U.S. Northern Command, Report Alleges U.S. Torture


Military Headline News – Rick Rogers

In the aftermath of the terrorist bombings that killed three and wounded nearly 200 in Boston, expect the U.S. Northern Command to get more attention.

The Colorado Springs unit oversees military homeland defense in the continental United States. Pentagon chief Chuck Hagel said the command is ready to help out if called upon.
A soldier based in Alaska was sentenced to 16 years in prison for selling military secrets to someone he thought was a Russian spy. Turned out to be an undercover FBI agent instead.
Former military police officer William Millay was arrested in October 2011.
So ends the drama of the so-called “drone medal.”

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel put the kibosh on the award for cyber warriors and drone fliers without a single medal being handed out.
Instead of a special medal, the behind-the-lines troops will get an accouterment that to be pinned on existing awards.
A commission says there is “indisputable” proof the United States practiced torture after the attacks of 9/11.

The report is by the Constitution Project.
