This was originally announced 24-August-1984 known as the UNABOMBER attack at the twin towers of World Trade Center New York and re-issued as 9/11… a REAGAN administration news that spanned to the 2nd Bush Administration(the first one being George W.H. known as the taller Bush). Since only 1 tower was raised down with the original(UNABOMBER), the place is sold as Hong Kong instead of New York today. …   See more photos here…/media_set…

George Palaganas White House: U.S. drone killings legal to combat threats

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. campaign of drone strikes to kill militants in other countries is legal under international law, President Barack Obama’s counterterrorism adviser insisted on Monday in a rare public admission and justification of the controversial tactic.

John Brennan’s speech, on the eve of the one-year anniversary of the U.S. killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in a raid in Pakistan, was remarkable in that U.S. officials in public rarely discuss the drone program, which has for years been considered a covert CIA operation.

The bin Laden commando raid and drone strikes have severely strained U.S. relations with Pakistan. But the frayed ties have not stopped the United States from pursuing militants with the unmanned aircraft that can be remotely piloted from hundreds or thousands of miles away.

Last weekend, a U.S. drone strike killed four suspected militants in Pakistan’s North Waziristan tribal region, despite the recent demand by a Pakistani parliamentary committee that such operations end.

“I’m here today because President Obama has instructed us to be more open with the American people about these efforts,” Brennan said in a speech at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, a Washington think tank.

“These targeted strikes are legal,” he said, citing legal opinions from the administration, the U.S. Constitution and the Authorization for Use of Military Force passed by Congress after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

“As a matter of international law, the United States is in an armed conflict with al Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces, in response to the 9/11 attacks, and we may also use force consistent with our inherent right of national self-defense,” Brennan said.

“There is nothing in international law that bans the use of remotely piloted aircraft for this purpose or that prohibits us from using lethal force against our enemies outside of an active battlefield, at least when the country involved consents or is unable or unwilling to take action against the threat,” he said.


The killing of suspected militants, including American citizens overseas, by U.S. drones has been criticized by human rights and civil liberties groups.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit earlier this year seeking Justice Department memos justifying the targeted killings, such as the strike against dual U.S.-Yemeni citizen Anwar al-Awlaki last year.

Brennan’s speech was important as an “unambiguous acknowledgement” of the program and the clearest explanation so far of administration legal views, the ACLU said in a statement.

“We continue to believe, based on the information available, that the program itself is not just unlawful but dangerous,” Hina Shamsi, director of the ACLU National Security Project, said. “It is dangerous to characterize the entire planet as a battlefield.”

Brennan said criticism that the United States prefers killing militants over capturing them is wrong. “It is our preference to capture suspected terrorists whenever feasible,” he said.

“We do not use force whenever we want, wherever we want,” he said. “International legal principles, including respect for a state’s sovereignty and the laws of war, impose constraints. The United States of America respects national sovereignty and international law.”

He said the United States was mindful that it was setting precedents for other countries that possess this technology or are seeking it.

“If we want other nations to use these technologies responsibly, we must use them responsibly,” Brennan said. “We cannot expect of others what we will not do ourselves. President Obama has therefore demanded that we hold ourselves to the highest possible standards – that, at every step, we be as thorough and deliberate as possible.”

The issue of targeted strikes raises “profound moral questions,” Brennan said. “If anyone in government who works in this area tells you they haven’t struggled with this, then they haven’t spent much time thinking about it. I know I have, and I will continue to struggle with it as long as I remain involved in counterterrorism.”

George Palaganas Prince William and Kate get new titles: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
Comments (0) (11)(1)April 29, 2011 | 12:55 am


This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.

On the morning of the royal wedding, the queen has declared new titles for Prince William and Kate Middleton: the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Kate will get the title “Her Royal Highness,” but she will not be — formally — Princess Catherine.

To be determined: whether, as William’s wife, she will be called Princess William of Wales. That is to be decided and announced later.

William becomes Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus. The dukedom of Cambridge stretches back several centuries but died out in 1904. It’s now being revived by the queen by her royal prerogative.

Lots of bunting, Union Jacks and souvenirs were out on the London streets Friday morning around Westminster Abbey. The police were out in force, and a helicopter buzzed overhead. Free cardboard “telescopes” were being handed out, and lots of hats were in evidence, in keeping with British tradition on grand occasions.

Skies were cloudy, with a faint patch of blue here and there, as people streamed in from the tube and elsewhere in advance of the royal wedding.

With wedding guests already arriving by a back road behind the abbey, photographers snapped away.

[For the record, 1:33 a.m. April 29: This post originally said Kate Middleton would be called Princess William of Wales. That is to be decided and announced at a future time.]

THAT dress
Prince William has been made Duke of Cambridge, and his wife the Duchess of Cambridge, Buckingham Palace has said.


The prince has also taken the titles Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus, linking him to Scotland and Northern Ireland.

He has been given the titles by the Queen to mark his marriage. Catherine also becomes her royal highness.

Giving new titles to a member of the Royal Family on their wedding day is a long-standing tradition.

When Prince Andrew married, he became the Duke of York, Earl of Inverness and Baron Killyleagh.

Prince Edward became the Earl of Wessex and Viscount Severn on his wedding day in 1999.

While the Prince of Wales did not take any additional titles when he married Lady Diana Spencer in 1981, he was already Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland and Earl of Chester.

New Scots title for royal couple
Prince is Baron of Carrickfergus
The Dukedom of Cambridge was created in 1801 but became extinct on the death of the 2nd Duke of Cambridge in 1904.

Genealogist Charles Kidd, editor of Debrett’s Peerage And Baronetage, said it was a good choice for the prince.

“Cambridge was generally spoken of as a high possibility. It has a long royal tradition, and is immediately recognisable as an English title, it’s one of those places everyone has heard of.”

Professor David Carpenter, of King’s College, London, said there may have been consideration of using the title of Duke of Clarence but it had some unfortunate associations.

“Queen Victoria’s grandson Albert Victor, who was second in line to the throne, was made Duke of Clarence when he reached full age, but he was a womanising philanderer who died in the 1890s.”

‘Doomed to failure’

The last holder of the title, Prince George, known as the 2nd Duke of Cambridge, was born in 1819 and was a grandson of George III and the only son of Prince Adolphus Frederick, the 1st Duke of Cambridge.

He served in the Crimean War and was promoted to commander-in-chief in 1887.

Indeed, once married, the newly-weds’ carriage procession will pass a statue of the last duke sitting on a horse close to the Ministry of Defence in Whitehall.

The 2nd Duke of Cambridge refused to have an arranged marriage and declared such unions were “doomed to failure”.

He had an unrecognised marriage to actress Sarah Louisa Fairbrother in 1847, who at the time was already the mother of two of his children and pregnant with his third.

But the Duke did not seek the sovereign’s approval, the marriage was never recognised and Miss Fairbrother was never given the title the Duchess of Cambridge.

Instead she became known by the nickname Mrs FitzGeorge.

Strathearn has not been used as a title since the death of Alastair Windsor, the 2nd Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, who died in 1943.

By becoming Baron and Baroness Carrickfergus, the royal couple will be linked to County Antrim’s oldest town.

An Irish Viscountcy of Chichester of Carrickfergus now held by the Marquess of Donegall was created in 1625 but Carrickfergus alone only existed as a title between 1841 and 1883.
