Did Paris attackers also plan EgyptAir disaster? Jihadis travelled to Charles de Gaulle airport just TWO HOURS before last year's deadly massacre as investigators probe terror group's 'link to MS804 crash' | 21 May 2016 | The ISIS jihadis behind the Paris attacks stopped off at Charles De Gaulle airport just hours before carrying out their deadly massacre last November.

The four man terror team visited the airport at 6:20pm on 13 November. An hour later they left the airport and went on to murder 130 people on the streets of Paris...'It is feared the jihads were coordinating with comrades at the airport.

Burning nuclear reactor fuel could have worsened the Fukushima disaster

May 21, 2016 by legitgov

Burning nuclear reactor fuel could have worsened the Fukushima disaster | 20 May 2016 | Japan's chief cabinet secretary called it "the devil's scenario." Two weeks after the 11 March 2011 earthquake and tsunami devastated the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, causing three nuclear reactors to melt down and release radioactive plumes, officials were bracing for even worse. They feared that spent fuel stored in the reactor halls would catch fire and send radioactive smoke across a much wider swath of eastern Japan, including Tokyo. Thanks to a lucky break detailed in a report released today by the U.S. National Academies, Japan dodged that bullet...A major spent fuel fire at a U.S. nuclear plant "could dwarf the horrific consequences of the Fukushima accident," says Edwin Lyman, a physicist at the Union of Concerned Scientists, a nonprofit in Washington, D.C., who was not on the panel.

Clintons took payments from Trans-Pacific Partnership backers last year | 18 May 2016 | Former President Bill Clinton raked in millions of dollars from special interest groups in the weeks just before and after his wife announced her presidential campaign, including $325,000 from a group that pushed for the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Sanders denounced the agreement early in his campaign, arguing the deal benefits major corporations at the expense of American jobs. But the National Association of Manufacturers, which paid Bill Clinton a hefty fee just one month before Hillary Clinton launched her candidacy in April, lobbied for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

EgyptAir disappearance 'points to bomb', says terrorism expert | 19 May 2016 | The EgyptAir flight disappearance could be the result of a bomb, according to one of Australia's most prominent counter terrorism researchers. Deakin University professor Greg Barton said while it is possible MS804 vanished on the way from Paris to Cairo because of a conventional systems failure, "if you have an aircraft experience an explosive decompression at cruise altitude, that points to it being a bomb"..."If the radar image is suddenly not there and there's a sudden deceleration, as with the Sharm el-Sheik flight, it does strongly suggest a bomb."
