On Thursday, the Defense Department said that in order to blend in, special-operation forces often don the insignia of forces they accompany. On Friday, after Turkey complained, a spokesman called the action “unauthorized and inappropriate.”
CNN reports that the government has arrested 100 people in another huge health care fraud bust, and based on previous instances of this kind, there are bound to be some scandalous details forthcoming.
The group is charged with defrauding Medicare, Medicaid, and other federal programs for a combined $450 million, according to CNN's Terry Frieden, and Attorney General Eric Holder and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius are going to give details at a press conference later today. This case seems similar to last year's bust, in which the government arrested 111 people in one fell swoop for $225 million worth of fraud.
