Police killed in 'ambush' outside US Air Force base --Perimeter security tightened at McChord AFB 30 Nov 2009 Four police officers were shot dead in a cold-blooded ambush at a coffee shop on the edge of a US Air Force base in America’s Pacific Northwest on Sunday. The four uniformed officers were gunned down while working on their laptop computers as they prepared for work around 8:30am local time. They were all wearing bullet-proof vests and their marked patrol cars were parked outside. The shooting took place at the Forza coffee shop, just across the street from the McChord Air Force Base outside Tacoma, Washington state. The killings immediately stirred fears of a repeat of the shooting spree that killed 13 people at the US Army base at Fort Hood, Texas on November 5. A spokesman at McChord Air Force Base said, however, that its 4,100 personnel had not been "locked down," although perimeter security had been tightened.
Oops! Huckabee commuted sentence of man tied to police slayings 29 Nov 2009 The man whom police are seeking as a "person of interest" in the slaying of four police officers was released from an Arkansas prison nine years ago after a controversial decision by then-Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) to commute his sentence. Maurice Clemmons was identified late Sunday by the Pierce County Sheriff's Office as a man sought for questioning. Clemmons has pending charges in Pierce County Superior Court for second-degree child rape and third-degree assault for an attack on a police officer. He was released from custody in those cases after posting a $150,000 bond, according to the Lakewood Police Department. Long before coming to Washington, Clemmons was serving a 35-year prison term in Arkansas for armed robbery but his sentence was commuted by then-Gov. Huckabee, who unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination in his 2008 presidential bid, according to the Arkansas Times Web site.
Secret Service Agents Interview Intruders 30 Nov 2009 As part of a broadening inquiry into presidential security, Secret Service agents have interviewed the Virginia couple who sneaked into a White House state dinner last week, a senior federal official involved in the investigation said Sunday. The interviews, which took place Friday and Saturday, were conducted in a neutral location, neither the home of the couple, Michaele and Tareq Salahi, nor the Secret Service’s downtown offices, the official said. He would not comment on the content of the interviews or their length.
CIA pulls SWIFT one to get peek at your bank records 30 Nov 2009 European Union governments have given in to the pressure and appear set to make a last-minute agreement with the United States to allow its intelligence agencies to monitor bank accounts and transactions across the bloc. Actually, the EU has been clandestinely allowing US intelligence agencies to have access to these financial records since 2001, allegedly to fight terrorism. However, EU citizens were outraged when this invasion of privacy was revealed in 2006. Now, however, interior ministers and security officials of the 27-member bloc are going to meet on November 30 to make a decision on legally allowing the United States to have access to bank data across the EU.
