    SHANGHAI, China (AP) - Never heard of Sanjiu? Bluestar? Baosteel? Minmetals? You soon might. Workers check rolls of steel at a Baosteel production line in Shanghai in eastern China. The company is one of many in China that are expanding their overseas holdings. These Chinese companies aren't yet in the pantheon of globally known names like Sony, Daimler-Chrysler or Citigroup, but China Inc. is fast raising its international profile with a corporate buying spree, spending billions on companies and resources to feed its growing industrial juggernaut. Metals trader China Minmetals Corp. is leading a bid by a consortium of major...

    For more than a decade, federal authorities painstakingly built a criminal case against the man they suspected of being the main drug supplier to the Hell's Angels of Minnesota. After spending untold hours on surveillance, cultivating informants inside the outlaw motorcycle gang, digging through garbage for clues and unraveling cryptic financial transactions, prosecutors this summer prepared to take the case to trial. Then, on the brink of proceedings in U.S. District Court in St. Paul, veteran IRS special agent Jim Shoup came forth with a stunning confession: He was tangled in a romance with the wife of the alleged drug...

    Terrorists Cross From Mexico By David Johnson On September 11th I spoke at a convention in California in remembrance of 9-11. I was but one of about a dozen experts on Islam including several Arabs, Palestinians and Sudanese who certainly know what they are talking about. I also had the opportunity to visit Walid and Maria Shoebat in their home. What a fine and courageous man he is. We had met before but took this time to cement a real friendship and future working relationship. I have long stated that Muslim terrorists are crossing into the United States from both...

    By Debbie Schlussel 6/17/2002 Get Updates You’d be surprised that your morning cup of coffee is tied to terrorism. But for Americans who buy coffee—or anything else—at Caribou Coffee, their “Cuppa Joe” is tied to the Muslim brotherhood, the Muslim boycott of the West, and a bunch of Saudi Sheiks. Caribou is closely tied to a prominent religious Muslim leader, Dr. Yusuf (a/k/a Youssef) Abdullah Al-Qaradawi, who said, “Now we see our brothers and children in Al-Aqsa and the blessed land of Palestine generously sacrificing their blood, giving their souls willingly in the way of Allah. All Muslims must...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - The spokesman for militant Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr tempered threats to continue fighting Monday, saying his movement only planned to wage "peaceful resistance" against the interim government. Al-Sadr issued a statement Sunday from his office in the Shiite holy city of Najaf calling the new interim Iraqi government "illegitimate" and pledging "to continue resisting oppression and occupation to our last drop of blood." But Sadr's spokesman in Baghdad, Mahmoud al-Soudani, called a news conference Monday to clarify that the statement was not a call to arms. He said that many of al-Sadr's supporters in Baghdad had begun...

    Speaking last week at George Washington University's 15th Annual Institute on Current Issues in International Taxation, Assistant Treasury Secretary for Tax Policy Pam Olson set out her views on the United States' international tax policy. 'Viewed from the vantage point of an increasingly global marketplace,' said Ms Olson, 'our tax rules appear outmoded, at best, and punitive of U.S. economic interests, at worst. Most other developed countries of the world are concerned with setting a competitiveness policy that permits their workers to benefit from globalization. As Deputy Secretary Dam observed recently, however, our international tax policy seems to have been...
