[AJC] It’s hard to stand out when you are in a sea of thousands of frustrated, sign-waving protesters. But in marches and demonstrations over the past week in Atlanta, Decatur and even Cumming, a small knot of charismatic young people kept getting photographed.
They said they were Black Panthers, and they looked the part with all-black attire and black berets adorned with a cat-head patch. Their leader was a tall, thin black woman armed with an assault rifle and a determined look. Photos of the group popped up in local news outlets, including The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, but also in the British tabloid press.
Within a few days, an activist on Twitter sussed out that the group was comprised of models and actors from Atlanta’s film and entertainment industries. A Twitter user who goes by Wolf The Red identified them from their Instagram accounts where he found the group modeling haute couture or publicizing their film credits, but "zero prior demonstrations. No posts with guns. No calls to action."
Many are asking why hasn’t oil and gas production started in libya. Because a week ago The CEO of the NOC Mustafa Sanalah said : there will be now equal distribution of wealth in libya & all funds will go to Tripoli. Note the Sanalah is one of the libya Muslim fighting group. pic.twitter.com/7av5m4RFjm

The combination of rig hands who dwell along a spectrum of disgruntled to highly disgruntled, feuding land/mineral/surface owners, sticky fingered locals, and 'quirky' leo's is always a recipe for abundant gun play. But even I would draw the line at indirect fire and air strikes.
He explained that what happened in Syria is the biggest piece evidence that those Kurds fighting against extremism are American partners with whom the US shares the same goals, and are not enemies or terrorists.https://t.co/OyChO6RxpW
1. Why is Turkey (and really for that matter, we) in NATO?
2. Why do we have any military personnel in Turkey (other than the military liaison at the embassy)?
Time to fire a good load of general grade officers who've obstructed the removal of our presence in the place. Same clown car that said we'd lose the Pacific if we were forced to leave the Philippines.
The #US will be deporting Kassim Tajideen, a Lebanese financier of #Hezbollah, despite government opposition to a judicial order granting an emergency request for compassionate release, according to Lebanese media.https://t.co/d0QKBo9lBh
Lebanese media said that Tajideen was en route to Beirut on June 7 and would land "within hours." However, an official from the US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said that he was still in custody as of Tuesday night.
[BREITBART] The deadly January U.S. dronezap that eliminated Iran’s terror commander Qasem Soleimani and nine other people was a violation of international law, a U.N. human rights ...which are usually open to widely divergent definitions... investigator claimed Monday.The United States has failed to provide sufficient evidence of an ongoing or imminent attack against its interests to justify the strike on General Soleimani’s convoy as it left Baghdad airport, lamented U.N. special rapporteur Agnes Callamard a full six months after the event.
The attack violated the U.N. Charter, Callamard alleged in a report calling for accountability for assassinations by armed drones and for greater regulation of the weapons.
"The world is at a critical time, and possible tipping point, when it comes to the use of drones. ... The Security Council is missing in action; the international community, willingly or not, stands largely silent," Callamard, an independent investigator, told Rooters.
Soleimani directed Iranian military operations abroad, including terror strikes in third party states. Just one week before his death, he is thought to have directed rocket attacks that killed an American civilian contractor in Iraq.
A United Nations "scolding?" I recommend it be worn as a badge of honor.

What Trump ought to do is every time the UN comes out with one of these idiotic reports, drop $1,000,000 from our contribution.

Consider us properly chastised. We solemnly promise not to do it again until next time.
Is there really such a thing as UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions? Not to be cruel, but it sounds like a useless, make-work position.
