The president had earlier promised to veto the bill if provisions were not removed that called for the indefinite military detention of U.S. citizens and non-citizens arrested on American soil on suspicion of engaging in terrorism, without charge or trial.

The so-called “troika,” made up of the European Central Bank, the European Commission and the International Monetary Fund negotiated a deal that will cut the principle on Greek bonds and lower the interest rate paid.

Tensions Escalate as Israel and Iran Trade Charges in Embassy Bombings
Interview with Jamal Abdi, policy director with the National Iranian American Council, conducted by Scott Harris
 
Amid rising tensions between Iran and the West, the Israeli government charged that Iran and its ally Hezbollah were responsible for two bombings on Feb. 13 targeting Israel’s embassy staff in New Delhi, India that injured four, and in Tiblisi, Georgia where a bomb was found and defused. Three Iranian nationals fled the scene of another bomb explosion in Bangkok, Thailand on Feb. 14 that appeared to have been set off accidentally in a house a few miles from the Israeli Embassy. Iran has denied any involvement in the attacks.

From Between The Lines: Interview with Bruce Hamilton, deputy executive director of the Sierra Club, conducted by Melinda Tuhus (Editor's note: At the interviewee's request, a clarification was added to the comparison of natural gas versus coal.)

A blogger for Time magazine revealed on Feb. 2 that from 2007 to 2010, the Sierra Club, under former Executive Director Carl Pope, had accepted $26 million in donations from individuals and subsidiaries linked with Chesapeake Energy, one of the largest gas drilling companies in the U.S. heavily involved in the controversial drilling method known as hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking.” The funds were donated for the express purpose of funding the environmental group’s Beyond Coal campaign. The Sierra campaign has succeeded in stopping the construction of 160 proposed coal-fired power plants and is now targeting existing coal-fired plants for closure.

For years, coal has been considered the world's dirtiest fossil fuel, and natural gas was touted as a cleaner alternative to produce electricity and power transportation. However, more recent scientific studies have exposed the dirty side of natural gas, including serious pollution problems associated with fracking, of gas wells drilled in many states.
