          A FEW GOOD WORDS The accuracy of lie detector tests has never been completely decided upon. Although it is inadmissible as evidence in court, even the proponents of lie detector testing agree that it is not always accurate. Among the first lie detectors, considered by some to be the most accurate, was the donkey's tail! That's right, in ancient India, a suspect would be escorted to a darkened room. Only three would be present: the accused, the interrogator, and a donkey. The person being questioned was told that the donkey would bray if his responses were...

  • American troops celebrate Thanksgiving thousands of miles away from home

    SOUTH KOREA — Thousands of miles away from home, U.S. troops in South Korea marked the annual holiday of Thanksgiving on Thursday. A traditional meal including turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing was served to soldiers at Camp Humphreys, which is just 60 miles from the border with North Korea. The U.S. soldiers said the Thanksgiving meal reminded them of home. “This Thanksgiving meal today prepared for us is absolutely amazing. They’ve really outdone themselves. I do have family back out AT home. I have a wife and two beautiful daughters. I miss them very much but I’m here now and...

    FOX News ^ | November 23, 2017 | By Jeremy Hunt
    In the Army, where I have the privilege of serving, there’s an unspoken rule that no service member celebrates Thanksgiving alone. If word gets out that a soldier doesn’t have a place to go for the holiday, other soldiers will invite him or her to share a meal and celebrate. Our creed to never leave a fallen comrade isn’t just meant for times of war; it’s a way of life. All soldiers are reminded that they are members of a tight-knit community – a bond that’s becoming increasingly rare in today’s society. While it’s nearly impossible to duplicate the closeness...
  • Argentina submarine search: Sound detected is 'consistent with explosion'

    A sound detected in the hunt for a missing submarine is "consistent with a non-nuclear explosion", Argentina has said. The ARA San Juan has been missing in the South Atlantic since the middle of November and dozens of planes and boats have been involved in search. Some 44 people are on board and the operation has entered a "critical phase" because the crew's oxygen supply could be running low. Navy spokesman Enrique Balbi said relatives of the crew members have been told about the development and the search will continue until the fate of the crew is known. He described...

  • Second federal judge blocks Trump's transgender military ban

    A federal judge in Maryland issued a second order on Tuesday blocking President Trump from implementing his ban on transgender military service. The preliminary injunction was granted to a group of active-duty transgender troops who sued Trump and top military officials in August. For now, it bars the Pentagon and Coast Guard from implementing or enforcing Trump’s August guidance aimed at rolling back the Obama administration’s policy of allowing open service and medical care for transgender troops.

    Three military members working for the White House have been reassigned after having alleged inappropriate contact with foreign women during President Donald Trump’s recent trip to Asia, a senior U.S. defense official has confirmed to Fox News. The service members, who worked as part of the White House Communications Agency (WHCA), are being investigated for allegedly breaking curfew in Vietnam, The Washington Post reported Tuesday... In August, four Army soldiers working with the WHCA were reassigned after bringing women back to their hotel room on a trip to Panama with Vice President Mike Pence.

  • NK Submarine Missile Program Moves Ahead, Missile Ejection Testing (Satellite Imagery)

    38 North (SAIS) ^ | Nov. 16th, 2017 | Joseph S. Bermudez
    Commercial satellite imagery of the Sinpo South Shipyard from November 5 indicates that North Korea is on an aggressive schedule to build and deploy its first operational ballistic missile submarine. The continued movement of parts and components into and out of the parts yards adjacent to the construction halls indicates an ongoing shipbuilding program. The presence of what appear to be sections of a submarine’s pressure hull in the yards suggests construction of a new submarine, possibly the SINPO-C ballistic missile submarine (SSB)[1]—the follow-on to the current SINPO-class experimental ballistic missile submarine (SSBA).[2] A probable launch canister support, or launch...

    A federal judge in Maryland became the second to block the Trump administration’s proposal to oust transgender service members from the military — but went a step further than the prior ruling and halted a directive for the Pentagon to stop paying for gender-reassignment treatments. The preliminary injunction issued Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis comes after the prior ruling out of D.C. found that the policy banning transgender troops creates an “inherent inequality” that likely violates the Constitution. Judge Garbis wrote in his 53-page order that transgender military members who filed suit over the proposal had established...

    It’s not exactly “Man Bites Dog,” but “Congress Gets Defense Spending Right” is almost as surprising a headline. For too long now, we’ve been cutting corners when it comes to the military. Years of underfunding have given us a weakened force that, despite the hard work of our brave troops, is ill-equipped to handle the missions we keep throwing at it. Think the recent spate of ship collisions is a coincidence? Hardly. They’re a red flag -- a warning sign we ignore at our peril. That’s what happens when you shortchange our armed forces and fail to ensure that they...
