She was found, still alive, at 9:30 a.m. Monday morning -- with holes in her shell and a bloodied right eye. Vets gave the battered animal a 40 per cent chance of survival, and were due to operate on Tuesday morning. But her injuries ended up being too extensive and she died on Monday night, reports the Journal Sentinel.

Sean Hannity Displays Staggering Hypocrisy on NSA Surveillance

Sean Hannity Displays Staggering Hypocrisy on NSA Surveillance 12 Jun 2013 Sean Hannity sure has changed his tune. The rambunctious Fox News host on Monday lashed into the Obama administration over the revelations of widespread Internet and phone surveillance by the National Security Agency, warning that "anarchy and tyranny will follow." But back in 2006, when a similar NSA spying scandal was unearthed during President [sic] George W. Bush's administration, Hannity wasn't so concerned. He came out as a staunch defender of the NSA then, saying it was "staggering to me we are even debating the use of these techniques in this country even at this time." (Video)

Edward Snowden vows not to 'hide from justice' amid new hacking claims

Edward Snowden vows not to 'hide from justice' amid new hacking claims 12 Jun 2013 The NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden vowed to fight an expected move by the US to have him extradited from Hong Kong in a new interview published on Wednesday.

Snowden claimed that the US had hacked hundreds of targets in Hong Kong -- including public officials, a university, businesses and students in the city -- and on the mainland. These were part of more than 61,000 NSA hacking operations globally, he alleged.

A.C.L.U. Sues to Bar 'Dragnet' Collection of Phone Records

A.C.L.U. Sues to Bar 'Dragnet' Collection of Phone Records 12 Jun 2013 The American Civil Liberties Union on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration over its "dragnet" collection of logs of domestic phone calls, contending that the once-secret program -- whose existence was exposed by a former National Security Agency contractor last week -- is illegal and asking a judge to both stop it and order the records purged. The lawsuit, filed in New York, could set up an eventual Supreme Court test. The program "gives the government a comprehensive record of our associations and public movements, revealing a wealth of detail about our familial, political, professional, religious and intimate associations," the complaint says, adding that it "is likely to have a chilling effect on whistle-blowers and others who would otherwise contact" the A.C.L.U. for legal assistance.

New layer of secrecy emerges at Guantanamo 'court'

New layer of secrecy emerges at Guantanamo 'court' 10 Jun 2013 When the war [kangaroo] court reconvenes this week, pretrial hearings in the case of an alleged al-Qaida bomber will be tackling a government motion that's so secret the public can't know its name. It's listed as the 92nd court filing in the death-penalty case against a Saudi man, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who was waterboarded by CIA agents. And in place of its name, the Pentagon has stamped "classified" in red. Also on the docket for discussion this week is a classified defense motion that asks the Army judge to order the government to reveal information "related to the arrest, detention and interrogation" of al-Nashiri. By the time he got to Guantanamo in 2006, according to declassified investigations, CIA agents had held him at secret overseas prisons for four years during which, according to declassified accounts, he was waterboarded and interrogated at the point of a revving power drill and racked pistol. But what makes the no-name government motion so intriguing is that those who've read it can't say what it's about, and those who haven't don't have a clue. Not even the accused, who, unless the judge rules for the defense, is not allowed to get an unclassified explanation of it - and cannot sit in on the court session when it's argued in secret.

Pakistan's Nawaz Sharif declares end to secret approval of U.S. drone strikes
