Pentagon destroyed 10,000 copies of army officer's book

Pentagon destroyed 10,000 copies of army officer's book 26 Sep 2010 The Pentagon has admitted buying up and destroying 10,000 copies of an insider's account of life in Afghanistan by an army intelligence officer. It said that the book, Operation Dark Heart by Lt Col Anthony Shaffer, threatened to divulge state secrets. Lt Col Shaffer, a bronze star recipient, said he had no intention of jeopardising American lives or damaging national security. "The whole premise smacks of retaliation," he told CNN. "Someone buying 10,000 books to suppress a story in this digital age is ludicrous." [Hey, can some country please do an 'Operation Iraqi Freedom'-style rescue in the US, and liberate us from these a**wipes? --LRP]

'Jews for Justice' aid boat sets sail for Gaza

'Jews for Justice' aid boat sets sail for Gaza 26 Sep 2010 A boat carrying Jewish activists from Israel, Germany, the U.S. and Britain set sail on Sunday for Gaza, hoping to breach Israel's blockade there and deliver aid. Richard Kuper, an organizer with the U.K. group Jews for Justice for Palestinians, said one goal is to show that not all Jews support Israeli policies toward Palestinians. Kuper said the boat, which set sail from northern Cyprus flying a British flag, won't resist if Israeli authorities try to stop it.

Censorship of the Internet Takes Center Stage in "Online Infringement" Bill

Censorship of the Internet Takes Center Stage in "Online Infringement" Bill By Richard Esguerra 21 Sep 2010 Senator Patrick Leahy yesterday introduced the "Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act" (COICA). This flawed bill would allow the Attorney General and the Department of Justice to break the Internet one domain at a time -- by requiring domain registrars/registries, ISPs, DNS providers, and others to block Internet users from reaching certain websites. The bill would also create two Internet blacklists. The first is a list of all the websites hit with a censorship court order from the Attorney General. The second, more worrying, blacklist is a list of domain names that the Department of Justice determines -- without judicial review -- are "dedicated to infringing activities."

Ahmadinejad calls for 9/11 tribunal

Ahmadinejad calls for 9/11 tribunal 25 Sep 2010 Iran's president describes as 'naive' the US government's response to his earlier comments about the 9/11 attacks, calling for a special tribunal to investigate the incident. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had questioned the official account of the September 11 attacks on US soil, suggesting that US officials were involved in the matter. "It is necessary to re-listen to the black box of [the plane used in] September 11 attacks," Ahmadinejad said. [*Really.* Also, examine the cell phone call transcripts made aboard the 'hijacked' planes, when such technology wasn't even available in 2001. 'Mom? This is Mark Brigham.' A real investigation could have been wrapped-up in the first forty minutes of a run-of-the-mill 'NCIS' or a half-hour on 'Numb3rs,' even *after* the Writers' Strike. --LRP]

Stuxnet worm is the 'work of a national government agency'

Stuxnet worm is the 'work of a national government agency' --Malware believed to be targeting Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant may have been created by Israeli hackers 24 Sep 2010 A computer worm which targets industrial and factory systems is almost certainly the work of a national government agency, security experts told the Guardian -- but warn that it will be near-impossible to identify the culprit. The "Stuxnet" computer worm, which has been described as one of the "most refined pieces of malware ever discovered", has been most active in Iran, says the security company Symantec -- leading some experts to conjecture that the likely target of the virus is the controversial Bushehr nuclear power plant, and that it was created by Israeli hackers.

Stuxnet Worm a U.S. Cyber-Attack on Iran?

Stuxnet Worm a U.S. Cyber-Attack on Iran? 24 Sep 2010 A top expert in protecting industry and infrastructure from cyber-attacks has told the Financial Times that a computer worm which surfaced more than a year ago may well have been a deliberate attempt by the U.S. government to destroy Iran's primary nuclear facility. The Stuxnet worm has been researched for months, but its design is so complex that security experts are still unable to say definitively who or what it was created to attack. [Only Grade 'A' sociopaths -- the US or Israel -- would actually launch a cyber attack on a nuclear facility.]

CIA used 'illegal, inaccurate code to target kill drones'

CIA used 'illegal, inaccurate code to target kill drones' --'They want to kill people with software that doesn't work' 24 Sep 2010 The CIA is implicated in a court case in which it's claimed it used an illegal, inaccurate software "hack" to direct secret assassination drones in central Asia. The target of the court action is Netezza, the data warehousing firm that IBM bid $1.7bn for on Monday. The case raises serious questions about the conduct of Netezza executives, and the conduct of CIA's clandestine war against senior jihadis in Afghanistan and Pakistan. [Maybe the software will completely malfunction and the killer drones will 'return to sender.']

Jim Manley, a spokesman for Senator Harry Reid, the majority leader, said late Thursday afternoon that Republicans were to blame for the delay by insisting on an extension of all tax cuts, including those for the wealthy.

Stuxnet virus: worm 'could be aimed at high-profile Iranian targets'

Stuxnet virus: worm 'could be aimed at high-profile Iranian targets' --Stuxnet can be used to reprogram software to force a computer to carry out different commands. 23 Sep 2010 Security experts have identified malicious software, thought to be aimed at power stations and water plants in Iran. The complexity of the Stuxnet worm has lead some experts to speculate that it could be an act of cyber terrorism, a virus written and sanctioned by one country with the aim of impacting the infrastructure of another. Some security experts believe the worm was likely targeted at high value infrastructure in Iran, such as nuclear power stations.

How the CIA runs a secret army of 3,000 assassins 23 Sep 2010 The US Central Intelligence Agency is running and paying for a secret 3,000-strong army of Afghan paramilitaries whose main aim is assassinating Taliban and al-Qa'ida operatives not just in Afghanistan but across the border in neighbouring Pakistan's tribal areas, according to Bob Woodward's explosive book. Although the CIA has long been known to run clandestine militias in Afghanistan, including one from a base it rents from the Afghan president Hamid Karzai's half-brother in the southern province of Kandahar, the sheer number of militiamen directly under its control have never been publicly revealed.
