Snaps up

"Malcolm X assassination: 50 years on, mystery still clouds details of the case":
"The notes appear to substantiate the accounts of Herman Ferguson and the AP of a “second man” taken into police custody. That a name should resurface 50 years later is remarkable. But more significant is that the “Ray Woods” named in the note was likely Raymond A Wood, an undercover New York City police officer with the Bureau of Special Services and Investigation (BOSSI)."
"Israel snaps up 14 F-35 stealth fighters"  I think 'snaps up' must be a technical term for when you get something for free.  Curiously, the discussion at the Jerusalem Post is one of the few areas where it is pointed out that Israel doesn't actually pay for any of these weapons:  "Israel signs contract to purchase additional 14 F-35 fighter jets"  The bright side is that the F-35 is a complete piece-of-shit aircraft - probably the greatest triumph of bribery over common sense in the venal history of American military procurement - which will actually degrade Israel's military capability.

Newspapers in a pissing match over which is the most corrupt:   "Peter Oborne resignation: Senior writer quits Telegraph dramatically over HSBC allegations" and "Guardian 'changed Iraq article to avoid offending Apple'".  See also:  "Le Monde owner's criticism of HSBC leak coverage lays bare fragility of press freedom".  They are all professional liars.
