Witness: Navy SEAL called dead prisoner an 'ISIS dirtbag'


Witness: Navy SEAL called dead prisoner an 'ISIS dirtbag' A Navy SEAL charged with killing a captive teenage militant in his care had told fellow troops that if they encountered a wounded enemy, he wanted medics to know how "to nurse him to death," a former comrade testified Wednesday. When a radio call announced an Islamic State prisoner was wounded on May 3, 2017, Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher replied: "Don't touch him, he's all mine," Dylan Dille told jurors in a military courtroom. When Iraqi forces delivered the captive to a SEAL compound in Mosul, he was on the hood of a Humvee and fading in an out of consciousness with only a minor leg wound visible.

Train derails near Nevada-Utah line; no injuries reported


Train derails near Nevada-Utah line; no injuries reported A train carrying military munitions derailed in the high desert of northeast Nevada on Wednesday, closing an interstate for about an hour before emergency crews determined there was no danger. Cars carrying the munitions to a Nevada Army depot were not among those that derailed near the community of Wells not far from the Utah-Nevada state line, officials said. Nine flat cars, two tankers and three box cars on the 22-car train derailed at about 10 a.m., and a plume of white aluminum oxide was released, the Nevada Highway Patrol said.

New accountability report finds NASA has been paying Boeing huge bonuses for failing


New accountability report finds NASA has been paying Boeing huge bonuses for failing Between its various ongoing Mars missions, orbiters studying asteroids and other planets, and a Moon trip on the horizon, NASA spends a lot of money. Boeing, which has contracts with NASA to build the rocket for its Space Launch System (SLS) is a big recipient of that cash, and a new government accountability report reveals that NASA has not only been paying more and more despite Boeing falling way behind on its deadlines, it's actually also been paying the company bonuses for its performance. As Ars Technica explains, the new government report is somewhat troubling, especially when you consider that the SLS program has now fallen well behind schedule. The Space Launch System has been in the works since the early 2010s and is designed to give NASA the power it needs to launch missions to the Moon and Mars. For starters, NASA just wants it to send an empty Orion spacecraft around the Moon, but those plans have had to be delayed since the rocket simply won't be ready in time. NASA has apparently been fudging the numbers a bit with regards to how much the whole program is going to cost, and while the agency already acknowledged cost overruns totaling around a billion dollars, the reality is even worse: > While NASA acknowledges about $1 billion in cost growth for the SLS program, it is understated. This is because NASA shifted some planned SLS scope to future missions but did not reduce the program’s cost baseline accordingly. When GAO reduced the baseline to account for the reduced scope, the cost growth is about $1.8 billion.Oof. On top of that, the report reveals that NASA has been paying Boeing what amounts to performance bonuses for its role in the program. Audits of the company's performance on the SLS rocket have received several positive ratings from NASA assessors, leading to "award fees" of $271 million to be paid to the company. > NASA paid over $200 million in award fees from 2014-2018 related to contractor performance on the SLS stages and Orion spacecraft contracts. But the programs continue to fall behind schedule and overrun costs.Lovely. Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Tucker Carlson Finds It ‘Painful’ to Watch Trans Women Athletes ‘Stealing Athletic Opportunities From Girls’


Tucker Carlson Finds It ‘Painful’ to Watch Trans Women Athletes ‘Stealing Athletic Opportunities From Girls’ AP/ShutterstockIf history is any judge, Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his producers apparently follow that old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” when it comes to the topic of transgender Americans.Let me first make a full disclosure: I am a transgender woman, and I worked in television news for 30 years, including at two of the networks where Carlson once earned a big fat paycheck. I’ve also appeared on another Fox News show to discuss the issue of trans athletes. But I don’t know the man.Despite that, he seems to have a rather unhealthy interest in women like me, especially for a married guy.Admittedly, this could also be said about Laura Ingraham, The Five, and any number of programs on Fox News Channel. But no show at Fox has been as consistent on the topic of trans Americans as Tucker Carlson Tonight, or as a trans friend of mine calls it, “Tucked Crotch Tonight.”Parker Molloy, a transgender writer based in Chicago and editor at large for Media Matters, has been keeping a tally. Following the latest episode she tweeted a thread about this phenomenon she’s observed: at least 13 shows on trans issues since Tucker Carlson Tonight premiered in 2016 (she later corrected the total to 14 with help from an eagle-eyed follower).Molloy went on to note, “The segments are virtually identical to each other. ‘Are women’s sports soon to be a think of the past? Hello, I am a genuinely concerned cable TV host who isn’t just doing this because it lets me get a jab in at trans people wink wink.’ Sometimes it’s not even a new story. He’s used the same news pegs for multiple stories.”And she created this graphic to illustrate her point, calling it evidence of “a sick obsession of his”:Carlson himself would not directly comment on Molloy’s accusation of having an “obsession.”In a statement to The Daily Beast, Carlson wrote, “Probably because I have three daughters, it’s painful to watch biological men steal athletic opportunities from girls. And it’s completely bewildering to watch so-called progressives cheer it on. They should be ashamed.”The topic of transgender athletes is indeed a controversial one. It’s true that even some LGBTQ advocates cannot agree on what the correct solution is, but the International Olympic Committee, NCAA, and many state policies favor inclusion of trans women athletes within certain guidelines on hormone suppression, and allow use of testosterone for trans men. One look at any record book will reveal that transgender competitors simply don’t dominate any sport, or event, or win every race or contest.And as for that watchword, “biological men,” sorry, Tucker. Everyone is biological, and we all have biology. Therefore, I am a biological woman. The word they don’t want to use, of course, is “cisgender,” which is derived from the Latin meaning “same.” Trans women are not cis women; on that we can agree.As I wrote for Outsports (where I am managing editor), Carlson most recently reported the story of three cisgender high school students in Connecticut, who have filed a federal civil rights complaint with the U.S. Department of Education against Connecticut’s statewide policy allowing transgender girls to compete with them.“Stories about so-called dominant trans athletes are cherry-picked for use in moral panic narratives by far-right outlets,” Molloy wrote for Columbia Journalism Review in May 2019.Although I’ve known Molloy for seven years, we’ve never met face to face. And while she declined an invitation to comment here, she did confirm for me that she is politically progressive, something that is also clear from her writing.The site where she is editor at large, Media Matters, identifies itself as a “Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.” Since 2004, it’s earned a reputation as a far-left watchdog famous for its daily take-downs of America’s number one-rated cable news network. Today’s headline: “Trump and Fox News may start a war.”Just who is Carlson trying to reach with his anti-transgender rhetoric? Liz Lenz did some digging for CJR in September 2018:“Since Bill O’Reilly was fired from Fox News in October 2017, Carlson has cannibalized O’Reilly’s audience. According to Nielsen Media Research, the top-rated markets for the show are Ft. Myers, Florida; Knoxville, Tennessee; Jackson Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Four charged over MH17, Russia slams 'unfounded allegations'


Four charged over MH17, Russia slams 'unfounded allegations' International investigators on Wednesday charged three Russians and a Ukrainian with murder over the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, the first people to face justice over the tragedy five years ago in which 298 people were killed. The trial of the four men with military and intelligence links will start in the Netherlands in March next year, although they are likely to be tried in absentia as neither Russia nor Ukraine extradites their nationals. Moscow slammed the "absolutely unfounded accusations" over the downing of the plane, which was travelling between Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur when it was hit by a missile over part of eastern Ukraine held by pro-Russian rebels.
