Malaysia is a top US intelligence target, Snowden documents show

March 30, 2014 by legitgov

Ah, then came the dawn. Malaysia is a top US intelligence target, Snowden documents show 30 Mar 2014 Malaysia’s political leadership is a priority intelligence target for the United States and Australia, according to top secret documents published by Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine. Former Malaysian Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi, who served as Malaysian prime minister from October 2003 to April 2009, is listed in an extract from the US National Security Agency's "Target Knowledge Base", a database designed to build up "complete profiles" of high priority intelligence targets. The top secret briefing, created in 2009, indicates that the full list of targeted heads of foreign governments contained 122 names. The final name on the list is Yulia Tymoshenko, who was Ukrainian prime minister at the time. According to Der Spiegel a National Security Agency search program codenamed "Nymrod" enables intelligence analysis to search the database to "find information relating to targets that would otherwise be tough to track down". Each of the names in the database is considered a "SIGINT target" with automated data processing making it possible to manage more than 3 million entries.

U.N. watchdog urges Obama to curb drone use, surveillance

U.N. watchdog urges Obama to curb drone use, surveillance 27 Mar 2014 A U.N. human rights watchdog called on the Obama administration on Thursday to limit its use of drones targeting suspected al-Qaeda and Taliban militants civilians and to curb U.S. surveillance activities at home and abroad. U.S. drone strikes have led to excessive civilian casualties and unrestricted data collection has eroded the right to privacy, the U.N. Human Rights Committee said in its first report on Washington's rights record since 2006. "A lot has to do with lack of transparency and oversight," Swiss lawyer Walter Kaelin, who is among the panel's 18 independent experts, told a news briefing where the findings were issued.

MH370 search: Captain Mark Matthews paints pessimistic assessment of black box search 30 Mar 2014 Finding the black box flight recorder of the missing Malaysia Airlines passenger jet is simply "untenable" as things stand at the moment, the US Navy officer who will lead the search has conceded. The deeply pessimistic assessment from Captain Mark Matthews came as the Royal Australian Navy vessel Ocean Shield was being loaded with a "pinger" locator and an underwater drone critical to recovering the black box. However, ADV Ocean Shield will not arrive in the 319,000 square kilometre search area for three to four days, while the beacon on the black box could have only four days of battery power left.

Marine flashed security badge on Obama trip, bragged of being 'bullet catcher' - witnesses 29 Mar 2014 Military officials said they are investigating the conduct of a U.S. Marine who was on assignment for President Obama's trip to the Netherlands last week, after witnesses said he was talking in detail about his job and passing around his government security badge during a night of drinking at a bar. The Marine, Korey Nathan Pritchett, was first identified by a Dutch newspaper based on witness accounts and smartphone photos taken during the partying, which happened two nights before Obama arrived at The Hague for a nuclear security summit. Pritchett is a security guard at the U.S. Embassy in Monte­negro and reports to the State Department, according to department and military officials.

Libya poised to retake oil ports from rebels in move that could split country 28 Mar 2014 Libyan government forces are poised to attack rebels blockading key oil ports this weekend in an offensive that risks splitting the country apart.

Meanwhile, militias in the western mountain town of Zintan have cut one of Libya's last remaining pipelines, further choking production and leaving the government facing rebellion on two fronts.

March 29, 2014 by legitgov

World's first cyber hijack: Was missing Malaysia Airlines flight hacked with mobile phone? 16 Mar 2014 Intelligence chiefs fear the missing Malaysian airliner was hijacked by hackers taking over the controls using a mobile phone. British anti-terror expert Dr Sally Leivesley said last night: "It might well be the world's first cyber hijack." Dr Leivesley, a former Home Office scientific adviser, said the hackers could change the plane's speed, altitude and direction by sending radio signals to its flight management system. It could then be landed or made to crash by remote control. Possible culprits include criminal gangs, terrorists or a foreign power. ['Foreign power.' Has anyone checked Diego Garcia?]

YouTube ban: How Turkish officials conspired to stage Syria attack to provoke war 28 Mar 2014 "I'll make up a cause of war by ordering a missile attack on Turkey." This leaked conversation is coming back to haunt the highest echelons of the Turkish government as it plans a provocation in Syria, while scrambling to contain social media internally. The leaked audiotapes that reveal Turkey's highest ministers staging an anti-Assad military intervention in Syria, have already caused YouTube to be shut down in the country, as well as leading to fevered accusations of treachery and betrayal of Turkey's political interests -- "a declaration of war," as Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu put it.

California senate suspends three lawmakers in criminal probes

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

California senate suspends three lawmakers in criminal probes 28 Mar 2014 The California state Senate suspended three Democratic lawmakers on Friday who have been the subject of criminal probes, including Leland Yee, who was arrested this week in an FBI sweep on corruption and gun trafficking charges. The Senate voted 28-1 to suspend the three, all of whom have been charged with or convicted of criminal wrongdoing in separate cases, in a move that further erodes what had once been a Democratic two-thirds super-majority in the Senate. The suspensions with pay, the first in state history from the senate, deal a major blow to Democrats in an election year as they seek to use large majorities in both houses of the state legislature and all statewide offices to push through key projects. [That's why Obusha's DOJ went after them. Now, corporate trolls will call the shots - and Obama's fine with that.]

Russian Senator seeks to strip President Obama of Nobel over double standards

Russian Senator seeks to strip President Obama of Nobel over double standards 24 Mar 2014 A Russian senator has asked the Nobel Committee to annul the award given to the US President last year claiming Barack Obama's double standard policy has helped develop the political crisis in Ukraine. "The double standard policy is incompatible with the title of Nobel Peace Prize laureate. I think the Nobel committee must take an objective look at the situation and consider the possibility of taking the title from Barack Obama," Senator Lyudmila Bokova (Saratov Region) was quoted as saying by the Izvestia daily. "The latest statements and activities of Mr. Obama are clearly aimed against the non-violent solution of the Ukrainian crisis. Besides, the US President is pursuing the objective of world domination and the interests of the Ukrainian people is the last thing to be taken into consideration by him," the Russian politician said.

Sources at the highest levels of the US military and intelligence community cite the possibility of a terror bombing, even using nuclear weapons, most likely to be submarine launched.

Christie bridge scandal: Internal report clears governor, but Democrats have questions

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

Christie bridge scandal: Internal report clears governor, but Democrats have questions 28 Mar 2014 It ran hundreds of pages, and found the governor did absolutely nothing wrong, nor did anyone on his current staff. It cost a reported $1 million in taxpayer dollars -- likely much, much more, but no one is saying just how much yet. And it blamed the entire fiasco on two people who were never interviewed. A report commissioned by Gov. Chris Christie to look into the scandals that have engulfed his administration was released Thursday -- after portions of it were leaked earlier in the week -- completely exonerating the governor and drawing immediate criticism from Democrats and others who called it a whitewash.

U.S. will recognize 300 same-sex couples who married in Michigan 28 Mar 2014 The federal government will officially recognize about 300 same-sex couples in Michigan who wed before such marriages were put on hold by the courts, Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. announced Friday. Last Friday, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman struck down Michigan's gay marriage ban but refused to issue the stay.

The appeals court on Tuesday then made the stay permanent, pending a review of the case.

Chris Christie confirms Port Authority chairman David Samson has quit 28 Mar 2014 The governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, announced on Friday that the chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, David Samson, has resigned. Samson refused to be interviewed for an inquiry commissioned by Christie over the politically motivated closure of lanes leading to the George Washington bridge, a key link between New Jersey and New York that comes under the control of the Port Authority, last year. The inquiry, by the law firm Gibson Dunn and Crutcher, published on Thursday, recommended that the Port Authority be reformed. But it left unanswered questions over the role of Samson in the lane closures and their aftermath.
