Passengers disembark NH bus in handcuffs, M-16s pointed at them --Passenger: Police Tasered, handcuffed  man in his 60s who refused to give police his name 07 May 2010 A tense standoff with a passenger aboard a Boston-bound Greyhound bus ended 'peacefully' last night when he surrendered to police, nearly 10 hours after authorities received a call about a suspicious device on board. Earlier, sixteen other adult passengers and the driver had exited the bus, which originated in Bangor, Maine and arrived in Portsmouth for a regularly scheduled stop at about 11:20 a.m. Minutes later, someone aboard the bus called 911 and reported the apparent device, police said. Authorities quickly surrounded the bus and evacuated nearby buildings... Coming just days after a failed car bombing in New York City, the threat drew an overwhelming response, with bomb squads, SWAT teams, and a sharpshooter in an armored vehicle descending on the scene... At about 2 p.m., 2 1/2 hours after arriving in Portsmouth, passengers began leaving the bus one by one, holding their hands in the air as they walked slowly past tactical teams with guns drawn. As they disembarked, some could be seen lifting up their shirts, apparently to show they were unarmed, and being quickly surrounded by authorities. Some could be seen in handcuffs. Once all the passengers got off, they were each put in handcuffs and taken to the police station, where they were questioned individually.

High-Speed Trading Glitch Costs Investors Billions

High-Speed Trading Glitch Costs Investors Billions 06 May 2010 The glitch that sent markets tumbling Thursday was years in the making, driven by the rise of computers that transformed stock trading more in the last 20 years than in the previous 200.

Thousands unable to vote as polling stations fail to cope

Thousands unable to vote as polling stations fail to cope 06 May 2010 Thousands of people were deprived of their right to vote last night as polling stations across the country were unable to cope with demand.

US oil regulator 'gave in to BP' over rig safety

US oil regulator 'gave in to BP' over rig safety --Firm allowed to drill without devising plan to cope with blow-out 07 May 2010 As crude oil continued to pour out of control into the Gulf of Mexico yesterday, questions were being asked over the relationship between BP and regulators in Washington amid allegations that the company was allowed to drill the deepwater well without filing plans for how it would cope with a blow-out like the one now in hand... An investigation by the Associated Press and other media outlets seemed to show that, after lobbying by BP, the Minerals Management Service (MMS) within the Interior Department relaxed the rules so that the company could dodge filing a proper blow-out contingency plan.

Guantanamo Suspect Must Submit to Strip Search

Guantanamo Suspect Must Submit to Strip Search 06 May 2010 The first man brought from the Guantanamo Bay military prison to face trial in U.S. civilian court must attend the opening of his trial, forcing him to submit to strip searches he has resisted, a judge ruled on Thursday. U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani is competent to waive his right to be present for most court proceedings but said Ghailani must appear at least once at the start of trial... Ghailani has refused to voluntarily appear in court because doing so requires him to submit to a visual strip search that includes inspection of the rectal area. Such a search, according to expert testimony offered by his defense attorneys, triggers memories of CIA interrogations.

Obama sheltered BP's Deepwater Horizon rig from regulatory requirement

Obama sheltered BP's Deepwater Horizon rig from regulatory requirement By Tom Eley 06 May 2010 Last year the Obama administration granted oil giant BP a special exemption from a legal requirement that it produce a detailed environmental impact study on the possible effects of its Deepwater Horizon drilling operation in the Gulf of Mexico, an article Wednesday in the Washington Post reveals. Federal documents show that the Department of the Interior's Minerals Management Service (MMS) gave BP a "categorical exclusion" on April 6, 2009 to commence drilling with Deepwater Horizon even though it had not produced the impact study required by a law known as the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The report would have included probable ecological consequences in the event of a spill.

CIA allowed to kill terrorist suspects without identification

The expanded authority, approved two years ago by the Bush regime and continued by Barack Obama, permits the agency to rely on what officials describe as "pattern-of-life" analysis, using evidence collected by surveillance cameras on the unmanned aircraft and from other sources about individuals and locations. [Why aren't civilians taking down these killer drones?]

Faisal Shahzad 'carried out dry run' before Times Square attack 06 May 2010 The man accused of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in Times Square carried out a dry run days before the failed attack, it has been claimed. Faisal Shahzad, who is in custody in New York on terrorism and weapons charges, drove from his home in Connecticut to the theatre district on April 28 in the vehicle that days later he would pack with explosives, a law enforcement official told the Associated Press. Mr Shahzad then returned on April 30 - the day before the attack - to drop off a black Isuzu get-away vehicle near to the target site.

The far-reaching proposals, seen by the Guardian, also call for "deradicalisation" classes for insurgents and thousands of new manual jobs created for foot soldiers who renounce violence.

Car bomb suspect who slipped under radar is son of air force chief

'There were clues in Connecticut -- but only to the paranoid.' Car bomb suspect who slipped under radar is son of air force chief 06 May 2010 There were clues in Pakistan but only to the tight handful of [CIA] minders who knew what Faisal Shahzad was planning. What is beyond doubt is that he first came to the US in 1998 as 19-year-old student, the son of an air vice-marshal of the Pakistani Air Force, Baharul Haq, who remains well known as the founder of the Sherdils, the country’s leading military aerobatics team. He acquired two degrees, in computer science and business administration, from small private colleges in Washington and Bridgeport, Connecticut. His entitlement to citizenship came courtesy of his wife, Huma Mian, the daughter of a successful oil executive.
