BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 A.M.) – The Syrian and Russian air forces launched over 100 airstrikes above the eastern countryside of Aleppo on Sunday, the Islamic State’s official media wing, Al-‘Amaq, reported last night.

“More than 100 airstrikes conducted by Russian and Syrian warplanes on the town of Deir Hafer and the village of Maskanah and its surrounding area in rural east Aleppo,” Al-‘Amaq claimed on Sunday night.

This claim by Al-‘Amaq confirms earlier reports by Syrian Army activists regarding the large number of airstrikes over east Aleppo on Sunday.

The Syrian Arab Army is currently on the offensive against Islamic State in the Deir Hafer Plain; they are positioned at the outskirts of the town, as they close in on the terrorist stronghold from three different flanks.

Christopher Hitchens: Answers Why He Preached Against the Theocracy Belief System

Brilliant! Mr. Hitchens just gave voice to what I sincerely believe, but couldn't verbalize.

EFF is Suing to Get List of Best Buy's Geek Squad Informants

A Best Buy Geek Squad Volkswagen New Beetle. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) I had previously covered this here in a post earlier this past January. Now the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has announced that they are suing the FBI for the list of informants they used at Geek Squad.
The EFF also posted to their members blog the reasons why they wish to uncover these informants.

The reasoning from EFF's post:

"Sending your computer to Best Buy for repairs shouldn’t require you to surrender your Fourth Amendment rights. But that’s apparently what’s been happening when customers send their computers to a Geek Squad repair facility in Kentucky.

We think the FBI’s use of Best Buy Geek Squad employees to search people’s computers without a warrant threatens to circumvent people’s constitutional rights. That’s why we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit today against the FBI seeking records about the extent to which it directs and trains Best Buy employees to conduct warr…
