    The 39 year-old told journalists at the Frontline Club last night that US government insiders had informed him about discussions to charge him as a co-conspirator to espionage. The discussions were later dropped. Mr Assange says despite this he still fears he is at risk of being forcefully detained by the US government as a material witness in the prosecution of US intelligence analyst Bradley Manning. Mr Manning, 22, was arrested in Baghdad in May and charged earlier this month with multiple counts of mishandling and leaking classified data, after a computer hacker turned him in. In the United States...

    Olbermann: Sherrod was 'Assassinated by Fox News and That Scum Breitbart' By Noel Sheppard Thu, 07/22/2010 - 01:19 ET Keith Olbermann interrupted his much-needed vacation Wednesday to surprise his few viewers with a "Special Comment" about the forced resignation of USDA official Shirley Sherrod.Quite predictably, his greater than twelve minute tirade largely focused on Fox News and Andrew Breitbart -- the latter repeatedly referred to as "scum" as well as a "pornographer of propaganda" -- who he claimed "assassinated" Sherrod.After starting his rant by pompously comparing the former USDA official to Alfred Dreyfus, the French artillery officer falsely accused of...

    A former Orlando TSA security officer arrested for allegedly molesting a minor pleaded no contest to one charge today and was sentenced to 10 years' sex-offender probation. A victim told deputies Bennett asked her to be his sex slave and fondled her against her will. He pleaded no contest to the molestation charge, while prosecutors dropped the second count as part of the plea deal. Bennett, 58, could have received a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison for the felony. "Are you satisfied with your attorney?" Orange Circuit Judge Marc Lubet asked Bennett during the sentencing. "Yes," Bennett replied....

    In mid-May, Portland police Officer James Crooker went to Southeast Portland on a patrol call. With a few minutes to spare, he decided to get a coffee. So, he popped into the Red & Black cafe on Southeast 12th Avenue near Oak Street, bought a coffee and was heading out when a customer approached him, saying she appreciates the hard job that police officers do every day in Portland. One of the co-owners of the cafe, John Langley, has another point of view. While the officer and customer were chatting, he walked up and asked Crooker to leave, saying he...

    Six months after losing a bruising battle for the 23rd Congressional District seat, Dierdre K. Scozzafava has decided to take a break from politics. The Gouverneur resident said Wednesday she will not seek a seventh term in the 122nd Assembly District. “If you go back to the run for Congress, I was really looking to do something different and go in a different direction and be challenged differently,” the Republican said Wednesday. “That hasn’t changed. As much as I’ve enjoyed my time in the state Assembly, I think it’s time for me to take a breather and go in a...
  • Scud Crisis Threatens War between Israel, Hizbullah

    A "Scud Crisis" is threatening to ignite an all-out war between Israel and Hizbullah, the Kuwaiti al-Rai newspaper reported. The daily said that Syria has delivered to Hizbullah Scud missiles, sparking a behind-the-scenes crisis after Israel informed Washington that "it will take steps if the U.S. didn't find a solution to what the Jewish state considers a threat to its security." Following the Israeli warning, the U.S. State Department summoned Syrian ambassador Imad Mustafa and asked him "to inform his government about the level of danger if the missiles crossed the border," al-Rai said. Washington also reportedly told Mustafa that...

    HADLEY, Mass. - Lawyers for three teenage girls accused of participating in the bullying of a 15-year-old girl who committed suicide entered not guilty pleas Thursday on their behalf to charges including civil rights violations and criminal harassment. Ashley Longe, Sharon Chanon Velazquez and Flannery Mullins, all 16, did not appear in Franklin-Hampshire Juvenile Court for their arraignments. A judge ordered them to have no contact with the family of Phoebe Prince, a South Hadley High School freshman who hanged herself in January after what prosecutors called an "unrelenting" three-month bullying campaign by six teenagers. Prosecutors say Prince was targeted...

    After a White House session attended by President Barack Obama and several of the country's top health insurers, Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius questioned the industry's "jaw-dropping" rate hikes. "The meeting was really focused on what is happening with the kind of jaw-dropping rate increases that people are seeing," Sebelius said, calling on insurers to file requests for rate increases online along with financial data. The day after Obama launched a last-ditch drive to pass a sweeping healthcare overhaul, he also met at the White House with groups of liberal and moderate Democrats from the House of Representatives to seek their...

    Sen. Charles Schumer is denying a published report that he called the Securities and Exchange Commission for details about the probe into Bernie Madoff's $65 billion-dollar Ponzi scheme. In his a book set to be released next week, "No One Would Listen," Madoff whistleblower Harry Markopolos passes along an unsourced claim that New York's senior senator, a powerhouse fundraiser with close ties to Wall Street, called the financial industry watchdog for the inside scoop. He maintains Schumer did nothing wrong. "I was told, by a government agency, for example, that New York Senator Charles Schumer called the SEC at some...

    WASHINGTON, Feb 22 (Reuters) - A modest job-creation bill advanced in the U.S. Senate on Monday as the chamber's newest Republican bucked his party and sided with Democrats on a $15 billion package of tax cuts and highway spending. Republican Scott Brown joined four other Republicans, 55 Democrats and two independents to overcome a procedural hurdle that sets up a final vote later this week. Brown was widely hailed as a conservative hero after his surprise victory in Massachusetts last month gave Republicans enough seats to block most Democratic legislation..............................

    It is legal for lawyers, like anyone else, to give campaign money to politicians. But questions arise when the politicians are local officials with influence over the selection of legal counsel for shareholder lawsuits filed by public pension funds, a role that can be lucrative. A Wall Street Journal analysis documented the extent of campaign giving by plaintiffs' law firms specializing in shareholder litigation. It found that 25 leading firms, their lawyers and family members contributed a total of more than $21 million in the past decade to state-level candidates and party funds, as well as to national-party groups that...
