And on Wednesday morning, n Read more ... ews broke of a horrifying mass shooting at satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in France that left 12 dead and several wounded. Both acts were motivated by radical ideology, but only one of them is being covered by the 24-hour news cycle. What gives? According to Ebony senior digital editor Jamilah Lemieux, it's because we rush to label attacks carried out by non-whites as "terrorism," but when the perpetrator is white, we view those cases as isolated acts of violence."

Although no-one was injured, the NAACP has called it an act of domestic terrorism. US congressman John Lewis, an influential leader of the civil rights movement, tweeted: "I am deeply troubled by the bombing in Colorado. It reminds me of another period. These stories cannot be swept under the rug." The bombing was reportedly committed by a balding, white American man in his 40s, who drove a pickup truck. A day later, three Islamic extremists stormed the offices of newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris, killing 12 people including journalists and police officers. The Paris shooting has since dominated media outlets, with many news channels providing rolling coverage of the terrorist act. Frustrated by the lack of coverage on the NAACP bombing, social media users began tweeting out the perceived differences between how white, black and Muslim extremists are treated by the media. The hashtag #NAACPBombing trended worldwide on Twitter on Wednesday. One black activist and blogger Zellie Imani wrote: "White supremacy means that the #NAACPbombing suspect, though potentially armed & dangerous, will be apprehended unharmed. Because whiteness." Senior digital at EBONY, Jamilah Lemieux tweeted: "Today's news will assert that a crazy, White outlier attempted to bomb an NAACP office, and that Islam carried out a terror attack in Paris." The NAACP said in a statement: "The cause of the explosion is still unknown. The NAACP looks forward to a full and thorough investigation into this matter by federal agents and local law enforcement." Founded in 1909, the NAACP has been historically targetted in the US, particularly by the Ku Klux Klan, for its work during the civil rights movement. http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2015/01/08/naacpbombing-highlights-lack-coverage-white-terrorists

A reflection on the U.S. Constitutional issues in 2014
 We started the year of 2014 off smoking.   First Constitutional issue faced in 2014 was that of legalised Pot. Colorado began the fight to make legal cannibus  January 1, 2014.   The first jurisdiction in the world to see the regulated retai Read more ... l sales of recreational marijuana. In the first eight months, Colorado collected $45.2 million in taxes and fees from the marijuana industry. Some call it, "Rocky Mountain High".  Although not an issue when when Janet Yellen was named the Federal Reserves chair she became the first female in U.S. history to hold that position on Jan 6.  Capitol punishment took front and center on Jan 19 when Ohio killer Dennis McGuire took 25 minutes to die. There was a call of inhumane treatment of this animal.  February 9 the U.S. decides to recognize same sex marriage in all Federal matters.   March 26 Sulaiman Abu Ghaith is Convicted of conspiring to kill Americans in NYC. There was much debate if this Terrorble case should be in NY.  April 2 Supreme Court rules to overturn limits of Donations to political campaigns. Volumes of wealth spoken here.  April 30 reports of 19 Vets dying due to VA delays.   May 15 U.S. Gov fines GM for delaying recall on ignition switch issue's. GM efforts rekindle.  May 27 POTUS announces 9800 troops will be staying in Afghanistan for a full year after the December target date he first announced on return of combat troops. Obama lacked in acceptability causing a return fire from many within the nation. Trying to cease the day concerning national emotion on his lack Obama was unable to provide the ability to abort.  May 30 Eric Shinseki as Sec of VA affairs due to scandal. No safe haven for echelon.   May 31 Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released in exchange for 5 Taliban members in Gitmo through Pres. Obama which later became members of ISIS. Augmented swap proving vicarious.  June 10 House Majority leader defeated by T.E.A. Party candidate David Brat. A steadfast move by true-blue patriot voters. June 19 POTUS approves sending 300,"Advisors" to help battle ISIS. A fickle move that was wavering against words and vows because he promised no involvement.  The spasmodic move after recognizing deaths of United States media in ME. He still swore oath to no war with,"No boots on the ground" battle cry. Aug 15 Gov. Rick Perry indicted on felony charges of abuse of power. Perry threatened to veto the budget of an Austin prosecutor if she did not resign after her DUI was caught on tape and somehow Perry was indicted shortly after. Inquisitive. Aug 16 Gov. Jay Nixon declares a state of Emergency and curfew in Ferguson MO following the shooting of Michael Brown. Aug 19  James Foley, missing since 2012 is beheaded by ISIS as it becomes apparent boots need to shuffle.

The news story ascends as top priority. And blame mounts. Sept 26 Kim Jong un disappears from public eye speculation has it a coupe has taken place. This cloaking mystery amounts to a smokescreen masking itself as a veil of nonsense. Oct 1 Julia Pierson resigns as director of Secret Service. The possibilities of backlash over crawling conspiracies go up over fence jumpers. Pierson leaps from public view as conspiracies escalate. Oct 8 Kim Jong un reappears his manifestation proves coupe never took place. Nov 4 Republicans offer a gangland style beating to Democrats to control Senate. The annihilation shares the evidence that voters blitzed to end the calamity Democrats provided our nation. The Judgement Day was no surprise to most. Nov 8 N.Korea releases Kenneth Bae and Mathew Miller Nov 20 POTUS creates Exec order to defeat deportations of certain groups of illegal immigrants. Nov 25 So called protests plunder throughout Ferguson MO. As the city burns and looting takes place seizure of rights become blurred as pickings of rights are placed on a backburner. Dec 9 Senate Committee on Intelligence releases torture report. Dec 17 Cuban Embargo ends and Obama announces his lack of restraint is justified. Obama hints impediments are outdated and barriers are broken. Dec 19 Obama calls for an end to Vandalism as cyber Terrorism takes place jeapordising 1st Amendment rights. In a speech Obama doesn't qualify as dialogue of Terrorism just Vandalism. His discussion shares a language of doublespeak.

Cookies This morning an article posted on ABC News where they quoted these statements from this page: "This movement was born because of all the hate society is spreading towards the police profession," and " It's about sharing love, not hate." They also men Read more ... tioned the name Cookies for Cops. As I read the article, a few paragraphs down, they mentioned the name Becky Grizovic who started Cookies for a Cop which is a separate campaign. I did not know she existed until this morning. The article talked about the campaign launching in December and with the statements taken from this Facebook page, I thought it was our press. It was not. I contacted Becky immediately and we discovered that we both started the same "movement" but just 1 day apart. She started on December 4th, and this page started on December 5th. I contacted ABC news right away to tell them about the mix-up after reaching out to Becky. The article has since been corrected with no mention of Cookies for Cops. I apologize for any confusion and misunderstanding. My excitement for the national press has turned to disappointment but knowing we have served over 120 departments through both campaigns fills my heart. Learning that 2 people started a similar movement within 24 hours of each other is amazing. We are in separate parts of the US (she in Kentucky, I in Colorado). Both of us started a movement because we were fed up with the negative police attention. She is not a police wife and felt compelled to support law enforcement. I started this page because I was angry that my husband was yet again being called out to SWAT and I would have to miss out on an opportunity to advance a ministry I already serve. I was frustrated that students were walking out of school that day in Aurora due to the Ferguson protests and felt these kids truly didn't understand all their police do and took the Aurora Theater Shooting and officer response for granted. I had no idea that someone else had started a movement and to be accused of stealing someone's idea and press is disheartening. I am posting this here. My name is Elizabeth Petrucelli. I started Cookies for Cops on December 5th, 2014 out of frustration. I needed to see there was still good in this world. You all have restored that faith in humanity for me and so many others. So many of you have supported your local law enforcement during these dark hours and it is so appreciated. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do. I have referenced the article below. #CookiesforCops http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/us-nyc-deaths-surge-support-police-27806721

Utah The Grand Canyon wolf has received a new name: Echo. Here's the news release: For Immediate Release, December 11, 2014 Contact: Emily Renn, (928) 202-1325, Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project Ellen Winchester, (928) 638-2389, owner, Kaibab Lodge An Read more ... gela Tanner, (208) 230-1090, mother of contest winner Zachary Tanner Kim Crumbo, (928) 606-5850, Grand Canyon Wildlands Council Maggie Howell, (914) 763-2373, Wolf Conservation Center Kirk Robinson, (801) 468-1535, Western Wildlife Conservancy Alison Huyett, (410) 693-1591, Pacific Wolf Coalition Kurt Holtzen, National Wolfwatcher Coalition Northern Rockies Representative Grand Canyon Wolf Named “Echo” in World-wide Contest GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz.— The endangered female gray wolf recently confirmed north of Grand Canyon National Park now has a name-Echo. Her name was chosen from over 500 entries in a contest sponsored by conservation groups across the western U.S. and by facilities who house and breed wolves for endangered species recovery. Ten-year old contest winner Zachary Tanner from Milwaukie, Oregon, said he chose the name Echo "because she came back to the Grand Canyon like an Echo does." DNA tests from scat show that Echo traveled hundreds of miles from the Northern Rockies to the Grand Canyon region, an area that scientists identified as one of the last best places in the Southwest for wolves. A government extermination campaign in the early twentieth century wiped out the region’s native wolves by the early 1940’s. Echo is the first wolf confirmed in the area since. She is currently fully protected under the Endangered Species Act, but could be left completely vulnerable to shooting and trapping under an Obama administration plan to strip legal protections for gray wolves nation-wide, ignoring the majority of 1.6 million public comments calling for continued protections. In his winning contest entry, Zachary said he cares about wolves because "they are a part of the food chain, and they are so beautiful and we need them. All of them. All of every creature. We need them. " Since the news of her presence on the north rim became public in October, Echo has been celebrated all over the world, including close to home. Contest entries were received from throughout the U.S. and Canada, and from South America, Europe, Africa, and Australia. Local business woman Ellen Winchester, whose family has owned and lived at the Kaibab Lodge five miles north of the Grand Canyon North Rim for the past ten years, said she and her family feel blessed to have heard and seen this wolf. “This is our home and business and we who live in the forest have a healthy respect for the animals. The Kaibab National Forest, The Grand Canyon North Rim and the animals that live there are a legacy for our children and our children's children. I was thrilled to hear wolf song. I welcome Echo to the Grand Canyon, which is my back yard. There is plenty of room for all to live together safely.” said Winchester. Conservation organizations and wolf species survival plan members across the U.S. collaborated on the naming contest (see list at end). “This is an exciting, historic development that affirms both the peer-reviewed science that identifies this area as excellent habitat for wolves and the need to maintain Endangered Species Act protections for wolves.” said Emily Renn, executive director for Flagstaff-based Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project. Kim Crumbo, conservation director for Grand Canyon Wildlands Council, said. “That a determined wolf could make it to the Grand Canyon region from the northern Rockies is greatly hopeful and cause for celebration, and every effort must be taken to protect Echo and to continue the work to protect the wildlife corridors she used to get here.” Many contestants said Echo’s story gave them hope as well. Students from Flagstaff and Phoenix, Arizona; Evergreen, Colorado; and Coventry, Rhode Island submitted the second place entry, “Esperanza,” Spanish for hope. The Flagstaff students said they chose Esperanza because “we believe the wolf will give hope to the ecosystem.” Several students also submitted the name “Hope.” She came, she saw, she made history, and now she has a name!” said Maggie Howell with the Wolf Conservation Center in NY, a facility that houses and breeds endangered wolves for species recovery. “Echo’s wild milestone is a demonstration of the great potential for wolf recovery in areas where this keystone species has yet to take hold.” It is likely that Echo’s travels led her through Utah to get to Grand Canyon. “In spite of political and physical obstacles, Echo traveled hundreds of miles to demonstrate that Utah and northern Arizona are home to wolves! We should welcome this and future wolves home, and let them live in peace,” said Kirk Robinson, Executive Director for Western Wildlife Conservancy in Utah. Pacific Wolf Coalition coordinator Alison Huyett said "Just like Oregon's Journey (Wolf OR-7), who took an unprecedented trek down to California and was the first wolf to enter the state in nearly 90 years, Echo's story shows that wolf recovery has just begun in many places throughout the West. Both of these treks highlight the ample amount of suitable habitat for wolves and the need for connected Western landscapes for recovery. Neither Journey nor Echo would have been able to make these landmark journeys without federal protections granting them safe passage." National WolfWatcher Coalition’s Northern Rockies regional representative Kurt Holtzen said “As well documented by Journey’s travels, wolves disperse widely and over long distances, often through natural and political boundaries. The arrival in Arizona of a northern Rockies wolf, appropriately named Echo, illustrates specifically why wolf recovery is not complete, and why we should maintain federal protection.” Background The Obama Administration’s planned national wolf delisting would remove federal Endangered Species Act protections across most of the continental United States, and would give individual states, many of which are extremely hostile to wolves, the authority to manage wolves. Without federal legal protections, wolves would not be able to safely move across state lines to suitable habitat, as this one has. Currently, wolves have returned to less than ten percent of their historic range in the lower forty-eight states. Wolves from the north and south historically met, interbred and thrived in the Southern Rockies and today’s science tells us there continues to be an abundance of suitable wolf habitat in southern Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, including the Grand Canyon area.

Maddie Found a paper I wrote last year, take a look: Gun-free safe zones: Vulnerable environments for killing sprees How many shootings at schools or malls will it take before we understand that people who intend to kill are not deterred by gun laws? On Read more ... December 14th, 2012 a 20 year old man named Adam Lanza entered the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and audaciously killed 27 people, including himself. An event like this sends chills down my back just simply reading about it. Reading about this event also sparks frustration, knowing that the people involved in these events were completely disarmed and helpless. When school psychologist Mary Sherlach and vice Principal Natalie Hammond initially heard the first gun shots fired, they went out into the hallway to investigate. However, without anything to defend themselves or protect the students, everybody in the building began hiding in closets, running for cover, locking themselves in the bathrooms, etc. No person at the school could exercise an act of heroism or defense of the students because they were rendered completely defenseless by people who simply fear the word “gun”. I’m sure you’ve heard of the mass shooting incidents at the Sandy Hook Elementary school as I mentioned above, Virginia Tech, Columbine High school, Washington Navy Yard, Colorado Movie Theater, and now the second shooting at the Fort Hood Military base in Texas. What’s one thing that all of these places have in common? They are “gun-free safe zones”. For years now there has been the controversial debate about allowing citizens to carry firearms in public places. There are a wide variety of public places that ban carrying concealed weapons, therefore I’m going to make this easier to elaborate on and focus solely on one place: schools. Prohibiting all staff and faculty members in schools and on college campuses from carrying a weapon leaves everybody present unarmed and helpless in the case of a horrific event. Making it illegal for school administrators and staff to carry concealed weapons inside of schools and on school grounds makes not only them, but every student defenseless. Many people believe that controlling gun violence with the use of more guns is ineffective, however crime statistics say differently. Yet, when addressing this issue regarding crime rate in schools or on college campuses, there are little to no statistics available to prove that allowing teachers to have concealed weapons reduces crime rate, being that the majority of schools have been “gun-free zones” since at least 1990. There are certainly no statistics showing that the presence of guns in the hands of teachers would make it a more dangerous place either. In that year, the gun-free school zones act of 1990 was passed. “The Gun-Free School Zones Act (GFSZA) prohibits any person from knowingly possessing a firearm that has moved in or otherwise affects interstate or foreign commerce at a place the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone.” With the quite frequent mass shooting incidents, one may reconsider the assumed safety of schools. Although we would like to believe that we are free from danger at school, that is, however, not always the case. Educators can only do so much in order to teach students right from wrong. Educators can do their best to eliminate bullying and unfair treatment to students. However, there are and always will be mentally disturbed people in this world. Culturally, the fact that we do have to worry about things like this happening in schools is a surprising and ever-present concept. There are mentally ill people of all ages in society. Painfully true, no one is ever completely safe from the danger these mentally ill people may present. What we must realize is that disarming the “good guys” doesn’t stop the “bad guys” from committing such acts. A common misconception by some gun control advocates is that gun rights supporters want to force teachers or staff members to carry a concealed weapon, which isn’t true. According to one online survey, “72.4 percent of teachers would not likely bring a firearm to school, if allowed. Administered by the School Improvement Network in January, the questionnaire surveyed 10,661 educators from all 50 states.” I certainly don’t think that every teacher should carry a weapon on them, considering a lot of people are not comfortable or competent to do so. There are, however, quite a few competent teachers and administrators that could and/or would carry a firearm to protect the students and themselves. As stated above, 72.4% of educators opposed the idea of bringing firearms to school, meaning that 28.6% of educators said that they would carry a firearm to school if given the chance. There’s always the potential that a teacher could misuse the weapon. However, if any teacher literally thought about hurting a student or colleague, then clearly they have some mental issues. If that is the case, then the sticker on the building stating “Gun-free zone” is not going to stop them from committing such acts. If one is insane enough to actually consider shooting someone else in the school, then that event is certainly possible in spite of measures taken by gun control advocates. After all, it is illegal to shoot someone anywhere, in anyplace. Despite of the laws prohibiting these acts, they still occur every day. There hasn’t been enough opportunities to prove that less gun control reduces crime in schools. You can’t put a number on a negative event. A statistic that is never counted and/or ever reported on is how many times the presence of a gun, held by a good guy, prevents a crime or tragedy from occurring. You cannot quantify a negative. What I mean by this is that if the presence of guns in the hands of the law abiding citizens prevents a crime from happening, how are those numbers compiled? After all, when a tragic event is occurring in a school, who do we call? We call law enforcement to respond as quickly as they can and “bring their weapons with them”…. So how does it make sense that we forbid competent and willing teachers or administrators from carrying weapons when the result of this opposition is that we allow more time for a perpetrator to inflict chaos? This simply doesn’t make sense. There have been countless numbers of times that several people at a time were killed in these so called “gun-free safe zones.” Although I’m straying a bit from my original focus of gun violence in schools, it is important to point out that out of the dozens of mass shooting incidents that have taken place, have been at not only schools, but other gun-free areas such as malls and military bases. Why is it that some percentage of the population believes that a criminal and/or a mentally disturbed person gives a damn what laws are in place? How many gun related crimes do we really think were prevented because of the presence of a little sticker stating “gun-free zone” on the front of a building? Guns shouldn’t be banned for killing people just like spoons shouldn’t be illegal for making people fat. A gun, on safety and lying on a table, does not just go off and shoot someone nearby. Obviously, someone picks up that gun and shoots another person. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. A perfect example of this actually took place today in Murrysville, Pennsylvania at Franklin Regional High school. A 16-year-old student named Alex Hribal went on a stabbing spree with two large kitchen knives, injuring 20 people. Several of them are now in critical care. This goes to show that it doesn’t take a gun to commit a mass assault. Oddly enough, this tragic event only made the news for a few minutes, and is now at the bottom of each news channel screen in small letters. In my opinion, in part, this is being covered differently than other mass assaults at schools because a gun was not involved. After this new event, does that mean we should ban knives? We all heard about the recent shooting at the Fort Hood Military base in Texas that happened on April 4th, 2014. The shooter, 34 year old soldier Ivan Lopez shot and killed four people, including himself, and injured an additional sixteen people. Sadly, this isn’t the first shooting to occur at the Fort Hood Military base. On November 5th, 2009 a soldier by the name of Major Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 people and wounded an additional 30 people. Upon researching my topic I found the most powerful letter written by Patrick Cook, first lieutenant of the 49th Transportation Battalion at the Fort Hood military base. He addressed this letter to congress practically begging government officials to make changes to gun control laws. The soldier talks about his experience during this horrific event. “This past Wednesday I found myself trapped in an enclosed room with fourteen of my fellow soldiers, one of whom was barricading the door against a madman with a .45 pistol when he was fatally shot. Through what I can only describe as a miracle, he somehow found enough strength to continue pushing against that door until the shooter gave up and went elsewhere, at which time he collapsed. Nearly a week later, I can still taste his blood in my mouth from when I and my comrades breathed into his lungs for 20 long minutes while we waited for a response from the authorities.” I repeat, 20 long minutes for the authorities to arrive. He continues on to talk about the fear and helplessness he felt that day, not having any weapon to defend himself or his fellow soldiers. “When the first shots rang out, my hand reached to my belt for something that wasn’t there. Something that could have put a stop to the bloodshed could have made it merely an “ugly incident” instead of the horrific massacre that I will surely remember as the darkest twenty minutes of my life. Stripped of my God-given Right to arm myself, the only defensive posture I had left was to lie prostrate on the ground, and wait to die. As the shooter kicked at the door, I remember telling myself, “oh well, this is it.” It is beneath human dignity to experience the utter helplessness I felt that day. I cannot abide the thought that anyone should ever feel that again.” Cook repeatedly states in the letter how he knew that this was going to happen, and how it will happen again. “I knew this was going to happen. I had been saying for five years that Fort Hood was a tinderbox of another massacre waiting to happen. It had to happen, because our betters failed to learn the obvious lesson of five years ago. Worse yet, I know it will happen again. More will die, more will be wounded, and more families will be torn apart, needlessly. It happened again, and will happen again, because Fort Hood is a gun free zone.” Cook concludes his letter to Congress by restating his original thoughts that “suppressing the bearing of arms doesn’t prevent horrific crimes, it invites them”. He pleads for congress to make changes to gun control laws to prevent future massacres from happening. “The only people who are “gun free” are the innocent men and women who could put an end to such tragic massacres.” Most gun control measures throughout the United States, in effect and in my opinion, by design, target law abiding gun owners, not the criminals.

The Zacarias Moussaoui, serving a life sentence for his role as the "20th 9/11 Hijacker" has made claims in federal court that a member of the the Saudi Arabian royal family financed the 9/11 attacks by paying for flying lessons for himself and the other Read more ... 19 terrorists of 9/11. Naturally, the Saudis have denied this. Moussaoui, 46, filed court documents claiming Saudis funded 9/11 by paying for him and 19 hijackers to learn to fly during government interviews held at the maximum security Colorado prison where he is serving a life sentence without parole. Moussaoui says an unnamed Saudi Prince paid for flying lessons for him and the 19 terrorists who hijacked planes in the September 11 attacks in the run-up to the atrocities. The claims were made in documents filed to a federal court in Oklahoma, in which Moussaoui says a prince "was assisting me in my Islamic terrorist activities... and was doing so knowingly for Osama bin Laden". He also said that bin Laden provided assistance from Saudi leaders in planning the attacks, and that he was also involved in a plot to shoot down Air Force One with President Bill Clinton on board. The Saudi government has flatly denied any involvement in 9/11. Moussaoui's credibility is also somewhat suspect, however, lawyers for the Federal government have taken him seriously enough to interview him over the claims, saying he had 'relevant' material to contribute. Officials in Oklahoma have said Moussaoui's requests to be allowed to speak in open court and to be assigned government lawyers will probably be denied, as his claims have nothing to do with any existing cases. The statement is clouded by his record of changing his account of his involvement in the Sept. 11 plot and his erratic behavior in court during his three-year trial. In court papers filed in Manhattan in September, lawyers for Saudi Arabia said flatly: 'The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had no role in the attacks of September 11, 2001.' They also noted that the United States 'has said often and vigorously that Saudi Arabia is an important ally in the fight against terrorism.' Moussaoui, who is 46 and refers to himself in writing as 'Slave of Allah,' was first arrested on immigration charges in August 2001 after employees of a Minnesota flight school became alarmed that he wanted to learn to fly a Boeing 747 - even though he had no pilot's license. His recent attempts to cooperate in the civil cases stand in contrast to other al-Qaida defendants who have remained silent after years of confinement without volunteering information except for claims they were tortured. Moussaoui was already in custody on September 11, 2001, and pleaded guilty in April 2005 to conspiring with the hijackers to kill Americans. During his three-year legal fight, Moussaoui repeatedly insulted the judge and tried to fire his lawyers. At one point he was facing the death penalty, which jurors decided against. During the hearing he spontaneously declared that he had planned to pilot a plane into the White House on September 11. A psychologist called by his lawyers testified that Moussaoui had paranoid schizophrenia. Moussaoui mocked the testimony, shouting as he left courtroom, 'Crazy or not crazy? That is the question.' Jerry S. Goldman, a lawyer who interviewed Moussaoui, said: 'I will say that we believe it was relevant and material to our case.' Moussaoui also wrote to the clerk in federal court in Brooklyn in September, saying he had seen a report on Fox News about another suit accusing the Jordan-based Arab Bank of helping finance suicide bombings in Israel. He said he was willing to testify, but the plaintiffs never took it seriously. The communication wasn't relevant to the Arab Bank case and 'don't make clear what his motives are,' said one lawyer, Gary Osen. 'I don't know his state of mind at all.'
