Well this is strange. On Sunday the New York Post, a property owned by conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch, published an investigative report alleging the involvement of Saudi Arabian government officials in the 9/11 terrorist attacks titled “Inside the 9/11 Coverup.”The thesis of the piece is that the 9/11 hijackers were not only mostly from Saudi Arabia but had received financial and operational support from Saudi government officials and that after the attacks the Saudi government used its political connections in the Bush White House to coverup their involvement.

On the heels of the “Zimmerman destroys wife’s iPad in a fit of rage,” story I got this letter from the founder of the United States Concealed Carry Association. What I really love about this letter is the way the author correlates what his son did with the SYG concept. He also uses the whole father/son pride/disappointment and bully/victim construct to pluck at the heart strings and open the wallets.

The British Parliament’s rejection of an attack on Syria is a direct contrast — and implicit challenge — to the political war system of the United States.
“It is clear to me that the British Parliament, reflecting the views of the British people, does not want to see British military action. I get that, and the government will act accordingly,” Prime Minister David Cameron said Thursday night. At least for now, Uncle Sam’s poodle is off the leash.
Now all eyes turn to Congress, where the bar has suddenly been raised. Can the House of Representatives measure up to the House of Commons?

Say what you will about George W. Bush, he at least understood the best way to get a “yes” in the often paralyzed Congress was to simply give people what they wanted most. He would give conservatives lower taxes, he would sometimes try to give Democrats increased spending on programs, and he would give corporations a cushy role as needless middlemen.

Back in November 2012, the Washington Post reported on a “secret” presidential directive that President Barack Obama had signed and characterized it as “the most extensive White House effort to date to wrestle with what constitutes an ‘offensive’ and a ‘defensive’ action in the rapidly evolving world of cyberwar and cyberterrorism.” This cybersecurity directive, which was classified “top secret,” has been published by The Guardian‘s Glenn Greenwald and is the latest in a series of leaks on government surveillance.
The directive is “Presidential Policy Directive 20.”
