Airport body scanners deliver radiation dose 20 times higher than first thought, warns expert

Airport body scanners deliver radiation dose 20 times higher than first thought, warns expert 30 Jun 2010 Full body scanners at airports could increase your risk of skin cancer, experts warn. The X-ray machines have been brought in at Manchester, Gatwick and Heathrow. Scientists say that the low level beam does deliver a small dose of radiation to the body but because the beam concentrates on the skin - one of the most radiation-sensitive organs of the human body - that dose may be up to 20 times higher than first estimated.

June Marks Deadliest Month in Afghanistan War

June Marks Deadliest Month in Afghanistan War --At Least 100 Coalition Troops Killed in June and 400 Americans Wounded 29 Jun 2010 America's longest war is growing more deadly, reports CBS News. U.S. and NATO troops are being killed and injured almost daily. In June, at least 100 coalition troops have been killed, including 54 Americans. Nearly 400 Americans were wounded.

Russian spies in UK 'at cold war levels', says MI5

Russian spies in UK 'at cold war levels', says MI5 --"The number of Russian intelligence officers in London is at the same level as in Soviet times", MI5 says on its website. 29 Jun 2010 The uncovering of the spy ring in the US is unlikely to surprise MI5. In recent years the agency has been building up its counter-espionage arm against Russian and other foreign spies for the first time since the end of the cold war, according to counter-intelligence officials. Though its priority remains the threat from extreme Islamist and al-Qaida inspired terrorism, MI5 officers have been switched to counter more traditional tasks against foreign states whose intentions are considered hostile, officials say.

Democrats drop fee from bank bill to 'secure votes'

Democrats drop fee from bank bill to 'secure votes' --The money would have been used to pay for the costs of the legislation. 29 Jun 2010 Top DemocRATic House and Senate negotiators who worked out a deal on a sweeping overhaul of financial regulations regrouped Tuesday to eliminate a $19 billion fee on banks that had threatened to derail the legislation. Eager to salvage one of President Barack Obama's legislative priorities, lawmakers replaced the bank fee with money generated by ending the $700 billion bank bailout and by increasing bank premiums on deposit insurance. The bill's fate was thrown into doubt this week following the death of Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., and after Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts vowed to abandon his support for the bill if it retained the assessment on large banks and hedge funds. [Right, the little maggot wants taxpayers to pay instead of his banking/Wall Street overlords.]

Cameron to launch inquiry into MI5 torture allegations

Cameron to launch inquiry into MI5 torture allegations 30 Jun 2010 Victims of torture carried out with the knowledge of British agents could receive compensation, the Government has decided. David Cameron is expected to announce a judge-led inquiry shortly into the long-running allegations that British intelligence officers were complicit in British residents being tortured by the security services of other countries. The move could cause tension with the US, which had already hinted that the sharing of classified information with Britain could be put at risk if the work of its agents torturers is put under the spotlight.

General Petraeus: US troops to remain in Afghanistan for years

General Petraeus: US troops to remain in Afghanistan for years 29 Jun 2010 Gen. David Petraeus on Tuesday appeared to adroitly navigate around the potential pitfalls of his nomination hearing lie to be commander of allied forces in the Afghanistan war. In particular, General Petraeus vowed to senators that he supports President Obama’s Afghan strategy [!], including its exit plan, while simultaneously reassuring them that the US commitment to the fight there "is an enduring one." Petraeus repeated that the July 2011 deadline for the beginning of troop withdrawals is flexible and that any such drawdown will occur only if it is warranted by conditions on the ground.

DailyKos polls were "bunk"

Just like former CIA-agent wannabe Markos Moulitsas himself: DailyKos polls were "bunk" 29 Jun 2010 Markos Moulitsas, the proprietor of the popular liberal blog DailyKos, just posted a report that he believes shows the site's pollster, Research 2000, was using "fraudulent" numbers. As Josh Marshall writes, the report is "explosive"; if Kos and the three statistics experts who approached him are right, they've caught a well-known and oft-cited pollster in outright deception.

US Senate committee confirms Gen Petraeus as new Afghanistan commander

US Senate committee confirms Gen Petraeus as new Afghanistan commander 30 Jun 2010 A key Senate committee on Tuesday confirmed General David Petraeus as the new US and NATO commander in Afghanistan after a hearing marked by bickering over the July, 2011, troop withdrawal deadline.

US banks off the hook until 2022

US banks off the hook until 2022 --Political reality Democrats' surrender  has forced compromise into the final version of the financial regulation 'reform' bill in the US 29 Jun 2010 It was billed by Barack Obama as the toughest crackdown on Wall Street since the great depression. But top US banks could be given until 2022 to comply with the so-called Volcker rule, which is supposed to restrict financial institutions' riskier trading activities. A string of delays and extension periods written into a final version of Congress's financial regulation reform bill means that firms such as Citigroup and Goldman Sachs could exploit loopholes until 2022 before withdrawing from "illiquid" funds such as private equity.

Petraeus vows long-term commitment in Afghan war

Endless bl*wjobs for Blackwater, thanks to Betrayus replacement scam: Petraeus vows long-term commitment in Afghan war --General: Troops will be in Afghanistan 'for quite some time' 29 Jun 2010 Gen.

Petraeus told senators Tuesday that he would insist on "an unshakeable commitment to teamwork among all elements of the U.S. government" as the new commander of U.S. and foreign forces in Afghanistan, as the Obama administration sought his quick confirmation to replace fired Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal.

EU, US sign anti-terror finance deal

EU, US sign anti-terror finance deal 28 Jun 2010 Europe and the United States signed on Monday a new deal allowing Washington to access bank data to track terrorist finance after easing European concerns about privacy rights. The agreement now needs the green light from the European parliament, which had blocked an initial deal in February, barring the United States from seeing the bank data since then. The system was introduced in the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001 in the United States to help tackle the financing of terrorism.

CIA-operated drones on Tuesday struck a compound in Karikot village which allegedly belonged to a militant commander, AFP quoted a senior Pakistani security official as saying on condition of anonymity.

One million protest against Italy's austerity cuts

One million protest against Italy's austerity cuts 26 Jun 2010 Italians marched through cities and towns yesterday in a general strike protesting an austerity budget they say bleeds workers but spares the rich. The left-leaning CGIL union called the strike in an effort to force prime minister Silvio Berlusconi's government to redraft a €25 billion austerity package he says is an essential part of European efforts to save the currency. The website of the CGIL, Italy’s largest union, said more than one million people took part in various demonstrations in large and small cities around the country.

The Toronto G20 Riot Fraud: Undercover Police engaged in Purposeful Provocation

The Toronto G20 Riot Fraud: Undercover Police engaged in Purposeful Provocation At Tax Payers' Expense By Terry Burrows 27 Jun 2010 Here is another 'black bloc' operative stomping on the roof of a Toronto Police car. Where are the police? He is obviously being "allowed" to trash the vehicle to create what will become the signature media images of the event -- burning police cars in Toronto. But stamping on shattered glass and plastic is pretty hard on your shoes. But his shoes can obviously take it because he is wearing the same brand new distinctive black combat boots as the Starbucks rock throwing provocateur above.

High court rejects Iraq case against Halliburton

High court rejects Iraq case against Halliburton 28 Jun 2010 The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from a woman who wants to sue Halliburton for the brain injury her husband suffered when a truck in a fuel convoy crashed in Iraq. The justices, without comment Monday, let stand a federal appeals court ruling dismissing the lawsuit filed by Annette Carmichael of Atlanta, on behalf of her husband, Sgt. Keith Carmichael. The Obama administration recommended denial of the appeal.

Robert Byrd, Longest-Serving US Senator, Dies at 92

Robert Byrd, Longest-Serving US Senator, Dies at 92 28 Jun 2010 Robert Byrd, the 92-year-old West Virginia Democrat who served in the U.S. Senate for 51 years, died Monday. A spokesman for the family, Jesse Jacobs, said Mr. Byrd died peacefully at about 3 a.m. at Inova Hospital in Fairfax, Va. His health had been failing for several years. A master of Senate procedures and orator... Mr. Byrd served longer, voted more frequently, and probably used the arcane Senate rules to more effect any previous denizen of the nation's senior legislative house.

Ex-Chicago policeman guilty of lying about torture

Ex-Chicago policeman guilty of lying about torture 28 Jun 2010 A retired Chicago police commander suspected of using electric shocks, suffocation and mock executions to force suspects to confess was found guilty on Monday of lying about the brutality. Jon Burge was tried on perjury and obstruction of justice charges because the alleged torture occurred too long ago for him to be directly accused of those crimes. The guilty verdict on all three counts in a federal indictment means he could face up to 45 years in prison.

Byrd special election to be held in 2012 28 Jun 2010 West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant (D) announced this afternoon that a special election to replace the late Sen. Robert Byrd (D) will be held in 2012, not this fall as some had speculated. Calling the state election code an "interesting" document, Tennant said that because the filing deadline for this election had long passed that the "next" election for a special to be held was not November 2010 but November 2012.

New Ballot Machines Are Flawed, Suit Says

New Ballot Machines Are Flawed, Suit Says 27 Jun 2010 Electronic voting machines being deployed for the first time this year across New York City and the rest of the state contain a flaw that could lead to thousands of votes being thrown out, according to a lawsuit that advocacy groups will file Monday. The problem, according to the legal complaint, revolves around voters who accidentally pick too many candidates for a particular race -- an error known as “overvoting,” which invalidates the incorrect part of their ballot.

Leave our eggs alone Tories warn Brussels

Leave our eggs alone Tories warn Brussels 27 Jun 2010 An attempt by Brussels to stop British shoppers buying eggs by the dozen will be blocked, ministers promised yesterday. European regulations that aim to ban the sale of a dozen eggs, six bread rolls or four apples go against common sense, they said. The rapid coalition pledge that food will stay on sale in the traditional way follows a move by the European Commission to undermine the use of longstanding and universally understood non-metric measures.

Gun lobby victory as every American's right to bear arms upheld by ruling

Gun lobby victory as every American's right to bear arms upheld by ruling --National Rifle Association celebrates US supreme court ruling that ends localised gun control laws in America 28 Jun 2010 Supporters of gun rights in the US won a major legal victory today, when the highest court in the country ruled that an individual's constitutional right to bear arms applied to every corner of the country and throughout its 50 states. The US supreme court delivered a split judgment along the familiar 5-4 conservative-liberal divide. The ruling specifically overturned a ban on handguns in Chicago that has stood for 28 years.

NATO death toll doubles in Afghanistan 28 Jun 2010 Latest data shows casualties of the US-led forces in Afghanistan have doubled in the first half of 2010 compared to the same period in 2009.

U.S. Charges 11 With Acting as Agents for Russia

U.S. Charges 11 With Acting as Agents for Russia 28 Jun 2010 In what law enforcements officials portrayed as an extraordinary takedown of a Russian espionage network, the Justice Department on Monday announced charges against 11 people accused of living for years in the United States as part of a deep-cover program by S.V.R. -- one of the successors to the Soviet-era K.G.B. The complaints followed a multiyear investigation that culminated with Sunday’s arrest of 10 people in Yonkers; Montclair, New Jersey; Boston; and northern Virginia. The documents detailed what authorities called the "Illegals Program," an S.V.R. effort to plant Russian spies in the United States to gather information and recruit people able to infiltrate government policy-making circles.

Elena Kagan Faces Republican Critics as Supreme Court Hearings Begin

Elena Kagan Faces Republican Critics as Supreme Court Hearings Begin --Former Solicitor General, Harvard Dean Pledges 'Impartiality' if Confirmed to High Court 28 Jun 2010 Elena Kagan, nominated to become the 112th justice and only the fourth woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court,  broke her silence today and directly addressed Republican critics as the political showdown over her confirmation begins in the Senate Judiciary Committee. "I will do my best to consider every case impartially, modestly, with commitment to principle, and in accordance with the law," Kagan told senators on the first day of the weeklong hearings on her qualifications to serve on the nation's highest court. [Obusha misdirect #1,738: Barack Obama nominated a moderate to Supreme Court to replace a liberal, as he asserts that Elena Kagan will take a bi-partisan approach and 'unite' conservatives and liberals for the common good. Does anyone *actually believe* that Kagan is going to sway John Roberts, Piece-of-Sh*t Scalia or Predator Clarence Thomas? --LRP]

US 'waging psycho war against Iran'

US 'waging psycho war against Iran' 28 Jun 2010 Iran says the US allegation about the military nature of Tehran's nuclear program is "a psychological war" aimed at creating a negative attitude towards the country. On Sunday, CIA director Leon Panetta said he "thinks" Iran has enough low-enriched uranium to produce two atomic weapons within two years, without elaborating on the source of the conjecture. Such remarks are some kind of psychological warfare aimed at creating a negative mentality about Iran's peaceful nuclear program, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said in reaction to Panetta's comments, IRNA reported.
