May 15, 2012 by legitgov

Anonymous: 'We have access to every classified database in the US' 14 May 2012 Businesses have suggested it. The government has all but confirmed it. And according to one alleged member, they both might very well be right. A hacker tied to Anonymous says the loose-knit collective may be the most powerful organization on Earth. "The entire world right now is run by information," Chris Doyon tells Postmedia News from an undisclosed location in Canada... In a world where the most critical of information isn't locked up in vaults but instead encoded in easily obtainable binary, Doyon says that crackers like those in Anonymous are in possession of some of the most powerful knowledge known to man.

U.S. May Scrap Costly Efforts to Train Iraqi Police

May 14, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. May Scrap Costly Efforts to Train Iraqi Police --Since 2003, the American government has US taxpayers have spent nearly $8 billion training the Iraqi police. 13 May 2012 In the face of spiraling costs and Iraqi officials who say they never wanted it in the first place, the State Department has slashed - and may jettison entirely by the end of the year - a multibillion-dollar 'police training program' that was to have been the centerpiece of a hugely expanded civilian mission here. The 'training' effort, which began in October and has already cost $500 million, was conceived of as the largest component of a 'mission' billed as the most ambitious American aid effort since the Marshall Plan. [$8 billion spent pretending to train Iraqi police -- aka one big bl*wjob for US mercenaries -- but we can't get single-payer health care. Notice that there were no hypocritical sociopaths whining about the deficit when Bush was exploding it? Start reading.]

U.S. Military Taught Officers: Use 'Hiroshima' Tactics for 'Total War' on Islam

U.S. Military Taught Officers: Use 'Hiroshima' Tactics for 'Total War' on Islam 10 May 2012 The U.S. military taught its future leaders that a "total war" against the world's 1.4 billion Muslims would be necessary to protect America from Islamic terrorists, according to documents obtained by Danger Room. Among the options considered for that conflict: using the lessons of "Hiroshima" to wipe out whole cities at once, targeting the "civilian population wherever necessary." The course, first reported by Danger Room last month and held at the Defense Department's Joint Forces Staff College, has since been canceled by the Pentagon brass. Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley's Joint Staff Forces College presentation on 'A Counter-Jihad Op Design Model' calls for violent measures in a war against Islam.

Game Over for the Climate

May 14, 2012 by legitgov

Game Over for the Climate By James Hansen 10 May 2012 Global warming isn't a prediction. It is happening. That is why I was so troubled to read a recent interview with President Obama in Rolling Stone in which he said that Canada would exploit the oil in its vast tar sands reserves "regardless of what we do." If Canada proceeds, and we do nothing, it will be game over for the climate. Canada's tar sands, deposits of sand saturated with bitumen, contain twice the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by global oil use in our entire history. If we were to fully exploit this new oil source, and continue to burn our conventional oil, gas and coal supplies, concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere eventually would reach levels higher than in the Pliocene era, more than 2.5 million years ago, when sea level was at least 50 feet higher than it is now.

US spy agency can keep mum on Google ties: court 11 May 2012 The top-secret US National Security Agency is not required to reveal any deal it may have with Google to help protect against cyber attacks, an appeals court ruled Friday.

The ruling came in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from a public interest group, which said the public has a right to know about any spying on citizens.

In film, Walker talks of 'divide and conquer' union strategy 10 May 2012 A filmmaker released a video Thursday that shows Gov. [sociopath] Scott Walker saying he would use "divide and conquer" as a strategy against unions. Walker made the comments to Beloit billionaire Diane Hendricks, who has since given $510,000 to the governor's campaign - making her Walker's single-largest donor and the largest known donor to a candidate in state history. In the video shot on Jan. 18, 2011 - shortly before Walker's controversial budget-repair destruction bill was introduced and spawned mass protests - Hendricks asked the governor whether he could make Wisconsin a "completely red state, and work on these unions, and become a right-to-work" state. Walker replied that his "first step" would be "to divide and conquer" through his budget-adjustment bill, which curtailed most collective bargaining for most public employee unions.

2,300 birds found dead along Chilean beaches 12 May 2012 Chilean officials are asking fishermen to help save birds caught in nets after thousands of dead fowl appeared along coastal Chile this week.
