The time has arrived where we must understand the realities of the dark forces amongst us.

Letter from David Cameron and other G20 leader[s] to French President Nicolas Sarkozy

We have not yet mastered the challenges of the crisis. Global imbalances are rising again. External risks to the stability of our banks and our economies are reaching pre-crisis levels. And volatile and high energy prices are hurting our citizens and acting as a drain on world growth.

At the same time, the confidence of citizens, businesses and markets has been damaged due to the lack of visible political will: this in itself is holding back the recovery. Over the summer, the difficulties encountered in finding a durable solution to sovereign debt problems have further affected confidence.

[Wadah] Khanfar did...balk at the wording of one of the DIA [Defense Intelligence Agency] reports, which states that the news organization had violated a previous agreement with U.S. officials.

That agreement was “non-paper,” Khanfar said, adding that Al Jazeera could not “sign agreements of this nature, and to have it here like this in writing.”

Latvia teaches austerity pain and gain to Greece

the Baltic state's experience demonstrates the downside in terms of people's suffering.

Former nurse Rita Lalina, who had to take food handouts, was such a person. The first visit to a soup kitchen was difficult, she said.

"There were so many alcoholics and homeless. The smell was hardly bearable. But now they moved the kitchen to ... a new place and there are other people like me coming," said Lalina, 34, a nurse who is on maternity leave.

Lalina said she had her nurse's salary cut in 2009 by almost 30 percent to 160 lats ($308) a month.

Her husband kept his job despite 20 percent unemployment, but the family survives on 220 lats a month after housing costs, hence the soup kitchen visits.

He [Burhanuddin Rabbani] was the most prominent surviving leader of the ethnic Tajik-dominated Northern Alliance of fighters and politicians.

Massoud directly controlled the Panjshir, some other parts of Parwan and Thakar province. Some parts of Badakshan were under his influence while others were controlled by Burhanuddin Rabbani with whom Massoud had some non-violent disputes. (Badakshan is the home region of Rabbani.)

Statement of Islamic Emirate’s spokesman regarding the killing of Rabbani

On later Tuesday (Sep. 20), the head of the so called ‘Higher Peace Council’ of the Kabul administration, Burhanuddin Rabbani was killed in Kabul city’s Wazir Akbar Khan area.

Since we have not yet completed our investigation into the matter therefore our stance is that of not elaborating on the issue any further.

And all those claims in which we have been sited [cited] by news agencies as a source, are baseless and we want to reiterate once again that we presently cannot comment on the incident any further.
