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. But this gift to Obama’s Illinois homeboys wasn’t just a run-of-the-mill campaign favor.
Obama’s unilateral and unprecedented decision steamrolled over bipartisan congressional opposition to the purchase. That opposition dates back to 2009, when the White House first floated the idea of using Thomson to house jihadi enemy combatants detained in Cuba. As you may recall, the scheme caused a national uproar. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), chairman of the House appropriations subcommittee overseeing the Justice Department’s budget, blocked the administration from using unspent DOJ funds for the deal. With bipartisan support, Congress passed a law barring the transfer of Gitmo detainees to Thomson or any other civilian prison.

China’s People’s Liberation Army has been conducting live ammunition drills in the East China Sea during the last week.

The fleet’s main forces, including dozens of warships, fighter aircraft, submarines and missile units, carried out 16 combat training programs ranging from anti-missile techniques to searching for and attacking submarines, according to a captain of one of the warships.

This is in response to the Japanese government signing a contract last Tuesday to purchase the Diaoyu or Senkaku Islands, although there is a dispute as to who is the true owner of the islands.

Text of the message :Yesterday, the people of Iran, defying Khameneis warnings, went to streets in Tehran and other cities to press with their demand for regime change.
On Khameneis orders, the suppressive forces opened fire on the demonstrators. Dozens were killed. Thousands more were wounded or arrested.
Their only crime was demanding freedom. The world witnessed the final moments of a young girl, Neda, who was shot by the Guards in north Tehran. Her father was telling her in those final moments have no fear Neda! Today, the people have named the street as Neda.
With yesterdays crime, the mullahs regime entered an irreversible phase.At the same time, Iranians abroad, held a massive gathering in Paris in solidarity with the Iranian peoples uprisings.
NINETY THOUSAND Iranians echoed the slogans of those in Iran: death to dictator and long live freedom.
The Iranian peoples uprisings over the past week dashed the illusion about the strength and stability of mullahs regime.It clearly showed that the Iranian people are ready for democratic change.
The Iranian people, at home and abroad, have the same demand: an end to religious dictatorship. The only solution for Iran is democratic change, dismantling all suppressive forces and holding a free and fair election under UN supervision. I therefore, call on the UN Security Council, governments and international forums to the following:
1.Reject the mullahs’ sham election and appointment of Ahmadinejad. Compel the regime to accept a free and fair election under the UN supervision based on peoples sovereignty and not based on religious dictatorship.
2.Suspend all political and diplomatic ties with the mullahs regime until the suppression is completely stopped.
3.Impose a trade, diplomatic, arms and technology embargo on the regime.
4.Urge the UN Security Council to refer the crimes committed by the leaders of the regime, in particular Khamenei, to an international tribunal.
5.Impose a foreign travel ban on the regimes leaders

 

 

The presidential campaign has featured plenty of talk about terrorism in the Middle East, but one lawmaker is warning that the federal government is ignoring a growing Hezbollah presence in Mexico, with the Lebanese terror group increasingly joining forces with drug cartels.
