...Nigeria: a centrepiece of US security policy
Although Boko Haram’s abduction of the schoolgirls has thrust the violence in Nigeria onto the world diplomatic stage, the crisis has been high on Washington's African agenda for several years. But even before that, the most populous country in Africa was a centrepiece of US security policy as the continent’s largest oil producer. When the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta's (MEND) armed rebellion targeted oil facilities in the Niger Delta in the 2000s, the US provided counter-insurgency training, intelligence assistance and gave former Coast Guard cutters to the Nigerian navy.

Photograph: Pius Utomi Ekpei/AFP/Getty That rebellion led some American officials to conclude Nigerian governments were inherently unstable because of the country’s economic and religious divisions. In 2008, the US Army War College in Pennsylvania carried out a war game in which the Nigerian government is on the brink of collapse and the US intervenes to protect the oil supply...

An earlier version of this article quoted incorrectly from a comment by President Obama about the flawed rollout of his healthcare website. As video screens on either side of him showed the title of the hit Disney film “Frozen,” Mr.“Obama said of his staff “On the plus side, they did turn the launch of HealthCare.gov into one of the year’s biggest movies,” not “they did not turn the launch of HealthCare.gov into one of the year’s biggest movies.” http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/04/us/politics/obama-white-house-correspo...

...We have fought for freedom in the theater of war and expanded its reach during times of peace. We have held fast to the principles at our country's core: service and citizenship; courage and the common good; liberty, equality, and justice for all. This is our Nation's heritage, and it is what we remember on Loyalty Day.
Therefore I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2013, as Loyalty Day.

Chechen refugee in NH questioned in bombing inquiry
https://www.nytimes.com/ 2013/ 05/ 17/ us/ boston-bombing-developments.html
FBI agents investigating the Boston Marathon bombing have repeatedly questioned Musa Khadzhimuratov, a Chechen refugee and former separatist fighter who says he had a passing social relationship with one of the two bombing suspects. They searched his family's small apartment here Tuesday, scouring his computers, subjecting him to a polygraph, and taking a DNA sample.
The hours of FBI questioning in more than a dozen meetings — described by Khadzhimuratov and his wife, Madina, in an interview — illustrate the bureau's intensive effort to identify possible accomplices and test its theory that the suspects, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, were radicalized and trained on the Web and acted on their own.

Heartbleed is about to get worse, and will slow the Internet to a crawl
4/14/14 http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/04/14/heartbleed-...
Last Friday, CloudFlare web service issued an open challenge to hackers to see if Heartbleed could be used to do something really dangerous — steal the security certificates that prove Google, for instance, is really Google....what was thought to be impossible turns out to be doable... Changing passwords will not protect you if you unwittingly give them to a hacker pretending to be your ISP mail provider...many Web sites raced to update their systems... fixes plugged the immediate hole... But in light of this latest discovery, many sites still appear to be vulnerable; attackers may have used Heartbleed to steal sites' valid security keys before it patched its systems...The next step, experts say, is for all 500,000 affected sites — from mom-and-pop to big conglomerates — to revoke their security certificates and issue new ones. But as necessary as that process is, it could have dramatic consequences for Web users’ everyday experiences....the good news is that many of the most critical Web sites — banks and government — were not vulnerable to Heartbleed in the first place, so they will not have to reissue their certificates

Encryption 'heartbleed' bug leaves two thirds of web traffic exposed
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2599896/Security-alert-we...
The vulnerability was found by Google researchers in the OpenSSL cryptographic library believed to be used by roughly two-thirds of all websites on the Internet and is part of the most common server software in use...The flaw was introduced in OpenSSL in December 2011, and was been 'in the wild' until yesterday, when a new version fixing the flaw was released....
The problem was uncovered by a team of researchers from Google Security and ***Codenomicon. Research by analytics firm Netcraft says almost 500,000 websites could be affected.
'The serious overrun vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic library affects around 17% of SSL web servers,' it says.Its research found Twitter, GitHub, Yahoo, Tumblr, Steam, Flickr, HypoVereinsbank, PostFinance, Regents Bank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, and the anonymous search engine DuckDuckGo are all affected....
The vulnerability was dubbed the Heartbleed Bug because it was discovered 'in the OpenSSL's implementation of the TLS/DTLS (transport layer security protocols) heartbeat extension (RFC6520),' the team said.'This bug has left large amount of private keys and other secrets exposed to the Internet. Considering the long exposure, ease of exploitation and attacks leaving no trace this exposure should be taken seriously.'

Specialists say this would not be another Cold War, which was a global contest of ideology pitting capitalism versus communism...Putin positions himself as leader of anti-American sentiment, but it is rooted in Russian nationalism rather than Marxist philosophy, and his main focus is on his own neighborhood...“It won’t be exactly like the Cold War because it won’t be a struggle for control of the world...”..Andrew C.

3/18 Flight Plan & Malaysian Opposition: Target China, p.2

digest:
The actual 370 flight plan is revealed below, in context. It's also a basic primer on US 'smart power' operations in the world war that was greenlighted by 911 to "collaboratively" restructure the US dominated post-WW2 'new world order' it can no longer rule solo. Now Obama coundelor, Zbigniew Brzezinski geostrategically theorized an analogue (see his Strategic Vision) to his earlier guides for 'total tyranny' global domination (see previous digest issue).
Future digest issues will explore forces, rival-capitalist blocs led by China & Russia, heroic anti-imperialist occupation fighters and revolutionary groups - all referred in "if you aren't with us, you're with the terrorist". P.S. the website search function will get you - and any you share it with - over 10 years of critical information so urgently needed.

MH370 picture exclusive: Pilot wears anti-government slogan t-shirt amid fears he hijacked missing jet

The pilot, Capt Zaharie, father-of-three, was a fervent supporter of Anwar Ibrahim - jailed for homosexuality hours before the Malaysia Airways jet disappeared. The pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet is pictured in a T-shirt with "Democracy is Dead" slogan as fears emerge he could have hijacked the plane as an anti-government protest....On Twitter and YouTube he backed human rights groups and campaigners for internet freedom in Malaysia... The slogan on his T-shirt, as he poses with his pal Peter, is dated May 5, 2013 - the date of the country's elections which led to violent protests against alleged poll fraud. Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim called activists on to the streets and Capt Zaharie "liked" YouTube videos posted by Ibrahim....

3/15/14 What's Behind US Maneuvers Against Russia & China?

Rise & Fall of history's deadliest 'new world order' dictatorship:
One glaring sign of US weakness and desperation is the hysterical, changing-minute-by-minute, 360 degree lies, projecting US-sponsored terror onto its recipients. Desperation apparently makes them seriously overate the success of their information war control and mass dumbification, or they missed the recent Gallup-Pew poll showing the majority of the world considers the US the greatest threat to world peace, severely misreading the 'balance of forces' - or believing their own 'public diplomacy/strategic communications?

China & Russia, 'not permitted' capitalist rivals, are at the critical center of the rise & fall of finance capital's world destruction to save its political-economic system's world rule.

More will follow, on the current situation, major players and contradictions. Also some instructive geostrategic analyses little or not at all publicized.
