"Some of the critical players in President Obama’s national security team doubt his strategy in Afghanistan will succeed and have spent much of the last 20 months quarreling with one another over policy, personalities and turf, according to a new book."
A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that Edwards was pulled over on the west side of Manhattan around 5:15 a.m. Tuesday because his vehicle had excessive tinting on its windows. The official says police noticed a strong smell of alcohol and arrested Edwards. The official was not authorized to speak about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.
In January, Edwards was put on probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor aggravated disorderly conduct in Cleveland.
Edwards was expected to be arraigned later Tuesday.
"We are very disappointed in Braylon's actions this morning," Mike Tannenbaum, general manager of the Jets, said in a statement on the team's website. "The Player Protect program is in place for our organization to prevent this situation. Braylon is aware of this program and showed poor judgment.
"We are reviewing the information with the league and will impose the appropriate disciplinary measures."
Just before he was traded to the Jets from the Browns in October 2009, Edwards was accused of punching a friend of basketball star LeBron James outside a Cleveland nightclub.
Edwards settled the case by pleading no contest to aggravated assault. He received a suspended 180-day jail sentence, and was fined $1,000 and placed on probation.
ATHENS (Reuters) – Greek police charged two U.S. tourists with desecrating the dead on Thursday after they found six human skulls in their hand luggage at Athens international airport, a police official said.
"The skulls were found in a scanner check during a stop-over in Athens on their way back to the United States," said a police official who requested anonymity. "The coroner confirmed they were human skulls."
The two young tourists said they had bought the skulls in a souvenir shop on the island of Mykonos and believed they were fake, the official said, adding they had been released pending trial.
New York's 21st congressional district is an oddity in New York politics: Democratic by design, but still Conservative by default. The cities of Albany, Amsterdam, and Troy dominate, but the rural communities of Canajoharie, Cobleskill, and Rensserlaerville are still important.
The people live conservatively, hunt religiously, and are bound by tradition. They don't oppose the private ownership of firearms, and they expect honesty from their representatives. I might be a simpleton, but those are good qualities for a viable citizenry.
Which is why I must the expose the truth about Congressman Paul Tonko, a man who the local citizenry elected not on political policy, but on personal demeanor. Tonko hasn't gouged the tax payers via expensive congressional travel, nor has he requested any wasteful earmarks during his first term in office.
But he has aligned himself with extreme big government interests, and with dishonest members of his own political party.
According to Open Congress, a well respected website that tracks congressional votes, and the individual votes of Congressmen, Mr.Tonko has voted with Speaker Pelosi 100% of the time since joining the House of Representatives. And it does get worse: Mr.Tonko and Charles Rangel, one of the most corrupt members of Congress, think so much alike (98% of their votes are alike) that Mr.Tonko even donated five hundred dollars to the Rangel Victory Fund last summer.
That money was donated after Rangel's corrupt ways were revealed.
Mr.Tonko has also accepted the Endorsement of the Working Families Party, which as you might remember from last year's special election involving Dede Scozzafava and Doug Hoffman, is closely associated with ACORN (Bertha Lewis ran both ACORN and the NY Working Families Party from the same office), and advocates for socialism to replace our current capitialistic based society.
In conclusion, Mr.Tonko might be a man of friendly demeanor, but what good does it do for us when the man behind the demeanor supports a San Francisco liberal unanimously, a corrupted politician financially, and a socialistic Party unabashedly.
It's time to demand honest government for a change.
Five men have been arrested in London and were being questioned over an alleged threat to Pope Benedict XVI on the second day of his tour of Britain, police said Friday.
The men, between the ages of 26 and 50, were arrested under the Terrorism Act at a business in central London. They were being questioned at a London police station and had not been charged.
Police declined to say whether the men were British or give details of their ethnicity. However, the BBC reported the men were not British nationals. Sources told Sky News that the suspects were Algerians.
