Fukushima exceeds Chernobyl in radiation level 01 Sep 2011 A map drawn up by the Japanese Government shows, that soil at 34 spots in six Prefecture municipalities around the Fukushima power plant, are contaminated with radioactive cesium. These levels are higher than the Chernobyl disaster standard used for forcible evacuations. A soil contamination map released by Japan's Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Ministry, shows six municipalities have more than 1.48 million becquerels of cesium 137, per square meter.

September 1, 2011 by legitgov

Fukushima Daiichi Death Not Related to Plant Work - Tepco 31 Aug 2011 When Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Tuesday that a male employee in his 40s died of acute leukemia after working at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, the news was as chilling as it was tragic, heightening concerns about the safety of plant workers. But the troubled operator of the even more troubled nuclear plant said that the cause of the death of the former laborer was unrelated to his brief stint at the facility early this month. The unidentified worker was assigned to Fukushima Daiichi for about a week in early August by a subcontracting company.

How US firms profited from torture flights

How US firms profited from torture flights --Court documents illustrate how US contracted out secret rendition transportation to a network of private companies 31 Aug 2011 The scale of the CIA's rendition programme has been laid bare in court documents that illustrate in minute detail how the US contracted out the secret transportation of suspects to a network of private American companies. The manner in which American firms flew terrorism suspects to locations around the world, where they were often tortured, has emerged after one of the companies sued another in a dispute over fees. As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, the mass of invoices, receipts, contracts and email correspondence -- submitted as evidence to a court in upstate New York -- provides a unique glimpse into a world in which the "war on terror" became just another charter opportunity for American businesses.

WikiLeaks: US troops executed 10 Iraqi civilians, including elderly woman and infant

WikiLeaks: US troops executed 10 Iraqi civilians, including elderly woman and infant --US officials denied at the time that anything inappropriate had occurred. [Apparently, it's APPROPRIATE to shoot a 5-month-old infant in the head, US tax dollars at work. And, btw: Some US troops really ARE 'baby killers,' aren't they? --LRP] 01 Sep 2011 A cable in the latest tranche of documents released suggests US troops executed 10 Iraqi civilians, including an elderly woman and an infant, before bombing to destroy the evidence. The controversial ['Controversial?' It's a WAR CRIME.] 2006 incident in the central Iraqi town of Ishaqi involved the execution-style murder of 10 civilians including a woman in her 70s and a 5-month-old infant. The unclassified cable, which was posted on WikiLeaks' website last week, contained questions from a United Nations investigator about the incident, which had angered local Iraqi officials, who demanded some kind of action from their government. US officials denied at the time that anything inappropriate had occurred.

N.Y. billing dispute reveals details of secret CIA rendition flights

September 1, 2011 by legitgov

N.Y. billing dispute reveals details of secret CIA rendition flights --The CIA's Rendition Group, a division of the agency’s CounterTerrorism Center, was tasked with finding terrorism suspects, orchestrating their capture and transferring them for interrogation torture to covert prison sites --'We were transporting government personnel and their invitees.' 31 Aug 2011 The August 2003 flights -- and dozens of others to locations such as Bucharest, Romania; Baku, Azerbaijan; Cairo; Djibouti; Islamabad, Pakistan; and Tripoli, Libya -- were organized by Sportsflight, a one-man aircraft brokerage business on Long Island. It secured a plane from Richmor Aviation, based near the Columbia County Airport in Hudson, N.Y. Richmor eventually sued Sportsflight for breach of contract. In the process, the costs and itineraries of numerous CIA flights became part of the court record... The more than 1,500 pages from the trial and appeals court files appear to include sensitive material, such as logs of air-to-ground phone calls made from the plane. These logs show multiple calls to CIA headquarters; to the cell- and home phones of a senior CIA official involved in the rendition program; and to a government contractor, Falls Church-based DynCorp, that worked for the CIA. [See: DynCorp Disgrace By Kelly Patricia O'Meara 14 Jan 2002 Middle-aged men having sex with 12- to 15-year-olds was too much for Ben Johnston, a hulking 6-foot-5-inch Texan, and more than a year ago he blew the whistle on his employer, DynCorp, a U.S. contracting company doing business in Bosnia.]

Obama Bows to GOP (As Always), Moves Jobs Speech --Obusha caves to his GOP/corpora-terrorist overlords *again.* Now, Obama the Moron competes for the nation's attention with the opening of the 2011 NFL season. Stupid is as stupid does. 01 Sep 2011 President Obama, bowing to the complaints of House Speaker John Boehner and other Republicans, has moved his 'jobs' speech before a joint session of Congress back one day, to Thursday, Sept. 8.

WikiLeaks releases mystery file

September 1, 2011 by legitgov

WikiLeaks releases mystery file 31 Aug 2011 WikiLeaks released a mysterious encrypted file on Wednesday after telling its followers on Twitter to stand by for "an important announcement." WikiLeaks did not identify the contents of the 571 megabyte file and it could not be opened without a decryption key, which the anti-secrecy website said would be released "at the appropriate moment." In July of last year, WikiLeaks posted what it called an "insurance file," which was also encrypted.

US, Australia 'schemed against IAEA chief'

August 31, 2011 by legitgov

US, Australia 'schemed against IAEA chief' 31 Aug 2011 The US and Australia schemed unsuccessfully in 2005 to block Mohamed ElBaradei's election to a third term as head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a newly leaked US diplomatic cable shows. Both countries were unhappy with Mr ElBaradei's "unhelpful" response to Iran's nuclear program, but the bid to prevent his re-election to the nuclear regulatory agency's leadership ultimately failed for lack of international support. The February 18, 2005, State Department cable released by WikiLeaks overnight opens a window into the effort, describing a lunch conversation between Australian officials and a US special envoy for nuclear non-proliferation, Jackie Sanders.

Up to $60 billion in war funds said wasted

August 31, 2011 by legitgov

Up to $60 billion in war funds said wasted 31 Aug 2011 As much as $60 billion in U.S. funds has been lost to waste and fraud in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade through lax oversight of contractors, poor planning and corruption, an independent panel investigating U.S. wartime spending estimates. In its final report to Congress, the Commission on Wartime Contracting said the figure could grow as U.S. support for reconstruction projects and programs wanes, leaving both countries to bear the long-term costs of sustaining the schools, medical clinics, barracks, roads and power plants already built with American tax dollars. [Notice that GOP/Obusha never allocate funds to 'sustain schools, medical clinics, barracks, roads and power plants with American tax dollars' in the US? That's because foreign 'reconstruction' funds go directly to US corpora-terrorists --as intended.]

August 31, 2011 by legitgov

This month America's deadliest in long Afghan war 30 Aug 2011 August has become the deadliest month yet for U.S. forces in the nearly 10-year-old war in Afghanistan, increasing pressure on the Obama administration to bring troops home sooner rather than later.

Irene causes Vermont's worst flooding in 83 years 29 Aug 2011 Sandbags and crossed fingers did little to ward off the raging rivers that drowned Vermont in mud and debris after Hurricane Irene dumped 15 inches of rain on the state this weekend.
