MARINE CORPS SGT. ANDREW TAHMOORESSI HELD IN MEXICO JAIL NOW FOR 55 DAYS : COWARD KERRY FAILS TO SECURE HIS RELEASE

Physical, moral COWARD, TRAITOR John Kerry fails to secure Marine's release; kisses ass on filthy, Barney Fife Mexican cops and walks away empty-handed even as U.S. TAXPAYERS FORK OVER MILLIONS EACH YEAR TO THESE CORRUPT SCUMBAGS:  This PROVES that no American is safe visiting this 5th rate, drug infested murder ghetto and that the U.S. State Department will simply abandon U.S. citizens illegally imprisoned there to ROT; The 5th Estate recommends a TOTAL BOYCOTT OF MEXICO by civilians and Marines from Camp Pendleton and San Diego military bases until such time as Sgt. Tahmooressi is released

Whether U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi spends the next two decades in a Mexican prison or is freed tomorrow for mistakenly crossing the border with loaded guns all rests with an unpredictable legal process that bears little resemblance to the American court system.


Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi USMC
Tahmooressi, 25, of Weston, Fla., has been held in two Mexican prisons since being arrested while accidentally crossing into Mexico on March 31 with three weapons in his truck. 

According to Tahmooressi’s defense attorney Alejandro Osuna, of Tijuana, Mexico, his client is facing federal charges for carrying a weapon intended for exclusive use by the military, carrying a weapon not registered in Mexico and possession of ammunition. “These are very serious charges in Mexico,” Osuna said.



Tahmooressi alleges that he made a wrong turn while leaving a San Ysidro, Calif., parking lot late on March 31 and was unable to avoid entering Mexico. Once across the border, he tried to turn around immediately. Osuna said his client fully disclosed to the customs agents he had weapons in his truck and that he did not intend to enter Mexico.

“The judge who is hearing the case in Tijuana is oblivious to the American media.”

“Andrew said that one of the customs officials offered to escort him back across the border,” Osuna said. “We need to find out what happened at that point."


Inveterate pussy Kerry sucks-off Mexican thugs
Osuna said there are few similarities between the Mexican and U.S. legal systems which adds to misperceptions and glacial speed in getting evidence entered and argued. 

The most glaring difference is that there's no jury — a judge will decide Tahmoressi's fate alone, unless a top government official intervenes.

“Unlike the U.S. system, where you will have a two or three day trial, in Mexico evidence and hearings are presented piecemeal,” Osuna said.


Tahmooressi’s first court session is slated for May 28, where he will face the two customs agents and two soldiers involved in his arrest and be able to make a statement.

“We want him to explain everything that happened the night of his arrest,” Osuna said.

In Tahmooressi’s favor is a 911 call he made explaining his plight and failed attempt to get back into the U.S. Osuna said he will also subpoena the video of the customs station when his client was arrested.

But those pieces of evidence, as Osuna predicted, won’t be disclosed until later dates. A subsequent hearing to listen to the 911 tape is scheduled for June 4. On June 5, a court officer will accompany the lawyers to the actual border crossing.


Nutless, gutless COWARD Obama could care less about Marine
David Shirk, a political science professor at the University of San Diego, where he heads the Justice in Mexico Project, said the border ports of entry are complicated but that he understands Mexico’s response.

“There are giant signs saying you are about to enter Mexico and there is a U-turn option about 300 yards before the entrance to Mexico,” Shirk said. 


“I do believe that this was a mistake, but it is understandable that Mexico would believe that adequate warning was given.”

Shirk said the case touches on not only differing legal systems, but issues of sovereignty between the U.S. and Mexico.

“You might think about this case in the following way: what if a US citizen in possession of legally purchased medical marijuana were to accidentally enter Mexico? That person would be in violation of Mexico's prohibition on marijuana, and would be expected to face justice,” he said. “Or what if a Mexican citizen in possession of a small quantity of heroin, which would be a acceptable under Mexico's minor possession laws, enter the United States port of entry accidentally? Would we not expect that person to be held to account? Or would we say, 'Whoops, they made a mistake, let's send them back to Mexico?'”


This U-Turn sign was the only indication Sgt. Tahmooressi had that he was crossing mistakenly into Mexico

Both Osuna and Shirk agree that Tahmooressi faces an arduous legal ordeal. The judge can dismiss the case at any point, but the decision is his to make.

“The judge won’t dismiss the case at this time,” Osuna said.

Osuna added that the mounting political and diplomatic pressure the U.S. is generating for the release of Tahmooressi, it is unlikely a release will be imminent.

“The judge who is hearing the case in Tijuana is oblivious to the American media,” Osuna said.


Hunter has failed to secure release of fellow Marine
Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., requested a pardon from the governor of Baja State where Tijuana is located, but because Tahmooressi is facing federal charges, there is little a state official could do. Not even Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has the option to pardon prisoners, according to Shirk, who added that he's not certain if the new federal rules for criminal procedure are yet in effect to allow the attorney general to opt out of prosecuting a case.


“The only way he would get out at this point if from an order from Mexico’s attorney general,” Osuna said.

Even that is a long shot, although the U.S. State Department is said to be pressing behind the scenes.

“It is not clear to me that there is some kind of get out of jail free card,” Shirk said. “Assuming that this does go to trial, it could be months or years before all of the evidence is brought to bear that is needed for the case. In the meantime, he would likely need to remain in pretrial detention. “

In December 2012, a Mexican federal judge ordered the immediate release of marine Jon Hammar, 27, who had crossed into Mexico the previous August with an antique rifle in his vehicle en route to a surfing trip. Like Tahmooressi, Hammar also suffered from severe combat-related PTSD.


Mexican authorities will be held personally accountable and responsible for the safety and immediate release of  Sgt. Tahmooressi; every day that passes compounds this egregious insult to all Marines and if the Mexican judge overseeing this case does not care about media pressure, he sure as hell will care if and when Sgt. Tahmooressi's Brothers are forced to secure his release and will pay with his life and the lives of his corrupt, scumbag, coward cops should this be required


The Mexican court ruled that Hammar had no criminal intent to bring the antique 60-year-old rifle across the border and had his constitutional rights violated.

Hammar's relatives were subjected to extortion calls from jailed cartel members and the pain of seeing their son chained to a bed in the administrative offices of the Matamoros State prison.

Tahmooressi will remain behind bars in a state penitentiary in Tecate, Mexico, some 40 miles east of Tijuana.

WAYNE MADSEN : Obama Decides To Take On China And Russia

White House madman seeks to start WWIII in order to divert from yet more scandals engulfing his administration; willing to destroy America to save own skin, avoid impeachment

WAYNE MADSEN REPORT
By Wayne Madsen
05/24/2014

Pentagon sources have told WMR that they are alarmed at the rapid pace at which the Obama White House has moved to increase tensions with China so quickly on the heels of a breakdown in U.S. relations with Russia.


Just a few weeks after the Treasury Department announced directed sanctions against senior officials of the Russian government, as well as Russian corporations and banks, the Justice Department criminally indicted five military officers of the cyber-war division of the Third Department of the People’s Liberation of Army of China, Unit 61398, for hacking into the computer systems of Alcoa, Westinghouse, U.S. Steel, the United Steel Workers’ Union, Solar World AG, and Allegheny Technologies and stealing trade secrets. 


The indictments are the first ever brought by the U.S. government for criminal hacking by officials of a foreign government. The action not only places U.S. citizens, including U.S. military and intelligence personnel, in jeopardy for possible retaliatory indictments and possible arrest by China but also may result in Russia-like sanctions being placed on Chinese government officials and businesses if the five Chinese officials on the FBI’s “Wanted List” are not handed over by Chinese authorities to the U.S. The five Chinese military officers are Wang Dong, Sun Kailiang, Wen Xinyu, Huang Zhenyu, and Gu Chunhui.

Obama, according to Pentagon sources, has brought U.S. relations with Russia and China to their lowest level since early on in the administration of Lyndon B. Johnson in the mid-1960s. The Pentagon appears to have been largely bypassed in recent White House decisions that would increase military tensions between Washington and both Moscow and Beijing. The decision to impose tough economic sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine crisis and the indictment of the five PLA officers came just hours prior to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s heralded trip to Beijing, where he inked a major pipeline deal with China and other agreements bringing the two Eurasian economic and political giants closer together. The move by Obama against China also comes after Obama’s saber-rattling tour of Asia designed to put China on notice that it is the target of Obama’s military “pivot to Asia.”


Obama has moved U.S. forces into confrontational positions with Russia’s military in Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, and Bulgaria. In addition, mercenary forces with the firm Academi, formerly Blackwater and Xe Services, have been reported fighting alongside Ukrainian military and neo-Nazi militia forces in eastern Ukraine. The CIA, using proxies within the non-governmental organization community, has began agitating against the Putin government from within the ranks of feminist, LGBT, and anti-conscription pressure groups.


But first and foremost, Obama has decided to replace governments friendly to China in Southeast Asia with ones more hostile to China and friendlier to the United States. No sooner had the CIA and its Thai allies used judicial contrivances close to the Thai royal family to oust the democratically-elected prime minister of Thailand, Yingluck Shinawatra, from power but the CIA’s historical dirty fingerprints were found in a catastrophic plane crash in Laos. Top Lao government officials, including Defense Minister and deputy premier Defense Minister Douangchay Phichit, were killed when their Ukrainian-made AN-74TK-300 aircraft crashed while en route from Vientiane, the Lao capital to Xiangkhoung near the Plain of Jars, an area not heard of by most Americans since the days of the John Kennedy administration. Also killed was Public Security Minister Thongbane Sengaphone, Vientiane Governor Sukhan Mahalad, and Lao Communist Party Central Committee Secretary and head of the Committee’s Commission for Propaganda and Training Cheuang Sombounkhanh.


Almost immediately, CIA media outlets, some connected to Radio Free Asia, began reporting on an inevitable power struggle among the secretive Lao Politburo. The Voice of America began interviewing “experts” who maintained that the Thai military was merely fulfilling its traditional role of government busting based on the arcane Martial Law Act. 


President Obama, who has used the 1917 Espionage Act, more than any previous president combined, to stifle critics with jail terms has obviously discovered a country with a draconian act that rivals that of the 1917 American law.

The crash was fortuitous for the Obama administration. Naval and coast guard vessels of China and Vietnam had clashed over disputed waters in the South China Sea. Laos has maintained a steady neutrality between Vietnam and China, the two Communist allies of Laos.

The death of Douangchay, a powerful member of the Politburo of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party, the Communist party that has ruled Laos since 1975, was expected to set off a power struggle between pro-China and pro-Vietnamese factions within the party. Apparently, the Obama administration decided to go for broke after successfully deposing Yingluck, who is of Thai-Chinese heritage and maintained friendly relations with China. Somewhere deep within the bowels of the Obama national security apparatus is a Presidential Finding authorizing an operation against the Lao government aircraft.


"Mainstream media" continues to aid and abet Obama's wars
Douangchay was due to attend the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Defense Ministers meeting in Myanmar to discuss regional security issues with his Vietnamese, Thai, and other ASEAN counterparts. The “constitutional coup” in Thailand coupled with the wiping out of the senior security ranks of the Lao government placed the ASEAN defense ministers’ conference into a quandary.


Douangchay was seen as close to Russia, Vietnam, and China while steering a middle course between the three. His death opens the possibility of a bloc more friendly to the United States and Vietnam coming to the helm in Laos.

No sooner had Laos recovered the bodies of the senior Laotian officials from the crash site, Thailand’s largely U.S.-trained and -supplied military announced they were imposing martial law in Thailand, effectively ending the rule of the democratically-elected government, headed by acting Prime Minister Niwatthamrong Boonsongphaisan since Yingluck’s ouster by a politically-motivated Thai court intent on throwing the populist-based Pheu Thai Party out of power.

Yingluck anf her exiled brother, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, himself ousted in a military coup in 2006, are supported by Thailand’s rural-based “Red Shirt” movement. U.S. intelligence contends that the Red Shirts include a number of Communists supported by China through Laos. The suspicious Lao plane crash followed by the Thai military coup have increased U.S. pressure on China’s influence in Southeast Asia.

Obama’s “pivot to Asia” has seen the Philippines invite the U.S. military to re-establish bases in their country, including one in western Palawan island at Oyster Bay. There are also discussions with Vietnam to permit the U.S. Navy to return to Cam Ranh Bay in southern Vietnam. Obama is the first president since Richard Nixon to preside over a massive U.S. military buildup in Southeast Asia.

Cat Litter Thought "Behind" New Mexico Nuclear Waste Accident

Incompetents most likely interred used cat litter to divert money for beer; were unaware cat crap ferments

RT
05/24/2014

For months state and federal government has been looking into an incident involving radioactive waste at a disposal site in New Mexico. Now, Investigators believe the culprit may have been the wrong kind of cat litter.


In February the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) near Carlsband, New Mexico was placed on lockdown prompted by the detection of radiation. The underground nuclear waste dump is the only such facility in the entire country.

An accident investigation report put out by the Department of Energy in April delved into both the immediate causes, as well as a lack of safety culture leading up to the accident.



The radioactive leak itself is believed to have occurred some 2,000 feet underground, at one of the facility’s waste-storage vaults. Contamination was detected as it reached the surface air, where air filters kicked in as a precaution, and workers were shut out of the facility.

Investigators now say that the 55-gallon drum of radioactive waste which burst open inside WIPP may have contained the wrong kind of cat litter. According to a report by NPR, cat litter is a commonly used product in nuclear waste disposal. The litter is dumped into nuclear waste drums to stabilize volatile radioactive material.


"It actually works well both in the home litter box as well as in the radiochemistry laboratory," James Conca, a geochemist from Washington state, tells NPR. 

Unfortunately, in this case “it was the wrong kitty litter.”



Somewhat ironically, contractors at the Los Alamos National Laboratory seem to have packed the Cold War-era nuclear waste with organic, rather than clay cat litter. Organic litter, unlike the traditional variety, is made using organic material, which carries with it chemicals that can react with the nuclear waste, reports NPR.

"They actually are just fuel, and so they're the wrong thing to add," Conca says. Investigators believe the litter caused the nuclear waste drum to slowly heat up "sort of like a slow burn charcoal briquette instead of an actual bomb."

How such a critical oversight crept into something as seemingly worthy of careful disposal procedures remains unclear.

For his part, Ryan Flynn, New Mexico’s secretary of the environment, has said that the precise cause of the radioactive alert is not 100 percent clear. At the same time, Flynn seemed to tacitly accept that a serious oversight had occurred with scientists at Los Alamos.


"Let's see gentlemen, the cat crap to beer ratio is…"
"How come nobody caught this and raised a red flag?" asked Flynn. "I'm frustrated."

Flynn has said that more than 500 drums of nuclear waste may contain the wrong type of organic cat litter, though they seem to be relatively safe underground, though dozens of drums still remain at the Los Alamos site, along with another in West Texas. 


The drums in Texas have reportedly been placed in protective containers for added safety.

New Mexico’s WIPP facility, built atop a vast salt basin, was built to permanently house radioactive waste for tens of thousands of years. The dangerous materials stored there are the byproduct from nuclear research and the production of nuclear weapons.

The recent leak at the New Mexico compound has brought the issue of nuclear waste back into the limelight. There is currently a mounting stockpile of spent fuel produced by commercial nuclear reactors, which are today stored in-house.

The DOE attempted to develop a new underground waste site in Yucca Mountain in Nevada, and in 2002 the plan was approved by Congress. However, during the Obama administration funding to develop Yucca Mountain was terminated, for reasons which the US Government Accountability Office stated were “political” rather than technical or safety-related.


Pissed off waste site kitties get the shaft, left to crap in low-level nuclear tailings dump

Compounding the issue, say researchers with the DOE, is a minimal budget and the federal government's Nuclear Waste Policy Act, which prevents the agency from looking at alternatives from Yucca Mountain, reports nature.

As for the present cat litter mix-up, "ultimately [the waste is] the responsibility of the Department of Energy," says Flynn. "It's also now their responsibility to clean it up and fix it."

Boko Haram "Created And Funded" By CIA

The ONLY way this banana-powered mob of illiterate, spastic bozos could have pulled this and other attacks off with any success - the destabilisation of Nigera and it's vast oil resources the ultimate target; Next up:  "humanitarian intervention"

PRESS TV
06/24/2014

The US Central Intelligence Agency has created and funded Boko Haram, a Takfiri group that abducted about 300 Nigerian girls last month, says American analyst Randy Short.


"Ize gwine dig fo mah rooots blood!" -  CIA spasm Owunna
Boko Haram “is a CIA-created and funded group,” Short said, adding the group’s “weapons come from Libya. We know that the commander of the so-called Libyan revolutionary forces, Mr. (Khalifa) Hifter was trained by the CIA.”

Speaking in an interview with Press TV on Thursday, Short said the United States aims to break down Nigeria into a micro state.


“There is larger scheme by the Angelo American white supremacist imperialistic power complex to break down the state they have invented in colonial eras for their purposes,” he said.

President Barack Obama said on Wednesday the US has deployed dozens of troops to Chad to help locate the kidnapped schoolgirls in neighboring Nigeria.

However, Short said the US already has troops in the region.

“There are thousands of American personnel already there, this has been going on for a while, the whole purpose is to destroy Nigeria.”


Hilarious mob of CIA "trained" fruitcakes don't know one end of a weapon from the other

“Mr. (Zbigniew) Brzezinski, who is Obama’s advisor for Africa along with Ms. Susan Rice wanted to break Africa to micro states,” he said.

“They don’t give a damn about black women…they’ve been working to destroy the Nigerian state for decades, they don’t care anything about those girls,” he noted.

According to senior American defense officials, the US military is using spy drones as well as manned aircraft over Nigeria to locate the girls who were abducted on the night of April 14th in a small town in northeastern Nigeria.
