WASHINGTON -- Seven Central Intelligence Agency officers and contractors were killed and six more wounded in a suicide bomb attack in Afghanistan, the CIA Director Leon Panetta said Thursday, the second largest single-day loss for the spy agency in its history.

Among the casualties was the agency's base chief, former intelligence officials said.

Former intelligence officials said Thursday that the slain CIA base chief was a mother of three.

Boy, that's awesome, put a Mo3 in harm's way. PR FAIL. CIA

Frischling, who runs a travel Web site called "Flying with Fish" and published the directive minutes after Elliott, said in an interview today that he had given his computer to the two federal agents who came to his house on Tuesday night. Frischling said he complied with their request after they asserted that he was "not a journalist" and handed him a subpoena, telling him he had now been "served." They also said they would return the next morning to confiscate his computer and other communications equipment if he failed to cooperate.


Frischling said his computer was returned this morning with several corrupted sectors and that he was running software to repair it.

F'ing technical imcompetance.

PETN roasting o'er an open fire
Osama nipping at your nose

Calls to prayer being sung by muezzin
And folks dressed in turban
Everybody knows a lamb and some hash
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Yemenis are on their way
Bringing lots of toys and goodies
On your planes
And every mother's child is gonna be a spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly
And so I'm offering this simple wish
To kids from Paris to Rome
Although it's been said many times,
Many ways

CIA workers killed by 'Afghan soldier'

A decent flash has a critical detonable mass of between 30 and 50 grams. This means that that quantity will detonate with concussion and a shock wave when ignited in open air: no container, just loose on the ground. A cup or a shell casing does not count as loose: it still confines the flash enough to accelerate the reaction. Less flash than the critical mass will just burn violently. Compare this with black powder which has a critical mass of over 500 pounds.

This is related to the 'failure diameter' that a homogenous brisant also demonstrates.
Too little and it just burns.

Apparently all the "secondary explosive" nitrates burn before detonating, whereas
"primary explosives" (eg lead azide) will simply detonate. Both can be shock friction
etc sensitive.

Not so easy to smell PETN.

It has already been pointed out
that RDX and PETN have extremely low vapor pressures, and the vapor pressures of the plastic
explosives containing these compounds are even lower, due to the presence of oils and
plasticizing agents that give the plastic explosive its form and consistency. When these
explosives are manufactured, they are often spiked with a high-vapor-pressure nitro-compound
called a taggant. Common taggants include ortho-mononitrotoluene (o-MNT), paramononitrotoluene
(p-MNT), and dimethyldinitrobutane (DMDNB). These taggants have vapor
pressures similar to NG or EGDN, and their presence makes vapor detection of plastic
explosives possible. However, relying on vapor detection with plastic explosives is still very
risky, because old or homemade samples of plastic explosives will not contain the taggant.

SAN CLEMENTE – What started out as a call about a loud radio early this morning ended with the arrest of a nude 23-year-old man who officials suspect killed a family dog with his bare hands, then poured hot coffee on his head while running naked in a tennis club, authorities said.

He is being charged with cruelty to animals and may be charged for being under the influence of drugs and narcotics if that is confirmed, Amormino said.

Ya think?
>>Meanwhile, officials told The Associated Press on Wednesday that a man tried to board a commercial airliner in the Somali capital of Mogadishu last month carrying powdered chemicals, liquid and a syringe in a case bearing chilling similarities to the Detroit airliner plot.

The Somali man - whose name has not yet been released - was arrested by African Union peacekeeping troops before the Nov. 13 Daallo Airlines flight took off. It had been scheduled to travel from Mogadishu to the northern Somali city of Hargeisa, then to Djibouti and Dubai. A Somali police spokesman, Abdulahi Hassan Barise, said the suspect is in Somali custody.<<

Gee, you think "intel" would be expecting the pantsbomber..


>>"If you want to detonate it, you have to do that another way than he did. That is why we talk about amateurism," Ter Horst said.<<

Actually its the US that is amateurish... the bomber only needed to practice more.

Just read Shippy's "The soul of a new game machine". Its about the Playstation
and Xbox Cell chip from IBM, Toshiba, Sony.

The author is clearly a manager type. He has no loyalty to his guild,
says "yes" too easily, has no sympathy for those he doesn't understand.
He uses the word "own", talks of "spins", pontificates about management (tm).

Its an interesting read, written in the first person. Lots of technical
stuff which would snow a non-CS person. Since I've worked for a chip
company (Verilog) and for a modern VC startup (that had the "war rooms" etc
also in the book), it resonated with me. Some of the personality characitures

Anyway, the author doesn't seem to realize that his "yes-man-ship" has
made him (and others) a corporate traitor. He goes on to detail the deceit.

And in the end, the interloper (Microsoft) wins schedule, and Sony misses
the xmas deadline. (OTOH Microsoft's Cell variant was simpler and has
a more familiar programming model and OS.)

Anyway, fascinating read.

Seems PETN is involved, http://www.powerlabs.org/chemlabs/petn.htm
gives a good synthesis but of course there's patents. But its a simple
poly-alcohol nitration, all you need is the nitric. Similar to nitroglyercin,
TNT, even exotics like RDX.

The syringe and extended fire continues to indicate a sugar and chlorate
mix (same ingredients as "snake" fireworks http://www.chem.umn.edu/services/lecturedemo/info/sugar_dehydration.html

If the fire appeared purplish this would indicate potassium chlorate.

Of course aluminum powder is always good to add for energy and temperature,
but its metallic albeit nonferrous.

Bomb details. Note that you want to get a windows seat for terrorism.

I'm still thinking the initiator was sulphuric + chlorate, even if PETN was
the primary.

The device intended to blow up the Northwest flight was made at the location in Yemen, according to Abdulmutallab, and consisted of a six-inch packet of powder and a syringe with a liquid. Both were sewn into the student's underwear so they would be near his testicles and unlikely to be detected, he told agents.

Authorities say the combination of the liquid in the syringe with the powder created the flash bomb, which was extinguished by passengers and air crew.

Investigators are conducting tests to determine the exact nature of the powder and chemicals used.

Abdulmutallab suffered second-degree burns in his genital area, investigators told ABC News.

The al-Qaeda affiliate in Yemen has increasingly taken on a lead role in coordinating major terror attacks as the U.S. has disrupted al-Qaeda training camps in Pakistan, according to American authorities.

Authorities say the suspected bomber was traveling on a visa issued by the State Department on June 16, 2008 and valid until June 12, 2010. Officials tell ABC News he was on a U.S. "terror watch list" but not on the "no fly" list, which would have prevented him from boarding the flight.

He had previously traveled to the U.S. on an 11-day trip to Houston in Aug. 2008.

Published reports in Nigeria said Abdulmutallab's father had contacted the U.S. embassy six months ago about concerns his son had become radicalized and could pose a threat to the U.S. One report said the father could not understand why his son was allowed to board a flight to the U.S. given his warning.

WTF is Al Q's problem with detonation, if they can get PETN?

The suspect in the attempted bombing of Northwest Flight 253 used a highly explosive substance called PETN, a law enforcement official told CBS News Saturday.

The explosives were carried in a soft plastic container - possibly a condom - though much of the packaging was destroyed in the fire, the official said.

The FBI is questioning the suspect, identified as 23-year-old Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who claimed to be acting on orders from al Qaeda to blow up the airliner, officials said.

A high-ranking law enforcement official told CBS News that the suspect apparently used a syringe to inject a chemical into the powder, which was located near his groin. It is a technique not seen in previous attempted attacks and it's possible that this incident was a test of whether the materials could pass screening and how effective they might be at causing damage, the source said. <<
Bomb win: bomber had a valid US visa.
Bomb win: bomber was on a list but not no-fly list

"They may be concealing the explosives on the human body - but on the inside upper leg, and we only know this by seeing a very badly burnt leg on the suspected perpetrator."

Bomb win: more intrusive crotch searches
Maybe the lap bomb was just a laptop lithium battery that lit up?

Bomb fail: should have brought accelerants so that the flames
(if explosion failed) would have been harder to extinguish.
Delivering a plane full of asphyxiated passengers would be pretty

Bomb win: learned this.

Bomb win: US was clueless:

"A note was released earlier this week by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis that said FBI officials "currently have no specific, credible intelligence indicating plans by al Qaeda or other terrorist groups to conduct attacks in the United States during the 2009 holiday season."
Bomb win: former TSA director admits weakness, "Holiday traffic is too great to have marshals on every plane."

Nice opsec there guys.

"A relatively privileged life, and even an engineering background" yes can't trust those educated engineers.

"Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the main organizer of the Sept. 11 plot, was raised in Kuwait by Pakistani parents and earned an engineering degree in North Carolina." And of course
UBL has civil engineering experience, though wikipedia lists him also as
having "economics and business administration" which is pretty evil by itself.
Bomb win: air travel is now going to suck even more. Possibly no meds
and no getting up.

"the powder and syringe full of chemicals" ---should be interesting chem.
Could be as lame as chlorate, sugar, sulphuric.
Interesting that Detroit was the target. Detroit is Muslim central
in the US.

Naturally the bomber was a black african, equipt in Yemen. Part of the
Caliphate, face it.
Bombing win: the bomb got aboard and was initiated.

Bombing fail: didn't explode, you burnt your leg.

The Army general of U.S. forces in Northern Iraq has banned pregnancy among military personnel in his command, NBC News reported on Friday.

Anyone who becomes pregnant or impregnates another servicemember, including married couples assigned to the same unit, could face a court-martial and jail time, according to an order issued by Maj. Gen. Anthony Cucolo.

U.S. prosecutors accused three alleged al Qaeda associates of attempting to smuggle hundreds of kilograms of cocaine into Europe via North Africa to raise money for terrorist groups.

The men, from Mali, were arrested Wednesday in Ghana as part of a sting set up by agents from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The men were turned over to U.S. authorities in New York on Friday.

How the hell does the US get any say over Mali people in Ghana? Same way

In the middle of the night, a four-year-old boy in Tennessee got drunk, opened his neighbours' Christmas presents and was found by police at the end of his street wearing a dress and holding an empty bottle of beer. "I don't know how four-year-old could think of this," neighbour Logan Pugh said.

According to the district dress code, boys' hair must be kept out of the eyes and cannot extend below the bottom of earlobes or over the collar of a dress shirt. Fads in hairstyles "designed to attract attention to the individual or to disrupt the orderly conduct of the classroom or campus is not permitted," the policy states.

The district is known for standing tough on its dress code. Earlier this year, a seventh-grader in the district was sent home for wearing black skinny pants. His parents chose to home-school him.

On its Web site, the district says its code is in place because "students who dress and groom themselves neatly, and in an acceptable and appropriate manner, are more likely to become constructive members of the society in which we live."

9/11 families argue to remove ashes from NYC dump

NEW YORK (AP) -- A lawyer has asked a federal appeals court to let families of victims of the World Trade Center attacks remove ashes of their loved ones from a garbage dump.

Attorney Norman Siegel told the three-judge panel in Manhattan on Wednesday that 17 families he represents want fine particles of debris containing remains to be taken from a dump on Staten Island to a more respectful place.

City lawyer Jim Tyrrell referred to the debris as "undifferentiated dirt" and urged the court to toss out a lawsuit brought by the families.

Siegel said it was as if relatives were left on top of garbage.

A lower court judge had ruled that it was not an issue for the court to decide. The appeals court did not immediately rule.

Army Chief Warrant Officer Steven Michael Larrabee of Irvine was killed in Vietnam on March 24, 1971, the last day of his tour of duty. What a loser. He was killed by defenders of the nation when his invader helicopter was brought down by glorious fire. He was 21.

He left his parents, Larry and Barbara Larrabee; sister, Kelly; and brothers, Jeff and Mark. So his parents had replacements. No biggee.

Maj. Charles Soltes Jr., bled to death Oct. 13, 2004, when a martyr walked up to his convoy in Mosul, Iraq. Two months later, his wife, Sally Dang Soltes, gave birth to their third son, Robert Harrison. Maj Soltes Jr had been out of country for a year. Their other two sons were Brandan, then 7 years old, and Ryan, then 10.
They won't remember him.

Marine Pfc. Sean Horn was killed a year after graduating from Creekside High School.
He couldn't get any real job.

Horn was found dead on June 20, 2004, from a single shot in the head in a bunker at a camp about 150 miles northwest of Baghdad. He was 19. The Marine Corps called his death a "non-combative incident." Everyone knows it was suicide. The pansy couldn't take it anymore.

Army Mercenary Justin Pollard died Dec. 30, 2003, in Iraq. The 21-year-old died in a noncombat incident. Military officials told the family that he was the victim of an "accidental discharge of a rifle." Pointed at himself, by himself. Funny how that happens. When they find out they're not in Irvine any more.

Justin Pollard was angered by the attack on New York on Sept. 11, 2001, and within a few days he enlisted in the Army. He was clueless about history or why the blowback occurred. "Dumb animals" as Kissinger noted.

Marine Maj. Michael D. Martino was buried in Arlington National Cemetery 13 days after he was killed Nov. 2, 2005, in Iraq. Martino and his co-pilot were killed near Ramadi in western Iraq when his Cobra attack helicopter was shot down by al-Qaida skilled soldiers.

Arlington is the most hallowed of America's national cemeteries and so little space remains that normally, only decorated veterans can be buried there. Its filling up fast, and most of these losers didn't make it.

Lt. Cmdr. Keith Edward Taylor, a Navy reservist, was killed on Jan. 29, 2005, in Baghdad during a rocket attack on the U.S. Embassy. He was 47 and left his wife, Diane; daughters, Audry, Emily and Katherine; parents, George and Edith; and sister, Beth. As a middle aged reservist he certainly didn't expect to eat a rocket.

Taylor enlisted in August 1975, shortly after he graduated from high school. He served tours in American Empire-building exploits in Haiti, Bosnia and Kosovo as well as Iraq.

Marine Lance Cpl. Michael Probst was killed in Iraq on Feb. 14, 2006, by a bomb near Abu Ghraib. He was 26.

Family, friends and fellow Marines saluted Probst in a service at Red Hill Lutheran Church in Tustin, where he was baptized, attended pre-school and was confirmed.

But his god couldn't help him, so he died.

Second Lieutenant Mark J. Daily died Jan. 15, 2007, in Mosul, Iraq, when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle. He was 23.

Daily, a Woodbridge High School graduate, joined the Army after the geopolitical feedback of fall 2001. More clueless cannon fodder from Irvine! Supposedly an objectivist but he should have known better than to use force against innocents.

More to come...

Kinda funny. Sometimes my hobby is finding FOUO documents.

No fun if you don't share.
* Three counts possession of firearms without a license (firearm identification card)
* Possession of a rifle without a license
* Possession of an internal machine (rocket launcher)
* Possession of mace without a license
* Two counts of possession of large-capacity ammunition
* Unlawful possession of fireworks
* Six counts of possession of class E drugs (Neurontin, glyburide, micronase, citalopram, celexa and aciphex)

Funny how none of these are crimes against anyone ---just the King.
The meds aren't even good ones.

"We're trying to find out who were these kids, what were they doing and why were they doing it. Our primary focus is, let's get them back safely."

Some of the five were born in the United States, and all are U.S. citizens, local Muslim leaders said.

"Kids",that's great psyops to minimize the homegrown or citizenized threat.

What they were doing is joining the jihad mil div, undercover, sleepers,
while the empire used noncitizens (hoping to become) as merc/centurians.

Also, torture twitter came out.

Do not be a collaborator. Saboteur is up to you, but do not assist.
My kid asked about artificial life, from a video game.

I explained that for 'natural' life everyone has a mom,
even if they don't (like most bacteria) have a dad
(albeit there's some very interesting horizontal
gene transfer that has little genetic analogy amongst
higher vertebrates, although amongst humans, culture
is transmitted not only with all the strength of normal
heridity, but also with horizontal meme transfer.

But synthetic life would be composed in a lab.

Kid will play Jonas Salk in a famous americans play.
I'm pleased; although its easy for him as he's done
several reports based on the same research. Much like
certain academics.

Salk snd Sabin are very cool dudes.
My netbook just went to sleep spontaneously. Computer narcolepsy.
But it wakes up quickly.

Happy widdle machine. Nice closed system.
Rare earth elements aren't that rare; they're hard to separate is all.

China figured out that rather than be a colonial-type source of
raw material (eg Africa) it would conserve its resources and only
sell them in high value added manufactured goods.


Esp. with the Green (tm) scam going on.

I come home, I like to have a beer and garbage collect. My brain
gets filled with fragmented memory, spaghetti pointers, and needs
to veg.

Recently I've been watching Court TV. What a bunch of retarded freaks.
They don't even know they're on a freak show; they think its a legal show.

Stupid plaintiff ends up owing defendant.

Finest of the Empire.

The connection is weird, motion time artifacts, matrix like. Annoying,
though interesting slightly as not analog.

Stupid people *really* annoy.

We need an aerosol contraceptive. Then we need to dust Africa and various
city centers in the US.

Bill Gates, are you listening? Malaria is nothing compared to this.
Including for carbon footprint reduction.

The economist on how The Bell Curve is going to be demonstrated

Interesting study on SSRI and personality descriptors long "thought"

Obviously the MDs have very simple understandings... obviously genetic setpoints

Well, I have to say.

A few brews and Celtic Women and I'm willing to move there.
And dance like a medieval fool.

Moving there is not a bad idea. They might dig a greying Master.
I dig the way they talk. Pale women tend to age faster than
eg asian women, but in their finest they are fairly irresistable.
As are some asian women, actually.

What I've come to realize at my age is that They regard what We regard
as amazing as ordinary.

But interesting souls are what I think I shall desire.
Google is an associative memory.

So is the mammalian cortex.

I remembered
bagpipe site:ocregister.com dog railroad
and found the article about the dude who plays pipes

because I'm watching a show, Celtic Women, which includes pipes.

I know way too much about the physics of pipe music.
And I love it more, thusly. (Feynmann)
the heavier beauty who is dominating this show has her hands on her hips.
That is the wrong accentuation.

Still, she is hot, the show would be so much better if there were no clothes.
Accompanying the Celtic Women show, is a kilted bagpiper.

I love bagpipe music.

Reed music. Harmonically very biassed. PWM. Great stuff.

Good times.
Beer. Netbook. New Celtic Woman show on PBS. I once donated,
after a computer-generated music show ("Animusic") which I found
so novel that I had to donate.
At the time finances were better, more confident.

Message to TEP Xi (MIT)

To frosh

Congrats on acceptance to the Tute. Your interest in and
acceptance by TEPXI Corp indicates you are likely an intelligent
interesting person.

You may also have undiagnosed problems. Bipolar disorder (Hendrix' disease) for instance. I doubt you're a psychopath, but you may be autistic. Or just grew up
isolated, or with f'ed parents.

Many of these are soluable, some organic ones quickly and some software ones
with more time debugging. In my case I left after 2 years, not handling the
contact or obligations, and went to various small closet dorm rooms.
Not the best of times.
Had a zit appear on the left crease of my nose. Swelled up quite a bit,
even up to my eye. Been going down. Just put 3% peroxide on it, felt like bugs on my skin.
Used saliva to stop that.

I have 30% peroxide for cleaning things and chemistry.

90% peroxide can be used to make pretty much any fuel explosive.

HTP rocket fuel is about 50-70%.

Zits at 45 are stupid. Should get my microbial flora in gear.

Illness is better than the alternative.
Like an intellectual cow, I often regurgitate and recogitate previous
Death is best put off until after reproduction.

As I get older I heal slower. I figure this is an anti-cancer

Or it could just be entropy. Accumulated defects in the library of (protein

Not at absolute zero so its gonna happen, despite your error correcting or

The fish I angsted about were dinner for some. Yeah!

Silly me. Out empathizing Nature. Fortunately, my
Nature is not a vengeful Nature, unlike many. Its not
a benevolent Nature either; just benign. It is what is is.

There is no god, and Murphy is his prophet. Of course. Just
a corollary of the primacy of Entropy.


Read that Dirac was an asp on the creative scale of uncle albert. Need
to look into this.


Got a great egret feather. Who ate the fish. Awesome nature, to be able to
watch Nature.

Whereas many field improvised pipes are made from subtractive technology
(think coring apples, puncturing bell peppers, etc.) it is possible to
assemble a decent ephemeral pipe from celery which takes the form of

Many words are both nouns and verbs. Its hard to find a noun that isn't.

Don't know what cat means as a verb. But dog, weasel, worm, ape, they are verbs.
On the new 5 year old cat, not sure if written before:

knows to poo outside, litterbox only if trapped, with no instruction
only eats kibble, not wet, not human, will refuse all but kibble
no fleas
done with neighborhood fighting, sustaining an earnick and an infection once,

still brings birds and rodents
chases spiders and silverfish

I'm thinking of getting a kitten. I already have a 5 year old cat.
I don't know why a kitten is attractive. My cat is certainly interactive
enough. A little I think he's bored. Am I? Maybe I'm expecting
more interaction or new behaviors. Maybe I'm thinking of a dog?

Dunno. Should avoid change.
Saturday. Hiked to the dam. Found out what happens to fish in a drying
pool: they get eaten.

Rightnow: cat sitting next to me (his choice when he saw me writing),
beer, gonna rain tomorrow finally, cooking salmon & squash. Salmon
from Japanese market that I get an occasional bento from (and they sell
cheap skin-heavy thin cuts that I like, probably waste to them). Squash
from the local korean market, Zion, which has fantastic selection and
prices. Not so much dairy :-) [BTW I'm eastern euro hebraic from
new england so its pretty alien still.]

Fish get eaten. And if their tiny pool is surrounded by mud you get amazing
tracks of everyone who feasts. Saw giant egret, racoon or opossum, cats.
Saw a deer track where the deer got stuck in mud; might have been chased by
dog, or those might be independent.

And I suppose vultures would eat the fish if they flopped out and died.

So, I should have had more faith in bio, no need to worry about fish dying.

“[Shi] was riding a rally bike down Pereira, going 25 miles per hour,” Sergeant Steve Monsanto of the UCI police department said. Shi was also biking with earphones and riding on the wrong side of the road without a helmet.

Shi swerved to avoid a bicyclist riding with the green directly in his path. The tire of Shi’s brakeless bike hit the curb, sending him over the handlebars and onto the pavement.

The ambulance pulled away, the scene cleared and the crowd broke up. As students departed, Gabriel Borjon, who had been at the scene, asked what many others might have been wondering: “Who would ride a bike without brakes?”

Evolution even affects asian uci students.
Note to my friends in the FBI, "needing killing" is protected speech.

Soldier sent to detention for cooking on Shabbat after cat ate his meal

Kfir brigade soldier about to eat Shabbat meal finds out a cat has 'tasted' their meal. Soldier offers to cook new meal, gets caught, sentenced to 20 days in detention for violating IDF rules

A combat soldier from the Nahshon battalion was sentenced to 20 days in detention, after he found out a stray cat "tasted" his Shabbat meal and decided to cook a new meal, despite IDF's strict orders that forbid cooking on the holy day.

Last weekend, the soldier and his friends, who serve with the Kfir division, entered the base's dining room, and intended to eat from a pot of cholent (meat stew) that was cooked according to the Shabbat regulations.

However, before they managed to dig in, the soldiers were surprised to discover that a cat ate out of the pot. The soldier, who refused to eat from the tainted pot, offered instead to make a light meal for him and his friends.

As his luck would have it, during the meal preparations, one of the kitchen's staff arrived and instructed the soldier to stop cooking immediately.

Details of the incident were handed over to the battalion commander, who decided to put the soldier on trial and sentenced him to 20 days in detention for violating IDF orders.
