Terrorist attacks against European cities - intelligence failures ?
24/04/2017
Edoardo Camili - Hozint's CEO - considers the Paris attacks as intelligence failures for 3 main reasons:
1. Failure in the detection and prioritization of threats;
2. Surveillance was inadequate and ineffective;
3. Member states failed to share information and coordinate their efforts.
More on Edoardo Camili's point of view on NATO review.

The Heritage Insider news

Californians need more economic freedom—especially in the housing market. A new report by Kerry Jackson catalogs all the ways the state has made it hard to build new housing—leading to Californians facing the third highest median home price in the country. The barriers include California’s Environmental Quality Act, which imposes onerous environmental impact statement requirements and allows opponents of development to litigate against construction; affordable housing mandates; density controls; rent control; minimum parking space requirements; and excessive permit fees. On top of all that, a mindset of NIMBYism and BANANAism pervades the state, writes Jackson:
“NIMBYs: Not every CEQA challenge is based on environmental concerns. Hoover’s Kaye says CEQA ‘provides an easy litigation path to almost anyone who wants to block a development project.’ The Not In My Back Yard (NIMBY) special interests who simply don’t want further development in or near their neighborhoods commonly use CEQA to thwart projects.
“The Legislative Analyst’s Office reports that opponents employ not only CEQA but local land-use policies to block new housing. This ‘opposition to new housing appears to be heightened on the California coast’ where hesitancy ‘about new housing can lead residents to pressure local officials to use their land-use authority to slow or block new development or may result in residents directly intervening in land use decisions via the initiative and referendum process.’
“NIMBYism isn’t limited to coastal areas. Carson Bruno, an assistant dean at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy, says ‘communities up and down the Golden State have successfully prevented countless new development projects.’ Much of the NIMBY opposition is directed at infill housing and therefore doesn’t affect the state’s housing stock, but in many instances, the opposition is targeted at new development and therefore restricts needed increases in the supply.
“BANANAs: Members of this group want to Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anyone. They will use any means they can to block development. A report from the Center for California Real Estate says BANANA tactics ‘often include writing news releases, letters to the editor, and op-eds; soliciting support from elected officials; testifying at public hearings; calling radio talk shows; organizing and publicizing town hall meetings; conducting petition drives; placing postings on social media sites; (and) establishing coalitions of like-minded citizens.’ Like NIMBYs, BANANAs help drive the anti-growth policies that in some jurisdictions cap new development and/or give wide latitude to review boards that hold the future of development in their hands.” [Pacific Research Institute]

  Senator worries that making laws people have to follow will end up being her job. One particular attack that Democrats made against Judge Neil Gorsuch before his nomination to the Supreme Court was confirmed last week is worth recalling for what it reveals about the state of our government. Myron Magnet writes:
“Gorsuch, [Sen. Feinstein] charged, opposed the Supreme Court’s 1984 Chevron-deference doctrine, ‘a long-standing legal doctrine that allows agencies to write regulations necessary to effectively implement the laws that Congress passes and the president signs,’ the senator explained, not quite correctly. ‘Congress relies on agency experts to write the specific rules, regulations, guidelines, and procedures necessary to carry out laws we enact’—the rules that enable ‘the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act to protect our environment from pollution,’ and allow ‘the FDA and the agriculture department [to] safeguard the health and safety of our food supply, our water, our medicines.

Panama Papers wins the Pulitzer! ICIJ, McClatchy, and Miami Herald get well-deserved official citations, but it was truly a global investigation, involving hundreds of reporters and editors on six continents. And World Policy Journal was among those lucky enough to play a significant role.

We worked on stories that uncovered missing taxes from oil revenue in Uganda, a mega-infrastructure deal in Namibia connected to a FIFA-related entity, secrecy in Beny Steinmetz’s diamond empire, and hidden players in Angola’s sovereign wealth fund.
