Five arrested in high-profile cyberattacks

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Five arrested in high-profile cyberattacks 06 Mar 2012 Top members of the computer hacker group "Anonymous" and its offshoots were arrested and charged Tuesday after a wide-ranging investigation used the help of a group leader who was working as a secret government informant. Five of the suspects, considered by investigators among the "most sophisticated hackers in the world," were arrested in the United States and Europe and charged in a Manhattan federal court over their alleged role in high-profile cyberattacks against government agencies and large companies, according to an indictment. A sixth man, Hector Xavier Monsegur, a notorious hacker known as "Sabu," pleaded guilty in August to computer hacking and other crimes.

International hacking group LulzSec brought down by own leader

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

International hacking group LulzSec brought down by own leader --'They caught him and he was secretly arrested and now works for the FBI.' 06 Mar 2012 Law enforcement agents on two continents swooped in on top members of the infamous computer hacking group LulzSec early this morning, and acting largely on evidence gathered by the organization's brazen leader -- who sources say has been secretly working for the government for months -- arrested three and charged two more with conspiracy. The offshoot of the loose network of hackers, Anonymous, believed to have caused billions of dollars in damage to governments, international banks and corporations, was allegedly led by a man FoxNews.com has identified as Hector Xavier Monsegur. After the FBI unmasked Monsegur [working under the Internet alias 'Sabu'] last June, he became a cooperating witness, sources told FoxNews.com. "They caught him and he was secretly arrested and now works for the FBI," a source close to Sabu told FoxNews.com. Monsegur pleaded guilty Aug. 15 to 12 hacking-related charges and information documenting his admissions was unsealed in Southern District Court on Tuesday.

Top Republican publishes full ACTA text for public look-see

March 7, 2012 by legitgov

Top Republican publishes full ACTA text for public look-see --'Secret negotiations not the American way' 06 Mar 1012 Republican congressman Darrell Issa of California has published the full text of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), saying that the public has a right to know what their governments have been hiding from them. "ACTA represents as great a threat to an open Internet as SOPA and PIPA and was drafted with even less transparency and input from digital citizens," Issa said in a statement. Negotiations on ACTA started under President [sic] Bush the Younger, and have been carried on by the current administration. [Of course they have. Obusha hasn't deviated one iota from the previous regime, and in most situations (NDAA, killer drone attacks) has moved farther to the right than Bush. For some reason, he gets a 'pass.' --LRP]

March 6, 2012 by legitgov

LulzSec boss Hector Monsegur was working for us - FBI --Monsegur, aka Sabu, turned by FBI last June --'We're chopping off the head of LulzSec' 07 Mar 2012 Police on two continents swooped on top members of computer hacking group LulzSec early today, and acting largely on evidence gathered by the organisation's leader - who sources say has been secretly working for the government for months - arrested three and charged two more with conspiracy. Charges against four of the five were based on a conspiracy case filed in New York federal court. An indictment charging the suspects, who include two men from Great Britain, two from Ireland and an American from Chicago, is expected to be unsealed today in the Southern District of New York. "This is devastating to the organisation," an FBI official involved with the investigation said. "We're chopping off the head of LulzSec." [We'll see.]

March 6, 2012 by legitgov

Mega barf alert: New DHS Advisory Council to 'make academic community aware of their surroundings' 06 Mar 2012 Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano appointed University of Montana President Royce Engstrom to a newly formed council on Thursday. The Homeland Security Advisory Council is comprised of 19 university and college heads from around the country. The council will advise the department on a wide range of issues -- from how the DHS can better recruit [spies] from campuses to emergency preparedness. "It is an opportunity to have a conversation about how education can be involved in national security," UM Vice President Jim Foley said. A DHS spokesperson said the council is not about monitoring students and professors, but is about "making the academic community aware of their surroundings."

Thirteen French officers captured by Syrian Army 05 Mar 2012 Thirteen French officers have been captured by Syrian forces according to the Lebanon-based Daily Star newspaper, the first mainstream media outlet to report on rumours of Western troops on the ground. The French foreign ministry dismissed the report, however, telling the Daily Telegraph that not a single French soldier is on Syrian soil. But the defence ministry was less categorical, saying it neither confirmed nor denied the claim. A photographer who recently escaped from the besieged Syrian city of Homs also dismissed suggestions French soldiers had intervened to secure his evacuation and that of three other Western reporters.

Kasich turns down federal disaster aid

Kasich turns down federal disaster aid 03 Mar 2012 Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R-Sociopath) said thanks but no thanks to immediate federal disaster relief Saturday, even as governors in Indiana and Kentucky welcomed the help. Kasich did not rule out asking for assistance later, but his decision means tornado-ravaged towns in Ohio will not get federal aid now and are not eligible at this time for potentially millions of dollars in payments and loans. The governor said Ohio can respond to the crisis without federal help and he would not ask federal authorities to declare the region a disaster area.

Well funded Houston homeless service organizations, developers, and city officials are promoting new regulations for dozens of groups like ours that provide food for the homeless in Houston every week. Wednesday March 7, at the 9am session, Houston City Council will consider amending chapter 20 of the code of ordinances, imposing five new regulatory and licensing requirements for those who feed hungry people in Houston. These regulations would bring the work of non-professionals who do homeless service work under city and police purview. [See action list.]

Obama shifts location of G-8 summit from Chicago to Camp David

March 6, 2012 by legitgov

Obama shifts location of G-8 summit from Chicago to Camp David --White House national security spokesman: Security and the possibility of protests were not factors in the decision. [Not much.] 05 Mar 2012 The White House abruptly announced Monday that it had scuttled plans to hold the upcoming G-8 economic summit in Chicago, and would instead host world leaders at the presidential retreat at Camp David in Maryland. It was an unusually late location change for a large and highly scripted international summit and came with little explanation from the White House. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel - the former White House chief of staff who personally lobbied President Barack Obama to hold the summit in Chicago - was informed only hours before the official announcement.

Holder: Constitution doesn't cover terrorists

March 6, 2012 by legitgov

Holder: Constitution doesn't cover terrorists 05 Mar 2012 In his most forceful defense yet of the Obama regime's use of lethal force against U.S. citizens linked to terrorism, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday that the Constitution does not protect U.S. suspects plotting to kill other Americans. Holder said in a speech at the Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago that the government is within its rights to kill citizens who are senior leaders in al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] or affiliate groups who pose an "imminent threat" of attack against the USA and whose capture is "not feasible." [OMG! MSNBC is still obsessed with Rush Limbaugh instead of Obama's assertion he can kill US citizens on a whim. Unbelievable.]

US plans to legally justify targeted killings of Americans 05 Mar 2012 The Obama administration is set to offer legal backing for the targeted killing of American citizens suspected of involvement in terrorist activities against the United States overseas. The underpinning legal principles of the issue will be discussed by US Attorney General Eric Holder at Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago on Monday afternoon. This is while Defense Department lawyer Jeh Johnson claimed earlier in February that the US pursued legitimate military targets overseas and rejected allegations that the US was engaged in assassinations.

Santorum says he'd be well ahead if he had Romney's money

March 5, 2012 by legitgov

Santorum says he'd be well ahead if he had Romney's money 05 Mar 2012 With hours remaining until the polls open in this crucial state, Rick Santorum said Monday no one expected him to last this long into the Republican presidential contest, but that a combination of hard work and a consistent conservative message has allowed him to compete despite being massively outspent by rival Mitt Romney. Santorum said if his resources were equal with Romney's, he would be running away with the race, but that such a scenario was irrelevant because the GOP nominee will not be able to outspend President Obama in the general election. Santorum said his family is sacrificing financially because he gave up lucrative work to run for president.

'One in 5 Britons borrow to buy food' 05 Mar 2012 A new survey has found that one in five Britons are borrowing money to buy food requirements from groceries amid a jump in the costs of living. The survey by consumer group 'Which' showed that 43 percent of consumers feel they can afford to live on their income, while 36 percent admitted to finding things difficult - twice the proportion who were struggling in 2006. One in four said they have had to dip into their savings to buy food or other daily essentials, while 19 percent have gone into debt to do this, according to the survey.

Alan Colmes Blasts Pro-Israel Media Pushing for Iran War

Alan Colmes Blasts Pro-Israel Media Pushing for Iran War By Lori Price, http://www.legitgov.org/ 05 Mar 2012 On Fox News program 'Happening Now,' liberal political commentator and radio host Alan Colmes participated Monday in a discussion on whether or not a 'liberal media' exists. Colmes noted that Dick Cheney daughter Liz Cheney and former George W. Bush recess-appointed UN Ambassador John Bolton were 'all over' the media, a 'new generation' of former Iraq war hawks now pushing for war on Iran. Conservative counterpart Cal Thomas responded that Cheney and Bolton were mere voices in the discourse and not media institutions such as CBS News, and therefore did not share the same media heft. Colmes asserted that rather than a so-called liberal bias, it is an omnipresent pro-Israel media bias that dominates the media landscape. "You have a pro-Israel media out there that supports anything Israel does. It's almost anathema in the media to say anything against what the government of Israel says." [I wonder how many days before he's fired?]

March 5, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. court approves warrantless searches of cell phones 01 Mar 2012 U.S. police can search a cell phone for its number without having a warrant, according to a federal appeals court ruling. Officers in Indiana found a number of cell phones at the scene of a drug bust, and searched each phone for its telephone number... The U.S. Court of Appeal for the 7th Circuit rejected that [warrantless search] argument on Wednesday, finding that the invasion of privacy was so slight that the police's actions did not violate the Fourth Amendment's ban on unreasonable searches. The case gave the court an occasion to examine just how far police can go when it comes to searching electronic gadgets.

Netanyahu praises Obama's AIPAC speech 04 Mar 2012 Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu immediately responded favorably to US President Barack Obama's speech on Sunday, highlighting Obama's remarks about Israel's right to defend itself as it saw fit. "I appreciated the fact that he said Israel must be able to defend itself, by itself, against any threat," Netanyahu told reporters before meeting Canadian Jewish leaders. "I appreciated the fact that President Obama reiterated his position that Iran must not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons, and that all options are on the table," Netanyahu said. "I also appreciated the fact that he made clear that when it comes to a nuclear-armed Iran, containment is simply not an option."

AIPAC turns away 3 journalists from Israel-critical sites 03 Mar 2012 AIPAC turned down requests for coverage of its annual policy conference from at least three web and news sites known for their critical and sometimes hostile coverage of Israel. Patrick Dorton, a spokesman for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, said there were a number of considerations in turning away the journalists, but would only name one -- the volume of applications for coverage. Barring coverage in Washington is rare; Government institutions in Washington are known for accommodating a broad range of journalists, including those adamantly hostile to the government of the day.

Deepwater Oil Drilling Picks Up Again as BP Disaster Fades 04 Mar 2012 Nearly two years after an explosion on an oil platform killed 11 workers and sent millions of gallons of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, deepwater drilling has regained momentum in the gulf and is spreading around the world. After a yearlong drilling moratorium, BP and other oil companies [eco-terrorists] are intensifying their exploration and production in the gulf, which will soon surpass the levels attained before the accident. [Thanks, Obusha!] Gas prices are averaging $3.76 a gallon, while crude oil futures settled at $106.70 a barrel on Friday.

More than half of RAF drone strikes in Afghanistan not reported publicly 03 Mar 2012 More than half of the RAF's drone strikes against Taliban militants in Afghanistan are not reported publicly, a new analysis has revealed. Every week the RAF provides public updates of its operations in Afghanistan, including details about its US-built Reaper drones which are frequently called on to provide cover for troops, monitor the battlefield and hunt down 'Taliban commanders.' But the details of the majority of missions are withheld, despite growing debate about the increasing use of drones and the ethics of relying on unmanned weapon systems.

U.S. Backers of Israel Pressure Obama Over Policy on Iran

U.S. Backers of Israel Pressure Obama Over Policy on Iran 04 Mar 2012 On the eve of a crucial visit to the White House by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, that country's most powerful American advocates are mounting an extraordinary public campaign to pressure President Obama into hardening American policy toward Iran over its nuclear program. From the corridors of Congress to a gathering of nearly 14,000 American Jews and other supporters of Israel here this weekend, Mr. Obama is being buffeted by demands that the United States be more aggressive toward Iran and more forthright in supporting Israel in its own confrontation with Tehran. Despite the position of the Israelis and the pro-Israel lobbying group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the American intelligence agencies continue to say that there is no evidence that Iran has made a final decision to pursue a nuclear weapon. Recent assessments by American spy agencies have reaffirmed intelligence findings in 2007 and 2010 that concluded that Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program. [Right, so it's time for Israel and the US - the scourge of the planet - to abandon *theirs.*]

US government ultimately paid bail for Egypt NGOs --Amount of bail paid for US citizens was set at about $330,000 each 02 Mar 2012 The bail paid for U.S. 'pro-democracy activists' facing charges in Egypt ultimately came from the U.S. government, the State Department said on Friday. Egyptian authorities had accused the workers, including the son of U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, of working for groups receiving illegal foreign funding and had barred them from leaving the country. The case put at risk $1.3 billion in annual U.S. military aid to Egypt, a cash transfer that began flowing after Egypt made peace with Israel in 1979, and it marked the deepest rift in U.S.-Egyptian relations in decades.

Pakistan criticizes US for rights abuses

Pakistan criticizes US for rights abuses 03 Mar 2012 Pakistan's Ambassador to the United Nations Zamir Akram has criticized the United States for committing numerous human rights violations including those against detainees held in the US's Guantanamo Bay prison facility, Press TV reports. The Pakistani UN envoy slammed the US rights violations at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC). His remarks came following a 2011 report by the United Nations Human Rights Council High Commissioner Navi Pillay on US rights violations. "The OIC states (members of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation) share the High Commissioner’s concern about the rights of detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, as well as her disappointment over the failure to close this detention facility not least because most of the prisoners incarcerated there are Muslims and have been kept in a situation of legal limbo for the past 10 years," Akram said at the UNHRC.
