September 23, 2013 by legitgov

7 die in US killer drone strike in Pakistan's North Waziristan 22 Sep 2013 Seven people have died and two others have been wounded in a US assassination drone strike in Pakistan's North Waziristan Province. The attack was carried out on Sunday, when a US drone fired four missiles at two houses in Shawal area, about 55 kilometers (35 miles) west of Miranshah Town. Reports say the latest drone strike is the 19th of its kind in Pakistan in 2013.

Companies seek to move in on Afghanistan's vast mineral wealth

September 23, 2013 by legitgov

Ah, then came the dawn. Companies seek to move in on Afghanistan's vast mineral wealth 22 Sep 2013 Few companies showed up to Afghanistan's fresh appeal for investment in its vast mineral wealth on Sunday, apparently deterred by trouble plaguing two of its largest projects and allowing small firms to emerge as the main contenders. Hopes are pinned on Afghanistan's trillion dollar wealth in resources weaning the country off international aid bribes, but early attempts to unlock its potential have hit serious setbacks. These appeared to have deterred major international firms from attending - leaving the path open to small investors with unconventional backgrounds criminals, prepared to take on deteriorating security and uncertainty ahead of next year's 'election.'

Peter King says al-Shabaab terror group recruited Somali Americans 22 Sep 2013 Representative Peter King, a member of the House homeland security committee, said on Sunday that the al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] affiliated group behind the deadly attack on an upscale shopping mall in Kenya recruited up to 50 people from Somali communities in the US. King said between 15 and 20 of the Somali Americans recruited by al-Shabaab remain active. The New York Republican said concern existed that some may return and "use their abilities on the US"; he also said he assumed the FBI and local law enforcement authorities were looking at spying on Somali-American communities to make sure no follow-up attacks were planned for the US.

Florida college to offer masters degree in drone warfare

Florida college to offer masters degree in drone warfare 22 Sep 2013 Secured inside a room you need a U.S. passport to enter is a modern arcade of war machines... The games here have great implications. Across the world, a $20 million Gray Eagle drone armed with four Hellfire missiles, ready to make a sortie into hostile territory is taking commands from a workstation like this one. A graduate from this room on the campus of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach could be in that other room in as little as six months with a master's degree in drone warfare, his hand on the joystick, making $150,000 a year.

Rand Paul wins 2016 presidential straw poll, trounces Chris Christie 22 Sep 2013 Sen. Rand Paul decisively won a straw poll held over the weekend in Michigan at a bi-annual gathering of Republicans, earning more than double the votes of rival New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Paul, the libertarian-leaning Republican from Kentucky, won 188 votes, or 36 percent, in the 2016 Mackinac Presidential Straw Poll. Christie came in at second with 82 votes, or 16 percent, in the poll.

Ohio State University police acquires Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicle

September 22, 2013 by legitgov

Ohio State University police acquires Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicle 17 Sep 2013 Ohio State University campus police (OSU PD) recently acquired what appears to be a Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicle to add to their fleet. Several attempts to contact the university have garnered little information about why a vehicle, which was specifically designed for asymmetric warfare, is needed on campus. The Ohio State University Department of Public Safety has acquired an armored military vehicle that looks like it belongs in Iraq or Afghanistan. Gary Lewis, a senior director of media relations at OSU, told The Daily Caller via email that the "unique, special-purpose vehicle is a replacement" for the "police fleet." He called the armored jalopy "an all-hazard, all-purpose, public safety-response vehicle" with "obviously enhanced capabilities."

Merkel wins in Germany, 'grand coalition' likely: exit polls

Merkel wins in Germany, 'grand coalition' likely: exit polls 22 Sep 2013 Chancellor Angela Merkel clinched a third term in German elections Sunday but will be forced to form an awkward coalition with her chief rivals to govern Europe's top economy, exit polls indicated. In one of the tightest races in German history, they punished her pro-business partner, the Free Democrats, kicking them out of parliament for the first time since 1949, according to the exit polls on public television. The upstart anti-euro party AfD appeared to fall just short of the five-percent hurdle to representation amid anger over German contributions to bailout packages for stricken eurozone partners.

Pakistan church blast 'kills 25' 22 Sep 2013 A bomb blast outside a church in the Pakistani city of Peshawar kills at least 25 people and injured more than 40, medics say. A bomb disposal officer said two suicide bombers blew themselves up outside the church when people were coming out after Sunday Mass. The victims were said to include women and children.

Greenpeace activists could be charged with terrorism after ship stormed

September 22, 2013 by legitgov

Greenpeace activists could be charged with terrorism after ship stormed --'Gazprom has no way to clean up an oil spill if it happened, and it would cause huge damage to one of the most fragile natural environments on the planet.' 20 Sep 2013 Jumping from helicopters and slithering down ropes, more than a dozen armed Russian coastguard workers boarded a Greenpeace ship and took custody of the activists on board, to stop them from disrupting the work of a controversial oil rig. After a scuffle between the activists and the Russian security forces, the 29 activists, including six British nationals, are apparently being held on board at gunpoint, while the ship is forcibly towed to the Arctic port of Murmansk. The Russian coastguard, which is controlled by the FSB security services, boarded the Arctic Sunrise late on Thursday night near Prirazlomnaya, a drilling platform in the Pechora Sea, close to the Novaya Zemlya archipelago.

FBI reports show widespread domestic surveillance

FBI reports show widespread domestic surveillance 20 Sep 2013 FBI files for a government antiterrorism program include a report that, in October 2010, someone saw "suspicious ME (Middle Eastern) males buy several large pallets of water" in Bakersfield. The FBI's records of Suspicious Activity Reports also include descriptions of a woman taking photos of the post office in Folsom (Sacramento County), Middle Eastern men taking "suspicious photography" of the federal courthouse in Sacramento, someone taking a picture of a bridge across the American River bike trail, and another Middle Eastern man applying for a pilot's license in Sacramento. The records were disclosed Thursday by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Asian Law Caucus, which obtained 1,800 Suspicious Activity Reports received by joint federal-state law enforcement centers in Sacramento and Los Angeles between June 2010 and June 2012.

Three US troops killed in Afghan 'insider attack' 21 Sep 2013 An Afghan soldier shot dead three US troops Saturday, officials said, in the latest "insider attack" to shake 'efforts' by the two armies to work together to defeat Taliban militants. Attacks in which Afghan forces turn their guns on their international partners have killed scores of US-led troops. A US defence official confirmed to AFP that the three victims were from the United States.

Shebab Twitter account suspended after Kenya mall attack claims 21 Sep 2013 The Twitter account of Somalia's Al Qaeda-linked Shebab rebels was suspended Saturday after they used the site to claim responsibility for an attack on a Nairobi shopping mall that left 39 dead and 150 wounded. A message from Twitter on the English-language @HSM_Press account read that the account was suspended, the third time this year that the group has been expelled from the site. According to Twitter users are blocked "for any unlawful purposes or in furtherance of illegal activities".

US Justice Dept oversight division never investigated surveillance court complaints

September 21, 2013 by legitgov

US Justice Dept oversight division never investigated surveillance court complaints 20 Sep 2013 The US Department of Justice's internal oversight body did not investigate complaints by federal intelligence court judges that government lawyers misrepresented how the NSA gathered and analyzed data from American phone and internet communications. Two judges on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), which oversees the spying operations of the National Security Agency (NSA), on several occasions admonished federal officials for misstating the scope of the NSA's collection of communication data. In 2009, Judge Reggie Walton threatened to hold the officials in contempt or refer them to outside investigators. Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyers asked the judge to do neither, claiming that any misinformation was solely due to confusion and that the NSA had "self-reported" the issues to its own inspector general.

Samples of the chips show a reading of up to 3,000 becquerels per kilogram, the officials said Tuesday. They were found in the dry bed of the Kamo River in Takashima and other locations near the lake, officials said.

Polar Bear Seal Diet Has Higher Contaminant Load: Impact of Global Warming

September 21, 2013 by legitgov

Polar Bear Seal Diet Has Higher Contaminant Load: Impact of Global Warming 21 Sep 2013 Polar bears have to contend with a lot of threats. Now, they may have to deal with just one more. Over the past 30 years, polar bears have increasingly exchanged ring seal with harp seal and hooded seal in their diets. Scientists have now discovered that this change has exposed polar bears to far more contaminants, which may impact their health. The polar bear is a species that's being drastically impacted by changing rising temperatures. Its habitat is shrinking and food sources are moving to adapt to the shifting climate. Because of this, polar bears have also had to adapt, though their populations are continuing to decline.

US nearly detonated atomic bomb over North Carolina - secret document

September 21, 2013 by legitgov

US nearly detonated atomic bomb over North Carolina - secret document 20 Sep 2013 A secret document, published in declassified form for the first time by the Guardian today, reveals that the US Air Force came dramatically close to detonating an atom bomb over North Carolina that would have been 260 times more powerful than the device that devastated Hiroshima. The document, obtained by the investigative journalist Eric Schlosser under the Freedom of Information Act, gives the first conclusive evidence that the US was narrowly spared a disaster of monumental proportions when two Mark 39 hydrogen bombs were accidentally dropped over Goldsboro, North Carolina on 23 January 1961. The bombs fell to earth after a B-52 bomber broke up in mid-air, and one of the devices behaved precisely as a nuclear weapon was designed to behave in warfare: its parachute opened, its trigger mechanisms engaged, and only one low-voltage switch prevented untold carnage.

U.S. infrastructure boom in Afghanistan: $37 million aviation facility used to store opium

U.S. infrastructure boom in Afghanistan: $37 million aviation facility used to store opium 21 Sep 2013 The U.S.-led 'effort' to train the Afghan air force faces big challenges ranging from security threats to possible repercussions from a new review of infrastructure and equipment projects, the U.S. general in charge said. "This is a hard deal. We're far from 100-percent guaranteed on delivery," said Air Force Brigadier General John Michel, who leads NATO Air Training Command Afghanistan, which is due to complete its training of the Afghan air force by December 31, 2017 - three years after most U.S. forces leave Afghanistan. He said the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force was re-examining all infrastructure projects after a report that one $37 million aviation facility may have been used to store opium and other concerns raised by Congress. A group of U.S. lawmakers this week called on U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to use all available resources to back up the Pentagon's criminal investigation into potentially improper payments made by an Army aviation unit that awarded contracts to Russian and U.S. firms to maintain and overhaul Russian-made Mi-17 helicopters. [Debt ceiling debate, anyone? GOPigs and DemocRATs have NO PROBLEM spending billions to protect the CIA's heroin trade routes in Afghanistan, under the guise of 'infrastructure' building. But these sociopaths vote to cut *food stamps?* This is INSANE. Start reading.]

Gene sequences of deadly Saudi virus show complex transmission

Gene sequences of deadly Saudi virus show complex transmission 20 Sep 2013 Genetic analysis of samples of the deadly MERS virus that has killed 58 people in the Middle East and Europe shows the disease has jumped from animals to humans several times, scientists said on Friday. At least 132 people have been infected with the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) coronavirus since it emerged about a year ago, and it has killed 58 of them, according to the World Health Organisation. After conducting genome sequencing studies of the virus - from the same coronavirus family as the one that caused SARS a decade ago, British and Saudi researchers found several infection transmission chains and said they painted a picture of what they called lively "pathogenic chatter" between species.

Brain-Eating Bug Enters US Water Supply [Did it start in Congress?] 20 Sep 2013 A deadly, brain-eating amoeba has been found in the water supply in Louisiana. The amoeba - Naegleria fowleri - was found in water tested in the Violet and Arabi communities in Louisiana, outside New Orleans. It is believed to be the first time the parasite has been identified in a US water supply, but health officials say that it is still safe to drink.

Japan dismissed US warnings to contain radioactive water at Fukushima

September 20, 2013 by legitgov

Japan dismissed US warnings to contain radioactive water at Fukushima 20 Sep 2013 Japanese authorities ignored US calls to contain contaminated water at the stricken Fukushima power plant in 2008, officials told media. The revelation comes as the Japanese battle to stem radioactive water leaks flooding into the sea from the facility. Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) estimates that 300 metric tons of groundwater has mixed with radioactive material at the site and is steadily flowing out to sea. Four hundred metric tons of groundwater runs into the nuclear facility from higher ground every day, TEPCO estimates.

Grounds to believe Syria chemical attack was smart provocation - Putin

September 20, 2013 by legitgov

Grounds to believe Syria chemical attack was smart provocation - Putin 19 Sep 2013 Russia has every reason to believe that the use of chemical weapons in a Damascus suburb in August was an adroit and smart provocation, President Vladimir Putin has said. "We have every grounds to believe that it was a provocation. Of course, it was adroit and smart, but, at the same time, primitive in terms of technical performance. They took an old Soviet-made missile, which was taken out of service in the Syrian army long ago. It was most important to have 'made in the USSR' written [on the missile]," Putin said at the Valday discussion forum on Thursday. The Russian president pointed out that the August 21st attack in Damascus was not the first time chemical weapons had been used in Syria.

DeLay conviction overturned; DA promises appeal 19 Sep 2013 Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's prayers were answered Thursday when an Austin Court of Appeals voted 2 to 1 to throw out his conviction for illegally laundering corporate money in political campaigns, but prosecutors immediately said they would appeal the latest development in the 11-year-old case. Attending a Washington, D.C., prayer group Thursday morning when his attorney called with the news, DeLay said he found vindication in the reversal of a jury verdict sentencing him to three years in prison for violating state campaign laws. The Travis County District Attorney's Office released a statement "strongly disagreeing" with the appeals court ruling.

Japan's Abe orders surviving Fukushima reactors scrapped, pledges safe Olympics 19 Sep 2013 Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ordered the scrapping of two Fukushima nuclear reactors that survived the 2011 tsunami. He also said he stood by his commitments to the International Olympic Committee of insuring a safe 2020 Summer Games. Abe, speaking to reporters after a tour of the plant on Thursday, said he told Tokyo Electric Power Co to set a time frame for dealing with leaking contaminated water. "...I have directed them to decommission the No. 5 and No. 6 reactors that are now halted," Abe said.

House GOP votes to cut $39 billion from food stamp program 19 Sep 2013 With only Republicans voting in support, the GOP-led House passed a bill Thursday to reduce spending for food stamps by $39 billion over 10 years. The vote was 217-210. No Democrats voted for the measure. Fifteen Republicans voted against the bill, which the Congressional Budget Office estimates will result in the loss of benefits for an estimated 3.8 million people in 2014.

Venezuela says U.S. bans Maduro from flying over Puerto Rico

September 20, 2013 by legitgov

Venezuela says U.S. bans Maduro from flying over Puerto Rico 19 Sep 2013 Venezuela said on Thursday the United States banned President Nicolas Maduro's jet from flying through U.S. airspace over Puerto Rico en route to a state visit to China in what Caracas called an act of aggression. There was no immediate comment from the United States, and it was unclear why Maduro's flight would be rejected. Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said a flight plan filed by Venezuela that would have routed the president's plane over Puerto Rico had been rejected by U.S. authorities. "We denounce it as yet more U.S. aggression," Jaua said. "We reserve the right to take whatever measures we have to if the U.S. government and its aviation authorities don't rectify this new assault on Venezuela's sovereignty."

Radios 'failed' during Navy Yard attack, emergency responders say

Radios 'failed' during Navy Yard attack, emergency responders say --Initially, officers found that their radios were working. But as they ventured deeper into the building where the shooting took place, their equipment stopped functioning. 19 Sep 2013 Radios for federal firefighters and police officers 'failed' during Monday's mass shooting at Washington’s Navy Yard, according to union representatives for first responders. Union officials said police and firefighters resorted to using their cellphones and radios from D.C.'s emergency responders to communicate with each other during the attack. Anthony Meely, chairman of the Fraternal Order of Police Naval District Washington (NDW) Labor Committee, said police officers who were first on the scene at the Navy Yard had trouble communicating with others in the force via their radios.

Court in Va. hears appeal in NC terror case 19 Sep 2013 Attorneys for three members of a North Carolina terror ring are asking a federal appeals court in Virginia to toss out their convictions and sentences because of insufficient evidence and other issues. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond heard arguments on Thursday in the case of Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan, Hysen Sherifi and Ziyad Yaghi. Attorneys for the men told the three-judge panel of the appeals court that the evidence presented did not constitute conspiracy.
