  • NSA employees given (Thanksgiving) talking points for discussing agency with family

    Guardian ^ | 12/02/13 | Spencer Ackerman
    **SNIP** ...the NSA evidently compiled a two-page document, dated November 22, giving instructions for discussing the highly secretive agency with “family and close friends”. Among the points officials are “authorized to share” this holiday season: “The NSA’s mission is of great value to the nation”; it performs its missions “exceptionally well”; and its employees are “loyal Americans with expert skills”. NSA officials did not respond to questions about the talking points, their preparation and their veracity. While most of the talking points simply provide that level of uncritical assurance, several pass along disputable or disputed claims – things that can...

Yeah, you were wrong to do that. 2.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden took an unusual stroll to a sandwich shop down the street from the White House on Friday, a photo opportunity designed to show their solidarity for workers laid off due to a government shutdown. Obama also seized the opportunity to respond to an embarrassing quote from an unnamed White House official that Republicans have used to their advantage in the battle over who is to blame for hundreds of thousands of people going without pay checks.

    Jon Stewart has met the enemy, and it's the media. The Comedy Central comedian and "Daily Show" host walked a fine line between politics and humor Saturday as he gathered tens of thousands on the National Mall for his "Rally to Restore Sanity." Expectations for what Stewart had dubbed his "million moderate march" ranged from the hope of left-leaning groups that the rally would spark the youth vote ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections to the desire for many attendees to enjoy an afternoon of pointed satire inspired by Fox News' Glenn Beck's massive rally two months ago to "restore honor."...

    It is rare that the network news media expose President Barack Obama’s hypocrisy on any point, which is why Mark Knoller’s CBS story on July 22 was so enlightening. Covering Obama’s July 22 signing of a bill “restoring” jobless benefits to roughly 2.5 million Americans who have been unemployed for more than 26 weeks, Knoller wrote that Obama “changes tune on paying for unemployment benefits extension.” Many in the news media lauded this “relief” bill and vilified conservatives trying to block its passage. The GOP filibuster was based on the idea that the $34 billion should be paid for, rather...

    NEW YORK (JTA) -- Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi insinuated that Israel was behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Speaking Wednesday at the United Nations General Assembly, Gadhafi implied that Israel may have plotted to kill Kennedy in 1963 because he allegedly wanted to launch a probe into its clandestine nuclear program. “Jack Ruby, an Israeli, killed Lee Harvey Oswald,” the Libyan leader was quoted by the translator as saying. “Why did this Israeli kill Harvey? Ruby later died mysteriously. The whole world should know that Kennedy wanted to investigate the actions of the Israeli nuclear reactor in Dimona.”

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - In yet another fissure within radical Islamist networks, one of the world's most influential jihadi theologians is coming under fire from some former followers for allegedly moderating his views – a claim he denies. The attacks on Jordanian cleric Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, who was spiritual adviser for the late Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, are significant because of Mr. Maqdisi's longtime stature as a revered spiritual mentor who legitimizes violence with his religious interpretations of Islamic sacred texts.

The findings challenge a century-old argument that the racial gap in performance on IQ tests is primarily genetic and therefore invulnerable to social change, say the researchers who performed the new study. They examined data that have only recently become available to researchers, says William Dickens of the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. Using test results from a random...

In court papers made public Friday, the defense asked a federal judge for access to police files on the molester.

The goal was to create several security posts in Al Anbar Province. These posts would be manned entirely by the Iraqi Army and would help them to maintain law and order. Constructing these posts would be risky. Prolonged construction periods in this area might endanger construction workers.

    As oil companies struggle to repair their battered Gulf Coast refineries, President Bush and his congressional allies want to make it easier to build new ones. Legislation introduced last week would ease environmental restrictions on gasoline refineries and speed up the process for securing government permits to build them. Congressional Republicans, who introduced the measure, say the need couldn't be more obvious. Hurricanes Katrina and Rita briefly knocked out more than a quarter of the nation's refining capacity, sending gasoline prices to record highs. Some Gulf Coast refineries flooded by the storms could take months to repair. And the nation's...
