    WASHINGTON (AP) - Top U.S. law enforcement officials offered no explanation Tuesday for how the suspect in the failed Times Square bombing was allowed to board an international flight despite being hunted by the FBI and being placed on the federal no-fly list. At a news conference, Attorney General Eric Holder said the suspect, Faisal Shahzad, had admitted trying to set off a car bomb in crowded Times Square on Saturday. He will face terrorism and weapons of mass destruction charges, Holder said.

    NEW YORK - SuNae Martz is a 10-year-old jetsetter who's crisscrossed the globe more than once. The catch: SuNae is a dog -- a fluffy white coton de tulear, to be exact. Her owner, Gayle Martz, takes her everywhere she flies, from Paris to New York to Los Angeles. But SuNae doesn't fly in the belly of the plane like common cargo. She's first class, in the cabin under Martz's seat. "I don't check my jewelry, and SuNae is my most precious jewel," said Martz, a former flight attendant-turned entrepreneur who created and sells a soft-sided pet carrier, the Sherpa...

    SAN ANTONIO - Families with young children are usually invited to board their flights first, along with other special needs passengers. But what if families with children weren't among the first to board? Might the process go more smoothly? While it might sound counterintuitive, it's something Southwest Airlines has been experimenting with on flights from San Antonio. "The major goal is to try to give a better customer experience for boarding," said Susie Boersma, manager for airport performance improvement. The airline's effort to improve the boarding process comes at a time when the entire airline industry is struggling with increased...

David Mackenzie, of the campaign group Trident Ploughshares, said its activists had boarded a US plane at the airport after gaining access to it by cutting through a perimeter fence. They found the military area and a US plane with its door open. However, they did not find any weapons. One protester...

    CAMP AL QA’IM, Iraq (April 22, 2006) -- The Marines and sailors boarded the train and were ready for its final departure at 2100 hours (9 p.m.). This train; however, was going nowhere. The Camp Al Qa’im Chapel, or “Soul Train” – a name adopted by the 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment – is an Iraqi passenger boxcar converted into a chapel and was decommissioned as the camp chapel on April 10. A newly constructed chapel for the battalion marked the end of the Soul Train’s nearly three-year stretch as a house of prayer. The boxcar served as a chapel...

    According to the FBI, every 14.6 seconds one burglary is committed in America. The primary reason behind this disturbing fact is that it remains illegal to take other people’s stuff. Even if you really, really need other people’s stuff to enjoy a better life for you and your children, you are not “supposed” to take it under current rules. But what choice do tens of thousands of Americans have? Likewise, there are millions of items that –when new and un-stolen-- have prices that most Americans are simply not willing to pay. We all benefit from theft, yet it remains illegal....

    Taking illegals for a spin I got a press release the other day from one of those liberal interest groups. The release called for New Jersey to start issuing driver's licenses to illegal aliens.......Following is the release. Notice how the writer artfully makes a radical idea seem acceptable to mainstream Americans. I am an expert in decoding political spin, so I have put in brackets my explanations of just how the spin doctor operates. Here goes: "The REAL ID Act of 2005 has now been passed by both houses of Congress and is poised for the President's signature. New Jersey...

    A woman whose brother was killed in the September 11 attacks yesterday surprised top members of the House Homeland Security Committee with counterfeit Mexican matricula consular cards bearing the members' identities and showcasing how easy it is to get valid identification to board an airplane. Debra Burlingame, who was testifying on the Transportation Security Administration's screening procedures for pilots and flight crews, wouldn't reveal who made the cards, which appeared to bear the security marks of a valid card, but emphasized that they can be used to carry on daily business. "They look exactly like what I've seen. The back...
