Bloomberg: Interpretation of Constitution will 'have to change' after Boston bombing

Bloomberg: Interpretation of Constitution will 'have to change' after Boston bombing 22 Apr 2013 In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday the country’s interpretation of the Constitution will "have to change" to allow for greater security to stave off future attacks. "The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry," Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. "But we live in a complex world where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change." Mr. Bloomberg, who has come under fire for the N.Y.P.D.'s monitoring of Muslim communities and other aggressive tactics, said the rest of the country needs to learn from the attacks.

After U.S. Troops Leave, Armed Drones Will Patrol Afghanistan's Skies

After U.S. Troops Leave, Armed Drones Will Patrol Afghanistan's Skies 23 Apr 2013 One of the major elements of Afghanistan’s air war will remain after most U.S. troops have headed home, the U.S. military command confirmed today. Armed drones, operated by the U.S., will remain over Afghanistan after 2014. The drones will not be the only air support available to the Afghan army after 2014, when most U.S. forces are slated to leave Afghanistan. But only "some fixed wing" manned fighters and bombers will remain on the battlefield, Polumbo said. Navy jets flown off of nearby aircraft carriers and Air Force planes flown from Gulf airbases will supplement them when the Afghans' small supply of Mi-17 and Mi-35 attack helicopters, and their forthcoming Super Tucano planes, are overwhelmed. [WHY are US taxpayers FORCED to fund a drone program to protect the CIA's opium and gas routes?]

West Fertilizer stored 1,350 times amount of ammonium nitrate that would trigger oversight by DHS

The *real* US threat: Psycho Rick Perry and his merry band of deregulated corpora-terrorists: West Fertilizer stored 1,350 times amount of ammonium nitrate that would trigger oversight by DHS 20 Apr 2013 The fertilizer plant that exploded on Wednesday, obliterating part of a small Texas town and killing at least 14 people, had last year been storing 1,350 times the amount of ammonium nitrate that would normally trigger safety oversight by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Yet a person familiar with DHS operations said the company that owns the plant, West Fertilizer, did not tell the agency about the potentially explosive fertilizer as it is required to do, leaving one of the principal regulators of ammonium nitrate - which can also be used in bomb making - unaware of any danger there. A U.S. congressman and several safety experts called into question on Friday whether incomplete disclosure or [GOP-engendered] regulatory gridlock may have contributed to the disaster corpora-terrorist attack.

In Virginia's Fairfax County, Robbing Banks for the CIA

In Virginia's Fairfax County, Robbing Banks for the CIA --'Operation Downstrike' 18 Apr 2013 In a white-walled interrogation room in a small Virginia police station last June, two detectives were trying to get Herson Torres to crack. Surveillance video tied him to two attempted bank robberies in the area during the past week. The 21-year-old didn't have a criminal record and seemed nervous, but he wasn't talking... "If I tell you, you're not going to believe me," Torres said. He was crying as he told them an incredible story about being recruited by the Defense Intelligence Agency to participate in a secret operation testing the security of Washington-area banks. He said he’d been assigned to rob a half-dozen banks over four days.

From his hospital bed, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has acknowledged his role in planting the explosives near the marathon finish line on April 15, the officials said. Officials said the 'evidence' so far suggests they were" self-radicalized" through Internet sites and U.S. actions in the Muslim world.

TSA delays change allowing knives on planes

TSA delays change allowing knives on planes --Opponents of the policy change attributed its reversal to 'a huge backlash' from flight attendants, airline executives and lawmakers. 23 Apr 2013 The Transportation Security Administration has delayed a policy change that would have allowed passengers to carry small folding knives onto planes. In a letter Monday to employees, TSA chief John Pistole said he decided to maintain, at least temporarily, a post-9/11 ban on knives after meeting with an aviation security panel.

FBI: No ricin found in home of Mississippi suspect

FBI: No ricin found in home of Mississippi suspect 22 Apr 2013 Investigators haven't found any ricin in the house of a Mississippi man accused of mailing poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. senator and a local judge, according to testimony Monday from an FBI agent. Agent Brandon Grant said that a search of Paul Kevin Curtis's vehicle and house in Corinth, Miss., on Friday did not turn up ricin, ingredients for the poison, or devices used to make it. A search of Curtis's computers has found no evidence so far that he researched making ricin. Defense lawyers for Curtis say investigators' failure to find any ricin means the government should release their client.

Sacramento Mosque Heightens Security Following Boston Marathon Bombings

Sacramento Mosque Heightens Security Following Boston Marathon Bombings 21 Apr 2013 Although the suspects of the Boston Marathon bombings no longer seem to be a threat, some fear the local Muslim community could be a target. That anger, according to local Muslim leaders, is justified but shouldn't be shown toward Muslim Americans. While the center is on heightened alert, they haven't necessarily done anything outwardly to make security tighter, said Dr. Metwalli Amer, Salam Center co-founder.

Over half of Guantanamo Bay prisoners on hunger strike as number increases to 84 21 Apr 2013 Over half of all detainees at the US-run Guantanamo Bay military prison are now taking part in a hunger strike, with many being force-fed, a US military spokesman confirmed today. The number of prisoners on hunger strike has risen to 84, an increase of 32 since last Wednesday, with 16 now receiving "enteral feedings," a process involving being force-fed via tubes. Inmates at the facility, which houses 166 detainees, have been refusing food since 6 February, when they claim prison officials searched their Korans for contraband, an act they considered to be religious desecration. Some prisoners, including Shaker Aamer, the last British inmate being held there, have since said they are continuing the strike in protest against their incarceration at Guantanamo for 11 years without charge or trial.

A source close to the investigation said: "We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone. The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated and not the kind of thing people learn from Google... Agents think the sleeper cell has up to a dozen members and has been waiting several years for their day to come."

G.O.P. Lawmakers Push to Hold Boston Suspect as Enemy Combatant

G.O.P. Lawmakers Push to Hold Boston Suspect as Enemy Combatant 22 Apr 2013 Some Republican lawmakers want President Obama to declare the surviving Boston bombing suspect an enemy combatant in order to question him without a lawyer and other protections of the criminal justice system, intensifying a recurring debate over how to handle terrorism cases arising inside the United States. But while the suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a naturalized American citizen, is a Muslim, there is no known evidence suggesting that he is part of Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh]. The Obama administration has said it thinks terrorism suspects arrested inside the United States should be handled exclusively in the criminal justice system. It has indicated no intention to do otherwise in Mr. Tsarnaev's case, but the issue is taking on political currency, underscoring a major divide on national security legal policy.

Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I.

Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I. --'Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.' 29 Apr 2012 The United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years -- or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts. But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training.

The suspect was watched by armed guards in the intensive care unit of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where his brother was pronounced dead early on Friday.
