By |

The protest gained some traction late Wednesday afternoon when Moss ordered the Justice Department to file publicly a redacted copy of the secret filing or “show cause why” that isn’t possible. He gave the government until April 26 to do that.

Saudis snub Obama on Riyadh arrival amid growing tension – CNNPolitics.com

By |

(CNN)President Barack Obama received a chilly reception from Saudi Arabia’s leaders as he landed in Riyadh Wednesday, a clear sign of the cooling relations between once-close allies amid regional upheaval and dropping oil prices.

When Obama touched down in Riyadh shortly after 1 p.m. local time, there were no kisses with the kingdom’s ruler as President George W. Bush once exchanged. The Saudi government dispatched the governor of Riyadh rather than a senior-level royal to shake Obama’s hand, a departure from the scene at the airport earlier in the day when King Salman was shown on state television greeting the leaders of other Gulf nations on the tarmac.

Saudi Arabia government linked to 9/11 terror attacks in newly released evidence | Daily Mail Online

By |

“Officials have revealed that the flight certificate of Al-Qaeda bomb maker Ghassan Al-Sharbi was discovered hidden in an envelope from the Saudi embassy in Washington when they arrested him in 2002.

Al-Sharbi is believed to have learned how to fly with the hijackers but did not take part in the attacks. Shortly before his arrest, he buried a bundle of documents, which is believed to have included the certificate.

The cache was discovered by US authorities and details, written in a memo known as Document 17 in 2003, were released without fanfare by investigators last year. They were only brought to the public’s attention when an activist discovered them and wrote about them on his website earlier this week.

The release has fuelled concerns the Saudi government may have been linked to the coordinated attacks, which killed nearly 3,000 people.”

Definitive timeline of what Ted Cruz said and did in the 2013 immigration debate.

By |

Ted Cruz denies that during the 2013 Senate debate over an immigration reform bill he ever supported a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants. He also claims that an amendment he offered, which would have permanently barred these immigrants from citizenship, was designed to kill the bill. Is he telling the truth? Here’s a detailed timeline of what Cruz said and did during the debate, with links to videos and other contemporaneous evidence.

Do Ted Cruz’s 2013 Statements Matter?

By |

Does Ted Cruz’s Slipperiness Matter?

There is an easy way to conclude Ted Cruz didn’t lie on the debate stage Tuesday night; conclude that he lied throughout the spring of 2013.

The problem with posing as a bill supporter in an effort to insert a poison bill – and performing the role with great passion, at great length, in front of many audiences – is that afterwards, people may not be so convinced that it was all an act.
