‘You hate America': Cenk Uygur rips Kansas Repubs who fired woman for not going to church

Young Turks host Cenk Uygur blasted Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) and his office on Thursday for allegedly firing a woman for not attending a church.

“You love religion so much you want even more restriction — you want everybody to follow whatever religion the people believe in. You got Iran, you got Saudi Arabia. You got choices, man,” Uygur said. “One of your choices is not Kansas, in the United States of America. Here, we do not do religious tests for office. You know who decided that? Our founding fathers, when they put it in the Constitution. If you don’t like it, get the f*ck out of the country. Leave. Go home right now, wherever that is for you. America’s not home for you. You hate America.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the best of my knowledge and belief, this firing was completely illegal on Constitutional grounds.

This woman has one hell of a lawsuit here, and I hope that she will find a pro bono attorney who will point out, in the lawsuit, that Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has absolutely no right to attempt to force someone into a house of worship.

It is hubris, above and beyond the pale, that Kobach believed he personally had the right to force this decision on this woman.

And I say this as a Methodist Christian: faith should never be forced on anyone, like a mandatory vaccine; it should be an invitation, and solely on the basis of the willingness of the individual find a spiritual resonance with a faith community.

Location, Sensors, Voice, Photos?! Spotify Just Got Real Creepy With The Data It Collects On You

Music streaming market leader Spotify has decided that it wants to know a lot more about you. It wants to be able to access the sensor information on your phone so it can determine whether you’re walking, running or standing still. It wants to know your GPS coordinates, grab photos from your phone and look through your contacts too. And it may share that information with its partners, so a whole load of companies could know exactly where you are and what you’re up to.

This has all been made apparent by a rather significant update to the Spotify privacy policy, pushed out to users today. Upon opening the Spotify app up this morning, your reporter was greeted with a request to agree to the new conditions. A quick comparison with the previous privacy policy using the Wayback Machine showed some major changes had been made. I’m now considering whether the £10 I pay for a premium membership is worth it, given the amount of privacy I’d be giving away by consenting.

The test for justice – indict Hillary

Once upon a time a unique Republic was a country where the rule of law maintained at least the appearance of constitutional government. The role of the US Attorney General was based upon enforcing accountability for government officials who broke statues. America like all other countries always had their share of crooks and thieves in public office. In spite of this, reasonably clear standards for prosecution were honored and appropriate indictments would follow. Politicizing the Department of Justice was not the measure of filing criminal charges.

US government challenges in court property claims of Hasidic Jewish group to Russia

The US government has challenged at a hearing on Thursday the property claims of the Hasidic Jewish organization to Russia amounting to $43.7 million in the case of the so-called Schneerson Collection and said it favored the settlement of the situation "through diplomatic negotiations" with Moscow.
The government representatives noted that the organization’s motion could not lead to the solution of the problem. According to their estimates, such a move by a court would be fraught with serious complications in relations with Russian and would set a precedent that could be dangerous for the American diplomacy in general. Nathan Swinton, a Trial Attorney with the United States Department of Justice, has said that the US Administration continues to proceed from the premise that returning the Schneerson Collection to the United States is only possible through diplomatic talks with Russia.

Giving War a Chance – Peace is almost always an alternative—but you won’t hear that from US politicians or news media

On August 5, US President Barack Obama compared the rhetoric employed by opponents of the P5+1/Iran nuclear negotiations to that used by the Bush administration during the run-up to America’s catastrophic war in Iraq, noting (Washington Post, 8/5/15) that “many of the same people who argued for the war in Iraq are now making the case against the Iran nuclear deal.”

Why US Police Are Out of Control

America is clearly an outlier when it comes to police brutality. According to The Guardian’s highly useful “Counted” website, U.S. police kill more people in a typical day than police in England and Wales kill in an entire year. Where police in Stockton, California, killed three people in the first five months of 2015, police in Iceland, which has roughly the same population, have killed just one person since the modern Icelandic republic was founded in 1944.

Pakistan turning away from US, warming up to Moscow — WSJ

Comedian George Carlin is known as one of the most controversial and outspoken entertainers of his time and, as far as the government is concerned, he could have possibly been a terrorist.

He went into great detail about corruption in government and business.

During the 1978 Supreme Court case, FCC v Pacifica Foundation, the government cited Carlin’s work as an example of profanity. They used his “Seven Dirty Words” segment to show the type of language that was being used in records and broadcasts. However, the government’s interest in his work did not stop there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight. People who are funny, and tell the truth about this government in a funny way, have been designated "terrorists" by the American government since 1969?!?

Carlin was far more than just a comedian; he, in many ways, was a prophet, and looking at the complete dysfunction of US Federal government , he was absolutely right on so many levels.

here’s my real concern. The $8.5 trillion is just the bit that the Pentagon can’t account for. That’s far from all the money it was given. U.S. military spending, spread across several departments with the biggest chunk of it to the Department of so-called Defense, is upwards of $1 trillion every year. Over 17 years at the current rate, which rose sharply after 2001, that’s upwards of $17 trillion.

Imagine that the Pentagon accounted for every dime of that missing $8.5 trillion, named every profiteer, documented the life history of every man, woman, and child killed, and passed the strictest audit by an independent team of 1,000 accountants reporting to 35 Nobel Laureates — if that happened, I ask you, exactly what difference would it make?

East Ukraine's Spartak shelled for 12 hours — local authorities

"They [Ukrainian forces] started shelling in the evening yesterday, as soon as it got dark. The shells hit the suburbs of the settlement, the field and the cemetery," an administration spokesperson told Donetsk News Agency.
According to local authorities, Ukrainian forces shelled Spartak from tanks from the settlements of Avdeyevka and Opytnoye. The information on whether anyone was injured in the shellings in being verified.
The settlement of Spartak near the Donetsk airport is shelled by Ukrainian forces almost daily. Most infrastructure has been destroyed in the settlement, and it is hardly possible to restore it any time soon.

Red Cross fails to examine east Ukraine militia fighters tortured in captivity — DPR

"During the largest prisoner swap on December 25, 2014, when our prisoners were exchanged in a terrible condition, with signs of abuse and violence, ICRC representatives were not even present there, even though this is within the scope of their competence," she said. "At that time, 200 people were released from captivity, and none of them was examined by the Red Cross."
According to Morozova, to date about 600 people who were recently in Ukrainian custody have not been examined by the ICRC mission either. "I have video footage and written interviews of these 200 people who were held captive, so please take and examine them. But all this remains not even at the stage of negotiations with the ICRC, but at the stage of talking," she added.

Ukraine breaks ceasefire in Donbas 26 times in 24 hours — DPR defense ministry

More than 130 mines, shells and sabots have been launched at the DPR’s populated localities, the ministry clarified.
"The Ukraine side has violated the ceasefire for 26 times over the past 24 hours. Forty artillery shells and rocket projectiles; 38 mines with a caliber of 82 mm and 120 mm and 15 sabots have been launched at the republic’s territory over that period of time," the Donetsk news agency quoted the DPR defense ministry as saying.
According to the ministry, Ukrainian artillery shelled Staromikhailovka, Oktyabr, Gorlovka, Belaya Kamenka, Styla, Spartak and Novolapsa. Donetsk’s Kuibyshevsky neighborhood and the territory of Donetsk airport also came under fire.

In fact, via their studies, they found that the screenings really only saved 1 in 1000 women who died. On the contrary, the failure of the process, or unsafe side effects, were the actual greater concern.

Marijuana Kills Cancer, Says National Cancer Institute

The institute recently updated its ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ page about marijuana to include various studies revealing how cannabis “may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow” while also protecting normal, healthy cells.

“A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells,” the NCI stated. “Studies in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So Marijuana must be banned so that caner patients have no choice but to buy the very expensive radiation and chemotherapy treatments sold by the medical industrial complex. They don;t work as well, but then the whole point is maximizing profit from ineffective treatments, not actually curing anyone!

Is the New ‘Law of War Manual’ Actually ‘Hitlerian’?

The Obama U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has quietly issued its important Law of War Manual, and, unlike its predecessor, the 1956 U.S. Army Field Manual, which was not designed to approve of the worst practices by both the United States and its enemies in World War II, or after 9/11, this new document has been alleged specifically to do just that: to allow such attacks as the United States did on Dresden, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki, and in Iraq, and elsewhere.

How & Why the U.S. Media Do Propaganda Against Russia

The owners of U.S. newsmedia know that in order to serve their fellow U.S. aristocrats who want to kick out Russia’s current leader, Vladimir Putin, so as to enable them to buy Russia’s natural resources (and highly educated work-forces) cheap via “privatizations,” their PR campaign for their fellow aristocrats (their major advertisers) must be led by ‘respectable’ newsmedia, such as Foreign Policy magazine, and not by blatantly right-wing, obviously trashy, ones, such as Fox News. Overtly conservative, nationalistic, ‘news’ media wouldn’t be able to sell to anyone who isn’t already on-board with privatizations of government assets as being a fundamental “free market” principle (i.e, equating fascism — the actual originator of privatizations — with constituting ‘capitalism,’ confusing the two systems as being one-and-the-same). So: not only the fascist media are anti-Putin, but media that pretend not to be are also.

2mn people in California, Midwest drink uranium-contaminated water – study

Almost 2 million people in California and the Midwest live on aquifer sites which have up to 180 times the safe level of uranium, according to a recent study by US researchers.

Some 275,000 groundwater samples were taken for evaluation, and it turns out that many Americans live about a kilometer from wells that are uranium-polluted, scientists from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln discovered.

Seventy-eight percent of the pollution comes from nitrate, the contaminator deriving from chemical fertilizers and animal waste. Nitrates oxidize uranium, making it soluble in groundwater.

Israel Bombs Syria

By Stephen Lendman

On Friday, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported Israeli warplanes bombed a military post near Quneitra in Syrian controlled Golan killing one soldier, wounding eight others.

The pro-Western London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported two deaths – possible military officials close to Assad. It indicated raids struck other targets outside Damascus, including a weapons depot.

Israel said the IDF “targeted 14 Syrian military posts in the Syrian Golan Heights” – without further explanation. Israeli media reported artillery batteries, army outposts and communications antennae struck.

The attack was perhaps the largest one since the 1967 Six Day War. Is it possible prelude to US/Israeli/Turkish full-scale war on Assad?...

James Perloff "On 9/11, The Flight 11 Crew KNEW They Were Taking Part In a Terror Drill!"

More info from Perloff's web site:

Unraveling the Mysteries of Flight 11

False flags are often planned to coincide with drills. This occurred with the Boston Marathon bombing (which happened during a bomb drill) and the recent Charleston massacre (which coincided with a DHS “active shooter threat” drill). The reason for coordinating false flags with drills is that if anything goes wrong, and the false flag cannot be carried out, the authorities can attribute any strange events the public witnessed to “a drill.”

Our thesis will be: Ong and Sweeney (Flt 11 flight attendants) believed they were participating in a hijacking drill. Those familiar with 9/11’s backstory know that NORAD and the Air Force were engaged in military exercises that day, including simulated hijackings. Information about this can be found abundantly on the Internet.

Deadly Cheering for War in Ukraine by Western Press

Two weeks ago, the Washington Post published an editorial saying that the governments of the NATO military alliance are being too soft on Russia over the crisis in Ukraine. The editors want even more aggressive support to the governing regime in Kyiv than what is already being given.

In particular, the newspaper objects to the ceasefire agreement that it says beleaguered Kyiv was pressured to sign in Minsk, Belarus on February 15, 2015. The editorial was headlined, ‘Putting Ukraine in an untenable position’ and its reads, “Yet now the German and French governments have enlisted the help of the Obama administration in seeking unilateral Ukrainian compliance with Minsk 2’s onerous political terms, which if fully implemented would implant a Russian-controlled entity inside Ukraine’s political system.”

There’s Movement at the Station: John Remington Graham Has Helped Aunt Maret Tsarnaeva File an Affidavit and an Amicus Curiae

Everything about the Boston Marathon case has been thrown into disarray by the new affidavit and amicus curiae filed by Maret Tsarnaeva, paternal aunt of the deceased Tamerlan and the incarcerated Dzhokar (nickname: Jahar). And I do mean filed, not just “sent in the mail.” A Minnesota lawyer, who lives in Quebec, gave guidance to Maret’s pro se filing. He is John Remington Graham.

There are four grounds on which the story of the Boston Marathon bombing is suddenly all-new. Which of the four would you like to discuss today, the most profoundly constitutional one, or the fantastic human-interest shocker? Oh rapture, I knew you would want to hear about the parchment above all, since it is, for Americans, our lifeblood.

Software update borked radar, delayed hundreds of flights, says US FAA

The problem occurred in the En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM) system that the FAA is installing across its US radar network. The ERAM system coordinates high-altitude radar readings and allows controllers to track 1,900 aircraft at a time, compared to 1,100 with the older Host radar system.

A new software update, installed on Saturday, allowed air traffic controllers to set up windows of frequently accessed information when needed, but the new code wasn't deleting this data when the operator changed the data, and instead stored it in memory. As a result the entire system overloaded and caused massive delays.

Between 11am and 4pm, flights over the nation's capital were either delayed or cancelled. In all, there were 476 cancellations and 492 delays at Washington's three airports before the fault was identified and fixed.

Walk4kids September 2015

What are the aims and objectives of Walk for Children?

1. To begin a drive for change by showcasing to the world that Israel, despite being the world leader in welfare issues taking children, is also the country which wants to express to the world the need for FAMILIES TO STAY TOGETHER WITHOUT GOVERNMENT INVOLVEMENT.

2. To encourage people worldwide to actually take action, not just talk on social media. To put their complaints and stories into real action for change.

3. The success of the walk is how many people take action for change.

There is no doubt that worldwide, citizens are struggling with over protective or zealous welfare workers. Israel is unique in that they also use No Exit Orders to hold people in the country who could ordinarily travel and build new lives.

Yet another Android app security bug: This time 'everything is affected'

Yet another potentially serious security flaw has been revealed in Android.

This time the problem involves the mobile operating system's ability to run more than one app at once – as opposed to its handling of multimedia messages, which was the crux of a cyber* of vulnerabilities last month.

The latest security blunder opens the door to criminals who want to spy on device owners, steal login details, install ransomware, and so on, it is claimed.

We're told the vulnerability can be exploited to show a spoofed user interface, controlled by an attacker, when someone starts an app: the owner will not be aware that they are typing into another program masquerading as a legit application.

Just watch the trends on Drudgereport. As the articles progress, what she did becomes less and less . . . . . yet the 17,800 classified mails plus other odds and ends is actually the same. Someone stepped in and started messing with the team that is doing the analysis of her hard drive, the entire investigation has been usurped and those who were initially on the project called the Michael Savage radio program to say what is going on. They are calling Hillary's actions the same as I have called them - the worst case of espionage in America's history BY FAR, nothing else even comes close.

Nature Takes on Tech As Lightning Strikes Google FOUR TIMES Erasing Cloud Data

In an iconic moment of the data-driven society, a Google data-center in Belgium was struck not once, but four times by lightning during a storm.

The old adages apparently don't apply in this modern age, as a power outage temporarily took down the computing facility after the repeated strikes of lightning hit its power grid.

The string of incidents resulted in a loss of a relatively small amount of cloud computing information, that nonetheless underscore the vulnerability of customer data. The London Telegraph reports:

Repeated lightning strikes have caused a Google data centre in Belgium to lose a small amount of data after the company was unable to restore some information.

Four successive strikes on the electricity grid that powers facilities in Saint-Ghislain, near Mons, affected 5 per cent of persistent, or non-virtual disks in the zone that powers Google Compute Engine, its cloud computing platform.

Jared Fogle, ex-Subway pitchman, paid kids for sex on New York trips, prosecutor says

Longtime Subway pitchman Jared Fogle capitalized on his business trips to New York City to arrange sexual encounters with minors in luxury hotels, federal prosecutors said in charging the Indiana man in a case that also documented his acceptance of child pornography from a close associate.

Fogle agreed Wednesday to plead guilty to allegations that he paid for sex with girls as young as 16 and received child pornography. The case already has destroyed his career with the sandwich-shop chain and could send him to prison for more than a decade.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope he gets a "footlong" while in jail!

It Starts: Broad Retaliation Against China in Currency War

Hot money is already fleeing emerging markets. Higher rates in the US will drain more capital out of countries that need it the most. It will pressure emerging market currencies and further increase the likelihood of a debt crisis in countries whose governments, banks, and corporations borrow in a currency other than their own.

This scenario would be bad enough for the emerging economies. But now China has devalued the yuan to stimulate its exports and thus its economy at the expense of others. And one thing has become clear on Wednesday: these struggling economies that compete with China are going to protect their exports against Chinese encroachment.

Hence a currency war.

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

FLASHBACK - U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix faults Bush administration for lack of "critical thinking" in Iraq

Speaking on the anniversary of the United States' invasion of Iraq, originally declared as a pre-emptive strike against a madman ready to deploy weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), the man first charged with finding those weapons said that the U.S. government has "the same mind frame as the witch hunters of the past" — looking for evidence to support a foregone conclusion.

The Deceptions of Hillary Clinton

selective enforcement snip : Consider this. In the past month, the Department of Justice indicted a young sailor who took a selfie in front of a sonar screen on a nuclear submarine and emailed the selfie to his girlfriend. It also indicted a Marine who sent an urgent warning to his superiors on his Gmail account about a dangerous Afghani spy who eventually killed three fellow Marines inside an American encampment. The emailing Marine was indicted for failure to secure classified materials. Gen. David Petraeus stored top-secret materials in an unlocked desk drawer in the study of his secured and guarded Virginia home and was indicted for the same crimes. And a former CIA agent was just sentenced to three years in prison for destroying one top-secret email.

Joint British-French Border Force to be Deployed to Calais to Confront Migrant Crisis

British police, including UK Border Force officers, will be deployed to France after Home Secretary Theresa May signed a belated agreement with the French government on the Calais migrant crisis.

The agreement will establish a joint control and command centre, headed up by senior British and French officers, and signals a step up in British involvement in Calais. The unusual feature of the Euro Tunnel project, which effectively pushed the British border forward onto the continent for the first time since the 13th century, has caused friction between the two countries as it has left the French government patrolling the border almost unassisted.

There would not be a migrant crisis is the western nations hadn't been mucking about in the Middle East and Africa!

The Federal Reserve is Not Your Friend

Imagine that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was a corporation, with its shares owned by the nation's major pharmaceutical companies. How would you feel about the regulation of medications? Whose interests would this corporation be serving? Or suppose that major oil companies appointed a small committee to periodically announce the price of a barrel of crude in the United States. How would that impact you at the gasoline pump?

Such hypotheticals would strike the majority of Americans as completely absurd, but it's exactly how our banking system operates.

Ukraine Debt Deadline in 3 Weeks - It's a Haircut Cliffhanger

Just before mid-September Ukraine has to come up with $0.5 billion.
Unclear that Kiev can do so or will be willing to since creditors have been reluctant to forgive much debt.
Meanwhile Ukrainians are almost certainly in for further ‘haircuts’ with pension cuts, higher gas prices and so on.
'Reverse Flow' Didn't Save Ukraine Money. It Cost It Millions Extra

Clinton Aide Formed Private Company While Already Working For Two Others, Plus State Dept.

One of the several lawsuits and congressional investigations that brought Hillary Clinton’s email scandal to light (contrary to her laughable assertions that she “voluntarily” disclosed anything) concerns her aide Huma Abedin’s very curious employment arrangement.

Abedin was working for the State Department full-time while simultaneously working for two private corporations: a consulting firm called Teneo established by one of Bill Clinton’s former aides, and the notorious “charity” known as the Clinton Foundation.

Kazakhstan Follows Russia in Floating the Currency

Russia Insider’s Alexander Mercouris has argued the single most important factor that has allowed Russia to weather lower oil prices so well has been its decision to float the ruble.
Kazakhstan chose a different strategy and continued to maintain a partial peg to the dollar - and as a result has found itself in considerable difficulty.
Now, however, Astana has declared it will move toward a freely-floating currency as Russia did last year.

Why Obama is torpedoing Hillary Clinton

The president craves a successor who will preserve his legacy

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama is not torpedoing Hillary. He has the FBI working to cover up the story of the emails and the link to Benghazi (which is what started the whole email issue) the way the FBI provably covered up the murder of White House Deputy Council Vincent Foster.

Hillary sent weapons to the US' declared enemies Al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria during the declared war on terror. That is treason. I don;t think Hillary took that step on her own, and Obama knows that if Hillary goes down, so does he!

Anti-Vaccine Doctor, Dr. Leonard Horowitz, Explains He’s Under Attack – Targeted by TPTB

America is threatened with radical risks from mandatory vaccinations politically imposed by drug industrialists with direct links to the Nazis of World War II. After all these years, the poisoning of people’s bodies and minds for profit and population control–global genocide–is alive and well in the “National Public Health Service” and Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) complicit with Big Pharma in committing mass murder and consumer fraud.

In this Special Warning–a public service message–from world leading vaccine industry whistleblower, Dr. Leonard Horowitz (a Harvard-trained public health and consumer safety activist), reveals the outrageous truth about vaccination risks grossly neglected, and purposely concealed, by health officials, politicians, and the corporate-controlled media promoting mandatory vaccinations for all school children.

NATO: Russian threatening capability may destroy Alliance

Russia creates a high-risk situation for Europe, and hinders NATO's fulfilling its functions, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey said.
Dempsey claimed that, ''threats are the combination, or the aggregate, of capabilities and intentions. Let me set aside for the moment, intentions, because I don't know what Russia intends.''
According to the general, Russia has quite threatening potential in space, cyber space, ground-based cruise missiles, submarines, and other activities aiming at severing communications.
''I do think one of the things that Russia does seem to to do is either discredit, or even more ominously, create the conditions for the failure of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization,'' he said.

Court says Clinton emails broke ‘government policy’

A federal judge said Thursday that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s unique email arrangement broke “government policy” and prodded the department to talk to the FBI about getting a look at the computer server and flash drives used to store her emails.

Judge Emmet G. Sullivan was surprised the State Department hadn’t even made that request, and poked at the administration’s claim that the FBI needed to be left alone to conduct its investigation.

Israel Strikes Syria in Response to Rocket Fire in the North

The Israeli army responded with artillery fire after rockets fired from Syria exploded in Israel's north on Thursday, while the Israel Air Force also struck Syria in response.

At least four rockets were fired at the northern Galilee and Golan Heights on Thursday afternoon, the Israel Defense Forces said. The rocket attack, which the IDF characterized as "deliberate and orchestrated," resulted in no casualties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And JUST when Israel was training for a Syrian ground invasion! What an amazing coincidence. and, of course, anyone who doesn't think it is a coincidence is a Jew-hating anti-Semite who wants Hitler to come back and gas Jewish babies in the ovens!

Anyone here stupid enough to believe that Syria would invite an Israeli invasion by firing rockets into Israel ... then not aim those rockets at anything important? Because if you are that stupid, I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons to sell you!

U.K. Police Stripped Of Stop and Search Powers For Persistent Abuse

United Kingdom — The Northamptonshire police force has announced it will strip officers of the right to stop and search individuals if officers are deemed to have abused the law enforcement tactic. Police officers will be given “three strikes” on stop and search “errors” before their powers are withdrawn, according to the Northampton Chronicle. The panel has already stripped the power from three special constables, two regular constables, and three sergeants since last October. Six of the nine have since had their powers reinstated after further training.

Federal Judge Orders DEA to Release Information about Illegal Mass Surveillance

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has been ordered by a federal judge to provide information on its secretive mass surveillance program to a human rights group. Human Rights Watch (HRW), with legal help from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), sued the DEA and other federal agencies to stop the collecting of data on international phone calls made by Americans to overseas parties—a form of unauthorized surveillance that the DEA quietly performed for two decades, according to EFF.
