Tech giants rally behind Apple in FBI fight

The Hill

Getty Images By Julian Hattem – 02/26/16 09:06 AM EST Major tech companies including Microsoft, Yahoo, Twitter and Facebook are coming to Apple’s aid in what could be a landmark legal battle against the FBI. The companies are preparing to file friend-of-the-court briefs in the case, which they have described as a line in the sand against the U.S. government. On Thursday, Microsoft president Brad Smith said Congress should decide the scope of American law enforcement powers — not a federal court. “The real concern here is actually the law and the implications for the future,” he said, pledging to file a brief in the…

Twenty-four Ukrainian tourists deprived of US visas half-way to Miami

Pravda

Twenty-four Ukrainian tourists were deprived of their US visas halfway to Miami. The passengers were  withdrawn from the flight and sent back to Kiev. “When they called this morning, they said that the Consul of Ukraine in France came to them and said that there were consulate offices of all countries in France, so they had the right to cancel any visa. We do not understand how this could happen. Nearly all of them had ten-year visas. The tour is very expensive, and no one is going to reimburse with them, of course,” a friend of one of the tourists told a…

An unarmed Minuteman III ICBM launches during an operational test from Vandenberg Air Force Base California

The U.S. military test-fired its second intercontinental ballistic missile in a week on Thursday night, seeking to demonstrate its nuclear arms capacity at a time of rising strategic tensions with Russia and North Korea. The unarmed Minuteman III missile roared out of a silo at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California late at night, raced across the sky at speeds of up to 15,000 mph (24,000 kph) and landed a half hour later in a…

By Rebecca Kheel – 02/25/16 04:10 PM EST The era of trying to work with Russia is over, the top U.S. commander in Europe said Thursday while arguing for the rebuilding of U.S. forces in that region. “Russia does not want to challenge the agreed rules of the international order,” Gen. Philip Breedlove told the House Armed Services Committee. “It wants to rewrite them.” Breedlove was on Capitol Hill defending the Pentagon’s budget request for fiscal 2017, which includes a fourfold increase in funding for the European Reassurance Initiative (ERI) to deter an aggressive Russia.The increase would bring the initiative’s funding to $3.4 billion.

File picture shows former Israeli Prime Minister Olmert leaving the Tel Aviv District Court

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert released a video statement insisting on his innocence on Monday, before arriving at prison in a motorcade to begin a 19-month sentence for corruption. Olmert is the first former head of government in Israel to go to prison. During his premiership from 2006 to 2009, he was internationally credited with working toward a peace accord with the Palestinians, until graft scandals forced him to step down. “As prime minister I was charged with the highest responsibility of safeguarding Israel’s citizens. Today I am the one to be locked behind bars,” he said in a…

Break in ‘unholy’ cold case: Police arrest former beauty queen’s priest in her 1960 killing

Washington Post

Fifty-six years ago, a young schoolteacher went to church during Holy Week and never came home. The next day, a few of her possessions were found scattered along the road outside the local Sacred Heart Church, as Texas Monthly recounted. One high-heeled shoe, a patent-leather handbag, a piece of crumpled white lace. The following week, her body was found, fully dressed and badly bruised, retrieved from a canal in which someone had left her to decompose, her corpse washed clean of evidence. An autopsy found that she had been raped while comatose. This was Irene Garza, a 25-year-old, dark-haired belle of…

The Texas supreme court-appointed board of disciplinary appeals said Sebesta’s behavior in…

Obama unveils $4.1T election-year budget proposal

Getty Images

By Sarah Ferris and Jordan Fabian – 02/09/16 11:00 AM EST President Obama on Tuesday unveiled the last budget of his presidency, a $4.1 trillion plan that reflects his desire to set the agenda for his final months in office and beyond. The proposal, Obama’s costliest to date, includes a litany of long-shot progressive ideas that have little chance of becoming law in the Republican-controlled Congress. Leaders of the House and Senate budget panels have already said they will not even give the document a hearing. Obama’s final budget is also a political document unveiled on the same day as the New Hampshire primary. The…
