    Col Gaddafi killed: Condoleezza Rice recounts his 'eerie obsession' with her Colonel Muammar Gaddafi had a "slightly eerie obsession" with Condoleezza Rice, describing her as his "African Princess," the ex-US secretary of state said in an excerpt from her memoirs published on Thursday. 12:53AM BST 21 Oct 2011 The late Libyan leader met Ms Rice in the oil-rich north African country in September 2008, a historic meeting that signalled the once pariah state's return to the diplomatic table after decades of isolation. Ms Rice, unlike ex-British prime minister Tony Blair, declined to meet Gaddafi in his infamous tent, opting instead...

    Now it's starting to get real serious: Though initially skeptical that top Iranian regime figures were behind a plot to assassinate Saudi Arabia's ambassador to Washington, U.S. government officials became convinced by the operation's money trail and now consider it likely that Iran's supreme leader was aware of the plan. "This is the kind of operation — the assassination of a diplomat on foreign soil — that would have been vetted at the highest levels of the Iranian government," said a senior U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about...
  • Fukushima finds cesium in Nihonmatsu rice, to hold more tests before shipment decision

    09/26/2011 8:09:17 AM PDT · by TigerLikesRooster · 3 replies
    Fukushima finds cesium in Nihonmatsu rice, to hold more tests before shipment decision The Fukushima Prefectural Government said on Sept. 23 that it had detected 500 becquerels of radioactive cesium per kilogram -- the government-set allowable limit -- in a sample of "Hitomebore" rice collected in Nihonmatsu's Obama district. It will greatly increase the number of testing locations there for a second test to decide whether to allow shipments of rice from the city. After discovering radioactive cesium in the rice crop from the city, Nihonmatsu became the first area to be designated a "priority test area," which means the...

    The rogues' gallery of the far left is enormously spacious, and it doesn't take much to be eligible for inclusion; any conservative worth his or her salt automatically qualifies. But with the possible exception of that eternal bogeyman, Richard Nixon, nobody is hated by the left with such abandon; nobody is more vilified; nobody is targeted with such volcanic eruptions of insane hatred and vitriol as former Vice President Dick Cheney.But why? What did Cheney do to deserve such vicious scorn?

    You've no doubt by now heard about the report from... wait for this one... the National Inquirer quoting an upcoming unauthorized biography of Sarah Palin ( brought it to mainstream knowledge). The Inquirer reported that Rice confirmed a sexual encounter with Palin in 1987. We haven't covered it since Rice hasn't been in the league since 2004 and this has nothing to do with basketball. But since if it's anything about anything, Charles Barkley will talk about it, and since, let's be honest, Charles Barkley is never lacking in entertainment value, we thought we'd pass along Barkley's comments about the...

Speaking in an interview with Reuters, Rice rejected Cheney's contention that she misled President George W. Bush about nuclear diplomacy with North Korea.

    Full Title: Radioactive Rice to Come? Rice Growing in a Rice Paddy with 35,000 Becquerels/kg of Radioactive Cesium? No wonder the first trading of rice futures in Osaka fetched 40% premium over the exchange-suggested contract price. If this number is correct, the harvest season in Japan will be indeed "chaos". From the tweet of Ryuichi Kino, who has attended and reported on almost all TEPCO/government press conferences regarding the Fukushima accident since March, reporting on the TEPCO/government joint press conference on August 8: SNIP (Japanese text) Germany's ZDF Television is here.

    Rice futures trading suspended after price soars on nuclear fears Business Aug. 09, 2011 - 06:12AM JST ( 17 ) TOKYO — Japan started trading rice futures Monday but suspended the market after the price of the staple grain soared on fears that radioactive contamination from the Fukushima disaster will restrict supply. The nuclear plant, hit by the powerful March 11 quake and tsunami, has spewed radiation into the environment for nearly five months, tainting farm produce, including beef after cattle were fed radioactive rice straw. Consumer fears have grown that rice will be contaminated too and many families have...

    Last year's rice being hoarded over radiation contamination worries TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Consumers are beginning to hoard last year's rice as their dietary staple over concerns that freshly harvested rice may be contaminated with radioactive materials released from the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, retailers said Friday. The Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry is working to establish a system for ensuring the safety of rice ahead of the harvest season in autumn, with plans to inspect the crop in two stages. The buying spree, however, indicates deep public distrust of the government's handling of food safety issues in the...

    The most recent issue of ESPN the Magazine, the bi-weekly publication of the 24-hours cable sports network ESPN, gave current and former pro athletes their own segment to “sound off” on various subjects, including news of the day.

Instead, he offered readers some thoughts on President Barack Obama’s performance. Shorter version – it’s George Bush’s fault: "I think with President Obama, everyone is criticizing him for taking...

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice this week issued a blistering rebuke of Russia, China and other countries that blocked the Security Council from adopting a statement linking the threat of climate change to international peace and security. During the Security Council’s first formal debate in four years on the environment Wednesday, Russia was not swayed by Western nations led by Germany, this month's council president, insisting that the 15-nation panel needs to respond to the effects that climate change has had on Sudan's Darfur region and in Somalia, where the United Nations say famine had struck two...

    Fellow lawmen were fighting Monday to help a Rice University police officer get his job back after he was fired for responding to an off-campus "officer down" call. Officer David Sedmak’s trouble began when he heard a radio call on May 7 about a shooting at a downtown Houston Greyhound station. After learning that an officer had been shot, Sedmak left the campus – two minutes away from the scene – and rushed to the scene to help. Two HPD officers were wounded by the gunman outside the Greyhound station. Other officers took cover behind the Rice officer’s car, so...

    This is why you don’t debate with talking points with a person of Condi Rice’s intellect. Some have called this a spanking. I call it a a lesson in bad interviewing. If this were one of Condi’s classes, Lawrence O’Donnell would be clapping erasers after class. IF you watch nothing else today, please watch this, and listen, and enjoy. Allahpundit at Hot Air gives O’Donnell props just for having Rice on. But I don’t think if you call yourself a journalist, you pat yourself on the back just because you take on an opponent face-to-face.

    I’m tempted to accuse O’D of trying to build Olby-esque cred with MSNBC’s viewers by being so confrontational with one of Bush’s lieutenants, but that would be unfair. The hallmark of “Countdown” was avoiding confrontation; only the three cameras arrayed around Olby’s desk knew what it was like to receive the “sir” treatment face to face. Credit to O’Donnell for being willing to sit down with her, at least. It was a, er, gutsy call. If you’re thinking you’d rather pass on the umpteen-thousandth Iraq war debate in which neither party has a remote chance of convincing the other, think...

As the National Security Council special adviser to Obama on human rights, Power reportedly influenced Obama in his decision. Now it has emerged that Sunstein has maintained extensive ties...

    Rice Gone from Tokyo Area Supermarkets Tokyo, March 16 (Jiji Press)--Rice has sold out at supermarkets in the Tokyo metropolitan area due to the disruption of transportation networks in the Tohoku northeastern Japan region hit by the massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake Friday. Given the emergency situation, Ito-Yokado supermarkets, operated by Seven & i Holdings Co. <3382>, held special sales events in the Tokyo metropolitan area Wednesday, and customers stood in long lines in front of the stores well ahead of their opening.

    There's been a lot of discussion in certain circles on the topic of President Obama's "eligibility." (Incidentally, Dr. William Oddie cogently argues in a recent commentary that Obama is an enemy of the Catholic Church. Click here to read it.) Charles E. Rice, professor emeritus at Notre Dame Law School — and author of the book What Happened to Notre Dame? — argues that it's time for a new approach on the eligibility issue. His commentary is reprinted below.
