    The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has historically been a place for bipartisanship—a place where both parties and all members come together to advance America’s interests in the world. -Senator John Frakkin' Kerry, Chairman of U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. As with the 2006 Senate Intelligence Investigation into pre-war intel, and its 2008 phase II final report, this report, TORA BORA REVISITED: HOW WE FAILED TO GET BIN LADEN AND WHY IT MATTERS TODAY smacks of politicization, right from the opening get-go.

    Being somewhat older than most folks here and a film buff for all those years I could speak and listen, the thread on Favorite War films got me to thinking. There are many fine war films that have never been seen by those born past 1970, so I have put as many as I could remember. Just cut & paste the film's title into IMDb search mode and click away. IMDb is at http://us.imdb.com/ There are so many genres of films, television series and mini-series about warfare, so I will start threads to list all your favorites in each category:...

Ushers dressed in World War II military uniforms, vintage cars pulling up to the curb, Pearl Harbor survivors and a recently restored 1940s military searchlight would be on hand Dec. 7 to greet the crowds at a special anniversary showing of “Tora! Tora! Tora!” at San Pedro’s historic Warner Grand Theatre. The 1970 film — a joint American and Japanese production — is considered one of the most accurate...
