Civil liberties groups sued the U.S. government on behalf of Aulaqi's father, arguing that the CIA and the Joint Special Operations Command's placement of Aulaqi on a capture-or-kill list of suspected terrorists -- outside a war zone and absent an imminent threat -- amounted to an extrajudicial execution order against a U.S. citizen.

Pentagon destroyed 10,000 copies of army officer's book 26 Sep 2010 The Pentagon has admitted buying up and destroying 10,000 copies of an insider's account of life in Afghanistan by an army intelligence officer.

Kuper said the boat, which set sail from northern Cyprus flying a British flag, won't resist if Israeli authorities try to stop it.

Censorship of the Internet Takes Center Stage in "Online Infringement" Bill

Censorship of the Internet Takes Center Stage in "Online Infringement" Bill By Richard Esguerra 21 Sep 2010 Senator Patrick Leahy yesterday introduced the "Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act" (COICA). This flawed bill would allow the Attorney General and the Department of Justice to break the Internet one domain at a time -- by requiring domain registrars/registries, ISPs, DNS providers, and others to block Internet users from reaching certain websites. The bill would also create two Internet blacklists. The first is a list of all the websites hit with a censorship court order from the Attorney General. The second, more worrying, blacklist is a list of domain names that the Department of Justice determines -- without judicial review -- are "dedicated to infringing activities."

Call for 'Gaza style' inquiry into alleged war crimes in Afghanistan --Former UN official demands investigation into coalition link to deaths revealed by WikiLeaks 26 Sep 2010 A United Nations investigation into alleged war crimes in Afghanistan should be launched to identify and prosecute individuals responsible, says a former top-ranking UN official on extrajudicial killings. Philip Alston called for the UN Human Rights Council to investigate the "conduct of the war" in Afghanistan amid rising concern over the level of civilian casualties caused by coalition forces and by the Taliban. It should be modelled, he said, on the inquiry into Israeli military operations in the Gaza Strip.

Ahmadinejad calls for 9/11 tribunal

Ahmadinejad calls for 9/11 tribunal 25 Sep 2010 Iran's president describes as 'naive' the US government's response to his earlier comments about the 9/11 attacks, calling for a special tribunal to investigate the incident. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had questioned the official account of the September 11 attacks on US soil, suggesting that US officials were involved in the matter. "It is necessary to re-listen to the black box of [the plane used in] September 11 attacks," Ahmadinejad said. [*Really.* Also, examine the cell phone call transcripts made aboard the 'hijacked' planes, when such technology wasn't even available in 2001. 'Mom? This is Mark Brigham.' A real investigation could have been wrapped-up in the first forty minutes of a run-of-the-mill 'NCIS' or a half-hour on 'Numb3rs,' even *after* the Writers' Strike. --LRP]

Stuxnet worm is the 'work of a national government agency'

Stuxnet worm is the 'work of a national government agency' --Malware believed to be targeting Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant may have been created by Israeli hackers 24 Sep 2010 A computer worm which targets industrial and factory systems is almost certainly the work of a national government agency, security experts told the Guardian -- but warn that it will be near-impossible to identify the culprit. The "Stuxnet" computer worm, which has been described as one of the "most refined pieces of malware ever discovered", has been most active in Iran, says the security company Symantec -- leading some experts to conjecture that the likely target of the virus is the controversial Bushehr nuclear power plant, and that it was created by Israeli hackers.
