FBI provides NYC bomber with explosives

Published on Oct 17, 2012 by RTAmerica

The FBI says they have arrested a man on terrorism charges for trying to blow up the New York Federal Reserve bank in Lower Manhattan’s financial district. It was a joint operation with NYPD and they say the suspect was flagged after he made suspicious posts on the Internet. It turns out, however, that the FBI provided the Bangladeshi national who came to US earlier this year with the fake explosives he attempted to detonate. So why is it called a terrorist attack then? RT’s Kristine Frazao explains.

Six Global Issues The Foreign Policy Debates Won’t Touch
By Foreign Policy In Focus. Edited by Peter Certo, October 16, 2012
obama-romney-foreign-policy-debateThere is no other policy arena in which the president of the United States has greater latitude than foreign affairs. With U.S. foreign policy less constrained by Congress and relatively free from the media scrutiny that attends the president’s more domestic endeavors, foreign affairs largely remains the domain of the commander in chief. Indeed, broadcast regularly into living rooms all across the globe, the U.S. president is often the singular face of the United States of America in the world—especially in lands where few Americans tread.
Yet global issues routinely get short thrift in presidential debates, especially in yet another election year characterized by economic malaise and divisive social issues. And with media coverage focused primarily on the performance of the candidates and the debates’ impact on the national horserace, crucial questions about how the United States behaves on the world stage routinely fall between the cracks. This neglect is exacerbated by the fact that, when it comes to foreign policy, there is a tremendous amount of overlap between the major candidates.
In the interest of keeping vital global issues in the discussion, Foreign Policy in Focus reached out to scholars at the Institute for Policy Studies—our institutional home—to sketch out progressive perspectives on the world issues we don’t expect to get fair treatment in the debates. Without an informed citizenry, these crucial topics will always fall by the wayside. So read up, and share widely!…….. (more).
