Baghdad attack

Is ISIS in Baghdad, Iraq? At least 10 people were killed in bombings in Baghdad on June 27th. Some sources claim 12 have died.

In the deadliest attack, five people were killed and 13 wounded in a car bombing near shops selling car parts in southeastern Baghdad. Another bomb went off at an outdoor market on Baghdad’s eastern outskirts, killing three and wounding eight. An explosion at a fruit and vegetable market in southern Baghdad killed two people and wounded three, writes Radio Free Europe.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi Prime Minister – Haidar al-Abadi – announced on June 27th that security forces arrested Abdel Baqi al-Sadun, a senior official in Saddam Hussein’s former Baath Party.

Sources claim no one has as of yet claimed responsibility for the car bombings.

Saudi Arabia Has Beheaded 57 People This Year Alone


Secular Talk

While we focus on the beheadings in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia has beheaded 57 criminals this year, according to Agence France-Presse.  The most recent beheading was for the crime of drug smuggling.

Is there a double-standard in our dealings with the different countries of the Middle East?  Does it have a relationship to oil and economics?

Court: Middle Finger To Cops OK

TYT Network

However, more insults to police probably will not help the national situation.

According to a federal appeals court on Thursday, a police officer can’t pull you over and arrest you just because you gave him the finger.

In a 14-page opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit ruled that the “ancient gesture of insult is not the basis for a reasonable suspicion of a traffic violation or impending criminal activity.”

According to the Huffington Post, John Swartz and his wife Judy Mayton-Swartz had sued two police officers who arrested Swartz in May 2006 after he flipped off an officer who was using a radar device at an intersection in St. Johnsville, N.Y.

Swartz was later charged with a violation of New York’s disorderly conduct statute, but the charges were dismissed on speedy trial grounds.
