Britain faces legal challenge over secret US 'kill list' in Afghanistan 09 Aug 2012 Britain's role in supplying information to an American military "kill list" in Afghanistan is being subjected to legal challenge amid growing international concern over targeted strikes against suspected insurgents and drug traffickers.

Legal letters sent to Soca and the MoD state the involvement of UK officials in these decisions "may give rise to criminal offences and thus be unlawful".

Company previously known as Blackwater agrees to $7.5 million fine in arms smuggling case --Federal prosecutors and law enforcement agents: Blackwater, which has held billions in U.S. security contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan, repeatedly flouted U.S. laws. 07 Aug 2012 The international security contractor formerly known as Blackwater has agreed to pay a $7.5 million fine to settle federal criminal charges related to arms smuggling and other crimes.

August 9, 2012 by legitgov

Fox News poll: Obama's lead grows as Romney's support slips 09 Aug 2012 Mitt Romney has had a tough couple of weeks on the campaign trail -- and it shows in the latest Fox News poll. After a barrage of campaign ads, negative news coverage of his overseas trip and ongoing talk about his tax returns, Romney's favorable rating and standing in the trial ballot have declined. As a result, President Obama has opened his biggest lead since Romney became the presumptive Republican nominee. The president would take 49 percent of the vote compared to Romney's 40 percent in a head-to-head matchup if the election were held today, the poll found.

Rand Paul: Government spied on Americans 'gazillions' of times

August 9, 2012 by legitgov

Rand Paul: Government spied on Americans 'gazillions' of times 09 Aug 2012 Does the government really peer into the personal business of everyone in America? According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) has put the number of instances that the feds have spied on Americans in the "gazillions." In a column published this week by the frequent cable news commentator, Judge Napolitano explains that members of Congress are barred from quoting certain statistics disclosed during secret security briefing, so Sen. Paul has reportedly relayed the actual information as accurately as he can without providing a real number. Gazillion, suggests Napolitano, is close enough.

Appeals court tosses warrantless wiretapping suit

August 9, 2012 by legitgov

Appeals court tosses warrantless wiretapping suit 07 Aug 2012 A federal appeals court has overturned a court decision awarding $40,800 in damages and $2.5 million in legal fees to an Islamic charity's lawyers who claimed they were illegally surveilled under President [sic] George W. Bush's warrantless wiretapping program. A unanimous, three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that the lawyers for the Al-Haramin Islamic Foundation could not recover damages, or the related legal fees, because Congress never explicitly waived sovereign immunity - a legal doctrine which limits lawsuits for money damages against the federal government to cases specifically authorized by law.

New York Times complains to police over treatment of photographer 06 Aug 2012 The New York Times has complained to the city's police department after one of its photographers said he was assaulted by officers who arrested him on Saturday. Robert Stolarik, a freelance photographer, claimed a New York Police Department (NYPD) officer "slammed" his camera into his face before he was dragged to the ground, kicked and arrested. Stolarik was on assignment with two other reporters in the Bronx when he was stopped by police on Saturday evening. Police ordered Stolarik to stop taking pictures of a teenage girl being arrested.

NYPD Unveils Crime- and Terror-Fighting 'Domain Awareness System' 08 Aug 2012 A dramatic new way to track criminals and potential terrorists [facilitate false flags] was unveiled Wednesday by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.

Recent extreme heatwaves 'a result of global warming'

August 8, 2012 by legitgov

Recent extreme heatwaves 'a result of global warming' 07 Aug 2012 Global warming is responsible for the recent spate of summer heatwaves, according to James Hansen, the scientist who first alerted the world to the dangers of climate change. Dr Hansen, director of Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, said that the "climate dice" are now loaded in favour of extreme heatwaves which now affect 10 per cent of the Earth's surface, compared with about 1 per cent in the period between 1951 to 1980. Dr Hansen said that at least three extreme summers over the past decade, the 2003 heatwave in Europe which killed more than 50,000 people, the 2010 hot summer in Moscow and last year's droughts in Texas and Oklahoma, were almost certainly the result of man-made climate change rather than natural events.

August 8, 2012 by legitgov

Court blesses 'no-demonstration' zone at '04 GOP convention 04 Aug 2012 A federal appeals court issued a ruling this week that could embolden authorities in Tampa and Charlotte to keep a tighter rein on protests at the upcoming Republican and Democratic National Conventions. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled Thursday that it was constitutional to limit demonstrations at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York to areas where they may not have been seen or heard by many convention attendees. "We conclude that the restriction on speech was a reasonable time, place, and manner restriction," Chief Judge Dennis Jacobs wrote, in an opinion joined by Judges Pierre Leval and Debra Livingston.

Fenton would have had to have serious concerns to break confidentiality with her patient to reach out to the police officer or others, the sources said.

Israel Had Intel on Attack That Killed 16 in Egypt

August 7, 2012 by legitgov

Israel Had Intel on Attack That Killed 16 in Egypt 06 Aug 2012 Israeli intelligence services had reports of an impending attack from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula and therefore were able to thwart the latest assault by suspected Islamist militants who killed 16 Egyptian soldiers at a border checkpoint, then stole two of their vehicles to burst through a security fence into Israel, Israel's chief military spokesman said Monday. The attack Sunday evening -- which Egypt and Israel blamed on Islamist militants from the Gaza Strip and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula -- was one of the bloodiest in years and the deadliest against Egyptian troops who have increasingly become targets of militants along the desert border.

Leftover GMO corn stubs 'a field of little spears' wreaking havoc on tires

August 7, 2012 by legitgov

Leftover GMO corn stubs 'a field of little spears' wreaking havoc on tires 02 Aug 2012 Corn modified (genetically modified organisms) to stand tall and tough against pests is also wreaking havoc on tractor tires. Mark Newhall of Farm Show Magazine tells American Public Media's Marketplace that after the stalks are cut during harvest, the leftover stubs are like "having a field of little spears." So instead of tractor tires lasting the usual five to six years, they're getting chewed up after just one or two years. One tractor tire can cost thousands of dollars, and some tractors have as many as eight tires. How does a modern farmer fight back against a genetically modified enemy intent on destroying the very thing his business rides on? The same way our military defends against its enemies: Kevlar. [Make no mistake about it: Monsanto is the enemy of mankand.]

Extreme summer heat linked to climate change, scientists say

August 6, 2012 by legitgov

Extreme summer heat linked to climate change, scientists say 06 Aug 2012 Exceedingly high summer temperatures, longer summers and related catastrophes, such as wildfire and drought, are poised to be the norm, and they are driven by climate change global warming, according to a new research paper published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In an opinion article over the weekend in the Washington Post that previewed the findings, the paper's lead author, James E. Hansen wrote: "It is no longer enough to say that global warming will increase the likelihood of extreme weather and to repeat the caveat that no individual weather event can be directly linked to climate change. To the contrary, our analysis shows that, for the extreme hot weather of the recent past, there is virtually no explanation other than climate change." [Frank 'Putz' Luntz and his corpora-terrorist overlords -- the Koch-sucker brothers and Exxon Mobil -- have been working with Faux News to get the term 'global warming' stricken from the media landscape. We will not cater to their syntactical fascism. --LRP]
