April 18, 2012 by legitgov

NY law would identify buildings with smokers --'Smoking kills and people have the right to know if they are going to be exposed to secondhand smoke.' 18 Apr 2012 New York apartment buildings that permit smoking would be identified under a new law proposed Wednesday by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Landlords of buildings with three or more units would have to inform prospective tenants and purchasers whether smoking was allowed in apartments and on balconies, as well as in common outdoor areas like rooftops. Bloomberg said this would give potential renters the chance to choose a smoke-free environment, free from wafts of cigarette smoke from other apartments.

U.S. troops posed with body parts of Afghan insurgents

April 18, 2012 by legitgov

Another day, another Pentagon-penned episode of 'Criminal Minds:' U.S. troops posed with body parts of Afghan insurgents 18 Apr 2012 The paratroopers were assigned to check reports that Afghan police had recovered the mangled remains of an insurgent suicide bomber; try to get iris scans and fingerprints for identification. The 82nd Airborne Division soldiers arrived at the police station in Afghanistan's Zabol province in February 2010. They inspected the body parts. Then, the paratroopers posed for photos next to Afghan police, grinning while some held - and others squatted beside - the corpse's severed legs. A few months later, the same platoon was dispatched to investigate the remains of three 'insurgents' who Afghan police said had accidentally blown themselves up. After obtaining a few fingerprints, they posed next to the remains, again grinning and mugging for photographs. Two soldiers posed holding a dead man's hand with the middle finger raised. A soldier leaned over the bearded corpse while clutching the man's hand. Someone placed an unofficial platoon patch reading "Zombie Hunter" next to other remains and took a picture.

U.S. suggests no emissions limits to protect polar bears

April 18, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. suggests no emissions limits to protect polar bears [I Really Hated Bush but Obama is Actually Worse.] 17 Apr 2012 Polar bears are skating on thin ice in Alaska these days: Warming temperatures have resulted in dramatic shrinkage of sea ice, leaving the bears with fewer ice floes on which to rest and hunt seals. But at least for the moment, the Endangered Species Act won't be used to control the greenhouse gas emissions that conservationists say are contributing to climate change and posing one of the biggest threats to the bears' survival. The Obama administration on Tuesday released a proposed rule that -- like an earlier version put forward under President [sic] George W. Bush -- exempts operations outside the bears' normal territory from restrictions on activities.

CISPA draft allows Internet companies to share customer data and communications with NSA

April 18, 2012 by legitgov

CISPA draft allows Internet companies to share customer data and communications with NSA 16 Apr 2012 New revisions to a proposed federal cybersecurity law still would permit Internet companies to hand over confidential customer records and communications to the National Security Agency. A recent torrent of criticism prompted the politicians behind the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act to circulate a revised version of CISPA this evening before an expected floor vote next week. But the authors made only relatively minor tweaks. The legislation remains so broad that the NSA could vacuum up "all sorts of sensitive information like Internet use information and the contents of e-mails," ACLU legislative counsel Michelle Richardson told CNET.

Anonymous downs Home Office site for second time

April 18, 2012 by legitgov

Anonymous downs Home Office site for second time 16 Apr 2012 Anonymous has brought down the Home Office website for the second time, even though the department had prior warning of the hacking collective's campaign of weekend attacks. A flood of traffic sent to Homeoffice.gov.uk led to intermittent outages on Saturday, but did not compromise internal systems, the government department said on Monday. Last weekend, the Anonymous group launched its Operation Trial at Home (OpTrialatHome) campaign to protest the extradition treaty the UK has with the US. NASA hacker Gary McKinnon, TVShack website operator Stephen O'Dwyer and Christopher Tappin have been affected by the treaty, which critics see as unbalanced.

Fukushima damage leaves spent fuel at risk-U.S. lawmaker --Spent fuel rods need to be moved to safety-Wyden 16 Apr 2012  Japan, with assistance from the U.S. government, needs to do more to move spent fuel rods out of harm's way at the wrecked Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, said U.S. Senator Ron Wyden on Monday. Wyden, a senior Democratic senator on the Senate Energy committee, toured the ruined Fukushima plant on April 6, and said the damage was far worse than he expected. "Seeing the extent of the disaster first-hand during my visit conveyed the magnitude of this tragedy and the continuing risks and challenges in a way that news accounts cannot," said Wyden in a letter to Ichiro Fujisaki, Japan's ambassador to the United States.

The suits had not yet been filed, he said, but would be pursued with the aid of Norman Siegel, a lawyer who once was director of the New York Civil Liberties Union.

In Senate, Republicans Block Debate on 'Buffett Rule' --CNN poll puts support of 'Buffett Rule' at 72 percent, including 53 percent of Republicans 17 Apr 2012 Senate Republicans on Monday blocked a move to open debate on the so-called Buffett Rule, ensuring that a measure pressed for months by President Obama and Senate Democrats to ensure that the superrich pay a tax rate of at least 30 percent will not come to a decisive vote. But the fierce debate preceding the 51-45 vote - the Democrats were nine votes short of the 60 they needed - set off a week of political wrangling over taxes.

Pentagon Expands Personnel Probe in Colombia

Pentagon Expands Personnel Probe in Colombia 16 Apr 2012 The Pentagon is investigating the involvement of U.S. military personnel in misconduct involving prostitution in Colombia before President Barack Obama arrived for a summit, an incident that the top armed forces commander said left the service "embarrassed." The scandal, which prompted the recall of 11 Secret Service agents to the U.S., also ensnared members of the military who were in the resort city of Cartagena, Colombia, as part of the preparation for Obama’s arrival at the Summit of the America’s during the weekend. "We are embarrassed," Army General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a Pentagon briefing today.

Republicans reject 'Buffett rule' in the Senate

April 17, 2012 by legitgov

Republicans reject 'Buffett rule' in the Senate 16 Apr 2012 Republican-led opposition blocked the 'Buffett rule' from advancing in the Senate, turning back an election year effort by President Obama to slap a new tax rate on those earning beyond $1 million a year. Nearly all Republicans voted against the measure, a potentially risky move at a time when 60% of voters support the measure, according to a recent Gallup poll, as a way to ensure wealthy Americans pay their fair share of taxes. Democrats are likely to revive the effort in coming months. "Continuing to allow some of the wealthiest Americans to use special tax breaks to avoid paying their fair share simply cannot be justified," the White House said in a statement before the vote. [Right, neither can the NDAA - indefinite detention without charge or trial for US citizens. Ergo, we're not fooled by Obusha's pseudo-liberalism. --LRP]

April 16, 2012 by legitgov

Thousands of Troops Could Remain in Afghanistan Long After 2014 --'Thousands of U.S. troops could remain in harm's way well after the end of combat operations in 2014.' 12 Apr 2012 Adm. Bill McRaven, the head of U.S. special operations, is mapping out a potential Afghanistan war plan that would replace thousands of U.S. troops with small special operations teams paired with Afghans to help an inexperienced Afghan force withstand a Taliban onslaught as U.S. troops withdraw. If approved by the administration, the pared-down structure could become the enduring force that Afghan Defense Minister Abdul Rahim Wardak indicated Tuesday at the Pentagon that his country needs US military contractors want, possibly long after the U.S. drawdown date of 2014.

Obama's remarks came after Rep Darrell Issa, claimed the scandal was likely not the first time members of the president's protection team have invited prostitutes back to their rooms.

Is Secret Service scandal hyped so calls emerge to 'privatize' it? By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 16 Apr 2012 Is the Secret Service scandal paving the way for hypocritical sociopaths in Congress to call for military contractors to 'protect' the president and other key government officials? That way, Blackwater -- or al-CIAduh -- could arrange to kill (and blame) whoever they want and not even need to carry out another 9/11 to serve as a pretext to start more wars. Today, we read: 'Angry' Obama blasts Secret Service agents 'who slept with Colombian prostitutes' as Congressman says agency is covering up MORE scandals --Several of the 11 men sent home are married; two are supervisors --All the agents have been suspended pending investigation --Hotel employee claimed that the men were drinking heavily 16 Apr 2012 President Barack Obama said yesterday that 'of course I'll be angry' if allegations that Secret Service agents hired prostitutes are proven true by an investigation...

Israeli TV report shows air force gearing-up for Iran attack, says moment of truth is near

April 16, 2012 by legitgov

Israeli TV report shows air force gearing-up for Iran attack, says moment of truth is near 15 Apr 2012 A major Israel TV station on Sunday night broadcast a detailed report on how Israel will go about attacking Iran's nuclear facilities in the event that diplomacy and sanctions fail and Israel decides to carry out a military strike. The report, screened on the main evening news of Channel 10, was remarkable both in terms of the access granted to the reporter, who said he had spent weeks with the pilots and other personnel he interviewed, and in the fact that his assessments on a strike were cleared by the military censor. In the event that negotiations [in May] fail and the order is given for Israel to carry out an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, "dozens if not more planes" will take part in the mission: attack and escort jets, tankers for mid-air refueling, electronic warfare planes and rescue helicopters, the report said.
