And an Iranian general to boot, according to McClatchey Newspapers:
The Syrian government is scoffing at the Bush administration's charge that Israel bombed a nuclear reactor operated by the Syrians and North Korea back in September. But if a new report from Bloomberg News is true, the Syrians--and North Korea-- may have a whole lot more explaining to do:
Well, so much for all the bold talk from Pakistan's new government about being "tough on terror." CBN News viewers know all too well the disastrous results of the "peace deals" struck by the Musharraf regime with the Taliban in Pakstan's tribal regions. Musharraf's successors apparently didn't get the memo. From The Long War Journal:
Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) released a ten-point list on Friday--called 'Wake Up America"-- designed to call attention to the direct threat posed to the United States by radical Islam. Rep. Myrick "gets it" when it comes to the jihadist threat--she's the founder of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus, which now has 120 members. Her hope is to get legislation passed in Washington that's consistent with the Wake Up America plan. Here's a summary of the ten points.
Barack Obama had a quick--and effective--comeback for Hillary Clinton during Thursday night's Democratic debate when she criticized Obama's relationship with former Weather Underground leader William Ayers (see my post from yesterday for more background). He pointed out that the Senator's husband, former President Bill Clinton, granted clemency to two members of the Weather Underground in 2000. NRO's Jay Nordlinger took a look at those commutations back in 2001:
Barack Obama took some heat during last night's Democratic debate from both moderator George Stephanopholous and Senator Clinton for his relationship with William Ayers.
Or "inciting racial hatred" to be more precise. For those of you who aren't familiar with Brigitte Bardot, she's the French actress/sex symbol who steamed up the screen during the 1950's and 60's. She's since developed into a fierece critic of Islam and its effect on French society. For that, she's facing jail time. Welcome to the brave new world of Eurabia, courtesy of YNet News:
In the recent, Academy Award-winning film There Will Be Blood, one man's lust for oil - and the power and wealth that comes with it - eventually drives him mad. The timing of the film is ironic. Because as the summer driving season approaches amid record gas prices, many frustrated Americans are questioning the sanity of their government's heavy reliance on foreign oil from OPEC. The group--which is made up of 13 of the world's most petroleum-rich nations--sets the market price for oil
Wait a minute. I thought Hamas was only concerned with the destruction of Israel and posed no threat whatsover to the West. At least, that's what apologists for the Palestinian terror group have been telling us for years (a point, I might add, which has been disproven several times, including by yours truly back in 2004). We're supposed to believe, I suppose, that Hamas cleric Yunis Al-Astal is little more than a Palestinian version of Reverend Jeremiah Wright: a blustery, divisive&nb
Add Abu Obeida al-Masri to a growing list of high-ranking Al-Qaeda operatives who've met their demise in the tribal regions of Pakistan over the last few months. But unlike other deceased AQ heavy hitters, most notably Abu Laith al-Libi and possibly even Adam Gadahn, al-Masri's death apparently came not by U.S. missile, but disease. Here's more, from CBN News:
C'mon Ayman, boxers or briefs? Al-Zawahiri didn't get that much into detail, but he did find time to assure his followers that Al-Qaeda remains committed to the extermination of the Jewish people. As if there was any doubt. Here's more, from the Jerusalem Post:
Just when you thought the Basra operation--after a rocky start--had ended up being a pretty solid success for Iraq's security forces, along comes the Wall Street Journal to rain on the parade:
