FBI swarms NY auction house in anthrax false alarm

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) - FBI agents created a stir in Schenectady when they swarmed an auction house wearing hazardous materials suits, reportedly to check out a suspicion that there might be anthrax in the trash at the building.

But the episode Friday turned out to be a false alarm.

New York Surplus Auction owner Les Paine says investigators came to his business as part of an investigation into the discovery at a different location of a vial purportedly containing a holistic anthrax vaccine.

Investigators spent the day rifling through garbage outside the business.

Schenectady County Director of Emergency Management Thomas Constantine says preliminary tests came back negative for any dangerous biological agents.

American al Qaeda member acknowledges Jewish ancestry

(CNN) -- In a new anti-Israel, anti-U.S. video, an American al Qaeda member makes reference to his Jewish ancestry for the first time in an official al Qaeda message.

Adam Yahiye Gadahn, also known as Azzam the American, is seen in an earlier al Qaeda video.

Adam Yahiye Gadahn, also known as Azzam the American, is seen in an earlier al Qaeda video.

In the video, Adam Yahiye Gadahn, also known as Azzam the American, discusses his roots as he castigates U.S. policies and deplores Israel's offensive in Gaza that started in late December 2008 and continued into January.

"Let me here tell you something about myself and my biography, in which there is a benefit and a lesson," Gadahn says, as he elicits support from his fellow Muslims for "our weapons, funds and Jihad against the Jews and their allies everywhere."

"Your speaker has Jews in his ancestry, the last of whom was his grandfather," he says.

Growing up in rural California, Gadahn embraced Islam in the mid-1990s, moved to Pakistan and has appeared in al Qaeda videos before.

He was indicted in the United States in 2006 on charges of treason and material support to al Qaeda, according to the FBI. Gadahn is on the FBI's Most Wanted List, with a reward of up to $1 million leading to his capture. FBI records show Gadahn's date of birth as September 1, 1978.

The video -- in which Gadahn speaks Arabic, with English subtitles -- surfaced on Saturday. This account is based on an English transcript provided by As-Sahab Media, the media production company used by al Qaeda.


Gadahn's Jewish ancestry has been reported in the news media. But terrorism analyst Laura Mansfield says it is the first time Gadahn acknowledged his Jewish ancestry in an official al Qaeda message.

Gadahn says his grandfather was a "Zionist" and "a zealous supporter of the usurper entity, and a prominent member of a number of Zionist hate organizations."

"He used to repeat to me what he claimed are the virtues of this entity and encouraged me to visit it, specifically the city of Tel Aviv, where relatives of ours live," says Gadahn, referring to Israel.

He says his grandfather gave him a book by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called "A Place Among the Nations" -- in which the "rabid Zionist" sets out "feeble arguments and unmasked lies to justify the Jews' rape of Muslim Palestine."

But Gadahn says that despite his youth at the time, he didn't heed his grandfather's words.

"How can a person with an ounce of self-respect possibly stand in the ranks of criminals and killers who have no morals, no mercy, no humanity and indeed, no honor?" he says in reference to Zionists and Israel.

"Isn't it shameful enough for a person to carry the citizenship of America, the symbol of oppression and tyranny and advocate of terror in the world?"

Mansfield thinks the video may have been made between late April and mid-May, before President Obama's speech in Cairo, Egypt, addressing U.S. relations with Muslims.

Gadahn notes Obama's inauguration, Netanyahu's election in February, and Obama's speech in Turkey in April.

Specifically mentioning the Gaza offensive and citing other hot spots such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya and Somalia, where the "Zio-Crusader alliance" is fighting his "brothers," he says "this open-faced aggression" comes as Obama has risen to power.

He scorns Obama's statements in his inaugural address and in Turkey that America isn't and won't be at war with Islam, and "other deceptive, false and sugarcoated words of endearment and respect." He says Obama's language is similar to words Netanyahu uttered in the Knesset in 1996.

Gadahn also backs the idea of targeting "Zio-Crusader" interests anywhere in the world, not just "within Palestine."

BNP leader Nick Griffin pelted with eggs by protesters


BNP leader Nick Griffin pelted with eggs by protesters

BNP leader Nick Griffin had to abandon a press conference outside the Houses of Parliament after protesters barracked him and threw eggs.

Published: 3:31PM BST 09 Jun 2009

Shouting "off our streets Nazi scum", the demonstrators chased him down the street to his car.

Mr Griffin, who has been elected an MEP for the North West of England, was guided to his vehicle by his bodyguards and quickly drove off.

He had arrived at the press conference on College Green in front of Parliament with fellow newly-elected BNP MEP Andrew Brons.

Mr Griffin started by attacking articles from the day's newspapers which criticised him and his party.

But he had only been speaking for a few minutes when the protesters appeared, chanting and waving banners reading: "Stop the fascist BNP."

Eggs were thrown at Mr Griffin and his bodyguards bundled him away through the crowd.

The demonstrators kicked and hit his car with their placards before cheering as he drove off.

Protest organiser Weyman Bennett, national secretary of Unite Against Fascism, said he believed it was important to stand up to the BNP.

"The majority of people did not vote for the BNP, they did not vote at all. The BNP was able to dupe them into saying that they had an answer to people's problems.

"They presented themselves as a mainstream party. The reality was because the turnout was so low, they actually got elected."

Coast to Coast anthrax attacks germ warfare research - June 11 2009

Journalists and filmmakers Bob Coen and Eric Nadler discussed their work on the untold story of the 2001 anthrax attacks, the dark secrets of germ warfare research, and how it ties in with the untimely deaths of microbiologists around the world. Biodefense researcher Bruce Ivins, the suspect the FBI eventually named in the anthrax attacks, apparently committed suicide before he could be brought to trial. Ivins' co-workers at Fort Detrick in Maryland, whom Nadler & Coen spoke with, said his death was convenient-- and that it was a set-up. They claimed the kind of equipment needed to make the 'weaponized' anthrax used in the 2001 attacks wasn't available to Ivins.

Coen & Nadler also investigated the mysterious "suicide" of biological warfare expert David Kelly, who worked as a UN weapons inspector in Iraq, as well as at the UK's Porton Down in the Defence Microbiology Division. Forensic evidence showed his death was a murder, said Nadel, who noted there were no fingerprints on the knife he allegedly used to cut his wrist. Kelly may have worked with "Dr. Death" (Wouter Basson) in South Africa, where ethno-specific bioweapons were being developed in the 1980s, said Coen. They speculated Kelly might have wanted to get out of his field and reveal secrets, and thus had to eliminated as a "man who knew too much."

A Soviet biological warfare expert, who defected to the UK, Vladimir Pasechnik, died of a "stroke" in 2001 and may have been another case of someone who knew too much, said Nadler. The big picture is that there's a germ warfare race underway globally, and that the corporate sector is profiting from it, he continued. The late Stephen Dresch, an investigator who followed the trail, referred to the "international bioweapons mafia," which he said included university professors, spooks, corporate leaders, and European industrialists. To raise public awareness of this issue, and for further information, see Nadel & Coen's Get Involved page.

Generation Rx

First hour guest, writer/producer Kevin Miller talked about his film project, Generation Rx, which looks at how serious side effects such as suicide are associated with psychiatric drugs like Prozac. The pharmaceutical industry has acted in collusion with the FDA to downplay or hush-up the dangers of these substances, he asserted.

Lawsuits Force Disclosures by C.I.A.

June 10, 2009
Lawsuits Force Disclosures by C.I.A.
By SCOTT SHANE
NYT

WASHINGTON — So far, President Obama has managed to curb Congressional calls for a national commission to investigate Bush administration detention policies. But Mr. Obama cannot control the courts, and lawsuits are turning out to be the force driving disclosures about brutal interrogations.

Mr. Obama’s decision in April to release legal opinions from the Bush administration on interrogation, which were sought in a lawsuit, has opened the door to the disclosure of other documents. That poses a problem for the Central Intelligence Agency as it tries to comply with Mr. Obama’s proclaimed policy of openness while preserving the secrecy that agency officials view as the foundation of intelligence collection.

In new responses to lawsuits, the C.I.A. has agreed to release information from two previously secret sources: statements by high-level members of Al Qaeda who say they have been mistreated, and a 2004 report by the agency’s inspector general questioning both the legality and the effectiveness of coercive interrogations.

The Qaeda prisoners’ statements, made at tribunals at the detention camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, were previously excised from transcripts of the proceedings, but they will be at least partly disclosed by this Friday, according to a court filing. The report by the inspector general, whose secret findings in April 2004 led to a suspension of the C.I.A. interrogation program, will be released by June 19, the Justice Department said in a letter to a federal judge in New York.

Precisely how much the agency will disclose, however, remains to be determined, as the administration is clearly struggling to decide where to draw the line. In both cases, which involve separate Freedom of Information Act lawsuits filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the documents are likely to be redacted to withhold information the C.I.A. still considers especially delicate.

But in April, when Mr. Obama released the Bush administration’s legal opinions, which included extensive descriptions of the C.I.A.’s interrogation methods, the agency lost a major rationale for withholding the other documents, and it agreed to review them again for possible release.

Mr. Obama began his presidency with a pledge of “a new era of openness” and overruled strong objections from the C.I.A. in disclosing the interrogation memorandums.

He has proved wary, however, of bogging down his broader agenda in divisive disputes about torture, and he has successfully pressed most Congressional Democrats to oppose calls for a national commission on the Bush administration’s interrogation and surveillance programs. The Senate Intelligence Committee is reviewing the interrogation program, but behind closed doors.

Last month, Mr. Obama reversed plans to release hundreds of photographs showing abuse of prisoners, saying the pictures would add little to public knowledge and could endanger American troops. The C.I.A. has also declined to release to former Vice President Dick Cheney two memorandums that Mr. Cheney asserts show the effectiveness of harsh interrogations.

Leon E. Panetta, the C.I.A. director, sought to set limits this week in a court declaration opposing disclosure to the A.C.L.U. of documents related to 92 interrogation videotapes, including some showing waterboarding, that the C.I.A. destroyed in 2005.

Mr. Panetta said in the court filing, reported Monday night by The Washington Post, that agency officials had decided that no documents of a sample of 65 could be released without causing “exceptionally grave damage to the national security” and providing “ready-made ammunition for Al Qaeda propaganda.”

Jameel Jaffer, a lawyer for the A.C.L.U., said his organization accepted that there should be limits to disclosures and was not seeking, for example, intelligence revealed during harsh interrogations or the identities of rank-and-file C.I.A. officers.

“What we want disclosed is really quite narrow — information on how the techniques were authorized and how they were used,” Mr. Jaffer said.

Mr. Panetta’s logic, Mr. Jaffer said, would defeat the purpose of the Freedom of Information Act in exposing government misconduct, with the worst abuses being kept secret because they could fuel the most effective propaganda. “Americans have a right to know the full story of the Bush administration torture program,” he said.

The releases expected this month will not begin to exhaust the anticipated disclosures on interrogation. The Justice Department’s long-awaited ethics report on the lawyers who wrote the interrogation memorandums is set for release this summer. A criminal investigation of the destruction of interrogation videotapes by John H. Durham, a federal prosecutor, is still under way.

The A.C.L.U., one of a dozen advocacy groups fighting in court for details of the Bush administration security programs, plans to file another lawsuit on Thursday, this one seeking additional White House and Justice Department documents on interrogation. The same day, the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, a coalition of clergy members, will meet with Obama administration officials to argue for a national commission, said a spokesman, Steve Fox.

The Democratic chairmen of the Senate and House judiciary committees, Senator Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont and Representative John Conyers of Michigan, continue to press for such a commission, though their efforts so far show no sign of winning majority support.

A spokesman for Mr. Leahy, David Carle, said the senator saw the commission proposal as “an uphill battle,” but he added, “He has kept the option alive.”

Ohio Family Outraged Over Police Shooting Dog

Tuesday, Jun 9, 2009 @09:31am CST

(Blue Ash, OH) -- A family from Blue Ash, Ohio is outraged after finding out the police shot and killed their dog.

Scott and Sharon Bullock gave the Chihuahua mix to their son for his birthday a few years ago.

When they returned home last Friday they found blood, three bullets and a note to call the Blue Ash Police Department about their dog.

Apparently the dog got out of their backyard and the two officers couldn't catch him.

Cops say they had him cornered on the front porch but when they reached out to pick him up, the dog bit one of the officers.

That's when they shot it three times.

The Bullocks admit they were wrong to leave their dog outside, but say they just can't come to terms with why two grown men had such a problem handling a five-pound dog.

They say the SPCA should have been contacted about coming out to get the dog.

The officer who shot the Bullocks' beloved Chihuahua insists he was merely following procedure.

Senate vote a sea change for tobacco

A landmark tobacco regulation bill advanced in the Senate on Monday amid growing pressure for the House to quickly accept the final product and lock up a long-sought victory for anti-smoking forces — and for President Barack Obama.

Seven Republicans joined 52 Democrats on the 61-30 roll call to cut off debate on the measure, which authorizes the Food and Drug Administration to regulate the industry with a mandate to reduce teenage smoking by restricting advertising aimed at young audiences.

To win over hesitant Republicans on the cloture vote, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) pledged that he would work to ensure that tobacco state lawmakers still have a chance this week to present their alternative regulatory scheme — which is now technically out of order. The narrowness of Reid’s margin — a supermajority of 60 was required — reflects the dicey politics of the Senate. But going forward, proponents of the bill are in the driver’s seat, and passage is all but assured in the next few days.

Amid the greater focus on Obama’s larger health care reform agenda, the FDA’s new authority can get lost in the shuffle. But it reflects a sea change in tobacco politics over the past decade and is the latest in a series of incremental steps by the new White House and Democratic Congress this year that would, in another time, receive more attention.

After being stymied repeatedly by former President George W. Bush, Democrats wasted no time in January before moving through legislation to expand the State Children’s Health Insurance Program to cover an additional 4.1 million children, chiefly from working-class families. And Obama’s economic recovery program in February devoted tens of billions to health care investments, from Medicaid and community health centers to new information technology and research into the comparative effectiveness of different medical treatments.

Tobacco has paid heavily for this shift, beginning with a near 62 cents-per-pack increase in federal cigarette taxes to pay for the SCHIP expansion. And to help pay for the new FDA regulatory role, the industry will be subject to user fees beginning at $235 million next year and tripling to $712 million over the next decade.

The Politico 44 Story Widget Requires Adobe Flash Player.

The Senate vote captured the change in old alliances that once made tobacco a major power broker in Congress, even beyond its own domain. Sugar- and cotton-state Democrats from the South voted for cloture, for example, and among the Republicans supporting Reid’s motion was no less than Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who chairs the Republicans’ Senate campaign committee.

“It’s a less-than-perfect solution to a bad problem,” Cornyn told POLITICO. “Tobacco kills 400,000 people a year in this country. We’ve tried litigation, and the only thing that happened is a bunch of lawyers got rich. Ordinarily, I would not be an advocate for more government regulation. But if this is going to be a legal product, sold in America, I think this is a reasonable step.”

CIA urges judge to keep detainee papers secret

WASHINGTON – CIA Director Leon Panetta told a federal judge Monday that releasing documents about the agency's terror interrogations would gravely damage national security.

Panetta sent a 24-page missive to New York federal judge Alvin Hellerstein, arguing that release of agency cables describing tough interrogation methods used on al-Qaida suspects would tell the enemy far too much about U.S. counterterrorism work.

The CIA director filed the papers in a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union. The suit has already led to the unveiling of Bush administration legal memos authorizing harsh methods — among them waterboarding, a type of simulated drowning, and slamming suspects into walls — and a fight over releasing long-secret photos of abused detainees.

"I have determined that the disclosure of intelligence about al-Qaida reasonably could be expected to result in exceptionally grave damage to the national security by informing our enemies of what we knew about them, and when, and in some instances, how we obtained the intelligence," Panetta wrote.

Panetta acknowledges in the court papers that the CIA destroyed 92 videotapes of detainee interrogations that took place in 2002. Officials have previously said that a dozen of those tapes showed the so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques," which critics call torture. The destruction of the videotapes has spurred a criminal investigation into why they were destroyed.

The tapes — and the interrogations — are also an issue in the ACLU's lawsuit.

The CIA is fighting efforts to force release of the documents, including dozens of agency cables. The cables, Panetta said, describe in detail the methods used on terror suspects, the information gleaned from them and what U.S. officials still did not know at the time the suspects were being questioned.

The CIA last month denied a request by former Vice President Dick Cheney to declassify secret memos that detail whether valuable intelligence was gained from the use of the harsh interrogation techniques. Cheney said the documents show that the tactics prevented terrorist attacks and saved lives, contrary to the Obama administration's criticism of the Bush-era policies.

President Barack Obama also said last month he would try to block the court-ordered release of photos showing U.S. troops abusing prisoners, reversing his position out of concern the pictures would "further inflame anti-American opinion" and endanger U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

FBI director defends use of informants in mosques

LOS ANGELES – FBI Director Robert Mueller on Monday defended the agency's use of informants within U.S. mosques, despite complaints from Muslim organizations that worshippers and clerics are being targeted instead of possible terrorists.

Mueller's comments came just days after a Michigan Muslim organization asked the Justice Department to investigate complaints that the FBI is asking the faithful to spy on Islamic leaders and worshippers. Similar alarm followed the disclosure earlier this year that the FBI planted a spy in Southern California mosques.

"We don't investigate places, we investigate individuals," Mueller said during a brief meeting with reporters in Los Angeles.

"To the extent that there may be evidence or other information of criminal wrongdoings, then we will ... undertake those investigations," Mueller added. "We will continue to do it."

He called relations with U.S. Muslims "very good," but acknowledged disagreements without providing specifics.

The Council of Islamic Organizations of Michigan sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder after mosques and other groups reported members of the community have been asked to monitor people coming to mosques and donations they make. The FBI's Detroit office has denied the allegations.

In the California case, information about the informant who spied on the Islamic Center of Irvine came out at a February detention hearing for a brother-in-law of Osama bin Laden's bodyguard, an Afghan native and naturalized U.S. citizen named Ahmadullah Niazi who is accused of lying on his citizenship and passport applications about terrorism ties.

Local Muslim leaders say they suspected since at least since 2006 that the FBI was trying to infiltrate Muslim organizations in the area.

"History disputes Mr. Mueller's statements, at least in Southern California," said Shakeel Syed, executive of the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California.

"It doesn't alleviate anything. It only continues to show the sheer arrogance demonstrated by the bureau in holding Muslim community members, clerics, mosques, as suspects," Syed said. He is among community leaders in court seeking government records of surveillance.

FBI agents and prosecutors say spying on mosques is one of the best weapons to uncover lurking terrorists or threats to national security, but it has posed a politically and legally thorny issue with Muslims who see themselves as unjustly monitored.

"The FBI needs to do what it needs to do, certainly," Syed said. But the agency is "trying to incite and entrap" law-abiding people.

Mueller also said that there will be no change in the FBI's priorities in the new administration.

"I would not expect that we would in any way take our foot off the pedal of addressing counterterrorism," he said.

"My expectation is that we'll see an uptick in terms of resources devoted toward our domestic criminal responsibilities, but we will not ... relax our responsibilities when it come to counterterrorism or counterintelligence," he added.

China Requires Censoring Software on New PCs

China to require Web-censoring software be included
with all computers sold in the country

BEIJING — China has issued a sweeping directive requiring all personal computers sold in the country to include sophisticated software that can filter out pornography and other “unhealthy information” from the Internet.

The software, which manufacturers must install on all new PC’s starting July 1, allows the government to update computers regularly with an ever-changing list of banned Web sites.

The rules, issued last month, ratchet up Internet restrictions already among the most stringent in the world. China regularly blocks Web sites that discuss the Dalai Lama, the 1989 crackdown on Tiananmen Square protesters, and the Falun Gong, the banned spiritual movement. But free-speech advocates say they fear the new software could make it even more difficult for China’s 300 million Internet users to access uncensored news and information.

“This is a very bad thing,” said Charles Mok, chairman of the Internet Society, an advocacy group in Hong Kong. “It’s like downloading spyware onto your computer, but the government is the spy.”

Shocking David Carradine hanging photo surfaces online: The family of David Carradine has asked U.S. authorities to help unravel the mystery of his death, amid conflicting reports about how his body was found hanging naked in a Bangkok hotel.

Speculation about the death of Carradine, 72, who starred in the 1970s-era U.S. television show "Kung Fu" and the more recent "Kill Bill" movies, has deepened since his body was discovered on Thursday by a maid in the Bangkok hotel suite where he was staying while filming the movie "Stretch."

Thai Rathis a Thai language daily newspaper published in Bangkok and distributed nationwide.Thai Rath is the oldest and best-selling newspaper in Thailand, claiming a circulation in excess of 1 million copies daily. Thai Rath is the publisher, who was published David Carradine hanging Photo. The family of David Carradine is disturbed by this Photo and may be some actions can be taken by them.

According to The Insider, Family members of David Carradine are “profoundly disturbed” by the publication of a forensics photo that allegedly shows the late actor at the scene of his death and are threatening legal action against any media outlets that reprint any of the images.

---

A grainy photo published Saturday on the cover of the tabloid Thai Rath shows a naked body suspended from a clothes bar in a hotel closet, with hands apparently bound together above the head and feet on the floor, the Associated Press reports. The face is blacked out and other areas are obscured.

While the paper does not indicate the source of the image, Thai police say they believe it is a picture of Carradine’s body taken by a forensics team that examined the Bangkok, Thailand hotel room where his body was discovered last week.

David’s actor brother Keith Carradine said in a statement the family was “profoundly disturbed by the release in Thailand of photographs taken at the scene of David Carradine’s death.” The statement adds: “The family wants it understood that, per (family) attorney Mark Geragos, any persons, publications or media outlets will be fully prosecuted for invasion of privacy and causing severe emotional distress if the photos are published.”

Geragos has also requested that the FBI also investigate David’s mysterious death and the on Friday, in hopes that the family is seeking an independent autopsy by famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden to determine whether another person could have been involved. Results of an autopsy performed Friday in Bangkok were not expected for at least three weeks.

Geragos says Carradine’s body is being brought back to the U.S. this weekend for a second autopsy, which he believes could help shed light on whether foul play was involved in the “Kung Fu” star’s death.

In a response to a review of his book Blood on the Altar: The Secret History of the World’s Most Dangerous Secret Society, author Craig Heimbichner mentions several prominent members of Ordo Templi Orientis, the order of the Temple of the East, or the Order of Oriental Templars, including John Carradine, father of the recently deceased David Carradine who allegedly planned to investigate and disclose secret societies.

Martin P. Starr, author of The Unknown God: W.T. Smith and the Thelemites, also claims the elder Carradine was a member of Aleister Crowley’s co-masonic Ordo Templi Orientis.

In Sex and Rockets: The Occult World or Jacks Parson, John Carter and Robert Anton Wilson write that Carradine is said to have read poetry at the opening of the Agapé Lodge of the OTO in Pasadena, California.
