In total, the committee said it had found more than a million fake parts had made their way into warplanes such as the Boeing C-17 transport jet and the Lockheed Martin C-130J "Super Hercules". It also found fake components in Boeing's CH-46 Sea Knight helicopter and the Theatre High-Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) missile defence system.

Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Pakistan's army chief, issued the order in a letter to his troops that set out the rules of engagement against any "aggressor."

US targets WikiLeaks like no other organisation 03 Dec 2011 WikiLeaks is the target of an "unprecedented" US government criminal investigation, Australian diplomatic cables obtained by the Herald reveal.

The cables, released under freedom of information to the Herald this week, show Australian diplomats have been talking to the US Justice Department for more than a year about US criminal investigations of WikiLeaks and Mr Assange.

U.S. jobless rate drops to 2-1/2 year low 02 Dec 2011 The U.S. unemployment rate tumbled to a 2-1/2 year low in November, even though the pace of hiring remained too slow to suggest a significant acceleration in the labor market recovery. Nonfarm payrolls increased by 120,000 jobs last month, the Labor Department said on Friday, and the jobless rate dropped to 8.6 percent, the lowest since March 2009, from 9.0 percent in October.

December 2, 2011 by legitgov

Obama lawyers: Citizens targeted if at war with US 01 Dec 2011 U.S. citizens are legitimate military targets when they take up arms with al-Qaida, top national security lawyers in the Obama regime said Thursday. The lawyers were asked at a national security conference about the CIA killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen and [alleged] leading al-Qaida figure. He died in a Sept. 30 U.S. drone strike in the mountains of Yemen. The government lawyers, CIA counsel Stephen Preston and Pentagon counsel Jeh Johnson, said U.S. citizens do not have immunity when they are at war with the United States. [Taking up arms with al-Qaeda? In that case, the CIA will be at war with itself. --MDR]

Unions claim win in mass UK strike 01 Dec 2011 British unions claimed that up to two million public sector workers went on strike over changes to their pensions after the government responded to slashed growth forecasts with fresh spending cuts. In what unions called the biggest walkout in decades, thousands of schools were shut, hospitals operated with minimum staffing levels and local authorities were paralysed, although the government contested the unions' figures. Thousands of workers marched through central London and Manchester, northwest England, during the 24-hour strike.

Senate Declines to Clarify Rights of American Terror Suspects Arrested in U.S.

December 2, 2011 by legitgov

Senate Declines to Clarify Rights of American Terror Suspects Arrested in U.S. 02 Dec 2011 The Senate on Thursday decided to leave unanswered a momentous question about constitutional rights in the war against Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh]: whether government officials have the power to arrest people inside the United States and hold them in military custody indefinitely and without a trial. Lawmakers voted 99 to 1 to say the bill does not affect "existing law" about people arrested inside the United States. The disputed provision would bolster the authorization enacted by Congress a decade ago to use military force against the perpetrators of the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. It says the government may imprison suspected members of Al Qaeda or its allies in indefinite military custody. Before voting to leave current law unchanged, the Senate rejected, 55 to 45, a proposal by Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, to instead say that Americans are exempt from detention under the 2001 authorization to use military force.

December 2, 2011 by legitgov

Senate votes to allow indefinite detention of Americans 01 Dec 2011 The Senate on Thursday evening essentially blessed the indefinite detention of American citizens who join Al Qaeda. By a 45-55 vote, senators rejected an amendment from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) that would have excluded U.S. citizens from the detention authority created by the Authorization for the Use of Military Force passed in 2001 after the Sept. 11 attacks [inside job]. Feinstein's amendment would have inserted language excluding Americans into the detainee provisions of the Senate version of the National Defense Authorization Act. An earlier Feinstein amendment seeking to limit new detention-related rules to prisoners captured outside the U.S. also failed, on a 45-55 vote.

Japan may announce Fukushima cold shutdown on Dec. 16: Yomiuri

December 2, 2011 by legitgov

Japan may announce Fukushima cold shutdown on Dec. 16: Yomiuri 01 Dec 2011 Japan may announce on December 16 that tsunami-damaged nuclear reactors in Fukushima are in a cold shutdown, the Yomiuri newspaper reported on Friday. The Fukushima Daiichi plant, 240 km (150 miles) northeast of Tokyo, was wrecked by the events of March 11, which knocked out reactor cooling systems, causing meltdowns of nuclear fuel rods. A cold shutdown occurs when water used to cool nuclear fuel rods remains below its boiling point, preventing the fuel from reheating.

Obama lights National Christmas Tree near White House

December 2, 2011 by legitgov

Obama lights National Christmas Tree near White House 01 Dec 2011 The sights and sounds swirling around Thursday's annual lighting of the National Christmas Tree rang of the yuletide traditions of yore: a security sweep in the afternoon, the jazzy stylings of a military band, attendees milling about with their hands wrapped around steaming cups of hot chocolate. For the first time in 33 years, the Colorado blue spruce illuminating President's Park has been replaced, according to National Park Service spokesman Bill Line. The old evergreen was toppled by 60-mph winds in February, Line said.

Los Angeles wind storm disrupts flights, cuts power --10 tractor-trailer trucks tipped over by crosswind gusts north of Salt Lake City 01 Dec 2011 A powerful wind storm with gale-force gusts left much of the Los Angeles area strewn with toppled trees and downed power lines on Thursday, slowing traffic, damaging homes and knocking out electricity to over 350,000 customers. An hourlong power outage at Los Angeles International Airport forced nearly two dozen inbound commercial flights to divert to other airports, and flight delays lingered even after electricity was restored, LAX spokeswoman Nancy Castles said.

December 2, 2011 by legitgov

Americans not immune if they act against U.S: CIA 01 Dec 2011 American citizens are not immune from being treated like an enemy if they take up arms against the United States, the CIA general counsel said on Thursday. CIA General Counsel Stephen Preston was responding to a question at an American Bar Association national security conference about the killing of Americans overseas without presenting evidence of wrongdoing. A CIA drone strike killed Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born cleric linked to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, earlier this year.

December 2, 2011 by legitgov

Senate Approves $662 Billion 'Defense' Bill 01 Dec 2011 Ignoring a presidential [phony] veto threat, the Democratic-controlled Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly approved a massive, $662 billion defense bill that would require the military to hold suspected terrorists linked to 'al-Qaida' or its affiliates, even those captured on U.S. soil. The vote was 93-7 for the bill authorizing money for military personnel, weapons systems, national security programs in the Energy Department, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in the fiscal year that began Oct. 1.

"I'm going to be the nominee," the former Speaker told ABC News. "It's very hard not to look at the recent polls and think that the odds are very high I'm going to be the nominee." The bold assertion came after Gingrich refused to criticize the Republican challengers who have begun attacking him and his record.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been misusing its Community Outreach Program, intended to improve the relationship between the bureau and the Muslims, for the purpose, the Associated Press reported on Thursday.

NATO attack threatens war on militants: Pakistan 01 Dec 2011 Pakistan, enraged by a NATO cross-border attack that killed 24 soldiers, could end support for the U.S.-led war on of militancy if its sovereignty is violated again, the foreign minister said, warning that "enough is enough." The South Asian nation has already shown its anger over the weekend strike by pulling out of an international conference in Germany next week on Afghanistan. "Enough is enough.

Former top Israeli general says explosions that reportedly hit Iranian nuclear sites not accidents

December 1, 2011 by legitgov

Former top Israeli general says explosions that reportedly hit Iranian nuclear sites not accidents 30 Nov 2011 Israeli officials said in a report Wednesday that a mysterious explosion at an Iranian nuclear facility two days ago was no accident. The remarks surfaced in a Times of London story reporting that satellite images show smoke billowing from the uranium enrichment facility in the city of Isfahan. "There aren't many coincidences," retired Major-General Giora Eiland told Israel's army radio, noting that it was the second attack on an Iranian nuclear site in a month. "When there are so many events, there is probably some sort of guiding hand, though perhaps it's the hand of God," said Eiland, who is Israel's former national security chief. ['Hand of God' or 'work of a sociopath.' I'm stickin' with the latter. --LRP]

Man-made flu virus with potential to wipe out many millions is created in research lab --'Anthrax isn't scary at all compared to this' --Just five tweaks to H5N1 makes it more contagious 28 Nov 2011 A group of scientists is pushing to publish research about how they created a man-made flu virus that could potentially wipe out civilisation. The deadly virus is a genetically tweaked version of the H5N1 bird flu strain, but is far more infectious and could pass easily between millions of people at a time. There are fears that the modified virus is so dangerous it could be used for bio-warfare, if it falls into the wrong hands [such as USociopaths and pharma-terrorists, who are *dying* to get an avian flu pandemic started].
