WASHINGTON -The Obama administration signaled a sharp departure Wednesday from 20 years of federal policy and called on Congress to close the huge disparity in prison sentences for those dealing crack versus powdered cocaine, agreeing with critics who say it is unfair to African-Americans. Newly confirmed Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer said the administration believes the so-called mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines are so inherently unfair that they have undermined trust in the country's judicial institutions, particularly among minorities who bear the brunt of the law. Breuer and other witnesses testifying before a Senate Judiciary subcommittee said the policies, launched when authorities feared crack was becoming an epidemic in the mid-1980s, are based on faulty assumptions that have long since been discredited, including that crack users were far more violent and dangerous to the community than powder cocaine users.

NEW YORK - Rolf-Ernst Breuer, head of Deutsche Bank AG, said yesterday that the merger between the world's largest banking company and Alex. Brown Inc. has gone "seamlessly." "We can say, `Well done,'" Breuer, spokesman of the group board of Frankfurt-based Deutsche Bank, said during a news conference at the company's offices in New York. "It went rather seamlessly." Breuer said many skeptics expected culture clashes and mass defections, but they did not occur. "One plus one really does equal three," said John Ross, chief executive officer of Deutsche Bank's American operations.

When news of the suspension of Katrin Krabbe, the world's best female sprinter, hit the track world this month, the first thing that came to mind was Ben Johnson. The comparison was inevitable.Johnson, the Canadian sprinter who was stripped of his gold medal and world record at the 1988 Summer Olympics after testing positive for steroids, has been blamed for the worldwide decline in track and field. But this time, there are more differences than similarities.Krabbe and the two other German athletes who were suspended for four years recently are not as well known as Johnson, but they also are not charged with drug use -- they are accused of having tampered with a drug test.

A former high-ranking National Security Agency employee was indicted on 10 felony charges Thursday for his alleged role in leaking classified information to a news reporter. The federal indictment does not identify the reporter, but several news organizations, citing government sources, named a former national security correspondent for The Baltimore Sun as the recipient of the leaks. Thomas Andrews Drake, a 52-year-old Howard County man who worked as a "process improvement" official at NSA from 2001 until he resigned in 2008, is accused of copying and storing classified documents at his home and then destroying the documents and lying to investigators when authorities found out. "Our national security demands that the sort of conduct alleged here — violating the government's trust by illegally retaining and disclosing classified information — be prosecuted and prosecuted vigorously," said Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer, in a statement released with the indictment.
