    (CNSNews.com) – Although no group has claimed responsibility for Monday’s deadly bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon, a leading al-Qaeda ideologue last year recommended that jihadists in America include sporting events in their list of prospective terror targets.

    Some Internet news outlets have speculated that a man named Dan Wolfe, who uses the twitter handle @patritousa76, is the Weinergate hacker.  Mr. Wolfe was the first and likely only person to copy the yfrog URL of the now infamous lewd image sent from the @RepWeiner twitter account and then tweet it from his own account. Earlier this evening, Big Government contributor Lee Stranahan reached out to Mr. Wolfe via twitter; Wolfe went on record denying hacking into Congressman Anthony Weiner’s verified account: @Stranahan @RepWeiner I had nothing at all to do with the picture being posted on the @RepWeiner...

    ABC has the pictures of Umar Farouk Abdulmutalla's underwear: And you can see for yourself none of the present day security at our airports would of protected us against that, except the technology our Congress is attempting to ban: Privacy advocates, for example, have tried to stop or at least slow the introduction of advanced checkpoint screening devices that use so-called millimeter waves to create an image of a passenger’s body, so officers can see under clothing to determine if a weapon or explosive has been hidden. Security officers, in a private area, review the images, which are not stored....

    MANILA, Philippines — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton drew loud applause at a town hall meeting with students Friday in the Philippines by giving the right answer to the most pressing question: Is Manny Pacquiao going to win this weekend? The most popular Filipino will be back in the boxing ring in Las Vegas on Saturday to take on Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico in a 145-pound (66-kilogram) fight that will be closely watched back home. "Of course the Pacman's going to win. I mean, is there any doubt?" Clinton said at the University of Santo Tomas in...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- They didn't have names, they no longer had a home, and yesterday afternoon they no longer had each other. Two brown-coated boxer dogs, alone on an isolated stretch of Richmond Terrace in Mariners Harbor, likely strayed into traffic. One animal was struck and killed; the other, loyal to its companion, defied vehicles to protect the body.

    In the new issue of Us Weekly, presidential candidate Barack Obama invited news director Lara Cohen to join his campaign for a day. He described some of his best Just Like Us moments, and took our Presidential Pop Quiz (where he revealed that his daughters think Britney and Paris are "yuck"). Some excerpts from the Us interview: How familiar are you with Us Weekly? My wife reads it. --snip-- So, boxers or briefs? Bill Clinton said he wore boxers in a 1992 interview with MTV. I don't answer those humiliating questions. But whichever one it is, I look good in...

    CAIRO (Reuters) - Two Egyptian heavyweight boxers abandoned their team-mates and disappeared after arriving in the United States for the World Boxing Championships, the official Middle East News Agency (MENA) said on Tuesday. Wael Talaat, director of the Egyptian Boxing Association, said Emad Abdel-Halim and Ahmed Samir went missing shortly after the team arrived at a U.S. airport, the agency reported. Talaat said the association would consider suspending the two athletes permanently. He did not say why the two boxers had fled, but several Egyptian athletes, mainly boxers and wrestlers, have done the same in the past to seek better...

    A scantily clad, 32-year-old man was found dead early Monday in a pool of blood in an owl cage at the Moscow Zoo. A bird keeper at the zoo found the man, Alexander Luparev at about 10 a.m., lying in the cage, which is home to a Siberina long-tailed tawny owl. Luparev, who fixed gas pipes for a living, was wearing only boxer shorts. Vladimir Zdorenko, deputy prosecutor at the Presnenskaya interdistrict prosecutor's office, said it was not clear what killed the man --‑blood loss from a blow to the head, or freezing to death. Luparev's clothes were strewn across...

    A Montgomery County judge yesterday returned to prison a Derwood man who many think should never have been released into the home of his teen victim. Circuit Court Judge Durke H. Thompson reinstated the 81/2 years remaining in Sidney Ray Richardson's sentence for raping his 9-year-old stepdaughter from 1995 to 1997. In 1998, Judge Thompson sentenced Richardson, 53, to 10 years, suspending all but 18 months. Judge Thompson then allowed Richardson back into the child's home at the request of the mother, Cynthia Richardson, in 2001. The child gave birth to a baby girl in November of that year, and...

Looks like we didn't send our best amateurs to England (just 1 champion) and I wonder if we did in the baseball event. I know it provides experience, but it seems we often send weak representatives to international meets (particularly boxing)and then our athletes (and national pride) get embarassed. This needs to be balanced out. Here is the report from the Liverpool press: US mauled by English...
