    Only in Turkey is the identity of a citizen a matter of national security. That’s why the population registry in Ankara was until now a closed book, its details a state secret. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk’s definition of “Turkishness” was “anyone who is attached to the Turkish state as a citizen”. Turks came from a clear ethnic identity, untainted by racial minorities or doubtful lineage. That’s one reason why the Nazis lavished praise on Ataturk’s republic, their newspapers mourning his death in black-bordered front pages. After all, as Hitler was to ask in several newspaper interviews – and to his generals...

    PRAGUE (Reuters) - A Czech court ruled on Tuesday that former Syrian Kurdish PYD leader Saleh Muslim be released, despite Turkey’s call for his detention pending an extradition request. snip “The court ruled Mr. Muslim will be released,” a spokeswoman for the Prague Municipal Court, Marketa Puci, said, adding the ruling had taken legal effect as both the state attorney and the defense gave up their rights to appeal. “The court accepted a promise by Mr. Muslim that he will remain on EU territory and will be attending court hearings.”

    ISTANBUL/ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey said on Friday the case of two journalists held for more than a year over alleged ties to a failed coup would be decided by a local court, after the Constitutional Court ruled they be freed, a turnaround likely to deepen concerns for press freedom. snip Earlier on Friday Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said the top court had overstepped its limit. “When ruling on individual applications, the Constitutional Court... cannot act like a super appeals court and cannot make rulings like such courts,” Bozdag wrote on Twitter.

    'Nothing has been done or will be done to disabuse them of their sentiment' News from a Congressional Research Service report that 50 “homegrown violent jihadists” are scheduled to be released in the United States between last January and the end of 2026 raises the obvious question of whether Americans have something to fear. Among the incarcerated, according to the Bureau of Prisons, are 380 linked to international terrorism and 83 tied to domestic terrorism. Unfortunately, more attention has been paid to incarcerating the jihadists than to what happens when they complete their sentences, the Associated Press noted in a...

    Full title: In Freeing Illegal Alien Gang Member Obama Judge Says U.S. Violated Rights of Due Process, Family Unity An Obama-appointed federal judge in Virginia ordered an illegal immigrant member of a violent street gang released from prison because immigration authorities supposedly violated his rights when he entered the U.S. illegally through Mexico. The Honduran teen crossed the Rio Grande during the influx of illegal alien minors a few years ago and turned himself into the U.S Border Patrol, according to a lengthy mainstream newspaper article , after acknowledging his gang history. The feds held him without a hearing in...

    A FEMALE jihadi nicknamed the “Muse of ISIS” has been released after serving just four months of a 15-year sentence, due to a technicality. Fatima Aberkan, 55, was convicted of terrorism charges after being linked to Islamic State recruiters and taking her two teenage daughters to Syria. Two of her sons meanwhile have been a part of terror groups in the region for some time now. But her lawyer filed an appeal on the grounds that the court had not come up with an appeal date. Officials were then left with no choice but to release the convicted jihadi and...

  • Obama released 19,723 undocumented immigrants convicted of crime

    The chief of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said on Thursday her agency released 19,723 undocumented immigrants last year who had been convicted of crimes, drawing a volley of criticism from Republican lawmakers. In a heated exchange at a congressional hearing into crime committed by illegal immigrants, Republicans grilled top Obama administration immigration official Sarah Saldana. The issue is at the heart of Republican demands for tighter control of U.S. borders and has often featured in rhetoric over immigration in the 2016 presidential election campaign. Saldana defended her record and pleaded for comprehensive immigration reform. "I cannot tell you...

    The State Department released more than 7,000 of Hillary Clinton’s work-related emails Monday, the fourth and largest such release to date of the former secretary of state’s correspondence. The emails, most of which date from December 2009 to December 2010, include approximately 150 containing information that was upgraded to “confidential” status, the lowest category for classified information. That brings the total number of Clinton emails retroactively determined to contain classified information to more than 210. That is in addition to four emails that the Intelligence Community inspector general determined contained information that was classified at the time that it traversed...

    The Department of Justice improperly withheld public documents related to Fast and Furious after the first Freedom of Information (FOI) requests for them several years ago. The agency was recently forced to produce some of the materials to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which filed a FOI lawsuit to obtain the information. (To date, the Justice Department still has not complied with FOI law in providing the same public documents to me as a FOI requestor.) Fortunately, Judicial Watch has posted the documents for public review. The Justice Department is still withholding thousands of documents. The thousands of documents...

    The Obama administration says it had no choice but to release almost all of the 169 murderers it let go from immigration detention last year, saying court decisions gave officials no choice in the matter — but it’s promising a new system to better screen who gets let out. Of the 169 immigrants with homicide-related convictions released in fiscal 2013, all but 15 were required to be let go because of specific court orders or because the immigrants had been held for too long under the rules established by a sweeping 2001 Supreme Court case, the Homeland Security Department said...
