April 25, 2012 by legitgov

Karl Rove Buys 5 More States for Mitt Romney --After 5 More Contests, Romney Solidifies Lead 25 Apr 2012 Mitt Romney effectively assumed the helm of the Republican Party on Tuesday after five primary victories across the Northeast solidified his stature as the presidential nominee-in-waiting who is trying to unite conservatives and persuade independent voters that President Obama does not deserve a second term. As Mr. Romney received a significant boost in delegates from New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware, lurching closer to the total needed to formally secure the nomination, he marked the milestone by outlining themes of the fall campaign in a visit to this battleground state.

Padilla takes torture case to US Supreme Court 24 April 2012  US citizen Jose Padilla, who was jailed for four years as an "enemy combatant" and claims to have been tortured, has asked the Supreme Court to reinstate his civil case against top US officials. His bid to sue former and present officials including Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and former secretary Donald Rumsfeld was rejected by an appeals court in January, which said they enjoyed official immunity. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Padilla's mother Estela Lebron appealed the ruling. Padilla is in a maximum-security prison in Colorado after being convicted in 2007 of aiding a homegrown Al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] cell.

April 24, 2012 by legitgov

Bradley Manning lawyer says case 'mishandled' as hearings continue 24 Apr 2012 Bradley Manning, the US soldier accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of secret state documents to WikiLeaks, will face his military detractors again on Tuesday at the start of up to three more days of procedural hearings ahead of a full court martial. Manning's lawyer, David Coombs, has filed several defence motions with the military court in Fort Meade, Maryland, that call for all 22 charges against his client to be dismissed on grounds that the prosecution has mishandled the case. The lawyer will argue that the proceedings have been beset by delays and by refusal to hand over key documents during the discovery process, which he will say is a violation of the military rule book for court martials.

April 24, 2012 by legitgov

2 Marines to Be Dismissed for Lying About Haditha Killings 20 Apr 2012 The Navy on Thursday initiated dismissal proceedings against two Marines from a squad that killed 24 unarmed Iraqi civilians in 2005, saying they lied to military investigators after the massacre. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus made the decision, and Sgt. Sanick Dela Cruz and Sgt. Humberto Mendoza were notified of the move Thursday, said Lt. Cmdr. Tamara Lawrence, a Navy spokeswoman. The Marine Corps dropped criminal charges against both men in exchange for their testimony at the trial of former Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, the squad leader and lone Marine convicted in the Haditha killings.

Army major's despair at our 'pointless war': Senior officer's damning emails reveal plummeting morale at heart of Afghan campaign that has cost 409 British lives 21 Apr 2012 They are stark words that reveal the despair of our forces fighting in Afghanistan. Emails sent to a former military chaplain paint a damning picture of sinking morale among Servicemen who feel the human cost of the conflict can no longer be justified. Dr Peter Lee, a university lecturer who spent seven years as an RAF padre, has released the emails to highlight the extent of disillusionment within the ranks. The correspondence includes two emails sent by a major on the brink of a fresh deployment to the region. He likens the prospect to 'being put on for the last two minutes of a lost game' of rugby.

Pentagon establishes Defense Clandestine Service, new espionage unit 23 Apr 2012 The Pentagon is planning to ramp up its spying operations against high-priority targets such as Iran under an intelligence reorganization aimed at expanding the military's espionage efforts beyond war zones, a senior defense official said Monday. The newly created Defense Clandestine Service would work closely with the CIA in an effort to bolster espionage operations overseas at a time when the missions of the agency and the military increasingly converge. The official said the new service is expected to grow "from several hundred to several more hundred" operatives in the coming years.

April 23, 2012 by legitgov

Heads up! Big false flag brewing for NATO summit: 500 troopers may help handle NATO protesters --NATO summit designated 'National Special Security Event' --National Guard schedules 'emergency response drill' outside Chicago during summit week 22 Apr 2012 As many as 500 troopers from the Illinois State Police will assist the Chicago Police Department in handling thousands of protesters expected to descend on Chicago during the May 20-21 NATO summit, City Hall sources said Friday. Earlier this week, the Illinois National Guard disclosed that as many as 600 of its troops would help move international delegations around the city during the summit. The National Guard also revealed that it has scheduled an emergency response drill outside the city during summit weekend so even more of its troops can be summoned to Chicago in the event of largescale trouble. [Bye-bye, Posse Comitatus!]

April 23, 2012 by legitgov

'I've had my phone tapped': Susan Sarandon claims 'government is watching her'... and reveals she was denied White House security clearance 23 Apr 2012 Actress and left-wing activist Susan Sarandon has claimed she was recently denied security clearance for a visit to the White House - and that the government has been tapping her phone. The Oscar winner, who has vehemently condemned the war in Iraq, made the claims on Sunday during a Q&A session at the Tribeca Film Festival - an 11-day event in New York's Lower Manhattan. One audience member asked whether Sarandon, who was answering questions alongside documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, believed she was under surveillance by the government. 'We know we're under surveillance,' Sarandon said: 'I've had my phone tapped.'

6.7 million bats already dead, White-nose Syndrome could lead to extinction of some species - scientists 10 Apr 2012 More than six million bats are dead, and millions more are expected to fall victim to a disease known as White-nose Syndrome, or WNS. First identified in the northeastern United States, WNS has wiped out an estimated 95% of Pennsylvania's bat population and is quickly spreading across the country. It was most recently discovered in Missouri, Delaware and Alabama. "This is like bringing small pox to the New World. It is surely an unprecedented wildlife disaster for North America," said Bucknell University professor Dr. DeeAnn Reeder.

Israeli military ready for action in Iran: military 22 Apr 2012 The Israeli military is ready for action in Iran if need be, Israel's army chief of staff said in remarks published Sunday. "In principal, we are ready for action," Lieutenant-General Benny Gantz said in an interview with Yediot Ahronot, Israel's biggest-selling daily. He believes 2012 will be a critical year as far as Iran's nuclear programme was concerned, Yediot said. "The state of Israel believes that a nuclear Iran is very bad, that the world must stop it and that Israel must stop it and we are preparing our plan accordingly," he said. [Actually, 'the world' believes 'the opposite.']

April 22, 2012 by legitgov

Egypt terminates 2005 gas deal with Israel 22 Apr 2012 Egypt has repealed a 2005 gas export accord with Israel, which relied heavily on Egyptian natural gas to generate electricity. The deal was "annulled on Thursday with the East Mediterranean Gas Co (EMG), which exports gas to Israel, because the company failed to respect conditions stipulated in the contract," Mohamed Shoeib, the chairman of the state-owned Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company, told AFP on Sunday. The deal would oblige Egypt to supply gas to Israel as one of the main economic conditions of a US-sponsored 1979 peace treaty between the two sides.

Data on downed US drone decrypted: IRGC Cmdr. 22 Apr 2012 A senior Iranian commander says Iran has successfully decoded all the records on the downed US RQ-170 Sentinel reconnaissance drone. Iran has easily cracked the codes on the data of the drone's operations and tasks recorded on the aircraft's memory, said Navy Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi. There were "numerous codes, but we obtained all the information on its memory, including protocols, repairs and flight sorties; for instance, the data of a flight after repairs in 2010 or the [drone's] deployment in the operation against [Osama] bin Laden in Pakistan," IRNA quoted the commander as saying on Sunday.

USAID training foreign workers for English-speaking jobs 20 Apr 2012 While the president has been urging "insourcing," the government has been sending money to the Philippines to train foreign workers for jobs in English-speaking call centers. According to New York Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop and North Carolina Republican Rep. Walter Jones, this is unacceptable and "shocking." The pair are calling on the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to immediately suspend what is known as the Job Enabling English Proficiency (JEEP) program.

Misinformation campaign targets USA TODAY reporter, editor

April 22, 2012 by legitgov

Misinformation campaign targets USA TODAY reporter, editor --If the websites were created using federal funds, it could violate federal law prohibiting the production of propaganda for domestic consumption. 19 Apr 2012 A USA TODAY reporter and editor investigating Pentagon propaganda contractors have themselves been subjected to a propaganda campaign of sorts, waged on the Internet through a series of bogus websites. Fake Twitter and Facebook accounts have been created in their names, along with a Wikipedia entry and dozens of message board postings and blog comments. Websites were registered in their names. The timeline of the activity tracks USA TODAY's reporting on the military's "information operations" program, which spent hundreds of millions of dollars on marketing campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan -- campaigns that have been criticized even within the Pentagon as ineffective and poorly monitored.

Afghan military recruits found dealing drugs to US soldiers, Army documents show 20 Apr 2012 Afghan forces are being trained by the U.S. military to take over the mission [of protecting gas and opium routes] by 2014, but new documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a request under the Freedom of Information Act show that some of the Afghan recruits stand accused of dealing drugs to U.S. soldiers. Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton and his investigators found that between January 2010 and December 2011, the Army investigated 56 soldiers in Afghanistan for the possession, use or distribution of opiates. Heroin was cited 26 times. A December 2011 report from Army Criminal Investigation Command shows that at one forward operation base the drugs hash, pot and heroin were purchased "from various Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police personnel."

Grassley wants to know if White House aides were connected to prostitution scandal 21 Apr 2012 GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is asking the Secret Service whether members of the White House advance team are connected to the Colombian prostitution scandal, considering their "close working relationship" with federal agents. Grassley, R-Nutjob-Iowa, sent the letter Friday to agency Director Mark Sullivan and acting Inspector General Charles Edwards. He also asked in the letter if the Secret Service is looking at whether the White House communications office also could be involved. Grassley is concerned about whether White House officials were in the same hotel and if the prostitutes could have had access to their rooms. [Right, he's annoyed that actual prostitutes may have impinged upon the blocks of time typically reserved for the whores from Monsanto, Exxon Mobil and Goldman Sachs instead of those from Cartagena. --LRP]

Wal-Mart silenced Mexico bribe inquiry: NY Times 21 Apr 2012 Retail giant Wal-Mart Stores Inc squelched its own internal investigation of allegations made by a former executive of its subsidiary in Mexico that the Mexican division had orchestrated a campaign of bribery to grab market dominance, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

Wal-Mart sent investigators to Mexico City and found evidence of widespread bribery, but Wal-Mart's leaders then shut down the investigation and notified neither American nor Mexican law enforcement officials, the Times reported.

Florida didn't save money by drug testing welfare recipients, data show 19 Apr 2012 Required drug tests for people seeking welfare benefits ended up costing taxpayers more than it saved and failed to curb the number of prospective applicants, data used against the state in an ongoing legal battle show. The findings - that only 108 of the 4,086 people who took a drug test failed - are additional ammunition for the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, which sued the state and won a temporary ban on the drug-testing program in October, said ACLU spokesman Derek Newton. Attorneys for the state immediately appealed the ban, and will face off against the ACLU again at the 11th Circuit Court in Atlanta and the U.S. District Court in Orlando in coming months.

Meridor: Iran never called to wipe out Israel

Meridor: Iran never called to wipe out Israel --Deputy PM admits Ahmadinejad was misquoted, never said Israel must be wiped off the map 17 Apr 2012 Minister of Intelligence and Atomic Energy Dan Meridor told Al Jazeera that Iran never vowed to "wipe Israel off the map," as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly claimed. Speaking to the Arab network, Meridor, who also serves as deputy PM, said Iran's leaders "all come basically ideologically, religiously with the statement that Israel is an unnatural creature, it will not survive." In 2005 Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying that Israel should be "wiped off the map," but it was later revealed that the translation of his remarks, published by media outlets around the world, was incorrect. Ahmadinejad was actually quoting the leader of the 1979 Islamic revolution: "The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time."

US Muslim: I Was Tortured at FBI's Behest in UAE 18 Apr 2012 A Muslim American seeking asylum in Sweden claimed Wednesday he was detained at the U.S. government's request while in the United Arab Emirates last summer, tortured in custody, and interrogated about the activities of a Portland, Oregon, mosque. Yonas Fikre told a news conference Wednesday that he was held for 106 days and was beaten, threatened with death and kept in solitary confinement in a frigid cell. Fikre, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Eritrea, says he had attended the same mosque in Portland as a man who has been charged in a plot to detonate a bomb in the northwestern U.S. city.

3 Arrested at Heathrow on Suspicions of Terrorism --Police: The three were detained by officers from West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit as part of 'preplanned and intelligence-led' operation. [i.e., entrapment for future false flag] 21 Apr 2012 Three men have been arrested at Heathrow Airport and held on suspicion of "possessing articles and documents with intent to use them for terrorist purposes overseas," the police said on Friday. The suspects, residents of Britain's second-largest city, Birmingham, were arrested Thursday night as they arrived from Oman. They were held under Section 57 of the British Terrorism Act. That law makes it a criminal offense to possess materials that create a "reasonable suspicion" that they are "for a purpose connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism."

Judge rules against CIA whistle-blower 20 Apr 2012 A federal judge has ruled a CIA whistle-blower will have to forfeit any future money he earns from a scathing book he wrote about the spy agency after he failed to get approval from his former employer prior to publication. The CIA accused the officer of breaking his secrecy agreement with the U.S. The former officer, who worked deep undercover, published the book in July 2008 using the pseudonym "Ishmael Jones." The CIA says his book, "The Human Factor: Inside the CIA's Dysfunctional Intelligence Culture," was submitted to the agency's publications review board under a secrecy agreement that covers books written by former employees.
