Under section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000, officers can stop and search anyone in a designated area without having to show reasonable suspicion. Interim operational guidelines to be issued to the police say that in future section 44 powers will be used only to search vehicles, and officers will have to have grounds for suspecting they are being used in connection with terrorism.

National Security Agency Plans $100M 'Perfect Citizen' Domestic Surveillance Program

National Security Agency Plans $100M 'Perfect Citizen' Domestic Surveillance Program 08 Jul 2010 The federal government is launching an expansive program dubbed "Perfect Citizen" to detect cyber assaults on private companies and government agencies running such critical infrastructure as the electricity grid and nuclear-power plants, according to people familiar with the program. The surveillance by the National Security Agency, the government's chief eavesdropping agency, would rely on a set of sensors deployed in computer networks for critical infrastructure that would be triggered by unusual activity suggesting an impending cyber attack, though it wouldn't persistently monitor the whole system, these people said.

Six years in jail, no charge: war on terror's forgotten victim speaks

Six years in jail, no charge: war on terror's forgotten victim speaks 08 Jul 2010 Babar Ahmad, 35, is the longest-serving prisoner held without charge or trial in the UK. In his first media interview since his arrest on a US extradition warrant in 2004, Mr Ahmad tells Robert Verkaik that he is the forgotten victim of the 'war on terror'. In March 2009, he was awarded £60,000 in compensation after an admission by the UK's anti-terrorist police that they subjected him to 'grave abuse, tantamount to torture' during his first arrest in December 2003. Corresponding via email from a secure isolation unit at Long Lartin prison, he calls on the Government to charge him or release him.

'US will attack Iran if it must'

Triumvirate of sociopaths speak: 'US will attack Iran if it must' 07 Jul 2010 There is wide support in Congress for using all means to keep Iran from becoming a nuclear power, "through diplomatic and economic sanctions if we possibly can, through military actions if we must," visiting US Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Insane-CT) said Wednesday in Jerusalem. Lieberman, flanked at a Jerusalem press conference by his senate colleagues John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), used very tough language, saying the words "military action" in regards to stopping Iran’s nuclear program.

Owner of Exploded Rig Exploits Offshore Status

Owner of Exploded Rig Exploits Offshore Status 08 Jul 2010 Transocean is the world’s largest offshore drilling company, but until its Deepwater Horizon rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in April, few Americans outside the energy business had heard of it. It is well known, however, in a number of other countries -- for testing local laws and regulations. Human rights advocates have called for an investigation into Transocean’s recent dealings in Myanmar... In Norway, Transocean is the subject of a criminal investigation into possible tax fraud. And in the United States, a federal bankruptcy judge recently found that one of Transocean’s merger partners had repeatedly abused the legal system to try to avoid potential liability in a pollution case in Louisiana. Transocean is also the target of tax inquiries in the United States and Brazil.

Ex-Congressman Accused of Ties to Terrorism Pleads Guilty to Obstruction

Ex-Congressman Accused of Ties to Terrorism Pleads Guilty to Obstruction 07 Jul 2010 A former Michigan Republican congressman accused of accepting stolen funds to lobby on behalf of a charity with alleged ties to terrorism pleaded guilty Wednesday to two charges including obstruction of justice, but prosecutors said more serious charges would likely be dropped. Former Rep. Mark Deli Siljander, who served in Congress from 1981 until 1987 and as a United Nations delegate for a year, pleaded guilty in federal court in Kansas City to obstruction and acting as an unregistered foreign agent. Charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering will likely be dismissed under the terms of Siljander's plea deal, said Don Ledford, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office of the Western District of Missouri.

Corruption in Afghanistan - US Cuts Aid After Millions Siphoned Off to Dubai

Corruption in Afghanistan - US Cuts Aid After Millions Siphoned Off to Dubai 05 Jul 2010 Billions of dollars are being secreted out of Kabul to help well-connected Afghans buy luxury villas in Dubai. Amid concerns that the money could be the result of corruption, American politicians have temporarily cut off aid to the Afghan government. According to some estimates, since 2007, at least $3 billion (€2.4 billion) in cash has left the Afghanistan by plane in boxes and suitcases. The preferred destination for these funds is Dubai, the tax haven in the Persian Gulf.

US airline 'loses Netanyahu bodyguard guns'

US airline 'loses Netanyahu bodyguard guns' 07 Jul 2010 Not even officers from Israeli security service Shin Bet can escape the scourge of lost luggage it seems. A bag belonging to agents travelling with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was mistakenly put on a flight from New York to Los Angeles, not to Washington. Alarmingly the bag contained four 9mm Glock handguns, which are now missing.

Saving the brown pelican

Saving the brown pelican --The creatures that fuel ecology -- even freedom -- get slow death by oil. A plucky few get a chance By Ken Hoffman 04 Jul 2010 Poisoned by petroleum --Oil begins its slow and painful death sentence on birds. Oil robs the birds of their natural waterproofing. A pelican's body temperature is between 103 and 105 degrees. So even in the sweltering heat and humidity of summer in the bayou, a pelican will get cold. It becomes disoriented and weak. Pelicans are constantly preening and cleaning their feathers, so oil gets into their stomachs and they get sick. If they're covered heavily in oil, they become immobile and starve to death. Or they die of hypothermia.

Birds Flushed, Cooked, Squashed During Gulf Oil Cleanup

Birds Flushed, Cooked, Squashed During Gulf Oil Cleanup --Gulf Oil Cleanup Crews Trample Nesting Birds 07 Jul 2010 Standing on a white-sand beach at Florida's Gulf Islands National Seashore Thursday, blotchy stains from the Gulf oil spill could be seen creeping past the red-lettered "keep out" signs meant to protect nesting shorebirds. And, according to conservationists, some well-meaning cleanup crews who unknowingly walk into nesting habitat may be doing more harm than the oil itself, experts say... With so many people working so close to breeding grounds, frightened adult birds are abandoning their nests, and adults and chicks are being inadvertently trampled. (See: 'Gulf Oil Spill Pictures: Ten Animals at Risk.') .

CRU climate scientists 'did not withhold data'

CRU climate scientists 'did not withhold data' --The review found nothing in the e-mails to undermine Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports. 07 Jul 2010 Climate scientists at a top UK research unit have emerged from an inquiry with their reputations for honesty intact but with a lack of openness criticised. The Independent Climate Change Email Review was set up by the University of East Anglia (UEA) after more than 1,000 e-mails were hacked from its servers. Climate "sceptics" [ExxonMobil wh*res] claimed the e-mails showed that UEA scientists manipulated and suppressed key climate data. But these accusations are largely dismissed by the report.

TSA probing harassment allegations

TSA probing harassment allegations 07 Jul 2010 Homeland Security Department investigators plan to visit Transportation Security Administration workers in Orlando and Tampa next week as part of an ongoing investigation into allegations of harassment against gay, lesbian and African American workers there, according to e-mails obtained by The Federal Eye. The department's Office of Inspector General launched an investigation shortly after CNN reported in January about managers at the Orlando field office of the Federal Air Marshals Service who used a crew assignment board resembling the "Jeopardy!" game show to ridicule and keep score on women, gays and minorities.

UK troops forced to pull out: Taliban

UK troops forced to pull out: Taliban 07 Jul 2010 The reclusive leader of the Taliban has taken credit for a plan by British troops to pull out from a troubled southern district in Afghanistan, saying they were forced to withdraw by the militants. A statement attributed to Mullah Mohammad Omar said Wednesday that British forces were pulling out from the violence-wracked Sangin district of Afghanistan's Helmand Province due to pressure from militant attacks. "This is the start of the British forces' defeat in Afghanistan," a Taliban spokesman, Yousuf Ahmadi, quoted Mullah Omar as saying. "We defeated them in Sangin. They'll be defeated in the rest of the country soon," he added.

Terrorism policy flaws 'increased risk of attacks', says former police chief

Terrorism policy flaws 'increased risk of attacks', says former police chief 07 Jul 2010 Britain's fight against terrorism has been a disaster, because its "flawed, neo-conservative" direction alienated Muslims and increased the chances of terrorist attacks, a former leading counter-terrorism officer has told the Guardian. Speaking to mark today's fifth anniversary of the 7 July attacks [an inside job, six ways to Sunday] in London, Dr Robert Lambert said the atrocity had led the Labour government to launch not just the publicly declared battle against al-Qaida, but a much wider counter-subversive campaign that targeted non-violent Muslims and branded them as supporters of violence.

Gulf of Mexico awash with 27,000 abandoned wells

Gulf of Mexico awash with 27,000 abandoned wells - report 07 Jul 2010 More than 27,000 abandoned oil and gas wells lurk in the hard rock beneath the Gulf of Mexico, an environmental minefield that has been ignored for decades. No one - not industry, not government - is checking to see if they are leaking, an Associated Press investigation shows. The oldest of these wells were abandoned in the late 1940s, raising the prospect that many deteriorating sealing jobs are already failing.

US-led attack kills 6 Afghan soldiers

US-led attack kills 6 Afghan soldiers 07 Jul 2010 Six Afghan soldiers have been killed when their post was attacked by a US-led aircraft in central Afghanistan, police sources have announced. The air strike that occurred late Tuesday was originally aimed at Taliban militants in Ghazni, a province in south-central Afghanistan, Nawruz Ali Mohamoodzada, a provincial police official said Wednesday, describing the attack as "friendly fire," AFP reported.

U.S. Launches 'Stamping Out Pandemic and Avian Influenza' Program

U.S. Launches 'Stamping Out Pandemic and Avian Influenza' Program 07 Jul 2010 The STOP AI (Stamping Out Pandemic and Avian Influenza) project, funded by the United States Government through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) [an overfunded terrorist group whose agents, for example, trained Latin American police on the use of torture in the 1960s], launched a Cleaning and Disinfection (C&D) programme here on Tuesday. The USAID, through the STOP AI initiative, collaborated with the Sreepur Municipality and the market committee of Gazipur to develop a market improvement plan to prevent the spread of highly pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI). [The *actual* goal is to get an avian pandemic party started, so the pharmaterroists can make a(nother) *killing.* -LRP]

Censorship and cover-up in the Gulf oil disaster

Censorship and cover-up in the Gulf oil disaster By Tom Eley 06 July 2010 The Obama administration has intensified its cover-up of the BP oil disaster. On July 1 it issued an order barring the public and the news media from coming within 65 feet of clean-up operations without permission from the Coast Guard. The transparent aim of the order, which purports to protect the safety of clean-up workers, is to prevent the population from viewing the devastation wrought by the BP oil blowout... The real concern the White House has is that clean-up workers might reveal something about the dangerous conditions under which they work and the real scale of the environmental devastation--defying a gag order imposed by BP.

General Petraeus takes command as killing in Afghanistan escalates

General Petraeus takes command as killing in Afghanistan escalates By Bill Van Auken 06 Jul 2010 In assuming formal command of the US-led war in Afghanistan over the weekend, Gen. David Petraeus reiterated his indications that the military will alter its rules of engagement, allowing a more unrestricted use of air strikes and artillery bombardments in support of American ground troops. Such a shift will inevitably mean a major escalation in the slaughter of Afghan civilians. The killing of civilians by foreign occupation troops has fueled the insurgency in Afghanistan, which is now stronger than at any time since the US intervened in the country nearly nine years ago.

HSBC offshore accounts under investigation by US tax authorities

HSBC offshore accounts under investigation by US tax authorities --The move has sparked speculation that HSBC has handed over clients' personal information to the authorities. 06 Jul 2010 The US government has begun a criminal investigation into whether clients of HSBC are evading tax by putting money in undeclared bank accounts in Singapore and India, widening a crackdown on offshore secrecy that began with a successful prosecution of Switzerland's UBS. A senior official at the US department of justice, Kevin Downing, has written to certain US residents with accounts at HSBC asking for details of their offshore holdings.

Postal Service Seeks 2-Cent Rise in First-Class Mail

Postal Service Seeks 2-Cent Rise in First-Class Mail 06 Jul 2010 The U.S. Postal Service proposed raising the price of first-class stamps by 2 cents, to 46 cents, while rates for periodicals increase 8 percent and parcels 23 percent to narrow a deficit projected at $7 billion this year. The increases would generate $2.3 billion in the first nine months of 2011, the service said today in a statement. Increases, which must be reviewed by Postal Regulatory Commission, would take effect Jan. 2.
