January 26, 2011 by legitgov

German Held by US Military at Bagram Prison --The arrest took place in the middle of the night. 26 Jan 2011 US forces are holding a German citizen of Afghan descent at Bagram prison outside of Kabul. The man's family insists he was merely in Afghanistan to visit his father -- and says German officials were complicit in his arrest. The arrest took place in the middle of the night. In early January, US troops in Afghanistan stormed a house in Kabul and detained 23-year-old Haddid N., according to the Süddeutsche Zeitung on Wednesday. He is now being held at the Bagram Airforce Base on the outskirts of the Afghan capital.

'Egypt protesters torch govt. building' 26 Jan 2011 Protesters in Egypt have torched a government building in the port city of Suez, witnesses say, as protests continue against the government of President Hosni Mubarak. Protesters threw Molotov cocktails at the building on Wednesday, setting parts of it on fire and also lobbed firebombs at the headquarters of the ruling National Democratic Party, AFP reported. Thousands of Egyptians poured to streets across the country to continue the unprecedented demonstrations, defying a government ban announced earlier by the Interior Ministry.

Blackwater suit tossed 7 years after grisly deaths 25 Jan 2011 A federal judge has tossed a lawsuit that blamed the security company formerly known as Blackwater for the deaths of four contractors killed in a grisly 2004 ambush on the restive streets of Iraq. U.S. District Judge James C. Fox said court-ordered arbitration fell apart because neither side was paying the costs of that process, so he decided to shut the case nearly seven years after the killings. The lawsuit was filed about a year after the men's deaths.

January 26, 2011 by legitgov

Bank Failures Rise to 7 24 Jan 2011 Last Friday, U.S. regulators shuttered four more banks in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Colorado, pushing up the failed U.S. banks figure to 7 so far in 2011. These were preceded by 157 bank failures in 2010, 140 in 2009 and 25 in 2008. While the bigger banks benefited greatly from the various programs launched by the government, many smaller banks continue to struggle.

US President Barack Obama, lawmakers mark Arizona shooting 26 Jan 2011 With black and white ribbons and a seat symbolically left empty, US President Barack Obama and sombre lawmakers paid tribute today to the victims of a January 8 deadly shooting rampage. Mr Obama, in making his annual State of the Union speech, was to pause to celebrate the victims and heroes of the assassination attempt on Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords. With the Democratic lawmaker working through a difficult recovery, the congressional delegation from her home state planned to sit together around an empty seat in the packed House of Representatives chamber.

Obama's call for "our generation's Sputnik moment"

January 26, 2011 by legitgov

Obama's call for "our generation's Sputnik moment" [Yeah, more corporate giveaways and tax breaks for the rich.] 25 Jan 2011 In a House chamber draped with an air of bipartisan civility after the Gabrielle Giffords shooting, President Obama sought in his State of the Union address Tuesday night to recast the looming showdown with Republicans over deficits and spending as an issue of American competitiveness. "This is our generation's Sputnik moment," Obama said, referring to the former Soviet Union's launch of a space satellite in 1957 that served as a wake-up call to the United States, much as China's rise is seen as a threat to U.S. economic leadership now.

Obama's Second State of the Union 26 Jan 2011 Following is the prepared text for President Obama’s second State of the Union address on Tuesday, as released by the White House: Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, distinguished guests, and fellow Americans: Tonight I want to begin by congratulating the men and women of the 112th Congress, as well as your new Speaker, John Boehner. And as we mark this occasion, we are also mindful of the empty chair in this Chamber, and pray for the health of our colleague - and our friend - Gabby Giffords...

9/11: 'Awkward gaps and contradictions in official explanations' - You betcha!

January 26, 2011 by legitgov

9/11: 'Awkward gaps and contradictions in official explanations' - You betcha! By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 26 Jan 2011 I'd like to know *once and for all* how Osama bin Laden was able to command NORAD to 'stand down' the morning of the 9/11 attacks? I'd also like to know how bin Laden was able to 'pull' Lucky Larry's Building 7 (which, incidentally, was announced as having collapsed on the BBC before it even (exploded then) fell -- truth be damned). Bin Laden gave the order to shoot down a US commercial aircraft over Shanksville, PA? And, the lone terrorist rushed to squander, apparently in conjunction with the FBI -- like a squirrel in the dead of winter -- the surveillance footage of the 'plane' that hit the Pentagon? Osama bin Laden was responsible for 'huge surges in purchases of put options on stocks of the two airlines used in the attack -- United Airlines and American Airlines?'

The White House's corporate agenda

January 26, 2011 by legitgov

The White House's corporate agenda By Tom Eley 25 Jan 2011 The White House has in recent days gone out of its way to make clear that tonight's State of the Union Address will outline an agenda tailored to the demands of the American financial aristocracy... It is a damning commentary on the reactionary consensus of US politics that nearly two-and-a-half years after Wall Street propelled America and the entire world into the deepest crisis since the Great Depression, a Democratic president flaunts his complete subordination to the banks and corporations.

January 26, 2011 by legitgov

Internet 'kill switch' bill to return, prohibiting review by any court 24 Jan 2011 A controversial bill handing President Obama power over privately owned computer systems during a "national cyberemergency," [aka false flag] and prohibiting any review by the court system, will return this year. The revised version [first introduced last summer by Sens. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) and Susan Collins (R-ME)] includes new language saying that the federal government's designation of vital Internet or other computer systems "shall not be subject to judicial review." Another addition expanded the definition of critical infrastructure to include "provider of information technology," and a third authorized the submission of "classified" reports on security vulnerabilities.

Turkey releases report on flotilla incident, accusing Israel --Turkey publicizes its internal report on the flotilla debacle in response to Israel's Turkel Commission investigation report on Sunday 25 Jan 2011 Antagonism between Turkey and Israel is being reinvigorated as each nation's report about the lethal storming by Israeli commandos of the Mavi Marmara ship last May is made public. Eight Turks and an U.S. citizen of Turkish descent were killed during the 4:26 a.m. raid on the humanitarian aid flotilla... The Turkish report found that Israeli units shot dead two people from their helicopters before fast-roping onto the deck, where they battled passengers armed with sticks, clubs, and knives mostly drawn from the ship’s eight kitchens.

E-mails Suggest Bear Stearns Cheated Clients Out of Billions

E-mails Suggest Bear Stearns Cheated Clients Out of Billions 25 Jan 2011 Former Bear Stearns mortgage executives who now run mortgage divisions of Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, and Ally Financial have been accused of cheating and defrauding investors through the mortgage securities they created and sold while at Bear. According to e-mails and internal audits, JPMorgan had known about this fraud since the spring of 2008, but hid it from the public eye through legal maneuvering. Last week a lawsuit filed in 2008 by mortgage insurer Ambac Assurance Corp against Bear Stearns and JPMorgan was unsealed. The lawsuit's supporting e-mails, going back as far as 2005, highlight Bear traders telling their superiors they were selling investors like Ambac a "sack of shit."

Tony Blair went to war without cabinet consent, senior mandarins say --In some of most damning evidence heard by the inquiry to date, the respected former mandarins rejected claims made by Mr Blair to the committee last week in which he insisted that cabinet ministers were kept informed of the progress to war. 25 Jan 2011 Tony Blair has been accused by two former heads of the civil service of taking the country to war in Iraq without the approval of his cabinet. Lord Wilson of Dinton and Lord Turnbull both rejected the former prime minister’s claim that cabinet ministers "knew the score" and had been aware that he had agreed to invade Iraq soon after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Former Guantanamo detainee gets life sentence for single count of conspiracy 26 Jan 2011 A federal judge on Tuesday sentenced the first Guantanamo Bay detainee to be tried in a civilian court to life in prison for his role in the 1998 embassy bombings in Africa.

Kaplan of United States District Court delivered the maximum sentence: life with no parole. And he rejected the defense's request that Ghailani should have received a lesser sentence.

Bush Cabinet Secretaries Illegally Campaigned at Taxpayer Expense, Report Finds

Bush Cabinet Secretaries Illegally Campaigned at Taxpayer Expense, Report Finds --Independent Investigation Says Bush Appointees Violated Hatch Act in 2006 Elections 25 Jan 2011 Several high-ranking officials in the George W. Bush administration illegally used taxpayer-funded resources to campaign for Republican candidates during the 2006 midterm elections, an independent government watchdog concludes. The Office of Special Counsel outlined the findings of its three-year probe in a report released Monday night. The agency condemned overt electioneering by Bush appointees during the workday and the use of taxpayer funds to cover travel expenses for at least seven cabinet secretaries who were sent out on the campaign trail. [No worries. Barack Obama gave his mentor, George W. Bush, a pass on his 3,000 homicides on 9/11, war crimes, and waterboarding. Ergo, there's about as much chance of the 'Justice' Department investigating key officials in the Bush regime as a cat with a long tail in a room filled with rockers. As with MSNBC, Obama 'leans forward.' --LRP]

NBC: U.S. can't link accused Army private to Assange 24 Jan 2011 U.S. military officials tell NBC News that investigators have been unable to make any direct connection between a jailed army private suspected with leaking secret documents and Julian Assange, founder of the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks. The officials say that while investigators have determined that Manning had allegedly unlawfully downloaded tens of thousands of documents onto his own computer and passed them to an unauthorized person, [They did?] there is apparently no evidence he passed the files directly to Assange, or had any direct contact with the WikiLeaks figure.

The Next Robo-Signing Crisis?

January 25, 2011 by legitgov

The Next Robo-Signing Crisis? By Diana Olick 25 Jan 2011 It's the next big shoe to drop in the robo-signing foreclosure scandal. Call it part two. We already know some banks halted foreclosure sales nationwide in October when it was discovered that servicers took short cuts, so-called "robo-signing" in the foreclosure sale process in judicial foreclosure states - about half the country. Now it appears they may have done the same thing in a different part of the process, the Notice of Default, which takes place in the other half - i.e. the non-judicial states - this happens before the foreclosure sale.

Obama to propose five-year spending freeze in State of the Union address 25 Jan 2011 President Obama will call for reducing the deficit during his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, proposing a five-year freeze on non-defense government spending, officials said. His spending freeze proposal marks a modest extension of his earlier proposal to freeze spending for three years. He is expected to sidestep specifics, instead calling for members of both parties to work together to tackle the problem, according to congressional and administration officials.
