Pentagon drops grisly leaflets in Syria

March 27, 2015 by legitgov

Pentagon drops grisly leaflets in Syria | 26 March 2015 | The Pentagon has dropped 60,000 leaflets warning people in the Syrian town of Ar-Raqqa not to join the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The leaflets depict a grisly image: An ISIS recruiting office with new recruits lining up to join, but then being put through a meat-grinder. The Pentagon said the leaflets were dropped over the town by a U.S. Air Force F-15E fighter jet on March 16, to dissuade new recruits living in the ISIS stronghold from joining. [Yeah, USociopaths only want their contractors and team involved (to overthrow Assad) not actual militants.]

Harry Reid Won't Run for Re-Election to Senate in 2016 | 27 March 2015 | Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) won't run for re-election in 2016, ending a storied career in the Senate after three decades and opening up the competition to replace him as the chamber's top Democrat. Mr. Reid, 75 years old, said in a video message posted Friday on Twitter that he would retire at the end of 2016. The Senate's majority leader from 2007 until January of this year, Mr. Reid said his decision came after he had time to think while recovering from an exercise accident over the holidays.

March 27, 2015 by legitgov

Fears of martial law as special ops set to swarm Southwest and operate undetected among civilians who've been deemed HOSTILE in massive military exercise --Operation Jade Helm will see 1,200 service members including Green Berets and SEALs and special forces from the Air Force and Marines in July | 26 March 2015 | Seven Southwestern states will soon be swarmed by 1,200 military special ops personnel as part of a controversial domestic military training in which some of the elite soldiers will operate undetected among civilians. Operation Jade Helm begins in July and will last for eight weeks. Soldiers will operate in and around towns in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado where some of them will drop from planes while carrying weapons loaded with blanks [!] in what military officials have dubbed Realistic Military Training. But with residents of the entire states of Texas and Utah dubbed 'hostile' for the purposes of the exercises, Jade Helm has some concerned the drills are too realistic. [Yes, let us hope the dirt-bags don't *go live,* as they did on 9/11; in Aurora, CO; in Newtown, CT; and, at the Boston Marathon in 2013, etc. --LRP]

March 27, 2015 by legitgov

Police find 'clue' at home of Germanwings' co-pilot Andreas Lubitz | 26 March 2015 | German police say they may have made a "significant" discovery at the home of Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot who deliberately killed 149 passengers and crew by crashing an Airbus A320 in the French Alps. Officers searching Lubitz's flat in Montabaur, on the outskirts of Dusseldorf, said they found something that may offer a "clue" as to what happened to the downed jet. Markus Niesczery from Dusseldorf Police told the Daily Mail: "We have found something which will now be taken for tests. We cannot say what it is at the moment but it may be very significant clue to what has happened."

CIA official who directed hunt for bin Laden is being removed from post

March 27, 2015 by legitgov

CIA official who directed hunt for bin Laden is being removed from post | 25 March 2015 | The head of the CIA's Counter-terrorism Center, who presided over the agency's drone campaign and directed the hunt for Osama bin Laden [who died in 2001], is being removed from his post, officials said, a watershed moment as the CIA turns its focus to a new generation of extremist threats [and false flags]. The move, part of a major reorganization under CIA Director John Brennan, ends a nine-year tenure during which the center was transformed into a paramilitary force that employed armed drones to kill thousands of suspected terrorists and militants but also killed an unknown number of civilians. Because he remains undercover, The Washington Post [aka the Operation Mockingbird flagship] has agreed to withhold his full name.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt bomb Yemen as fears grow of a land invasion

March 27, 2015 by legitgov

Saudi Arabia, Egypt bomb Yemen as fears grow of a land invasion | 27 March 2015 | Saudi jets pounded neighbouring Yemen  and Egyptian warships steamed toward its coast in the start of an Arab-led offensive against Shiite rebels that has become a showdown between the major powers in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies plunged into the Yemen crisis after Shiite insurgents, known as Houthis, pushed from their power base in the north into the south, forcing the country's pro-Saudi, Western-backed president, Abed Rabbu Mansour Hadi, to flee...He resurfaced on Thursday at an air base in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

Co-pilot suspected of deliberately crashing Germanwings jet

March 27, 2015 by legitgov

Co-pilot suspected of deliberately crashing Germanwings jet | 27 March 2015 | A young German co-pilot barricaded himself alone in the cockpit of Germanwings flight 9525 and apparently set it on course to crash into an Alpine mountain, killing all 150 people on board including himself, French prosecutors said on Thursday. They offered no motive for why Andreas Lubitz, 27, would take the controls of the Airbus A320, lock the captain out of the cockpit and deliberately set it veering down from cruising altitude at 3,000 feet per minute. German police searched his home for evidence that might offer some explanation for what was behind Tuesday's crash in the French Alps.

March 27, 2015 by legitgov

Russia warns NATO drills a 'problem' as US attack planes buzz Poland | 26 March 2015 | Four US A-10 Thunderbolt II attack planes are taking part in war games in Poland, as the nation expects about 10,000 NATO forces at drills this year. Moscow says the military build-up at Russia’s borders will have a negative long-term impact. The A-10 aircraft are based in western Poland, at an airbase in Powidz, where they will be involved in a series of training missions until Friday, Polish army spokesman Artur Golawski said, as cited by Reuters. The planes - designed to attack tanks, armored vehicles and other ground targets – arrived at the 33rd Powidz Transport Air Base on Tuesday, according to The Aviationist. They followed two C-130 Hercules military transport aircraft.

The FDNY declared a seven-alarm emergency at the scene - a mixed-occupancy building at 125 Second Avenue.

March 26, 2015 by legitgov

US ally, Saudi Arabia, beheads more people in one day than IS has in toto: Saudi Arabia bombs Yemen, launches coalition op against Houthi rebels | 26 March 2015 | Saudi Arabian forces, joined by nine other countries, have launched a military operation in Yemen against Shiite Houthi rebels, the Saudi ambassador to the US said. The offensive, which started with airstrikes, will also involve "other military assets." According to Ambassador Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir, the military operation in Yemen started at 7 p.m. EST (11 p.m. GMT). US President Obama has authorized the provision of logistical and intelligence support to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)-led military operations in Yemen, the White House said in a statement, confirming that Washington had close communication with Hadi, the Saudis and other GCC states prior to the launch of the military operation.

March 26, 2015 by legitgov

Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) - Investment Chapter | 25 March 2015 | WikiLeaks releases today the "Investment Chapter" from the secret negotiations of the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) agreement...The TPP Investment Chapter, published today, is dated 20 January 2015. The document is classified and supposed to be kept secret for four years after the entry into force of the TPP agreement or, if no agreement is reached, for four years from the close of the negotiations. Julian Assange, WikiLeaks editor said: "The TPP has developed in secret an unaccountable supranational court for multinationals to sue states. This system is a challenge to parliamentary and judicial sovereignty. Similar tribunals have already been shown to chill the adoption of sane environmental protection, public health and public transport policies."

US military to charge Bowe Bergdahl with desertion - official | 25 March 2015 | The Army sergeant who abandoned his post in Afghanistan and was held captive by the Taliban for five years will be court-martialed on charges of desertion and avoiding military service, a U.S. official said Wednesday. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will also be charged with misbehavior before the enemy, said the official, who was not authorized to discuss the announcement on the record and spoke only on condition of anonymity...The U.S. military planned an announcement at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, which is expected to include the location of the court-martial.

Pilot of doomed Flight 4U 9525 jet was 'locked out of cockpit before crash', black box recorder reveals

Pilot of doomed Flight 4U 9525 jet was 'locked out of cockpit before crash', black box recorder reveals | 25 March 2015 | One of the two pilots on board the ill-fated Germanwings plane was locked out of the cockpit minutes before the aircraft crashed into a remote region of the French Alps, it has been reported. Audio taken from the black box voice recorder that was salvaged from the wreckage of the Airbus A320 indicates the pilot left the cockpit and could not re-enter, according to the New York Times. The pilot is heard knocking lightly on the door of the cockpit before trying to 'smash the door down' when his colleague fails to answer, a senior military official told the newspaper. The revelation is the first insight into what took place on the aircraft in the moments before the plane plummetted into the mountainside, killing all 150 people on board.

Netanyahu's Spying Denials Contradicted by Secret NSA Documents

March 26, 2015 by legitgov

Netanyahu's Spying Denials Contradicted by Secret NSA Documents | 25 March 2015 | Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday vehemently denied a Wall Street Journal report, leaked by the Obama White House, that Israel spied on U.S. negotiations with Iran and then fed the intelligence to Congressional Republicans...Israel's claim is not only incredible on its face. It is also squarely contradicted by top secret NSA documents, which state that Israel targets the U.S. government for invasive electronic surveillance, and does so more aggressively and threateningly than almost any other country in the world. Indeed, so concerted and aggressive are Israeli efforts against the U.S. that some key U.S. Government documents -- including the top secret 2013 intelligence budget -- list Israel among the U.S.'s most threatening cyber-adversaries and as a "hostile" foreign intelligence service.

Germanwings Pilot Was Locked Out of Cockpit Before Crash in France --'You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.' | 25 March 2015 |As officials struggled Wednesday to explain why a jet with 150 people on board crashed in relatively clear skies, an investigator said evidence from a cockpit voice recorder indicated one pilot left the cockpit before the plane’s descent and was unable to get back in. A senior military official involved in the investigation described "very smooth, very cool" conversation between the pilots during the early part of the flight from Barcelona to Düsseldorf. Then the audio indicated that one of the pilots left the cockpit and could not re-enter.

March 25, 2015 by legitgov

Trans-Pacific Partnership Seen as Door for Foreign Corporate Suits Against U.S. to Be Heard in Secret World Bank Tribunals | 25 March 2015 | An ambitious 12-nation trade accord pushed by President Obama would allow foreign corporations to sue the United States government for actions that undermine their investment "expectations" and hurts their business, according to a classified document. The Trans-Pacific Partnership -- a cornerstone of Mr. Obama's remaining economic Wall Street agenda -- would grant broad powers to multinational companies operating in North America, South America and Asia. Under the accord, still under negotiation but nearing completion, companies and investors would be empowered to challenge regulations, rules, government actions and court rulings -- federal, state or local -- before tribunals organized under the World Bank or the United Nations.

Bowe Bergdahl faces life in prison after being charged with desertion | 25 March 2015 | The longest-held US prisoner of war of the post-9/11 era will be charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and faces a potential penalty of life in prison. An expected court martial proceeding for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl will initiate a dramatic fall from grace for a soldier whose release after five years in Taliban captivity was a top priority for Barack Obama. Bergdahl's attorney, Eugene Fidell, confirmed to the Guardian that the army charged Bergdahl on Wednesday afternoon. A preliminary hearing in a military court is scheduled for 22 April in San Antonio, Fidell said.

House effort would completely dismantle Patriot Act | 24 March 2015 | A pair of House lawmakers wants to completely repeal the Patriot Act and other legal provisions to dramatically rein in American spying. Reps. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) on Tuesday unveiled their Surveillance State Repeal Act, which would overhaul American spying powers unlike any other effort to reform the National Security Agency. The bill would completely repeal the Patriot Act, the sweeping national security law passed in the days after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as the 2008 FISA Amendments Act, another spying law that the NSA has used to justify collecting vast swaths of people's communications through the Internet.

Boston Show Trial: The Opinion of an Attorney at Law

Boston Show Trial: The Opinion of an Attorney at Law --A former law professor explains the backpacks of the accused were the wrong ones | 24 March 2015 | The Boston bombing has to be the most blatant hoax in recent American history, dwarfing 9/11, Wellstone and Sandy Hook by several orders of magnitude. How much more obvious could it be when we have video with police on bullhorns announcing, "This is a drill! This is a drill!" and The Boston Globe tweeting that a controlled demolition will be set off during the marathon "as part of bomb squad activities" and that it will be set off "in one minute in front of the library", which then proceeds to happen.

Mystery around Jeb Bush's 'unknown' private email account | 24 March 2015 | Jeb Bush used another, previously unreported email address [jeb@gencom.net] when he was governor of Florida, records show -- the newest wrinkle in an evolving debate over public officials' use of private email accounts. The disclosure follows revelations that Hillary Rodham Clinton used a private email address to conduct State Department business when she was secretary of state. Republican Bush and Democrat Clinton are two likely contenders in the 2016 race for the White House. Bush said through a spokeswoman that he was unaware of the account [LOL!], although records showed that people wrote to him there more than 400 times between 1999 and 2004.

Herbert (R) signed a bill making firing squads the option if the state is unable to obtain the drugs needed for a lethal injection...Firing squads were never formally banned in Utah.

Oklahoma Senate panel approves nitrogen gas executions | 24 March 2015 | Legislation that authorizes the use of nitrogen gas to execute Oklahoma death row inmates has been approved by a state Senate committee. The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 8-0 Tuesday for the House-passed measure and sent it to the full Senate for a vote. Under the bill, lethal injection would remain the primary method of execution, but nitrogen gas would be an alternative if lethal injection is declared unconstitutional or if the drugs are unavailable.

9,800 troops to remain in Afghanistan through end of 2015 - White House | 24 March 2015 | The White House said Tuesday the U.S. will keep its current complement of 9,800 troops in Afghanistan through the end of 2015, instead of cutting the number by about half as originally planned. In a joint statement with Afghanistan issued during a day of meetings with [US-installed] Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, the White House said the size of the U.S. troop presence for 2016 will be decided later this year.

France plane crash: Black box found, no indication of terrorism | 24 March 2015 | A Germanwings passenger jet carrying 150 people crashed Tuesday in a snowy, remote section of the French Alps, sounding like an avalanche as it scattered pulverized debris across the mountain. All aboard were feared dead, French officials said. The pilots sent out no distress call and had lost radio contact with its control center, France's aviation authority said, deepening the mystery over the A320's mid-flight crash after an 8-minute surprise steep descent as it flew from Barcelona to Düsseldorf.

Israel Spied on Iran Nuclear Talks With U.S.

Israel Spied on Iran Nuclear Talks With U.S. --Israel's snooping upset White House because information was used to lobby GOP-controlled Congress to try to sink a deal | 23 March 2015 | Soon after the U.S. and other major powers entered negotiations last year to curtail Iran's nuclear program, senior White House officials learned Israel was spying on the closed-door talks. The spying operation was part of a broader campaign by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government to penetrate the negotiations and then help build a case against sabotage the emerging terms of the deal, current and former U.S. officials said. In addition to eavesdropping, Israel acquired information from confidential U.S. briefings, informants and diplomatic contacts in Europe, the officials said.

White House insists Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories must end

White House insists Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories must end | 23 March 2015 | The White House issued a passionate call for eventual Palestinian statehood on Monday as it stepped up criticism of the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, for appearing to question a two-state solution to Middle East peace. "An occupation that has lasted for almost 50 years must end," Barack Obama's chief of staff, Denis McDonough, told a conference of liberal activists in Washington. "Israel cannot maintain military control of another people indefinitely," he added. Despite Netanyahu's efforts to distance himself from pre-election comments that appeared to rule out a Palestinian state, the US administration remains sceptical about his commitment to peace.
