December 26, 2011 by legitgov

Assange may be investigated over theft of US military secrets 26 Dec 2011 New claims have emerged that Australian WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange played a role in stealing US military secrets which he published online. The former hacker was accused by lawyers in the US of coaching Private Bradley Manning on how to crack passwords and hack into military computer networks. During Manning's pre-trial hearing in Fort Meade, last week lawyers produced logs of online chats that show Assange played a role in Manning uploading 700,000 stolen military documents which were passed on to WikiLeaks. US government digital forensic experts who examined Manning's computer found communications between him and an online chat user identified as Julian Assange, who guided Manning to break "hash codes".

The chat logs - revealed in the US military court on Thursday - represent the first evidence the US government has produced alleging that Assange helped Manning, 24, remove and transmit files from a top-secret facility in Iraq, the report said.

'Anonymous' claims to have hacked U.S.-based security think tank --Hackers promised a week full of Christmas-inspired assaults 25 Dec 2011 Hackers on Sunday claimed to have stolen a raft of e-mails and credit card data from U.S.-based security think tank Stratfor, promising it was just the start of a weeklong Christmas-inspired assault on a long list of targets. Members of the loose-knit hacking movement known as "Anonymous" posted a link on Twitter to what they said was Stratfor's tightly-guarded, confidential client list. Among those on the list: The U.S. Army, the U.S. Air Force and the Miami Police Department. [Awesome!]

December 24, 2011 by legitgov

'Afghan civilians killed for no reason' 24 Dec 2011 US-led foreign forces have killed dozens of civilians in Afghanistan without any reasons, a fact-finding team appointed by Afghan President Hamid Karzai has revealed. Tahir Safi, an advisor to Karzai, told reporters on Saturday that one child, who had climbed a tree on December 13, was among the 21 civilians killed by US-led forces. "Our delegation found that a child who went up a tree to collect leaves for sheep was killed in the bombing by the NATO chopper without any pre-coordination with the Kandahar administration," Safi said. "The child's father rushed to the bombing site with other family members as another chopper of the international forces dropped other bombs," he added.

Troops attack protesters in Yemen capital

Troops attack protesters in Yemen capital 24 Dec 2011 More than 100,000 protesters who entered Yemen's capital Saturday after a 4-day march from another city were attacked by elite troops loyal to outgoing President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who opened fire with guns, water cannons and tear gas. Medical officials said at least three protesters were killed. The crowd of protesters had marched from Taiz, a city that has been a major opposition center 170 miles to the south. The protest, called the March of Life, aimed to put pressure on the country's new government not to grant Saleh immunity from prosecution. The violence underlined the continuing turmoil in Yemen even after Saleh signed a U.S.- and Saudi-backed deal last month by which he handed his powers to his vice president and committed to step down completely in return for immunity.

Obama signs two-month extension of payroll tax cut

December 23, 2011 by legitgov

Obama signs two-month extension of payroll tax cut 23 Dev 2011 President Barack Obama signed a two-month extension of the payroll tax cut Friday, ending what had been a heated political stalemate and sealing a hard-fought win for Democrats on an issue -- taxes -- that has historically favored the GOP. Earlier in the day, the measure cleared the Democratic-controlled Senate and the Republican-controlled House of Representatives by unanimous consent, a procedural move allowing the measure to pass even though most members of Congress were already home for the holidays. Among other items, the $33 billion bill also includes a two-month extension of emergency federal unemployment benefits and the so-called "doc fix," a delay in scheduled payment reductions to doctors who treat Medicare patients.

'Foreign agents behind Baghdad blasts'

December 23, 2011 by legitgov

'Foreign agents behind Baghdad blasts' 22 Dec 2011 Iran's deputy foreign minister has condemned serial explosions in Iraq's capital of Baghdad as schemes by some of the foreign countries aimed at sowing discord among Iraqi Muslims. "Such efforts are doomed to fail, and Iraq's vigilant and wise people and the country's [democratically] elected government as well as its police and security forces will give a crushing response to the plot's perpetrators," Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Thursday. Warning about the effect of such terrorist attacks on regional security, Amir-Abdollahian said, "Those who have had a hand in these blasts must know that the region's enemies are the only ones who benefit from these measures."

December 23, 2011 by legitgov

CEO pay raises jump a median of 27% in 2010, report finds 15 Dec 2011 American CEOs raked in fat paychecks last year, as head honchos netted a median 27% increase in compensation in fiscal year 2010. Top executives from the S&P 500 scored a median 36.5% bump in realized compensation after two years of pay declines in 2008 and 2009, according to the ninth annual report from research group GMI. It's sure to irk Occupy protesters, who have railed against the high-flying lifestyles of the 1% while the average American works more for less money and cuts back on spending.

8 U.S. soldiers charged in death of comrade in Afghanistan

December 23, 2011 by legitgov

8 U.S. soldiers charged in death of comrade in Afghanistan 21 Dec 2011 The U.S. Army, which has struggled in recent years to combat a mounting suicide toll, took an unusual step when it announced Wednesday that it had charged eight American soldiers serving in Afghanistan in connection with the apparent suicide of one of their lower-ranking comrades. The charges in the death of Pvt. Danny Chen, a 19-year-old infantryman from New York City, came after a vigorous, weeks-long campaign by advocacy groups and family members hoping to pressure the Pentagon to investigate allegations that Chen had been the subject of hazing within the ranks and had been repeatedly taunted with racial slurs.

Boehner Signs On to Payroll Tax Deal Amid Isolation, Attacks

December 23, 2011 by legitgov

Boehner Signs On to Payroll Tax Deal Amid Isolation, Attacks 23 Dec 2011 Deserted by many of his fellow Republicans, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner surrendered to attacks from President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats and agreed to a two-month extension of a payroll tax cut that he derided hours earlier. The decision kicks the fight over extending the tax cut for 160 million U.S. workers into early next year without resolving deep divides over how to cover the cost through 2012. [The bill is a victory for the mainstream GOP, Wall Street, and Obusha -- one and the same -- as the millionaires' tax was dropped; the deadly Keystone XL pipeline, whereupon the oil will flow only to China, was added, poised for an Obama approval in the next round of 'negotiations;' and Social Security was further de-funded, leading to its eventual privatization and end. Despite the media spin and Boehner's poor leadership, this tax 'deal' was and is a complete capitulation by the Democrats (as usual), thanks to Obama. Any tax cuts to the middle class should be funded by taxing the 'One Percent.' Obama pretends to agree with this notion to win the 'Left,' but notice he's not *once* signed onto it? --LRP]

Judge rules against Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White

Judge rules against Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White --Judge says secretary of state ineligible to run for office 23 Dec 2011 Embattled Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White's hope of staying in office may depend on the Indiana Supreme Court. That court is expected to soon hear whether Marion Circuit Court Judge Louis Rosenberg was right when he ruled Thursday that White (R) was ineligible to be on the 2010 ballot, and that Democrat Vop Osili should be declared the winner. The Indiana attorney general's office immediately said it would appeal the decision, and both Republicans and Democrats said they expect the Supreme Court to ultimately decide White's fate. Even if White won the appeal of Rosenberg's ruling, he still must survive a criminal trial in Hamilton County, where he is facing seven felony counts of voter fraud, perjury and theft.

Prosecutors say Manning collaborated with WikiLeaks' Assange in stealing secret documents 22 Dec 2011 Military prosecutors presented new and detailed evidence Thursday that they said showed that Pfc. Bradley Manning collaborated with Julian Assange, the founder of the anti-secrecy Web site WikiLeaks, in stealing more than 700,000 documents from classified computer systems and publishing them on the Internet. Assange came under grand jury investigation, possibly for conspiracy, after WikiLeaks publicized secret U.S. documents, roiling U.S. diplomatic relations and turning Manning, for some, into a whistleblowing hero.

More than 100 anti-nuclear demonstrators, most of them women, met with officials of the Nuclear Safety Commission this week and handed over a statement calling for a transparent investigation into the accident and a permanent shutdown of all nuclear power plants.

Court Martial for Bradley Manning in Wikileaks Case? 22 Dec 2011 After a week of testimony, PFC 1st class Bradley Manning's fate for now lies in the hands of a military officer who will determine if he should face a court martial for releasing more than 700,000 confidential government documents to Wikileaks.
