Leave our eggs alone Tories warn Brussels

Leave our eggs alone Tories warn Brussels 27 Jun 2010 An attempt by Brussels to stop British shoppers buying eggs by the dozen will be blocked, ministers promised yesterday. European regulations that aim to ban the sale of a dozen eggs, six bread rolls or four apples go against common sense, they said. The rapid coalition pledge that food will stay on sale in the traditional way follows a move by the European Commission to undermine the use of longstanding and universally understood non-metric measures.

U.S. Charges 11 With Acting as Agents for Russia

U.S. Charges 11 With Acting as Agents for Russia 28 Jun 2010 In what law enforcements officials portrayed as an extraordinary takedown of a Russian espionage network, the Justice Department on Monday announced charges against 11 people accused of living for years in the United States as part of a deep-cover program by S.V.R. -- one of the successors to the Soviet-era K.G.B. The complaints followed a multiyear investigation that culminated with Sunday’s arrest of 10 people in Yonkers; Montclair, New Jersey; Boston; and northern Virginia. The documents detailed what authorities called the "Illegals Program," an S.V.R. effort to plant Russian spies in the United States to gather information and recruit people able to infiltrate government policy-making circles.

"I will do my best to consider every case impartially, modestly, with commitment to principle, and in accordance with the law," Kagan told senators on the first day of the weeklong hearings on her qualifications to serve on the nation's highest court. [Obusha misdirect #1,738: Barack Obama nominated a moderate to Supreme Court to replace a liberal, as he asserts that Elena Kagan will take a bi-partisan approach and 'unite' conservatives and liberals for the common good. Does anyone *actually believe* that Kagan is going to sway John Roberts, Piece-of-Sh*t Scalia or Predator Clarence Thomas? --LRP]

US 'waging psycho war against Iran'

US 'waging psycho war against Iran' 28 Jun 2010 Iran says the US allegation about the military nature of Tehran's nuclear program is "a psychological war" aimed at creating a negative attitude towards the country. On Sunday, CIA director Leon Panetta said he "thinks" Iran has enough low-enriched uranium to produce two atomic weapons within two years, without elaborating on the source of the conjecture. Such remarks are some kind of psychological warfare aimed at creating a negative mentality about Iran's peaceful nuclear program, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said in reaction to Panetta's comments, IRNA reported.

Corruption Suspected in Airlift of Billions in Cash From Kabul

Corruption Suspected in Airlift of Billions in Cash From Kabul 25 Jun 2010 More than $3 billion in cash has been openly flown out of Kabul International Airport in the past three years, a sum so large that U.S. investigators believe top Afghan officials and their associates are sending billions of diverted U.S. aid and logistics dollars and drug money to financial safe havens abroad. The cash--packed into suitcases, piled onto pallets and loaded into airplanes--is declared and legal to move. Officials believe some of the cash, if not most, is siphoned from Western aid projects and U.S., European and NATO contracts to provide security, supplies and reconstruction work for coalition forces in Afghanistan.

The committee's proposal would codify the municipality's planning policy for the entire city. In essence, Jerusalem would uniformly apply its zoning and construction procedures to both halves of the city.

U.S. Troops Face New Threat: Afghanistan's Toxic Sand

U.S. Troops Face New Threat: Afghanistan's Toxic Sand By Spencer Ackerman 28 Jun 2010 The pulverized turf [in Afghanistan], it turns out, contains high levels of manganese, silicon, iron, magnesium, aluminum, chromium and other metals that act as neurotoxic agents when ingested. Combine the country’s frequent sandstorms and the kicked-up dust that results from helicopter travel with troops' nostrils, mouths and pores, and you’ve got an unexpected example of how inhospitable the terrain is for the soon-to-be 98,000 soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines fighting the war.

U.S. Supreme Court strikes down Chicago gun law in key gun rights case

U.S. Supreme Court strikes down Chicago gun law in key gun rights case 28 Jun 2010 The U.S. Supreme Court today found that the constitutional right to bear arms applies to local and state efforts to regulate guns, a ruling that could place limits on some gun control laws across the country. The 5-4 ruling could be particularly important in California, which has some of the strictest gun laws of any state. Legal experts have predicted that a ruling applying the Second Amendment to the states could open the door to a rash of legal challenges to California gun regulations, including the longstanding assault weapons ban.

Bush White House and the CIA, became a major element in a continuing four-year federal investigation into allegations of sanctions violations, illegal exports and bribery. The Obama administration, however, has decided for now not to bring criminal charges against Blackwater, according to a U.S. official close to the case.

Jindal vetoes bill to open oil spill records

Jindal vetoes bill to open oil spill records 25 Jun 2010 Gov. Bobby Jindal [R-Dirtbag] rejected a bill Friday that would have required him to make public and to preserve all his office's documents involving the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. "This governor has opposed transparency for the three years he's been in office, so that's not a surprise. What is sad about all this is it's just another black eye on Louisiana internationally now," said Sen. Robert Adley, R-Benton. Adley slipped the language requiring the governor's oil spill records to be open for public viewing and preserved for at least 10 years into a measure by Rep. Gary Smith, D-Norco.
