June 4, 2015 by legitgov

FBI says privacy must take backseat to national security in online fight against ISIS | 03 June 2015 | One of the United States government's top counterterrorism officials says Congress must help investigators crack the encrypted communications of terrorists as groups like the so-called Islamic State ramp-up their online recruitment efforts. On Capitol Hill on Wednesday, Michael Steinbach, the assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's counterterrorism division, told the House Homeland Security Committee that the FBI is "imploring for Congress to help" law enforcement with its quest to decrypt digital communications. Steinbach said that the FBI is working with the Department of Homeland Security to ensure that the law enforcement tactics currently in use can be implemented as needed, but suggested that legislation might be needed for situations where communications being sought are obfuscated from the eyes of investigators by encryption or other means.

Slain Boston man had planned to behead police officers: FBI | 03 June 2015 | A Massachusetts man slain by law enforcement officers on Tuesday had discussed plans to behead police officers with an associate arrested the same day, according to papers filed in Boston federal court on Wednesday. Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, 26, who law enforcement officers shot to death after he allegedly confronted them with a large knife, had told David Wright "I'm just going to, ah, go after them, those boys in blue," an FBI agent involved in the investigation said in an affidavit. Rahim had ordered three knives, with blades ranging in length from 8 inches (20 cm) to 9.75 inches (25 cm), from online retailers and had joked in wire-tapped phone conversations with Wright, 24, about "thinking with your head on your chest," according to the affidavit.

Where did the half billion raised for Haiti go? Red Cross won't say, only built six houses

June 4, 2015 by legitgov

Where did the half billion raised for Haiti go? Red Cross won't say, only built six houses | 03 June 2015 | In late 2011, the Red Cross launched a multimillion-dollar project to transform the desperately poor area, which was hit hard by the earthquake that struck Haiti the year before. The Red Cross received an outpouring of donations after the quake, nearly half a billion dollars. In fact, the Red Cross has repeatedly failed on the ground in Haiti. Confidential memos, emails from worried top officers, and accounts of a dozen frustrated and disappointed insiders show the charity has broken promises, squandered donations, and made dubious claims of success. The Red Cross [frauds] says it has provided homes to more than 130,000 people. But the actual number of permanent homes the group has built in all of Haiti: six.

June 4, 2015 by legitgov

NSA surveillance bill passes after weeks-long showdown | 02 June 2015 | The National Security Agency lost its authority to collect the phone records of millions of Americans, thanks to a new reform measure Congress passed on Tuesday. President Barack Obama signed the bill into law on Tuesday evening. It is the first piece of legislation to 'reform' post 9/11 surveillance measures...Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul assailed the NSA in a 10-hour speech that roused civil libertarians around the country. He opposed both renewing the post 9/11-Patriot Act and the compromise measure -- that eventually passed -- known as the USA Freedom Act.

Boston shooting: Suspect plotted to behead Pamela Geller, sources say [And he's dead now? Damn. (Just kidding NSA trolls!)] | 03 June 2015 | Usaamah Rahim, who was fatally shot after waving a military knife at law enforcement officers in Boston, was originally plotting to behead Pamela Geller, an activist and conservative blogger sociopath, law enforcement sources told CNN on Wednesday. But Rahim, a 26-year-old security guard who officials believe was radicalized by ISIS [I-CIA-SIS] and other extremists, decided instead to target the "boys in blue," a reference to police, according to court documents. "I can't wait that long," he said of the original beheading plan, according to an FBI affidavit filed in federal court in Boston on Wednesday.

WikiLeaks releases documents related to controversial US TPP corporate takeover pact --Document dump regarding Trade in Services Agreement comes day after organization put $100,000 bounty on documents from series of US 'trade' treaties | 03 June 2015 | WikiLeaks on Wednesday released 17 different documents related to the Trade in Services Agreement (Tisa), a controversial pact currently being hashed out between the US and 23 other countries -- most of them in Europe and South America. The document dump comes at a tense moment in the negotiations over a series of trade deals. President Barack Obama has clashed with his own party over the deals as critics have worried about the impact on jobs and civil liberties. On Tuesday, WikiLeaks put a $100,000 bounty on documents relating to the alphabet soup of trade treaties currently being negotiated between the US and the rest of the world, particularly the controversial deadly Trans-Pacific trade corporate takeover agreement (TPP). The offer, announced yesterday, has already raised more than $33,000. [The TPP: They're covering college students carrying mattresses around campus while Eden is burning.' --MDR, Ph.D.]

Describing the heart-warming spectacle, professional photographer, Sergey Ivanov, 52, said: 'It seemed like a meeting of two best friends with handshaking.'

Jury convicts couple of plotting terrorist attack at B.C. legislature; entrapment argument still to be heard | 02 June 2015 | John Nuttall and Amanda Korody have been found guilty of plotting to detonate pressure-cooker bombs outside the B.C. legislature on Canada Day in a case that raised questions about police tactics amid increasing fears of homegrown terrorism. And the case is not yet complete - the parties will soon return to court to consider if the accused were entrapped by police. A jury returned to a Vancouver courtroom on Tuesday after three days of deliberations and found the couple guilty of conspiring to murder persons unknown and making or possessing an explosive substance - in both cases for the benefit or at the direction of a terrorist group. The judge said she would wait to enter the verdicts until she hears the entrapment argument -- which cannot be heard by a jury.

June 3, 2015 by legitgov

Man Under Surveillance by Terror Investigators Is Shot Dead | 02 June 2015 | A man who was under 24-hour surveillance by terrorism investigators was shot and killed Tuesday after he lunged with a knife at a police officer and an FBI agent outside a pharmacy, authorities said. A law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation into what happened said the man had been making threats against law enforcement. Police Commissioner William Evans said members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force approached Usaama Rahim in the city's Roslindale neighborhood on Tuesday morning to question him about "terrorist-related information" [?!?] they had received when he went at officers with a large military-style [?!?] knife.

Battling bad weather, divers and other rescue workers pulled five people they found trapped in the upturned hull of the four-deck Eastern Star, a small fraction of the 458 people state media said were on board when the ship capsized on Monday night.

Man shot by law enforcement in Boston was monitored round-the-clock by terrorism task force | 02 June 2015 | The fatal shooting of a Muslim man on a Boston sidewalk underscores the difficulty faced by US authorities trying to counter the 'increasing influence of Islamic radicalization' among young men and women living in the United States. Although the full details of Tuesday's encounter have not yet been released, authorities said the victim, Usaama Rahim, had been under round-the-clock surveillance by a terrorism task force that suspected he had become radicalized by the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS). Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said the fatal confrontation occurred at about 7 a.m. when a Boston police officer and an FBI agent sought to approach Rahim on the street to question him.

Senate passes bill to privatize surveillance: Telcos to act as arm of law enforcement and collect, store data for US govt [I can't help but think that this has been the goal all along. Nearly all of the previous privacy abuses will continue, but the costs will skyrocket so telco corpora-terrorists can make a killing on the spying. --LRP] Congress approves bill to resume, overhaul NSA surveillance after lapse --After six months of continued spying, NSA will leave records with phone companies | 02 June 2015 | The Senate gave final approval Tuesday to legislation that would restart -- but also overhaul -- controversial government surveillance programs that went dark over the weekend after lawmakers missed a key deadline. In a 67-32 vote, the chamber approved the so-called USA Freedom Act. The legislation, which already won approval in the House, now goes to President Obama's desk. The vote comes after key surveillance programs -- most notably, the National Security Agency's bulk collection of Americans' phone records -- were suspended Sunday after Congress missed the deadline for reauthorization.

Prisoner alleges CIA sexual abuse, torture beyond Senate findings | 02 June 2015 | The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency used a wider array of sexual abuse and other forms of torture than was disclosed in a Senate report last year, according to a Guantanamo Bay detainee prisoner turned government cooperating witness. Majid Khan said interrogators poured ice water on his genitals, twice videotaped him naked and repeatedly touched his "private parts" -- none of which was described in the Senate report. Interrogators, some of whom smelled of alcohol, also threatened to beat him with a hammer, baseball bats, sticks and leather belts, Khan said. "I wished they had killed me," Khan told his lawyers. He said that he experienced excruciating pain when hung naked from poles and that guards repeatedly held his head under ice water.

The number of laboratories known to have 'mistakenly' receiving samples of live anthrax has grown to at least 28 labs in 12 states and the District of Columbia, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday.

O'Malley attacks big banks, political dynasties in launching uphill 2016 bid | 30 May 2015 | Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley launched his long-shot White House bid Saturday with populist attacks on corporate giants, big banks and political dynasties, offering himself as a younger, more progressive alternative to Hillary Rodham Clinton. "We cannot rebuild the American dream here at home by catering to the voices of the privileged and the powerful," O'Malley told a sweaty crowd at Baltimore's Federal Hill Park before coming here to campaign in the nation's first presidential nominating state. O'Malley will visit New Hampshire, another early nominating state, on Sunday. Creating a base of support there and in Iowa is crucial to his upstart strategy.

Coalition backbench calling for even tougher stance against Australians supporting terrorism | 01 June 2015 | Prime Minister Tony Abbott is under pressure from his own backbench to go further than stripping dual nationals of their citizenship, if they support terrorism. Liberal MP Dan Tehan delivered a letter to Mr Abbott today, with support from two thirds of the backbench for a plan to come down even harder on those found to be supporting terrorism. The move would go further than stripping the citizenship from dual nationals, but also solo citizens of second-generation Australians who can apply to another country.

Another obvious set-up: D.C. mansion slaying suspect reportedly traced with DNA on pizza crust actually 'doesn’t like pizza': attorney | 30 May 2015 | The D.C. mansion murder suspect reportedly identified with forensic evidence on a pizza crust at the crime scene doesn't even enjoy eating pizza, an attorney hired by the family of Daron Wint told the Daily News. Robin Ficker, who said he completed a two-hour consultation with Wint, 34, on Saturday at the D.C. Central Detention Center, sliced into official accounts of the alleged quadruple homicide in an interview with the News. "He doesn't like pizza, he doesn't order pizza," Ficker said. "If you don't like pizza and you're holding people hostage in a house, aren't you going to look in the refrigerator for something else?"

Patriot Act powers to lapse at midnight as Senate fails to agree on NSA reform

June 1, 2015 by legitgov

Patriot Act powers to lapse at midnight as Senate fails to agree on NSA reform | 31 May 2015 | Republican senator Rand Paul forced at least a temporary shutdown of sweeping US surveillance powers on Sunday night after refusing to allow an accelerated vote on 'compromise legislation' designed to more 'narrowly restrain' the National Security Agency. In a double blow for Washington security hawks, represented by embattled Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, it now looks likely that Congress will have to wait several days before passing that bill, the USA Freedom Act. The reform legislation, which bans privatizes the NSA from collecting Americans' telephone records in bulk, was initially opposed by McConnell. But with the clock ticking down toward the midnight expiration of broader powers initially granted after 9/11 under the Patriot Act, Republican leaders had few options but to get behind the bill as the best way of preserving other surveillance authority.

NSA used Stuxnet to attack North Korea's nuclear program, but U.S. agents could not access core machines

May 31, 2015 by legitgov

Act of war: NSA used Stuxnet to attack North Korea's nuclear program, but U.S. agents could not access core machines | 29 May 2015 | The United States tried to deploy a version of the Stuxnet computer virus to attack North Korea's nuclear weapons program five years ago but ultimately failed, according to people familiar with the covert campaign. The operation began in tandem with the now-famous U.S.-Israeli Stuxnet attack that sabotaged Iran's nuclear program in 2009 and 2010 by destroying a thousand or more centrifuges that were enriching uranium. According to one U.S. intelligence source, Stuxnet's developers produced a related virus that would be activated when it encountered Korean-language settings on an infected machine. But U.S. agents could not access the core machines that ran Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program, said another source, a former high-ranking intelligence official who was briefed on the program.

Thousands of teenage girls enduring debilitating illnesses after routine school cancer vaccination

Thousands of teenage girls enduring debilitating illnesses after routine school cancer vaccination | 31 May 2015 | ...Emily Ryalls is one of the thousands of teenage girls who have endured debilitating illnesses following the routine immunisation. She is yet to recover and has no idea when her health will return to normal. Mrs Ryalls reported Emily's condition to the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). In the 10 years to April this year the agency received almost 22,000 "spontaneous suspected" adverse drug reaction (ADR) reports in 13 routine immunisation categories including flu, MMR, tetanus, diphtheria and polio, according to a Freedom of Information response released earlier this month. In the HPV category alone, ADRs numbered 8,228, of which 2,587 were classified as "serious" -- defined by several criteria, including whether it resulted in hospitalisation or was deemed life threatening. The MHRA said that the figures did not reflect the true amount of ADRs because of an "unknown and variable level of under-reporting".
