    SAN FRANCISCO -- After years of wrangling over legal procedures, the lawyer for a defunct Islamic charity laid out his case Wednesday that former President George W. Bush's secret wiretapping program was illegal - an argument that an Obama administration attorney refused to discuss. "May the president of the United States break the law in the name of national security? ... We're asking this court to say, 'no,' " Jon Eisenberg, lawyer for the Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation, told a federal judge in San Francisco. Neither the president's constitutional powers as commander in chief nor Congress' authorization to use military force...

    “ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.” These were the words of Leon Eisenberg, the “scientific father of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder),” in his last interview before his death. Leon Eisenberg made a luxurious living off of his “fictitious disease,” thanks to pharmaceutical sales. Coincidentally, he received the “Ruane Prize for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Research. He has been a leader in child psychiatry for more than 40 years through his work in pharmacological trials, research, teaching, and social policy and for his theories of autism and social medicine,” according to Psychiatric News.

    DOVER — Convicted hostage taker Leeland Eisenberg was sent back to prison for 3 1⁄2-to-7-years on Thursday for a February probation violation where he went on a 24-hour drug and alcohol bender. Eisenberg took the stand in his own defense during the probation violation hearing and pointed the finger at officials with Strafford County Community Corrections for his current predicament. He said they wanted him to fail. (snip) The 3 1⁄2-to-7-year prison sentence is a suspended sentence that stems from the November 2007 incident where Eisenberg strapped road flares to his chest and entered the downtown Rochester campaign office of...

    CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire authorities say the man who took hostages at a Hillary Rodham Clinton presidential campaign office in 2007 has cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet and is a fugitive who is a danger to the public. Strafford County Attorney Thomas Velardi says Leeland Eisenberg cut off the bracelet Tuesday morning. Verlardi says that was a day after Eisenberg was given a “last chance” at freedom by a judge who released him despite probation violations. Velardi says Eisenberg should not be approached.

    ROCHESTER, N.H. - The stepdaughter of a distraught New Hampshire man, who touched off a hostage drama at Hillary Clinton’s campaign headquarters in Rochester, N.H., said she feared her stepfather was going to be gunned down. “I was fearful.

    ROCHESTER, N.H. - In the hours before he allegedly took five people hostage at Hillary Clinton's campaign office Friday, Leeland Eisenberg sat drinking rum and cokes with his stepson in his trailer. He drank heavily, and in a fog of frustration and delusion, said he could no longer afford his medication for bipolar disorder, his stepson, Benjamin Warren, said by phone last night. Unemployed, Eisenberg had no money to see a doctor; a local hospital turned him away when he went for help, Warren said.

    BY modern American standards it was a very minor crisis, but a bizarre hostage-taking episode at one of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign offices in New Hampshire on Friday offered the former first lady an unexpected opportunity to display her leadership qualities. Clinton was far from the scene and never at risk from a mentally unstable man who eventually surrendered to police after holding three campaign workers hostage. Yet her calm demeanour and authoritative response to a potentially ugly drama was yesterday earning her widespread praise. Clinton followed the incident from her home in Washington, then flew to New Hampshire to...

    When the hostages had been released and their alleged captor arrested, a regal-looking Hillary Rodham Clinton strolled out of her Washington home, the picture of calm in the face of crisis. The image, broadcast just as the network news began, conveyed the message a thousand town hall meetings and campaign commercials strive for — namely, that the Democratic presidential contender can face disorder in a most orderly manner. "I am very grateful that this difficult day has ended so well," she declared as she stood alone at the microphone. Little more than three hours later, just in time for the...
