Nato must send in troops to save Misrata, say 'rebels' 16 Apr 2011 The city that has become the epicentre of a desperate battle [for oil] by 'Libyan rebels' against forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi came under renewed pounding today amid 'mounting evidence' of the use of cluster bombs against the besieged civilian population and calls [by Exxon Mobil/BP] for Nato to send in ground troops.

With Obama's signature, wolf hunts resume

April 16, 2011 by legitgov

The day ends in 'y,' so it's time for another Obama betrayal of the Left: With Obama's signature, wolf hunts resume 15 Apr 2011 Political analysts expect President Obama to sign the budget reconciliation bill Congress recently passed. When he does, he’ll open the door to wolf hunting again in Montana and Idaho. Two members of Congress -- Sen. John Tester of Montana and Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho -- inserted language into the budget bill that would return wolf management slaughter to Montana and Idaho state control. Both states held wolf hunts in 2009 after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service lifted Endangered Species List protection on the species, but were blocked from doing so in 2010 by a ruling by federal judge Donald Molloy.

5 US-led soldiers killed in Afghan war 16 Apr 2011 Five US-led soldiers have been killed in an attack on an Afghan army base in eastern Afghanistan amid a surge in attacks against foreign troops in the country. In a Saturday statement, the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) confirmed the death toll from the attack in eastern Afghanistan, Xinhua news agency reported. This week, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton refrained from expounding on a timeline about the US military pullout from war-weary Afghanistan. [US: Leave. That's the message delivered loud and clear, over and over. Even the delusional dirt-bags running the US government should be able to grasp the concept.]

Germany Denies Asylum to US Iraq Deserter --When Shepherd was ordered back to Iraq, he felt he could not continue to take part in what he said was a "completely illegal war" and became the first US Soldier to claim asylum in Germany. 05 Apr 2011 Germany has denied asylum to Andre Shepherd, a former US Soldier who deserted his unit in Iraq citing opposition to the war, a spokesman for the federal office for migration and refugees said on Tuesday. "The asylum claim was rejected because there is no evidence to suggest that the asylum seeker could have been involved in war crimes or other crimes during another posting to Iraq," the office said in a statement.

Private visits with WikiLeaks suspect denied --Private meetings with US Congressman, UN torture investigator and Amnesty International forbidden by military 15 Apr 2011 The lawyer for an Army private suspected of giving classified material to WikiLeaks says the military is refusing to grant his client private jailhouse visits with a congressman, a United Nations torture investigator and Amnesty International. Civilian attorney David Coombs said Thursday military officials say none of these visits with Pfc. Bradley Manning would constitute official government business, so the meetings must be monitored.

April 16, 2011 by legitgov

House of Representatives Votes to End Medicare and Cut Taxes for Wealthy, Corporations 15 Apr 2011 The United States House of Representatives has passed the Paul Ryan (R) budget blueprint that would end Medicare as we know it, convert Medicaid to a block grant program which would sharply curtail health care availability to the poor and nursing home care to seniors, while further cutting dramatically into aid to those in need of food stamp programs and other social safety net assistance. The Resolution would also effectively repeal the Affordable Care Act while reducing the highest tax rates paid by the nation’s wealthiest citizens by 10% and reduce taxes paid by U.S. corporations.

April 15, 2011 by legitgov

White House draft bill expands DHS cyber responsibilities --DHS oversees all civilian cybersecurity 14 Apr 2011 Under a White House plan, the Homeland Security Department will have far-reaching oversight over all civilian agency computer networks. The proposal would codify much of the administration's memo from July 2010 expanding DHS's cyber responsibilities for civilian networks. The White House, however, is taking those responsibilities further, according to a source familiar with the document. The administration drafted a legislative proposal to give DHS many, if not all, of the same authorities for the .gov networks that the Defense Department has for the .mil networks.

In the joint article, Obama reverses America's earlier cautious approach to the conflict - which saw the US hand control to Nato and withdraw fighter planes just days after the intervention began – and signs up his country to the more muscular intervention of his European colleagues.

April 15, 2011 by legitgov

ABC News: Pat Tillman's Mom Wants General Stanley McChrystal Removed From Chairing White House Initiative 14 Apr 2011 President Obama named retired General Stanley McChrystal to co-chair a White House commission on military families this week, but according to perhaps the most prominent military family of the last decade, McChrystal is unfit for that duty. Mary Tillman, mother of Pat Tillman, the former professional football player turned Army Ranger who was tragically killed by friendly fire 7 years ago, is angered by McChrystal's appointment, telling ABC News that he was part of the propaganda effort pushing the false tale that Tillman had been killed by the enemy, and keeping the truth from the world -- and their family.

April 15, 2011 by legitgov

Gag me with a chainsaw! US Senate asks UN to rescind Gaza War report 15 Apr 2011 The US Senate asked the United Nations to rescind a report on the Gaza War after its lead author said he was wrong to conclude Israel targeted civilians during the 2008-2009 offensive. The text was adopted by unanimous consent. It also [*insanely*] urges UN chief Ban Ki-moon to help "reform" the Human Rights Council "so that it no longer unfairly, disproportionately, and falsely criticizes Israel on a regular basis."

'US drone raids to persist in Pakistan'

April 15, 2011 by legitgov

'US drone raids to persist in Pakistan' 15 Apr 2011 CIA director Leon Panetta has told Pakistani intelligence officials that the US has no intention of stopping its unauthorized drone operations in Pakistan, a report says. During Monday talks with Panetta, Lieutenant General Ahmad Shuja Pasha, the head of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, asked Washington to halt its drone attacks in the country, AFP reported on Thursday. The director of the US Central Intelligence Agency, however, responded by referring to the spy agency's 'duty' to protect America by carrying out such operations against militants [slaughtering civilians] in Pakistan, the report added.

Contact Group meeting in Doha plans imperialist carve-up of Libya

April 15, 2011 by legitgov

Contact Group meeting in Doha plans imperialist carve-up of Libya By Alex Lantier 14 Apr 2011 The Contact Group, an assembly of foreign ministers from Western and Arab countries backing the Benghazi-based Libyan rebels of the Interim Transitional National Council (INC), met yesterday in Doha, Qatar. The meeting highlighted the INC’s role as a stooge of the imperialist powers, particularly the US, Britain and France, who are promoting it as their proxy force in a bitter civil war in Libya... INC member Mahmoud Chammam called on the US government to "liberate the funds" of the Gaddafi regime--that is, an estimated $30 billion of Libyan oil earnings held by Western banks. Normally used to pay for Libyan social spending and public sector workers’ salaries, these funds would be stolen by the major banks to pay for INC weapons and supplies.

Obama proposes trillions in spending cuts

April 14, 2011 by legitgov

Obama proposes trillions in spending cuts By Patrick Martin 14 Apr 2011 President Barack Obama outlined plans Wednesday for slashing $4 trillion from the federal budget deficit over the next 12 years, the bulk of it by cutting domestic social spending, particularly in the area of health care. His speech at George Washington University in the US capital demonstrates the consensus in the American ruling elite for a frontal assault on social programs upon which tens of millions of working people, children and retirees depend. Obama largely accepted the deficit reduction framework set by the Republican right.

April 14, 2011 by legitgov

Russia bans endangered polar bear hunt this year 14 Apr 2011 Russia has banned the hunting of polar bears this year, thanks to a group with close ties to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, a longtime defender of large endangered animals. Putin last year helped scientists put a tracking collar on a sedated male polar bear. Before leaving the bear, he patted the animal affectionately, shook his paw and said "take care." He also joined scientists last year in studying the gray whale off Russia's Pacific Coast... Putin also has championed the cause of endangered big cats. [Thank you, Prime Minister Putin!]

US police increasingly peeping at e-mail, instant messages

April 14, 2011 by legitgov

US police increasingly peeping at e-mail, instant messages 12 Apr 2011 Law enforcement organizations are making tens of thousands of requests for private electronic information from companies such as Sprint, Facebook and AOL, but few detailed statistics are available, according to a privacy researcher. Police and other agencies have "enthusiastically embraced" asking for e-mail, instant messages and mobile-phone location data, but there's no U.S. federal law that requires the reporting of requests for stored communications data, wrote Christopher Soghoian, a doctoral candidate at the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University, in a newly published paper.
