    SEATTLE -- The parents of a 23-year-old activist killed while trying to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home is suing Caterpillar Inc., the company that made the bulldozer that ran over her. The federal lawsuit, which lawyers said would be filed here Tuesday, alleges that Caterpillar violated international and state law by providing specially designed bulldozers to Israeli Defense Forces that it knew would be used to demolish homes and endanger people. Rachel Corrie, a student at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, was standing in front of a home in a refugee camp in Rafah, near the Egyptian...

    Security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that in addition to his involvement in the Tel Aviv bombing, the man was part of a cell that had also built a car bomb that IDF troops disarmed last week, and was planning further attacks. In the pre-dawn hours Thursday, members of the IDF paratroop reconnaissance unit surrounded the wanted man in a structure in Nazlat Al Wusta village near Tul Karm, and called on him several times to surrender. Initial reports indicated that the troops sent a dog into the building to locate the fugitive holed up inside. The Jihad...

    TRENTON, New Jersey (AP) -- Animal rights activists are disgusted by a new candy from Kraft Foods Inc. that's shaped like critters run over by cars -- complete with tire treads.   The fruity-flavored Trolli Road Kill Gummi Candy -- in shapes of partly flattened snakes, chickens and squirrels -- fosters cruelty toward animals, according to the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals."It sends the wrong message to children, that it's OK to harm animals. And that's the wrong message, especially from a so-called wholesome corporation like Kraft," said society spokesman Matthew Stanton.The society is considering...
  • Man Accused in Plot to Kill Bush Was Not Tortured, U.S. Prosecutors Say

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A Virginia man accused of plotting with al-Qaida to kill President Bush should be held indefinitely, federal prosecutors said Wednesday in court filings that also rejected his contention that he was tortured while held in Saudi Arabia. At a court hearing a day earlier in Alexandria, Va., 23-year-old Ahmed Abu Ali offered to display scars on his back as proof that he was tortured by Saudi authorities. In their filing Wednesday, prosecutors said, "There is no credible evidence to support those claims." Abu Ali never complained about his treatment during several meetings with an American diplomat in...

    Greensboro, NC -- An Irving Park home has been condemned in a case animal control officers are calling "extremely unsanitary". Investigators say the homeowner was picking up roadkill and keeping it in her refrigerator, freezer and in plastic bags behind her house. "[There was] just trash, filth and debris throughout the house," says animal control officer Jennifer Welch. "There wasn't anywhere in the house that wasn't covered in it." Welch says the homeowner's sister called animal control after the house was condemned by the city, seeking help in the cleanup. Investigators say the animal carcasses were removed last weekend and...

    Bring on the chiefs The newest line from John Kerry is "I have a plan." This brings to mind a saying from the Navy: "The only thing worse than an ensign with an idea is a j.g. with a plan." I guess we have found something worse: a former lieutenant j.g. running for president with a plan. At least in the Navy we had chiefs to save us from this. If we elect Kerry president, who will inject common sense into the plans?Robert UgascoChesapeake

    Ok you guys. Lets be fair here. If you are going to really have a fair discussion on the subject and your TRUELY care about this country and our progress get your heads out of Hanity's butt and refer to this information: The number of bills that bear your name is a poor measure of legislative accomplishment. For example, Ted Kennedy, who most would acknowledge as the most accomplished Democratic Senator in a generation, has had just 9 bills signed into law in 10 years. Of the more than 400 bills Kennedy sponsored in 108th, 105th and 104th Congresses none...

    <p>" It didn’t sound like a hard question. After George W. Bush delivered a tepidly received address to a convention of minority journalists, a Native-American editor from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer asked, “What do you think tribal sovereignty means in the 21st century?” As president and a former governor, the journalist said, Bush had a “unique experience, looking at [the issue] from two perspectives.” The president fumbled. “Tribal sovereignty means that—it’s sovereignty,” he stammered. “I mean, you’re a—you’re a—you’ve been given sovereignty and you’re viewed as a sovereign entity.” As Bush rambled, looking like a schoolboy unprepared at the front of the class, many of the hundreds of Asian, black, Native American and Hispanic journalists gathered before him…well, snickered.</p>

    By you own admission, the Free Republic hates democrats, non-Christians, gays, the environment, strong women and pacificts to name a few. That's about 80% of your fellow Americans that you oppose. You claim to be defenders of the constitution and yet you support amendments allowing the federal government to tell you who you can marry and what religion you should follow. You claim to believe in free speech and in the next sentence say you will censor anyone that doesn't agree with you. And yet you claim to to be pro FREEDOM? I don't get it.

    This Is No Time For Libertarian Nonsense By Jim Delinis http://www.freedominion.ca Of all the tiresome political talking points to emerge post-September 11, the civil libertarians have been by far the most tiresome. Attorney General Ashcroft went to great pains to please this group in the original anti-terror bill (the PATRIOT Act) only be to painted as the Devil Incarnate. There is a lesson to learn in all of this. The Civil Libertarians are a relic of a time that has long since past. They, in the name of freedom and commerce, continually stand in the way of much-needed measures that...

    This spring, the [Bush] administration significantly increased its pressure on Pakistan to kill or capture Osama bin Laden, his deputy, Ayman Al Zawahiri, or the Taliban's Mullah Mohammed Omar, all of whom are believed to be hiding in the lawless tribal areas of Pakistan... ...This public pressure would be appropriate, even laudable, had it not been accompanied by an unseemly private insistence that the Pakistanis deliver these high-value targets (HVTs) before Americans go to the polls in November.

    <p>In case you don't know, "Freepers" are fans of a certain far-out-right-wing-nut website and they go on sites like this and "freep" books with one-star reviews without reading them. They're group-thinkers and dittoheads. They go on polling sites and "freep" them as well, and the ones who are technically inclined attempt to infiltrate some websites and shut them down. They're rotten, horrible people.</p>
