January 12, 2012 by legitgov

'While there is no evidence that sustained human-to-human transmission is occurring, all influenza viruses have the capacity to change and it's possible that this virus may become widespread,' the CDC explained through their website.

Lawsuit demands that Obama administration release Guantanamo torture tapes By Tom Carter 12 Jan 2012 A lawsuit filed Monday by lawyers for the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) in federal court in New York demands that the Obama administration turn over video tapes documenting the torture of Mohammed al-Qahtani at the US military prison in Guantanamo. The videotapes requested by the CCR constitute important evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity, and could serve as the basis for criminal indictments of top US military and civilian officials. The CCR made a formal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the tapes last year, but the Obama administration refused to turn them over.

Loggers 'burned Amazon tribe girl alive'

January 12, 2012 by legitgov

Loggers 'burned Amazon tribe girl alive' 10 Jan 2012 Loggers in Brazil captured an eight-year-old girl from one of the Amazon's last uncontacted tribes and burned her alive as part of a campaign to force the indigenous population from its land, reports claimed on Tuesday night. The child was said to have wandered away from her village, where around 60 members of the Awá tribe live a primitive life in complete isolation from the modern world, and fallen into the hands of the loggers. Luis Carlos Guajajaras, a local leader from a separate tribe, told a Brazilian news website that they tied to her a tree and set her alight as a warning to other natives, who live in a protected reserve in the north-eastern state of Maranhão. [Hopefully, the indigenous people are using any and *all* tactics against these sociopaths, including, of course, ARMED resistance.]

DHS command center monitors websites that cover bird flu, cybercrime --The monitoring scheme also features a five-page list of websites the Department's command center expected to be monitoring. 11 Jan 2012 The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's command center routinely monitors dozens of popular websites, according to a government document. A "privacy compliance review" issued by DHS last November says that since at least June 2010, its national operations center has been operating a "Social Networking/Media Capability" which involves regular monitoring of "publicly available online forums, blogs, public websites and message boards." Among blogs and aggregators on the list are ABC News' investigative blog "The Blotter;" blogs that cover bird flu [LOL! Have at it, maggots]; several blogs related to news and activity along U.S. borders (DHS runs border and immigration agencies); blogs that cover drug trafficking and cybercrime; and websites that follow wildfires in Los Angeles and hurricanes. [Yes, I see dhs.gov, dia.mil, treas.gov, usdoj.gov, quantico.nmci.usmc.mil, etc., in the CLG logs frequently. (Dhs.gov and dia.mil are in the logs almost daily.) I hope you enjoy the CLG's treasure-trove of bird flu articles, as CLG has asserted for years that the US government, Baxter pharma-terrorists, etc., have been the busiest of little bees trying to get a bird flu pandemic party started. See, for example: Baxter working on vaccine to stop swine flu, though admitted sending live pandemic flu viruses to subcontractor By Lori Price 26 Apr 2009.]

Two U.S. Aircraft Carriers Near Iran, With a Third On the Way

January 12, 2012 by legitgov

Two U.S. Aircraft Carriers Near Iran, With a Third On the Way 11 Jan 2012 The U.S.S. Carl Vinson has linked with the Navy's Fifth Fleet, and is somewhere in the northern Arabian Sea. It'll replace the U.S.S. John C. Stennis, which recently sailed out of the Strait of Hormuz. That means that during this latest period of [US/Israel-generated] tension with Iran, the U.S. military has two aircraft carrier battle groups in the region, the Vinson and the Stennis, neither of which is actually in the Arabian Gulf yet. And on her way is the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln, the Navy confirms, which is sailing from the Pacific to join with the Stennis. But it's unclear how soon the Stennis will depart the region, as it's scheduled to do - meaning there could, however briefly, be three carrier groups near Iran.

Conservative activists scramble to stop Mitt Romney 11 Jan 2012 A near-panic has taken hold among some core conservative activists, who are now scrambling to devise a strategy to deny [Karl Rove's] Mitt Romney the Republican presidential nomination. Many of these activists see South Carolina’s primary on Jan. 21 as their last best hope of stopping Romney by consolidating in a united front against him. The tension is exacerbated by the deep divisions between two key GOP wings: tea party groups yearning for a pure small-government conservative, and evangelical Christians who want a loyal social conservative.

Some Hudson Bay polar bears nearing starvation due to climate change: experts

Some Hudson Bay polar bears nearing starvation due to climate change: experts 10 Jan 2012 Experts say the slow formation of winter ice on Hudson Bay this year has pushed some of Canada's polar bears to the brink of starvation and forced them to scrounge for food near old garbage dumps. The bears weren't able to get onto the ice to hunt seals until late November this year, which observers say is becoming the norm. David Barber, one of the world's top Arctic researchers, said Hudson Bay polar bears have lost six weeks of hunting time on the ice due to climate change. "Those bears are all lining up along the coast line waiting for the ice to form," said Barber, who holds the Canada research chair in Arctic science at the University of Manitoba. "They're basically all starving. They are really at their limit biologically."
