WikiLeaks, too, claims to have NSA code

Julian AssangeThe auction for an advanced, NSA-linked cyberweapon just became cheaper.

Simone Biles Continues Her World Domination, Wins Third Gold Medal

Simone wins third gold medal

Simone Biles, fresh off gold medals in the team and all-around finals, continued her domination of the field today, as she and her teammates added three more medals to Team USA’s collection.

Biles, who won all-around gold on Thursday by a staggering margin of over 2 points, today won her signature event, the vault. With her win, she becomes only the third U.S. woman gymnast to win three gold medals; her teammates Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman are the other two. Biles is also the first American woman to ever win gold on vault.

On bars, reigning world champion Madison Kocian won the silver, and for the men’s pommel horse event, Alex Naddour won the bronze.



Simone Biles, Michael Phelps, and Simone Manuel make history at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Michael PhelpsOlympic history has been made ten times over at the 2016 Rio Games.

Michael Phelps has proven himself to be the greatest swimmer of all time — and perhaps the greatest athlete of all time. He’s broken so many records, including his own, in Rio that gold medal performances are expected.

We no longer have to wait with baited breath to see if Phelps will break the world record or come in first in his races, we assume he will.


Queen Simone Biles Claims Her Olympic Crown At Last

And lastly, to floor, where Biles and Raisman are particularly strong. Biles needed better than a 12.4 to win, and Raisman better than 14.0 to grab silver. The deal was all but sealed. Raisman performed with the same skill, and with greater confidence, than she displayed when she won gold on the event in London in 2012, and scored a 15.433. She burst into tears upon finishing her routine, knowing that she had secured at least a silver medal.

And then, Biles. She smiled through her routine, surely knowing that the gold medal was already in her hands. When she finished her final tumbling pass — full twisting double back somersault — the stadium all but exploded. Raisman, Biles and their coaches clung on to each other, smiling, as they waited for Biles’ score.


Report offers details about Guantanamo detainees on way out

Gitmo detainees reportFollowing a lengthy tug-of-war with Capitol Hill, the Pentagon has given a senator the first-ever, unclassified report detailing the suspected militant backgrounds of more than 100 detainees at or recently released from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay — a report that will likely spur more debate over shutting it down.

The report , given to Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., who shared it with The Associated Press, tells the story of detainees like Karim Bostan, who once ran a flower shop and later was accused of running an al-Qaida affiliated explosives cell believed to have targeted U.S.-led coalition forces in eastern Afghanistan. He's been at Guantanamo for more than 13 years, but has been cleared for transfer to a country willing to accept him.


NYT columnist: Trump's children 'should be ashamed of him'

Thomas Friedman destroys TrumpNew York Times columnist Thomas Friedman says Donald Trump's children "should be ashamed of him" after the Republican presidential nominee suggested “Second Amendment people” could stop Democratic Hillary Clinton from nominating liberal judges as president.

“People are playing with fire here, and there is no bigger flamethrower than Donald Trump,” Friedman wrote in an op-ed published Wednesday. “Forget politics; he is a disgusting human being. His children should be ashamed of him.


Visiting Auschwitz, Pope Francis Asks God To Forgive ‘So Much Cruelty’

Pope visits AuschwitzSeated on a bench near the gate to the Auschwitz death camp site in Poland, Pope Francis prayed in silence on Friday in tribute to the 1.5 million people, most of them Jews, killed there by Nazi occupiers during World War Two.

The third pope to visit Auschwitz and the first not to have lived through the war in Europe, he entered the camp by foot, passing through iron gates under the infamous sign reading “Arbeit Macht Frei,” German for “Work Sets You Free.”
