Injustice Unanswered: France Allows Murderer to Escape Conviction?

This is by far, the most gross miscarriage of justice I have ever heard of. This is worse than the O.J. Simpson trial by a magnitude heretofore unfathomable. We KNOW the suspect committed the murder, he has admitted to it. We know from neighbor testimony that he repeatedly, as he tortured Mrs. Halimi, screamed “Allahu Ackbar” and recited prayers in Arabic before claiming he had “killed the Shaitan” after throwing her bodily from the third story balcony.

Imperial Restraint - Why it's Essential that the U.S. Reduce its Global Military Presence

Having more military bases does not mean that there will be more deterrence. The U.S. currently has several dozen forward operating bases in the Middle East, hundreds of smaller outposts, and, as of 2014, a combined garrison of 54,000 soldiers; if deterrence were a certainty, then a force of that magnitude would be able to ensure stability in the region.
