An official with North Koreas General Administration of Civil Aviation gave the assurance when high-ranking ICAO representatives visited the country in May, ICAO officials said.

    Former CIA director John Brennan said Sunday that he was willing to pursue legal action against President Donald Trump after he revoked Brennan's security clearance earlier this week. "If my clearances and my reputation, as I'm being pulled through the mud now, if that's the price we're going to pay to prevent Donald Trump from doing this against other people, to me it's a small price to pay," Brennan said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "So I am going to do whatever I can personally to try to prevent these abuses in the future, and if it means going to...

    National security adviser John Bolton says in addition to Russia, there's "sufficient national security concern" that China, Iran, and North Korea are meddling in the 2018 U.S. elections. "Those are the four countries that we're most concerned about," he said in an interview with ABC's Martha Raddatz. Full interview followed by transcript: JOHN BOLTON, NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR: Well, this is a decision for the president. Its something that I think was originally suggested by Senator Rand Paul, perhaps others. I was aware of it, along with I think most of the presidents other senior national security advisors a few weeks...

    "Cooder returned for a mournful slide workout during Woody Guthries Vigilante Man. The solo excursion included spine-tingling harmonics that surprised even the player himself. Yeah, Cooder exclaimed in delight as his fingers found their mark. Thats hard to do, he said. Its nice when you get it, and a mess when you dont. Cooder augmented Guthries lyrics with a verse for Trayvon Martin in remembrance of the youth and others cut down due to misplaced fear and abuse of power."

    (Washington Post) - The right-wing Polish government is continuously breaking new ground in its attacks on democracy and the rule of law. But now it has set a truly astonishing precedent. Warsaw has just used its European Union powers to deport a government critic and banned her from entering any country within the European free movement zone. The implications are ominous and not only for Poland. Lyudmyla Kozlovska, a young human rights defender, is a fervent promoter of democratic Poland. ...This week, the Polish government deported Kozlovska. The authorities have not provided any explanation, but the likely reason is...

    The other day I posted HERE about the truly weird vestments designed for the upcomingWorld Meeting of Families in Dublin. At first, I objected to the impression given by the pastel colors chosen.It seems to me that, in Ireland and in this time of renewed clerical crisis, this is NOT the best choice. In fact, it is completely tone deaf.Or is it?Then the comments started coming in about the symbols on the vestments. Maybe, so, maybe not, I thought.But wait. Theres more.I got an email from a reader who said that the swirly symbol is quite like the...

Rowley gave the apology during a PNM political meeting held at the Malabar Community Centre last night.
