It’s Official: The Press Has Gone To War

January 31, 2007
By

Many on the Right have always been suspect of the MSM media when it came to reporting on the Iraq War. While the first official shot may have been CNN showing video of enemy snipers at work, it seems that open hostilities have been declared now that President Bush has...

Arkin Forgery Easier To Believe

January 31, 2007
By

Who is William Arkin? From his blog at the Washington Post.

I’m all for everyone expressing their opinion, even those who wear the uniform of the United States Army. But I also hope that military commanders took the soldiers aside after the story and explained to...

Biden Out: Throws Support To Obama

Okay, not really. But then, would he want it?

Besides, Obama already has a slogan of his own!

Boston Threat A Hoax

January 31, 2007
By

BOSTON (AP) — At least seven suspicious devices planted near bridges and other spots around Boston forced the shutdown of major roads, a bridge and a stretch of the Charles River on Wednesday before authorities concluded the objects were not bombs.

"It’s a hoax – and it’s not funny," said Gov....

Give Us Your Tired, Your Poor …

Oh, and give us the masses that huddle with individuals of the same sex … because being Gay is now a basis for political asylum, you see. I suppose transvestites get to go to the front of the line.

God Bless the Queen … er, I mean America, sorry. ; )

Biden: Well, That Didn’t Take Long

He’s like the little train that can’t when it comes to running for the Presidency:

On Sen. Hillary Clinton:

“Everyone in the world knows her,” he said. “Her husband has used every single legitimate tool in his behalf to lock people in, shut people down. Legitimate. And she can’t...

Question For Obama

January 31, 2007
By

Barack Obama has a plan.

Is it fair to ask how it is he thinks himself capable of plotting military strategy for the Unites States when he can’t even get out an important press release without a tyopgraphical error?

Mistakes happen in war and PR. Hopefully Obama can get a...

A Message For A Mullah

January 31, 2007
By

My first reaction to the administration putting off a briefing on Iran’s involvement in Iraq ran along the lines of some other speculation – see Crittenden, Captain’s Quarters, and Bill Roggio. But I think it’s more than concern over the Iranian President, or our Congress and what to do about it.

The...

Iranians Behind Karbala Kidnapping?

January 30, 2007
By

I don’t understand pushing something like this if you don’t plan on doing anything about it. And I don’t think Bush is planning on attacking Iran.

BAGHDAD, Jan. 30 — Investigators believe that attackers who used American-style uniforms and weapons to infiltrate a secure compound and kill five American soldiers in...

Bush Must Pay The Price

January 30, 2007
By

It’s unfortunate, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a lack of leadership in Washington as we are seeing today. Senator’s and Representatives who proudly stood up to take what now appears to have been only a purely political stand by supporting and voting for a war they evidently...

There They Go Again

So much for open government:

House Minority Leader John Boehner (news, bio, voting record), R-Ohio, Tuesday slammed Democrats’ plans to advance the huge $463.5 billion measure through the House on Wednesday without giving Republicans or rank and file Democrats a chance to offer changes in an Appropriations Committee...

It would be nice if they’d at least let the ink get dry on the headlines once in awhile.

Iran: Those Are Some Nuts!

January 30, 2007

I read this Guardian item earlier and was going to let it go. But Jules picked it up and decided to apply a little logic to the issues at hand, as well as have a little fun.

Ironically, it is this very international crisis that may serve to save Ahmadinejad’s presidency, a...

New Orleans: Obama Cares, Just Not So Much

January 29, 2007
By

Given that Barack Obama is said to already be having issues with traditional black democrats due to his, actually more recent, African roots, two little items stitched together in a story out of New Orleans might not do much to help his cause:

Obama also said he wants to know if the...

Dang! If she could get away with staying on the stump just talking as she did the other day in Iowa, I said the woman might have a chance. But if she continues to blow it like this, she’ll be written off months before the first primary.

Is Hillary too desperate, think...

De Palma Film To Feature War Blogging

January 29, 2007

Not sure I’m crazy about the title, considering. But a war film with a focus on new media including blogs? Hmm. War blogging? Or peace blogging ala DailyKos?

HDNet, De Palma team for ‘Redacted’

"Redacted" will focus on the modern forms of media covering the war. Blogs, Web reporting and other aspects...

Update: Just in case, the bit on the upper right could be it, though I thought it was hair. What do you think?

Allah links to a WaPo sleuth piece about a nasty head injury sustained by MN Senator Norm Coleman.

That was his elaboration to my original question...

As a Wing-nut, I’ll just add, you didn’t have to save the really good part where we finally get to shoot the bastards until the end! Assuming we still have guns at that point. Britan did sort of give them up and the French … well, what...

To kidnap troops? Not good news, especially after seeing this. h/t Larwyn. Read both.

DOHA, Qatar (AP) – Tensions between the United States and Iran have risen to the point where a war could be kicked off by mistake, an outcome that neither Tehran nor Washington wants, U.S. military officials and private...
