Guantánamo commander: Contractors read inmate lawyers' mail --It was unclear Tuesday what contracting firm precisely had the job of sifting through the mail, nor the value of the contract. 17 Jan 2012 In unprecedented war court testimony, the prison camps' commander on Tuesday defended a three-tier system of classifying lawyers' mail to alleged terrorists that sparked a defense lawyer's boycott and is threatening to stall future war crimes trials.

January 17, 2012 by legitgov

Radioactive Concrete Is Latest Scare for Fukushima Survivors 16 Jan 2012 The Japanese government is investigating how radioactive concrete ended up in a new apartment complex in the Fukushima Prefecture, housing evacuees from a town near the crippled nuclear plant.
