    Subprime Scandal: Newly released memos from the Clinton presidential library reveal evidence the government had a big hand in the housing crisis. The worst actors were in the White House, not on Wall Street. During the 1990s, former Clinton aides bragged that more aggressive enforcement of the Community Reinvestment Act pressured banks to issue riskier mortgages, lending more proof the anti-redlining law fueled the crisis. A 2012 National Bureau of Economic Research study found "that adherence to that act led to riskier lending by banks," with "a clear pattern of increased defaults for loans made by these banks in quarters...

    Elian Gonzalez, the object of a 1999-2000 custody squabble involving Washington, Havana and family members on both sides of the Florida Strait, holds a piece of U.S. legislation directly responsible for what he endured then, Cuban official media said Monday. "They were very sad times for me, which marked me for my whole life. I was never given the chance to have a moment to think about my mother, who as a result of that (U.S.) Cuban Adjustment Act died at sea," the now-19-year-old Gonzalez said last weekend during a Union of Young Communists event.

    In a landmark settlement, the Pentagon has agreed to give full back pay to U.S. service members who were discharged due to their sexual orientation under the military's “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. The payouts will be granted to service members dismissed from the military under the now-repealed policy on or after November 2004. “This means so much to those of us who dedicated ourselves to the military, only to be forced out against our will for being who we are,” former Air Force Staff Sgt.

    WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans sharply challenged President Bush's top military general and ambassador in Iraq on Tuesday in a blatant demonstration of misgivings within the GOP about the protracted war. "Are we going to continue to invest blood and treasure at the same rate we're doing now? For what?" asked Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., who supports legislation setting a deadline to bring troops home. The deep-seated doubt expressed at the hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee reflected just how far Congress had come since the war began over four years ago. And Republican senators raised tough questions that rivaled...

Jeremic was quoted by Serbian media as telling NATO secretary-general Jaap de Hoop Schefer in Brussels that the situation in Kosovo was complex and asked the western military alliance, which has a contingent of 17,000 soldiers (Kfor) stationed in Kosovo, “to do everything to protect peace and security of Serbs in Kosovo”. “Regardless of political and...

This mobile missile is quite capable and can reach the US with a variety of weapons packages, including nuclear warheads of Russian design. In early 1997 Russian Atomic energy officials (MINATOM) admitted that an IBM super-computer was purchased from Europe by...

    BELGRADE - Serbia will never give up its sovereignty over the breakaway Kosovo province even to gain membership in the European Union, Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica said Saturday. "The government is united and decisive in its stance that Serbia will never accept extortion over Kosovo for European integration," Kostunica said in an interview with the state-run Tanjug news agency. Kostunica, a fierce opponent of Kosovo's independence, said there has been no "examples in the history of Europe that one state cedes 15 percent of its territory for any kind of concessions of prizes." "If something like that was useful,...
  • BOSNIA: MUSLIM PRESIDENCY MEMBER FOSTERING FUNDAMENTALISM (Al-Qaeda in Bosnia)

    Belgrade, 18 May (AKI) - A prominent Bosnian publicist and author has accused a Muslim member of the country's three-man state presidency, Haris Silajdzic, of fostering radical Islamism and of protecting Islamist terrorists connected with Al-Qaeda. Dzevad Galijasevic, author of a trilogy "Epitaph for Bosnia" and former mayor of central Bosnian town of Maglaj, said in an interview to Belgrade weekly NIN on Friday that Bosnia wasn't just a shelter, "but a base from which terrorists are being sent to western countries."

    SARAJEVO, May 18 (Reuters) - The Bosnian war crimes court indicted on Friday a Muslim wartime police commander of torturing Croat prisoners in a Roman Catholic church in southern Bosnia during the brief Croat-Muslim war in 1993. The court charged Zijad Kurtovic, the ex-commander of the military police platoon of the 4th Corps of the Bosnian Muslim-led army, with war crimes against Croat civilians, prisoners of war and violating the laws and practices of warfare. Bosnian Muslims and Croats entered the 1992-95 war as allies against Bosnian Serbs but then fought their own war in 1993-94, which was ended by...

    President Clinton has waged an information war against America. Data accumulated inside the White House has taken prisoners, destroyed lives and provided valuable bounty for criminals. The war is designed to limit freedoms and control political opponents. Recent examples, such as campaigns against Kathleen Willey and Monica Lewinsky, are lurid tips of the White House iceberg. The most fertile ground for information exploited by Clinton is the data stored inside law enforcement computers such as the FBI. The FBI's NCIC system (National Criminal Information Center) is a network of computers erected by all the states that is tied to a...

(What else can you call them, given their pre-dawn assault on a private home to snatch a child who was not a hostage, at gunpoint?) The entire premise of the Elian drama—that the Miami relatives have kept the boy from his father—is false. Elian was separated from his father not by Lazaro Gonzalez and company, but by Fidel Castro: the world's longest surviving and most sadistic dictator,...

These governments kept a cumulative file (called the dangan in Communist China) on every individual's performance and attitudes from school years through adult employment. Citizens carried an internal passport or "papers" that had to be presented to the authorities for permission to travel within the country, to take up residence in another city, or to apply for a new job.

For several years after the shooting, Kasi remained a fugitive in the border areas straddling Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran. From...

Writer/producer Cyrus Nowrasteh ("Into the West"), director David Cunningham ("To End All Wars"), and the whole production team have done a magnificent job in presenting the complex events leading up to 9/11 with accuracy, fairness, and artistry. The writing, acting, directing, editing, cinematography, and overall story-telling are first-rate. "The Path to 9/11" is fast-paced and thoroughly gripping the entire way. The five-hour miniseries (aired over two nights) is based on the 9/11 Commission report, and...

After years of official claims that his land policies would improve production and guarantee self-sufficiency, he confessed that many of those awarded white-owned farms were doing nothing with their gains. "If farming is not in your blood, switch to what you are good at," Mr Mugabe told supporters in the capital, Harare. "We want those with land to use it. We don't want to keep begging for food."

    Prevarication by the Pakistani government cost America the chance to kill Osama bin Laden in an airstrike near the Afghan border two years ago, the Sunday Telegraph has been told. A CIA lead that the al-Qaeda leader was hiding in a remote province was squandered because the Pakistani government delayed giving permission for the attack on its soil, according to a senior Western diplomat.By the time US officials got the go-ahead, bin Laden had left the suspected hideout in Zhob, in the Baluchistan province of south-west Pakistan.The near-miss was cited by the diplomat as the reason why America chose not...

Most antivirus firms raised their threat assessment of the worm late this week, after initially suggesting it wouldn’t spread much. One firm has already stopped over 100,000 copies of it. Bugbear packs a treacherous payload: it installs a keylogger on infected systems, so it can watch everything a victim types and steal information like passwords and account numbers.
