    Saddam's bolt-hole has to go, say Americans By Jack Fairweather in Baghdad (Filed: 26/01/2004) Iraqis have reacted with a mixture of bemusement and annoyance to plans by the US military to fill in the spider hole where Saddam Hussein was captured. The spot marking Saddam's humiliating seizure has been guarded round the clock by American troops since the former dictator surrendered without a fight in December. It was the second time he had hidden at the farmhouse in the village of ad Dawr, on the outskirts of Tikrit - the first was in 1959 after a botched assassination attempt on...

    You're hardwired to go mad October 23 2003 at 10:30AM Washington - American and Japanese researchers said on Thursday that they had found a genetic mutation that causes obsessive-compulsive disorder and other mental illnesses and said some patients had a second mutation that made their conditions worse. The rare finding could make it easier to discover better treatments for the disorder, one of the top 10 leading causes of disability worldwide. Dr Norio Ozaki of Fujita Health University School of Medicine in Japan and colleagues at several American institutions - including the University of Pittsburgh and Yale University - worked...

    A Staten Island teacher who pleaded guilty to felony drug possession can return to the classroom if he completes a drug treatment program, an arbitrator has ruled. Michael Campbell, a dean and eighth-grade teacher at Intermediate School 72, can keep his job even though he was arrested in April 2002 for cocaine and marijuana possession, according to a decision made public yesterday. A spokesman for Schools Chancellor Joel Klein said the system would fight to keep Campbell out of the classroom. "This is another example of arbitrators blocking the department's efforts to remove people who are not fit to be...

    Kurds go it alone with international oil dealsLocal authorities ignore US administration and seek to lure major companies with generous contracts Andrew Buncombe in Washington Kurdish authorities in northern Iraq are offering hugely lucrative oil deals to European and American companies without consulting either the US administration in Baghdad or any other Iraqi groups.

The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), which controls the Sulaymaniyah region as part of the regional government of Kurdish Iraq, has in recent weeks started seeking investment from international companies...

    Lott's office | November/January Majority
    Official word from Trent Lott's office - maybe you all knew this already. The Republican leadership has made a decision that they will not take control of committee chairmanships until after the lame duck session, even if Talent is confirmed giving the Republicans Majority status next week as expected. At first the person in Lott's office that I spoke to said they "can't" take the committee chairmanships until January. I pressed her on the meaning of can't, and she said that actually they could take the chairmanships but that a decision has been made by the Republican leadership not to....

  • Help for Arafat from the UN?

    Just a thoughtYassir Arafat, the great peacemaker of Palestine, has asked for help from the UN. He's mad about being held up in his HQ and wants to be given the "respect" he deserves as the "leader" of Palestine. But I'm not sure if really wants UN help after he hears this. Sure it was mainly Dutch peacekeepers. But when you add the failure of actions in Kosovo, Rwanda, Somalia, Indonesia etc. And the lack of any action in incidents like Cyprus, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Panama, etc. I wouldn't think that anybody would want "protection" from these morons. Would...
