I get the feeling we’re about to be sucked into yet another war: A flyer distributed in the eastern Ukrainian city Donestk is telling the city’s Jewish community that they need to “register” with the separatist government, but the head of the self-appointed new leadership in the region has denied involvement. In a set of […]

And Henry Kissinger couldn’t keep his hands out of it: Only a few months ago, Henry Kissinger was dancing with Stephen Colbert in a funny bit on the latter’s Comedy Central show. But for years, the former secretary of state has sidestepped judgment for his complicity in horrific human rights abuses abroad, and a new memo has […]

They are never, ever, EVER going to get rid of the data. Ever. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is trying to figure out what the LAPD is doing with the mountains (and mountains) of license-plate data that they’re harvesting in the city’s streets without a warrant or judicial oversight.

I’ve seen things that lead me to suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the Boston Bomber, was actually an FBI operative.
