    The FARC and the Quest for Surface to Air Missiles By Douglas Farah SNIPPET: "The Miami Herald today reports that the Colombian FARC has likely already fulfilled its long-time goal of purchasing surface to air missiles to be used against U.S.-supplied helicopters in Colombia. The FARC has long placed a very high strategic priority on acquiring SAMs, going back to at least 2003. The commanders officially requested money from Libya and Nicaragua at that time to purchase the weapons because the insurgency was being so badly hurt by helicopters acquired by the military and police." SNIPPET: "It is not a...

    George Torres' future looked pretty bleak: The supermarket mogul had been stripped of his riches by government prosecutors, convicted in a massive racketeering case and was awaiting a potential life sentence in federal prison. But in a stunning reversal of fortune Tuesday, the government released its grip on Torres' assets, a judge tossed out the most serious convictions against him, and he was ordered set free -- at least for now. The turnaround came after prosecutors in the U.S. attorney's office in Los Angeles turned over tape-recorded conversations that contained information that was potentially beneficial to Torres' defense regarding at...

    LOS ANGELES -- Supporters say George Torres is a hardworking and generous immigrant entrepreneur who built a grocery-store chain serving some of the region's toughest neighborhoods.

Those two views of the 52-year-old Mexican national who grew up in Los Angeles will clash during a federal-court trial scheduled to begin on Tuesday. Prosecutors accuse Mr. Torres of heading a racketeering scheme since the 1980s, using money and force to battle rivals and expand his business enterprises....

    The growing unpopularity of the war in Iraq gives Democrats an unprecedented chance at changing the political leadership in the state and nation, California Democratic Party chairman Art Torres said Thursday. Speaking at the Green Valley Grill, before a room jammed with an appreciative audience of party activists from across the Central Coast, Torres urged the local Democratic leaders to register voters and get them to the polls in November. A high turnout, driven by displeasure over Iraq, could affect state races, even helping Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides oust Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Torres said.

    Did Nichols and Yousef meet? Closer analysis of Terry Nichols and Ramzi Yousef timelines creates a compelling, if still circumstantial, case — and offers clues to where the smoking guns may be found By J.M. BERGER In November 1994, Terry Nichols and Ramzi Yousef both walked on the grounds of the same college campus in the Philippines. Whether their paths crossed is a question that still dogs researchers. But it's increasingly clear that what separates their respective itineraries is sometimes a matter of yards, feet or even inches, within a span of days, hours and sometimes mere minutes. They...
