F.B.I., Challenging Use of Seal, Gets Back a Primer on the Law

F.B.I., Challenging Use of Seal, Gets Back a Primer on the Law 02 Aug 2010 The Federal Bureau of Investigation has taken on... its latest adversary: Wikipedia. The bureau wrote a letter in July to the Wikimedia Foundation, the parent organization of Wikipedia, demanding that it take down an image of the F.B.I. seal accompanying an article on the bureau, and threatened litigation:"Failure to comply may result in further legal action. We appreciate your timely attention to this matter." The problem, those at Wikipedia say, is that the law cited in the F.B.I.’s letter is largely about keeping people from flashing fake badges or profiting from the use of the seal, and not about posting images on noncommercial Web sites.

Treasury Sued Over Terror Suspect Lawyers' License

Treasury Sued Over Terror Suspect Lawyers' License 03 Aug 2010 The American Civil Liberties Union said it sued the U.S. Treasury Department and Secretary Timothy Geithner over licensing for lawyers seeking to represent terrorism suspects including those allegedly marked for death by the CIA.

"Targeting individuals for execution who are suspected of crimes but have not been convicted," without due process or disclosed standards, "poses the risk that the government will erroneously target the wrong people," the group said today in a statement announcing the filing.

Ahmadinejad: 9/11 scenario dubious

Ahmadinejad: 9/11 scenario dubious 07 Aug 2010 Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Western media hyped the September 11, 2001 attacks to pave the way for the US-led invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq. "What was the story behind September 11? In the space of five to six days, and with the aid of the media, they swayed public opinion to the point of considering an attack on Afghanistan and Iraq permissible and a right [for themselves]," he said in a televised speech. "Presently, more than 110,000 people [have been killed] in Afghanistan and over one million people have been killed across Iraq. But they will not allow [the figures to be made public]. How? [By] using media and fabricated news," he was quoted by IRIB as saying.

Then, months later, they were just as quietly whisked away before the Supreme Court could give them access to lawyers. The transfer allowed the U.S. to interrogate the detainees in CIA "black sites" for two more years without allowing them to speak with attorneys or human rights observers or challenge their detention in U.S. courts.

Rep. Mike Rogers: Execute WikiLeaks leaker

Rep. Mike Rogers: Execute WikiLeaks leaker 04 Aug 2010 Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Nutjob-Mich.) believes the death penalty should be applied in the case of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning if the accused provider of nearly 80,000 secret intelligence documents to WikiLeaks is found guilty by military tribunal.

Polar bears face melting chemical cocktail

Polar bears face melting chemical cocktail 06 Aug 2010 Polar bears, the icon of the Arctic, are under threat from the twin challenges of climate change and chemicals that are not breaking down in the region's cold waters. Research published in the journal Science of The Total Environment shows the retreat of sea-ice in the Arctic could increase the exposure of species such as polar bears to persistent organic pollutants, which include flame-retardants and substances used to harden plastics. Scientists believe the pollutants, locked in the polar ice for decades, could be released into the ocean as the ice melts due to climate change global warming.
