By all accounts, Efrain Delgado Rosales is a career smuggler.

Border Patrol agents captured the 35-year-old in November while he was guiding undocumented immigrants through rugged terrain in the Otay Mountains in California.

In the past 17 years, Border Patrol agents have nabbed Rosales with undocumented immigrants 24 times, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rosales was sentenced to five years in prison on Friday.

During one apprehensions, agents found Delgado with up to 46 undocumented immigrants.

CIA captives were photographed naked before being sent to other countries for torture, the Guardian reports. 

The photographs, described by one U.S. official as “very gruesome,” raised serious questions about America’s willingness to resort to “sexual humiliation” of CIA captives following 9/11.

The photos, which are classified by the CIA, show captives blindfolded, bound and bruised. Some of the photos include what appears to be CIA officials alongside the naked captives.

Because the photos are classified, it’s unclear how many captives were pictured nude.

The purpose of the photographs was to show the physical conditions of the captives.

President Obama Apologies to Argentina for CIA Actions During Country’s ‘Dirty War’

President Obama apologized to Argentina for CIA actions during the country’s “dirty war.”

Townhall.com reports that the CIA created operation Condor to combat the spread of communism by helping right-wing groups.

“I believe we have a responsibility to confront the past with honesty and transparency,” Obama said in Argentina. “A memorial like this speaks to the responsibilities that all of us have. We cannot forget the past, but when we find the courage to confront it, and we find the courage to change that past, that’s when we build a better future.”

“This park is a tribute to their memory but it’s also a tribute to the bravery and tenacity of the parents and spouses, siblings and the children who love and remember them,” Obama said during remarks at the memorial. “Today, we also commemorate those who fought side-by-side with Argentinians for human rights.”

Feds Prepare to Interview Clinton Aides Over Handling of Classified Material

Federal prosecutors are preparing to interview some of Hillary Clinton’s closest aides as part of an investigation into her use of a private e-mail server, the Los Angeles Times reports. 

That process, as well as a final review of the case, may still be weeks away at a time when she’s in the thick of the presidential primaries.

A federal prosecutor has alerted lawyers of the advisors that they soon will be questioned by FBI agents and prosecutors. Clinton also is expected to be interviewed.

Federal authorities are trying to determine whether Clinton mishandled classified materials by using a private e-mail server.

“The interviews are critical to understand the volume of information they have accumulated,” said James McJunkin, former head of the FBI’s Washington field office.  “They are likely nearing the end of the investigation and the agents need to interview these people to put the information in context. They will then spend time aligning these statements with other information, emails, classified documents, etc., to determine whether there is a prosecutable case.”

FBI Widens Investigation of Inmate Abuse at New York State Prison System

The FBI is widening its investigation into inmate abuse in the New York state prison system following the death of a mentally ill inmate last April.

Now the bureau has opened a probe into the alleged 2014 beating of an inmate at Downstate Correctional Facility in Fishkill by officers, the Poughkeepsie Journal reports. 

Less than 2 miles away is another prison where officers allegedly beat to death Samuel D, Harrell III in a vicious attack. His death prompted a federal wrongful-death lawsuit.

The latest case involves Kevin Moore, who was allegedly beaten so badly that he suffered a collapsed lung, socket fractures, bruised legs, five broken ribs and blurred vision, the Times-Union reports. 

Moore’s assaulted spared a grand jury investigation in Jun 2015 but nothing resulted at the time.

“We reached a point where it became apparent that the investigative resources of the U.S. attorney’s office coupled with the federal grand jury rules of evidence would enhance our ability to conduct a more thorough investigation,” Dutchess County District Attorney Bill Grady said Sunday. “Therefore we, as an office, joined with the U.S. Attorney’s office a number of months ago. And this joint investigation is currently ongoing along with the (Samuel) Harrell case.”
