    A D-Day veteran who was reported missing from a care home has been found in Normandy after travelling to France to mark the invasion's 70th anniversary. Bernard Jordan, 89, a former mayor of Hove, sneaked out of The Pines nursing home in Furze Hill yesterday after being told by staff he could not make the trip to Normandy. Donning his war medals under a raincoat, the Royal Navy veteran joined his former comrades on a coach, before arriving at a hotel in Ouistreham, northwestern France, 12 hours later.
  • ...General "Excuses" the Murder of American Servicemen in Afghanistan as due to "Religious Stress"!

    In what can only be described as a pitiful attempt to distract Americans from the obvious truth which is being written, and rewritten in American blood multiple times per week, General Allen excused the actions of Afghanistan's "True Soldiers of Allah". He very publicly declared that the "stresses" endured by ANA and ANP troops who participated in the month long Ramadan fast, have contributed to the very existence of "insider" attacks. Apparently, for the General, this is an acceptable explanation for "vetted" Afghan's to turn the weapons Americans have given them, against their benefactors. It wasn't long ago we heard...

    On August 14 in Afghanistan, Marine LCPL Joshua Bernard was killed in action when he was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade. As Bernard lay maimed and dying, embedded Associated Press photographer Julie Jacobsen smelled a Pulitzer, so she snapped picture after gory picture instead of helping those trying to save LCPL Bernard. After the young Marine was buried, the AP dispatched a minion to Bernard’s parents, John and Sharon, ostensibly to “get their permission” for the publication of the gruesome photograph. John Bernard emphatically denied their request,

    Why doesn't the MSM tell everyone that Bernard L. Madoff was a prominent Democrat and donor. I guess it is for the same reason that they don't Say that Illinois Gov is a democrat.

    I have a few thoughts for you in response to some letters of late. The voices now crying for the impeachment of Bush were silent during Waco, Elian Gonzales and the first World Trade Center attack, Ruby Ridge and the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole. Their favorite president presided over the the largest bubble burst in U.S. economic history (DOT.COM). China, India and Pakistan get nukes. The U.S. bombed Yugoslavia for weeks; hit the Chinese embassy and killed thousands of untold civilians. The U.S. did a lot of bombing from 30,000 feet because Clinton was afraid to lose one soldier....

    SAMIR VINCENT WAS VISITING BAGHDAD when Saddam Hussein ordered the invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. He had not lived in his native Iraq for some three decades, having left in 1958 for the United States and a track-and-field career that would later land him in the Boston College Athletic Hall of Fame. Maybe Vincent's presence in Iraq was simply bad timing.Although Americans were not exactly hostages in the tense days after the invasion, they were not free to leave Iraq. So when Vincent, a naturalized citizen, and Illinois businessman Michael Saba managed to escape by taking a taxicab...

    The Op-Ed that started it all... There are lots of reasons fewer people are watching network news, and one of them, I'm more convinced than ever, is that our viewers simply don't trust us. And for good reason. The old argument that the networks and other "media elites" have a liberal bias is so blatantly true that it's hardly worth discussing anymore. No, we don't sit around in dark corners and plan strategies on how we're going to slant the news. We don't have to. It comes naturally to most reporters.

    President Bush’s nominee to head the Department of Homeland Security, Bernard Kerik, has done a tremendous job in spinning a life grounded in mediocrity and elevated through cronyism, into the PR illusion of a heroic march for "security." The following is intended only as a starting point and resource for those curious about the qualifications of Mr. Kerik. Courting Gay Interest Groups. Kerik, as New York City police commissioner, courted gay and lesbian groups (for example, attending a gay community reception for him at a club called "G") and vowed to review the department’s connections to the Boy Scouts in...

    Israel-bashing French ambassador to UK recalled French Ambassador to the UK Daniel Bernard, who achieved notoriety when he described Israel as "that shitty little country" which threatens world peace, is being recalled. The decision to recall Bernard, 18 months after his undiplomatic remarks were first reported is said to be connected to the outcome of the recent French elections, in which prime minister Lionel Jospin's socialist government was replaced by a conservative administration. Bernard sparked a diplomatic stir at a luncheon he attended at the London home of Lord Black of Crossharbor, chairman of Hollinger Inc., which owns The Jerusalem...
