Barclays Bankster Bobby D Damned... by Parliament

Bob Diamond, the former chief executive of Barclays, has been accused of misleading Parliament in an unusually strong attack by MPs investigating the Libor scandal
By : In words that are likely to make it difficult for Mr Diamond to hold a senior position in the UK again, the Treasury Select Committee said his evidence “lacked candour”, was “unforthcoming”, and “fell well short of the standard that Parliament expects”.
The criticism was made in a 121-page report into the interest rate rigging scandal that saw Barclays fined a record £290m earlier this year.
Among its wide-ranging conclusions were that Barclays operated for years with woefully inadequate controls, that senior staff at the bank should have taken action earlier, that the Financial Services Authority (FSA) failed in its duty as regulator to respond to rumours of rate-fixing, and that the Bank of England had been “naive” and “inactive”.

Leaked Document Outlines Israel’s “Shock and Awe” Plan to Attack Iran

Tikun Olam: In the past few days, I received an Israeli briefing document outlining Israel’s war plans against Iran. The document was passed to me by a high-level Israeli source who received it from an IDF officer.  My source, in fact, wrote to me that normally he would not leak this sort of document, but:
“These are not normal times. I’m afraid Bibi and Barak are dead serious.”
The reason they leaked it is to expose the arguments and plans advanced by the Bibi-Barak two-headed warrior. Neither the IDF leaker, my source, nor virtually any senior military or intelligence officer wants this war. While whoever wrote this briefing paper had use of IDF and intelligence data, I don’t believe the IDF wrote it. It feels more likely it came from the shop of national security advisor Yaakov Amidror, a former general, settler true-believer and Bibi confidant.  It could also have been produced by Defense Minister Barak, another pro-war booster.
I’ve translated the document from Hebrew with the help of Dena Shunra.
Before laying out the document, I wanted to place it in context. If you’ve been reading this blog you’ll know that after Bibi’s IDF service he became the marketing director for a furniture company. Recent revelations have suggested that he may have also served in some capacity either formally or informally in the Mossad during that period.
This document is a more sophisticated version of selling bedroom sets and three-piece sectionals. The only difference is that this marketing effort could lead to the death of thousands.

Hello UK Consulate? Anybody?

 "Ecuador, I want to live there now, sounds like an awesome place where democracy stands a chance." What really happened in the Uk Consulate?  Wikileaks Australian Citizens Alliance fronted the UK Consulate, Melbourne to grill them about the extraordinary treatment of Julian Assange. They wouldn't talk, so things got interesting. This was not a planned event, we didn't go there expecting to Occupy, but we did so as our small part of a global movement. Worth watching for clues on how to talk to cops in a civil disobedience situation, too. Source

Tales Of The Unexpected: Who Really Benefited From The Euro (Hint: NOT Germany)

Tyler Durden's picture: With austerity supposedly destroying standards of living (that no real austerity has actually been implemented is a different matter entirely) across Europe's insolvent periphery, the only recourse said broke countries (here's looking at you Mario Monti and Mariano Rajoy) have is to desperately attempt to shame those countries who have money such as Germany, Austria, Finland and the Netherlands, aka Europe's AAA club, into shoveling more and more and more cash into the bottomless pit that are the PIIGS. After all, precisely this was the basis for the "hostage and extortion" strategy that Monti employed at the June 29 summit, and which has resulted in a surge in European stocks on hopes Germany will indeed bail everyone out. The reason for this is that, at least according to conventional wisdom, it was these countries that benefited the most from a decade of EUR-facilitated mercantilism, and exported inflation to their spendthrfit (and 'debt-thrift') southern neighbors. So it is only "fair" that these countries now give back a little (or a whole lot) back (just as it is only "fair" that Germany give a helping hand in Obama's reelection chances, which as everyone knows would be negligible if the global capital markets were to tumble just before November if reality in Europe were to come back with a vengeance). Well, as virtually always happens, conventional wisdom is wrong, and as the following chart from UBS demonstrates, when one analyzes the only relevant metric that compares changes in standards of living across various income deciles- namely changes in real disposable household income - it is precisely the PIIGS that benefited, while countries such as Germany and Austria were left in the dust.

Hacking the human brain: researchers demonstrate extraction of sensitive data via brain-computer interface

By Madison Ruppert: As hard as it is to believe, what many might think is the last bastion of total privacy, namely, the human mind, is quickly becoming just as vulnerable as the rest of our lives with the invention of mind-reading helmets and other ways to “hack” the mind.
Now security researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Oxford and the University of Geneva, have created a custom program to interface with brain-computer interface (BCI) devices and steal personal information from unsuspecting victims.
The researchers targeted consumer-grade BCI devices due to the fact that they are quickly gaining popularity in a wide variety of applications including hands-free computer interfacing, video games and biometric feedback programs.
Furthermore, there are now application marketplaces – similar to the ones popularized by Apple and the Android platform – which rely on an API to collect data from the BCI device.

West to blame for bloodbath in Syria: Ammar Waqqaf with Afshin Rattansi

An Iranian lawmaker has condemned the Wednesday bomb explosion in the Syrian capital, Damascus, as part of the Western bids to harm "the triangle of resistance" against Israel. "The US has brought together to Syria all terrorist groups and hooligans and has hired domestic mercenaries in a bid to harm the resistance front and continue its support for the Zionist regime (Israel)," said Ebrahim Aqa-Mohammadi, a member of Iran's Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, on Wednesday.
