    THE killers of coalition soldiers in Afghanistan may be granted amnesty, given benefits and assimilated back into their communities as part of an Afghan reintegration plan funded by Western donors. “There will be judgments made at all stages but if you've been fighting as part of the insurgency then you can step into the program,” said Major-General Phillip Jones, the British officer directing civilian and military experts supporting the Afghan Peace and Reintegration Plan (APRP).

    Herein granted The point of this posting is to solicit comments, opinions, and hopefully facts why the words “herein granted” where included in Article 1.

Let’s begin by assuming that the words of Article 1. Section 1. are as follows :All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

What the members decided caused more than a few people to scratch their heads, considering that: • California legislators were already the highest-paid state lawmakers in the land, with an annual salary of $99,000 on top of benefits that include daily expenses, auto rentals, car repairs, gasoline and staff expenses. • In a Field Poll last month, their job rating hit a low for the year, with only 24% of voters approving and only...

    former captain of the Black Panther Party, who was convicted of killing a park ranger near San Francisco 31 years ago, has been granted parole, though law enforcement officials made a last-ditch attempt Wednesday to block his release. Veronza Leon Curtis Bowers Jr., 59, is expected to walk free from a federal prison in Coleman, Fla., on June 21, according to officials at the U.S. Parole Commission. "If he gets into trouble, he could be kept in," said Tom Hutchison, a spokesman for the Maryland-based Parole Commission. But most inmates close to their release date, he said, "just bide their...
