DoD panel agrees with Biden: Next president "likely" to face crisis in first 270 days

DOD Panel: Next President to 'Likely' to Face Crisis in First 270 Days

October 24, 2008 -- The next president is likely to face a major international crisis within his first nine months in office, according to a senior group of business advisers to the defense secretary.

Accordingly, the Defense Business Board says the new administration should set a goal to win Senate confirmation of key Pentagon posts in the first 30 days of the inauguration, in order to have a full team in place to deal with such a contingency.

Michael Bayer, chairman of the Defense Business Board and veteran Pentagon consultant, this week called for the next administration to move quickly to avoid encountering civilian leadership vacuums that often accompany political transitions.

“Prepare for a likely first 270 days crisis,” Bayer warns in an Oct. 23 briefing. “Too many presidents were ill prepared for this.”

Reuters Evacuates NY Newsroom in Powder Scare
Reuters

NEW YORK

The New York newsroom of Reuters News was evacuated for nearly three hours on Monday after receiving an envelope with a "puff of powder" in it, Reuters spokeswoman Jolie Hunt said.

Police told staff to evacuate the 19th-floor Times Square newsroom after Brian Rhoads, the company's managing editor for the Americas, opened an envelope and a "puff of powder" came out of it, Hunt said.

Police isolated the envelope, and Rhoads, and then told the 140 members of staff to leave as a precautionary measure while they investigated. Staff made arrangements to ensure the company could put out a news file from other offices.
Nearly three hours later, Hunt said authorities told Reuters the powder was harmless and workers returned to the desk.

The New York office is the headquarters of Thomson Reuters, the parent company, and the newsroom is the firm's second largest after London.

Responding to a Conspiracy Theorist’s Confessions

by David A.G. Fischer / October 27th, 2008

A recent article on DV establishes a solid and fundamentally simple interpretation for “conspiracy theory” as a theory based on nothing more than individuals conspiring, a human attribute going back centuries – a behavior that even a conspiracy theory critic, with any sense at all, would not refute. Its relevance to the formulation of scientific theory parallels precisely. However, a majority of the population will continue to point the finger of ridicule for adhering to such nonsense.

Feds disrupt skinhead plot to assassinate Obama

Law enforcement agents have broken up a plot by two neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 88 black people, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives said Monday.

In court records unsealed Monday in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Tenn., federal agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school in a murder spree that was to begin in Tennessee. Agents said the skinheads did not identify the school by name.

Jim Cavanaugh, special agent in charge of ATF's Nashville field office, said the two men planned to kill 88 black people, including 14 by beheading. The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.

The men also sought to go on a national killing spree after the Tennessee murders, with Obama as its final target, Cavanaugh told The Associated Press.

Jonathan Kay of the National Post reveals just how ignorant he really is about 9/11.

(Edit: I changed the headline of this blog from an insult directed at Kay generally, referring to how big of an 'a-hole' he is, to something a little less offensive, and a little more apt. My apologies, Mr. Kay, you are just ignorant. -rep.)

He admits he's never read the 9/11 Commission Report or any of its rebuttals.

NTSB Affirms Dubious Explanation For Pentagon "Black Box" Data File Time Stamp Discrepancy

NTSB Answer To Request For Correction Appeal

Within a Request for Correction appeal response, the NTSB affirms its prior position regarding a Flight Data Recorder (FDR) download file attributed to the FDR recovered from the crash scene of American Airlines flight 77, containing a creation time-stamp preceding the discovery of the said FDR by over four hours.

NTSB General Counsel Gary L. Halbert:

"Finally, you state that "the 'FDR' file 'American 77' contains a 'Modified' time and date stamp of 'Thursday, September 13, 2001, 11:45:38 PM,' indicating that edits and modifications to this file were completed 4 hours and 15 minutes before the FDR reportedly belonging to American Airlines flight 77 was actually recovered," and that, "[t]herefore, the use by the NTSB of information obtained from the 'FDR' file' American 77' ... is obviously in error." This also, as previously indicated, is not an error."

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. – John Feal, founding president of the FealGood Foundation and a demolition expert who worked at Ground Zero following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, will bring his message to Upshur County students and residents on Friday, Oct. 24. Feal and up to seven other first responders will meet with students at Buchannon Upshur High School beginning at 8:30 a.m. The group will meet with the community later in the day.

Feal, like 70 percent of 9/11 workers, suffers from post-9/11 illnesses. One of his feet had to be amputated after being crushed by an eight-ton steel beam. He also suffers from a respiratory syndrome called World Trade Center Cough and posttraumatic stress disorder.
