    full title....Historians claim Obama's 'Door of No Return' which he visited to highlight the evils of slavery is a 'scam' and was actually used as a garbage dumpWhen President Barack Obama visited the 'Door of No Return' on a Senegalese island on Thursday, he believed he was looking at where Africans were shipped across the Atlantic into slavery. But not all may be as it first seemed. Historians claim that the entrance of Slave House on Goree Island where Obama posed for a photo opportunity was most likely only used for disposing of garbage.

    KOGELO, Kenya At President Barack Obama's ancestral village in Kenya, witch doctor John Dimo tossed some shells, bones and other items to determine who will win Tuesday's election. After throwing the objects like so many dice outside his hut in Kogelo village, Dimo, who says he is 105 years old, points to a white shell and declares: "Obama is very far ahead and is definitely going to win." While pollsters in the U.S. are using interviews, statistical analysis and the technology to predict the outcome of the election in America - one that is expected to be close - Dimo...

    Critics say that the tone and brevity of Obama's remarks on Fort Hood 'did not appreciate the gravity of what he represents' while others say he had the right presidential instincts. As the U.S. military and law enforcement were scrambling to save lives after a deadly shooting rampage at Ft. Hood, Texas, President Obama opened his remarks Thursday with a two-minute "shout out" to audience members who attended the Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Interior Department. Obama's initial comments on the shooting that killed 13 and wounded scores of others came at the conclusion of Thursday's conference, which was...

Joe Galliott, 65, lost his bearings during a power cut at his home in Yeovil, Somerset, and fell against the three-seater which toppled onto him. Because of back problems, he was unable to free his 19-stone frame and remained stuck for 60 hours until a neighbour spotted him through the curtains. He said a bottle of whisky, which had rolled within reach, kept him going. "The whole settee tipped over catching me like a rat in a trap," he...

    Despite legal and security hurdles, president-elect Barack Obama says he has a plan to retain his beloved Blackberry once he moves into the White House next week. Interviewed by CNN Friday, Obama said the smartphone was among the tools that he would use to stay in touch with real Americans and avoid becoming trapped inside the presidential "bubble." "I think we're going to be able to hang on to one of these. My working assumption, and this is not new, is that anything I write on an email could end up being on CNN," he said. "So I make sure...

"This is so irritating," Obama said when asked about the photo in Muscatine, Iowa. The photo, which has circulated widely on the Internet, was taken in September during Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin's annual Democratic fundraiser. A message accompanying the photo claims Obama didn't observe the pledge. Obama said the photo was taken during the singing of the national anthem, not the pledge. "My grandfather...

The Washington Post described the President's appearance this way: The evening took a turn toward the somber when the President took the stage. After a videotaped message from David Letterman ("Top 10 George W. Bush Moments"), he said, "In light of this week's tragedy at Virginia Tech I've decided not to be funny."

    A leading economist says the true cost of Iraq is far higher than President Bush claims -- and America will pay the price for decades to come. When America invaded Iraq in 2003, the Bush administration predicted that the war would turn a profit, paying for itself with increased oil revenues. So far, though, Congress has spent more than $350 billion on the conflict, including the $50 billion appropriated for 2007. But according to one of the world's leading economists, that is just a fraction of what Iraq will actually wind up costing American taxpayers. Joseph Stiglitz, winner of the...

Hillary Rodham Clinton's "It Takes a Village" is being reissued in December, with a new foreword by the senator, to mark the book's 10th year since publication. "When we published `It Takes a Village' 10 years ago, Hillary Rodham Clinton brought to the fore her long-standing concerns about how public policy affects our children — in ways both large and small," Carolyn Reidy, president of Simon & Schuster, said in a statement released Tuesday. "Though new readers continually discover this influential and important...

As the director of the National Security Agency, Michael Hayden oversaw the creation of the massive domestic spying program revealed last week. Now George Bush wants him to run the CIA. After yesterday's hearings, it's obvious that Hayden's involvement in the NSA's domestic spying program disqualifies him from heading the CIA. His answers to questions from Congress and from the press have been evasive at best and downright false at worst. The Bush administration's chronic...

    A Cook County judge has dismissed Wilmette resident Hale DeMar's court challenge against the village's handgun ordinance, ruling that he had no legal right to own the handgun he used to wound and drive off a burglar in December. DeMar was cleared of any wrongdoing in the shooting itself, but was cited under Wilmette's 15-year old ordinance banning handgun possession, which can result in a fine and loss of the weapons. Before that case could be heard, DeMar's attorneys filed a counterclaim seeking to have Wilmette's law declared unconstitutional as it was applied to him. They claimed the village's application...

Members of the crowd of about 400 surged closer to the orange snow fence that defined the protest pen, craning their necks for a view of the object of their scorn. No luck. The anti-Bush crowd let out a hearty chorus of boos, followed by a chant of "No More Years." They easily drowned out the chants of "Four More Years" from the flag-waving Bush crowd. Small...
