State attorney 'outraged' by federal review request in Trayvon Martin case Teen shot dead in Sanford by Neighborhood Watch leader, Apr 02 2012

State Attorney Norm Wolfinger released a statement on Monday saying he is "outraged by the outright lies" contained in a letter written by the attorney of Trayvon Martin's parents, who are seeking a federal review in the case.

Martin family attorney Ben Crump said he is asking the U.S. Justice Department to review the investigation for possible interference by Wolfinger's office on the night Martin was shot to death by Neighborhood Watch leader George Zimmerman.

Crump sent a formal request to the Justice Department on Monday, saying, "within hours of the shooting in which Trayvon Martin was killed, Sanford Chief of Police Bill lee met with State Attorney Norm Wolfinger. We also believe that family members of shooter George Zimmerman were present at the police department. It was further revealed that State Attorney Norm Wolfinger and Chief Bill Lee overruled the recommendation of the lead homicide investigator, Chris Serino, who recommended that George Michale Zimemrman be arrested for manslaughter for killing Trayvon Benjamin Martin."

UPDATE: FORTRESS AMERICA: US extending its sovereignty far beyond its own borders

USA now overtly dictating to other nations about who is allowed to fly from Canada or Britain even to areas outside the USA. These flights do not stop in the USA and go directly to Canada or Cuba,Mexico, the caribean etc. The Americans want toinsist on the use of no fly secret list to apply to foreign flights which do not stop in the USA. Why should Canada or the United Kingdom allow themselves to be dictated to by the USA-so much for the sovereignty of other nations.
So America does not respect the sovereignty of other nations in the West and not just those nations in the Middle East, Africa or Asia.

Planning a trip to Canada or the Caribbean? US Immigration may have other ideas...
New security checks are already in place – even for flights hundreds of miles from American airspace

UPDATE: Occupy Wall St.

As Chis hedges in the article below points out the US government and its massive security apparatus is not just focused on terrorist threats in foreign nations but also inside America but have extended their surveillance-net to include any and all dissidents and outspoken government and business critics including those taking part in or supportive of the #Occupy Movement.

Dissent is no longer to be tolerated in America especially if it criticizes US government policies foreign or domestic or who dare to criticize Wall St. and Corporate America as the US government drifts towards a police state with a fascist style ideology-aka corporatism

"Someone You Love: Coming to a Gulag Near You" By Chris Hedges April 02, 2012 "Truthdig" via Information Clearing House

-- The security and surveillance state does not deal in nuance or ambiguity. Its millions of agents, intelligence gatherers, spies, clandestine operatives, analysts and armed paramilitary units live in a binary world of opposites, of good and evil, black and white, opponent and ally. There is nothing between. You are for us or against us. You are a patriot or an enemy of freedom. You either embrace the crusade to physically eradicate evildoers from the face of the Earth or you are an Islamic terrorist, a collaborator or an unwitting tool of terrorists. And now that we have created this monster it will be difficult, perhaps impossible, to free ourselves from it. Our 16 national intelligence agencies and army of private contractors feed on paranoia, rumor, rampant careerism, demonization of critical free speech and often invented narratives. They justify their existence, and their consuming of vast governmental resources, by turning even the banal and the mundane into a potential threat. And by the time they finish, the nation will be a gulag.

This is why the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which was contested by me and three other plaintiffs before Judge Katherine B. Forrest in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on Thursday, is so dangerous. This act, signed into law by President Barack Obama last Dec. 31, puts into the hands of people with no discernible understanding of legitimate dissent the power to use the military to deny due process to all deemed to be terrorists, or terrorist sympathizers, and hold them indefinitely in military detention. The deliberate obtuseness of the NDAA’s language, which defines “covered persons” as those who “substantially supported” al-Qaida, the Taliban or “associated forces,” makes all Americans, in the eyes of our expanding homeland security apparatus, potential terrorists. It does not differentiate. And the testimony of my fellow plaintiffs, who understand that the NDAA is not about them but about us, repeatedly illustrated this.

Alexa O’Brien, a content strategist and information architect who co-founded the U.S. Day of Rage, an organization created to reform the election process and wrest it back from corporate hands, was the first plaintiff to address the court. She testified that when WikiLeaks released 5 million emails from Stratfor, a private security firm that does work for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Marine Corps and the Defense Intelligence Agency, she discovered that the company was attempting to link her and her organization to Islamic radicals and websites as well as jihadist ideology.

Last August there was an email exchange between Fred Burton, Stratfor’s vice president for counterterrorism and corporate security and a former deputy director of the counterterrorism division of the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service, and Thomas Kopecky, director of operations at Investigative Research Consultants Inc. and Fortis Protective Services LLC. In that exchange, leaked Feb. 27 by WikiLeaks, Kopecky wrote: “I was looking into that U.S. Day of Rage movement and specifically asked to connect it to any Saudi or other fundamentalist Islamic movements. Thus far, I have only hear[d] rumors but not gotten any substantial connection. Do you guys know much about this other than its US Domestic fiscal ideals?”?

But that changed quickly. Stratfor, through others working in conjunction with the FBI, soon linked U.S. Day of Rage to al-Qaida and other terrorist groups.

In early September, U.S. Day of Rage, which supported the Sept. 17 call to occupy Wall Street, received Twitter messages that falsely accused it of being affiliated with terrorist groups. The messages came from a privately owned security and intelligence contractor, Provide Security, managed by Thomas Ryan, who works for U.S. military and government agencies, and Dr. Kevin Schatzle, a former FBI, Secret Service and New York City Police Department counterterrorism agent who is on the advisory board of a private intelligence firm that sells technology to profile and interrogate terrorism suspects. On Sept. 1 U.S. Day of Rage received three private, direct Twitter messages that read:

“Now you are really in over your head with this. Muslims from an Afghanistan Jihad site have jumped in. ...”

“You seem peaceful, but #Anonymous will tarnish that reputation and FAST! They plan to hack NYPD and Banks for #OccupyWallStreet with #RefRef.”

“Just a heads up. I watched your training videos, but do you realize the #Anonymous relationship/infiltration will cause you MANY problems.”

On Oct. 14, 2011, Provide Security’s Ryan published an article—“The Email Archive of #OccupyWallStreet Movement,” on the Andrew Breitbart Presents Big Government website page—that tied U.S. Day of Rage to al-Qaida and other terrorist groups. Ryan said in the article that he had “recruited other people to help U.S. begin the collection of data” from social media sites that included U.S. Day of Rage. The article goes on:

On August 10, 2011, the hacker group, “Anonymous” announced that it would join the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. That’s what sparked my interest in monitoring #OccupyWallStreet.

I reached out to a colleague and asked if he would be interested in studying the protest with me. At first, it seemed disorganized, and we believed it would only be a few hundred protestors.

As we engaged in monitoring its growth, we recruited other people to help us begin the collection of data available via social media. We began mapping out key players, and monitored Anonymous’s efforts to organize protests in the San Francisco Bay area public transportation system (#opBART) in order to detect patterns of key influences.

Then, at the end of August, we were alerted by a fellow researcher that information about USDoR (U.S. Day of Rage, to which Occupy Wall Street is connected) had been posted on Shamuk and Al-Jihad, two Al-Qaeda recruitment sites. We began to take the “Occupy” protest more seriously, and dedicated more time to researching and monitoring.

Days later, Anonymous announced that it would be releasing its new DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) tool. Because of the Al-Qaeda posting, we contacted the New York Field Office of the FBI so they could investigate the potential threat. From that point on, we decided we needed to include the Human Element of Intelligence (HUMINT), and to infiltrate the protestors to map their ties to Anonymous, and to the postings on Shamuk and Al-Jahad.

UPDATE: Bahraini Protests and the Saudi Royal Family and its theocratic oppressive Regime.
Saudi oppression we are told by US government and its feeble minded Mainstream Media is okay because the Saudis are allies and are the source of much of the West' oil and of course the Saudis hate Iran and the Iranian people as much as the Americans do.
So the USA ignores when peaceful protesters in Saudi Arabia or Bahrain are beaten, gassed,incarcerated and tortured that's fine the officials in Washington claim.
The Saudi Regime has also allowed US military bases to operate out of Saudi Arabia.
While in Bahrain the peaceful protesters there are sacrificed on the altar of America's geopolitical strategic interests in the region and thereby be permitted by the Saudis and Bahrain regime to maintain the fifth fleet in Bahrain for staging its next war and invasion of Syria or Iran.

Our strong bilateral relationships are a rock of stability in the region," Clinton said in prepared remarks delivered in the inaugural meeting of a new U.S.-Gulf security forum. (AFP/Getty Images)

Meanwhile Hilary Clinton says little about human rights violations while visiting Saudi Arabia. The oppressed peoples of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain get no sympathy from The Secretary of State or from President Obama.
Saudi Arabia,s monarchy and its theocracy is just as bad as it were as Iran when it comes to human Rights and civil rights and the rights of women.
Obama regime is more concerned with encircling Iran than in the welfare of citizens in the region.
After all it is Saudi Arabia backed by the USA which has sent in troops to crush the pro-democray pro-reform movement in Bahrain.
And yet many so called liberals in the USA refuse to condemn Obama's policies in the Middle East and Africa.
So all their blather about human rights, civil rights or the rights of women in these nations has just been atalking Point to convince Americans that the USA in this region to support reform.
The Saudis and Israelis and the USA and its allies are beating the war drums against Iran even though Iran is not an imminent threat to the USA or the West or to the Saudis or israelis.
The Israelis have a nuclear weapons stockpile of at least 200 to 300 nuclear weapons plus one of the best trained and armed militaries in the region.
If Iran fired upon Israel or Saudi Arabia the retaliation by these two nations would be devastating for Iran.
No matter what Americans might have been told Iran had nothing to do with 9/11 terrorist attacks and it did not support Saddam or The Taliban.
It is the Saudis who are the ones who have bank roled various terrorist organizations including the 9/11 attackers.
It is the Israelis who have shown no respect for the sovereignty of its neighbors and has no respectfor the human rights or civil rights of the Palestinians or Arabs or Persians (Iranians)within or outside the Israeli's illegal borders.

Bahrain the forgotten protesters

The Obama White House supports brutal anti-Democratic regime of Bahrain . Meanwhile the Obama administration erroneously claims to be on the side of pro-democracy pro-reform movements in the Middle East.
But we have seen how President Obama has allowed local police forces in the USA brutally crackdown on the Occupy protesters from NewYork to Chicago to Oakland.
The president of the united States and the members of the Congress and Senate and the US military supposedly swore an oath to defend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and yet the Bill of Rights and the Constitution have been stomped upon by the Riot Police across the USA.

So if peaceful protesters in the USA can be beaten, pepper-sprayed why should we expect the US government and president Obama show any concern for the pro-reform movements in Bahrain or Egypt or elsewhere except when it suits America's long term agenda.
The USA and other Western nations are against oppressive regimes only if they are not cooperating and doing the West' bidding.

The USA and Western Nations in reality have little interest or motive to support pro-reform movements in the Middle East or Africa. They took out and murdered Qaddafi in large part because he was in favor of policies which would be beneficial to his people and not necessarily favor Western interests .

But Qaddafi was also guilty of trying to unite more African nations to stand up for their people and demand they be treated in a just manner by Western Nations and by nations in the region allied to the USA and the West.

Protesters attacked in Bahrain, rights group says By Mohammed Jamjoom, CNN
April 1, 2012

(CNN) -- Government forces attacked protesters in Bahrain Saturday, according to a human rights group.
"Security forces have spent the day attacking protests in different parts of the country," the Bahrain Center for Human Rights said in a statement. "Many serious injuries were reported, including a 15-year-old boy who was hit directly in the arm with a teargas canister."

The group also said its president, Nabeel Rajab, was arrested before a planned march in Manama that was to be a show of solidarity with Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, one of Bahrain's most prominent human rights activists.

Al-Khawaja was sentenced to life in prison in June for his role in the anti-government demonstrations that swept through Bahrain a year ago. He has been on hunger strike for more than 50 days in protest of his sentence.

On Friday, Amnesty International issued a statement calling on Bahraini authorities to release al-Khawaja amid fears that he is at risk of death.

A member of al-Khawaja's family told CNN they were informed that al-Khawaja had been taken to a hospital due to his deteriorating condition but were not allowed to visit with him.

CNN could not independently confirm the claims of attacks on protesters, but the Bahrain Interior Ministry confirmed the arrest of Rajab. The ministry said in a tweet that Rajab was arrested for "calling (for) participation in unauthorized rally & illegal gathering."

Meanwhile, a 22-year-old protester died early Saturday after a shooting that the main Shiite opposition party Al-Wefaq blamed on neighborhood militias loyal to the Bahraini regime.

The victim, identified by police as Ahmed Ismael Abdulsamad, died of a gunshot wound to the thigh, the country's chief of public security, Major-General Tariq Al Hassan, said in a statement released by the Interior Ministry.
