Doomed flight was taking Brazilian team to game of their lives

Braxilian soccer team members lost in crashThese were going to be the games of their lives for players on the humble Brazilian club Chapecoense.

They'd reached the two-game final of the Copa Sudamericana, the continent's No. 2 club tournament; as near the top the world's soccer pyramid as most of the itinerate players — and its coach — were likely to reach.

U.S. Lawsuit Aims to Hold 2 Contractors Accountable for C.I.A. Torture

Suleil Abdullah SalimNearly 15 years after the United States adopted a program to interrogate terrorism suspects using techniques now widely considered to be torture, no one involved in helping craft it has been held legally accountable. Even as President Obama acknowledged that the United States “tortured some folks,” his administration declined to prosecute any government officials.

But now, one lawsuit has gone further than any other in American courts to fix blame.
