Suspect in Benghazi attack found dead 14 Jul 2014 Faraj al-Shibli, who was suspected of involvement in the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, has been found dead, a Libyan source and locals in the town of Marj said. Al-Shibli, whose name is also spelled Chalabi, was last seen being detained by a local militia in Marj two days ago, a Libyan source said. It is unclear what happened to al-Shibli since then, but his body was found Monday in the eastern Libyan town of Marj.

Air Force seeks bids for $550M next generation stealth bomber

July 15, 2014 by legitgov

Air Force seeks bids for $550M next generation stealth bomber 14 Jul 2014 The U.S. Air Force's super-secret next generation bomber, which one day could fly unmanned sorties, has moved a step closer to the production line with the Pentagon asking top defense contractors to submit proposals. Not much is known about the Long Range Strike-Bomber project, which has been run as a classified program since 2011. But the bat-winged stealth bombers would likely cost around $550 million each, and the Air Force hopes to contract for as many as 100. That would add up to as much as $55 billion -- for a fleet of fighter planes the likes of which the world has never seen. [But we can't get a bridge repaired or a pothole filled, though, right? Start reading.]

Militia shells Tripoli airport, U.N. pulls staff out of Libya 14 Jul 2014 A militia shelled Tripoli airport, destroying 90 percent of planes parked there, a Libyan government spokesman said, as heavy fighting between armed groups prompted the United Nations to pull its staff out of the North African country. At least 15 people have been killed in clashes in Tripoli and the eastern city of Benghazi since Sunday, and a Libyan official said several Grad rockets hit the Tripoli International Airport on Monday, damaging the control tower. Government spokesman Ahmed Lamine said 90 percent of the planes parked at the airport were destroyed.

Protesters offer Paulsboro tap water to Gov. Chris Christie

July 15, 2014 by legitgov

Protesters offer Paulsboro tap water to Gov. Chris Christie 14 Jul 2014 Minutes before Gov. Chris Christie's entourage drove into the Port of Paulsboro, two women and their children -- who had planned to offer the governor some of the borough's water -- were escorted off the property. Aliyiah Jones and Lovis Watts, along with their adolescent children, showed up at the press event to protest the condition of the town's air and water, which they say is unsafe to breathe or drink. Jones, a Jefferson Street resident, said she moved to Paulsboro when she heard about the promising job prospects at the Marine Terminal, but a 2012 train derailment -- which spilled thousands of pounds of a dangerous chemical into the air -- and the recent information regarding PFNA (Perfluorononanoic acid) contamination in the borough's water have left her distraught and without somewhere to turn for help.

NSA: Releasing Snowden Emails Would Violate His Privacy

NSA: Releasing Snowden Emails Would Violate His Privacy [Insert eye-roll *here.*] 14 Jul 2014 The National Security Agency says it can't release emails sent by exiled whistleblower Edward Snowden to NSA officials because doing so would invade his personal privacy. That rationale was one of several given to blogger Matthew Keys, formerly social media editor at Reuters, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request that sought emails sent from ejsnowd@nsa.ic.gov in the first five months of 2013. Keys published the NSA's response on Thursday.

Progressives turn from Obama to embrace Warren 14 Jul 2014 Populist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) got a rock-star reception during a standing-room-only campaign rally here Monday, as hundreds of liberal activists cheered her broadsides against corporate interests and voiced hopes that her presence might shift the political winds in an increasingly Republican state. The rally on behalf of Senate candidate Natalie Tennant was the latest in a string of recent Warren appearances in red and blue states alike, where Democratic base voters have embraced her fiery message as an envoy to working-class voters frustrated with both Wall Street and the Obama administration.

Emails shed new light on UK link to CIA 'torture flights' 14 Jul 2014 Crucial logs revealing flights to a British overseas territory when it was allegedly used as a secret US prison are in the possession of the police, the Observer has learned. The revelation has raised concerns about why, despite repeated demands, details of the flights have not been shared with lawyers and MPs, who for years have been investigating the role played by Diego Garcia, an atoll in the Indian ocean, in the CIA's extraordinary rendition programme. A Whitehall official was photographed last week carrying documents marked "sensitive" confirming that the logs recording details of planes landing and taking off at the atoll have been handed to detectives.

July 14, 2014 by legitgov

Palestinian Authority asks United Nations for protection in Gaza --So far, there have been no Israeli deaths in the conflict. 14 Jul 2014 Israel's week-long offensive against the Gaza Strip has killed at least 175 people, mostly civilians, prompting the Palestinian Authority to appeal Monday for United Nations protection of the densely populated coastal region. The rising death toll, combined with more than 1,200 Palestinians injured, has also led to the Israeli military appointing a senior officer, Maj. Gen. Noam Tibon, to investigate reports of extensive civilian fatalities and damage from airstrikes carried out largely to counter the more than 1,000 rockets fired by militants at Israel.

July 14, 2014 by legitgov

'Israel drops cancer-inducing bombs on Gazans' 13 Jul 2014 A Norwegian doctor in the besieged Gaza Strip has strongly criticized Israel for using cancer-inducing bombs against Palestinian civilians. Dr. Erik Fosse told Press TV that the majority of patients hospitalized in Gaza are civilians injured in attacks on their homes and about thirty percent of them are children. Dense Inert Metal Explosive, known as DIME, is an explosive device developed to minimize collateral damage in warfare. Experts say it has a relatively small but effective blast radius and is believed to have strong biological effects on those who are hit by the bomb's micro-shrapnel.

Doubts over ice wall to keep Fukushima safe from damaged nuclear reactors 13 Jul 2014 In fading light and just a stone's throw from the most terrifying scenes during Japan's the world's worst nuclear accident, engineers resumed their race against time to defeat the next big threat: thousands of tonnes of irradiated water. If all goes to plan, by next March Fukushima Daiichi's four damaged reactors will be surrounded by an underground frozen wall that will be a barrier between highly toxic radioactive water used to cool melted fuel inside reactor basements and clean groundwater flowing in from surrounding hills. Last month, Japan's nuclear regulators voiced concern at the failure to freeze the water in the trenches.

The prime minister spoke as Israeli ground troops moved into the Gaza Strip early Sunday for the first time in the increasing bloody battle with Palestinians.

NORAD: Fighter jets scrambled after Russian bombers spotted off California 13 Jul 2014 Authorities say two F-22 fighter jets were scrambled after a pair of Russian bombers were spotted 50 miles off the coast of California earlier this week, Reuters reported, citing a NORAD spokesperson. Major Beth Smith, of North American Aerospace Defense Command, said that the long-range Russian bombers never officially entered U.S. airspace when two NORAD fighter jets made visual contact with them. The incident occurred about five hours after four Russian bombers and a refueling tanker were seen entering the so-called Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), airspace that extends about 200 miles from the U.S. coast.

Edward Snowden condemns Britain's emergency surveillance bill 13 Jul 2014 The NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has condemned the new surveillance bill being pushed through the UK's parliament this week, expressing concern about the speed at which it is being done, lack of public debate, fear-mongering and what he described as increased powers of intrusion. In an exclusive interview with the Guardian in Moscow, Snowden said it was very unusual for a public body to pass an emergency law such as this in circumstances other than a time of total war...Suddenly it is a priority, he said, after the government had ignored it for an entire year. "It defies belief."

US military studied how to influence Twitter users in Darpa-funded research --Defense Department spent millions to research social networks 08 Jul 2014 The activities of users of Twitter and other social media services were recorded and analysed as part of a major project funded by the US military, in a program that covers ground similar to Facebook's controversial experiment into how to control emotions by manipulating news feeds. Research funded directly or indirectly by the US Department of Defense's military research department, known as Darpa, has involved users of some of the internet’s largest destinations, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Kickstarter, for studies of social connections and how messages spread...Several of the DoD-funded studies went further than merely monitoring what users were communicating on their own, instead messaging unwitting participants in order to track and study how they responded.

Arturo the Polar Bear - 'world's saddest animal' alone in scorching desert zoo --Experts say the bear is zombie-like and fear he is going insane. 12 Jul 2014 Arturo the polar bear lies slumped in his misery -- battling the searing heat of a desert zoo, reports the Sunday People. His shaggy white coat is perfectly ­suited to icy conditions as low as minus 40C in his Arctic circle habitat. But it is hell in this concrete enclosure at Argentina's Mendoza Zoo, where the temperature can reach 40C (104F). Animal rights campaigners are now desperately trying to get him moved from the zoo, situated in the capital of Mendoza Province, to somewhere offering cooler conditions. #FreeArturo #LiberenAArturo #Arturo2Canda
