You Can’t Trust “Experts” and Lab Results at Trial

USA - Massachusetts courts have had a bad year. A Massachusetts lab technician, Sonja Farak, came to work high every day for 8 years.

Of course, she wasn’t supposed to personally test the drugs… that was what the lab equipment was for. In 2014 Farak was sentenced to 18 months in prison and was released in 2015. It took another three years for the courts to toss 11,000 convictions tainted by the worker. That is right, the people that Farak helped wrongly convict stayed in prison for another three years after Sonja Farak was released.

IRAN: Trump blasts insane current agreement

FRANCE - Emmanuel Macron has called for a “new deal” with Iran after Donald Trump criticised the current nuclear agreement as “insane” and “ridiculous”. The French president said the deal should cover Iran’s ballistic missiles activity and involvement in the Middle East, including Syria, as well as nuclear issues. The comments will not calm EU fears that Mr Trump is preparing to rip up the existing Iran deal when it is up for renewal on May 12.  That agreement was secured by Barack Obama, his predecessor, and waives economic sanctions in turn from Iran not pursuing its nuclear programme.  Convincing Mr Trump to stick by the deal was one of Mr Macron’s stated goals for his three-day state visit to America, with the French leader initially saying there was no “Plan B”.
