For years, U.S. government agencies have told the public, veterans and Congress that they couldn’t draw any connections between the so-called “burn pits” disposing of trash at the military’s biggest bases and veterans’ respiratory or cardiopulmonary problems. But a 2011 Army memo obtained by Danger Room flat-out stated that the burn pit at one of Afghanistan’s largest bases poses “long-term adverse health conditions” to troops breathing the air there.
And I just love the faux-historicism – Long’s reactionary oath to use the language “as God and Noah Webster intended.” I have found the resort to tradition is often the last refuge of the deeply prejudiced.

On Wednesday, the Democratic National Committee was alerted by Lookout, a mobile security firm, about an apparent phishing campaign. Someone had created fake site that looked just like VoteBuilder, a DNC-managed database that contains years’ worth of voter information. Were an unsuspecting DNC employee to give the fake site their username and password, a malicious actor could potentially steal sensitive data.

Unlike other mass-mailing worms, Mydoom does not attempt to trick victims by promising nude pictures of celebrities or mimicking personal notes. Instead, one of its messages reads: “The message contains Unicode characters and has been sent as a binary attachment.”
Julian Oliver has for years harbored a strange obsession with spotting poorly disguised cellphone towers, those massive roadside antennae draped in fake palm fronds to impersonate a tree, or even hidden as spoofed lamp posts and flag poles. The incognito base stations gave him another, more mischievous idea. What about a far better-disguised cell tower that could sit anonymously in an office, invisibly hijacking cellphone conversations and texts?
