Enrique Ferro's insight:
And who are these noncombatants, a military term that refers to civilians who are not engaged in fighting? They are, according to the Pentagon, “adversaries.” They are “threats.” They are the “enemy.” They are people who don’t support the government, people who live in fast-growing urban communities, people who may be less well-off economically than the government and corporate elite, people who engage in protests, people who are unemployed, people who engage in crime (in keeping with the government’s fast-growing, overly broad definition of what constitutes a crime). In other words, in the eyes of the U.S. military, noncombatants are American citizens a.k.a. domestic extremists a.k.a. enemy combatants who must be identified, targeted, detained, contained and, if necessary, eliminated. - See more at: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/46487.htm#sthash.Q2gkVtFp.dpuf

It strains credulity to believe that if you're on your way to Libya to discuss Libyan policy that there has not been a single document has been turned over to Congress. There are huge gaps." This, we now know, is because Clinton conducted all her government business on her own email account linked to her very own email server set up in violation of the Federal Records Act the day she was confirmed as secretary of state.

Trump takes feud with press to campaign rally in Florida

“We’re fighting battles that no longer help us,” Trump said. “We’re fighting battles that other people aren’t treating us fairly in the fight. I’m a NATO fan, but many of the countries in NATO, many of the countries that we protect, many of these countries are very rich countries. They’re not paying their bills.”
Enrique Ferro's insight:
“The dishonest media, which has published one false story after another with no sources, even though they pretend they have them – they make them up in many cases. They just don’t want to report the truth.”
