    New information is emerging about efforts by major Democratic Party figures to undercut American war efforts in Iraq by providing aid to the insurgents. Lt. Col. Buzz Patterson's article Treason in America details how a coalition of radical organizations, including US-based Code Pink, delivered some $600,000 in cash and supplies to insurgents and their families in Fallujah, just days after 51 American troops were killed there in some of the bloodiest action of the Iraq war. An approving article published in Islam Online tipped off the connection between the anti-American Global Exchange coalition and the Democrats who made their venture...

    BAGHDAD — The U.S. military says a gunman wearing an Iraqi army uniform has killed two American soldiers in northern Iraq. A military statement says the Americans were among a group of U.S. soldiers meeting with Iraqi security forces Tuesday at an Iraqi army compound near the city of Tuz Khormato, about 130 miles (210 kilometres) north of Baghdad.

    Did the Obama administration, by releasing Qais and Laith Qazali and more than 100 members of the Iranian-backed Asaib al Haq, violate an executive order put in place by President Ronald Reagan to prevent negotiations with hostage takers? Senators Jeff Sessions and Jon Kyl asked that very question to the Obama administration in a letter sent to the president in July. The full text of the letter is below, or you can read the signed letter here in PDF form. According to a congressional staffer, the Obama administration has yet to answer the letter. The body of the letter by...

    Last year Zbigniew Brzezinski, adviser to former US president Jimmy Carter, described the Bush administration's policy of maintaining the option of military action against Iran as "counterproductive." Now Brzezinski, who advises Obama on foreign policy, is calling for the US to shoot down Israeli jets. Brzezinski is known to be anti-Israel. The Weekly Standard Blog reported: In a little noticed interview with the Daily Beast (presumably little noticed because serious people don't read the Daily Beast), Zbigniew Brzezinski suggests that Barack Obama do more than just refuse to support an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear sites -- the American president...

    THE Democratic dog just caught the Iraqi firetruck it's been chasing for almost four years. Now what? Wetting the back tires won't be enough. The victorious party's hard-left wing is anxious for an American humiliation. But that's not what the majority of Democrats want and it's a scenario that Dems on Capitol Hill, eyes on 2008, know they need to avoid. Most Dem leaders realize that, with just a few missteps, Iraq could become their debacle. Their problem is that they never formulated a serious plan for Iraq. All rhetoric and no specifics, they just ran against the administration's bungling....

(I've already done a live shot on Fox News, and given interviews for John Gibson's show and "Inside Edition," which should air later today.) **UPDATE The MSM catches up. Even CNN is reporting Troops respond to 'Jon Carry' with plea for 'halp'; while CBS is reporting "Minnesota Guard Members Mock Kerry In 'Irak' Photo", The AP has put a story on the wire, and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune is also catching up: The photo initially was posted on the website of Milwaukee talk radio...

    It has been a disastrous week for the US military in Iraq, which has suffered its highest weekly casualty rate for nearly two years. But even that is insignificant when compared with the number of civilians who are being killed in an increasingly vengeful sectarian conflict. This is a snapshot of life for two people in one Baghdad neighbourhood. Before I introduce you to the baker and the barber though, a little background... They both work in Karrada which sits on the east bank of the river Tigris. It is one of the wealthier parts of the city and right...

    While Moqtada al-Sadr has moderated his aggressiveness somewhat by virtue of his participation in parliament, many of his followers have not. According to coalition officials, sections of the Mahdi Army have splintered off and have formed freelance gangs that are engaged in sectarian revenge killings and criminal activity to finance their operations. Coalition officials have also hinted that these breakaway elements are receiving sponsorship and funding from Iran. It has been especially difficult for al-Sadr to control his followers in Basra. Basra, a majority Shiite province, is flooded with various Shiite political parties with changing loyalties and compositions. Al-Sadr does...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki vowed that his country will remain resolute in the face of violent sectarianism ripping apart his country, calling Iraq the "front line" in the war against terror. The Iraqi leader cast the ongoing sectarian violence raging across his country as an internecine Islamic religious battle. "This is a battle between two Islams, for which a person's liberty and rights constitute essential cornerstones, and terrorism, which wraps itself in a fake Islamic cloak," he addressing a joint session of the US Congress. "Iraq is the front line in this struggle, and history will...

    BAGHDAD (AFP) - Deposed Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was forced to attend his trial on charges of crimes against humanity and declared that if convicted he would rather be shot than hanged. Appearing vigorous on the 18th day of a hunger strike Wednesday, Saddam was made to appear and hear a court-appointed defence lawyer make the final arguments on his behalf, as his defence team are boycotting the hearings. "Remember that Saddam was a soldier and that therefore, if he is condemned to death, he should be shot and not hanged," Saddam declared, speaking of himself in the third person...

    he families of British soldiers killed in Iraq have won a legal breakthrough in their bid for a full public inquiry into why the UK entered the conflict. The Court of Appeal ruled they were entitled to apply for a judicial review of the government's refusal to hold an independent inquiry. The applicants are relatives of four servicemen who died in military action between 2003 and 2005. Their bid for a judicial review was blocked in the High Court in December.
