    Born in One Country -- Raised in Another I was born in one country, raised in another. My father was born in another country. I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women. I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me. Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father----not my mother. Later in life, questions arose over my real name. My birth records were sketchy. No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate. I grew up...

At 15.65 feet, the python isn't the largest on record.

    (CBS News) Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Sunday it was "irresponsible" for former President George W. Bush to set a withdrawal date from Iraq, and that President Obama should have re-evaluated that date upon taking office. Cain, in an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation," said that a "responsible Commander in Chief" would have consulted military commanders on the ground and asked, "Should we continue with this or should we modify it?" "Look, President Obama changed a lot of other things that Bush started, so I don't believe that he's doing it because it was in the Bush doctrine,"...

    Obama leads Romney, 46-43, down a hair from a five-point advantage (47-42) in August. He has also declined against newly risen Herman Cain, from a 14-point lead (50-36) to half that (49-42). Obama leads Ron Paul by nine, 48-39; Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann each by 11 (50-39 and 51-40, respectively); and Newt Gingrich by 14 (52-38). All of these changes except the one against Cain are statistically insignificant, but it still makes the state closer than the president would like. Then again, Obama’s huge 2008 win was unprecedented in recent history. Al Gore won this swing state by less...

He spoke after a police officer guarding the U.S. Embassy died overnight from injuries in Friday's attacks, which also hit the chief prosecutor's office in the Uzbek capital, said general prosecutor's spokeswoman Svetlana Artikova. That raised the death toll to at least six, including the three bombers. While not naming the group behind the attacks, Karimov pointedly mentioned Hizb...

    WASHINGTON (July 16) -- Al-Qaida may be recruiting non-Arabs less likely to attract the notice of security personnel to carry out attacks inside the United States, the FBI warned on Friday. The terror network especially seeks operatives who have U.S. citizenship or legal residency status, the FBI's counterterrorism division said in its weekly bulletin to 18,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide. ''Finding operatives with U.S. status would greatly facilitate al-Qaida's ability to carry out an attack within the United States,'' said the bulletin, obtained Friday by The Associated Press. The new warning comes amid a continuous stream of intelligence indicating that...

These were not canned auto-responses, they were personal notes, and she expressed her thanks and said she would convey our messages to her...

    self | 6-29-2004 | self - vanity - poll
    If there were no restrictions on age, weight, fitness, etc., would you sign up to join the War on Terror?? This is a vanity poll, due to the news today that the Army may be dipping into the Individual Ready Reserve pool. Several Freepers have indicated they would go if called upon, but they don't think they will be called due to their age. Please post ONLY ONCE, and ONLY IF YOU WOULD GO, so that we can easily see the tally by looking at the number of replies.

    An Iraqi truck driver asked me the other day how long it took the U.S. to establish itself as a democracy. Had to think about it. The war itself lasted 7 years. Then 5 years to get the Constitution ratified. Then another 77 years to get the whole states versus federal rights thing straightened out. Then after another 45 years we finally got around to letting women vote. His remark: "We're probably not going to get all of this done before January are we."

    9/11 Panel Questions Two Hijackers' Help Sept. 11 Commission Wonders Why Two Hijackers Got Help From Two Muslim Men When in U.S. The Associated Press WASHINGTON June 27, 2004 — The FBI long has contended that not a single al-Qaida operative in the United States collaborated with the 19 hijackers in the Sept. 11 attacks. Yet the commission investigating the attacks has identified two Muslim men who may have had advance knowledge of the plot. The commission found that two hijackers got substantial help from Mohdar Abdullah and Anwar Aulaqi after settling in California in 2000. The bipartisan panel created...

    Just over 19 years ago, Islamic terrorists hijacked TWA flight 847. They threatened to fly the plane into buildings if their demands weren't met. On June 15, 1985, the terrorists singled out a US Navy diver, 23-year-old Petty Officer Robert Stethem, because he was American and because he was in the US Military. After many hours of being cruelly beaten, tortured, and finally killed by the terrorists, they threw his body from the plane in a final disgraceful, cowardly act. His body lay on the tarmac for over two hours before the terrorists finally allowed the Red Cross to retrieve...
