    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former New York mayor and presidential hopeful Rudolph Giuliani gained fame for his performance after the September 11 attacks, but charges that he also made serious blunders could give ammunition to rival candidates. Giuliani, a Republican, has all but formally declared his candidacy and polls show he is a strong contender, largely because of his steely and comforting leadership that day in 2001. But Giuliani also made mistakes in handling the city's emergency services that may have cost lives, say the co-authors of the 2006 book "Grand Illusion: The Untold Story of Rudy Giuliani and 9/11."...

    CUSTOMERS of the internet auction site eBay are being defrauded by unscrupulous dealers who secretly bid up the price of items on sale to boost profits. An investigation by The Sunday Times has indicated that the practice of artificially driving up prices — known as shill bidding — is widespread across the site. Last week one of the UK’s biggest eBay sellers admitted in a taped conversation with an undercover reporter that he was prepared to use business associates to bid on his goods for him. Our inquiries found evidence that a number of businesses — ranging from overseas property...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 10, 2007 – A new law that took effect Jan. 1 changes the way the remains of servicemembers killed in combat are transported and handled. The 2007 National Defense Authorization Act states that the primary mode of transportation for remains of servicemembers being returned to the U.S. is military aircraft or military-contracted aircraft. This is a change from the past, when commercial service was used to transport the remains of fallen troops. “It was a provision in the law, and I think … there was some interest to make sure that the remains were moved in an...

    Concerns over the sensitivities of Muslims have once again taken members of the American media – even its government – over the top. Some in the media have decided that Islam should be treated differently from other world religions, and some in American government are spending too much time worrying about Muslim sensitivities, as opposed to concentrating on crushing the Islamist enemy. An article published in the Washington Post on Tuesday, May 17 highlights examples of the mistakes being made by the media as well as in government. Robin Wright, author of the Post’s article, “U.S. Long Had Memo on...

    Some advice for Kerry on handling his kooky crew Imagine you were, say, the Democratic candidate for president. You’d like to have a good week leading up to your party’s convention. So you would probably rather not: (A) See one of your top advisers be caught in a criminal investigation, accused of improperly taking highly classified documents relating to the Sept. 11 commission’s investigation. (B) See another of your advisers exposed by two high-level investigating committees as having made false statements concerning Saddam Hussein’s nuclear ambitions and African uranium. (C) See one of your closest friends and surrogates go ballistic...

    Democrats turn on Bush over handling of national security By Andrew Gumbel in Los Angeles 19 May 2003 Democratic contenders for next year's presidential election made their first spirited attack on George W Bush over the weekend on the issue widely regarded within the United States as his greatest strength – his handling of national security and the so-called "war on terrorism". With bombs attributed to a revived al-Qa'ida wreaking havoc in Saudi Arabia and Morocco, the candidates sensed a vulnerability in the White House strategy and hammered the president for failing to find Osama bin Laden, for failing to...
