From Secrecy News:

A front-page story in the Washington Post on January 27 included the remarkable statement that "Both the CIA and the JSOC [Joint Special Operations Command of the Department of Defense] maintain lists of individuals... whom they seek to kill or capture. The JSOC list includes three Americans, including [Islamist cleric Anwar al-] Aulaqi, whose name was added late last year. As of several months ago, the CIA list included three U.S. citizens, and an intelligence official said that Aulaqi's name has now been added."

But at least the part about the CIA list turns out to be unfounded."The article referred incorrectly to the presence of U.S. citizens on a CIA list of people the agency seeks to kill or capture," the Washington Post said in a correction published in the February 12 edition. "After The Post's report was published, a source said that a statement the source made about the CIA list was misunderstood. Additional reporting produced no independent confirmation of the original report, and a CIA spokesman said that The Post's account of the list was incorrect. The military's Joint Special Operations Command maintains a target list that includes several Americans. In recent weeks, U.S. officials have said that the government is prepared to kill U.S. citizens who are believed to be involved in terrorist activities that threaten Americans."The correction has been appended to the online version of the article.

I am having a really hard time with Barak Obama. Giving Nuclear to those stupid red necks at Southern Company. What a huge company of rapture evangelicals. Don't believe me? Call them and have them come over and do an energy audit in your home. What you get is their children who look like Mormons from Big Love. This company is so nepotistic. Through its subsidiaries it owns and operates more than 42,000 megawatts of generation capacity and serves 4.3 million customers in Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Mississippi.

They will not build next generation of plants without taxpayers underwriting liability. http://www.smirkingchimp.com/thread/26831

Barack Obama has plunged into the atomic abyss.

Stephen Chu admitted he was unaware of the CBO report when he signed Georgia guarantees.

I am ready to invade the south.

Hello, I´m from portugal and i have being in visit Washington for the first time and the USA as well. My ideia of the american life compariting with europe its that american people have a great history, a story that made me cry. The figth for freedom, for the people, above all things... But now i seen your sociaty a way diferent!
I find nice people, terrifyce people, but i have cry ider wend i seen a homeless fill is cup on macdonalds over and over, for kill is hanger, i lock for the well fee of some residents and the lack of means of mexicans, indians and "Black" people that work every day. Your Food are very pricy especily the vegetables and fruit way in the mean will, bacterys, oil, elestricity, are cheap. I try a lot of time the coffee in StarBucks, one thing that amaze my is that in 10 persons walking on the street 9 have a cup of coffee.
The real problem is this: each cup, plus the cartoon for not burn your finghers, the spoons, etc. are a treamdous atackt to the planet, not to say the oil that are need to produce one coffee.
In My country and across europe, we take coffee in a glass or pottery cup, the spoon is from metal so that coold be wash in machines and used again.
Loock, i m not say that you are evil, i m saying that the COLAPSE are comming and theres only GOD that can take care of us.
But I belive that especily your country will soffer harder, I see a nation that today are not fridley of the commutty.
But of course maybe i just get to know the capitol and doseen´t have the real persepcion of your great country but i feel sorry that for you and all the outher that try to follow you, like mine.
See the AGE OF STUPIDY to realize how the colapse is close...

I wish i was kidding regarding occupation of southern states. But seriously. Lets take a look at the future shall we?

California is leading the world in Green Energy production but still not enough production to go around during the transition. Nuclear plants in Georgia are still under construction. Southern Company and their Mega Churches network a God war, and Chaos ensues. Nuclear proliferation in the south, with Sarah Palin at the helm. I say it is inevitable that the south will be occupied.

This is several months old and may have already been posted here, but I'm relatively new to this blog.

I think it may be a worthy addition to the map, especially with Americans being armed to the teeth, and the rise of the Tea party and related liberty groups.
