Police initiating fist bump with Brian Laundrie at end of Aug encounter, before they separated couple for the night. Police had deemed Laundrie the victim and Gabby the aggressor. Domestic violence calls are complicated. Full 1 h 17 min bodycam video here: https://t.co/E4icL1DqSy

US: “[W]e hope that, since we did make a mistake, we can do everything we can to right it as best we can” @basimrazzo: “Loss of life is unrepairable…” US: “So we are prepared to offer you… $15,000” “No.” US: “You’re not willing to accept that?” “This is an insult to me” https://t.co/DmWmGFjoly

Publicist Karen Civil is called out on Clubhouse for allegedly hiring a hacker for $20,000 (and the promise of a rap career) to breach Jason Lee’s Instagram and delete content. She denies she paid $20,000 or promised the hacker a music career, but appears to admit hacking claim https://t.co/7nbBn7Op4p

Thing I learned today: there is such a thing as a tail stand for airplanes, and sometimes the ground crew forgets to put one in place. https://t.co/WSsAFFjN8j

"Just after..US military launched..missile to stop a white Toyota [in Kabul], the CIA issued an urgent warning: Civilians were likely in the area, including possibly children inside the vehicle. It was too late..came seconds before the missile hit the car" https://t.co/0pE9cJ8MHO

This take is remarkable since it was the media that reported the truth about the drone strike and forced the Pentagon to come clean about it. https://t.co/lUixa1Ln4g

Detailed story on how Israel used remote-controlled gun to kill Iran top nuclear scientist. “unlike a drone the robotic machine gun draws no attention in the sky, where a drone could be shot down, and can be situated anywhere” @ronenbergman @farnazfassihi https://t.co/dNo8RdfBVR

Pentagon acknowledges that the "righteous" drone strike in Kabul that killed 10 civilians, including 7 children, was a mistake and "the car posed no threat at all." The strike was the result of "one mistaken judgment after another" by military analysts. https://t.co/6U6ACtmRYr

"The result is a job that feels more durable, and sustainable, than any other employment I’ve had. In the past, to lose my job might require only a bad quarter in the ad market, the loss of an ally in upper management, or the takeover of my company by some indifferent telecom" https://t.co/jRXlSPKY2R

Pastor Bob Enyart - conservative host of Real Science Radio who opposed COVID vaccines on his show - died of complications from COVID. Enyart had opposed the vaccines because he believed (erroneously) that they were tested on the cells of aborted babies. https://t.co/gOEw7LngGw

The internet is unbelievable, man. YouTube vlogger spotted Gabby Petito & Brian Laundrie’s van while editing footage, reported it, police searched the area & sadly (but fortunately for the investigation) found her body. That was truly a needle in a haystack found by the internet

New @nytimes investigation: Giant accounting firms send their officials into the government, where they water down tax rules in ways that help their firms' clients. Then they return to those firms, which double their pay. @JesseDrucker @dannyhakim https://t.co/mOt2qZiAbm

I'm heading out soon to cover today's rally defending the people arrested on Jan. 6. I wrote last month about the rally's organizer, a former Trump staffer who was let go and has been trying to get back into the inner circle since: https://t.co/JyS9xSef0x

@josephmenn We just gotta get past this notion that the average American needs a personal VPN. They are the hydroxychloroquine of online security.

one of the strongest arguments for divorcing journalism awards from strict “within the last year” timelines: the Indy Star’s Nassar reporting deserved every award in journalism…but the “impact” didn’t occur within the same calendar year as publication https://t.co/bRenCS3CWA

“North Korea is expanding its uranium enrichment plant at Yongbyon. We suspect this is related to Kim Jong Un’s announcement that North Korea will 'push ahead with the production of super-sized nuclear warheads.'” https://t.co/i9kFZNTqnx

this is a horrifying detail about Facebook being aware of a drug cartel's gruesome content on its platforms and failing to stop it despite being told by its own staff the material was a problem and that the cartel was evading its existing ban https://t.co/QyYryzMjzX

The company that sold the iOS zero-day to the UAE spy operation was Accuvant, a government contractor that specialized in exploit development. And the sale was not exclusive, according to @HowellONeill. https://t.co/xIuIYACu7a

Sources said that Mark Milley did not go rogue in placing the call to his Chinese counterpart. In fact, Milley asked permission from acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller before making the call, one former senior defense official told @laraseligman. https://t.co/lxugeOd6m9

Since a number of people have been asking: yes, what Apple patched in 14.8 is the same 0-click vulnerability that we at Amnesty described as "Megalodon" in section 6 of our July report (https://t.co/ytrtcJDngd), and which Citizen Lab later called "FORCEDENTRY".
