You’ve heard by now the Haskell story right? In case you haven’t let’s start there. Kurt Haskell is an attorney. He and his wife were in Amsterdam that day after a safari and Kurt witnessed the underwear bomber (Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab) before the flight being aided by what Haskell described to be an older Indian gentleman who was well dressed. Many news organizations have interviewed Mr. Haskell and he has told his story in it’s entirety but there is one thing all of these news organizations have left out in reporting it.

US intelligence sources have confirmed Iran's assertions that a document published by a British daily about Tehran's nuclear program is a fabrication. According to a former CIA official, US intelligence agents have found that the document, which was published by the Times of London on December 14, was fabricated by Israel or Britain, the Inter Press Service (IPS) reported on Monday. The IPS report was penned by renowned investigative journalist Gareth Porter. CounterPunch: The Iranian Nuke Forgeries: CIA Determines Documents Were Fabricated.

Israeli police on Tuesday arrested nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu for violating "a ban on speaking to foreigners", a police statement said. Vanunu was jailed as a traitor [Vanunu is a hero] in 1986 and served an 18-year sentence after discussing his work as a technician at Israel's Dimona nuclear reactor with a British newspaper, an interview that led experts to conclude the facility had produced fissile material for as many as 200 atomic warheads. WaPo: Israeli police arrest nuclear whistleblower Vanunu. BBC: Israeli police have arrested Mordechai Vanunu, a technician who spent 18 years in prison for revealing details of Israel's clandestine nuclear programme. AWIP: What Americans Need to Know about Mordechai Vanunu. His lawyer said he was detained over a romance with a Norwegian woman rather than for revealing nuclear secrets. "Vanunu was arrested (for) a relationship between a man and a woman, with a Norwegian citizen," attorney Avigdor Feldman told reporters. "He is not being accused of giving any secrets. She is not interested in nuclear business -- she's interested in Mordechai Vanunu (and he) is probably interested in her," Feldman said. A Jerusalem court ordered Vanunu, who was taken into police custody on Monday, put under house arrest for three days pending an indictment, police said. The Israelis murder women and children on a regular basis, arresting a man for his romantic involvement is not surprising.

Once upon a time there was a black woman; her name was Rosa Parks. There were racially discriminating laws in the United States, but she continued to sit on the bus even when she was told to vacate her seat for a white person. She was arrested, which set off a process whose end saw the abolishment of racial segregation on American buses. How is it possible that one little black woman, a dressmaker by profession, could change history simply because she remained sitting? Her protest was stronger than any demonstration, op-ed piece or Knesset vote. She opted for the natural choice; that is why she was triumphant.

Native Americans say the purchases will help protect their culture and way of life by preserving burial grounds and areas where sacred rituals are held. They also provide land for farming, timber and other efforts to make the tribes self-sustaining. Tribes put more than 840,000 acres – or roughly the equivalent of the state of Rhode Island – into trust from 1998 to 2007, according to information The Associated Press obtained from the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs under the Freedom of Information Act.

Phoenix and federal authorities detained two Middle Eastern men accused by a passenger of acting suspiciously aboard a Phoenix-bound plane Saturday evening. The passenger told authorities the two men, described as being Middle Eastern, were speaking "loudly" in their native language. The passenger then saw a suicide bomber on the DVD version of the movie "The Kingdom," and one of the men reportedly got up to use the lavatory when the fasten-seatbelt sign was lit. "The totality" of those three occurrences led this passenger to believe this was suspicious, Johnson said. An investigation by the FBI found no evidence of a terroristic threat and the men were later released without charges.

An investigation into an overnight Israel Defense Forces operation in the West Bank city of Nablus early Saturday suggests that Israeli soldiers may have executed two of the three Palestinian militants who were killed, the left wing rights group B'Tselem said Saturday.

According to B'Tselem, in two of the three cases the troops behaved as if they were preparing for an execution, not an arrest. Relatives and eyewitnesses told B'Tselem that the two were unarmed and did not attempt to flee, and that the soldiers weren't trying to stop them, but rather shot them from close range once their identity was revealed. There were no witnesses to the shooting of the third man.
