Breaking: 3 more suspects taken into custody in Boston bombing case, police say 01 May 2013 Three additional suspects were taken into custody in the Boston Marathon bombing, the Boston Police Department told FoxNews.com. Police would not confirm when the suspects were taken into custody, and referred further questions to the FBI. Charges against the new suspects involve providing some sort of assistance to the two main suspects, sources told Fox News. Police did not confirm the gender of the suspects and did not say when or where they were taken into custody.

Plastic bags, tape, broomsticks fix leak at San Onofre nuclear plant --NRC contemplating restart of nuclear plant 30 Apr 2013 An inside source gave Team 10 a picture snapped inside the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) showing plastic bags, masking tape and broom sticks used to stem a massive leaky pipe. San Onofre owner Southern California Edison (SCE), confirms the picture was taken inside Unit Three, but did not say when. The anonymous source said the picture was taken in December 2012. Unit Three is the same unit that leaked radiation in January 2012. SONGS has been shutdown since then as a precaution. [Team 10 took the picture to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to see what federal regulators had to say about the quick fix.] "If that's nuclear technology at work and that's how we're going to control leaks I think the public should know," the inside source said. [Now, isn't this an act of *corpora-terrorism?* Seems like the FBI and DHS should spend a few dollars investigating the Southern California Edison sociopaths?]

San Onofre insider says NRC should not allow nuclear restart --'There is something grossly wrong' - San Onofre safety engineer 25 Apr 2013 For the first time, a source from inside the San Onofre nuclear power plant has come forward to warn that restarting the power plant is too dangerous. "There is something grossly wrong," said the inside source, a safety engineer who worked at San Onofre and has 25 years in the nuclear field. The source, who requested anonymity, is not alone in concerns over the safety San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS). The concerns stem from inside the concrete containment walls, which house steam generators unique to the plant. [Click here for a timeline of San Onofre incidents.]

U.S. considers sending arms to Syria 'rebels' 30 Apr 2013 The White House is considering providing weapons to the Syrian 'rebels,' officials said Tuesday, but no decision is imminent and President Obama seemed to soften his public threats to the Syrian government over its alleged use of chemical weapons. A decision to supply weapons would mark a reversal for the Obama administration, which has resisted repeated proposals to deepen its involvement in Syria's 2-year-old [CIA-engendered] conflict, which, according to the United Nations, has killed more than 70,000 people, mostly civilians. The administration also is considering supplying nonlethal military equipment such as armor, communications gear, night-vision goggles and vehicles to Syrian insurgent groups, officials said.

Obama's FSA Terrorists Have been using Chemical Weapons in Syria for 4 Months 30 Apr 2013 Terrorists threw "unknown powder" in the face of a number of citizens in Idleb to accuse the army of using chemical weapons against citizens, an official source told SANA reporter. The source explained that the terrorists brought bags containing "unknown powder" and opened them in the face of a number of citizens whom they had gathered in Shabour neighborhood and the southern entrance of Saraqib town in the countryside of Idleb, causing suffocation, shiver and respiratory symptoms among the citizens. The source added that the perpetrators then took the injured citizens to Turkish hospitals to accuse the Syrian armed forces of using chemical weapons.

Obama vows new push to close Guantanamo 30 Apr 2013 President Barack Obama vowed Tuesday to make a renewed attempt to close the US military prison in Guantanamo Bay, amid a hunger strike by suspected terrorist detainees. Obama told a White House news conference he did not want any prisoners to die and called on Congress to help him find a long-term legal solution to the problem of prosecuting terror suspects. "I continue to believe we have to close Guantanamo. I think it is critical for us to understand that Guantanamo is not necessary to keep America safe. It is expensive. It is inefficient. It hurts us in terms of our international standing. It lessens cooperation with our allies on counterterrorism efforts. It is a recruiting tool for extremists. It needs to be closed," he said.

Ricin suspect's dust mask tests positive for toxin 30 Apr 2013 Federal investigators found ricin on a dust mask discarded by the man suspected of sending ricin-laced letters to President Obama and other public officials, according to an FBI affidavit released by a federal court judge on Tuesday. J. Everett Dutschke, 41, of Tupelo, was under FBI surveillance on April 22 when he returned to the taekwondo studio he once ran and removed several items, placed them in his van and then discarded them in a public garbage receptacle about 100 yards away, the eight-page affidavit said. The items included a coffee grinder, a box of latex gloves and a dust mask. The mask later tested positive for ricin, the affidavit said.

Craft International Services hired guns at the Boston Marathon: Why Such Secrecy about Private Military Contractor's Men Working the Event? 25 Apr 2013 And by the way, why aren't the mainstream media asking about this? Are corporate media journalists so intimidated about being labeled "conspiracy nuts" that they can't do their jobs? At a minimum, this goes to the question of accountability. It also goes to the question of inter-agency communication or lack of it. And given what we know about how many times the FBI has been an active encourager and enabler of terror plots which it later thwarts and claims credit for preventing, there's the question, too of potential official culpability. Furthermore, when an horrific incident like this is used to justify such new threats to our Constitutional freedom as an unprecedented martial law-style lockdown of an entire 1-million-person metropolitan area and a precedent-setting deliberately Miranda-free, attorney-free interrogation of a hospitalized, gravely wounded and sedated suspect, it is critical that the whole story be told, not just the official one.

New law will ban protesters from riding mass transit in California 30 Apr 2013 Risking arrest isn't the only obstacle for Northern California protesters -- under a new rule about to go into effect, political demonstrators could lose their right to ride public transportation. Starting next week, law enforcement officers policing the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system in San Francisco, Sacramento, Oakland and other cities can issue bus and subway bans for unruly passengers -- and according to one local news report, that power could be used to prevent political protesters from getting to demonstrations or essentially going anywhere. Under the recently passed State Assembly Bill 716, BART can issue "prohibition" orders to any passenger cited or arrested for certain offenses, essentially blacklisting some people from boarding public transit vehicles if they’ve been charged with certain crimes.

'Lethal' dose in attempted Starbucks poisoning 30 Apr 2013 A woman put a "lethal quantity" of rubbing alcohol in orange juice bottles that she tried to sneak into a display case at a Starbucks coffee shop in San Jose, police said Tuesday. Ramineh Behbehanian was being held without bail at Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder and poisoning. Behbehanian walked into the coffee shop on the 6000 block of Snell Avenue about 3:45 p.m. Monday and was seen by a customer swapping two plastic bottles of Evolution Fresh orange juice from the refrigerated display case with two bottles she was carrying in a Starbucks bag, said police Sgt. Jason Dwyer and a company official.
