Bullet hole found in Arizona lawmaker's office

Bullet hole found in Arizona lawmaker's office 29 Jul 2010 Authorities say a bullet apparently was fired into an office of a Democratic congressman who has been an outspoken opponent of the state's immigration law. The apparent bullet hole was found in a window Thursday in the Yuma office of Rep. Raul Grijalva. The discovery came on the same day that vocal immigration protests were held in Arizona. A judge a day earlier delayed most of the controversial new law from taking effect. Yuma police are investigating to determine whether the bullet discovery is related to immigration.

Gates Assails WikiLeaks Over Release of Reports

Gates Assails WikiLeaks Over Release of Reports --Justice Dept. lawyers are exploring whether Mr. Assange and WikiLeaks could be charged with inducing, or conspiring in, violations of the 1917 Espionage Act. 30 Jul 2010 Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates on Thursday denounced the disclosure this week of 75,000 classified documents about the Afghanistan war by the Web site WikiLeaks, asserting that the security breach had endangered lives and damaged the ability of others to trust the United States government to protect their secrets. The military has charged an intelligence analyst, Pfc. Bradley Manning, with downloading large amounts of classified information from a computer at a base in Iraq and sending it to WikiLeaks...

He pledged a "thorough, aggressive investigation" to identify the leakers and said that steps were being taken to restrict access to classified documents in future. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the US military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the leakers "might already have on their hands the blood of some young soldier or that of an Afghan family". ['Hello, Pot? This is Kettle...' No one on *God's green earth* has more blood on their hands than the war criminals, sociopaths and terrorists mismanaging these illegal occupations for opium and oil. And the whole world knows it. --LRP]

Audit: Blackwater may have overcharged for Iraq work

The quintessential *Duh:* Audit: Blackwater may have overcharged for Iraq work 29 Jul 2010 Lax oversight by the State Department appears to have allowed Blackwater to overcharge a 'nonprofit' organization for security services in Iraq, according to a government audit released today.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio plans 'sweep' of immigrant neighborhoods. 30 Jul 2010 More than a dozen people protesting Arizona's hard-line stance against illegal immigrants were arrested Thursday, demonstrating that a ruling by a federal judge blocking most of the state's controversial new immigration law will not quell the furious debate over the issue here.

'It's quite an invasive data collection system.'

Bush administration, and establishes policy that guides all the FBI's domestic operations, including counterterrorism, counterintelligence, crime and cyber crime.

Karzai orders Wikileaks investigation [LOL!] 29 Jul 2010 Afghan President Hamid Karzai has ordered an investigation into revelations made by the whistleblower website Wikileaks. The Afghan president made the remarks at a press conference in the capital city of Kabul on Thursday.

Karzai described the release of the Afghans' names in the documents released by Wikileaks as irresponsible, saying the move has endangered their security. [So does your funding both sides along with your druglord/CIA-owned brother.

W.House proposal would grant FBI access to Internet activity records without court order

W.House proposal would grant FBI access to Internet activity records without court order 29 Jul 2010 The Obama administration is seeking to make it easier for the FBI to compel companies to turn over records of an individual's Internet activity without a court order if agents deem the information relevant to a terrorism or intelligence investigation. The administration wants to add four words -- "electronic communication transactional records" -- to a list of items that the law says the FBI may demand without a judge's approval. Government lawyers say this category of information includes the addresses to which an Internet user sends e-mail; the times and dates e-mail was sent and received; and possibly a user's browser history. It does not include, the lawyers say, the "content" of e-mail or other Internet communication.

Aetna's Earnings Up 42 Percent

Aetna's Earnings Up 42 Percent 27 Jul 2010 Aetna reported earnings up 42 percent for the second quarter compared with last year, despite a 2 percent drop in revenue partly related to businesses having fewer workers and therefore spending less on health insurance. The Hartford-based health insurer reported net income of $491 million for the second quarter, or $1.14 per diluted share, compared with $362.8 million, or 77 cents per diluted share, for the same quarter last year. The company benefitted from lower medical-benefit ratios, also called medical-loss ratio, which is a percentage of every dollar collected in premiums that is spent on medical costs.

Cameron calls Gaza 'prison camp'

Cameron calls Gaza 'prison camp' 27 Jul 2010 British Prime Minister David Cameron called Gaza a "prison camp" on Tuesday, a blunt description from a major Western leader about the besieged Palestinian territory. Cameron made the remarks in the Turkish capital of Ankara, which he was visiting to forge a new relationship with Turkey and show his support for Turkish membership in the European Union. "Let me also be clear that the situation in Gaza has to change. Humanitarian goods and people must flow in both directions.

Leaked files indicate U.S. pays Afghan media to run friendly stories

Leaked files indicate U.S. pays Afghan media to run friendly stories --Other reports show U.S. military personnel apparently referring to Afghan reporters as 'our journalists' and directing them in how to do their jobs. 27 Jul 2010 Buried among the 92,000 classified documents released Sunday by WikiLeaks is some intriguing evidence that the U.S. military in Afghanistan has adopted a PR strategy that got it into trouble in Iraq: paying local media outlets to run friendly stories.

A return to silence in a post-WikiLeaks world?

A return to silence in a post-WikiLeaks world? --Some lawmakers on Capitol Hill worry that the leaking incident will give the nation's 16 intelligence agencies an excuse to go back to old ways of holding back some information as "too sensitive" to be shared. 28 Jul 2010 Dismayed by the massive war-documents leak, intelligence experts are raising alarms that post-Sept. 11 changes promoting information sharing have made it too easy to lose control of the nation's secrets. Some intelligence veterans say it's time to rethink how widely classified material is shared at lower levels or, at the very least, to step up monitoring of the people who are given access. Both intelligence officials and outside experts suggested that agency chiefs may push to limit access to electronic "portals" that have provided growing data access to intelligence officers, diplomats and troops around the world.
