"We've made so much progress in this country, but too many young men, black and Latino, have really felt the brunt of racial profiling. ... This was a really scary moment for a lot of people who wanted to believe that we had progressed."

– Judith Brown Dianis, co-director of the Advancement Project, on George Zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin

Another chapter in the tragic Feb. 26, 2012 shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by volunteer neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Sanford, Fla., was written with the July 13 jury verdict that acquitted Zimmerman. Many people across the U.S. and the world were stunned by the jury’s decision, given that Zimmerman had been the one to follow the black teenager against police instructions, provoking whatever physical altercation that ensued.  Story continues

Drones were in the news again as al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula last week confirmed the death of its second-in-command in Yemen, Said al-Shihri by a U.S. drone strike. While President Obama and many Americans support the use of drones to target terrorists, a growing number of people in the U.S. and around the world take a different view.  Story continues

Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who last month leaked details to newspapers about the U.S. spy agency’s massive collection of domestic and overseas phone and Internet communication records, remains in legal limbo at Moscow’s International airport. The Obama administration had revoked Snowden’s passport shortly before charging the 30-year-old former government defense contractor with three felonies: espionage, theft and conversion of government property. Now it appears that Russia may soon grant Snowden authorization to leave the airport transit zone, where he’s been stranded for a month, and move to new quarters in downtown Moscow. Although the governments of Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua have stated they would grant Snowden political asylum, none of these nations are served by direct commercial flights from Moscow.  Story continues
