Benazir Bhutto: [Osama] Bin Laden was Murdered: In this amazing video, David Frost interviews Benazir Bhutto, who refers to "Omar Sheik, the man who murdered Osama Bin Laden." (2.19 minutes into the video)Bhutto said:Omar Sheikh, the man who murdered Osama Bin Laden. Now I know that having dealings with people does not necessarily mean direct evidence. But I also know that internal security has totally collapsed in Pakistan and that internal security cannot collapse without there being some blind eye if not delusion...."
"...These are the forces that really want to stop not just me but the democratic process and the will of the people from triumphing.... One of them is a very key figure in security. He's a former military officer. He is someone that has had dealings with [Jeze Mohammed?], one of the band groups of [? Assar]... who was in a jail for decapitating... three American tourist. He also had dealings with
Questions worth asking: Benazir Butto's matter-of-fact reference to Bin Laden's murderer suggests that this killing was no secret to Muslim leaders. But the Western media has been totally silent. Why would they not want to discuss this revelation? Why not explore it further? Why the continuing comments about Bin Laden's possible hiding places, when no one has evidence that he is still alive?
Not long after this interview Benazir Butto was killed!
If Bin Laden was killed, why did Barack Obama accuse the Republicans of failing to stop him? Why doesn't anyone suggest that he might already be dead? He suffered from chronic kidney disease. While hospitalized in Dubai (2001), he met with a top CIA official. "Yet on July 14, he was allowed to leave Dubai on a private jet, and there were no Navy fighters waiting to force him down."
Might Osama bin Laden have served as phony target for public rage -- just like the video that supposedly caused the riots in Benghazi? Might his real death have occurred years before President Obama got the credit for disposing of a global threat? Might the American leaders have kept his dreaded name and memory alive for so that Osama's death could be celebrated at a later date and a more expedient time?
After all, if Obama and Hillary Clinton can blame the Benghazi terror on a fictional video, why not use the Osama story for the same purpose. Remember, Al Quada has grown, not shrunk, this last year. [See Bin Laden Met With CIA In July...And Walked Away]
Osama Bin Laden was murdered (an account translated into English): "Benazir said that the man who had killed Bin Laden is Omar Sheikh. I have observed with attention (and many others before me) and the lips say just that. Someone recalled that Omar Sheikh was an agent of the Pakistani military intelligence service ISI which transferred 100 thousand dollars to Mohammed Atta before the attack on 9 / 11.
"Here the story ends and begins the scandal, but rather an endless mountain of scandals, one within another. ... Its presenter, David Frost, a man expert, do not think he realizes. Benazir not interrupted, no requests for clarification.
"The second scandal is the silence of all the Western media (and obviously Italian).... At least to deny. But nothing. Silence. Do not you realize? ...no one writes a line or none of the media "mainstream" (the most important media ) devotes one line, a picture of the explosion of questions contained in those words.
"The Economist, illustrious screen, like many others, has spent just a cover for their penultimate number to Pakistan, to define 'the most dangerous place in the world' but has not spent even half of this news item. And we are all involved in the global fight against terrorism, but neither government nor the American government, nor the CIA nor the FBI, they realize that the person indicated as head of global terrorism have killed or could have killed him. President George Bush keeps repeating his jaculatorias on terrorism and its threats against Iran and no one has said anything. ...
"...Benazir Bhutto.... had nothing to do with September 11. But now I find it more clear why they have killed. I knew too many things and one of them said. And it has been enough...."
Osama Bin Laden was murdered: "...the person who said he had been killed was not an unimportant person in the Pakistani scene."
US To Help Egypt Build Border Fence: "...along the Gaza-Egypt border. Washington transferred $23 million worth of special aid to the North African nation as part of its assistance in locating smuggling tunnels.... Israel is calling on Egypt to improve its crackdown on Palestinian smuggling, which the Jewish state says allows weapons to enter Gaza that are then used against southern Israel." Terrorism
A Family Affair? "Benazir Bhutto, the slain former Pakistani prime minister, names her 19-year-old son Bilawal as her successor and the new leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party... and her husband Asif Ali Zardari is expected to act as a kind of regent to him."See the next link:
Shady Reputation Trails Bhutto's Husband: "Benazir Bhutto's husband [Asif Ali Zardari], who took effective control of his slain wife's party Sunday, is a former Cabinet minister who spent eight years in prison on corruption.... Zardari, 54, who comes from a feudal family, shot to fame after his arranged marriage to Bhutto, who become prime minister for the first time in 1988, less than three months after giving birth to her son. Bhutto's husband is generally blamed for many of her political misfortunes, with her twice being forced out of the prime minister's office over allegations of corruption and misrule.
"Zardari was jailed for the first time in 1990 on charges ranging from murder to bank fraud when Bhutto's first government was dismissed. He was released in 1993 and acquitted of the charges, including the accusation that he tried to extort several million dollars from a British businessman by attaching a bomb to his leg....He was jailed a second time in 1996 over corruption allegations and alleged involvement in an attack on Bhutto's brother, Murtaza, who died in a shootout near his home in Karachi."See Human nature & depravity
CNN and Hillary destabilize Pakistan: "In the wake of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination, Wolf Blitzer of CNN made much of an [anonymous?] e-mail, exclusively provided to him by a close associate of Bhutto and a Hillary Clinton supporter, casting blame on Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf for her murder.... Blitzer called it 'my exclusive report on Benazir Bhutto casting blame for her own assassination two months before it happened.' If killed, she reportedly said in the e-mail, 'I would hold Musharraf responsible. I have been made to feel insecure by his minions…”
"Musharraf, under U.S. pressure, was forced to let her back in the country. Musharraf had to withdraw Interpol notices for her arrest on corruption charges. She is reportedly worth more than $1 billion and has been linked to the U.N.’s oil-for-food scandal. He knew - and she knew - that she would also be in danger from the same al-Qaeda forces that have targeted Musharraf himself. (Musharraf is a target because he has rounded up hundreds of suspected al-Qaeda terrorists... and has turned them over to the U.S.)
"Choosing to blame Musharraf for her murder (in advance of it happening) is about as rational as appearing openly at crowds with thousands of people and then departing in a car with her head poking through a sun roof....
"Senator John McCain noted, like Bush, that Musharraf has been a reliable partner of the U.S. in the war on al-Qaeda terrorism. He has compared himself to Abraham Lincoln holding America together as a sovereign entity and using emergency powers during the Civil War.
"Musharraf.... seized power from a Pakistani Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, who reportedly accepted bribes from Osama bin Laden and presided over the building of Pakistan’s nuclear bomb.....
"Carter, you may recall, helped undermine and topple the Shah of Iran in the name of promoting human rights and democracy there. That gave us the fanatical Mullahs and their 'peaceful'nuclear program.... Is the Democratic Party position that Musharraf should be toppled, in the same way that Carter helped undermine the Shah?"

MI5 Says Kids Groomed for Terror Attacks [UK]: "Extremists are grooming children and teenagers to plot terrorist attacks against Britain, the director of the domestic spy agency said Monday.... Al-Qaida in Iraq is attempting to stage attacks outside Iraq and parts of East Africa, particularly Somalia, have become a key area for training and planning of attacks on Britain.... Evans said thwarting plots alone is not enough to stop the threat of extremist terrorism, and urged the government and society to counter the message of radical preachers.... 'A key part of our strategy must be perseverance,' Evans said at a newspaper editors' conference. 'It starts with rejection of the violent extremist ideology across society.'''

Wounded Soldier: Military wants Part of bonus back: "The U.S. Military is demanding that thousands of wounded service personnel give back signing bonuses because they are unable to serve out their commitments. To get people to sign up, the military gives enlistment bonuses up to $30,000 in some cases. Now men and women who have lost arms, legs, eyesight, hearing and can no longer serve are being ordered to pay some of that money back."
In League With The Stones: "When we landed in Japan, for what came to be the finest and most humane occupation of a defeated enemy in recorded history, it was with great appreciation, thanksgiving, and praise for the atomic bomb team, including the aircrew of the Enola Gay. A half million American homes had been spared the Gold Star flag [and a casket], including, I'm sure, my own. Whenever I hear the apologists expressing guilt and shame for A-bombing and ending the war Japan had started... I have noted that neither the effete critics nor the puff-adder politicians are among us in the assault landing-craft or the stinking rice paddies of their suggested alternative, 'conventional' warfare...."

Making The War -- Ken Burns’ latest epic documents our bloodiest conflict ever: "At the beginning of Episode Six, Ray Leopold from Waterbury, Connecticut, talks about capturing a virtually accent-free German soldier who, through a casual conversation, tells Leopold that he had been trained in Hitler’s 'Administration of the Territories'—in other words, to handle the eventual takeover of the United States. The German soldier knows the exact whereabouts of Waterbury, the name of a major river running through it, and the name of another tiny river that intersects it. It’s a chilling account. I wasn’t aware that Hitler’s vision for world domination was so widespread and so detailed as to include each and every tiny portion of our very own country." See Human Nature
Warning says Iranian SCUD could do $771 billion damage: "...a SCUD-type missile launched from a small ship 200 miles from the coast of the United States could unleash a nuclear-generated electromagnetic pulse over Washington, D.C., that would leave behind $771 billion in damage." See God provides for His people
US military draft 'should be considered': "...in an interview with National Public Radio, [Lieutenant General Douglas ] Lute said, 'I think it makes sense to certainly consider it [a draft], and I can tell you, this has always been an option on the table.... But ultimately, this is a policy matter between meeting the demands for the nation's security by one means or another.'...
"Currently there are 162,000 US troops in Iraq, the most there has been since the US invasion of Iraq in March 2003. 'I do agree that come the spring, some variables will have to change - either the degree to which the American ground forces, the marines and the army in particular, are deployed around the world to include Iraq, or the length of time they're deployed in one tour, or the length of time they enjoy at home. Those are, essentially, the three variables,'' Lt Lutte said." Please pray for our soldier, that God strengthen their faith, and that His will be done!
Overstretched US cuts aid to Israel: "America has been forced to withhold funding from its key ally in the Middle East amid the strain of paying for its expensive military campaign in Iraq.... The diversion of funds has caused a budget shortfall in Israel that forced Ehud Olmert, the prime minister, to convene an emergency cabinet meeting.... More worryingly for Israel, there are fears the shortfall will have a significant impact on the ability of the country to defend itself....
"United Nations staff yesterday unanimously voted against an expanded UN presence in Iraq.... The organisation's staff association said it could not put up with 'the unacceptably high level of risk to the safety and security of UN personnel.'"
Iranian Computer Game Has Americans Abducting Iranian Nuclear Scientists: "A new Iranian computer game has players trying to free two Iranian nuclear scientists who are kidnapped by American forces.... On their way to visit to the tomb of the Prophet Mohammed's grandson in Iraq, Said and Maryam are kidnapped by American forces. Iran appoints the head of its special forces commando unit to head the operation to release the nuclear scientists.... 'It encourages the culture of martyrdom and defense of the rights.... It opposes violence and terrorism and the anarchy promoted by the Americans and Israelis.'" SeeToying with death: Learning to love evil & crave violence
Police storm Christian's home: "Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ... is urging Iranians to prepare for the coming of the Mahdi.... Shiites believe the 12th imam disappeared as a child in the year 941, but when he returns he will reign on earth for seven years, before bringing about a final judgment and the end of the world....
"...converts from Islam to Christianity are labeled apostate and subject to the death penalty. Christian pastors are under constant surveillance, and many are forced to sign documents saying they will not allow Muslims to be in their worship services....
"..official Iranian radio broadcast a lengthy series on the imminent appearance of a messianic figure who will defeat Islam's enemies and impose Islamic Shiite rule over the entire world – even speculating on specific dates the so-called 'Mahdi' will be revealed.... After the coming of the 12th imam, or Mahdi, 'liberal democratic civilization' will be found only in 'history museums,' explained the program. ...
"'Another beautiful moment of the Savior's appearance is the coming down of Prophet Jesus (PBUH) from heaven,' says the report. 'Hazrat Mahdi receives him courteously and asks him to lead the prayers. But Jesus says you are more qualified for this than me....

Hamas... capture priceless Palestinian Authority intelligence archives in Gaza: "The US, British and Israeli intelligence services may have suffered their greatest debacle in the war on Islamist terror.... Hamas has taken possession of hundreds of thousands of documents cataloguing the clandestine operations of Western intelligence services in the Middle East... It is now the owner of complete archives of Palestinian undercover links with foreign intelligence services going back decades, with names of spies, political collaborators and double agents....

Was Osama Right? "During the Cold War, two things came to be known and generally recognized in the Middle East.... If you did anything to annoy the Russians, punishment would be swift and dire. If you said or did anything against the Americans, not only would there be no punishment; there might even be some possibility of reward, as the usual anxious procession of diplomats and politicians, journalists and scholars and miscellaneous others came with their usual pleading inquiries: 'What have we done to offend you? What can we do to put it right?'"
'Mickey Mouse' promotes jihad: "Palestinian children are being entertained and indoctrinated on television by a Mickey Mouse-knockoff who teaches them to fight for Israel's destruction and Islam's domination over the entire world... a squeaky-voiced Mickey Mouse look-alike named Farfur.... Farfur and his co-host... take every opportunity to indoctrinate young viewers with teachings of Islamic supremacy, hatred of Israel and the U.S. and support of 'resistance' – the Palestinian euphemism for terrorism."

Al-Qaeda ‘planning big British attack’ (Times): "AL-QAEDA leaders in Iraq are planning the first 'large-scale' terrorist attacks on Britain and other western targets with the help of supporters in Iran, according to a leaked intelligence report. Spy chiefs warn that one operative had said he was planning an attack on 'a par with Hiroshima and Nagasaki' in an attempt to 'shake the Roman throne', a reference to the West."
Britain to Stop Using 'War on Terror' Phrase: "'In the U.K., we do not use the phrase 'war on terror' because we can't win by military means alone, and because this isn't us against one organized enemy with a clear identity and a coherent set of objectives,' Benn will say....
"...Democrats on the U.S. House Armed Services Committee banned the phrase 'global war on terror' from the draft Pentagon budget, arguing that the term was used to bolster the administration's position that the war in Iraq is necessary in the campaign against Islamist terrorism. Republican minority leader Rep. John Boehner slammed the move, calling it 'an absurd effort to deny the fact that America is battling terrorism on a global scale.'" See The emerging New World Order
The Fog of Rape: "There are enough rape and sexual assault stories coming out of Iraq these days to keep Americans variously outraged and confused. ... Both stories, however, contain enough errors to raise questions about whether the rape-assault rate is as high as suggested.... The same woman also was prominently featured in the Times story, where she said she was 'manipulated into sex.' Not quite rape, in other words. The Times made a much bigger mistake in featuring another woman -- Amorita Randall... who said she had been raped twice while in the service.... As it turned out, Randall was never in Iraq and there is no record of any sexual assault. The Times has run a correction.... Doubtless many women have suffered what they report. Doubtless, too, some women exaggerate sexual assault stories."
Justice fines ITT $100M for illegal export of night-vision goggle technology to China: "'The size of the penalty shows how severely the government regards any sale of sensitive military technology to a potential adversary....

Between State and Revolution: "Sometime in the next few weeks, Iran is likely to offer a 'compromise formula' under which it would suspend its enrichment program, as demanded by the Security Council, in exchange for a suspension of sanctions.... The expected climb-down is sure to bring back the Baker-Hamilton 'realists' with fresh calls for offering the mullahs a seat at the high table. It would also prompt the guilt-ridden 'idealists,' who blame the U.S. for whatever goes wrong in the world, to urge 'Bush the warmonger' to engage the Islamic Republic in a constructive dialogue, whatever that might mean. The French and the Russians would applaud the mullahs and urge the Americans to be 'reasonable.' So, what should the Bush administration do...?" See

The Path to Hysteria: "I considered it a privilege when asked to write the script for [ABC's]'The Path to 9/11.' I felt duty-bound from the outset to focus on a single goal -- to represent our recent pre-9/11 history as the evidence revealed it to be. The American people deserve to know that history: They have paid for it in blood....
"In addition to the death threats and hate mail directed at me, and my grotesque portrayal as a maddened right-winger, there developed an impassioned search for incriminating evidence on everyone else connected to the film. And in director David Cunningham, the searchers found paydirt! His father had founded a Christian youth outreach mission. The whiff of the younger Mr. Cunningham's possible connection to this enterprise was enough to set the hounds of suspicion baying. A religious mission!...

14 Islamic terorists identified in OKC bombing: "The mastermind of the 1993 WTC, 1995 OKC and 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, sent 9/11 'wannabe' hijacker Zacharias Moussaoui to live with Lattimore in Norman while Moussaoui attended the Norman OK Airman flight school....
"Three other Islamic terrorist men... were seen with McVeigh in OKC moments before the bombing by witness Debbie Burdick. The three men were arrested and bomb-sniffing dogs found traces of explosives in their luggage. However, they were released upon intervention of the FBI shortly thereafter....
"[Congressman] Rohrabacher was vice chair of the House Task Force on Unconventional Warfare and Terrorism. His director, Yousef Bodansky, specifically warned Rohrabacher in Feb and March 1995, before the OKC bombing, and again in May 1995, of the Islamic terrorist backing of two 'lily whites,' McVeigh and Nichols, to do the OKC bombing....
"Delahunt is also a friend and public supporter in Congress of Islamic and Communist backer, Hugo Chavez, the dictator of Venezuela.... It will not be incompetence or coincidence if Rohrabacher and Delahunt continue the cover up of Islamic terrorists in the OKC bombing."
Dana Rohrabacher’s Troubling Friends: "Key to understanding Rohrabacher’s ties to radical Islamic groups and the causes they espouse are several trips Rohrabacher has made to Qatar, paid for by the Islamic Institute and the Government of Qatar... During the April 2001 trip, however – just months before the 9-11 attacks - Rohrabacher met privately with Taliban Foreign Minister Mullah Wakil Ahmed Muttawakil. Wakil on the fringes of the conference.... Wakil reportedly asked Rohrabacher to lobby the Bush administration for an increase in foreign aid to Afghanistan, apparently in exchange for a Taliban pledge to allow U.S. oil company UNOCAL to build a pipeline to bring oil from land-locked Central Asia to Pakistan.... The pipeline project, as well as political support for the Taliban, were earlier championed by the Clinton administration. See The emerging New World Order
Daily analysis 9-7-06: "The good news is that a political debate over the situation in Iraq—how it deteriorated and what to do about it—now rages in America. But against the backdrop of a midterm election campaign, there has been little room for a constructive discourse about the war.
This was Council on Foreign Relations' home page introduction to an article full of bad news. The above word "debate" is misleading, since few know enough facts to truly debate. Instead people "dialogue" the issues -- which is "good news" to those who want to prepare the masses for their global agenda. That's because most people rely on a media that emphasizes what it wants us to think -- and omits what it prefers to hide. The "dialogue" simply reinforces the misinformation. See Secure in Jesus
Annan, Not Israel, to Decide on Makeup of Peacekeeping Force: "A new row is brewing between Israel and the United Nations over which of the U.N.'s member-states should be eligible to contribute troops to a mission to keep the peace between Israel and Shi'ite terrorists in Lebanon. Countries that do not recognize and have diplomatic relations with Israel should not participate in a beefed-up UNIFIL mission in Lebanon, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's government declared."
Peacekeeping Force Won't Help, May Hurt, Israel, Analyst Says: "The deployment of an international force in southern Lebanon could strengthen Hizballah and even pave the way for an al Qaeda presence in southern Lebanon, and therefore Israel should abandon the idea, a senior Israeli lawmaker said."

France Praises Iran's 'Stabilizing Role': "The French minister's praise for the Islamic regime came on the day Hizballah's representative in Iran told a gathering in Tehran that his organization would put into effect the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini's call for the 'cancerous tumor' (Israel) to be eliminated.... France has strong historical links with Lebanon, a country it administered between 1920 and 1943. After the Iranian revolution, however, its ties with the small Mediterranean nation were severely strained when Hizballah killed 58 French troops.... France has led opposition within the European Union to moves for the 25-nation bloc to outlaw Hizballah and cut off its European sources of funding, as requested by Israel and the U.S." SeeDeceptive alliances
Israel’s Disproportionate Response: "The second reason that using the term 'disproportionate' is silly is that most of the major and earth shattering events of history seem to be disproportionate responses to apparently trivial incidents.... Of course we all realize that those seemingly trivial incidents did not really trigger great upheavals all on their own. They might have been the proverbial straw that pushed things one step too far. The little incident is merely the small visible part of the iceberg. Only a fool would say that World War II was England’s disproportionate response to Hitler."

The Jews took no one's land: "When Mark Twain visited the Holy Land in the 19th century, he was greatly disappointed.... The land we now know as Israel was practically deserted. By the beginning of the 20th century, that began to change. Jews from all over the world began to return to their ancestral homeland.... In 1854... Jews constituted two-thirds of the population of that holy city.
"...even when the Islamic Ottoman Empire ruled the region, the Muslim population in Jerusalem was minimal.... And even though Muslims today claim Jerusalem as the third holiest site in Islam, when the city was under Islamic rule, they had little interest in it.

FBI officials told reporters last week they were searching for possible Hezbollah agents operating inside the U.S. amid concerns escalating tensions with Iran could trigger attacks on American soil."
Homeland Security. Oklahoma terror network to assist Hezbollah attacks in US? "There is a terror network... working directly with AlFuqra, AlQaeda, Islamic Jihad, Hamas and Hezbollah (and previously with Iraq and currently with Syria and Iran) capable of assisting in carrying out the current threats of Hezbollah attacks in the US.... Members of this network were directly involved in the 1993 WTC bombing, OKC bombing and the 9/11 attacks."
Europe won't call Hezbollah terrorists: "Despite growing international awareness about the dangers posed to Mideast stability by Hizballah, the European Union has yet to outlaw the group or move to block its funding."
American bombs aid Israel´s 10-Day victory plan: "The American government is rushing a shipment of precision bombs to Israel, which is carrying out a 10-day plan to weaken Hizbullah before foreign pressure forces a cease fire. The Bush Administration has given Israel approximately two weeks to continue attacks.... The shipment of bombs is part of an arms sales deal approved last year
Pacifists versus peace: "One of the many failings of our educational system is that it sends out into the world people who cannot tell rhetoric from reality. They have learned no systematic way to analyze ideas, derive their implications and test those implications against hard facts. 'Peace' movements are among those who take advantage of this widespread inability to see beyond rhetoric to realities."
Questions and Answers on Hostilities Between Israel and Hezbollah: "The current armed conflict between Hezbollah and Israel is governed by international treaty as well as the rules of customary international humanitarian law. The treaty, specifically, common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions of 1949 to which Israel is a party, sets forth minimum standards for all parties to a conflict between a state party such as Israel and a non-state party such as Hezbollah."

Proposal for UN Standing Army Would See UN Head Trumping Security Council: "A book launched at the United Nations headquarters today proposes a permanent standing UN army with 'rapid reaction capability' under the sole direct command of the UN.... Unlike previous proposals for a UN army, these latest proposals call for an army consisting of troops that would not be accountable to any nation or state.... The UN force would consist of 12,000 to 15,000 'civilian, police, judicial, military, and relief professionals' composed of 'individually recruited' volunteers from many countries, which means that this army 'within a single command structure' would have direct loyalty to the UN, 'avoiding divided loyalties.'"
NCLB (No Child Left Behind) outrages: "Military recruiters want to 'own the schools,' flatly stating so in the School Recruiting Program Handbook. Here's what the handbook wants of teachers, called 'centers of influence': 'Encourage students to defer college until serving in the Army.' School districts apparently view the military's 'rights' as somehow exceeding those of parents and students.... [and] go all out accommodating military recruiters daily.
"...after attending the year's first school staff meeting, the Army treated teachers to a sumptuous lunch in the school cafeteria....
"Military recruiters work cafeterias or hallways at every urban, suburban, and rural public school.... In a captive market (compulsory attendance), isolated from advisers whose foremost goal is their student's best interests (parents), salesmen pitch products they're not obligated to provide (read the enlistment contract), spinning only the 'sexy' stuff (try pushing discussions about death and amputations), to youth deeply worried about how they'll make it in this world."
WMD Recovered In Iraq: "Reading from unclassified portions of a document developed by the U.S. intelligence community, Santorum said, 'Since 2003, coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons munitions which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent....

America's Other Border: "...the U.S.-Mexican border has dominated much of the U.S. public's attention in recent months. Yet, as revelations emerge about an alleged Islamic terrorist cell in Canada, the calls for better control over the world's longest undefended border now have new life....
"When the formal allegations were made Tuesday, they included a plot to seize parliament and behead the prime minister... as well as plans to blow up three government buildings in southern Ontario.... Canadian police seized three times the amount of explosives used by Timothy McVeigh. Unlike McVeigh and other U.S.-bred terrorists, the Canadian cell was composed of Islamic extremists."
Iran and its neighbors are preparing for war: "Military activity in the Gulf has been increasing tremendously in the past few months. According to British sources, the stock of weapons, missiles and combat planes in the six neighboring countries to Iran is now three times what it was at the onset of the Iraq war in 2003."
Bush's new Iraqi government betrays America: "The new Iraqi government assured the Iranians on Friday that it believes Iran has a right to develop a nuclear program and will not allow Iraqi territory to be used to 'threaten' Iran.
