This is an American kid, the cousin of the teenager who was tortured and killed by Israelis last week. Now the State Department is involved and I don’t think they’ll get away with it this time. They’re still trying (they are “investigating” and will no doubt try to save face by pinning something on this […]

Of course not! This is just…. caution. I was talking to a high-end geek friend some months ago after the Snowden stories came out, and he told me bluntly: “If you use Tor or anything like that, you will bring yourself to the NSA’s attention.” And of course, he was right! The NSA marks and […]

This is one of the more uplifting things I’ve heard in a while. Will the judge listen?

I’m always so surprised when someone comes out and says it. Now wait for the character assassination any minute now: (Reuters) – A U.N. human rights investigator accused Israel on Friday of “ethnic cleansing” in pushing Palestinians out of East Jerusalem and cast doubt that the Israeli government could accept a Palestinian state in the […]

And to be practical, they always could. We’re all grownups here, right? We all know that cops lie about probable cause to search, and now the famously corrupt PA State Supreme Court has given them its blessing. Seamus fucking McCaffery wrote the opinion?

Makes me proud to be an American! In February 2012 Shinwari, who has lived in the US since he was 14, flew to Afghanistan to get married. He says that before he could get home to Omaha, Nebraska, he was twice detained and questioned by FBI agents who wanted to know if he knew anything […]
