Best price I found for potassium iodide 130mg 2-week pack is at abcvitaminslife.com for under $5. Have one for each family member.
Glad you’re making progress, prayers for a quick and complete recovery.
I do take Zicam as well as Airborne.
For now, hoping this wicked headache from all the coughing, will subside.
Good to know, thanks.
Guantanamo detainees say they planned Sept. 11: report
The five detainees at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay prison camp charged with plotting the September 11 attacks have filed a document expressing pride at their accomplishment and accepting responsibility for the deaths of nearly 3,000 people, The New York Times reported on Monday.
The document, which the newspaper said may be released publicly on Tuesday, describes the five men as the “9/11 Shura Council,” and says their actions were an offering to God, according to excerpts of the document read to a reporter by an unidentified government official, the report said.
“’To us,’ the official read, ‘they are not accusations. To us they are a badge of honor, which we carry with honor,’” the paper said......
Pentagon Transfers Al-Marri Into Custody of US Marshalls
March 10, 2009 9:12 AM
Suspected Al Qaeda sleeper agent Ali Saleh Kahlah Al-Marri was transferred from Pentagon custody into that of the U.S Marshalls.
This morning Al-Marri was served with an arrest warrant this morning at the Naval Consolidated Brig in Charleston, SC. At 10 am this morning, he will make his first appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert S. Carr in federal court in response to the two-count indictment charging al-Marri with providing material support to al-Qaeda and conspiring with others to do the same.
Arrested in Peoria, Ill., in December 2001, Al-Marri — a native of Qatar — has been held as an “enemy combatant” in solitary confinement in that Navy brig since June 2003. Until the end of February, no charges had been brought against him.....
Brooklyn: Muslim enters synagogue and starts proclaiming jihad
Brooklyn. New York. The United States.
“Violent Intruders Attack Brooklyn Synagogues,” by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz for Israel National News, March 10 (thanks to Baltimore):
(IsraelNN.com) For the second time in less than a week, a packed Brooklyn, New York, synagogue has been the target of threats of violence by intruders.
On Monday, according to Yeshiva World News, an Arab man in his mid-30s entered Boro Park’s ‘Sephardish Shul’ and began making proclamations of jihad. Members of a Jewish volunteer security organization, the Shomrim, apprehended the threatening individual. They held him until police officers arrived at the scene, arresting the suspect. Detectives spoke with the “Middle Eastern man” at a station house near the synagogue....

Feds: Doctor’s Father an Arms Dealer (Arkansas)
A federal agent says a Russellville doctor accused of stockpiling fully automatic machine guns and grenades has a father who is an International Arms Dealer.
David Oliver, a special agent for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, testified at a bond hearing Tuesday in Federal Court at Little Rock for Dr. Randeep Mann. The doctor, who lives in the small town of London west of Russellville, is charged in Federal Court with possessing unregistered machine guns and illegally possessing military grenades that can be fired from a rifle-mounted launcher....
Narcotics traffickers threaten Mexico and U.S.
Largely invisible to most Americans, just to the south, the security situation is worsening as a result of an intense conflict between the Mexican government and domestic drug cartels and even among the narco-gangs themselves.
Some observers have characterized the fighting in Mexico as a low-grade civil war. Worse yet, by many estimates, the violence is escalating and getting increasingly grisly. For instance, in January, Mexican authorities arrested a man accused of dissolving as many as 300 bodies in bubbling vats of acid for a Tijuana-based drug lord, earning him the nightmarish nickname El Pozolero, after a local stew.
The same week, Mexican prosecutors reported three severed heads found in an ice box. A headless body was also discovered in a canal in Ciudad Juarez, a town known as Mexicos deadliest just over the border from El Paso, Texas. Last year, the drug war in Mexico consumed nearly 6,000 lives double the number in 2007.....
Thank you, Quix.
I’m comforted by your prayers and smiling as a result.

Burying Counter-Terrorism Intelligence
A Look Inside Joel Rosenberg’s ‘Revolution’
By Erick Stakelbeck
CBN News Terror Analyst
March 10, 2009
CBNNews.com - From its open support of terror groups like Hamas and Hezbollah, to its push for nuclear weapons and threats to wipe America and Israel off the map, Iran has become the undisputed champion of radical Islam.
Many believe that the West’s struggle with Iran and the forces of jihad began in 1979.
Click the player to watch the report from CBN News Terror Analyst Erick Stakelbeck.
It was the year of the Iranian revolution and the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan.
The results were the rise of the mullahs in Iran and the defeat of the Soviets — largely by radical Islamists, including Osama bin Laden.
He and his fellow “holy warriors” formed al Qaeda soon after. The group has continued to expand its reach ever since....

Nine Dead In Shooting Rampage
UPDATED: dothaneagle.com now confirms nine dead, including the shooter.
“A gunman who shot several people in Samson and possibly Geneva has been killed near Reliable Products outside Geneva. Geneva County District Attorney Kirke Adams said there are also at least four victims who were killed.
Samson Police Chief Gary Weeks said the suspect had been shot, but it is unclear whether it was self inflicted or whether he was shot by police.
A witness at Reliable said the shooter is dead in the parking lot.....
Just an observation:
The President lays out his five pillars of investment and reform for education.
This bunch in Washington is becoming soooooo predictable: Anything they can’t steal or eat, they just **** up.
...although I have to wonder what more they could do to the “Educational” system. Even the schools out here in Flyoverville are already screwed up as a football bat.
ONE of the extremists who spat hate-filled abuse at the soldiers is a baggage handler at a top Brit holiday airport. Jalal Ahmed was even allowed to continue in the high security job despite being investigated by police for taking suspicious photos of passenger planes. Ahmed, who loads Brits suitcases onto planes, apparently joked he was Osama bin Ladens nephew. But he shocked colleagues at Menzies Aviation at Luton Airport which supplies EasyJet with baggage handlers by being snapped hurling abuse at Tuesdays parade.
When we had training to counter terrorist attacks and pictures of Osama Bin Laden came up he said: Thats my uncle. Ahmed, from Luton, who is in his early 20s, was quizzed by cops after taking pictures of transatlantic passenger aircraft. He claimed he was interested in planes and no action was taken.
Libya frees 136 Islamists close to Qaeda
March 11, 2009
Libya has freed 136 members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, an Islamist group close to Al-Qaeda, in the past two years, the Kadhafi Foundation headed by the son of Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi said on Wednesday.
"Since the start of the dialogue two years ago, 136 members of the group have been freed," said the foundation headed by Seif al-Islam Kadhafi. "Work is continuing to release another group among the 170 remaining members," it added.
Ths schools here in Chicago are certainly NOT models to be followed either.

A new video, in which two German Islamists call for suicide attacks in their country, has surfaced on the Internet, the government said on Thursday. The message shows two men clad in combat gear, identified as the brothers Mounir and Yassim C -- aged 27 and 24 -- from the western city of Bonn but of Moroccan origin, a government spokesman told AFP. According to the spokesman, the pair call for suicide attacks to be carried out on German soil, adding: "Opt for life after death ... there is no peace," confirming earlier reports in mass circulation daily Bild.
The men are believed to belong to the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IBU) and the footage was probably filmed somewhere along the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, the spokesman said. Authorities have been aware of the video since the end of February and have confirmed its authenticity.
Bulgaria State Security Tipped Off about Fundementalist Islam Threats
March 12, 2009
New signals about manifestations of radical Islam in 15 Bulgarian municipalities were submitted Thursday to the State Agency for National Security (DANS). The Islamic activities were uncovered by the independent Members of Parliament (MPs) Yane Yanev, and Dimitar Abazheiv. Yanev, who is the leader of the "Order, Law and Justice" party announced the news upon conclusion of his Thursday meeting with the DANS Director, Petko Sertov.
Yanev told Sertov that there are several channels funneling Saudi Arabian and Egyptian money in Bulgaria, slated to support Islamic fundamentalism under the form of illegal schools, extra-curricular activities, bribery of the local Muslim population and even to force Bulgarian Muslims to adhere to radical Islamic practices. Magazines glorifying the Muslim religion, including comments about the September 11 terrorists attacks in New York, were among the materials submitted by Yanev to DANS.
Thanks for the ping Oorang - It’s been way too quiet on the terror front.

Thanks, just heard the news on FOX.
Thanks much WCGal.
From Laura Mansfield:
A new message from Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was released this morning. The message takes the form of an audio tape played over a still image. The message is 33 minutes, 29 seconds, and includes English subtitles. Transcripts were released by As Sahab in both English and Arabic.
A copy can be downloaded from http://www.lauramansfield.com/UBLPalestine.rm
bin Laden tape observation:
UBL references “Resolution 1701” in his latest diatribe.
United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701 is a resolution that was intended to resolve the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict.
It was unanimously approved by the United Nations Security Council on 11 August 2006.
The 8/11 date gives me pause - so just head’s up.

GABORONE - A man is helping the police with investigations concerning the stealing of 16 drums containing radioactive waste, says the Minister of Communications, Science and Technology, Mrs Pelonomi Venson-Moitoi.
She explained that on October 10 last year, Poseidon Geophysics, a company contracted by CIC Energy, reported to the Department of Radiation Protection that 16 drums containing soil contaminated with Cesium -137 were stolen at the Mmamabula Coal Mine area. She added that the contaminated soil was dumped at the site. Minister Venson-Moitoi, who was answering a question in Parliament, went on to say that on January 15, the company reported that 15 drums had been found, but that one drum is still missing and efforts are still ongoing to locate it.
Bulgarian Villages had Celebrated September 11 Attacks
There had been celebrations of the September 11 terrorist attacks in some villages in the Bulgarian Rodopi mountain, MP Yane Yanev revealed late Monday, quoted by novinite.com. Yanev made this stunning revelation as he explained that at least 15 municipalities in the Rodopi mountain region are attempting to convert their citizens to radical Islam, through school teaching and other methods.
Earlier Monday it was announced that Bulgaria's State Agency for National Security had arrested the Mayor town of Garmen, Ahmed Bashev and a teacher of religion Murad Bushnak, over the promotion of radical Islamism, after a warning from Yanev. It was expected that the two will be charged for crimes against national and racial equality as well as against religious teachings. Days earlier Yane Yanev had accused Ahmed Bashev of spreading radical Islam in Bulgaria via funds by an Arabian foundation. In the village of Ribnovo a school director had forced all the teachers and students to wear non-secular clothes.
The Rodopi mountains are home to most of Bulgaria's Muslim minorities - including the Muslim Bulgarians, locally called Pomaks, that predominate in the western parts and a large concentration of Bulgarian Turks, particularly in the Eastern Rodopi. There had been longtime suspicions that ministers from Middle East countries had been spreading teachings of radical Islam in the region. Many of the locals find these teachings foreign and hostile, but the region's remote location may have let them root just out of the central administration's watch.
In Arizona, after determining the subjects of an international terrorism case were involved in local criminal activity, the case was referred to local law enforcement. In New Mexico, several individuals linked to FBI investigations-including an MS-13 gang member-were identified. In Tennessee, we developed-with our partners-a formal process for collecting, sharing, and analyzing suspicious activity reports, looking for trends and patterns.
These cooperative efforts-and many more like them-have been made possible through the work of intelligence fusion centers around the country. These centers, usually set up by states or major urban areas and run by state or local authorities, are often supported by federal law enforcement, including the FBI.
Speaking at the Kansas City conference, our Chief Intel Officer Don Van Duyn said that "while we still have work to do to make the information process more seamless," the FBI is committed to "expanding our interconnectedness" to help combat threats from terrorist and criminal networks. He also said that during the past year we have rolled out-to all of our 56 field offices-standardized intelligence operations structures, roles, and procedures to enhance our collaboration with our partners.
thanks for the ping
Vito Pilieci, The Ottawa CitizenMarch 17, 2009
A court case in British Columbia has the potential to drastically change the Canadian Internet landscape by making search engines such as Google and Yahoo illegal.
A case brought against the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) by a small search engine for BitTorrent files, called ISOHunt Web Technologies Inc., is raising questions about whether search engines are liable for the sharing of copyright-protected content online.
The question before the British Columbia Supreme Court is, if a site like ISOHunt allows people to find a pirated copy of Watchmen or The Dark Knight, is it breaching Canadian copyright law?
Very interesting, thanks.
