Oops ... Turns Out Iraq Was Trying To Buy Uranium After All

Where are the cries of "Joe Wilson LIED" among NY Times editors? You can hear crickets chirping as anti-war journalists seek to dismiss the gathering evidence that Hussein was indeed buying weapons grade nuclear material.

But it won't go away.

As Wilson's lies unfold, one has to wonder about the political expediency involved. Wilson claimed his wife had nothing to do with the recommendation that he be sent to Niger. Yet it was Valerie Plume's boss who sent him. Odd that he would never ask his subordinate about her husband's qualifications.

Now, plenty on the left insist it was treason that Valerie Plume was outed for being the most non-undercover agent of all time. Funny that neither the Rosenbergs or Alger Hiss can be treasonous but someone in Bush's administration can ... for alleging that there was funny business in Joe Wilson's claims and that it was related to his wife. Which turned out to be ... ummm ... true.

Palestinian Miltants Sack Offices of Nobel Prize Winner

Live by terrorism, die by terrorism. Well, Arafat didn't die. He just made a lot of people organizing a campaign of hatred against Jews angry at him as well. Except they are angry at him for a good reason. Sensing that there needed to be a 'reorganization' after last week's kidnapping of the Palestinian Authority police chief, he chose a relative. What a surprise. An Arab dictator choosing a relative.

Oddly, these new protests are happening precisely because Israelis have said they will pull out of Gaza. Now there is a power struggle because it turns out Arafat needs Israel to hate more than Israel needs Gaza. With Israel making concessions there is no reason not to have peace ... or democracy. Right? So it would seem.

In a rare news conference, Moussa Arafat brushed aside protests over his appointment. "I take my orders from His Excellency President Arafat," he said, seated below a huge portrait of his mentor. "He is the only one who can ask me to quit my job."

He said he was ready to "engage in any battle against any potential enemy," and made it clear the enemy could come from within the Palestinian camp.

What a surprise. Now Arafat and his family are ready to kill fellow Arabs who disagree with him.

For this he got a Nobel Prize?

Mother and Baby In France Attacked Because They Were Mistaken For Jews

French claims to tolerance and a lack of favoritism for Muslims notwithstanding, this kind of thing happens far too often in France ... because being anti-Semitic is one of the last bastions of allowable hatred in Europe. And the French know they have a violent underclass of Muslims waiting to strike if the French stand up to them.

The six attackers who were armed with knives clipped the 23-year-old woman's hair, and cut her t-shirt and pants before drawing three swastikas on her body.
The men of North African origin also overturned the pram with her baby of 13 months. In the attack they robbed her backpack which contained her identity papers, a bank card and 200 euros ($250).

Police said the attackers erroneously assumed the woman was Jewish because she was living in Paris' 16th district. "Only Jews live in the 16th district," one of the men was quoted as having said.

French President Jacques Chirac expressed his horror and condemned what he called "a shameful attack."

Was it shameful because they didn't kill someone, shameful because the newspapers found out about it, or shameful because Jewish treatment in France remains a black mark on French culture?

UN Complains That The Nuclear WMDs Iraq Never Had Were Shipped out of Iraq To The US Without Their Approval

You remember the WMDs Iraq never had, right? Well, why then is the UN complaining that the nearly 2 tons of low-enriched uranium and approximately 1,000 highly radioactive items transferred from Iraq to the United States last month -- which had been placed under seal by the International Atomic Energy Agency at the sprawling Tuwaitha nuclear complex, 12 miles south of Baghdad -- were moved without their permission?

Because the nuclear material could be USED TO MAKE DIRTY BOMBS. Yes, the UN is worried about the US using this material to make dirty bombs, but not Iraq.

Because the UN believed that nuclear material was being used by Iraq for agricultural purposes. Yes, agriculture. And medicine. That Saddam sure cared about people.

Iraqis Talk About Saddam

Smelly chicks from Seattle may be harping on the "sovereignty" of Iraq ( under sanction and bombing for 11 years, sovereign may not mean what they think it means ) but real Iraqis who lived under Saddam's terrorist regime feel differently.

"I just hope they will try him by his own law. He knew nothing but executing people for even minor or imaginary offenses," Khaled Mohammed, 28, said as he watched with two friends at a cafe on Baghdad's Saadoun Street.

"Such a person shouldn't be tried. Standing a trial is an honor he doesn't deserve," said Rahman Aziz, 27, owner of a CD and cassette shop. "He should be sent directly to the gallows." Aziz said he was tortured in one of Saddam's prisons for seven months, after the secret police found CDs of Shiite Muslim literature in his shop.

"Watching him today is more saddening than joyful, because this coward maniac is the one who humiliated us and made our lives hell for 35 years," he said.

Al Qaeda Truce With Europe About To Expire

Muslim militants claiming links to al Qaeda vowed new attacks on Europe once a "truce" offered by Osama bin Laden expires in two weeks, newspapers said on Friday.

"We can't confirm that the Abu Hafs Brigade speaks authoritatively for al Qaeda, but absent that, it is fair to say that there would be some concern about the expiration of this deadline which could potentially presage other attacks," an official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Al Qaeda leader bin Laden, in an unconfirmed audiotape on April 15, gave European states three months to pull troops out of Afghanistan, Iraq and other Muslim countries or face new attacks like the Madrid train bombings that killed 191 people on March 11.

In response to this veiled threat, France increased its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide".
