In a comparison of state's contributions as a percentage of the annual required contribution, from fiscal year 2001 to 2013, New Jersey came dead last at 38 percent.

Ferguson, Missouri police chief Thomas Jackson resigns | 11 March 2015 |The embattled police chief of Ferguson, Missouri, is to resign a week after his department was accused of racial bias in a scathing report by the US government, he announced on Wednesday. Thomas Jackson told colleagues in a resignation letter that "with profound sadness" he would quit as police chief effective 19 March. Jackson, 58, is the sixth senior Ferguson official to lose his job since the Department of Justice last week sharply criticised the city's criminal justice system.

March 12, 2015 by walden9

No, *This* is ISIS: 'Dirty Brigades': US-Trained and Armed Iraqi Forces Investigated for War Crimes | 11 March 2015 | U.S.-trained and armed Iraqi military units, the key to the American strategy 'against' ISIS [-CIA-SIS], are under investigation for committing some of the same atrocities as the terror group, American and Iraqi officials told ABC News. Some Iraqi units have already been cut off from U.S. assistance over "credible" human rights violations, according to a senior military official on the Pentagon's Joint Staff. The investigation, being conducted by the Iraqi government, was launched after officials were confronted with numerous allegations of "war crimes," based in part on dozens of ghastly videos and still photos that appear to show uniformed soldiers from some of Iraq's most elite units and militia members massacring civilians, torturing and executing prisoners, and displaying severed heads.

But they have so far not made much progress in Tikrit's south and west. The operation to retake the hometown of Saddam Hussein is the biggest offensive yet by the Iraqi government.

High-risk terrorism inmates on hunger strike over language ban: claim | 11 Mar 2015 | (Au) Relatives of high-risk terrorism inmates being held in the state's most notorious prison claim the prisoners are on a hunger strike in protest at a new rule preventing them from speaking Arabic.

On Sunday, NSW Attorney-General Brad Hazzard announced the policy banning 13 "extreme high-risk" terrorism inmates from speaking any language other than English during family visits, phone calls and in letters. All visits have also been restricted to non-contact, and previously approved visitors are being vetted again.

Language restrictions on NSW prisoners deemed 'high risk' despite no known terrorist threat | 8 Mar 2015 | (AU) A restriction on prisoners speaking languages other than English has been placed on "high-risk" inmates in NSW despite the state government acknowledging there is no known terrorist threat coming from inside the cells. Attorney-General Brad Hazzard said on Sunday that 13 prisoners, who are linked to terrorism, had been identified as "extreme high risk restricted" and would have language restrictions placed upon them. The restrictions are designed to prevent the prisoners from co-ordinating or inciting terrorism from jail, Mr Hazzard said.

FBI testimony in Boston Marathon bomb trial pulled apart by defence

False flag crumbling under idiocy and lies by FBI: FBI testimony in Boston Marathon bomb trial pulled apart by defence --Long morning of embarrassment for the FBI as agent misidentified Twitter account photo of Grozny as Mecca and tweets falsely attributed to Tsarnaev were revealed to be jokes from Comedy Central TV shows and pop lyrics | 10 Mar 2015 | Sparks flew in a federal courtroom in Boston on Tuesday in the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev – the younger and only survivor of two brothers accused of perpetrating the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing – as the testimony of an FBI agent and witness for the prosecution collapsed under cross-examination by the defence. Tsarnaev's defence attorney Miriam Conrad surgically deconstructed testimony given late on Monday by an FBI agent that looked at Tsarnaev's Twitter accounts – and embarrassed the FBI by showing them to have misidentified a picture of a mosque in Grozny, Chechnya, as the Muslim holy site of Mecca. [LOL! *Morons.*] The exposure of that mistake was just part of a long morning of embarrassment for the FBI, as Conrad poked gaping holes in their investigation into Tsarnaev's online persona. FBI special agent Steven Kimball was forced to admit that he did not know that several of the tweets the prosecution had highlighted yesterday – to damning effect – as pointing towards Tsarnaev's radicalisation and violence were actually lyrics from pop songs.

Mohammad Javad Zarif said the letter lacks "legal validity" and shows that the signatories of the letter are "ignorant of international law."

Letter by Republican Senators to Iran is 'unusual' and 'dangerous,' Obama, Biden and other Democrats say | 9 Mar 2015 | Senate Republicans who sent a letter to Iran's leaders in an unprecedented attempt to undermine nuclear talks are siding with America's enemies, President Obama and Senate Democrats charged Monday. "It's somewhat ironic to see some members of Congress wanting to make common cause with the hard-liners in Iran," Obama told reporters Monday. "It's an unusual coalition." Senate Democrats went further. "Let's be clear," Minority Leader Harry Reid said. "Republicans are undermining our commander-in-chief while empowering the ayatollahs."

Supreme Court rejects cases on Guantanamo prisoner treatment

March 9, 2015 by legitgov

Supreme Court rejects cases on Guantanamo prisoner treatment | 9 Mar 2015 | The Supreme Court on Monday spurned two appeals involving U.S. treatment of Guantanamo Bay detainees prisoners, barring a Syrian man from suing the United States over alleged torture and blocking the release of images purported to show evidence of a Saudi man's mistreatment. The justices in both cases left intact lower-court rulings in favor of the U.S. government...Separately, the court handed a victory to the CIA by declining to take up a case in which a Washington-based civil liberties group, the Center for Constitutional Rights, was seeking access to videos and photographs of another prisoner, Saudi citizen Mohammed al-Qahtani.
