Taliban capture key city in Afghanistan

Taliban capture key city in Afghanistan 01 Nov 2010 Taliban capture key city in Afghanistan 01 Nov 2010 The Taliban have gained control of the city of Khogyani in the Ghazni province in central Afghanistan, a Taliban spokesman says. "We were in contact with several members of the city's police force prior to the attack," a Press TV correspondent quoted Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid as saying on Monday. According to Mujahid, the Taliban seized all the weapons and ammunition from the city's local police station and then they set the building on fire. "At least 16 police officers joined Taliban forces after the takeover," he went on to say. [Now, are these the same police officers trained by US contractors -- at enormous taxpayer expense -- even though US citizens have to pay an extra 75 dollars or firefighters will watch while their house burns to the ground in Kentucky? Karma... it truly is a  b*tch. --LRP]

Altered documents allow Carroll's firm into city contract program

Altered documents allow Carroll's firm into city contract program 29 Oct 2010 Altered documents filed with Jacksonville City Hall in 2006 helped Jennifer Carroll’s consulting firm appear eligible for a city program that annually gives out tens of millions of dollars in city contracts to small businesses, a Florida Times-Union investigation has found. Carroll is the running mate of Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott... When the city reviewed Carroll’s application for the Jacksonville Small and Emerging Business program, it included lease documents that were altered to show her firm was eligible because it had a Duval County address. That address belonged to an empty office space.

FBI Documents on Senator Paul Wellstone Raise Questions about His Death 8 Years Ago (Democracy Now!) 29 Oct 2010 Minnesota Public Radio has obtained the FBI record of the late Senator Paul Wellstone of Minnesota, who died in a plane crash eight years ago this week. The records show the FBI first tracked Wellstone in 1970 after he was arrested at an anti-Vietnam War protest. The records might also raise new questions about the plane crash that killed Wellstone, his wife, his daughter and three staffers. The National Transportation Safety Board determined the crash was caused by pilot error, but the FBI documents reveal for the first time that specific criminal leads were pursued by investigators.

Drowning in Campaign Cash

Drowning in Campaign Cash (The New York Times) 30 Oct 2010 What is clear is that the new world of unlimited spending, both open and secret, confers huge benefits on wealthy individuals, corporations and unions. In a striking example, reported by ABC News last week, Terry Forcht, a prominent Kentucky banker and nursing home executive, helped pay for a series of attack ads against Attorney General Jack Conway, the Democratic Senate candidate. Mr. Conway is prosecuting one of Mr. Forcht’s nursing homes for allegedly covering up sexual abuse. Mr. Forcht has directly raised at least $21,000 for Mr. Conway’s Republican opponent, Rand Paul. He serves as the banker for American Crossroads, the shadowy group of nonprofits organized by Karl Rove that has spent nearly $30 million to defeat Democrats and more than $1 million to defeat Mr. Conway.

Cargo plane bomb plot: al-Qaeda terrorists 'threatened another Lockerbie'

Cargo plane bomb plot: al-Qaeda terrorists 'threatened another Lockerbie' 31 Oct 2010 The al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] parcel bomb plot was designed to blow up passenger jets in a Lockerbie-style terrorist outrage, investigators believe. Both bombs found last week had been transported in the hold of passenger flights, suggesting that the terrorists were targeting tourists and other travellers, rather than simply trying to bring down cargo planes, as had previously been thought. A device found at East Midlands airport on Friday had left Yemen on a passenger aircraft, The Daily Telegraph has learnt, before it was switched to a UPS cargo plane. The second device, found in Dubai, was carried on two Qatar Airways passenger flights before it was intercepted.

The ink bomb was virtually undetectable

The ink bomb was virtually undetectable 31 Oct 2010 The ink cartridge bomb was so well-hidden that British police failed to find it when they first examined a consignment sent from Yemen Langley. Sources say the difficulty in finding the bomb reflects its sophistication, hidden in a desk top printer and carefully concealed to make it look as though it was part of the machinery... The device used a high explosive called Pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), one of the main ingredients of the plastic explosive Semtex.

Mail bomb suspect 'had ID stolen'

Mail bomb suspect 'had ID stolen' 31 Oct 2010 The young Yemeni woman arrested on suspicion of mailing powerful bombs to US synagogues has been released on bail as Yemeni officials said authorities believed her identity had been stolen.

But after she was arrested, the shipping agent said she wasn't the one who signed the shipping documents, a Yemeni official said.

Mr President we've lost control of FIFTY nuclear warheads

Mr President we've lost control of FIFTY nuclear warheads: Obama told how his arsenal was hit by 45-minute computer glitch 28 Oct 2010 It was one of the most nerve-racking 45-minute periods U.S. military chiefs have ever known. Pentagon chiefs were stunned to discover that a U.S. air force base had lost control of 50 nuclear, inter-continental missiles. A power failure meant that one-ninth of America’s nuclear arsenal went offline for three-quarters of an hour, it emerged yesterday. As multiple error codes appeared on the computer control system at FE Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming, the Minuteman III missiles went into 'LF Down' status, which meant that officers were unable to communicate with them.

Suspicious package to U.S. not from Yemen: Yemenia Air Cargo Director [It was probably from Langley, the point of origin for most suspicious crap.] 29 Oct 2010 Mohammed al-Shaibah, Air Cargo Director for Yemenia Airways said to Yemen Post, "No UPS cargo plane left Yemeni lands over the land 48 hours. These accusations are false and baseless." He added, "No UPS or DHL cargo packages heading to Chicago through Yemen took place in the last 48 hours as well." "All packages are checked very carefully in Yemen, and there is no evidence to prove that this package came through Yemen."

UAE rejects US claims on Flight 201

UAE rejects US claims on Flight 201 30 Oct 2010 The United Arab Emirates' Civil Aviation Authority has rejected claims that a US-bound Emirates' flight from Dubai contained "suspicious" parcels from Yemen. Fighter jets were scrambled on Friday to accompany an Emirates plane into New York's JFK airport after a security alert, US media reported. Emirati authorities, however, said flight 201 carried no 'suspicious' cargo from Yemen as claimed by US-Canadian military agency NORAD.

Freed, thanks to Mail readers - Mely the chained orangutan

Freed, thanks to Mail readers - Mely the chained orangutan 29 Oct 2010 After 15 years in ­shackles, perhaps it was inevitable that when the moment came for rescuers to free Mely the orangutan, no one could find the key to unlock her padlock and chain. Yet she stood upright on her thin, wasted legs as the team from the British charity arrived by boat at the spot where she had been shackled in Kalimantan, Borneo. Mely had been held there in unspeakably cruel conditions by a fisherman who shot her mother as a 'trophy'.

Tell Tom Corbett: Don't try to suppress the vote in PA

Quick action! Tell Tom Corbett: Don't try to suppress the vote in PA (Keystone Progress) 29 Oct 2010 As Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Corbett (R-Sociopath) is supposed to protect our right to vote. Instead, he said he wants to make sure that voters don't turn out to vote on Tuesday. Speaking of Philadelphia voters he said, "we want to make sure that they don't get 50%." He urged his supporters, "Keep that down." I know it's hard to believe that a sitting attorney general would tell people to make sure that citizens don't vote, but that's exactly what he said. Join us in demanding that Tom Corbett apologize to the people of Pennsylvania, especially Philadelphia. The Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania should be encouraging citizens to vote, and protecting our rights--not trying to suppress the vote.
