For possible ovarian cancer my symptoms were so vague it could been several things causing them, gallbladder, kidney stones, to damage done by a ladder fall last Autumn. they did a CT-scan that showed a 9 cm mass on my left ovary and 6 cm mass on the right, there is also something on my uterus, the reason they suspect ovarian cancer was a high CA-125 I had no clue there was such a test now my question is why aren't they routine like pap smears and mammograms are>?

A new non-scandal about a Yemeni reporter with ties to AQ

HuffPo has sunken to a new low


WASHINGTON -- James Rosen got off easy. After searching his email and tracking his whereabouts, the Department of Justice has not jailed or prosecuted the Fox News journalist, which the Obama administration says reflects its deep respect for the role of a free press. On Thursday, a DOJ spokesperson said in a statement that "the Department does not anticipate bringing any additional charges. During the Attorney General's tenure, no reporter has ever been prosecuted."

The Obama administration gave no such leniency to Abdulelah Haider Shaye, a Yemeni journalist who had access to top officials in the militant Islamist group Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and reported on evidence that the United States had conducted a missile strike in al Majala for which the Yemeni government had claimed credit.

After Shaye was initially imprisoned for alleged involvement with AQAP in 2010, supporters pressed for his release, and word leaked that the Yemeni president was going to issue a pardon. In early 2011, Obama personally intervened. "President Obama expressed concern over the release of Abd-Ilah al-Shai, who had been sentenced to five years in prison for his association with AQAP," reads a summary of the call posted on the White House website.

The reporter was not released. The U.S. administration has still presented no evidence to back up the notion that he is a terrorist or a supporter of terrorism. "We remain concerned about al-Shai's potential early release due to his association with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula," Bernadette Meehan, a White House spokesperson, told HuffPost.
