Fake terror plots, paid informants: the tactics of FBI 'entrapment' questioned --Critics say bureau is running a sting operation across America, targeting vulnerable people by luring them into fake terror plots 16 Nov 2011 Even more shocking was that the organisation, money, weapons and motivation for this plot did not come from real Islamic terrorists.

Fukushima nuclear fallout spread through oceans, researchers say 17 Nov 2011 Most of the radioactive fallout from the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear plant dropped into the ocean and began circling the planet, Japanese researchers say. Up to 80 per cent of the caesium released by the Fukushima Daiichi power plant after the March 11 disaster landed in the Pacific and made its way into other oceans around the world, scientists at the Meteorological Research Institute said. "The rest has fallen on land" in and around Fukushima, said Hiroshi Takahashi, a researcher at the institute in Ibaraki, northeast of Tokyo.

16 Detroit police officers leave shift in apparent protest 18 Nov 2011 Sixteen Detroit police officers assigned to the afternoon shift at the Northeastern District didn't complete their shift Friday as a part of an apparent protest over Mayor Dave Bing's proposed 10 percent pay cuts. Chief Ralph Godbee Jr. said he's going to have his internal affairs department investigate, but believes it is a "concerted effort isolated to one shift at one district." Bing's proposals called for givebacks of $40 million from city workers -- including police and fire employees -- as well as outsourcing services and major concessions from the city's unions.

LOL! Herman Cain Suggests Taliban is Running Libya 18 Nov 2011 Herman Cain suggested Friday that the Taliban were playing a role in Libya's new government. The comment initially was seen as another foreign policy misstep from the Republican presidential candidate, but aides later pointed to a one-time Libyan rebel leader who fought in Afghanistan to back up Cain's claims. Cain has spent the week trying to calm jitters about his foreign policy after he struggled to answer whether he supported President Barack Obama's approach to Libya. He ended the week trying to blame reporters for the moment, which was captured on video and quickly spread around the Internet.

'Assassination plot was US fabrication' 18 Nov 2011 Iranian Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani has described the US allegation that Iran's Quds Force was involved in a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to Washington as a "fabrication."

Appeals court weighs suits of four terrorists challenging Supermax move 18 Nov 2011 An attorney for four convicted terrorists asked a federal appellate court Thursday to find that the U.S. government violated the prisoners' due-process rights when it moved them to the federal Supermax prison in southern Colorado. The four men - Omar Rezaq, Ibrahim Elgabrowny, El-Sayyid Nosair, and Mohammed Saleh - were moved to Supermax from less-restrictive prisons between 1997 and 2003. The prisoners say they did nothing while in custody to warrant the step up in confinement and that the government gave them no legitimate chance to show they could be moved back to lower-security prisons.

Airstrike Against Iranian Nuclear Facilities Could Kill 100s of North Koreans and Russians

Airstrike Against Iranian Nuclear Facilities Could Kill 100s of North Koreans and Russians By John Daly 16 Nov 2011 As the drums for direct military intervention to derail Iran's purported covert military nuclear weapons program beat louder in both Jerusalem and Washington, an overlooked issue is the possibility of international "collateral damage," to use the Pentagon's favourite euphemism for civilian casualties. On 14 November South Korea's Chosun Ilbo stated, "Hundreds of North Korean scientists and engineers are working at about 10 nuclear and missile facilities in Iran, including Natanz..." Russian technicians also remain at Iran's first nuclear electrical energy facility, Bushehr. So, any aerial strikes against Iran's nuclear facilities could result in significant numbers of dead Russian and North Korean specialists as "collateral damage," with all the diplomatic uncertainties that might ensue from Moscow and Pyongyang as the body bags start arriving home.

Gingrich Said to Be Paid By Freddie Mac to Court Republicans 15 Nov 2011 Republican presidential candidate  Newt Gingrich said during a Nov. 9 debate that he earned a $300,000 fee to advise Freddie Mac as a "historian" who warned that the mortgage company's business model was "insane."

They say the former House speaker was asked to build bridges to Capitol Hill Republicans and develop an argument on behalf of the company's public-private structure that would resonate with conservatives seeking to dismantle it.
