An enemy of God and Islam

The University of Mass. Amherst says it is surprised at the protests among international students over a new $65 per semester fee to pay for the costs of the federal government spying on them.

John Kerry is having surgery on his shoulder, which he injured picking up a baby.

The LA Times has a story today saying that the US claim of Iraq having portable weapons labs was based on a single source, a defector the US never spoke to directly, or knew who he was. It’s on the front page. Does this sound familiar? If so, it’s because your single source--namely, me--told you about this on February 8 (I read it in the Independent, which also credited the source for the “45 minutes” claim). The LA Times adds details, though, including that the source was the brother of an aide to Chalabi. And they quote Scott Ritter, who destroys his own credibility as an arms inspector by reporting that he committed the cardinal sin of intelligence work by telling his source what he wanted to be told--“So we outlined the gaps in our understanding of the Iraqi program, including the mobile bioweapons labs. Basically, we gave them a shopping list.”

But is it art?: “Artist Dyes Iceberg Red in Greenland.”

YOU’RE SO VAIN, I’LL BET YOU THINK THIS SONG IS ABOUT YOU, part 2: AP story: “John Kerry cited a Bible verse Sunday to criticize leaders who have ‘faith but has no deeds,’ prompting President Bush's spokesman to accuse Kerry of exploiting Scripture for a political attack. Kerry never mentioned Bush by name during his speech.”

Similarly, the new Hamas leader calls Bush an “enemy of God and Islam.” No kidding.
