MEXICO CITY - A senior U.S. official says there is strong circumstantial evidence that Mexican federal police who fired on a U.S. embassy vehicle, wounding two CIA agents, were working for organized crime on a targeted assassination attempt. A Mexican official with knowledge of the case on the Aug. 24 ambush says that prosecutors are investigating whether the Beltran Leyva Cartel was behind the attack. The Mexican official said on Tuesday that gang involvement is one of several lines of investigation into the shooting of an armoured SUV clearly marked by diplomatic license plates

Another coverup. They told us it was mistaken ID and not an issue. Well guess what, it was. This is just like Libya.

Virtuoso’s flutes destroyed by US Customs

Before you whine about an airline temporarily losing your luggage, think of poor Boujemaa Razgui. The flute virtuoso who performs regularly with The Boston Camerata lost 13 handmade flutes over the holidays when a US Customs official at New York’s JFK Airport mistook the instruments for pieces of bamboo and destroyed them. Razgui, a Canadian citizen who lives some of the time in Brockton, had flown last week from Morocco to Boston, with stops in Madrid and New York. In New York, he says, an official opened his luggage and found the 13 flutelike instruments — 11 nays and two kawalas.

but tax collection up

Mexico City - Mexico´s oil revenues dropped 1.8 percent in the January-November period, compared to the same period in 2012, but non-petroleum tax revenues rose 3.9 percent, the government said. Public sector budget revenues fell 1.2 percent in real terms during the first 11 months of 2013, compared to the January-November period last year, the Finance Secretariat said. Oil revenues fell as a result of a drop in the average price of Mexico´s crude exports, lower oil and gas production, and a stronger peso, the secretariat said in a report.

Over the last 12 months some 3,000 Cubans, mostly doctors, have arrived in the United States after deserting one of the Venezuelan government´s social programs they staff. This accounts for a 60% increase as compared with 2012. In 2012 there were about 5,000 refugee Cuban doctors and nurses in the United States coming from all over the world. Through December 1, 2013 this figure had surged to 8,000, 98% of them came from Venezuela. These are estimates by Dr. Julio Cesar Alfonso, head of the South Florida group Solidarity Without Borders Inc. (SWB), which helps Cuban medical professionals who try

Health officials reported 10 fatalities in Monday morning’s blast and 28 injured, including 22 being treated in hospital, according to the latest update. The Investigative Committee gives the casualty numbers as 10 people killed and 19 injured. A one-year-old baby is among the injured and remains in a serious condition. The explosion was apparently set off by a suicide bomber, spokesman for the

Fifteen months after the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, the narrative of the attack continues to be shaped, and reshaped, by politicians and the press. But a New York Times report published over the weekend has angered sources who were on the ground that night. Those sources, who continue to face threats of losing their jobs, sharply challenged the Times’ findings that there was no involvement from Al Qaeda or any other international terror group and that an anti-Islam film played a role in inciting the initial wave of attacks. “It was a

When U.S. officials warn about "attacks" on electric power facilities these days, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a computer hacker trying to shut the lights off in a city with malware. But a more traditional attack on a power station in California has U.S. officials puzzled and worried about the physical security of the the electrical grid--from attackers who come in with guns blazing. Around 1:00 AM on April 16, at least one individual (possibly two) entered two different manholes at the PG&E Metcalf power substation, southeast of San Jose, and cut fiber cables in the

A group of NGOs and the Venezuelan community of Lesbian, Gay, Transsexual, Bisexual and Intersexual persons (LGTBI) requested on Thursday to the Venezuelan Foreign Affairs Office to grant asylum to Ugandans with different sexual orientation in light of their imminent imprisonment within the framework of a new law. The request, handed over to a team closed to the foreign minister (of Venezuela), was signed by several organizations supporting the community. Some of these organizations include Comando Hugo Chávez para la Sexodiversidad (Hugo Chávez Command for Sexual Diversity) and Venezuela Igualitaria (Egalitarian Venezuela).

Blackouts continued in several neighborhoods of Argentina´s metropolitan Buenos Aires area while protests increased including pickets in highways, attempts to set on fire power distributors offices or kidnap power companies´ officers while the only resource from government has been to blame companies and threaten to take over utilities. In Buenos Aires there was some brief relief with late Thursday evening showers after a full day of 38 degrees Celsisus.

Over a quarter of the Argentine population live in poverty conditions, with no formal job, poor quality education, dreadful housing and insufficient healthcare, according to the latest paper from the Buenos Aires Catholic University Social Debt Observatory. The paper, “Structural heterogeneous factors and standing social inequalities” also reveals that from 2004 to 2010 the social gap between life conditions for the middle class and the most vulnerable has increased considerably. The Social Debt Observatory considered one of the most prestigious and reliable in Argentina says that half of Argentine workers have a precarious job or ´indigence jobs´ (i.e. collecting cardboard

VANCOUVER – An undeveloped roll of film from 33 years ago with never-before-seen photos of Mount Saint Helens days before it erupted just resurfaced at The Columbian newspaper. The pictures are part of Northwest history and were taken before Columbian photographer Reid Blackburn died in the May 1980 eruption. Blackburn went up in an airplane to capture the images of the smoldering cauldron. A week later, Blackburn was killed in his vehicle while covering the eruption. The roll of film got lost in the newspaper’s archives before it was ever developed. This month, 33 years after the blast, photo archivist Linda Lute found

WEST READING, Pa. — A terminally ill girl who received support from thousands of Christmas carolers outside her home over the weekend died early on Christmas morning, her family said. Delaney Brown, 8, of West Reading "passed away quietly with her loving family by her side," family spokesman Christopher Winters said in a statement Wednesday. On Saturday night, thousands gathered outside her home in eastern Pennsylvania to fulfill her wish for a huge holiday singalong.

Geopolitics: It´s always questionable when a nation that can´t keep its lights on goes on a military spending spree. So now Argentina has just launched a new space rocket to "recover" its defense capacity. This won´t end well. Last Friday, Argentina´s air force launched a research rocket connected to its space program that its defense minister called "a milestone," according to a report in Mercopress. What´s really going on, though, was spilled by Argentina´s defense minister, Agustin Rossi, who called it a "step toward the recovery of scientific-technological capabilities for defense" and hailed it as "of the utmost importance."

The Straight Dope on Homosexuality

The Department of Justice reports that homosexuals are more likely (15.4% of them) than heterosexual men (10.8%) to be physically attacked by a domestic partner. But the DOJ also found that 39% of cohabiting lesbians say they have been raped, attacked, or stalked by a lover, as opposed to 21.7% of heterosexuals who live with men. This means a lesbian is about twice as likely as a hetero woman to be stalked or slapped around by a live-in lover. A hugely disproportionate number of male serial killers have been homosexual; figures run from 40 to 60% depending on definitions. Some

A professor who teaches constitutional law courses at the City University of New York’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice penned a Christmas Day essay blaming “southern White radicals” for the disastrous, slow-motion train wreck failure that has been the rollout of the Affordable Care Act. The essay, by Gloria J. Browne-Marshall at the website Politics in Color, is entitled “2013: A Year of Racial Challenges.” “[S]outhern White radicals vowed to stop implementation of the Obama-care law leading one to wonder if Tea Party members would oppose affordable healthcare if it came from a nonBlack [sic] President,”

The establishment GOP in Washington hates the Tea Party and the conservative wing of the party more than they do the Democrats. They will make very clear that instead of riding a conservative wave to a landslide victory in the 2014 midterms, they will do everything in their power to sabotage conservative and Tea Party candidates for their own personal benefit. Many establishment groups have been vocal about their strategy to attack principled conservatives. Karl Rove’s American Crossroads is “preparing an aggressive effort to groom and support more centrist Republican candidates.” The Chamber of Commerce, who supports illegal and cheap

Colorado will make history Wednesday as the first American state allowing stores to sell marijuana for recreational use – eliciting fear and predictions of doom from anti-drug campaigners. On a Tuesday conference call hosted by Smart Approaches to Marijuana, former Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., said Colorado and Washington state – where stores will open later in 2014 – are "canaries in the coal mine." "There are a lot of ´unintended consequences´... that will make them ponder whether this was the right decision," Kennedy said, predicting more traffic accidents, increased school truancy, higher drop-out rates and a general decrease in public health.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed landmark legislation at the end of December which allowed the state’s undocumented high school students access to in-state tuition at all public colleges and universities. Under the new legislation, students who graduated from a New Jersey high school where they had been in attendance for at least three years are eligible to receive in-state and in-county rates at state colleges, universities, and community college campuses. “This is what compromise looks like,” the governor said of the bill, deemed the state’s “Dream Act.” Christie signed the original bill with a conditional veto,

Chicken has officially overtaken beef as the most popular meat product being consumed in the U.S. and the trend looks likely to continue in 2014. While the per capita consumption of beef has dropped from a peak of 90lbs per capita in the 1970s to 50 lbs in 2012, chicken consumption has gone the other way rising from under 20 lbs in 1960 to about 55 lbs in 2012. Americans now eat less beef then we did in 1955, but is the change a result of a healthier diet or because people are choosing the cheaper option? The answer is

(Video) It may have been the least productive year for Congress in history, at least in terms of passing laws – fewer than 60 of which made it through the House and Senate and were signed by President Barack Obama. Across the country, however, state lawmakers were busy getting more than 40,000 bills passed, ones that tackle everything from drones to food stamp benefits. In Illinois for example, teenagers will no longer get to use tanning beds without a doctor´s note. If you live in Delaware, visit the shark fin buffet while you can, a new law will make it illegal to own, sale, or distribute the controversial delicacy.

An air rescue for the passengers aboard a research ship that has been trapped in Antarctic ice for a week will wait for a break in the weather to start airlifting people from the vessel, Australian maritime authorities say. The 74 scientists, tourists and crew aboard the Akademik Shokalskiy, a Russian-crewed research vessel touring the Antarctic, have been trapped in ice since Christmas Eve. A helicopter on board a Chinese icebreaker, the Snow Dragon, will be used to collect the passengers once there is a break in the weather, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said in a Monday night conference

Put me down in the Roger Simon camp on this one: without wandering into Birther territory or the inconclusive musings of Jerome Corsi… who the heck is this guy, really? To put it bluntly: nobody knows nothin’ about the president of the United States, aka the leader of the free world. (Snip) Has there been a modern presidential candidate about whom we know less than the former Barry Soetoro? Other than what he’s told us about himself in Dreams from My Father — a book proven even by sympathetic biographers to be filled with fabrications (“a man one step removed from his own life,” according to David Maraniss)?

Smarting from the number of witnesses who came out to challenge The New York Times´ weekend article downplaying terrorist involvement in the 2012 Benghazi attack, NYT editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal "argued that those trying to claim Al Qaeda was involved" do so "for strictly political reasons." According to Fox News, Rosenthal said: For anyone wondering why it´s so important to Republicans that Al Qaeda orchestrated the attack--or how the Obama administration described the attack in its immediate aftermath--the answer is simple. The Republicans hope to tarnish Democrat candidates by making it seem as though Mr. Obama doesn´t take Al Qaeda seriously. Rosenthal

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry apologized Tuesday for openly mocking Mitt Romney´s black adopted grandson, after Sarah Palin led the chorus of conservatives who criticized the cable news host. The Romney family Christmas card was among the items featured in the "2013: The year in political ridiculousness" segment on the cable news show Sunday. In the photo, the former Republican presidential candidate and his wife Ann, who are both white, sit in the center of their 22 grandchildren.

MSNBC’s mocking of the adopted African-American baby in Governor Romney’s family was outrageous, offensive and over-the-line. An after-the-fact apology from host Melissa Harris-Perry two days later is not enough. MSNBC network executives need to personally apologize to Governor Romney and his family. Disciplinary action also must be taken against the offending parties, just as it would if the roles were reversed and a conservative had said something similar on a different network. Perhaps most alarming about this entire incident is the fact that the offending segment happened on Sunday afternoon and went unnoticed until a blogger flagged it Monday morning.
