Ban on transgender troops to be lifted July 1
“Our transgender service members and their families are breathing a huge sigh of relief,” said Ashley Broadway-Mack, president of the American Military Partner Association, which represents LGBTQ families. “We are eagerly anticipating the details of this historic announcement, and we are incredibly grateful for the leadership Secretary Carter has shown in getting us to this critically important point for our military families.”... Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon said the main focus of the Pentagon policy review has been the effect of repeal on the U.S. military’s readiness to fight, Pahon said.

The Global War on ISIS After Orlando
It’s time to fight them harder and smarter
John Allen and Michael O'Hanlon are senior fellows at the Brookings Institution.
The United States needs to bear down on a comprehensive strategy to defeat ISIS globally in the aftermath of the terrible June 12 tragedy in Orlando, Florida...ISIS has a track record of using its battlefield and terrorist successes to excite, attract, and inspire new recruits and goad sympathetic, impressionable minds to heinous acts...
What (Omar) Mateen did, the bloodiest single shooting spree in U.S. history, is entirely repeatable by well-trained individuals with access to weapons like the AR-15. Mateen perhaps was deranged, but also apparently pushed over the edge by the allure of joining a broader ISIS-inspired movement that finds legitimacy in doctrines of hate, and takes purpose from creating mass-casualty events in the name of some perverted interpretation of Islam. It could, and probably will, happen again..
Reuters reports Omar Mateen’s employers G4S screened him in 2013 and made “no findings”
Mateen was an armed security officer for G4S, and the company was trying to ascertain whether any guns used in the attack were related to Mateen’s work, said a spokesman who declined to be named. Mateen worked for global security company G4S since 2007and was employed at a gated retirement community in South Florida, the company said in a statement late on Sunday. He underwent two company screenings and background checks - once when he was hired in 2007, and repeated in 2013, with no findings.” In 2013, the company learned that Mateen had been questioned by the FBI but the inquiries were then closed. “We were not made aware of any alleged connections between Mateen and terrorist activities, and were unaware of any further FBI investigations,” the company statement said

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is quietly transporting illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to Phoenix and releasing them without proper processing or issuing court appearance documents...U.S. government contracted security firm G45 is driving “illegal Other than Mexicans” (OTMs) from the Border Patrol Tucson Sector where they were in custody to Phoenix G4S the world’s leading security solutions group with operations in more than 100 countries and 610,000 employees. G4S has more than 50,000 employees in the U.S. with domestic headquarters in Jupiter, Florida. Judicial Watch is filing a number of public records requests to get more information involving the arrangement between G4S and the government, specifically the transport of illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to other parts of the country. The photo accompanying this story shows the uniformed G4S guard that transported the OTMs this week from Tucson to Phoenix....Officially, DHS denies this is occurring, in fact earlier this year U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske blasted Border Patrol union officials for denouncing this policy. http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2016/06/dhs-quietly-moving-releasing-v...

...How can we and...U.S. Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld, be so sure there will be more terrorist attacks against the Americans and civilization at large?Because these attacks will be instigated at the order of the Honorable Donald H. Rumsfeld, U.S. Secretary of Defense..... in last Sunday’s Los Angeles Times--an article by military analyst William Arkin, detailing the vast expansion of U.S. secret armies being massed...Rumsfeld’s plan to create “a super-Intelligence Support Activity to bring together CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence, and cover and deception.”...
According to a Defense Science Board classified document...a new organization–the “Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG)”–will carry out secret missions to “stimulate reactions” among terrorist groups, provoking them into committing violent acts, thus to U.S. “counterattack”.
It’s not a fight for freedom; it’s a retreat into darkness...plunging the world into an abyss, an endless night of black ops, retribution, blowback, deceit, of murder and terror–wholesale, retail, state-sponsored, privatized; of fear and degradation, servility, chaos, the perversion of all that’s best in us...

"I think that's very significant...Michael Morell said because ISIS tells its followers they must pledge bayat, must pledge allegiance to ISIS before they die. We saw that in San Bernardino, now we've seen it here. So I think it's very important because it shows he was in touch with that ISIS messaging."

...when the nation’s top intelligence officers presented their annual worldwide threat assessment to Congress earlier this month they catalogued threats from North Korea, cyberterrorists, Al Qaeda, and predicted a 2016 ISIS-sponsored terrorist attack in the US — but they said nothing about the threat of falling objects — that kill nearly 700 people in the United States every year...As sane adults think about risks to themselves and their families, how should they compare the threat of killer tree limbs and Islamist terrorists? How much more likely is an American to be killed in the year ahead by terrorists than by falling objects?Comparing causes of violent deaths in the past decade, a person living in the United States is more than 100 times more likely to be killed by falling objects than by jihadi terrorists.

...FBI took more than five years to identify more than 60 death-row defendants whose cases had been handled by 13 lab examiners whose work had been criticized in a 1997 inspector-general investigation. As a result, state authorities could not consider whether to stay sentences, and three men were put to death. One of the defendants, executed in Texas in 1997, would not have been eligible for the death penalty without the FBI’s flawed work, the report said. “Failures of this nature undermine the integrity of the United States’ system of justice and the public’s confidence in our system,” the 146-page report stated...
Justice Dept and FBI forensic evidence wrong in almost all trials since before 2000
4/18/15 by By Spencer S. Hsu http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/crime/fbi-overstated-forensic-hair-m...
The Justice Department and FBI formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000.
Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far, according to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the Innocence Project, which are assisting the government with the country’s largest post-conviction review of questioned forensic evidence.
The cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death. Of those, 14 have been executed or died in prison, the groups said under an agreement with the government to release results after the review of the first 200 convictions.

Task force documents identifying scientific reviews of problem cases generally did not contain the names of the defendants. Piecing together case numbers and other bits of information from more than 10,000 pages of documents, The Post found more than 250 cases in which a scientific review was completed. Available records did not allow the identification of defendants in roughly 100 of those cases. Records of an unknown number of other questioned cases handled by federal prosecutors have yet to be released by the government... records documented that prosecutors ‘disclosed results of the reviews’ to defendants in fewer than half of the 250-plus questioned cases...
