    Online conservative media mogul Andrew Breitbart announced Thursday that he is launching a new website in January designed to report its own original journalism and take on “the Democratic-media complex.” The site – to be called Big Journalism – builds on the “Big” brand Breitbart launched in September with Big Hollywood and Big Government. Both sites have made waves with stories exposing past controversial remarks by Obama administration officials and by featuring a series of videos of ACORN officials inappropriately offering advice to two conservative activists dressed up as a pimp and prostitute. He also helps edit the Drudge Report...

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - NASA managers announced Thursday that they would press ahead with the first space shuttle launch of the year next week, three months later than originally planned because of a hail storm that pockmarked the spacecraft's external tank. After a two-day meeting at the Kennedy Space Center, NASA officials agreed to launch Atlantis at 7:38 p.m. EDT June 8 on a mission to deliver a new pair of solar arrays to the international space station. "The team is really pumped to get this done this time," said Mike Leinbach, NASA launch director. "We've been doing three months...

    Syria accuses US of launching lethal raids over its borders By Harry de Quetteville in Baghouz (Filed: 29/10/2005) Syria has accused the United States of launching lethal military raids into its territory from Iraq, escalating the diplomatic crisis between the two countries as the Bush administration seeks to step up pressure on President Bashar Assad's regime. Concern: A Syrian soldier looks across at Iraqi border Major General Amid Suleiman, a Syrian officer, said that American cross-border attacks into Syria had killed at least two border guards, wounded several more and prompted an official complaint to the American embassy in Damascus....
  • Experts Say Iraq Insurgency Has Reduced Terror Threat in West-(when Iraq is stable, they'll return)

    International terrorism experts say the situation in Iraq has diverted the attention of Islamic extremists away from the West. But they believe the threat to the West will resume, once violence in Iraq subsides. International terrorism experts say terror networks are focusing on their fight in Iraq, temporarily reducing the dangers faced by Western countries that have been targets in the past. But Italian Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu, speaking recently to journalists at Rome's foreign press club, say this will change once the situation in Iraq is resolved. "I think we need to need to concern ourselves with a return...
  • Will Washington Support Democracy in Iran?

    02/12/2005 1:49:15 PM PST · by forty_years · 15 replies · 407+ views ^ | February 12, 2005 | Michael Rubin After a first term marked by schizophrenic Iran policy initiatives, the Bush White House will soon develop a coordinated policy to promote peaceful regime change in Iran. The Bush administration is heartened by the apparent success of the Iraqi election and believes that Iranians are ready to exert their democratic rights. Bush policy is motivated by the grave and growing threat from the Islamic Republic's nuclear weapons program, and the realization that neither Iran nor the European Union are sincere in preventing Iran's acquisition of nuclear weaponry. The Islamic Republic's potential threat to American security emanates from Tehran's determination...

    Bill’s library is launching pad for Hillary By DICK MORRIS Syndicated Columnist Last week’s events in Little Rock had less to do with a library retrospective of the Bill Clinton years than a campaign launch for the prospective presidency of Hillary Clinton. Doubt it? Then why was it Hillary, not Bill, who appeared on all the talk shows? It’s his library. But it’s her candidacy. So she did all the softball TV interviews, not him — reminding voters of her availability for 2008 while seeming to talk about the ’90s. The timing is perfect: Democrats demoralized by John Kerry’s defeat...

    Fri Apr 9, 3:50 PM ET LONDON (AFP) - A brand-new British naval ship saw action rather sooner than expected as it shot across a river after being launched and crunched into the opposite bank. The 16,000-tonne amphibious landing vessel was left with a sizeable dent in its stern after grazing a quayside on the north bank of the River Clyde in Glasgow, Scotland, just seconds after it was launched. The incident came two days after it was revealed that eight of the Royal Air Force's Chinook helicopters had been grounded because they were not equipped to fly in cloudy...

    The Environmental Impact Of Licensing New Space Vehicles Washington - Oct 22, 2003 The United States Federal Aviation Administration is currently evaluating four vehicle designs within its Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) process. This process is currently at the Public Scoping stage and the time period for this has been extended to October 31, 2003. The vehicle types under evaluation are grouped based on their proposed launch and landing operations. The launch operations consist of two types, horizontal and vertical launch. The FAA prepared a PEIS for Licensing Launches in 2001 which addressed the impacts of vertically launched vehicles and...
