Netanyahu praises Obama's AIPAC speech 04 Mar 2012 Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu immediately responded favorably to US President Barack Obama's speech on Sunday, highlighting Obama's remarks about Israel's right to defend itself as it saw fit. "I appreciated the fact that he said Israel must be able to defend itself, by itself, against any threat," Netanyahu told reporters before meeting Canadian Jewish leaders. "I appreciated the fact that President Obama reiterated his position that Iran must not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons, and that all options are on the table," Netanyahu said. "I also appreciated the fact that he made clear that when it comes to a nuclear-armed Iran, containment is simply not an option."

March 5, 2012 by legitgov

AIPAC turns away 3 journalists from Israel-critical sites 03 Mar 2012 AIPAC turned down requests for coverage of its annual policy conference from at least three web and news sites known for their critical and sometimes hostile coverage of Israel. Patrick Dorton, a spokesman for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, said there were a number of considerations in turning away the journalists, but would only name one -- the volume of applications for coverage. Barring coverage in Washington is rare; Government institutions in Washington are known for accommodating a broad range of journalists, including those adamantly hostile to the government of the day.

March 5, 2012 by legitgov

Deepwater Oil Drilling Picks Up Again as BP Disaster Fades 04 Mar 2012 Nearly two years after an explosion on an oil platform killed 11 workers and sent millions of gallons of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, deepwater drilling has regained momentum in the gulf and is spreading around the world. After a yearlong drilling moratorium, BP and other oil companies [eco-terrorists] are intensifying their exploration and production in the gulf, which will soon surpass the levels attained before the accident. [Thanks, Obusha!] Gas prices are averaging $3.76 a gallon, while crude oil futures settled at $106.70 a barrel on Friday. [Right, because Obama won't take *one step* to curb Wall Street speculation.]

More than half of RAF drone strikes in Afghanistan not reported publicly 03 Mar 2012 More than half of the RAF's drone strikes against Taliban militants in Afghanistan are not reported publicly, a new analysis has revealed. Every week the RAF provides public updates of its operations in Afghanistan, including details about its US-built Reaper drones which are frequently called on to provide cover for troops, monitor the battlefield and hunt down 'Taliban commanders.' But the details of the majority of missions are withheld, despite growing debate about the increasing use of drones and the ethics of relying on unmanned weapon systems.

U.S. Backers of Israel Pressure Obama Over Policy on Iran

March 4, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Backers of Israel Pressure Obama Over Policy on Iran 04 Mar 2012 On the eve of a crucial visit to the White House by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, that country's most powerful American advocates are mounting an extraordinary public campaign to pressure President Obama into hardening American policy toward Iran over its nuclear program. From the corridors of Congress to a gathering of nearly 14,000 American Jews and other supporters of Israel here this weekend, Mr. Obama is being buffeted by demands that the United States be more aggressive toward Iran and more forthright in supporting Israel in its own confrontation with Tehran. Despite the position of the Israelis and the pro-Israel lobbying group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the American intelligence agencies continue to say that there is no evidence that Iran has made a final decision to pursue a nuclear weapon. Recent assessments by American spy agencies have reaffirmed intelligence findings in 2007 and 2010 that concluded that Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program. [Right, so it's time for Israel and the US - the scourge of the planet - to abandon *theirs.*]

US government ultimately paid bail for Egypt NGOs --Amount of bail paid for US citizens was set at about $330,000 each 02 Mar 2012 The bail paid for U.S. 'pro-democracy activists' facing charges in Egypt ultimately came from the U.S. government, the State Department said on Friday. Egyptian authorities had accused the workers, including the son of U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, of working for groups receiving illegal foreign funding and had barred them from leaving the country. The case put at risk $1.3 billion in annual U.S. military aid to Egypt, a cash transfer that began flowing after Egypt made peace with Israel in 1979, and it marked the deepest rift in U.S.-Egyptian relations in decades.

Pakistan criticizes US for rights abuses

Pakistan criticizes US for rights abuses 03 Mar 2012 Pakistan's Ambassador to the United Nations Zamir Akram has criticized the United States for committing numerous human rights violations including those against detainees held in the US's Guantanamo Bay prison facility, Press TV reports. The Pakistani UN envoy slammed the US rights violations at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC). His remarks came following a 2011 report by the United Nations Human Rights Council High Commissioner Navi Pillay on US rights violations. "The OIC states (members of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation) share the High Commissioner’s concern about the rights of detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, as well as her disappointment over the failure to close this detention facility not least because most of the prisoners incarcerated there are Muslims and have been kept in a situation of legal limbo for the past 10 years," Akram said at the UNHRC.

Anonymous Members Infected by Trojan DDOS Utility 03 Mar 2012 Victims of the various cyber-attacks by members of the hacktivist group Anonymous are undoubtedly enjoying a bit of schadenfreude this weekend, as a new report from Symantec indicates that some Anonymous members have been tricked into downloading and running a fairly unpleasant Trojan alongside one of their distributed denial-of-service tools. "In these DDoS attacks, supporters using the Low Orbit Ion Cannon denial-of-service (DoS) tool would voluntarily include their computer in a botnet for attacks in support of Anonymous," Symantec writes.

March 4, 2012 by legitgov

Israel delivers ultimatum to Obama on Iran's nuclear plans --At Monday's meeting between Benjamin Netanyahu and Barack Obama the Israeli prime minister will deliver a stark warning, reports Adrian Blomfield in Jerusalem 03 Mar 2012 When the two men meet in Washington on Monday... this time, perhaps as never before, it is the Israeli who has the upper hand. Exuding confidence, Mr Netanyahu effectively brings with him an ultimatum, demanding that unless the president makes a firm pledge to use US military force to prevent Iran acquiring a nuclear bomb, Israel may well take matters into its own hands within months. The threat is not an idle one. According to sources close to the Israeli security establishment, military planners have concluded that never before has the timing for a unilateral military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities been so auspicious.

He said that the attackers had "full system access" and would have been able to "modify, copy, or delete sensitive files" or "upload hacking tools to steal user credentials and compromise other Nasa systems".

From broken temp sensors to leaky pipes, Fukushima nuke plant plagued with problems [Gee, here's a story you won't see on MSNBC. By all means, let's talk about Rush Limbaugh and birth control instead.] 03 Mar 2012 Nearly a year has passed since the meltdowns at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, and while some progress has been made in decommissioning the power station, operations continue to be plagued with problems from broken temperature sensors to leaky piping. Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) took a major step forward in the decommissioning and dismantling process -- expected to take at least 30 years -- in January when it inserted an endoscope into the plant's No. 2 reactor vessel, beginning the first direct internal observations since the crisis began in March 2011.

Japan-made reactor unit had cracks before delivery to U.S.: regulator 29 Feb 2012 Cracks associated with welding defects were found in a Japan-made steam generator for a nuclear reactor in Southern California in 2009 before its delivery to the plant, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission documents showed Tuesday. The steam generator, produced and later repaired by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., was installed at the unit 3 reactor at the San Onofre nuclear power plant in California, which suffered a minor radiation leak in late January. At the nuclear plant, operated by Southern California Edison, abnormal attrition was also found earlier this month in the tubes of another Mitsubishi-made steam generator installed at the unit 2 reactor.

CIA ex-chief lauds Stuxnet virus use against Iran

March 3, 2012 by legitgov

CIA ex-chief lauds Stuxnet virus use against Iran 03 Mar 2012 A former CIA chief has praised the US use of Stuxnet virus to sabotage Iran's nuclear energy program, noting that the measure legitimized using malware as a weapon to cause destruction. "We have entered into a new phase of conflict in which we use a cyber weapon to create physical destruction," said Michael Hayden, former director of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), in an interview with CBS television to be broadcast on Sunday. "This was a good idea, alright?" he added. The retired US general went on to say that the attempt to disrupt Iran's nuclear energy program by Stuxnet has given legitimacy to the use of malicious software as a new type of warfare.

Asked whether such a strike must be carried out at all, only 19 percent of Israelis favored a strike even in the face of US opposition.

CIA tactics to trap Bin Laden linked with polio crisis, say aid groups

CIA tactics to trap Bin Laden linked with polio crisis, say aid groups 02 Mar 2012 An alliance of 200 US aid groups has written to the head of the CIA to protest against its use of a doctor to help track Osama bin Laden, linking the agency's ploy to the polio crisis in Pakistan. The country recorded the highest number of polio cases in the world last year, a health catastrophe that threatens to spiral out of control. In July the Guardian revealed that the CIA used a Pakistani doctor, Shakil Afridi, in the hunt for Bin Laden. In the weeks before the 3 May operation to kill 'Bin Laden,' Afridi was instructed to set up a fake vaccination scheme in the town of Abbottabad, in order to gain entry to the house where it was suspected that the al-Qaida chief was living, and extract DNA samples from his family members. However the ruse has provided seeming proof for a widely held belief in Pakistan, fuelled by religious extremists, that polio drops are a western conspiracy to sterilise the population.

Alex Jones Cancels Speaking Tour 3 Days After Exposure As Possible STRATFOR Double Agent - Report

March 2, 2012 by legitgov

Alex Jones Cancels Speaking Tour 3 Days After Exposure As Possible STRATFOR Double Agent - Report 28 Feb 2012 Alex Jones cancels American speaking tour after revelations that he may be working for Israeli intelligence agency STRATFOR. On February 12, 2012, David Chase Taylor of Truther.org broke the story that Alex Jones was likely an intelligence tool for STRATFOR, a private intelligence agency located in Austin, Texas. As detailed in the original article, STRATFOR admits to being an intelligence gathering center and therefore it stands to reason that Alex Jones and his affiliates of Inforwars and Prison Planet have likely been gathering intelligence, data and info on patriotic Americans since 1996, coincidently the exact same year that STRATFOR was founded.

Internet Outage at Pentagon

March 2, 2012 by legitgov

Internet Outage at Pentagon 01 Mar 2012 The US military's Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) on Thursday shut down access to the internet and blackberry service while work was being done to fix an unspecified problem [hopefully caused by Anonymous]. The shutdown, which came around 10:00am local time, means that no one in the Pentagon has internet access. Many military downrange, including combatant commands, do not have internet either. DISA, according to its website, is a Defense Department agency that provides command and control support to national-level leaders and joint-war fighters "across the full spectrum of operations."

Five of the six people killed in the storm lived on Brady Street. Their four duplexes simply disappeared, blown off their foundations and disintegrating into the path of debris that stretched across the neighborhood.
