"South Shore native picked to head up FBI’s Boston office" by Milton J. Valencia Globe Staff September 01, 2015
An FBI special agent in charge of the New York office who oversaw that district’s counterintelligence programs was named Tuesday as the new special agent in charge of the FBI’s Boston division.
Harold H. Shaw, 49, a father of four who grew up in Weymouth and Hingham, will replace FBI Boston special agent in charge Vincent Lisi, whose retirement took effect Monday. Lisi, 51, will take a job in the private sector.
Shaw joined the FBI in 1999 and was initially assigned to the New York Division. He worked on the Joint Terrorism Task Force and investigated several terrorism matters, including the USS Cole bombing in the port of Aden, Yemen, in 2000. He was a case agent following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, and for two years he helped develop the investigation, the FBI said.

And he was the lead investigator for 9/11, huh?
In 2003, he was promoted to supervisory special agent and was detailed to the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center, where he was one of the FBI’s first liaisons to that agency in the post 9/11 era. He later served as deputy director for law enforcement for the center’s International Terrorism Department.
Worked for the CIA, too!
In 2005, Shaw was promoted to field supervisor in New York, where he oversaw an antiterrorism squad responsible for terrorism matters in the Middle East.
And in 2011, he was promoted to assistant special agent in charge within the counterterrorism division in New York, where he managed the division’s international terrorism investigations.
While in that position, he led efforts to disrupt the attempted 2013 bombings of the New York Federal Reserve and also worked to help identify and locate subjects tied to the attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya....

"Magazine salesmen break into homes on routes, police say" by Jacqueline Tempera Globe Correspondent September 05, 2015
Police from three Massachusetts towns are telling residents to “be on their guard” after some door-to-door magazine salesmen from Texas allegedly rifled through packages at several homes and broke into one empty house.
At a joint press conference Saturday evening, North Reading Police Chief Michael P. Murphy, Wakefield Police Chief Rick Smith, and Reading Police Chief James Cormier announced that they are investigating a pattern of similar larcenies in the three towns.
The chiefs said that 100 male employees with the Texas-based Urban Nation company were flown to Greater Boston to sell magazine subscriptions. Investigators are alleging that some of the solicitors, after knocking on the front door and not getting a response, either break into the home or sift through mail, in some cases stealing packages. Problems have been reported in at least three homes in the past week, officers said.
“When no one is home, the salesmen are breaking into homes and helping themselves to packages left on the doorsteps,” Murphy said in a statement. “We want to get the word out about this behavior.”
On Friday, Wakefield police arrested Urban Nation employee Laderius Alton Lowe after responding to calls from homeowners about an aggressive solicitor. Lowe, 22, of Detroit, allegedly was in possession of items stolen from a home on Van Norden Road in Reading when officers found him, police said. They would not say what was stolen.
Lowe was charged with breaking and entering during the daytime with the intention to commit a felony, and receiving stolen property over $250.
Detective Thomas Hatch from North Reading stressed that not all of the solicitors are suspected of wrongdoing. “It’s just one or two people causing the problem,” Hatch said.
Cormier said he is happy that no one has gotten hurt “as this influx of career criminals has literally been delivered to our doorsteps.”
He asked citizens to remain vigilant and “when in doubt, dial 911.”
Calls to Urban Nation, based in Willis, Texas, were not answered Saturday night. Hatch said police are working to get in touch with the company, but phone messages and calls have not been returned.
Look who answered on the other end:
"Who’s Still Afraid of 9/11 Conspiracy Theories?
By Maidhc Ó Cathail
The Passionate Attachment
September 10, 2015
“The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”Whenever someone insists too strongly about something not being true, we tend to suspect that maybe it is. In their denials of involvement in 9/11, do Israel’s apologists “protest too much”?
—Queen Gertrude, Hamlet.
While it would take a small book to adequately document the Israeli connection to 9/11—as Antiwar.com editor Justin Raimondo attempted to some extent in The Terror Enigma—let us briefly recall some of the more intriguing facts as reported in the mainstream media, involving dancing Israelis, Odigo warnings, and Zim’s timely move.
The story of the five Israelis who were seen celebrating and filming as the Twin Towers burned and collapsed was investigated by Neil Mackay in Scotland’s Sunday Herald. The so-called “dancing Israelis” worked for Urban Moving Systems, later deemed to be a Mossad front by the FBI. Despite failing numerous polygraph tests, the young men were deported to Israel two months later. Back home, several of the men appeared on a TV chat show, in which one of them amazingly said, “Our purpose was to document the event.”
Two employees of Odigo, an Israeli instant messaging service, received messages two hours before the World Trade Center attack on September 11 predicting the attack would happen, Ha’aretz reported.
Zim-American Israeli Shipping Co., part-owned by the Israeli government, moved their North American headquarters from the 16th floor of the WTC to Norfolk, Virginia one week before the 9/11 attacks, incurring a $50,000 fine for breaking its lease, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Despite being in the public domain, none of these relevant facts are mentioned in the 9/11 Commission’s 567-page report.
Moreover, Philip Zelikow, the executive director of the 9/11 Commission, is concerned about the spread of such inconvenient facts to the wider public. “Our worry,” he says, “is when things become infectious…. [then] this stuff can be deeply corrosive to public understanding. You can get where the bacteria can sicken the larger body.”
But was Zelikow speaking here as an American government official or as a pro-Israeli insider?
In the same month that he authored the so-called “Bush Doctrine” of preemptive war, which provided the justification for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Zelikow made this candid admission: “Why would Iraq attack America or use nuclear weapons against us? I’ll tell you what I think the real threat (is) and actually has been since 1990—it’s the threat against Israel.”
Yet, instead of investigating the Israeli connection, Zelikow used the 9/11 Commission to sell the Israeli-inspired Iraq war to the American people.
Zelikow’s “bacteria” quote is cited in a 2008 paper entitled “Conspiracy Theories.” Co-authored by Cass Sunstein, who went on to head President Obama’s White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, the main focus of the paper “involves conspiracy theories relating to terrorism, especially theories that arise from and post-date the 9/11 attacks.”
Rather than attempting to debunk such theories, Sunstein and Vermeule claim that those who suspect Israeli involvement in 9/11 suffer from a “crippled epistemology.” This, the authors argue, is due to “a sharply limited number of (relevant) informational sources.” In other words, “they know very few things, and what they know is wrong.”
To counter these suspicions, Sunstein recommends “cognitive infiltration of extremist groups, whereby government agents, or their allies (acting either virtually or in real space, and either openly or anonymously) will undermine the crippled epistemology of those who subscribe to such theories. They do so by planting doubts about the theories and stylized facts that circulate within such groups, thereby introducing beneficial cognitive diversity.”
It could, of course, be argued that Sunstein’s work also suffers from a crippled epistemology—his research relies heavily on pro-Israeli sources, most notably the notorious Islamophobe Daniel Pipes.
Pipes is a bit of an expert on conspiracy theories, having written two books on the subject. “Conspiracism provides a key to understanding the political culture of the Middle East,” Pipes opines in The Hidden Hand: Middle East Fears of Conspiracy. “It helps explain much of what would otherwise seem illogical or implausible, including the region’s record of political extremism and volatility, its culture of violence, and its poor record of modernization.”
Like Sunstein, Pipes is concerned that many in the region suspect Israeli involvement in 9/11. “The implications in the Middle East are quite profound,” Pipes told the LA-based Jewish Journal. “It’s one more brick in the edifice of fear and loathing of Israel and the Jews.”
In the absence of a proper 9/11 investigation, there remains a broad range of opinion about the precise nature of Israeli complicity. In The Terror Enigma, Justin Raimondo tentatively concludes that the Israeli connection to 9/11 amounts to “foreknowledge and passive collaboration with Bin Laden’s jihad.”
It’s hardly surprising then that some of the most obsessive critics of 9/11 “conspiracy theories” have ties to Israel. If Americans ever find out that their “staunchest ally” had anything to do with the mass murder of their fellow citizens on September 11, 2001, the would-be conspiracy debunkers have good reason to be afraid.

"1 Marine killed, 11 hurt when helicopter makes hard landing" Associated Press September 03, 2015
RALEIGH, N.C. — A group of Marines in North Carolina was practicing how to exit a hovering helicopter by sliding down ropes when the aircraft had to land harder and faster than normal, killing one Marine and injuring 11 others Wednesday night, military officials said.
About 20 Marines at Camp Lejeune were participating in the training that requires them to exit through the back of the helicopter using suspended ropes, according to a news release. The technique allows Marines to enter and exit terrain where helicopter landings would be difficult....
