asked our captors why we were being held, they told us that they didn't know.

Supreme Court Blocks Sex Discrimination Class-Action Suit Against Wal-Mart --Court divided 5-to-4 along ideological lines --Decision to 'almost certainly affect all sorts of other class-action suits, including ones asserting antitrust, securities and product liability violations' 20 Jun 2011 The Supreme Court on Monday threw out the largest employment discrimination case in the nation's history.

The lawsuit sought back pay that could have amounted to billions of dollars... The court did not decide whether Wal-Mart had in fact discriminated against the women, only that they could not proceed as a class.

BP Wins a Big One in Oil Spill Litigation 17 Jun 2011 Ruling in favor of Transocean and BP, a federal judge on Thursday dismissed third-party environmental claims in a giant pleading bundle in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill litigation, saying the fact that the oil flow has stopped makes those lawsuits irrelevant.

Missing Iraq cash 'as high as $18bn' --The Bush regime flew in a total of $20bn in cash into the country in 2004. Iraq's parliament speaker tells Al Jazeera unaccounted reconstruction money is three times the reported $6.6bn. 19 Jun 2011 Osama al-Nujaifi, the Iraqi parliament speaker, has told Al Jazeera that the amount of Iraqi money unaccounted for by the US is $18.7bn - three times more than the reported $6.6bn. Just before departing for a visit to the US, al-Nujaifi said that he has received a report this week based on information from US and Iraqi auditors that the amount of money withdrawn from a fund from Iraqi oil proceeds, but unaccounted for, is much more than the $6.6bn reported missing last week. [$20 billion in cash, Bush the a**wipe gave to his corpora-terrorist cronies. Oh, but we can't get a road built here in the US or get the public option, because Bush and Obomba, his lapdog successor, want to continue these illegal wars and occupations for oil, gas and opium?

Fukushima workers had to bring their own protective gear: Report 19 Jun 2011 A new report says Japan's tsunami-ravaged nuclear plant was so unprepared for the disaster that workers had to bring protective gear and an emergency manual from distant buildings and borrow equipment from a contractor. The report, released Saturday by plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co., is based on interviews of workers and plant data. It portrays chaos amid the desperate and ultimately unsuccessful battle to protect the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant from meltdown, and shows that workers struggled with unfamiliar equipment and fear of radiation exposure.
