FBI coughs up new 9/11 records about Sarasota; Documents, evidence missing

 

Newly released FBI documents say agents investigating 9/11 connections did not obtain security records from a Sarasota-area gated community containing alleged evidence that 9/11 hijackers had visited the residence of a Saudi family with ties to the royal family.

The memorandum also fails to explain, as the commission’s final report suggested it would, the basis for FBI statements made to the 9/11 Review Commission that sought to discredit an April 2002 FBI report that – contrary to the FBI’s public comments – said agents found “many connections” between the Sarasota Saudis and “individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.”

A heavily censored copy of the four-page Memorandum for the Record is among more than 200 pages of declassified 9/11 Review Commission records released to FloridaBulldog.org this month by the FBI amid ongoing Freedom of Information litigation.

Court says medical marijuana use in compliance with state law can’t be federally prosecuted

 

Partial victory, related to funding of DOJ activities:

We therefore conclude that, at a minimum, § 542 prohibits DOJ from spending funds from relevant appropriations acts for the prosecution of individuals who engaged in conduct permitted by the State Medical Marijuana Laws and who fully complied with such laws.

Bill Cosby Admits to Giving Quaaludes to Woman, Seeking the Drug for Others, Court Documents Say

FB-DEM-ClapperVictory-400x400

ACLU wins in court, but the government will likely ignore it and appeal.

We filed this lawsuit days after Edward Snowden’s first revelations two years ago, challenging the constitutionality of the NSA’s mass collection of Americans’ phone records. This is the first appeals court ruling on the program.

The impact of this ruling will extend far beyond the mass phone records program and call into question the legality of many other government mass surveillance programs – and truly demonstrate the need for systemic reform.

Stupid cop? It’s official now!

Court OKs Barring High IQs for Cops

Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, took the exam in 1996 and scored 33 points, the equivalent of an IQ of 125. But New London police interviewed only candidates who scored 20 to 27, on the theory that those who scored too high could get bored with police work and leave soon after undergoing costly training.

Occupy Houston assassination plot records won’t be released

(CN) – The FBI was right to withhold records about an alleged murder plot targeting the leaders of Occupy Houston, to protect its informants, a federal judge ruled.
Plaintiff Ryan Noah Shapiro is a doctoral student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research includes “the policing of dissent … especially in the name of national security” and “examining FBI and other intelligence agency efforts to preserve domestic surveillance capabilities while simultaneously subverting the Freedom of Information Act,” according to his MIT profile.
Shapiro sent the FBI three Freedom of Information Act requests in early 2013, asking for records about “a potential plan to gather intelligence against the leaders of [Occupy Wall Street-related protests in Houston] and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership [of the protests] via suppressed sniper rifles.”

This is Obama’s FBI and Obama’s “Justice Department” helping domestic terrorists who had plotted to kill Occupy leaders. Why aren’t they being prosecuted? Why aren’t they under arrest?

The bullshit fake “alternative” media doesn’t even touch this because it’s Obama’s jurisdiction. They can’t just blame it all on Bush. This is what partisan, two-party schizoid politics has done to this country. Domestic terrorists go free without consequence, and the so-called “liberal left”  won’t even talk about it.
