    The bitter conflict in Ukraine has cost thousands of lives, but the Russian government has continuously denied sending its soldiers to the frontlines, despite accusations to the contrary from NATO and Western officials. Since August 2014, a small but steady stream of coffins began arriving in villages across Russia, containing the maimed bodies of soldiers killed in "unknown circumstances." Some would be buried hastily at night or in secret funerals, their graves zealously guarded from prying outsiders. Journalists investigating the deaths have reported being threatened with intimidation and attacks. In cases that the Kremlin could not so easily ignore, the...

    MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) has filed a parliamentary query in which he asks Defense Minister Ehud Barak why the IDF is ignoring testimony about Egyptian soldiers' involvement in the murderous terror attacks near Eilat. Several civilian eyewitnesses have said in press interviews that Egyptian soldiers were involved in the attacks. They said that they saw people in military fatigues shooting at them from within the Egyptian military positions, or right next to them. "I would like to know why the IDF has refrained from questioning the civilians," the former IDF Chief Medical Officer wrote, "and whether it is possible...

    New Democrat Talking PointsNote: here's the inside joke regarding "Kennings"... Source The Apology It was a heart-rending story--a blonde waif, her mother dead, entrusted to the care of a family friend while her father fought with the 101st Airborne in Iraq. The youngster was intelligent, friendly and engaging, and developed close bonds with many of the newsroom staff. Then a week ago came the news that her father had been killed in Iraq. Every war casualty leaves a trail of pain, but the story of a 10-year-old girl losing her only parent to the war is particularly poignant, and...

    I just got of the air from broadcasting on "American Breakfast" with Ellen Ratner. Recall that she is the one who said on Neil Cavuto's Show on Fox that she "hoped" that President Bush would "mess up the war," so he "would not be reelected." In short, she wants enough Americans to be killed in Iraq to cause the President to be defeated in 2004. She told me, live on air three minutes ago, that "Fox News has just renewed [her] contract." Fox News had an ideal opportunity to get rid of this politically-bigoted and hateful "reporter" by not renewing...
