Obama Says Romney Words Aren't 'True' in Second Debate

October 17, 2012 by legitgov

Obama Says Romney Words Aren't 'True' in Second Debate 17 Oct 2012 President Barack Obama repeatedly challenged the truth of challenger Mitt Romney's statements as the two battled over the auto industry bailout, energy policy and social issues in their second debate. "What Governor Romney said just isn't true," Obama said tonight after the Republican presidential nominee said he opposed bailing out carmakers because he wanted the industry to go through the same type of bankruptcy experienced by other major companies. Obama said Romney's plan was to take General Motors Co. and Chrysler Group LLC "into bankruptcy without providing them with any way to stay open, and we would have lost 1 million jobs."

Revealed: Canberra shared intel on Assange with Washington 17 Oct 2012 WikiLeaks and Julian Assange have been the subject of intelligence exchanges between Australia and the United States for more than two years, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has revealed. The WikiLeaks publisher was also the subject of Australian intelligence reporting from Washington shortly before he sought political asylum in Ecuador's London embassy.

Energized Obama takes aggressive approach in second debate 16 Oct 2012 A newly energetic and aggressive President Obama went directly after his Republican challenger from the first moment of their second debate to the last, attacking Mitt Romney’s business record, his positions on issues and his truthfulness during a heated 90-minute encounter. "Gov. Romney says he's got a five-point plan. Gov. Romney doesn't have a five-point plan; he has a one-point plan: Make sure that folks at the top play by a different set of rules," Obama said during his answer to the debate's first question. In his final words, he reprised Romney's videotaped comments, made during a fundraising lunch in May, about 47% of Americans not paying federal income taxes and wanting to be dependent on the government.

State Department official: Negotiations to keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan beyond 2014 starting soon

October 17, 2012 by legitgov

Under cover of presidential debate: State Department official: Negotiations to keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan beyond 2014 starting soon 16 Oct 2012 Despite statements by Vice President Joe Biden, the State Department is about to begin formal negotiations over the extension of U.S. troops past 2014, a top State Department official said Tuesday. Last week, U.S. and Afghan negotiators met in Kabul to talk about the Bilateral Security Agreement that will govern the extension of U.S. troops past 2014, when President Barack Obama said the combat mission in Afghanistan will end and the U.S. will complete the transition of the entire country to Afghan government control. Some U.S. military officials have said the plan is to keep 25,000 American troops in Afghanistan past 2014, but Grossman insisted that there is no number yet and the 25,000 figure quoted in reports is speculative.

Feds raid Massachusetts lab tied to meningitis outbreak 16 Oct 2012 Federal agents on Tuesday raided the Massachusetts pharmacy linked to a widespread meningitis outbreak that has killed 16 people and sickened more than 200 others, federal prosecutors said. Agents from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration searched the New England Compounding Center, or NECC, in the Boston suburb of Framingham, with officers from the local police department providing support, Framingham police said. The raid took place as calls came for an even wider probe into whether the once obscure pharmacy may have broken federal laws dealing with controlled substances, and as additional meningitis cases were announced.

October 17, 2012 by legitgov

New report questions science behind flu vaccine efficacy and use policy 15 Oct 2012 Flu vaccine is not as effective as public health messaging traditionally has claimed, says a new report that suggests overselling of flu shots is getting in the way of developing more effective and longer lasting vaccines. Existing flu shots offer moderate protection some years and less in others and in general are "sub-optimal," according to the report, from public health experts at the Center for Infectious Diseases Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.

Gary McKinnon saved from extradition to US on hacking charges 16 Oct 2012 Gary McKinnon, the computer hacker who has been facing extradition to the US for the past decade, has been given a dramatic reprieve by the Home Secretary.

She also announced plans to change extradition rules to allow courts to block extradition attempts if it is in the interests of justice.

Drones, forces set for possible Libya strike - AP

October 16, 2012 by legitgov

Drones, forces set for possible Libya strike - AP 15 Oct 2012 Armed drones are flying over northern Africa and U.S. special forces are on call, ready to attack if the Obama administration can identify who was behind the deadly Sept. 11 assault on the American Consulate in Libya, officials tell the Associated Press. AP writes that the White House "is weighing whether the short-term payoff of exacting retribution on al-Qaeda is worth the risk that such strikes could elevate the group's profile in the region, alienate governments the U.S. needs to fight it in the future and do little to slow the growing terror threat in North Africa." AP bases its report on three current officials, a former Obama administration official and an outside analyst who said administration officials "have approached him asking for help in connecting the dots to Mali," where al-Qaeda[al-CIAduh]-linked rebels seized the northern half of the country in spring.

Global warming is 'causing more hurricanes'

Global warming is 'causing more hurricanes' --Scientists use tidal data to link frequency and intensity of storms to rises in temperature 16 Oct 2012 Scientists have found support for the controversial idea that global warming is causing more frequent and destructive hurricanes, a subject that has been hotly debated during the past decade. Data gathered from tide gauges, which monitor the rapid changes to sea levels caused by storm surges, show a significant link between both the frequency and intensity of tropical storms and increases in annual temperatures since the tidal records began in 1923. The study found that during the 90-year period, when the average global temperature has increased by 0.7C, extreme hurricanes similar to Katrina were nearly twice as likely in warmer years as colder years.

Computer hacker Gary McKinnon to find out extradition fate

October 16, 2012 by legitgov

Computer hacker Gary McKinnon to find out extradition fate 16 Oct 2012 Computer hacker Gary McKinnon will find out today whether Home Secretary Theresa May will end his 10-year battle against extradition to the United States. The ups and downs of his fight have been so cruel they amount to "waterboarding of the mind", his mother Janis Sharp said. But she is hopeful that Mrs May will end her son's suffering by blocking his extradition to the US, where he is accused of "the biggest military computer hack of all time". McKinnon, who suffers from Asperger's syndrome - a high-functioning form of autism - admits hacking into US military computers but claims he was looking for evidence of UFOs.

Gary McKinnon extradition: Ministerial aide will quit, David Cameron warned 15 Oct 2012 David Cameron has been warned that a ministerial aide will resign today if the Government finally agrees to extradite a computer hacker to America following a decade-long legal campaign. Friends of David Burrowes, Gary McKinnon's local MP and an aide to Owen Paterson, the Environment Secretary, said he would be forced to quit if Mr McKinnon was sent for trial in the US. Theresa May, the Home Secretary, will announce whether Mr McKinnon has lost his fight against extradition in a case which has become a cause célèbre for civil liberty campaigners.

Reporters barred from covering Paul Ryan exchange with homeless Ohioans 13 Oct 2012 (Youngstown, OH) Paul Ryan visited a soup kitchen here Saturday on his way to the airport, but by the time the GOP vice presidential nominee and his family had arrived shortly before noon, the grits, sausage and doughnuts had been served, the hall was empty of patrons and the volunteers appeared to have already cleaned up. When Ryan did talk to some men who appeared to be homeless, as he did when he left the venue, reporters were not allowed to listen in on the exchange.

October 16, 2012 by legitgov

Romney's Unraveling Claim That Six Studies Validate His Tax Plan 15 Oct 2012 In response to the persistent and substantial questions about the math of his tax plan not adding up, Mitt Romney and his campaign frequently argue that six independent studies back him up by ratifying the arithmetic of the centerpiece of his domestic agenda. But the talking point about the talking point is unraveling. Of the six studies, two are blog posts by the conservative American Enterprise Institute; one is a report by the Republican-friendly Heritage Foundation; one is a paper by Princeton professor and former George W. Bush adviser Harvey Rosen; the fifth and sixth are a Wall Street Journal op-ed and blog post by Harvard economist Martin Feldstein, an adviser to the Romney campaign.

Is Retirement Option for General in Sodomy Case? 08 Oct 2012 Under military law, Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair may be able to ask the secretary of the Army for permission to retire rather than face possible court-martial for forcible sodomy.

Koch Brothers to Workers: Vote for Romney or 'Suffer the Consequences' 15 Oct 2012 As a contentious election season enters its final weeks, a flurry of communication from corporate leaders to rank-and-file workers strongly implies that voting for President Barack Obama could imperil their jobs and their financial stability. Employees of a paper company owned by the outspoken billionaire Koch[-sucker] brothers terrorists received a mailing warning that they could "suffer the consequences, including higher gasoline prices, runaway inflation, and other ills" if they voted for candidates not supported by Koch-owned companies or its political fund-raising arm. The company also provided workers with a list of those candidates it supports. At the top: Mitt Romney, according to media outlet In These Times, which broke the story.

Japan utility agrees nuclear crisis was avoidable

October 15, 2012 by legitgov

USociopaths, TEPCO terrorists want to restart another deadly nuclear power plant, ergo: Japan utility agrees nuclear crisis was avoidable 12 Oct 2012 The utility behind Japan's acknowledged for the first time Friday that it could have avoided the crisis. Tokyo Electric Power Co. said in a statement that it had known safety improvements were needed before last year's events which triggered three meltdowns, but it had feared the political, economic and legal consequences of implementing them. The statement was released after TEPCO held its first internal reform committee meeting, led by former U.S. nuclear regulatory chief Dale Klein. His five-member committee oversees the task force's reform plans. The reform plans aim to use the lessons learned at TEPCO's Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant in northern Japan. The cash-strapped utility wants to restart that plant, but TEPCO officials denied the reform plans are aimed at improving public image to gain support for the plant's resumption.

Deepwater Horizon pipe 'responsible for new oil slick in Gulf of Mexico' --BP and Transocean to submit clean-up operation, after scientists link three-mile oil slick to Deepwater Horizon disaster 12 Oct 2012 Government scientists have definitively linked a new oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico to the BP oil spill disaster of 2010. A senior government scientist said the most likely source of the new oil is the mile-long length of pipe from the Deepwater Horizon rig, now lying in a crumpled loop on the ocean floor. At worst, he said, the pipe was thought to contain some 1,800 barrels of oil - a minuscule amount compared with the 4.9m barrels that gushed into the ocean from BP's well during the[ir] 2010 oil disaster.

Report: CIA Arranged Bride for Terrorist in Plot to Kill Him

October 15, 2012 by legitgov

Report: CIA Arranged Bride for Terrorist in Plot to Kill Him 15 Oct 2012 The CIA paid an 'al Qaeda' spy $250,000 to help find a bride for American-born [alleged] terrorist Anwar al Awlaki in a plot to locate and kill him, according to a report in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. In the case of the terrorist bride, the purported CIA double agent, Morten Storm, a Danish convert to Islam, provided the newspaper with "proposal" videos and e-mail texts he says al Awlaki exchanged with the woman, a 32-year old Croatian named Aminah who said she was an admirer of al Awlaki. The report says the plot failed when the woman reached Yemen but was told by al Awlaki's aides to abandon her suitcase which had been bugged with tracking devices by the CIA without her knowledge. Storm told the newspaper, "both of them would be killed in an American drone strike" if the CIA plan had succeeded.

Millions of unexploded bombs lie in waters off US coast, researchers say

October 14, 2012 by legitgov

Millions of unexploded bombs lie in waters off US coast, researchers say 08 Oct 2012 Lurking (and leaking) beneath the world's oceans are an estimated 200 million pounds of unexploded and potentially dangerous explosives -- from bombs to missiles to mustard gas. Texas A&M oceanographers William Bryant and Niall Slowey documented two such dumpsites in the Gulf of Mexico recently. They conservatively guess that at least 31 million pounds of bombs can be found not just in the Gulf, but also off the coasts of at least 16 states, from New Jersey to Hawaii. Thousands of gallon containers of mustard gas lie strewn off the New Jersey coast, for example. And there is a total of seven dumpsites on the Gulf seafloor, each approximately 81 square miles, one at the mouth of the Mississippi River Delta.
