On Monday, the U.S. waffle chain decided to show support for its home country ahead of Tuesday’s match against Belgium with a so-called “boycott” of Belgian waffles. A tweet announcing their war against…

Despite the gravity of the charges against Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed, Egyptian prosecutors failed to provide consistent evidence against them during the months-long trial. In fact, the evidence shown in the court was very thin at best, having almost nothing to do with…
