Her Manhattan federal court suit asks a judge "to correct a miscarriage of justice from the McCarthy era, of which Ms. Moskowitz is perhaps the last living victim."

Deportation of border childrenPresident Barack Obama's pledge to fast-track the deportation of migrant children from Central America is out of step with the opinion of a majority of Americans, who say the children should be allowed to stay in the United States, at least for a while.

The results of a Reuters/Ipsos poll highlight the complexity of the child migrant issue for Obama, who has sought to emphasize his compassion while also insisting that his administration plans to send home most of the children, many of whom have fled violence in their homelands.

Password breachOK, now it's really time to change your password.

With news that as many as 1.2 billion user names and password combinations had been stolen, security experts are urging consumers to be more vigilant online.

A Russian cybergang injected malicious code into at least 420,000 websites to gather the data.

Cash, Weapons and Surveillance: the U.S. is a Key Party to Every Israeli Attack

US behind every attack in GazaThe U.S. government has long lavished overwhelming aid on Israel, providing cash, weapons and surveillance technology that play a crucial role in Israel’s attacks on its neighbors. But top secret documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden shed substantial new light on how the U.S. and its partners directly enable Israel’s military assaults – such as the one on Gaza.

Over the last decade, the NSA has significantly increased the surveillance assistance it provides to its Israeli counterpart, the Israeli SIGINT National Unit (ISNU; also known as Unit 8200), including data used to monitor and target Palestinians. In many cases, the NSA and ISNU work cooperatively with the British and Canadian spy agencies, the GCHQ and CSEC.

U.S. Inquiry Finds a ‘Culture of Violence’ Against Teenage Inmates at Rikers

Riker's island abuse of teensIn an extraordinary rebuke of the New York City Department of Correction, the federal government said on Monday the department had systematically violated the civil rights of male teenagers at Rikers Island by failing to protect them from the rampant use of unnecessary and excessive force by correction officers.

Obama to 'unlock' cellphone rights: How free will you be?

lockinh cellphoneA bill passed by Congress and waiting to be signed by President Obama represents a big win for consumers, who have long sought ability to "unlock" cellphones – allowing them to be used on any carrier's plan. But it does not mark the end of the battle and could be only a temporary victory.

The issue may seem obvious on its face: If consumers buy phones, why should a telecom giant be able to tell them how to use it? But the Library of Congress backed the patent office in 2012, saying that most unlocking amounted to illegal tampering according to US copyright law.
