United States Accused of Planting Avian Flu in Recent H7N9 Outbreak
Janet C. PhelanActivist Post Amidst allegations by a highly placed Colonel in the Chinese army that the U.S. has released a bioweapon in Mainland China, concerns are ramping up that this year's version of the avian flu, H7N9, may turn into a major pandemic.

How the NSA Gets Away With Domestic Spying NSA Data Storage Installation Newly leaked National Security Agency documents published by the Guardian reveal that the NSA can scour vast databases of personal information by searching for the names, email addresses and other identifiers of United States citizens. More than two months after the Guardian first published leaked NSA files attributed to former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, the paper wrote Friday that their source has also supplied documents showing that the US intelligence community can conduct warrantless searches of communications tied to Americans that are collected under legal authority provided through the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
