Read This, Skip That ....

January 12, 2015

The Twitter account and YouTube channel of U.S. Central Command were hacked Monday by someone purporting to be aligned with ISIS. While there are claims in the tweets that ISIS had access to personal data, Nancy A. Youssef reports that the information so far appears to be publicly available from the Pentagon website.

The Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at the University of Virginia, the alleged site of a gang rape in Rolling Stone's infamous report, has been cleared for reinstatement by the Charlottesville Police. The chapter will be reinstated by the university because the police "investigation has not revealed any substantive basis to confirm that the allegations raised in the Rolling Stone article occurred at Phi Kappa Psi," the school said in a statement Monday. The chapter voluntarily suspended its chapter in November after the Rolling Stone article came out and sparked a massive backlash against the fraternity. However, many discrepancies in the story have since come to light.


Charlie Hebdo will publish cartoons of Muhammad in its upcoming issue, the front cover of which will be published tonight. Richard Malka, the lawyer for Charlie Hebdo, said "obviously" Muhammad cartoons would be included in the next issue, which will be printed in a million-copy run.

A guest on Fox News over the weekend said Birmingham, England, is "totally Muslim" and off limits to non-Muslims. Prime Minister David Cameron said (in perfect British form): "When I heard this, frankly, I choked on my porridge and I thought it must be April Fool's Day. This guy's clearly a complete idiot." Steve Emerson, the self-proclaimed terrorism expert who said this on Fox News, has since apologized. Birmingham does have a large Muslim community, but it only makes up about a quarter of the total population. By comparison, 65 percent identify as Christian or non-religious.
