• Gen. Dempsey: China takes no ownership of cyber attack on U.S.

    On the Radar

    The Pentagon officially blamed China of cyber attacks against the United States in a new report, but America's top military official Gen. Martin Dempsey told ABC’s Bob Woodruff in an exclusive interview during his recent trip to Beijing that China is not claiming responsibility for such attacks.

    "Of course, they admit there is criminal activity in cyber, they take no ownership for it," the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in an interview with On the Radar. "I was very candid about our concerns."

    Gen. Dempsey, who met with top Chinese leaders including President Xi Jinping and the military leader Gen. Fan Changlong during his three-day-long tour, warned that cyber warfare is a serious concern in the U.S. relationship with China.

    "There are state and non-state actors and individuals acting that I think we need to understand what we are each doing, and we have to also understand where this could go, where the future could take us in cyber, and we need to take that

  • What a waste: Four easy cuts to save us $27.5 billion

    Power Players

    Government buildings sitting empty and unused, many flights to rural airports that carry practically no passengers, and minimum milk prices are based on the gallon’s distance from Eau Claire, Wis.

    These are just a few of the 557 government programs and subsidies that the non-profit Citizens Against Government Waste says could be eliminated to save taxpayers close to $2 trillion over the next five years. Tom Schatz, president of Citizens Against Government Waste, tells Power Players about some highlights from the organization’s annual suggested cuts, which are outlined in the book, “Prime Cuts 2013.”

    He points to agriculture subsidies, such as the sugar subsidy--that Citizens Against Government Waste says inflates the U.S. price of sugar to nearly twice the world average sugar price--as one of the areas where outdated programs are draining taxpayers’ wallets unnecessarily.

    “It's an old style Soviet command and control program,” Schatz says. “By eliminating the sugar

  • Out there: Former Sen. Mike Gravel says White House suppressing evidence of ETs

    Top Line

    Even as most Americans wonder what planet politicians are from, is it possible that the government is squelching evidence of extraterrestrials visiting Earth? One former presidential hopeful says yes – and that the conspiracy goes all the way to the top.

    Former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska) says the White House has helped keep the truth about the “extraterrestrial influence that is investigating our planet” from the public.

    “It goes right to the White House, and of course, once the White House takes a position, ‘well there's nothing going on’...it just goes down the chain of command, everyone stands toe,” Gravel tells Top Line.

    Gravel is one of six former congress representatives who were paid $20,000 by the UFO advocacy group Paradigm Research to participate in a Congressional-style Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington this week, where witness after witness has presented first-hand accounts of UFO sightings and extraterrestrial visits.
