  • Have War Critics Even Read the Duelfer Report? The Saddam regime was an imminent threat

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 14, 2004 | RICHARD SPERTZEL
    After the release of the Iraq Survey Group's Duelfer report, the headlines blazed "No WMD Found." ...This reflects the notion that Iraq was only a threat if it had military munitions filled with WMD. The claim "Iraq was not an imminent threat" was also expounded by pundits that seemingly crawled out of the woodwork as well as those opposed to President Bush. But have these individuals read carefully the report...? While no facilities were found producing chemical or biological agents on a large scale, many clandestine laboratories operating under the Iraqi Intelligence Services were found to be engaged in small-scale...

    Original Headline: Putin could have poisoned Hillary says world renowned doctor who exposed NFL concussion crisis and was played by Will Smith in Hollywood movie A world-renowned doctor has made the far-fetched suggestion Russia's President Vladimir Putin could be responsible for poisoning Hillary Clinton, who was diagnosed earlier this week with pneumonia. The 68-year-old Democratic candidate for the White House collapsed into the arms of her Secret Service agents on Sunday after being rushed from the 9/11 memorial service at the World Trade Centre. Dr Bennet Omalu, the doctor who exposed the NFL concussion crisis, tweeted: 'I must advice (sic)...

    Bennet Omalu, the forensic pathologist who has made the NFL so uncomfortable with his discovery of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in the brains of deceased players, suggests that Hillary Clinton’s campaign be checked for possible poisons after her collapse Sunday in New York. Omalu, whose story was famously told in the movie “Concussion,” made the suggestion on Twitter, writing that he advised campaign officials to “perform toxicologic analysis of Ms. Clinton’s blood.”

Intelligence officials say the detainee, Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi, a member of Osama bin Laden's inner circle, recanted the claims sometime last year, but not before they had become the basis of statements by President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Colin L.

Information gained from the interrogation of al-Libi was cited on several occasions by the Bush administration as justification for the war in Iraq. He told his CIA interrogators that al-Qaeda had sent two men to Iraq to seek training in chemical and biological weapons in December 2000. Classified documents added that the men did not return, so al-Libi did not know whether the training took place, and that, in any case, he was probably "intentionally...

    Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas attempted to walk back controversial statements made during a recent address to the European Union parliament in Brussels, claiming on Saturday that he opposed "any attack on any religion", after having accused Israel of “poisoning Palestinian wells”. "Palestine is the cradle of the three monotheistic faiths. We stand strongly against any attack on any religion," Abbas said in a statement. The tacit acknowledgement of Judaism's roots in the Land of Israel, comes in stark contrast to Palestinian Authority propaganda which has for decades attempted to diminish the Jewish people's ancient history in Israel.

The incident took place on Monday evening, Dec.14, in the community of Bonneuil-sur-Marne. Women arrived at the closed shul at around 9:00 p.m. to participate in a meeting. Ralph Botbol, president of the synagogue, said that just after arrival, two women began experiencing itchy hands, and one woman's face "swelled significantly." Several more congregants began experiencing intense burning sensations in their eyes and itchy rashes on their skin, at which time emergency services were called. More than a dozen...

If this is the new standard, why not just scrap the list entirely? The lifting of Cuba from the list of nations that support terrorism was a farce that may well come back to the haunt the United States. After all, the ruling Castro regime that benefits from it in the name of normal relations with the U.S. and new access to World Bank loans is the same regime that once tried the first 9/11, aligning itself...

That second companion bill, Jost says, specifically provided for exchanges run by the federal government in states that do not have their own. Just as important, he says, the Congressional Budget Office analyses presume subsidies to customers in all 50 states — proof that Congress always intended to provide assistance to income-eligible consumers whether or not their states opened exchanges.

    Scientists discover ‘deadliest substance known to man’ By 15, 2013 | 1:34pm Scientists have discovered a new type of botox they believe is the “deadliest substance known to man” and have withheld the DNA sequence because an antidote is not known.

    The left is in a frenzy over the American agricultural biotechnology corporation Monsanto and other agribusinesses that tinker with crop genetics. Is there any truth to their scare stories asserting that we’re being poisoned with “Frankenfood,” breeding new strains of superbugs and superpests?

The FDA has approved their use. Today, 70-80 percent of grocery products in the U.S. include genetically engineered ingredients. In contrast, only 5 percent of the food...

I try to calm them down, but I'm very worried myself... it was the first time she was seriously worried about food contamination since the U.S.-led invasion of neighboring Iraq made Syrians fear contamination of imported food...
