The [Friday] Papers

-

"When I wrote about the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca in 2014, the company was virtually unknown beyond the world of money-laundering practitioners and specialists, which is just the way the company liked it," Ken Silverstein writes for Foreign Policy.

"My story, which ran in Vice, revealed that Mossack Fonseca had helped an astonishing range of oligarchs, dictators, and corrupt white-collar businessmen hide their loot offshore. Earlier this year, the story was cited in an indictment in Brazil that charged three members of the state oil company, Petrobras, with laundering proceeds abroad.

"Now, thanks to a flood of news stories based on the leak of 11.5 million internal company records - the so-called 'Panama Papers' - Mossack Fonseca has become globally infamous. The records show that the firm helped clients launder cash, evade international sanctions, and avoid taxes. More than 100 politicians - including roughly a dozen current or former heads of state - from more than 50 countries have been implicated in the scandal."

And more is coming.

Confirmed: American Bombs Killing Civilians In Yemen
"The 2,000-pound general-purpose bomb, of the American standard Mark 80 series, is the largest of its class. American warplanes typically carry smaller bombs, often in the 500-pound class, in part to reduce property damage and dangers to noncombatants."
