The federal government’s Joint Terrorism Task Force quickly joined the investigation into Lloyd R. Woodson, 43, who had been staying at a Branchburg motel since last week. Woodson, whose last known address was in Reston, Va., was wearing a bullet-proof vest and carrying one of the assault rifles — customized to shoot...

The finds will be presented in a forthcoming production by World Television Network (WTN).

She was assisted by former arms inspector and WMD expert Åke Sellström from Swedish Defence Research Agency (Totalförsvarets forskningsinstitut, FOI)....

    <p>An arsenal of exotic weapons - including a sniper rifle, a spear and a set of 8-inch metal claws - were seized from a 23-year-old Jersey City man after his worried father called cops. When South District cops responded to the Greenville home yesterday morning, they found the sniper rifle - with a powerful scope and a laser sight - as well as three Glock handguns and more than 1,200 rounds of ammunition, reports said. Among the bullets were illegal "hollow-point" rounds, police said. In addition to the spear and metal claws, cops found a number of savage-looking knives, including one that had blades coming out of each end of its carved wooden handle. The owner of the weapons lived with his father, his brother and two younger brothers, police said.</p>

    ZUWAD KHALAF, Iraq - U.S. soldiers in the northern Iraqi desert dug up more than 1,000 aging rockets and missiles wrapped in plastic, some of which were buried as recently as two weeks ago, Army officials said Tuesday. Commanders in the 101st Airborne Division said an Iraqi tipped them off to the buried weapons, perhaps an indication that residents in this largely Sunni Arab region about 150 miles north of Baghdad are beginning to warm up to coalition forces. "The tide is turning," said 2nd Lt. Patrick Vardaro, 23, of Norwood, Mass., a platoon leader in the division's 187th Infantry...

By this, Nadler meant to defend his attacks on the alleged abuses of the (in fact) privileged  prisoners in Guantanamo Bay. Thanks to the efforts of the...

    We have the Kerry stump speech and the MSNBC outtake footage put back to back that blows the whole Weapons cache story out of the water. This is the same story that Drudge broke last night that MSNBC was reporting on. It seems that Kerry keeps speaking before there are facts and looking like a fool. The news media is just so anxious to get anything negative out on Bush that they don't do their fact checking and just run with any derogatory on the Bush campaign. Kerry also doesn't seem to be learning their lesson about running with a...

    Anybody else getting the feeling that NBC is the Clinton wing of the media? They broke protocol on backing Kerry and tore down the Time's story on the missing weapons. Katie went after Kerry pretty hard in her interview. Matthews had an orgasm when he saw Bill in PA. To me, they seem to have an almost subtle anti-Kerry bent this last week. Could they be trying to crash Kerry's campaign for the Clintons or even at the behest of the Clintons? If they pick up the story on the Hanoi documents proving Kerry was doing the bidding of the...

William Krar, 62, with ties to white supremacist groups, pleaded guilty to possessing a chemical weapon and faces life in prison, while 54-year-old Judith Bruey could get five years. She pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess illegal weapons. "They certainly...
