Take action w/ Amnesty Intl: Compassionate Release for Herman Wallace of the Angola 3!
In response to the tragic news that Herman Wallace is terminally ill with cancer, Amnesty International has launched a campaign calling for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal to immediately release Herman on humanitarian grounds. "After decades of cruel conditions and a conviction that continues to be challenged by the courts, he should be released immediately to his family so that he can be cared for humanely during his last months," says Tessa Murphy, USA campaigner, about Herman Wallace.

9/11, the Marathon Bombing, and the Security-Industrial Complex
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings and subsequent manhunt and shootout, speculation has been rife about the attack being a "false flag operation", that is, a terrorist attack arranged by government agents for the purpose of scapegoating a particular group or nation, an example being the Reichstag fire. It's certainly not impossible. A government willing to commit similar atrocities on a daily basis by means of drone attacks in Pakistan is hardly above suspicion just because this attack occurred on US soil.

The conspiracy theorists are missing a more important point, however. Even if Tamerlan Tsarnaev wasn't secretly working for the CIA, the Marathon attack did a huge favor for the US security-industrial complex.

Massachusetts NLG Calls For Explanation of Warrantless Searches
Boston, Friday, April 26, 2013: The National Lawyers Guild, Massachusetts
Chapter (NLG) continues to express its sympathy to those who were wounded and to
those who lost family members in the April 15 bombings and in the events of the
following days. We join in the hope for recovery and healing.

While we appreciate that public safety rules usually serve a legitimate purpose in
times of crisis in order to protect and maintain an orderly society, our legal
system includes other important protections derived from the U.S. Constitution.
Those protections must be upheld, especially in the aftermath of crisis. Indeed,
those protections are designed for times of crisis. If constitutional protections
are denied to some of us, they may one day be denied to all of us.
