FBI has accessed San Bernardino shooter's phone without Apple's help | 28 March 2016 | The Justice Department is abandoning its bid to force Apple to help it unlock the iPhone used by one of the shooters in the San Bernardino terrorist attack because investigators have found a way in without the tech giant's assistance, prosecutors wrote in a court filing Monday. In a three-sentence filing, prosecutors wrote they had "now successfully accessed the data" stored on Syed Rizwan Farook's iPhone, and they consequently no longer needed Apple's court-ordered help getting in. The stunning move averts a courtroom showdown pitting Apple and privacy interests against the government and security concerns that many in the tech community had warned might set dangerous precedents.

March 28, 2016 by legitgov

Trump threatens lawsuit over lost Louisiana delegates | 28 March 2016 | Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump threatened Sunday to sue Ted Cruz over potentially claiming more Louisiana delegates in a state he technically won.

In the Louisiana primary March 5, Trump won with more votes compared to Cruz. Trump won the popular vote, 124,818 votes to 113,949 for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz...But as the Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week, Cruz may wind up with as many as 10 more delegates from the state than the Trump due to out-organizing stealing from Trump in the state in the wake of the primary, when the identity of delegates remains to be determined.

Belgium Fears Nuclear Plants Are Vulnerable to Terrorism

March 26, 2016 by legitgov

Belgium Fears Nuclear Plants Are Vulnerable to Terrorism | 25 March 2016 | As a dragnet aimed at Islamic State operatives spiraled across Brussels and into at least five European countries on Friday, the authorities were also focusing on a narrower but increasingly alarming threat: the vulnerability of Belgium's nuclear power plants. The investigation into this week's deadly terror attacks in Brussels has raised fresh alarm that the Islamic State was seeking to attack, infiltrate, sabotage or obtain nuclear or radioactive material in a country with an already troubled history of security lapses at its nuclear facilities, a weak intelligence apparatus and a deeply rooted terrorist network. On Friday, the authorities stripped security badges from several workers at one of two plants where all nonessential employees were sent home hours after the attacks at the Brussels airport and one of the city's busiest subway stations three days before. Surveillance footage of a top official at another Belgian nuclear facility was discovered last year in the apartment of a suspected militant linked to the suicide bombers who unleashed the horror here in Brussels, as well as those who carried out the massacre that killed 130 people in Paris in November.
