CIA run anonymous web service closes
Washtech | Submitted by: Soylent
Safeweb, which provided web surfing anonymization and which was largely backed by the CIA, has turned off the service. It was intended for use by surfers in despotic countries to prevent web censorship, but who knows exactly what intelligence data would be quietly gathered by the CIA during its operation.

Turkey was asking for it
Youngstown Vindicator | Submitted by: Soylent
"That turkey has been in the neighborhood for months," Warren said. "I saw the turkey around those homes before this happened. The turkey never bothered anyone, but now, three days before Thanksgiving, we have an officer chasing it with a shotgun." [I think the answer is quite obvious: Dinner.]

Nintendo game sparks police raid
The Vancouver Province | Submitted by: Soylent
A busybody neighbor spying through a window saw what she thought was a firearm, but a police SWAT team later determined to be a Nintendo gaming system. The complaint was over a "male with a gun passed out in a basement surrounded by drug paraphernalia." The drug paraphernalia, we can only assume, was Pixiesticks and Zotz, or their Canadian equivalents.

Air Canada security sucks
Globe and Mail | Submitted by: Soylent
Canadian reporter tests airline security, even boarding airliners with box cutters, not merely once but four times: all of them successfully penetrating security. What is Air Canada's reaction? They demand that the reporter state in writing that she will not try to do it again. Oh, that will really fucking help.

F16 probably shot down Pennsylvania flight
Nashua Telegraph | Submitted by: Soylent
One of the "big lies" about the current crisis is the likelihood that flight 93 was shot out of the sky over Pennsylvania. In fact, it seems more probable that indeed it was shot down, from the distribution of the wreckage to the circumstances witnessed by certain air traffic controllers. "Controllers have also learned that an F-16 fighter closely pursued hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 until it crashed in southwestern Pennsylvania, the employee said." This article dated two days after the attacks, pointed out by the Unknown News folks.

Sydney Morning Herald | Submitted by: Ross
Music industry mogul Jonathan King, formerly involved with such bands as Genesis and the Bay City Rollers, is in jail for seven years because of a hobby of his. "Prosecutor David Jeremy said King invited the boys to his home, where he showed them sexy pictures and films and then assaulted them. Afterward, he gave them gifts, including records and T-shirts and sometimes took them home in his brown Rolls-Royce."

A place we call the Zoo
London Times | Submitted by: Soylent
Documenting the often bizarre treatment of Western prisoners by the Taliban, though while not torturous, at least somewhat confusing: "The youngest of the German prisoners, Kati Jellinek, 29, was blonde and of particular interest to the Taleban. When she was arrested, five men with Kalashnikovs demanded that she pack, unpack and repack her underwear." [In full compliance with Islamic Law, no doubt.]

The Eyesore Awards
Scotsman | Submitted by: Soylent
Mediocrity will be rewarded wherever it is found. "Six contenders have been nominated for the most dismal place in Scotland. Dumbarton and Cumbernauld town centres, the Exchange and Haymarket Station in Edinburgh, together with Aviemore and Gretna Green, are in the running for the Plook on the Plinth Award."
