Sandy Hook Officer: 'There were probably two shooters'

Sandy Hook Officer: 'There were probably two shooters' 27 Jul 2013 While law enforcement officials have released few details of the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre to Connecticut residents, state police and Newtown officers have increased their trips across the country, in some cases sharing graphic details of what they saw inside the school... In March, Danbury State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky, who will issue the final investigative [sic] report on the shooting, ordered police to stop discussing details of the investigation at conferences. In Orlando two weeks ago, about 800 law enforcement officers who attended a conference heard the first 10 minutes of the police dispatch tape from the morning of the school shooting played by officers Leonard Penna and Jason Flynn, according to accounts reported by the Daytona News Journal... Sedensky has denied The Courant's request to release the dispatch tape and 911 calls, saying they are part of the ongoing investigation. After playing the dispatch tape, Penna then graphically described for the audience what he saw that day, according to [media reports]. Penna told the group when he pulled into the parking lot he saw a black car with the passenger's door wide open and two black jackets laid on the ground. Penna said that he assumed it was the shooter's car and that since there were two jackets, there probably were two shooters. ...He then entered into the first classroom and heard a shot. 'My first thought was one of our guys shot him,' he said.

While Officials Released Few Details on Sandy Hook to CT residents, Police Talk Newtown Shooting Across U.S. 27 Jul 2013 While law enforcement officials have released few details of the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre to Connecticut residents, state police and Newtown officers have increased their trips across the country, in some cases sharing graphic details of what they [claim they] saw inside the school. In March, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and other politicians criticized state police for releasing details of the investigation at out-of-state conferences. A police report has been delayed for months, and state law enforcement officials have attempted to push through legislation intended to keep secret some details of the shootings that killed 20 first-graders and six adults. Since then, state and Newtown police have spoken at or are scheduled to speak at forums from Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. to Maine.

Ending a two day trip to Singapore, Vice President Joe Biden credited his country with maintaining peace and stability in the region for decades.

FBI admits to flying drones over US without warrants

FBI admits to flying drones over US without warrants 27 Jul 2013 The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) says it has used drones for domestic surveillance purposes in the United States at least ten times without obtaining warrants. In three additional cases, drones were authorized but "not actually used." Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Thursday published a letter from FBI Assistant Director Stephen D. Kelly, who admitted that the agency used unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) domestically, without gathering any warrants. "The FBI uses UAVs in very limited circumstances to conduct surveillance when there is a specific, operational need," the letter reads. "Since late 2006, the FBI has conducted surveillance using UAVs in eight criminal cases and two national security cases."

U.S. intends to send two Guantanamo detainees to Algeria

U.S. intends to send two Guantanamo detainees to Algeria 26 Jul 2013 The Obama administration said on Friday it plans to repatriate two inmates to Algeria from the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, resuming the transfer of detainees from the controversial prison for the first time in nearly a year. The step is the latest by President Barack Obama's administration to show his commitment to closing the prison, which has held dozens of prisoners - most without charge - for more than a decade. Obama promised to do away with the facility during his 2008 presidential campaign, citing its damage to the U.S. reputation around the world, but he has been unable to do so in 4 1/2 years in office.

The bloodied and mangled bodies of dozens of Morsi's Islamist supporters lined the floors of an improvised hospital in eastern Cairo on Saturday morning after Egyptian security forces launched an attack against demonstrators calling for Morsi's reinstatement. Nine others died in clashes in the coastal city of Alexandria, the Health Ministry said.

A security official told the AP news agency that most of the escapees were facing serious charges. Another report said a riot had taken place inside the al-Kwafiya prison. The jailbreak comes a day after the assassination of a prominent political activist triggered protests in the city, although it is not clear whether the two are connected.

Radiation 'millions of times higher' than Japan's acceptable limit detected in water at Fukushima

Radiation 'millions of times higher' than Japan's acceptable limit detected in water at Fukushima --Levels recorded haven't been seen since soon after 2011 disaster 27 Jul 2013 Extremely high concentrations of radiation have been detected in water from near one of the reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co.

The radiation is millions of times higher than Japan's acceptable limit under normal circumstances. Radiation of 750 million becquerels a liter of cesium-134 and 1.6 billion becquerels a liter of cesium-137 was recorded, Tepco said. The normal limits for the two potentially harmful isotopes are 60 and 90 becquerels, respectively.

Eric Holder Says Snowden Won't Be Tortured If Handed Over to U.S.

Eric Holder Says Snowden Won't Be Tortured If Handed Over to U.S. 26 Jul 2013 U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder wrote in a letter to Russia dated July 23 that if former security contractor Edward Snowden were extradited back to the United States, that he would be protected under the U.S. civilian court system and would not be tortured or face the death penalty. "We believe that these assurances eliminate these asserted grounds for Mr. Snowden's claim that he should be treated as a refugee or granted asylum, temporary or otherwise," Holder wrote in the two-page letter to Russian Justice Minister Alexander Konovalov. "Torture is unlawful in the United States," Holder wrote, without explicit reference to Manning. "If he returns to the United States, Mr. Snowden would promptly be brought before a civilian court." Holder also said that Snowden could have a lawyer present for any questioning if he is handed over. [You know you're living in a police state when... your government has to issue a special 'no torture' statement. --LRP]

Russia won't extradite Snowden to US - Kremlin 26 Jul 2013 Moscow says security agency FSB is in talks with the FBI over Snowden. But the whistleblower will not be extradited to the US, a Kremlin spokesman said, adding he's sure the fugitive NSA contractor will stop harming Washington if granted asylum in Russia.

Head of the FSB Aleksandr Bortnikov and FBI Chief Robert Muller are engaged in the discussion over Snowden, Putin's spokesman said Friday.

San Diego Mayor Will Seek Therapy Amid Harassment Scandal

San Diego Mayor Will Seek Therapy Amid Harassment Scandal 27 Jul 2013 San Diego Mayor Bob Filner said he'll check himself into clinic for therapy amid allegations he sexually harassed women, including a retired Navy rear admiral, a state university dean and his former spokeswoman. The 70-year-old Filner, elected to 10 terms in Congress, took office in December as the first Democrat in 20 years to lead America's eighth-largest city. The mayor, under fire since the accusations became public July 11, said he'll enter a behavioral counseling clinic Aug. 5 for two weeks.

Lawmakers Who Upheld NSA Phone Spying Received Double the Defense Industry Cash

Lawmakers Who Upheld NSA Phone Spying Received Double the Defense Industry Cash 26 Jul 2013 The numbers tell the story --in votes and dollars. On Wednesday, the house voted 217 to 205 not to rein in the NSA's phone-spying dragnet. It turns out that those 217 "no" voters received twice as much campaign financing from the defense and intelligence industry as the 205 "yes" voters. That's the upshot of a new analysis by MapLight, a Berkeley-based non-profit that performed the inquiry at WIRED's request. The investigation shows that defense cash was a better predictor of a member's vote on the Amash amendment than party affiliation. House members who voted to continue the massive phone-call-metadata spy program, on average, raked in 122 percent more money from defense contractors than those who voted Wednesday to dismantle it.

Hacker dies days before he was to reveal how to remotely kill pacemaker patients 26 Jul 2013 Security researcher Barnaby Jack has passed away in San Francisco, only days before a scheduled appearance at a Las Vegas hacker conference where he intended to show how an ordinary pacemaker could be compromised in order to kill a man. Jack, who previously presented hacks involving ATMs and insulin pumps at the annual Black Hat conference in Vegas, was confirmed dead Friday morning by the San Francisco Medical Examiner's office, Reuters reported. He passed away Thursday this week, but the office declined to offer any more details at this time.

The 217 Representatives Who Voted to Keep NSA Spying On All Your Data

The 217 Representatives Who Voted to Keep NSA Spying On All Your Data 24 Jul 2013 The Amash Amendment was voted down very narrowly (217 - 205). The full roll call has been released, and you'll note that this is not a partisan issue. Rep. Mike Rogers (one of the strongest defenders of the program) called the vote "bipartisan" against Amash, but it was equally as bipartisan against the NSA. 94 Republicans and 111 Democrats voted to stop the NSA collecting every phone record on every phone call. 134 Republicans and 83 Democrats voted to let the NSA keep spying on you.

Obama Promises, Including Whistleblower Protections, Disappear From Website

Obama Promises, Including Whistleblower Protections, Disappear From Website 26 Jul 2013 Amid the Obama administration's crackdown against whistleblowers, Change.gov, the 2008 website of the Obama transition team laying out the candidate's promises, has disappeared from the internet. The Sunlight Foundation notes that it last could be viewed on June 8, which was two days after the first revelations from Edward Snowden (who had then not yet revealed himself) about the NSA's phone surveillance program. One of the promises Obama made on the website was on "whistleblower protections." The White House did not respond to multiple requests for comment on why the page was deleted.

NY law bans shark fin sales starting next summer

NY law bans shark fin sales starting next summer 26 Jul 2013 New York is banning trade in shark fins starting next summer in an effort to protect the [endangered] marine predators. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who signed the law Friday, said an estimated 73 million sharks are killed worldwide to meet the 'market demand.' So-called "finning" of sharks -- catching them, cutting off their fins and returning them to the water to die -- is already illegal in U.S. and New York coastal waters.

Defense Attorney: Bradley Manning a Whistleblower

Defense Attorney: Bradley Manning a Whistleblower 26 Jul 2013 U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning is a whistleblower who wanted to inform the American public about the troubling things he saw in the war zone, and the soldier is willing to pay the price for giving secrets to WikiLeaks, his defense attorney said Friday. During closing arguments, attorney David Coombs disputed what prosecutors said a day earlier, that Manning was a traitor whose only mission as an intelligence analyst was to give classified information to the anti-secrecy website and bask in the attention. "He's not seeking attention. He saying he's willing to accept the price" for what he has done, Coombs said.

U.S. assures Russia Snowden won't be tortured or executed

U.S. assures Russia Snowden won't be tortured or executed 26 Jul 2013 Former U.S. security contractor Edward Snowden would not face the death penalty or be tortured and would have all the protections of the U.S. civilian court system if he were sent home, the chief U.S. prosecutor wrote in a letter to his Russian counterpart this week. In the letter dated Tuesday July 23 and released on Friday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder wrote that he sought to dispel claims about what would happen to Snowden if Russia handed him over to face charges of illegally disclosing government secrets about surveillance programs. Snowden has been stuck at a Moscow airport for more than a month while he searches for a country that will grant him asylum and avoid the criminal charges.

Senate pushes sanctions on nations aiding Snowden

Senate pushes sanctions on nations aiding Snowden 25 Jul 2013 U.S. sanctions against any country offering asylum to Edward Snowden advanced in Congress Thursday as the 30-year-old National Security Agency leaker remained in a Moscow airport while Russia weighed a request for him to stay permanently. The measure introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-Nutjob-S.C., demands the State Department coordinate with lawmakers on setting penalties against nations that seek to help Snowden avoid extradition to the United States, where authorities want him prosecuted for revealing details of the government's massive surveillance system. The Senate Appropriations Committee approved the proposal unanimously by voice vote as an amendment to next year's $50.6 billion diplomacy and international aid bill.

Lawyer gives Snowden 'Crime and Punishment' as present

Lawyer gives Snowden 'Crime and Punishment' as present 25 Jul 2013 The Russian lawyer helping Edward Snowden said Wednesday he would give the US fugitive a copy of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's novel "Crime and Punishment" as he prepares to leave the Moscow airport where he has been holed up for a month. "I bought him (Snowden) Dostoyevsky's 'Crime and Punishment'," said Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena, who had been helping the ex-NSA intelligence leaker with an asylum application and Wednesday passed him a document allowing him to move freely in Russia. "I think that Raskolnikov, who killed the old money-lender... I think he should read about that," Kucherena told Russian television ahead of the meeting with Snowden.

Cost of Arctic Methane Release Could Be 'Size of Global Economy', Experts Warn

Cost of Arctic Methane Release Could Be 'Size of Global Economy', Experts Warn 24 Jul 2013 Researchers have warned of an "economic time-bomb" in the Arctic, following a ground-breaking analysis of the likely cost of methane emissions in the region. Economic modelling shows that the methane emissions caused by shrinking sea ice from just one area of the Arctic could come with a global price tag of 60 trillion dollars -- the size of the world economy in 2012. Writing in a Comment piece in the journal, Nature, academics argue that a significant release of methane from thawing permafrost in the Arctic could have dire implications for the world's economy.

Taxpayer money wasted on $50 million justice project in Afghanistan, report finds

Taxpayer money wasted on $50 million justice project in Afghanistan, report finds 25 Jul 2013 A contract award made to an organization to promote the rule of law [LOL!] in Afghanistan does not appear to contain basic provisions that would allow the State Department to ensure proper oversight of a project expected to cost U.S. taxpayers $50 million, federal inspectors said Thursday. In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction said there were "serious deficiencies" in the government's award to the International Development Law Organization, which is based in Rome, for the Afghanistan Justice Training Transition Program. [The Obusha/GOP sequester slashes funding for public defenders -- and yet, there's $50 million to 'promote the rule of law' in Afghanistan -- while the CIA runs the world's biggest heroin operation out of same?

Ginger Seal Shunned By Peers

Ginger Seal Shunned By Peers 24 Jul 2013 This ginger seal is an outcast from its colony. They don't want him. Born with rare brownish-red fur and wonky blue eyes, he was rescued from a beach on an island off Russia, in the Caspian Sea, after it was abandoned by its mother. The pup's colour is the result of an accumulation of iron in its fur. Oh and he's almost completely blind. Photographer Anatoly Strakhov found the baby on Tyuleniy Island, away from the other seals on the beach. "He was hiding and waiting for his mother to come and feed him," Mr Strakhov said. Mr Strakhov caught the seal and took it to a dolphinarium where it is being cared for.

Halliburton pleads guilty to destroying Gulf spill evidence

Halliburton pleads guilty to destroying Gulf spill evidence 25 Jul 2013 Halliburton Co has agreed to plead guilty to destroying evidence related to the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the U.S. Department of Justice said on Thursday. The government said Halliburton's guilty plea is the third by a company over the spill and requires the world's second-largest oilfield services company to pay a maximum $200,000 statutory fine. Halliburton also agreed to three years of probation and to continue cooperating with the criminal probe into the April 20, 2010, explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.

Pentagon to deploy huge blimps over Washington, DC for 360-degree surveillance

Pentagon to deploy huge blimps over Washington, DC for 360-degree surveillance 25 Jul 2013 A pair of high-tech Army blimps is coming to the greater Washington, DC area, and soon they will be able to provide the military with surveillance powers that spans hundreds of millions of acres from North Carolina to Niagara Falls, Canada. The airships are part of Raytheon's Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System, or JLENS, and when all is said and done they'll offer the United States military what the defense contractor calls "an affordable elevated, persistent over-the-horizon sensor system" that relies on "a powerful integrated radar system to detect, track and target a variety of threats." Raytheon has just wrapped up a six-week testing period in the state of Utah and is now sending its JLENS fleet to the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland.

Homeland Security's Future Home: A Former Mental Hospital

Homeland Security's Future Home: A Former Mental Hospital --Whoever runs DHS will occupy the former office of the St. Elizabeths asylum superintendent. They were surrounded by the inmates. 25 Jul 2013 Chris Mills frequently gives tours of St. Elizabeths Hospital, a former mental institution where the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is building a $4.5 billion headquarters. It's the largest construction project in the District of Columbia since the Pentagon was completed in 1943. So there's a lot of ground to cover. St. Elizabeths is located in Anacostia, one of D.C.'s toughest neighborhoods. But they have little to fear inside the high-security fences.
