    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 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...

Carolyn and Michael Riley, of Hull, are charged with murder in the Dec. 13 death of their daughter, Rebecca.
