US not tracking spending on Afghan projects, audit says

The US government has spent about $55bn on rebuilding in Afghanistan since 2001 but cannot easily show how the money was spent, a government watchdog says.

The special inspector general's office for Afghanistan reconstruction talked of a "confusing labyrinth" of spending.

It said some 7,000 contractors received $17.7bn from 2007-09 but data prior to 2007 was too poor to be analysed.

"The Fraud Perpetrated Upon Investors and Insurers Due to Multiple Pledges of Collateral Could Be Massive"

Christopher Whalen previously explained how the banks got away with pledging mortgages to multiple buyers.

Today, Whalen provides further details:

The short answer is "innovation." In her column, "One Mess That Can't Be Papered Over," Gretchen Morgenson of the New York Times reveals the practice in FL and other jurisdictions of destroying the physical note. We really like the 4th from last paragraph, the one about the standard practice of Florida bankers to destroy the original note when an electronic form was created, to "avoid confusion." If you know anything about the checkered history of FL real estate over the past century, this one bites you in the leg.

BP dispersants 'causing sickness'

Two-year-old Gavin Tillman of Pass Christian, Mississippi, has been diagnosed with severe upper respiratory, sinus, and viral infections. His temperature has reached more than 39 degrees since September 15, yet his sicknesses continue to worsen.

His parents, some doctors, and environmental consultants believe the child's ailments are linked to exposure to chemicals spilt by BP during its Gulf of Mexico oil disaster.

Gavin's father, mother, and cousin, Shayleigh, are also facing serious health problems. Their symptoms are being experienced by many others living along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico.

Placebo fraud rocks the very foundation of modern medical science; thousands of clinical trials invalidated

You know all those thousands of clinical trials conducted over the last few decades comparing pharmaceuticals to placebo pills? Well, it turns out all those studies must now be completely thrown out as utterly non-scientific. And why? Because the placebos used in the studies weren't really placebos at all, rendering the studies scientifically invalid.

This is the conclusion from researchers at the University of California who published their findings in the October issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine. They reviewed 167 placebo-controlled trials published in peer-reviewed medical journals in 2008 and 2009 and found that 92 percent of those trials never even described the ingredients of their placebo pills.

Military wants to scan communications to find internal threats

As the U.S Army considers whether Col. Nidal Hasan, the suspect in last year's Fort Hood massacre, should face a court-martial, it also is looking at whether the military missed signals that might have indicated what was about to happen.

Now a Pentagon research arm is asking scientists to create a way to scan billions of e-mails to identify suspects in advance so that crimes can be stopped before they are committed.

That's the goal of the latest $35 million project announced by DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which is credited with breakthroughs like the internet, GPS and stealth technology.

When The Big Banks Come Crawling Back, Screw 'Em! Taxpayer Talking Points for the NEXT Round of Bailouts

I admit it: I want to see the banks feel some pain. Most people do, I think. Banks did terrible things during the subprime bubble, and they still haven’t paid any real price. I find myself rooting for judges to rule against banks in foreclosure cases. I would love to see these big investors put the serious hurt on Bank of America, which will encourage other investors to pile on. I know this colors my thinking. I can’t help it.

A list of Taxpayer Talking Points to make sure things are different this time around.

The early warning system installed after the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia failed to alert islanders to the latest deadly wave because it had fallen into disrepair, officials revealed.

The death toll from the double natural disaster has risen to more than 340 and hundreds more are still missing in the wake of a 10ft tsunami and volcano eruption.

More than 100,000 people were stopped and searched by police under counter-terrorism powers last year but none of them were arrested for terrorism-related offences, according to Home Office figures published today.

The statistics show that 504 people out of the 101,248 searches were arrested for any offence – an arrest rate of 0.5%, compared with an average 10% arrest rate for street searches under normal police powers.

Any President that Would Dare Oppose The Federal Reserve Gets Assassinated:
History Lesson & JP Morgan Buyout of Bear Stearns
by Sygnus Centauri

It was 248 years ago, in 1760 that Mayer Amschel Rothschild created the House of Rothschild that was to pave the way for international banking and control of the world’s resources on a scale unparalleled and somewhat mysterious to this date. He disbursed his five sons to set up banking operations throughout Europe and the various European empires.

7/7: Practice Makes Perfect

Most of us who have been paying attention have known for some time that there were two ‘drill’- type events associated with the 7/7 London bombings.

The first was the Panorama programme of May 2004 during which one overground and 3 underground explosions take place over a short space of time during the morning rush hour.

The second was the famous ‘drill’ revealed by Peter Power on the day of 7/7 itself when he said that drills were taking place in the same 3 stations and at the same time as the bombs actually went off.

For many, including this author, these were coincidences beyond all reason.

AMERICAN DEMOCRACY: PRO-ISRAEL TWEEDLEDUM AND TWEEDLEDEE

And what choice does that leave American voters? As one frustrated commentator put it, there’s “not a dime’s worth of difference between the two parties.” Nowhere is that more true than when it comes to their corrupt bipartisan support for Israel.

“Every Jewish community needs its nigger”

David Rotem of Yisrael Beitenu, can say just about anything. And his party is a senior coalition partner.

During the Knesset committee session yesterday, Rotem said:

“Every Jewish community needs at least one Arab. Otherwise, who will repair my fridge when it breaks down on Shabbat?”

Max Gardner's Boot Camp - The Lawyer Behind The Foreclosure Resistance Movement

* "He charges $7,775 for the 4-day program, which covers 3,000 pages of materials, lodging, food and unlimited wine, beer and single-malt Scotch."

This paragraph was of interest:

"...the mortgage firms simply don’t have the documents. Gardner advocates using mortgage firms’ faulty evidence as leverage to secure affordable loan modifications for clients and have creditors cover all attorney fees."

Towards Martial Law in America: Authority to Deploy Troops Domestically during ‘National Emergencies’

Earlier this month, the United States Coast Guard upheld its self-declared status as a ‘special’ branch of the military with the ability to prosecute civilians in military tribunals. This startling declaration, unreported in the media, came in a Decision on Appeal related to the case of Lieutenant Eric Shine, a commissioned Naval officer in the Merchant Marines and a graduate of Kings Point Military Service Academy, and was penned by the Vice Commandant of the Coast Guard. The decision can be downloaded and read here.

Israel is Relieved Not to be The Only War Criminal

According to the logic of Israeli propagandists, some of whom are disguised as journalists, Israel should now proudly look at the rest of the world: They killed more people there. Yes, war is cruel, the world is full of crimes and injustice, but not one of them exonerates Israel, even if Israel's sins seem pure as snow compared to those of the great United States. Now is the time to sharply censure America, not to forgive Israel.

A Worse Record Than Saddam's

The war killed, maimed and destroyed more civilians than Saddam did, even during the most diabolical periods of his rule. Revealed are countless atrocities and the deaths of 66,000 Iraqi civilians at the hands of US and British soldiers and Iraqi personnel who had joined the allies. Men were burnt, some had parts removed, others were killed slowly; women were shot, children too, killed before they grew. Anything goes, it seems, during a military conflict and no questions are asked. As an Israeli army trainer said, when asked about the death of Rachel Corrie, the young, pro-Palestinian activist mown down by an Israeli tank: "During war there are no civilians".

Mahmoud Abbas Caves In: Recognizes the US as a Jewish State [Satire]

Peace is just busting out all over. In a major breakthrough engineered by the great man of change and hope and who has blocked access to all documents that tell us anything about him, Israeli Vice President for American Affairs (IVPAA), Barrack Hussein Obama, the Israeli Vice President for Palestinian Affairs (IVPPA), Mahmoud Abbas, has made a major compromise. In a press conference in Herzeliyya, Abbas has offered Netanyahu a huge concession. Both the House and Senate in the US are ready to vote on it as soon as Netanyahu gives the go ahead, the bill having been drafted by AIPAC, as usual.

WORLD TRADE CENTER BOMBING
The heroism that was displayed by both the police officers of the NYPD and the firefighters of the FDNY during the rescue of thousands of trapped employees in the World Trade Center has been documented by journalists and the media. This cowardly attack on the innocent people of the City of New York will be written about for many years. There were thousands of individual acts of bravery that went unrecognized in the confusion and terror of that day. What follows is a bird's-eye view of some of the events of that day in the eyes of the Commanding Officer of the NYPD Aviation Unit, Captain William Wilkens, NYPD (retired):

Could Helicopters Have Saved People From the Top of the Trade Center?

Could Helicopters Have Saved People From the Top of the Trade Center?
By Scot J. Paltrow and Queena Sook Kim
Staff Reporters of The Wall Street Journal October 23, 2001
New York City's fire code requires roof doors to be unlocked or to have devices that allow someone to open a locked door from the inside. Officials at several companies that manage large numbers of tall buildings in Manhattan say their buildings provide roof access in an emergency.
But the Port Authority's Twin Towers had the status of state government property and therefore were legally exempt from the fire code, according to both the Port Authority and the city's building department, which oversees enforcement of the fire code.
