Vowing not to be 'chumps,' commission subpoenas Goldman's records

Vowing not to be 'chumps,' commission subpoenas Goldman's records 07 Jun 2010 Leaders of a government commission accused Goldman Sachs Monday of "stonewalling" their inquiry into causes of the financial crisis and said the panel has issued a subpoena to compel the Wall Street giant to produce documents and access to key executives. In a conference call with reporters, Democratic Chairman Phil Angelides and Republican Vice Chair Bill Thomas of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission rebuked Goldman for what they described as "abysmal" behavior unmistakably aimed at stalling the panel for months. "In our view, this has been a very deliberate effort over time to run out the clock," Angelides said, referring to the commission's mandate to complete its sweeping examination and submit a report to Congress by December. "We're not going to let the American people be played for chumps here."

Charles Rangel slams President Obama for being like Dick Cheney - fighting in Iraq only for oil 06 Jun 2010 Rep.

Bush Administration Tortured, Experimented On Detainees: Report

Did the Bush Administration Experiment on Detainees? Not only were terrorism suspects tortured, they were also used as human guinea pigs, a new report alleges.

And despite the horrific image, that little bird -- a laughing gull -- is lucky, according to Jay Holcomb, executive director of the International Bird Rescue Research Center, where the creature is being treated. Holcomb tells NPR’s Michele Norris that the bird was rescued early -- "so even though it's covered in oil and it's tired, it's in relatively decent shape."

BP will end up paying about 700 dollars in fines, fifteen years hence.] 04 Jun 2010 If the Obama administration is serious about holding BP and others responsible for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill [which they aren't], it can start with the federal Clean Water Act, which could allow the federal government to collect as much as $4.7 billion in civil fines just for the oil that's spilled so far. Even if the courts allow the fines, however, there are no guarantees that the money would go to the cleanup and economic recovery of the Gulf Coast, according to legal experts.
