AP Twitter account hacked

Anyone that follows the Associated Press on Twitter just heard \”news\” of an unprecedented national crisis. \”Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured,\” the AP\’s account tweeted moments ago.

Less than a month after social media received regulators\’ blessing to be a source for market- moving news, the hacking of the Associated Press\’s Twitter Inc. account is raising concerns over the trustworthiness of information spread via the microblogging site.

CISPA is Coming…?

According to data from the Sunlight Foundation, CISPA allies have spent $605 million on lobbying since 2011. The biggest spenders were the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which blew $163 million, and AT&T, which spent $34 million. In all, 52 groups donated at least $100,000 each to members of Congress.

Despite an $84 million lobbying effort, CISPA, the controversial bill aimed at making it easier for corporations to share customers\’ personal information with the government, faces an uncertain future after approval in the US House of Representatives.

Members of Congress who voted for CISPA last week have received threats of violence and had their phone numbers, addresses and other personal details posted online by those who disagree with the legislation.

A Twitter user called \”Grim Reaper\” wrote:

\”For your support of CISPA Rep. Mike Pompeo, the bill to end privacy, here is your dox\”

Then shared a document including the congressman\’s work address and phone number, military service and salary, and even his zodiac sign. The document was posted to Pastebin, a website favored by hackers like Anonymous.

Anonymous has been calling on all websites to blackout their
pages ever since the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act
(CISPA) passed the US House of Representatives on

Boston Bomb Run

While the fast-paced reporting of rumours, hyperbole and innuendo serves very little to the cause of informing and enlightening the millions who rely on cable news for information, it undoubtedly does well at generating widespread fear and hysteria. This is less the result of a grand conspiracy than of simple market economics. Throughout the crisis, ratings at major cable news stations surged – shooting up 194 percent from normal averages at CNN while also posting smaller yet still materially-significant gains at Fox News and MSNBC.

On Thursday night [Friday morning] at 12:45am EST. I was in my living room working on my computer when I heard multiple \”pops\” coming from outside. At that point, I had no idea that I was about to become an eye witness to the biggest news story in the country.

The journalist interviewed in this video describes naked man\’s capture near Nichols and Dexter, literally down the street from the shootout.

Naked man was apparently stripped, questioned, clothed, questioned some more, and reportedly let go. It\’s likely police stripped him because they were under citywide bomb threat and wanted to make sure he didn\’t have a suicide vest, but the police did not comment on that

\”This looks more to me like Columbine than it does al Qaeda,\” the counter terrorism expert observed. \”Two kids who radicalized between themselves in a closed circle go out and commit murder. I would charge these guys as murders, not terrorists.\”

Investigators are trying to determine whether the Boston Marathon bombing suspects used gunpowder from fireworks to create at least some of the bombs they spread across the finish line.

It has often been observed that the war on terror is unwinnable. After all, how could a war on an abstract noun ever have its \”Mission Accomplished\” moment? It is, according to this wisdom, meant to drag on forever.

Just because a war can\’t be won, however, doesn\’t mean it can\’t be lost. The truth is that the war on terror is over. And America has lost.

Poison Letters

No charges have been filed against Dutschke and he hasn\’t been arrested. Both he and Curtis, who had faced charges in the case, say they have no idea how to make the poisonous ricin and had nothing to do with sending the letters to President Barack Obama, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi and a state judge.

Both were signed \”I am KC and I approve this message.\” It is a sign off phrase Curtis used frequently in Internet postings.

The Drone School

A drone school teaches students how to build and fly unmanned vehicles.

GOP Benghazi Report Blasts Hillary

Citing administration emails provided to the House committees, the 46-page report claims that \”to protect the State Department, the Administration deliberately removed references to al-Qaeda-linked groups and previous attacks in Benghazi in the talking points used by Ambassador Rice.\”

This has been a long game for the Republicans. They really want this has leverage over the Obama Administration. Not necessarily a bad play, but it seems like a bit of a weak hand politically. Though the more dirt they dig up, the better their case gets.

Fox News has spent more than half a year blaming the Obama administration for the tragic deaths of U.S. personnel in Benghazi and wielding that attack as a cudgel in an attempt to cause political damage. They have politicized the attack since day 1, claiming that the Obama administration\’s actions are directly responsible for the deaths and pushing conspiracies about administration officials deliberately misleading the public.

After being ordered by a DC circuit court to hold public rulemaking hearings for its Whole Body Imaging scanners more than a year ago, the TSA has finally opened the screening policy for public comment. As of today, the TSA has received more than 600 public comments, and online comments will be accepted through June 24th at 11:59 PM ET — you can file your own comments on the government\’s website.
