    On June 4, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned that President Barack Obama could face "impeachment" if he continued to release terror detainees from the military prison facility at Guantánamo Bay without Congress's explicit approval. On Thursday, however--the same day that the president announced his unilateral executive amnesty--Obama released five more terror detainees from Guantánamo, including four Al Qaeda fighters. At the time, Graham told The Hill: “It’s going to be impossible for them to flow prisoners out of Gitmo now without a huge backlash....There will be people on our side calling for his impeachment if he did that.” The context...

    The Obama administration broke the law when it released thousands of illegal immigrants, more than 600 of whom had criminal records, last February as a result of poor planning and micromanagement from Washington, according to an internal audit released Tuesday that says things have not improved in the 18 months since. Compounding matters, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) gave bad information to Congress, initially blaming the looming budget sequester, rather than the agency's own budget pressures, the Homeland Security inspector general concluded. In the new report the IG does clear top Homeland Security officials of accusations they pressured ICE...

    Afghanistan will release scores of prisoners considered by the US to be a security threat because there is insufficient evidence against them, President Hamid Karzai's office says. A statement said there was not enough evidence against 72 out of 88 prisoners previously held by the US. Correspondents say that the move will further strain relations with the US. The two countries are at loggerheads over President Karzai's refusal to sign a security deal with Washington. The US is strongly opposed to the releases because it says the prisoners have been involved in the wounding or killing of US and Nato...

    Earlier today the Associated Press reported that a Department of Homeland Security official had resigned in the wake of the Obama administration’s decision to release thousands of illegal aliens awaiting the judicial process. The department cited budget cuts as the reason for the releases, despite the fact that the cuts would hit about one percent of DHS’s budget, and they have not even happened yet. The AP’s story turns out to have been premature. No one has been fired or resigned in the wake of the release scandal. The senior Homeland Security Department official in charge of arresting and deporting...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama's re-election campaign identified its top fundraisers on Tuesday, including 61 people who each raised at least half a million dollars. Altogether, the more than 440 fundraisers collected at least $75 million to help Obama win a second term. Among them are embattled former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine. Obama's campaign and the Democratic National Committee late last year returned $70,000 in contributions from Corzine and his wife following questions about the collapse of MF Global, the financial firm Corzine ran. Corzine is no longer raising money for the re-election, campaign officials said. The campaign...

    Days after the mass release of hundreds of terrorists in exchange for Gilad Shalit, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has released a surprise demand, and is calling on Israel to release 1,000 more. Abbas claims that former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert promised him that if Israel were to free Hamas terrorists in exchange for Shalit, it would also free Fatah terrorists, in order to avoid hurting Abbas’ political standing. In an interview with TIME Magazine, Abbas said the deal was kept secret so that it would not affect negotiations for Shalit’s freedom. Olmert promised not only to free more terrorists,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama's campaign team has signed up an early wave of elite fundraisers who have collected at least $34.95 million combined since April, helping bankroll the president's re-election bid. The Obama campaign on Friday voluntarily disclosed its list of 244 individuals and couples who serve as "bundlers," often wealthy, well-connected donors who raise campaign cash from friends and business associates. The campaign has emphasized its more than 550,000 donors and note that Obama does not take money from political action committees or Washington lobbyists. But the list underscores the role of high-dollar bundlers who helped Obama...

The e-mail and the 28-page document attached to it, released Tuesday by the Environmental Protection Agency, show that back in December of 2007 the agency concluded that six gases linked to global warming pose dangers to public welfare, and wanted to take steps to regulate their release from automobiles and the burning of gasoline.

    A Pakistani court has ordered the release of the leader of an Islamic charity suspected of being a front for a group accused of the Mumbai attacks. The court ruled the continued house arrest of Jamaat-ud-Dawa founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed was unconstitutional. The charity is accused of being a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba, the group India says was behind the attacks. Mr Saeed is also a founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba. India has expressed its disappointment, calling the release "regrettable". More than 170 people died in the Mumbai (Bombay) attacks last November, including nine gunmen. Mr Saeed, who denies the charges against him,...

    Confronting the biggest crisis of his political career, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger today proposed slashing payments to schools by billions of dollars, releasing tens of thousands of "low risk" inmates from prison early, and closing a number of state parks as part of a plan to fill a gaping $14 billion hole in the state budget. The proposal immediately triggered howls of protest from lawmakers across the political spectrum and among some of the most powerful interest groups in the Capitol. The governor said he hopes to start a debate among Californians about what services they want from state government and...

    SACRAMENTO – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday released a revised state budget that calls for spending slightly more than he proposed in January, even as the state's soft housing market is expected to depress tax revenue in the coming year. Most of the increase in the nearly $104 billion general fund budget goes to education. In January, the governor's office had predicted that revenue from higher local property taxes would offset mandated increases in public school spending. That calculation appears to have been off, with the governor's office now estimating nearly $900 million in additional education expenses in the coming...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger released a tight-fisted spending plan on Wednesday that he said would eliminate the state's operating deficit for the first time in nearly a decade. The governor's $143.4 billion budget would limit general fund spending increases to less than 1 percent in the 2007-08 fiscal year, the smallest such increase in five years. It also is designed to clear the way for California to afford another round of massive borrowing for public works. "It is a prudent and realistic budget, a budget that lives within our means but still provides crucial services for the people," Schwarzenegger said. Some...

    Karzai Releases More Taliban Prisoners Sunday January 18, 2004 9:16 PM By STEPHEN GRAHAM Associated Press Writer KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - President Hamid Karzai ordered the release Sunday of more former Taliban fighters, a highly symbolic move that could boost his standing and undermine holdouts from the ousted hardline Islamic regime. Karzai issued a decree saying all Afghans detained at the northern Sheberghan prison and not considered dangerous should be set free immediately. It was unclear how many inmates were affected. Local officials said the jail holds more than 400 suspected Afghan Taliban. The government hopes the move, like the...

Egypt sometimes pardons prisoners as an act of goodwill on special holidays. The former militants, most of them members of al-Gamaa al-Islamiyya, or the Islamic Group, were released after they promised to renounce violence and expressed regret for their bloody past....

    (SACRAMENTO) – Attorney General Bill Lockyer today unveiled data that show California oil refiners' price markup between the barrel and gas pump increased 152 percent from January 2003 to March 2003 – with virtually all of the rise representing profit – and in March 2003 outstripped the margin in the rest of the country by 127 percent. "Californians have been afflicted with chronically exorbitant gas prices," said Lockyer. "These numbers raise legitimate questions about whether this state's drivers and businesses are getting gouged. But the data also show how important it is, for consumers' sake, that policymakers address the deep-seated...
