I believe the reason was that this article is focused upon the relationship of the lead editor at RS with the subject of the original story by Tatiana Siegel in October 2022.

There was a later RS article written by Adam Rawnsley on Feb 2023 that goes further in depth on the charges. It's an article not for the squeamish.

If you're curious you can dig up the Reddit conversations off the original aforementioned article. They chalk it up to the FBI trying to stifle dissent, something both conspiracy and socialists agreed upon.

I also believe this NPR article is trying to show how the editorial curtailing of the original story lead to how this story could be spun to such an extent that when the later article was issued, there just wasn't a big shitstorm surrounding it.

So passengers were kept in the plane on the tarmac for two hours with a possible bomb threat?

France is also the only country other than the US with an operational CATOBAR style carrier, and wanted an locally designed (not American) aircraft to fly from it. Adding a carrier variant was a headache for the F-35, and ended up being yet another major reason why they backed out of the Eurofighter. None of the other countries cared about having a carrier version.

There's multiple departments this could fall into.

DEA shares concurrent jurisdiction with the FBI, ICE and CBP (both of which are under the DOJ and DHS). Getting the USAF involves just includes another high level department (DOD).

The DEA has its own aviation division. It has approximately 135 Special Agent/Pilots and 100 aircraft.

The C-26 is based off a 1970's airliner that hasn't been produced for over 2 decades. It becomes prohibitively more expensive to support a growing list of airframes that are no longer in production (i.e. B-52s, A-10s), and for a task they don't feel should be their job they're not going to fight for it.

If this was from the parking lot, then you're going past the Talbot's and B&N, then it's just 1 failed left turn to drive straight into the entrance. As long as you avoid the tree and street lamp.

I've seen enough instances of old people confusing the accelerator and the brake in a parking lot and still making it up to 40+ MPH.

> The fit and finish is atrocious, with massive gaps and parts not fitting all over them.

I remember back in the late 80's if you compared the construction of Honda vs GM, you'd notice a major difference of how the outer body panels fit together. The Honda would be a consistent width all the way through. The GM vehicles were vary widely in how the car panels would fit together. If you look closely at the Tesla Model 3's, they're as bad, if not worse, than how the GM cars were. Compare two Model 3's side-by-side and you'll notice they're not consistent to each other.

One would argue that this should be how it is treated to minimize the chance for copycats.

No press, coverage, notoriety, or infamy shall be given beyond the status of the case once completed.

It's also noteworthy that Atatürk's reforms stressed secularization.

It's literally codified in the 1924 constitution, and reaffirmed in both the 1961 and 1982 post-Coup revised constitutions.

> The Constitution asserts that Turkey is a secular (2.1) and democratic (2.1) republic (1.1) that derives its sovereignty (6.1) from the people.

It was a cathedral for over a millennia, so if your argument is purely about time, then they both have first dibs and longer duration.
