"The notion that we would condition Iran not getting nuclear weapons in a verifiable deal on Iran recognising Israel is really akin to saying that we won't sign a deal unless the nature of the Iranian regime [sic] completely transforms," Obama said in an interview with National Public Radio (NPR).

April 6, 2015 by legitgov

Lufthansa says not obligated to report crash pilot's medical record | 06 April 2015 | Lufthansa said on Monday it was not required to inform German aviation authorities about Andreas Lubitz's former depression because he qualified as a pilot before stricter reporting rules went into effect in 2013.

The question of what Lufthansa knew about any psychiatric problems may be a factor in its liability in the crash.

In a 2009 voter-registration application, obtained from the Miami-Dade County Elections Department, Mr. Bush marked Hispanic in the field labeled "race/ethnicity." A Bush spokeswoman could offer no explanation for the characterization.

CSIS shares terrorism travel info with 'trusted partners': memo --Inclusion of 'non-traditional partners' beyond Five Eyes spy network worries critic | 05 April 2015 | The Canadian Security Intelligence Service has set up a "multilateral forum of trusted partners" to share information on suspected extremists travelling abroad -- a group that extends beyond its customary Five Eyes spy network, a newly released memo says. In the memo, "CSIS Response: Addressing the Terrorist Travel Threat," Canada's spy agency also flags a concern about the challenges it faces in going further to build relationships with "non-traditional partners." The September CSIS memo evokes the kind of information-sharing that led to the overseas torture of four Arab-Canadians following the 9/11 attacks, said Alex Neve, secretary general of Amnesty International Canada.

Terror suspects considered attacking NYPD funeral | 3 April 2015 | Two New York City women accused of plotting a terrorist attack are in federal custody. Court documents said Noelle Velentzas, 28, and Asia Siddiqui, 31, were influenced by ISIS and the Boston Marathon bombings.

In December of last year, they considered attacking the funeral of one of the two NYPD officers who had been killed two weeks earlier in an ambush attack in Brooklyn.

Arkansas, Indiana governors sign amended religious freedom laws | 2 April 2015 | The governors of Arkansas and Indiana on Thursday quickly signed revised versions of their respective religious freedom laws, hoping to quell a national uproar that united business leaders and gay rights activists who fought the measures as potentially discriminatory. Proponents of the laws argued that they were needed to protect religious freedom, while critics complained that the laws would allow discrimination against gays and lesbians who could be deprived of goods and services in the name of religious belief. Although neither of the original laws mentioned gays or lesbians, many of their conservative backers have opposed same-sex marriage.
