The Great American Spy Caper

Poor James Clapper. The Director of National Intelligence -- a superfluous position born of the Intelligence Community's failures on 9/11 -- was again dragged before Capitol Hill, this time to explain the highly embarrassing revelations that the NSA had been monitoring the personal communications of allied state leaders.

Be Afraid: New Homeland Security Chief OK'd Drone Strikes on Americans

If the ubiquitous voice of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano in the metro (or Walmart, etc) demanding that you say something if you see something wasn't frightening enough, if TSA's cancer rays and gropings were not outrageous enough, if Homeland Security military vehicles on US soil were not disgusting enough, Obama has a real treat in store for you.

Bravo Malala!

It was supposed to be an approval ratings-boosting photo-op with the youngest ever nominee for a Nobel Peace Prize, but as any parent knows kids can be hard to control. They have a tendency to blurt out inconvenient truths at the most inconvenient of moments.
