    Newly released tapes of conversations between the masterminds of the Mumbai terror attacks and their gunmen on the ground reveal callous, remote-control killers who controlled every move the terrorists made. The tapes, which were broadcast on an Indian television news channel, relay a conversation between one of the controllers in Pakistan and a female Jewish hostage in which he reassured her despite having already decided to have her killed. A caller from Pakistan called Wasi spoke to Nurma Shvarzblat Rabinovich, 50, and asked her to call the Israeli consulate in Mumbai to set up negotiations with a senior diplomat.

Within days, her premature girl was located in intensive care at a public hospital, and the woman who had shown up with the baby _ covered in blood and saying she had given birth in a taxi _ was arrested along with four others.

Bush. Just when we were beginning to think Hillary Clinton had found her voice - albeit a decidedly phony one - as a mature, seasoned politician poised for a presidential run, she reverts to those cacophonic utterances that find little resonance beyond her embittered but indispensable base.

"I think that by ignoring the show you're ignoring the audience who put you there," Cowell said Tuesday. Clarkson has become a major star in the past year, with her hit "Since U Been Gone" earning both massive sales and critical respect, particularly from a rock...
