Sen. Durbin told a local Illinois paper that “the decision to move ahead came directly from President Barack Obama” and that he had secured the green light during a discussion on Air Force One earlier in the spring.

THE security service MI5 has accused China of bugging and burgling UK business
executives and setting up “honeytraps” in a bid to blackmail them into
