Ohio's 4th-largest city: Don't drink the water

Ohio's 4th-largest city: Don't drink the water 2 Aug 2014 Toxins possibly from algae on Lake Erie fouled the water supply of the state's fourth-largest city Saturday, forcing officials to issue warnings not to drink the water and the governor to declare a state of emergency as worried residents descended on stores, quickly clearing shelves of bottled water. The city advised about 400,000 residents in Toledo, most of its suburbs and a few areas in southeastern Michigan not to brush their teeth with or boil the water because that would only increase the toxin's concentration. Toledo issued the warning just after midnight after tests at one treatment plant showed two sample readings for microsystin above the standard for consumption.

Obama administration censors 'significant portions' of CIA torture report, Feinstein delays its release

Obama administration censors 'significant portions' of CIA torture report, Feinstein delays its release 2 Aug 2014 The Obama administration censored significant portions of the findings of an investigation into the CIA's use of harsh interrogation methods on torture of suspected terrorists, forcing the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee to delay their release "until further notice." The postponement late Friday added to serious frictions over the investigation between the administration and lawmakers, who have been pressing for the swiftest, most extensive publication of the findings on one of darkest chapters in the CIA's 65-year history. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) announced the delay only hours after the White House returned the document to her after it completed its declassification review.

Obama admits CIA 'tortured some folks' but stands by Brennan over spying

Obama admits CIA 'tortured some folks' but stands by Brennan over spying 01 Aug 2014 President Barack Obama on Friday starkly criticised the CIA's past [sic] treatment of terror suspects, saying he could understand why the agency rushed to use controversial interrogation techniques in the aftermath of 9/11 but conceding: "We tortured some folks." [In] his latest comments, made at a White House press conference, expanded on his thoughts about CIA tactics, which he said "any fair-minded person would believe were torture". US officials have historically avoided using the word "torture", because of its potential legal ramifications. Obama also strongly defended the embattled director of the CIA, John Brennan, who on Thursday was forced to apologise to the Senate intelligence committee -- which produced the soon-to-be declassified report -- after conceding that personnel from his agency had spied on congressional staff who were conducting the inquiry.

Obama on CIA's post-9/11 tactics: 'We tortured some folks'

Obama on CIA's post-9/11 tactics: 'We tortured some folks' 01 Aug 2014 President Barack Obama made a rare acknowledgment during a Friday press briefing concerning the United States past use of enhanced interrogation tactics in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. "In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, we did some things that were wrong. We did a whole lot of things that were right, but we tortured some folks. We did things that were contrary to our values," Pres. Obama said near the end of a nearly hour-long press briefing at the White House in Washington, DC. [Right, Obama cut a deal to pardon key war criminals in the Bush regime, in exchange for keeping most of Bush's polices to benefit Wall Street. This was accomplished by ensuring the filibuster rule didn't change in the Senate, so the GOP could easily block any and all progressive legislation. --LRP]
