SHOCKING footage has emerged of a man being physically and verbally assaulted by two feral teenage girls on a packed rush-hour train this week.

Victim Roger Stapleford said the violent confrontation began after he politely asked one of the girls to remove her feet from the chair opposite, so he could sit.

The girl swore at him in reply.

Tired after a long day at work and suffering from a sore knee, Mr Stapleford swiped her leg from the seat with his hand and sat down.

Witness Rhett Buckley, an off-duty security manager for V/Line, said what ensued was an explosion of abuse.

“It was like something I’ve never seen before,” he said.

Mr Stapleford, 56, a married father of three, told the Herald Sun last night: “The bigger girl got up and threw some of the contents of her energy drink at me. I was stunned, surprised. I just thought, ‘What is this world coming to?’,” he said.

The girl then threw a 500ml can of drink, striking Mr Stapleford on the head and inflicting a 5cm bloody gash to his forehead.

A video obtained by the Herald Sun captures the moments after.

The girl utters a string of expletives, adding: “I hope you enjoy your shower. I hope you enjoy your shower. Free shower.”

“I’m not sitting next to a … Don’t touch me. Next time you touch me I’ll kill you. Kill everything you f—ing love,” she is recorded saying.

A second girl then pours a Slurpee over Mr Stapleford.

“I hope you enjoy that,” the first girl says.

Train terror

The disturbing footage was filmed on the 5.03 express from Flinders Street to Eltham on Monday evening.

“I was angry, shaking, but what could I do?” Mr Stapleford said.

“I’m 6ft 4in and 110kg but just had to suck up what these young girls were throwing at me, in case I was seen as the aggressor.”

A passenger pressed the emergency button to inform the driver.

The train driver asked the girls to leave, which they did, but they reboarded another carriage.

Several witnesses described the pair swearing and abusing passengers and playing loud music before leaving the train at Clifton Hill station.

A second video, of the girls on the platform outside the train, shows them shouting abuse at the train driver and spitting at the train window.

Witnesses have also described the pair punching and kicking several of the train carriages.

“It was so frustrating, because you just feel so helpless – you can’t do anything in case it’s perceived you are in the wrong,” Mr Stapleford said.

“The girls had worked themselves into a frenzy. They were feral – gone berserk.”

Officers apprehended two girls at Clifton Hill. It is alleged that one physically attacked an officer.

Mr Buckley said: “The level of abuse and threats made were not acceptable.

“It was an explosion of abuse, then they physically and verbally abused the driver and then the police who caught up with them.”

Victoria Police and Metro Trains confirmed the incident last night.

Any witnesses should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go online at http://www.crimestoppers.com.au

Two French journalists missing in Syria must be released immediately, France’s President Francois Hollande has said.

Speaking in Japan, he said the men “do not represent any state” and were working “so the world can get information” on the conflict in Syria.

The men were named by their employer, French radio station Europe 1, as Didier Francois and Edouard Elias.

They had been travelling to Aleppo and had not been heard from in 24 hours, Europe 1 said.

Meanwhile, Austria has announced it is to withdraw its peacekeepers from the Golan Heights because of fighting between the government and rebel forces there.

The border clashes came a day after Syrian troops backed by Lebanese Hezbollah militants retook the key town of Qusair.

‘Unacceptable’ threat

“We have indeed lost contact with these two journalists, but we do not yet know the exact circumstances,” President Hollande said during a visit to Japan.

“I call for the immediate release of these journalists because they do not represent any state. These are men who have worked so the world can get information. Journalists must be treated as journalists.”

Europe 1 said its reporter Didier Francois and photographer Edouard Elias had gone missing as they were heading to the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, adding that the French authorities were “doing everything to provide us with information”.

Earlier this week, France accused “the regime and its accomplices” of using sarin, saying it had confirmed numerous uses of the nerve agent during lab tests in Paris.

Austria’s decision to withdraw its soldiers from the Golan Heights came after days of fighting around Quneitra – the only open crossing between Syria and the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.

Austria, whose troops make up more than a third of the more than 900-strong UN monitoring force, said the threat had “reached an unacceptable level”.

This battle for Qusair is over. But now the fight begins to help the people who survived.

Thousands fled the violence; many were trapped inside. Aid agencies speak of alarming reports that large numbers of wounded need urgent care.

There’s not enough food or water in Qusair or for those displaced outside in schools, shelters and on the streets. In the last two days, the UN managed to send in a powerful generator to help restart the main pumping station for this entire region.

But now aid agencies are urging the government to give them greater access to the city. The fight for Qusair was a strategic victory, but a humanitarian disaster.

The UN said the withdrawal of Austrian troops would affect the mission’s operational capacity and it would look for replacements.

Croatia, Canada and Japan had already withdrawn their contingents in the Golan because of the conflict in Syria.

Israel expressed regret at Austria’s decision, and said it hoped it would not lead to “further escalation” in the region.

Israeli officials have voiced fears the civil war in Syria could spill over their borders. They are worried the Golan Heights could be used to launch attacks against Israel – either by Islamist extremists fighting for the rebels, or by Hezbollah militants fighting on the government side.

Ruined city

Hezbollah’s growing role in the conflict was highlighted by its involvement in the battle for Qusair, which government forces recaptured on Wednesday after a bitter siege.

Hezbollah is a political and military organisation in Lebanon made up mainly of Shia Muslims.

It emerged with backing from Iran in the early 1980s when it fought Israeli forces in southern Lebanon and has always been a close ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Its involvement in Syria has heightened sectarian tensions across the region, and the US has called for it to withdraw.

Qusair lies only 10km (6 miles) from the Lebanese border and is close to important supply routes for both the government and rebels.

More than 80,000 people have been killed in Syria and more than 1.5 million have fled the country since an uprising against President Assad began in 2011, according to UN estimates.

International efforts to resolve Syria’s conflict continue, but the US and Russia have failed to set a date for proposed peace talks.

Susan Rice, official State Dept photo portrait, 2009.jpg

June 5, 2013

In a major shakeup of President Obama’s foreign-policy inner circle, Tom Donilon, the national security adviser, is resigning and will be replaced by Susan E. Rice, the American ambassador to the United Nations, White House officials said on Tuesday.

The appointment, which Mr. Obama plans to make on Wednesday afternoon, puts Ms. Rice, 48, an outspoken diplomat and a close political ally, at the heart of the administration’s foreign-policy apparatus.

It is also a defiant gesture to Republicans who harshly criticized Ms. Rice for presenting an erroneous account of the deadly attacks on the American mission in Benghazi, Libya. The post of national security adviser, while powerful, does not require Senate confirmation.

Mr. Obama also plans to nominate a new envoy to the United Nations on Wednesday, but the name of the nominee was not yet disclosed.

A central member of Mr. Obama’s foreign-policy team since he first took office, Mr. Donilon, 58, has exerted sweeping influence, mostly behind the scenes, on issues from counterterrorism to the reorientation of America to Asia from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Among his last big projects was negotiating the highly unusual informal meeting between Mr. Obama and President Xi Jinping of China on Friday at an estate in Southern California. Mr. Donilon, just back from talks in Beijing, clearly took pride of ownership.

“I don’t know when there was a broad meeting like this,” he said in an interview. “For the last 40 years or so, these conversations have taken place in a more formal, scripted context.”

But Mr. Donilon has also hit a rough patch recently, with the publication of an unflattering profile in Foreign Policy magazine that cast him as a sharp-elbowed infighter and a domineering boss, who had strained relationships with colleagues, including his former deputy, Denis R. McDonough, now the White House chief of staff.

Mr. Donilon and Mr. McDonough, however, both denied those reports, with Mr. McDonough saying he had a “very good relationship with Tom.” He added, “It pains me to think anybody would think he’s leaving because of me.”

Mr. Donilon, whose departure is effective early July, said he had planned to leave after Mr. Obama’s first term but stayed on at the president’s request to break in a new team led by Secretary of State John Kerry, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, and the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John O. Brennan.

He pointed to the unusual harmony among Cabinet heavyweights like former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and former Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta, and chalked up reports of unhappy subordinates to the relentless grind of working in the White House.

“I cherish my staff,” he said. “They are a national treasure.”

Mr. McDonough said Mr. Donilon’s greatest policy legacy would be his role in engineering the pivot to Asia. In a statement, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., said, “I’ve worked with eight different administrations and even more national security advisers, and I’ve never met anyone with more talent and with greater strategic judgment.”

The president recently nominated Mr. Donilon’s wife, Cathy Russell, a former chief of staff to Jill Biden, as the State Department’s ambassador at large for global women’s issues – a job that will impose heavy work and travel demands of its own on a family that has seen little of Mr. Donilon since 2009. The Donilons have two children, aged 14 and 16.

For Ms. Rice, the appointment amounts to redemption after she withdrew from consideration as secretary of state because Republicans threatened to block her nomination over Benghazi.

Mr. Obama steadfastly defended Ms. Rice, and after he nominated John Kerry instead of her, White House officials said she became the front-runner to succeed Mr. Donilon, who has been in the job since October 2010 and had been the principal deputy before that.

A Rhodes Scholar who holds a doctorate in international affairs from Oxford University, Ms. Rice began her government career on the National Security Council during the Clinton administration, later serving as senior director for African affairs from 1995 to 1997.

A foreign policy adviser to then-Senator Obama during his 2008 campaign, Ms. Rice was viewed as a potential national security adviser in his first term. Mr. Obama instead sent her to the United Nations and chose Gen. James L. Jones, a former Marine Corps commandant.

At the United Nations, Ms. Rice earned good reviews for lining up balky members behind sanctions on North Korea and Iran. After Mr. Obama’s re-election, she was seen as a prime candidate to replace Mrs. Clinton. But that was before she appeared on television to discuss the attack in Benghazi, which killed four Americans, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

Ms. Rice, using talking points drafted by the C.I.A., said the assault appeared to be a protest gone awry rather than a premeditated terrorist attack. That proved incorrect, and though Ms. Rice cautioned that the account could change with further intelligence, Republicans accused her of sanitizing the truth for political reasons.

After withdrawing her name as secretary of state, Ms. Rice returned to the United Nations, where she kept a low profile, immersing herself in issues involving countries like Syria and North Korea. But she has retained the confidence of the White House, playing an influential role in internal debates over questions like whether to arm the rebels in Syria.

“When she speaks,” Mr. Biden said last month, “no one wonders whether or not she is speaking for the president.”

Unlike Mr. Donilon, Ms. Rice is known for her outspoken views on human rights and other issues. She advocated the NATO-led military intervention in Libya, for example. That raises a question of how she will approach the job of national security adviser, which has traditionally functioned as a broker among competing agencies.

Mr. Donilon has said his model was Brent Scowcroft, the influential adviser to President George H.W. Bush. A tireless student of the bureaucratic process, Mr. Donilon favors exhaustive preparation over seat-of-the-pants advice. He prided himself on delivering a daily briefing to Mr. Obama more than 800 times – scheduling overseas trips on weekends to avoid missing that ritual.

In the last year, with Republicans accusing him of being responsible for national security leaks – which the White House has denied – Mr. Donilon has steered clear of reporters.

Critics have faulted Mr. Donilon, whose background is in Democratic Party politics, for not functioning as a strategic adviser to Mr. Obama. But Mr. Donilon oversaw risky operations like the commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden and took on delicate tasks like managing relations with Pakistan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Russia and China.

With the new focus on Asia, a revived trade agenda and a narrower American approach to fighting terrorists, he said, “We really have changed the strategic posture of the U.S. in the world.”

5:00 PM on 05/20/2013

The Justice Department (DOJ) sought a warrant in 2010 to inspect the private emails of Fox News correspondent James Rosen, according to court documents obtained by the Washington Post and unveiled on Monday. The department calls Rosen “an aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” to the leaking of classified materials, in its application for a search warrant, which was approved by a U.S. magistrate judge in May 2010.

The revelation that the DOJ would classify a journalist as an un-indicted co-conspirator under the 1917 Espionage Act is “even a bigger deal” than the department’s seizure of Associated Press  phone records, said Ben Wizner, director of the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy and Technology Project.

“A line has been crossed that has always been a very critical bulwark,” he said. “That’s the line between government leakers and media publishers.” No journalist has ever been prosecuted under the Espionage Act,what has traditionally “only been used against those who gave or sold secrets to the enemy.”

The DOJ targeted Rosen because he allegedly received classified information from Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, a security adviser at the State Department. According to the DOJ affidavit, Rosen cultivated Kim as a source “[m]uch like an intelligence officer would run a clandestine intelligence source.” But civil liberties advocates argue that Rosen was only doing what investigative reporters are supposed to do.

“Gathering information from sources is a basic tenet of good reporting, and criminalizing or threatening to criminalize the news-gathering process is a direct assault on the First Amendment and press freedom,” said the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Trevor Timm, who also heads the Freedom of the Press Foundation. “We’ve been saying for years that this type of ‘conspiracy to commit espionage’ theory is incredibly dangerous for reporters.”

Last week, the DOJ revealed that it had obtained two months’ worth of the AP’s phone records as part of a leak investigation. While the phone records acquisition was unprecedented in its scope, AP journalists were not accused of committing espionage. Nonetheless, the DOJ’s investigations into both the AP and Fox News fit into a broader pattern of secrecy within the Obama administration.

Such aggressive tactics may have a chilling effect that will make it more difficult to reporters to inform the public, critics warn. On Sunday, AP’s president and CEO said that sources had already become more reluctant to speak to his reporters since the news of the DOJ’s phone record surveillance broke.

“Our democracy relies on unauthorized as well as authorized communication between government and the press,” said Wizner. If reporters who print unauthorized leaks are going to be accused espionage, “it doesn’t mean there won’t be conversations; it means only the official version will be transmitted.”

Fox News executive vice president Michael Clemente roundly condemned the DOJ’s tactics in a statement.

“We are outraged to learn today that James Rosen was named a criminal co-conspirator for simply doing his job as a reporter,” he said. “In fact, it is downright chilling. We will unequivocally defend his right to operate as a member of what up until now has always been a free press.”

At a Monday press briefing, White House spokesperson Jay Carney said he would not comment on an ongoing investigation.

May 18, 2013

Julia Wilson wore pearls and a face of reassurance as she and her husband, Robert, took their seats on an airplane operated by Gold Star Airways half a century ago. Robert Wilson had just been released from a sanitarium. Six months earlier he had suffered a mental breakdown — on an airplane.

“Honey, you are cured,” Mrs. Wilson told her anxious husband as they fastened their seat belts. “That Dr. Martin wouldn’t let you fly if you weren’t — would he?”

The Wilsons believed they were heading home. Viewers that night in 1963 were forewarned of their real destination: “The Twilight Zone.”

The episode, “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” based on a short story by Richard Matheson, portrays a man’s descent from anxiety into startling but possibly lifesaving violence as he takes action to stop a “gremlin” that he — and only he — can see on the plane’s left wing tampering with an engine in the middle of a stormy flight. The show became a classic — remade in a movie, honored in song and spoofed on “Saturday Night Live,” “3rd Rock From the Sun” and “The Simpsons.”

It was dominated by the increasing terror of Mr. Wilson, played by William Shatner; the ghoulish camp of the gremlin, played by Nick Cravat, who was not credited; and the increasingly strained composure of Mrs. Wilson, played by Christine White.

Ms. White died on April 14 at 86 in a nursing home in Washington, according to a death notice published May 11 in The Carroll County Times in Maryland.

Her role in the 25 minutes that comprise “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” may not have been as prominent as those of Mr. Shatner or Mr. Cravat. But it was central to the episode and perhaps the most memorable part she played in her quarter-century acting career.

Christine Lamson White was born on May 4, 1926, in Washington. She received a degree in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1947. She performed in plays in college and moved to New York after she graduated to pursue a career in theater. By the early 1950s she was in Hollywood, where she appeared in movies and television shows well into the 1970s, including “Bonanza,” “The Rifleman,” “The Untouchables” and “Father Knows Best.” Her survivors include numerous nieces and nephews.

In “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” viewers look to Julia Wilson to know what to make of her husband. While he worries, she dozes on sleeping pills. When he continues to see the gremlin out the window to his left, he turns to his wife, calm and determined to be supportive, to his right. At one point he begs her to tell the flight crew what he is seeing even though, when she looks out, or others do, the gremlin is nowhere in sight.

“I know it’s asking a lot,” he says. “It’s like asking you to advertise your marriage to a lunatic.”

Resolved to be devoted, she responds, “I’ll tell them. You just sit tight, and I’ll tell them.”

PHOTO: Joshua Hilberling

Josh Hilberling, a 6-foot, 5-inch, 220-pound former football player, died after he plunged 17 stories from his Oklahoma apartment building, an alleged victim of spousal abuse.

Tulsa police say Hilberling, 23, was pushed out of his 25th floor apartment window at the University Club Tower on Tuesday by his wife, Amber Michelle Hilberling, 19, who is being charged with first-degree murder.

“We taught him to never hit a woman, but what we didn’t think to teach him was to get away,” his mother, Jeanne Hilberling, told ABC’s affiliate KTUL. “We just will never forget him. He’s one of a kind.”

“Anybody that knows Josh is going to miss that smile, but no one more than his proud military parents who wanted the world for son,” she said.

The couple had been married only a year, according to his parents, but just last month their son went to Domestic Violence Intervention Services looking for help. It had been hard, they said, for him to admit he was a victim.

They said Josh, who was in the Air Force, didn’t leave because Amber was eight months pregnant with their first child.

“Most of the time you have a homicide similar to this and typically the woman is the victim,” said Officer Jason Willingham, spokesman for the Tulsa Police. “I don’t recall any situation that is similar in recent history, for sure.”

But Amber Hilberling’s lawyer said that she is the victim of domestic violence.

“This is a tragedy for everyone involved and what it wasn’t — was a crime,” Jason Corns told local television station KRMZ.

Police received a call Tuesday afternoon from witnesses who reported a suicide at the apartment tower, according to Willingham. Hilberling had fallen from the 25th floor to an eighth- floor parking garage.

When paramedics arrived, police questioned witnesses and those who knew the couple, determining that Josh had been “pushed out the window, breaking the window and causing his death,” said Willingham. “It was a heck of a fall.”

At first Amber Hilberling was arrested on second-degree murder, but later police changed it to first-degree when they looked at the evidence. “It tipped the scale,” he said.

So far, no charges have been filed, according to Susan Witt of the Tulsa District Attorney’s office.

“Tulsa police are still investigating,” said Witt. “When their investigation is complete, reports will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office for review and a decision about charges.”

Willingham said the couple had a history of domestic violence and there had been protective orders “on both sides.”

Tulsa police said that investigators found a protective order that that Josh Hilberling requested in May because he said he wife hit him on the head with a lamp and he needed 21 stitches.

The order was dismissed when the couple did not show up in court.

“I can say we have seen absolutely no criminal evidence of wrong doing by Mrs. Hilberling,” said Amber Hilberling’s lawyer Corns, who said Josh was the aggressor.

An estimated 835,000 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner annually in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a 2000 National Violence Against Women Survey.

About 37 percent of all domestic abuse victims are men, according to Denver clinical psychologist Jeanne King, who is author of “Abused Men.” She co-founded the education advocacy group, Partners in Prevention.

Battered Men Don’t Report Crimes

“They are silenced because men don’t speak about it,” she said. “It’s two-fold. One is the shame – it’s greater for men than women. There are also less resources available to men…Try to think about where a center is for abused men and you scratch your head.”

Researchers began looking at husband battering cases in the 1970s. One study a Boston University described scenarios where women struck out at their husbands for just talking loudly.

Others said that after being in the house with children who would “get on my nerves” all day long, they got mad and hit their spouses. One woman said she became violent just because her husband was “such a bore.”

“I was trying to wake him up, you know,” she was quoted as saying in the study. ” He was such a rotten lover anyway. So I’d yell at him and bit him to stir him up.”

Other studies have shown that women are more apt to throw things or kick their husbands. Violence is also associated with sexism, lack of self-control and mental illness.

As for Amber Hilberling, she was released from jail Thursday on a $250,000 bond and will appear back in Tulsa County Court on June 15.

She is required to wear an ankle monitor and surrender any passport she owns while the murder investigation continues.

As the Hilberling family plans a private funeral service, they are broken-hearted over their son’s violent death.

“I want people to remember who Josh was, not how he died,” said his mother. “I want them to remember the kind compassionate friend who would do anything for anybody.”

Josh Hilberling’s father told ABC that the day his son died, he had been trying to leave the relationship for good.

“That’s the only thing people need to know is that when you’re trying to leave, it’s the most dangerous time,” said Jeanne Hilberling.

“You bet,” said psychologist King. “Abuse is fundamentally about control and violence will escalate when a person feels they have lost control. There is no greater sense of loss than to see the victim walk out the door.

President Obama filled out his economic team on Thursday, nominating a long-time supporter and a top aide for the jobs of Commerce secretary and U.S. trade representative.

Obama picked Chicago business executive and political fundraiser Penny Pritzker for Commerce secretary, and economic adviser Mike Froman for trade representative.

Describing both nominees as friends, Obama said Pritzker and Froman would work on what he called his top priorities: “To grow the economy, create good middle-class jobs, (and) make sure that the next generation prospers.”

Obama played up Pritzker’s ties to the business community — a group that has been critical of his administration — but her nomination could face trouble over criticism from unions and her family’s ties to a failed bank.

The Senate must confirm both Pritzker and Froman, neither of whom spoke during a brief ceremony in the Rose Garden.

Obama announced both nominations before departing on a three-day business trip to Mexico and Costa Rica, where trade and economic development are major agenda items.

Pritzker, who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Obama’s two presidential campaigns, is on the board of Hyatt Hotels Corp. Her personal fortune is estimated at $1.85 billion, and she is listed among the 300 wealthiest Americans by Forbesmagazine.

“Penny is one of our country’s most distinguished business leaders,” Obama said during a Rose Garden ceremony unveiling his nominees. “She’s got more than 25 years of management experience in industries, including real estate, finance, and hospitality. She’s built companies from the ground up.”

Pritzker’s nomination, long-rumored, could draw fire from Obama’s union supporters.Hyatt and the hospitality workers union have been involved in a long contract battle, and workers have protested the company’s treatment of them. The AFL-CIO and other organizations have called for a global boycott of Hyatt properties.

Senators may also grill Pritzker over the 2001 collapse of family-owned Superior Bank, which specialized in sub-prime lending, and federal lawsuits against her family over Caribbean tax shelters.

Obama considered Pritzker for Commerce secretary after his election in 2008, but she withdrew from consideration.

Noting that Pritzker turned 54 years old on Thursday, Obama joked: “So for your birthday present, you get to go through confirmation — it’s going to be great.”

The Commerce Department has been led by Acting Secretary Rebecca Blank sinceJohn Bryson resigned last summer amid health concerns. Blank is leaving the administration to become chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Pritzker worked as Obama’s national fundraising chairwoman for the 2008 presidential campaign, using her extensive business connections to help catapult him into the White House.

In 2012, Pritzker had a lower profile. While she was listed among the more than 750 Obama bundlers who collected money from family, friends and associates for his re-election, she was not among the supporters who contributed to Priorities USA Action, a super PAC raising unlimited amounts to aid the Obama campaign.

Pritzker’s relative absence was noted by Democratic insiders, particularly as Priorities USA Action struggled to raise money to compete with deep-pocketed Republican super PACs.

As for the trade post, Froman is a long-time friend of Obama — they worked together on the Harvard Law Review — and has served as the president’s deputy national security adviser for international economic affairs. Obama said Froman has been the “point person” and the “driving force” behind more than a dozen international economic summits.

Citing their years together at Harvard law school, Obama joked: “He was much smarter than me then — he continues to be smarter than me now.”

If confirmed by the Senate, Froman would replace Ron Kirk, who left the U.S. trade representative position earlier this year.

Obama noted that Froman worked with Kirk on new free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia, and Panama.

Critics of Obama’s trade policies noted that, over the years, Froman has also backed such “corporate” deals as the North American Free Trade Agreement, and that many of these agreements have led to the transfer of manufacturing jobs to other countries.

“Folks on Main Street have cause for concern, unlike Froman’s former Wall Street colleagues,” said Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch.

Obama touted Froman’s trade record, saying that “Mike believes — just as I believe and just as Penny believes — that our workers are the most competitive in the world, so they deserve a level playing field.”
