    The photos of Afghan patients at the US-funded Dawood National Military Hospital in Kabul are troubling. Injured Afghan soldiers, photographed by US military whistleblowers, are seen on beds at their country’s premier military hospital, suffering from gaping wounds, some with maggots crawling out of them. One patient’s arm has a pair of scissors sticking through it. Feet are swollen, yellow, and blackened as gangrene and necrosis have set in. The photos, given by US whistleblowers to congressional investigators and published on the website Buzzfeed, appear to be the starkest evidence of mistreatment that went on at Dawood despite the awareness...

    DAVID Hicks is to cash in on his notoriety with a book deal that could pay a six-figure advance. Terry Hicks, father of the former Guantanamo Bay inmate, said a book was in the pipeline. David Hicks's Adelaide-based lawyer, David McLeod, said he had been inundated with expressions of interest. Literary agents said publishers would pay six figures because public interest in Hicks had not waned since he was released a year ago. ..... Hicks cannot profit from any book sales, but his father can.

    Note: The following threat is a quote: "THIS IS AN OPEN THREAT TO YOU AND YOUR ORGANIZATION TO STAY AWAY FROM MUSLIMS AND ISLAM IF YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOOD FOR YOU." I've been getting death threats on a more or less regular basis for awhile, but haven't posted them. This one, however, was so over-the-top that I couldn't resist. As always, I've starred out the obscenities. The email comes from Dawood Bhaila, THIS IS AN OPEN THREAT TO YOU AND YOUR ORGANIZATION TO STAY AWAY FROM MUSLIMS AND ISLAM IF YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOOD FOR YOU. YOU...

    How jihadist groups are using organized-crime tactics--and profits--to finance attacks on targets around the globe ___ The first blast struck at 1:25 p.m., shattering the walls of the Bombay Stock Exchange, leaving a grisly scene of broken bodies, shattered glass, and smoke. Next to be hit was the main office of the national airline, Air India, followed by the Central Bazaar and major hotels. At the international airport, hand grenades were thrown at jets parked on the tarmac. For nearly two hours the carnage went on, as unknown assailants wreaked havoc upon one of the world's largest cities. In all,...

    BAGHDAD (AFP) - A former Iraqi general believed to be Jordanian extremist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's "military adviser" was arrested west of Baghdad. Abed Dawood Suleiman and his son, former army captain Raed Abed Dawood, were picked up in a morning raid on their house in Khalidiya, west of Baghdad, a defense ministry source said Wednesday. Zarqawi, the Al-Qaeda frontman in Iraq, is believed to have masterminded much of the country's violence, including car and suicide bombings that killed almost 700 people in May alone. He has a 25-million-dollar price on his head. "Abed Dawood Suleiman is considered to be Abu...

    WASHINGTON, Nov 01, 2001 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Already divided between north and south, war-ravaged Afghanistan appears to be moving toward a more permanent partition.The process of partition began long before the extremist Taliban militia was formed in 1994. According to some analysts it started with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.Created as a buffer zone between British India and the former Russian empire, Afghanistan survived the departure of the British from the subcontinent in 1947 because the fear of Soviet communism kept its various factions together.The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 and its disgraceful ...

    NEW DELHI: Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's security cover provided by Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) has been withdrawn, according to Indian intelligence reports. Intelligence agencies passed on this information to Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani, even as secretary-level peace talks between India and Pakistan were winding up on a positive note in Islamabad on Wednesday. The proximate reason is pressure from America, which recently designated him a terrorist and located him in Pakistan. There were about 12 men from the ISI who formed a security ring around Dawood at Karachi's Tony Clifton area, his office and wherever he moved...
