    Chief Minister of Gujarat criticized for doing little to stop anti-Muslim riots in 2012

    Gujarat communal riots were 2002, not 2012. Old news. But will be made very relevant now that he is on road to become the face of the opposition coalition for the coming general election in India.

    Everybody should listen to the interview of Edward Snowden.

    The White House is out today saying that they are doing nothing illegal, but Snowden is saying that there is a new system in the works that will provide the “next President” with “turnkey tyranny.”

    I blame a typo in the BBC article.

    It may not be illegal under the Patriot Act, but it sure as hell violates the 4th Amendment.

    Just checked, I don’t see any such typo–or a correction–in the BBC article, Wombat. I’m assuming you simply misread.
