Feds won't charge Blackwater in Sudan sanctions case

Feds won't charge Blackwater in Sudan sanctions case 27 Jun 2010 The security contractor Blackwater Worldwide tried for two years to secure lucrative defense business in Southern Sudan while the country was under U.S. economic sanctions, according to current and former U.S. officials and hundreds of pages of documents reviewed by McClatchy. The effort to drum up new business in East Africa by Blackwater owner Erik Prince, a former Navy SEAL who had close ties with top officials in the George W. Bush White House and the CIA, became a major element in a continuing four-year federal investigation into allegations of sanctions violations, illegal exports and bribery. The Obama administration, however, has decided for now not to bring criminal charges against Blackwater, according to a U.S. official close to the case.

Stupak: BP Won't Let House Panel Talk to Employees

Stupak: BP Won't Let House Panel Talk to Employees --House investigations panel chairman says BP refusing to let his panel question some employees 25 Jun 2010 The chairman of a House panel investigating the Gulf oil spill said Friday that BP won't let members talk to several employees who may have critical information about what led to the catastrophe. Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., told The Associated Press that BP PLC has cited its own investigation as its reason for denying access to the employees. "They have been slow in bringing forth documents and witnesses we want to talk to," Stupak said of BP. [No worries. BP knows the U.S. High Wh*re Court will overturn any lawsuits and fines for destroying the oceans and BP's protector/enabler, Barack Obama, will continue to do remain silent and useless, as he was on the push for the public option. --LRP]

Jindal vetoes bill to open oil spill records

Jindal vetoes bill to open oil spill records 25 Jun 2010 Gov. Bobby Jindal [R-Dirtbag] rejected a bill Friday that would have required him to make public and to preserve all his office's documents involving the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. "This governor has opposed transparency for the three years he's been in office, so that's not a surprise. What is sad about all this is it's just another black eye on Louisiana internationally now," said Sen. Robert Adley, R-Benton. Adley slipped the language requiring the governor's oil spill records to be open for public viewing and preserved for at least 10 years into a measure by Rep. Gary Smith, D-Norco. Smith accepted the addition to his bill, and both the House and Senate voted overwhelmingly for passage of the public records requirement.

Iraq's Ancient Ruins Face New Looting

Iraq's Ancient Ruins Face New Looting 26 Jun 2010 The looting of Iraq’s ancient ruins is thriving again. This time it is not a result of the “stuff happens” chaos that followed the American invasion in 2003, but rather the bureaucratic indifference of Iraq’s newly sovereign government US-installed oil puppets. Thousands of archaeological sites -- containing some of the oldest treasures of civilization -- have been left unprotected, allowing what officials of Iraq’s antiquities board say is a resumption of brazenly illegal excavations, especially here in southern Iraq.

Hurricane season triggers planning to evacuate oil spill site

Hurricane season triggers planning to evacuate oil spill site 27 Jun 2010 Meteorologists say Tropical Storm Alex, which is brewing in the western Caribbean, is not on pace to hit the oil well, but it has prompted the team overseeing the spill site to heighten emergency planning. If a storm with gale-force winds comes within five days of reaching the gushing oil well, crews would begin packing up to return to shore, said Coast Guard Adm. [BP troll] Thad W. Allen, who is overseeing the crisis for the government. A full evacuation could stop containment activities for two weeks.

The committee unanimously approved an amended version of the legislation by voice vote Thursday, a committee spokeswoman said. The bill next moves to the Senate floor for a vote, which has not yet been scheduled.

Ontario premier refuses to discuss new police powers

Ontario premier refuses to discuss new police powers 26 Jun 2010 Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty refused to comment Saturday on a controversial amendment to the Public Works Protection Act, which gives police new powers to question and search people who get close to the G20 security perimeter. The new regulation temporarily alters the Act to designate the entire security perimeter surrounding the Metro Toronto Convention Centre as a "public works" site during the summit. Under the extension, police are allowed to ask anyone within five metres of the perimeter to identify him- or herself or be searched.

Gulf oil disaster: Pensacola Beach

Gulf oil disaster: Pensacola Beach By the St. Petersburg Times staff 24 Jun 2010 The tide came in Tuesday night, under a moon almost full, and when the sun came up and the water retreated there it was: a broken band of oil about 5 feet wide and 8 miles long. It looked like tobacco spit and smelled foreign, and it pooled in yesterday's footprints as far as you could see. State officials called it the worst show of crude on shore from the gusher 120 miles away. (22 Photos)

NATO says three foreign soldiers killed in Afghanistan

NATO says three foreign soldiers killed in Afghanistan 26 Jun 2010 Three foreign soldiers were killed in Taliban-style bomb attacks in southern Afghanistan on Saturday, NATO said.

NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) did not give the nationalities of the dead, following its usual policy.

Riot police turn back largest G20 protest yet 26 Jun 2010 Police temporarily shut the gates to the G20 security perimeter early Friday evening, as they attempted to head off the largest in a string of demonstrations to protest the international meeting.

But they were turned back when police with shields blockaded University Avenue.

Genetically Altered Salmon Get Closer to the Table

Mega barf alert! Genetically Altered Salmon Get Closer to the Table 26 Jun 2010 The Food and Drug Administration is seriously considering whether to approve the first genetically engineered animal that people would [wisely refuse to] eat — salmon that can grow at twice the normal rate. Some consumer and environmental groups are likely to raise objections to approval. Even within the F.D.A., there has been a debate about whether the salmon should be labeled as genetically engineered -- genetically engineered crops are not labeled.

He did not, however, disclose further information about his "list of American terrorists."

To Solve Cyber Crimes, DARPA Wants a "Cyber Genome Program"

To Solve Cyber Crimes, DARPA Wants a "Cyber Genome Program" By Clay Dillow 26 Jun 2010 ...[T]here are the buckets of data that intelligence agencies pull from captured laptops and hard drives in terror sweeps; we have the files, but it can be difficult to figure out who’s aiding America’s enemies or what they are up to. Enter DARPA’s Cyber Genome Program, aimed at creating a paternity test for digital artifacts... Of course, there’s the dark side to all this. If this kind of digital "genome" is developed, it means the government can trace any document you create straight back to your PC – and you.

Corporaterrorist trolls ensure endless bl*wjobs for Blackwater in *five-year* illegal occupation of Afghanistan to seize country's  minerals, control opium and gas pipelines: G8 sketch out a five-year exit strategy on Afghanistan 26 Jun 2010 The G8 leaders [sociopaths] said it was important to accelerate efforts to make sure the Afghanistan's own security forces can "assume increasing responsibility within five years."

Iraq seeking investors for 4 new oil refineries

Mission accomplished! Iraq seeking investors for 4 new oil refineries 26 Jun 2010 Iraq is seeking investors to help build four oil refineries at an estimated cost of $23 billion that would more than double the country's current refining capacity, the country's top oil official said Saturday. Iraq's oil minister said partners who will build and run the refineries will have 5 percent discount for buying crude -- a recent concession to attract investors. The projects will also be exempt from state taxes and the government will not interfere in pricing the oil products once the plants are operational, Hussain al-Shahristani told a gathering of local and international oil executives in Baghdad on Saturday.

Dalton McGuinty, Bill Blair defend quiet boost in arrest powers

Dalton McGuinty, Bill Blair defend quiet boost in arrest powers --'Police state regulations' decried 26 Jun 2010 Premier Dalton McGuinty denies it was an abuse of power for his government to secretly approve sweeping new powers for police. "I just think it’s in keeping with the values and standards of Ontarians," McGuinty told the Toronto Star on Friday amid a battery of complaints from opposition parties, city councillors, civil libertarians and regular Torontonians that the new rules were kept secret and, some say, may go too far. The rules allow police to arrest and potentially jail anyone refusing to produce identification or be searched within 5 metres of the G20 security zone.

Dozens from U.S. on list of targets as terrorists - W.House national security adviser 24 Jun 2010 Dozens of Americans have joined terrorist groups and are posing a threat to the United States and its interests abroad, the president's most senior adviser on counterterrorism and homeland security said Thursday. "There are, in my mind, dozens of U.S. persons who are in different parts of the world, and they are very concerning to us," said John O. Brennan, deputy White House national security adviser for homeland security and counterterrorism.

FBI/DHS Attempt to Seize Colorado Indymedia Server

FBI/DHS Attempt to Seize Colorado Indymedia Server and Silence Our Users By Ringo 24 Jun 2010 On Jun 17, Colorado Indymedia was contacted by Special Agent Adam Kowalski of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)/Department of Homeland Security (DHS). As part of an "ongoing investigation" by Federal Protective Services, they attempted to seize the Colorado Indymedia server, believing that we kept logs (such as IP address access logs) that could identity users on our site... We told the FBI that "Colorado Indymedia does not retain this [identifying] information because we strongly believe in the First Amendment right to free, anonymous speech." [I'm glad Colo. Indymedia (essentially) told the DHS to go f*ck themselves. They spend so much time on the CLG site, they should pay a portion of our webhosting bill. --LRP]

Burned Alive - Help Stop BP from Torching Endangered Sea Turtles

Burned Alive - Help Stop BP from Torching Endangered Sea Turtles (Center for Biological Diversity) 25 Jun 2010 Endangered sea turtles are being burned alive as part of BP's careless oil spill cleanup efforts. This is unacceptable. These rare, important turtles are becoming trapped in the oily surface of the Gulf and then torched by cleanup crews in "controlled burns" of corralled oil -- any wildlife caught inside the corral are literally burned alive. Take action below right now and send this to your friends. Tell BP to stop torching endangered sea turtles.

Gale force winds could leave Gulf oil gushing for 2 weeks

Gale force winds could leave Gulf oil gushing for 2 weeks 25 Jun 2010 Gale force winds days away from the Gulf of Mexico spill site could force at-sea workers to abandon their oil-collection efforts for two weeks, the head of the national response effort said Friday. That timetable would conservatively unleash another half-million barrels of oil back in the sea -- twice the Exxon Valdez spill. Using upper-end federal estimates of the leak, 840,000 barrels would gush out. That's 35 million gallons.

Dick Cheney Hospitalized

Dick Cheney Hospitalized in Washington 25 Jun 2010 Former Vice President [sic] Dick Cheney was admitted to the hospital Friday after experiencing discomfort.
