British Ministers Call For Mass Government Snooping In Wake Of Woolwich Attack

Following the brutal murder of a young soldier in London, British politicians have called for the resurrection of a bill that was shelved last month that would see the creation of a dragnet surveillance database, allowing police and intelligence agencies to effectively monitor the communications of everyone in the country.
The so-called “snoopers’ charter”, a proposed database of everyone’s internet and phone usage, was blocked last month by The Deputy Prime Minister, and Liberal Democrat leader, Nick Clegg, who cited “significant reduction in personal privacy”.
However, Conservatives in government intentionally left the door open for a revival of the legislation.
Seizing on the horrific Woolwich attack, both Conservative and Labour Party politicians are calling for the plan to be brought back.
Lord West, the former First Sea Lord and security minister, told reporters that shelving the scheme on Clegg’s say so was a “terrible mistake”.
“That information is extremely important for our security services to be able to pin down people, find out who they were linked with, find out who radicalised them,” West told Sky News.
“Was it just themselves or was there someone radicalising more people? We need to know this information and I do think that the Communications Data Bill that was due to come through but has been put on pause by the Deputy Prime Minister, I think that’s a terrible mistake.” he added.
The Conservative minister for faith and communities, Baroness Warsi, also indicated that the big brother legislation should be resurrected.
“Like with any situation I’m sure people will analyse how things could be done better and I’m sure people will have a lessons-learnt exercise,” she said, adding that at some point the Communications data bill would “play into the debate.”
Lord Reid, the former Labour Home Secretary, claimed that enabled mass monitoring of communications is “essential” to combating terrorism. He added that politicians should not wait further for “some huge tragedy” to prove that scrapping the bill was the wrong thing to do.
“Had we not had that method of connecting people through their communications, 2,500 people would probably have been blown out of the sky over the United Kingdom.” he claimed, referring to the (thoroughly absurd) liquid explosives plot of 2006.
“It was a vital component.” Reid claimed. “But now people have moved on from mobile phones to internet, email, text, Skype. We don’t have the means of doing what we did six years ago.” he said, adding that “That is where some of the measures the Government has refused to implement, like data communication, is absolutely essential for effective fighting of terrorism.”
Lord Carlile, a former independent reviewer of terror laws, also said the Woolwich attack should “give the Government pause for thought about their abandonment for example of the Communications Data Bill.”
“We mustn’t rush to judgment. But we must ensure that the police and the security services have for the future the tools they need which will enable them to prevent this kind of attack taking place.” he said on BBC’s Newsnight program.
It emerged today that MI5, which has long lobbied for the legalization of mass communication monitoring, were aware of the suspected attackers. Sources said reports the men had featured in “several investigations” in recent years – but were not deemed to be planning an attack – “were not inaccurate” BBC News reported.
It was also confirmed that one of the suspects was intercepted by police last year while leaving the country.

As Of This Moment Ben Bernanke Own 30.5% Of The US Treasury Market… And Will Own All By 2018

Helicopter ben

As is well-known by everyone, the Fed monetizes the US deficit on a daily basis, thanks to the 45 minutes of POMO love each day when it buys Treasuries from Dealers. Of course, the Fed monetizes bonds from across the entire curve (mostly the longer end), which is why it is somewhat complicated to express the amount of risk transfer the Fed takes on every time the S&P posts an uptick as a result of yet another bond purchase by the hedge fund with the largest fixed income portfolio in the history of the world.

2 FBI Agents Involved in Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Arrest “FALL” Out of Helicopter and Die

Remember that scene in Scarface?
Two members of the FBI’s elite counterterrorism unit died Friday while practicing how to quickly drop from a helicopter to a ship using a rope, the FBI announced Monday in a statement.
The statement gave few details regarding the deaths of Special Agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw, other than to say the helicopter encountered unspecified difficulties and the agents fell a “significant distance.”
Last month, the team was involved in the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. And in February, it rescued a 5-year-old boy held hostage for six days in an underground bunker in Alabama.
“Whenever things go really wrong, the FBI calls in the Hostage Rescue Team. It’s the government’s 911,” Coulson said.
Irvin Wells, a former FBI special agent who retired in 1990 after leading the Norfolk field office for three years, stressed that the Hostage Rescue Team is different from the FBI’s regular SWAT teams. He noted that agents assigned to a field office’s SWAT team also must perform other jobs inside the bureau, while agents assigned to the Hostage Rescue Team have no other duties.

Boy Scouts approve plan to accept openly gay boys

After lengthy and wrenching debate, local leaders of the Boy Scouts of America have voted to open their ranks to openly gay boys for the first time, but heated reactions from the left and right made clear that the BSA‘s controversies are far from over.

The Scouts‘ longstanding ban on gay adults remains in force, and many liberal Scout leaders — as well as gay-rights groups — plan to continue pressing for an end to that exclusion even though the BSA’s top officials aren’t ready for that step.
