  • Arab-Islamic World Is a Hostage of Its Own Delusions

    Anyone who follows the developments in the Arab Islamic world will be struck by the complete absence of self-knowledge and introspection that characterizes these vexed cultures. Almost every problem is attributed to hostile external forces. The poverty and underdevelopment that plague most of the Arab world are the result of malicious machinations of Americans and Jews. This is no less true of the disaster in Darfur. Last week UPI reported that the Sudanese foreign minister Mustafa Osman Ismail had told journalists in Cairo that his government possessed "information that confirms media reports of Israeli support (for the rebels in Darfur)."...

    When I think of spies in the Defense Department, I think of the pitiful debt-ridden Ron Pelton, who worked for 14 years at the National Security Agency, quit in 1979, and began selling secrets to the Soviets until he was arrested in 1986. I heard it was to complete construction on a home he had been building for years and years. Construction projects can be like that

    The cigar seemed to be the same as any other. These was a rush of hot smoke, but it was followed by a familiar, yet disturbing sweetness. It was like setting fire to a packet of grape Kool-Aid and taking a deep breath. Not an experience most people would remember fondly. But candy-flavored cigars, like the grape one I bought at a neighborhood grocery store, have become the hippest thing to hit the streets since neck tattoos and color-coordinated cell phones. The experience, said a crowd of teenage boys and girls gathered on the corner near the store, is far...

    Sen. John Kerry made his first forays into Cambodia during the Vietnam War as a Navy lieutenant on clandestine missions to deliver weapons to anticommunist forces. When he returned last week, the mission was official, but dicey nonetheless. At the request of the United Nations, Kerry is trying to broker a compromise on how to try leaders of the former Khmer Rouge regime, whose late 1970s reign of terror claimed the lives of some 1.7 million Cambodians. Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen wants to control any court looking into genocide charges, but U.S. and U.N. officials have demanded an international...

    BOSTON - John Kerry bounced the ceremonial first pitch during last night's Red Sox-Yankees game at Fenway Park, but he said he was just going easy on the National Guard soldier and Iraq war veteran standing in as catcher. "I held back," Mr. Kerry told reporters early this morning, on the plane ride after the game. "He was very nervous. I tried to lob it gently."

    IT IS THE prerogative of former presidents to write self-serving memoirs casting themselves in heroic terms. We don't begrudge Bill Clinton, who presided over an administration of significant accomplishments in many areas, a book-length (or even a two-book-length) highlighting of the ups, and a breezing-over of the downs, of his presidency. Yet Mr. Clinton's new book, "My Life," is also part of a long effort on its author's part to deny, and not just breeze over, his profound disrespect for the law when it inconvenienced him. In Mr. Clinton's alternate universe, in which many Democrats have also decided to live,...

    Baghdad – Saddam Hussein failed to anticipate the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, and even after hostilities had started, deluded himself that he was winning the war and could clinch a negotiated settlement through French and Russian mediation. According to newly uncovered secret documents, the former Iraqi regime never contemplated its imminent defeat and continued to function normally under Saddam's direct control, even as American tanks were closing in on Baghdad. While much has been made about intelligence failures in the West, it seems that Saddam's own senior officials, diplomats and spies offered him such a warped vision of the outside...

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America has selected Pastor Ignacio Castuera to fill the newly created position and communicate "the theological justification for choice, sexuality, and contraception." Castuera serves as pastor at St. John's United Methodist Church in Los Angeles, California, and has been a...

    the quote from Hotline is in the "Full Story" below. Why Senate Dems :: "At the beginning of the current Congress a year ago, there was a lot of skepticism that we could take back the Senate in 2004. We heard it not just from our friends in Labor, political pundits and donors, but also among ourselves." A Democratic majority in '04 seemed "out of reach. Bush was strong, our presidential prospects were uncertain and our Senate candidates unknown." Bush and Karl Rove envisioned their "Dream Team" of Senate recruits, including: Jennifer Dunn in WA; Mike Huckabee in AR; Ed...

    War, by its very nature, does not make much sense. In recent days, though, the war in Iraq — and how it began — is sounding more and more like something out of "Alice in Wonderland." You think of the White Rabbit that started Alice down the slippery slope into Wonderland. And the Mad Hatter's tea party. And the Red Queen screaming "Off with their heads!" And then you think of David Kay, the former chief arms inspector, telling a Senate committee last week that "we were all wrong" and that somebody should look into how our pre-war intelligence came...
  • Saddam's weapons of mass delusion

    The chief inspector who led the U.S. search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq is offering a terrifying view of the last days of Saddam Hussein that confirms the wisdom of deposing a dictator who had descended into madness. David Kay leaves a post that gave him an up-close and personal look into Saddam's mind and arsenals, saying he believes Iraq did not have nuclear, chemical or biological weapons before America's invasion - but not for a lack of trying. Indeed, Kay says, Saddam was perfecting a weaponized version of the deadly poison ricin and trying to restart a...

    Mexican-American separatists don't believe U.S. has Saddam A Mexican-American separatist website, La Voz de Aztlan, is claiming the U.S. capture of Saddam Hussein is a hoax. The pro-Arab and viciously anti-Israeli organization also sees a spontaneous uprising of popular support for Hussein throughout Iraq – a phenomenon unnoticed by news organizations throughout the world, including those in Arab countries. According to the site, "extreme doubts have arisen throughout Islam that the released pictures by U.S. occupation forces of the 'captured Saddam' are of the Iraqi leader. Thousands of Iraqis, who knew Saddam, are claiming that it is one of Saddam's...

    The more Howard Dean seems to be the democrats nominee for President the worse is the delusional state of democrats gets. The democrats do not want Howard Dean to be the nominee because deep in themselves they know he cannot beat President Bus in 2004. He is very liberal and far to the left on the vast majority of important issues. Therefore to save the face, the democrat pundits have begun a new delusional spin about Dean issue. In the last few days some really desperate democrats are going on TV and radio telling us that the other democrat candidates...
