  • How Osama bin Laden got idea for 9/11 terror attacks

    JERUSALEM: Osama bin Laden got inspiration for the deadly 9/11 terror attacks from a 1999 plane crash in which an Egyptian airline pilot deliberately downed his plane in the Atlantic Ocean, the al-Qaida has claimed. In an article titled 'September 11 attacks — the story untold' published in its weekly magazine al-Masrah, the al-Qaida said the inspiration for the September 11 attacks was the story of Gamil al-Batouti, the Egyptian co-pilot, who deliberately crashed EgyptAir flight from Los Angeles to Cairo, killing 217 people, including 100 Americans. According to al-Masrah, when the then al-Qaida chief Osama heard about the Egyptian...

In the pamphlet collection here there are hundreds if not thousands of odd publications printed int eh 1850-1945 period that have little bits and pieces of design elements--apart from their content--that make them irresistible.

  • Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike

    03/01/2015 3:09:02 PM PST · by InvisibleChurch · 108 replies
    The Bethlehem-based news agency Maan has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran. Following Obama's threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack. According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Irans nuclear program and were about to sign...

U-V-B-7-6, is read out in a thick Russian accent, before listing a series of code words and numbers. Then, just as suddenly, it ends. The buzzing returns, for another few months. That is what has greeted listeners of a mysterious radio station nicknamed 'The Buzzer' - and code named UVB-76, or more recently MDZhB - since the 1970s. But what the Buzzer is doing, or who is broadcasting it, remains a mystery - with theories ranging from the Russian military to atmospheric research....

Popular style site Racked first noticed Thursday that she's simply called "Kendall" on her modeling agency's website.

The move by the 18-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is understandable. While...

The AF2011-A1 "Second Century" incorporates the legendary John Browning M1911 design in both look and function. The Italian manufacturer, Arsenal Firearms, states that the pistol will remain both ergonomic and easy to fire for anyone who can handle a regular 1911 pistol. A little bit of background info on the company: formed by a firearm designer Nicola Bandini and gun miniature master Dimitry Streshinskiy (Russia). Arsenal owns a popular shotgun company Zanotti 1625, which has a...

"Our leader's haircut is very particular, if you will," one source tells Radio Free Asia. "It doesn't always go with everyone since everyone has different face and head shapes." Meanwhile, a North Korean now living in China says the look is actually unpopular at home because people think it resembles Chinese smugglers. "Until the mid-2000s, we called it the 'Chinese smuggler haircut'," the...

Citing two confidential sources, The Special Operations Forces Situation Report tells how 'operator after operator took turns dumping magazines-worth of ammunition into Bin Ladens body'.

The captain, who asked to not be named, said his plane, which was bound for Narita, Japan, was far into Vietnamese airspace when he was asked to relay, using his plane's emergency frequency, to MH370 for the latter to establish its position, as the authorities could not contact the aircraft.

    Its legal for me to expose your infidelity. And its legal for me to seek $10,000 from you in a business transaction. So why is it illegal for me to blackmail you for $10,000? Most crimes do not need theories to explain why the behavior is criminal, writes Northwestern law professor James Lindgren. The wrongdoing is self-evident. But blackmail is unique among major crimes: no one has yet figured out why it ought to be illegal.
