    CIA’s Global Response Staff (GRS) Part of the expansion of the CIA’s paramilitary capabilities, GRS units are *secret* security forces created after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Ty Woods and Glen Doherty were both members of the CIA’s GRS, an organization that has recruited hundreds of former U.S. Special Forces operatives and veterans of police department SWAT teams to serve as armed guards to provide a layer of security for CIA officers in high-risk outposts, whose counterterrorism assignments carry a level of risk. Was David Ubben working for the GRS as a contractor ??

    The Guilford County Department of Social Services (DSS) scandal has left a mountain of questions in its wake as to how it came about, and now county officials investigating the matter are finally starting to get some answers. **SNIP** One Guilford County DSS employee told the Rhino Times this week that the problems in the department go very deep and this latest crisis is just one manifestation of those issues. “No management manages,” the employee wrote in an email. “No policy is completely followed. People are authorized benefits that are not thoroughly evaluated. Workers have to keep authorizing clients that...

  • Since ancient scribes were so totally accurate ... mistakes ...? (Ecumenical)

    Since ancient scribes were so totally accurate in their work, how could any mistakes ever enter into the Bible? There is a myth among some circles that ancient scribes were so incredibly cautious, making sure that every letter was perfectly copied, that they never produced any mistakes when copying the manuscripts, and thus all ancient manuscripts agree with each other. This is entirely bogus - a deceptive lie or statement of shear stupidity. The great Hebrew scholar, Emmanuel Tov, for example, has discussed numerous scribal problems in Hebrew manuscripts. In a 1994 lecture entitled "The Hebrew Bible and the Dead...

    CLICK TO WATCH VIDEO Latter-day Saints love ancient religious records. We have already received the Bible, Book of Mormon, and Pearl of Great Price, and we look forward with anticipation to receiving the "words of the lost tribes of Israel" (2 Nephi 29:13), to the unsealing of a large portion of the golden plates, and to the restoration of other ancient texts authored by Adam, Enoch, Joseph, and others. It was no wonder, then, that since the 1947 discovery of ancient scrolls hidden in caves along the shores of the Dead Sea, many Latter-day Saints have been fascinated by the...

    Prosecutors believe the parents accused of fatally overdosing their 4-year-old daughter killed the girl because she wasn't earning them the same amount of government money as her two older siblings, the woman's defense lawyer said Monday. Michael Bourbeau, Carolyn Riley's lawyer, told The Associated Press a prosecutor outlined for him the motive, which he called "a sick theory." Carolyn and Michael Riley, of Hull, are charged with murder in the Dec. 13 death of their daughter, Rebecca. [SNIP] Bourbeau said Assistant District Attorney Frank Middleton told him prosecutors believe the Rileys sent Rebecca to a psychiatrist so she would be...

    Court: Father Can't Raise Child Despite Mother's Deception Woman Lied, Saying Baby DiedPOSTED: 7:06 am EDT June 21, 2006 RALEIGH, N.C. -- A biological father should lose his parental rights because he did not establish himself as a caregiver, even though the mother deceived the man by claiming she had a miscarriage, the state Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday. Pernell Ingram argued that he had provided sufficient care to the mother to qualify as the legal father of a child born out of wedlock. The Newton Grove man said he had provided "consistent care" by frequently caring for the mother's...

    Anderson Urrutia, 8, complained of a headache on Sunday night. Then his tummy started hurting. At 2:15 a.m., he walked into his parents' bedroom and asked if he had to go to school. "I don't want to get in trouble again," he told his mother. Anderson, a second-grader at Occoquan Elementary School, went to school on Monday with 5-year-old kindergartner Joseph Soriano after the two were not allowed to attend class Friday for wearing T-shirts that were deemed potentially disruptive by the principal. Printed in large blue letters with red trim, the T-shirts stated in Spanish "Latino Forever" on the...

The daughter, 16-year-old Pearl Cruz, who last month was key to the capital murder conviction of her father, Ronnie Joe Neal, said he first abused her when she was about 13 years old and later forced her into prostitution at cheap motels along Austin Highway. The abuse, she said, was...

    BOISE, Idaho (Reuters) - Pregnant mothers caught using illegal drugs could go to prison for endangering their unborn children under a bill passed by the Idaho State Senate on Tuesday. "The first thing we're after is a drug-free baby," said State Sen. Denton Darrington, a Republican who said his eastern Idaho district is plagued by methamphetamine use. "Meth is a problem everywhere in the state of Idaho." If the measure passes the Idaho House and receives the approval of Idaho Gov. Dirk Kempthorne, a Republican, the measure would be the first in the United States specifically to make it a...
