A Vatican official called for the establishment of a "nuclear-free zone" in the Middle East and urged all countries to work toward total the elimination of their nuclear arsenals. Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, the Vatican's foreign affairs minister, released a statement Sept. 24 outlining the Vatican stance on nuclear disarmament. The U.N. Security Council held a summit the same day to discuss nuclear disarmament and nuclear nonproliferation.Abasshole to tour Yemen, Syria and Italy
"Nuclear-weapons-free zones are the best example of trust, confidence and affirmation that peace and security are possible without nuclear weapons," said Archbishop Mamberti. He strongly encouraged all countries with nuclear capabilities to adopt all the protocols of nuclear-free treaties and to "establish such a zone in the Middle East." Under the treaties, nations agree to ban the development and use of nuclear weapons in a set location. The United States has not signed such a treaty. It has, however, signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which aims at limiting the spread of nuclear weapons.
The Security Council summit adopted a resolution to stop the spread of nuclear weapons, calling for tighter controls on nuclear materials and encouraging the enforcement of international treaties dealing with nuclear nonproliferation. Archbishop Mamberti said that responding to the modern world's need for safety and security "demands courageous leadership in reducing nuclear arsenals to zero."
He said the adoption of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty is of "highest importance," adding that the universal banning of explosions of nuclear components in the testing phase "would inhibit the development of nuclear weapons, contributing to nuclear disarmament." Praising the summit initiative, the archbishop urged the Security Council to take further steps to "become a valid advocate in the cause of reaching a world free from nuclear weapons." He also urged nations around the world to follow the example of the Security Council by adopting clear and firm decisions aimed at a "progressive and concerted nuclear disarmament."

Prime Minister Salam Fayyad's Two-Year Path to Palestinian Statehood
- In August 2009, Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad announced a unilateral plan to establish a de facto Palestinian state in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem following a two-year state-building process. Fayyad's plan is the first serious Palestinian outline of a state-building effort since the PLO was founded in 1964 and replaces the traditional PLO position of armed struggle to "liberate Palestine."
- The Fayyad plan represents a bold anti-Fatah posture and is seen to pose a direct challenge to Fatah and its leader, Mahmoud Abbas. Fayyad enjoys only limited political backing and his political rivals, such as Tawfiq Tirawi, Abu Maher Gneim, and Mahmud al-Alul, who were recently elected to the new Fatah Central Committee, have already blasted Fayyad's plans.

During a hearing on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, FBI Director Robert Mueller was asked if members of al-Shabaab, which translates as "mujahideen youth," would send American recruits back to the U.S. to launch attacks."I would think that we have seen some information that the leaders would like to undertake operations outside of Somalia," Mueller told the Senate Homeland Security Committee.Mueller said he is "absolutely" concerned that Americans who traveled to Somalia to train as terrorists would have U.S. legal status and would therefore be able to return to the United States and carry out attacks.Al-Qaida Linked Group Gains Control of Somali Port City

The proposed methods that Islamic groups presented for re-establishing al Caliphate are:

Iran has agreed 'in principle' to a deal that would move most of its enriched uranium out of the country. Western officials say this would ease tensions in the Middle East caused by fears Tehran wants a nuclear weapon. The agreement was announced by European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana after a meeting in Geneva of senior officials from the United States, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia with Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili. Following are details about what Iran has agreed to based on comments on from Western officials after the Geneva talks.

Halt to gov't raids not an option to boost census
With the census six months away, the Commerce Department says it won't seek to halt immigration raids as a way to boost participation in hard-to-count communities.In a statement Thursday, the department said it is committed to an accurate count of U.S. residents, including both legal and illegal immigrants. But spokesman Nick Kimball says officials will not ask the Homeland Security Department to refrain from exercising their "legal authority" to conduct large-scale immigration raids. That position is a departure from the one taken in the 2000 census, when immigration officials at the request of the Census Bureau informally agreed not to conduct raids. The bureau two years ago asked DHS to hold off again in 2010, but that was rejected by the Bush administration.US Homeland Security Wants Cybersecurity Pros

Raytheon to supply Air Force with ID Friend or Foe equipment
Top leadership at the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments have assigned broad responsibilities for development of a lifetime electronic health and benefit record for military personnel and veterans to a relatively new interagency program office that lacks a director, according to an internal document obtained by Nextgov.
The new charter for the Defense/VA Interagency Program Office, formed in 2007 to shepherd development of interoperable health record systems, is "broad and breathtaking in scope," said Harold Gracey, who was VA chief of staff from 1994 to 1998 and now is with Vienna, Va.-based Topside Consulting.In April, President Obama, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and VA Secretary Eric Shinseki announced plans to develop a Joint Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record, and the charter for the interagency program office details how that goal will be met. The charter, signed on Sept. 24 by VA Deputy Secretary W. Scott Gould and on July 17 by Deputy Defense Secretary William Lynn, expands the scope of the Interagency Program Office to include the sharing of electronic personnel and benefits records between the two departments.

Last week, Waltham-based Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for meeting specific greenhouse gas emission-reduction goals under the agency’s Climate Leaders program. Raytheon had pledged to reduce emissions from its U.S. operations by 33 percent from 2002 through this year. The company exceeded its goal, cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 38 percent a year ahead of schedule. The reductions equate to the emissions from electricity consumed by 36,400 homes in a year. Raytheon has now set a second goal to cut emissions by 10 percent from 2008 through 2015.
Last month, Raytheon landed $19.3 million from the U.S. Navy for torpedo hardware. Under the contract, Raytheon will provide the Navy with 241 MK54 lightweight torpedo kits, 100 of which will go to the Turkish Navy under a Foreign Military Sales agreement.

But Tether — who served for more than seven years as the head of the Pentagon’s premiere research arm — says he won’t be doing any lobbying in his new role.The World Wearies of the Narcissist-in-Chief
“I won’t be going to the Hill or otherwise,” he tells Danger Room. Instead, Tether says he’ll serve as a part-time technical consultant and “strategic advisor” for the influencers at The Livingston Group.
Earlier in September, Tether joined an advisory panel of Scientific Systems Company, Inc., which works on robotics projects for the Pentagon. In June, he joined the board of Aurora Flight Sciences, Inc., developers of military unmanned aircraft.
The company was founded by Republican Congressman Bob Livingston in 1999, after he stepped down as Speaker-elect of the House following his admission of marital infidelity. Today, the company “has an extensive network of over 60 principals and consultants” and “over 50 domestic and international clients,” the firm’s website notes. Those clients include defense contractors like Northrop Grumman, CACI International, Raytheon, and Accenture, according to SourceWatch. The Republic of Turkey, the Cayman Islands, and the Council for a Democratic Iran have also enlisted The Livingston Group’s services.

Support Drops in US for Abortion Rights, Poll Shows
Two weeks ago I spent time with some of the top scientists in the field of alternative energy, including John Holdren, the director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, a.k.a. our national "science czar." We were attending a conference in Washington, D.C., that drew CEOs of Fortune 100 companies, as well as entrepreneurs and investors. I came away convinced that the United States, which for decades has been the world leader in science and technology, will soon be eclipsed by China and other countries. Alternative energy is the next tidal wave in tech innovation. If we miss it, we will not only weaken our economy and harm our national security—we will turn ourselves into a second-rate nation. And as I sat there listening to the experts speak, all I could think was, we're doomed. (Click here to follow Daniel Lyons)
It's not because our scientists aren't brilliant. They are. But look at what they're up against: a noisy babble of morons and Luddites, the "Drill, baby, drill" crowd, the birthers, and tea-party kooks who have done their best to derail health-care reform and will do the same to any kind of energy policy. Holdren has an undergraduate degree from MIT and a Ph.D. from Stanford; he has won countless awards for his work on nuclear proliferation, climate change, alternative energy, and population growth. But now he must sell his ideas to people who couldn't pass high-school algebra—and who believe they know more than he does.
Incompetence Ruling in Killing of Abortion Protester
Yet another story no one is covering. Where are all the cries of Domestic Terrorism! from the usual suspects? Oh. Right. So anyway...MFer is INCOMPENTENT to stand trial now too. OK.
The man charged with killing an abortion protester in early September in Owosso, Mich., and another man the same day has been deemed incompetent to stand trial, prosecutors said. The man, Harlan J. Drake, is charged with killing James Pouillon, 63, on Sept. 11, shooting him as Mr. Pouillon stood near Owosso High School holding a sign protesting abortion.WATER WILL INCREASINGLY BECOME WEAPON OF WAR WORLD WIDE:
In an unrelated shooting on the same day, Mr. Drake is charged with killing Mike Fuoss, 61, the owner of a local gravel company. On Wednesday, the judge in the case ordered Mr. Drake, 33, committed to the custody of the Michigan Department of Mental Health to begin psychiatric treatment. If he is rendered competent, a preliminary examination would be set, the Shiawasee County prosecutor’s office said. It is unclear how long the treatment will last. In his order, Judge Terrance P. Dignan of 66th District Court in Corunna, Mich., held that “there is a substantial probability that Mr. Drake, if provided a course of treatment, will attain competence to stand trial,” said a statement released by Sara L. Edwards, chief assistant prosecutor.
