    House Republicans sought a showdown Friday with Democrats on a proposal by one of their most senior members to force an end to the U.S. deployment of troops in Iraq. Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., offered the resolution demanding a pullout. The GOP-run House was expected to reject it _ and make a prominent statement about where Congress stands on Iraq _ as the chamber scurried toward a Thanksgiving break. "We'll let the members debate it and then let them vote on it," said Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., the acting majority leader. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's office had no immediate...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald said he will have to bring more information before a new grand jury in the CIA leak probe, adding that his work is not complete. In a new court filing, Fitzgerald said sensitive information from his investigation still needs to be protected, especially since proceedings will involve a different jury than the one that indicted former Lewis Libby, chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney. The panel hearing that part of the inquiry expired that day. Fitzgerald does not say that new charges definitely will be brought. Instead, the filing discusses what...

    E-RFD: New Elementary Particle Discovered A major research institution has recently announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element has been named "Governmentium." Governmentium (Gv) has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by force particles called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of orbiting peons. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert.. However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction within its field range, which like gravity is unlimited but...

The crew had gone out to explore areas along the border with two guides unrelated to the Minuteman activities. The driver of a...

As anyone who has spent many years in the military, special operations and counterterrorism field will tell you, when you get the feeling that it has been just too quiet for just too long, it means something bad is in the works. Thing is, with so target-rich an environment and with our decentralized enemy being in 90 countries or so, when your instinct is telling you something bad is afoot, sometimes you just can’t tell where an attack is about to take place.

    BELFAST (Reuters) - The IRA admitted on Friday to the 1973 killing of a teenage girl that it had blamed on the British army and apologised to her family who had called on the paramilitaries to accept responsibility. Kathleen Feeney was shot dead near her home in Londonderry. At the time, the IRA, which put its violent, 30-year campaign against British rule on hold in 1997, blamed British soldiers for the 14-year-old's murder. "We wish to apologise unreservedly to the Feeney family for the death of Kathleen and all the grief that our actions have caused to them," the IRA...

    A White House official said Friday the administration finds it "somewhat puzzling" that Democrats are demanding presidential adviser Karl Rove's apology or resignation for implying that liberals are soft on terrorism. "I think Karl was very specific, very accurate, in who he was pointing out," communications director Dan Bartlett said. "It's touched a chord with these Democrats. I'm not sure why." Congressional Republicans earlier joined the White House in standing solidly behind Rove, saying he shouldn't apologize and that he was outlining a philosophical divide between a president who sought to win the war on terrorism by taking the fight...

Rick Perry already has a $7.9 million campaign war chest heading into his 2006 re-election bid, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram said Friday. He may need it.

    BEIJING/TAIPEI (Reuters) - China's military will crush any major moves toward independence by Taiwan, a Beijing government policy paper said on Monday, prompting the self-governing island to accuse Beijing of escalating tensions. The defense paper was released as senior Chinese lawmakers discussed a draft anti-secession law that analysts say may legally bind China to take military action if the island it claims as a renegade province declares statehood. "Should the Taiwan authorities go so far as to make a reckless attempt that constitutes a major incident of 'Taiwan independence', the Chinese people and armed forces will resolutely and thoroughly crush...

    The 2004 GOP Nominee must be Pro-Life. I love Rudy Giuliani. Worked for him in fact. He’s brilliant & is the only “pro-choice” candidate I’d consider voting for. But the pro-life vote won the election for W. The media won’t say it. They’ll talk vaguely about “values”. Evangelicals won’t come out for a pro-choice candidate. The “moderate” Republicans need to get this message as well. They would have blamed a loss on evangelicals for not voting if W had lost. Will they remember this in 2008 and back a pro-life candidate?

    WITH A month and a half to go Kerry has belatedly come out swinging at Bush, especially over the disastrous war in Iraq. But it's not clear those attacks will bring positive results. The following are 10 reasons why Bush is likely to win, 10 reasons why Kerry might yet pull off an upset. The lists are hardly comprehensive. But they do hint at what are and aren't ­ despite mainstream U.S. media obsessions ­ the real issues in the race. WHY BUSH IS LIKELY TO WIN 1. Vice-President Dick Cheney. Right up until the Republican convention it was speculated...

    There are growing indications that Iran may be planning an attack on American soil. These indicators are not secret — they appear in speeches, newspaper articles, TV programs, and sermons in Iran by figures linked to the supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and other government officials, all discussing potential Iranian attacks on America, which will subsequently lead to its destruction.

    Teresa Heinz Kerry, encouraging volunteers as they busily packed supplies Wednesday for hurricane relief efforts in the Caribbean, said she was concerned the effort was too focused on sending clothes instead of essentials like water and electric generators. "Clothing is wonderful, but let them go naked for a while, at least the kids," said Heinz Kerry, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry

  • Iraq war illegal, says Kofi Annan

    The United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan has told the BBC the US-led invasion of Iraq was an illegal act that contravened the UN charter. He said the decision to take action in Iraq should have been made by the Security Council, not unilaterally. The UK government responded by saying the attorney-general made the "legal basis... clear at the time". Mr Annan also warned security in Iraq must considerably improve if credible elections are to be held in January. The UN chief said in an interview with the BBC World Service that "painful lessons" had been learnt since the war in...

    I'm a hard numbers kind of guy. I follow the state polls every evening after I get home from work, and there's a disturbing trend developing right now: most projections give Kerry a pretty good position in the electoral college. ======================= Here are a few sites of electoral projections: http://www.electoral-vote.com http://www.dalythoughts.com/ecb.htm http://www.electionprojection.com/elections2004.html http://www.federalreview.com/ http://www.spacerad.com/electoral/ http://synapse.princeton.edu/~sam/pollcalc.html http://www.race2004.net/ ==================== There are a handful of states that I'm really concerned about. Bush should NOT be worrying about these states!!! Bush should be waltzing through these and focusing on Ohio and Florida! Nevada: Rasmussen's latest poll gives Bush a 1% lead. What's less-often reported...

    The book appears to be meticulously researched and reported. It is replete with copious footnotes, a detailed index and two appendices. First-hand witnesses are named and quoted verbatim to support each specific, shocking charge. Each charge of false heroics is logically presented. Theauthors quote the official Navy citation and then present the purported eyewitnesstestimony that refutes the official finding. The witnesses who are summoned forth are officers and men who served simultaneously with Mr. Kerry in Coastal Division 11 and purport to be eyewitnesses to the events in question. And yet, there is another group of men, the sailors who...
