Obama administration expands elite military unit's powers to hunt foreign fighters globally --Known as the 'Counter-External Operations Task Force,' the group will be designed to take JSOC's targeting model | 25 Nov 2016 | The Obama administration is giving the elite Joint Special Operations Command expanded power to track, plan and potentially launch attacks on terrorist cells around the globe, a move driven by concerns of a dispersed terrorist threat as Islamic State militants are driven from strongholds in Iraq and Syria, U.S. officials said. The missions could occur well beyond the battlefields of places like Iraq, Syria and Libya where Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) has carried out clandestine operations in the past. When finalized, it will elevate JSOC from being a highly-valued strike tool used by regional military commands to leading a new multiagency intelligence and action force.

Newly-Released Documents Confirm Bureau of Prisons Visit to CIA Torture Site in Afghanistan | 25 Nov 2016 | One of the many alarming facts that came to light with the release of the executive summary of the Senate Torture Report in 2014 was that the Justice Department's Bureau of Prisons had sent a "delegation of several officers" to Afghanistan to conduct an assessment an infamous CIA detention site and concluded the CIA "did not mistreat the detainees."

The bureau has now turned over several emails mentioning the visit -- along with a written declaration by a senior Bureau of Prisons lawyer explaining the attempted cover-up.
