The Bush administration, seeking to limit leaks of classified information, has launched initiatives targeting journalists and their possible government sources. The efforts include several FBI probes, a polygraph investigation inside the CIA and a warning from the Justice Department that reporters could be prosecuted under espionage laws.
In recent weeks, dozens of employees at the CIA, the National Security Agency and other intelligence agencies have been interviewed by agents from the FBI's Washington field office, who are investigating possible leaks that led to reports about secret CIA prisons and the NSA's warrantless domestic surveillance program, according to law enforcement and intelligence officials familiar with the two cases.
Numerous employees at the CIA, FBI, Justice Department and other agencies also have received letters from Justice prohibiting them from discussing even unclassified issues related to the NSA program, according to sources familiar with the notices. Some GOP lawmakers are also considering whether to approve tougher penalties for leaking.
In a little-noticed case in California, FBI agents from Los Angeles have already contacted reporters at the Sacramento Bee about stories published in July that were based on sealed court documents related to a terrorism case in Lodi, according to the newspaper.
Some media watchers, lawyers and editors say that, taken together, the incidents represent perhaps the most extensive and overt campaign against leaks in a generation, and that they have worsened the already-tense relationship between mainstream news organizations and the White House.
"There's a tone of gleeful relish in the way they talk about dragging reporters before grand juries, their appetite for withholding information, and the hints that reporters who look too hard into the public's business risk being branded traitors," said New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller, in a statement responding to questions from The Washington Post. "I don't know how far action will follow rhetoric, but some days it sounds like the administration is declaring war at home on the values it professes to be promoting abroad."

just because FOX ignored doesn't mean it didn't happen.
The Obama administration has been ruthless in their pursuit and prosecution of whistle blowers.

“We have tried more leak cases—brought more leak cases during the course of this administration than any other administration,” Holder said before the Senate Judiciary Committee last year.…

Let us look at this major security leak that the DOJ is pursuing relentlessly against a journalist.

"Reporters widely denounce the latest White House leak investigation as "unprecedented"

The Department of Justice went to extreme lengths in 2010 to ferret out who leaked classified information about North Korea to a Fox News reporter, pulling the reporter's emails and phone records, and tracking his movements in and out of the State Department, according to the Washington Post.

The report comes one week after the Associated Press revealed that the Justice Department had secretly obtained its reporters' phone records as part of a separate leak investigation.

But the latest case reportedly went much further than that. While the DOJ only obtained phone numbers for incoming and outgoing calls made by AP reporters, in the North Korea case the department obtained a search warrant to dig through the content of Fox News correspondent James Rosen's emails — and even suggested he may have violated federal law by reporting his findings.

In June 2009, Rosen reported on a U.S. intelligence assessment of North Korea's nuclear program. Outraged at what it felt was a breach of national security — and potentially an act of espionage — the Obama administration went to work to find the source of the leak.

Citing court records that detail the government's investigation, the Post reports that FBI investigators pulled Rosen's phone and email records, and, using his government-issued security badge, pinpointed when he entered and left the State Department. Using that information, they linked him to Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, a State Department security contractor.

Wow, the North Koreans may retaliate by increasing their nuclear program. That was the earth shattering revelation.

It is time to ask your representatives to demand an independent investigation into the DOJs handling of whistle blowers and reporters.

So how is that Obamacare thing going?

" Benefits advisers and insurance brokers—bucking a commonly held expectation that the law would broadly enrich benefits—are pitching these low-benefit plans around the country. They cover minimal requirements such as preventive services, but often little more. Some of the plans wouldn’t cover surgery, X-rays or prenatal care at all. Others will be paired with limited packages to cover additional services, for instance,$100 a day for a hospital visit.

Federal officials say this type of plan, in concept, would appear to qualify as acceptable minimum coverage under the law, and let most employers avoid an across-the-workforce $2,000-per-worker penalty for firms that offer nothing. Employers could still face other penalties they anticipate would be far less costly."

Weather War?

New evidence suggests US & Russia are embroiled in an illegal race to harness the power of hurricanes & earthquakes
British government papers, just released by the National Archives, show that throughout the Seventies there was deep mistrust between the two superpowers over environmental warfare. The documents reveal that both the US, which led the field, and the Soviet Union had secret military programmes with the goal of controlling the world’s climate.“By the year 2025 the United States will own the weather,” one scientist is said to have boasted.

Since then, a United Nations treaty has been signed which bans environmental warfare, such as causing earthquakes, melting the polar ice caps and altering climate. But some experts believe that clandestine work to create the ultimate weapon of mass destruction continues.

These claims are dismissed by sceptics as wild conspiracy theories and the stuff of James Bond movies but there is growing evidence that the boundaries between science fiction and fact are becoming increasingly blurred. The Americans now admit that they invested L12million over five years during the Vietnam war on “cloud seeding”– deliberately creating heavy rainfall to wash away enemy crops and destroy supply routes on the Ho Chi Minh trail, in an operation codenamed Project Popeye.

You might also think twice about getting in that big a$$ truck again to drive to the local store. Because all of us have contributed into making these events turbo charged with global warming. Not once every ten years but now these are annual disasters. No Economy can keep taking those hits but you can sure keep ignoring the obvious.
