CIA Prepares to Launch Drone Strikes in Yemen

June 14, 2011 by legitgov

CIA Prepares to Launch Drone Strikes in Yemen 13 Jun 2011 The Central Intelligence Agency plans to use armed drones to try to kill 'al Qaeda' militants in Yemen, where months of antigovernment protests, an armed revolt and the attempted assassination of the president have left a power vacuum, U.S. officials say. The CIA program will be a major expansion of U.S. counterterrorism efforts in Yemen. Since December 2009, U.S. strikes in Yemen have been carried out by the U.S. military with intelligence support from CIA. The U.S. military strikes have been conducted with the permission of the Yemeni government regime. [1) Hasn't the US been bombing Yemen all along? 2) Isn't it odd that every dictatorship-for-oil the US supports is referred to in the media as a 'government,' but every democratically elected leader the US opposes is referred to as a 'regime?' We're on to the grammar games, and will participate in the inverse. --LRP]

June 14, 2011 by legitgov

Obama On Weiner Scandal: "If It Was Me, I Would Resign" 13 Jun 2011 Talking with the Today Show on Monday, President Barack Obama said that if he was Congressman Anthony Weiner, he would resign from Congress following disclosures this week about Weiner's online sexual activity. "I can tell you that if it was me, I would resign," said Obama to Curry during the interview. According to a White House spokesman, Obama also called Weiner's sexting scandal "inappropriate" and a "distraction" while speaking with reporters aboard Air Force One Monday. [Of course, cowering before Fox News, if one of Obusha's GOP overlords was in the same situation as Weiner, Obama would have remained *silent.*]

Hackers break into Senate computers

June 14, 2011 by legitgov

Hackers break into Senate computers 13 Jun 2011 The Sergeant at Arms Office confirmed on Monday that the Senate's website had been hacked this past weekend and that it has ordered a review of all Senate computer sites. The revelation came after a loosely aligned group of computer hackers calling themselves Lulz Security said they broke into the Senate's computer network. "We don't like the U.S. government very much," Lulz Security said at the top of their release. "This is a small, just-for-kicks release of some internal data from Senate.gov - is this an act of war, gentlemen? Problem?" The comment refers to reports that the military had decided that it could respond to cyber attacks from foreign countries with traditional military force. [LulzSec, you *rock!*]

Missing $6.6 billion for Iraq may have been stolen, auditors say

June 13, 2011 by legitgov

Oops! Missing $6.6 billion for Iraq may have been stolen, auditors say --Special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction said missing $6.6 billion may be 'largest theft of funds in national history' 13 Jun 2011 After the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003, the George W. Bush regime flooded the conquered country with so much cash to pay for 'reconstruction' and other projects [dog leashes for Abu Ghraib] in the first year that a new unit of measurement was born. Pentagon officials determined that one giant C-130 Hercules cargo plane could carry $2.4 billion in shrink-wrapped bricks of $100 bills. They sent an initial full planeload of cash, followed by 20 other flights to Iraq by May 2004 in a $12-billion haul that U.S. officials believe to be the biggest international cash airlift of all time. For the first time, federal auditors are suggesting that some or all of the $6.6 billion in cash may have been stolen, not just mislaid in an accounting error. [LOL! How would you 'mislay' 6.6 billion dollars, anyway?]

House ethics committee begins inquiry on Rep. Weiner 13 Jun 2011 The House ethics committee reportedly has begun a preliminary inquiry into the actions of Rep. Anthony Weiner, the embattled New York Democrat who has admitted to inappropriate relationships with women on Twitter and Facebook. Unnamed House officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Associated Press that committee leaders have not indicated whether they will move to a more intensive staff investigation of Weiner, who has resisted calls from top Democratic leaders to resign. The ethics news comes as House Majority Leader [hypocritical sociopath] Eric Cantor said today that Democrats should strip Weiner of his committee assignments if the congressman doesn't leave. [Three words: Senator David Vitter.]

Also, operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said six more workers have received more than the permitted annual emergency levels of radiation exposure. The Strontium-89 and Strontium-90 isotopes are believed to have been released from the damaged reactors when the fuel cores overheated and melted after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, Tokyo Electric, also known Tepco, said at a briefing.
