    As school children continue to protest Michelle Obama’s push for healthier lunches by dumping their full trays into garbage bins, the nation’s school boards are joining in to demand that the Obama administration let them off the hook of serving the costly and tasteless meals. Armed with a national poll for National School Lunch Week, the National School Boards Association on Monday demanded that Washington address the “onerous requirements for federal school meal programs

    The Air Force dumped the incinerated partial remains of at least 274 American troops in a Virginia landfill, far more than the military had acknowledged, before halting the secretive practice three years ago, records show. The landfill dumping was concealed from families who had authorized the military to dispose of the remains in a dignified and respectful manner, Air Force officials said. There are no plans, they said, to alert those families now.

  • Snowe, Collins decline invitation to Obama event

    Both Maine Senators declined the White House's invitation to attend President Obama's event in their home state today, according to White House spokesman Bill Burton. Burton said the Maine Republicans decided not to attend Obama's healthcare speech in Portland, Maine. A spokeswoman for Snowe said the senator "had a full day of events already planned today long before we learned of the President's trip to Maine last Friday." Meanwhile, Collins is overseas visiting U.S. Central Command in Qatar, and her office says it's not clear she was invited in the first place. Of course, both Snowe and Collins opposed the...

    LONDON (AFP) - Police have revealed they were investigating the dumping of a pig's head outside a mosque on the first full day of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The head was found outside the Jamia Mosque in Newport, southeast Wales, on Saturday. The Koran strictly forbids Muslims to eat pork.

Nobody at the mosque was available for comment but Sheikh Mohammad Thair Ullah, the chairman of the nearby Shah...

    Two Russian immigrants looking to amass $50 million concocted a kidnapping-for-ransom scheme that ended with the bodies of five people dumped in a Northern California reservoir, a federal prosecutor said Wednesday. The trial of Iouri Mikhel and Jurijus Kadamovas opened with Assistant U.S. Attorney Susan DeWitt telling jurors the two men oversaw a crew who kidnapped and later killed the victims regardless of whether ransoms were paid. "No matter how much they (victims) cooperated or how much money was paid for their release, they were killed," DeWitt said. "The defendants did not want to leave witnesses alive." Mikhel, 41, and...

    Arutz 7 ^ | Apr 14, '05 | staff
    Arutz-7's Ezra HaLevi took an exclusive inside look into one of the most important and unique archaeological explorations in history - currently in danger of going unfinished due to lack of funding. In November 1999, the Islamic Wakf carried out an illegal construction project on the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site. The unsupervised digging caused irreparable damage to the important site, as well as to untold priceless artifacts contained in rubble removed during the construction and dumped clandestinely in the Kidron Valley. Though the archaeological remains were no longer in their original contexts, they held enormous potential to shed light...

    Liberals on Capitol Hill and in the media are screaming, "Where are the weapons?" Since the White House had argued that disarming Saddam was the main reason for going to war, not finding his forbidden weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) all lined up like prizes at a seaside shooting gallery has excited the president's political enemies to cry foul. Ewan Buchanan, spokesman for chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix, assures Insight that "it's far too early to tell" whether forbidden weapons remain in Iraq or where they might be. "It doesn't surprise me that U.S. forces haven't found anything yet....

    Political differences destroy start of a beautiful relationship Last Updated: March 22, 2003 Jim Stingl Right from the start, Kate and John knew they had political differences as wide as a no-fly zone. Could diplomacy work? Would their relationship become a casualty of the war at home? Would awe give way to shock and finally to liberation? When John met Kate through a mutual friend at an east side Milwaukee bar in January, he learned she was a 26-year-old professional fund-raiser. She had a good sense of humor. And physically. . . . He liked what he saw. But he...

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The Israeli political party that championed the Oslo accords with the Palestinians dealt Israel's battered peace camp another blow Tuesday by slapping down an architect of the 1993 landmark deal. Final results in the Labor Party's rank-and-file ballot on Monday to choose parliamentary candidates for a Jan. 28 general election showed Israel's Yossi Beilin, 54, had lost his bid to remain a lawmaker. In the last Labor primaries four years ago, Beilin was ranked second on the center-left party's list of candidates. But in the new vote held after more than two years of Israeli-Palestinian violence, Beilin...
