11 of 12 Pats footballs underinflated
11 of 12 Pats footballs underinflated
January 20, 2015

The NFL has found that 11 of 12 of the New England Patriots game balls were inflated significantly less than the NFL requires, league sources involved and familiar with the investigation of Sunday's AFC championship game told ESPN.

The investigation found the footballs were underinflated by 2 pounds per square inch of air less than what's required by NFL regulations during the Pats' 45-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, according to sources.

"We are not commenting at this time," said Greg Aiello, the NFL's senior vice president of communications.

Troy Vincent, the league's senior executive vice president of football operations, told ProFootballTalk.com earlier Tuesday that the NFL expected to wrap up its investigation in "two or three days."

Yet to be determined is what, if any, penalties may be imposed upon Patriots. One source described the league as "disappointed ... angry ... distraught," after spending considerable time on the findings earlier Tuesday.

Part of the investigation that still needs further vetting is how the 11 footballs became underinflated.

The game balls provided to each team for preparation were required to be inspected and approved by referee Walt Anderson two hours and 15 minutes before kickoff before they were returned to a ball attendant before the game.

No alteration of footballs is allowed once they are approved, under league rules and regulations.

The balls are required be inflated between 12.5 and 13.5 pounds per square inch and weigh between 14 and 15 ounces.

The NFL began looking into the issue not only because doctoring the footballs could provide a competitive advantage, but because it would compromise the integrity of the game.

Deflating a football can change the way it's gripped by a player or the way it travels through the air. Under NFL rules, each team provides balls each game for use when its offense is on the field. The balls are inspected before the game by the officiating crew, then handled during the game by personnel provided by the home team.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick earlier Tuesday deferred questions about the investigation, saying reporters should ask league officials. Belichick earlier said he wasn't aware there was an issue until Monday morning and promised to "cooperate fully with whatever the league wants us to, whatever questions they ask."

Belichick, of course, was fined $500,000 in 2007 for having an assistant spy on the New York Jets' defensive signals.

SOTU more popular than last year
SOTU more popular than last year
January 20, 2015

President Barack Obama's sixth turn at the State of the Union podium sparked a more positive reaction among speech-watchers than last year's address, according to a CNN/ORC instant poll, with 51% of Tuesday night's viewers reporting a very positive response to Obama's speech, up slightly from 44% in 2014.

The spot poll only represents the views of people who watched the speech, which may skew more Democratic than the U.S. population as a whole. The sample of speech-watchers in this poll were 39% Democratic and 20% Republican. Our best estimate of the number of Democrats in the voting-age population as a whole indicates that the sample is about 10-12 points more Democratic than the general public.

Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush, saw positive reactions to his State of the Union addresses decline between his 6th and 7th year. Strongly positive responses to Bush's speech dropped from 48% in 2006 to 41% in 2007.

Nearly three-quarters of those who watched the speech -- 72% -- said they thought Obama's policy proposals would move the country in the right direction, about on par with the 69% who felt his policies would move things in the right way after last year's speech. Speech-watchers were most positive that Obama's education proposals were a step in the right direction, though a smaller majority -- 60% -- thought he was moving the right way on immigration.

NSA program reportedly helped US gather evidence against North Korea in Sony hack
NSA program reportedly helped US gather evidence against North Korea in Sony hack
January 19, 2015

A program implemented by the National Security Agency to help the U.S. and its allies track the computers and networks used by North Korean hackers was critical in gathering information that led Washington to conclude Pyongyang was behind last year's cyberattack on Sony Pictures.

The New York Times reported late Sunday that the NSA began placing malware in North Korean systems in 2010. Originally, the purpose of the surveillance was to gain insight into North Korea's nuclear program, but the focus shifted after a large cyberattack on South Korean banks and media companies in 2013.

In the case of the Sony Pictures hack, which knocked nearly the entire company's system offline, investigators believe that the North had stolen the "credentials" of a Sony systems administrator, which enabled them to spend two months familiarizing themselves with Sony's network and plotting how to destroy files, computers, and systems. The attacks themselves, which Sony first reported to the FBI Nov. 24, are widely considered to be in retaliation for the release of "The Interview," a comedy that features an assassination attempt against Kim Jong Un. Pyongyang has repeatedly denied any involvement in the Sony hack.

Skeptics have cast doubt on the official story that North Korea was behind the Sony hack, with many suggesting a disgruntled current or former Sony employee was responsible. Earlier this month, FBI director James Comey said U.S. investigators were able to trace emails and Internet posts sent by the Guardians of Peace, the group behind the attack, and link them to North Korea.

Suspects detained in Paris over attacks
Suspects detained in Paris over attacks
January 16, 2015

At least a dozen people have been detained in the Paris region overnight in connection with last week's shootings, the city prosecutor's office said Friday.

The individuals arrested are suspected of providing logistical support for the attacks.

The arrests were made in the Grigny and Fleury-Merogis neighborhoods, and those arrested were in Amedy Coulibaly's entourage, the Paris prosecutor's spokesperson said.

Coulibaly was killed last Friday in a police siege to end a hostage taking at a kosher supermarket in Paris. He had killed four hostages and is believed also to have shot a policewoman to death in the city a day earlier.

Two days earlier, brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi had attacked the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people and injuring 11. They died on the same day as Coulibaly as police moved in to end a separate siege.

Boehner's bartender planned to poison him
Boehner's bartender planned to poison him
January 14, 2015

John Boehner's former bartender once made plans to slip poison into the House speaker's drink, or shoot him and drive away, authorities say.

Among the reasons driving the alleged assassination plot: Michael Hoyt heard voices that told him Boehner was evil. He thought the Ohio Republican was the devil. He blamed Boehner for the Ebola outbreak. And he thought the speaker was mean to him.

The 44-year-old Butler County, Ohio, man was indicted last week on charges that he planned to murder Boehner -- a plan that he made after being fired from the Wetherington Golf & Country Club in West Chester.

According to a complaint filed in federal court in Cincinnati and obtained by CNN, police learned the details of his alleged plans after Hoyt called officers on Oct. 29.

"Hoyt told the officer he was Jesus Christ and he was going to kill Boehner because Boehner was mean to him at the country club and because Boehner is responsible for Ebola," United States Capitol Police Special Agent Christopher Desrosiers reported. "Hoyt advised he had a loaded Beretta .380 automatic and he was going to shoot Boehner and take off."

Police said Hoyt also emailed Boehner's wife, Debbie, twice.

"If I had any intention of hurting Mr. Boehner, I could have poisoned his wine at Wetherington many, many times," police said he wrote in one of his emails.

Police said Hoyt told them he heard voices that told him Boehner is evil, and that he wanted to expose the Ohio Republican as the devil. He blamed Boehner for the Ebola outbreak and believed the speaker was among a group of country club patrons who complained about his service and cost him his job.

He said he hoped sharing his threats with law enforcement officers would prompt Boehner to apologize, and force him to discuss the issue of Ebola.

Unemployed Ohio man allegedly planned bomb-and-shoot attack on U.S. Capitol
Unemployed Ohio man allegedly planned bomb-and-shoot attack on U.S. Capitol
January 14, 2015

For months, 20-year-old Christopher Lee Cornell had been on the FBI's radar. Authorities said he left alarming posts on social media, talking about violent jihad.

On Wednesday, agents arrested the Cincinnati, Ohio, man before he could put his alleged plot into action.

Authorities say Cornell, who ostensibly tweeted under the name Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah, hatched a simple scheme. It was similar to the Paris attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo, but at a key location -- the U.S. Capitol, said a criminal complaint filed by an FBI agent.

The plan: Set off pipe bombs to put lawmakers and employees in panicked flight then gun them down with an assault rifle, as they ran across his path and that of an accomplice, Special Agent T.A. Staderman wrote.

Cornell was ready to go, the agent said.

He had made preparations with a partner. He had researched bomb making instructions and by Wednesday, Cornell had bought two M-15 rifles with 600 rounds of ammunition.

But the man Cornell believed was his partner was in reality an FBI informant, a man in trouble with the law who worked with the agency to improve his legal standing.

When they found out Cornell had the weapons, authorities made their move before Cornell could make his. A law enforcement official told CNN that there was never any danger to lawmakers.
