Nation of Islam founder and notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan defended Representative Ilhan Omar's glib description of the September 11 attacks Monday by dismissing the attacks as nothing more than a false-flag operation designed to draw the U.S. into Middle Eastern conflicts. In a video posted to YouTube last year and tweeted out Monday by the Nation of Islam account, Farrakhan accuses the Bush administration of orchestrating the 9/11 attacks in order “to get the country into war at the expense of young patriotic men and women.

For the moment, Assange is being housed at London's Belmarsh Prison.
National monuments pose a myriad of problems when it comes to insuring them as the fire at Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris shows. "It doesn't use an insurance company ... which is the case with a certain number of chateaux, it is a choice," said Dominique de la Fouchardiere, head of the SLA Verspieren firm, a specialist in insuring historical monuments and chateaux.

The document will be closely scrutinized for any new disclosures of contacts between President Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian operatives who interfered in the 2016 election, as well as any evidence that would show whether the president sought to obstruct justice by interfering in the probe.

Apple Inc and Qualcomm Inc on Tuesday opened a complex trial with the iPhone maker using a fried chicken analogy to illustrate its claim the chip company is abusing its market power while Qualcomm alleged a years-long plan by Apple to deprive it of billions in revenue, $13 at a time. The fate of Qualcomm's business model, which involves licensing more than 130,000 patents in addition to selling chips, is at stake in the case, which consolidates related lawsuits and countersuits. Apple alleges that Qualcomm's patent practices were an illegal move to maintain a monopoly on the market for premium modem chips that connect smart phones to wireless data networks.
The veto — the second in Trump's presidency — was expected, and Congress lacks the votes to override it. "This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future," Trump wrote in explaining his Tuesday veto.
