    Monday, 21 July, 2003, 10:01 GMT 11:01 UK Inside the mind of Kim Jong-ilKim Jong-il (r) was not expected to succeed his father Film-maker, artist, playboy, ruthless leader - who is the real Kim Jong-il? BBC Two's Correspondent programme spoke to those once close to him to find out. North Korean President Kim Jong-il, widely regarded as the world's most dangerous man, was dubbed "Dr Evil" by Newsweek magazine in January this year. The reference was to a fictitious Hollywood film character who plots to destroy the planet, in the style of a James Bond villain. When it comes...

    Rent-A-Car job does a body good By Becky Orr Published in the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle CHEYENNE – When Malen Powell’s day begins at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, he has the same enthusiasm for his work that he had when he started 10 years ago. Powell washes and vacuums rental cars. He picks up people from their homes or from car dealerships who rent vehicles from the company. Powell also travels to neighboring states to pick up cars. At 81, he has reached a point where he does not have to work. But having a part-time job is a way to stay healthy, he...

    Moment Anything But Conventional His wife, Barbara, didn't want him to drive to Ground Zero from Baldwin three days after the attack, nor did his children. "Dad," they said, "you're too old." But Bob Beckwith, then 69, put on his firefighter's helmet, talked his way past police and the National Guard and joined rescue workers looking for survivors. By midafternoon, he found a damaged fire pumper and climbed on top. "Then this guy asked me if it was safe where I was standing. 'Sure,' I told him." "Jump up and down for me," the man said, seeking proof of Beckwith's...

    Sydney Morning Herald ^ | January 02 2003 | AP
    Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was an intelligent but misguided zealot who sincerely believed he had been called by God, according to a secret profile compiled 30 years ago by the British government. The document, released today by the Public Records Office, was compiled in June 1972 by the British Embassy in Tripoli. The confidential briefing note said "strict principles" underpinned Gaddafi's leadership, but added there was still "crazy logic" in what he did and said. "His logic is not of course ours, nor at this post do we believe that it is the logic of most Arabs or of their...

    Enhanced national prestige and additional federal funding for transportation, health care, scientific research and the environment are some of the gains Tennessee will reap if Sen. Bill Frist is appointed Senate majority leader, state politicians and pundits say. Frist has gathered more than enough support for the position, with at least 32 of 51 GOP senators lined up behind him. The Republican senators are expected to hold a conference call tomorrow to appoint Frist majority leader, rather than hold a vote on Jan. 6 as originally planned. A spokesman for Frist said the senator would not speak publicly about the...

    This is a vanity I'm posting to salute bluecollarman. We've all watched the idiot profilers for the last couple of weeks, mostly fingering a 30-ish crazy white male militia member as the likely perp. Well, way back on 10/8, FReeper bluecollarman just nailed the profile of the perp. Here's a portion of his post (linked above), from 10/8! Okay here is my conclusion , For what it's worth,  which is not much. A Single Shooter, Dark Skin  or Black Man, 20-30, Muslim with US Military Training with M-16, probably Marine. Maybe hired or just pissed off. Since this is my...

    Fred Foldvary's Editorial The Government's War on Bumper Stickers by Fred E. Foldvary, Senior Editor Watch out, your bumper sticker may cost you a traffic ticket! The FreeRupublic.com forum in March 27 reported that police officers are looking out for "extremist" bumper stickers. The December 1999 issue of the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin has provided guidelines to the police when they conduct a traffic stop. The bulletin tells the police that suspected members of extremist groups may reveal their affiliations by the vehicles they drive. An obvious clue to the driver's viewpoint is the bumper stickers on the car....

    Local psychologist believes sniper kills done by terrorists By J.J. Stambaugh, News-Sentinel staff writer October 15, 2002 The recent sniper shootings in the Washington, D.C., area are probably terrorist attacks rather than the work of a traditional "spree killer," according to a local psychologist who specializes in violent behavior. Dr. Helen Smith, a forensic psychologist and author of the book "The Scarred Heart," earned her doctorate from the University of Tennessee in 1994. She often is called to testify as an expert witness in Juvenile Court proceedings; in "The Scarred Heart," she dedicated a chapter to the 1997 Lillelid murder...

    Profilers: Montgomery County Shooters are Likely From Area Whoever killed five people with single shots in Montgomery County is probably a white man in his 20s or early 30s who lives nearby, two former FBI profilers said Thursday. The shooter and an accomplice likely dumped the white truck police were looking for Thursday night, the experts said. "That vehicle will be in a garage or a lake," said Clinton Van Zandt, a former FBI agent. Both Van Zandt and another former profiler, Robert K. Ressler, said it's unlikely that one person carried out the killings. They said one person...
  • "Profiling" Test (screeners dare not "discriminate" or "profile")

    To ensure we Americans never offend anyone - - - particularly fanatics intent on killing us - airport screeners will not be allowed to profile people. They will continue random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, Secret Service agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning former Governors.Let us pause a moment and take the following test. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by: (a) Olga Korbut (b) Mark Spitz (c) Arnold Schwartzenegger (d) Muslim male extremists mostly...

    I have been fingerprinted and racially profiled. As we wrestle with ways to prevent another September 11, I remember both incidents well. I was fingerprinted when I lived in Japan. As a foreigner living there, I had to make my way to the police station to get my gaijin (foreigner) card. I filled out a form, had my picture taken and was fingerprinted. One of the fingerprints appeared on the card and very occasionally I had to show the card to police, but only very occasionally. "Don't lose it," I was warned, "and make sure you hand it back in...

    LOOK FOR TERRORIST, NOT WEAPONS Folks, an Israeli expert on the airline security subject said that the basic difference between the way Israelis and Americans screen passengers is that the Israelis look for terrorists, and the Americans look for weapons. He said we're focusing on the wrong thing - but that means we have to look for Muslim-Arab men, and once you start doing that, then all sorts of grief descends upon you as a racial profiler. You've heard stories about nuns being pulled out of lines while waiting to go through a metal detector because there's "suspicion" she might...

    Posted on Wed, Apr. 03, 2002 Financial companies to discuss how to use consumer databases to profile terrorists WASHINGTON (AP) - Top financial companies are working to figure out how to use public and private consumer databases to catch possible terrorists and whether the information banks are up to the task. The group, holding its first organizational meeting today, will explore how to use credit reports, marketing databases and other information for domestic security. ``We have to think about how to use information to create profiles about what a bad guy might look like,'' said Marty Abrams of the Center...

    It would be a great help if more FReepers would fill out their profile page. Come on now; some of you have been here for years and have not so much as a state flag flying. You don't need to tell your life story, but at least a state or national flag would help. For instance, I know there's more Wisconsin FReepers out there than are on the WI location page. How can anyone alert you to the upcoming (state) FReeper event UNLESS your screen name is on the (state) page?
