Breaking: NORAD Rd. closed; explosives team on the way 10 Feb 2011 We're learning that what appeared to be a false alarm is being taken more seriously than we previously reported at NORAD. We were told by the El Paso County Sheriff's Office that a bad battery [?!?] set off an explosives detector. Peterson AFB has issued this alert: The road to Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station is closed temporarily after a detection system tested positive on a vehicle at the gate near the installation visitors' center. An explosives ordnance detection team and a military working dog bomb detection team from the 21st Space Wing at Peterson AFB is en route to the scene to investigate.
House votes to proceed on Patriot Act extension 10 Feb 2011 The House on Thursday voted to proceed on a measure that would extend key provisions of the Patriot Act counter-terrorism surveillance law, two days after the proposal came up short in a Republican-led effort to approve it under fast-track rules. The House voted 248-to-176 to proceed on the measure, with nine lawmakers not voting. Only four Republicans voted on Thursday against proceeding, in contrast to the 26 who opposed the bill on Tuesday night. The four Republicans voting "no" on Thursday were Reps. Ron Paul (Texas), Chris Gibson (N.Y.), Raul Labrador (Idaho) and Tom McClintock (Calif.). [Thank you, Ron Paul, et. al.!]
