Justice Department Proposes Letting Government Deny Existence of Sensitive Documents

 

A longtime internal policy that allowed Justice Department officials to deny the existence of sensitive information could become the law of the land — in effect a license to lie — if a newly proposed rule becomes federal regulation in the coming weeks.

The proposed rule directs federal law enforcement agencies, after personnel have determined that documents are too delicate to be released, to respond to Freedom of Information Act requests “as if the excluded records did not exist.”

Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, says the move appears to be in direct conflict with the administration’s promise to be more open.

“Despite all the talk of transparency, I can’t think of what’s less transparent than saying a document does not exist, when in fact, it does,” Sekulow told Fox News.

Justice Department officials say the practice has been in effect for decades, dating back to a 1987 memo from then-Attorney General Edwin Meese.

In that memo, and subsequent similar internal documents, Justice Department staffers were advised that they could reply to certain FOIA requests as if the documents had never been created. That policy never became part of the law — or even codified as a federal regulation — and it was recently challenged in court.

Earlier this year, in a case involving the Islamic Council of Southern California brought against the FBI after the plaintiffs learned about the existence of documents denied by the FBI, a federal judge in California expressed great concern about the agency using the internal policy not only in response to the FOIA but to mislead the court.

“The government, cannot, under any circumstance, affirmatively mislead the court. … The court simply cannot perform its constitutional function if the government does not tell the truth,” the judge wrote in a stinging rebuke.

A final version of the proposal could be issued by the end of 2011. If approved, the new rule would officially become a federal regulation with the force of law.

But the Justice Department got so much pushback in response to the proposal that it took the unusual step of re-opening the public comment period after it had already been closed. That second comment period closed last week.

When the new comment period began, the American Civil Liberties Union became one of the most vocal critics of the proposal. Mike German, Policy Counsel with the ACLU, authored a lengthy letter in opposition.

“It’s shocking that you would twist what is supposed to be a statute — that’s supposed to give people access to what the government is doing — in a way that would allow the government to actually mislead the American public,” German told Fox News.

Melanie Ann Pustay, director of the Justice Department’s Office of Information Policy, said the entire consideration process for the proposal “has been open and transparent.”

She also notes that sensitive information requires special consideration.

“To ensure that the integrity of the exclusion is maintained, agencies must ensure that their responses do not reveal the existence of excluded records,” Pustay said.

Sekulow says he is not buying that argument, and argued that FOIA requesters who get a response telling them that officials can neither confirm or deny the existence of documents now can at least go to court to sue for more information.

If they’re told that no documents exist, there is no basis for a legal challenge at all, Sekulow said.

“The real concern is here is it changes the entire dynamic of what the law was intended to do, and really gives the Department of Justice the upper hand in area where they shouldn’t have it.”

Northern California Police Recognize Mexico IDs

October 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

Are We not supposed to be a nation of laws?

If we do not wake up, we will never turn our country around we will become in the world nation!!!!!!!!


Two law enforcement agencies in northern California will start accepting Mexican consular cards as a valid form of identification to help reduce the number of deportations in the area and lower the number of people jailed for minor offenses, The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported.

“Today is a great day,” Lorenzo Duenas, an assistant sheriff in Sonoma County told an energized Santa Rosa high school auditorium decorated with Mexican blankets, according to the paper. “We’re now going to accept the matricular consular ID.”

Under the former policy, a Mexican national without proper ID could be jailed without ever being convicted of an offense. To be sure, after being fingerprinted, they would remain incarcerated until being handed over to immigration agents, the paper reported. Under the new policy, Mexican nationals with the ID would be allowed to go free as long as  they’re not suspected of any other offense.

The multiagency decision was greeted warmly by the Mexican community in the area that in recent years watched families break apart because of non-criminal deportations, Leticia Romero, the vice president of the North Bay Organizing Project, said.

“It’s important for a community to feel safe where they live,” she told FoxNews.com. “The fear of being pulled over on your way to work could be difficult.”

The Mexican consulate will likely open locations in the area to help individuals apply for the cards.

Romero said the new policy will likely be established in January, and anyone arrested and processed under the old law would be unaffected by the change.

Libyan Leader Declares Nation Islamic, Sharia Law to be Implemented; Is another Radical Islamist State Forming?

Libya’s new leader declared his country’s liberation Sunday and set out  plans for the future with an Islamist tone. In a televised address,  transitional leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil declared his nation will adopt Sharia  law as the basis of government, and immediately announced the canceling  of all bank loans in violation of such law. The announcement may prove a  serious setback for the Obama administration, which had promised support  for a post-Gadhafi democratic Libya.

And he [Transitional government leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil] laid out a vision for the post-Gadhafi future with an Islamist tint, saying Islamic Sharia law would be the “basic source” of legislation and existing laws that contradict the teachings of Islam would be nullified. In a gesture that showed his own piety, he urged Libyans not to express their joy by firing guns in the air, but rather to chant “Allahu Akbar,” or God is Great. He then stepped aside from the podium and knelt to offer a brief prayer of thanks.

Abdul-Jalil said new banks would be set up to follow the Islamic banking system, which bans charging interest as a practice deemed usury. For the time being, he said interest would be canceled from any personal loans already taken out and less than 10,000 Libyan dinars (about $7,500).

He also announced the annulment of an existing family law that limits the number of wives Libyan can take, contradicting the provision in the Muslim holy book, the Quran, that allows men up to four wives.

Cybercommand chief opposes U.N. net control ‘Government survivability’ issue

October 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

BALTIMORE — The commander of the U.S. Cyber Command said Thursday that he does not favor giving the United Nations the power to regulate the Internet.

Some regulations are needed to protect critical networks that control electrical power, banking, transportation and other key elements of society, Army Gen. Keith Alexander, who is also director of the National Security Agency, said after a speech to a security conference.

But asked whether the U.N. should have a regulation role, Gen. Alexander said: “No. I’m not for regulating, per se. I’m concerned about it, and this is a tough question. I would say, generally speaking, I’m not into that portion of regulating as you would espouse.”

Last month, Russia, China, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan submitted a resolution to the U.N. General Assembly calling for giving individual states the right to control the Internet. The resolution, submitted Sept. 14, calls for “an international code of conduct for information security.”

It requests “international deliberations within the United Nations framework on such an international code, with the aim of achieving the earliest possible consensus on international norms and rules guiding the behavior of states in the information space.”

China tightly controls the Internet through a cybersecurity police force estimated to be more than 10,000 people who monitor Internet users and websites.

Russia’s authoritarian government has taken steps in recent years to curb Internet freedoms. Uzbekistan and Tajikistan also are authoritarian regimes that seek to control Internet use.

Gen. Alexander said that, rather than seeking U.N. regulation, individual countries “first need to step up and say, ‘Look, how do we do this without regulating it?’ “

The four-star general suggested bolstering Internet security by using “cloud” technology, which uses remote computer servers for applications and data storage. Other new technologies that permit greater visibility of cyberthreats on networks also can be used to improve security, he said.

“I do think that there may be some things for critical infrastructure and government networks that we’re going to have to direct out to the government,” Gen. Alexander said. “These are things that you must do to secure your networks for government survivability.”

Additionally, security cooperation between nations can be improved, he said.

“But for my grandchildren and my daughters out there, they have a great time on the network,” he said. “I would not want somebody to say you cannot let your 2-year-old grab the iPad and launch [an application].”

As for future considerations, Gen. Alexander said U.S. policymakers are discussing whether U.S. firms should be required to divulge information about cyber-attacks.

Additionally, he said: “I think down the road we have to figure out how do we ensure that your platforms do not create a public hazard, but I’m not sure I would put that in regulation.”

In a speech to the Information Systems Security Association conference, Gen. Alexander said U.S. development of the Internet brought tremendous benefits and “tremendous vulnerabilities” that can be exploited by hackers, criminals and nation states.
U.S. corporations were victims of cyber-attacks, including Google, Lockheed Martin and Booz Allen Hamilton, and some have lost valuable intellectual property through cybertheft and espionage.

The threat is increasing as the use of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers increases.

“Here’s what concerns me: What we’re seeing is destructive [digital] payloads coming out, payloads that can make a blue screen of death, that can stop your operating system, your router or peripheral devices,” Gen. Alexander said.

Mobile devices increase the problem by “orders of magnitude” because of the lack of security built up over the past decade for desktop devices, he said.

Both are connected to networks, “and the issues we are going to see are huge,” Gen. Alexander said.

Shawn Henry, FBI executive assistant director for cyber-issues and a conference speaker, said a better network architecture is needed to identify cybercriminals who can operate anonymously.

Mr. Henry also called for better “assurance” for Internet communications to prevent someone from breaking into links that control key infrastructure. For example, computer communications between a technician remotely directing an electrical facility need better security, he said.

“The Internet was developed with protocols allowing for anonymity and there are legitimate reasons for wanting it that way,” Mr. Henry said. “But for those critical uses of the Internet where intrusion is entirely unacceptable and we must be able to identify the users, market-driven factors may prompt the private sector to explore solutions and alternate architectures to meet those needs.”

“We need a more secure architecture that allows for absolute attribution,” he said. “Threats are continuing to increase and we cannot constantly play defense.”

Occupy Wall Street -socialists Americans

October 19, 2011 in Uncategorized

These kids go to college and get brainwashed into believing a theory that in no way represents what America stands for. That this is a Land of Opportunity that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

When are the parents of these kids going to take some responsibility and explain to them what the difference is between Capitalism and Socialism.

America understands that this Wall Street occupation is not a spontaneous event but one that thas  been planned for a long time and soon the sponsors will pull the trigger and we will know exactly what will be in store for us.

God willing this will end peacefully.

If not, America needs to get ready for the  most dreadful events to occur in a country.

God bless the United States of America!
