by Roger Charles
Yesterday, we told you about new evidence of a likely undercover intelligence operative who associated with Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh in the period prior to the bombing, and about a government cover-up that continues to the present. Today, the rest of the murky story behind one of America’s worst tragedies.
Obama Regrets Drone Strike That Killed Hostages But Hails US For Transparency
The President took “full responsibility” for the “accidental” deaths of Dr. Warren Weinstein, a US government aid worker, and Giovanni Lo Porto, an Italian aid worker. The two were being held hostage in an al-Qaeda compound when a drone strike targeted the facility based on “near-certain” intelligence that it was “frequented” by at least one al-Qaeda leader. Alas, the families of countless Pakistani, Afghani and Yemeni victims of the woefully imprecise drone war are still waiting for apologies.
Jeb Bush Says NSA Surveillance is “the best part of the Obama administration”
The Next Bush In Line just praised Obama! Hooray… bipartisanship lives! Of course, it’s always been the order of the day when it comes to the National Security State.

Thanks to the Fed and a go-go financial climate, it’s cheaper than ever to borrow money. And while municipalities have issued a record $130 billion bonds, very little of that money is being used to rebuild America’s crumbling infrastructure. Too bad the Pentagon can’t find $1.3 billion in emergency reconstruction aid spent in Afghanistan. It sure could come in handy.
Comcast Plans to Drop Time Warner Cable Deal
Bloomberg is reporting that Comcast’s contentious bid to create an unprecedented cable & media behemoth… is about to go the way of the dodo bird. In recent months, consumer advocates and key members of Congress have applied a great deal of pressure on FCC regulators and Department of Justice officials reviewing the epic bid. Tomorrow, Comcast will formally announce it is walking away from the deal. It looks like the pressure worked.
