Rache für den Tod von Aaron SwartzAnonymous hackt US-Ministerium
Mit dem Hack der Webseite einer mit dem US-Justizministerium verbundenen Behörde reagiert die Hackergruppe Anonymous auf den Tod des Internetaktivisten Aaron Swartz. Zudem droht sie dem Ministerium mit der Veröffentlichung brisanter Dokumente.

Aus Rache für den Tod des 26-jährigen Internetaktivisten Aaron Swartz hat die Hackergruppe Anonymous dem US-Justizministerium mit der Veröffentlichung vertraulicher Dokumente gedroht. Die Gruppe teilte mit, in die Internetseite der zum Ministerium gehörenden Sentencing Commission eingedrungen zu sein. Die Seite der unabhängigen Behörde, die Grundsätze für Strafbemessungen ausarbeitet, war am Samstag offenbar blockiert. Anonymous warf dem Ministerium vor, im Fall des jungen Internetaktivisten übertrieben hart vorgegangen zu sein.

Der als Internet-Genie gefeierte Mitbegründer der Social-News-Webseite Reddit und des Onlinedienstes RSS hatte sich kurz vor dem Beginn eines Strafprozesses wegen Datendiebstahls das Leben genommen. Swartz, der sich für den freien Zugang zu Inhalten im Internet einsetzte, wurde vorgeworfen, Millionen literarischer und wissenschaftlicher Artikel von einer kommerziellen Datenbank gestohlen zu haben. Er hatte die Daten mit Hilfe eines im Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) versteckten Computers heruntergeladen. Ihm drohten bei einer Verurteilung bis zu 35 Jahre Haft sowie eine Geldbuße von 753.000 Euro.

In einem Video auf dem Internetportal YouTube kritisierte Anonymous scharf die „unverhältnismäßige strafrechtliche Verfolgung“ von Hackern. Die Gruppe erklärte, auch in weitere Netze der Regierung eingedrungen zu sein und vertrauliche Dokumente kopiert zu haben. Sie habe zudem „spaltbares Material für mehrere Atomsprengköpfe“ für einen Angriff auf das Justizministerium und andere Regierungsbehörden gesammelt, die in die „Rechte und Freiheiten des Einzelnen“ eingriffen. Das FBI leitete nach eigenen Angaben Ermittlungen ein.

Hey, Hey, Barack! What Do You Say? How Many Kids Have You Killed Today?

Dave Lindorff

27obama-plus-victim.jpg

January 27, 2013

I personally found the president’s inaugural speech not just insipid, but disgusting. It reached its gut-churning nadir near the end where he said:

„We, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war…We will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully – not because we are naïve about the dangers we face, but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear…And we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the victims of prejudice – not out of mere charity, but because peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes:  tolerance and opportunity; human dignity and justice.“
As he spoke these uplifting phrases, US factories were cranking out, under the terms of billion-dollar Pentagon contracts, fleets of drone aircraft that daily are raining explosives down on innocent men, women and children in countries that the US is not even at war with. Most of those drone attacks are personally approved by our Nobel Peace Laureate president, who has claimed the right — unchallenged by either Congress or the Judiciary — to order the liquidation of anyone he deems to be a terrorist (including American citizens), as well as those, even children, who happen to be in the vicinity of such a person. Of the 362 drone strikes in Pakistan to date, 310 were launched during the period Obama has been commander in chief.

The result of this policy of state terrorism has been a wretched, criminal slaughter of children — a slaughter that has been hidden from view, and denied wholesale by the Pentagon and the president. Over 3000 people have been killed, the vast majority of them non-combatant „collateral damage“ deaths. Over 172 of these have reportedly been children.

Noor Syed, 8-year-old girl, one of Obama's first drone victims, killed in Pakistan drone attack on Feb. 14, 2009.Noor Syed, 8-year-old Pakistani girl and one of Obama’s first drone victims, murdered in a US drone attack in South Waziristan, Pakistan on Feb. 14, 2009.

To borrow from the president’s own style-book, „We the People“ have been complicit in ignoring this wretched slaughter. „We the People,“ who cringe in horror at the slaying of 20 innocent first graders in Newtown, Connecticut, don’t spare a thought or a tear for the thousands of innocent children killed in our name by our „heroic“ forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, and elsewhere, by our Presidentially-targeted drone aircraft in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia, and by our weapons in the hands of allies and rebel fighters in places like Syria, Gaza, the West Bank of Palestine, Somalia, and elsewhere.

Just to try and make this monstrous crime by this president clear, here is a partial list, compiled by the organization DronesWatch, of children, some as young as 1 and 2 years old, who have been documented as killed by US drones (they are listed by name, age and sex in that order):

Afghanistan: Prison Probe Should Address Longstanding Abuses
Inquiry Should Focus on Torture, Abuse of Women, Procedural Lapses

Human Rights Watch


September 27, 2013- …Afghan detention centers and prisons are rife with serious abuse, including torture, medically invalid „virginity examinations“ of women, and holding detainees past their release date. The problems are so pervasive that the committee will need to set priorities and focus on the key issues… A United Nations report released in January found that more than half of 635 pretrial detainees and prisoners convicted on national security grounds had been tortured or ill-treated in Afghan government custody. Detainees told the UN investigators that torture was typically used to try to elicit confessions. Fourteen forms of torture were reported, including suspension from ceilings, prolonged and severe beating, including on the soles of the feet, twisting genitals of male detainees, electric shock, prolonged standing or forced exercise, prolonged exposure to cold weather, and threats of execution and rape…

Echelon: CIA’s secret prison: ‘Poland dragging out investigation’

CIA’s secret prison: ‘Poland dragging out investigation’

RussiaToday

January 27, 2013

A Polish investigation into secret CIA jails is being suppressed because it will embarrass the top echelon of the country’s government, lawyers of two men held illegally in one of the CIA’s ‚black sites’ in Poland tell media.

Reportedly, the results of this investigation could link some of Poland’s most senior politicians with illegal detention and torture, as well as impact negatively on the relationship between Poland and its key ally, the US, according to Reuters.

The news agency’s sources, including lawyers and human rights activists, reveal that the investigation was halted after the original investigators were taken off the case early last year.

The probe began in 2008 with prosecutors from the capital Warsaw, but in early 2012 the prosecutor-general transferred the investigation to the southern city of Krakow.

„The image is of a complete lack of action,“ Mikolaj Pietrzak, lawyer for Saudi national Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri who says he was detained in a CIA jail on Polish soil, told Reuters. „The case is obviously, in my opinion, under political control … The most convenient thing politically is for the case to drag on,“ Pietrzak added.

Bartlomiej Jankowski, a lawyer for the second alleged ex-detainee, Abu Zubaydah, has confirmed this.

„I am not receiving any information [from prosecutors] about new documents, nor am I informed about any new hearings. This is something that worries me,“ Jankowski said.

CIA-run prison was discovered in a small remote village Stare Kiejkuty and was operational from December 2002 to the fall of 2003. It was used to transport suspected Al-Qaeda members outside the US territory to interrogate without having to adhere to US law.

Polish officials say the investigators are still in the midst of collecting evidence and the investigation is taking so long because US officials have not been responding to information requests.

In 2006, then-President George W. Bush revealed the US had CIA detention facilities overseas, but no details came out as to their exact locations.However, human rights groups named Afghanistan, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Thailand as the most likely hosts.

The CIA’s black sites in Europe are rumored to have detained and tortured suspected terrorists, and to hold them in custody before being transported to the prison at Guantanamo Bay. The sites and the prisoners existed in legal limbo, with no oversight from citizens of the host countries. The CIA is believed to have operated with the knowledge and cooperation of the governments of those countries.

Poland is the second country to have opened a criminal investigation into the matter, after Lithuania (though that case has been closed).

Polish investigation is entering its fifth year, scheduled to end this month, but there are reports that the prosecutors may apply for an extension.

‚Investigation implicated senior levels of Polish government’

One of the main problems with the investigation is the fact that it affects top levels of Polish government, argues Polish Senator Jozef Pinior, who has pushed for a full investigation.

“ [The government] are in a sandwich between opening this issue up and the pressure from the hard core of the Polish state, the secret service, the prosecutor’s office, who say: ‚Let’s keep this secret‘,“ Pinior told Reuters.

In response, Prime Minister Donald Tusk’s office stated that the investigators are independent from external influence. „No executive body can influence the prosecutor’s actions,“ it said in a statement.

Rumors about Poland hosting a CIA-run prison had circulated for years, though the country’s authorities dismissed them as absurd.However, the UN and the Council of Europe had long claimed they had evidence of the site’s existence.

Also aware of the CIA program was Marek Dukaczewski, who was head of military intelligence when the alleged jail was in operation. He was the only one to acknowledge the CIA prison publicly in 2010.

Two prisoners from Guantanamo Bay, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri and Abu Zubaydah, claimed they were prisoners at this black site. Polish prosecutors have already given the two ‚victim status’.

Among other possible detainees are self-proclaimed 9/11 terrorist mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, perpetrator of the 2000 USS Cole bombing Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, and Palestinian terror suspect Abu Zubaydah.
