    MOSCOW (AFP) - Forget politics, oligarchs and Chechnya. What Russians really want to ask their leader is when he lost his virginity, when he will legalise marijuana and when a giant fictional octopus sleeping at the bottom of the ocean will awaken. These are at least some of the most popular questions being put by Russian web surfers to President Vladimir Putin on the Yandex website in preparation for a July 6 interactive Internet question-and-answer session. Putin will respond via Internet in his first-ever webcast to some of the questions posted through the BBC Online and Yandex sites, where queries...

    FTW, December 6, 2001 -- On October 9th, FTW broke a story on insider trading connected to the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center that sparked worldwide controversy. In that story we reported how the Israeli Herzliyya Institute for Counterterrorism had documented that unknown individuals -- with accurate foreknowledge of the attacks -- had purchased an obvious and unusually large number of "put" options on United and American Airlines shortly before the attacks. Additional companies hit hard by the insider trading included Axa Re(insurance) and Munich Re as well as American investment giants Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. Put ...

The dead specimen, caught in a trawler's net, was badly damaged but it was clearly a massive animal, National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA)marine biologist Steve O'Shea."It would easily have been four-plus meters in total length and a weight of 70-75 kg (154-165 pounds), if not more -- it's a very big octopus, the size of a fully mature male...

     Toronto police have been investigating dozens of FBI-generated leads following the U.S. arrest of a Parkdale refugee claimant who is alleged to be a lieutenant of Osama bin Laden.  Officers said Nabil Al-Marabh left a huge trail of evidence in Toronto and U.S. police are interested in his ties with the suicide pilots and their accomplices who plowed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Sept. 11.  "There was a lot of activity taking place," one senior Toronto cop said yesterday. "It is unbelievable."  U.S. police said Al-Marabh is among their top five suspects of 1,200 detained ...

    OTTAWA - RCMP officers have travelled across North America to interview former Israeli spies, a convicted drug dealer, financiers and conspiracy theorists, probing claims that foreign agents used rigged software to hack into secret Canadian computer files. The Mounties are tight-lipped about their mysterious investigation, code-named ``Project Abbreviation,'' and will confirm only that they're looking into an alleged breach of national security. But information obtained by The Star indicates that RCMP officers have waded into the mire of a tangled conspiracy theory. ``They have opened a Pandora's box,'' said one player in the intelligence community familiar with the investigation. ...

I had done some research on Jonestown, the CIA mind control facility in Guyana which had come to a spectular end in 1977. Officially, Jonestown was a mass suicide, and when the Mt.

    Pertinent excerpt: Nowadays, [William] Hamilton downplays his former career inside the intelligence community, comparing it to that of a newspaper reporter. "What you do at NSA is analytical work, it's not cloak and dagger. It's desk work, college graduates at desks using computers and writing reports," he says. Whether Hamilton's work was quite that benign is hard to say. There is at least one example of computers playing a more sinister role in the Vietnam War. As a part of Operation Phoenix, the CIA was known to have used the innovative technology to run a covert assassination program against Vietnamese ...

    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian police are investigating whether U.S. and Israeli spies used rigged computer software to hack into Canada's top secret intelligence files, the Toronto Star newspaper said Friday. The paper said the probe revolved around Promis, a software program first developed to assist prosecutors in the United States Department of Justice which was the centre of a U.S. scandal a decade ago. The Star said police were probing whether the software -- used by the Mounties and Canada's spy service to co-ordinate secret investigations -- had been rigged with a so-called "trap door" allowing unauthorized access to sensitive ...

    THE OCTOPUS Through the efforts of Terry Reed and John Cummings, their book *Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA*, has given readers an inside view of the inner workings of the Iran-Contra affair and the resulting Whitewater scandal. By attempting to poke a hole through the heavily cloaked veil of government corruption, Reed and others like him have discovered that a mission of truth-seeking can be inherently dangerous if not fatal. Unfortunately, investigative reporter Danny Casolaro learned that lesson too late. For over a year before his death, Casolaro was running down leads on an operation he termed the "Octopus." ...

Spiegel claims that German security authorities suspect that the US National Security Agency (NSA) has 'back door' access to Microsoft source code, and can therefore easily read the Federal Republic's deepest secrets. The Bundeswehr will no longer use American software (we surmise this includes Larry and Scott as well) on computers used in sensitive areas. The German foreign office ...
