The water has flooded the reactor buildings and adjacent facilities, preventing workers from conducting necessary repairs, and has periodically contaminated the ocean through spillages.

June 17, 2011 by legitgov

Lulzsec takes down the US CIA 16 Jun 2011 Lulzsec took down the CIA web site yesterday, 'for the lulz'. The group, which hacks or takes down up to three or more online presences a day, announced the hack last night on its twitter feed, saying "Tango down - cia.gov - for the lulz". The apparent denial of service attack came on the same day that the hackers opened up a phone request line for targets... This attack seems to have been a brief one and apparently took the US spooks' web site down for only about an hour.

This attack was similar in that hackers broke into the public site and downloaded information, said Martina Bradford, the deputy Senate sergeant at arms.

'It doesn't pass the straight face test': Republican Speaker pours scorn on Obama claim of authority for Libya mission 16 Jun 2011 The Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives has slammed President Barack Obama's claim he can carry on military action in Libya without a vote from Congress. The administration had claimed American forces were not facing the 'hostilities' that would force the President to seek Congressional approval for the campaign. 'Yet we've got drone attacks under way. We're spending $10 million a day, part of an effort to drop bombs on [Colonel] Gaddafi's compound,' said John Boehner (R-OH), Speaker of the House of Representatives. 'It doesn't pass the straight face test in my view that we're not in the midst of hostilities.'

Pakistan 'blocking supplies to US base'

June 16, 2011 by legitgov

Pakistan 'blocking supplies to US base' 16 Jun 2011 Pakistan is blocking food and water from reaching a remote base used by the US for its secret drones programme, severely hampering counter terrorism strategy, according to a senior American official. Both sides are now briefing against the other as hostility between the two countries grows more intense -- and more open -- day by day. A senior U.S. official told The New York Times that supplies had been choked off to the airbase and that they were gradually "strangling the alliance" by making things difficult for the Americans in Pakistan. [Great! Less eight-year-olds will have bombs drop on their heads by USociopaths' killer drones.]

June 15, 2011 by legitgov

LulzSec Hacks CIA.gov Website 15 Jun 2011 A report from Reuters is indicating that hacker group Lulz Security (LulzSec) broke into a public portion of the Senate website over a weekend and claimed responsibility for that attack in a Tweet Monday. For the second time in a week, the group has broken into a public senate site and downloaded information. CIA.gov, the official site of the Central Intelligence Agency, was also unresponsive to browsing and we have reason to believe it has faced the same fate as the other prominent sites. LulzSec has seemed to claim responsibility for the CIA site going down with this Tweet, posted Wednesday evening PST, stating "Tango down - CIA.gov – for the lulz."

They are the first whales thought to have been affected by radiation leaked from the damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.

Radiation "hotspots" hinder Japan response to nuclear crisis

June 15, 2011 by legitgov

Radiation "hotspots" hinder Japan response to nuclear crisis 15 Jun 2011 Hisao Nakamura still can't accept that his crisply cut field of deep green tea bushes south of Tokyo has been turned into a radioactive hazard by a crisis far beyond the horizon. "I was more than shocked," said Nakamura, 74, who, like other tea farmers in Kanagawa has been forced to throw away an early harvest because of radiation being released by the Fukushima Daiichi plant 300 kilometers (180 miles) away. More than three months after the Fukushima nuclear plant was hit by a quake and tsunami that triggered the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl, Japanese officials are still struggling to understand where and how radiation released in the accident created far-flung "hotspots" of contamination.

Wisconsin Supreme Court reinstates collective bargaining law

June 15, 2011 by legitgov

Wisconsin Supreme Court reinstates collective bargaining law 14 Jun 2011 Acting with unusual speed, the state Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered the reinstatement of Gov. Scott Walker's controversial plan to end most collective bargaining for tens of thousands of public workers. The court found that a committee of lawmakers was not subject to the state's open meetings law, and so did not violate that law when it hastily approved the collective bargaining measure in March and made it possible for the Senate to take it up. In doing so, the Supreme Court overruled a Dane County judge who had halted the legislation, ending one challenge to the law even as new challenges are likely to emerge.

Pakistan Arrests C.I.A. Informants in Bin Laden Raid

Pakistan Arrests C.I.A. Informants in Bin Laden Raid 15 Jun 2011 Pakistan's top military spy agency has arrested some of the Pakistani informants who fed information to the Central Intelligence Agency in the months leading up to the raid that led to the death of 'Osama bin Laden,' according to U.S. officials. Pakistan's detention of five C.I.A. informants, including a Pakistani Army major who officials said copied the license plates of cars visiting Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in the weeks before the raid, is the latest evidence of the fractured relationship between the United States and Pakistan.
