However, McClatchy revealed the names on Aug. 4, and James Asher, the newspaper chains Washington bureau chief, defended the move. It is not unusual for CNN or the NYT to agree not to publish something because the White House asked them, Asher told HuffPost. And frankly, our democracy isn’t well served when journalists agree to censor their work. Given McClatchys decision to publish the names, some journalists who cover national security saw the Times Monday story as a swipe at a competitor and an attempt to rationalize the papers decision to withhold details because the government had raised national security concerns at the time. The journalists questioning the article — who were not permitted to speak on behalf of their employers — suggested to HuffPost that the Times didnt put McClatchys reporting in context, considering it came days after the embassies were shut down and amid several leaks from U.S. officials talking up a possible terrorist attack. These prior moves would have likely already made Al Qaedas leadership aware their communications had been compromised, they said. And the Times, rather than focusing on McClatchy’s publication of the leak, could have given more scrutiny to U.S. officials’ role in spreading the terrorist plot information to (the presumably wrong) people in Yemen. In addition, the Times reported Monday that the al Qaeda leak did “more immediate damage to American counterterrorism efforts than disclosures from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. The claim strongly implied that those NSA disclosures are damaging counterterrorism efforts on some level — though the Times reported new revelations about the disclosures on the previous days front page .
Why Jon Beason Will Help the New York Giants Defense
Benjamin Perez said. “He never assaulted this man. He never tried to assault him in any way. And he does not know any of the other motorcyclists who were involved in this beating.” A second biker, who was in custody, was released Wednesday, when authorities determined that he may have been trying to help. Mieses’ family says he is the real victim. “All of his ribs are fractured. His lungs are so badly bruised that he’s still on a ventilator,” Yolanda Santiago, his mother, told CNN affiliate WCBS. Mieses’ wife, Dayana, told CNN affiliate WBZ that he got off his bike to help the SUV driver. She blamed Lien. “He got scared; he peeled off, and he paralyzed my husband on the way,” she said. ‘We could not have done anything differently’ Lien was treated at a hospital for slashes to his face. “My husband was forced under the circumstances to take the actions that he did in order to protect the lives of our entire family,” his wife said. “We know in our hearts that we could not have done anything differently, and we believe that anyone faced with this sort of grave danger would have taken the same course of action in order to protect their family.” It was Lien’s wife who made the last of three 911 calls the family placed during the incident.
He led the Panthers in tackles with 140 as a rookie in 2007 and was runner-up for the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Award. He made his first Pro Bowl in his second season, recording 138 tackles and three interceptions. He continued at that pace until 2011, when his season ended early with the torn left Achilles tendon.

New York Red Bulls 2-2 New England Revolution: Fagundez, Cahill trade stoppage-time goals
The New England Revolution shook off being dominated for the better part of 70 minutes to score a pair of goals and take an improbable 2-1 lead, but a late header from Tim Cahill helped the Red Bulls salvage a 2-2 draw on Saturday night. A Lee Nguyen penalty kick goal and a Diego Fagundez finish gave the Revs a 2-1 lead in the final minutes of regulation, despite the fact New England was down a man after an Andy Dorman red card. The Red Bulls kept on pressing and found their late equalizer when a corner kick was punched out toward Cahill and he placed a perfect header over Revs goalkeeper Matt Reis. The Red Bulls had controlled play for much of the night, and held a 1-0 lead courtesy of a Fabian Espindola goal in the 19th minute. The match turned on a handball called against Jamison Olave in the penalty area in the 85th minute. Replays appeared to show the ball striking Olave’s shoulder, but the Revs still drew the PK, and Nguyen converted it to tie the score. The Revs went down a man just a minute later after Dorman was whistled for a studs-up challenge on Eric Alexander, but that didn’t stop them from finding a go-ahead goal in the 91st minute. Fagundez pounced on a bad pass from David Carney before netting the goal to make the score 2-1. The Red Bulls looked shell-shocked by the two late goals, but mustered one final push to set up Cahill’s equalizer. The Red Bulls tied the score when Reis slapped away a corner kick to an unmarked Cahill, who calmly placed a looping header into the net in the dying seconds of the match. The draw leaves the Red Bulls two points ahead of Sporting Kansas City for first place in the Eastern Conference, with Sporting holding a game in hand. The dropped points at home do put a dent in the Red Bulls’ hopes of securing the Supporters’ Shield. For New England, the road draw can be considered a good result against a top team like New York, but seeing a lead vanish on the final play of the match will leave the Revs feeling shattered as they sit a point behind the Chicago Fire for the final playoff spot in the East.
