FBI Backs Off From Secret Order for Data After Lawsuit (Internet Archive)

Was this for your info, 911veritas?

The FBI has withdrawn a secret administrative order seeking the name, address and online activity of a patron of the Internet Archive after the San Francisco-based digital library filed suit to block the action.

It is one of only three known instances in which the FBI has backed off from such a data demand, known as a "national security letter," or NSL, which is not subject to judicial approval and whose recipient is barred from disclosing the order's existence.

NSLs are served on phone companies, Internet service providers and other electronic communications service providers, but because of the gag order provision, the public has little way to know about them. Their use soared after the September 2001 terrorist attacks, when Congress relaxed the standard for their issuance. FBI officials now issue about 50,000 such orders a year.

Internet Traffic to and from IRAN now completely halted???

According to the website Internet Traffic Report all Internet traffic to and from Iran is now completely halted.

And when I try, neither simple 'ping' nor 'traceroute' gets any respons from the Iranian back bone router

I don't know how reliable the website is but I figured I'd post it anyway.


Internet Archive Confirms BBC Video was BEFORE WTC7 Collapse

Internet Archive just posted the following message:

"Two of the much discussed BBC are available again, but this time as streaming flash files.

Based on the analysis of the time codes, the engineer involved is certain that the BBC was talking about the collapse before the building was reported to have collapsed on the site.

We hope to have other videos from this collection available soon.
