Terrorism Case Defense Wants Surveillance Records --Prosecutors say he took a phony car bomb from an undercover FBI agent in 2012 04 May 2014 Attorneys for a Chicago terrorism suspect are urging a federal appeals court to uphold a trial judge's decision to grant defense lawyers unprecedented access to secret intelligence-court records. In their March appeal to the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, prosecutors said letting the defense see the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court documentation would be a "sea change" in how such sensitive documents are handled and could end up jeopardizing national security. But attorneys for 20-year-old Adel Daoud argued in a Friday filing that the trial judge acted appropriately and didn't abuse discretion when ordering that the defense could see the documents. Daoud is a U.S. citizen from a Chicago-area suburb. [Seems to me, the FBI agent/false flag architect who provided the 'phony car bomb' should be the on trial here--not Daoud.]

White House reporters honor black journalist 03 May 2014 Harry McAlpin was standing outside the Oval Office, moments away from becoming the first black reporter to attend a presidential news conference, when one of his contemporaries approached with a deal. Stay out here, the reporter told McAlpin...He marched into the Oval Office anyway. McAlpin, who became a fixture at the White House during the Roosevelt and Truman administrations, never got a White House Correspondents' Association membership while he was alive.
