    On New Year’s Day in 1988, Abdullah Ali, an Iraqi businessman who had been living in London for eight years, joined three compatriots for dinner at a restaurant called Cleopatra in Notting Hill.The next morning, he was taken ill with flu-like symptoms and was admitted to hospital. There his condition rapidly deteriorated — his hair fell out, he developed excruciating skin and joint pain, and paralysis and respiratory failure began to set in. Fifteen days later he was dead — but not before he had begun to wonder whether something had been added to his vodka. He was right: the...

    Get out your box of aloe vera-enriched, three-ply Kleenex tissues. The bleeding-heart defense team for convicted al-Qaida terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui wants to tell you a sob story. Like so many apologists for jihad, Moussaoui's lawyers are playing the victim card on behalf of a murder-minded thug who just can't wait to die for Allah. Last April, Moussaoui pleaded guilty to six charges of conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism, conspiracy to commit aircraft piracy, conspiracy to destroy aircraft, conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction, conspiracy to murder government employees and conspiracy to destroy property. Throughout the sentencing phase of...

    New Orleans, La. -- Today, after learning that New Orleans plans to poison rats living in the city as part of its "Rat Busters" program, PETA fired off a letter to Mayor Ray Nagin urging him to work with PETA to develop a humane, effective program to permanently reduce the rat population instead. PETA points out that poisoning rats is not only cruel but also ineffective. Rats from surrounding areas will simply move in to fill the void left by those who were killed, and as long as habitats such as abandoned buildings and food sources such as garbage are...

    “We’ve seen reports coming in from all around the country that animals that were eating the contaminated foods are definitely suffering from renal failure,” said Dr. Steven Hansen, veterinary toxicologist and senior vice president with the ASPCA, who manages the ASPCA’s Midwest Office, including the APCC. “But the data that we’ve been collecting do not conclusively prove this connection, which is why we strongly recommend that those involved in the investigation continue to search for additional contaminants.”

    Over the weekend, a story broke from Iraq describing a mysterious illness that affected hundreds of policemen from a unit in Iraq. The symptoms were unusual in the sense that they were not consistent with what would be expected from the use of a biological or chemical weapon. They were consistent, however, with the symptoms of ingesting rat poison, discussed here, and on this thread at GCP. Interestingly enough, a similar substance was found to be the contaminant of a Danish water reservoir, during a routine check. A vial labeled rat poison found in the bottom of the well has...

    GREVE, Denmark, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- Inspectors discovered strychnine in the water supply of a Danish town during a routine check. Investigators believe that someone dumped rat poison in one of the wells that provides water for Greve Municipality outside Copenhagen, the Copenhagen Post reported. The well's Plexiglass cover was smashed open. A vial labeled rat poison found in the bottom of the well has been traced to the pharmacy where it originated, investigators told the Post. "The episode worries me, because you think, what'll it be next," Erik Jurlander, a manager at Greve Waterworks told the newspaper Politiken. "We...

    Democratic Web loggers are so upset by that ABC 9/11 movie that they've planned an Internet attack — known as a Google Bomb — to make sure their view of the film dominates the Web. Activists on Democratic-Underground.com have urged every Democratic blogger to post identical entries after the movie airs, all featuring the film's title, so that any Internet search for the movie will turn up a liberal blog highlighting what they say are multiple inaccuracies in the film. If the plan works, bloggers say they'll be prepared to utilize the technique "at every turn" between now and November.

    LAKEVIEW, Ore. (AP) - A 13-year-old girl convicted of attempting to kill two classmates by slipping rat poison into their milk was sentenced to up to 12 years in a juvenile detention center. Holley Sweeney was ordered Friday to remain at the Hillcrest Girls' School in Salem until she is 25 with early release possible if she responds to treatment, the judge ruled. Earlier this month, the judge found the Lakeview girl and her friend, Stephanie Quesnoy, 12, guilty of plotting and executing a plan to kill two classmates they disliked. Quesnoy is to be sentenced May 22. The girls...

    For America's number one liberal blogger politics is like sports: It's all about winning. I hate Washington,” says Markos Moulitsas Zuniga. Many people, of course, say that they hate Washington. Jay Leno says so. So do Rush Limbaugh and Monica Lewinsky. But Moulitsas, who is the world's biggest political blogger, says it differently, with a freshly arrived-at and deeply felt zeal, as if he himself has discovered the place and its pathologies anew. When Moulitsas says Washington, he's not talking about Bush's Washington with its pitched partisan camps and pay-to-play ethos. He's talking about Democratic Washington: the liberal Ivy League...

    Lt. Gen. Michael P. DeLong, USMC, has rebuffed Sen. Kerry, along with Ret. General Tommy Franks early this week, saying that resources were not diverted when Operation Iraqi Freedom began in March of 2003. He said it was his responsibility to watch Afghanistan and the Horn of Africa. Before the war began, as recounted by general Delong and General Franks, President Bush asked them if they were ready. He [DeLong] said yes. He also said that Iraqi WMD were moved into Syria before the war started. He said that President Bush was "..in Charge and Focused" on the job at...

How about we FReepers stop by Ann's page and show these merry pranksters just what a good old-fashioned FReep, is?
