“The USS Cole bombing was a terrorist attack against the United States Navy guided-missile destroyer USS Cole (DDG-67) on 12 October 2000, while it was harbored and being refueled in the Yemeni port of Aden. 17 American sailors were killed, and 39 were injured.[1] This event was the deadliest attack against a United States Naval vessel since 1987.

The terrorist organization al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack. A U.S. judge has held Sudan liable for the attack, while another has released over $13 million in Sudanese frozen assets to the relatives of those killed. The American Navy has reconsidered their rules of engagement in response to this attack.”

“(CNN) — The U.S. government has dropped charges against Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the suspect in the bombing of the destroyer USS Cole, according to a Pentagon spokesman.

The charges were dropped “without prejudice” by Susan Crawford, convening authority at the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to Pentagon spokesman Cmdr. Jeffrey Gordon. The proceeding did not address specifics of the government’s case against al-Nashiri, who remains a “high value” detainee held at Guantanamo.

In removing the charges without prejudice, prosecutors can resubmit charges at a later date while at the same time complying with President Barack Obama’s order to the military to hold off on cases for four months.

On his first day in office, Obama ordered the halt, requiring prosecutors to seek delays in the 14 active cases before military commissions there. But the judge, Col. James Pohl, ordered arraignment for Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri to go ahead as scheduled on Monday.

With this move, all cases at Guantanamo are now in line with the president’s order to halt court proceedings at the detention center, according to Gordon.
Al-Nashiri is accused of planning the October 2000 bombing of the Cole while it was in the Yemeni port of Aden. The attack killed 17 American sailors and crippled the vessel, which returned to service in 2002.

The Office of Military Commissions, which manages the prosecutions of suspected terrorists, said last week that it might have to temporarily drop charges against al-Nashiri to comply with the presidential order.

When prosecutors asked for a continuance in the trial, Pohl denied the request, saying the government’s “argument for continuances were unpersuasive,” according to a copy of his opinion. Pohl noted there had been no previous requests for a delay, and that the public’s interest in a speedy trial would be harmed by further delay.

Al-Nashiri was captured in 2002. He was held in secret locations until being transferred to Guantanamo Bay in 2006.

Meanwhile, the White House has invited families of sailors who died in the Cole bombing to meet with Obama on Friday.

A number of the families were called Thursday afternoon, according to Andrew Hall, the lawyer who represented families.

The invitation was for the families to attend “without their lawyers,” according to Hall. They were not told why they were going to meet with Obama, he added.
According to the White House schedule for Friday, Obama will meet privately with families of the Cole attack and also with families of victims of the 9/11 attacks.

“The president wants to talk with these families about resolving the issues involved with closing Guantanamo Bay — while keeping the safety and security of the American people as his top priority,” the schedule said.”

“EDS was fading before HP bought them. They basically got into a multibillion dollar fixed-price contract with the government (NMCI) that they completely underestimated the costs for and wound up losing a fortune. HP acquired them in the death spiral when they were ridiculously cheap.

No. Sorry, but no.

Carly put the company in a position to be profitable again–in the short term. She killed off R&D, she killed off the long-term projects and plans, and she turned the company into a “PC and printer” maker. That’s all they do anymore. Nobody cares about the odd bit of HP-UX gear they sell (and would kill off, if the US government would let them), they spun off the scientific instrumentation into a new company (thank god!), and now they can’t even enter the generic consumer product market anymore.

Fiorina destroyed the company, Hurd kept driving it towards the cliff.”

“Meet Tor, The Military-Made Privacy Network That Counts Edward Snowden As A Fan 
Posted: 07/18/2013 7:45 am EDT 
Updated: 08/19/2013 2:23 pm EDT 
When the U.S. Navy created Tor, a software that enables people to use the Internet anonymously, it didn’t envision someone like Edward Snowden.
Quite the opposite: military programmers originally built the software in the mid-1990s to support government spying operations.

Yet last month, a photograph of Snowden, who leaked a trove of secrets about U.S. government surveillance, showed a sticker on his laptop supporting the Tor Project, the nonprofit that runs the anonymity network.

The image underscored the diverse — and sometimes conflicting — community of people using and supporting Tor to communicate anonymously on the Web.
Tor, which can be downloaded online, operates like a browser — albeit slower because it is bouncing packets of data across several continents to protect anonymity. Journalists, whistleblowers, domestic abuse victims and dissidents living under repressive regimes use Tor to bypass government censors and prevent their online movements from being tracked. The U.S. State Department provides funding to the Tor Project to promote Internet freedom in other countries.

But the anonymizing software has also been used by whistleblowers to leak sensitive U.S. government secrets. Though it’s unclear whether Snowden used Tor to disclose details about NSA surveillance to reporters, Wikileaks has reportedly used the software to protect whistleblowers.

Tor‘s importance to Wikileaks cannot be understated,” Wikileaks founder Julian Assange told Rolling Stone in 2010.

While some use Tor to traffic government secrets, criminals also use Tor to peddle drugs, guns, murder-for-hire services, hacking tools and child pornography outside the reach of law enforcement, according to security experts.

And yet, for the Tor network to be truly anonymous, it must protect all who are using it — even those whose actions are condemned by the U.S. government, Christopher Soghoian, the principal technologist at the American Civil Liberties Union, told The Huffington Post.

“When you create a technology that allows activists to communicate anonymously, you don’t get to pick which activists use it,” Soghoian said.

“If you want a network that’s safe for dissidents and journalists, you have to allow the pedophiles, too,” he added. “You have to take the good with the bad.”

Tor masks people’s online activity by routing traffic through layers of servers, or “nodes,” around the world. Its creators likened the encryption method to layers of an onion, giving the software its original name: “The Onion Router.” About 500,000 people use Tor every day, according to the Tor Network, which consists of a global network of more than 3,000 volunteers who host servers and promote freedom of speech and online privacy

Kelley Misata, a Tor Project spokeswoman, said recent disclosures about NSA surveillance have raised the public’s consciousness about anonymity tools.
“With the recent news out there, people are becoming a bit more aware of prying eyes in their traffic,” she said.

But the NSA revelations have also prompted Tor‘s supporters to disclose the network’s limits in fighting government surveillance.

“By itself, Tor does not protect the actual communications content once it leaves the Tor network,” the Tor Project said in a blog post last month. The group said the software is “a key building block to build systems where it is no longer possible to go to a single party and obtain the full metadata, communications frequency, or contents.”

Soghoian said activity on Tor is unlikely to evade NSA surveillance. Yet its multiple layers of encryption remain useful for people evading government surveillance and censorship in Iran, Syria or China, as well as criminals looking to escape the watchful eye of law enforcement, he said.
“Just because the NSA can watch what’s on the Tor network doesn’t mean the sheriff in a small town can,” he said.

Or the FBI. In 2011, the FBI said an investigation into an illegal child pornography site was stymied because the site operators used the software to mask their location.

“Because everyone (all Internet traffic) connected to the Tor network is anonymous, there is not currently a way to trace the origin of the website. As such, no other investigative leads exist,” the FBI said at the time.

Joseph V. DeMarco, the former head of the cyber crime unit at the U.S. attorney’s office in New York, said a criminal who uses Tor “means that avenue of investigation is blocked off.”

DeMarco said the FBI has other investigative methods for tracking down cyber criminals, including search warrants and informants. But Tor makes it “extremely difficult, if not virtually impossible” for law enforcement to identify some illegal activity on the Internet.
“Does that mean some people will get away with crimes? Sure,” he said.

Some security experts have suggested that Tor‘s backers [Fiorina’s Intranet operators] should be held responsible for supporting technology that thwarts criminal investigations.

“Ultimately, as with states, anonymization services should be held accountable for their users’ behavior if they do not cooperate with law enforcement,” Robert Knake, who is now director of cybersecurity for the White House, told a congressional committee in 2010.

But law enforcement also uses Tor to infiltrate illegal websites and catch criminals who use the software to hide from them, according to Soghoian.
In addition, Tor‘s creators — those in the government — say the more people using the network, the better. Tor‘s wide range of users, including those engaging in illegal activity, only further assist the software’s original purpose: to cloak U.S. spying efforts, according to Michael Reed, one of Tor’s original developers.

“Of course, we knew those would be other unavoidable uses for the technology,” Reed wrote in an online forum in 2011, describing Tor‘s use by criminals, dissidents and those seeking porn. “But that was immaterial to the problem at hand we were trying to solve (and if those uses were going to give us more cover traffic to better hide what we wanted to use the network for, all the better…)”

For now, the Tor Project says it is focused on improving the software’s image by attending conferences to educate law enforcement and dispel the notion that Tor is primarily a haven for criminal activity.

“We live in a world where if you use anonymizing tools, people assume it’s for nefarious reasons,” Misata, the Tor Project spokeswoman, said. “We’re trying to put the word out that they can be used for very benign reasons. As more people use it, it will feel less scary.”

And as more people use it, it becomes easier for Tor users to blend into the crowd and remain anonymous.
“Anonymity loves company,” she said.”

“In 1900 the Society produced Fabianism and the Empire, the first statement of its views on foreign affairs, drafted by Bernard Shaw and incorporating the suggestions of 150 Fabian members. It was directed against the liberal individualism of those such as John Morley and Sir William Harcourt.[17] It claimed that the classical liberal political economy was outdated, and that imperialism was the new stage of the international polity. The question was whether Britain would be the centre of a world empire or whether it would lose its colonies and end up as just two islands in the North Atlantic. It expressed support for Britain in the Boer War because small nations, such as the Boers, were anachronisms in the age of empires.[17] In order to hold onto the Empire, the British needed to fully exploit the trade opportunities secured by war; maintain the British armed forces in a high state of readiness to defend the Empire; the creation of a citizen army to replace the professional army; the Factory Acts would be amended to extend to 21 the age for half-time employment, so that the thirty hours gained would be used in “a combination of physical exercises, technical education, education in civil citizenship…and field training in the use of modern weapons“.[18]

“Undercover agent in al-Qaeda bomb plot ‘was British’
11 May 2012
From the section US & Canada
The man who foiled a Yemen-based al-Qaeda “underwear bomb” plot was a British man of Middle Eastern origin, according to US media.

UK officials declined to comment on the reports, but earlier this week the US said foreign agencies were involved in the operation.

The agent was sent by al-Qaeda to attack a US-bound plane, but left Yemen and gave the device to US intelligence.

The US insists the bomb never posed a threat to the public.

Western passport-holders have long been seen as prime targets for militant groups seeking to plan attacks.

However, as well as reporting that the secret agent was a British citizen, NBC News in the US also says UK intelligence agencies were “heavily involved” in his recruitment.

The BBC’s Paul Adams, in Washington, says it is unorthodox for intelligence agencies to disclose details about each others’ operations.

If true, the revelations about the undercover agent could raise eyebrows in UK intelligence agencies, he adds.

The US is conducting an inquiry into the leak of information, which Defence Secretary Leon Panetta said could hamper intelligence gathering.

“When these leaks take place, I can’t tell you how much they damage our ability to be able to pursue our intelligence efforts,” Mr Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon.

‘Custom fit’
Details of the operation have emerged over the course of this week.

US intelligence learned in April of a plot by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), based in Yemen.

The group planned to attack a US-bound plane with a sophisticated bomb hidden in a passenger’s underwear, an updated version of a 2009 device that evaded airport security.

Officials have described the bomb as a “custom fit” device that would have been hard to detect in airport security checks.

It was said to have two forms of detonator and no metal parts, making it more sophisticated than the device that failed to explode on Christmas Day 2009.

It then emerged that the would-be bomber was an undercover agent who had been recruited to infiltrate the group.

When he was dispatched by al-Qaeda to undertake the suicide mission, the agent left Yemen with the bomb and delivered it to the CIA.

The agent is now reported to be safe in Saudi Arabia while FBI analysts in the US are studying the device.

USS Cole link killed
Experts quoted in the US media say both the 2012 and 2009 bombs bear the hallmarks of AQAP master bomb-maker Ibrahim Hassan Tali al-Asiri.

His name has also been linked to a plot in October 2010 to bomb a Chicago-bound plane using a device disguised as a printer cartridge. That plan, which AQAP claimed as its own, was also foiled with the help of the Saudi authorities.

The undercover agent is also reported to have provided intelligence that led the CIA to conduct a drone strike in Yemen on Sunday that killed AQAP leader Fahd al-Quso.

Quso was wanted in connection with the bombing of the American destroyer USS Cole in Yemen 12 years ago. The US was offering a $5m (£3.1m) reward for information leading to his capture or death.

In a separate development on Tuesday the Pentagon said the US had restarted military training with security forces in Yemen, which had been put on hold because of political unrest.”

“8(a) Business Development Program[edit]
The 8(a) Business Development Program assists in the development of small businesses owned and operated by individuals who are socially and economically disadvantaged, such as women and minorities. The following ethnic groups are classified as eligible: Black Americans; Hispanic Americans; Native Americans (American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, or Native Hawaiians); Asian Pacific Americans (persons with origins from Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Japan, China (including Hong Kong), Taiwan, Laos, Cambodia (Kampuchea), Vietnam, Korea, The Philippines, U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (Republic of Palau), Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Samoa, Macao, Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, or Nauru); Subcontinent Asian Americans (persons with origins from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, the Maldives Islands or Nepal). In 2011, the SBA, along with the FBI and the IRS, uncovered a massive scheme to defraud this program. Civilian employees of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, working in concert with an employee of Alaska Native Corporation Eyak Technology LLC allegedly submitted fraudulent bills to the program, totaling over 20 million dollars, and kept the money for their own use.[26] It also alleged that the group planned to steer a further 780 million dollars towards their favored contractor.[27]”

“Al Jazeera Satellite Channel now known as (AJA) was launched on 1 November 1996 following the closure of the BBC’s Arabic language television station, a joint venture with Orbit Communications Company. The BBC channel had closed after a year and a half when the Saudi government attempted to suppress information, including a graphic report on executions and prominent dissident views.[22]

The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa, provided a loan of QAR 500 million ($137 million) to sustain Al Jazeera through its first five years, as Hugh Miles detailed in his book Al Jazeera: The Inside Story of the Arab News Channel That Is Challenging the West. Shares were held by private investors as well as the Qatar government.

Al Jazeera’s first day on the air was 1 November 1996. It offered 6 hours of programming per day; increased to 12 hours by the end of 1997. It was broadcast to the immediate neighborhood as a terrestrial signal, and on cable, as well as through satellites (which was also free to users in the Arab world), although Qatar, like many other Arab countries, barred private individuals from having satellite dishes until 2001.

At the time of Al Jazeera’s launch, Arabsat was the only satellite broadcasting to the Middle East, and for the first year could only offer Al Jazeera a weak C-band transponder that needed a large satellite dish for reception. A more powerful Ku-band transponder became available as a peace-offering after its user, Canal France International, accidentally beamed 30 minutes of pornography into ultraconservative Saudi Arabia.[23]

Al Jazeera was not the first such broadcaster in the Middle East; a number had appeared since the Arabsatsatellite, a Saudi Arabia-based venture of 21 Arab governments, took orbit in 1985. The unfolding of Operation Desert Storm on CNN International underscored the power of live television in current events. While other local broadcasters in the region would assiduously avoid material embarrassing to their home governments (Qatar had its own official TV station as well), Al Jazeera was pitched as an impartial news source and platform for discussing issues relating to the Arab world.

In presenting “The opinion and the other opinion” (the station’s motto), it did not take long for Al Jazeera to shock local viewers by presenting Israelis speaking Hebrew on Arab TV for the first time.[citation needed] Lively and far-ranging talk shows, particularly a popular, confrontational one called The Opposite Direction, were a constant source of controversy regarding issues of morality and religion. This prompted a torrent of criticism from the conservative voices among the region’s press. It also led to official complaints and censures from neighboring governments. Some jammed Al Jazeera’s terrestrial broadcast or expelled its correspondents. In 1999, the Algerian government reportedly cut power to several major cities in order to censor one broadcast. There were also commercial repercussions: Saudi Arabia reportedly pressured advertisers to avoid the channel, to great effect. Al Jazeera was also becoming a favorite sounding board for militant groups such as Hamas and Chechen separatists.

Al Jazeera was the only international news network to have correspondents in Iraq during the Operation Desert Fox bombing campaign in 1998. In a precursor of a pattern to follow, its exclusive video clips were highly prized by Western media.”

“The Fabian Society founded the London School of Economics and Political Science in 1895 “for the betterment of society,” now one of the leading institutions in the world, an incubator of influential politicians, economists, journalists, prime ministers and liberal billionaires.
Today, the society functions primarily as a think tank and is one of 15 socialist societies affiliated with the Labour Party. Similar societies exist in Australia (the Australian Fabian Society), in Canada (the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation and the now disbanded League for Social Reconstruction), in Sicily (Sicilian Fabian Society) and in New Zealand.”

[Fabian co-founder] Henry Havelock Ellis, known as Havelock Ellis (2 February 1859 – 8 July 1939), was an English physician, writer, Progressive intellectual and social reformer who studied human sexuality. He was co-author of the first medical textbook in English on homosexuality in 1897, and also published works on a variety of sexual practices and inclinations, including transgender psychology. He is credited with introducing the notions of narcissism and autoeroticism, later adopted by psychoanalysis. He served as president of the Galton Institute and, like many intellectuals of his era, supported eugenics.[1] …. Ellis was a supporter of eugenics, in line with many others of that era. He served as vice-president to the Eugenics Education Society and wrote on the subject, among others, in The Task of Social Hygiene:

Eventually, it seems evident, a general system, whether private or public, whereby all personal facts, biological and mental, normal and morbid, are duly and systematically registered, must become inevitable if we are to have a real guide as to those persons who are most fit, or most unfit to carry on the race.

The superficially sympathetic man flings a coin to the beggar; the more deeply sympathetic man builds an almshouse for him so he need no longer beg; but perhaps the most radically sympathetic of all is the man who arranges that the beggar shall not be born.

Ellis resigned from his position of Fellow of the Eugenics Society over their stance on sterilization in January 1931.[10]” 

“Anthony Charles Lynton Blair (born 6 May 1953[1][2]) is a British Labour Party politician, who served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1997 to 2007. He now runs a consultancy business and performs charitable work. Blair was the Member of Parliament (MP) for Sedgefield from 1983 to 2007 and Leader of the Labour Party from 1994 to 2007. Blair led Labour to a landslide victory in the 1997 general election, winning 418 seats, the most the party has ever held. The party went on to win two more elections under his leadership: in 2001, in which it won another landslide victory, and in 2005, with a reduced majority.

Blair was elected Labour Party leader in the leadership election of July 1994, following the sudden death of his predecessor, John Smith. Under Blair’s leadership, the party used the phrase “New Labour” to distance it from previous Labour policies and its opposition to the traditional conception of socialism. Blair declared support for a new conception that he referred to as “social-ism”, involving politics that recognised individuals as socially interdependent, and advocated social justice, cohesion, equal worth of each citizen, and equal opportunity.[3] Critics of Blair denounced him for having the Labour Party abandon genuine socialism and accepting capitalism.[4]

Supporters, including the party’s public opinion pollster Philip Gould, stated that after four consecutive general election defeats, Labour had to demonstrate that it had made a decisive break from its left-wing past, in order to win again.[5]

In May 1997, the Labour Party won a landslide general election victory, the largest in its history, allowing the 43-year-old Blair to become the youngest Prime Minister since Lord Liverpool in 1812. He attained early personal popularity, receiving a 93% public approval rating in September 1997, after his public response to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.[6][7][8] In the first years of the New Labour government, Blair’s government introduced the National Minimum Wage Act, Human Rights Act and Freedom of Information Act, and carried out devolution, establishing the Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales, and the Northern Ireland Assembly, fulfilling four of the promises in its 1997 manifesto.

In Northern Ireland Blair was involved in the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. From the start of the War on Terror in 2001, he strongly supported much of the foreign policy of US President George W. Bush, and ensured that British armed forces participated in the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan and, more controversially, the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Blair is the Labour Party’s longest-serving Prime Minister, the only person to have led the Labour Party to more than two consecutive general election victories, and the only Labour Prime Minister to serve consecutive terms more than one of which was at least four years long.

Blair was succeeded as Leader of the Labour Party on 24 June 2007 and as Prime Minister on 27 June 2007 by Gordon Brown.[9]On the day he resigned as Prime Minister, he was appointed the official Envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East. In May 2008, Blair launched his Tony Blair Faith Foundation.[10] This was followed in July 2009 by the launching of the Faith and Globalisation Initiativewith Yale University in the US, Durham University in the UK and the National University of Singapore in Asia to deliver a postgraduate programme in partnership with the Foundation.[11][12] ….

In the Middle East, the theories of Fabian Society intellectual movement of early-20th-century Britain inspired the Ba’athist vision. The Middle East adaptation of Fabian socialism led the state to control big industry, transport, banks, internal and external trade. The state would direct the course of economic development, with the ultimate aim to provide a guaranteed minimum standard of living for all.[25] Michel Aflaq, widely considered as the founder of the Ba’athist movement, was a Fabian socialist. Aflaq’s ideas, with those of Salah al-Din al-Bitar and Zaki al-Arsuzi, came to fruition in the Arab world in the form of dictatorial regimes in Iraq and Syria.[26] Salāmah Mūsā of Egypt, another prominent champion of Arab Socialism, was a keen adherent of Fabian Society, and a member since 1909.[27]”
