Appeals court won't order release of 'torture report'

Appeals court won't order torture reportA federal appeals court has upheld a lower court ruling that the Obama administration need not release the unabridged version of a Senate Intelligence Committee report that sharply criticized the Central Intelligence Agency’s treatment of terror suspects aggressively interrogated in the years after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

A unanimous three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday that the Senate had not relinquished control over the report when it sent copies of the document to various executive branch agencies, like the CIA and the Justice Department. Therefore, those agencies were under no obligation to fulfill Freedom of Information Act requests for the full report, Judge Harry Edwards wrote on behalf of Judges David Tatel and Sri Srinivasan.


Declassified documents detail 9/11 commission's inquiry into Saudi Arabia

Saudi connection to 9/11 probedInvestigators for the 9/11 commission would later describe the scene in Saudi Arabia as chilling.

They took seats in front of a former Saudi diplomat who, many on the commission’s staff believed, had been a ringleader of a Saudi government spy network inside the US that gave support to at least two of the 9/11 hijackers in California in the year before the 2001 attacks.

At first, the witness, 32-year-old Fahad al-Thumairy, dressed in traditional white robes and headdress, answered the questions calmly, his hands folded in front of him. But when the interrogation became confrontational, he began to squirm, literally, pushing himself back and forth in the chair, folding and unfolding his arms, as he was pressed about his ties to two Saudi hijackers who had lived in southern California before 9/11.

AL Governor Signs Bill Regulating Abortion Clinics Like Sex Offenders

Alabama governor signs anti abortion billAlabama’s Republican governor, Robert Bentley, signed a bill into law on Thursday that will regulate abortion clinics like sex offenders.

The bill, SB 205, could shut down two clinics in which the vast majority of the state’s abortions occur. One of the clinics, Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives in Huntsville, was temporarily closed in June 2014 as a result of Trap (targeted restriction on abortion provider) laws in the state when it was determined that the facility could not be retrofitted to comply with the laws’ building code regulations.
