Sanford, Fla., Police Chief Steps Down Temporarily

March 22, 2012 by legitgov

Sanford, Fla., Police Chief Steps Down Temporarily 22 Mar 2012 The embattled police chief at the center of a fatal neighborhood watch shooting temporarily stepped down Thursday, saying he had become a distraction to the investigation. Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee has been heavily criticized after his officers decided not to arrest George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who shot an unarmed black teen to death on Feb. 26. The shooting has sparked several protests, and city commissioners gave the chief a "no confidence" vote on Wednesday night. [Is George Zimmerman a confidential informant? Maybe that's why the Sanford Police is treating him like one of their own. --LRP]

The NSA Is Building the Country's Biggest Spy Center

March 22, 2012 by legitgov

The NSA Is Building the Country's Biggest Spy Center (Watch What You Say) By James Bamford 15 Mar 2012 Under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances, the blandly named Utah Data Center is being built for the National Security Agency. A project of immense secrecy, it is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world's communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks. The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013... It is, in some measure, the realization of the "total information awareness" program created during the first term of the Bush administration-an effort that was killed by Congress in 2003 after it caused an outcry over its potential for invading Americans' privacy.

Police deploy explosives in French gunman siege 22 Mar 2012 French police fired shots and set off explosives roughly every hour outside an apartment block in southern France on Thursday to try to force out a 24-year-old gunman suspected of killing seven people in the name of al Qaeda [al-CIAduh]. Some 27 hours after 300 police first surrounded the five-storey building in a suburb of the prosperous industrial city of Toulouse, Mohamed Merah, a French citizen of Algerian origin, was refusing to give himself up. Instead Merah boasted to police negotiators that he had brought France to its knees and said his only regret was not having been able to carry out plans for more killings.

Trayvon Martin case: No-confidence vote for Sanford police chief

March 22, 2012 by legitgov

Trayvon Martin case: No-confidence vote for Sanford police chief 22 Mar 2012 In a tense meeting Wednesday that highlighted growing tensions over the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager, local officials in Sanford, Fla., passed a vote of no confidence in the police chief as protests spread north to New York City, where the slain youth's parents joined a Manhattan march demanding the killer's arrest. The no-confidence measure passed 3 to 2 after more than an hour of debate, and though it was not binding, the outcome and the public groans and applause that punctuated the debate underscored the anger pulsing through the Orlando suburb nearly a month after 17-year-old Trayvon Martin's death on Feb. 26.

Organizer Daniel Maree said the rally in Union Square Park, north of Greenwich Village, was intended to "put pressure on whoever it takes to charge George Zimmerman and prosecute him." The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division and the FBI said on Monday that they had opened an investigation into the shooting. A state grand jury was also being convened.

March 22, 2012 by legitgov

Marine facing dismissal over Obama criticism 21 Mar 2012 The Marine Corps on Wednesday notified a sergeant who has been openly critical of President Barack Obama that he is violating Pentagon policy barring troops from political activities and that he faces dismissal. Camp Pendleton Marine Sgt. Gary Stein started a Facebook page called Armed Forces Tea Party to encourage fellow service members to exercise their free speech rights. He declared a few weeks ago that he would not follow the unlawful orders of the commander in chief. Stein stated that he would not follow orders from the president if those orders included detaining U.S. citizens, disarming them or doing anything else that he believes would violate their constitutional rights.

'We have a duty to prepare for the worst': Peter King warns Iran has 'hundreds' of Hezbollah agents in the U.S. 21 Mar 2012 Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah may have hundreds of operatives based in the United States, and Hezbollah - not al-Qaida [al-CIAduh]- poses the greatest terrorist threat to Americans, the Republican chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Peter King, said today. Since September 11 2001, America's counter-terror officials have focused on al-Qaida and home-grown radicalised American extremists, said the New York representative at a hearing of his committee. But, now, the terrorist threat to the United States is shifting. [Right, there's a new country to invade for Exxon Mobil; hence, the 'threat' is shifting. --LRP]

March 21, 2012 by legitgov

Ex-FBI informant on terror traps: 'There is no real hunt. It's fixed' 20 Mar 2012 Craig Monteilh says he did not balk when his FBI handlers gave him the OK to have sex with the Muslim women his undercover operation was targeting. Nor, at the time, did he shy away from recording their pillow talk. "They said, if it would enhance the intelligence, go ahead and have sex. So I did," Monteilh told the Guardian as he described his year as a confidential FBI informant sent on a secret mission to infiltrate southern Californian mosques. It is an astonishing admission that goes that goes to the heart of the intelligence surveillance of Muslim communities in America in the years after 9/11.

March 21, 2012 by legitgov

US Mercenary 'Took Part' in Gaddafi Killing; Sent to Assist Syrian opposition 19 Mar 2012 US government officials requested that an American private security firm contact Syrian opposition figures in Turkey to see "how they can help in regime change," the CEO of one of these firms told Stratfor in a company email obtained by WikiLeaks and Al-Akhbar. James F. Smith, former director of Blackwater, is currently the Chief Executive of SCG International, a private security firm with experience in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya. In what appears to be his first email to Stratfor, Smith stated that his "background is CIA” and his company is comprised of "former DOD [Department of Defense], CIA and former law enforcement personnel."

Printed Ballots Were Too Wide for Scanners in Some Illinois Precincts 20 Mar 2012 Some of the printed ballots in 25 of 110 Illinois jurisdictions were slightly too wide to fit into the optical scanners and will have to be trimmed or hand counted, officials said Tuesday afternoon. The ballot problem threatened to slow the results from some parts of the state Tuesday night. Officials quickly began noticing on Tuesday that some of the ballots filled out by voters did not fit into the scanner - they were too wide, according to Ken Menzel, the deputy general counsel for the Illinois elections board. Mr. Menzel said it was unclear how many ballots were affected... He said it appeared that the ballots were cut unevenly by the vendors who had printed them. [LOL. Gee, I wonder who hired the vendors?]

Military struggles to regulate information on Afghanistan suspect

Military struggles to regulate information on Afghanistan suspect 19 Mar 2012 For nearly a week, the military kept a lid of secrecy over the Army soldier from Joint Base Lewis-McChord suspected of killing 16 Afghan villagers. At the base south of Tacoma, officials cautioned Army families in his unit to stay quiet and admonished the press to respect their privacy. At the Pentagon, senior officials leaked selected details of the soldier's background even as they removed links to public-affairs articles that detailed some of his experiences in Iraq and his involvement in a training exercise in Afghanistan. But as the week wore on, the Defense Department began to lose control of the flow of information about the suspect...

Army threatens to fire whistleblower for talking to McClatchy 19 Mar 2012 The military's embattled crime lab is trying to fire an outspoken whistleblower who's spotlighted its problems. Earlier this month, the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory warned its firearms branch chief, Donald Mikko, in a memo of its plans to fire him, in part for talking to a McClatchy reporter. As part of an internal investigation, Mikko was interrogated for about four hours and questioned about his contacts with McClatchy, according to his attorney Peter Lown. The Army Criminal Investigation Command, which oversees the lab, launched the inquiry after McClatchy published a story late last year about the lab losing evidence.

Job seekers getting asked for Facebook passwords

Job seekers getting asked for Facebook passwords 20 Mar 2012 In their efforts to vet applicants, some companies and government agencies are going beyond merely glancing at a person's social networking profiles and instead asking to log in as the user to have a look around. "It's akin to requiring someone's house keys," said Orin Kerr, a George Washington University law professor and former federal prosecutor who calls it "an egregious privacy violation." Questions have been raised about the legality of the practice, which is also the focus of proposed legislation in Illinois and Maryland that would forbid public agencies from asking for access to social networks.

Missouri National Guard sergeant tied to Nazism is fired --'Although he lost his state position, Wooten is still a National Guard member.' 18 Mar 2012 Former co-workers say Nathan Wooten is a self-proclaimed neo-Nazi who had a portrait of Adolf Hitler in his living room, tried to recruit others to the cause and named his son after a notorious leader of the German SS. Until last week, Wooten also was a Missouri National Guard sergeant whose full-time state job was serving as part of a state military honor guard that pays last respects at the funerals of Missouri veterans, many of whom fought against Hitler in World War II. On Friday, as the Post-Dispatch was about to publish a story about the state's lack of action on co-workers' complaints filed against Wooten nearly a year ago, a Missouri National Guard spokeswoman notified the newspaper that Wooten had been fired from his state job.
