Top FBI Lockerbie investigator disputes CFP story

“Proper judicial procedure is simply impossible if political interests and intelligence services—from whichever side—succeed in interfering in the actual conduct of a court… The purpose of intelligence services—from whichever side—lies in secret action and deception, not in the search for truth. Justice and the rule of law can never be achieved without transparency.”
—Hans Koechler, U.N. observer at the Zeist trial

The Muslim Brotherhood: An Association for Jihadists

One of the more clandestine groups in radical Islam is the Muslim Brotherhood. Originating in Egypt in 1928, the group has been outlawed in Egypt yet it members hold seats in the Egyptian government. That this radically fundamentalist Islamist group is the parent organization to some of the most violent terror groups operating today. It thrives as a pseudo professional association for terrorists while feigning legitimacy as a political movement. So, what is the Muslim Brotherhood and why should every American be concerned about its activities both within the United States and around the world?

The past as prologue

Much has been written about the madness of Ahmadinejad in New York. But as important as the condemnations of this crypto-Hitler are; as crucial the outrage at the UN for letting him speak is; as vital the denunciations of Columbia University for inviting him to lecture will become to our institutional memory of conscience; historical moments like these command us to take an intellectual step backward and try to figure out how we got into this, again, and where are we headed.

Living life on the Internet

They’re all still down there, out of sight and all but out of mind—hundreds of millions of miles of hair-thin strands of glass, uniquely strung beneath the streets of every city, under our homes, suburbs, deserts, and strewn across the ocean floor. It’s enough optical fibre to wrap around the earth 4,000 times (scary statistics), with each strand capable of blasting library stacks of information across the globe at the speed of light. And almost all of it sits empty, dark and idle—an unseen monument to every unfulfilled promise of the Internet. A statistical reality people can’t even begin to comprehend.
