Hillary Clinton hospitalized after doctors discover blood clot 30 Dec 2012 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was hospitalized Sunday after doctors discovered a blood clot during a follow-up exam related to a concussion she suffered this month, her spokesman said. She is expected to remain at New York Presbyterian Hospital for the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor her condition and treat her with anti-coagulants, said Philippe Reines, deputy assistant secretary of state. "Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion," Reines said. "They will determine if any further action is required." Reines did not specify where the clot was discovered.

Obama signs five-year extension of warrantless surveillance law 30 Dec 2012 President Barack Obama has signed into law a five-year extension of the U.S. government's authority to monitor the overseas activity of suspected foreign spies and terrorists. The warrantless intercept program would have expired at the end of 2012 without the president's approval. The renewal bill won final passage in the Senate on Friday. Known as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the law allows the government to monitor overseas phone calls and emails without obtaining a court order for each intercept.

US-New Zealand attempt to create doomsday 'tsunami bomb' - documents 30 Dec 2012 A new book has revealed rare historical gems buried in New Zealand's national archives, including a bizarre WWII [ongoing] plan to create a "tsunami bomb" and military files detailing supposed UFO sightings. Author Ray Waru said he wrote "Secrets and Treasures" to highlight the material publicly available at Archives New Zealand in Wellington -- where almost 100 kilometres (62 miles) of shelf space is crammed with historical artefacts. Alongside notable historical documents are curiosities like "Project Seal", a top-secret US-New Zealand attempt to create a doomsday device to rival the nuclear bomb. The project was launched in June 1944 after a US naval officer noticed that blasting operations to clear coral reefs around Pacific islands sometimes produced a large wave, raising the possibility of creating a "tsunami bomb". Explosive tests carried out in waters north of Auckland led scientists to conclude that the weapon was feasible and a series of 10 massive blasts offshore could create a 10-metre (33-foot) tsunami capable of inundating a small coastal city. [Right after the announcement that Fukushima was offered to process Iran's nuclear fuel, guess what happened in March 2011?]

US troops assisting in evacuation of US citizens, diplomats from Central African Republic 29 Dec 2012 President Barack Obama says 50 U.S. troops have deployed to the African country of Chad to help evacuate U.S. citizens and embassy personnel from the neighbouring Central African Republic's capital of Bangui in the face of rebel advances toward the city. Obama informed congressional leaders of Thursday's deployment in a letter Saturday citing a "deteriorating security situation" in the Central African Republic. In the Central African Republic, rebels have seized at least 10 northern towns. On Saturday they continued their advance, seizing the city of Sibut, 114 miles from Bangui.

US drone strike kills al-Qaeda suspects in Yemen --Attack would be the fourth suspected strike in Yemen in a week 30 Dec 2012 At least three suspected al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] militants have been killed by a US drone strike in Yemen's south-western al-Bayda province, say local officials. The men were reportedly hit as they travelled in a car in el-Manaseh village on the outskirts of Radda. On Friday, two 'suspected militants' were killed in eastern Hadramout province, while at least five were killed by two strikes on 24 December.
