    As President George W. Bush's top speech writer, Marc Thiessen was provided unique access to the CIA program used in interrogating top Al Qaeda terrorists, including the mastermind of the 9/11 attack, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad (KSM). Now, his riveting new book, "Courting Disaster," How the CIA Kept America Safe (Regnery), has been published. Here is an excerpt from "Courting Disaster:" Just before dawn on March 1, 2003, two dozen heavily armed Pakistani tactical assault forces move in and surround a safe house in Rawalpindi. A few hours earlier they had received a text message from an informant inside the house....

    Anti-government activists are reported to be planning to stage nationwide demonstrations against the ruling al-Khalifa family on 13 -14 February. The protests are reportedly referred to on social networking websites as ‘The 14 February Revolution in Bahrain', and organisers claim they are not associated with any pre-existing political group or movement. The gatherings are likely to focus on government buildings in the capital Manama, such as the interior ministry in the west of the city. Other potential rally venues are Exhibition Road, the Ras Ruman mosque near the Diplomatic Area in the north of the city, the US Fifth Fleet...

    President George W. Bush allegedly snubbed “No Strings Attached” actor Ashton Kutcher at last week’s Super Bowl, reports BBC. Kutcher sat directly behind Bush in a luxury suite at last Sunday’s Super Bowl, but two had minimal interaction with each other. “I don’t think he’s very happy with me,” Kutcher said of Bush. “He just was not very nice to me. He just kind of snubbed me a little bit … [He was] kind of more than [ just ignoring me] … [He was], well, just curt. He just said, ‘eh’ … almost like a burp.” Kutcher said Bush turned...

From Rush Limbaugh: Obama went to Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan, and said: “I just want to say that we are following today’s events in Egypt very closely. We’ll have more to say as this plays out. But what is absolutely clear is that we are witnessing history unfold. The moment of transformation is taking place because the people of Egypt are calling for change. “They’ve turned out in extraordinary numbers representing all ages and all walks of life.

    Commodity prices could squeeze economy, just as in 2008 China's central bank raised interest rates for the third time in four months, and undoubtedly not the last time, to counter the growing inflation that is besetting fast-growing emerging economies. That inflation so far is visible mainly in the price of commodities (presuming rising asset prices are not counted in the calculation.) And based on the Continuous Commodity Index, an equal-weighted gauge of prices, commodities have exceeded their old highs set in 2008 and have set a new record, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch's technical analysis team led by...

    VAWA Is an Excellent Target for Spending Cuts By Phyllis Schlafly 2/1/2011 While the U.S. House is trying to figure out how to cut wasteful and/or extravagant federal spending, members should be mindful of Reagan's advice to begin by cutting programs that are harmful. One that fits this definition is the billion-dollar-a-year Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), now up for re-authorization. This week is the 18th anniversary of an event that precipitated passage of VAWA in 1994. It's known as the Super Bowl Hoax, the assertion made on Jan. 28, 1993, in Pasadena, Calif., with fulsome media coverage, that more...

Big banks accepted substandard loans to package into securities during the buildup to the financial crisis, even though a due-diligence service they hired to examine the loans rejected many of them as “deficient,” according to a crisis fact-finding panel. The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission on Thursday released a widely anticipated report on the causes of the 2008 economic meltdown.
