20 April 2014 – Ten years ago today, a man emerged from prison to be greeted by a crowd of his supporters embracing him with carnations and a crowd of his enemies drawing their fingers across their throats. He had served 18 years in prison, 11 of them in solitary confinement.
The man was Mordechai Vanunu, the whistleblower who, in 1986, came to Britain to tell the Sunday Times the story of the then secret nuclear weapons facility at Dimona in Israel.

Die Operation Crossroads war die zweite Kernwaffentestoperation der Streitkräfte der Vereinigten Staaten. Sie umfasste zwei Nukleartests, Able und Baker, auf dem Bikini-Atoll im amerikanischen Treuhandgebiet Pazifische Inseln im Sommer 1946

Navajo Code Talkers

More than 400 Navajo are believed to have aided the war effort as code talkers. Less than 50 are estimated to be alive today when their critical contribution to victory can finally be recognized. How lucky for me to have stumbled on these men on a sunny Sunday in Old Town Albuquerque. Not every day you get to meet true American heroes, awarded the Congressional Medal.
