    A suspected member of the Al Qaeda terrorist group, arrested in May last year in Germany, was found with a memory stick hidden in his underwear. Police discovered the stick contained a password-protected folder with pornographic videos inside it, but suspicious computer forensic experts thought there must be more. After weeks of analysis, they determined that one of the pornographic videos contained concealed documents detailing Al Qaeda operations and plans. The files were hidden in the video file through a process called steganography or concealed writing. The term steganography includes methods used for centuries, such as invisible ink, but now...

The TSA, an element of the Department of Homeland Security, is responsible for the security of commercial aviation. Southers made his remarks in a 2008 video interview with the Videojug.com Web site.

    There is no quick fix, but an over-confident Russia is weaker than it looksFROM Brussels this week NATO brandished a fist at Russia, warning it that there could be no “business as usual” so long as Russian forces remained in Georgia. The Russians, oddly, did not quail. If anything, President Dmitry Medvedev and his mentor and prime minister, Vladimir Putin, seem to be enjoying the world’s impotent indignation in the face of their new-found machismo. And why not? They know that the West will not fight for the territorial integrity of Georgia, a trisected statelet of only 4m people...

    The Big Four Alliance The New Bush Strategy By Thomas Donnelly Posted: Friday, December 2, 2005 NATIONAL SECURITY OUTLOOK AEI Online   Publication Date: December 2, 2005   December 2005Over the past six months, the Bush administration has upgraded its budding “strategic partnerships” with India and Japan. Along with the steady "special relationship” with Great Britain, what is beginning to emerge is a global coalition system--it is too soon to call it a true alliance--for the post-Cold War world. Much work remains to be done to translate the expressions of similar political interests and values into usable military strength. Still,...

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - As Israeli police on Tuesday confronted supporters of Jewish settlers protesting the planned Gaza Strip withdrawal, Palestinians were fighting among themselves. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas is trying to contain increasingly defiant Islamic militants, with gunmen from his Fatah party confronting armed Hamas fighters. The result: offices torched by arsonists, wrecked cars and casualties on both sides. Fatah has unofficially asked its affiliated militant group, the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, to help fight Hamas as Abbas seeks to ensure a smooth Israeli pullout from Gaza settlements, Fatah and Al Aqsa members said. Israel and the...

    SULAIMANIYA, Iraq (Reuters) - Labourers digging on a construction site in northern Iraq uncovered human skulls and bones on Tuesday, which interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said were part of a mass grave believed to contain some 500 bodies. Allawi told Iraq's National Council in Baghdad that the grave was found near the city of Sulaimaniya in the autonomous Kurdish region in the northeast of the country, where Saddam Hussein's forces carried out atrocities in the late 1980s. "Today a mass grave was discovered in the city of Sulaimaniya, with the initial number of 500 martyrs," he said. Allawi...

    California's constitution is long, convoluted and filled with too much minutiae. But one section that deserves to be there, and is pretty clear, is the part that prohibits state government from borrowing money without a vote of the people. Article 16, Section 1 says that the state shall not create any public debt that exceeds $300,000 unless the money is for a "single object or work" and is approved by a majority of the voters in a primary or general election. The idea is that lawmakers and governors who come and go shouldn't obligate future generations to repay debts run...

    WASHINGTON - More than one-third of the nation's lakes and nearly one-fourth of its rivers contain fish that may be contaminated with mercury, dioxin, PCB and pesticide pollution, the Environmental Protection Agency (news - web sites) says. The EPA released a list of advisories issued by states that monitor lakes and rivers for pollution levels affecting fish caught during recreational and sport fishing but not deep-sea commercial fishing. "It's about trout, not tuna. It's about what you catch on the shore, not what you buy the shelf," Mike Leavitt, the administrator of EPA, said Tuesday. "This is about the health...
