    Last week in the dead of night I loaded up my grab and go gear and waited for the appropriate time after night had set in. After spending several hours ensuring nobody was watching I hit the road. I kept to the highways playing the tourist and made my way to the border. As it approached I made sure my speed was kept to the legal limit and there was no reason for the authorities to pull me over. My heart was beating a bit harder than normal as I crossed into a free state and only after I saw...

    A criminal suspect in an investigation into a major security breach on the House of Representatives computer network has abruptly left the country and gone to Pakistan, where her family has significant assets and VIP-level protection, a relative and others told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

Capitol Police confirmed the investigation is ongoing, but no arrests have been...

    At least 100 thousand civilians have been transferred from Raqqa city center and surroundings to safe zones. There is an escape among all the dust. The people advance in groups. Vehicles are filled up up to 3 times their height. People are everywhere, walking. Dust clouds make it hard to see far. The town and villages they leave behind aren’t visible, there is a vague sight behind them. In the muggy weather and hot wind, women in black niqabs can be seen. A child carries a baby. Everybody is exhausted. There is the mark of exhaustion on children’s faces, their...

    Stuck in a Bangkok jail with a deportation order against her, Chen Guiqiu waited with dread over what seemed certain to come next. A Thai immigration official showed her surveillance video of the jail entrance, where more than a dozen Chinese security agents were waiting. Within minutes, Chen feared, she and her two daughters would be escorted back to China, where her husband, prominent rights lawyer Xie Yang, was held on a charge of inciting subversion - and where punishment for attempting to flee surely awaited her. After weeks on the run, Chen was exhausted, and so was her luck....

    The Washington Times ^ | January 17, 2017 | Antonio Benedi
    I couldn’t have imagined that President Obama could do any more harm to the Cuban people before he left office, but I was wrong. With only a week left in his presidency he announced that the long-standing policy of accepting Cubans that flee the Communist island of Cuba by sea — the policy known as “wet feet, dry feet” — would change. That policy has been in place since President Clinton declared it so after the horrific debacle of the Clinton administration’s handling of 9-year-old Elian Gonzalez. After the forced deportation of Elian Gonzalez by armed U.S. federal agents under...

    LONDON, Oct 26 (Reuters) – Unknown assailants attacked a gas tanker off the coast of Yemen close to the Bab al-Mandab waterway in the latest flare up in an area through which much of the world’s oil passes, shipping and security officials said on Wednesday. The incident, the first attack on a commercial ship since July, followed missile attacks in recent weeks on military craft, including U.S. navy vessels, which were launched from Yemen that had already raised risks for merchant shipping.

    Police in Vietnam's southeast Dong Nai province are searching for more than 200 presumed drug addicts who broke out of a compulsory rehabilitation center. About 560 inmates broke out Sunday, some using fire extinguishers and sticks to break walls and windows, but police recaptured about 330. The center holds 1,481 inmates, about twice the center's capacity. Residents in the province east of Ho Chi Minh City have been urged to stay indoors and lock their doors after inmates began moving through the area. Some officials believe the escaped inmates left the province aboard taxis.

    I awoke this morning to an excited email from a longtime friend who wrote, “Guess who is going to be officially confirmed as a Polish citizen next month? Yours truly! Now, it’s just matter of waiting to be assigned the Polish version of a social security number and pick up the physical passport. “ No doubt, if you’re part of the lucky bloodline club because your grandparents happen to have been a certain nationality at birth, it’s possible that their citizenship might pass on to you. This is, by far, the fastest, easiest, and most cost effective way to obtaining...

Serbian officials confirmed his identity in mid-August after checks with Interpol and Spanish police. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the extradition date would not be made public for security reasons. "A statement will not be issued before he arrives...

    He used her until he had no more use for her. Escaped killer Richard Matt won the heart of prison supervisor Joyce “Tillie’’ Mitchell so he could get the tools he needed to break out — and then vanished without so much as a thank you, sources told The Post on Tuesday. Modal Trigger “She really doesn’t have much to tell about where they were going or what they were doing after,” a source said of Mitchell, who is suspected of helping Matt and fellow murderer David Sweat escape. The married 51-year-old seamstress risked everything because “she thought there was...

I know, I know . . reality has to hit you and do so quickly. These are very dangerous men who have killed before and almost surely would have no compunction about doing so again if they think it’s necessary to help them evade capture. So it’s not with approval, but a sort of horrified respect, that I observe escape from maximum security prison using power tools is quite the dubious...
