Europe urges citizens
to leave Libya´s Benghazi

Reuters, by Marie-Louise Gumuchian *

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/24/2013 3:20:27 PM

Tripoli & London - European countries urged their nationals to leave the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Thursday, with Britain citing a "specific and imminent" threat to Westerners days after a deadly attack by Islamist militants in neighboring Algeria. Officials declined to give details, but Britain has warned of a growing militant threat in North Africa, which Prime Minister David Cameron has called a "magnet for jihadists". (Snip) He just said there are threats of attacks on foreign institutions run by foreigners and that schools and hospitals are on the list."

Comments:
*[ w/ Mohammed Abbas].

When the liberals, Amnesty International, etc., realize that terrorist not only attack innocents, as in soft targets. That why they are "terrorists," without uniforms, just pure hate. So, they hide their weapons and personnel to do their planning around these supposed safe havens. Any country attacking Al Qaeda and their offshoots should level these places and not let them be used to protect our enemies. Blame the Al Qaeda for the "human shields." Drive them to the sea to drown like the rats they are.

Washington - Ten months after the Sept. 11 attacks, the nation’s surveillance court delivered a ruling that intelligence officials consider a milestone in the secret history of American spying and privacy law. Called the “Raw Take” order — classified docket No. 02-431 — it weakened restrictions on sharing private information about Americans, according to documents and interviews. (Snip) The Raw Take order significantly changed that system, documents show, allowing counterterrorism analysts at the N.S.A., the F.B.I. and the C.I.A. to share unfiltered personal information. The leaked documents that refer to the rulings, including one called

Frustrated researchers have pointed out that China missed a golden opportunity to exploit the capability of its satellites in the search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. (Snip) Chi said while China had enough satellites to monitor a large area around the clock, including the search zone, monitoring every bit of land and sea would require too many people. "Chinese satellites´ real-time surveillance capability will likely be strengthened after this incident," Chi, a professor with the academy´s Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth in Beijing, told the South China Morning Post. China had used its satellites to search for the missing aircraft in the

Mystery Malaysia flight may have

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was hundreds of miles off course, traveling in the opposite direction from its original destination and had stopped sending identifying transponder codes before it disappeared, a senior Malaysian Air Force official told CNN Tuesday. If correct, these are ominous signs that could call into question whether someone in the cockpit might have deliberately steered the plane away from its intended destination, a former U.S. aviation investigator said. (Snip) A power failure would have turned off the main transponder and its backup, and the plane could have flown for more than an hour, he said.

Subang Jaya - Royal Malaysian Navy chief, Admiral Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Jaafar has clarified there no submarine were being used in the search-and-rescue mission to locate the missing aircraft of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Flight MH370. He said this was because the submarines, which are installed only with sonar detector systems, were incapable of performing the task of detecting static objects on the seabed. "The sonar systems installed on the navy´s submarines are unable to detect or track any static objects at sea surface level, but it can only detect moving objects or those emitting sounds," he told reporters after visiting the

A geostrategist today dwelled on the prospects of aircraft passengers´ survival in the event of a crash at sea. Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) geostrategist Prof Dr Azmi Hassan, who spoke to Bernama after participating in a BernamaTV programme, said if flight MH370 had really crashed at sea, survivors could likely sustain for up to two months at sea. "That is if they are in an emergency dinghy that contains all the essential items such as vests, tents and food," he opined. Meanwhile, he encouraged anxious families of the missing flight´s passengers and crew to remain calm and positive. "The radar could not detect the aircraft probably

The most serious fight between the Central Intelligence Agency and Congress to erupt during the Obama administration went very public on Tuesday, as the agency’s top Senate overseer accused the CIA of blocking an investigation into interrogation practices and possibly violating the Constitution. In an extraordinary speech on the Senate floor, Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said CIA personnel appeared to have illicitly snooped on Senate staffers by examining computers they used as part of a long-running review of the agency’s treatment of terrorism suspects under President George W. Bush.

Washington - The director of the Central Intelligence Agency said on Tuesday intelligence officials could not rule out terrorism as a factor in the disappearance of a Malaysian Airlines plane. "You cannot discount any theory, " CIA Director John Brennan said during rare public comments in Washington. A massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER has so far found no trace of the aircraft or the 239 passengers and crew since it was reported missing on Saturday. The head of international police agency Interpol said on Tuesday he did not believe the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane at the weekend

Moscow - Ukraine´s parliament has warned the regional assembly in Crimea that it faces dissolution unless it cancels a referendum it has called to join the region to Russia. A resolution, supported by a parliamentary vote, gave the Crimean parliament until Wednesday to call off the referendum, due to take place on Sunday. The Crimean parliament on Tuesday passed a motion stating that it would become independent in the event of a yes vote and then seek to join the Russian Federation, arguing that "the unilateral declaration of independence of part of a state does not violate any international laws".

Trenton, N.J. - Lawyers for two key figures in a political payback scandal ensnaring Gov. Chris Christie´s administration will go in court to try to persuade a judge not to force them to turn over text messages and other private communications to New Jersey legislators investigating the matter. Fired Christie staffer Bridget Kelly and two-time campaign manager Bill Stepien say complying with the subpoenas carries the risk of self-incrimination. Kelly did not speak to the reporters who surrounded her when she arrived at the courthouse Tuesday. Stepien was not expected to attend. The subpoenas seek documents involving the intentional blocking of

Washington - The head of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee says the CIA improperly searched a stand-alone computer network established for Congress as part of its investigation into allegations of CIA abuse in a Bush-era detention and interrogation program. Sen. Dianne Feinstein said the incident has been referred to the Justice Department by the CIA´s inspector general. In lengthy remarks on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Feinstein said the search in January raised grave concerns that constitutional rights were violated. At issue is whether the CIA violated an agreement made with the intelligence committee about monitoring the panel´s

Help from Germany: Firms Could

Der Spiegel [Germany], by Frank Dohmen    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/11/2014 10:07:51 AM     Post Reply
In geopolitical disputes between Moscow and Kiev, natural gas is a frequent tool used by the Russians to bring Ukraine back into political line. With frigid winter temperatures, Ukraine is heavily reliant on Russian gas to provide heating, and in recent years, the Russians have twice cut off gas supplies to the country. That eventuality could play a role in the current crisis. Now Germany´s major energy utility companies are developing strategies to help Ukraine fill the shortfall if Moscow decides to cut gas supplies. Companies including RWE and E.on are working on plans to supply Ukraine with weeks' worth of gas.

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg. "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," Beyoncé says, while Lynch adds, "and that´s

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

We’ve reached the point where I honestly can’t tell if he means this as a criticism or not. However, he did get in some criticism of the speakers, who included Cruz, at the Conservative Political Action Conference last week. “All of these people at the CPAC will claim that they are Reagan Republicans,” McCain said. “Did they forget that Ronald Reagan gave amnesty to three million Americans?
