    In many circles, the Clintons are notorious for having enemies who mysteriously disappear at the opportune moment. reviewers played on this theme in mocking "5 Star" reviews of Hillary Clinton'sunpopular new flop of a campaign book — which even at the low, low price of $10, people seem resolute not to buy for some inexplicable reason. That doesn't stop people from buying Clinton insurance by giving the book stellar reviews. Amazon user Amy gave Stronger Together a "5.0 out of 5 stars," with a brief review entitled, "I want to live." Her review proved rather succinct: "Nothing new here....

I also said that emergency emigration of all Jews should begin at once. The Jewish people suffered untold horrors In the Ukraine. Not one Jew should have stayed after a million of Jews were slaughtered in the country during WWII.

    MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — A team of suicide bombers and gunmen disguised as soldiers assaulted an African Union base in the Somali capital on Saturday, sparking a two-hour gunfight that left at least 10 people dead, security officials said. The al-Qaida-linked Islamist militant group that claimed the attack said one of the bombers was Somali-American. The attack underscored the militants' ability to carry out complex and deadly operations even after AU troops forced them from most of Mogadishu and a famine in their strongholds weakened their forces. Earlier this month, Kenya sent troops into Somalia following a string of cross-border...

    WASHINGTON - Political comedy often is intended to stir controversy, but this doesn't usually involve broadcasting rights and the public affairs network C-SPAN. The cable network asked two Internet video providers, YouTube and IFILM, to pull clips of Stephen Colbert's April 29 performance at the White House Correspondents Association dinner from their Web sites. C-SPAN said it contacted the companies because the copyrighted material was posted online without its permission. Both YouTube and IFILM complied with the request. Colbert hosts a satirical current events show on Comedy Central and performed his comedy routine at the correspondent's dinner. YouTube posted the...

    WASHINGTON A blistering comedy “tribute” to President Bush by Comedy Central’s faux talk show host Stephen Colbert at the White House Correspondent Dinner Saturday night left George and Laura Bush unsmiling at its close. Earlier, the president had delivered his talk to the 2700 attendees, including many celebrities and top officials, with the help of a Bush impersonator. Colbert, who spoke in the guise of his talk show character, who ostensibly supports the president strongly, urged the Bush to ignore his low approval ratings, saying they were based on reality, “and reality has a well-known liberal bias.” He attacked those...

    Iran 'sponsors assassination' of Sunni pilots who bombed Teheran By Toby Harnden in Suleimaniya, Aqeel Hussein in Baghdad and Colin Freeman (Filed: 29/10/2005) Iran is backing a Shia insurgent campaign of systematically assassinating former elite Iraqi air force pilots as part of a covert sectarian war against Sunnis, according to senior politicians in Baghdad. The spate of murders of pilots has prompted an intervention from Jalal Talabani, Iraq's president, who has offered them safe haven in his native Kurdistan even though some of them were involved in dropping chemical weapons there. Alleged Iranian involvement in the killings has heightened sectarian...

    Clinton's Worst Crimes By David L. Harten January 26, 2001 President Clinton was impeached for the wrong crimes. Unlike most Republicans, I never thought Clinton should have been impeached for his affair with Monica Lewinsky. Yes, it was immoral, but as my wife likes to say, Americans elected him to be President, not Pope. At the beginning of the impeachment drive, I agreed with those who argued, "Nobody died because of Clinton's extramarital affair." Surely, I thought, other Presidents had done much worse actions that had cost people's lives. However, Clinton's later acts to distract Americans from his extramarital affair...

Explosions and gunfire shook the streets throughout the day and U.S. troops entered the flashpoint Old City neighborhood, where al-Sadr's Mahdi Army was based. The clashes Tuesday killed...

    Afghan warlord's forces bombed after attacking US troops A B-52 bomber has been called into combat in Afghanistan to protect US special forces battling a local warlord's troops outside their base. No American soldiers were injured during Sunday's shoot-out in western Afghanistan, but at least 11 Afghans were killed in the fighting. The battle began when a group of special forces patrolling outside Shindand airbase stopped a group of armed men on the roadside. When the patrol stopped, the Afghans opened fire. US military spokesman Colonel Roger King said the Americans returned fire, then called for air support while making...

    HALIFAX -- Newly obtained evidence shows that Canadian soldiers involved in the friendly-fire incident in Afghanistan were firing their weapons into the air at the time of the tragedy. Transcripts of testimony by two Canadian soldiers who survived the bombing last April indicate they aimed their weapons skyward as part of their night-training exercises near the Kandahar air base. That fire was seen by the two American pilots who were flying overhead and misinterpreted the blasts as an enemy attack. Four died and eight were seriously injured in the bombing. In testimony to a board of inquiry, Sgt. Lorne Ford...
