"The US administration is pushing forth with its flagrant interference in Syria's internal affairs and its backing of armed terrorist groups," read the statement.

Indiana First State to Allow Citizens to Shoot Law Enforcement Officers 11 Jun 2012 Police officers in Indiana are upset over a new law allowing residents to use deadly force against public servants, including law enforcement officers, who unlawfully enter their homes. It was signed by Republican Governor Mitch Daniels in March.

The court had ruled that there was "no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers."

NSA Buddy Google Relegating CLG Newsletters to the Spam Bin

NSA Buddy Google Relegating CLG Newsletters to the Spam Bin By Lori Price, http://www.legitgov.org/ 12 Jun 2012 If you are wondering why you do not receive your CLG Newsletters, and you (unfortunately) have Gmail as your mail client, check your spam bin. Often, CLG subscribers send emails similar to one received Monday from CLG reader Kerry B., which read in part:

I assume this is common, but for the record... First I'd like to thank you for the excellent information you share! I'm writing to report a problem I've had with Gmail and your newsletter ever since I first subscribed. Even though I have marked countless newsletters as "not spam" and added CLG to my contacts multiple times, "random" newsletters will still slip quietly into my spam folder without fail. I'm now in the habit of rummaging through my spam with the sole purpose of catching and rescuing CLG's emails.

Again today after realizing that I haven't seen anything lately from you, I went digging. Sure enough, the update sent earlier today entitled "3,000 U.S. soldiers to serve in Africa next year 11 Jun 2012" had been marked as spam, again, with absolutely no legitimate reason. I'm not sure if these types of occurrences are common or if you are aware of such an issue, but I want you to know that this is happening to me, and it happens often...

And so, if you did NOT receive the CLG Newsletter titled, '3,000 U.S. soldiers to serve in Africa next year 11 Jun 2012,' please write signup @ legitgov dot org and I will pass it along.

Channel 4 journalist Alex Thomson says Syria rebels led me into death trap 09 Jun 2012 A senior British journalist has claimed Syrian rebels terrorists tried to lead him and his team into a death trap so they would be killed by gunfire from government forces in a bid to discredit the Assad command. Alex Thomson, chief correspondent for Channel 4 News said the incident happened on Monday in the Syrian town of Qusair, about half an hour's drive from the battered city of Homs. Thomson said he, his driver, a translator, and two other journalists were trying to return to government lines when their rebel escort led them down what he described as a dead-end in the middle of a "free-fire zone"... Thomson claimed that they were not led into no-man's-land by mistake. "I'm quite clear the rebels deliberately set us up to be shot by the Syrian army," he wrote in a blog post on Channel 4's website.

They responded by offering up to $100 billion euros (£81bn) in credit that the Spanish government could funnel to banks.

June 11, 2012 by legitgov

US unleashes CIA to resume 'aggressive' drone attacks 08 Jun 2012 A frustrated US government has accorded sanction to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to resume "aggressive" drone strikes in Pakistan, a move that may have been disapproved in the past fearing Islamabad's anger, according to a report. The Los Angeles Times in a Kabul datelined story quoted an unnamed "senior US official" as saying the US attitude now is like "what do we have to lose" if drone strikes to target [alleged] militants hiding in Pakistan are increased. The CIA has launched eight drone attacks since May 21 when Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari was invited to attend the NATO summit in Chicago.

'Appalling' Scene at Site of Latest Syria Massacre, Despite Lack of Bodies

June 11, 2012 by legitgov

'Appalling' Scene at Site of Latest Syria Massacre, Despite Lack of Bodies 08 Jun 2012 A journalist traveling with a group of U.N. monitors today described to ABC News in chilling and graphic detail what he'd witnessed in the aftermath of Wednesday's massacre in Mazraat al-Qubair that activists said left nearly 80 dead, including women and children. Paul Danahar, the Middle East bureau chief for the BBC, said residents in nearby villages said that a group of 'Alawite militia' fatally shot and stabbed everyone and everything, including livestock. "What's slightly confusing about the scenario is that terrorists don't normally collect the bodies of the people they've killed and take them away," Danahar said today. "Somebody's cleaned this place up to try to hide the evidence, and it's going to be very difficult to piece it together." [Obviously, foreign terrorists went on another killing spree and removed the bodies to conceal evidence. Only US-backed sociopaths would *stab livestock.*]

Anti-Assad Forces Responsible for Houla Massacre - Report

June 11, 2012 by legitgov

Anti-Assad Forces Responsible for Houla Massacre - Report 09 Jun 2012 According to a new report in Germany's leading daily, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), the Houla massacre was in fact committed by anti-Assad Sunni militants, and the bulk of the victims were member of the Alawi and Shia minorities, which have been largely supportive of Assad... According to monastery sources cited by the Dutch Middle East expert Martin Janssen, armed rebels murdered "entire Alawi families" in the village of Taldo in the Houla region. Already at the beginning of April, Mother Agnès-Mariam de la Croix of the St. James Monastery warned of rebel atrocities' being repackaged in both Arab and Western media accounts as government atrocities. She cited the case of a massacre in the Khalidiya neighborhood in Homs. According to an account published in French on the monastery's website, rebels gathered Christian and Alawi hostages in a building in Khalidiya and blew up the building with dynamite. They then attributed the crime to the regular Syrian army. [Right, just like in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan when Blackwater and CIAciopaths were blowing up everything in sight and blaming 'insurgents.' --LRP]

After Gaddafi, Libya splits into disparate militia zones

June 10, 2012 by legitgov

After Gaddafi, Libya splits into disparate militia zones 09 Jun 2012 It's not independence but democracy that the people want, says Hanna El Gallal, a human rights activist. "We got rid of Gaddafi, but not the regime," she tells me. She points to the secrecy of the [US-installed] National Transitional Council, which, despite promising democracy, keeps its meetings secret and refuses even to disclose its full membership. "We didn't do a revolution and our people did not die to bring a new dictatorship." When the NTC does issue decrees, Libyans are aghast; last month it issued law number 37, making it a criminal offence to criticise the "17 February revolution".

At least 20 people were killed on Friday as rebels foreign terrorists stepped up a week-long offensive to avenge the killings in Qubair, the fourth incident of mass bloodletting directed at members of Syria's Sunni majority in a fortnight.
