"Potential witness must be jailed until leaving US":
"An immigration judge has ordered a potential witness in the investigation into the fatal shooting of a Chechen man by an FBI agent last month to leave the United States no later than July 1, and to remain in jail until she departs, raising an outcry from a civil rights group seeking a full accounting of the man’s death.

Federal immigration officials arrested Tatiana Igorevna Gruzdeva, a 19-year-old aspiring foreign language teacher from Russia, on May 16 for overstaying her visa. They discovered the violation when the FBI and other law enforcement officials began investigating Ibragim Todashev, her roommate in Orlando, about his ties to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.

Six days later, a Boston FBI agent shot and killed 27-year-old Todashev in their apartment.

Officials with the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Florida, which is conducting its own review of the shooting, said they wanted to talk to Gruzdeva about the FBI’s actions in the days and weeks leading to Todashev’s death. Council leaders are concerned that federal officials are sweeping her out of the country before she could provide information to them and law enforcement officials."
Cover-up story:  "Cover Story: How the NSA Targets Germany and Europe" (worried that NSA employees might get terminal cases of carpal tunnel syndrome):
"SPIEGEL has decided not to publish details it has seen about secret operations that could endanger the lives of NSA workers."
"The Guardian Revealed An NSA 'Scoop' Then Deleted It From The Website"  "British Paper Duped into Fake NSA Scoop by Obama-Is-Gay Crank"  The large ad hominem argument seems to be intended to obscure the fact that the underlying story is true.

The court oversight amounts to "a bulk collection order for internet metadata 'every 90 days'".

Hasbara is expensive: "Americans give $274 million to aid Israeli settlements - new report"

Oh-oh:  "Jewish ex-Argentina gov’t official to be probed in AMIA bombing":
"The Jewish ex-interior minister of Argentina will be investigated for his ties to the AMIA Jewish center bombing.

The Buenos Aires Federal Appeals Court last week ordered the probe of Carlos Vladimir Corach in connection with an illegal payment of $400,000 to Carlos Telleldin, an auto mechanic who was among those charged in the 1994 attack that left 85 dead and hundreds wounded."
