May 21, 2012 by legitgov

Injuries, arrests in clashes between protesters and police 20 May 2012 A standoff between police and anti-war demonstrators near the NATO summit at McCormick Place left several protesters bloodied and led to dozens of arrests, as delegates gathered for the first of two days of meetings. The confrontation, which flared up late this afternoon near the corner of Michigan Avenue and Cermak Road, lasted for almost two hours, as officers in full riot gear went nose to nose with demonstrators, with police determined to keep the crowd away from the convention center where NATO delegates were meeting.

May 21, 2012 by legitgov

'West mulling military action against Iran' 21 May 2012 Some Western countries are still considering a military operation against Iran as an option over its nuclear programme, a Russian minister said Sunday. "Russia is concerned that the possibility to try to solve the Iranian nuclear problem by military means is still viewed as real," Xinhua quoted Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying. "We still hear messages from public and intelligence channels, which show that certain capitals regard this option as much more applicable to the situation (around Iran) than it was before," he said upon his return from the G8 summit in the US.

Federal appeals panel hears CIA leak case in Va. 18 May 2012 The federal government is asking an appeals panel to reverse a ruling that shields a reporter from testifying in the case of an ex-CIA officer charged with leaking classified information about a botched covert operation in Iran. U.S. Department of Justice attorney Robert Parker told the three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday that it should reverse a pretrial ruling by U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema that sharply narrowed the scope of reporter James Risen's testimony in the prosecution of Jeffrey Sterling to very narrow issues that didn't require Risen to name his source.

May 20, 2012 by legitgov

Chicago police accused of planting evidence in 'Molotov cocktail' plot 19 May 2012 Lawyers for three protesters arrested on terrorist-related charges ahead of the Nato summit have accused police of entrapping them and encouraging an alleged bomb-making effort. The three were arrested on Wednesday night when members of the Chicago police department battered their way into an apartment in the Bridgeport area of the city. According to court documents released on Saturday, the three men considered targeting Barack Obama's re-election headquarters and the home of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel. The Chicago police department said the men, described as self-proclaimed anarchists and members of the "Black Bloc" movement, were arrested on Wednesday and charged on Friday with conspiracy to commit terrorism, providing material support for terrorism and possession of an explosive incendiary device.

U.S. army instructor shot in Yemen attack: security source 20 May 2012 A U.S. military instructor helping train Yemeni coastguards was shot and seriously wounded in an attack by unidentified assailants in the Red Sea city of Hudaida on Sunday, a Yemeni security source said. The source said two other U.S. instructors, who were travelling in the same car, were not hurt in the attack, which happened before noon on the group's journey to work. A caller told Reuters by telephone - not the group's usual method of communication - that the al Qaeda[CIAduh]-linked Ansar al-Sharia group was behind the attack.

May 20, 2012 by legitgov

2 accused in bomb-making schemes tied to NATO summit 20 May 2012 Two more men have been charged with planning to make explosives to be used during the NATO summit. But authorities said they are not connected to three men in their 20s who were arrested in a Bridgeport raid earlier this week and charged under the state's anti-terror statutes with planning to use Molotov cocktails during the summit. Sebastian Senakiewicz, 24, was arrested Thursday afternoon without incident at his home, according to a police report. Mark Neiweem, 28, was charged with attempted possession of explosive or incendiary devices, prosecutors said.

Afghanistan toll as NATO leaders gather: 13 dead in suicide bombing Saturday; 2 U.S. troops killed Friday 19 May 2012 As NATO leaders prepared for a two-day summit in Chicago to plot their armed forces' 'exit' from Afghanistan in 2014, a suicide bomber on Saturday detonated his explosive vest at a police checkpoint in eastern Khost province, killing 10 civilians, including two children, and three Afghan policemen. The blast, which occurred at Ali Sher district on the border with Pakistan, also wounded five policemen and a child, said a spokesman for Khost governor's office, Baryalai Rawan. In eastern Kunar province, two U.S. soldiers were reportedly killed on Friday when insurgents fired rockets at their base.

The restricted area was expanded temporarily for the Group of Eight talks.

Fukushima Reactor 4 poses massive global risk

May 20, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima Reactor 4 poses massive global risk 19 May 2012 The troubled Reactor 4 at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is at the centre of a potential catastrophe. Reactor 4 -- and to a lesser extent Reactor 3 -- still hold large quantities of cooling waters surrounding spent nuclear fuel, all bound by a fragile concrete pool located 30 metres above the ground, and exposed to the elements. A magnitude 7 or 7.5 earthquake would likely fracture that pool, and disaster would ensue, says Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer with Fairewinds Energy Education who has visited the site. The 1,535 spent fuel rods would become exposed to the air and would likely catch fire, with the most-recently added fuel rods igniting first.

Detained NATO protesters accused of Chicago terror plot 19 May 2012 Three men arrested when police raided a Chicago apartment had been planning to attack President Barack Obama's campaign headquarters, Mayor Rahm Emanuel's home and other targets, including police stations and squad cars, prosecutors said Saturday. The trio was arrested Wednesday in a nighttime raid in the Bridgeport neighborhood on the South Side. They're accused of trying to make Molotov cocktails ahead of the two-day NATO summit that starts Sunday. The three were charged with providing material support for terrorism, conspiracy to commit terrorism and possession of explosives.

National Guard's $26 million Sponsoring NASCAR's Dale Earnhardt Jr. Results in ZERO Recruits --Wasting Taxpayer Money Subsidizing NASCAR Must Stop 18 May 2012 Today, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) expressed her outrage and disbelief at the level of waste in the National Guard's recruitment budget. In 2012, the National Guard is spending $26.5 million to sponsor Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s #88 car in NASCAR races for the purposes of recruitment. Over the past five years Earnhardt's racing team has received over $136 million in taxpayer funds from the National Guard - making him the highest paid military contractor in professional sports.

Congressmen Seek to Lift Propaganda Ban

May 19, 2012 by legitgov

Congressmen Seek to Lift Propaganda Ban --Propaganda that was supposed to target foreigners could now be aimed at Americans, reversing a longstanding policy. 18 May 2012 An amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill, BuzzFeed has learned. The amendment would "strike the current ban on domestic dissemination" of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the Pentagon, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee's official website. The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987--that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government's misinformation campaigns.

3 men charged with terror conspiracy ahead of NATO summit 19 May 2012 Three men arrested earlier this week when police raided a Chicago apartment were being held Saturday on terrorism conspiracy charges, accused of trying to make Molotov cocktails ahead of the NATO summit. Their attorney, Sarah Gelsomino, said the men are "absolutely in shock and have no idea where these charges are coming from." They were scheduled to be in court later Saturday for a bond hearing on charges of conspiracy to commit terrorism, possession of an explosive or incendiary device and providing material support for terrorism. Six others arrested Wednesday in the South Side raid were released Friday without being charged. [Anonymous, get busy.]

MBTA to spread bacteria on Red Line in bioterror test

MBTA to spread bacteria on Red Line in bioterror test --Homeland Security and the T plan to release 'dead' bacteria at three Red Line stops during off-hours. --Dates for the tests have not been made known. 18 May 2012 The MBTA [Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority] and Homeland Security plan to release dead [Yeah, right!] bacteria into three Red Line stations this summer to test bioterror sensors. The bacteria, bacillus subtilis, is not infectious even in its live form, according to government documents. The tests will be done in Cambridge and Somerville at the Davis, Harvard Square and Porter Stations. [So, the same sociopaths who carried out the 9/11 attacks are going to spray bacteria on us.

US Special Forces in Yemen 17 May 2012 A group of about 20 U.S. special forces are on the ground in Yemen, helping the government fight insurgents in the south of the country, officials say. Their work includes using high-tech equipment to help the Yemeni military locate targets, the Los Angeles Times reported. The new president US-installed puppet, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadid, is reported to be more willing to work with the United States than his predecessor, Ali Abdullah Saleh, who stepped down after months of protests.

Designer Flu: How scientists made a killer virus airborne

US bioterrorists are dying to get the pandemic party started: Designer Flu: How scientists made a killer virus airborne 02 Jun 2012 Last summer, scientists performed an experiment that could have been ripped from the script of a Hollywood thriller. Sealed off in high-tech laboratories in the Netherlands and Wisconsin, researchers transformed one of the world's most deadly viruses, transmissible by direct contact, into versions capable of spreading through the air... Merely swapping hemagglutinins wasn't enough to make the composite virus into an airborne infectious flu in ferrets, though. [Wisconsin] Researchers helped the virus along by transferring it directly from one ferret to another. At least four changes to the molecule were needed to make the virus readily transmit via airborne droplets, the researchers found. [See: Flu 'Oddities'.]

Wisconsin Dems furious with DNC for refusing to invest big money in Walker recall

May 18, 2012 by legitgov

Wisconsin Dems furious with DNC for refusing to invest big money in Walker recall By Greg Sargent 14 May 2012 Top Wisconsin Democrats are furious with the national party - and the Democratic National Committee in particular - for refusing their request for a major investment in the battle to recall Scott Walker, I'm told. The failure to put up the money Wisconsin Dems need to execute their recall plan comes at a time when the national Republican Party is sinking big money into defending Walker, raising fears that the DNC's reluctance could help tip the race his way... Obama's political operation is providing volunteers with info on how to get involved in the recall battle and how to register to vote, but isn't investing any money in the race, according to officials. [That's because Obusha works 24/7 for the GOP and his Wall Street overlords.]

Lawyers Guild claims NATO activists 'disappeared' without warrant or charges --'Essentially these people were disappeared for more than 12 hours until we could finally locate them.' 18 May 2012 According to an interview with National Lawyers Guild (NLG) spokesman Kris Hermes, Chicago police officers raided a Bridgeport apartment complex on Wednesday evening without a valid warrant and detained up to nine people without cause. The NLG worked through the night to locate the arrested activists. They were unable to get any information from the Chicago Police Department (CPD) or even any acknowledgement that a raid had taken place.

United States Enrichment Corp., bailed out once, seeks more federal money for new project --USEC's supporters in Congress have inserted language in versions of three different spending bills that would provide as much as $150 million. 16 May 2012 The troubled [corpora-terrorists] United States Enrichment Corp., on the brink of closing a Kentucky enrichment plant, has been bailed out in a complex Energy Department accord designed to keep that facility open one more year. But USEC, a Bethesda-based firm that provides fuel for nuclear power reactors, is seeking more federal money to carry out research and development for the American Centrifuge Project, a more efficient enrichment plant in Ohio that the company calls vital to its future.

U.S. has 55 daily encounters with 'suspected terrorists' --TSC operates a 24-hour command center, resembling something from a Hollywood thriller, complete with giant wall-screen projections and signs flashing 'SECRET.' 15 May 2012 Law enforcement and homeland security personnel face an average of 55 daily encounters with "known or suspected terrorists" named on government watchlists, officials told Reuters. U.S. officials said the encounters, which involve airport and border security personnel as well as federal and local law enforcement officers, are reported to the Terrorist Screening Center (TSC), an interagency unit led by an FBI official based in a tightly guarded building in northern Virginia. The watchlists include the best known "no fly list" as well as a "selectee list" of people who the government thinks should get extra screening or questioning before being allowed to board an airplane.

Nuclear power regulators call for fewer immediate evacuations in an accident

May 17, 2012 by legitgov

Nuclear power regulators call for fewer immediate evacuations in an accident 17 May 2012 The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the nation's nuclear power regulators quietly overhauled community emergency planning for nuclear accidents for the first time in more than three decades, requiring fewer exercises for major accidents and recommending that fewer people be evacuated right away. The revamp is the first since the program began as a result of the Three Mile Island accident, the worst commercial nuclear accident in U.S. history. The revisions also eliminate a requirement that local responders always practice for a release of radiation. Eric Epstein, head of the watchdog group Three Mile Island Alert, called the new rules "insane."

AP: Evacuations and drills pared near nuclear plants 16 May 2012 Without fanfare, the nation's nuclear power regulators have overhauled community emergency planning for the first time in more than three decades, requiring fewer exercises for major accidents and recommending that fewer people be evacuated right away. Nuclear watchdogs voiced surprise and dismay over the quietly adopted revamp — the first since the program began after Three Mile Island in 1979. A mandate that local responders always run practice exercises for a radiation release has been eliminated — a move viewed as downright bizarre by some emergency planners.

Authorities: Nuclear engineer sought 'thrill' in DuPage hijacking 11 May 2012 (IL) A man who operates reactors at a nuclear power plant was "thrill seeking" when he put on a mask and hijacked a woman's car at gunpoint, DuPage County authorities said Friday. Michael Buhrman, a senior reactor operator at Dresden Nuclear Power Plant in Morris, was charged with aggravated vehicular hijacking. Authorities said the 31-year-old Coal City man was armed with a loaded .45 caliber handgun and wearing a Halloween mask that resembled an elderly man when he approached a woman about 10 p.m. Wednesday in a Kohl's parking lot in Woodridge.

2 US Navy ships collide in Pacific 16 May 2012 An 844-foot-long U.S. Navy assault ship collided with a refueling tanker Wednesday in the Pacific Ocean, causing damage to both ships, but there were no injuries or fuel spills, military officials said. The midmorning accident between the amphibious assault vessel USS Essex and the oiler USNS Yukon occurred about 120 miles off the coast of Southern California as the Essex was approaching the Yukon to be refueled, said Cmdr. Charlie Brown, a spokesman for the 3rd Fleet. Brown said the steering apparently stopped working on the Essex, which was carrying 982 crew members on its way to San Diego for scheduled maintenance.

Federal judge: Terror law violates 1st Amendment 16 May 2012 A judge on Wednesday struck down a portion of a law giving the government wide powers to regulate the detention, interrogation and prosecution of suspected terrorists, saying it left journalists, scholars and political activists facing the prospect of indefinite detention for exercising First Amendment rights. U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest in Manhattan said in a written ruling that a single page of the law has a "chilling impact on First Amendment rights."

Charges Sought in Bomb Plot Leak 13 May 2012 Top U.S. lawmakers called for criminal charges against the person who leaked classified information about a recent foiled Yemeni [CIA] bomb plot, warning that the intelligence breach posed a danger to national security and ratcheting up scrutiny of its source.
