Humanitarian Aid Now an Act of Terror!

RT America - The U.S. Supreme Court upheld a law that prevents Americans and American human rights groups from supporting known terrorists groups.

In a 6-3 ruling on Monday, the High Court reversed a U.S. appeals court ruling that stated that parts of the law were "unconstitutionally vague."

"The law bars knowingly providing any service, training, expert advice or assistance to any foreign organization designated by the U.S. State Department as terrorist," reported Reuters. "The law, which carries a penalty of up to 15 years in prison, does not require any proof the defendant intended to further any act of terrorism or violence by the foreign group." VIDEO BELOW:

Nigeria gold hunt kills children.

June 17, 2010 — More than 160 children have died of lead poisoning in Nigeria in recent weeks, and more deaths are expected to follow.

The number has been rising since March, when rural residents started digging illegally for gold in areas with high concentrations of lead.

The victims were from several remote villages in the northern state of Zamfara.

Marcel Lagenbach, head of the Medecins Sans Frontieres emergency response team in Zamfara, told Al Jazeera there are six villages in the state that have been affected.

"Possibly there are some more villages that are contaminated, a lot of work remains to be done in terms of investigation, it is still a state of emergency," he said.

Prime Minister David Cameron said he was "deeply sorry". He said that the findings of the Saville Report were "shocking".

BP Decisions Set Stage for Disaster

Memorial for the Oil Rig Victims

API Well No. 60-817-44169 threw up many challenges to its principal owner, BP PLC, swallowing expensive drilling fluid and burping out dangerous gas. Those woes put the Gulf of Mexico project over budget and behind schedule by April 20, the day the well erupted, destroying the Deepwater Horizon rig and killing 11 men.
Government investigators have yet to announce conclusions about what went wrong that day. The final step in the causation chain, industry engineers have said in interviews, was most likely the failure of a crucial seal at the top of the well or a cement plug at the bottom.
