This week’s top news:

President Obama Reauthorizes Warrantless Wiretapping Law: Even though the government has acknowledged that the secretive program has exceeded its legal limits, violating Americans’ Fourth Amendment constitutional rights, the Obama administration aggressively pushed for its full renewal.

Obama’s Renditions: Short on Evidence, Long on Secrecy: As the US struggles to charge European detainees with “supporting al-Shabaab” based on little to no evidence, the press got a hold of the fact that the individuals were renditioned, a controversial policy that Obama was supposed to have ended.

Court Rejects Lawsuits Demanding Obama Disclose More Info on Drone Program: A federal judge on Wednesday rejected The New York Times’ bid to force the US government to disclose more information about its drone war, a targeted killing program that kills suspects without charge or trial, even American citizens.

Obama Signs 2013 NDAA, Blocking Closure of Gitmo: President Barack Obama on Wednesday signed into law the $633 billion defense authorization bill despite provisions that block any attempt to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center and try detainees on US soil.

Nusra Front Takes Lead in Rebel Fight in Damascus: A Sunni extremist group that the US declared an officially recognized terrorist organization has taken the lead in the rebel fight to control the Syrian capital of Damascus.

US Defense Corporations Benefitting From Obama’s ‘Asia-Pivot’: The major beneficiary in the Obama administration’s decision to “pivot” to the Asia-Pacific region, contrary to Washington officials, is not the American people and their security. Rather, it is the military industrial complex.

  3. May I just say what a relief to find an individual who actually understands what they’re talking about on the internet. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people really need to check this out and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you’re not more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.
