Russia Says It Has No Jurisdiction to Apprehend Snowden at Airport in Moscow

Russia rejected criticism today that it illegally assisted the former government contractor charged with exposing secret U.S. surveillance program, the Washington Post reports.

Edward Snowden, 30, was expected to board a flight from Russia to Cuba but never did.

Secretary of State John F. Kerry said the Moscow has an obligation to help.

“We think it’s very important in terms of our relationship,” Kerry said. “We think it’s very important in terms of rule of law.”

But Russian officials said they have no jurisdiction over Snowden because he’s inside a security transit zone at an airport that is controlled by foreign diplomats.

Accused Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger was never an FBI informant, his attorneys plan to argue today at his murder and racketeering trial, Reuters reports.

It’s important to Bulger’s image to show he was not a snitch.

Defense attorneys said ex-FBI handler, John Connolly, who is in prison in connection with the case, received money from Bulger for information, but their client never fed information to the FBI.

“It should be for the jury to decide whether they believe this person was an informant,” said defense attorney Henry Brennan, of Boston law firm Carney & Bassil.

The FBI investigation of CIA Director David Patraeus has not ended and remains active, the USA Today reports.

Attorney General Eric Holder said as much during a virtually unnoticed exchange last month with Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican.

“While an extra-marital affair itself is not classified as an ‘intelligence activity,’ the investigation of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) originated with the possible hacking of Director Petraeus’ e-mail account, an act that had the potential of compromising national intelligence,” the report says.

While Patraeus’ extra-marital affair was not “intelligence activity,” his e-mail account is another story, the USA Today wrote.

But while taking his girl on a tour of the White House, Tatum’s character, John Cale, must protect the president (Jamie Foxx) from a heavily armed paramilitary group.

Also starring in the film are Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Richard Jenkins and Joey King.

A Chicago cop is accused of extortion for helping himself daily to chips and soda without paying for them at a liquor store, CBS Chicago reports.

Sgt. Ray M. Ramirez, who is described as broke, faces up to 20 years for “openly take items in front of the store’s employees” while visiting the store in his uniform, a federal complaint alleges.

Ramirez is accused of hanging out at the store for about an hour a day, according to CBS Chicago.

A store clerk was wearing a wire for the FBI when he asked the agent to run a background check for $550.

“We never talked, and I never did this for you,” Ramirez allegedly told the undercover informant on May 22. “I would lose my job and be fired.”

FBI Wants to Use a Humorous Video For Advanced-Intelligence Classes

Under the category of the unusual comes this: The FBI has asked the IFC sketch comedy show “Portlandia” for rights to use a clip from the program in its advanced intelligence training classes, according to Marketplace Punchline.

The website cites the Hollywood Reporter:

In April, an instructor at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va., approached the producers of Portlandia, requesting to use a clip from the show’s “Sanitation Twins” sketch (it spoofs recycling culture) in its advanced-intelligence classes, which focus on terrorism, espionage, IP theft and other crime.

Market Place writes:

The clip features co-stars Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen dressed up as sanitation workers demonstrating how to sort recycling into no less than 20 different color-coded bins. Blue for cardboard, black for aluminum, yellow for yardwaste…cobalt for finger nails and egg shells.

The website writes:

Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio suggests the clip is a useful caution against complexity, that too many categories equals stupid.

FBI Is Scanning Driver’s License Images to Make Potential Matches

The FBI is scouring state databases of driver’s license photos to search for face matches of criminals, WND reports.

“A probe photo refers to the photo of the subject of an active FBI investigation that is submitted for search against a photo repository,” states the FBI’s agreement with Illinois, which is nearly identical to agreements with other states.

“The anticipated result of that search will be a photo gallery of potential matches. These potential matches (candidates) will be forwarded to the FBI, along with any associated information stored with the photo.”

The database allows the FBI to use facial recognition systems.
