Bush, said the White House at least twice asked intelligence officials to gather sensitive information on Juan Cole, a University of Michigan professor who writes an influential blog that criticized the war.

June 18, 2011 by legitgov

US in talks with Taliban, says Karzai --Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, confirms US involvement in the peace [aka surrender] talks at a news conference in Kabul 18 Jun 2011 The US and other foreign powers are engaged in preliminary talks with the Taliban about a possible settlement to the war in Afghanistan, the Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, has said. Diplomats have already said there have been months of preliminary talks between the two sides, and Karzai, who is a strong advocate of peace talks, has long said that Afghans are in contact with insurgent groups. "Peace talks are going on with the Taliban. The foreign military and especially the United States itself is going ahead with these negotiations," Karzai told a news conference in the Afghan capital. [Get ready. USociopaths are preparing to pay the Taliban to stop fighting, as they did in Iraq under cover of the 'surge,' which never worked. This action is undertaken to 'save face,' as the US would have been defeated in both Iraq and Afghanistan if they didn't use taxpayer dollars to bribe its opposition to lay down their arms and let the US steal the oil, gas, opium, etc. --LRP]

Obama Overruled 2 Top Lawyers on War Power in Libya

June 18, 2011 by legitgov

Obama Overruled 2 Top Lawyers on War Power in Libya 18 Jun 2011 President Obama rejected the views of top lawyers at the Pentagon and the Justice Department when he decided that he had the legal authority to continue American military participation in the air war in Libya without Congressional authorization, according to officials familiar with internal administration deliberations. Jeh C. Johnson, the Pentagon general counsel, and Caroline D. Krass, the acting head of the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, had told the White House that they believed that the United States military's activities in the NATO-led air war amounted to "hostilities." Under the War Powers Resolution, that would have required Mr. Obama to terminate or scale back the mission after May 20. But Mr. Obama decided instead to adopt the legal analysis of several other senior members of his legal team... who argued that the United States military's activities fell short of "hostilities."

Second Nebraska Nuclear Plant Threatened By Flooding

June 17, 2011 by legitgov

Second Nebraska Nuclear Plant Threatened By Flooding 17 Jun 2011 A second nuclear power plant in Nebraska is being threatened by rising floodwaters, but the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a federal watchdog lapdog agency, says the plant's owners are taking the appropriate steps to ward off danger, according to a report in the Omaha World-Herald. The Cooper Power Station would have to go into cold shutdown should floodwaters rise an additional six feet, a prospect local officials say is highly unlikely. The Cooper plant is located 70 miles south of Omaha. The other nuclear plant at risk of flooding, the Fort Calhoun power station, is just north of Omaha.

Japan Plant Starts Treating Radioactive Water 17 Jun 2011 A system for decontaminating highly radioactive water incorporating U.S. and French technology began full operations at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex Friday, a development that will help reduce the vast amount of irradiated water that has become a major obstacle to bringing the plant to stability. 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.

'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.

'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' 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.]
