    Fifty-five years after the notorious failure of an Israeli sabotage operation in Egypt, Military Intelligence has finally gotten around to figuring out what went wrong. The answer? Pretty much everything.

    The Lavon affair – also known locally as esek habish, ”the rotten business” – was a plan to discredit Egypt’s government, then headed by Gamal Abdel Nasser, by bombing theaters, post offices and U.S. and British institutions, and making it seem as though Egypt was behind the bombings. The thinking in Israel at the time was that if the British were to give up control of the Suez Canal, it would be left in Egypt’s hands, putting Cairo in a better position to exert pressure on Israel.

    The agents were told ”to undermine the West’s trust in the [Egyptian] government by causing public insecurity” while concealing Israel’s role in the sabotage.

    Code-named Operation Susannah, the incident led to the dismissal of Binyamin Gibli, the MI chief at the time, and the resignations of then-defense minister Pinhas Lavon and ultimately, the prime minister, David Ben-Gurion. In the years after the incident came to light, public debate centered around the question of who gave the order for the operation to go forward.

    This incident took place many years ago. I am sure that the agencies behind such incidents have gotten MUCH better in their implementation.

    Tech Companies hoard cash overseas

    U.S. companies are stockpiling really huge amounts of cash in offshore accounts.

    But, it turns out, the two most vocal proponents concerning the tax rules that incentivize companies to avoid moving cash into the U.S., Cisco and Apple, aren’t even the ones with the biggest stashes.

    Microsoft’s pile of foreign cash is way bigger.

    A lot of the money sitting overseas was earned overseas, but some of it is put there through accounting methods to avoid U.S. taxes, a situation that Congress has recently been investigating. If these companies want to spend that money in the U.S. to make an acquisition or hire a bunch of new employees, Uncle Sam wants to take a 35% cut.

    Rehab racket: Frauds, felons and fakes – Center for Investigative Reporting

    In a rehab racket plagued by regulatory holes, paperwork trumps reality, a yearlong investigation by The Center for Investigative Reporting and CNN has found.

    Thousands of pages of government records and dozens of interviews with counselors, patients and regulators reveal a widespread scheme to bilk the state’s Medicaid system, the nation’s largest. The populous Los Angeles region is one of the nation’s top hot spots for health care fraud, and former state officials agree it is also ground zero for the rehab racket.

    Drug Medi-Cal paid out $94 million in the past two fiscal years to 56 clinics in Southern California that have shown signs of deception or questionable billing practices, representing half of all public funding to the program, CIR and CNN found. Over the past six years, more than half a billion dollars have poured into the program statewide.

    The simple stakeout on April 4 raises questions about the adequacy of government oversight of the program to help the poor and addicted, built on an honor system in which honor often is lacking. Oversight is marred by infrequent and cursory inspections and by a failure to act even when red flags appear.

    Government officials who try to root out fraud clash with weak regulations, bureaucratic apathy and corruption in their own ranks. Once open, bad clinics rarely are shut down. CIR and CNN identified a dozen clinics caught cheating the system that not only remained in business, but also were rewarded with more public funds.

    *** It seems that our current government system is so rife with lack of accountability, or even COMMON sense concerning the WASTE of tax payer dollars, it begins to beg the question of WHY WE will continue to allow our HUGE government entities to have access to OUR hard earned money. Seems there is a total apathetic mindset when it comes to spending OUR money.

    And WE ALLOW IT!

    Breaking the Banks – A Hearld-Tribune Investigation

    In Florida’s banking debacle, plenty of blame to go around. **Criminals ARE STILL NOT in jail and MANY are still working IN the banking industry**

    **While this investigation concerns FL banks, it is a GREAT example of the LARGER banking scandal affecting the 2008 recession**

    Pass it on to other’s that may NOT understand

      The POWER of the investigation is due to the examination of state banking records – Not possible in OTHER states!!!!!!!!

      ”To investigate the reasons for Florida’s bank failures, the Herald-Tribune obtained state banking reports that had never before been made public. The documents are so secret that even federal judges have kept them sealed in court filings.

      But these examinations become public record one year after a bank fails thanks to a law passed by the Florida Legislature in 1992. No other state permits access to such reports until at least 50 years after a failure.”

      ************************** THERE’S THAT 50 year RULE again *************************

          because they are paid to do so, and they can with little fear of repercussions.

    Survey: Majority in U.S. will face near-poverty

    http://www.delawareonline.com/viewart/20130729/NEWS/307290049/Survey-Majority-in-U-S-will-face-near-poverty

    “Poverty is no longer an issue of ‘them’, it’s an issue of ‘us’,” says Mark Rank, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis who calculated the numbers. “Only when poverty is thought of as a mainstream event, rather than a fringe experience that just affects blacks and Hispanics, can we really begin to build broader support for programs that lift people in need.”

    Meet the Republicans who vote against food stamps while getting millions in farm subsidies

    http://bit.ly/17ykxOH

    There’s a new category in the Hardhearted Hypocrite Republican Hall of Fame. Joining, among many other categories, those who voted against the stimulus, then bragged about the stimulus funding that came into their districts; those who oppose disaster relief until a disaster hits their own state; and those who’ve screamed outrage over Democrats engaging in procedural tactics that are just fine when done by Republicans: Republicans who get big farm subsidies but voted to slash food stamps in the current farm bill.
