Leaked documents say a US listening unit was based in its Berlin embassy - and similar operations were replicated in 80 locations around the world. The German...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger neatly summed up the reason for the current crisis facing our state's prisons last month by telling the Los Angeles Times that: "You talk about prisons, people feel like, 'OK, go out and get the criminal and you send him somewhere, but wherever that is, I don't want to look there, I don't want to know.'… When the people are not excited about it, how do you make the legislators excited about it?" It was the kind of statement that really cuts to the heart of the problem, the kind that could only be uttered by someone...
