April 20, 2011 by legitgov

WikiLeaks Suspect Bradley Manning Headed to Kansas for Detention, 'Trial' --Pentagon Says Outcry Over Detention Conditions at Quantico Did Not Prompt Move 19 Apr 2011 The U.S. Army private accused of leaking thousands of classified government documents to WikiLeaks will be transferred from a Marine Corps detention center at Quantico, Va., to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, ahead of 'trial,' the Pentagon said today. Jeh Johnson, the Pentagon general counsel, told reporters the military decided to move Pfc. Bradley Manning, 23, to Leavenworth's state-of-the-art Joint Regional Correctional Facility... Johnson said the transfer was not prompted by outcry over conditions at the Quantico facility, which have drawn protests from several international human rights groups and representatives of German and U.K. governments and allegations that the military has violated Manning's basic human rights.

Top US court considers major climate change case 19 Apr 2011 Supreme Court justices appeared reluctant Tuesday to take a definitive stand in a key global warming case on the right of US states to regulate carbon emissions as a "public nuisance." In considering an appeals court ruling in favor of a lawsuit filed by environmentalists, eight states and New York City, allowing them to sue utility companies over their greenhouse gas emissions, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the courts may not be the best forum for the fight.

Britain's Security Blanket for Royal Wedding Terror Triple Threat

April 19, 2011 by legitgov

Britain's Security Blanket for Royal Wedding Terror Triple Threat --England Threat Level 'Severe' 19 Apr 2011 Vigilant British authorities have built multiple layers of heavy security around the parade route Prince William and Kate Middleton will take for their April 29 royal wedding. The so-called "ring of steel" will guard against potential terror threats to the royal couple from Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh], anarchists and IRA splinter groups, among others. From making full use of London's robust closed circuit television (CCTV) camera system, to dispatching hundreds of undercover police officers and even inspecting and sealing sewer drains, authorities are pulling out all stops to protect the prince, the future princess and the throngs of spectators expected to turn out for the wedding procession, officials told ABC News. Though there has been no specific threat against the wedding, bomb-sniffing dogs, hazardous material teams, riot police and roof-top snipers will be dispatched on the day of the ceremony, and foreign intelligence services will also be participating in the massive security effort, they said.

Taliban attack signals focus on infiltrating security forces 18 Apr 2011 A man dressed in an Afghan military uniform entered the Ministry of Defense in Kabul Monday and opened fire, killing at least two people and injuring seven. The incident marks the third time in four days that an attacker dressed in an Afghan police or military uniform has infiltrated a secure compound and carried out a lethal attack. The wave of killings has created speculation that insurgents may be shifting their focus away from direct engagements with NATO and Afghan forces and investing their resources in infiltrating Afghanistan's security forces so they can carry out complex suicide attacks.

Do US nuclear plants have defective parts? NRC finds reporting flaws 19 Apr 2011 A large fraction of the nation's nuclear power plant operators -- 28 percent -- did not tell federal regulators about failures of defective parts that could lead to major safety problems in other reactors across the country, according to a new report Friday by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's inspector general. As a result, industry watchdogs say, some power plant operators may unknowingly be operating nuclear reactors with defective parts.

Secret memos expose link between oil firms and invasion of Iraq

April 19, 2011 by legitgov

Secret memos expose link between oil firms and invasion of Iraq 19 Apr 2011 Plans to exploit Iraq's oil reserves were discussed by government ministers and the world's largest oil companies the year before Britain took a leading role in invading Iraq, government documents show. The papers, revealed here for the first time, raise new questions over Britain's involvement in the war, which had divided Tony Blair's cabinet and was voted through only after his claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The minutes of a series of meetings between ministers and senior oil executives are at odds with the public denials of self-interest from oil companies and Western governments at the time.

Tenn. sponsor moves ahead with anti-terrorism bill

April 19, 2011 by legitgov

Tenn. sponsor moves ahead with anti-terrorism bill 19 Apr 2011 The Senate sponsor of an amended Tennessee proposal that seeks to prevent support for terrorist acts said Tuesday he's moving forward with the legislation despite opponents who say it's unnecessary and still unfairly targets Muslims. The original proposal by Republican Sen. Bill Ketron of Murfreesboro sought to make it a felony to follow some versions of the Islamic code known as Shariah. It gave the state's attorney general authority to designate an entity a "Shariah organization" if he finds the group knowingly adheres to Shariah, which the legislation defined as "any rule, precept, instruction, or edict arising directly from the extant rulings of any of the authoritative schools of Islamic jurisprudence of Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi'i, Hanbali, Ja'afariya, or Salafi."

Michelle Obama's plane aborted landing after close call --This was the first case in which prominent officials were placed in potential danger. 19 Apr 2011 First lady Michelle Obama's plane was forced to abort a landing Monday after it got too close to a 200-ton military cargo jet on the runway, The Washington Post reports.

"Siemens should explain why and how it provided the enemies with the information about the codes of the SCADA software and prepared the ground for a cyber attack against us," Jalali told IRNA.

California Republican refuses to resign from post after sending picture depicting Obama as ape 18 Apr 2011 Orange County Republican party member Marilyn Davenport is refusing to resign from the party after having sent out a racist email depicting President Obama's head on the body of an ape, according to the Orange County Weekly. Davenport, a Tea Party member and elected official of the County Republican party, sent the email to fellow party members. Davenport later apologized to recipients of the email in the event that she had offended anyone with the image, and denied the implication that the depiction was racist. ..."In no way did I even consider the fact he's half black when I sent out the email," she added. "I received plenty of emails about [former president (sic)] George Bush that I didn't particularly like yet there was no 'cry' in the media about them." [Firstly, George W. Bush was *never* elected president, so the comparison ends there. Secondly: CLG attacked Bush as an 'Idiot Usurping Lying Weasel.' Nicholas Kristof slammed us for that invective in a New York Times editorial, but regardless: We attacked Bush for his *policies,* as we do with Obama. --LRP]
