Tea Party Politician: 'I'm Not A Witch'

Tea Party Politician: 'I'm Not A Witch' [No, just a sociopath.] 05 Oct 2010 Christine O’Donnell’s appearance could go down as one of the most bizarre moments in US political history. The Republican is fighting to be elected senator for Delaware in November’s mid-term elections. But her campaign has been dogged by comments she made on a late night talk-show in the 1990s when she said she had dabbled in witchcraft. In the new 30-second ad O'Donnell smiles at the camera and speaks over a soft piano soundtrack. "I’m not a witch. I'm nothing you've heard. I'm you," she insists.

The Pentagon's new cyber warriors 05 Oct 2010 Today, U.S. national security planners are proposing that the 21st century's critical infrastructure -- power grids, communications, water utilities, financial networks -- be shielded from cyber marauders and other foes.

An examination by Reuters, including dozens of interviews with military officers, government officials and outside experts, shows that the U.S. military is preparing for digital combat even more extensively than has been made public.

US top court refuses to hear Guantanamo wiretap case

US top court refuses to hear Guantanamo wiretap case 04 Oct 2010 The US Supreme Court on Monday threw out a plea by 23 lawyers for Guantanamo Bay detainees prisoners to be informed whether conservations by their clients had been subjected to wiretaps. The nation's highest court refused to hear the case, without giving a reason, dismissing claims from the detainees lawyers that the possibility that their clients had been subjected to eavesdropping was complicating the cases. Intelligence services were given the authority to carry out wiretaps without first obtaining court approval after the September 11, 2001 attacks. But the existence of such tapes was only brought to light in 2005. [Right, the 'Wh*re York Times' sat on the story until *after* the 2004 'election,' so that Bush would get more votes.]

Stuxnet worm: Private security experts want US to tell them more 04 Oct 2010 America’s government security experts are among the best in the world.
