July 8, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima Disaster Was Man-Made, Investigation Finds [Yeah, HAARP and Stuxnet.] 05 Jul 2012 The Fukushima nuclear disaster was the result of "man-made" failures before and after last year's earthquake, according to a report from an independent parliamentary investigation. The breakdowns involved regulators working with the plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. to avoid implementing safety measures as well as a government lacking commitment to protect the public, the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission said in the report. The report said the commission found evidence of "collusion" between Tokyo Electric and regulator, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, to avoid implementing new safety regulations. Tokyo Electric also exploited its cozy relationship with regulators to take the teeth out of regulations.

At least 30 deaths were blamed on the heat, including nine in Maryland and 10 in Chicago, mostly among the elderly.

The posting says the video was recorded in Wardak province, which lies south-west of the capital, Kabul, in September 2009.

U.S. gives ally Afghanistan special security status

July 7, 2012 by legitgov

Coalition of the Bribed still costing US taxpayers *billions:* U.S. gives ally Afghanistan special security status 07 Jul 2012 Washington declared Afghanistan a major non-NATO ally on Saturday, a largely symbolic status reinforcing its message to Afghans that they US mercenaries/corpora-terrorists and will not be abandoned as the war winds down. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the decision, made by President Barack Obama, during her unannounced visit to Kabul where she met President Hamid Karzai on the eve of a major donors' conference in Tokyo which will draw pledges for aid. The status upgrade may help Afghanistan acquire U.S. defense supplies and have greater access to U.S. training as the Afghan army takes more responsibility for the country's security ahead of the 2014 withdrawal of most NATO combat troops.

It released its final report Thursday... The report concluded that TEPCO was not a victim of excessive intervention by the Prime Minister's Office's but was the main culprit in inviting it.

Firearms, other weapons and other unspecified material were later found [aka planted] inside which prompted police to trace and arrest the driver, passenger and other suspects.

Senior IDF officer: Israel is preparing for the next Lebanon war --Officer says 'Goldstone report will pale in comparison to what will be here next time.' 05 Jul 2012 Six years after the outbreak of the Second Lebanon War, the IDF is saying openly that Israel is preparing for another Lebanon war.

The 91st Division, part of the Northern Command, and responsible for the front with Lebanon, sees developments in Syria [aka CIAciopaths/NATO killing civilians and blaming the Syrian government] as one of the factors that could upset the calm that has prevailed in the region since the war.

Passengers could be asked to give drink samples to TSA 05 Jul 2012 Passengers say their problem is not with the rules at the airport.

Passengers say traveling is a big enough stress, but now some are worried the drinks they are getting are not safe. The TSA wouldn't say what they're testing for or why they are doing it, but travelers say they have a right to know.

Six arrested in London over alleged terror plot

July 6, 2012 by legitgov

Six arrested in London over alleged terror plot 05 Jul 2012 Three brothers from Stratford - home to the Olympic Games - have been arrested in a pre-planned counter-terrorism operation. The three were among six individuals whom investigators arrested on Thursday. The group is understood to have included a former police and community support officer for the Metropolitan police, but Scotland Yard would not confirm that detail. The raids were carried out by counter-terrorism officers investigating a suspected plot to attack targets in Britain. One person was shot with a Taser stun gun and Scotland Yard said armed officers had been deployed during the arrests, which is an unusual decision and indicative of the risk counter-terrorism chiefs thought officers faced in detaining the suspects.

Five men and a woman were arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism and were being held at a southeast London police station, police said.

Greenpeace: Save Polar Bears From Homelessness

July 5, 2012 by legitgov

Greenpeace: Save Polar Bears From Homelessness 05 Jul 2012 Watching a stranded animal scrounge and starve is enough to pull at anyone’s heart strings. That is the imagery behind a powerful new Greenpeace video staring a homeless polar bear wondering the streets of London. The clip, featuring music from Radiohead and a voiceover by actor Jude Law, encourages individuals to join Greenpeace's campaign to "Save the Arctic" and help polar bears before they become homeless. The need to protect the natural resources in the Arctic region has come under close watch in recent months as many major oil companies have continued to show an interest in exploring their options. With already record low levels of sea ice occurring, this could mean an even faster depletion of the polar bear's habitat, leading to an increase in cannibalism within the species and threatening their existence.

Maple Seed Drones Will Swarm the Future [Not if enough people *blow them out of the sky.*] 04 Jul 2012 Imagine a cheap, tiny, hovering aerial drone capable of being launched with the flick of a person's wrist and able to provide manipulable 360-degree surveillance views. It's real, it's inspired by maple seeds, and the company behind it, Lockheed Martin, envisions a future in which swarms of the new drones can be deployed at a fraction of the cost and with greater capabilities than drones being used today by the military and other agencies. "Think about dropping a thousand of these out of an aircraft," said Bill Borgia, head of Lockheed Martin's Intelligent Robotics Lab, in a phone interview with TPM.

Iran's state TV accuse BBC of hacking website to change results of nuclear poll 04 Jul 2012 Iran's state TV charged Wednesday that the BBC hacked its website to change the results of a poll about Iran's nuclear program. The BBC denied the allegation. The British broadcaster's Farsi language service reported that the poll showed 63 percent of those who took part favored halting uranium enrichment in exchange for an end to Western economic sanctions. The TV report Wednesday said the actual figure was 24 percent, and the rest favored retaliation against the West with measures like closing the strategic Strait of Hormuz, a key to exporting oil from the Gulf.

Pressure Grows on Obama Administration to Protect Polar Bears

July 5, 2012 by legitgov

Pressure Grows on Obama Administration to Protect Polar Bears (Natural Resources Defense Council) 28 Jun 2012 The United States is in a position to help lead the world in doing just that at the next meeting of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). There's every reason to expect the United States to lead here; two years ago, President Obama sponsored a CITES resolution to end international commercial trade in polar bear parts. But for some reason, the Administration seems to be waffling and calls for Presidential action are growing.

Iran will duplicate captured US RQ-170 spy drone: IRGC cmdr. 03 Jul 2012 A senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says Iran has gained enough information from the US drone it captured last year to duplicate the aircraft.

Rejecting foreign media reports about Iran's inability to decode drone's information, the IRGC commander said the Islamic Republic has already proven its prowess by sending codes which made the drone land on the Iranian soil.

Fukushima radiation sizzling at 10 sieverts in flooded basement of unit 1

July 3, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima radiation sizzling at 10 sieverts in flooded basement of unit 1 29 Jun 2012 Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Wednesday that radiation levels exceeding 10 sieverts have been detected in the flooded basement of reactor 1 at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, a development that will hamper its decommissioning. Radiation from the basement water was found to be as high as 10,300 millisieverts an hour, a deadly intensity that will deliver the maximum annual dose in only 20 seconds and sicken anyone who is exposed within minutes. Tepco said the radiation level in unit 1, the first of the three reactors hit by hydrogen explosions and meltdowns during the crisis, is 10 times higher than in units 2 and 3, which also suffered meltdowns.
