Military Networks 'Not Defensible,' Says General Who Defends Them

January 15, 2012 by legitgov

Military Networks 'Not Defensible,' Says General Who Defends Them 12 Jan 2012 The Defense Department's networks, as currently configured, are "not defensible," according to the general in charge of protecting those networks. And if there's a major electronic attack on this country, there may not be much he and his men can legally do to stop it in advance. Gen. Keith Alexander, head of both the National Security Agency and the military's new U.S. Cyber Command, has tens of thousands of hackers, cryptologists, and system administrators serving under him. But at the moment, their ability to protect the Defense Department's information infrastructure -- let alone the broader civilian internet -- is limited. The Pentagon's patchwork quilt of 15,000 different networks is too haphazard to safeguard.

Dimon said the bank was exposed to the five countries (PIIGS) to the tune of around $15 billion. [No worries, Jamie. Obusha will bail you out while simultaneously convincing sheeple (and most MSNBC pundits) that he stands with the '99 percent.']

Four GOP candidates blocked on Va. ballot bid --Gingrich, Perry, Santorum, Huntsman won't be listed 13 Jan 2012 A judge has rejected a last-ditch bid by four Republican presidential candidates to get on Virginia's GOP primary ballot, leaving the March 6 contest only to front-runner Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul. In his ruling, federal District Court Judge John A. Gibney Jr. delivered a judicial spanking to the four candidates - former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. - saying their complaint amounts to sour grapes.

Scientists: UN Soldiers Brought Deadly Superbug to Americas

Scientists: UN Soldiers Brought Deadly Superbug to Americas --Haiti had never seen a case of cholera until the arrival of UN peacekeepers. [That's why they went there - to bring it.] 12 Jan 2012 Compelling new scientific evidence suggests United Nations 'peacekeepers' have carried a virulent strain of cholera -- a super bug -- into the Western Hemisphere for the first time. The vicious form of cholera has already killed 7,000 people in Haiti, where it surfaced in a remote village in October 2010. Leading researchers from Harvard Medical School and elsewhere told ABC News that, despite UN denials, there is now a mountain of evidence suggesting the strain originated in Nepal, and was carried to Haiti by Nepalese soldiers who came to Haiti to serve as UN peacekeepers after the earthquake that ravaged the country on Jan. 12, 2010 -- two years ago today.

AP source: House Republicans got discounted loans 14 Jan 2012 Two veteran House Republicans received discounted mortgage loans from the now-defunct Countrywide Financial Corp. under a VIP program, a congressional official said Friday. The discounts went to Reps. Howard McKeon and Elton Gallegly of California, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the loans and requested anonymity. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has been investigating whether members of Congress received VIP discounts. The Associated Press reported previously that four House members had received the discounts.

Israeli intelligence agents 'posed as CIA to recruit operatives against Iran's nuclear program'

January 14, 2012 by legitgov

Israeli intelligence agents 'posed as CIA to recruit operatives against Iran's nuclear program' --The operation - often called a 'false flag' operation - occurred during the presidency [sic] of George W. Bush. 14 Jan 2012 One of the main entities in the Israeli Intelligence Community has been placing its agents within the CIA to recruit operatives against Iran's nuclear program, according to a new report. Mossad officers posed as American CIA agents were recruiting for the Pakistani militant group Jundallah, the report says. The Foreign Policy report details how Mossad officers were equipped with U.S. passports and money, recruiting extremists 'under the nose of U.S. intelligence officers.'

Mossad agents posed as CIA to recruit Jundallah terrorists

January 14, 2012 by legitgov

Mossad agents posed as CIA to recruit Jundallah terrorists 14 Jan 2012 Agents with Israel's Mossad agency posed as American CIA agents in operations to recruit members of the terrorist group Jundallah, a report in Foreign Policy magazine said Friday, AFP reported. Using American dollars and U.S. passports, the agents passed themselves off as members of the Central Intelligence Agency in the operations, notably in London, according to memos from 2007 and 2008, said the report. The Jundallah terrorist group has carried out numerous bombings, assassination attempts, and terrorist attacks in southeast Iran. [So basically, one group of terrorists - MOSSAD - pretended to be another group of terrorists - CIA - who then recruited a *third* group of terrorists - Jundallah. Ok, got it. The bigger question: WHY do US *tax dollars* fund nothing but groups of terrorists? --LRP]

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said his country has obtained "credible documents that prove the terror attack was planned, supervised and supported by the CIA," adding that he has filed an official complaint with the Swiss Embassy in Iran, which is also handles US affairs in the area.

Report: Mossad killed Iranian scientist

January 14, 2012 by legitgov

Report: Mossad killed Iranian scientist 14 Jan 2012 Israel's Mossad was behind the recent killing of a senior Iranian nuclear scientist, Western intelligence sources told Time Magazine. "Like three previous Iranian scientists ambushed on their morning commute, the latest nuclear expert to die on his way to work was a victim of Israel's Mossad," Time reported Saturday. Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was killed by a bomb placed on his car by a motorcyclist in Tehran on Wednesday, prompting officials in Iran to blame Israel for the assassination. "Yeah, one more," a senior Israeli official reportedly told Time in reference to Roshan's killing. "I don't feel sad for him."

UK student faces extradition to US after piracy case ruling

January 14, 2012 by legitgov

UK student faces extradition to US after piracy case ruling --Possible five years in US federal prison for linking 13 Jan 2012 A 23-year-old student is facing extradition to the US, and possibly five years in a federal prison, after the British courts ruled he should face charges of copyright infringement for linking to websites hosting pirated content. Richard O'Dwyer, a computer science student at Sheffield Hallam University who had never even left the North of England before his arrest, set up the TVShack.net website in 2007. When TVShack.net was shut down, as part of a coordinated action, O'Dwyer set up a mirror on the .cc domain, and included the title "F*ck the Police" and a photograph of NWA. The US legal request states that he'll face a maximum of five years in prison if found guilty, and will serve at least 85 per cent of his sentence, as well as "any post conviction and post sentencing confinement Mr O'Dwyer might be subject to in the U.S. federal prison system". O'Dwyer is being extradited under controversial laws agreed by Tony Blair in the wake of the September 11 attacks – then billed as essential to the war on [of] terrorism - which are currently being used to try and extradite Gary McKinnon on hacking charges.

TVShack student Richard O'Dwyer to face US trial

January 14, 2012 by legitgov

TVShack student Richard O'Dwyer to face US trial --A student who created the TVShack website that streamed free films and TV shows online can be extradited to the US for trial, a court ruled today. 13 Jan 2012 Richard O'Dwyer, 23, allegedly earned thousands of pounds through advertising revenue on the site before it was detected and shut down by US authorities. The Sheffield Hallam University undergraduate could be the first British citizen to be extradited for this type of offence, meaning he would effectively be a 'guinea pig' for US copyright law. Mr O'Dwyer's lawyer, Ben Cooper, has argued that the site itself did not store copyrighted material, but instead pointed users in the direction of other sites.

Student faces 10 years in U.S. jail for setting up 'illegal' website (in chilling echo of Gary McKinnon)

Abandoned by British justice: Student faces 10 years in U.S. jail for setting up 'illegal' website (in a chilling echo of Gary McKinnon) --'Quiet and vulnerable' man could spend ten years in high-security American jail after he lost fight against extradition yesterday 14 Jan 2012 A British student faces up to a decade in a U.S. prison for actions which are not even a crime in the UK. Campaigners say Richard O'Dwyer, 23, is being abandoned by his country in the same way as computer hacker Gary McKinnon. Mr O'Dwyer is accused of listing places where films and TV programmes could be illegally downloaded, on a website he ran from his university bedroom in Sheffield... The case has chilling similarities with the attempt by the U.S. to extradite Asperger's sufferer Mr McKinnon, who hacked into Pentagon computers from his north London bedroom.

US Marines grilled over abuse video 14 Jan 2012 US investigators have identified the four Marines seen urinating on Afghan corpses in an inflammatory video and expect to bring charges against them soon, a senior military official told FOX News Channel today. The online video showed the US troops urinating on three bloodied corpses, and one of the men, apparently aware he was being filmed, saying: "Have a great day, buddy," referring to one of the dead. All four are from a sniper unit in the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines based at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, the official said, noting that the two who were questioned by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service are on active duty.

9 eurozone nations downgraded by S&P 13 Jan 2012 Standard & Poor's said Friday that it has downgraded the credit ratings of nine euro area governments, including AAA-rated France and Austria. S&P lowered its rating for Italy, Spain, Portugal and Cyprus by two notches. The move means Italian bonds are now rated BBB+, dangerously close to the junk bond level that could make it even harder for the government to raise money. France's top-tier credit rating was lowered by one notch to AA+, said S&P.

Four US suspects nabbed in Baghdad --The US Embassy in Baghdad has declined comment on the incident, which is seen as a violation of a security pact signed between Baghdad and Washington. 12 Jan 2012 Iraqi authorities have detained four armed American nationals over what the officials described as "suspicious" activity in the capital, Baghdad, Press TV reports. Iraqi sources said the suspects, including two women, were arrested on Thursday as they were found traveling in a BMW car with a local license plate, instead of diplomatic registration. The US nationals were wearing flak jackets and were armed with pistols -- equipped with silencers -- and automatic weapons when they were arrested in a Shia neighborhood in central Baghdad.

FBI agent admits deleting emails amid terror probe --FBI agent was member of so-called "dirty" team that did an initial intelligence-gathering interview of Ahmed without reading him his Miranda rights 12 Jan 2012 An FBI agent testified Thursday that she deleted potentially sensitive emails covering several months when she was helping spearhead an investigation of a terror suspect. Defense attorneys have sought to examine FBI emails to see if they reveal agents skirted interrogation rules in the case of Mohamed Ibrahim Ahmed, an Eritrean man charged in Manhattan federal court with supporting terrorism. Ahmed's lawyers have asked U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel to bar statements made by Ahmed while he was detained in Nigeria in 2009 before being turned over to U.S. authorities.

U.S. troops quietly surge into Middle East

January 13, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. troops quietly surge into Middle East 12 Jan 2012 The Pentagon has quietly shifted combat troops and warships to the Middle East after the top American commander in the region warned that he needed additional forces to deal with Iran and other potential threats, U.S. officials said. Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis, who heads U.S. Central Command, won White House approval for the deployments late last year after talks with the government in Baghdad broke down over keeping U.S. troops in Iraq, but the extent of the Pentagon moves is only now becoming clear. The Pentagon has stationed nearly 15,000 troops in Kuwait, adding to a small contingent already there. The new units include two Army infantry brigades and a helicopter unit - a substantial increase in combat power after nearly a decade in which Kuwait chiefly served as a staging area for supplies and personnel heading to Iraq.

January 13, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Sends Top Iranian Leader a Warning on Strait Threat 13 Jan 2012 The Obama administration is relying on a secret channel of communication to warn Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, that closing the Strait of Hormuz is a "red line" that would provoke an American response, according to United States government officials. The officials declined to describe the unusual contact between the two governments, and whether there had been an Iranian reply. Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said this past weekend that the United States would "take action and reopen the strait," which could be accomplished only by military means, including minesweepers, warship escorts and potentially airstrikes.
