May 21, 2011 by legitgov

White House on War Powers Deadline: 'Limited' US Role in Libya Means No Need to Get Congressional Authorization 20 May 2011 In an effort to satisfy those arguing he needs to seek congressional authorization to continue US military activity in accordance with the War Powers Resolution, President Obama wrote a letter to congressional leaders this afternoon suggesting that the role is now so "limited" he does not need to seek congressional approval... "The US role is one of support," a senior administration official told ABC News, "and the kinetic pieces of that are intermittent." [See? With Bush, we used to just get f*cked. But with Obama, you get the cerebral, kinetic blowjob. Now, that's change we can believe in! --LRP The "kinetic pieces are intermittent?" What a bunch of Orwellian double-speak bullshit.

Spain bans young protesters ahead of elections 20 May 2011 Police and tens of thousands of young protesters camped out in dozens of Spanish cities are heading for a clash after the country's electoral authorities effectively ordered the government to dissolve the protests.

After the police ran to the scene, a larger car bomb went off, killing 26 officers and three civilians.

May 20, 2011 by legitgov

Al Qaeda Considered Targeting Oil Tankers 21 May 2011 Intelligence seized from Osama bin Laden's Pakistani hideout suggested that al Qaeda is interested in attacking oil tankers, Homeland Security officials said, a discovery that has prompted the agency to warn industry officials and local law enforcement. The warning comes on the heels of indications of continued interest by al Qaeda in attacking other favorite targets, including planes and trains. [Re: Oil tankers -- just al-Qaeda? I would think resistance movements all over the world -- especially where the US invaded/occupied for oil -- would want the tankers *gone.*]

Anthrax attacks: Failure of FBI to pursue investigation raises possibility killer still on loose

May 20, 2011 by legitgov

Anthrax attacks: Failure of FBI to pursue investigation raises possibility killer still on loose 19 May 2011 Buried in FBI laboratory reports about the anthrax mail attacks that killed five people in 2001 is data suggesting that a chemical may have been added to try to heighten the powder's potency, a move that some experts say exceeded the expertise of the presumed killer. The lab data... show unusual levels of silicon and tin in anthrax powder from two of the five letters. Those elements are found in compounds that could be used to weaponize the anthrax, enabling the lethal spores to float easily so they could be readily inhaled by the intended victims, scientists say. The existence of the silicon-tin chemical signature offered investigators the possibility of tracing purchases of the more than 100 such chemical products available before the attacks, which might have produced hard evidence against Ivins or led the agency to the real culprit. But the FBI lab reports released in late February give no hint that bureau agents tried to find the buyers of additives such as tin-catalyzed silicone polymers. The apparent failure of the FBI to pursue this avenue of investigation raises the ominous possibility that the killer is still on the loose. [Cui bono? The Bush regime. Tom Daschle was set to vote *no* on the Patriot Act... until he received 100,000 anthrax spores.]

Lawmakers Agree to Patriot Act With No Oversight Revisions 19 May 2011 Congressional leaders reached a deal Thursday to extend the Patriot Act, the set of antiterrorism laws passed in the wake of Sept. 11, with no oversight revisions, leadership aides in both parties said.

The provisions give law enforcement access to troves of personal information, including business and library records, so long as a judge approves. They also let officials keep wiretaps on terrorism suspects who change numbers and permit surveillance of foreign terrorism suspects who appear to be acting on their own.
