CIA Director Brennan Admits He Was Lying: CIA Really Did Spy On Congress

The director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, issued an extraordinary apology to leaders of the US Senate intelligence committee on Thursday, conceding that the agency employees spied on committee staff and reversing months of furious and public denials. Brennan acknowledged that an internal investigation had found agency security personnel transgressed a firewall set up on a CIA network, called RDINet, which allowed Senate committee investigators to review agency documents for their landmark inquiry into CIA torture."

Fukushima Safe Fish?

I like to cook, and everyone knows fish is a great health food. But post-Fukushima, I now wonder just how contaminated the Pacific Ocean-based food supply has become. So I tried to logically determine which would be the most Fukushima-safe fish that I can actually buy at my local grocery store. I share my analysis here with you....

I decided that the "healthiest" fish (in moderate quantities) would be the one which:
1) is high in Omega-3 fatty acids (i.e., is a fatty fish), and
2) is isolated from the Pacific Ocean, and away from industrial pollution sources in general

The Anti-Pot Lobby's Big Bankroll: The Real Reason Pot Is Still Illegal

Snip from a long article in The Nation:

People in the United States, a country in which painkillers are routinely overprescribed, now consume more than 84 percent of the entire worldwide supply of oxycodone and almost 100 percent of hydrocodone opioids. In Kentucky, to take just one example, about one in fourteen people is misusing prescription painkillers, and nearly 1,000 Kentucky residents are dying every year.

So it’s more than a little odd that [the Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America] CADCA and the other groups leading the fight against relaxing marijuana laws, including the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids (formerly the Partnership for a Drug-Free America), derive a significant portion of their budget from opioid manufacturers and other pharmaceutical companies. According to critics, this funding has shaped the organization’s policy goals: CADCA takes a softer approach toward prescription-drug abuse, limiting its advocacy to a call for more educational programs, and has failed to join the efforts to change prescription guidelines in order to curb abuse. In contrast, CADCA and the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids have adopted a hard-line approach to marijuana, opposing even limited legalization and supporting increased police powers.

A close look at the broader political coalition lobbying against marijuana-law reform reveals many such conflicts of interest. In fact, the CADCA event was attended by representatives of a familiar confederation of anti-pot interests, many of whom have a financial stake in the status quo, including law enforcement agencies, pharmaceutical firms, and nonprofits funded by federal drug-prevention grants.
