Waxman alleging muzzling in Blackwater-Iraq inquiry

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The State Department said it was cooperating with the committee and is providing the information requested. “Blackwater has been informed that the State Department has no objection to it providing information to the committee,” said Tom Casey, a State Department spokesman. “We have offered to make available for testimony those officials in the best position to respond to the specific issues the committee has raised.” Waxman said his staff was told Monday that State Department officials with what he called “direct knowledge of corruption within the Maliki government” were barred from giving the committee “assessments which judge or characterize the quality of Iraqi governance,” or Baghdad’s ability to address corruption, unless the material was withheld from the public. In the Blackwater matter, Waxman said the company claimed that the State Department insisted on reviewing and approving any documents the company gave to the committee. He also said Rice has refused to testify before his committee about the status of political reconciliation in Iraq and potential corruption in the Blackwater incident. Rice has ordered a review of security practices for U.S. diplomats in Iraq after the killing of 11 Iraqis this month while Blackwater guards were protecting a U.S. Embassy convoy. WASHINGTON – A House lawmaker on Tuesday complained to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice about the alleged muzzling of State Department officials in inquiries involving Blackwater USA and Iraq’s government. Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said the State Department had informed the committee that State employees could not discuss potential corruption in the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki unless the information was treated as a national security secret. Blackwater USA, the North Carolina-based security contractor involved in the deaths of civilians in Iraq this month, has also claimed that the State Department had banned company communication with Waxman’s investigators, the lawmaker said. “I urge you to reconsider the unusual positions you are taking,” Waxman wrote to Rice. “You are wrong to interfere with the committee’s inquiry.” last_img read more

Unsuspecting Mother Lets Son’s Killer in the House

first_imgWHITTIER — Detectives searched Friday for a gunman who shot and killed an 18-year-old man inside his home in an unincorporated area south of Whittier after being let in by the victim’s unsuspecting mother, authorities said. Michael Reynoso was shot around 9:50 p.m. Thursday at his home in the 7800 block of Vicki Drive, near Mines Boulevard, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Oscar Butao. Reynoso’s mother told deputies that a Latino man in his early 20s came to her door and asked for her son, Butao said. Believing the man was her son’s friend, she asked her son to come to the door, he said. As she walked away from the door, she heard several gunshots, then found her son with multiple wounds to his chest, Butao said. Reynoso was taken to a hospital, where he was declared dead, Butao said. The gunman fled on foot and remained at large. Detectives did not immediately determine if the shooting was gang-related, Butao said. Anyone with information about the killing is asked to call sheriff’s homicide detectives at (323) 890-5500.

Case adjourned for man charged with dangerous driving causing death of two friends

first_imgThe case of a man charged with dangerous driving causing the death of two friends has been adjourned to the next term of Letterkenny Circuit Court.Friends Kiara Baird (19), and mother-of-three Maria Wallace (38), died after the car in which they were passengers crashed at Glenfin Road, Ballybofey on September 21st, 2016. The women died instantly after the Citroën C3 car in which they were travelling was involved in a collision with a pole.Dermot Dowd (24), of Donegal Road, Ballybofey, who is in custody on other charges, is charged with dangerous driving causing the deaths of the two pals.Family members of the two women were in court this morning, when Judge John O’Hagan granted an adjournment.Barrister for the accused, Mr Peter Nolan, said he had only received the book of evidence for the case yesterday and applied for the adjournment ‘in the interest of justice’.“I am very conscious of the trauma the two families are going through,” Judge O’Hagan said.“I am also conscious that relatives of Kiara Baird and Maria Wallace are in court. I am doing what I am doing principally on the presumption of innocence. Secondly, it is obliged that a book of evidence be served. The defence can weigh it up, assess it and decide what to do. It appears as if this was only served two days ago in what is a very serious case.“The other fact is that the accused Mr Dowd is in custody under other matters so, consequently, he is entitled to an early trial because he is in custody.“I am aware of the pressures you are under, but this particular case should be adjourned to the next term.”Judge O’Hagan also warned that trial dates will not be arranged to suit any engineers who may be required to give evidence in the trial.He said: “I have had experience in the past where engineers try to ‘engineer’, so to speak, a trial date that suits them. That is not to be tolerated’.The scene of the double fatality.

LEAVING CERT RESULT COUNTDOWN – THROUGH THE EYES OF DONEGAL STUDENTS

first_imgIt’s hard to believe that a year has passed since the class of 2012 received their Leaving Certificate results.Across the county, thousands of pupils experienced one of the most daunting days in a student’s life. By Caoimhe Ní ChathailTomorrow, the very same will be the case for the class of 2013. After a stressful year, those few weeks of exam chaos and a summer which seemed to disappear in the blink of an eye, results day is almost upon us.Donegal Daily took the opportunity this week to interview some of these students from various schools in Donegal who will tomorrow find out just how hard they worked!In order to maintain a sense of privacy for the students, we have only included their first names. Over the next week they will be interviewed three times; before results, after results and after the first college offers; an insight into the beginning of the future for some of Donegal’s teenagers!Gavin:Gavin describes 6th year as ‘the fastest year of them all’, a sentiment which seems to be the first thought of many past pupils!He started studying at the end of November and after so many months of hard work, found that the exams ‘sounded scarier than they turned out to be’.Alongside his study, Gavin remained active to ward off fear which was affecting those around him. His biggest problem throughout the exams was Maths Paper I, where as he put it himself, ‘they messed up’.Gavin plans to study Maths & Computer Science and as he awaits his results knows that he no longer has any effect over them! His aim is to remain calm and not to allow any anxiety to rub off on others. Síofra:Síofra describes the hardest part of 6th year as ‘the normalising of a low-level, chewy sort of stress, the vague feeling that even if there was nothing to do, I still ought to be doing something’ and not in fact the exams.The monotony, the learning of the same thing over and over, ‘until formulae became as ingrained as the twenty six letters of the alphabet’ was another thing. Síofra describes ‘civilian life’, as she puts it, once the summer arrived, as more difficult than she thought it would be.She found doing nothing to be terrifying after ‘nine months of having information constantly “on demand”. Síofra has decided to leave the results ‘in the lap of the gods’. As she says, ‘I’ve done my bit, I’ll leave the rest of it to the Curve. All I can do now is hope.’Shane:6th year went well for Shane, in his opinion. His biggest challenges were, ‘getting the projects done in time and getting study time in’.The beginning of the exams were nerve-wracking, but as they went on Shane found it easier to deal with any nerves. He says that the exams ‘went much better than I had expected.’Shane was quite confident about his results but he is now finding that ‘the nerves are creeping in again.’Martina:Martina believes that 6th year ‘isn’t as bad as it’s made out to be’. She does however admit that she was fortunate enough not to be under too much pressure points-wise and so the worst part of her 6th year experience was ‘the constant nagging from mum about not studying enough’!Martina advises future Leaving Certificate students to work consistently throughout the year so as to avoid enormous amounts of pressure at the end of the year, ‘slow and steady wins the race’.She feels excited for the results after many weeks of waiting, ‘Hopefully I have done myself justice. Time will tell!’We wish Gavin, Síofra, Shane, Martina and all those receiving Leaving Certificate results tomorrow in Donegal and all around the country the very best of luck.

Former GAA star McGee reveals horrific family abuse over pro-choice stand

first_imgFormer Donegal GAA star Eamon McGee has revealed he has received horrific online abuse for supporting the Yes vote in the forthcoming referendum on the Eighth Amendment.The Gaoth Dobhair man recently reopened his Facebook campaign after closing it down sometime back after getting tired of the online commentary.But he has now revealed how he has been hit with nasty online abuse for his opinion in the referendum. The outspoken pundit said this really “jarred him.”“People brought the twins into it and that jarred with me. Maybe it was down to the lack of sleep but I was really annoyed over it.“To bring our twins into it when you’re calling me a baby-killer….that’s more about where they’re at than where I’m at.“I talked to my partner and she wasn’t worried, just saying there are idiots out there. “That’s where we are on social media. People do go down that route,” he said.McGee also spoke in his Irish Daily Star column about how his former team-mate and friend Paddy McGrath has come out supporting the No vote and he says he is fine with that.“I know Paddy and I know he comes from a position of genuineness.“If you search your conscience and feel that’s what you have to do, then that’s fine.“I was in the trenches long enough with Paddy to know that’s exactly what he’s done. “His conscience is clear, as is mine,” said Eamon.Former GAA star McGee reveals horrific family abuse over pro-choice stand was last modified: May 3rd, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:abuseEamon McGeereferendumtwinsYESlast_img read more

Is It Better to Downscale Before or After Editing?

first_imgLearn the best time to downscale in the following video tutorial by Dave Dugdale.If you want to make you computer run 4 times slower than necessary go ahead and edit 4K footage instead of 1080…or at least that’s what Dave Dugdale seems to say in the following video!The left side of this frame was edited in 1080 and the right side was edited in 4K.As cameras progress faster than broadcasters can keep up, downscaling 4K footage will continue to be an annoying yet necessary reality. With this new workflow comes new questions that need to be answered in regards to downscaling. Thankfully Dave Dugdale has created a helpful video answering one of the most basic downscaling questions, “When is the best time to downscale?” The video covers:Downscaling footageAnalyzing SharpnessRAW WorkflowsDave is using the popular Panasonic GH4. If you haven’t had a chance to see the test footage from the GH4, it’s really impressive! Check out our sharpness analysis post where the GH4 goes head to head with a Mark III and RED Epic.In short, the video surmises that while there isn’t a better way to downscale footage there is definitely a fast way. Instead of editing your entire project in 4K then exporting to 1080, you can save yourself a lot of time and RAM by setting your video editing sequence settings to HD.This video was first shared on Dave Dugdale’s YouTube Channel. Thanks for sharing Dave!Is Dave correct? Is there really no difference between downscaling during or after editing? Share in the comments below.last_img read more
