The Feynman Files.
For the first time, FBI records for Dr Richard Feynman have been released to the public
. They document the Bureau's apparent obsession in the 1950's with outing him as a communist sympathizer, and include notations from several background checks as well as interviews with his colleagues, friends and acquaintances.
The US Department of Justice has announced arrests
in four states

In February President Bush issued an Executive Order
changing the role & reporting structure of the PFIAB
, the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. At the time the order was criticized
as a move to consolidate power within an organization that was already full of Bush cronies
. But it now looks like all the pundits were wrong. The real reason? There was a spy in the PFIAB
"Once Upon A Time
... there were two very special airplanes
that lived.... far.... far.... away on a tiny island in the Bering Sea
. One was named Rivet Ball
and the other was named Rivet Amber
. Very few people knew anything about these two planes or the men
that flew them. Even family members knew very little. That's because their mission was... TOP SECRET." (some photos and language within are NSFW
