    I used to have a standard line that I would ask people if I thought I recognized them. “Do I look familiar to you?” I would ask. I used to ask that question at least once a week, but I haven’t asked anyone that in at least four years. Four years ago, I saw a woman in a store and I knew that I recognized her. I could tell that she recognized me, too, because every time we would pass each other she would give me a little smile. Finally, I just asked, “Do I look familiar to you?” She...

    Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein said Tuesday that the White House told her that it was on “oversight” that Congress didn’t receive the required notification about the prisoner exchange deal that secured the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Mrs. Feinstein, California Democrat, said the excuse came from Tony Blinken, President Obama’s deputy national security adviser. “Tony Blinken called last night and said that it was an oversight or something to that effect. So I accept that,” she told reporters at the Capitol.

    A thug who broke a bank manager’s nose in an unprovoked assault has been let off with a caution—because he said “sorry”. Ryan Gough, 41, was punched in the face four times outside his girlfriend’s home in the road rage attack last Saturday afternoon. The unnamed biker knocked on Gough’s car window as he was parking at the house in Asfordby, near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire—and punched him for “cutting him up”. The 40-year-old suspect was caught minutes later by police, but Gough learned this week that his attacker had been let off because he had apologized for his actions.Gough, from...

    (CNSNews.com) - Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday expressed sorrow and anger at the escalating number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, including at least 71 killed by "gun violence." "We can, and we must, do even more" to protect law enforcers," Holder told the spring meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General in Washington. "Just as I promised last year, protecting the safety of our law enforcement officers has been, and will continue to be, a key area of focus for the Justice Department," Holder said. Holder noted that 177 law enforcement officers were...

    For the first time in Turkey's history, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has apologized to the Kurds for bombing raids against their people in the mid 1930s. "If there is need for an apology on behalf of the state, if there is such a practice in the books, I would apologize and I am apologizing," Erdogan declared. He made the apology in a televised speech that followed a debate with Republican People's Party leader, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, leader of Turkey's main opposition party. Kilicdaroglu's family is based in the southeastern town of Tunceli, once known as Dersim, where the 1930's massacre...

    Pressed by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Tex., during Wednesday testimony before the Senate Judiciary committee, Attorney General Eric Holder declined to offer his apologies to the family of slain border agent Brian Terry. Under Holder's leadership, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives ran Operation Fast and Furious, under which thousands of guns were allowed to "walk" to Mexico, where they wound up in the hands of Mexican drug lords. At least two of the weapons were found at Terry's murder scene. Today, Politico's Tim Mak reports: Eric Holder has told the family of slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian...

Facebook said Friday it mistakenly removed a post in which Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer criticized a controversial policy decision by President Barack Obama’s administration to limit deportations of illegal immigrants. Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes responded to a query by The Associated Press by saying in a brief email that Brewer’s post was removed in error and that Facebook was sorry.

    I strongly suspect that Obama has led a life in which he has *always* been able to find the easy way out, and up till now this has always worked for him. Look at his biography – sure, his mother’s troubles are well documented, but at an early age he went to live with his wealthy hawaiian grandparents, one of whom was a bank vice president. Come on – even as a kid, he lived the dream that the rest of us could only fantasize about. He went to one of the best prep schools in the state. Then he...

    Reuters didn’t mean to crop Israeli soldiers’ blood and the knives of their attackers out of its photographs from the Gaza flotilla incident. It’s just that Reuters have a policy of “cropping at the edges which conveniently removed these things. Israeli officials, facing criticism for boarding an aid flotilla bound for the Gaza strip, stress that their troops used deadly force in self-defense. News that Reuters had cropped two images of armed “peace” activists, including one with bleeding Israeli soldiers surrounded by armed flotilla crews supports the Israeli position and threatens Reuters with scandal.

"I am honored to be (here) representing the United States. The president is angry," Biden told a group of dignitaries at the U.S. consulate in Sandton, near Johannesburg. Biden, who arrived in South Africa with several family members about a day ahead of the kick-off to the sports spectacle, told the group not to take the U.S. side lightly. The United States play...

    "Sorry" is heard often when United Church of Canada members meet en masse. Facing an uncertain future, brought about in part by internal divisions and financial constraints, the church is busy with remorse. It topped the agenda at the church's 40th General Council, ending today. Apologies were offered first to ab-originals forced to attend residential schools in Canada; some students experienced violence and abuse at schools administered by the United Church. The church formally apologized in 1998 but the process of recognition and reconciliation will continue, said Rev. James Scott, the church's General Council Officer for Residential Schools. "Reconciling, particularly...

    In a belated expression of remorse for the nuclear strikes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki sixty years ago, Congress has authorized the Army to launch apologetic nuclear strikes on two American cities. The selection of cities is not final, but they will most likely be Dallas and Houston in a nod to the Democratic desire to attack cities in a "red" state. Former President and legendary humanitarian Jimmy Carter explained, "While sitting next to my good friend Michael Moore at the Democratic National Convention, he reminded me of his words about 9/11: 'If someone did this to get back at Bush,...

"Obviously I don't like the idea of people losing jobs, or being worried about their 401(k)s. On the other hand, the American people got to know that we will safeguard the system. I mean, we're in.

Then why does it embolden them by apologizing on the 25th anniversary of Argentina's Falklands invasion for the loss of life in that war? The 25th anniversary of Argentina's invasion of the Falklands should be a time of reflection and resolve, given the new threat Britain faces with 15 of its sailors held hostage in Iran. But the British government's tribute to the attack on Sunday was downright pathetic.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has done it repeatedly the past few years, for everything from off-the-cuff musings to Hollywood star-era bad behavior. So San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's pained public apology Feb. 1 for an affair with the wife of his campaign manager served as a high-profile initiation into a growing club -- that of prominent public figures who have had to say "I'm sorry" in the glare of very...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger sat down with The Chronicle's editorial board this week. Frankly, some of us weren't expecting much. Schwarzenegger is only occasionally available, and when one of his people told us he would be 25 minutes late, we thought that would be a good excuse to cut into his scheduled time. "Oh no,'' one of his people said, "he's going to give you a full hour.'' And he did. Some of what he said was political boilerplate. There was some ducking and dodging and a little filibustering to elude tough questions. (He didn't want to answer one about gay...

In Lebanon and throughout the wider Arab and Muslim world, however, the village's name has for the last decade been synonymous with something else: the killing in April 1996 of more than 100 men, women and children who had taken refuge in a U.N. compound, hiding from Israeli shelling directed at Hezbollah. Over time, Qana has been sculpted by Hezbollah into a symbol of martyrdom, a Shiite version of Sabra and...

"The officers made a good faith, but mistaken effort to enforce an old unwritten interpretation of the prohibitions about demonstrating in the Capitol. The policy and procedures were too vague," said Capitol Police Chief Terrance W. Gainer. "The failure to adequately prepare the officers is mine." Sheehan was taken into custody shortly after unzipping her jacket, revealing her T-shirt, which had the message, "2245 Dead. How many...

    Yaa, you repukes are not doing so well, huh? Imagine, you repukes control the presidency, both houses of Congress, and appointed 7 of the 9 Supreme Court justices. Yet the Supreme Court thre out sodomy laws in all 50 states and recognized the right of government to seize land for any reason. And you couldn't pass your Social Security changes could you? Sorry, that was your last shot. Come November, we're going to start seeing more Democratic faces in the House. It's the end for you guys. You guys are celebrating when Bush's numbers go *up* to 45%. Then Faux...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A bomb that killed six civilians Monday near Baiji, Iraq, missed its target by 65 feet (20 meters) and hit the wrong home, military officials said. The bomb, which was dropped by a U.S. fighter plane, was aimed at a building that three men entered after planting a roadside bomb as an unmanned surveillance plane watched from overhead, the officials said. A U.S. Navy F-14 Tomcat fighter jet strafed the building before the bomb was dropped, according to a U.S. military statement released after the nighttime attack. The bomb had "successful effects against the insurgents," the statement...

    NY’s junior senator is in full fundraising mode for other Dems and her own possible ‘08 presidential bid WASHINGTON -- What's in a name? About $50 million for Democrats who have used Hillary Rodham Clinton's money-making moniker to raise cash for their campaigns since 2001. New York's junior senator has drummed up at least that much for Democrats around the country simply by lending her name to "Dear Friend" fundraising letters or appearing at events on their behalf, according to a new estimate of Clinton's fundraising clout compiled by her campaign. She's raised $1.2 million for Senate and House hopefuls...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    Why does anybody support George w Bush as President? He is clearly the worst President I have ever seen -- a complete disaster. And before you say anything, I have been a registered Republican for 25 years.

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...

    Lies of omission about 9/11 -- stoking fears of terrorism THEY WANT YOU TO BE AFRAID The following post was censored by freerepublic.com shortly after it was posted on their "public" forum on 9/11/04. That forum is designed to appear as though it is a community forum open to all, but this post only received three responses before it and its replies were deleted, and a repeat posting at 4 am PST on 9/20/04 didn't stay online for 5 minutes! Someone is apparently watching closely over the content of the freerepublic.com forums and censoring them 24/7 (though they might have...
