    CAIRO – How do you count almost 40 million handwritten paper ballots in a matter of hours and declare a winner? That's a key question in Iran's disputed presidential election. International polling experts and Iran analysts said the speed of the vote count, coupled with a lack of detailed election data normally released by officials, was fueling suspicion around President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's landslide victory. Iran's supreme leader endorsed the hard-line president's re-election the morning after Friday's vote, calling it a "divine assessment" and appearing to close the door on challenges from Iran's reformist camp. But on Monday, after two days...

    About an hour and a half ago Fox News ran a report about an FBI raid on a trucking company in Millington TN. A reporter with WREC in Memphis was talking, said the FBI came in with copies of two drivers licenses. I caught some of it, then haven't seen another word on FOX, on FOX website, nor can I find a word about this on the WREC site. Now that Naomi Campbell is sick and in the news, this will probably go down the memory hole. Just wondering if any other freepers heard this report? I searched FR and...

    Admit it, whatever happens between Roger Clemens and the United States government's House Oversight Committee Wednesday, almost every person reading this column assumes that Clemens was a user. If he is exonerated, then fine. We'll accept that, too. But the headline, "Ageing Hall of Fame Pitcher Didn't Do Steroids" will come as a bit of a surprise, because let's face it: aren't all those guys juiced these days? Clemens' team of lawyers would chastise us for looking at Clemens as guilty until proven innocent, and not the other way around. But the fact he even has a team of lawyers...

    A noose was left hanging from a tree limb near a black cultural studies center on an American college campus. That's the scenario that University of Maryland police, with help from the FBI, are investigating as a possible hate crime that may be tied to a similar racial controversy playing out in Louisiana. Students and faculty at the university's Nyumburu Cultural Center reported the noose to police Friday afternoon, Paul Dillon, a spokesman for the University of Maryland Police Department, told ABC News. The building has been a meeting point for the university's black students and faculty for 27 years....

    PORT ANGELES - A car carrying four men reportedly sped through the U.S. Customs port of entry off the ferry from Victoria on Wednesday night. The Port Angeles Police Department received a report through the PenCom dispatch center of the car failing to stop for inspection. The car disembarked off the MV Coho at about 9:20 p.m. after the day's last southbound sailing. It reportedly raced past the checkpoint so quickly that nobody could determine a license plate number or even the plates' jurisdiction. The car turned left - or eastbound - onto Railroad Avenue from the port of entry,...

    Military F-16 jets forced a small plane to land at a Clay County airport Monday night after an air traffic controller reported the pilot had made suspicious comments. FBI spokesman Jeff Lanza said multiple jets intercepted the plane, which was being flown from Oklahoma, and escorted it to Clay County Regional Airport near Excelsior Springs, where agents interviewed the pilot. Lanza said the FBI had received information that the pilot had made a statement that would lead one to conclude the plane, which was en route to Kansas City, had been taken over. He said the pilot then stopped communicating....

    LONDON - Police searching woods for clues in an alleged plot to bomb trans-Atlantic passenger jets have found a suitcase containing components for an improvised explosive device, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported Thursday.

The wood is near the home of one of two dozen suspects arrested Aug. 10 in connection with the foiled bomb plot. The Metropolitan Police refused to comment on the...
