Noshir Gowadia was accused of pocketing at least $110,000 from China which he allegedly used to pay the mortgage on a multimillion-dollar oceanview home he built on Maui's north shore.
Gowadia has been in federal custody since October 2005 and faced life in prison when he was sentenced in November.

Was he as bad as Snowden or Manning under Obama's watch?
Or Bill Clinton approving the sale of advanced technology to China that could be used to wage nuclear warfare?

Amazing story out of Europe!! European men get taller, size of testicles decrease......:-)

Bigger and healthier: European men grow 11cm in a century


Sun Sep 1, 2013 7:01pm EDT

By Kate Kelland

LONDON, Sept 2 (Reuters)- The average height of European men grew by a surprising 11 centimetres from the early 1870s to 1980, reflecting significant improvements in health across the region, according to new research published on Monday.

Contrary to expectations, the study also found that average height accelerated in the period spanning the two World Wars and the Great Depression, when poverty, food rationing and hardship of war might have been expected to limit people's growth.

The swift advance may have been due to people deciding to have fewer children in this period, the researchers said, and smaller family size has previously been found to be linked to increasing average height.

The study, published online in the journal Oxford Economic Papers, analysed data on average men's height at around the age of 21 from the 1870s up to around 1980 in 15 European countries.

The difference is that if Obama were sitting in the WH on 9/11 and Saddam had been giving the UN the runaround to come clean about his WMDs post 9/11, the Democrats would remember how they ALL had considered him a threat just a few years before and more than just 111 would have supported toppling his regime then too.
And once the mass graves were uncovered, John Kerry would be in front of the cameras telling the American people it was the right thing to do because of Saddam's "crimes against humanity".
There was something to gain politically for Democrats to turn tail and let Bush hang out to dry, including John Kerry, when it was a matter of fighting the enemy on their own turf after they made Iraq the frontlines - and the "crimes against humanity" were of no importance anymore.
The difference between Iraq and Syria is it's now Obama's and Kerry's reputations on the line to intervene for humanitarian reasons. There hasn't even been another 9/11 and Syria didn't attack us either.
It's called hypocrisy of the highest order by the same weasels who care about human rights only when there's something to be gained politically.
lol! It's interesting how you continually create a story to make your point....

It's nothing more than damage control and Obama saving face because he thought his "red line" threat would scare them.
Otherwise, there would be no talk of striking Syria. Obama needs permission to use military force from the rest of the world. Not Congress.

“This is different. You’re facing a dictator who vowed widespread slaughter in his own country. Obama did the right thing.”
Note: Saddam killed a estimated one million Iraqis.
John Kerry:
“I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force – if necessary – to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”
John "weasel" Kerry:
"We should not have gone to war knowing there was no imminent threat to America, knowing there were no weapons of mass destruction, knowing there was no connection of Saddam Hussein to al Qaeda."
The long list of democrats whose hypocrisy was so blatant is almost comical.

Does anyone even remember we're still fighting a war in Afghanistan? Or that soldiers have been in harm's way for the past five years and are dying every single day in that country?
Even Obama seems to have forgotten.
When was the last time anyone heard an update from this president or the liberal media about the progress or status of the war in Afghanistan?
We hear nothing but absolute silence.
The same silence we heard about Benghazi, the IRS, and the DOJ confiscating citizens' private information.
lol! Good thing you have your opinions to comfort you son....

Marine Transition in Helmand Ahead of Schedule, Amos Says

By Karen Parrish
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, June 26, 2013 – Marine Corps security handoff and equipment recovery efforts in southern Afghanistan as part of NATO’s International Security Assistance Force are both ahead of schedule, Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James F. Amos said here today.

Amos told the Defense Writers Group that conditions in Helmand province, which he visited last week, are “pretty remarkable” and “dramatically different” from what they were even six months ago.

“I was there at Christmas, and I was there in February,… and we just got back again,” he said.“Even from Christmas, the focus began to [be] the advise-and-assist teams.” He noted the 28- or 30-member teams drawn from across the coalition’s forces worked with individual Afghan army and police kandaks, or battalions, and their headquarters.

“We brought teams in last fall, and we reorganized the structure” in Helmand from seven Marine Corps infantry battalions to two, Amos said. That demonstrates how well the Afghan army has been doing, he added --“really well.”

The advise and assist teams had been forecast for an intense effort through this year, Amos said, but “we missed the mark on that” because Afghan forces have improved more quickly than expected.

Some teams will be pulled out in the coming months, he added, and the advise-and-assist mission has gone well enough that in southern Helmand, Afghan army and police forces haven’t asked for the Marines’ operational help in more than a month...."
