Israeli intelligence agents 'posed as CIA to recruit operatives against Iran's nuclear program' --The operation - often called a 'false flag' operation - occurred during the presidency [sic] of George W. Bush. 14 Jan 2012 One of the main entities in the Israeli Intelligence Community has been placing its agents within the CIA to recruit operatives against Iran's nuclear program, according to a new report. Mossad officers posed as American CIA agents were recruiting for the Pakistani militant group Jundallah, the report says. The Foreign Policy report details how Mossad officers were equipped with U.S. passports and money, recruiting extremists 'under the nose of U.S. intelligence officers.'
Mossad agents posed as CIA to recruit Jundallah terrorists 14 Jan 2012 Agents with Israel's Mossad agency posed as American CIA agents in operations to recruit members of the terrorist group Jundallah, a report in Foreign Policy magazine said Friday, AFP reported. Using American dollars and U.S. passports, the agents passed themselves off as members of the Central Intelligence Agency in the operations, notably in London, according to memos from 2007 and 2008, said the report. The Jundallah terrorist group has carried out numerous bombings, assassination attempts, and terrorist attacks in southeast Iran. [So basically, one group of terrorists - MOSSAD - pretended to be another group of terrorists - CIA - who then recruited a *third* group of terrorists - Jundallah. Ok, got it. The bigger question: WHY do US *tax dollars* fund nothing but groups of terrorists? --LRP]
False Flag --A series of CIA memos describes how Israeli Mossad agents posed as American spies to recruit members of the terrorist organization Jundallah to fight their covert war against Iran. By Mark Perry 13 Jan 2012 Buried deep in the archives of America's intelligence services are a series of memos, written during the last years of President [sic] George W. Bush's administration, that describe how Israeli Mossad officers recruited operatives belonging to the terrorist group Jundallah by passing themselves off as American agents. According to two U.S. intelligence officials, the Israelis, flush with American dollars and toting U.S. passports, posed as CIA officers in recruiting Jundallah operatives -- what is commonly referred to as a "false flag" operation.

Press TV has reported a foreign ministry spokesman as saying that IAEA inspectors who arrived in Iran had identified Iranian scientists and given their names to other parties, with the intention of stopping Iran's scientific advancements. Tehran has now said it will pursue the case with international bodies.
Iran: We have proof US behind assassination --Iranian officials claim Tehran obtained credible documents providing conclusive evidence of CIA involvement in murder of nuclear scientist 14 Jan 2012 According to an Iranian statement broadcasted on the Islamic Republic's official TV Channel, Tehran has conclusive evidence that the United States plotted the assassination of nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan last week. Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said his country has obtained "credible documents that prove the terror attack was planned, supervised and supported by the CIA," adding that he has filed an official complaint with the Swiss Embassy in Iran, which is also handles US affairs in the area.
Report: Mossad killed Iranian scientist 14 Jan 2012 Israel's Mossad was behind the recent killing of a senior Iranian nuclear scientist, Western intelligence sources told Time Magazine.

Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was killed by a bomb placed on his car by a motorcyclist in Tehran on Wednesday, prompting officials in Iran to blame Israel for the assassination. "Yeah, one more," a senior Israeli official reportedly told Time in reference to Roshan's killing. "I don't feel sad for him."

According to an Israeli defense official, Washington wants to avoid causing further tensions in the region, especially in light of the sensitive situation that has been generated after various reports in the international media that the U.S. and Israel are preparing to strike Iran's nuclear facilities.

The twin developments demonstrated that while the Obama administration has stuck to its promise [the only one kept] not to investigate whether Bush regime officials acted illegally by authorizing the use of harsh interrogation techniques torture, other countries are still interested in determining whether Bush-era anti-terror practices violated international law.

Military Networks 'Not Defensible,' Says General Who Defends Them 12 Jan 2012 The Defense Department's networks, as currently configured, are "not defensible," according to the general in charge of protecting those networks. And if there's a major electronic attack on this country, there may not be much he and his men can legally do to stop it in advance. Gen. Keith Alexander, head of both the National Security Agency and the military's new U.S. Cyber Command, has tens of thousands of hackers, cryptologists, and system administrators serving under him. But at the moment, their ability to protect the Defense Department's information infrastructure -- let alone the broader civilian internet -- is limited. The Pentagon's patchwork quilt of 15,000 different networks is too haphazard to safeguard.
Army brass knew WikiLeaks accused had serious issues 16 Jan 2102 A formal recommendation that Bradley Manning face a court martial has sharpened demands that others also be held accountable for a mountain of classified diplomatic cables being dumped to WikiLeaks almost two years ago. Apart from a refusal by two junior officers to give evidence at Manning's recent pretrial hearing on the grounds they might incriminate themselves, the Pentagon's investigation appears almost entirely centred on what Manning, 24, might have done. Much less attention was given to the failings of a sophisticated, global intelligence system that allowed an unstable young man access to the US government's most secret dossiers.
UK student faces extradition to US after piracy case ruling --Possible five years in US federal prison for linking 13 Jan 2012 A 23-year-old student is facing extradition to the US, and possibly five years in a federal prison, after the British courts ruled he should face charges of copyright infringement for linking to websites hosting pirated content. Richard O'Dwyer, a computer science student at Sheffield Hallam University who had never even left the North of England before his arrest, set up the TVShack.net website in 2007. When TVShack.net was shut down, as part of a coordinated action, O'Dwyer set up a mirror on the .cc domain, and included the title "F*ck the Police" and a photograph of NWA. The US legal request states that he'll face a maximum of five years in prison if found guilty, and will serve at least 85 per cent of his sentence, as well as "any post conviction and post sentencing confinement Mr O'Dwyer might be subject to in the U.S. federal prison system". O'Dwyer is being extradited under controversial laws agreed by Tony Blair in the wake of the September 11 attacks – then billed as essential to the war on [of] terrorism - which are currently being used to try and extradite Gary McKinnon on hacking charges.

TVShack student Richard O'Dwyer to face US trial --A student who created the TVShack website that streamed free films and TV shows online can be extradited to the US for trial, a court ruled today. 13 Jan 2012 Richard O'Dwyer, 23, allegedly earned thousands of pounds through advertising revenue on the site before it was detected and shut down by US authorities. The Sheffield Hallam University undergraduate could be the first British citizen to be extradited for this type of offence, meaning he would effectively be a 'guinea pig' for US copyright law. Mr O'Dwyer's lawyer, Ben Cooper, has argued that the site itself did not store copyrighted material, but instead pointed users in the direction of other sites.
Scientists: UN Soldiers Brought Deadly Superbug to Americas --Haiti had never seen a case of cholera until the arrival of UN peacekeepers. [That's why they went there - to bring it.] 12 Jan 2012 Compelling new scientific evidence suggests United Nations 'peacekeepers' have carried a virulent strain of cholera -- a super bug -- into the Western Hemisphere for the first time. The vicious form of cholera has already killed 7,000 people in Haiti, where it surfaced in a remote village in October 2010. Leading researchers from Harvard Medical School and elsewhere told ABC News that, despite UN denials, there is now a mountain of evidence suggesting the strain originated in Nepal, and was carried to Haiti by Nepalese soldiers who came to Haiti to serve as UN peacekeepers after the earthquake that ravaged the country on Jan. 12, 2010 -- two years ago today.
Michigan's Palisades nuclear plant may be named one of nation's 5 worst --After hitting its 40-year life-span in 2011, its license was extended until 2031. The NRC spent 1,000 extra hours last year inspecting the plant. 15 Jan 2012 The Palisades nuclear power plant [owned by Entergy Nuclear Operations], which sits on the shores of Lake Michigan, could soon be downgraded by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to a status making it among the nation's five worst-performing nuclear plants after a year of accidents, unexpected shutdowns and safety violations. The regional head of the NRC said last week that if performance does not improve, the agency would not hesitate to shut down the plant.
Tel Aviv municipality dismantles homeless tent encampment 15 Jan 2012 The Tel Aviv municipality on Sunday morning dismantled the tent encampment in the city's Hatikva neighborhood, where 36 homeless people have been camping since the summer. The municipality said in a statement that it hopes the people in the encampment will leave peacefully "without the city exercising the authority given to it by the court to evacuate by force." The campers called on social activists to help them prevent the evacuation.
JPMorgan could lose $5 billion from PIIGS exposure: report 14 Jan 2012 JPMorgan Chase & Co could lose up to $5 billion from its exposure to Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain, Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said in an interview with Class CNBC, carried in Italian newspaper Milano Finanza on Saturday. Dimon said the bank was exposed to the five countries (PIIGS) to the tune of around $15 billion. [No worries, Jamie. Obusha will bail you out while simultaneously convincing sheeple (and most MSNBC pundits) that he stands with the '99 percent.']
AP source: House Republicans got discounted loans 14 Jan 2012 Two veteran House Republicans received discounted mortgage loans from the now-defunct Countrywide Financial Corp. under a VIP program, a congressional official said Friday. The discounts went to Reps. Howard McKeon and Elton Gallegly of California, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the loans and requested anonymity. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has been investigating whether members of Congress received VIP discounts. The Associated Press reported previously that four House members had received the discounts.
Four GOP candidates blocked on Va. ballot bid --Gingrich, Perry, Santorum, Huntsman won't be listed 13 Jan 2012 A judge has rejected a last-ditch bid by four Republican presidential candidates to get on Virginia's GOP primary ballot, leaving the March 6 contest only to front-runner Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul. In his ruling, federal District Court Judge John A. Gibney Jr. delivered a judicial spanking to the four candidates - former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. - saying their complaint amounts to sour grapes.
Santorum secures key US evangelical backing 13 Jan 2012 Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has received a powerful shot in the arm as top US evangelical leaders endorsed his White House bid ahead of a crucial South Carolina primary. The endorsement came after about 150 influential Christian conservative leaders met at a ranch outside of Houston, Texas, in hopes of rallying their forces around one candidate before the January 21 vote in the state where evangelicals and social conservatives make up 60 percent of the Republican electorate.
