Iran rejects US plotting accusations 11 Oct 2011 Iran has categorically rejected the US accusations that the Islamic Republic was involved in a plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to Washington, calling it a 'prefabricated scenario.' Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Ramin Mehmanparast, said on Tuesday that such 'ludicrous' claims hinged on the hostile joint stances adopted by the US and Israel against the country. "These threadbare attitudes, which are based on the age-old and hostile American-Zionist policies, are a ridiculous show in line with certain [instances of] scenario fabrication of divisive ends on the part of the enemies of Islam and the region," Mehmanparast said.

UW Professors: Accused Anthrax Killer Couldn't Have Done It

October 11, 2011 by legitgov

UW Professors: Accused Anthrax Killer Couldn't Have Done It 07 Oct 2011 Colleagues of accused anthrax killer Bruce Ivins say evidence from the laboratory clearly demonstrates that Ivins could not have committed the crime. "The scientific evidence clearly shows that the (anthrax) wasn't produced in our laboratory (USAMRIID)," the two UW professors [Jeffrey J. Adamovicz and Gerry Andrews] say. "The FBI based part of its case on unusual activity that took place in our lab for one week. There is no way he could produce that amount of spores in our lab during that time." Other independent laboratories couldn't produce anthrax under similar lab conditions, and the FBI could not recreate the attack strain, Adamovicz says.

Calif. Governor Veto Allows Warrantless Cellphone Searches

October 11, 2011 by legitgov

Calif. Governor Veto Allows Warrantless Cellphone Searches 10 Oct 2011 California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) is vetoing legislation requiring police to obtain a court warrant to search the mobile phones of suspects at the time of any arrest. The Sunday veto means that when police arrest anybody in the Golden State, they may search that person's mobile phone -- which in the digital age likely means the contents of persons' e-mail, call records, text messages, photos, banking activity, cloud-storage services, and even where the phone has traveled. Brown's veto also shores up support with police unions and the Peace Officers Research Association of California, a police union that opposed the legislation and recently donated $38,900 to Brown's campaign coffers.

KBR Dodges Lawsuit by Electrocuted Marine

October 11, 2011 by legitgov

KBR Dodges Lawsuit by Electrocuted Marine 10 Oct 2011 A Marine who was electrocuted while trying to install a wiring box at the military base near Fallujah, Iraq, cannot pursue negligence claims against defense contractor Kellogg Brown & Root, the 4th Circuit ruled. Peter Taylor had sought relief from the appellate court after a federal judge dismissed the claim in April 2010. Senior U.S. District Judge Robert Doumar had agreed with KBR that Taylor lacked subject-matter jurisdiction since the political question doctrine bars negligence claims. Doumar also found that the "combat activities" exemption of the Federal Tort Claims Act pre-empts the suit.

DoJ's WikiLeaks Probe Widens to Include Gmail, ISP 10 Oct 2011 The U.S. government's investigation against WikiLeaks and its supporters went beyond its efforts to obtain data from Twitter.

The orders, issued last January for Google and in April for Sonic, remained secret until Sonic succeeded to convince a court to lift the seal on its order so that Appelbaum could be informed about it, according to the Wall Street Journal.

October 10, 2011 by legitgov

Data show Texas voters could be barred under new ID law 08 Oct 2011 As many as a quarter of voters in some small Texas counties might not be able to cast ballots if the federal government allows the new state voter ID law to go into effect. The impact of the law was gleaned from several pages of data that the Texas secretary of state's office provided to the U.S. Department of Justice, which is reviewing the law to determine whether it illegally hurts minority voters. The data show that in 27 of Texas's 254 counties, at least 10 percent of the registered voters might be unable to cast ballots, if Senate Bill 14 by Sen. Troy Fraser, R-Horseshoe Bay, takes effect. "Republicans are using cheap tricks to steal elections," said Rebecca Acuña, spokeswoman for the Texas Democratic Party.

October 10, 2011 by legitgov

Cain: Wall St. protesters 'anti-American' 09 Oct 2011 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain on Sunday accused anti-Wall Street protesters of playing the "victim card" - and suggested that those participating in protests nationwide against corporate greed and a lack of jobs are merely doing so out of "jealousy."

German General Says NATO Mission Has 'Failed'

October 10, 2011 by legitgov

German General Says NATO Mission Has 'Failed' 07 Oct 2011 A top German general who was instrumental in planning the Bundeswehr's mission in Afghanistan has said that the intervention has failed and the Taliban will regain power within months of withdrawal. Ten years after the invasion, he is far from alone with his critique. It was 10 years ago that the United States, together with its NATO allies, marched into Afghanistan to put an end to Taliban rule and begin the hunt for al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden seize gas and opium pipelines. Harald Kujat, former general inspector of the German military, says the mission has been a failure. "The mission fulfilled the political aim of showing solidarity with the United States," Kujat told the German daily Mitteldeutsche Zeitung. "But if you measure progress against the goal of stabilizing a country and a region, then the mission has failed."

October 10, 2011 by legitgov

After New Pledge to Leave, Yemeni President Moves to Stay in Power 10 Oct 2011 Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh will not voluntarily leave office any time soon. The vaguely worded pledge he issued Saturday to step aside appeared, a day later, to be just another feint. While he had seemed to be moving toward accepting a plan initially proposed in the spring by the Gulf Cooperation Council to cede power to a transitional government, two high-ranking Yemeni officials said Sunday that the country's foreign minister had traveled to the United Arab Emirates to offer the council a new plan. This one, they said, calls for Mr. Saleh to remain in office until elections next year.

Persistent drought threatens Texas oil industry 07 Oct 2011 Crippling drought and booming industry don't go hand-in-hand -- or at least they can't for long. That’s what Texas industry leaders and policymakers are remembering right now as the state grapples with the question of how to maintain economic growth in the midst of its worst dry spell on record. The bone-dry conditions of the past ten months have destroyed an estimated $5.2 billion worth of crops and livestock in Texas and have helped spread wildfires that have destroyed thousands of homes and millions of acres of land.

Protesters spent their fourth night camping outside Los Angeles City Hall, disrupted a bankers conference at a Newport Beach yacht club and demonstrated outside a financial executive's Bel Air home.
