US, Massachusetts: TSA Receiving Fingerprint System

© unknown
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration is receiving a fingerprint system from Aware Inc. to supply employee prints to the FBI for background checks.

Aware, a global provider of imaging and biometrics software, said that under the contract it is supplying a commercial off-the-shelf system and associated installation support, training, and maintenance.

The solution will utilize Aware's Biometric Services Platform, a COTS, service-oriented biometric application server, to submit standard-compliant "EFTS" fingerprint records to the FBI for employee background checks and provide a user interface to view results and generate reports.

EFTS stands for FBI's Electronic Fingerprint Transmission Specification.

An Explosive New 9/11 Charge

With the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks only a month away, former CIA Director George Tenet and two former top aides are fighting back hard against allegations that they engaged in a massive cover-up in 2000 and 2001 to hide intelligence from the White House and the FBI that might have prevented the attacks.

The source of the explosive, unproved allegations is a man who once considered Tenet a close friend: former White House counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke, who makes the charges against Tenet and the CIA in an interview for a radio documentary timed to the 10th anniversary next month. Portions of the Clarke interview were made available to The Daily Beast by the producers of the documentary.

US: You Want Proof That Congress Is Owned By Corporations? Check Out What They Did Right Before Going On Break

CBS News Video - June 29, 2011 - Runs 2 minutes

The K-Street lobbying whores are at it again, right on schedule.

CBS Nightly News - Before leaving town for 10 days last week, the House of Representatives found time to pass an amendment designed to help a single drug company. And, as Nancy Cordes reports, this type of special fix is par for the course in Congress.

Growing Israeli Tyranny

For years, America and Israel followed similar paths toward full-blown tyranny, threatening all their citizens. Believing either is democratic and egalitarian is ludicrous and nonsensical, especially now under right-wing neoliberal governments, cracking down hard against challenges to their authority.

In Israel, moreover, Arabs have no rights. In fact, they're treated more like fifth-column threats than citizens with equal rights as Jews. They never had them or do now.

Three articles, among others, discussed Israeli governance under Netanyahu and Israel's most extremist ever Knesset, accessed through the following links: here, here and here.

Superfast Military Aircraft Lost in Test Flight

© Defense Advanced Research Projects AgencyThe Falcon hypersonic HTV-2 is an unmanned, rocket-launched, maneuverable aircraft that glides through the Earth’s atmosphere at incredibly fast speeds.
The U.S. military lost contact with an unmanned hypersonic glider shortly after it launched on a test flight today (Aug. 12) as part of a global strike weapons program to develop vehicles capable of flying at Mach 20 and reach any target in the world in an hour.

The DARPA glider, called the Falcon Hypersonic Test Vehicle 2 (HTV-2), blasted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California atop a Minotaur 4 rocket at 7:45 a.m. PDT.

According to DARPA updates, the test flight appeared to go well until the glide phase, when monitoring stations lost contact with the HTV-2 vehicle.

"Range assets have lost telemetry with HTV2," DARPA officials wrote in a Twitter post about 36 minutes after launch.

Monitoring stations further down range of the vehicle's flight path over the Pacific Ocean also did not find the hypersonic HTV-2 glider. The vehicle is designed to crash itself into the ocean at the end of its mission.

The Pentagon's Fake Jihadists: Could the Pentagon Be Responsible for Your Death?

The Military's Marching Orders to the Jihadist World

Put what follows in the category of paragraphs no one noticed that should have made the nation's hair stand on end. This particular paragraph should also have sent chills through the body politic, launched warning flares, and left the people's representatives in Congress shouting about something other than the debt crisis.

Last weekend, two reliable New York Times reporters, Eric Schmitt and Thom Shanker, had a piece in that paper's Sunday Review entitled "After 9/11, an Era of Tinker, Tailor, Jihadist, Spy." Its focus was the latest counterterrorism thinking at the Pentagon: deterrence theory. (Evidently an amalgam of the old Cold War ideas of "containment" and nuclear deterrence wackily reimagined by the boys in the five-sided building for the age of the jihadi.) Schmitt and Shanker's article was, a note informed the reader, based on research for their forthcoming book, Counterstrike: The Untold Story of America's Secret Campaign Against Al Qaeda.

British PM Suggests Quelling Riots by Disconnecting Social Media

In a move that calls to mind the start of the most serious unrest in nations across the Middle East over the last year, David Cameron, Britain's prime minister, told Parliament Thursday that authorities may shut down social media websites like Facebook and Twitter, in hopes that it would return calm to their streets.

The remarks came one day after British authorities discussed turning off the messaging function on BlackBerry phones, which they suggested may remove a tool protesters and rioters were using.

"Everyone watching these horrific actions will be struck by how they were organized via social media," Cameron told Parliament. "Free flow of information can be used for good. But it can also be used for ill.

"So we are working with the Police, the intelligence services and industry to look at whether it would be right to stop people communicating via these websites and services when we know they are plotting violence, disorder and criminality. I have also asked the police if they need any other new powers."

'We will not allow a culture of fear to exist on our streets,' prime minister says, adding more than 1,200 arrests have been made

Declaring "we will not allow a culture of fear to exist on our streets," Prime Minister David Cameron said Thursday that police across Britain had so far made more than 1,200 arrests over the country's worst civil unrest in memory. Police levels London would remain elevated at 16,000 through the weekend, Cameron told an emergency session of parliament.

He promised tough measures to stop further violence and said "nothing should be off the table," including water cannons and plastic bullets. "The whole country has been shocked (by the riots). ... It is criminality, pure and simple, and there is absolutely no excuse for it," Cameron told lawmakers in the House of Commons.

He said riot-hit businesses would receive help to get back on their feet, and promised to look to the United States for help in fighting the street gangs he blamed for helping spark Britain's riots.
