UAE rules set off BlackBerry storm. Planning to take your faithful BlackBerry along on a trip to the United Arab Emirates?
Think again. The showdown between the Middle Eastern nation and the makers of the popular electronic devices escalated Monday, with Research in Motion (RIM) assuring its customers that it would not alter its security methods, while the United Arab Emirates said its BlackBerry ban, though it won’t cover phone calls, also will apply to Americans and other foreign visitors. The State Department on Monday said the impending ban sets a “dangerous precedent,” a statement that prompted a volley back from the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Washington.
The dispute started Sunday, when the United Arab Emirates government announced that it would block RIM’s service to the half-million local users, citing the company’s repeated failure to comply with national security rules. Cell Phone Stalking. According to the Wall St.
Journal, “more than 25,000 adults in the U.S. are victims of GPS stalking annually, including by cellphone.” The article notes that a cell phone account holder can track everyone on the account. Freedom Watch July 31st, 2010 - Part 1 of 5. Update: Ex-Hacker Denies Alleged WikiLeaker Gave Him Classified Documents | Threat Level. An Army intelligence analyst who is charged with leaking classified documents to the secret-spilling site WikiLeaks also allegedly sent classified documents to the hacker who turned him in to the feds, according to a friend and associate of the hacker who helped connect him with federal agents.
Note: Adrian Lamo has now denied this. See the update at the bottom of this post. Chet Uber, director of Project Vigilant, the volunteer, non-profit arm of a corporate security firm, was one of the first people former hacker Adrian Lamo called after Army private Bradley Manning contacted him and disclosed that he had leaked classified documents and videos to WikiLeaks. If Uber’s claims about the documents are true, this would be the first indication that Manning had sent Lamo classified documents.

Obama Signs Law Authorizing Suppression of Torture Photos « The Washington Independent. Pentagon bars staff from visiting WikiLeaks. The U.S. armed services are issuing internal messages to all personnel barring them from visiting the WikiLeaks website, which recently posted 77,000 classified diplomatic and military messages on the long war in Afghanistan.
Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman confirmed Thursday for The Washington Times that all four services “have put out such messages” after The Times had obtained copies of Navy and Marine Corps messages banning troops from accessing WikiLeaks. Mr. Whitman later told The Times that the Army and Air Force had not yet issued such statements. The orders seem to be the most far-reaching effort by the Pentagon in its ongoing effort to stop the release of classified information.
The military is telling the troops they cannot even view what is publicly available, even though the WikiLeaks documents are on hundreds of websites.

Technology Review: Technology Lessons from the Wikileaks Saga. There’s already debate about whether Wikileaks’s release of 92,000 classified documents on the war in Afghanistan was more of a milestone in the annals of national security and the press than the 1971 leak of the Pentagon Papers, the U.S. government’s classified report on the Vietnam War.
It’s clear enough, though, that today’s technological landscape severely limits the government’s range of options to fight back against such leaks, but also provides a range of tools to protect against future ones. Confronted with the release of classified documents on the Wikileaks website–followed by nearly as many news reports on the phenomenon–the U.S. government’s reaction was calculatedly mild.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today said the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) court challenge to the regulation restricting their ability to contest the Obama Administration’s authorization of a ‘Kill or Capture’ policy against Anwar Al-Awlaki should be rejected. Graham further stated that the Treasury Department should reject the ACLU and CCR request for a license to provide legal services to Al-Awlaki’s benefit.

Darryl Campbell's essay for The Millions, "Orwell and the Tea Party," examines the legacy of the increasingly misquoted George Orwell. Campbell is fairly upset that the pamphleteer has been co-opted (with what he sees as insufficient attention to context) by the likes of the Tea Party. If a lot of people are misreading Orwell, Campell wonders, does that mean it's time to stop reading him? Orwell’s works are ephemeral too, in the sense that they cannot really be understood without some semblance of historical and intellectual context. Plugging the Leaks - News & Features. On New Year’s Eve in 2005, a small group of CIA officials had their evening plans cut short by an urgent message from the White House. President Bush’s advisers had learned that James Risen, a reporter at the New York Times, was about to blow the lid on the CIA’s five-year-long plan to derail Iran’s nuclear-weapons program. Risen had devoted a chapter in his new book, State of War, to a covert operation called Merlin, which involved a high-stakes gamble to feed the Iranians blueprints for a nuclear-triggering device.
The blueprints contained a hidden flaw, and the CIA bet that Iranian engineers would waste years trying to build the component to no avail. Technology Review: Dissent Made Safer. “Sokwanele” means “enough is enough” in a certain Bantu dialect. It is also the name of a Zimbabwean pro-democracy website whose bloggers last year published accounts of atrocities by Robert Mugabe’s regime and posted Election Day updates describing voter intimidation and apparent ballot stuffing.
You can visit Sokwanele’s “terror album” and see photographs: of a hospitalized 70-year-old woman who’d been beaten and thrown on her cooking fire (she later died, the site says); of firebombed homes; of people with deep wounds carved into their backs. You can find detailed, frequently updated maps describing regional violence and other incidents. Meer landen overwegen BlackBerry-verbod. Nieuws - In navolging van Saoedi-Arabië en de Arabische Emiraten ligt RIM nu ook in de clinch met Indonesië en Libanon. De BlackBerry-maker zegt echter dat er helemaal geen achterdeurtje in zijn netwerk zit. Eerder deze week gaf Saoedi-Arabië al aan vanaf vandaag geen Blackberry diensten meer te tolereren omdat de overheid van ontwikkelaar RIM geen inzage krijgt in het data- en telefoonverkeer. Indonesië had RIM vorig jaar al verzocht het monitoren van al het data- en telefoonverkeer toe te staan, maar voelt zich genoodzaakt dit verzoek nu met klem te herhalen nu RIM druk vanuit meer hoeken begint te voelen.
