    House members to sue Obama administration over Libya mission

    Source: CNN A positive development. I am in favor of US involvement of Libya, but not the extent or the flaunting of the law involved in the ordeal. The administration was rather bold in openly stating that it intended to ignore the War Powers Act, and I feared that it would go unchallenged...

    Information from Gitmo detainees led to bin Laden's death

    NYT and MSNBC are both reporting that information gained from Gitmo detainees about a courier of bin Laden's was the key to locating him. Does this change anybody's mind about the value of Guantánamo Bay? It always seemed to me to be a spring of anti-American sentiment with little actionable...

    Polls getting gamed

    Seems that there's some bot or something similar gaming our polls. There are a few polls that instantly got 100+ votes, all for one option. An example is the DREAM Act thread poll. I just wanted to make the admins aware if they aren't already

    Michael Mann in his own words on the stolen CRU emails

    Source [DeSmog Blog | Michael Mann in his own words on the stolen CRU emails] The responses are rather full so I don't want to quote them on this page. Just follow the link. It looks like just what I've been hearing - completely mundane private communication about very specific things. He...

    Wikileaks releases 9/11 Pager Texts

    Wikileaks is releasing a half a million pager texts that were sent between 3AM 9/11 and 3AM 9/12 in New York and DC. Skimming through it's mostly technical junk and what isn't is about what you'd expect. Still, it's a candid view of arguably the most important event in our time, and I thought...

    New medical marijuana policy issued

    Source [Yahoo! News (AP) | New medical marijuana policy issued] This is definitely one policy that should be decided on the state level rather than the federal level. I see no federal interest in the matter, so it makes no sense to fight the states if they feel strongly enough to disobey the...

    Legal guns and crime
