Mr. Twister


WP -- The Justice Department sent a legal memorandum to the Pentagon in 2003 asserting that federal laws prohibiting assault, maiming and other crimes did not apply to military interrogators who questioned al-Qaeda captives because the president's ultimate authority as commander in chief overrode such statutes.

Although the existence of the memo has long been known, its contents had not been previously disclosed.

Надеюсь, никто не шокирован.

O! O! Eщё борьба с исламским терроризмом!

У зайчиков сегодня, кажется, флешмоб.
Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey -- Every new technology we create can be abused -- whether it's a common identity thief looking for a new way to steal your bank account information, or an international terrorist looking to advance a murderous plot. Counterfeiting and piracy generate huge profits, much of it flowing to organized crime. Criminal syndicates, and in some cases even terrorist groups, view intellectual property crime as a lucrative business, and see it as a low-risk way to fund other activities. A primary goal of our intellectual property enforcement mission is to show these criminals that they’re wrong.
