    An explosion on Wednesday killed Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a top official at the Natanz uranium enrichment plant, Iranian officials said. He is the third man identified as a nuclear scientist to be killed in Iran in a mysterious explosion in the past two years. A fourth survived an assassination attempt. In each case, someone placed a bomb under the scientist's car. Iranian officials, on state-run media, blame Israel and the United States. "I want to categorically deny any United States involvement in any kind of act of violence inside Iran," U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. "We believe...

    A university lecturer and nuclear scientist has been killed in a car explosion in north Tehran, reports say. Iranian media sources named the casualty as Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, an academic who also worked at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility. The blast happened when a motorcyclist stuck a magnetic bomb on the car, said Iran's semi-official Fars news agency. Several Iranian nuclear scientists have been assassinated in recent years, with Iran blaming Israel and the US. Both countries deny the accusations. Local sources said Wednesday's blast took place at a faculty of Iran's Allameh Tabatai university. Two others were reportedly also injured...

    “Of all the people I interviewed in New Orleans regarding the Kennedy assassination, Carlos Bringuier was the one I trusted most. I could see in his eyes he was always telling me the complete truth.” (Oriana Fallaci, L, Europeo, 1969.) "That weasel walked into my store and started looking around," recalls Carlos Bringuier about the afternoon of August 5, 1963. "But I could sense he wasn't a shopper. Sure enough, after a few minutes of browsing he came up and extended his hand. "Good afternoon," he said. "I'm Lee Harvey Oswald." In 1963 the CIA regarded the Directorio Revolucionario Estudiantil...

    Former U.S. Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) urged the Obama administration on Sunday to release the private legal memo sanctioning the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen and al Qaeda leader in Yemen. "The Justice Department should release that memo," said Harman, director of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and a former chairwoman of the House Intelligence Committee. "The debate on the legal grounds for that strategy should be more in the open." Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union," Harman said the "targeted killing of anyone should give us pause," but that the al-Awlaki was a "good...

    The killing on Friday of Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen described as a powerful al-Qaeda terrorist, has stirred considerable debate about whether it's appropriate for a president to order an American assassinated. Evidently, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain shares those concerns. The above video was recorded just after the first nationally televised GOP presidential debate of the 2012 campaign cycle, held in Greenville South Carolina on May 5 of this year, according to its YouTube page. "He should be charged. And since he's an American citizen, he should be tried in our courts," Cain said of al-Awlaki. When asked if...

    Barack Obama ordered the assassination of two American citizens. No one is arguing that they weren't bad, but this is a terrible precedent. An American President now can order the assassination of American citizens. An American President can now suspend any American's constitutional rights at will. Think about that. Why did we give Timothy McVeigh a trial? Why don't we just kill Case Anthony? We all know she's guilty. Why do we even bother having trials? Over at Huffington Post there is division on this issue.

    Here are two facts: (1) Anwar al-Awlaki is an American citizen and an al-Qaeda propagandist. (2) Pres. Barack Obama proposes to assassinate him. Between the first fact and the second falls the shadow. The Awlaki case has led many conservatives into dangerous error, as has the War on Terror more generally. That conservatives are for the most part either offering mute consent or cheering as the Obama administration draws up a list of U.S. citizens to be assassinated suggests not only that have we gone awry in our thinking about national security, limitations on state power, and the role of...

This was a good thing in this case, but it also opened the barn door for the President deciding to kill an American citizen acting as prosecutor, judge, jury and in effect executioner without any judicial review or due process (especially interesting considering the President and his administrations instance on treating other terrorists as common criminals and giving them full due process and civilian trials== until that blew up and the Congress told them they couldn't bring...

    A U.N. resolution justifies the targeting of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, a senior NATO military official with operational knowledge of the Libya mission told CNN Thursday. NATO has been ramping up pressure on the regime, employing helicopters last weekend for the first time against Gadhafi's military vehicles, equipment and forces. Explosions are heard often in Tripoli, evidence of allied air strikes. NATO began bombing Libya on March 31, under a U.N. mandate to protect civilians during the fighting between government forces and rebels who have seized most of eastern Libya.

The dictator said, in an audio recording on state television, that he still lived in the “hearts of millions” of Libyans, on a day when his regime said Nato bombs had killed 11 sleeping Muslim clerics in Brega. The colonel’s apparently defiant, if elusive, presence after disappearing from public view for almost a fortnight is a sign of the task facing rebels campaigning to end his rule, despite their military progress this week.

Whether sport, art, science, vocation, lying, or incompetence, it can be accomplished in as little as 10,000 hours of practice. Therein lies Barack Obama and his administration's problem with attempting to coherently and truthfully relay to the world what happened during the Osama bin Laden assassination in Pakistan.

    Sarah Palin should receive immediate Secret Service Protection if she runs for President.            Jesse Jackson got early Secret Service protection when he ran for President. Obama asked for and got early Secret Service protection  in the last election. They should do the same for Sarah Palin.  Do I think there is a great risk to her life? Yes I do. I used to worry about it a little. But now I worry about it a lot.  Top people in the Democratic Party and the media  were quick to call Palin a racist during the last election.  And that planted...

    - In the days and weeks before the shooting rampage in Tucson, Jared Lee Loughner surfed the Internet on his home computer in what investigators believe was preparation for his alleged assassination attempt, law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation said. The suspect's focus on several Web sites - covering lethal injection, solitary confinement and political assassinations - could have dramatic implications as prosecutors build their case against him on federal murder charges that could carry the death penalty. They hope to use the computer information, along with notes seized in Loughner's home, to show that his acts were premeditated...

    Did Abraham Lincoln's assassin escape and give a death-bed confession 40 years later? A week ago, I linked to a blogpost by Michael Medved in which he claimed that historically, political assassinations have not been motivated by those with political differences (Lincoln and MLK being arguable exceptions), let alone "harsh political rhetoric": past periods of nasty debate produced no assassinations—the McCarthy era resounded with charges of treason but no major shootings of public figures. Killings often occur in placid political climates of consensus – as with the assassinations of popular, young centrist presidents, Garfield and Kennedy, following elections in 1880...

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - One day after mourning a bubbly 9-year-old slain during the attempted assassination of a congresswoman, residents and fellow jurists gathered Friday at the same Tucson church to remember a federal judge. U.S. District Judge John Roll, who served nearly 40 years, had stopped by a supermarket meet-and-greet for Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords on Saturday when he was shot and killed, along with five others. Authorities say the shooter, 22-year-old Jared Loughner, was targeting Giffords, who was wounded along with 12 others. Giffords' husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, posted a message on Twitter Friday saying "GG" was "improving...

    It's well known that in March 1981, John Hinckley attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan. What's not well known is that several years later the life of President Reagan and the life of his vice president, George H.W. Bush, were threatened again. In fact, not just once. "In the space of 18 months, four situations came to the attention of the Secret Service," says Robert Fein, who in the mid-1980s was working with the Secret Service as a psychologist. --SNIP-- And so Fein and a Secret Service agent named Bryan Vossekuil undertook the most extensive study of assassins and would-be assassins...
