FBI Reveals Another Round of Suspicious Letters to Obama, CIA

FBI Reveals Another Round of Suspicious Letters to Obama, CIA 31 May 2013 As federal authorities question a person of interest in the mailing of possibly poison-laced letters to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and President Obama, the FBI revealed late Thursday that they arrested a Washington man for allegedly sending his own group of suspicious letters to five targets including the President, an Air Force base and to the CIA. According to an FBI statement, the bureau arrested Matthew Buquet, 38, of Spokane last week after authorities intercepted a letter to a Spokane federal judge that later tested positive for the ricin toxin. He was charged with a single count for allegedly mailing threatening communications, but the FBI said four other "similar" letters were sent around the same time to a Spokane post office, the White House, a Washington Air Force base and to the CIA.

FBI probes two cases of ricin letters to Obama, others

FBI probes two cases of ricin letters to Obama, others 31 May 2013 U.S. authorities are investigating a Texas man over threatening letters containing a potentially deadly poison mailed to U.S. President Barack Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a law enforcement official said on Friday. The probe comes as FBI officials continue investigating a separate batch of ricin-laced letters sent earlier this month from Washington state to the president and four other targets, including the CIA and a military facility. At this point, investigators do not think the two cases are connected, the source said.

Soil around Fukushima to be frozen to stop groundwater leaking in

Soil around Fukushima to be frozen to stop groundwater leaking in --250,000 tonnes of radioactive water is stored at Fukushima 31 May 2013 The Japanese government has ordered the operator of the Fukushima nuclear plant to freeze the soil around its crippled reactor buildings to stop groundwater seeping in and becoming contaminated. Every day another 400 tonnes of groundwater forces its way into the plant, becomes contaminated with radioactivity and needs to be stored onsite. Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) already has a quarter of a million tonnes of radioactive water stored in tanks at Fukushima. Fearing the nuclear plant is running out of space to store contaminated water, the Japanese government has ordered TEPCO to take the drastic step.

Civil rights group wants review of FBI shooting of Chechen man in Florida

Civil rights group wants review of FBI shooting of Chechen man in Florida 29 May 2013 A Muslim civil liberties group said on Wednesday it wants a review of the death of a Chechen immigrant linked to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects who was shot and killed by an FBI agent in Florida. The FBI has said that Ibragim Todashev, 27, was being questioned when he suddenly attacked an agent on May 22 at his Orlando condominium and was shot and killed based on the "imminent threat posed by the individual." Hassan Shibly, executive director of the Tampa, Florida-based branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said his group would by the end of this week file a request for the civil rights division of the U.S. Department of Justice to review Todashev's death.

Germany fears revolution if Europe scraps welfare model

Germany fears revolution if Europe scraps welfare model 28 May 2013 German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble warned on Tuesday that failure to win the battle against youth unemployment could tear Europe apart, and dropping the continent's welfare model in favor of tougher U.S. standards would spark a revolution. Germany, along with France, Spain and Italy, backed urgent action to rescue a generation of young Europeans who fear they will not find jobs, with youth unemployment in the EU standing at nearly one in four, more than twice the adult rate. If U.S. welfare standards were introduced in Europe, "we would have revolution, not tomorrow, but on the very same day," Schaeuble told a conference in Paris. [Right, and that's exactly what should have happened in the US.]

NYC police: Notes to Obama, mayor had gun threats

NYC police: Notes to Obama, mayor had gun threats 30 May 2013 A suspicious letter mailed to the White House was similar to two threatening, poison-laced letters on the gun law debate sent to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of the nation's most potent gun-control advocates, officials said Thursday. Yet another letter became known publicly on Thursday, one tainted with the poison ricin and mailed to President Barack Obama from Spokane, Wash., the FBI said. Authorities have arrested a man in Spokane in connection with that letter, which was intercepted May 22.

FBI: Ricin letter to Obama also sent from Wash.

FBI: Ricin letter to Obama also sent from Wash. 30 May 2013 The FBI says a suspicious letter containing the deadly poison ricin was mailed to President Barack Obama from Spokane, Wash., on the same day similar ricin-tainted letters were mailed to a federal judge and a post office. A man arrested last week in Spokane has been charged with sending the letter to the judge after it was intercepted May 14. The Seattle FBI office said Thursday that the Obama letter was intercepted May 22. The FBI said a similar letter was sent to the nearby Fairchild Air Force Base.

Conservative website tweets, deletes 'HNIC' reference

Conservative website tweets, deletes 'HNIC' reference 30 May 2013 The conservative website The Daily Caller suffered a social media fail on Thursday, when the site’s Twitter account featured a shorthand for the n-word. The original tweet, posted at just before 5 p.m. Thursday, was directed at Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus. The tweet jokingly asked "Hey @Reince, why didn’t you tell us you were moonlighting as a rapper? Turns out our GOP Chair is HNIC..." HNIC is a slang term meaning "Head N-word in Charge."

Would-be Chicago backpack bomber gets 23 years

Would-be Chicago backpack bomber gets 23 years 30 May 2013 A young Lebanese immigrant was sentenced Thursday to 23 years in prison for placing a backpack he believed contained a powerful bomb along a bustling city street near the Chicago Cubs' baseball stadium. Sami Samir Hassoun's sentencing in federal court in Chicago came little more than a month after bombs concealed in [Craft International] backpacks exploded at the Boston Marathon, killing three people and wounding hundreds more. In imposing the sentence, the judge invoked the specter of the Boston Marathon, saying had Hassoun's bomb been real, it would have made Boston look like a minor incident by comparison.

President Barack Obama targeted in 3rd threatening letter 30 May 2013 President Barack Obama was the targeted recipient of a letter suspected of containing ricin, following similar letters sent to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg...

The Secret Service confirmed the apparent link among the letters. The two letters addressed to the mayor had a Shreveport, La. postmark, according to a statement on the postal union's website.

Officials: Man who knew Boston bombing suspect was unarmed when shot

Officials: Man who knew Boston bombing suspect was unarmed when shot 29 May 2013 A Chechen man who was fatally shot by an FBI agent last week during an interview about one of the Boston bombing suspects was unarmed, law enforcement officials said Wednesday. An air of mystery has surrounded the FBI shooting of Ibragim Todashev, 27, since it occurred in Todashev's apartment early on the morning of May 22. The FBI said in a news release that day that Todashev, a former Boston resident who knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed during an interview with several law enforcement officers. The FBI has provided few other details, saying that the matter is being investigated by an FBI review team that may not finish its probe for several months.

Sandy Hook Report Put Off

Sandy Hook Report Put Off --Release possible in September --Unit involved in the investigation, said part of delay is redacting FBI reports 29 May 2013 State police said Wednesday that the final investigative report on the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown may not be released until the end of September. Danbury State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky, who's in charge of the investigation, said in January that the report wouldn't be released until June at the earliest, so the new forecast continues a pattern in which information on the case has been delayed in its release or withheld outright. State police have been criticized for releasing little information to the public about the investigation while at the same time discussing the case at conferences across the country.

Secret Service: Ricin letter to White House intercepted

Secret Service: Ricin letter to White House intercepted 30 May 2013 The Secret Service says a letter similar to ones sent to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been intercepted by a White House mail screening facility.

Head of company overseeing leaking nuclear tanks at Hanford to step down

Head of company overseeing leaking nuclear tanks at Hanford to step down 29 May 2013 The head of the contracting company responsible for containment tanks found to be leaking radioactive liquid at the Hanford, Wash., Nuclear Reservation announced his retirement Wednesday. The head of the contractor overseeing cleanup operations at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina will replace Mike Johnson, president and project manager of Washington River Protection Solutions, or WRPS, Johnson said in an email message to employees obtained by NBC station KING of Seattle. WRPS has been the subject of extensive federal scrutiny since it was learned in February that at least six of 177 underground tanks housing highly radioactive nuclear waste at the site were leaking.

Father of Chechen killed in Florida says FBI murdered him

Father of Chechen killed in Florida says FBI murdered him --'They murdered him to keep him from talking.' 30 May 2013 After FBI agents questioned Ibragim Todashev for hours on end about one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, his father alleged Thursday, they murdered him to keep him from talking. Abdulbaki Todashev, who applied Thursday for a U.S. visa so that he can pick up his son's body in Orlando, where he died, said that he has heard nothing from U.S. officials about the May 22 shooting. Despite earlier accounts of the incident, two law enforcement officials told The Washington Post on Wednesday that Todashev was not armed. He was shot seven times.

Judge rejects legal challenges by accused Colorado theater gunman

Judge rejects legal challenges by accused Colorado theater gunman 29 May 2013 A Colorado judge rejected challenges on Wednesday to the state's insanity defense statute and death penalty law by accused movie theater spree gunman James Holmes, resolving a key legal hurdle in the sensational case. Lawyers for Holmes, accused of killing 12 moviegoers and wounding dozens more in a rampage last July, had argued that the state's insanity law was unconstitutional because it forces their client to cooperate with court-appointed psychiatrists. They also contended that compelling the 25-year-old former neuroscience graduate student to reveal information to mental health experts that could be used against him at trial violates his constitutional right against self-incrimination. But Arapahoe County District Judge Carlos Samour disagreed.

Friend of Boston bombing suspect unarmed when killed by FBI

Friend of Boston bombing suspect unarmed when killed by FBI 30 May 2013 Ibragim Todashev, who was killed during an FBI interview last week, was unarmed when he was fatally shot, fueling speculation that his association with Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was enough, in the eyes of police, to be fatal. The death of Ibragim Todashev has been shrouded in mystery since he was mortally wounded during an interview with FBI agents on May 22. Before Wednesday's admission that the 27-year-old was unarmed at the time of his death, investigators offered conflicting accounts of what happened in Todashev's final minutes.

Soldier Is Expected to Plead Guilty in Afghan Massacre

Soldier Is Expected to Plead Guilty in Afghan Massacre 29 May 2013 Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, the soldier charged with killing 16 Afghan civilians in what is considered the deadliest war crime by a single American soldier in the post-9/11 [itself a US war crime] era, will plead guilty to avoid the death penalty, his lawyer said Wednesday. In a brief interview as he rushed into a meeting with Sergeant Bales, John Henry Browne, the lawyer, said military prosecutors at Joint Base Lewis-McChord near Tacoma, Wash., had agreed to the plea, which could be made before a military judge next week. A spokesman for the base, Lt. Col. Gary Dangerfield, said he could not confirm whether a deal had been struck or whether the two sides were in negotiations over a plea. But he said a plea hearing had been tentatively scheduled for next Wednesday.

A., a private digital currency exchange service based in Costa Rica. U.S. authorities accused the currency exchange of facilitating $6 billion worth of money laundering, calling it a "bank of choice for the criminal underworld."

Attack on Red Cross in eastern Afghanistan kills one guard 29 May 2013 Insurgents attacked the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad on Wednesday, killing an Afghan guard in the second major assault on a humanitarian organization in less than a week. Seven staff members, believed to be the total number of foreign workers at the ICRC in Jalalabad, were rescued by Afghan police during the attack, which involved a suicide bomber and three gunmen, an Interior Ministry spokesman said. Police carried away the blood-soaked body of the guard who was shot dead at the beginning of the assault, which started when the suicide bomber detonated explosives at the ICRC gate at 5:30 p.m. (1300 GMT).

Russian Pacific Fleet enters the Mediterranean in challenge to West 28 May 2013 For the first time in a decade, a large combat fleet from Russia's Pacific Fleet based in Vladivostok in the Russian Far East is joining other Russian warships in the Mediterranean on a combat patrol. To deploy large warships thousands of miles away from East Asia to the Middle East demonstrates President Vladimir Putin's resolve to resume Russia's military and strategic glory of the past by challenging the collective military power of the West. [It's about time.]

The incident took place early Wednesday after the US drone fired two missiles at a house in Chashma village near Miranshah, a town in the North Waziristan district. The strike was the first such move since Pakistan's recent general elections won by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League.

Obama Asks Pentagon for Syria No-Fly Zone Plan

USociopaths trolling for new wars for BP, ExxonMobil and Israel: Obama Asks Pentagon for Syria No-Fly Zone Plan 28 May 2013 Along with no-fly zone plans, the White House is considering arming parts of the Syrian opposition and formally recognizing the Syrian opposition council, reports Josh Rogin. The White House has asked the Pentagon to draw up plans for a no-fly zone inside Syria that would be enforced by the U.S. and other countries such as France and Great Britain, two administration officials told The Daily Beast. The request was made shortly before Secretary of State John Kerry toured the Middle East last week to try and finalize plans for an early June conference between the Syrian regime government and 'rebel' leaders [aka cannibals, rapists and terrorists] in Geneva.

FBI used Photoshop in Boston bombings evidence: Investigative journalist

FBI used Photoshop in Boston bombings evidence: Investigative journalist 29 May 2013 An investigative reporter has revealed that the image released by the FBI as evidence on one of the suspects of the Boston Marathon bombings was doctored with a computer software such as Photoshop. The FBI image was put forth as evidence that 19-year old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who the police took into custody on April 19 after a day of intense searching that shut down major parts of Boston, arrived at the scene of the bombing with a backpack but left without it. Comparing pictures he took of the scene with the photo released by the FBI, reporter Ralph Lopez of The Digital Journal suggests the FBI photo shows clear evidence of being made with Photoshop.

NY Mayor Bloomberg Gets 'Ricin-Laced' Letters

The threatening letters were opened on Friday in New York at the city's mail facility, and on Sunday in Washington DC at the headquarters of a nonprofit Mr Bloomberg supports, Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Both were addressed to Mr Bloomberg and contained threats related to the gun control debate. Police say preliminary testing indicated the presence of ricin.

Chinese firm in $4.7bn takeover of US pork giant Smithfield Foods

Mega barf alert *and* gag me with a chainsaw: Chinese firm in $4.7bn takeover of US pork giant Smithfield Foods --There have been recent reports of contamination of the Chinese meat supply from a bird-flu outbreak. Shuanghui, also known as Shineway, is China's largest pork producer and is part owned by an investment firm run by Goldman Sachs. 29 May 2013 China's Shuanghui International has made a $4.7bn bid to takeover Smithfield Foods, the world's largest pork producer, in what would be the biggest takeover of a US company by a Chinese firm to date -- if it passes regulatory hurdles. The deal is likely to run into heavy opposition in Washington, where a series of Chinese takeovers have been blocked by politicians and regulators. A takeover would give Smithfield entry into China, one of the biggest and fastest growing markets for pork. Smithfield, too, has been challenged by safety and work practice issues. The first confirmed case of H1N1 swine flu during the 2009 flu pandemic was a five-year-old boy living near a Smithfield subsidiary in Mexico. More than 600 residents living near the plant in La Gloria, Veracruz, were infected with a mysterious respiratory illness.
